What a wonderful experience! You can't find a better location or a cleaner place to stay. White carpet and walls and yet perfectly clean. I'm impressed! The view of the beach is very nice. There is access to both the beach and the "board walk" right next to the house. And even though restaurants and clubs are just a few minutes walk it was perfectly quiet. Try breakfast at Konos, near the pier, for an inexpensive treat. Having access to a garage was very nice, and anything you might want to see outside of this charming area is only 20 minutes drive in any direction (including conference facilities). Highlights include - Balboa Park (one free museum on Tuesdays), Torrey Pines State Preserve (park near the taco restaurant for free parking and lunch), Cabrillo National Monument (a must see at low tide/amazing views), Old Town for history & tourist shops, and Bandar in the gas light district for an amazing lunch (delicious Persian fare/huge helpings). It was also wonderful to have a clean, fully equipped kitchen (gas), access to a washer & dryer, a blue ray player (red box is nearby), and the grill we kept meaning to get to. Julie provides you with as much assistance or privacy as you need. When our fellow conference members groaned about their hotel rooms we gleefully returned to our place with a view.
