We are a fun-loving couple who have been together for 12 years, and in that time have shared our passion for travel. We've been shaped greatly by the experiences we've had around the world, and it has provided us an appreciation for the wealth of cultures, personalities, and perspectives shared on this small planet of ours.

Michelle purchased this house in 2009

Having been to 6 of the 7 continents and stayed in every kind of accommodation imaginable, we wanted to create a special place where guests would find comfort, convenience, and sheer beauty during their stay in what is undoubtedly one of the world's most beautiful cities. San Diego is the only place in the west coast that combines nearly perfect weather year round, amazing natural beauty from ocean to mountains, a bustling downtown metropolis full of diversity and energy, and unique cultural and historic communities sprinkled throughout the entire county. You can literally do something different every day here for a month and never be bored. Its an amazing place.

We wanted to buy a vacation home that embodied a number of unique combinations: modern, high end finishes combined with comfortable and 'livable' furnishing; a quaint neighborhood that was just minutes to the heart of downtown and all major attractions; and finally a place that offered the breathtaking views of a high-rise luxury condo, yet maintained the privacy of a single family home. The place we've spent the last 3 years building has ALL of this and more! We hope to get the chance to share this magical with you.

GREAT LOCATION, VERY COMFORTABLE

  • 5 of 5
We were extremely pleased with our weeklong stay. The location is great. We are runners so were able to enjoy beautiful runs to either Balboa Park or to the waterfront area, both a short distance away. The neighbourhood is quiet and safe. We planned to rent a car only if needed and found that we were easily able to take public transit to all the major San Diego sites from the apartment (Zoo, Seaworld, Ocean Beach, Coronado, USS Midway, etc). Little Italy was a short walk away with a good selection of restaurants. We ate there three out of the seven nights. The view of the Bay is spectacular from the apartment.

The apartment was also very comfortable, spacious and homey. The beds were comfortable and with one and a half bathrooms and two bedrooms, there was more than ample space for us (2 parents travelling with an adult child). There were all the needed appliances: microwave, dishwasher, blender, coffee maker, hair dryer, washer, dryer. There were plenty of towels as well as extra blankets, pillows, and towels and chairs for the beach. It was extremely clean. We felt at home immediately.

The only negative not mentioned in any of the reviews is the pedestrian bridge to public transit (the Green Line Trolley). There were always a few homeless on this bridge as well as refuse left behind. They were completely harmless. At no time did we feel unsafe (even at night), only a bit sad.

Overall, I would highly recommend this apartment. We loved our stay and would happily return!

Owner's Response: This 5 star review came from a nice family from Canada. As they mentioned, the location is great for runners. There are plenty of hills, trails and flat ground all within short distance to the home to suit all runners tastes. And it sure is nice to have many fabulous options to stop for a bit to eat after that long run or stroll.

The home is only a 5 minute walk to the trolley stop, which makes it ideal for both business and leisure travelers. It's 5 minutes to downtown, Convention Center, Old town, etc. San Diego is an urban city with all the major transportation hubs (boat, train, and plane) located in the heart of the city. As with any major city, that comes with homeless people who congregate on or near the bridges throughout the city. They are very harmless and never disturb or bother anyone.

We live in the same neighborhood with two small children and take the trolley weekly. There is an alternate route to the trolley stop we can direct people if you would like to avoid the bridge. Although, I would still recommend the bridge because it is a safe, quick and direct path to the trolley stop.

LUXURY AND LOCATION FANTASTIC PROPERTY

  • 5 of 5
We were so pleased with our stay in Bay View 1 this October. We felt like it was our home, coffee in the morning on the spacious patio, touring during the day and enjoying a glass of wine in the evening watching the sunset. The pictures are accurate and the reservation/checkout process was easy. Not only is the home spacious and super clean, but the manual that they have created answers any questions that a visitor might have i.e. grocery stores, transportation, sights to see, how to work the systems in the home and how to check out. We enjoyed the high end features all around the house, from the entertainment system to the fully equipped kitchen, and especially the luxury bathrooms! The location was perfect for us, and there is a parking spot next to the property. We couldn't have asked for more. This place would be a great choice for anyone who wants a good location, convenient to Trolley System, high end amenities, and privacy. Thank you for the wonderful beginning to our retirement year. We highly recommend this as your San Diego destination.

ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT

  • 5 of 5
Stayed here for a week in August with our 4 year old and absolutely loved it. Felt at home straight away. All of the furnishings are remarkably comfortable, and the view from the balcony is amazing. Everything was very clean. We loved watching the planes take off, and had barbecues outside most nights. Location was excellent for quick access to all of San Diego's attractions. The area is very residential though, so had to drive to shops / restaurants. Only thing we missed was a kettle - we are English and like our tea! Would not hesitate to recommend, and would love to stay here again in the future.

Owner's Response: Lucy, thank you so much for the kind words and excellent review!! We are so happy you enjoyed your stay and San Diego. We are a short walk to Little Italy which has many amazing restaurants and lounge/pubs, hopefully you found them. I also enjoy a hot cup of tea everyday, so we do provide an electric water kettle (perhaps it was hidden in one of the cupboards :-) We look forward to hosting you again in the future!

WONDERFUL RENTAL IN SAN DIEGO!

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this cozy and inviting rental and it was a perfect location from which to explore San Diego. We were literally minutes away from all of the places we wanted to visit (the Zoo, Sea World, Coronado, downtown). After having spent the previous week in a hotel room in Anaheim, it was so nice for our family of 5 to spread out and have more space. We appreciated having the well appointed kitchen to prepare meals in and also made use of the gas grill and outdoor dining area. The 2 bedrooms had very comfy beds with great linens. The unit was very clean upon check in and is nicely decorated. We loved having the excellent handbook provided by the owners. We had so much fun checking out the suggested restaurants and finding hidden gems that we wouldn't have known about otherwise.

The owner, Michelle, was fantastic to work with right from our initial contact with her. The whole rental process was easy and hassle-free: it was simple to book and pay for the rental online; checking in was a breeze with the excellent instructions we were given; and any questions we had were answered promptly.

We would highly recommend this rental and we will definitely contact the owners next time we return to San Diego!
