Your comfortable home base on a very quiet street in north Pacific Beach. Only a few blocks from the beach -- easy walking or biking distance to everything you'll need.
Newly-updated home has TWO MASTER BEDROOMS, each with queen bed and new linens, tile floors, private bathrooms, lots of light and nice separation of space.
In the front bedroom, French doors open to a private fenced patio with lush landscaping and seating for 4. The back bedroom opens to a second patio with a fully fenced yard with fire pit and BBQ, and patio set for 4. Oversized one-car garage, so parking is never an issue, and a full-size outdoor shower off the garage.
In addition to the fully-stocked kitchen, you will find a full AT&T CABLE TV package on flat-panel tvs in each room with secure high-speed WIRELESS internet and VOIP phone service. There is a full-size WASHER/DRYER in the garage.
Beach cruiser bikes, boogie boards, surfboards, ice chests, beach chairs/towels/toys are in the garage for your use. Port-a-crib and high chair available by special request.
Easy 5 minute walking distance to the long, beautiful stretch of sandy beaches from Tourmaline and Law St surfing spots just north of Crystal Pier to all points south and the lively boardwalk, with a small grassy park, clean bathrooms, and lifeguards at the foot of the street. Tourmaline and the Bird Rock area of La Jolla are just blocks to the north, with more beaches, the Cove, tidepools, shops, restaurants, Torrey Pines, the Birch Aquarium, and UCSD. Express bus to UCSD a few blocks away on Mission Blvd.
JUST MINUTES from Sea World, the San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park, and Mission Bay. Easy freeway access makes sightseeing beyond the beach a breeze.
Hop on one of the beach cruiser bikes (or tricycle for the littlest one) for a ride through the neighborhoods or on the boardwalk along the beach just a few blocks away.
When the sun goes down, enjoy roasting marshmallows in the fire pit or barbecue on the patio (propane or charcoal).
PLEASE NOTE that this is NOT a party house -- perfect for families and small groups. It is in a safe, quiet neighborhood and we'd like to keep it that way. Sadly, to avoid potential allergy problems, four-legged family members are not allowed.

I grew up surfing and playing all along PB, La Jolla and Del Mar, and always dreamed of owning my own beach house...now it's my neighborhood!
Rowena purchased this House in 2006
Why Rowena chose North Pacific Beach
The location is amazing, in a quiet neighborhood with fabulous neighbors, and close to everything -- just park the car, then walk everywhere! Being close to the water without dealing with the crowds and surrounded by locals makes this a win-win opportunity. I get up early in the mornings and walk to The French Gourmet for fresh chocolate croissants to savor with coffee on the patio when everyone wakes up. Latitudes is a fun "locals" hang out just around the corner for philly cheesesteaks, watching sports with friends and a few games on a pool table. For dinner, walk a couple blocks to Enoteca Adriano for some of the best Italian food in San Diego! We also walk to The Fishery for fresh fish filets to grill for dinner back home. The best evening? A quick stroll to the beach to catch a sunset and maybe a glimpse of the green flash - haven't seen one yet, but I keep trying!
What makes this House unique
Did I mention there's a private yard and two patios for enjoying our fantastic SoCal weather? It looks small from the outside, but is surprisingly comfortable and 'big enough' inside, with privacy and quiet that can be rare in a beach community. This isn't a typical rental -- it's furnished like a home, with custom furnishings and original artwork, so you can relax and get comfortable immediately. There's also a one-car garage for your car because you won't need it once you're settled ... everything you need is walking or biking distance away. We also provide beach cruisers bikes, surf boards, boogie boards, even a few wetsuits in a couple of sizes. And since I live nearby and like to stay here as often as I can, I keep it well stocked. I can also loan items from my other house as needed to fill your requests.

Well-equipped, nicely furnished property. Walkable to Pacific Beach, not LaJolla
Very comfortable, nicely furnished, convenient/safe neighborhood about 10 min walk to beach, 15 min walk (5 min on bikes) to Pacific Beach boardwalk & restaurants. Rowena has provided everything needed for a relaxing vacation. Unfortunately, a sudden problem with the kitchen plumbing required us to move out. Rowena relocated us to another property and our vacation went on as planned. She was helpful and responsive throughout.
Perfect San Diego getaway for my family of three!
We just recently got to spend 7 days at this darling beach house! It's nestled in a wonderful, clean, quiet neighborhood. We would pack up the wagon every afternoon and walk to the beach. My three year old daughter loved having her own room and bathroom, and so did we! The beds were comfortable and everything was clean. We fell in love with this property and are already planning our next visit! It had everything plus more of what we needed and wanted. We were so sad to leave this awesome place!
I'm always thrilled when guests have such a nice visit -- and you were wonderful guests!! It was my pleasure to meet you, and host you at our house. (Even the weather cooperated!) I hope the rest of your trip goes well, too.
Thank you for being so sweet to work with. You are always welcome back -- I would love to watch your little girl grow!
Very clean and comfortable, great location, beachy atmosphere! I loved it!
Myself, my son and daughter-in-law, and two children came to Rowena's beach house in June. My grandchildren are 5 months and 4 years old. We loved, loved, loved it! The house is so comfy and had everything we could possibly need and more. The beach cruisers got lots of use and there was even a tricycle for my granddaughter. She rode it in the back yard every day. Speaking of which, the property is so secure we could leave the back door open and my granddaughter just came and went without us having to worry if she would wander off too far. It's a bit of a trek to the beach, probably 8 blocks? but we didn't mind at all. We got our exercise in and the neighborhood and surroundings are beautiful. Speaking of neighborhood, we didn't hear a peep while we were there. It was so quiet at night which we wanted. We traded the close location to the beach in for a quieter place.
I didn't need Rowena but once to find out the lock combination for the beach cruisers but when I texted her she was lightening fast to respond. She also left us some treats and personalized the experience with little gifts for my grandchildren. So thumbs all the way up for Rowena and her beach home...we can't wait to come back again!
You were such wonderful guests! It wasn't necessary to clean up after yourselves as you were getting ready to leave, but the housecleaner said to say an extra thank you for helping with the laundry and dishes. That was extra nice of you. :)
I'm so glad you enjoyed yourselves, especially the kids. It thrills me when guests enjoy it to its fullest. The beach is 0.4 miles from the front door to the sand...a little over 4 blocks, and I agree, the trade off for the neighborly peace and quiet is worth it -- and the exercise never hurts!
Thank you again for being such great guests ... I hope we get the opportunity to share San Diego with you again.
It perfectly meet our expectations and had everything we needed for our 3 month long stay in SD
We spend almost 3 months at the house and really enjoyed the location in a quiet and nice, family-friendly neighbourhood close to the beach. As a family of four, we found that the house had everything we needed - fully equipped and nice and clean - and Rowena was sweet to bring an extra bed for our 4 year old son.
Before coming to San Diego we didn't know this area, but we were so happy that we ended up in Pacific Beach at Rowenas house. We can only recommend this place!
A great visit!
Rowena stayed true to her rep as a great hostess! The cute little house is perfect for an extended stay, ideally located in a quiet neighborhood, but not far from main thoroughfares to get places quickly. We'll be back again in a couple years!
I'm excited you folks enjoyed your visit to San Diego and your stay with us. It was a pleasure to work with you and I surely hope to see you in a couple of years as well. Until then we will be waiting for your call. Thanks again!
Perfect location-Perfect vacation!
This was my first time booking with VRBO. Rowena was quick to respond and I could tell from the start, she would be great to work with. Everything was exactly as she shows in the pictures +++. Having the beach cruiser bikes, the boogie boards, and other beach items was a huge plus! Great to get the car off the street and into the garage as parking can be challenging on the weekends. Pacific Beach is such a fun town to shop and eat and the beach was fantastic and so close. Rowena was so quick to take care of any need we had and we really appreciated her very much. It's very personal with her and I liked that. Next time we go to SD we hope to stay here again.
It helps to have great guests! I wish our schedules could have matched so we could have met -- we had so much fun just talking on the phone! I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay. I enjoyed sharing "my" beach with you. Have a great summer … hope to meet you next time!
Less than 1/2 mile from front door to sand at the top of the boardwalk.
