About Dave P. Martocchio

Thank you for taking the time to look at my condo. I have been living in Pacific Beach since I was nine years old, 1975. I went to all the local schools, even U.C.S.D.. I bought this condo in 1992 when I first became a teacher using a downpayment that I had been saving throughout my childhood. The condo became my bachelor pad. It was my home base where I stored my surfboards (I am a surf instructor), my music equipment (I am in a few church bands), and my photography equipment (I do photography part time). I had actually converted the bedroom into a music/computer studio so I slept in the living room. I loved the location because I would skateboard, walk, or bike all over P.B. to eat, shop, and surf. I loved waking up on Saturdays, getting on my bicycle with my surfboard, surfing at the end of Diamond St., then riding over to Taco Surf for something to eat and then to Mr. Frosty for dessert.

I have outgrown the condo and now I want you to have the opportunity to live the beach life that I lived for twenty years.

Why Dave P. Martocchio chose San Diego County

I bought this property because I love the convenience and location of Pacific Beach. It is walking close to everything I need on a daily basis and a few minutes drive to everything in San Diego. In addition, I grew up in Pacific Beach for 17 years before I bought the condo.

What makes this condo unique

The unique benefits to this condo is the numerous activities and amenities found in and around the condo as mentioned in the other areas of this site.

My stay for July and August this summer was excellent. Dave sees to it that every need is met. The addition of the air-conditioner was well needed and very appreciated! I am planning to return next summer, (health permitting), Even the neighbors were no bother after all. Thanks Dave, you're a perfect host!!

Owner's Response: We hope you come back. You were five star renters. There really is so much to do in San Diego and so much to do within a mile of the condo that it would keep you busy for months.

Home Away From Home!

  • 5 of 5

We were welcomed personally by the owner who takes great pride in his condo. The unit is immaculate, and Dave makes sure his tenants have all the essentials to get things started -- toiletries (in a basket with a welcome note), coffee, etc. Bicycles (four) and surfboards (two) are available (no additional charge) too! Location is perfect -- a healthy walk to the beach but right around the corner from a shopping center that literally has EVERYTHING! We stayed for a month last summer and are coming for two months this summer! Thank you Dave!

Owner's Response: I do try to meet every guest that stays at my condo. If I can not make it my wife usually can. We like to be three for check in and check out to be sure that everything is just as the guest would like it. We are always available to help with any problems. The condo is in a very convenient location allowing you to walk to get everything you need. The beach and the bay is just a few blocks away and an easy, just about flat ride on the bikes. We are glad you are coming back. We have had quite a few guests come back. Some many times.

Awesome Place!

  • 5 of 5

Second time staying here just me and my wife. I would recommend this to anyone. Dave is super helpful and will do anything to help you out he's a really nice guy. You right by everything in pacific beach around a ten minute walk to the beach all the restaurants and bars. The pool is right by you and a vons is within walking distance! They are pretty strict with the quiet hours as long as you're not getting too loud they usually don't mind. Everyone else staying here that I met were super nice as well. As I said I would recommend this place to anyone.

Owner's Response: This couple stayed for their honeymoon and came back again. We are very glad that they enjoyed their stay. The location is walking close to the beach, shopping, restaurants, bars, the bay, etc. You do not need a car to stay busy in Pacific Beach. We have bicycles for you to get around town on. Pacific Beach is mostly flat so the ride is nice.

Owner's Response: This couple is actually the second couple to honeymoon at our condo. It is a great location with so many things to do within walking distance. They commented to me that they loved going on bike rides and walks on the boardwalk at the beach. They also told me that they loved all the great places to eat. We hope you come back for an anniversary!

Great location within walking distance to beach.

  • 5 of 5

Condo was very clean. Listing description accurate. We had five people sleep for a short period of time. Three adults and two children. Futons were adequate. Was close to everything; really no need for a car. We walked to the beach daily. Many restaurants within walking distance. Grocery store within walking distance. Landlord was very helpful and answered all questions. There was more noise than we expected but quieted down late at night per the regulations. Very secure property, and security guards on duty 24/7. There were bicycles provided AND two surf boards. We did not use them, but we certainly could have. There is a heated pool and hot tub, both of which we used frequently. Would recommend this property.

Owner's Response: You really don't need a car in Pacific Beach. You are within walking distance of the ocean, the bay, shopping, tourist shops, etc. and it is all without hills. The noise was probably from the remodeling of the unit upstairs and people at the pool. During the summer people like to use the pool and BBQ. It can also get loud during major sporting events as people cheer for their favorite teams.

The condo is in a very quiet complex. The neighbors will complain if you are loud day or night. I have had complaints for vacuuming with the door open and for having people over for a house warming party. The security guards will enforce the quiet and all rules with warnings and/or monetary penalties. I have spoken to my neighbors and have told them to call me if there are any problems. Noise violations and/or any violations may result in early eviction from the condo without refund of rent and the loss of damage deposit funds to cover the cost of the violation(s). It is best if you go out and have a great time and then come home when you are ready to relax and have a mellow night. There are plenty of venues and events in San Diego to let it all out before you come home for some quiet rest and relaxation.
