BEACH HOUSE - DOG BEACH SAN DIEGO

  • 5 of 5

The house was block from beach, very accessible to local restaurants, shops and dog beach. The view from balcony was very beautiful, watching sunsets and sailboats go by, very peaceful. Rooms were very modern and the appliances were new. The owner was reachable all times, for any questions and super sweet! The price was right, the location was perfect and the vacation was memorable for the whole family. I would highly recommend this house as a vacation rental in San Diego, so close to everything.

Perfect weekend away

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and another couple came to stay here for the weekend and we were all completely blown away when we walked in the door. The kitchen is amazing, the rooms are very bright and airy and the patio and roof deck overlook the river mouth and provided wonderful dog watching opportunities. We wanted to take the kitchen with us when we left. And the couch in the dining/hang-out area. The grill and outdoor eating was so wonderful. i have no words to describe how great it all was. Overall we had a perfect little vacation and this house made it that much better.

We all kept saying how the pictures of this place just didn't do it justice. I'd definitely stay here again and already have a few friends who are looking to rent it for their own upcoming trips!

Beach house near dog beach

  • 5 of 5

The photos of this home do not do it justice.This is a lovely, peaceful rental with room to stretch out and relax and all the amenities one could hope for, including a doorway that separates all of the bedrooms from the main kitchen/visiting section of the house in case you want to sleep in. The overhead flight traffic was not a problem at all and the beach access is really nice, especially if you have a puppy and the owners were available and helpful with all and any questions. We'll definitely be back!

Lovely house!

  • 5 of 5

This was a sweet house, impeccably clean and well-stocked with everything you would need. The only recommendation is that if someone is using the room closest to the street, do bring an eye mask as the white curtain covering the door does not keep out the light at night.

Dog Beach Rental

  • 5 of 5

Great house for a family. Lots of room with a front, back and upper porches. The kitchen is very modern and clean. Safety is #1 in my book when I travel and this house felt very safe. The bikes are fun to head down to the village. Easy walk to Dog Beach (which is fun to watch all the dogs) and to OB. Roy and Mary are very pleasant and answered my few questions when I had them.

perfect people & pooch getaway

  • 5 of 5

I was very grateful to be able to stay at this rental. The process was easy from beginning to end. Mary was friendly and accommodating. The house was very clean. The kitchen was extremely well stocked. The location was kind of amazing for our needs - which was to step out our back door and walk our dogs on the beach. How many other places can you do that? Plus you get to see gorgeous sunsets from the living room. The house is also very close to places to eat, do yoga, get massages, etc.
