“What a great rental!”

My wife and I recently spent just over a week at this property and loved every aspect of it. We did not want to leave! It is in what we would consider the perfect location. It is directly located at the beach with an amazing view to enjoy, while also being close enough to walk or ride the provided bikes to the nearby restaurants, or a short car ride to the downtown area.

The unit itself is very comfortable and is true to the pictures provided. Everything that could be needed to enjoy your stay is provided. The fact that there is a garage included is also great to not have to worry about any parking issues. We also enjoyed the added benefit of use of the pool at a nearby property.

We definitely loved this property and it is in the perfect location of such a great area. We hope to return soon!

“Highly recommend!”

We arrived early and they were able to accommodate us. Great view! Grateful there was a parking spot in the garage. Great deck, friendly owners, met Slo-Mo, which was a real treat. We accidently came upon a farmers market (on a Tuesday) not too far away and had awesome food while there. All the appliances worked and were of good quality. Everything was clean and comfortable. Loved the easy access to the beach. The absolute only detriment was that we arrived in the middle of a heat wave and fires in the area. Would love to come back.

We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay at "The Hidden Jewel". So sorry about the May heat wave and the fires in San Diego. It was very unusual for this time of year. Unfortunately, we can't control Mother nature!!
Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. It is greatly appreciated. We hope to see you again in the future.

We had a wonderful time. Spent at least some part of everyday on the beach. Only about 15 min to the Zoo and Sea World. Took about 40 min to Legoland. We rented bikes for our 3 children and rode on the boardwalk. Nice neighborhood. We felt right at home. We could have stayed longer than a week. Can't say enough about the great memories made!!

Kathy,
Thanks for taking the time to write your great review!
Jim and I are so glad that you had such a good time at "The Jewel"!
As far as the small TV in the bedroom, we switched from Time Warner to AT & T at the beginning of the year. Our guest prior never used the small TV. We have discovered that AT & T never connected that TV to the cable. It is now resolved.
We apologize for any inconvenience it may have caused.
We look forward to seeing you soon!

“Perfect Labor Day Getaway With the Family”
Reviewed 3 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

people found this review helpful

We stayed with our two boys (3 and 5). The property is perfect for young children because of the bedroom with a bunkbed and the location to the local activities. It is a 30 second walk to the beach and a 3 minute walk to mission bay. Additionally, it is close to many restaurants and the fun zone (with many activities for children). We parked our car in the garage and did not have to leave to drive anywhere during our entire stay.

The property is also great for people watching and enjoying the scenery with spectacular views of Pacific Beach and the beach's boardwalk. Pacific Beach is a wonderful beach that does not get too crowded.

Our boys were so sad when they had to leave their "beach house" and continue to talk about the great time that they had.

“Great Condo and amenities”
Reviewed 17 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Stayed in "the hidden jewel" from August 10-17 with wife and kid. Plenty of room for 3-4 with great views of the boardwalk and beach. Excellent location in north PB, our favorite area, near restaurants and shops and action on the beach. This condo has great view and amenities including beach cruisers, sand toys, beach chairs, umbrellas, wake boards, surf boards, full kitchen with everything you need, washer and dryer and a pass to use the fantastic pool across the street at the Catamaran resort. Plenty to do in this area, also included a garage for easy parking. The owners, Jim and Debbie were super nice and even had one of the bikes repaired when it got a flat tire so we didn't miss a morning ride. Definitely will come back for another vacation. The only negative was a really weak wi-fi signal in the condo.

We were in the process of converting from Time Warner to a better quality cable/internet carrier. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience. We recognize how important staying connected is!!
Our IT expert is coming on Monday to ensure that the Wi-Fi signal will not be a problem again.
Thanks for your feedback and we look forward to seeing you again!
