San Diego Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

If you want to enjoy the ocean and the amenities of San Diego, there’s no better place than on top of Sunset Cliffs. Sitting right on top of the beginning of the cliffs, this 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom condo provides views and sounds of the waves from every room. If you get tired of being amazed by the pelicans flying by at eye level, counting the surfers riding the waves, or watching the superlative sunsets from your bedroom, balcony, or living room, there's always the oversized jetted tub to relieve your stress or watch one of the two HD televisions.

The stainless steel kitchen and open floor plan provides a wonderful ambiance for entertaining or simply for enjoying your time at home. All furnishings were purchased new in 2011.

It's close to all the attractions: Less than 3 miles to Sea World, 4 miles to the Trolly, 5 miles to Belmont Park, 8 miles to the San Diego Padre's ballpark and downtown San Diego, 9 miles to the San Diego Zoo and museums of Balboa Park, or 10 miles to the San Diego Charger's stadium.

It's all here.

Our 34 unsolicited reviews now have an average of 4.94 (32 reviews rated 5 stars; 2 reviews rated 4 stars).

About The Owner

We are both educators. We started our careers in Ohio, spent 10 years in Wyoming, and eventually moved to San Diego in 1990. Although we love to travel, once you visit here you'll see why we now live in San Diego. Our home is 1 mile from this vacation rental, and we plan to sell our house and move into the condo part time when we retire.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2011

Why The Owner chose San Diego

Being teachers for over 30 years, we know how important it is to get away from 'normal life' and forget about work while relaxing in a new environment. We looked for a condo in San Diego for over 2 years before finding this gem. Ocean breezes, the sound of the waves, pelicans being so close that you can almost touch them, and the closeness to so many attractions make this a great place to live.

What makes this condo unique

It takes about 1 minute to walk to the closest beach (just the time to walk down the stairs). A five minute walk south takes you to the Sunset Cliffs Natural Park, and a five minute walk north takes you to downtown Ocean Beach, one of the most famous and unique communities in San Diego. With its farmer's market / street fair every Wednesday, it's a great place to pick up flowers, locally grown food, snacks, and see live entertainment.

A perfect 10

  • 5 of 5
My 3 cousins and I were lucky enough to stay at this condo in May of this year. They flew over from London and I from Canada. I was a little nervous because I made all the reservations and felt that if it turned out to be other than how it was listed, it would be on my shoulders. No worries! It exceeded our expectations in every way. The owners, Donn and Barbara, met us on arrival and gave us loads of information about the condo, surrounding area, and local attractions and amenities. The place was beautifully furnished and spotless - just as the photos depicted. We all agreed that we felt like guests at the home of a good friend. One thing we really appreciated was the fact that we could get in touch with Donn or Barbara any time and for any reason. We had secure underground parking which was also a bonus as we had loads of shopping to unload most days. We had a rental car and we were only a short drive from all of the major San Diego attractions and shopping. I would say that having a car is the way to go, but if you are only into surfing and the the beach, then you could easily walk or bike to Ocean Beach. There are loads and loads of dining options in the San Diego/Point Loma area- you are spoiled for choice really - it depends what you want. This review is meant to be about our accommodation so I've saved the best for last. The view from our condo was amazing! Open the doors to the balcony and the ocean was literally below us - we sometimes found it hard to tear ourselves away from watching the surfers, and the intoxicating pull of the sea, and get back to the serious business of being tourists. The only complaint I have is that as dedicated as we were to watching for the "green flash" at sunset - we never did see it! Guess we will just have to return. Highly recommend this vacation rental.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the wonderful review. We appreciate your touching on so many of the fine points that our condo and the surrounding area have to offer.

As for the Green Flash, we probably see it 15 times a year. Many people look for a “flash” in the sky, thinking that the rays from the sun shoot a green light skyward as it sets. It’s not quite that dramatic. The best way to think about it is in computer jargon; on clear days when the humidity is low, watch for the very last pixel of the sun as it sets. The green flash is emerald color, and is only visible for a brief moment. It’s difficult to see the first time as the conditions need to be just right, but once you see it, it’s more easily recognizable the next time and you’ll enjoy telling your friends of the unique, natural event from your seaside vacation.

Best stay in San Diego

  • 5 of 5
Donn and Barbara did us a big favor to allow our family of 3 adults plus 2 little ones to use their condo for our spring break. They also took multiple extra steps to accommodate our special needs for our kids. The location is the most convenient one we can think of, for either sightseeing, or theme park, or trails, etc. We enjoyed the extremely peaceful blue ocean on one morning, and also the pretty calming rosy sunset on one afternoon. Our family has visited San Diego 4 times in the past years, but we consider the last trip as the best, for sure. Thanks again, Donn and Barbara.

Owner's Response: Although we place a limit of four people who can stay at our place, we can accommodate a fifth if he or she is an infant who can sleep in our pack-n-play.

And as for our place being convenient to all San Diego has to offer, that's one of the reasons we purchased the place--that and the peaceful sounds of the waves and the great views from our unit.

Excellent condo by the ocean

  • 5 of 5
This location and condo worked out to be a great home base to explore Ocean Beach and San Diego. Everything in the condo was as described. The ocean was amazing. Enjoyed watching the waves and surfers "catching a wave".

Owner's Response: There is a great surf break just off shore. On most days you’ll see surfers and paddle boarders playing in the surf--and on special days you’ll see dolphins joining them to ride the waves.

Spectacular Sunset Cliffs

  • 5 of 5
From the moment we entered the door of the condo, we knew that our "too good to be true" concerns (based just on the photo) were for naught. Too Good. View, sun, surf, dolphins, surfers, hip beachside community, wonderfully friendly and helpful owner. The Best!

Owner's Response: As this review mentions, the community of Ocean Beach is a “hip, beachside community”. There are very few chain businesses—a Starbucks, Subway, and Rite Aid drug store are the only ones. The other 200+ businesses are all unique to our community. From high-end jewelry, award-winning restaurants, and quality antique centers to surf shops, new-age businesses, and thrift stores. And don’t forget Hodad’s, with burgers that have been featured on CNN, the Travel Channel, the Food Network, and Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives.

Spectacular Views, Clean and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5
There is nothing quite like waking up and seeing the surf of the Pacific from your pillow!
Our family of four (parents and two "tween" boys) have avoided "resort" vacations, instead renting cottages, camping and sight-seeing at home in Canada. This fit our vacation lifestyle perfectly, with an updated, clean, spacious and well-equipped "home-base". Each day was started with coffee on the balcony, and ended with a nice glass wine the same way, just listening to the waves.
This Ocean Beach area has a great beach, quaint shops, and feels more "small town" relaxed than the more commericial areas to the north of it. Everything we needed, like groceries, was only a few minutes away.
We were able to reach major attractions like the Zoo, Balboa Park, Old Town, Mission Trails Park with a short drive downtown, and LEGOland was about 45 minutes north.
Donn and Barb were excellent hosts, with a meeting on arrival to do a tour and explain the ammenities. They even provided a binder of information about things to do and see, where to shop, etc., and were easy to contact with any questions. Everything was exactly as described in their ad.
This would definitely be our preferred place to stay when in San Diego again.

Owner's Response: On evenings when our place isn’t rented, we often go over to enjoy sipping some wine and listening to the sound of the waves--just like our clients mentioned. It really is a relaxing feeling. But rather than focusing on that feature, let me elaborate on the comment about the “binder of information.” To help orient our guests to San Diego, Ocean Beach, and our place, we send them an electronic file about a month before their arrival, and have it printed out for them at our place. Within the document we describe all the activities we think people might be coming to Southern California to enjoy. Not only the big attractions like the San Diego Zoo, Lego Land, Sea World, and our football and baseball teams, but also many of the hikes in our natural areas, museums, and the unique shopping areas. We also provide maps to grocery stores, descriptions and menus from some of the many local restaurants, tide tables, and information on local Street Fairs and Farmer Markets. Our goal is to help insure everyone runs out of time before they run out of activities to enjoy in our wonderful city and area.
