All about Larry’s place

Hi Folks. Please read ALL about the Sanctuary below under " THE SPACE" before you ask questions or enquire about a reservation. This newly remodeled stand alone one bedroom has been a favorite of many for over 20 years. Designed to appeal to couples and small families it simply cannot be beat. The photos and the reviews tell the story, its that simple. Please don't forget to read all the info provided and share with us why you want us to share our home with you. Thank you.

The space
Newly remodeled, The Salem Surf Sanctuary is a dream spot for lovers of sand, sun and surf, whether you're a dedicated and experienced surfer or just a beach lover. You will appreciate that your'e only 50 steps away from the water and the sandy beach. Challenge your friends to a friendly game of beach volleyball, horseshoes, bocce ball and spend an entire day having fun in the sun! Located in the middle of Mission Beach this home has over 20 restaurants, markets and coffee shops within walking distance.

The Jacuzzi is always functioning every minute it can so you do not need to ask if it is working. Technicians fix it as fast as possible when it breaks which is rare.

FOR YOUR SAFETY DUE TO COVID 19 CHECK IN IS NOW AFTER 6PM AND CHECK OUT IS AT 10 AM for THOROUGH cleaning. We strive to have a very very clean home and use a top notch cleaning service. In some cases it is possible for an earlier check in at 4pm and late check out at 12:00 pm for $50 to speed up cleaning but there is no guarantee until the day of check in or departure. Please let us know if you want either at least 48 hours ahead of time. Once again we do this for your safety and there is no guarantee until it occurs.

We ask that you please let us know the purpose of your stay and disclose the ages of everyone in your party if you don't mind. Unless a family, all people in your party must be over 25. If your'e new to Airbnb and have no reviews please disclose so.

Due to demand most of the year there is a 4 day minimum so keep this is mind when you make your enquiry. PRESENTLY 8-10 THRU 8-16 IN ITS ENTIRETY IS AVAILABLE NOTHING SHORTER. Other dates there are exceptions in between reservations however ( to fill in 2-3 days gaps ) so be sure to check the calendar carefully so your request does not leave a vacant day or two in between the present reservations or your request may not be accepted. This is especially important now after a difficult year due to Covid 19.

Within minutes you can arrive at the famous San Diego Zoo, ride the coaster at Belmont Park or visit Shamu at SeaWorld. San Diego truly has so much to see and explore that its actually tough to balance the beach and the amusement! While your'e in town be sure to take a trip over to the land of OZ in beautiful Coronado. Be sure to visit our Surf Shop and pick up your free gift with purchase at Emerald City Surf Shop.

This is not your typical vacation rental in any manner. It is not a party house of any sort. If your a slob and don't take take great care of your own home don't rent mine please. Its decorated with a variety of Mid Century furniture and personal art work and photos. As a stand-alone ground floor home with private deck it allows you to feel like you are living in your own oceanfront oasis with a private jacuzzi. Its decorated in bright colors with an open floor plan and hardwood floors. This home embraces the essence of the laid-back Cali lifestyle.

There is a huge parking spot big enough for a suburban to the east side of the home. We suggest you always back in as its easier to park and to pull out. Its easiest when you car is facing east and back in from that angle.

Your home away from home with fresh white linens allow you to feel comfortable knowing your in a clean home. A fully equipped kitchen with top notch kitchenware gives you the option of eating in rather than dining out. You can keep a few things at home because we supply color- safe shampoo, moisturizing conditioner, 1" curling iron, and a blow-dryer. Wrinkled clothes can be fluffed in the dryer, steamed, ironed if you like a crisp crease. Unpack your bags and hang up your clothes on thick wooden hangers in the closet, or folded in the dresser. No matter how long you choose to stay, your clothes will be fresh and clean thanks to the provided washer and dryer. High speed WI-FI is provided. The bedroom and living room have Televisions with Spectrum Cable service. Apple TV is available in the living room. Connect your bluetooth device to our ION "Boom Box" or enjoy the local radio stations.

Traveling families can relax because it comes equipped with a pack n play, stroller, beach toys and more. Yes... designed around a little fireman or a princess! Reserve these items ahead of time by communicating this when booking your reservation. (Allow 24 hours notice for baby items.)

Ready to relax in the spa yet? The spa is located on the beautiful redwood deck so that you can loosen up after a long day exploring everything that San Diego has to offer! Please Note: Having a hot tub at the beach is no easy task. Between the sand and salty air it can become quite damaging. For obvious operational concerns, there is no guarantee it will be working but is 99% of the time. With that in mind, when issues do arise they take time to repair especially over weekends and holiday periods. It is maintained weekly to keep it in working order.

There is a hammock in the closet that is easy to assemble outside for your lounging pleasure. Enjoy the beach chairs, beach umbrella, beach towels, skimboards and body boards too! Even fins, masks and snorkels are provided.

NOTE: If you do decide to rent our wonderful home please confirm you have read the " House Manual " once your reservation is completed.

Where you’ll be

San Diego, California, United States

While some may compare San Diego’s Mission Beach to the East Coast’s Atlantic City and Coney Island, there is a unique Southern California vibe you can’t find anywhere else here. Nestled between Pacific Beach on the north side, and Belmont Park on its southern side, Mission Beach offers a lively and robust variety of activities in the sun, surf and sand. From hot dog stands to fine dining eateries, hot night clubs to street performers, expect to find all kinds of free-spirited beach goers in a fun, carnival-like atmosphere along the sandy shores.
