“Can't get closer to the beach than this!”
Reviewed 25 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

My husband and I brought our parents out to San Diego for a long weekend to visit our son at college. We chose the Rockaway because of its location, as well as the fact that all bedrooms were on one level (our parents were not excited about a lot of stairs for an entire weekend). Everyone I worked with at Bluewater, from start to finish, was friendly and knowledgeable, even offering to help with restaurants for dinner. The weather was not great, so we did not spend much time out on the balconies, which was too bad, because the balconies, especially the front one, had great views. You have a front row seat to every sunset! The condo worked very well for us. It was clean and well equipped with the items we needed. The bedrooms were neat (one was a bit small, but it worked) and the beds were very comfortable, so much so that my husband now wants to buy the same mattress for our home! The master has a wonderful view of the ocean. From every bedroom, you can hear the ocean waves, which is a wonderful way to fall asleep! The bathrooms, especially the sinks and showers, must have recently been updated, as the showers were very clean, which is not always the case in a rental. The towels were wonderfully soft and white. It seems the whole place had a fresh coat of paint. Our minivan fit in the garage, but it was tight and there would not be room for a second car if you have a minivan. A few of the cons would be that the entire condo has vertical blinds, which are a bit dusty and hard to open and close. The master bedroom blinds did not close all the way after the second day. We called and someone came to try to fix them, but they could not be fixed. Good thing the window faces the sunset and not the sunrise! For some reason, the frig made a chirping sound only in the evening. We had no idea why. There are quite a few unnecessary items in the closets and kitchen cabinets that should just be cleaned out. Many of the metal surfaces (windows, closet doors, fans) were rusty because of the constant ocean humidity. Finally, it would be great to get rid of the febreeze smell that is pretty prevalent when you first walk in the door. These are small things that could be dealt with easily but they are certainly not deal breakers. The location was great for walks as well as car trips around the area. We really enjoyed our stay at the Rockway and would recommend it to others.
