We rented both levels of the duplex for my mother's 75th birthday party. There were 16 guests, from as far away as Oregon and Illinois and as close as Palm Springs, ages 14 to 78. This house was everything promised, with plenty of room for everyone. We spent most of the time sitting out on the lower patio., So close to the bay, my mother took her chair out on the grass strip and just sat out there enjoying the sun, while having the house right behind her if she needed anything. It was peaceful and quiet but still lots of activity. We hung her birthday banner from the balcony and dozens of passer-bys would call out "happy birthday Beverly!" If she wasn't sitting outside, there was usually one or two of us out there, and the people would then say "tell Beverly happy birthday" Everyone was so friendly, the house was so clean and all as advertised. Parking? eh. No doubt it wasn't the best, but even that gave us something to laugh about each evening.
As we left, everyone agreed it was the best possible vacation and we want to come back again next year!
Would you recommend this vacation rental to a friend?

Excellent location for a family reunion
Left on 10/11/2012 for a stay in September 2012 | Susan
The Bayfront property was a wonderful spot for my siblings and parents to gather for a family reunion. With six couples, the two condominiums provided excellent sleeping arrangements. The two kitchens met our cooking needs.
We loved the personalized service we received from the towel supply truck driver - he escorted five women to Trader Joe's so we could grocery shop! That went above and beyond the call of duty.
We really enjoyed being on the bay side of the peninsula. The sunrises were beautiful (and since most of our party was from the East Coast, they were awake to enjoy them) and it is much quieter than the ocean front. The beach in front of the units is a great place to relax and catch up with a relative or good book.
The only drawback to the property is the alley-way parking. It is extremely narrow. Unfortunately, my brother-in-law damaged his rental car backing out. He had rented a minivan. Perhaps if he had a subcompact car it would not have been a problem.
We will definitely consider this for a future family reunion.
Left on 07/28/2012 for a stay in July 2012 | 50th Anniversary Celebration
We took 15 family members to this property to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. They ranged in age from 9 to 74. Renting both properties gave us lots of room for the families. It was clean, well equiped and close to many activities. On the Mission Bay side it was quiet and peaceful and yet the kids took boogie boards and walked two blocks to the ocean. Many of us went to the zoo, Sea World, Belmont Park and Coronado. The only problem was parking 4 large cars on the property. We parked 3 and parked the 4th car off site. We had a wonderful time!
