About The Owner

My husband, son, and I lived on one side of the property and rented out the other for many years. We love the Pacific Beach community and love sharing it with vacationers. As our family grew, we moved a few blocks up and now both sides of the duplex are available to rent. Whenever we travel, we like to ask the locals where their favorite spots are and love doing the same for our renters. We are happy to give you the inside scoop so that you can get the most out of your San Diego vacation.

The Owner purchased this house in 2003

What makes this house unique

What we love most is parking our car on Friday and not having to move it again until Monday morning. Everything you need is within walking distance--the beach, the bay, restaurants, shops, grocery stores. There is so much to do or you can do nothing at all. And if you do venture out...there is so much so close by. Within a 20 minute drive you can be in the Historic Gaslamp Quarter, at La Jolla Shores, visiting museums in Balboa Park, at Sea World, the San Diego Zoo, or Petco Park watching the San Diego Padres.

Good times

  • 5 of 5

We came to SD for a semester abroad and it was harder than expected to find a long term accommodation for 6 students in Pacific Beach. Christiana and Joseph did not hesitate to rent their beautiful home to us. They were simply great hosts, who made us feel warmly welcome. They were always available for any questions or issues we had. The home was very comfortable and exactly as described. We had a cleaning service twice a month, which was definitely a plus! We loved having BBQ's with friends on our patio and the location was just perfect for us! (Garnet Ave with bars, shops, restaurants and of course the beach!)

I would highly recommend this home to anyone I know and I wouldn't hesitate to come back.

We all had such a good time with invaluable memories. Thank you!

close walk to the beach

  • 5 of 5

2 beds that sleep 2 each and a comfy couch that sleeps 2 more. We were expected a pull out bed but we made it work. We were provided with everything we needed from big pots and pans to cook for all 6 of us to nice toiletries that were provided. Short walk to the beach and nice neighbors. We were so happy to be able to bring our dogs. Overall nice, clean stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. We're glad you enjoyed your stay. In lieu of a fold out couch, we have a queen sized inflatable mattress in the master bedroom closet. We apologize if you did not find that. We look forward to having you back on your next trip to San Diego.

Very disappointed.

  • 1 of 5

Property owners were very nice and tried to please, but in our experience, the place was not well maintained. Many things were not ready when we arrived, i.e. missing or burned out light bulbs, dirty grill, flat bike tires to name a few. The place was clean on the surface, but there was dirt and debris under furniture. Owners worked hard to be responsive and fixed some things but lots still need attention. For example: the grill never worked, washer and dryer are still missing some control knobs and dryer is stuck on high and there is no light in this outside area, the light fixture and fan in the dining area never worked. I think the owners would serve themselves and renters better if they came and stayed in the house for a week and could see and try to live with all the things that are not up to snuff. The house has great space and is in a good location but it needs some work.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately, this review does not come as a surprise to us. Despite every effort we made to resolve the issues identified by these guests, they simply could not be satisfied. Many of their concerns were simply a matter of not knowing how to use the appliances--microwave and oven both work just fine, they did not know how to turn them on. Some of their concerns were unavoidable issues that we resolved immediately--light bulb burned out, remote control needed new batteries. That said, they did bring to our attention a few issues that we hadn't noticed in the time between our previous guests leaving and their arrival. We always appreciate feedback from our guests and make every effort to resolve those issues as soon as possible. In this case, an issue they notices with the fan required new parts to be ordered, which has since arrived and has been repaired. We also purchased a new gas grill and additional lighting for the unit. We believe that every concern identified by these guests has been completely resolved and regret that they found their experience disappointing.

Cute, clean, comfortable, well equipped, and excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this home! The location is excellent. It was a short bike ride to the beach, the b a y, grocery store, restaurants, .... The only time we used our car was to go the the safari park. We enjoyed evenings on the front porch with the large front yard. The home was clean,comfortable, nicely furnished and decorated, and well equipped. The owners were helpful and accommodating.

Just ok

  • 3 of 5

The pictures are misleading. The yard is unkept, the decor is different from photos and neighborhood is so-so. The owners are very nice and responsive. It is fairly priced but it was disappointing based on photos. My biggest complaint was the lack of cleanliness. We did not check in early yet there were hairs on bathroom floors and shower stalls. The dishes were not clean. The laundry area was awful and the available toys were mostly unusable. The owners seem so nice but need to be more involved.
