About this listing
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 a surf pad in the heart of Pacific Beach, simple and older but kept nice and clean, and I just had the carpet, kitchen and bathroom redone. 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, and 3 blocks to Garnett Ave where there is a large number of bars and restaurants that cater to the college student and surfer population PB is known for.
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. The house is off the street on the back of the lot, you'll have a private patio with a hammock and bbq, and access to 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. 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 6PM, 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.
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.
