Better Homes & Gardens Beach house


Property Details

Updated: Apr 25, 2016
House, 2 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, 6 Sleeps

This elegant and relaxed home located across from the world famous Coronado Silver Strand Beach boasts 3000' sq.ft. of fountains, hardwoods, french doors and windows, with a lush tropical landscaping in a relaxed beach setting. Think Tommy Bahama.....

The home is located between the ocean on one side, and the bay on the other. Both bodies of water are literally several minutes walk away.

You know you've arrived at #1 The Inlet the moment you go through the black arched gate into the courtyard, filled with benches and fountains. You can see the water splashing in the sun, and hear the soothing sound it makes. As you approach the glass front entry door, you can't help but notice the bright open floorplan with all rooms being surrounded by french doors or windows that open to the ivy covered walled, tropical courtyard in the back of the house.

The fully stocked designer eat-in kitchen is completely outfitted with a SubZero fridge, Jennair appliances, and granite counter tops. It has everything you'll need to feel at home while you're visiting. All dishware, glassware, 2 coffee makers and just about every other appliances you might need is here, plus a partially stocked pantry.

Adjacent to the kitchen is the white, wood clad cozy den with a fireplace, surround sound stereo system that operates through the entire home, and a 60" Pioneer plasma TV and french doors that open out to an outdoor fireplace. The entire home is high speed wireless, as well as offering streaming Pandora and Netflix, with our compliments.

The living room is large, with overstuffed leather furniture, fireplace, wetbar, and cozy sittting areas. The dining room easily can seat 8-10.

Throw open the french doors and step into the rear yard to enjoy the waterfall jacuzzi, or one of the sitting areas with outdoor heaters and upholstered deep seat loungers, nestled under rows of 30' palm trees.

The outdoor kitchen features granite clad counters, a built in BBQ and sink, and is right off the kitchen making it very convenient for entertaining.The entire yard is surrounded by 9' high walls and is completely private, lush, and tropical. Just back from the beach? Use the outdoor shower. We provide everything you may need for the beach~from boogie boards, to chairs, to towels, umbrellas, and coolers. We also have 2 beachcruiser bicycles, and a kayak for your use. Yes, we have life-vests.

Upstairs you"ll find two master suites, both with their own baths. The ensuite bath has a large jacuzzi tub as well as shower. Both rooms have views of the boat waterways and one of the bedrooms has a large fireplace and private patio with a hammock and a peak-a-boo ocean view. For the kids downstairs, we have 2 aero twin beds as well as 1 aero queen bed. It's located downstairs from the two mastersuites and has it's own bathroom close by.

We are in a tranquil, guard gated marina community where the greenbelts, parks and boat channels meander through the community. Hop on a bike, drive or walk on the paved pedestrian trail (3.5 miles) into the vilage. We have many great restaurants, over 60 actually, 17 hotels including 3 world class resorts, great golf on the island, bars, and wonderful shopping. Have a sunset drink at the world famous Hotel Del Coronado or rent a jetski or sailboat from Loews Hotel and tour the bay. Loews also has a Gondola, for romantic evenings. Pull into "The Landing" boat docks, at the base of the Coronado bridge, and try some of our restaurants there, or hop on the Harbor Hopper for the 5 minute boat ride into downtown San Diego's famous Gaslamp District. Be a local...kick back and enjoy!

Enjoy walking on the beach each day, or stop at Loews for coffee, a morning tradition. Play tennis around the corner from the house, or use our village's pool exclusively for residents.

Housekeeping services, as well as a personal chef can be arranged. This executive home has never before been offered for a vacation rental, and we're excited to share our wonderful house. We are pet friendly however there is absolutely no smoking. Take your dogs to "Yappy Hour" near the tennis courts, every morning and afternoon. You'll both love it.

We have carefully created a comfortable enviroment to help you make your holiday a memorable 5 star experience.We are close by and will handle all aspects of the rental personally to insure a hassle free vacation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time. House was fabulous. We had everything we needed. We loved the Coronado Cays neighborhood. The master suite was perfect. We kept the doors open all week and sat out outside in AM and evening. Your backyard was a great place to gather at night for drinks and jacuzzi. Joe, Jean, Nick and I were in there all week. Kitchen had everything we needed and we spent a great deal of time hanging in the TV room and kitchen.

Kids LOVED the entertainment system you had set up..with the music piped throughout the house and netflix.

We used the kayak and paddled over to the bay beach..that was fun. Biked every day. Kids loved that. We had a family cook out with my brother and sister in law and niece and aunt. They couldnt believe we were staying there. They enjoyed as well.

We rented a boat which was great fun. Went down to the Del for an afternoon. Went to concert on Sunday evening. So we made good use of our vacation and all that Coronado had to offer.

Thanks for being so responsive to the bathroom issue. We couldnt have asked for more than what you did. You made things so easy for us. Thanks for showing us around. That was very helpful. Everything was exactly how you said it would be.

We told all our friends what a great house we rented. We definitely want to come back. Thanks for everything Ed!!

Perfect vacation in a perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have been more happy with the property at Coronado Cays. We stayed for one week over 4th of July with family and a one and a half year old. The house had everything we needed to enjoy our stay: kayaks, beach chairs, bicycles, even a cooler on wheels. The house was fully stocked with all the cooking supplies needed and the outdoor grill got a lot of use. The hot tub was wonderful, even in July the nights get a little chilly and it was the perfect place to unwind at the end of the day. The beds were extremely comfortable, and ample space in all the bathrooms. The TV was set up with everything we needed, but we didn't use it much because we spent most of our time outside. The property is about 5 miles from downtown coronado. This was a perfect morning run to get coffee or a short skateboard or bike ride. The only consideration would be that you need a rental car if you don't want to use public bus system. Although this property was not right downtown, we enjoyed the quiet of the Cays including the sailboats, bay, and silver strand beach. We were able to rent a sailboat from Lowes, but there is an unlimited amount of activities to enjoy there including paddle-boards, surfboards, a power boat. It is also a great place to get a cocktail in the evenings. Ed and Kat were the perfect hosts, and were available all week by phone for any of our concerns. They have lived there for many years and were great tour guides, pointing us to all the best spots and the best way to navigate Coronado on the 4th of July. They clearly cared that we had a great overall experience and did their best to make us feel at home.

Perfect Beach Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Ed & Kat greeted us when we arrived and welcomed us into their home for the week. They gave us a tour, went over all the important things, and made us feel extremely welcomed and comfortable. They had even left us a gift basket with some wine and snacks…including snacks for our 2 pups that we brought with us! They were easy to reach when we had a question here and there and were so nice!

The house was even more beautiful than we imagined, the pictures don’t do the place justice. It was the quintessential beach retreat and we were thrilled to be staying there for the week!! It was private, cozy, relaxing, and just perfect. Everything you can imagine was provided to just move in and feel right at home.

We had planned to visit so much of San Diego during our time there but we only left Coronado once. The place was so relaxing that we never wanted to venture out! It really and truly was the rest and relaxation we were looking for in our vacation away from our hectic jobs.

The beach was just a quick walk and was amazing to see every day. The silver strand is beautiful, and since we went in October, it was virtually empty. We took the pups to the beach 2 times a day and let them run and chase birds. They had so much fun, and we had even more fun watching them. One of the best things we liked about the location was the “Yappy Hour” twice a day. There is a park just a quick walk away and everyone from the neighborhood brings their dogs to run and play. Everyone was so nice and friendly!! This was the highlight of our dog’s vacation and they had so much fun.

Our stay was truly idyllic and Ed and Kat are extremely generous for sharing their amazing home. We travel a lot, and no doubt they have created one of the most beautiful, relaxing spaces we have been to.

Thank you Ed and Kat…you were such gracious hosts and we can’t wait to come back and stay again!!

Activity and Interests

Coronado is consistently rated one of the top beaches in the world. And if the renowned beaches aren't enough, go to the other side of the island and explore the "Big Bay". Coronado has something for everyone. It's close to nightlife in the downtown's Gaslamp District, the Zoo, Sea World, LegoLand, Balboa Park, La Jolla, Del Mar. Disneyland, Universal Studios, and Knotts Berry Farm, are only a heartbeat away. The international airport is 15 minutes away, the international border is 20 minutes away and the mountains and deserts are less than 60 minutes away. Downtown San Diego, a mere 2.2 mile drive over one of the worlds most distinctive bridges feels like a world away. Coronado is a vibrant beach community that is home to the Hotel Del Coronado, the crowning glory of the Island. The Del, a legendary resort built in 1888 still is the host for celebrities from all over the world

Coronado offers a wide assortment of activities such as Hotel Del Coronado, Restaurants, Beach Activities, Tennis, Shopping, Sightseeing, Kayaking, Surfing, Sailing, Boating, Waterskiing, Jet Skiing, Biking, Fishing and several spas.

In addition to the above, Coronado offers:

* The Coronado City Park which features Art in the Park and Sunday concerts.

* Two theaters: the Coronado Playhouse and the Lambs Players Theater.

* A 72-par, 130 acre golf course offering scenic views of San Diego Bay, Glorietta Bay, and the San Diego skyline.

* Brand New, State-of-the-Art community center with 2 pools, full gym, fully-equipped fitness center, showers and lockers. ()

* An award-winning Dog Beach.
