About this listing
This is a clean, spacious 1 bedroom home with lots of light on the second floor of a stand alone building. It is two blocks from the beach and includes...
*full kitchen with all utensils, bathroom with bathtub & shower, WiFi...(no television!)
*Beach chairs, beach towels and beach umbrella are INCLUDED for beach use.
*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.
*Private yoga instruction & Therapeutic Massage are both available to our guests at great prices.
*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.
Guests have access to the whole home.
Interaction with Guests
Our paths might cross during your stay, as we live a couple houses down...but most likely not. We give our guests plenty of space and privacy but are just a text or phone call away at any hour if you need something.
The house is located in North Pacific Beach. It is an eclectic coastal neighborhood of families, travelers, and students. There are numerous restaurants, cafe's, bars, shops, grocery stores, and yoga studios within a few blocks of the house, easily gotten to on foot or bike
There are many options for getting about. Most of the local landscape can be explored by foot or bikes (there are rental shops nearby). There is a bus stop one block from the house that runs all the way down town to the city center as well as up into the counties north of us. Bus can be a bit circuitous for longer travel, so car is recommended for those excursions. Car to Go has many vehicles available in the area and Lift is commonly utilized as well.
La Jolla stretches just north of the property with is more dynamic shoreline, mediterranean feel, marine sanctuary with dolphins, seals, and sometimes whale sitings from shore!
Down Town San Diego, the city's center, is a 20 minute drive from the property and offers some unique neighborhoods, such a Little Italy and the Gas Lamp, museums and art galleries, night clubs, a great selection of restaurants, and unique sea port.
No self tanning or hair dying products in house.
No candles or incense (for fire safety reasons).
Michelle and Ryder have a beautiful place in Pacific Beach that is literally close to everything. Very short walk to the beach and great food/bars in PB, and a really short (think 5 minutes) drive to La Jolla. Their home was super clean and organized, with a nice bathroom, full kitchen, and really good wifi! We'd recommend it to anyone.
Warm and welcoming, great location with big rooms and lots of light during the day. Made use of the beach equipment they provide and extra storage for my bike and board was perfect. Ryder had a recommendation for the best place with my type of surfing in mind. Also, a helpful dining card with useful recommendations on it too.
Welcoming host. Briefly met Ryder - showed us to the beach house and helped with luggage. The beach house was as described. Very clean, bright, and spacious - perfect beach house. Location was ideal - 2 blocks from Pacific Beach, restaurants, cafes, etc. Extra amenities were great - beach bag, cooler, lawn chairs, umbrella, and beach towels for the beach goers. Also provided, list of things to do in the area and places to eat. Great and enjoyable stay!
***parking wasn't too bad - street parking only, farthest we had to park was about 2 blocks, but that was usually if you left in the evening.
A comfortable apartment, perfectly located which had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay.
We really enjoyed our time in San Diego. Michelle & Ryder's place was great- it was very spacious and very conveniently located near the beach, restaurants and shopping. We also enjoyed the added bonus of the view of the fireworks from the place. The only negative was the bed was very hard and the pillows were thin. Other than that, we had a very enjoyable 4th of July weekend!
We loved our stay at Michelle and Ryder's beach home! The house was beautiful and we had all the amenities we needed. They left out some beach chairs, a cooler, umbrella, and a great speaker for us to use in the house, which were nice touches! It's only 2 blocks from the beach and in a great location. We'd definitely stay there again.
Awesome place to stay. Michelle & Ryder made it so easy from the start. Take advantage of the "Things to do" sheet they leave for you at the place, they won't let you down! We had a really great time and this place was exactly what the listing made it out to be. I would happily stay here again.
