Wonderful place for family vacation; would have been fun for just adults too! Great jogging and restaurants/activities; close to the zoo also. Kids loved the roller coaster and rides in the "back yard". Highly recommended

We love the castle and stay here every chance we get! The location is perfect as we are close to La Jolla and all it has to offer and to the gas lamp district. Bravo to Claudia and Skylar who run the property with perfection

Just got back from the castle, three days with my 20 something grandchildren and their friends, six of us total. We all loved it despite some of the worst weather in years. Claudia and Skyler were great and hooked us up with skim boards and bikes during breaks in the weather. The amusement park next door was closed, looks some major renovation work is going on but still plenty to keep busy. Great place to relax, everything you need, never felt cramped or closed in in-spite of the weather. Everything is high end could not ask for more.

Owner's Response: Hi Jim, Thank you for your positive feedback. I am glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay despite of the weather. I hope you feel motivated to come back during our famous Spring-Summer weather, and relax outside at the balcony. Thank you also for taking good care of the apartment as well. It was a pleasure having your family.

Great location!

Just spent our week between Christmas and New Year's with family at the Castle. We absolutely loved it! Great location, great people watching from the balcony. Terrific cookware inside the unit. Everything you would ever need in a vacation rental is right there.

Car: recommended

The location by itself is priceless. The apartment is steps away from the famous Belmont Park, there are retailers downstairs and many shops around, bars, restaurants and much more in the bay area. Downtown San Diego is easy to reach from here (15 minutes by car) and so are most of San Diego's attractions such as Sea World and the San Diego Zoo.

Mission-Beach is a San Diego favorite among locals and visitors alike. It lies between Mission Bay and the Pacific Ocean and has nearly two miles of beautiful white sandy beach. The colorful Boardwalk at Mission Beach runs for three miles ending north of Pacific Beach and is always filled with bicyclists, runners, skateboarders and rollerbladers, and has designated lanes for walking. Bicycles and in-line skates are both available for rent on the Boardwalk right below our Vacation rentals which is located inside a Mission Beach landmark: The Hamels Castle!
