Property Details

Updated: Oct 28, 2014
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!

Everything We Were Looking For...and more

  • 5 of 5
We wanted to rest and relax and get a taste of San Diego without expending too much effort. We were in the perfect apartment and neighborhood to do that. We could sit in the overstuffed chair looking out on the boat traffic on the bay through the French doors, or step outside onto the deck and settle on the lounge with a cozy fire in the little fireplace and watch the San Diego skyline light up at night. The apartment decor is attractive, the queen bed comfortable, the kitchen well equipped. The hosts are always available when needed. My husband and I both valued the sessions with their recommended massage therapist who came to the apartment! Point Loma offers good places to eat and some interesting attractions. We ventured out to enjoy Coronado, Balboa Park and Old Town. We will be back.

Owner's Response: Sheila & Geoff, it was a pleasure to meet both of you and provide the respite you were seeking. Toni enjoyed telling the story of offering you a welcoming champagne and how quickly Geoff went to fetch two glasses! Bets wishes for your healthy recovery and to your next visit with us.

Great location, awesome view, comfortable stay. The outdoor space is amazing - nice spot to relax and watch the sun go down. The owners have thought of everything for a perfect getaway. Walking distance to several great cafés, bars, restaurants. Location is convenient to highway and easy access to parks, beaches, etc. Would definitely stay again.

fantastic view, and very pleasant owners

A 2 million dollar view and patio at a bargain rate! This very cute place is San Diego through and through. The owners were delightful and accommodating with the arrangements. Met all of our needs, and then some, for our trip.

Owner's Response: Jill, thanks for taking time to share your experience. The view is what people comment on more than anything. After 3+ years of living there we never tire of it. It's always changing. Right now we are getting great sunset reflections off the downtown buildings. We hope you'll come back so we get to meet you in person! - Dave & Toni

Great Location, View, Price, what more could you want!

  • 5 of 5
We used VBRO many times in the past and this is the first time I have felt I could give a place five stars. The patio is the perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine or just sit and enjoy the view as day turns to night and the lights of the city appear. The location is great, walking distance to Shelter Island, many restaurants and markets. On Dave's recommendation, we took in a show at Humphrey's By the Bay, while we didn't see Ringo Starr, we enjoyed the concert, the venue was great and it was lovely sitting outside under the stars on a warm evening. We will certainly stay again when visiting San Diego.

Owner's Response: Pam, thank you for the great review! We only regret we weren't here to meet you which means you have to come back soon so we can share stories and a bottle of wine together. We look forward to that time. Dave & Toni

Amazing experience

  • 5 of 5
We could not have picked a better place to stay! We decided to do a last minute road trip to San Diego for a couple of days, and I'm so glad we didn't stay in a hotel. This is a memory we will always have! We made a fire in the pit on the balcony while looking at the lights of downtown. Thank you so much for your accommodations! I already have friends I'm referring to stay here.

Owner's Response: Cailey & Chad, Toni & I are also glad you chose to stay with us. We just think VRBO is such a better choice than a hotel. You get a certain ambiance, more space, personal attention, extra amenities like the deck, and nice hosts! Plus no more expensive and often less. Thanks for the referrals and please tell your friends to say you recommended them and we'll give them a welcome surprise. Dave & Toni

Beautiful location, comfortable living

  • 5 of 5
Our visit to San Diego was absolutely wonderful, in large part to staying at Dave and Toni's home. They made us feel so welcome, it was like visiting friends. Not to mention their home is gorgeous and the porch was exceptional. We spent a significant amount of time enjoying the view and loved it. There were three of us, but that was not a problem even though it's a one bedroom. Plenty of room, and with a fridge and kitchenette, we were able to relax with some coffee and breakfast of our own, instead of having to eat each meal out. Also a huge plus - the parking: very little in San Diego areas and having street parking for free made it a huge asset.

Great stay, amazing hosts, and beautiful location. Definitely will be staying here again on another trip out to San Diego!

Owner's Response: Alison, Maggie, & Alison,
It was a delight to have you visit us for your summer getaway vacation. Toni and I enjoyed getting to know you and hearing about all the fun you were having at the bay, ocean, Coronado, downtown, La Jolla, and elsewhere. We will recommend the bike rentals at Balboa Park to others. Thanks for the kind review and we hope to see you and your friends again the next time you come to San Diego.
