|Minimum Stay||2 nights|
Relax on your private deck with beautiful views of San Diego Bay, the downtown skyline, Coronado Island, and the nearby mountains. Watch the fighter jets take off from North Island and frequent sail boat races. Where else can you have lovely sunrises and watch the sunset reflected off the skyline from the same deck chair? And YES, all the view photos shown in our listing are taken from our (your) patio deck!
Our home is located less than 10 minutes from the airport, Shelter Island, Harbor Island, downtown, and walking distance to restaurants, shops, yoga, a bakery, farmer's market (Sundays) and the bay. You can see the hills of Balboa Park where the San Diego Zoo is located. Sea World is 15 minutes around the corner. The border is 25 minutes to the south. The lights in Mexico are visible at night from your deck! Walk over to buy fresh fish from Point Loma Seafood, pick up a bottle of wine from The Grape Connections on your way by and stop at the bakery for some dessert or fresh bread for the morning. Or skip all that and enjoy one of HarborTown's 17 beers on tap.
Newly added to this listing are a number of local attractions that we think you will like, along with our reviews. Look right under 'Location' to learn more and click on 'View Guide powered by gogobot' right above Owner Info.
Your cozy apartment with private entrance and private deck includes everything you'll need for making your San Diego vacation a most memorable experience. The kitchenette is newly remodeled and the queen bed is very comfortable. We think you will be most comfortable with two people but please inquire if you have need for a 3rd guest. Parking is excellent.
Your hosts, Toni and Dave, live just above and will be on hand, when needed, to answer any questions and provide recommendations for the many activities and sights San Diego has to offer. When we are home we're pretty quiet so you will hardly know we're here. You're likely to see more of our cat than us! If you want to take it easy and save money, don't rent a car and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. There is a path along the water that is very nice at night. We often walk down there. Overall, we think we have the best value in all of Pt Loma. Please read through our reviews to see what those who visit with us are saying.
*** RECENT UPDATE. As we travel more, we are also open to renting the main part of our home, 2 bedrooms, located above the apartment with the same, great views, plus a private deck and garden area in the back, and more. Please let us know if you are interested, especially if the time you wish to visit shows unavailable. ***

We met on Dave's birthday (which is New Year's Eve) in 2007 and found we both enjoyed traveling, working in our garden, having friends over to our home, and especially being together. In 2010 we became engaged and in 2011 we bought our home in Point Loma. We were happily married in August 2014.
When we first stood on the deck and looked out at the same view you will have, we knew this was the home we wanted. We've spent the first year remodeling and making both our living area and the apartment into a warm, inviting, comfortable place to live and share with the many new VRBO friends who will be coming to vacation with us.
We've traveled to a number of wonderful destinations and we often use VRBO to find a place to stay rather than the sterile confines of a hotel. Everyone we've met has been very gracious and friendly, and that is what you can expect from us.
Toni has retired and is usually available for questions. When we are home we're pretty quiet so you will hardly know we're here. You're likely to see more of our two cats than us!
Dave and Toni purchased this apartment in 2011
...so we did, six months later, and it was every bit as perfect as the first time, more laid back, we had already done the city sites so this time we stayed "home". We had the massage therapist come back, twice. In the mornings and evenings we enjoyed the deck and the the chiminea fire. We love the Point Loma area, for the sunrise views and the walking, and amazing coffee at Peets. Ocean Beach Wednesday market included some great food and a sunset. We highly recommend Dave and Toni's place as a base for both exploration and relaxation.
Hospitable owners who make you feel at home. A view that is memorable, and you will want to spend most of your time in the lovely patio. Point Loma is a wonderful place to stay to enjoy San Diego as a local. Looking forward to returning soon!
We loved this place, from our very personable hosts, to the quaint little apartment, to the spectacular views from the patio. Dave and Toni couldn't have been more accommodating, and everything we wanted to do was just a short easy distance away.
My husband and I were lucky enough to get a last minute booking to stay at Dave and Toni's place for 3 nights. It must have been fate! We enjoyed everything about our stay! We loved being such a short distance to everywhere: La Jolla (a must visit!), Cabrillo Monument (highly recommend), Old Town, Coronado, etc. Ocean Beach was just a few minutes' drive away, and I think our favourite evening was spent sitting on the rocks at Dog Beach watching the sunset while local surfers caught the last waves of the day. So beautiful.
Inside the apartment, we had everything we could possible need, and I know if there was something we couldn't find, Dave was just an email/phone call away! We will definitely plan to stay here again the next time we visit San Diego (which is hopefully sooner than later!).
We have stayed in VRBO's from Hilton Head to San Francisco, including another property in San Diego, and this apartment is the finest we have stayed in! Dave and Toni are the consummate hosts and have provided an exceptional "home away from home".
I agree with all of the specifics in the previous glowing reviews! We used to live in San Diego, so we knew we wanted to stay in Point Loma, away from the busyness of downtown or Mission Valley, for our "homecoming vacation". The views from the private patio overlooking downtown, the harbor and Coronado Island are spectacular (both day and night) and so relaxing. All of the eateries just down the hill are great; Sweetaly Bakery is great for a morning coffee and great selection of pastries.
We spent our days at Ocean Beach, the small private beach at the base of Lawrence St. and at Mission Bay (Ventura Cove Park). Thanks Dave and Toni for the nice beach chairs and beach towels. Watching sunsets just over the hill at Sunset Cliffs and a fire in the chiminea were a perfect ending to the day.
We highly recommend this apartment; you will love it!!
Dave and Toni are great hosts, very welcoming. Their apartment was cozy, very comfortable and had every amenity we needed - very well thought out. On top of that, we were welcomed with a great bottle of wine, pantry items, and other kitchen staples, which made cooking super easy. Great barbecue as well.
The view from the apartment and deck is amazing! It's what initially attracted us to this accomodation, and we weren't disappointed.
We were not familiar with San Diego, but couldn't have picked a better location than Pt. Loma. A lovely area for walking, biking, especially if you like being close to the water, and it's also very accessible to all of the lovely sites and activities in San Diego. It has many restaurants within walking distance.
We have to mention the friendly, helpful attitude of everyone we encountered in San Diego.
Thank you again, Dave and Toni, for helping us out on our arrival.
We definitely would recommend this apartment.
