California Dreaming. “America’s Finest City” is San Diego’s official slogan. Though undeniably bold, this claim is echoed by a myriad of visitors to the city. San Diego’s extraordinary force of attraction is most likely due to its unique blend of beach holiday and city trip rolled up in one.

Sunshine is the order of the day in California’s second-largest city. Boasting more than 300 sunny days a year, tourists don’t have to worry about bad weather. Still, it is advisable to pack a sweater as it can get chilly along the coast at night, and morning clouds may occasionally hover over the city. Having said that, San Diego’s mile-long beaches and very special atmosphere easily make up for this.

City charm. San Diego is well worth a visit – and not just because of its beaches and oceanfront. The city centre also has plenty to offer, including Balboa Park, San Diego’s green lung. This large open space contains several museums as well as the famous San Diego Zoo that spans 100 acres. All well worth seeing! Thereafter, the place to party and celebrate is the Gaslamp Quarter with its wealth of bars and clubs.

For holidaymakers with more time to spare, San Diego is also an ideal starting point for trips to Mexico. The town centre of Tijuana can be reached by bus in less than half an hour. Travelling from the big dazzling city to Tijuana is a journey into another world: more colourful, louder, but by no means less fascinating.

The magic of the coast. The Pacific Ocean on one’s doorstep – what could be more alluring? The city neighbourhoods of La Jolla and Pacific Beach are lined with a plethora of restaurants and bars. When dining on the oceanfront, there’s a good chance of being visited by seals and, with a bit of luck, even spotting some dolphins. Navy Pier located further south is home to the USS Midway Museum. The museum is a decommissioned US Navy aircraft carrier and houses a large display of aircraft and helicopters.

Beach day. Anyone looking to be closer to the water can get comfortable at one of San Diego’s magnificent beaches, such as the white, sandy beaches of the Coronado peninsula: a great place to relax and watch the sun set! Those eager for something more action-packed will find it at Mission Bay which features Belmont Park, an oceanfront amusement park. Water sports enthusiasts are well catered to at La Jolla Shores with surfing, kayaking, even snorkeling with leopard sharks on offer. The only place to get even closer to such awesome ocean dwellers is in San Diego’s SeaWorld park which is just a mile away.

We do consider house exchanges to other great destinations, either nearby or worldwide, just ask.

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

Spacious and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

This was perfect for us. Everything was lovely, clean, tasteful and artistic decor. We really used the kitchen and laundry facilities which saved us money and space while traveling. The appliances all worked well. We could have used a little more silverware and dish towels, but we made it work with what was there. I was a little disappointed that there was no telescope, after all. I guess something happened to it. The huge walk in closet and the ceiling fan in the king bedroom were a bonus, as was the extra water faucet of filtered water in the kitchen. This was a great value for the price, extremely comfortable, and close to Mission Beach, the conference hotel where our daughter was registered for the Go Congress, and not too difficult to get to B street where our son lives.

This condo was lovely!

  • 4 of 5

My family and I just returned from our vacation late last night, and I must say we had a wonderful time.This property was lovely, comfy and clean. It was close to everything, only 15 to 20 minutes away from everywhere we visited. There was construction nearby, but didn't affect us at all. The only issue we had was the toilet in the master bathroom being a little difficult to flush. Also, it would have been nice to have an extra television for the downtime nights. Other than that, this is a winner. Would definitely recommend this property.
