Since we just listed this condo in September there has been no opportunity for reviews. However we have been sharing our other properties for nearly 7 years. If you would like to hear about our style of management you can see the reviews on our other properties. They are listed on VRBO and the listing numbers are 232002, 322595, 223336 and 235770.
Even though the condo is beautiful we spend much of our time on the balcony enjoying the panoramic ocean view. On a clear day you can see La Jolla to the south and at sunset you can see the mountains of Catalina silhouetted against the sun to the north – yes, we are on an area of the coast where we face southwest instead of due west so the sunsets are in a northerly direction from here. It is close to San Diego for the culture, entertainment and airport. Beaches and surf are excellent for wading, swimming, boogie boarding and surfing. Many national surfing competitions are held within our view from the balcony.
Our condo is not well suited for extended visits by young children as the balcony is 40 feet off the ground and the railings would be climbable. As we were saying the balcony is a major living center and draw.
Bronze sculptures, leather bound books and granite surfaces set the tone for this special condo.
We usually walk when going to the harbor, movie theater and restaurants. Ruby’s restaurant is at the end of the pier and is a great destination when you want a short walk even if it is only for a cherry coke! There is also a well-stocked local grocery store just a few blocks away – Red and White. We sometimes stay for four or five days without taking our car out of the garage. Since it is an easy walk to the train station we even go to San Diego and Coronado Island without taking our car out.
There is an elevator that will take you from the gated, secure garage (two parking places) up to the ground level of the condo building. From there you have 15 steps that lead to our front porch. Once inside the condo it is single level. We are on the top – penthouse – level, thus the panoramic view. But when you walk down those 15 steps you are at street level – it will make sense when you get here. The condo has central heat but air conditioning is dependent on the ocean breezes – no central cooling. We do have Casa Blanca ceiling fans in each of the major rooms of the condo that circulate the air on those few warmer days. We have added a lot of architectural lighting to our condo, all on rheostat dimmers so you can set a low-light romantic mood or bring up the lights to jigsaw puzzle level.
The gas fireplace will help set the mood as well.
The living room TV is 70” and has a surround sound system so that it easily converts the living room into a media room. Our internet and telephone service is ATT U-Verse wireless. The TV satellite is DISH NETWORK with the corporate 200 plan in HD - and the DVR receiver operates both the master and the living room. Both TV’s are flat screen – 70” in the living room and 28“ in the master bedroom.
The Kitchen has many tools and gadgets to accommodate gourmet cooking. Appliances are Sub-Zero, Décor and Bosch. For coffee there are Keurig and Cusinart coffee makers. The four slice toaster comes in handy. We stock many herbs, spices, olive oil, vinegar etc. Our dining area seats 4 comfortably and two additional chairs can be added to seat 6.
The balcony is small but adequate. Very comfortable for 2 and can accommodate 4. Deep cushion Tropitone seating with ottoman. Tiltable umbrella provided for sunny afternoons. You must watch children closely on balcony - 40 foot drop.
Both master and guest beds are queen sized. There is a safe in the master closet that is large enough to accommodate lap top computers and still room for other items. Both bathrooms have roman tubs and rain forest shower heads.
There is a stackset gas washer/dryer in our condo.
The rooms are compact in size but very comfortable with current space planning and very well appointed.
We have a library of approximately 40 DVD’s – surfing movies and other light entertainment. Also some jigsaw puzzles, games and playing cards. Many classic books to read as well.
