With out a doubt, the best thing about the house is the view of the Pacific Ocean. The house is OK, the yard is nice, the 8 ft SPA is fun for the kids, but the thing that sets the house apart is the view.
Sometimes, the airplanes can be very annoying. It depends a bit upon how may carriers are in port at North Island Naval Airbase, but trying to listen to the TV news, while a squadron is landing can be quite annoying.
Family renunions and variations on that theme. Three and four generations...
Noise... does not work. The house can take it, but the neighborhood will not. It is a residential neighborhood, and my neighbors deserve peace and quiet. If you want to have a wild party, you are better off in Mission Beach or Pacific Beach (no one there will notice). Furthermore, there is a "noise ordinance" in the City of Coronado. My neighbors have only called me once since we started renting the house, telling me that "Something is going on, that you should know about." When I arrived at the house, it seemed like there were over 150 people on the property. The people were spilling out the doors, down the stairs, out the walk, and on to the sidewalk. It was impossible to walk past the house on the sidewalk. Screaming children (was anyone watching their kids?) ... It was very, very embarrassing for me. I had to apologize to my neighbors, face to face. I promised that this would not happen again.
DINKs (Duel Income, No kids) do not do well at the house. Any couple that routinely upgrades their accommodations at the Hyatt to the “concierge” level probably will not be happy at our house. It is a beach house, not the Taj Mahal
After we have made contact and you are sure the dates you are interested in are available (and you know the rate), we will ask you to send a 50% deposit, via regular US mail, payable to "Tom Moran",
to Tom Moran, 150 Alder Street, Coronado, CA 92118, USA. Sorry, we can not take credit cards. In the letter please include this info:
the first and last name the booking was made under, your mailing address, your email address (if you have one),
your phone number, and your arrival date.
The best way: email me with the dates you are interested in. I will email you back within 24 hours (usually within 8 hours). You could call 1-619-435-4857 (but sometimes the resulting "phone tag" is tedious.)
"Suggestion: The cell phone service is bad in the area. May I suggest that you warn your renters and suggest they bring phone cards." Editor's note: for years I have believed that the cell phone receoption is awful here in Coronado. I alwasys blame the Navy (although this may have been a business decision that Cingular/ATT, Nextel and Sprint made in therms of providing coverage). Anyway the cell phone service depending on your carrier and the quality of your cell phone is generally poor. If you bring a phone card, this will insure that if you need a clear, uninterrupted long distance phone call... that you can get it.
No. The rocks end one house away. so, direct access to the beach is only a few steps away (without crawling over the rocks).
There are a couple of independent "references" for statements like that. The most commonly quoted is "The Travel Channel." The Travel Channel has done a series of specials... mostly "The 10 Best..." or The 10 Most..." For example they have done "The 10 Most romantic places in the world" and "100 things you must do before you die"... and stuff like that. They did a special on "The Ten Best Beaches in the United States" and Coronado was ranked number 6. They also did a special on "The 10 Best Beaches in Southern California" and Coronado was ranked #1. On August 1, 2003 The travel Channel did a special on "The 10 Best Get Away Beaches" and Coronado was ranked number 4.
In 2002, The Travel Channel name Coronado "The Best Family Beach in America."
Also National Geographic published a special edition magazine on Beaches of the World. There were many catagories. Coronado Beach was listed as one of the four ( in no particular order) best "Walking Beaches" in the World. I am not exactly sure what criteria they used. For that matter, Iam not sure what criteria "The TravelChannel" used for their raking either.
You can cancel with a full refund up until 60 days prior to the first day of the "tenancy." The cancellation policy is listed as "Item #12" in the Rental Agreement
"(12) This agreement and the tenancy hereby granted may be terminated at any time by either party hereto by giving to the other party not less than 60 days notice in writing, prior to the first day of tenancy (as noted above). Deposit is non-refundable after passing the 60 day limit, but time may be sublet or changed with Tom and Rosann Moran's written agreement. Any moneys beyond what the original agreed upon rent, shall be refunded to the lessee."
There is a six foot brick privacy fence that encloses the yard and the SPA. Children and anyone else can play within the yard.
Absolutely. When I get within two weeks of a vacancy, I start to sweat.... make me as offer.... I will probably accept it.
