Sunset Spectacular at Spanish Retreat

Real Estate Agent with Big Block Realty 858.232.8722 CA BRE# 01261476

One of the main reasons we bought our latest home was the Mission Bay views and the ocean views when the marine layer cooperates. What we didn't anticipate were the spectacular sunsets that literally stop us in our tracks and lure us out onto our second floor balcony most every evening to enjoy the show.

We feel blessed to sit with a glass of wine and just take it in. Often this delays dinner getting started and can occasionally interrupt me working at my desk for a few minutes.

But I shared with my bride when we bought it, "Don't ever let me go a day without taking in the water views and I'm required to peep at least two sunsets per week." And so far, so good!

You too can enjoy these sunsets from our very balcony,

because luckily, this house serves as a San Diego Vacation Rental

and is centrally located to all San Diego's biggest attractions!

These are lovely views,  and like you not a day goes by, without us noticing the ocean, the sunset or the sunrise.  A
