About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

If you want to enjoy the ocean and the amenities of San Diego, there’s no better place than On Top of Sunset Cliffs. Sitting right on top of the beginning of the cliffs, this 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom condo provides views and sounds of the waves from every room. If you get tired of being amazed by the pelicans flying by at eye level, counting the surfers riding the waves, or watching the superlative sunsets from your bedroom, balcony, or living room, there's always the oversized jetted tub to relieve your stress or watch one of the two HD televisions.

The stainless steel kitchen and open floor plan provides a wonderful ambiance for entertaining or simply for enjoying your time at home. All furnishings were purchased new in 2011.

It's close to all the attractions: Less than 3 miles to Sea World, 4 miles to the Trolly, 5 miles to Belmont Park, 8 miles to the San Diego Padre's ballpark and downtown San Diego, 9 miles to the San Diego Zoo and museums of Balboa Park, or 10 miles to the San Diego Charger's stadium.

It's all here.

Come and see why our guests love this place.

About The Owner

We are both educators. We started our careers in Ohio, spent 10 years in Wyoming, and eventually moved to San Diego in 1990. Although we love to travel, once you visit here you'll see why we now live in San Diego. Our home is 1 mile from this vacation rental, and we plan to sell our house and move into the condo part time when we retire.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2011

Why The Owner chose Ocean Beach

Being teachers for over 30 years, we know how important it is to get away from 'normal life' and forget about work while relaxing in a new environment. We looked for a condo in San Diego for over 2 years before finding this gem. Ocean breezes, the sound of the waves, pelicans being so close that you can almost touch them, and the closeness to so many attractions make this a great place to live.

What makes this condo unique

It takes about 1 minute to walk to the closest beach (just the time to walk down the stairs). A five minute walk south takes you to the Sunset Cliffs Natural Park, and a five minute walk north takes you to downtown Ocean Beach, one of the most famous and unique communities in San Diego. With its farmer's market / street fair every Wednesday, it's a great place to pick up flowers, locally grown food, snacks, and see live entertainment.

  • 5 of 5

We were welcomed by Barbara who showed us around the nice!! Wine and craft beer awaited us as well as comfy beds with quality bedding. The ocean views from this property are nothing short of amazing and the sound of the waves was so welcome to these land locked Montanans! A very handy location for beach, shopping and playing tourist! Barb and Donn provided notes regarding what the area offered that proved very helpful. We would stay here again and can wholeheartedly recommend this property.

Loved this place. Wonderful view, close to everything. We saw the area with no problem from this condo. Good food in Ocean Beach, no need to go anywhere else. You are 30 minutes from the Sarafi zoo and 15 minutes from Balboa Park. close to downtown... Would stay here again and again. Barb gave us places to eat and places to see. wonderful place.

Great place. Clean,comfortable, well furnished, interesting location and fabulous views.

  • 5 of 5

Though it was a little colder than we expected, it was a great location for touring the immediate neighborhood and the greater San Diego area. The views were to die for and the condo was really comfortable for the three of us that stayed there. It would also be great for two couples. Owner is a pleasure to deal with.

What a great view. Loved the sound of the waves putting us to sleep

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to see San Diego from. Not quite as big as the pictures made it seem, but plenty of space for two couples. The master suite was wonderful, with a view of the cliffs. The second bedroom is better suited for kids than a second couple, but quite adequate. We loved sitting on the balcony sipping wine and watching the sun set.
