Beach Condo Review - SD Bay
We have mixed emotions about this property. The good: The view is outstanding, great walking trails, décor is lovely and updated as shown in photo and space is great for a small family. The bad: Pacific Beach is a party area and the noise on adjacent balconies, beach and trails at night was constant. Due to no A/C the windows had to be left open so it was impossible to rest with the noise (finally subsided around 2AM each night and appeared to be different kids each time). A small A/C window unit would go a long way in making this more comfortable (stand up units provided blew out fuse). Internet speed is not adequate for work or playing on net (could not research travel options etc). Light switches and lack of light in bathroom was frustrating (had to apply makeup in bedroom). Ease of entering/exiting garage was frustrating. Could be a 4 star rental with some minor tweaks.
We have 43 reviews for this condo and all of them are 5 star except for 3 with 4 stars. This is one of our most popular rentals out of the 82 that we manage and it's considered a very quiet location on lovely and quiet Sail Bay, away from the zoo that the beachfront can be in the summer. I have reached out to this guest to see exactly where the noise was coming from. Perhaps the building next door which is a 4 bedroom house, but noise is noise no matter where it's coming from. I only wish she would have contacted us with where it was coming from so we could have done something about it.
As is the case with 95% of the rentals in the beach area, this condo does not have central AC but we do provide a portable AC unit which she said "blew a fuse." There are no fuses, it tripped a circuit breaker and I told her how to reset it.) All the circuit breakers in this building have been replaced with new ones within the last 2 years and we have not experienced that in this unit or any of the other units we manage in this building unless perhaps there is a hair dryer or electric BBQ being used at the same time.
The bathroom light is tricky but we explain it in our orientation guide. There is a dimmer switch by one of the two doors into the bathroom and if the dimmer switch is turned off or down all the way, then if you enter from the other door and try to turn on the light, it will seem like it is not working but all you have to do is turn on or up the dimmer at the other bathroom entrance a few feet away. This frustration could have been avoided by reading the orientation guide or by calling us. Also, I have reached out to her to find out what was her frustration with entering and exiting the garage because we give you a code to enter the first time and after you get up to the condo, you have a garage remote to use for the rest of your stay. The last item is slow internet. All of our rentals have Spectrum Cable internet with Wifi and their latest modem/router which Spectrum says delivers 100 Mbps. I will test the speed next time there is a vacancy there to see if there is a problem but again, there have been no other complaints about slow internet. I look forward to speaking with this guest to see how we can remedy any of the frustrations she encountered because we want all of our guests to have 5 star experiences! Nancy
Great place with Great Views
Couldn't think of a better spot to stay in Pacific Beach, very nice villa with fresh and Modern furniture and appliances. Plus you can't beat the view of the bay.
Thank you for your review, Julian!
This condo was exactly as expected.
We loved our time in the condo. It was sunny, quiet and close to recreation. All amenities we expected were there.
This unit has been recently remodeled and it is great. We loved the views, parking, cleanliness, remodeled kitchen and bath etc. They also stock the place with everything including bikes, a grill, fans, and plenty of kitchen accessories. There is no central air but it is not needed as there is a cool breeze the flows through the condo. Finally, the service was outstanding as well with detailed instructions and information, etc. We loved this place and the experience.
We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to hosting you again in the future!!
This place is amazing! Very clean, great view and plenty of room.
Thanks for sharing Ryan.
We completely enjoyed our stay!
The view of the bay is fantastic, the people watching on weekends was superb (volleyball, bike riding, roller blading, running, frisbee, etc and sailing, skiing, wake boarding, fishing, kite sailing, etc), so fun.
The 2 bikes provided hours of exercise, and exploring for my husband and myself.
The king size bed was very comfortable, as was the couch in the living room.
The water pressure in the shower was amazing, every appliance, etc was in good working order.
The security is extremely tight, with many codes to remember, keys, garage door opener, locks. I did have to call Nancy's vacations as I wasn't able to get in the front door, it was my fault, but it did seem a bit complicated and a drag to have to go through all of those steps to come and go - which we did a lot of! That being said, you definitely have a sense of safety/security!
I give this property 5 stars and recommend it highly.
Thanks for sharing your experience!
