After vacationing in the San Diego area each of the past 20 years, my sister and I feel our time at the fourth floor condo at Windansea surpassed all others. It perfectly matched our interests – near the beach but quiet, convenient, spacious and picturesque. And the marvelous owner, her friends and neighbors greatly magnified our enjoyment during the six weeks we were there last summer.
San Diego offers an incredible range of arts, entertainment, recreation and tourist attractions; little wonder it is called “America's Finest City”. To many, La Jolla is “San Diego's Jewel By the Sea”; surely then, Windansea Community is its “Hidden Treasure”. How peaceful it was, at least at times, to be apart from the throngs of tourists and sunbathers found elsewhere. Yet there is never a dull moment at Windansea because the unique shore break provides challenges to surfers. This draws experienced surfers who perform world-class feats. Topping it off, the surf crashing onto rock formations is a sight to behold.
The Village and the beaches at La Jolla Cove and La Jolla Shores are charming as well and a nice change of pace. Also just a few minutes drive away at Mt. Soledad is a gorgeous panorama of the Pacific and its coastline.
The condo kitchen is nicely-equipped for home-cooked meals. But La Jolla and all of the San Diego area satisfy every taste in restaurants, including three within a block of the condo. Fresh seafood in La Jolla is abundant but so is everything else!
So each aspect of this "home away from home" earns the maximum – five stars! And two thumbs up!
