About this listing
Family friendly home one mile from the beach.
*If you are new to Airbnb, our space is a home share. This means we actually live in this home, but offer it as a rental while we are away traveling.*
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. 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. In summer months, you will hear Sea World's fireworks at 8:50 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, but on a fairly busy street. However, there is plenty of free street parking right out in front of our home.
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 and young children. I can also provide an umbrella stroller with advance notice.
I have lived in San Diego for 19 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. Three blocks to a full-sized supermarket, cupcake shop, coffee shop, and excellent Mexican, Italian, and Thai food.
10 blocks from the beach.
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 (this has confused people before). $50 fee for late checkout without prior approval. Thanks for booking with us, and we hope you have a wonderful time in San Diego.
