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.

Fantastic property in a fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is great! No more than 5-10 minutes from everything you'd want or need. Communication was great, and we had no issues during our stay. All instructions were clear and labeled, and we had everything we needed. Thank you so much for letting us stay at your place!

Comfortable with great views

  • 5 of 5

The condo is spacious and very well equipped,washer/dryer,dishwasher etc and an outside BBQ. Beds are comfortable,sheets and towels readily available. Lots of wardrobe space in both bedrooms,bathrooms have good powerful showers and constant hot water,making it a very comfortable place to stay. If you don't hire a car Uber is excellent as the property is on a very steep hill about 15-20 minutes walk to the nearest tram stop.There is construction ongoing next door which was noisy at first but work should be completed soon,however think this may encroach on the property's privacy.The owner is extremely helpful and easy to contact if the need arises.

Owner's Response: You're right, the location to transportation, taxi, trolley, bus is just a few minutes away. Parking is almost always open on the street, but the slope can be somewhat challenging of you are not used to it. We do provide garage parking for those who do not want to park on the street. The construction next door is in the final stages of interior finish and should be complete in a couple of weeks, say early July. Our place has a lot to offer, and we are always available to assist in your stay.

Great Location! Clean & Quiet

  • 5 of 5

My husband, my son (3 1/2) and I had a great stay at the penthouse. We were a quick drive to anywhere, including Old town, Legoland, Sea World, the Zoo, the airport, and multiple beaches. This was our first time using a rental house instead of a hotel. We saved money on nightly costs, we had access to a washer/dryer for needs (common with a toddler), and having a kitchen to use at our disposal really helped to save some money on eating out. Having the free wireless was a plus, although we didn't use the TV at all and barely used our tech since we were so exhausted from our daytime excursions. And we couldn't even tell that there was construction going on, they didn't start til late in the morning and were long gone well before dinner time.

Overall, we had a wonderful time and I wouldn't hesitate to rent the penthouse again should we return to the area.

I can't think of anything I'd improve!

  • 5 of 5

We've rented many apartments over the last few years. This might be our new all time favorite. When my college aged daughter first saw it, she loved it and declared she was "never leaving." (We almost had to drag her away.) The apartment is spacious and very comfortable for three people. I'm sure four people could stay there without feeling at all cramped. The decorating is fun. It looks exactly as pictured. The porch and outdoor patio area are nice. There are some games for younger kids. The kitchen is very nice and very well stocked with enough pots and pans to cook all our meals, including even plastic containers for leftovers. We appreciated that there was coffee, salt, pepper, dish detergent, and even a stick of butter, something I'd forgotten to buy when I shopped. The washer and dryer worked well.

There was construction next door, but it was never a problem. We heard a few voices at the construction site at about 7:30 am, but we never heard any machine noise. It was very quiet in the afternoons, evenings and at night.

The communication with Richard was good and he kindly offered to let us check in early and leave late due to our circumstances. Check in is easy - he simply sends you a code to the door.

It was a very good experience. If we go to San Diego again, I would certainly stay there again.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your detailed review. Yes, there is construction on the adjacent property and as you indicated, it doesn't effect the use of the condo. It looks like that that building will be complete in a few weeks, maybe mid June. Thanks again and we look forward to your next trip.

An excellent stay!!

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I visited San Diego for several days before going on a coastal cruise and wanted a nice sized place to stay for the visit. This condo was amazing! The location was very close to everything we went to. It was clean, comfortable and an excellent place to relax in after touring around town. I would highly recommend staying here!

Owner's Response: We price our rental fairly and provide you with everything you would expect to find as if you were home. The location couldn't be better, not on the beach but so close to almost see it. Thanks, and I hope your cruise was as good too.
