About the property

Take a family vacation in the Pacific Beach/Mission Beach/Bay area without paying a fortune! This fully furnished vacation rental doesn't have the view of a place on the water, but it doesn't have the price tag either! And the beach is only 4 blocks away!

Centrally located and only near the Zoo, Balboa Park, Downtown Gas Lamp District, Old Town, Sea World, Mission Bay & of course the BEACH! Enjoy this spotlessly clean, comfortable, family-oriented apartment with oak hardwood floors. 2 bikes, beach towels, chairs and umbrellas, body boards, sand toys, and gas BBQ. 2 laundry rooms. Park your car in the private garage & walk to local grocery stores, shops, restaurants & beaches. Unlimited phone calls within USA and Canada, cable TV and internet with WiFi. 3 queen beds and a double sofa-sleeper in lvrm.

Large groups, we have 3 more 2bdrm apts in this 4-plex and 20 more nearby. See our other listings!

We go the extra mile for your enjoyment!: * The ocean and bay boardwalks are wonderful for bike riding so we provide beach cruiser bicycles for you... just like the ones you rode as a kid. No fancy gears, just a plain bike with a wide comfortable seat, high handlebars, kickstands, and back-peddle brakes. * Relax at the tables and chairs in the grassy courtyard and enjoy a cold beverage after a day of sightseeing. You will find everything you'd expect to have in a home away from home. If we don't have it, let us know and we'll get it! * Henry's Organic Market and Trader Joe's are less than a block away. Restaurants, bars, clubs and shops are plentiful in PB which gives you plenty of activities if you don't want to sit around. Everything you could need for your stay is within a 5 block radius... just park your car and enjoy the best of what San Diego has to offer. The ocean is 5 blocks to the west, with lifeguards, showers & toilets. You can also rent children's bikes with helmets (a California law) just down the street. ASK us if this unit has AC!

Great Location, Great Price!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for a family trip over Valentine's Day/President's Day weekend. Nancy and Jeremy took were a pleasure to deal with and we found that everything was just as they said it would be. We were able to go to the beach, Sea World and the Zoo in a quick 4 day trip. Thanks for your superb accommodation and service!

Okay place for the price

  • 3 of 5

The place is okay for the price and being a bit older. Not great water pressure. Beds and pillows not that great but okay. If you stay here you need to be aware that there is a tavern very close by and the music is very loud until 1:30 but then as the people are leaving the bar they are loud and very foul mouthed. If you are into the party scene then this place might be okay for you. We did walk to the beach but felt is was a rough part of town at night but okay in the day. The company that manages the property is very helpful, cheerful and tries to fix and problems quickly. Because we had a larger vehicle it did not fit into the garage but we had no trouble finding street parking. I would not stay here again but it is an okay place to rent if you just need a place to land.

Great inside, AWFUL location!

  • 2 of 5

We happened to stay here during one of the hottest weeks on record in San Diego. It averaged 98 all week. When we arrived, we opened up the door and all the windows had been shut for a while so the apartment felt like 120 degrees! It was miserable. To make it worse, the pilot light was out on the stove and the whole place smelled like gas. It took a full day to get the smell out with all the windows open. Fortunately there were a bunch of fans in the closet that we could use, but it was still miserably hot. Another thing that made the stay miserable was that the apartment is less than 500 feet from three major bars that are open way into the night. 50% of the nights we were there they each had incredibly loud music booming and lots of drunk college kids mulling about and talking/yelling loudly until all hours. This might not have been too much of a problem if we could have kept the windows shut. But because it was so hot, we had to have the windows open. For 4 of the nights we basically just didn't sleep due to the noise. The only thing that let our kids sleep was a single fan that was provided that was extremely loud. So it drowned out the bars and provided really loud white noise that they could sleep with. Those of us in the other bedrooms didn't have that luxury.

Overall, the inside of the apartment is fantastic. At least that was a plus. But the fact that the management didn't think to air the place out or even check on it (where they would have noticed the gas smell) before we got there is outrageous. Although their customer service during our stay was otherwise excellent, the noisy bars made it so I would never stay in this particular apartment again.

Owner's Response: Hi there, Thank you for providing this information and helpful feedback. I'm sorry to hear that your stay wasn't ideal. We take our guests feedback very seriously as we want to ensure the comfort and quality of our rental properties to all of our guests. We are very sorry about the gas smell in the unit as we were unaware of this situation prior to your arrival and we sent someone over to the property as soon as it was reported to resolve the issue. Unfortunately we cannot control the noise levels outside, but with your feedback we have decided to install a portable A/C unit. You will now be able to keep the windows closed at night, and we hope this will help for a better night sleep. We're happy to hear that, overall, you enjoyed your accommodations. We thank you again for your feedback and we would love to have you back as guests on future trips to San Diego. Best, NVR Team
