Why Tim Amdahl chose Coronado

When we found Coronado Shores complex we knew it was the perfect place for us. The fabulous view of the Pacific Ocean and San Diego Bay view and just a short walk (1/2 block) across the lushly landscaped grounds to the beach. The complex is immaculately maintained as is our particular building, El Encanto which was completely remodeled in 2009. There are four pools/spas, 8 tennis courts, 2 clubhouses, and many activities for owners and guests. The complex is just south of the world famous Hotel Del Coronado and only 10 minutes over the bridge to downtown San Diego and all of its attractions. This property is one of my favorite places. We get there as often as possible when it is not rented. Our unit has been remodeled/updated. Enjoy your vacation!

What makes this condo unique

The View...Beach...The Village atmosphere...Great Restaurants...Affordable Golf...Airport Location... Sometimes we park my car in the garage when we arrive and it never leaves the space. We like walking downtown to the Village for breakfast or lunch at one of the many outdoor restaurants, for dinner at one of the fine gourmet restaurants. We love shopping at the quaint shops along Orange Avenue. Then there are the lovely sunsets viewed from the deck of the Beach Club with a cocktail, or from the sand or a bench on the beach. We frequently use the outdoor B-B-Qs at the pools for family and friends get-togethers. It's a 30-minute ferry ride from the Point to the mainland and the boats run every half hour to and from Coronado. If we do want to get in my car, we can be in downtown in 10 minutes, the airport or Balboa Park/San Diego Zoo in 20 minutes, or the Wild Animal Park in 45 minutes. And best of all...the weather is perfect year round. Coming from the midwest with winters below zero / snow and humid summers, we can certainly appreciate that.

Perfect Snowbird Escape!

  • 5 of 5

Spent 3 months in this lovely home escaping Minnesota winter. Everything is as described and more. The furnishings have not been abused and the kitchen and linen closets are well stocked with newer , high quality items. We met many friendly people at Coronado Shores so had new friends to play golf and go out with. The views from this 15th floor property are gorgeous any time of day or night. The owner and his property mgr are extremely responsive and accommodating. On the rare occasion we asked for something it was taken care of right now. Wonderful experience we will be repeating next winter😎

Magical summer

  • 5 of 5

We loved this condo. The views of both the bay and ocean made for peaceful evening on the patio with a glass of wine and no afternoon sun. The amenities were thoughtfully supplies for our July stay. We BBQ at the pool with all the proper tools. The linens, especially the towels, were lovely and the master bed like a dream. Francine the agent was helpful and terrific to work with. All in all this is a 10.

Millionaire's month

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I vacationed in this unit during the month of May 2011. The listing pictures do not do justice to the beautiful picture quality views. Upon opening the front door, we felt immediatly at home and at ease as we settled into our "million" dollar stay. The condo was furnished with nice lines, cozy furniture, and all the basic amenities. As an ocean lover, I awoke every morning to the sea while my husband enjoyed the bay sailboats during his morning ceral. We are already looking forward to our next stay.

Mike and Teresa Dean - Rochester, MN

  • 5 of 5

We have had the pleasure of staying at this beautiful condo twice in the past 3 years. It is fabulous. We can't wait to go back. The views of the ocean are spectacular - - we really enjoyed the daily walks to the quaint town of Coronado - along the beach. The pool areas are very clean and relaxing. We have traveled to many destinations....and this is one of our favorites. This condo is meticulous and yet very comfortable. Writing this review makes us want to hurry back.

Great Family Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I took our little girl to Coronado for a mini-vacation. It was so refreshing to wake up to an ocean view every morning. We loved being able to walk almost anywhere on the island, we really didn't need our car. There were a lot of cute little shops to browse in, plenty of dining choices, and a beautiful sandy beach to walk on. The condo was the perfect size for us (and all of our baby gear), nicely decorated, and clean. I can't wait to go back!

Great Unit and Ammenities

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the unit during fall break with our four kids. The views were amazing and everything was nearby. The complex had more than enough (i.e. pools, tennis, beach, gym, etc.) to keep us all entertained. Additionally, it was an easy walk to the quaint Coronado town, and all the restaurants and shops it has to offer. Nice upgrades throughout the unit. Highly recommended.
