Right from booking the Airbnb, everyone involved in the booking process promptly got in touch with me to ensure all formalities and documentation were in order. Additionally, upon arriving at the Penny Realty office to get the keys, the front desk worker was very friendly and even gave us a few tips on good venues (bars, restaurants, etc.) to check out during our stay.

Lastly, the house was great and all the amenities we needed were provided. This was a great place to stay, and the hosting company made the stay even better.

I'd go probably 4.5 out of 5 stars, but I'll got the extra half, rather than just call this place Good. Location: Great location. Right on the boardwalk/strand. Yet set back JUST enough so that people aren't like within arms reach of you as they walk down the boardwalk. Liquor store about 5 minutes away with most supplies you'd need, they cater well to short term renters emergency needs for almost everything. Beach is very clean, cleaned every morning by the city. Surf is actually surfable some parts of some days. Property: New appliances, washer/dryer seem brand new, kitchen everything good, including electric stove top is nice, oven is nice (reset breaker if the controls are frozen), we used 'em all. Comes with good enough coffee maker. Utensils, plates, coffee cups, filters, pepper/salt, we didn't really have to buy much if anything. Grill used quite a bit, but clean and works fine, uses propane line from house, so you can grill as long as you want. Front beach glass doors are super cool and open up to make practically the whole wall open to the apartment main living room. AWESOME. Master bedroom open to the beach, you sleep to crashing waves sound. Bathrooms very clean. Tile floor very durable nice, easy to sweep of sand and keep clean. TV's work, DishTV or some similar service, works in main room, master bedroom and rear bedroom, have not tried the others. Fireplace works fine. The sound bar is rusted out and too bad it would not work. BRING YOUR OWN WIRELESS SPEAKER thing for your chill moments. We forgot to bring ours and regretted it. Everyone has some tunes around here they carry around. You won't need the A/C so I don't even know if it works, we didn't touch the stats. Now for a couple downsides. Pacific Beach and Mission Beach are a bit on the ratchet side. This is not a gated community in Malibu here. We had one drunk European walk off the beach into our living room and try to buy a bathroom pass. We dispatched with him quickly. Then a homeless guy on the boardwalk this morning was having a psychotic episode and was screaming at me and my daughter with evil intent. We finally had to retreat inside and he went on to rant and rave at other people on their lanai, threatening to come inside their place. We called the cops, who finally showed up 15 minutes later. Sort of par for the course here. 99.9% of the people are kind locals and tourists and as nice as can be. Just understand, this is more like Venice Beach here!

Decided to come to San Diego last minute for the holiday weekend. We got so lucky to find this place and it was just perfect. Brand new everything and just renovated this house had everything we could have asked for. It was spotless inside and very comfortable. Beach chairs, a wagon, towels the owners really have thought of everything. The walk to the beach was easy and close and the house is adjacent to great restaurants, super markets and anything you need. This is a great house and we will definitely be back for sure!!! Thank you Jeff from Penny Realty and to the owners we had a great visit.

My wife and I had never been to San Diego, so we were looking for somewhere to stay that would provide a great central location to visit the numerous sites we wanted to see. Bobby Ds place turned out to be the perfect location. This place is only about a 20 minute drive from the San Diego Airport and downtown San Diego. Extremely close to San Diego Zoo, Sea World, Balboa Park, Petco Park, Little Italy, the Gaslight District, USS Midway Museum, Seaport Village, Old Town, Coronado Bridge and Beach and the Hotel Del Coronado, Point Loma, Belmont Park and Boat and Whale cruises. Also just about 2 hours away from Los Angeles, as we drove to Universal Studios and Dodger stadium one day. Twenty minute drive to Torrey Pines, La Jolla Cove, and the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. The house has all new furniture, Kitchen, etc. and 3 spacious bedrooms. Nice Living room and dining room area and big TV. Kitchen had everything you need to cook in if that is what you want to do. Big outdoor grill also on site. Washer and Dryer to wash clothes if needed. There is a 7/11, liquor store and numerous restaurants and bars right around the corner. There is early morning coffee and breakfast type stores, a nice Seafood restaurant and a bar/ restaurant that includes a lot of Philadelphia food items. (Cheese Steaks and soft pretzels). It is a short distance to the beach and a major surfing area. Great sunset views here. We would highly recommend Bobby Ds to anyone who is looking for a great place to stay in the San Diego area.
