Stunning retreat with a view, in heart of SD's PB

  • 5 of 5

This condo rental was an astonishingly delightful surprise during my family of four's recent Christmas-New Years trip to San Diego. While the description and pictures revealed nice accommodations, we had no idea the high-end comfort awaiting us for such a reasonable price: plush leather couches, gas fireplace (came in handy when we had to turn off the AC for a cold spell that blew through) gorgeous kitchen with brand new Bertazzoni gas stove, huge dining room, glass railing deck overlooking the bay, classy and super comfy bedding.

The neighborhood was quiet and safe for the fam. PAcific Beach feels like a quiet yet active beach side town with lots of restaurants and bars. We were a 1 minute walk to the bay, 5 minute bike ride to the ocean and main strip, 15-20 minutes to other amazing spots like La Jolla cliffs, Cowles Mountain hike and downtown San Diego.

I can't recommend this place more highly. Great value. We'll be staying here again during our next visit to SD!

Our stay at this condo couldn't have been more perfect. It was immaculate and tastefully appointed with everything (and I emphasize everything) that anyone could use or need to make their stay comfortable and enjoyable. We like to cook and the kitchen exceeded our expectations. The location was also perfect, close to the beaches and downtown San Diego. A sunrise breakfast on the terrace overlooking the bay was a great way to start each morning. The garage for our car was an added luxury.

Fun to the Max! Supreme Satisfaction!

  • 5 of 5

This vacation will go on record as one of our top favorites ever. We envisioned a quiet get away, low-key, but found after arriving, there were so many great activities within a short distance from the condo, we were able to do a lot. A detailed list of activities was provided at the condo by the owners, including restaurant suggestions, etc. I would concur with the recommendations! These included a picnic at the Tide Pools, Cabrillo National Monument, a sunset private charter sail - perfect for celebrating a special occasion while enjoying the lights of San Diego, Wild Animal Park, ocean kayaking the La Jolla sea caves. The condo was lovely - clean and beautifully decorated and provided the perfect setting, directly across the street from the beach. We started each day with a cup of coffee on the patio, enjoying the ocean view, and a walk along the beach. The furnishings were high quality and extremely comfortable. Beautiful wood floors throughout made it easy to relax and just enjoy the surroundings. We grilled food for our final dinner and lamented the end of our stay. We have already highly recommended the property to friends and relatives and will plan return visits to fit in the rest of the fun. The management company and owner obviously take great pride in the condo! Top notch accommodations and top notch customer service! Our thanks to you! Steve & Mitzi Katz

Possibly the Best Kept Secret in San Diego!

  • 5 of 5

As a vacation rental owner, I can be a little picky about the places I stay. In addition, I know San Diego and the areas to stay. This place was a perfect "10". The location was amazing. I was able to look through the living room window at Pacific Beach and keep my eye on my teenagers. Although San Diego in the summer heats up, with windows open and the breezy ceiling fan, we remained cool. The place has been recently updated with tasteful designer touches. I'm not sure what I could say to deter anyone from this wonderful rental. I think we may be back in San Diego soon just to stay here :). Thank you Frank for providing a lovely, seamless place to stay on our travels.

Great Get-Away Beautiful Condo!

  • 5 of 5

Our daughter goes to school at SDSU and my husband and I have stayed in various locations over the past few years. Frank and Hildy's condo is by far the BEST PLACE we have stayed in the San Diego area. Mission Bay Park is across the street with many miles of bike and walk paths. Downtown San Diego, La Jolla, Pacific Beach and Balboa Park are all close by. The condo is beautiful! Very well maintained. The kitchen is well equipped. There is a big master bedroom with a master bathroom and a balcony outside of the bedroom. You can sit out on the balcony and look at the Bay. Beautiful Sunsets!! There are 2 other bedrooms that are nicely furnished. Living/family room is so comfortable!! Beautiful view of the bay from the living room.

Garage has a washer/dryer, additional refrigerator and beach chairs, and our favorite beach cruiser bicycles. You can ride on the bike trails for several miles. Many restaurants nearby as well as grocery stores. Frank provided us with an information packet prior to our arrival which assisted us in accessing the condo and amenities. He even suggested restaurants in the area. Thank you Frank and Hildy for opening up your vacation home. We cannot wait to go back again.
