Studio apartment blocks from the beach, bay, and busy Garnett Ave. Clean and cozy, comfortable for two, it's an affordable place to stay while you enjoy everything San Diego has to offer.
Hi, I'm Chris. I travel frequently for work and list on Airbnb to defray some of my housing costs since I'm never home. My place is in the heart of Pacific Beach, the house is simple and older but kept nice and clean. It's all about the location, you can walk to everything in PB. 1 and 1/2 blocks to the beach, 2 blocks to the bay, 3 blocks to Garnett Ave where there is a large number of bars and restaurants. The house itself is a large studio with a queen sized bed, private bathroom and full kitchen. Can accommodate 1-2 people, more on request but you'll need to figure out sleeping arrangements. Free wifi, 46 inch flatscreen with Netflix, beach chairs and umbrellas. You have a private patio with a hammock and bbq, and a shared yard. If you're staying there that means I'm out of town but if you contact me in advance I'll be more than happy to leave you directions, recommendations, etc. I have friends with local tourism and adventure businesses so anything in the way of bike rental, surf lessons, jet ski rentals and so forth can be arranged. It's roughly 20 minutes to the airport or downtown by car (roughly $25 in cab) or you can take a Car2Go or the bus (public transportation in SD is NOT very convenient though). There is no designated parking space, street parking is free but can be difficult to find on peak summer days, no one's had to park more than 3 blocks away though and you can always pull up behind the house to drop off your luggage. Once you have a confirmed reservation please check the house manual section of my page for guests section that unlocks for details on key exchange, etc. The house just had the carpet, kitchen and bathroom redone, the more recent photos show the brown tile and no posters on the wall. Please keep in mind that the listed price doesn't include the cleaning fee or Airbnb's fees, so the total will be higher.
Whole house, access granted through keybox.
Interaction with Guests
Minimal, housekeeper is on call if you need anything.
You can walk everywhere, Uber and and Car2Go downtown are cheap if you want to get out of PB or go to and from the airport.
Check in at 4PM, check out by 11AM. If you overstay check out without emailing me I'll charge $50 against your security deposit, I didn't used to but some guests have ruined it for others, sorry. Other than that all you have to do is leave it in the same condition you found it in, clean. Please toss the dirty towels in the shower and take out your garbage. If you cooked please wash your dishes and wipe down the kitchen, If I come home to food splatters on the wall you will get a bad review.
It is a simple studio perfect for visiting the beach and nearby bars/ restaurants but further enough away to get away from it to sleep. Easy check in.
I had a great time while staying at Chris's pad. Everything I expected and match the description perfectly. Chris was easy to (website hidden) with Netflix YouTube and all that was a plus and the being so close to the beach is awesome. Overall recommend this place to everyone.
Great location. Within walking distance to many things. HOWEVER the massive amounts of mold in the bathroom and shower made it tough to enjoy this experience.
Had a great experience staying here! It was super close to not only Pacific Beach, but also near plenty of shopping and places to eat or drink. I'm really happy with our decision to stay here, as the Pacific Beach area ended up being one of our favorite places in San Diego. The apartment was a nice little studio and really homey. Loved the yard area. Beautiful spot!
The place was clean and ready to go. Very convienant part of PB. Nothing to extravegiant but a perfect place to put our bags down, get ready and eventually sleep. It was fun.
Chris's studio is in the perfect location. Less than a 5 minute walk to the beach and about a 10 minute walk to all the bars and restaurants on Garnet. Also, Sunset Cliffs was just a 15 min drive away. I recommend that spot for one of the most beautiful sunsets you will ever see.
Bed is a little small but was an ok size for my girlfriend and I just keep in mind if you're not a couple it might be a little tight sleeping space.
Chris was also extremely responsive and made checking in and checking out very easy.
I'm a surfer who travels frequently for work, so I put my place up on AirBnB when I'm out of town. Feel free to contact me in advance and I'll be happy to help you with local info, trip planning, and maybe even arrange to loan you some of my gear (surfboards, bicycles, camping gear, etc). I also have a lot of friends with local businesses so if you need to be set up with lessons, rentals, dinner reservations and so on let me know. Pretty laid back, I put clean sheets and towels out, make sure all the dishes are done and the house is vacuumed, I just ask that you keep it neat and do your dishes, I take care of the rest (cleaning fee covers laundry), have a beer or two out of the fridge, just put some new ones in there before you leave.
