About Scott Ballard

We live in the San Francisco area (30 minutes into suburbia). We have a 21 yr old daughter and a 4 1/2 yr old son. We love the sun and adventure and San Diego had everything we could find and still be SAFE. The kids love it at both ages. For the 7 yr old we have Lego Land 30 minutes away, SeaWorld 2.5 miles away, ZOO 10 minutes away, Old Town 7 minutes away. THE BEACH 1 minute walk. We love the convenience to all the shops and restaurants. Our condo has a large kitchen that opens up to the family room. We love to cook and hang out as family and play games. The condo has a ton of games and flat screen TV's in every room. 'Even though Dad doesn’t thing the TV should be on during vacation

Scott Ballard purchased this condo in 2008

Why Scott Ballard chose San Diego County

Ocean Beach is said to be the 'Last of the REAL Old Fashion Beach Town'. It is Safe Safe SECURE condo 4 plex!!! 6 miles from downtown San Diego.

We were expecting a new son in 2006 and thought we should have a beach experience for him. We live in a suburb 20 miles outside San Francisco and wanted to have a casual safe beach town that had good restaurants. One very important ingredient was location and the walking distance to all the shops and restaurants. That is what we looked for over 2 years and found Ocean Beach San Diego. Also we wanted fun things to do from La Jolla to SeaWorld to the Zoo and Old Town. San Diego had all the things that would give us a wholesome experience and fun to match.

What makes this condo unique

So close to EVERYTHING!!

LOVED the spacious condo and layout!! LOCATION the BEST

  • 5 of 5

LOVED the spacious condo and layout!! LOCATION the BEST. this condo was exactly as stated so close to all the restaurants shops and beach. We rented a car but never had to or wanted to use it. The town of Ocean Beach is so cute and OLD FASHION. A throwback to to 50's & 60's old beach town. Loved walking down the pier (40 yards away) to get coffee and breakfast at the restaurant at the end of the pier. We sat and watched the surfers right out the window. Perfect for retired people or families with kids because everything was very close walking distance. We had our family with 2 children 6-8 with the 2 grandparents and we walked to all. Also the condo layout was perfect. the kitchen opens to family room so when cooking we were all together for fun times

More than we expected LOVED the LOCATION

  • 5 of 5

This condo was better than we could ask for. Our family LOVED the location of the condo as it was steps from the beach as advertised and 50 - 100 yrd from all the restaurants and shopping. The owner gave a a wonderful welcome package with information on things to see and where to dine and shop. The beach is great because there is surfing almost right out the door then down the beach 100 yards is a calm area for little children to play and swim. Having 3 children ages 5, 7, 12, the location made the trip perfect. We will always stay here when in the area.

Excellent!! The BEST!! Just as owner stated

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very well laid out all on 1 floor with large kitchen opening up to family room so we were all together. The master bedroom was very large and open. EVERYTHING was a short walk from the condo, the beach, shops restaurants etc.. SO SO CLOSE!! We liked the privacy of the small 4 unit complex and it had a security gate front and back so safe an secure. As advertised the Tempurpedic bed mattresses were the BEST!! Great condo for family with kids. Lots od sand toys and things for beach in garage. I will stay there again and again as the experience was GREAT

Would not return

  • 2 of 5

The host was easy and pleasant to work with. Surprised after reading so many positive reviews to find a really shabby condo. The carpet was stained throughout, seriously worn and buckling. The living room furniture looked like cast-offs from a student apartment. Opening and closing curtains without knocking down the curtain rods was an acquired skill. Pull knobs were missing from drawers. A shower curtain fell down. Bedroom lighting was dim. We had to call in the repairman to tighten the legs on the DR table, as it wobbled so badly we feared it would collapse.

Apparently, we are not Ocean Beach people, because we found the beach itself unattractive and the neighboring restaurants grungy-looking.

The condo could be spruced up and be a really nice place for people who enjoy the neighborhood. The layout was perfect for two couples; the two bedrooms and bathrooms are separated by the common space. The kitchen was clean and pleasant, illuminated by a skylight.
