The description of this place and the reviews are all too good to be true, but this condo justifies everything said about it. With the west side full of windows, the breaking waves of the ocean were always within view. There's nothing like waking up in the morning, turning your head to see the waves rolling up on the beach. The only thing that comes between you and ocean is the great 57" HDTV (complete with cable and movie channels, and bluray, dvd and vhs players). The kitchen was well-stocked with the essentials, all appliances in good working order. The beds and linens were very, very comfortable, and having two bedrooms each with their own baths made the stay comfortable for my wife and I and our adult daughter.
Having a designated parking space in the secured garage was convenient (if not an absolute necessity in this part of Pacific Beach), but we only left the area once during our stay -- everything else we wanted to do was within walking distance (man, it's really tough when you have to walk 20 yards to go lounge on the beach). The garage includes grocery carts to make bringing luggage, etc. up to the room a snap.
The boardwalk provided endless people-watching entertainment, it's great to watch the area come to life from early morning, through the peak periods in the afternoon, and into the evenings. Late at night, the boardwalk did attract partygoers from the local bars, but since the unit is 4 floors up, the noise they made barely came through over the sound of the waves.
The condo's location between Garnett and Grand, made getting in/out of PB very easy. It is also a nice place to launch bike rides around Mission Bay or up over Mt. Soledad to La Jolla, Torrey Pines and beyond.
Would we stay here again? Absolutely! With a friendly, gracious and conscientious owner like Ron, a good time is virtually guaranteed.
