Glamping at the Paradise Point in San Diego


March 30, 2011 by admin

I love the outdoors but I prefer to be somewhere near civilization at the very same time.  It’s not that I’m a diva or anything, but when I’m away from my own home I do like comfortable beds, big bathtubs and fancy toiletries.  So when I heard about Paradise Point in San Diego I was stoked for a place on the beach where the guys could hang out, learn to cook marshmallows and I wouldn’t have to sleep in a sleeping bag.  We had a fantastic time!  The guys loved the beach and we had our first cookout right outside our beach bungalow.

We liked the hotdogs, but the s’mores were the best.

The kids loved the ducks that would visit us each morning

I loved how we could have an outdoor-sy like holiday experience but I did not feel like I was in the wild for an extended period of time.  The resort was gorgeous with beautiful gardens, fantastic pools and little fire-pits around the pools that they had lit at night.  And though our stay was nearly perfect, there are just a couple things you need to know about this resort if you’re planning on visiting.  The first was the nemesis I made.  We met at the outdoor restaurant.

He watched my family with his beady eyes and tried to get my food.

His beak was so sharp, and he was so persistent about stalking his prey that he freaked me out.  Fortunately we parted without incident but I am not a big fan of birds, especially ones who stalk me during lunch when I’m eating delicious food.  The second thing is a diva-esque picky but very important detail for places that call themselves luxury resorts.  Soft, two-ply toilet paper.  It could be a deal-breaker. And that’s all I’m going to say.

    Did you notice the sharp-beaked bird has only one leg?
    No wonder it was so persistent

      I wish that was the case, but it’s tucked up I think so he can get prime diving at our food. He definitely had two when he walked around. That was one crazy bird:)
