About the property

Fully Furnished One Bedroom, One Bath Condo Just Steps To Coronado Beach!

This beautifully maintained sixth-floor condo is in La Princesa Tower within the Coronado Shores luxury high-rise complex. You can walk next door to the historic Hotel Del Coronado. You will have views of the Pacific Ocean, Glorietta and San Diego Bays, and the graceful San Diego–Coronado Bridge. The condo has 24/7 security with gated entryway and includes one parking stall in an enclosed garage. The condo and tower were remodeled in 2016. The condo is fully furnished with an equipped kitchen and includes all linens. The large bedroom includes a king-size bed, walk-in closet, and an HD TV. The bathroom has a walk-in shower. A queen-size Tempur-Pedic sofa bed is in the living room, which allows sleeping for up to four guests total in the condo. The living room has a wet bar, "smart" TV, and DVD player (if you have Netflix at home, just log in here to watch). A furnished deck [“balcony” rather than “deck”?] fronts the entire width of the condo for enjoying outdoor cocktails and dining. There is a laundry room with a washer and dryer combination. Internet/Wi-Fi access along with Time Warner cable are included.

Coronado Shores has 4 pools (one with lap lanes) and 4 hot tub spas, 8 tennis courts, and a full-service fitness club that has a spa, sauna, showers, and state-of-the-art workout and weight-training equipment. The complex also includes a Beach Club with full bar, pool, and spa, and it hosts many activities. There are BBQ grills at each pool. For more information about the Shores’ facilities, visit the official website for the Coronado Shores Association at

Right outside your door, adventures are plentiful and within walking distance: strolling or running on the beach; biking the Silver Strand trail; having breakfast at Clayton's or the Night and Day Diner; renting a stand-up paddle board, kayak, sailboat, or motorboat (and taking lessons) at Seaforth; and going out for great food, music, and dancing nightly at Navy Seal Greg McPartlin's McP's Irish Pub, at Seal hangout Danny's Palm Bar & Grill (slam burgers), or at Peohe's, Hotel Del, or Il Fornaio (all upscale dining), and many others. The recently restored Village Theater is a great venue for movies. Try golfing along the bay at the Coronado golf course. Enjoy a live performance at Lamb's Player Theater or the Community Theater. Relax on the beach after surfing, boogie boarding, or shell collecting. Enjoy lounging in the pools and soaking up the sun. Some evenings you may just want to have an Alexander’s pizza delivered and watch a movie.

For getting around Coronado and San Diego without a car, there are many options. In the summer, there is a free shuttle bus every 15 minutes between Coronado Shores and the Ferry Landing. The San Diego transit trolleys and buses can take you anywhere off the island. The AmTrak Surfliner can take you up the coast to LA, Santa Barbara, or beyond. The coastal trains are an easy ferry ride across the bay in downtown San Diego. The Coronado Ferry can take you from the Ferry Landing across the bay to San Diego at either the Convention Center or Broadway Pier, and you can take your bicycle on board. Bicycle trails both on and off the streets can let you travel as far as your legs can carry you (Cabrillo Monument is a great ride, with fantastic views of the Pacific and Rosecrans National Cemetery). Uber, Lyft, and taxicabs are readily available. If you need a car, Hertz, Avis, and Enterprise rentals are available next door by the Hotel Del.

About Mary Lou Fredrickson

The owners are sisters, Nancy a retired public school administrator, and Mary Lou a retired public school counselor. Their parents purchased the condo in 1985 after having visited the area and fell in love with Coronado. Mary Lou and husband Karl vacation to the condo frequently. Nancy and her family live in the area and would be glad to help with any questions you might have with the area.

Why Mary Lou Fredrickson chose Coronado

My husband and I love staying here! Why? Because we start our day by drinking coffee, sitting on our balcony and watching the sunrise. Soon after, we walk to the beach and go for a long walk. We pick up sea shells and talk to other friendly beach walkers. Frequently we see dolphins feeding in the ocean. Being bird watchers, we enjoy watching pelicans, sand pipers, terns, sea gulls, and ospreys. It's also quite entertaining to watch the Navy Seals jogging on the beach and swimming laps in the ocean. After breakfast we decide if we want to go sailing, paddle boarding,or strolling in to Coronado to have lunch in one of the awesome restaurants. Shopping is always unique with many locally owned stores and trendy boutiques. In the afternoon, we could go for a bike ride or go to the pool to swim and relax. We attend live performances at the Lamb Theater. Sometimes we like to order pizza and stay in the condo to watch a movie on our "smart" TV. Because we stay here we are continually making improvements and additions to improve the condo.We enjoy all of this without having a car and enjoy using public transportation, bikes, and walking. We can rent a car if we choose. We hope to spend several months out here when we retire and would like to share our beautiful condo with you and hope that you would treat it as gently as we do. 

What makes this condo unique

Coronado Island has a unique history unlike any other location. It has preserved its small town, laid back atmosphere and reaps the benefits of a Mediterranean climate and a pristine beach. The “Crown City” has a charm and beauty that takes you back to a simpler time. There are many attractions to keep you on the island. However, if you want big town excitement and adventure, you can cross the beautiful Coronado Bay Bridge to San Diego.

Perfect location on Coronado

  • 4 of 5

A comfortable condo, outfitted with everything you need to have a home away from home in a world class beach setting! Wonderful view of the bay and morning sunrise from the wall of windows and easy access to beautiful Coronado beach from the back. Beach walks, sand dollar hunting & stunning sunsets were extra special parts of our stay. Building management and security are very conscientious about enforcing access and parking policies to insure a safe, secure property. Mary Lou & Nancy are friendly, responsive owners who were a pleasure to work with for our stay.

Excellent Coronado Shores Rental

  • 5 of 5

This condo was all we expected and more. It is a newly renovated, beautifully decorated, roomy, and clean place we called home for 2 months. The view of the bay is spectacular, full of abundant water, golfing and biking activity with a great peek at the ocean. The balcony is perfect for relaxing and cocktails. Loaded with great amenities and fully stocked, the condo met all our needs. The Coronado Shores is first class with pools, hot tubs, exercise facilities, community beach club, assigned underground parking, grills, door person, and 24-hour security. The owners were very responsive, helpful and terrific to deal with. We would recommend this condo----an excellent place to stay!
