Overview

San Diego County Condo Rental Photos and Description

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.

Our 48 unsolicited reviews have an average of 4.96 (46 reviews rated 5 stars; 2 reviews rated 4 stars).

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 San Diego County

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.

Wonderful Host

  • 5 of 5

I would like to thank Donn and Barb for being so gracious.

I booked their beautiful condo for Aug 2016 for my cousin and I. Recently she was diagnosed with End Stage Liver disease so I had to cancel. They graciously returned my deposit and I hope to one day stay at their place and meet them.

Simply AMAZING

  • 5 of 5

First of all, I have to say how nice Barb, the owner, is!! She and her husband (whom I didn’t have the pleasure of meeting) are extremely helpful! All VRBO owners should be this organized! About a week before I was due to arrive, they sent me a 20+ page word doc with all of the good eating places, sites to see, etc. This was a tremendous help!!

I used Uber to get around while I was at Ocean Beach and every driver that dropped me off, said WOW, you picked an awesome place to stay!!!

Now, on to the condo! This condo has two bedrooms and two bathrooms!! The larger of the two bedrooms has a window that looks onto the ocean! I left the bedroom window open at night and the crashing of the waves was so peaceful!! If there was any noise from other condos or from the street, you certainly could not hear it!! SO PEACEFUL!

The condo is well maintained and clean! I am kind of weird about hotel stays etc, but I was very comfortable with the cleanliness and appearance of this condo! It is also only a half mile walk to the “beach area”, shopping and a variety of eating establishments!! You also have access to a small area directly below the condo. The rocks there are smooth enough to walk on barefoot!! BEAUTIFUL!

If you are going to be staying in San Diego and are trying to decide which beach to stay at, Ocean Beach is the one!!! I visited several other beaches and was not nearly as impressed as I was with Ocean Beach!

I will be going back to San Diego to vacation and I will certainly be contacting Barb to rent her condo again!!

Thank you for an amazing stay in San Diego!!

  • 5 of 5

Condo is wonderful! Located near shops and restaurants but easy access to highway, too. Very comfortable. Barb and Donn provide all the info you will need to enjoy San Diego and the nearby areas. They are very accommodating and available to answer any questions. So happy that we found them on VRBO.

FANTASTIC!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was fantastic! The view is absolutely breathtaking! The condo was great and had everything we needed. The location is ideal and we loved the walk down to the ocean. Donn and Barbara were so easy to work with and provided information about everything in the condo as well as the area with things to do and restaurant recommendations. Barbara met us at the condo to welcome us and made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. Also, they provided us with a very nice assortment of local beers and wine. We definitely hope to make a return visit!! Highly recommend staying here!!

Perfect location!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was in a perfect location. My family visited while I was there and we all just sat on the balcony, watching the water and the sunset. They kept commenting on what a perfect location it was. It's easy walking distance to restaurants and Sunset Cliffs Park but also easy driving distance to downtown San Diego and other venues. The owners, Barb and Donn, are super friendly and were quick to offer helpful suggestions as to places to eat, site see, or shop. The condo is kept very neat and having garage parking gets a double thumbs up. I would absolutely stay here again. Thanks again Barb and Donn!!

Owner's Response: We’d like to expand on two comments from these guests about our location. The first pertains to the statement that it’s “easy walking distance to restaurants”. The Ocean Beach Main Street Association lists 101 separate locations for eats and drinks in OB. Well over half of these are less than a mile from the condo. Second, driving into San Diego is easy and it’s close. Whether you are headed to the SD Zoo, Petco Park, the Gas Lamp Quarter, or any of the fine shops or restaurants in downtown, they are all within 10 miles. And yes, we do provide suggestions on how to make the best of your time in our city.
