About the property

2 bedroom, 2 bath condo with ocean views, a bath and dual shower in master

This is where you want to be in San Diego! The location is perfect, and the building is one that everyone stops to look at. The hot tub or patio is a great place to take in the fresh air and California sun, watch for dolphins and enjoy the Pacific Ocean breeze! Our two bedroom, two bath condo is styled with granite floors, and countertops, large flat screen TV, fireplace, travertine tiled bathrooms, and modern appliances. Our condo is one of the largest at the Surf Rider and the master bath features a jacuzzi tub with separate shower featuring dual shower heads. It is perfect for a romantic getaway or a family vacation with a queen bed in the master bedroom and a full sized bed in the second bedroom. A queen size pullout sofa in the living room provides extra flexibility. There is also plenty of seating with a round dining table and kitchen bar. Modern appliances and granite countertops will make cooking fun, although there are plenty of restaurants to try while you are in town. You will enjoy watching the constant activity on the boardwalk, walking to great shops and restaurants, or riding the roller coaster at Bellmont Park just a few blocks away. Of course one of San Diego's finest beaches is just steps away, and it is easy to take the kids to Sea World for the day as it is only 2 miles away!

You can rent bikes, surfboards, (or take lessons for those of you who have always wanted to try!), rollerblades, jet skis and other recreational equipment all just around the corner! Or you may join a game of sand volleyball or just work on your tan! And that's just during the day, for those of you who like a little nightlife, Pacific Beach (just a couple of miles up the road) is a favorite destination for many of San Diego's college students and young people. Or you can head downtown for a night in San Diego's famous Gas Lamp District, or to Petco Park for a Padres game! The possibilities are endless!

This condo is located in the historic Surf Rider building on Mission Beach. Fully renovated in 2005, it has all of the most modern amenities and fixtures. Our unit is located on the second floor with views of the ocean, beach and boardwalk from the master bedroom and living room. Also, there are two private chairs in the nook just outside the window for your private use.

When you need a break from the beach and activities you can enjoy the flat panel HDTV in the living room or the flat panel tv's in either bedroom.

The kitchen is fully furnished with brand new state of the art appliances and granite countertops. The bathrooms feature travertine tiles and counter tops.

The central patio is a great place to gather and enjoy a cocktail or cold glass of lemonade. It features two gas grills a hot tub, (which is the envy of everyone walking along the boardwalk) top of the line lounge chairs, and showers to wash off the sand from the beach!

No parties are allowed on the property. Parties may result in immediate removal from property without refund.

Great Location!!!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay and Dominique was such a pleasure to deal with :)

The rental was spacious with a very good view of the ocean considering it is one on the units on the back of the building.

The rental was very clean and comfortable and we had no issues!

The ocean is steps away, Belmont Park is a 5 min walk and Sea World is about a 5-7 min drive!

Great proximity to everything...especially if you have young kids

Our girls loved playing on the beach & the rental is stocked with plenty of beach toys!

Very convenient to have a washer and dryer in the until as well, we would definitely recommend this rental to anyone visiting San Diego in the future!!

Thanks again Dominique for being so helpful and accommodating with our stay đź‘Ť

Great location for families

  • 3 of 5

Quiet location a bit removed from the shopping and nightlife of Pacific Beach and Belmont Park. Very close drive to Sea World, and a good mall with grocery and fast food. The condo itself has all the appliances and electronics a family would require, although some weren't fully functioning when we were there. That said it is clean and well kept by the owners. Steps from the beach and an incredible sunset view. Closet full of beach toys for the kids. The property has very modern design and esthetic, but not as functional as it could have been. For instance we had some issues with storage space, bathroom privacy, and natural light. Plus unnecessarily complicated lighting with about 8 switches in each room. Parking is VERY tight even for a small vehicle, and locked garbage/recycling was a bit of a hassle. Overall we recommend for the location and condition.

Properly maintained, well stocked, very spacious!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in unit G with two families in other units within Surfrider. Ours was (by far) the most spacious, although it was tough to get a cross-breeze because it's in the corner. Considering the unit has A/C, this didn't bother me at all, but our friends love sleeping with the windows open, so I know it might be an issue for others. We only turned the A/C on a couple of times as we were very comfortable most of the time.

The kitchen was more than adequately stocked, there were plenty of towels and even beach toys, shovels, beach chairs and an umbrella. (a HUGE plus!!!)

I thought the master bed was very comfy, but my husband complained that his back hurt.(can't please everyone, I guess) My youngest slept on the couch - he's small, so we didn't even pull it out into a bed. There were sheets for him, but no comforter/blanket. I just threw a clean beach towel over the sheets and he didn't mind, but hopefully they'll make sure there's a blanket if future guests need one.

The showers seemed brand new, instant hot water and all appliances worked well. Dish soap, laundry soap, hand soap, and paper products were stocked so well that we didn't need to buy any extras. We utilized everything from the grill on the main deck to the gas stove to the shared lounge chairs for people-watching on the boardwalk.

We loved relaxing in the hot tub at the end of the day and the location can't get any better - the beach actually feels semi-private because it's not too close to public parking (and no one wants to haul their stuff to this center-beach location).

I have to be honest - the online photo of the master with the bathroom-immediately-behind-the-bed had me worried, but it wasn't as awkward as I expected. Sure, they could have built a wall between the room and bathroom, but it certainly opened it up to feel less cramped.

We've done vacation rentals before and this was by far the cleanest, most organized experience we've had. We're already figuring out a date to come back next year with our friends! Thanks for a great experience, Dominique!!!

We've been coming to San Diego for a week for a few years now and have really wanted to find one beach house that meets all our needs... and this is it! We love that it's right off the beach, a short walk from Beltmont Park and has a washer and dryer. We have 3 kids (2,6,9) so those things are important to us. Another huge plus is the hot tub! We were here on a busy week/weekend and all our neighbors were great! I don't know if they were super quiet or if this beach house is built really nice, but we never heard neighbor noise.

Some of the reviews I read said there weren't chairs or sand toys but there were. We left a few of our sand toys for future guests. Beds were comfortable, plenty of towels, and good amount of dishes. We were easily able to make ourselves at home.

We will definitely be back next year!

Perfect oasis

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at other rentals on the beach and this rental by far exceeded our expectations. This unit was spotless (I'm a clean freak) and well kept. Perfect beach location there's even a nice view of the ocean while you were sitting on the couch in the living room . Plenty of utensils in the kitchen , towels, chairs, grill, hot tub... and that view while relaxing on the patio!!!! Awesome visit.
