“Nice property, but don't recommend the Bonaire`s studio”
This property is nice with a hot tub, BBQ, yard that overlooks the Ocean and setting sun. The only thing is we realized the Ocean Beach area is a little bit more dumpy, gritty, trashy, frat boy, and grimy than we realized it would be. A little bit like Venice Beach in LA, but with a more San Diego vibe (so less artsy and culturally rich). We went at a quiet time so it wasn't too bad but if you go at a busy time you may get neighbors who would make the shared space much less enjoyable. I also do not recommend that Bonaire`s studio. Though the space is nice, beautiful appliances in the bathroom/kitchen, the bed is right up against a surprisingly busy alley with non-stop yelling, trucks, and chaos day and night. Not restful or peaceful AT ALL. Our little dog was on constant alert and there was a steady stream of cigarette smoke wafting through the tiny studio. The property also does not have any of the amenities they promise. We asked for an umbrella since this was listed as present and available for use and the property manager said they might drop one by but never did. Nothing else that they list was available (chairs, etc) even on days when there were few other renters (so we knew it wasn't that everything was simply already in use). With the lack of responsiveness I would be nervous what they'd do if we reported a bigger issue. Could be a vacation ruiner to have management who cares so little about your experience once you've arrived.
Response from the manager I'm sorry to hear that your stay wasn't ideal. The comfort and quality of our rental properties is important to us so we'll be sure to follow up on any concerns to improve the unit for the next guests. All amenities listed are shared among the other units. All of our properties are Non-Smoking, and had we known there was smoke coming into the unit we would have dealt with it right away. Have a wonderful day and thank you for your review. -The NVR Team
“Perfect Place to Stay!”
After looking up hotels in the San Diego are I realized it was going to be a pricey trip so I started searching for rentals. My boyfriend and I stayed in the Bonaire studio for about 5 days. Don't be turned away by the studio; there is plenty of room and a full kitchen. Looking at pictures provided made it seem too good to be true. There are a few other apartments connected to the building but we barely saw anyone while we were there. You have an awesome ocean view, big back yard (which no one has in this area) and I believe it was the best location in San Diego. We cruised all the way up to Oceanside Beach and down to Imperial. I think this location was perfect. You can walk to the 'downtown' area of Ocean Beach, see Sunset Cliffs, and Gaslamp District is not far away. The inside was adorable, clean, and made you feel right at home. Please consider staying here; the prices, views, and location cannot be beat!
“Quick SD Getaway”
Nice, small studio apartment. Perfect for a quick getaway near the beach. Be warned that all of the amenities are shared with multiple other units, so you do not have the fire pit, patio furniture or hot tub to yourself. Great location, but this studio is on an alley that people do walk/drive through frequently. Only 10 blocks from Newport Street in Ocean Beach.
“Best deal on Ocean Beach!”
The place was perfect for our little family of 3. The place was extremely clean and had enough room for everyone. Having a kitchen and access to laundry was a nice benefit. For the price, we couldn't have asked for more.
By far the cleanest rental I have ever stayed in. Everything in the rental from sheets and towels, kitchen equipment to the tables and chairs was clean and good quality. Nothing in the place felt cheap or like the owners were attempting to cut corners. The place felt loved and respected by it's owners. This kind of experience is rare for an affordable rental. I would suggestion the addition of a rug. Having a dog with me, I so appreciated the tile floors but a rug in the middle of the room (in the studio) would have made the room a bit more comfortable. Also, the people staying above us had a dog and we could hear every step the dog made. Not a big deal but also something a rug could easy solve. The front yard was fabulous. A firepit, a hot tub and an ocean view, it was exactly as the pictures showed. I do want to let the owners know that the patio chairs in the yard are due for a change. Many of them were split from sun/salt damage. Thank you for a wonderful four days.
“The guests above us (we stayed in Bonaire) were terribly loud ev”
Although the location was right next to the ocean(making for a beautiful view in the evening) we still had to drive to get to an appropriate beachfront. We enjoyed mission beach the most, which was not too far of a drive. Unfortunately the guests in the room above us were very rude and very loud. Every morning at 6am it sounded like they were stomping around and sliding furniture back and forth and back and forth. This went on for no less than 2 hours. We also were woken up by the garage that was right next to our room frequently. I would never stay in Bonaire again. I liked the most that the rental was walking distance to all of the restaurants.
“Best "Me" Vacation”
When I got there I was very lost so I called the after hours number to find out how to get to the studio. I left a message and waited for a call back "right away". No one ever called back. I was lucky enough to find some late night partiers that knew where I needed to go. They pointed the way and I finally arrived. Once I got there it was smooth sailing. The place was exactly as described and with the exception of the door to the courtyard banging when people went in and out (you could hear it through the wall), everything was wonderful. I will definitely stay again!
We had a great time at Bonaire. It was very cozy, clean and fully stocked. The jacuzzi tub was a great addition. It was a perfect place for my husband and I and our dog Laila. It was a perfect location as well. Close to the beach, the dog beach, great cafes and a short drive to downtown San Diego. We will definately be back.
“Great space and ammenities”
The home was great, the kitchen served all my needs and some of the amenities really made it a great place. I rented a small studio, and small is a bit of an understatement, but it was just for me and the photos on the website were honest and clear about the size. The whole place was cozy, and the hot tub was great. Also- onsite laundry: awesome! There were some nitpicks: I wasn't renting a car there (just taking the bus and using Car2Go) and they provided three awesome cruiser bikes to get around the beach. The problem is that these bikes do not appear to be maintained and the handlebar hinges on two of them were lose and came undone, which is a safety issue. Nancy's, you might want to throw in a few helmets as well. Paper towels were provided, but it looked like someone had spilled coffee on them. The OB locations are also situated a little far from the action... but it's not too bad.
The studio has everything you need,well equipped and very nicely decorated. The patio is just perfect for sitting there and listening to the ocean and the location is just great!You dont even need a car. I will come back.
