Off Season Specials: Whether you're coming for a convention or just want to beat the crowds, some of the best deals ....great weather, too....are in the Off season!

So many things to see and do in San Diego year-round: One suggestion....

The WINTER offers incomparable whale-watching! You'll experience the thrill of a lifetime when you pull alongside one of these majestic creatures of the deep...but shhhh. Must not disturb them as they're on their migrating journey, many looking to mate, or recently have given birth. Dolphins abound, as well, playing amongst the waves.

Any sports fans out there?: With the Major League Baseball's PADRES poised to do some ownership, ya' know... good seats will always be available at family friendly PETCO PARK.

San Diego is also home of the NFL's AFC Western Division SAN DIEGO CHARGERS! Good seats are hard to come by, but being the proud owner of seven on the 45 yard line, Plaza....well, talk to me!

December brings the famed POINSETTIA and HOLIDAY BOWLS....perennial nail-biters. We're just 15 minutes from Qualcomm Stadium. My good pal and extra ticket guy is the world famous DION RICH...gate-crasher extraordinaire. Always good seats plus great deals on golf!

Speaking of golf, fabulous, well groomed public courses abound. You're never more than 30 minutes away from a terrific golf outing. And TORREY PINES, home of the 2008 U.S. Open and its exciting duel to the finish, is right up the road in near-by LaJolla.

Sea World and the San Diego Zoo: You're just 10 minutes to legendary Shamu at SEA WORLD. Year-round attractions geared to the season. Always a fun day!

Now, the SAN DIEGO ZOO speaks for itself. Located in BALBOA PARK and a 15-20 minute drive, you'll need a full day to enjoy all the sights, shows and exotic animal attractions.

Balboa Park is also home to some thirteen museums, including the fabulous Rueben H. Fleet Aerospace Museum.

Brain challenging, interactive exhibits geared to young and old, fabulously interesting films in the most unusual theater you can imagine!

Don't miss out on anything.

Great location, pleasant decor

  • 5 of 5

The 2-bedroom Diamond apartment in PB was perfect for my husband and I for our week's stay in late March 2009. We were joined for the last 2 nights by 2 friends and their daughter and it was fine for that length of time but might have been a bit cramped had they been there the full week. However, for 2 adults and a couple of kids, it would be perfect (really, it was just having only one bathroom that would be an issue for larger groups, and maybe that's no big deal for some).

The apartment is very nicely decorated, great kitchen (with all the necessary dishes, cooking utensils, appliances, etc.), nice beds and bathroom. The little patio is very nice - great place to bbq and sit for morning coffee or an evening glass of wine. Also, it's nice to have off-street parking because parking is at a premium in PB - the garage is a bit tight but we managed fine with a Kia Sportage. We enjoyed the neighbourhood very much - close enough to PB activities, but not too close as it can get a bit rambunctious at the bars later at night. There were some great restaurants close by and lots of grocery stores to choose from (Trader Joe's, Henry's, Ralph's). The property manager, Patti, was very responsive to our needs and only a phone call away - we only needed her once but she helped us out (re. internet access - she found a solution to the issue) - other than that we didn't have to get in touch with her because everything was in order in the apartment and was just as described on the website.

Enjoyed: Pacific Beach Ale House, Filippi's Pizza & Pasta, great Thai take-out at ra-ka-de-ka around the corner. Also Broken Yolk (a short drive away) had an excellent breakfast.

Owner's Response: These kind folks are one of the reasons I just love this business so much! They've come down from Canada to enjoy our SoCal weather and ambience....please come again soon! Having quality properties helps a lot, too! In addition to our state-side guests, we're seeing so many travelers from around the world this year. Along with our Canadian friends, we're greeting many families from the U.K., Australia, Sweden, The Netherlands, Spain, Germany and Ireland. Come one, come all!

We had a great experience. The location was excellent as it was close to the beach and in walking distance to to many restaurants. The property was clean and well maintained and we really enjoyed the patio. Patti was excellent and responded to any of our needs. We enjoyed riding the bicycles provided. Other activities we enjoyed included walking the beach and visiting Balboa Park. We particularly enjoyed dining at the Pacific Beach Fish Shop which is an informal restaurant w/ terrific seafood. I would definitely recommend this property .

PB- the greatest place on Earth

  • 5 of 5

The place is terrific- decent location (5 min walk to the beach) and the 'extras' were a very nice touch- pet friendly, beach bikes, sand cart, chairs, and cooler. The place is very comfortable with plenty of fans and a nice front patio to unwind and relax with the door open. Patti was great to work with and we truly enjoyed our visit.

Great Location for a family

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in San Diego with our 2 young children. This home was clean and well equiped. It is located in a nice quite area and we felt safe walking to dinner every night. What you see in the pictures is what you get, we had no unpleasent surprises. The linens are nice and the beds are comfortable. The laundry facility was great and we returned home with a bag of clean clothes for a change. Our deposit was returned promptly as promised. I would definately recommend this property for families or couples looking for a nice quite stay, yet the location is a short trip to all the attractions. Great Escape Vacation Properties were great to work with and very professional and responsive. This was our first time renting a home rather then a hotel and based on this experience I am sure it won't be our last!

2 bedroom Pacific Beach

  • 4 of 5

Very comfortable and cute. Clean, new, quiet and private. The porch with grill was nice. The unit was smaller than expected from looking at the photo, but still very comfortable and worked great for 3 adults and 3 children. We expected it to be a bit closer to the beach. It was a little far with kids in tow.
