Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

The Tourmaline House is the stylish, relaxing getaway you've been looking for. It's a real house, with a backyard, located in Pacific Beach within walking distance to explore the beach, bay, shops and restaurants without the need of a car.

With top-quality furnishings, a private backyard retreat, and amenities like bikes, Wi-Fi, baby items and beach gear, all included – you can relax in the privacy that only a true home can have.

We can accommodate up to 8 guests and 2 dogs in our home. The entire house is wheelchair accessible, and we've had several handicapped guests to date.

The Master Suite is a luxurious retreat with a King size bed, two closets, cable TV and an indulgent large bathroom finished in travertine and glass tile. A dual sink vanity separates the spacious walk-in shower on the right from the enclosed toilet on the left. There is enough space in front of the bed to add a pack’n’play and easily walk around.

The Queen Bedroom is next to the Master Suite and sleeps 2 in a queen bed.

The Kid’s Bedroom sleeps 4 guests in 2 twin over twin bunk beds.

A large full bath on the hall has a separate dressing area with a dual sink vanity and a real Jacuzzi.

Enjoy full access to a stocked kitchen, enclosed grassy backyard with barbecue, parking for 2 cars, WIFI, entertainment center in living room with cable, blue ray player and surround sound. Beach gear is included: chairs, umbrella, boogie boards, cooler plus 2 bikes, beach wagon and scooter. We also have a portable crib and a baby chair.

The house sits just 2 blocks off the beach (Tourmaline Surf Park), a 5 minute walk. This part of the beach is the north end of Pacific Beach, a local's paradise, as the tourist crowds concentrate further South.

A 3 minute walk from the house you'll find Turquoise St, with a grocery store and numerous shops and restaurants. You will also be equally close to cute cafes and restaurants on Cass St. Easily reachable on bike are the beach boardwalk and Garnet Avenue, the center of the beach nightlife.

We will provide you with a detailed interactive map with lots of local tips - favorite restaurants, clubs and shopping, scenic bike-drive rides and seasonal events to enhance your San Diego experience.

We also have a 3-bedroom town home in Pacific Beach available. Please check out the Felspar Townhome, VRBO listing #295172

About The Owner

I am a visual artist and mother of 3 little beach-loving kids. Originally from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, I moved to San Diego in 2003 and fell in love with this wonderful city. Other thing I enjoy is telling people about all the cool things San Diego has to offer.

The Owner purchased this house in 2011

Why The Owner chose North Pacific Beach

Pacific Beach is the best! The most fun beach neighboorhood, far less expensive than La Jolla, much more interesting and functional than Mission Beach. The beautiful Sail Bay is also nearby and you can easily include it in your bike ride. A variety of restaurants and shopping are all within walking distance. It is also the epicenter of San Diego's beach nightlife. For all this, PB is the perfect laid-back beach location and spares you the driving. All other main San Diego attractions are within short distance. The Tourmaline House stands out in the neighborhood as one of a few brand-new single-family homes in walking proximity to the beach. The minute I drove by and saw the new construction work, I called my realtor and made an offer! So glad I got it: )

What makes this house unique

Comfortable. New. Modern. Our home and furnishings are top grade and guests love this! They tell me 'This is so much better then what we had last summer'...

Add to this a fantastic location and an enclosed grassy backyard. I don't know of any other beach house that can even compare...

Awesome Stay! Everythig was Perfect.

  • 5 of 5

This home was absolutely beautiful and everything we needed was available for me and my family. We had both sets of grandparents and our two boys - 6 and 4, and our Siberian husky, and everyone was accommodated without an issue. Everything is in close proximity from restaurants, to the beach to the grocery store and gas station! Thank you Juliana for being an awesome host. Can't wait to come back for our future holidays.

Great property. Spacious and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time here. Perfect California weather. Good location, out of the really busy part but close enough to walk everywhere including the beach. You are close enough to La Jolla today include that for dinner. Easy drive to Downtown San Diego.

Nice and clean

  • 5 of 5

Overall a great house to stay in. True to most beachhouses there is no AC. This made nights a little difficult as San Diego experiences higher temps year after year. We followed the advise of the homeowner and opened windows.

There was plenty of room for 10-12 of us to hang out and visit with one another, no problem.

Proximity to beach and shops is great!

I would stay here again!

Wonderful house and great location!

  • 5 of 5

The house was well maintained and perfect for my family and two small kids. The off street parking was a plus and it was great to be within walking distance of the beach, restaurants, and shops.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying here. The beach is close and it is nice to walk to the grocery store Gelsons which is a very nice store. We ate at a place called lualania I might have spelled it wrong and had a delicious breakfast.

As for the house it was very nice and cozy and my grandkids loved the bunkbeds. They also loved playing in the backyard.

on another note I left some of my medicines there and Lupe the housekeeper was so nice and got it for me and we met her and she was just so nice about it.

So yes we would stay here again

Nice home, great location 4.5/5

  • 4 of 5

This home worked really well for us. We were a family of 6; my husband and I, my daughter and her husband and two kids in their early twenties. The house provided easy access to San Diego Zoo, Torey Pines, La Jolla, and the beach. The house is on the quieter side of the beach which we preferred. We were able to walk to the supermarket and to restaurants in the local area. Having a driveway to park in makes it easier than other rentals where you would have to street park. The owner responded to emails quickly and gave pointers on things to do in the area.
