Why Alisa Pedersen chose North Pacific Beach
We think it is the best place in San Diego to be. And once you've seen it, we think you'll agree. You can read the wonderful reviews of our studio vacation rentals to confirm the uniqueness of this area.
What makes this House unique
Walking or bicycle distance to everything you need. San Diego is very hilly and this is one place you truly can walk to the beach, stores and restaurants, bars and live music.

The owners were very responsive and the house was ready early for our arrival. It is a great location walking distance from the beach and restaurants. They also have bikes that we rode all over town and provided a parking spot. They were gracious enough to let us stay late on the day of checkout to enjoy the weather. Super trip thanks for your hospitality.
Great place to stay! Highly recommend it.
Very cozy and clean. When we arrived we had chips and salsa and margarita mix awaiting our arrival. Not to mention we were minutes away from the beach as well as restaurants. Definitely will plan to stay again when we are in the area!!!
Perfect Pacific Beach House
We went to PB for a weekend getaway, and needed more room than a hotel with a toddler and 4 adults. I am SO thankful we found this perfect place! From the start, Alisa was great with communication. When we arrived at the home, there were chips and Margs to welcome us. But that wasn’t even the best part! The home was adorable, great yard and room for our daughter to run and play. They had bikes in the shed which were so fun to ride down to the beach!
The next day we spent at the beach (which is only a 5 min walk) and they had everything we needed- beach chairs, toys, towels, etc. we don’t surf but there were things for surfing too! This is a perfect place in relation to the beach. Not too close, but close enough. Lots of cute coffee shops and cafes that are in walking distance.
The house has everything you need for a perfect weekend. It was clean and spacious, stocked with necessities and dishes. The beds were super comfortable and we slept very well.
We absolutely loved the home, the area, and the hosts. It made for such a great weekend and we will certainly be back!
The construction mentioned was no bother at all, we honestly didn’t even notice that it was going on.
Overall WONDERFUL experience. Thank you so much Alisa and Darren!
We come to PB at least once a year. This house was a quick walk to the beach, coffee shops, and restaurants, but away from the noisy fray. We brought our 100lb hound and our Aussie - it was a perfect place for them as well with a grassy yard to sniff around. Our awesome hosts had margaritas and chips/salsa waiting for us when we arrived. They are right next door if you need anything, and very responsive, but not intrusive at all - really didn’t notice they were there at all. Would highly recommend!
Some good, some need for improvement
The good - The homeowners were lovely and attentive, and the oranges from the backyard tree were fantastic. The restaurants were great with a coffee shop, grocery and taco places close by. The construction next door did not bother us even though it was literally 5-10 feet from our bedroom walls.
The challenges - The house was adequate but in need of some TLC (smelled mold? in the bathroom, blinds were dusty, hair in the bath sink, den electrical outlet had no cover plate, 3 of 6 kitchen bulbs were burned out, TV remote didn't work, etc). Not trying to be picky, just honest. The homeowners were available when we texted and tried to remedy issues. They were responsive and positive. I appreciated that.
Thank you for your input. We will certainly attend to the items you mentioned.
good place to bbq
The home is in North Pacific Beach, just South of La Jolla in a quiet residential neighborhood, easy walking or biking distance to the beach, board walk, shops and bars and restaurants.
