*** SPECIALS - Call 858-349-1405 or send an inquiry for last minute availability deals, specials and monthly rentals. No $500 damage deposit required when booking directly with us! ***

The Tourmaline House is the stylish, relaxing getaway that makes a vacation with family and friends so much better. We are located in Pacific Beach, San Diego within walking distance to explore the beach, bay, shops and restaurants without the need of a car.

With brand-new furnishings, a private backyard retreat, and amenities like bikes, Wi-Fi, baby items and beach gear, all included – you can relax in the privacy that only a true home can have.

We can accommodate up to 8 guests and 2 dogs in our home. The entire house is wheelchair accessible, and we've had several handicapped guests to date.

The Master Suite is a luxurious retreat with a King size bed, two closets, cable TV and an indulgent large bathroom finished in travertine and glass tile. A dual sink vanity separates the spacious walk-in shower on the right from the enclosed toilet on the left. There is enough space in front of the bed to add a pack’n’play and easily walk around.

The Queen Bedroom is next to the Master Suite and sleeps 2 in a queen bed.

The Kid’s Bedroom sleeps 4 guests in 2 twin over twin bunk beds.

A large full bath on the hall has a separate dressing area with a dual sink vanity and a real Jacuzzi.

Enjoy full access to a stocked kitchen, enclosed grassy backyard with barbecue, parking for 2 cars, WIFI, entertainment center in living room with cable, blue ray player and surround sound. Beach gear is included: chairs, umbrella, boogie boards, cooler plus 2 bikes, beach wagon and scooter. We also have a portable crib and a baby chair.

The house sits just 2 blocks off the beach at Tourmaline Surf Park, a 5 minute walk. This part of the beach is the north end of Pacific Beach, a local's paradise, as the tourist crowds concentrate further South.

A 3 minute walk from the house you'll find Turquoise St, with a grocery store and numerous shops and restaurants. You will also be equally close to cute cafes and restaurants on Cass St. Easily reachable on bike are the beach boardwalk and Garnet Avenue, the center of the beach nightlife.

We will provide you with a detailed interactive map with lots of local tips - favorite restaurants, clubs and shopping, scenic bike-drive rides and seasonal events to enhance your San Diego experience.

We also have a 3-bedroom town home in Pacific Beach available. Please check out the Felspar Townhome, VRBO listing #295172

About The Owner

I am a visual artist and mother of 3 little beach-loving kids. Originally from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, I moved to San Diego in 2003 and fell in love with this wonderful city. Other thing I enjoy is telling people about all the cool things San Diego has to offer.

The Owner purchased this house in 2011

Why The Owner chose San Diego County

Pacific Beach is the best! The most fun beach neighboorhood, far less expensive than La Jolla, much more interesting and functional than Mission Beach. The beautiful Sail Bay is also nearby and you can easily include it in your bike ride. A variety of restaurants and shopping are all within walking distance. It is also the epicenter of San Diego's beach nightlife. For all this, PB is the perfect laid-back beach location and spares you the driving. All other main San Diego attractions are within short distance. The Tourmaline House stands out in the neighborhood as one of a few brand-new single-family homes in walking proximity to the beach. The minute I drove by and saw the new construction work, I called my realtor and made an offer! So glad I got it: )

What makes this house unique

Comfortable. New. Modern. Our home and furnishings are top grade and guests love this! They tell me 'This is so much better then what we had last summer'...

Add to this a fantastic location and an enclosed grassy backyard. I don't know of any other beach house that can even compare...

Nice House, Wonderful Beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Tourmoline House! We were two grandparents, a mom and three little boys. The street the house was on -- Mission -- was a bit busier than we expected, but the kids' room with the bunkbeds was in the front of the house, so the adults slept great. The kids loved that there were toys in their room. The house is well stocked with all the right kitchen tools and it was clean and comfortable. We loved how close it was the Pacific Beach (once we found the best way there). The boys dug in the sand and we went on long walks along the boardwalk. And it's a five- minute walk to a few great restaurants. Thanks Juliana!

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the "blue house" as my grandson called it. The house was clean and very comfortable. It was nice having the back yard for the kids to play in when we were not at the beach. It was great to be so close to shops restaurants and Belmont park. We had a great stay!

Awesome house, solid location!

  • 5 of 5

Five of us stayed for 5 days over the summer and had a great time. Just the right size for all of us with a nice size backyard to enjoy the San Diego weather. The house was a short convenient bike ride away from all the action on the beach but far enough away that the nights were quiet. Definitely recommend!

Would rent this home again

  • 5 of 5

Location, amenities and appearance as described in VBRO. A little noisy on weekend nights, but an otherwise wonderful location relative to Mission Beach, Pacific Beach and Lajolla. Especially enjoyed Juliana's "insider tips" for places to see and places to eat, as well as her clear instructions relative to check-in/out and operation of electronics. Two sets of adult couples and three teenage girls had plenty of room (and sinks!) We would definitely rent this home again.

Ideal Location of Attractive Home with Conveniences

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay! So close the beach and near excellent restaurants – all were within a short walk. Thank you for the excellent restaurant recommendations. The outdoor living space with grass and nice furniture was great for our family of 6. The comfy living room with working gas fireplace was especially pleasant. The master bedroom is so spacious with 2 large closets and an attractive newly remodeled bathroom. The ability to park two cars on property was so convenient. Also enjoyed the convenience of the washer, dryer, and dishwasher for our family. The owner, property and location were all great!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we rent one of Juliana's houses. And again, we are very happy with our experience! The house is walking distance from the beach and it has everything we needed, even beach toys for the kids! it was super clean and beautifully decorated. But the most important thing is that we trust that Juliana won't cancel our reservation within a few days from our trip, as it has been the case with other owners.... Without doubt we will be renting again from Juliana for our next trip to San Diego
