Pacific Beach Condo Rental Photos and Description

Beautiful and quiet Sail Bay is the best kept secret in San Diego. Hardly any vacation rentals are allowed on the East side of this bay looking West to the gorgeous sunsets. Water-skiers, catamarans, sail boats, outrigger canoe teams, kite-surfing. Go down the elevator and join the people strolling on the boardwalk or ride the four provided beach cruiser bikes on miles and miles of paths along the bay and oceanfront.

Sip wine on the balcony as you watch the sunset over the ocean or walk around the bay 8-10 minutes to the ocean to watch for the ''green flash.'' At night you will see the two big paddle-wheel boats cruise right by your window, the lights of the strand across the bay and the moonlight reflecting off the water.

This Non-Smoking, large (1100sq ft) 2bedroom/2bath condo features a queen bed in each room and a queen sofa bed in the living room. ASK us if this unit has AC!

Flat screen TV in living room plus another TV in one bedroom, DVD player, Cable internet with WiFi. Dining table for 6 with an awesome bay view! Lovely California open-style kitchen with a view and everything you need for cooking and dining at home.

Just OK

  • 2 of 5

I want to start by saying the response rate from the owners/managers of this property was amazing!!! I emailed them and they responded immediately. That being said I would not rent this place again for the following reasons:

1. NOT CHILD FRIENDLY: This condo is on the 3rd floor and has windows 6 inches from the ground. If you want any sort of air flow/breeze they need to be opened. This is not safe at all. The owners response to this was they would bring bars so the windows could be opened a certain amount only AND they have never had anyone complain. Any parent of a small child would not be ok with this situation I promise.

2. NOT EASILY ACCESSIBLE: There are more than 5 different keys/locks/codes to access the condo. A code to get into the garage....a code to get the key....the key is required to go upstairs from the parking......a WAAAAAAY to long code to get into the house.....don't forget the key to go back downstairs to the have another code for the bikes....and a code for the lawn chairs. Again....I've got kids. It's enough to remember all their stuff to get to the beach let alone all the other stuff. We actually found an elderly couple who had just arrived from a long flight locked in the garage. They had the long list of codes/keys etc. printed out and were trying to figure everything out. I don't fault the owners/managers of this. But just take this into account when renting here. It's annoying.

3. JUST OK: I'm not looking for the grandest vacation rental but this place was just ok. They advertise BBQ---imagine a deck George forman grill. They advertise AC-----have someone strong enough to drag it from the bedroom closet and understand how to hook it up. Cooking in the kitchen---no condiments, etc. (because they say travelers don't want it and oil spoils) and the VERY bare essentials for cooking. Sooooo many instructions it's a bit intimidating (don't wear shoes on the carpet....only use the strings on the left to open the shades....the list goes on).

All this being said we had a wonderful vacation here with my family. San Diego is great and the location of this condo is great too. I just would look for something a bit more accessible with my three young kids.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write your review. We are happy you were pleased with the staff of Nancy's and the thoroughness of their responses! I'm sorry to hear you did not care for the unit. The Riviera condos are some of our most popular rentals and generally receive stellar reviews. However, I can understand how having children in this unit can seem a little overwhelming at times. We do our best to make our instructions/directions clear and concise while maintaining the security and comfort of our homes. We also try and maintain the basic spices and kitchen amenities needed for cooking and enjoying meals in. Again, we certainly want you and your family to have an easy stay so we apologize if it wasn't quite that! We are, however, very pleased to hear that you had a wonderful family vacation, barring these items you listed. We agree San Diego is an amazing place to vacation! We hope that you reach out to us the next time you're here - we would love an opportunity to find you the perfect rental for you and your entire family! Warm Regards, The NVR Team

Elaine's on Sail Bay was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Nancy saved us! We initially were suppose to stay at the Homewood Suites since I'm a member of the Hilton Club and I love staying in the 2 bedroom suitespecially, and of course racking up points, until I got there and foutdoor out we were under a bridge! We canceled the test of our 7 days and we called the Navy base, as my husband is military to get a room and when we got there they had over booked us so we had no where to go! I love VRBO and looked up some placestuff while laying in bed at and extremely loud Mariott south my 3 children sleeping on the floor, and found Nancy's vacation rentals and called leaving a message somewhat begging for help! She called me right away the next morning and helped me pick a pave that she believed would be great for us and our 3 boys, and oh my gosh it really was! The view was amazing, you could walk right out to the beach, there was parking thank God, and the condo was just perfect for our family of 5! There was beach toys, bikes even though not for kids I thought that was cool, I mean it was great. And it's on the bay so it's quiet and safe water for my kids too, but anytime we wanted to hit the waves we drove around the corner to Pacific Beach, Mission Beach and Belmont Park which took literally a few minutes and that was fantastic! Sea World was literally around the corner less than a mile, and everything else was like less than a20 minute drive... Anyway I could go on forever, but thank you Nancy again for saving our trip, we had an amazing time, and we come to San Diego every year so we'll only be using your rentals from now on!

WA vacationers

  • 3 of 5

The condo was really clean, which is important to me. The view was beautiful and the balcony was a huge plus. The size of the condo was adequate for our family of 4. Unfortunately we were ever so lucky to get a heat wave with high humidity during our stay. With only one window in the bedrooms and no windows in the bathrooms across the hall, it was impossible to get a decent draft even with the fans. If the owner could, we would recommend putting in windows that open in the bathrooms to create better air circulation. (The air conditioner only worked in the living room area.) The street noise during all hours of the day and night was something we were not used to which also made it hard to sleep. We would also suggest supplying a small broom and dust pan for the sand that does get into the condo and to help keep the floors clean. Fixing the large space under the front door may also help keep the ants out.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for sharing your experience with us. We work hard to provide a relaxing experience for each of our guests and will continue to focus on improving the comfort of each of our units. We appreciate your understanding during an uncomfortable heat wave! With many residents escaping the heat at night for cooler breezes, that could also make for a noisier atmosphere. We are continuing to better prepare units for such times, and offer a/c rentals to assist as best we can in the bedrooms as well as the living spaces. We're happy to hear that, overall, you enjoyed your stay and look forward to having you as guests on future trips to San Diego! Best, The NVR Team

Beautiful location

  • 4 of 5

This is very clean condo with an outstanding location. Excellent for quiet families. This is not for loud folks. The condo was overall as described in the add. We are a family of 4 and found the space more than adequate. The view is also very nice. The sofas in the living room are quite run down and very dusty. The mattresses in both bedrooms are old and in need of changing. There were quite a few ants in the kitchen. Some of the instructions for access to the condo were out of date but the administrators were there to help. We would definitely stay here again and hope that the owner's take our feedback into consideration.

Owner's Response: All the furniture in this condo is exactly two years old this month. The sofa and chair in the living room are leather so I'm not sure how they could be "dusty." Someone tore a hole in the leather on the ottoman very recently and we are replacing that with the renter's damage insurance claim but otherwise it looks just like in the photos. We have never had a complaint about the beds before and they are only two years old but I will go test them out myself. This building is sprayed each month around the perimeter for ants but on rare occasions a few somehow make their way up to the 4th floor! It's rare but happens everywhere on occasion. We are always just a phone call away for any problems our guests have. Sincerely, Nancy
