About the property

Beautifully Architected 3 Br Hacienda Style Beach House, Steps To Sand/Boardwalk

This 3-story luxury beach house, we call Villa de Pacifica, is located in North Mission Beach, just steps to the sand (~80 steps) and one of the best beaches in all the U.S. You will appreciate the architecture of this home with its curved archways, unique angles, pillars, trellis covered deck, terra cotta walkway, tropical feel, and modern/rustic charm. This house is newly furnished with 4 large flat screen TVs, main level stereo sound system, new appliances, barbeque, and new furniture including a rustic bar in the living room. Enjoy white water views from the living room sofa and from the end of the main deck. This home is on the sunny north side of the pedestrian-only court, allowing for more direct enjoyment of the San Diego weather as well as bringing in more natural light to the home. Courts extend up the Mission Beach strand in alphabetical order, starting with Aspin Court. This beach house is on Zanzibar Court, the furthest one North, providing out-your-door access to all the restaurants, bars, shops, grocery store, entertainment, and activities in the North Mission and Pacific Beach area. Having lived in San Diego previously, we knew this to be the location we wanted to have a second home. We waited for the right one to come along before making our purchase, to fulfill a life-long dream.

And of course, the best feature about the location of this house is the immediate access to the beach of the Pacific Ocean. It is just steps away (about 25 yards) and bordered by an active boardwalk that extends for miles. Rent bikes, skate boards, jog or just walk at your leisure along the boardwalk enjoying the ocean views and breezes. Typically, we spot dolphins playing in the waves as we walk down the boardwalk or take a coffee break at the many beachfront dining locations. You may want to consider treating yourself to a massage at The Catamaran Resort and Spa, about a minute walk from your front door and located on Mission Bay. Clients gain full day access to their amenities with any spa treatment.

Somewhat unique for a beach house, this home offers many spaces to entertain, relax and unwind, both indoors and out. There are three decks, two patios, and a palm lined terra cotta walkway that extends the length of the house. The most notable outdoor space is the private in-ground spa/hot tub sanctuary. It is circular and wrapped with pillars and outdoor curtains that can be pulled closed for privacy, if desired. This patio can be accessed through the French doors from the master bedroom or from the tropical plant-lined path along the side of the house. Also at this ground level, you can relax in the garden at the front court and enjoy a glass of wine and the ocean breezes.

The main living areas of the house are on the 2nd level and are expansive. There are dining options to choose from for eating indoors or out. The large deck off the kitchen serves as a social gathering area with an oversized sectional sofa and outdoor dining table. Order out from the many restaurants around the corner, or cook your own using the gas barbeque grill on this deck. Working on your tan? Up top is a sun deck with lounge chairs and small tables. There are two outdoor showers. One has hot and cold water for an exhilarating outdoor shower experience and the other cold water for convenient rinsing off when coming from the beach or before enjoying the spa.

The layout of the main living level lends itself to a variety of social areas to hang out with friends and family. To the front of the main living level is a bright, fully stocked kitchen with a dining area, separate “reading” area, up-to-date appliances, flat screen TV, French doors leading out to the main deck, and a spiral staircase to upper level loft and sundeck. A full bathroom with tub/shower is on this level as well. An office with a large L-shaped workspace and stereo can be found in the middle of the main level. It is very open to the rest of the living space and looks down into the entry way. It is nice when sitting in the office to open the door to a small walk out deck, to bring in natural light and ocean air. This is a great place to set up your laptops and keep in touch, as need be, with work or friends and family back home. Wi-Fi internet is accessible. Relax to your own music, from your i-phone or i-pod, or choose a local radio station, that can be played throughout the main level from the stereo with speakers located throughout. The living room offers a great space to entertain and can accommodate a large group. A rustic bar in the living room with an ocean view window, seats 5. There is additional comfortable conversational seating in the living room as well, with a leather sofa and two leather swivel chairs around the corner from a decorative tiled fireplace. (Fireplace is non-functional but adds to the charm of the living space). Extensive cable channels are available including popular sports channels. Flat screens are on extending arms to angle the TVs for maximum viewing. Storage and style are brought to the room with a coffee table/storage trunk and a rustic armoire. White water ocean views can be seen out the west facing living room windows. Opening the side window brings in the sounds of the crashing waves and ocean breezes.

This beach house has three bedrooms with the third being a loft. The master bedroom has a king bed, flat screen TV, in-suite bathroom, walk-in closet, and in-ground private spa patio outside the French doors. The second bedroom has a Queen bed with storage underneath it for suitcases, and a bunk bed with a single on the top and single on the bottom. A large armoire with a maximized storage configuration resides between the two beds. There is a large flat screen TV in this room as well. The 3rd bedroom is a loft with a single daybed and a single trundle. This bedroom walks out to its own sundeck, expanding the living space to the outdoors. The living room sofa also pulls out to a surprisingly comfortable, queen-sized bed with a tempur-pedic mattress. So, with the use of the pull-out sofa, the home sleeps 10.

There is a separate laundry room with full sized washer and dryer. The garage has a workbench area and two small parking spaces. The garage spaces can accommodate two small sized vehicles or your rental bikes. There is an additional parking space for a large vehicle in front of the garage inside the red lines. You may not want to go anywhere beyond your beach location since ample restaurants, shops, bars, Ralph’s grocery store, and entertainment are right-out-your door. So, you may not even need a car. However, being centrally located, has the advantage of easy access to the sites of San Diego such as the downtown Gas Lamp Quarters, Zoo, SeaWorld, Old Town, La Jolla, and even the airport being just a convenient 15-20 minute drive or less away.

Absolutely perfect place to stay! We had 8 adults stay for my 30th birthday and had such a great time! The location is amazing - plenty to do and see right around the corner. I'll admit, we didn't even leave the Mission Beach/PB area for most of the trip. Sherrie is a doll and provided excellent instructions and suggestions. You can tell this house is well loved and well taken care of. Definitely stay here - it's worth it!

Just Right!...

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was fantastic!!! The only down side was that we did not get to spend more time enjoying the place. We were in town for a soccer tournament and spent most of our time traveling between games all day.

The location is perfect, you are just steps away from the sand, not even a one minute walk from your garage door. You are located close to shopping, food and entertainment as well as the attractions that are in the area.

Sherrie, the owner, was wonderful! She was most helpful, friendly and accommodating, she responded to our questions and inquiries immediately. The home is equipped with everything you need for a fun comfortable stay.

We were not able to get "into" and experience the "culture" of the area because of our soccer schedule but this is definitely a place that you will experience the local coastal beach life that Mission Beach is famous for and has to offer and most likely that you are looking for in a destination like this. The area is fantastic!

We only wish we had more time to enjoy what this place has to offer. We loved it! It was just right for our family of eight. It was very family friendly! and we would recommend staying here to anyone.

Thanks Sherrie! We loved it!

“We enjoyed our stay, and loved the house.”

  • 5 of 5

Great location for a San Diego get away! Easy walking distance to both Mission Beach and Mission Bay, the home is well equipped for vacationing families.

This house has been updated and in excellent condition. It was easy to keep clean and conveniently arranged. The supplies left in the house were greatly appreciated. I truthfully cannot think of anything that could have been better !

The house was amazing! Very clean, tons of space, and so close to the beach.

  • 5 of 5

Sherrie was an excellent host to rent from. The pictures were spot on, the house had tons of space and the outdoor deck was a perfect spot to chill. We had such a wonderful experience and loved being so close to the beach. She left us plenty of bathroom items, towels, and even a cooler and boogie boards. I highly recommend booking here. Sherrie was helpful and thorough in her directions and advice and the stay was so pleasant.

About Sherrie DelPrince

My husband and I met and married in San Diego in 1991. We returned to our Midwest roots to raise our children but always retained connections to our favorite city, San Diego, specifically Mission Beach.

Sherrie DelPrince purchased this house in 2014

Why Sherrie DelPrince chose Mission Beach

Being in a fortunate position to buy a beach property, we new exactly where we wanted to be. North Mission beach offers all the activities, restaurants, shopping, night-life right out our door. The beach can't be beat and the boardwalk that borders it extends for miles of biking or leisurely walking. We waited for the right house to become available in our ideal location that had unique architecture, an open spacious feel, room to entertain our friends and family, and plenty of outdoor living spaces. We found the perfect house and named it, Villa de Pacifica.

What makes this house unique

In-ground spa relaxation patio, multiple entertainment decks as well as indoor entertaining areas, partial white-water views. Our #1 preferred location.
