Pacific Beach House Rental Photos and Description

Inviting 3BR+/2.5BA Retreat minutes from the Best San Diego has to offer!

This charming Garden Retreat Home is nestled in North Pacific Beach away from the hustle and bustle but within walking distance or a short bike ride of the many splendors that Pacific Beach offers. The home is tastefully appointed and full of modern conveniences ...

After a fun-filled day exploring Pacific Beach's miles of ocean and bay shoreline rinse off in the heated outdoor shower. Grill fresh seafood (available from The Fishery on Cass Street or The Fish Shop on Garnet Avenue) on the barbeque or prepare a delicious meal in the gourmet kitchen. Finish your meal with a special dessert from the French Gourmet on Turquoise Street or stroll a few blocks South to Mr. Frosty's for a soft serve treat - a local favorite since 1974.

Complete your day with a relaxing soak in the master suite's claw foot tub before a dreamy night's sleep in the suite's California King bed. (The Master Bathroom also includes a shower stall.)

The Garden View Room's cozy Queen size bed comfortably sleeps 2 and overlooks the patio garden.

The Twin Bedroom has 2 Twin Poster Beds and is great for 2 adults or two children.

The den includes a convertible bed suitable for 1 adult or two children.

A spacious and flowing floor plan allows guests to enjoy meals together at one of several indoor and outdoor dining areas while also providing pockets of solitude for relaxing or reading a book.

During the summer enjoy a peak view of the Sea World fireworks show through the livingroom window.

This home is located in a peaceful residential neighborhood and as a courtesy to our neighbors we do not allow loud parties. The primary guest must be age 30 or over. This is a smoke free and pet free home.

I purchased this home in Pacific Beach because it was close to San Diego's biggest outdoor playground - Mission Bay Park. It's difficult to find a better place to enjoy biking, rollerblading or splashing in the surf with your family and friends.

Soon after, I met my wife Rachel during a cooking class at Great News!, a local cooking school that is renown throughout the region.

In 2000 we extensively remodeled our home while drawing inspiration from Rachel's background in Landscape Architecture and our combined love for gourmet food.

Our two young boys have had the pleasure of learning to boogie-board, surf and sail within minutes of our home. Ask us about opportunities for adult and child classes during your visit!

It is our pleasure to invite our guests to enjoy the many attractions and activities that San Diego has to offer, to savor our year-round great weather and to relax in our cozy beach house.

Great place to stay!

This house was really nice! We stayed over Thanksgiving week. Rachel and her family were very nice and helpful. Rachel offered to buy or order a turkey for us to make sure we had one for our Thanksgiving dinner. We cooked a 16 lb bird in 4.5 hrs in the rocking convection oven in the kitchen! She also suggested buying tickets to "The Grinch" which was a fabulous production we really enjoyed. The house is located near grocery stores and restaurants. We were able to watch the sunset from the nearby beach. It was a very comfortable and quiet place for our kids and ourselves! I highly recommend this house!

Beautiful home and gourmet kitchen…a relaxing family getaway!

We stayed in this house during Christmas week with my parents and other family. It was a perfect space for multiple generations to relax, cook, enjoy al fresco dining, or take walks to the beach and other environs. Situated in a quiet part of Pacific Beach, the house is nice sanctuary and is also good for the gourmet cook, as the the kitchen is fully equipped. Rachel was very responsive to my questions and quick at returning our security deposit. We enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this home!

Perfect Location, Beautiful House

We had a very nice stay for our weekend in San Diego. If you are a fan of Pacific Beach, you will absolutely love the location! It’s within walking distance to restaurants, bars, surf rentals and the beach. The kitchen has everything you need. Also this house has a really nice backyard where we enjoyed our coffee every morning.

I should note it was very easy working with Rachel to rent this house. Thanks for helping us have such a great visit!

Could not have been better

We stayed in this beautiful home for 5 days in late October while my husband attended a conference at the convention center. My parents and my 2 1/2 year old were with us and a hotel for all of us for that length of time would have been an expensive, miserable alternative. We're all seasoned travelers (my father's a retired airline pilot) and we were all knocked out by this spacious, thoughtful, elegant home. It's larger than it appears in the photos and the owners keep everything clean, uncluttered and welcoming. The details that really made the experience for us were the high quality linens (cozy sheets, thirsty towels) the immaculately clean and comfortable beds (my mother reported that she had the best sleep of her life in the master bed in this home), and the complete silence it was possible to achieve for sleeping due to the excellent windows and the seclusion from noise provided by the house plan and landscaping. This is the perfect home for napping children with multiple options for sleep areas that can be closed off from the rest of the house and the owner provided some wonderful toys and books from her older children's collection that truly delighted our son. The location was ideal and there was a grocery store (Vons) within a 5-minute drive. We preferred the beaches further north near La Jolla ( Scripps in particular) to the beach closest to this home but we had a great time at all of the beaches we visited. If you like to cook ( as we do) then this home will absolutely satisfy your every need with a nice grill and high end appliances throughout. Overall, this home will likely be part of the reason we return to San Diego and not some other part of Southern California for the beach time we crave each year. It was simply the best.

Inviting Escape for our Wedding Night

My fiance and I live in the area of the rental house, but wanted something nicer to stay in for our wedding night and for the week we had guests in town. This house couldn't have been more perfect for our needs...an absolutely beautiful master bedroom that made us feel like we were on a getaway far from home. Wonderful appliances and the top of the line for all of the fixtures, just an amazing house. Very highly recommended for families, responsible adults, etc...not a party house, but just a great place to relax and enjoy the tranquil sounds of the garden fountain!
