Beautiful PB beach pad (2 blocks from the sand)!

Beautiful little Pacific Beach pad! Tons of backyard space (bar, fire pit, BBQ, and plenty of seating) to make your stay in San Diego a memorable one! This space is two blocks from the sand and is right on the main drag of Pacific Beach with groceries, restaurants, bars, and the beach all steps away. This spot is made for those wanting to get the full Pacific Beach experience! Bicycles, surf board, beach chairs, and the perfect set up to have an awesome stay in San Diego are all included.

What guests are saying:

“Stayed at Christine's place for one night and it was better than I expected. It is a small space but very put together. The patio is the best part about this listing(has a bar, bar stools, beautiful hanging swing chairs, fire pits, and bikes. It was clean/neat(smelled really clean when I walked in and had an extra trash can outside which was honestly convenient. She provided extra towels, kitchen appliances, arcade/board games, and was quick to respond. Also allowed for tandem parking in her one parking stall which was awesome! The bathroom and kitchen is very small but it does the job for a night or two, depending on how many guest you bring, wasn't a problem for me and my three guest. Not to mention, it is about two blocks from Pacific beach and in the center of pb nightlife and eatery. This being said if you do not like this environment this isn't the place for you since there is a lot of foot traffic and noise since the place is directly behind a chain of food businesses/markets. Due to Covid-19, the noise level wasn't high at all but my prediction is it will be moderate to high when more people come out of quarantine. Overall a great stay ! Will definitely stay again.”

“My stay at Jayme’s was perfect. The location was ideal for my needs and I was able to walk everywhere I wanted to go. The space was clean, the water was hot, the neighbors were quiet. It was just perfect and the sheets were so so comfortable I even asked Jayme where she bought them! Highly recommend this place!”

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

“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.”
