About Robin Espensen

I am really enjoying being a mom! It's my favorite thing.

Robin Espensen purchased this condo in 1994

Why Robin Espensen chose San Diego County

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi and thank you for taking the time to look for guest comments. It shows you are a savy, careful shopper and I admire that! While Robin's condo has been a very popular vacation rental for several years now, it has never had a guestbook of it's own. You can read all the comments for our 7 Riviera Villas vacation rental condos in our general guestbook on my website at "nancysvacationrentals" or at VRBO/18977. Robin's condo is directly below mine in the same building with the same floor plan and view. You will be able to get an idea of what our guests think of the building, the view, the Sail Bay area and of me, the person to whom you will be trusting your hard-earned money and vacation time! I hope YOUR comments will be added to them in the near future!

sincerely, Nancy; Nancy's Vacation Rentals

Fantastic Trip!

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I chose Robin's condo as a location for attending the MLB All-Star game. If these are top priorities for you, this is the place to stay. (1) The location is perfect. Easy to get to and a lot of activity on boardwalk during the day but very relaxing and quiet at night. Beautiful views from the balcony. A lot of time spent there. (2) The underground parking is a must in this area. (3) We are spoiled at home with a king size bed and need one when we travel. The bed was extremely comfortable. (4) Great walking area to restaurants and people watching. Would definitely stay again!!

Lovely condo. Terrific view.

June 25 to July 2, 2016

We certainly enjoyed our week on Mission Bay. Robin gave us very thorough instructions for accessing both the garage and the condo. She was available by phone to answer our questions. So was Robert, the Tech Support Guy. The property was clean and well cared for. Almost everything worked and there were many extra conveniences that we really appreciated.

Technically, the unit will hold 4 adults but more than 2 would probably find it a tight fit..

Outstanding condo on Mission Bay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week at this condo on Mission Bay. It was very clean and comfortable. We had all the amenities we needed and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Loved the cool breeze and view from the balcony. Mission beach and shops were just a short bike ride or walk away. Fireworks from Sea World on the weekends were a bonus. We would definitely stay there again .

The perfect condo for a perfect week.

  • 5 of 5

Right off the bat - The view is just remarkable! We all enjoyed many hours just hanging out next to the open patio door. Feeling the cool ocean breeze and watching the tide roll in and out. I grilled one fantastic dinner on the patio with the provided electric grill (3.5 on the temp gauge). The kitchen was decently stocked. The toaster and regular coffee maker were used daily. There was plenty of plates and silverware for four people. There is a large wine cooler, so stock up! If you like eggs, bring your own non-stick pan as we had some sticky issues with the older pan provided, but that was just a minor inconvenience.

The bedding and towels were fantastic. All very soft and comfortable. The king bed was a bit soft for me, but my wife had no complaints. The mattress on the murphy bed was more to my liking, but my son (he's 9) slept on that. My daughter slept on the couch, as she didn't enjoy getting kicked in the face throughout the night, but she said that was comfy as well (she's 6).

The bathroom was nicely done with the big Jacuzzi tub and glass shower. The water got hot quickly. Very nice!

Another fantastic plus was the underground parking for a single vehicle. We had no issues getting the minivan into our assigned spot. At the nose of the spot is where the two adult cruiser bikes, helmets, bike locks and a pump are located. There were also a few beach chairs in stashed away as well.

The quiet bay beach is right outside the garage or down the side steps. It was not crowded and the sand was clean. The kids made sand castles and buried each other daily. The path along the bay was easy to walk and ride on. We had no issues walking to the northwest part of the bay to the ocean side for breakfast. It was enjoyable seeing some of the other gorgeous beach homes in the area.

Just a super place to stay, but probably not for a family with small kids. The travertine floors could be quite loud. I don't think we received any complaints from the neighbors, but I was definitely ON the kids about using "soft feet".

Robin was great and answered every question we had promptly. Thank you for making or vacation so easy!

Remarkable property!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed in one of Robins properties. Each time we where more than pleased with our stay. This property is right on the peaceful bay. Beautiful views from the living room window/slider. Short walk or bike ride to resturants or beach. The property had everything we could need. All the linens where high quality. It's so nice that bike and beach chairs are included for our enjoyment. Robin was very helpful and made sure we had a great stay. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
