Overview

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.

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.

10 out of 10 !!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything from the owners to the condo were incredible!! We would positively stay here again when we have the opportunity to go to BEAUTIFUL SanDiego again! Perfect location on the ledge of a cliff with the roaring waves as your back drop every day! The layout of the condo was SO comfortable for a family of 4. Don't think twice!! This is an opportunity you don't want to pass up!!

Literally a home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was beautiful, clean, comfortable and had a beautiful view of the ocean from the master bedroom and living room. The condo was a quick 10 minute walk to ocean beach and in a great location to drive to sea world, the zoo, and balboa park were literally miles away. Although the weather for our week was mostly cloudy, back home in Massachusetts we were getting a foot of snow! Barb was nothing short of amazing. She and the condo provided everything we needed to have a wonderful week away. Having the well stocked kitchen was a plus, vacationing with an almost 2 year old, dinning out itsnt always an option. Parking was also a plus, finding street parking can be stressful, so having somewhere to park made our week just that more relaxing! I give this place 5 stars and would recommend to anyone!

Beautiful property with a fabulous view!

  • 4 of 5

Close to Ocean Beach. Can walk into town. Great Beach scene. As cooks we would have liked more counter space but the kitchen has good amenities. We had some problem with appliances...refrigerator leak while we were there and I believe it was fixed after we left. The owners were very friendly and contentious. Great area to explore ...particularly Balboa Park. Free outdoor organ concerts on Sunday's. Recommend a Segway tour to orient you to the area. Great 3 week stay.

Owner's Response: We did more than fix the refrigerator problem, we replaced the frig with a new stainless steel model. We always try to be responsive to our guests, whether it’s bringing over additional cookie sheets or providing tips on things to do in the area. We realize that keeping out guests happy is one of the most important things we do as providers.

Great place with great views

  • 5 of 5

The owners of this unit took substantial effort to make this stay comfortable and convenient. We didn't meet them but they emailed a large welcome package describing all the amenities of the unit as well as the local attractions and shopping.

This unit has a designated underground parking spot which was a lifesaver because street parking fills up fast.

Thanks to Donn and Barb for taking the time to setup this condo and making us feel like it was a second home.

We would definitely return and recommend this unit as one to have!
