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.
Chris was very helpful before arrival and once we got to SD. His place is probably shorter than a 2 minute walk to the beach. Awesome location in Pacific Beach. Close to everything you need. He even had bikes available to rent, at the price per day that everywhere else was charging per hour. The place was perfect for a couple there for a long weekend. No complaints. Chris was quick to get back whenever I texted him also. We didn't use the kitchen, but looked suited to make a meal if you wanted to save some money.
Chris's place was a great option for my friend and I. it was the perfect size since we were barely inside and super close to the beach, bay & main streets of pb. chris was helpful with any questions or problems that arose. we had a great stay and would absolutely stay here again.
Our stay was great! This place is in the perfect location. Close to everything we needed in PB! Thanks Chris!
Chris' description made it very easy to get in and get out of his place, when I had a problem I emailed him and he fixed the issue right away. The distance to the beach & restaurants is unbeatable, would definitely recommend staying here!
The lender was really responsive in regards to contacting me and answering all my questions. The house was very clean and easy to find. The location is 3 blocks from the beachside and near grocery store. Overall it was a great experience.
The location of the studio could not have been better! We walked everywhere. It was as pictured... The room is very basic with only a few pieces of furniture and no decor, but it was perfect for a quick budget stay for two people. We enjoyed how quiet it was and liked the birds chirping. My only complaints are that the mold on the drywall in and around the shower needs attention, it's unhealthy. Also the patio furniture is old and covered in spider webs and we couldn't use it.
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.
