About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

OFF SEASON (Sept to May) Nightly rate is $275 per night. Summer rates are higher.

Weekly rental during the summer months: Saturday to Saturday ONLY.

The nightly rate does NOT include tax, cleaning, reservation fee or damage waiver.

The rate of $275pn is for the 'off season' which is September to May only.

Summer rates listed below and on my website.

I DO NOT list my Surf Rider Condo on Craigslist. There have been many vacation rental scams on CL recently. If you see a Surf Rider condo listed on CL and the nightly rate seems to good to be true, then it probably is.

Each Surf Rider Condo is individually owned and managed. I only own and manage this listing within the Surf Rider Condo complex.

This upstairs middle unit, ocean front condo is totally TOP OF THE LINE!! Luxuries include a Jacuzzi, large plasma screen TV with a DVD player, vaulted ceilings, fireplace, slate flooring throughout, granite counter tops in kitchen, travertine in both bathrooms, top of the line stainless steel appliances, Bosch dishwasher, and a front loading washer and dryer in the condo.


The interior offers breathtaking views from the living room, as well as from the pillow-top ultra comfy bed with 500 thread count sheets in the master bedroom where you can sit in bed and enjoy the waves, dolphins and surfers. There are also ocean views from the second bedroom which has its own private entrance. (yes, this bed also has high end linens for your comfort)

The Surf Rider ocean front condo will sleep 4 adults in two queen beds. The sofa in the living room will make into a double bed for extra sleeping space.

This condo is on the 2nd floor, the second unit in from the boardwalk with amazing ocean views and has a private patio with seating which is located outside, directly in front of the interior dining area. (Photo #5 shows the 6' sliding glass door and a 7' unobstructed window facing the ocean, this is where the condo's reserved patio area is located.) In addition to the private patio area for our condo, there is also a large common (shared) patio area surrounding the Jacuzzi and BBQ area complete with chairs and chaise lounges for your use.

We have stocked the property with all the cooking utensils you could ask for... lots of pots & pans, knives, hand mixer, the VERY important blender for making margaritas, wine glasses, wine opener, plastic tumblers to take to the beach, beach chairs, beach towels, serving dishes and utensils, BBQ tools's all here for your use and enjoyment.

Don't miss your chance!! Reserve your week in this deluxe ocean front condo now.

This condo has ONE reserved parking spot. (Please note: The owners do not guarantee your vehicle will be able to fit in the parking space provided, nor are we able to provide additional parking if the assigned parking is too small. We have never had a problem with large vehicles NOT fitting into the parking spot provided, though it may need to be backed in if it is a large SUV)

PLEASE NOTE: The owner does not guarantee that the Jacuzzi will be available or operational. Jacuzzi could be closed for service or not working. Although we hope that any such interruptions would be brief, owner is not responsible for the availability of the Jacuzzi during your stay.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Heather,

We have had a wonderful stay in your condo. It has met all our needs in a great location; it's a terrific place. The communication you provide along with the reservation and the written info in the unit are very helpful. Everything went smoothly. The condo is clean, organized and arranged with furniture and kitchen appliances & supplies to meet all our needs. All we had to do was unlock the doors & begin our San Diego beach vacation! Being able to look out the huge windows, or sit on our deck or lower patio & see the beach and fabulous boardwalk activity right in front of us was awesome & very entertaining!! Undoubtedly the best beach rental we have done so far. Truly love your place!

A Great Place for Ocean Breezes

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 stayed at Surfer Rider for three nights and loved it. It was great being right on the beach and listening to the waves. The condo was clean and comfortable and with the 10 pm quiet rules in the building is was very relaxing.

We had no issues during the stay and Heather was quick to respond to our questions.

Stay here, you won't be disappointed.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Loved being right on the beach!!

Great spot! Unit clean and quiet:) had a perfect time:).

The one thing I could say is to update dresser and fix up walls in the room that you enter into as it gives you an initial impression (not that it affected our stay in anyway - just a thought ) will stay again!

Owner's Response: Hi Tricia, Thank you for the review. I am glad to hear you and your family had a good stay! You arrived to some amazing sunny weather too!! I am aware of the patch that needs repainting on the wall in the second bedroom...we had a plumbing issue and had to cut in to the drywall to get the repair done. Our Surf Rider condo has been so booked we haven't been able to get in there and repaint that part of the wall. I don't have a vacant date for a couple of weeks so it will have to remain an eye sore until I can get in and repaint it then. :-/ Also, I will look at replacing the second bedroom dresser too. Thank you for letting me know. :) Safe travels home and thank you for staying with us! We hope to see you again. Cheers, Heather

Nice location, smaller than pictured.

  • 3 of 5

Good location, great walking along the boardwalk and close to a lot of places to visit and tour. The unit was nice but smaller than pictured. It needs some TLC and updating of furniture. We had major hot water issues in the unit and weren't really fixed until the day we left and before the next renters checked in. Heather did pay for a nice dinner and brunch due to the inconvenience we experienced with 2 days of no water while plumbers tried to fix an ongoing issue with the unit.

Owner's Response: Hi Carole and Fran, Yes, unfortunately the hot water issue was out of my control but thankfully I was able to have my plumber out to inspect the property the same day I was contacted regarding the lack of hot water in the hall shower. If the repair part hadn't needed to be special ordered we would have been able to fix the issue the same day. It's never fun to have issues like this while on vacation...but am thankful it was a hot water issue with only one shower, not both. Yours, Heather

I do not allow for cancellations and do not offer refunds should you have to cancel your stay after you reserve. I will do my best to work with you and try to get the condo re-rented should you have a change of plans. If I need to discount the rental rate of the condo in order to re-rent it for the same time frame you had rented, you will lose the amount of the discount as well as a $150 cancellation fee. If the condo does not re-rent for the time frame you canceled you will lose the entire cost of the reservation and not receive a refund. If you think you may have to cancel your stay I suggest you either wait to book my condo until you are sure, or purchase travel insurance. Make sure to read the TI policy so you know what IS and IS NOT covered. You can purchase it through any TI site you wish. I cannot insure against the reasons you may need to cancel, but you can by purchasing travel insurance. We are not a hotel and cannot immediately replace a cancelation with a new reservation. Once we have a reservation, it means that we lose all of the other potential reservations that may have wanted to rent the same time period. This is why we cannot accept cancelations. Thank you for your understanding.

You may pay using your Visa or MC. We do not accept AMEX. If you are booking for a stay that is more than 90 days away then 1/3 of the rental amount is due at the time of reserving. The balance is due 90 days prior to arrival. I do not take a deposit from you. Instead I charge a $49 NON-refundable damage waiver fee which purchases $1500 worth of damage protection for your stay.
