Great Loma Point Rental
Submitted: August 3, 2010
Stayed: July 2010
We always take a summer vacation to beat the heat in Phoenix AZ late July early August. We have stayed from Laguna down the coast to San Diego and choose homes that have updated kitchen baths and other creature comforts that we have at our home.
You might say that we are disciminating in our choices and when visiting other cities prefer the likes of the Mandarin Hotel in San Francisco and the Four Season (formerly Beverly Wilshire) in LA, where service and beauty is expected.
With that background, I must say that the pictures at the website do not do the house justice and they are very nice. What they do not capture is the flow of the house. It is modern, contemporay and totally put together. It has clean modern lines and is put together by someone who has extremely good taste and a great sense of fung shei.
A major irritant of mine is always having to pack spices and the like as I like to cook on vacation, where there is no deadline looming to distract my energies. The kitchen came fully stock with spices and nice cutlery and pots and pans, plates glasses and the like. While the rest of my family are less than concrened about this, it was a definte plus for me. The kitchen is extremely well organized and finding things is very intuitive.
The bedrooms are nice and generous, with lots of closet space in the 2 upstairs bedrooms with lots of flat screens, good choice of cable stations and honor system for movies On Demand. The master bath was wonderful, beautiful fixtures, a nice flat screen to catch up on the morning news if you chose, a wonderful shower with vertical spa to wrap your body in soothing water with very good pressure. My wife likes to camp out in nice bathrooms and spent plenty of time there.
Another nice amenity is a working office, where I can get off my blackberry and actually go on a full sized computer with guest privileges and see things as I would in my office, with printinting capabilities if I needed it. My son used the wifi to do whatever tweens do all day when they are glued to them and said there was generally good reception.
Last but not least was the view of the Shelter Island and the wonderful view of downtown San Diego. They had two viewing points, upstairs, on the patios outside the 2 bedrooms, and on the first floor deck, with a great pair of Canon IS binoculars to zoom in on the yachts and Navy ships.
I would recommend this home to anyone who is discriminating in their vacation rentals.
