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

This was my personal residence from 1994 to 1998. I really loved living there! I felt like I was on vacation all the time! I love this place.

What makes this condo unique

The fabulous view! Being so close to the water!

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

Immaculate and Gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5

We were there just last week. 3/8/17 to 3/15/17. This home is incredibly immaculate and even more beautiful in person. It's well stocked with every amenity you can think of: pack n play with sheets, beach towels, beach chairs, bikes, bbq grill, movies, sun screen lotion, etc,". Kitchen has everything you need just buy groceries at the local Von's or Trader Joe's (3 mins away if that). Robin's instructions were extremely helpful. Every question I had big or small was answered in her instructions. READ THEM FIRST. The neighborhood is safe and close to everything! We drove all over from La Jolla, Escondito, to Coronado Island and it was all a quick drive from the condo. The view is absolutely beautiful, panoramic and unobstructed. All the neighbors we meet were very kind and welcoming. I can't say enough good things about this property or Robin. It even has a jet tub and a bar with a wine refrigerator! The beach is clean and only steps away. Stay here you will not regret it! We will not stay anywhere else.

Frequent visitors to San Diego

  • 5 of 5

Robin's condo was a delight to stay in. It was beautifully and elegantly decorated and offered a spectacular view of the bay. The kitchen was great to work in and equipped with everything we needed. The bed was extremely comfortable. The weather had been cold so the gas fireplace was a welcome treat and lent to a warm and cozy atomosphere as we enjoyed the flatscreen tv hung above it. We would definitely recommend this condo.

Dreamy on the beach away from maddening crowds San Diego!

  • 5 of 5

Eleganst, tastefully decorated, travertine, granite, soothing and inviting art on the walls not competing with Sail Bay view through wall off glass, yet homey-comfortable. Has every amenity u might want or need to cook gormet or enjoy plethora of fine dining from low cost to spendy...temp controlled wine bar too. Deluxe powerful jetted two person tub plus glassed-in shower and lots of shelving and storage for your things in bathroom and rest of home...solid king bed and supportive queen Murphy drops in front of view.

I loved being on the beach every day walking, riding supplied bicycles and interacting with a locale that felt local - most are from surrounding neighborhood. Super polite condo neighbors whether visitors or homeowners. Spotless beach with CLEAN sand unlike Santa Monica Palisades filth. I didn't realize how very special Rivierra Drive million dollar homes are (this one bedroom easily sleeps 4 is over $800,000, at over 900 sq feet could be a 2bedrm but instead maximizes fabulous view! Perfect. + elevator close yet far enough to not be noisy. 👌Washer/dryer.

I didn't realize how exclusive it is inside the Bay versus across the bay in a rental right on the Pacific Ocean which was a congested, cacophony, over run like a New York City sidewalk versus the quiet polite paved walking and riding all around the inside Bay...and a short stroll to the Catamaran Resort where we rented sailboats at less the cost of other boat rentals on the Bay. Music , happy hour, champagne brunch, lunches and dinners are 4 Star at the Catamaran - nice to avoid the Holiday sidewalk and road crowds to enjoy this resort, but found side streets and a short cruise to tony La Jolla. Just blocks away are great Mission Bay and Pacific Beach joy spots and shopping: Trader Joe's and Sprouts which suffice for those strung out on Whole Foods. Walk and ride a bike and never want to leave. Locals at surf spots south toward Cabrillo Park Ocean beach were decent to our surfer, and nearby Pacific Beach's Tourmaline surf break was wonderful - lots of beginners and tourists who were kind.

Don't know if it's a positive or negative for one, but for me it was unusual and took me back to my childhood in the 60's and 70's in Los Altos Hills CA and Ashland Oregon: I saw almost exclusively on the beach around Sail Bay every day for a week 99% Caucasians.

I adore RobinEspensen. She's considerate and available. She loves her 2nd home and hopes to have guests who do too.
