                                                                Lovely relaxed bayside holiday!

                                                                Meredith K.

                                                                The property has lovely beach touches throughout and was a great place to stay for some sunshine. We walked everywhere, great location right on the bay to people watch and enjoy the sand and water. Quieter than the beach side and more sheltered from the wind so a great spot. Kitchen and laundry made the stay for our family really easy. We would definitely come back. Cindy was a joy and really helpful during our stay.

                                                                We loved our stay. A friendly place and people. Restful and close enough to anything we wanted to see. We hope to come back and stay here again. 5 star!

                                                                Great place and location!

                                                                Worked well for our family of 4!

                                                                Great spot for young family

                                                                Maria W.

                                                                Stayed at the Dunlin for one week with our 6 and 3 year old boys. The location was perfect! The patio opens out to the calm waters of the bay. The kids loved playing in the sand and riding their scooters on the trail right in front of the house. There are also some water sport rental (e.g. paddle boats, kayaks, SUP) spots close by. The house had plenty of space for the four of us. Just a short drive to Sea World, zoo, downtown, etc. So much to do in San Diego! We definitely plan to return.

                                                                We loved everything about our stay at this adorable place!

                                                                Our stay was all we hoped for and more! From the moment we spoke with Cindy she was extremely accommodating and helpful. She met us when we arrived with a very warm welcome which started off our week perfectly. The apartment was spotless and equipped with everything we needed. We were able to settle in and enjoy our anniversary week hassle free. We spent much of our time on the patio which is right on mission bay. When we did leave, we walked just about everywhere. The location is fantastic. Close to the ocean and restaurants. I can't say enough about our entire experience. We will definitely go back!

                                                                We really enjoyed our stay in this unit. Great location on the quieter inside. Lovely patio for your morning coffee. Comfortable bed. Fully equipped kitchen. Very warm and welcoming. Would come again!
