Recently remodeled from top to bottom and nicely furnished, this Duplex (1 bdrm apt on top and 2 bdrm/2bath apt on bottom) beach vacation rental sits in a quiet upscale neighborhood on Law Street, less than a block from the ocean and Law St Palisades Park which was voted best ocean overlook point in the San Diego area.
This roomy duplex has 3 large private patio areas (one private to this unit in front with an ocean view and one shared patio in back) with tables and chairs and gas BBQs. There are 4 shared beach cruiser adult bicycles for riding along Pacific and Mission Beach and Bay boardwalks, sea bird reserves and the neighboring scenic drive through Bird Rock and La Jolla. Private double garage parking with automatic garage door opener and free laundry room (shared by both upper 1bdrm and lower 2bdrm/2ba units).
The light and airy living room is tastefully and comfortably furnished with all new furniture, queen sofa bed and a large screen plasma TV. The kitchen has granite counter tops, all new appliances and beautiful Maple cabinets. Master bedroom has a queen bed, 2nd bedroom has a double bed, each has a TV. Cable/wireless Internet, WiFi, Cable TV, unlimited phone. ASK us if this unit has AC!
Multiple Rentals in Quiet Upscale Neighborhood: Rent both the upper 1 bdrm and lower 2bdrm/2ba for extended families or friends vacationing together, less than a block to the ocean and Law Street Palisades Park. Several San Diego websites list it as the “Best Beach Overlook.” This two-block long patch of lush green grass, with several shaded benches, overlooks the sandy beach from the top of a 25 foot cliff. It is a favorite spot for observing the wide white-sand beach below and the endless numbers of surfers and sail-boarders displaying their skills at wave-ridding, just off-shore. The park is also a favorite for picnickers and sunset watchers and wedding/engagement and family photos. It has restrooms and outdoor showers. A wide ramp gives easy access to the beach below. North Pacific Beach around Law Street has a much more mellow, less crowded atmosphere than Pacific Beach and Mission Beach south of Crystal Pier/Garnet Street, yet Pacific Beach's myriad of ethnic and seafood restaurants, shops and clubs are only 6 blocks away.
Amenities Galore - we try to think of everything: The ocean and bay boardwalks are wonderful for bike riding so we provide new beach cruiser bicycles for you, just like you rode as a kid. No fancy gears, just a plain bike with a big comfortable seat, high handlebars, a kickstand and back-peddle brakes. There is a gas BBQ (with gas provided!), two laundry rooms, a private garage with auto garage door opener. WiFi Cable/wireless Internet and phone line insures that you can keep in touch with work if necessary and there is Cable TV and DVD. There is a communal grassy area with table and chairs. You will find beach chairs, beach umbrella, beach towels, beach toys for the kids, alarm clock, ironing board and iron, hair dryer, shampoo, dishwasher soap, body and hand soap, laundry soap and bounce sheets, coffee filters, saran wrap and aluminum foil, kleenex, paper towels, toilet paper, etc. Comfortable beds with high quality, high thread count sheets.
Peace of Mind while you travel: * Why tie up a credit card with a security deposit when you could be using that money for your well deserved vacation? We offer optional Accidental Damage Insurance, in-lieu of a Security Deposit. When you include this insurance with your reservation, the cost & repair of covered accidental damage will be handled by us! Coverage: unintentional damage to the vacation rental during your stay, up to $1,500, including things like carpet spills, furniture tears, broken lamps, & even pet damage in pet-friendly homes!
We recommend purchasing Travel Insurance. Protect your vacation investment from unexpected events. Did you know that vacation insurance could cover you if.... You or a loved one gets sick (even if they aren't traveling with you)? You need medical treatment while traveling? A blizzard or hurricane prevents you from starting your vacation or forces you to leave early? And much more.

Fantastic Location, Great Service, All you need!
When we arrived at this property, we were blown away by the proximity to the beach. Couldn’t have gotten a better location. The property was well maintained and clean. It was supplied with any amenities you would need for cooking & eating in. Had lots of extra bedding & towels etc. We had a couple issues (was cool at night and we couldn’t figure out the heat) but Nancy’s team was incredibly on the ball, dropped a heater off for us right away, and was very accommodating to any issues we had. There were toys for the beach for the kids, a spare cot & pack and play our kids were able to sleep on. A private garage in the back was super convenient since we didn’t have to worry about parking at all & easily accommodated our van. Would definitely recommend this place to family & friends and can’t wait to come back.
We are delighted you enjoyed your stay and that we were able to resolve the heating issue quickly. We invite you to stay with us again.

Great location just yards from the beach and a short walk to the main drag with shopping and restaurants (and possibly the most tattoo parlors per square block than anywhere). We've visited other San Diego area beach towns and this was our first visit to Pacific Beach, which felt a little more gritty than other areas (homeless people going through our condo garbage daily and sleeping in the grassy park just outside the condo, asking for cigarettes; I mention this for the benefit of families with younger children. We never felt unsafe, but our children are older). The condo was clean and comfortable with plenty of extra beach towels and blankets for chilly nights. My oldest said the pull-out sleeper sofa was comfortable. The washer and dryer on the property enabled this family of four to pack light (laundry detergent was available in the laundry room). The weather was chilly when were were there in mid-March, so we did not use the beach toys available in the garage, nor the beach cruiser bikes (note that helmets were not provided and these bikes are pretty rusty from being exposed to the elements all day). The courtyard behind the house, shared with the rental on the second floor, was calm and relaxing. Also, the garage parking was helpful and I suspect extremely important in the summer months when the area is sure to be packed and parking tight.
Thanks for your feedback. Pacific Beach does have a lot of character and it can attract an interesting crowd. The coast is the most desireable area to stay and unfortunately we cannot control the population that chooses to visit the surrounding areas, especially during Spring Break. We also have properties that are bayfront. The bay is quieter because it is in a residential area. There are less businesses around the bay, so less tourists and other unlikely suspects. I suggest staying on the bay the next time you visit San Diego.

Everything was fantastic! Cannot beat the location - very clean - beds were soooo comfortable - actually has 2 patios so you can catch the morning sun in the back, and afternoon sun in the front. Highly recommended!
Loved it. GREAT LOCATION,GREAT HOUSE!!!!
Pacific Beach beachhouse.
The location was great. The management was responsive. My one critique: They need to replace the carpeting, which is dated. But it was really nice being a half block from the beach.
Thanks for your feedback. We are happy you enjoyed your stay. We are always working with the owners of the properties and encouraging them to update their rentals. We invite you to stay again.

Great location, solid rental
We stayed for 9 days in June, two adults and two 4-year-old boys. The property location is fantastic. It's a half-block walk down to Law Street beach, you can be on the bluff in under a minute and knee-deep in the Pacific a minute after that. Law Street is about 6-7 blocks north of the party-heavy areas, so it's plenty quiet for families but only a 5-minute trek away from the pier and all the nightlife. Plenty of great food options within a 10-minute radius (get to Baked Bear, if you do nothing else) just be prepared for the bro-crowd to be out in force weekend eves. There's a surfing park about two blocks north that's super popular, but you can also surf directly off Law Street (there's actually a company that offers lessons right off the beach). No tidepools, but a mile walk north looked like it would start to get rocky.
The unit itself is standard fare for beachfront rentals, it's long and skinny and has the lived-in feel that every beach house over 2 years old always has. The front patio is nice for grilling and people-watching and the shared back patio - while not as conveniently accessible - is a little more secluded. The interior is generally well maintained, reasonably sized, and well laid out. We had two adults and two 4-year-old boys and never felt cramped, though it's definitely not a mansion (typical, for a beach locale). When we stayed the master bath toilet was missing a lid and the overall cleanliness of the unit prior to our move-in got maybe a B, and there wasn't much in the way of a "here's how the house works" book (you'll get an orientation email but we had to figure out the cable/dishwasher/etc ourselves), but those were our only complaints; everything else was in good shape and well-maintained. The kitchen supplies were pretty basic - there are pots and pans and whatnot but we never found pot holders, a pizza slicer, cheese sliced, etc. - so chefs may want to inquire ahead about what is and isn't provided.
The garage came stocked with plenty of beach toys for the under-10 crowd along with boogie boards, chairs, and everything you'd need (no surfboard, but that would have been a surprise). There are also a couple bikes available, with easy access to the beach bike path down 1/2 block toward the ocean.
All in all we had a great time, and would recommend this rental for anyone comfortable with the typical beach-style unit.
Thank you for taking the time to give us feedback. Guest feedback is appreciated to help maintain the vacation rental. We are working on a welcome guide for our rentals. We do provide technical assistance when guests have cable or internet issues. Next time you stay with us make sure to call us with any issues, and our team is happy to help. After each departure, the units are inspected by our maintenance staff to ensure they are cleaned properly. My apologies regarding the missing toilet seat. Again, if our guests call about a missing item or the unit not being cleaned appropriately, we are happy to assist them and deliver any desired items. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay.
