OCEAN SPLENDOR, OCEAN FRONT SAN DIEGO

San Diego Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

WOW! is the typical reaction to our views from the windows and balcony. Enjoy the sights, and sound of surf from every room of this 2 bedroom - 2 bath Ocean Front condo on the water. Experience the feeling of seeing the sun-set at the edge of the continent, over the Pacific Ocean. That's why guests leave San Diego feeling refreshed, relaxed, and sun-tanned.

Our Sunset Towers condo overlooks the great Pacific high atop Sunset Cliff in Ocean Beach. You're just steps from a favorite surfing and kayaking spots. We're located in a friendly residential community yet you're close enough to walk to the farmers market each Wednesday in Ocean Beach. Experience this Classic California beach town, complete with shops, and plenty of beach access.

Ocean Beach is the closest beach community to Downtown San Diego, it's also close to the San Diego Zoo, Sea World, and other famous attractions.

Our Welcome Pamphlet in our condo offers all sorts of tips and information about Southern California and beaches around San Diego. In addition to useful information about our building, and your stay. I think our guests have the best explanations. 'We woke up everyday to the sound of waves.' 'The whole Pacific is OURS.' 'The waves lulled us to sleep each night.' 'I hope I can buy a super sweet place like this someday.' and... 'We will be back.' Leave your cares behind, and join us at our condo on the ocean.

Ever since I was a kid I dreamed of a home on the water. Part of the reason is I was raised in the desert where it was hot, desolate, and land-locked. I walked into our condo and the view took my breath away. Now people from the desert, the city and the mountains come to live at the beach for a while. My wife and I decided to invest in this magic place. We love sharing that unique beach experience with dozens of guests from around the world.

Pete Fuentes purchased this condo in 2005

Few homes offer an 'experience' with-in a real estate deal. The vast Pacific Ocean is the reason I bought this home. It is located on the OCEAN! I'm glad to share that 'experience' with others.

I love watching seagulls and pelicans glide past the window as they move gracefully down the coast. The only appointments you'll make are for the Sunsets, or to catch the full moon over the water. The rest is pure bliss.

FANTASTIC ALL ROUND EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
This is my second stay here and hopefully it won be my last. I stayed for a week and several days I never left the apartment! Spectacular view, super clean, exceptionally well stocked with more than I needed in terms of "things". Pete is super accommodating. I hope to return again and again. I would not hesitate to recommend this place to anyone...you should all be so lucky to experience a stay here!

AN HONEST ASSESSMENT

  • 3 of 5
OK, the condo has great views and is centrally located. The owner, Pete, was very responsive to 2 issues we encountered upon arrival. First, the occupants in the apartment next to us were smoking on the balcony and it was causing that awful smoking smell. Pete was quick to speak to both the occupant and the owner of the unit and after 1 day it had stopped. Secondly, and more troubling was an issue with the electrical in the unit. Lights, TV, etc were continually flickering. To the point were I was ready to leave for safety reasons. I thought it was a building issue, however, Pete had his electrician come over and it was a faulty Breaker in the unit. The flickering stopped for the most part. Pete, even gave us a small gesture for our troubles.

The one item that really caused me to only give the unit a 3 star-rating was the lack of detail cleaning. The unit itself was clean at first blush. However, The bathroom ceiling vents, wall vents for heaters looked like they have not been cleaned in years. Simply, having them wiped would have gone a long way. I understand the sea air can make things somewhat moist etc. I get that, but this was just not clean. That was quite disappointing!

Also, small things, like the refrigerator's inside door was broken and held together with tape. I found this out the hard way when a bottle fell after we opened the door. The basement wash room! As I said to Pete, an electrical nightmare. Exposed wires held together with duct tape! Not very clean. I suggest you bring enough clothes to avoid this.

Overall, OK. But not up to the standards I had hoped for.

On the positive side, very nice view, with surfers, etc. Pretty quite building except for second bedroom which is located next to the outdoor hallway and can be noisy when trying to sleep.

AMAZING!!

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed in many beautiful places over the years from Jamaica, the Bahamas, and several places through out Mexico and we have never had a view like the one we had at Ocean Splendor Condo. We spent several hours a day just watching the surfers do their thing. The location was amazing! We were a short drive from many local attractions. Again, I cant get away from the view! BEAUTIFUL!! Going to sleep every night with the sounds of waves crashing was something I had never experienced. I cant wait to return, and we will return!!

NOTHING MORE RELAXING THAN OCEAN VIEWS

  • 5 of 5
We were in San Diego recently for a work conference and decided to stay here instead of a hotel - it was the BEST decision. The condo itself was very nice and the views were absolutely amazing.

Our favourite part - aside from sitting out on the balcony and enjoying oceanside meals - was the view of the ocean directly from the master bedroom. Each night we fell asleep to the sound of the ocean, and were greeted by it in the morning as well. It was extremely relaxing and exactly what we needed.

Pete was very courteous. Not only did Pete ensure the condo was ready for us upon arriving in San Diego, he greeted us as soon as we showed up. He was nice enough to tour us around and make sure we had everything we needed to enjoy our stay.

The condo itself is very clean. Pete has ensured that guests have everything they need to enjoy their stay - beach towels, chairs, bicycles, utensils... there's even an extensive collection of board games for rainy days. It's a two bedroom so it's spacious enough for a small family. We stayed with another couple for a few days and were quite comfortable. Each bedroom has it's own bathroom which is quite nice.

The condo is located on Sunset Cliffs, in the community of Ocean Beach. It is a 2 minute drive to the beach. You're also surrounded by local restaurants and shops. Unfortunately we didn't get a chance to visit any of the major attractions (i.e. Sea World, the Zoo, etc.), but it is only about 10 minutes from these places.

We did get to do a bit of sightseeing. We enjoyed lunch on the boardwalk of Pacific Beach (about 10 minutes from the condo). We also ventured into La Jolla and saw the seals at La Jolla Cove.

All in all, we very much enjoyed our stay and cannot wait for a chance to return. Highly recommended to anyone travelling in the San Diego area. Thanks Pete!

BEST VACATION STAY EVER!!!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Pete's Condo for our Spring Break this year. The condo looked amazing on the website, but once we saw the place in person it was even better than expected. The view is perfect. We planned on eating more meals out, but after eating on the deck the first night, we decided to order in or pick up food most night so we could leisurely eat dinner on the deck watching the sunset.

The location is perfect. It is 10 minutes from Sea World, 15 minutes from SD Zoo/Balboa Park/La Jolla/Downtown-Gas Lamp Quarter, and 20 minutes from Coronado Beach.

Finally, Pete is awesome. He helped us take our bags to the room, answered a bunch of questions about SD, and even served us tea during the condo orientation. He also had a great book prepared, which listed a lot of information including where to visit, eat, and shop for just about anything.

We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay for our trip. The cost was great too. I would have been willing to spend much more after seeing the place. We plan to stay here on future trips to SD.

Respectfully,
David and Britni Leitman
