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

The rate of $295pn 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 too 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,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 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.

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 UPSTAIRS 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 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 downstairs 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.

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!

great location, comfortable home.

  • 4 of 5

My wife and 2.5 year old had a great time. The location is perfect! The unit itself is clean, efficiently laid out and quite comfortable. Unfortunately, the hot tub was dirty, one of the BBQ's was broken and there was construction going on outside our door (grinding the exterior 2nd floor/tiling/painting). Obviously this isn't something the homeowner can control as maintenance is a necessary evil , just too bad it all happened during our stay. The wifi was painfully slow but since we were busy all day this didn't effect us much, just a minor annoyance.

Overall a beautiful unit in a great location. Great place to watch the sunset.

Thank you

Awesome Vacation Rental

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was over St. Patty's and we had a great time! The condo is very nice as well as nicely stocked with essential household items; shampoo/conditioner, trash liners, laundry and dish soap. It was just refreshing since we have stayed at many other rentals in which that responsibility falls on the guest. During our stay we had a minor hindrance that was completely out of Heather's control but once she was made aware of it she reacted immediately and did what she could to make things right. The property and location are awesome and we would definitely book it again. Thank you Heather for being so helpful during our stay! It was appreciated!!

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

This condo is a great location on the boardwalk! Heather was very helpful to provide information prior to our arrival and answer all my questions. We enjoyed our time with friends who rented 2 other units. There were a few items that need repair/replacement (patio chair, toaster, sliding door, and TV in guest bedroom wasn't connected). It was nice to have a BBQ and spa in the common area.

Rates & Availability

Taxes and fees are additional

Additional information about rental rates

Cleaning Fee $175
Damage Insurance $59

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.

Owner's Cancellation Policy

  • 100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
  • Service Fee fully refunded on cancellations that qualify for 100% refund.
