Hello from snowy Canada!
We are a young family (children aged 2 & 5) and we will be staying in San Diego for a month in February to escape our dark northern winter.
In choosing our vacation rental, we could use some help sorting through the various SD neighborhoods - what is family-friendly, walkable, restaurants, playgrounds, parks, coffee shops, etc. We will visit the big sights some days, we will have a car for that, but mostly we'd just like to live as a local family would, with trips to the beach and farmer's markets and walk around with our kids. So location is very important to us.
Particularly interested in being near a beach for sand play and walks. Oh and coffee shops. :)
Our budget is under $200/night or under $5000/month.
We found this rental on VRBO at Mission Bay ("Sail Bay" - do people swim in these bays?? How is the beach there?)
Could someone advise on the neighborhood around there? Will we be able to walk or will we mostly have to drive to restaurants, groceries, etc.?
Thanks in advance for your tips!
