About the property

This fabulous large private 4/4 home in upscale Sunset Cliffs with it's spacious backyard, , BBQ and deck MAY seem like the perfect venue for your wedding, bachelorette party, birthday party, reunion, old college friends get-together or whatever but IT'S NOT. This is a quiet, peaceful residential single family home neighborhood and we need to keep it that way to not lose our right to do vacation rentals. If you are looking for a quiet family beach area vacation and can keep from subjecting the neighbors to Mission Beach type vacation rental noise, keep reading.... Maureen's private home in Sunset Cliffs will sleep up to 10 very comfortably without sharing all the beds. No, you can't squeeze in more just because there is room. We've made a pact with the neighbors. You can bring your furry family member, as long as you don't leave your pet home alone to bark incessantly and disturb the neighbors. It has a large private yard for enjoying the outdoor California lifestyle. Located in a safe and quiet (have I stressed the word "quiet" enough times?) neighborhood just a short walk to the ocean and Sunset Cliffs Natural Park for exploring the tide pools for which the area is famous. There is a little secret sandy beach just 6 blocks away at the end of Bermuda Ave but if you want a large, wide white-sand beach with lifeguards and restrooms and a long pier, Ocean Beach is just a little over a mile away.

Every Wednesday afternoon, OB hosts a Farmers` Market with live entertainment. Meander through all the antique stores and stay to eat in one of OBs wide variety of restaurants. There is even Dog Beach where your dog can run and play off-leash.

The main house is 2372 sf with large rooms plus there is a 200 sq ft detached guest studio studio with it`s own TV and fireplace, making this an ideal place for families that need al lot of individual sleeping areas. There is plenty of space for family togetherness but you can also find private areas for individual quiet time.

Home layout: Downstairs living room with wood burning fireplace and large 52" TV Huge kitchen open to livingroom, with island and 24" TV Downstairs two bedrooms; Front bedroom - Queen and single/single bunkbeds, bathroom with shower. Back bedroom - Queen and door out to back yard, bathroom with tub/shower.

Upstairs Master bedroom - King bed, 42" TV, sofa/day bed and a large private balcony, Jacuzzi tub and separate shower, plus the huge walk in closet with a lifecycle, Pack n Play and high chair. Upstairs den - full sized futon couch/bed, wood-burning fireplace and library.

Detached Studio - queen bed and single futon chair/bed, 42" TV, wood-burning fireplace and bathroom with shower. Garage and driveway will fit three cars. Laundry area in garage.

The nicely landscaped backyard has grassy areas and a patio with a Gas BBQ and a large outdoor seating area. ASK if this unit has AC!

The home is just 3-8 miles from almost everything San Diego has to offer - Old Town, Pt Loma Cabrillo Monument and Light House, Sea World, downtown GasLamp District, Little Italy, the Embarcadero with it's floating museums, Seaport Village and ferries to Coronado Island, and Balboa Park with it's many museums and the famous San Diego Zoo! They are all just a 10 min drive away, as is the San Diego airport!

We hope you build fond memories and come back year after year.

Rental was clean and quiet. Kitchen was spacious and great for multiple cooks. Good Location.

  • 4 of 5

This house was great for our three-generation family ( 8 adults, 2 young children) with the exception of accessibility for our senior in a wheelchair. While the management company was helpful in furnishing a shower bench, the one they left would not fit in either of the first floor showers! With just a few changes, this house could be wheelchair friendly, attracting a much larger clientele. Changes needed: Ramp to enter/exit house, Grab bars for toilets and showers, Handheld shower head in shower. fyi: bed in front bedroom is a usable height, but in the back bedroom the bed is too high to get into. The master suite on the second floor is very nice. The shower in the "Granny pad" is too small to turn around in. While we did not use the bicycles, the tire pump was very handy for inflating tires on the wheelchair. Minor maintenance issues that should be addressed: seal on dryer falls out, many of the wands on blinds are missing or do not work, sink stopper in downstairs front bathroom is broken, left sink in upstairs bath was running slowly, HDMI cable missing on livingroom TV . We liked having games available.

Great house in an outstanding location

  • 5 of 5

The location of the property is simply amazing. It is a couple of blocks from the cliffs overlooking the ocean, and a mile from the business hub of one of the coolest neighborhoods in San Diego, with wonderful places to eat and play. The house is beautiful with all of the modern amenities, clean, and well- maintained, and very comfortable. It was a great home away from home as our group (faculty and graduate students from our university) came to attend a large research conference.

Good house, great location

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed the location of the property. Each morning began with a run, and the location allows quick access to the coastline. The downtown area (1 mile away) offers plenty of options for dining along with a couple of neat/nice markets to stock up on essentials. The set-up of the property is great. A nice big kitchen with family seating just off of that. Adequately sized additional bedrooms and bathrooms with a very nice sized master suite and bath. Although we did not use the studio, it is a nice addition. The home provides beach chairs and bikes, which is a great add-on for the experience. The neighborhood is great, and provides a really comfortable feeling of security.

We only experienced a couple of challenges during our week-long stay. We had 2 smoke detector batteries (on consecutive nights) die, leading to each of the alarms sounding during the sleeping hours of the night. The rental company couldn't have really foreseen such an event, and I purchased batteries the next morning at the market to resolve the problem. The second challenge is in the lack of an HVAC unit. Despite our efforts to close blinds and prevent the sun from entering the house during the day, we found that the home was very warm at night. They provided multiple fans, which we utilized - but the weather was a little warmer than normal perhaps, and open windows at night just weren't enough to cool the property down to a comfortable sleeping temperature. The studio apartment was a sauna, and we did not use it at all after entering it on the first day. Again, this is not the rental agencies "fault". Just dumb luck perhaps, but I would have definitely preferred there to be a way to actively cool the home.

Overall we found the staff at Nancy's to be very helpful in the booking process, and although we did not phone them for anything during our stay, I'm quite sure they would've been ready to help in any way they could. We would recommend this property to anyone looking for the peace and tranquility described in Nancy's Vacation Rental posting.

We do hope you stay with us again, we'd love to have you back as our guests!

Vacation Family Holiday Home

  • 4 of 5

This large house was a good selection for our family for a Thanksgiving holiday. We had three families and three grandchildren. There was adequate room. The master bedroom upstairs was enormous. It could accommodate a crib in the massive closet. Almost too much space. The two other bedrooms in the first floor were fine. They were very near the living area and the sound traveled freely in the house so it was not quiet if others were up. The casita in the back was OK - not as nice as the accommodations in the main house. We didn't use it during out stay. Able to bring a dog - $90 extra cleaning fee (ouch!) but they do allow them.

The kitchen was large and well-equiped. Plenty of room for myriad chefs during Thanksgiving. The location of the property is very nice. Easy walk to Sunset Cliffs and short drive to the beach, downtown, etc. The management company was very good. They responded to requests quickly and were available whenever needed (not needed often). I would recommend this location and property.

Excellent for large families

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the house because our son was graduating from Pt. Loma Nazarene University. It was perfect for our situation. We had several family members (with families of their own) and the rooms/space was perfect.

The room with the bunk beds was perfect for my sister's family, who had small children.

The master bedroom's closet was as big as one of the bedrooms! The master bedroom was spacious with a

great ceiling. The master bathroom was also spacious. The hot water was immediate, which was great.

The kitchen had plenty of room, which was great, because we often had too many cooks in the kitchen. We also rented the cottage, which gave my dad his own space. Although, they need to put more signage up or warn people about the stairs in the bathroom. My dad is 84 years old and did not realize that there were stairs and tripped. Luckily he was able to catch himself, but it could have been a bad situation. (Maybe some reflective tape on the edges?) The little fireplace in the cottage was very effective. Also, the carpet in the living room needs to be shampooed and/or cleaned and/or replaced. We arrived late in the evening and needed extra bedding for my family. It would be nice if the rental agency let us know ahead of time where the extra sheets, comforters and towels were so we could find them easily upon arrival. The combination lock on the door was very helpful, as we didn't need to worry about keys. Also, the rental agency was able to give us an early check in (for the family members that arrived early), which was wonderful, as they had small children with them (and it was raining). It would be nice to be able to just leave the house when we left. I stayed up late washing dishes and wiping down counters, per instructed in the email from the rental agency. The house has pretty much everything you need: hair dryer, shampoo, conditioner (although my brother was looking for a BAR of soap and ended up buying one), lots of pots and pans, Tupperware, etc. LOTS of mugs, cups, silverware, knives too. Couldn't figure out the espresso machine. Sunset cliffs is within walking distance and is a great place to watch the sunset, or ride bikes (which were also a great thing that they have in the garage). we didn't use the firepit, but wanted to. Nice big yard. Overall, a wonderful place to stay, especially for a large family or multiple families.
