Why Avanti Real Estate chose San Diego County

I bought this ocean property because I love the ocean but was not able to enjoy it because I lived inland and worked so much. Now I don't need to drive to see the ocean, I just open the patio door and smell the fresh ocean air and enjoy beautiful sunsets. I also love the boardwalk where I often go skating, biking, or take a refreshing walk. The ocean is invigorating and fun to catch a wave while boogie boarding.

I love Pacific Beach and want to share it with you!

What makes this condo unique

Once you get to this property, you do not have to go anywhere. You have everything you need when you park your car in the private gated parking garage. You can surf, kayak, boogie board, and scuba in the immediate area. You can walk to most activities. Breathtaking views everywhere.

Attractions: Beach, Biking, Boating, Fishing, Golf, Kayaking, Shopping, Shopping,Restaurants, Surfing, Swimming, Theme Parks, Sea World, San Diego Zoo and Wild Animal Park

Excellent Condo "Steps to the Sand"

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this condo for 3 months and absolutely loved it. Jen, the property manager, is extremely helpful and quick to respond to any questions. The property was large, clean, and well-stocked (even included beach supplies and wet suits!). The condo is centrally located- the front door walks out to the main stretch of PB on Garnet Street and the building is right on the beach. Restaurants, coffee shops, bars and the grocery store are all steps away. The garage parking is fantastic since this area can get pretty crowded. Noise/music from the surrounding bars can be a little loud at night but was easily tuned out with a fan. I would definitely recommend this condo to anyone looking for a clean, spacious, fun and lively spot in PB and would return without hesitation!

I rented Steps to the Sand vacation rental in Pacific Beach with 5 of my best friends. This condo is in the perfect location to all of the best restaraunts and bars and also just a short walk to the beach! It was spacious and homey and next time I visit I will definitely be taking this place into consideration.

Reviewer Comments:

All in all, we managed to have a great time during our week even with the noisy bar across the street, the sirens from the fire department, only a block away, and no air conditioning during a warm, humid week in San Diego. There were so many choices of places to eat within walking distance that we did not make it to every one. The beach was beautiful and close enough to make us very happy, people watching from the balcony even proved to be entertaining. That being said, it was very difficult to sleep even though the nights cooled off enough to be comfortable, we could not leave the windows open for a breeze because of the tourist activity and the bars & restaurants below. Maybe a unit on the south side of the building would have been quieter. We were told there is no "air conditioning at the beach"...well, I've been to many beaches and the units have had ac...sure would have been nice to shut out the noise once in a while. The unit itself was pretty shabby and dirty when we arrived. The carpet was so stained, we did not want to take our shoes off...the cabinets in the kitchen had sticky food all over them and the trash had not been emptied. The ice bin and trays had specks of dirt/sand in them and some of the glasses, bowls and flatware were dirty when we pulled them off of the shelf. The bedding smelled and looked clean and the towels smelled clean also, I'm not sure if they just did a lousy job at cleaning or what, but we spent some time cleaning up before we even unpacked our groceries. We were determined to have a good time and did so, but be warned: there is no manager around to help in an emergency, or to just ask questions...there is a binder with information in it, but it needs to be read before you do anything there. To sum it up: The place is dated, dirty and noisy but, it can be fun that close to the beach! Definitely would not go there again!

Reviewer Comments:

Our family of 4 (8yrs & 11yrs) had a great stay at See the Sea rental units. We stayed in a 2 bed 2 bath and had all that we needed including every beach toy and activity. It was well stocked with everything from boogie boards to beach chairs, board games to and even a cooler. The building was a little dated but it was clean and had everything we could have wanted including being on the beach.

Cannot recommend this property. Beware.

  • 1 of 5

Although nice, this unit was not the luxurious space the site promotes. It is on the small side and any more than 4 people would be difficult. Much of the décor is older. The kitchen is well stocked and everything is clean. The parking is also very nice to have. The beach, beach items available in the condo, the restaurants were all very nice to have just outside of the unit. I wish however that I had read the reviews more carefully. This unit is so loud at night that sleeping is impossible if it is warm or hot outside. There is no air-conditioning which may not be necessary for 8 months out of the year. But if you rent during the summer the windows have to be open. Once the bar music stops across the street, the sax player on Mission Blvd starts and goes until 3 am. So does the foot traffic, skate boarders and street fights. By 4:00 am the garbage and delivery trucks start and do not stop all day long. Forget trying to take a nap during the day to make up for the lack of sleep at night. The owner of the unit could easily eliminate the problem by installing air conditioning units in the bedrooms. With the windows closed the noise is diminished. The owner and the rental agency is well aware of the issue and argue that none of the units have air conditioning and fans have been provided. The fans were not adequate when it was muggy and hot outside as we experienced, There are also ear plugs in the kitchen drawer. This could have been a very enjoyable week. I hope that the owner takes note of this and realizes that people are paying money in good faith to have a nice vacation spot. Again, This unit is very, very noisy all night long. The main windows face West so get the long afternoon sun. The master bedroom window faces Mission Blvd and the sax player. He reportedly has been there playing every night for 6 years. He was certainly there every night for the 9 nights that we were there. And he is not that good. The bedroom window also sits on the alley where the delivery trucks start arriving about 4 am. Please beware of this rental unit.
