About Jim Buysse

Jill and Jim have been married for over 40 years. Jim is a farm kid from Illinois who moved to Colorado after college and met Jill. They married, enjoyed mountain living and then moved to California in the early 1990's.

Jim Buysse purchased this condo in 2014

Why Jim Buysse chose Pacific Beach

We've always loved San Diego and the amenities it provides. We are especially fond of Pacific Beach, and we actually stayed at See the Sea in the 1980s when Jill's parents wintered there from Denver. We thought it the perfect location from which to enjoy a beach experience. You are also just minutes from the Zoo, Sea World and many, many other attractions. It really doesn't get any better than this.

What makes this condo unique

You'll find yourself right in the heart of Pacific Beach, just steps from a walk on the Pier, the surf and the water...surrounded by great shops and restaurants. And you have a marvelous condo with great amenities to serve as your base.

Comfy, cozy but very loud.

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed being so close to the ocean. Rooftop deck was amazing! But the area is very loud, which I anticipated, but much louder than I imagined. Very convenient to walk around to dinner and shops too. Overall a fun trip

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this beautiful condo for a adult getaway/birthday celebration. I could not have asked for anything more. The location was perfect, lots to do and see. I rented a car which we really did not use much because we could walk to just about anywhere we wanted to go. While we were there, the garage door opener did malfunction. The owner's were responsive and very apologetic. It really was not a big deal as other tenants in the building were kind enough to help us get in. Everything you could think of needing is provided. I was even surprised to find that they even had beach toys for kids. These came in handy as my girlfriend who lives in San Diego had a little one, we were able to pack up the toys and head to the beach for a day in the sun. I highly recommend this condo, I know I will be booking again in the future!!

Great place, great location! Above all, great people!

  • 5 of 5

The location is fantastic. A few steps from the beach, restaurants, bars, cafes, grocery stores, and a pharmacy. The short drive from the airport made this a great option since we flew in late at night and departed early in the morning. The condo made a great base of operations (even though we were only in town to go the Breeders' Cup at Del Mar Racetrack).

The condo has everything you need and truly feels like a home away from home. Definitely exceeded my expectations.

To top it all off, Jill and Jim are awesome to deal with. They provided excellent instructions well before our trip started, and were easy to contact at any time. We ran into one minor issue (random issue that could have happened at anytime). I called Jill and Jim, they quickly responded and did everything they could to rectify the situation as fast as possible. They provided a work-around and apologized (even though it was not a big issue at all).

The only thing that I could see some people as seeing as negative is the bar across the street. It does get pretty loud at night in the street because the bar's doors are kept open. It didn't bother me at all...the fan in the bedroom drowns out most of the sound, but very light sleepers may have an issue.

Overall: great people to deal with, great condo, great location! If I'm heading back to San Diego (and I hope I will be sooner rather than later), this will be the first place I check for availability. Thank you so much Jill and Jim!!

Loved it.

  • 4 of 5

The owners were great. Everything as said it would be. Nice, clean condo! Interesting people to watch from the balcony. We got used to it and used a fan to sleep, but the bar across from us was louder than I expected. Though I knew going in that it was there, and it looked like a fun place to catch a game or have a beer. Cool view of the pier. Had a great time
