About Rob Christianson

Like most families, work, kids, school and sports keep us very busy throughout the week. Our two young boys are active with many different sports and we found ourselves running from one practice to the next. We wanted to find a place where our family could go and get away from the daily grind of normal life to relax and unwind. When we found this condo, we found our paradise. It has allowed us to spend quality family time together doing activities we enjoy such as walking to the beach, cruising around on beach cruisers, hiking local trails and picnicking at Salt Creek Park while watching the sunset. We feel very lucky to have found this beach side gem. Every time we visit, we thoroughly enjoy our time and hope you do the same. Thank You for considering our "Seaside Escape" for your next vacation.

Perfect location for SoCal vacation

  • 4 of 5

We loved our condo at Ritz Pointe, it was close to everything, Universal, Disney, beaches, whale watching, shopping, etc. Soaking in the hot tub was great after a long day of adventures. Condo was clean, decorated simply and tasteful, close to pool/hot tub, included parking and had everything we needed. THANKS!!!!

Great Amenities and Location

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely rental. Furnishings and decor were very nice. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils and appliances worked well. Really enjoyed the propane BBQ, as we like to prepare many of our meals when we have a monthly rental. Costco, Trader Joe's and Ralphs were within 10 minutes drive or less for our provisions. We loved to walk/hike and found the trail to the ocean an easy trek down and good workout on the way back up. The rental is well situated for exploring the area and even venturing on day trips to San Diego and Huntington Beach.

As others have mentioned previously, the closet space is limited to the front closet and guest bedroom walk-in since the master suite closet is unavailable, however, it is manageable.

Rob was very prompt with any questions we had. We would not hesitate to return.

Excellent location.

  • 4 of 5

We found the condo, very well equipped, clean & tidy, & not lacking anything. Good quality linens, outstanding showers with great water pressure. I walked to Salt Creek beach & my husband used the bike provided. It was a very scenic walk & a lovely beach, no crowds at all. It took me about 20 minutes one way. There are plenty of stores around for grocery shopping, all in all an excellent location. Rob is readily available to answer any questions or concerns. Highly recommended.

A wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned a few hours ago from the condo. Everything was just perfect. The place is much larger than it looks even in the photos. Very clean, including all linens. A gorgeous 1.2 mi walk to the beach on the path and through the neighborhood. Would definitely stay here again if we return to the area. Thanks!
