If you are planning a vacation to San Diego and need a place to stay, I highly recommend this condo. We (family of five) stayed for a week in July and had a blast being able to walk out the front doors of the building, down some stairs, and right onto the beautiful beach. Afterwards we came back and enjoyed a dip in the hot tub and pool. We couldn't have asked for a better location. Stores and restaurants were within a short walking distance. As for the condo itself, first of all, it was very easy to reserve and the people at Pacific Sands were very kind and professional. Secondly, I was very impressed with how clean and well kept it was. Everything was in good working condition. It was nicely decorated and had everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable. The reason for the 4 stars instead of 5 is because I would have loved it if there was a window air conditioning unit in one or two of the rooms, but there were ceiling fans in every room so we just opened up the windows and turned on the fans and it was ok. If and when we are able to get back to San Diego, this will be the first place I will check for availability.
