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

First trip to California

  • 5 of 5

Our first trip to California was truly wonderful. The condo was very nice and well equipped with everything you need. The only issue we had was there was a heatwave issued. For a few days the weather was unusually hot for this time of year and there is no air conditioning. We tried to leave the sliding doors open but bugs came in since there is no screen. We understood this was very unusual, however we did let the owner know and made the suggestion of installing a screen. She was a pleasure to deal with and answered emails very quickly. There was an odd smell coming from the sink and right away she sent someone over to address it while we were out. By the time we returned the smell was gone. The condo had all the essentials you needed to cook, if you chose to do so and also had really nice plush towels and beautiful bed linens. There was soap and shampoo in the bathroom and the kitchen also had dish soap, towels, nice dishes, utensils, pots and pans, etc.

The building has security which is very good. You have a designated parking space in the garage underneath the building. You need to use a key in the elevator to get to and from the garage to your floor. The storage unit in front of your space has a combination lock and inside the unit are boogie boards, 2 beach chairs, 2 cruiser bikes, and a beach umbrella. The units can use a little updating, however they do the job they are meant to do. Once outside the unit you are literally steps from the water. There is a really nice path that goes around the bay where you can bike, walk or jog. The Catamaran Resort is a short walk from the condo and they have a riverboat called the Bahia Belle which for $10 per person will take you around the bay. Check out for schedule and events. On Friday night there was a live band. Sometimes at night people would bring their beach chairs down by the water and build a small fire.

You can't ask for a better location as it is very close to all the major attractions, Seaworld, downtown, Gaslamp district, the zoo and Balboa Park. It is much nicer and quieter to stay here than near the ocean but is close enough to bike, walk or drive to it. The balcony is good for relaxing with a glass of wine and enjoying the beautiful view and people watching.

Absolutely wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this lovely condo - in THE perfect location for a week. We have been coming to San Diego over the past few years - this is BY FAR the best best best of the best. Beautifully appointed, comfortable, easy access to everything-plus being right on the bay with a spectacular view. We will definitely come here again! A great great find.

Lovely house!

  • 5 of 5

We spend almost 2 weeks in that lovely house. We had fantastic vacancies thanks also to this location, that we found confortable, and with all what you would need when you rent an apartment for vacancies at mission bay. The proprietary, is a gentle person, very kind and helpful in any situation.

I'm sure we will come back

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Robin's condo on the Bay!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was a perfect location for myself, my elderly mother and two 17 year old girls. The view from the condo was absolutely amazing, especially the sunsets. The condo is extremely well supplied with everything we needed to feel at home. We will certainly be back for next year's vacation!

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Great location. Worked with Nancy's and they were awesome. Unit was right on the bay with an awesome view of bay. Close to everything. We had to get used to the no A/C in San Diego but we made it. It was really only stuffy during the day for the most part. Fans are provided to help. I would definitely recommend to everyone. Very clean unit with All you need.
