About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

WOW! is the typical reaction to our views from the windows and balcony. Enjoy the sights, and sound of surf from every room of this 2 bedroom - 2 bath Ocean Front condo on the water. Experience the feeling of seeing the sun-set at the edge of the continent, over the Pacific Ocean. That's why guests leave San Diego feeling refreshed, relaxed, and sun-tanned. FEATURING A NEWLY REMODLED KITCHEN!

Our Sunset Towers condo overlooks the great Pacific high atop Sunset Cliff in Ocean Beach. You're just steps from a favorite surfing and kayaking spots. We're located in a friendly residential community yet you're close enough to walk to the farmers market each Wednesday in Ocean Beach. Experience this Classic California beach town, complete with shops, and plenty of beach access.

Ocean Beach is the closest beach community to Downtown San Diego, it's also close to the San Diego Zoo, Sea World, and other famous attractions.

Our Welcome Packet offers all sorts of tips and information about Southern California and beaches around San Diego. In addition, you get useful information about our building, and your stay. I think our guests have the best explanations. 'We woke up everyday to the sound of waves.' 'The whole Pacific is OURS.' 'The waves lulled us to sleep each night.' 'I hope I can buy a super sweet place like this someday.' and... 'We will be back.' Leave your cares behind, and join us at our condo on the ocean. Our occupancy limt is usually 4 guests, thank you.

About Pete Fuentes

Ever since I was a kid I dreamed of a home on the water. Part of the reason is I was raised in the desert where it was hot, desolate, and land-locked. I walked into our condo and the view took my breath away. Now people from the desert, the city and the mountains come to live at the beach for a while. My wife and I decided to invest in this magic place. We love sharing that unique beach experience with dozens of guests from around the world.

Pete Fuentes purchased this condo in 2005

Why Pete Fuentes chose Ocean Beach

Few homes offer an 'experience' with-in a real estate deal. The vast Pacific Ocean is the reason I bought this home. It is located on the OCEAN! I'm glad to share that 'experience' with others.

What makes this condo unique

I love watching seagulls and pelicans glide past the window as they move gracefully down the coast. The only appointments you'll make are for the Sunsets, or to catch the full moon over the water. The rest is pure bliss.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Pete,

Thanks so very much for your prompt refund of my deposit, and also for being such a gracious host to us! Your Sunset Cliffs condo has the most beautiful view. The waves lulled us to sleep every night. Loved the brightness of the place and was happy to have secure parking at our disposal. You went above and beyond to make our stay pleasant, something of a rarity these days. Again…thank you! Wishing you the very best of everything and a prosperous rest of the year J

Point loma also offers scenic drives or walks along sunset cliffs, or bike along Catalina Blvd to Cabrillio National Monument. Hiking, biking, kayaking, are all on the agenda when you visit, plus you're just 5 minutes from Seaworld, 10 minutes from the Zoo, and Downtown San Diego.
