Property Details

Updated: Mar 26, 2015
Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

Relax on your private deck with beautiful views of San Diego Bay, the downtown skyline, Coronado Island, and the nearby mountains. Watch the fighter jets take off from North Island and frequent sail boat races. Where else can you have lovely sunrises and watch the sunset reflected off the skyline from the same deck chair? And YES, all the view photos shown in our listing are taken from our (your) patio deck!

Our home is located less than 10 minutes from the airport, Shelter Island, Harbor Island, downtown, and walking distance to restaurants, shops, yoga, a bakery, farmer's market (Sundays) and the bay. You can see the hills of Balboa Park where the San Diego Zoo is located. Sea World is 15 minutes around the corner. The border is 25 minutes to the south. The lights in Mexico are visible at night from your deck! Walk over to buy fresh fish from Point Loma Seafood, pick up a bottle of wine from The Grape Connections on your way by and stop at the bakery for some dessert or fresh bread for the morning. Or skip all that and enjoy one of HarborTown's 17 beers on tap.

Newly added to this listing are a number of local attractions that we think you will like, along with our reviews. Look right under 'Location' to learn more and click on 'View Guide powered by gogobot' right above Owner Info.

Your cozy apartment with private entrance and private deck includes everything you'll need for making your San Diego vacation a most memorable experience. The kitchenette is newly remodeled and the queen bed is very comfortable. We think you will be most comfortable with two people but please inquire if you have need for a 3rd guest. Parking is excellent.

Your hosts, Toni and Dave, live just above and will be on hand, when needed, to answer any questions and provide recommendations for the many activities and sights San Diego has to offer. When we are home we're pretty quiet so you will hardly know we're here. You're likely to see more of our cat than us! If you want to take it easy and save money, don't rent a car and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. There is a path along the water that is very nice at night. We often walk down there. Overall, we think we have the best value in all of Pt Loma. Please read through our reviews to see what those who visit with us are saying.

*** RECENT UPDATE. As we travel more, we are also open to renting the main part of our home, 2 bedrooms, located above the apartment with the same, great views, plus a private deck and garden area in the back, and more. Please let us know if you are interested, especially if the time you wish to visit shows unavailable. ***

About the Owner

We met on Dave's birthday (which is New Year's Eve) in 2007 and found we both enjoyed traveling, working in our garden, having friends over to our home, and especially being together. In 2010 we became engaged and in 2011 we bought our home in Point Loma. We were happily married in August 2014.

When we first stood on the deck and looked out at the same view you will have, we knew this was the home we wanted. We've spent the first year remodeling and making both our living area and the apartment into a warm, inviting, comfortable place to live and share with the many new VRBO friends who will be coming to vacation with us.

We've traveled to a number of wonderful destinations and we often use VRBO to find a place to stay rather than the sterile confines of a hotel. Everyone we've met has been very gracious and friendly, and that is what you can expect from us.

Toni has retired and is usually available for questions. When we are home we're pretty quiet so you will hardly know we're here. You're likely to see more of our two cats than us!

Just Perfect!

Dave and Toni are great hosts, very welcoming. Their apartment was cozy, very comfortable and had every amenity we needed - very well thought out. On top of that, we were welcomed with a great bottle of wine, pantry items, and other kitchen staples, which made cooking super easy. Great barbecue as well.
The view from the apartment and deck is amazing! It's what initially attracted us to this accomodation, and we weren't disappointed.
We were not familiar with San Diego, but couldn't have picked a better location than Pt. Loma. A lovely area for walking, biking, especially if you like being close to the water, and it's also very accessible to all of the lovely sites and activities in San Diego. It has many restaurants within walking distance.
We have to mention the friendly, helpful attitude of everyone we encountered in San Diego.
Thank you again, Dave and Toni, for helping us out on our arrival.
We definitely would recommend this apartment.

Enjoyed our stay

We echo all the other reviews - it's a great place to stay with a beautiful view of the bay and downtown. It was clean, comfortable and had all the right touches -- they've thought of everything. Very comfortable bed, easy parking and a central location that was great for walking, running and driving to the various beaches, parks and restaurants we visited. Dave and Toni and very friendly, helpful and responsive. We highly recommend.

Owner's Response: Ruth, thanks for the great echo! A lot of people don't know that this area is great for walking and jogging, and that the parking is easy. Glad you pointed that out. Please come back and see us again soon! Dave & Toni

There were a great many things to enjoy about this charming loft with a great view of the downtown skyline and its reflection on the bay. The hosts, who live upstairs in separate quarters, were very gracious and the accommodations were perfect for a couple. Enjoying cocktail hour on the patio with cheese and cracker as you view downtown San Diego's reflection of the sunset is a must, as is morning coffee enjoying the sunrise if you're an early riser. The location is great, less than 10 minutes from downtown San Diego. We recommend a morning walk to Sweetaly Bakery - very reasonable and a great selection of morning delicacies, and we had a fantastic meal at C Level, a great restaurant on the water with more fantastic views of the skyline.

Owner's Response: Judy & Mike,

We're so glad you chose us for your special anniversary vacation. The sunrises have been particularly pretty as of late. Toni likes to watch them and then go back to bed! (don't tell her I wrote that). And of course we think it is pretty special to also see sunsets from the same spot! Thanks for taking time to write! - Dave

Great View, perfect location

  • 5 of 5
We found everything exactly as described including the gorgeous view of the bay and the city. Our hosts could not have been nicer with their warm welcome and genuine concern that everything was what we expected.
This is an ideal place for a couple with the one bedroom and kitchen seating area for two. We felt very safe in this neighborhood as we walked each morning and to dinner most evenings. There are a number of good restaurants within a ten minute walk. The recommendation from Dave and Toni were right on for finding the type of food in the price range that one would expect. We especially enjoyed our walks along the bay on Shelter Island and watching the Navy ships and all of the activity across the bay on Coronado Island.
Yes, we would recommend this rental and we hope to be able to return here in the future.

It was a pleasure having you both visit with us for your winter escape. We're glad you found lots of places close by to eat - they are our favorites as well. Come back and see us again soon!

Cozy and Classy in Point Loma

  • 5 of 5
We had a delightful stay and can only echo all of the positives from the other reviewers. The view of San Diego was superb of course, but we particularly enjoyed being greeted by butterflies and hummingbirds in the morning! It's a quiet, private location but within walking distance of superb seafood and a little farmers market on the weekends. Thanks for one of our best stays in San Diego!

FANTASTIC SPACE for staying in San Diego!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
When we first saw the pictures of this property on the VRBO website, we were immediately drawn by the coziness of the place and its striking views of the San Diego Bay. This place is not too far away from the airport and it's located in a residential area with many options of public transportation, restaurants and shopping. The Dave and Toni were very accommodating and greeted us upon our arrival - there was wine in the fridge and items in the pantry at our disposal. The fire pit area outside is very charming and it's the perfect spot to enjoy drinks and relax from tours in the beautiful city of San Diego. I would highly recommend this place.
