About This Listing
Family friendly rental close to the beach.
Our condo is close to all San Diego has to offer. It is located in the Point Loma neighborhood of the city of San Diego. Point Loma is a residential area situated on a peninsula just north of the airport and downtown. On the north side of the peninsula is Ocean Beach and Sunset Cliffs Natural Park. Ocean Beach features a fishing pier, a weekly farmer's market on Wednesdays, restaurants, bars, sandy beaches, and shopping. Sunset Cliffs has surfing, tidepooling, a walking path, and gorgeous sunsets. The south side of the peninsula has the San Diego Bay with it's kid-friendly beaches, fresh seafood restaurants, and views of the harbor and downtown. At the tip of the peninsula is Cabrillo National Monument. This has hiking, tidepooling, whale watching (in the winter months), and sweeping views of Coronado, downtown, and into Mexico.
From our condo, it's a short walk to a supermarket, restaurants, coffee shops, bars, salons, the public library, the YMCA (with heated pool, hot tub, full gym, and fitness classes), and a park with a playground. We're an easy one mile walk from Ocean Beach. We are 2 miles from the nearest San Diego Trolley station and 2 blocks from the nearest bus stop.
We're a short drive (10 minutes or less) from the airport, Sea World, Downtown, Petco Park, the San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park, Qualcomm Stadium, Old Town, and Mission Beach.
Our condo has two floors. The first floor has a living room, fully-equipped kitchen, dining area, half bath, washer and dryer, and a small patio with a barbeque. The couch in the living room makes out into a double bed. Upstairs we have two bedrooms, one with a queen sized bed, the other with a lofted twin bed and a crib that can be converted into a toddler bed. There are two full bathrooms on this floor. Each bedroom and the living room have an Ipod docking station. The living room has a flat screen tv, dvd player, and an old school vcr.
The San Diego Airport is located right in the center of the city, causing all centrally located homes to have some airplane noise. To combat this, our condo has double paned windows and white noise makers in each bedroom for light sleepers. Flights are limited to the hours between 6:30 AM and 10:00 PM.
Our condo is in a small complex with just 9 other units. The other residents are mature and quiet- so this is not the place for people who want to party. Also, we have a 4 person maximum (including children and babies) in our condo, which is strictly enforced by our neighbors. Our condo is situated in a residential neighborhood, so there is plenty of free street parking right out in front of our home.
For your indoor entertainment we have a ton of books and magazines, some board games, a few surf movies, and a guitar and ukulele.
For those of you traveling with children, the condo has a crib, a little highchair that straps on to a chair, and plenty of books and toys for toddlers. I can also provide an umbrella stroller and some infant necessities (bathing tub, bouncy seat, etc.) with advance notice.
*This is our personal home, with our personal belongings in it, not a vacation rental.*
I have lived in San Diego for 17 years, and LA and Orange County for 16 years before that, so if you have any questions about planning a trip to Southern California, please just ask.
Thanks for looking!
Walk to everything you need. Close to the beach, without the crazy beach parking.
No pets, no smoking, no visitors, no parties.
This is a small (10 unit) condo complex with quiet, mature residents. We ask that guests be respectful of the residents. Also, as per our HOA, we have a 4 guest maximum. Our neighbors will enforce this, so please respect this rule. This is our home that we live in, so our personal belongings are in it. This is not a hotel, so there is no daily cleaning service. $50 fee for late checkout without prior approval. Thanks for booking with us, and we hope you have a wonderful time in San Diego.
Travelling with a toddler is very different, so I was looking for accommodations that would make our travels easier. Found that with Erin's condo! There was a crib, toys and books, booster seat, rocking chair, blackout curtains - lots of little things that you'd only think about when you've got a little one.
The location was very central - most attractions were within 20 minutes away. We had an early morning flight out, but we were only 10 minutes from the airport. Though being so close did mean there was a lot of aircraft noise, but it didn't bother us nor disturb our sleep.
The street the condo is on isn't very well lit, but there isn't a ton within walking distance anyway so it wasn't a big deal.
Erin's place was perfect for us. We were literally 5-10 minutes from everything we wanted to see in San Diego (Zoo, Seaworld, Balboa Park, Dog Beach, Cliffs, Castillo National Monument).
It was also great that she has a young daughter so we were able to stay in a kid friendly place with toys, a crib, books for bedtime reading, etc. I'd definitely like to stay there again next time we visit San Diego.
What a wonderful weekend spent in San Diego! The layout of Erin's home is perfect for a family. Both elegant and serene, it was great to have all the comforts of home. Erin was very attentive during our trip and quick to respond to any questions asked. She also equips guests with a very informative manual that entails information about your stay as well as places to visit. The location of their home is central to all attractions and beaches. Parking is ample on the street and there were great little restaurants to walk to. Our favorite was "The Point," which had the most creative breakfast concoctions and patio dining. We would highly recommend staying in this condo.
Erin's house was perfect for us, my husband, our little girl and I stayed for almost a week. Everything you need for cooking is there. The location is not bad as well, close to grocery store, restaurant... And the beach. She even provide info and tips on San Diego. We would stay there again any time.
