About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-7) (4 adults max.)

This home is just 1-2 short blocks from the Pacific Ocean and 1-2 short blocks from Mission Bay's 'Sail Bay'. You can have the best of both worlds. The hustle and bustle of ocean fun & games or the low key, tranquil peace of the bay. A beautifully landscaped, fenced yard provides privacy and security for family play time, barbecues, time with friends, or simple outdoor enjoyment.

Catering to families, our home offers a quiet environment, safe location, easy ocean and bay access, and garage parking all steps from restaurants, grocery stores, shopping, and services. You can park the car in the garage and not use it for the whole vacation!

Tastefully decorated,the home offers a queen-size bed in both the master and in the second bedroom; a full-size sofa sleeper in bedroom #3; a desk area for the workaholic with high speed internet; TV with cable; a stereo CD player; finished hardwood floors; and a recently remodeled kitchen with granite countertops, new cabinets, new flooring and a dishwasher. We provide beach towels, beach chairs, a charcoal barbecue, and an ice chest on wheels for your daily beach or bay excursions.

A portacrib, changing table with pad & cover, highchair, booster chair, and misc. toys for newborn to 5 yrs. are available.

Vacationing in Pacific Beach means you are minutes from Sea World, from the Zoo, from the Wild Animal Park, Balboa Park (with museums, theaters and restaurants), the downtown Gaslamp Quarter, Petco Park (Padres baseball), Qualcomm Stadium (Chargers football), Torrey Pines Golf Courses, the Del Mar Race Track, College Campuses and the Scripps Institute of Oceanography. La Jolla, Del Mar, Cardiff by the Sea, Torrey Pines National Park, and Solana Beach are all within 30 minutes. This location has it all!

Guestbook comments from the owner

When I asked the kids what was their favorite thing about the house - the 5 year old said "the yard" and the 3 year old said the bed that was a couch; my answer - "everything!" You have helped us have a wonderful vacation. Thanks!

Peaceful home just steps from the beach

  • 5 of 5

The home was perfect. Everything you could need for a comfortable stay. The yard was great, beautifully maintained and accessible. The house was only a couple short blocks to the beach, set within a cozy neighborhood, but just beyond restaurants and shops.

Great location and a great house!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this house for a week and just loved it. Walking distance to the bay and beach. The one-car garage is very helpful as beach parking can be tough to find. All sorts of beach equipment at the house (beach chairs, beach towels, a large beach umbrella, ice chest, 2 beach cruiser bikes, boogie boards, sand toys, etc.). It's got a large, grassy, well-manicured backyard with comfy patio chairs and umbrellas, and lots of big trees and bushes for privacy, and is great to just hang out in. Plenty of restaurants within walking distance. Right next to the Catamaran hotel, which has a beautiful grounds for walking around and they have a free parrot show at 3:30pm every day. If you just wanted a relaxing vacation by the beach and don't want to see the rest of San Diego, you could get away with not renting a car here. The owner has everything dialed in for this place for renters, and she's very communicative. Highly recommended!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the wonderful review! Yes, the Catamaran Resort Hotel is a short two blocks away and they offer a full service spa as well as sports equipment rentals. One does not need to be a guest there. So glad you enjoyed the parrot talk and their lovely grounds right there on beautiful Sail Bay.

Great accommodations - lovely home!

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated a birthday in San Diego (2 grandparents, 2 parents, 15-month old). The house is well-equipped (everything we could want for the kitchen, the baby and the beach). We were 5 minutes from the beach and the owner provided a wealth of information (and leisure time equipment) so we were able to thoroughly enjoy an area we had never been to before. We highly recommend this property, and will be back ourselves.

Wonderful home and location - great for families

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful stay here with our two young boys exploring the beach and the zoo before making our way up to Carlsbad for a couple nights at Legoland. It was such a great home base for us. My boys loved running around the backyard playing with bubbles, and walking to the beach, and ice cream at the Baked Bear nearby. Such an amazing trip and a perfect home and location. We hope to return again soon! Thank you!!

Great place for families!

  • 5 of 5

This property is well-located to both beach and bay. Some of our favorite restaurants in PB are short walks away. Our children loved the grassy backyard for a place to play when we weren't at the beach/bay. Highly recommend this place if you have youngsters, or if you want all the beach qualities of San Diego with not as much crowd.

Awesome location, has everything you need

  • 5 of 5

The location of this property was great, 2 block walk to either the bay or the beach. Well stocked for families with beach chairs, toys for the kids, etc. The closet in the master is plenty big enough for the pack n play, which was very helpful. Owner was great to deal with. Only downside was the single bathroom.
