Mick and I moved to San Diego from South Africa about 22 years ago. That was the BEST move we ever made! We were fortunate to come to San Diego and find Ocean Beach which has so much character. This house was our primary residence but is now too big for the 2 of us.
The light and feel of the home is up-lifting, I always feel so good when I'm there.
When we first owned the property it was a very rough little 2 BR but Mick is a contractor and was able to turn the ugly duckling to a swan! You'll love it.
We love the space and light and always feel as though we are on vacation when we are there.
What a great home for larger families! Everything was just as it was presented and everyone was great on answering any questions we had. Had a marvelous time and look forward to experiencing this property again. The owners are delightful!
This was my first trip to San Diego but certainly not my last. We arrived with several couples and had plenty of room for everyone. Easy location to find and centrally located. Great people to work with. My mother-in-law loved the parrots talking in the morning.
My family found the home just perfect! Very spacious home for a big family. We could not have been more happy with our choice.
My family from both the East and West coast gathered here for a week vacation. We had seven adults (one mobility-limited) and two kids (1 and 3). Mick and Sue's house worked perfectly for us. We were pleasantly surprised at how close it was to the airport and downtown San Diego, but it is in a lovely neighborhood. The house itself is spacious and well-maintained. The kitchen is large and well-stocked, and the breakfast bar and open floor plan into the small family room is great. Large sliding glass doors open onto a covered deck with a seats-6 outdoor table, so you get a huge space for everyone to gather at once. And when you want quiet time, just walk to the adjacent living room, or upstairs to the furnished covered upper deck -- where you can see the Sea World fireworks each night! The number of bedrooms and bathrooms worked perfectly and nobody felt cramped or was waiting in line for a bathroom! You will notice noise from the airplanes, but you are not in their flight path. Even the baby was used to them by the end of day two!
Thinking after vacation, I think the best thing about the house is its location. Close to the airport, yes (super convenient when you leave), but so close to everything: downtown, Sea World, USS Midway, Coronado Island, Torrey Pines, even La Jolla! Most trips only took us 10 or 15 minutes; I think La Jolla was our max at about 30 minutes. That's shorter than my work commute. Our sightseeing trips were so pleasant because of the short distance to and from "home." For those who like to walk, you can walk a few blocks downhill (back up is a bit steep) to Ocean Beach, restaurants, a grocery store, Rite Aid, etc. This was very convenient and fun, and Raglan, a brew pub at the end of the street has great food and beer! I would sincerely recommend this house to a family looking for a large, convenient home base.
We are just back from a week in this terrific home. From booking until leaving, the experience was very positive. Mick and Sue were wonderful to work with, the house was just as seen in pictures and described with words, and the location was really convenient and ideal! We were there with children and grandchildren and then joined for some family times by my husband’s sister , her children and grandchildren. We often ate meals together and played games here. The little kids really enjoyed the playhouse and backyard! The home’s size was super for us. Each evening ended with the magical fireworks display at Sea World watched from the second floor balcony. Thanks, Sue and Mick, for a fantastic Fourth of July week!
Our party of 9 (6 adults and 3 children) arrived last week and today our memories are fabulous! What a a great house! Quiet, separate, enclosed sleeping arangements for 3 families (or more) provided privacy and ease of putting children down for naps and at night. Lots of ammenities that families would like: pots, pans, cookie sheet, toaster, coffee maker, you-name-it, it was there, along with kitchen utensils, plus a fridge-freezer with ice maker, provisions for keeping it all clean: surface wipes and paper towels. Bathrooms with plenty of shampoo and soap and towels galore, and lots of toilet paper. With kids we used the washer dryer frequently, and the dishwasher as well. Patio furniture, and grill next to the large spacious family room, AND a dining room for our 50th anniversary dinner... Teddy bears for the kids, this house had everything, including a play house in the back...Our four-year-old announced upon arrival "I live HERE!" What a wonderful experience for us first-time vacation house renters! This is not the "norm", it's the ideal! Thank you for the perfect place and the memories!
Walk to Ocean Beach, a delightful beach town. An adorable Main Street aligned with antique stores, restaurants, watering holes, hamburger joints, curio shops and an array of bustling 'beach style' activities.
