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.

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

Updated San Diego Penthouse

We had the pleasure of staying here on our Christmas vacation 2016. The condo is beautifully kept and appointed, and located centrally to everything San Diego has to offer. The view from the balcony was splendid ,the neighborhood was safe, and we had a wonderful stay. We highly recommend.

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

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.
