Lots of places to eat are right across the street and nearby.

LOCATION: Most everything is 15 minutes away!

-->WALK 10 minutes across the street to the Mission Valley Mall for great restaurants, shopping, and movies!

About Bonnie

We love traveling and wherever we go, we prefer to live like the locals do. By sharing our home with others, we want to give that experience to our guests.

When kids came along, we realized that we had outgrown this home. We found another place nearby, because we love living here so much that we didn't want to leave.

Other things we love: family time, beach time, cooking, a good book, music, exploring new places, and most of all love, laughter and having fun!

We hope you will enjoy living like the locals do in our place as much as we have. Thanks for checking us out and we hope to talk with you soon. :)

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Bonnie was so helpful and excellent at communicating with us. While we haven't stayed at her condo, we did contact her about possibly renting her condo. We are moving to the area from overseas and don't know the area that well. She was quick to get back to us and answered our questions. Unfortunately she had a prior commitment and we were not able to rent at the time but I will contact her in the future if I have a need for a condo in the area because of her willingness to help, her great communication with us and her offing to help us even though we were not staying at her place. Thanks Bonnie for your help and for being so nice!"

Cozy condo

Recently stayed the month of December 2016 and was very pleased. Furnished very well, clean, and good location. Many places are within walking distance. You'll not be disappointed if you decide to rent this condo.

Comfortable Condo, Excellent Location!

  • 5 of 5

We are a military family that was waitlisted for housing and needed a place to stay for a month. This condo was PERFECT!! The location to Miramar was a big selling point. After arriving, we realized that the kitchen was fulling equipped with pots, pans, coffee maker, crock pot, food processor, blender, etc,.... We tend to cook a lot so that came in super handy. The condo was beautiful, clean, and had a great set up. Having the parking under the building with remotes to access it made me feel very safe since I had to load and unload a 3 year old frequently. We would like to have stayed permanently! We cannot say enough good things about this place. This was our first experience and it was a great one!

Great location; great unit

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 8 weeks and we're already booked for 2017 and 2018!!!! This was our first experience with VRBO and we couldn't have been happier. Bonnie, the owner, was very accommodating and easy to work with. The unit is very nice, clean, well stocked and very thoughtfully supplied with extras - beach towels, soft sided cooler, wheeled bag for grocery shopping, discount cards for the nearest pharmacy and grocery store. The complex was quiet; the location is great for shopping, restaurants, movies, trolley stops( even if you don't have a car). Walking/bike path is directly behind the complex. Building has a locked bike room in the garage, if you have a bike. Excellent TV and internet service. Having a washer and dryer in the apartment was a real plus. Excellent vacation rental!!!!!

A well located and appointed condominium

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 6 weeks at this lovely condominium. It was immaculately clean, beautifully decorated and contained every imaginable thing that you would need for comfortable living. The kitchen was so well supplied that I made cookies and muffins when my grandchildren visited. We found it to be a very quiet complex that was close to all our San Diego destinations. Although we rented a car, we liked that we could walk a few minutes to the light rail and did not have to take the car everywhere.
