Lovely apartment - perfect view and constant ocean sounds from all rooms. Convenient to walk to shops and restaurants. Comfortable beds - oh, and did I mention the incredible view and immediate access to the wide sandy beach? Tip: driving and parking in San Diego is awful. Park your car in the assigned condo parking and simply use the handy #30 bus outside to go downtown, old town, etc.

Highly recommended. The balconies (3 of them) are wonderful to sit and have a cup of coffee or better yet wine, with fabulous views of the beach, pier, and ocean. Ron, the owner, is great and not intrusive. Would and am going to stay again.

Amazing views of the ocean!

  • 4 of 5

We just returned from San Diego. The weather was a welcome respite from the subzero temperatures we left back home. The gated parking garage was an added plus in that area. Kono’s restaurant offered a generous breakfast and was just across the street. Listening to the waves throughout our stay was relaxing. I would suggest providing hangers and adequate paper products, ie. toilet paper and Kleenex, to your potential future guests.

Excellent ocean front condo

  • 5 of 5

My family came to visit me in San Diego and wanted to stay in a beach front getaway. This condo exceeded all of our expectations for location, space, and views of the boardwalk and beach. It's a fantastic value for a million dollar view. Ron was an excellent host and provided all that we could ask for. I would highly recommend and my family plans to stay here again in the future!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great condo in an awesome location. Ron was a very good host, accommodating and responsive. Unit was immaculate upon arrival. Will definitely be staying here again for our next vacation to San Diego area. Will not get a better view of ocean and sunsets right from one of the three balcony’s available with this unit

Perfect location and very refreshing

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful, relaxing time at this condo (See the Sea #76). The location is pretty much perfect—spectacular views of the ocean and beautiful sunsets each evening over Crystal Pier, one block to CVS and two blocks to the grocery store, many nearby restaurants. The boardwalk out front provides opportunities for people and ocean watching from the three decks (we forgot our binoculars but will remember them next time). The beach is truly steps away right in front of the condo and was perfect for swimming, the water very refreshing. There is a convenient shower to rinse off sand just inside the gated garage and a parking space that goes with #76. The sound of the waves lulled us to sleep each night—it was lovely that both bedrooms looked out on the ocean and had individual decks. We had our cake and ate it too, because we were close to the action by Crystal Pier and yet on the fourth floor the sounds of people below us were muted by the ocean.

The condo is older and modestly furnished, but everything that matters to us was just right. All the essential kitchen appliances were fairly new and working well. And the beds were quite comfortable. Towels and linens are furnished along with hairdryers but do bring beach towels. You can rent chairs and umbrellas at Ray’s Rentals, about five blocks away.

Ron responded quickly each time we interacted. One minor thing to note is that the $200 refundable deposit is not completely refundable after all since there is a credit card fee Ron has to pay out of it, so it’s really $158 dollars that gets refunded. I suggested to Ron that he itemize differently to make this clear up front and avoid confusion.

I highly recommend the condo. We are already considering a family vacation next summer at See the Sea, possibly with two condos so our adult kids could take the second one.
