About the property

Imagine waking to the ocean's surf as it greets the sandy shore; before you is the endless view of blue Pacific. You and the ocean as you sip your coffee gazing at the serenity from your balcony, entertained by schools of dolphin sailing the waves and surfers challenging the waters. Never have to leave your reserved parking space--all you need is within a short walk--stores, supermarket, restaurants, salons, clubs-entertainment, churches, etc. So relax in your 'beachy' condo and enjoy with the ever-present ocean right outside your door.

More is offered for just a short drive: Sea World, San Diego Zoo, Legoland, Major Shopping, Gambling Casinos GasLamp District, Antique District, Seaport Village, Old Town San Diego, Outlet Malls, Del Mar Race Track and more.

What an enjoyable stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed staying at this property. First, the owners were unbelievably nice and very accomodating. The condo itself was very comfortable, clean, and the view was absolutely unbeatable!!! I loved waking up hearing the waves crashing outside, smelling the clean ocean air, and watching the dozens of surfers out there every single day. I plan on staying at this same location any time I find myself traveling through San Diego. I would recommend this property to anyone!! There were plenty of restaraunts, stores, and nightlife within walking distance, no car needed. Absolutely no complaints, just an overall wonderful experience!

Worst homeaway rental experience we have ever had->dated and dingy condo-needs complete remodel job

  • 1 of 5

We have rented directly through Fabi in the Capri by the Sea office 7 other times.She didn't have any one bedrooms for our dates, so we rented this condo.What a huge mistake! I am a faithful reader of reviews, and I don't know how I missed the last review that gave them 1 star also.Maybe it wasn't up when I was checking the reviews.This place is dark, dated, and dirty. I told the owner that it needs a complete remodel and asked her when the last time was that they actually had gone in it?!! When we saw mold on the shower curtain, and bathroom ceiling, that took the cake. We wanted out of the contract and asked for a refund.She said that they normally require a 3 night stay,but that she would refund the money if we could be out by 11am the next day,leave the place in the condition it was in upon arrival, and after she inspected it (really?!! maybe she should inspect it more often and carefully) Fabi didn't have anything available at the Capri,and we knew it would be difficult to find a place on that short of notice.So,we opted to pay the change fee for an earlier flight home and had to stay 3 nights.They definitely do not take pride of ownership like the other owners of places we have rented do. This place has almost original everything form the 1970's when it was built. I had asked her before we rented if there were updates that had been made and she just hadn't posted pictures on the the home away site, and she said there had been. Maybe the TV's!! It is not a "Haven Away"!! It wasn't a pleasant place to be-we couldn't enjoy relaxing like we could at the other rentals. We are from Washington State and the only place we travel to, and rent, are in Pacific Beach.We had just been at a 4 bdr. house the week before with the entire family, and then my husband and I were looking forward to staying for an extra week directly on the beach to celebrate our retirement.We had stayed at that house previously and they look after their guests, unlike these people!I Shouldn't have had to pay the cleaning fee because it wasn't clean upon arrival! After sending her pictures of the mold,other dirty objects,other safety issues,and bedroom TV not working,she didn't even volunteer to remedy the situation!Hard to get WIFI going too.I had to write to her twice to ask her if she had mailed the refund check,and deposit. They don't take payments through Home Away so we didn't know what recourse we had if she didn't send it.I have lots of pictures!! Don't waste your money.

This propery is in a perfect location to enjoy all the beach experience has to offer.

  • 1 of 5

While it was exciting to enjoy the beach, this condo is old and frumpy.The condo itself is badly in need of a complete overhaul. The kitchen cabinets are awful, countertops are old formica with nicks everywhere, wallpaper is peeling at nearly every seam, corners & doors are scraped to pieces, the bathroom ceiling is covered in mold, sofa smells of body orders, the wicker furniture is scratched and worn and the carpet is rolling. Everything in this condo needs a complete remodeling in updated decor.

Amazing, relaxing, wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place with an amazing view, comfortable beds, well-stocked kitchen, and there were 2 bikes to explore the area. My sister and I loved it and hope to visit again next year. Thank you Nancy for making this happen for us, you are a gracious and accommodating hostess!
