SPACIOUS & NEWLY RENOVATED: STEPS TO BEACH, WITH LARGE DECK AND ENCLOSED YARD

San Diego House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, Accommodates Max of 6, including children/iinfants

Casa Grande of Casitas del Mar is steps to beach (2 min walk around corner): perfect getaway for couples wanting extra space, small families needing separate rooms for children and nannies.

Walking distance to restaurants and entertainment. Miles of beach and bay to ride bikes or run.

Casa Grande, downstairs, accommodates a maximum of 6 people with 3 bedrooms, 2 baths. The 500 sq. ft. deck off of the living room and the large enclosed backyard extend living space.

The property has been continually upgraded since 2012. In 2012, we tore out old kitchen and opened wall to living room. Now guests can visit while the chef is preparing meals. The new kitchen has all stainless appliances, high-end cupboards, Caesar stone counter, and tiled wall.

In 2013 we tore out old bathrooms and modernized them with glass and porcelain tile and granite countertops. Several doors and windows were also replaced.

We have just replaced the living room furniture and the kids room with new 'Tommy Bahama' furnishings: all adds to a nice fresh look.

The new washer and dryer gives guests the facility of keeping their clothes fresh.

In keeping with new trends in linens, we have purchased new spa linens and duvets. The kids room has traditional bedspread in Tommy Bahamas style. All blankets, throws, covers are washed on a regular basis.

TVs (4 flat screens) are in each bedroom and the living room; DVD players and CD players are in the living room and the kids’ room. Fully equipped kitchen. Gas BBQ is on the deck.

Porta-Cribs and High-Chairs are also available. Bicycles, Boogie Boards, Beach Chairs. Outdoor hot/cold shower. Wireless internet.

Casitas del Mar is a spacious duplex consisting of two residences with private entrances, decks, garages, and large interior rooms which provide privacy and space. Upstairs is not available for rent.

Location: Casa Grande is located in an excellent low-density family neighborhood. There are no bars or restaurants in the immediate vicinity: but a short 10 minute walk down boardwalk takes you to dozens and dozens of restaurants and night spots.

Noise ordinances (ie loud music, large noisy groups) are strictly enforced to ensure that neighbors who live and work year round are accorded respect.

Parking regulations are strictly enforced.

Please note that this is not a 'Party House.' We specialise in housing families.

Review #1380068 Amazing location and property!



Wow! What can we say??? My mother (63), myself (37) and my daughter (3 months) stayed here for six weeks this winter (January and February). We LOVED the place! Pam, the owner, has set up a very comfortable and welcoming rental. The three bedrooms are spacious and there are two full bathrooms. The kitchen has all the required amenities and there is a BBQ, although we didn't use it. We loved eating lunch out on the patio, while my daughter played in the sunlight. The rental is spotless and Pam has very high standards of cleanliness, so you don't need to worry about that at all. She was very helpful to us, often checking in to see if we have everything we needed. We did not have a car, but we rented one a few times and there is a parking spot. There are a couple of bus routes within one block, which let you get downtown and to some specific sightseeing spots (Balboa Park, for example). The travel times are about 30 minutes by bus. But you can't beat the location. . .it's one block from the start of a long, long boardwalk. We walked this every single day and enjoyed listening to the ocean waves, watching the surfboarders and getting some exercise. It was heavenly! There are two grocery stores within walking distance, so you can get all your supplies. There are also a selection of restaurants nearby (Fatburger and Rubio's Mexican Grill). When it comes down to the bottom line, we were happy every day and we definitely plan to return there again. We wish we could have stayed longer, but Pam had guests who come back every March. Don't hesitate, book this place and go!

Pamela is a retired Learning Disabilities Specialist and French Professor. She additionally manages family residential and commercial properties. She takes great pride in maintaining an exceptionally clean property that is frequently updated...either with new furnishings or with major remodeling.

Pamela Ellis purchased this house in 1999

Pamela purchased www.casitasdelmar.com since this property is located in one of the most coveted beach areas in San Diego. North Pacific Beach, specifically Law Street Beach/Palisades Park Beach, is known to locals and surfers more than tourists. The neighborhood homes are large on bigger lots, so high density is not an issue. Neighbors are friendly and know eachother. Return guests soon become part of the neighborhood. This property is special due to its size. The exceptionally large enclosed back yard is great for families with small kids. The large 500 sq ft deck is perfect for dining or relaxing in the sun. The newly remodeled kitchen opens into living room and promotes socializing. Bedrooms are large and comfortable. Newly remodel bathrooms include one bathtub/shower combo (main bath) and one shower (master)

This property which is just around the corner from miles and miles of beach allows residents to not be subject to noisy crowds but gives them access to the beach. Restaurants and entertainment is just minutes away down the boardwalk.

Home away from Home!!!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay in Pam's rental was just amazing! We felt at home from the first second. The house was equipped with everything we needed and even more. Our two kids (girl 4, boy 2) enjoyed to play with the toys from Pam's granddaughters, bicycling or going to the beach with the handcart to play in the sand with the "sandtoys". The location is just great and really calm. Our stay of one month passed to fast and we were so sad to leave. We like to go back again! Thanks Pam for all!!!

Beautiful house and so close to the beach

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I brought our 2 young boys (ages 4 and 6) to San Diego. This was our second time staying in this house and we can't wait to go back and stay there again. The house was perfect for us. There is plenty of space for a family of 4. The house has everything that is needed for a week stay at the beach. The kitchen is updated and we enjoyed being able to BBQ and sit on the deck and eat with our kids. For us the best part was the location and that we were only a few minutes walk to the beach. We would highly recommend this location!!

This property is outstanding.

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I have rented properties in Europe, Australia and all over the United States. I will say that this property rates right up at the top.

We have rented in San Diego at least 20 times since our daughter came her to college and graduated 6 years ago. We are thrilled with the location of this property which is just blocks from the water, yet is not bothered by the traffic that goes with beach property. It is in a lovely residential area and has all the beach toys you can imagine. The garage is loaded with beach toys, bikes,wet suits and more.

We loved the Fung swei of the property, decorated beautifully with top notch linens and a kitchen equipped with everything you need to cook right at home.

This is a great place for couples or a girls weekend as the bedroom areas are divided and each have their own bathroom.

And the yard and deck are incredible. Not only fung swei inside but beautiful landscape outside.

Pamela and Maria were great to deal with and available anytime we called or emailed.

I recommend this as a top spot in San Diego....especially Pacific Beach.

Excellent Stay. Will return for sure.

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed for a week and were visited for several nights by our three adult children and a fiancee. The house was plenty big enough for the six of us. The house is perfect. Beautiful furnishings throughout and a fully equipped kitchen. Pam is a delight, she even came to wash off our patio after a rain one morning. The back yard is also quite nice with lovely plantings and sculptures and total privacy. The garage includes anything you could ever want for the beach with many (10 or more) bicycles for riding on the boardwalk. We have stayed in many rental homes and this was the best by far. Thank you again Pam.

Amazing Property, A Bit of Heaven at The Shore

  • 5 of 5
GREAT property! Would definitely stay again. Couldn't have asked for a nicer place. It was ideal for 4 adults. Pam has thought of everything! The small details were great and very much appreciated such as a yard with lawn furniture, spices, laundry detergent to wash the towels, 8 beach towels, a shelf of tools/flashlight/gadgets, tip sheet with best places for food, directions on how to work appliances, contact numbers, …. I fell in love with the luxury sheets on the bed and will definitely be getting a set for myself!

Beautifully appointed in every room. Liked having two bedrooms on one side of the house and the master on the other… it gave a little space and separation. We never heard anyone in the upstairs unit. New dishware, refrigerator, kitchen, espresso maker, new pots/pans, … The artwork throughout the property and fine attention to creating a wonderful space was not lost on us. Great sculptures and landscaping was not lost on us. So close to the beach (about 6 houses), a garage full of everything you could want from wet suits, to beach toys, to beach umbrellas, and chairs. Good wifi for those of us who had to work.

We stayed in October - weather was perfect and sunny every day, high of 75-80. For those like us from the East Coast, no one in San Diego has air conditioning which we thought was wierd. There is a beautiful, constant breeze from the ocean and the temperatures are pretty steady all year. The Pacific Ocean was much colder than the Atlantic in NJ/MD this time of year. Virtually no swimmers in the water but lots of surfers. The waves were very small to none at all. Did not have 1 day in two weeks with whitecaps.

We loved walking down to the park to enjoy the sunset every evening with others from the area. There was something to watch always - surfers, yoga in the park, bicyclists, and even a wedding! Everyone was really friendly. Pam's outdoor deck was incredibly large, complete with grill, outdoor refrigerator, and tons of seating. It was a lovely residential community, never saw or heard the neighbors (we were in the off season). We could thoroughly enjoy our stay and be just a ½ mile from everything else we might need (gas/grocery). Our only disappointment was that there was far too much to see and do and we simply ran out of time. Cannot wait to return as it truly was heaven on earth the whole two weeks we stayed!
