1Br Home 2 Blocks to Beach

This is a clean, spacious 1 bedroom home with lots of light on the second floor of a stand alone building (garage on the 1st floor) . It is two blocks from the beach and includes... *full kitchen with all utensils, bathroom with bathtub & shower, WiFi...(no television!) *The area generally a peaceful but can get a bit noisy at night on weekends as people walk to Garnet Avenue. Otherwise, the house is far enough away from the all the chaos & action of the main strip of Garnet Avenue (5 blocks) so that is cleaner and quieter, yet close enough that so many cafes, restaurants, bars, grocery stores, yoga studios, and shops are just a short walk or bike ride away. *There is usually plenty of on-street parking within a block of the house. On weekends if the street is full due to beach visitors, I have never had to park more than 2 blocks away. *There is a small cottage on the same property which is also offered on AirBnB. We live in a neighboring house and make a conscious effort to give our guests all the space and privacy they need, yet we are right there if you need anything at any hour. *We use eco friendly detergents & cleaning supplies whenever possible. Please let us know if you have any allergies or environmental sensitivities and we will do our best to accommodate date you. TOT #612524

What guests are saying:

“Couldn’t ask for more out of this stay. You are close to everything but somehow it’s still quiet. The landscaping is beautiful and peaceful. The beach is two blocks away and you are surrounded by great places to eat and hang out. I needed to work most of the week and the WiFi was incredibly fast. Would stay here long term if I could.”

Kick Back in the Hot Tub at a Calm, Coastal-Themed Oasis

Grab the boogie boards for a morning amongst the waves, then stroll the 2 blocks home and take it easy on wicker couches on the sunny backyard deck. Crisp, white decor and warm hardwood floors are accented with nautical art and ornaments. We are pet friendly with pre approval and a pet fee of $100

What guests are saying:

“A charming and warm cottage a few blocks from Pacific Beach. The bikes were nice but without a tool to adjust the seats,, we couldn't take full advantage of them.. We cooked a lot and all the appliances worked great. The space in the kitchen was appreciated along with the rustic large table for meals together. We loved the front porch and the backyard area with a the clean easy-to-use hot tub. The beds were very comfortable . The bathroom was clean and functional but a shelf or counter to put one's cosmetic bag would be very useful. Overall, an adorable home with style and comfort. We'd definitely return.”

PB Pier Surfside Studio w/AC+parking+surfboards

Steps away from the beach on Emerald Ct, smell the ocean air from this spacious studio that has surfboards, boogie boards, and parking for two cars! You're setup for an amazing treat. Bigger group? You can also rent the beach house (sleeps 8) that's on the same lot. Check out my car on Turo! https://turo.com/rentals/cars/ca/san-diego/mercedes-benz-s-class/561178

What guests are saying:

“Couldn’t ask for a better location—about a 2 minute walk to the beach and a handful of restaurants. The place itself is about the size of a hotel suite, so it was perfect for two people and our little dog. My only complaint was that there was an AC unit connected to one of the windows that prevented us from closing the shutter. We put a towel over the window at night so the family staying next door couldn’t see in to our room. Other than that, we loved the place and would definitely stay again!”
