Located in the heart of Pacific Beach just three blocks from the shore and Crystal Pier in San Diego, California. HappyNest is a home away from home where memories are built to cherish a life time.
The name comes from the private rooftop patio NEST and the general HAPPY mood everyone is in when they visit the condo at the beach.
The fully remodeled 1400sqft HappyNest features three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms, able to sleep up to 7 adults and 1 baby. A beautiful combination of travertine and walnut flooring will put your allergies at ease and set the mood for a relaxing vacation. HappyNest has a full kitchen, gas barbeque, dining area, as well as a spacious living area and private rooftop patio, each with a gas fireplace. The kitchen is fully equipped with granite countertops, a full size fridge, gas stove/oven, microwave, pots/pans, dishes/glasses/utensils, cooking/grilling utensils, wine bar. Pantry and fridge items are free to use.
Traveling with little ones is made easy with our complimentary crib, high chair, and baby gates. Full size washer and dryer are located on the second floor of the condo.
Wireless internet and Netflix are included. Beach toys for your enjoyment are stored in the garage. Parking space located in rear of building. Sorry, no pets allowed.
When you stay at the HappyNest, you can leave your worries behind. Including your car! Endless beach activities including surfing, boogie boarding, roller blading, sailing, paddle boarding, rowing, wind surfing, kite surfing, fishing, snorkeling, scuba diving, biking, people watching, (and if you're really adventurous...jet pack rentals!). Sprouts Grocery, Trader Joe's, and countless restaurants and bars are within just a few steps of the door. This really is the PERFECT location for vacation.
Imagine spending the day on the beach listening to the sounds of the waves crashing on shore, the song of the sea gulls, or even surfing the day away. Then stopping for dinner at JRDN while watching the sunset. Walking back to the HappyNest through Garnet Avenue and grabbing an authentic Italian gelato at the Gelato Bus Stop and finally reaching the NEST to enjoy the daily summer fireworks from the rooftop with a glass of wine or an ice cold beverage. This is normal daily life at the HappyNest! : )

Crystal Pier: You can walk here from the condo. Its at the end of Garnet and has amazing views of the ocean. Many fisherman hang out on the pier, so the kids might get to see a few fish (and sometimes a sting ray!) caught off the pier.
Pacific Beach: There are stairs to the sand at the end of Felspar. The closest public bathroom is either a couple blocks north or couple blocks south. The bathroom a couple blocks south is at the main lifeguard station on the shore, which might be fun for the kids to see. Also, there is a large pelican statue kids love to climb on.
Grunion Run: From April to June, there is the “grunion run” where small grunion fish swim ashore to lay their eggs from ~11pm-3am along the San Diego shore (mostly Pacific Beach and La Jolla Shore). There are a few flashlights on the bookshelf on the second floor of the condo you can use to search for them at night. Sometimes a few show up early or late.
Boardwalk: There is a nice boardwalk along Pacific Beach connecting to Mission Beach and wraps around to Sail Bay. There is a stroller in the garage you are welcome to use during your stay.
Sail Bay: This is the bay you see from the rooftop south of the condo. It is about 5-7 blocks south. The water is very calm, but the sand is a little more rough. There is a nice kids park at the south end of Fanuel called Fanuel Park.
Short Drive north:
La Jolla Underwater Park: This includes the Children’s Pool and the Cove where many wild seals and sea birds hang out. I think the kids would love to see the wild life. You can also see many Garibaldi (bright orange fish!) swimming off the shore. snorkeling and swimming are allowed. There is a short walk from the Children’s Pool to the Cove with many areas with access to the sand. There are many large flat rocks for kids to climb and play. sometimes you can find small sea life like crabs and little fish between the rocks.
Scripps Aquarium in La Jolla: Features a seahorse hatchery, hands on tide pool for kids, and many exhibits with different kinds of fish, jellyfish, octopi, etc.
Coronado Hotel: Historic Hotel on Coronado Island (which the Emerald City in Wizard of Oz was modeled after!). The hotel is gorgeous and has restaurants and gift shops underneath. You can rent 4 wheel bicycles nearby that have seats for the kids. There is a short boardwalk along the shore and a few cute gift shops in the city.
Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: We are a local Pacific Beach family who absolutely LOVE the neighborhood. We purchased the property as our personal vacation retreat and fell in love with the area so much that we decided to permanently move here and share our HappyNest with the rest of the world! Sharing happiness is good karma.
Why the Owner Chose Pacific Beach: Pacific Beach is the best beach neighborhood. It is less expensive and more dynamic than La Jolla and much more fun and beautiful than Mission Beach. It is centrally located and very close to Sail Bay, so close that we include it in our daily evening walk. PB is very vibrant, with endless restaurants and bar and a stimulant night life. All the main San Diego attractions are within short distance, and there is always something interesting to do for every age group.
The Unique Benefits at this Townhome: When you stay at the HappyNest you can forget about driving. Beach, bay, grocery stores, restaurants, bars, shopping, drugstores, are all within steps from the property. You can also enjoy public transportation or the CAR2GO service that covers the area.
