Great comfortable spot for San Diego vacation
Generally enjoyed out time in this space. The penthouse is much larger than the pictures make it appear to be, plenty of room for 4 couples and then some. The couches in the living room are super comfortable and provide a great view in the morning. It's about a 5 min walk to the end of Mission Beach, so great access to the beach as well! It should be noted that this is on the end of the beach so the primary view is of the entrance channel and Dog Beach, still a cool view, but not the ocean.
Some of the cons. The place could be cleaner. Most of the glasses and dishes that we used were dirty and had to be washed by hand. Much of the kitchen has a mildewy smell to it, especially the pantry. The fridge has a sign on it that instructs you not to put things in it that are not already cold. This place costs thousands of dollars to rent. Replace or repair the fridge.
All in all, a great place to stay and could be amazing with some minor fixes. really good value if you're having a large group stay!
Great place to stay for our vacation with our extended family. Beautiful views. We we're 11 people (5 are kids) and it was the perfect size for all of us. Wonderful vacation!
Myself and 8 other family members just returned from a 4 night stay. We did enjoy our time even though it rained almost every day. The house however was not what I was expecting. The pictures and description of the house are a bit deceiving. The location and view is great but in honesty this is not a luxury penthouse. It’s very old and is in need of a remodel. Floors are miss matched in every room and super dirty. (So bad that all of our socks were black) kitchen wasn’t the cleanest either and had a really weird layout. Their was a stackable washer and dryer right next to the refrigerator which made it almost impossible to use the freezer because the door would only open about a quarter of the way. Also we were never able to get the BBQ working. All the furniture is very old and bedrooms are in need of new mattresses the bathrooms are very old. In fact the sink in the bathroom didn’t drain. It took a few hours for water to go down after teeth brushing and hand washing. The owners were having the living room window worked on when we arrived. (They did email me letting me know that it was being worked on but assured me that they would be done around the time of our arrival) they were still there when we arrived and told me they needed to come back the next day from 11-noon to do a water leak test and remove the scaffolding. I was ok with it because the scaffolding was a an eye sore of the building and obstructed our view. They came back but still didn’t remove the scaffolding. The window guy left and never mentioned a thing about being back a 3rd time but then showed up at 7:30am the next day without a warning and woke us up. I own a few vacation rentals myself and understand that repairs do need to happen but I just felt showing up at 7:30am without a warning was unprofessional. To sum it up the vacation was still very much enjoyable but I won’t be renting this penthouse again.
We are very sorry that your experience was not what you expected, and that we failed to meet our usual high standards for your stay. We understand and share your disappointment, particularly with the vendor failing to properly inform you or us of his non-scheduled return to the property. As you can see from other reviews, most of the problems you experienced are not at all common and if given the opportunity, we would have been more than happy to send the cleaners and handyman to remedy the issues you were experiencing. We have attempted to contact you privately several times, but we have had no response. As for not being a luxury penthouse, we never describe it as such despite its beautiful views; we choose to welcome many families with children into this home, and while we keep our furniture clean and in good condition, we love for our guests and their children to relax and be comfortable rather than nervous about damaging overly-expensive furniture and decor. After receiving your feedback, we took a close look at the photos on VRBO and do not understand what you saw that you consider deceiving. We feel that the pictures are very accurate. We are glad to hear, that despite the rain, you were able to enjoy your stay!
Great Location- Incredible Views- Really 4.5 Stars
My family, consisting of 8 adults, spent a week in this condo for our annual Christmas vacation. The views are really exceptional. I want to give this property a 4.5 star rating, but since that is not possible I had to go with 4 stars, primarily due to fact that it could use refreshing in the bedrooms. The living room, dining room, kitchen and one bath have been updated and are nice. However the bathroom fixtures in the other bathrooms and bedroom furnishings are not 5 star. Having said that we would stay here again in a heart beat if we were in the San Diego area. The layout of the condo works very well. There was plenty of space for all of us to gather in the living room.
Here are my Pros/Cons:
Pros: Location- This is a great location. You simply turn right from the condo and walk a short distance and you reach the beach boardwalk. If you turn left you can walk to a nice park.
View- We watched dolphins and seals. It was also interesting to watch the boats leave each morning. My sister in law loved watching the dogs play on the beach across the water.
More on the Location- Close to everything!!! Yet located in a nice quiet neighborhood.
Kitchen- Well equipped with everything you need. Basic supplies- trash bags, some spices, cleaning supplies, etc. are also provided which was very nice.
Accessible: Two of our family members have limited mobility and the elevator was perfect for them to get from the garage to the condo.
Bedrooms- Two of the bedrooms have balconies that over look the water. While there is only one bedroom with an en suite bathroom, the bedroom in the back of the condo (no water view) has a door that closes the bedroom and a bathroom off from the rest of the condo. This bedroom also stays darker/cooler than the other bedrooms which was perfect for my husband who likes to sleep in.
Parking garage- This property has a covered and secure parking garage.
Parking Garage-This is only a slight con- the two parking spaces are smallish. We had one mid sized SUV and a van. To park both of them you had to be very careful as there was very little space between the doors.
Some reviewers have commented on the airport noise. We did not find the plane noise to be an issue. If you are sensitive to noise bring ear plugs.
Also we did not see any signs regarding rentals and the people we encountered on/around the property were very nice.
FANTASTIC FAMILY VACATION!!
We had an amazing time. Our family consisted of 7 adults, 1 teen ,2 children, and 2 medium size dogs. There was more than plenty of room for all. Penthouse had EVERYTHING we needed for cooking and the beach, lots of towels, and beds were very comfortable. We did rent surfboards, boogie boards, SUP's and wetsuits at local rent shop. I will tell you that during our 7 days and nights we only cooked 2 dinners and 3 breakfasts. SO many eateries in the area it was hard not to partake. Highly recommend Guava Beach for a casual fun dining area (up the beach a ways) and Saska's for fine dining, (also up the beach and pricey but delish). One night we did a bonfire at the beach and it was so fun. The views from this place are unbelievable. A newer "thing" in the area are the Limes and Birds! Motorized scooters that you rent with an app. SO fun and really made it easy to get around even for this 57 year old grandma!! Our men golfed at Torrey Pines and it is a must do for any avid golfers, but secure tee times way ahead of time as we did.. Belmont Park was so quaint and fun for all. Two good size parking spots in underground garage, fit 2 SUVS, MDX and Rogue. Overnight parking available for extra cars just down the road from house at beach which is viewable from house. Plus rental staff was so accomodating and available. Yes, planes start taking off from San Diego airport around 6:30 AM but GET UP! YOU DON'T WANT TO SLEEP ITS SD!! Our party is very active, surfing, boogie boarding, walking, taking runs along boardwalk, sightseeing (OLD TOWN, CORONADO, SAN DIEGO ZOO, SEAPORT VILLAGE, MARITIME MUSEUM, etc) we did it all plus played games at night and enjoyed our cocktails. First rate all around. Don't hesitate this place is awesome.
The Condo was very clean and had more amenities than we expected.
Loved the view. There was seven of us. We had more than enough space and we were very comfortable. Wish we could have stayed longer.
La promenade, officiellement connue sous le nom de Ocean Front Walk, est une voie piétonne qui longe la plage le long de la plage, du bout de Law Street au nord, à Mission Beach, qui se termine à l’embouchure de Mission Beach. Le long de cette route pittoresque, vous trouverez un certain nombre de magasins, restaurants, bars et Belmont Park, un parc d’attractions amusant pour tous les âges. La promenade au bord de l’océan regorge de piétons, de cyclistes, de patin à roues alignées et de touristes, la plupart des jours de la semaine, en particulier le week-end, mais cela vaut la peine de braver les foules et de venir visiter ce haut lieu.
Pour atteindre le point de départ du sentier, dirigez-vous vers l'océan une fois que vous atteignez Law Street et Mission Boulevard. Suivez le chemin clairement indiqué à gauche. Vous serez immédiatement accueilli par les vues sur l'océan Pacifique sur la droite, ainsi que par les nombreux amateurs de plage et les foules d'autres personnes qui marchent, font du vélo et du roller sur le même sentier. À votre gauche, vous verrez un certain nombre de petits hôtels en bord de mer. Environ 0. 5 miles dans votre promenade, vous verrez Crystal Pier, l'une des meilleures jetées de l'état en raison du nombre de poissons capturés et de la possibilité de poissons de bonne qualité. Si vous souhaitez faire un peu plus de kilométrage, arrêtez-vous ici et dirigez-vous jusqu'au bout de la jetée, où vous pourrez admirer un coucher de soleil spectaculaire si vous marchez correctement ou si vous avez une meilleure vue de la vie marine et des surfeurs.
Depuis Crystal Pier, continuez sur la piste en direction de la tour principale de secours. À ce stade, vous passerez par le tronçon le plus fréquenté de la promenade du front de mer, en raison du nombre de bars et de restaurants populaires à proximité. C'est également à cet endroit que la plupart des gens s'installent pour se prélasser au soleil et gambader dans les vagues fraîches. Si vous faites de la bicyclette, soyez prudent dans cette zone car elle peut être très encombrée, surtout le week-end. Le kilomètre suivant continuera à être encombré, mais si vous vous frayez un chemin à travers la masse, vous trouverez soudain la foule qui s’éteint tandis que vous passez près des bars, des boutiques et des hôtels situés en bord de plage. Vous commencerez maintenant à voir des locations de vacances et des appartements sur votre gauche - en passant par une soirée entre célibataires ou un week-end en famille dans les belles propriétés sur votre gauche. À votre droite, l'océan Pacifique restera un site constant pour l'ensemble de votre promenade.
À environ 1,5 km du sentier, vous verrez le parc Belmont au loin, ce qui se remarque par les énormes montagnes russes qui surplombent le parc d'attractions. Vous rencontrerez également plus de bars et de restaurants, ce qui vous permettra de savoir que vous êtes maintenant entré à Mission Beach. À ce stade, il est facile de se laisser distraire et de vouloir laisser sortir son enfer, chevauchant les montagnes russes et peut-être même s’arrêter pour jouer au laser tag. Si vous êtes assez discipliné pour rester sur le cap, continuez sur Ocean Front Walk en passant devant de plus en plus de maisons et de condos en front de mer, pour vous rendre au parking de South Mission Beach, où les foules sont généralement moins nombreuses. Voici où vous allez faire demi-tour et revenir sur votre route en revenant au nord sur Law Street.
C'est votre aventure, donc si vous êtes distrait par un arrêt à Belmont Park, une friandise dans l'un des stands, choisissez de devenir un con de la plage ou si vous voulez une bière au retour, personne ne vous jugera. Après tout, toutes les randonnées ne sont pas aussi pittoresques et animées, vous pourriez aussi bien tirer parti des environs
