Property description

PLEASE NOTE: We have greatly reduced our rates, while we are having construction in our backyard.

This has been home to foreign exchange students for the past two years. They love living here and we love having them. We also have one other home, five blocks away that houses 4 students. (listing #856475) Both properties are available to students from January 1st - May 31st.

In the summer, it becomes the second story to our main house that is a vacation rental. (listing #563807), available June 1st - October 31st. This palatial rental is a 5 bedroom/3.5 bath and is perfect for gathering loved ones to prepare for off site events. We are able to bring in hair stylists, make up artists, massage therapists and yoga teachers to help you prepare for memorable events, such as weddings, parties and other celebrations!

In the fall, it is a light and airy rental of it's own. A perfect vacation rental for up to 6 people, available from November 1st - December 15th.

This airy and light loft is a sanctuary to relax into. The 13' ceilings and ample windows give it a spacious and roomy feel. You have everything you need, yet is not cluttered or cramped. It is well thought out and very organized.

There is a separate entrance and is very private from my main house. Nestled in a well established residential area that is predominantly original owners and natives of the area.

You'll feel at home and peaceful, for it's a great place to unwind and recharge your batteries. Yet, there are plenty of restaurants, stores and places for outdoor adventures within 4-10 blocks of our home.

With a fully stocked and equipped kitchen and several grocery stores within blocks, you can eat in and relax at home.

It comes with it's own washer and dryer for your convenience and savings!

Our weather is ideal for outdoor dining on the balcony off of the kitchen and sun bathing on the roof deck in the chaise lounge chairs.

Walk Four blocks west, and enjoy the best stretch of the beaches in Pacific Beach - well known Law Street Beach. It has a nice grassy bluff to watch sunsets from. Public bathrooms for your convenience. The surf there is gentle and small, ideal for young children and inexperienced beach goers. Yet, the surf just blocks to the North is more enticing for those water lovers who want to hit up the surf.

This Law Street Beach is also the North end of the boardwalk that goes south for miles. It's a fun stroll along to see the fun PB has to offer and also great for bikes, making it a nice beach cruise.

The bay is due South of us and has it's own boardwalk that lines it in a full circle. More quiet and laid back than the ocean boardwalk and fun to see the sail boats glide along with ease.

The Master Bedroom has direct access into the bathroom. The rooms are comfortable, as are the beds. The entire loft (minus the bathroom) has an awesome real wood floor that is unique and wonderful to walk on. The bathroom has a beautiful tile floor.

Everything is brand new, just built in 2011 specifically for this purpose. You will feel so comfortable and that everything is so well thought out!

Keywords: Brand new, 2 bedroom/1 bath, industrial loft - home, that is completely private from main house. Sleeps 8, 13 foot ceilings, full kitchen, balcony & private roof deck. Truly takes your breath away. Four blocks from a family friendly beach, grass park and north end of the boardwalk. Walking distance to restaurants and shops, yet quiet here at home. A great place to go off and explore and come home to relax. Best of all worlds, a wonderful place to make memories that will last a lifetime.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We are a natives of the area and we have great pride in our beaches. We love our loft and home that we have created and our neighborhood that we live in. We are so grateful to not only be able to live at the beach, but to have found VRBO, so that we can share it with you. We love our home, we love our beach and we're excited to show you - our world here, it is paradise.

Why the Owner Chose Pacific Beach, San Diego, CA, USA:
This home has turned into a wonderful home for exchange students who are studying from overseas. We love having students here and they feel they found the best home out there! We love sharing this tranquil and lovely home. We're very proud of this amazing space we've created. You will feel welcomed into our home that we worked hard to create and have made it so special, all the while having autonomy and plenty of space and privacy.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We would say what our property has that is unique to others in the area are two main things. First of all, it's very quiet where we live. So, if you are looking for a place to relax, and not a place to party, then you found the perfect private get away. Secondly, you will feel entertained and satisfied, for this quiet and remote retreat is within blocks of beaches, the bay, restaurants and shopping. If you want the balance, of getting out and seeing lots of fun things, then being able to come home and relax in a quiet native setting....... allowing you to feel more at home than being a tourist in the thick of it, then you found the right place!
