Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to vacation! The unit is on the 3rd floor, overlooking the Pacific. Mornings can be spent sitting on patio watching dolphins swimming in the surf. Walking the boardwalk, or sunning on the beach. The sunset is spectacular from your patio, even the living room!

The condo is spacious, and has all your needs available.

Cindy, the property manager, goes above and beyond to make your stay pleasurable, right down to the wine!

We will definitely be back next year.

Fantastic condo. I have found it less expensive and more comfortable to rent apartments and or condos when traveling on business trips. This condo has it all, 3rd, top floor looking out across the beach to the Pacific Ocean. Unforgettable sunsets from the private balcony, dolphins everyday, people watching is enjoyable 24 hrs a day. The condo is like new on the inside, comfortable furnishings throughout including deck and beach furniture. All the amenities of home. Parking space in a secure garage. The neighborhood is loaded with all you need within walking distance, groceries, beverages, restaurants, rentals. Everyone we met on our 4 day stay were extremely kind and friendly. I had the pleasure of talking to the owners. As my grandpa would say "Son there good people", The property manager Cindy, she is great. I have got to get back to this condo for vacation.

My sister and friends had a girls trip to San Diego and stayed at Sunset Sands. The condo is very comfortable and the views are remarkable. The beach is just steps away from the front door. We walked the beach every day and enjoyed the numerous places to eat within walking distance. We were able to cook or own meals when we wanted to and there is a lovely grocery store right down the street. We also went to La Jolla and Coronado Island.. My family and I are returning in November.
