Pacific Beach house description

Casa Grande of Casitas del Mar is steps to beach (2 min walk around corner): perfect getaway for couples wanting extra space, small families needing separate rooms for children and nannies.

Walking distance to restaurants and entertainment. Miles of beach and bay to ride bikes or run.

Casa Grande, downstairs, accommodates a maximum of 6 people with 3 bedrooms, 2 baths. The 500 sq. ft. deck off of the living room and the large enclosed backyard extend living space.

The property has been continually upgraded since 2012. In 2012, we tore out old kitchen and opened wall to living room. Now guests can visit while the chef is preparing meals. The new kitchen has all stainless appliances, high-end cupboards, Caesar stone counter, and tiled wall.

In 2013 we tore out old bathrooms and modernized them with glass and porcelain tile and granite countertops. Several doors and windows were also replaced.

We have just replaced the living room furniture and the kids room with new 'Tommy Bahama' furnishings: all adds to a nice fresh look.

The new washer and dryer gives guests the facility of keeping their clothes fresh.

In keeping with new trends in linens, we have purchased new spa linens and duvets. The kids room has traditional bedspread in Tommy Bahamas style. All blankets, throws, covers are washed on a regular basis.

TVs (4 flat screens) are in each bedroom and the living room; DVD players and CD players are in the living room and the kids’ room. Fully equipped kitchen. Gas BBQ is on the deck.

Porta-Cribs and High-Chairs are also available. Bicycles, Boogie Boards, Beach Chairs. Outdoor hot/cold shower. Wireless internet.

Casitas del Mar is a spacious duplex consisting of two residences with private entrances, decks, garages, and large interior rooms which provide privacy and space. Upstairs is not available for rent.

Location: Casa Grande is located in an excellent low-density family neighborhood. There are no bars or restaurants in the immediate vicinity: but a short 10 minute walk down boardwalk takes you to dozens and dozens of restaurants and night spots.

Noise ordinances (ie loud music, large noisy groups) are strictly enforced to ensure that neighbors who live and work year round are accorded respect.

Parking regulations are strictly enforced.

Please note that this is not a 'Party House.' We specialise in housing families.

                                  Pacific Beach is one of San Diego’s most famous family beach and surfing spot. Miles and miles of beach to walk on. Restaurants and Entertainment within walking distance. Sea World is a short 10 minute drive; San Diego Zoo is 20 minutes away. 5-10 minutes to La Jolla. 20 minutes to Downtown/Gaslamp. 15 min to Old Town


                                  Owner info

                                  Year Purchased: 1999

                                  About the owner: Pamela is a retired Learning Disabilities Specialist and French Professor. She additionally manages family residential and commercial properties. She takes great pride in maintaining an exceptionally clean property that is frequently updated...either with new furnishings or with major remodeling.

                                  Why the Owner Chose Pacific Beach:
                                  Pamela purchased since this property is located in one of the most coveted beach areas in San Diego. North Pacific Beach, specifically Law Street Beach/Palisades Park Beach, is known to locals and surfers more than tourists. The neighborhood homes are large on bigger lots, so high density is not an issue. Neighbors are friendly and know eachother. Return guests soon become part of the neighborhood. This property is special due to its size. The exceptionally large enclosed back yard is great for families with small kids. The large 500 sq ft deck is perfect for dining or relaxing in the sun. The newly remodeled kitchen opens into living room and promotes socializing. Bedrooms are large and comfortable. Newly remodel bathrooms include one bathtub/shower combo (main bath) and one shower (master)

                                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                                  This property which is just around the corner from miles and miles of beach allows residents to not be subject to noisy crowds but gives them access to the beach. Restaurants and entertainment is just minutes away down the boardwalk.
