QUIET, RELAXING, FAMILY FRIENDLY HOME... 4 BLOCKS FROM BEACH!

Pacific Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-8)

This airy and light loft is a sanctuary to relax into. The 13' ceilings and ample windows give it a spacious and roomy feel. You have everything you need, yet is not cluttered or cramped. It is well thought out and very organized.

There is a separate entrance and is very private from my main house. Nestled in a well established residential area that is predominantly original owners and natives of the area.

You'll feel at home and peaceful, for it's a great place to unwind and recharge your batteries. Yet, there are plenty of restaurants, stores and places for outdoor adventures within 4-10 blocks of our home.

With a fully stocked and equipped kitchen and several grocery stores within blocks, you can eat in and relax at home.

It comes with it's own washer and dryer, so you can go home with clean clothes, if you choose!

Our weather is ideal for outdoor dining on the balcony off of the kitchen and sun bathing on the roof deck in the chaise lounge chairs.

Walk Four blocks west, and enjoy the best stretch of the beaches in Pacific Beach - well known Law Street Beach. It has a nice grassy bluff to watch sunsets from. Public bathrooms for your convenience. The surf there is gentle and small, ideal for young children and inexperienced beach goers. Yet, the surf just blocks to the North is more enticing for those water lovers who want to hit up the surf.

This Law Street Beach is also the North end of the boardwalk that goes south for miles. It's a fun stroll along to see the fun PB has to offer and also great for bikes, making it a nice beach cruise.

The bay is due South of us and has it's own boardwalk that lines it in a full circle. More quiet and laid back than the ocean boardwalk and fun to see the sail boats glide along with ease.

The Master Bedroom has direct access into the bathroom. The rooms are comfortable, as are the beds. The entire loft (minus the bathroom) has an awesome real wood floor that is unique and wonderful to walk on. The bathroom has a beautiful tile floor.

Everything is brand new, just built in 2011 specifically for this purpose. You will feel so comfortable and that everything is so well thought out!

Keywords: Brand new, 2 bedroom/1 bath, industrial loft - home, that is completely private from main house. Sleeps 8, 13 foot ceilings, full kitchen, balcony & private roof deck. Truly takes your breath away. Four blocks from a family friendly beach, grass park and north end of the boardwalk. Walking distance to restaurants and shops, yet quiet here at home. A great place to go off and explore and come home to relax. Best of all worlds, a wonderful place to make memories that will last a lifetime.

I am a native of the area and I have great pride in our beaches. I love our loft and home that we have created and our neighborhood that we live in.

I am so grateful to not only be able to live at the beach, but to have found VRBO, so that I can share it with you.

I love my home, I love my beach and I'm excited to show you - our world here, it is paradise.

Greg Ross purchased this house in 2011

I love sharing this tranquil and lovely home with new people, as a vacation rental. For, I'm very proud of this amazing space I've created.

You will feel welcomed into our home that we worked hard to create and have made it so special, all the while having autonomy and plenty of space and privacy.

I would say what my property has that is unique to others in the area are two main things.

First of all, it's VERY quiet where we live. So, if you are looking for a place to relax, and not a place to party and be loud, then you found the perfect private get away.

Secondly, you will feel entertained and satisfied, for this quiet and remote retreat is within blocks of beaches, restaurants, stores and the bay.

If you want the balance, of getting out and seeing lots of fun things, then being able to come home and relax in a quiet native setting....... allowing you to feel more at home than being a tourist in the thick of it, then you found the right place!

Sunny San Diego,perfect end to a California dream

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 12, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
The last leg of our 17 day California road trip took us to Shari's loft sanctuary in sunny San Diego. After 13 full on days we were ready for chilling out by the beach and what a perfect place to do so. The apartment was clean and well equipped and although we arrived slightly earlier than anticipated Shari was welcoming and very accommodating. We are a family of 4 - 2 boys of 12 and 15 and this place was ideal, close enough to all the tourist spots we wanted to visit and just 4 blocks from a wonderful sandy beach - Pacific Beach has a student/ bohemian feel which was great for the relaxing spell we needed, it's quiet and felt very safe - the pool was good for a dip too. Shari was fantastic - she gave us our space but was on hand when we needed her with helpful tips and directions etc. The shower was fab - so much room and a massive shower head - the boys loved Netflix and the nightly fireworks that you can catch on the roof terrace. Quiet at night so sleep came quickly and Shari lent the boys boogie boards for body surfing which they thoroughly enjoyed on our last day. Local restaurants were good and we found an Indian takeaway too. We cannot fault the place and feel we have found another American friend in Shari - would recommend her and her loft highly, you can't go wrong ! If the world wasn't so big we would be back again and again but this corner of San Diego will stay with us forever.
Owner's Response: Jane, you and your adorable family were truly a gift here at our loft. I really enjoyed meeting all of you and can hear your beautiful accents as I read this kind and generous review.

Tell the boys hello from me and I do hope you find yourselves back in our part of the world again someday!

Until then, take care and I am so happy that your time here was wonderful and memorable.

Aloha......

Lovely rental

The listing description and pictures were very accurate. Everything was very nice including the fold out bed, bathroom, and bedroom. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to make meals. Having two balconies was lovely, one on top of the loft and one just outside of the kitchen.

Shari was really helpful, flexible, and easy to contact. She even gives back the entire deposit if you do a minimal amount of clean up at the end of your stay.

I would recommend this place to anyone interested in a quiet area in Pacific Beach. Children should probably be over the age of 5, though, to stay here. There was a new ice cream place on Mission Drive where you customize your ice cream sandwich with cookies and choice of ice cream. Yum!

It was a bit difficult to keep our two young boys working within all the limitations of the property. We had to constantly make sure they weren't standing on railings, staying away from windows, and out of things in general. Also, the washing machine was broken (Shari let us use her personal one, though) and the dishwasher needed some repairs. Both were going to be fixed soon.
Overall, a really wonderful experience.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind and honest review, Andrea. I enjoyed having you and your family here for your vacation, you are a sweet family.

I have repaired the hinge on dish washer and the clothes washer is running, so we are good to go again! Thanks for your patience with coming downstairs to use my clothes washer.

I'm glad it was a nice time away for you guys, enjoy the rest of your summer! Take care.....

AMAZING STAY!!!

Shari's loft is AMAZING...and so is she!!! The pics are right on and everything was very nice and clean. Felt like we were part of the neighborhood, just like she describes. Loved how it was close to everything, including the beach. Shari was very helpful in giving us tips for the area and made us feel very welcome. She is so easy to talk to and has such a good heart. She truly had our best interests in mind and made sure we were comfortable and happy with everything. Wish we weren't so busy so we could've hung out more, but had a great time with her. Our girls loved the chalkboard wall and enjoyed sleeping in the loft bed the entire stay. The balcony was great to enjoy breakfast n coffee on and had wonderful views of the sunrise and sunset. Its just a 4 block walk to watch from the beach too. LOVED the shower!!! I would DEFINITELY recommend this rental to anybody! Very peaceful neighborhood, but within walking distance to the busy areas too. Will absolutely stay here again when planning a trip to this area. Very quick return of our deposits which was greatly appreciated! OVERALL AMAZING EXPERIENCE!!! THANKS SO MUCH SHARI!!!

We feel very fortunate to have found this condo for our stay in San Diego. We are a family of four, including two school aged children. My parents also joined us for part of our stay. We couldn't have been happier with the condo. It was beautiful and very clean and well maintained. The location is close enough to walk to the beach, but still in a quiet neighborhood. It also had convenient to access all of the local attractions (zoo, sea world, etc) Shari is a wonderful host, and was very helpful with any questions or needs we had. The home was well stocked, the beds comfortable, and the layout very livable. The kids loved sleeping in the loft! We enjoyed visiting nearby restaurants (Fred's, Roberto's, Thai Basil), and it was nice to have a Trader Joe's close by. Overall we would highly recommend this VRBO, and we would certainly stay here again. Thanks Shari!

Owner's Response: Jenifer, it was wonderful to have your multi-generational family here at our loft! I loved hearing the laughter and knowing how much fun you were all having together. Memories are the best gift we can give!

I found something of yours, in our loft. Please call, when you get a chance, to see if you want me to ship it back or not.

Hope to see you again sometime! Warm regards!

Oasis of Calm

I don't know where to start! We had such a great trip and really enjoyed our stay in Shari's loft. The property is beautiful, with many thoughtful details. It is in the perfect location for just about any beach experience you could imagine: minutes from the boardwalk, 4 blocks from the ocean, very close to shopping and ocean adventures...did I mention 4 blocks from the ocean?! I cannot put into words how wonderful Shari is, she has a genuinely kind and generous spirit and goes out of her way to make her guests comfortable. I would DEFINITELY recommend her loft to anyone looking for a calm, relaxing getaway.

I am happy to connect you to people, places and things that will make your trip more memorable, yet I'm pleased to give you all the space you need and want. I have contacts who can show you adventures on and off the water, pamper you for hair, nails, massage, I can direct you to all kinds of exercise and delicious food. I know so many ways to enjoy our beautiful city and am very friendly and personable without over stepping. This is a perfect setting for enjoying time with your loved ones, to play, explore, laugh and relax. You will feel like part of our neighborhood, more like a local than a tourist. Yet, so much to see, you'll feel full of memories, laughter and fun!
