About Kenton

We are the three offspring of the owners, Helene and Richard, who purchased the Ocean Point condo property as a second home when it was built in 1973. Our parents still use the property on occasion. Their main residence is about one mile away in the house we grew up in, so Pacific Beach holds fond memories for us all. Over the years the condo has been a long term home to two of us at different times with just a few long term renters in between. Our family recently decided to make the condo available to vacationers with the three of us, Ralph, Kenton and Kinkani, assisting in the affairs of the condo. We will be available by phone if you have any questions. We have all enjoyed the plentiful restaurants, shops and close proximity to miles of beautiful coastline. Creating the Beach Abode has been a joint effort, and all of us are eager to make your stay a memorable one.

Kenton purchased this condo in 1973

Why Kenton chose North Pacific Beach

The Beach Abode is located in the Ocean Point complex, a four story building that sits directly in front of the beach and steps away from the beach access stairs. Before it spreads beautiful sandy beaches that are perfect for sun bathing, swimming, jogging, and surfing. The entire stretch of beach is regularly groomed and cleared of seaweed. When our parents first saw this complex being built they jumped on the chance to have a second home right by the ocean with all these features. The unit is on the south-facing side of the building with a peek view of the ocean and Crystal Pier from the bedroom window. The view from the living room window looks north toward Mt. Soledad, with swaying palm trees scattered near and far.

What makes this condo unique

Our complex is uniquely situated next to a beautiful walking and biking path that takes you within minutes to numerous restaurants, shops, bars, grocery stores, and bike/surf board rental shops. In addition, you can stroll to the end of Crystal Pier for a spectacular view of the coast line or a likely siting of passing dolphins. Don't miss a breakfast at Kono's right in front of the pier, or just enjoy a coffee next door while gazing at the surf. A little farther down starts the beginning of the boardwalk which takes you several miles down the beach toward Belmont Amusement Park. It's a great bike ride, and if you want a more tranquil setting there's a path just across the street along Mission Bay. There really is no need to get in your car, but if you do the condo is about a 20 minute drive to the world famous San Diego Zoo and Balboa Park, 15 minutes to Sea World and 10 minutes to the spectacular cliffs, seals and shops of La Jolla. Surfers will love the short walk to a beach break or an excellent point break a little farther down the beach.

Nice condo, close to beach!

  • 4 of 5

We spent a week in Spring Break here. It was a well laid out condo, close to the beach. I believe the condo was being transferred management, and we were the first guests under the new owner/manager. There were a few things missing that you'd normally find in a rental, like proper coffee filters and dishcloths, but not a big deal. Our biggest concern was that the condo could easily be broken into. The air conditioner/fans are simply sitting in the window and if you take them out, the living room window does not lock. I mentioned this to the new owners and I believe they will fix this issue. When I contacted them, they were very courteous and sounded genuinely concerned. One other thing that seemed strange is guests weren't allowed to use the washing machine. This is a first for any condo I've rented. I highly recommend this to change. However, you can't get much better for location, and my son loved the pool and hot tub! Overall a good experience.

Loved it!

  • 4 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at this nicely outfitted and decorated unit, which is just 300 yards north of the Pacific Beach Pier. Sunsets are spectacular from this location! Watching the Winter Olympics on the 60" screen was great, when not walking the beautiful beaches, or exploring all the exceptional sights within easy reach of this location.

Loved our stay and would repeat our choice.

Perfect for a family of 3!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect size for our family of three. Well stocked with beach toys and other beach necessities. Just steps from the ocean!

The pool is heated and the hot tub was great too. We would recommend this to anyone.

We had a slight mixup with the keys but the owner more than compensated for the error. We Would stay there again.

Very nice condo.

  • 4 of 5

Only steps from the beach, no view, but so close I just walked out to sit and read to the sound and view of the ocean. No premium cable channels, but there is cable. It was really warm when we visited, but fans did the trick, no need to start the mobile a/c unit.

Map

Car: recommended

Our condo is also a short drive to La Jolla Shores and its spectacular sea cliffs and caves for kayaking, swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving and a breathtaking seaside walk to a seal resting beach. This is a must-see destination for any traveler in San Diego. Scripps Aquarium in La Jolla is another great stop. Surfers will enjoy miles of beach breaks up and down the coastline, including several point breaks. Nature enthusiasts will also like Torrey Pines State Park in North County, where you can hike among historic pines, sandstone formations and panoramic vistas of the Pacific Ocean. It is also the site of a world class golf course. Whale watching boats are nearby too. Lego Land is 30 minutes away, Disneyland is 90 minutes away.

The world famous San Diego Zoo is about 20 minutes away, along with Balboa Park and its historical museums and space theater. Another 20 minutes beyond that is the San Diego Zoo Safari Park, which we highly recommend. Sea World is very close by, as well as a marina for all kinds of boat rentals. The US Navy's presence is big here, so you can even tour an aircraft carrier in downtown San Diego.

These are just a few of the many attractions in San Diego County.
