Eight (8) Reasons to stay here:

1. The marine life is abundant. Head up to La Jolla to go kayaking or walk along the cove and view the seals and other marine life.

2. The sunsets are supreme. Head over to Sunset Cliffs and pick the perfect spot to watch the sun descending beneath the ocean or right from your balcony. Make the most of the experience by putting together a picnic and sitting on the edge of the cliff to soak in it all.

3. You can experience a taste of Mexico without crossing the border. Just a few minutes away, head to Old Town, historic center of the old city. Wander the streets and explore the many historical sites in Old Town and indulge in some delicious Mexican food from Old Town Mexican Cafe (OTMC). The best!

4. The beaches are as Californian as it gets. Head to Mission Beach, take a roller coaster ride at Belmont Park, people watch, and bike ride the boardwalk. Kid friendly area.

5. San Diego is home to the largest urban park in North America. Balboa Park, 1,288 acres, this urban cultural park is more than just a shady spot for a picnic. Wander through open space areas, gardens, and natural vegetation zones, check out the many museums and theatres in the area or take a trip to the renowned San Diego Zoo.

6. There are some Really good spots for brunch. Head into downtown by trolley and enjoy the historic Gaslamp District's many restaurants and seaport concessions. You can walk to the trolley station right from the condo.

7. Visit the Hollywood-famed Hotel Del Coronado. It's unlike any other hotel you've seen before. The building is one of the few surviving Victorian wooden beach resorts still standing. Look into having brunch there too.

8. San Diego, like our condo, is apparently a pretty classy place. Stay classy and stay in the Penthouse, hope to hear from you soon.

We do consider house swaps to Canada and Mexico and other great destinations.

Enjoy your stay in San Diego and I hope we can accommodate you and your guests, you won't be disappointed if you do.

Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

The location is great and the condo was extremely well-kept when my wife and I arrived. On top of that, Richard was a huge help throughout the whole process - before we arrived and up to when we left. I highly recommend this condo and my wife and I will gladly go back when we visit San Diego again!

Just what we needed!

  • 4 of 5
Verified Stay

The Penthouse provided us with some much needed down time and is centrally located to all the important places, eastward and northward for our family visits as well as easy to reach meeting places within 10 minutes from most attractions. Great views from all windows. Light and airy, breezy afternoons and evenings. A really good treat for our stay.

Great location and great house.

  • 5 of 5

The penthouse is a great location. Easy access to everything we wanted to do both north and downtown. The space is well laid out and everything you would want is there.

Richard was very easy to work with and very helpful when it came to accommodatimg our needs.

The house is on quiet the hill. If you aren't used to parallel parking then you definitely want to brush up before you try it on the hill. There were often spots on the street above or below that were flatter.
