The Space

**Looking for a smaller home? Check out my other listing:**

Come stay at my lovely home in Ocean Beach!

The home is a beautiful, peaceful, non-smoking, no-pet, 2 bedroom 1 bath and 1/2 a block from the cliffs (gorgeous spot) and about 1 block from a great semi-private beach in Ocean Beach (you can hear the ocean waves at night)! It's full of plants, natural light and a zen vibe throughout the home. My home is decorated with beautiful and unique, one-of-a-kind pieces representing my world travels. Everything has a story!

There is a private patio outside with a nice patio table and six chairs and a brand new grill that you are free to use as well!

The master bedroom has a queen size, very comfy bed with lots of pillows. The second bedroom has a queen size, pillow-top bed and a brand new trundle bed (two twin beds). There will be a high quality blow up mattress available that can be set up in the living room.

My home is about 4 blocks to Newport Avenue which is the main street where all the restaurants, bars & coffee shops are. The location is phenomenal and safe. Street parking with no meters. Note that the house is on the second floor and you will have to go up 1 set of stairs :)

Insanely comfortable beds, fancy high thread count linens and plenty of blankets and pillows! Everything gadget you could ever want in the kitchen. Plates and glasses for 10+ people.
Full fridge/gas stove. Flat screen TV (3D) with cable & WIFI for easy access to Netflix, etc.

I'll leave extra toiletries in case you forget anything and an assortment of organic teas.

I'll leave local maps, a stack of San Diego magazines, guidebooks, local coupons and a list of great things to do around my home.

5 min drive to Sea World and the harbor (whale watching and deep sea fishing), 10 minutes from the airport, downtown San Diego and Fashion Valley Mall.

Send me a message if you have any questions. I look forward to having you in my home!

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Giovanna's place is incredibly ideal for a relaxing beach-adjacent getaway. The place is comfortable, even with a larger sized group of 5 or 6 people. The location can't be beat. It's tucked away off the street with easy access via an alley behind the property. You can occasionally hear the neighbors on either side just because of how the acoustics are, but that would be my only (extremely minor) complaint. In summary: excellent place to chill out and enjoy pretty much as SoCal an experience as you can get :)

  • Our stay at Giovanna was great! She was out of the country during our stay, but she responded to all of my emails very quickly, and she provided her contact information for her neighbor Sara, who was VERY helpful. I contacted Sara when I had a bit of trouble locating the condo. Not only did Sara meet me on the street in front of the property, she also gave me a little tour of the home. I highly recommend Giovanna's house as a great place to stay in Mission Beach!

    Response from Giovanna:

    Thank you so much Christine!! You guys were great guests. Just a note, the house is in Ocean Beach (to not confuse future guests). :)

  • Super easy check in but a little hard to find. The place is cute and really does have a great zen to it. We enjoyed our stay here! Thank you!

  • Giovanna's place was exactly as described! Very homey feel and so many awesome trinkets from her travels that felt like a vacation in itself! The shower head was also fantastic and plenty of hot water :) we left the car parked for 2 days as you can walk right to the cliffs or beaches and only a few blocks from Newport Avenue for coffee, acai bowls, fish tacos, and the noodle house!! So close to everything and the people met on the streets were super friendly. My only qualm was that we reduced the number of people from 6 to 5 one night and to 4 the second night, but our per person additional cost was never adjusted.

  • Bright and large apt in a great neighbourhood. The host was very responsive and we were able to book just 3 days in advance. Clean and sunny and within walking distance of the main drag of Ocean Beach.

  • Giovanna's place was just what we were looking for - a clean, homey place to relax and enjoy Ocean Beach with our 7 month old daughter. Her apartment is beautifully appointed, very relaxing, and super convenient to the beaches and restaurants. If you have never been to Ocean Beach, you should know that it's a densely populated area, so you will definitely hear the neighbors, and it's also in the flight path from the airport, so you will hear airplanes quite often. Still, the good vibes of Ocean Beach and Giovanna's place more than counteracted all of that!

  • Giovanna was a fantastic host. The house was great to live in, it's very cozy and the pictures and ornaments around the house are really interesting. The surrounding beaches and shops were also fun to explore, we had a really amazing time. I would definitely recommend the house.

  • Giovannas home was the perfect setting for my quick family vacation. The house was lovely and bright and clean and just as described.
    The location was perfect.. really close to Ocean Beach's downtown area and "steps from the beach " is not an understatement. the house and the neighborhood were very quiet and relaxing.
    Giovanna was a gracious host, and was available to us at any point should we have needed her. The directions before and during the stay were extremely helpful.
    the only complaint is we wished it was a little warmer so we could have enjoyed the beach that is just outside the door!
    all in all a really great space to stay in beautiful SD

  • The weather was stunning and Gia could never have been nicer, more accommodating, outgoing, gracious, welcoming, and helpful. No wonder San Diego is a destination spot!

    March 2014
  • Giovanna's place was just as described. Close to the beach and full of memories of her travels. She had great details on where the key was and how to get into her place, she even wrote me the evening of check in to make sure everything went smooth.
    Thank you Giovanna!

I recently returned from 3 wonderful years of traveling the world and have settled down in beautiful San Diego. I own a Fair Trade, import company where I work with women artisans from all over the world to make handmade goods. Check it out! The name is aMano Fair Trade ((website hidden) will bring it up). Traveling and empowering women are my two passions and I feel blessed to be able to do both while living in such a wonderful city and near the ocean. My home is my sanctuary and I am happy to share it with like-minded people from anywhere in the world! Namaste!
