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.

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.

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...

Awesome Stay! Everythig was Perfect.

  • 5 of 5

This home was absolutely beautiful and everything we needed was available for me and my family. We had both sets of grandparents and our two boys - 6 and 4, and our Siberian husky, and everyone was accommodated without an issue. Everything is in close proximity from restaurants, to the beach to the grocery store and gas station! Thank you Juliana for being an awesome host. Can't wait to come back for our future holidays.

Wonderful, comfortable, well equipped home!

  • 5 of 5

The owner is very responsive and helpful with information on the house and on what to do and where to eat in the area. There are two great bikes, boogie boards, a wagon in which to carry things, and ladders to use to help load your roof bag!!! Circulation in house is magnificent and so comfortable. My dogs loved having a fenced, grass back yard. And I loved it, too, so I didn't have to be on the other end of a leash every time they wanted out. I couldn't have been happier staying here and will certainly plan to return.

Description was right on; property clean and very well maintained; excellent customer service; would definitely recommend the property (in fact, already gave a neighbor the information). I loved walking the 2 blocks to the beach for an early morning walk every day. One of my dogs enjoyed that also. The French Gourment is a great place for breakfast and probably other meals, but I'm not sure. The cinnamon rolls and Cinnaholic were delicious. And do stop in the Custom Ice Cream Sandwiches for a real special treat! Not good for your weight loss diet, but definitely worth one visit at least.

Great house, close to beach

  • 5 of 5

This house suited all our needs while on our San Diego vacation. There were 8 of us and we were all comfortable. I was a little nervous about some reviews I read about Pacific Beach, but we had a great time and spent an entire day on the beach and our 6 year old loved it (and so did us big kids). We didn't have any issues with noise at the house, it was very quiet and in close proximity to everything we needed. We fell in love with San Diego and will definitely return.

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!
