About Tracy Ruane, mgr.

I am a San Diego guy at heart. As a real estate developer I could have my pick of properties and I have lived in many parts of the U.S. Though I no longer call San Diego my permanent home I wanted a place to come to that embodied all San Diego had to offer. I found that when I bought the Penthouse Suite on Bayside Walk. My family and I love to spend time here. My kids enjoy Belmont Park and riding their bikes around the boardwalks. I enjoy hanging out on the balcony, even when work calls and I have to bring my there any better place to work that has this view? NO WAY! I know the enjoyment we have experienced here and I hope your family will have the same wonderful experience which creates memories we cherish forever.

Tracy Ruane, mgr. purchased this condo in 2011

Why Tracy Ruane, mgr. chose South Mission Beach

I went to college at the University of San Diego. I knew from the time I first landed in San Diego I would spend a lot of time here.

What makes this condo unique

I love the early mornings at the bay. It's quiet and peaceful. I enjoy my coffee on the balcony and then head out on the bike to ride along the boardwalk. One of the best features is entertaining here. Having your friends and family with you is what life is all about, BBQ and watching the summer fireworks show always puts everyone in a relaxing mood!

Gorgeous View, Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a wonderful week in San Diego. We arrived at the condo very late (past midnight) and if I had to rate it then, I'd probably have given it a 4 star rating. But when I saw the view in the morning, I decided 5 stars was more appropriate! It's stunning. The condo is older and is showing a bit of wear, but it's clean and well-stocked. My kids loved the spiral staircase going up to the condo. I also appreciated the key-less entry--very convenient for our large family.

We loved the bike rides every night--me, my husband and our 12 and 17 year-old daughters used the bikes available with the condo. We needed little bikes for our 8 and 6 year-olds and were able to rent those just down the street. The bike paths were wonderful and it was so nice to not have to worry about cars. With all of the things to do in San Diego, our kids probably loved those bike rides the most.

The location was perfect. We were close to everything. I think the only long-ish drive we had was to Lego Land and even that was only about 30 minutes away. We walked to the beach, which was very close, but I'm glad we were staying on the bay side. It seemed a better fit for families and was very quiet. Even during spring break, we often had the bay to ourselves--just us with our little kids searching for sand dollars.

The close proximity to Belmont Park was fun as well. If someone has the Go Pass, I'd recommend getting the wrist band from Belmont in the morning and then after you get back in the evening, you can walk down to Belmont for a few rides before bed (you have to arrive at the events on the Go Pass before 5:30, but if you've already gotten your wrist band, you're good until they close at 11 PM, and don't have to feel rushed getting back).

The only thing I would recommend that the owners do soon is to replace the mattress topper in the master bedroom. It sags so much on either side that there's a veritable mountain in the middle. My husband said on our first night, "I feel like something's come between us." He recommended that I only give 4 stars because of the bed, but I feel like the other great things about the condo made up for it. Also, the knob for the right front burner on the stove doesn't work and the bathroom door in the kid's bathroom doesn't lock (something that our teenager let us know several times as her younger siblings walked in on her). Other than that, it was perfect for our family and we highly recommend it.

My mother and I spent a week in this lovely condo and really enjoyed ourselves. It was clean and well stocked with everything we needed. The view of the bay was awesome and we enjoyed the fireworks at night from across the bay. It was a short walk to the beach where we walked and enjoyed the incredible sunsets.

It has been 2 weeks since we got back from staying at this condo. We've had tons of people ask us about our stay and what we did etc etc. I can go on and on about how wonderful the condo is and the location and the views but in all honesty...My wife and I and our 2 1/2 year old had an awesome time. We miss San Diego, we miss looking out over the deck and seeing the beautiful bay lined with sail boats, the sunrise, walking down the street to the market or going to Sara's Mexican food (we ate there every day!) we just miss every thing about this place. Tracy was amazing to deal with, we had absolutely no issues at all and are all ready planning our next years trip to the exact same condo. It was truly perfect!

My family stayed here over the Thanksgiving Holiday week. There was an exquisite view from the living area and we sat on the balcony any chance we could get. The amenities are more than as described. I have used VRBO for four years now in the Mission Bay area during this same break time and by far this is the most comfortable, clean, and the best location you could ask for. I didn't want to leave. I will be back

Spring Break Stay

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful place! New windows and doors made it very quite for the toddler we brought with us. Furnishings are all upscale and very comfortable. The beds were wonderful and not on the cheap end. We made waffles, had steaks on the grill, and did lots of people watching from the balcony that was toddler-proof. We bought and left behind for the next guests to enjoy: cribbage and dominoes. Only issue we had was the WiFi code in the email was not correct but it is listed in the pocket of the "book" in the unit. Neighbors are all friendly and it awesome. We bought the 7-day passes to SD Zoo, Safari Park, and Sea World before we left home and it made it a bargain.

My husband, 18 month old son and I had a wonderful stay at this beautiful condo! The view was amazing, and accessing the beach could not have been easier. The condo is located on the quiet bay side which was perfect for our little guy! Tracy, the property manager, was very helpful and did her utmost to make our stay go as smoothly as possible. We would love to return!
