About Isabelle Piccini

We have owned our beach home since 1964 and are happy to share this rare and wonderful location with guests. My mother has long been known as the 'Queen of Hospitality' by her friends and family, it is perfectly fitting to be involved in hospitality with her home.

We love the beach and grew up surfing the local break out front. Our view from the roof deck spans from Pt. Loma to Pacific Beach Point and is a fabulous place to relax and enjoy the sun, sunsets or stars.

Isabelle Piccini purchased this house in 1964

Why Isabelle Piccini chose San Diego County

Years ago when my parents parted ways, my single mother of 3 young girls took a big chance and bought this duplex across from the beach in the early '60s. The idea was we would live downstairs and rent out the top floor with the view to help ends meet, which has turned out to be the best idea she ever had. I am a native San Diegan and am thankful for growing up in such an awesome location. It is with great pleasure we are able to share this special location with people that would never have a chance to visit Pacific Beach in such a 'locals spot' sort of way.

What makes this house unique

I have traveled throughout the world and have decorated the beach house with treasures from around the world. The view is wonderful and our fire-pit on the roof-deck makes relaxing up top a treasured moment - very enjoyable. Order dinner to be delivered from some of our local favorite restaurants, Thai, Italian or Mexican and enjoy a memorable roof-top dinner - you will not be disappointed. Beach walks, sunsets, R&R! We offer daily maid service for and additional $50 per day. We offer a shopping service to have your vacation rental pre-stocked with your favorite food and drinks.

Great family vacation place!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a vacation/family reunion at this Pacific Beach rental 3/2/14 to 3/8/14. The house is beautiful, with an amazing rooftop deck; the beach a mere 1/2 block away. All amenities and appliances worked well. The landscaping is lush, with hummingbirds flitting about daily. Truly a lovely, well-kept rental in a nice neighborhood.

There was plenty to do in this area--beach activities (great surf beach!), biking, shopping, restaurants, etc. So you could stay here without a car if you wanted. We chose to rent a car to get to Balboa, Birch aquarium (amazing sea-horse exhibit), Botanical gardens, Torrey Pines State Park, etc. that are a little farther.

Last but not least, the owner Isabelle was very friendly and helpful. She guided us to a friendly local garage when my son's car had some issues. Thank you Isabelle! Hope to see you again.

Perfect place to spend with your family at Pacific Beach in San Diego

  • 5 of 5

The location was fantastic, just a short walk around the corner to the beach and beautiful park overlooking the beach. The house itself was ideal for the five of us (three kids). We rented the upstairs unit, which had a master bedroom with a deck off of it with ocean views. There were two additional, roomy bedrooms and a great loft space that my youngest slept loved sleeping in. The roof deck had incredible views of Pacific Beach and the pier off in the distance. There was also an enclosed porch area with a cozy bed to lay in while watching and listening to the ocean and enjoying the breeze. The house was well maintained and the owner who lived downstairs was very helpful in recommending places to eat and go. Overall, I can highly recommend this as the ideal place to stay in Pacific Beach. Hope to stay there again some day.

This was an AMAZING property!!! The views of the ocean in this home away from home is simply stunning...we already miss it! The layout of the home is perfect for two or three small families, the loft and extra day bed really helped in us being very comfortable with plenty of room to spread out. The owner welcomes you by making sure you have everything you need to unsure you have a fabulous vacation! Also, this home is within walking distance to everything you will need plus some!! We have stayed in this area for over 15+ years and by far the best home we have had!!

Thank you Isabel and Linda for sharing this beautiful home with us, see you next year!

Forever will love Pacific Beach!!!

Beautiful Vacation House

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property in June, and we had an absolutely fabulous time. This house was everything we had been looking for. Quiet neighborhood, walking distance to the beach, gorgeous roof top deck we could watch the sunsets from, a nicely equipped kitchen and comfortable bedrooms. We also loved Isabelle, the owner's mom. She gave us a warm greeting when we arrived, and was very helpful with everything. We think this vacation was one best ones we have had in a long time, and we most definitely will be returning in the future to enjoy this lovely house again.

Roof top view is stunning

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay at the Pacific Beach house! Hosted several get-togethers on the rooftop terrace. The onsite family member was delightful and helpful. One of the three bedrooms has a loft bed which I didn't realize. The loft bed coupled with the trundle equal the three twin beds described in the summary. Rooms are on the small size but who wants to be indoors anyway?!

The beach is steps away and lovely without being overrun and is family friendly. Out door showers and baths are right there.

Walked to many restaurants and lovely new organic market Gelson's.

Could not recommend this home and location more highly!
