The house sits 2 blocks away from Tourmaline Beach, a 5 minute walk to the beach. This area is the north end of Pacific Beach, a local's paradise, as the tourist crowds concentrate further South. Beach has lifeguard and bathroom.
A 3-minute walk from the house you'll find Turquoise St, with a grocery store, gas station and numerous shops, restaurants and bars. You will also be equally close to cute cafes and restaurants on Cass St. Easily reachable on bike are Garnet Avenue, the center of the beach night life, and and the shopping strip in Birdrock.
Things to Do
Even before you arrive, we'll send you a map with our favorite things to do in the neighborhood. We are sure you know about Sea World and Legoland, but here you'll find food, events and places to visit you may not have heard about. As Pacific Beach locals, we want to share some of our personal picks with you and hopefully make you feel like a local too.
We are pet-friendly
Your well-behaved pet is welcome with a pet fee ($10/night) and additional deposit ($200).
Sustainable and Comfortable
We are taking steps to reduce our energy consumption while keeping our guests as comfortable as ever. Our home now has a tankless water heater and our new acquisition, a whole house fan that circulates the ocean breeze throughout the house, keeping everyone cool for a fraction of an AC's energy usage. Coming soon, we'll be installing solar panels to harness the ever present San Diego sunlight! Your vacation's carbon footprint will be tiny when you stay at the Tourmaline House.
We are 18 minutes away from Downtown, airport and Convention Center. We often house business travelers who bring their families along or simply split costs with roommates. Why stay at a boring, expensive downtown hotel when you can work and have a vacation at the same time?
