Property description

**** Discounts for bookings within 2 weeks of arrival - contact us for details ****

Relax on your private deck with beautiful views of San Diego Bay, the downtown skyline, Coronado Island, and the nearby mountains. Watch the fighter jets take off from North Island and frequent sail boat races. Where else can you have lovely sunrises and watch the sunset reflected off the skyline from the same deck chair? And YES, all the view photos shown in our listing are taken from our (your) patio deck!

Our home is located less than 10 minutes from the airport, Shelter Island, Harbor Island, downtown, and walking distance to restaurants, shops, yoga, a bakery, farmer's market (Sundays) and the bay. You can see the hills of Balboa Park where the San Diego Zoo is located. Sea World is 15 minutes around the corner. The border is 25 minutes to the south. The lights in Mexico are visible at night from your deck! Walk over to buy fresh fish from Point Loma Seafood, pick up a bottle of wine from The Grape Connections on your way by and stop at the bakery for some dessert or fresh bread for the morning. Or skip all that and enjoy one of HarborTown's 17 beers on tap.

Newly added to this listing are a number of local attractions that we think you will like, along with our reviews. Look right under 'Location' to learn more and click on 'View Guide powered by gogobot' right above Owner Info.

Your cozy apartment with private entrance and private deck includes everything you'll need for making your San Diego vacation a most memorable experience. The kitchenette is newly remodeled and the queen bed is very comfortable. We think you will be most comfortable with two people but please inquire if you have need for a 3rd guest. Parking is excellent.

Your hosts, Toni and Dave, live just above and will be on hand, when needed, to answer any questions and provide recommendations for the many activities and sights San Diego has to offer. When we are home we're pretty quiet so you will hardly know we're here. You're likely to see more of our cat than us! If you want to take it easy and save money, don't rent a car and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. There is a path along the water that is very nice at night. We often walk down there. Overall, we think we have the best value in all of Pt Loma. Please read through our reviews to see what those who visit with us are saying.

*** RECENT UPDATE. As we travel more, we are also open to renting the main part of our home, 2 bedrooms, located above the apartment with the same, great views, plus a private deck and garden area in the back, and more. Please let us know if you are interested, especially if the time you wish to visit shows unavailable. ***

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We met on Dave's birthday (which is New Year's Eve) in 2007 and found we both enjoyed traveling, working in our garden, having friends over to our home, and especially being together. In 2010 we became engaged and in 2011 we bought our home in Point Loma. We were happily married in August 2014. When we first stood on the deck and looked out at the same view you will have, we knew this was the home we wanted. We've spent the first year remodeling and making both our living area and the apartment into a warm, inviting, comfortable place to live and share with the many new VRBO friends who will be coming to vacation with us. We've traveled to a number of wonderful destinations and we often use VRBO to find a place to stay rather than the sterile confines of a hotel. Everyone we've met has been very gracious and friendly, and that is what you can expect from us. Toni has retired and is usually available for questions. When we are home we're pretty quiet so you will hardly know we're here. You're likely to see more of our cat than us!
