Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

If you want to enjoy the ocean and the amenities of San Diego, there’s no better place than On Top of Sunset Cliffs. Sitting right on top of the beginning of the cliffs, this 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom condo provides views and sounds of the waves from every room. If you get tired of being amazed by the pelicans flying by at eye level, counting the surfers riding the waves, or watching the superlative sunsets from your bedroom, balcony, or living room, there's always the oversized jetted tub to relieve your stress or watch one of the two HD televisions.

The stainless steel kitchen and open floor plan provides a wonderful ambiance for entertaining or simply for enjoying your time at home. All furnishings were purchased new in 2011.

It's close to all the attractions: Less than 3 miles to Sea World, 4 miles to the Trolly, 5 miles to Belmont Park, 8 miles to the San Diego Padre's ballpark and downtown San Diego, 9 miles to the San Diego Zoo and museums of Balboa Park, or 10 miles to the San Diego Charger's stadium.

It's all here.

About The Owner

We are both educators. We started our careers in Ohio, spent 10 years in Wyoming, and eventually moved to San Diego in 1990. Although we love to travel, once you visit here you'll see why we now live in San Diego. Our home is 1 mile from this vacation rental, and we plan to sell our house and move into the condo part time when we retire.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2011

Why The Owner chose Ocean Beach

Being teachers for over 30 years, we know how important it is to get away from 'normal life' and forget about work while relaxing in a new environment. We looked for a condo in San Diego for over 2 years before finding this gem. Ocean breezes, the sound of the waves, pelicans being so close that you can almost touch them, and the closeness to so many attractions make this a great place to live.

What makes this condo unique

It takes about 1 minute to walk to the closest beach (just the time to walk down the stairs). A five minute walk south takes you to the Sunset Cliffs Natural Park, and a five minute walk north takes you to downtown Ocean Beach, one of the most famous and unique communities in San Diego. With its farmer's market / street fair every Wednesday, it's a great place to pick up flowers, locally grown food, snacks, and see live entertainment.

Great location and responsive hosts

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four thoroughly enjoyed our week long stay over the Christmas Holiday. The view from the living room and master bedroom are great. It’s about a 15 minute walk down to ocean beach and Lots of restaurants and bars. Good location to enjoy the San Diego sights. We would definitely rent again for our next San Diego excursion.

Spectacular Scenery - Cool Vibe - Didn't Want to Leave

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four, including two teenagers 16 & 18, spent the week before Christmas On Top of Sunset Cliffs. Usually a week at any vacation destination is a couple of days too long - not this time! We would have gladly traded in upcoming Christmas to stay another couple of weeks soaking up the cool Ocean Beach vibe at this spectacular property and further exploring the San Diego area. The location of this condo cannot be beat! Looking up and down the coast from the balcony, there was not one property that had a better view (especially of the breathtaking sunsets). The condo inside was not fancy, instead it was very comfortable so that we could relax and feel right at home with the added benefit of leaving the windows always open (no bugs!) to hear the lull of waves crashing. The owners were very attentive and thoughtful - stocking the kitchen and bathrooms with all the necessities - and going beyond by providing area information and personal recommendations (try the burgers at Hodads!), binoculars to use for watching surfers and sail boats, better Wi-Fi than at home, and a couple thoroughly enjoyed bottles of local wine and craft beer. Everyday we hiked (walked) along the coast either north to the Ocean Beach Pier or south along Sunset Cliffs Blvd. We also walked a quick 12 blocks to Ocean Beach's Newport Ave everyday to get at least one meal - so many restaurant choices! We also ventured into San Diego and took the trolley tour including Coronado Island and Old Town, visited the Midway Museum, went to the San Diego Zoo (a must!), and spent a day in the Gas Lamp Quarter shopping & eating. There were many things on our list that we just did not have time to explore - can't wait to go back!

Most beautiful views of the Pacific

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I along with our son thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The condo has everything we needed. Donn's instructions for checking in, use of the facilities and booklet with maps, recommendations for shopping, restaurants and things to do was so helpful and very well organized. Waking up to the sounds of the Pacific and seeing that view was something we will never forget. We hated to leave!

Space was beautiful with the most outrageous overlook of the Pacific!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with my sister & parents & were so incredibly pleased. Plenty of space, clean, comfortable & the view, just breathtaking. Watching the beautiful San Diego sunset from the privacy of the balcony was more than we could ask for. Great location, great for morning walks in a quiet neighborhood & very close to the ocean beach pier.

This condo is magical!

  • 5 of 5

You have to love the sound of pounding surf, because the ocean is right below the front windows. We left the window and sliding glass door open all of the time! No other dwellings are easily visible from the balcony and since the surf sounds drown out any other sounds, it is easy to feel beautifully isolated.

The condo itself is very well supplied with everything you might need. It is clean and well-laid out. We loved it. The only suggestion we might have is for some sort of sun shade on the balcony. In late October the sun was low enough that it was blinding; we had hoped to eat out on the balcony, but there really wasn't any escape from the sun.

Owner's Response: One of the reasons we purchased here is that the side of the building facing the ocean curves back to both sides. This means that, unlike almost all buildings, you can’t see either unit to the left or right, giving our guests that feeling of “beautiful isolation”. As for the suggestion of a sunshade, the condo’s rules don’t allow one to be installed. We feel it’s a small tradeoff for the sounds and views from the balcony. Most of the year it isn’t a problem to eat, drink, and be merry on the balcony, and when the sun sets, it's quite magical.
