Perfect vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family spent a week together in San Diego and this house was perfect for an amazing vacation. The location is awesome. Some people in our party had a car, but we did not and we didn't need one at all. The beach and bay are only blocks away. There is a Ralph's grocery store about two blocks away and many restaurants, bars and shops all within an easy walk. Also a bus stop a few blocks away made for an easy trip to La Jolla, other areas were easily accessible by bus too.The house has two parking spaces around back, street parking looked hard to come by.

The house was very clean and everything was in working order, plenty of pots and pans in kitchen and plenty of towels etc. Ryan was very accommodating when we showed up early with our little kids after a cross country plane ride and welcomed us in for a quick tour and to leave our bags as they finished up readying the house.

My kids loved the "triangle room" with sloped ceilings, My In laws enjoyed the large airy Master suite with large bathroom and we enjoyed having the balcony room with sunlight coming in and access to roof top hot tub and (sea world) fireworks viewing. One bedroom is downstairs and has an attached full bath, my sister in law found that one helpful for tending to her baby. The upstairs 3 bedrooms share one bathroom (4th upstairs room is master with private bath) only thing that would have made the house more comfortable for our party with small kids would have been at least one bathroom with a bath tub, the three full bathrooms each have a shower.

The back yard area is beautiful and relaxing, lots of seating areas, gas BBQ and shallow pool made it tempting to stay at the house all day. The rooms are large and even with a larger party we never felt cramped or short on space. This house is great, Ryan is an accommodating host and I hope to be able to go back to stay again someday, next time two weeks!

A great location for a Christmas family reunion

  • 5 of 5

The house provided the perfect setting for a family reunion, Christmas gathering, and tourist activities for eight people comprising three generations. Beaches, groceries, and restaurants were all close by. "Downtown" San Diego activities are about a 20-25 minute drive away. The VRBO description of the house seems accurate. Ryan (the owner) made checking in (and out) very simple, and is quite pleasant to deal with. Hope we are able to return to this house on a future visit to the area.

Great experience in a beautiful home.

  • 5 of 5

A family vacation with 4 children and 3 grand kids. It was a great home for us and Ryan was very accommodating to our needs. This was the first time we have done this as a family and will do it again. When we go to San Diego again we would pick this home again. Conveniently location to the ocean, bay, stores, and grocery stores. Had a great time in a beautiful home.

Wonderful Stay in PB

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed a fantastic week in Pacific Beach for a family reunion over Thanksgiving. We made great use of the gourmet kitchen to cook many family meals. The pool table entertained all ages 4-85! The bikes and beach gear were a welcome convenience. We would absolutely return for a summer week to enjoy the pool and backyard more thoroughly. Great sunsets from the rooftop deck. Thank you for sharing your home with us, Ryan.

Fabulous Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We searched for the perfect place to bring our 3 adult children and their significant others together for four days and this property exceeded all our expectations! Our needs included - at least 4 queen size beds, activities at the house and within walking distance and a great kitchen. This property has it all and much more! We played pool, watched football in the living room, walked on the beach -both the bay and ocean, cooked together in the large kitchen, ate together in the dining room and outside on the gorgeous backyard patio, swam in the pool and loved the sunset views from the roof-top jacuzzi. I'm a photographer and love to post "real" photos for a vacation review to show others how the property really looks....but the photos of this property are very accurate! It's really as fabulous as the photos show! We hope to return next year for another reunion. The owner, Ryan, lives close by and if we needed anything, he was there to help. Thank you Ryan for sharing your beautiful home with us!
