Overview

About the property

2,200 Sq Ft, 3 Bed/2.5 Bath Home With Stunning Ocean, City Light, & Bay Views

Welcome to San Diego Vista! Enjoy panoramic ocean, city, night light, and bay views from this stunning vacation home in a highly coveted North Pacific Beach neighborhood bordering the Birdrock area of La Jolla. Start your day with a killer espresso at the Turquoise Cafe just a short 10 minute walk away then continue on another half mile to Tourmaline Surf Park beach to catch your morning set (Wavestorm boards provided if you don't bring your own ride). Or maybe you prefer a leisurely stroll through the charming Birdrock area of La Jolla, also just a short one mile walk/bike ride away. So much to choose from just minutes from this beautiful and beautifully situated vacation home.

Our 2,200 sq ft, 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath home features two expansive decks with amazing views of the surrounding area so you may not even want to venture out. Decorated in a contemporary style, no detail has been left to chance. The main, 500 sq ft deck is perfect for entertaining and features very chic and comfortable furniture from Restoration Hardware, stone dining table with seating for six, a high end natural gas Dacor grill, pyramid patio heater and a natural gas fire table for those cooler, San Diego evenings. Challenge your family members to a game of table tennis on our Kettler aluminum ping pong table. Step inside the slider to our large living room with hardwood floors, large sectional sofa sleeper and 50" HDTV equipped with a media server with hundreds of movies and TV shows at your beck and call.

Our spacious dining area merges seamlessly with our living room for an open, great room feel, and provides ample seating for dining in. The kitchen was remodeled in 2012, features all stainless steel appliances and is fully stocked with everything you could need for your stay. A powder room and laundry area toward the front of the house rounds out the downstairs living area.

Upstairs you will find a massive, 300 sq ft master bedroom suite with its own private, 250 sq ft deck with even better views of the coastline, bay, and cityscape. Stylishly decorate and furnished with a king size bed, this space is a true sanctuary. Down the hall toward the front of the house, two additional bedrooms share the 3rd bathroom. The first bedroom sports a brand new Serta Posturepedic queen bed, while the slightly larger, 3rd bedroom at the front of the house is furnished with 2 full/double size beds. The house comfortably sleeps 8 guests and can accommodate an additional 2 on the sofa sleeper in the living room if needed. Both secondary bedrooms are equipped with 32" HDTVs connected to the whole house media server with access to hundreds of movies and TV shows.

In the garage we have all manner of toys for your visit, including the aforementioned 8' Wavestorm surf board, a 5' Sushi surfboard, 2 Body Glove boogie board, 4 Tommy Bahama beach chairs, beach umbrellas, cooler, Frisbees, and beach bags. For a little indoor fun, throw down the gauntlet and challenge your family to a friendly game of foosball or relive your youth with our retro arcade classics including Asteroids, Joust, Zaxxon, and the true original -- Space Invaders. You can optionally rent our 6 cruiser bicycles to cruise the town in style.

This is truly a magical place in a magnificent area. You won't be disappointed.

Please note that this property is privately owned and managed and primarily offered as a 'family rental'. We do not rent to groups under 30 years of age and rarely to unrelated adults under 35. The home is in a fairly quiet neighborhood in North Pacific Beach that is more 'La Jolla Birdrock' than 'Mission/Pacific Beach'. If you are looking for a PB 'party house', look elsewhere.

About Drew Rudman

Having a small family of four that loves the comforts of home when we travel, we have been enamored with vacation rentals for almost two decades and now own three vacation properties, each with something unique to offer our guests. It all started with our mountain property in the Lake Tahoe area which we have been offering since 2000 and hosted hundreds of guests. We added our charming beach bungalow in Santa Barbara in 2013 and that has been such a big hit, we are replicating the effort with this beach area property on the border of North Pacific Beach and La Jolla.

Drew Rudman purchased this house in 2014

Why Drew Rudman chose San Diego County

This was actually the first property we looked at when looking for a place in the North Pacific Beach/La Jolla area and the 750 sq ft of decking with panoramic views of the ocean, city, and bay sold us on it immediately. Being walking distance to dozens of cool spots and the beach was just icing on the cake.

What makes this house unique

Being on the border of North Pacific Beach and the Birdrock area of La Jolla gives you the best of both areas. Pacific Beach offers a lot in the way of 'youthful' fun with many bars and restaurants and a crazy assortment of places to hang out and take in the San Diego experience. But if you'd prefer a relaxing stay with a lot of style and culture, just head a few minutes north into the stylish and upscale community of La Jolla and it's amazing village and beaches.

Wonderful view from the two deckings

  • 5 of 5

Very nice property with everyhting you need for a fantastic holiday. The house was fully equipped even with a baby bed and a high chair and all the stuff you need to spend a wonderful time at the beach. The whole house was very well cleaned. The contact with the owner was very friendly and he was very helpful when we had some questions or even some problems with the tv programs. The property is in a very quiet area and close to wonderful beaches. We are a family of 6 persons from Switzerland travelling with a 9 months old baby Girl. Seaworld and San Diego Zoo are located very close to the property and wonderful places to be with children

You Wont regret staying here!

  • 5 of 5

Ever rent a place and cross your fingers, because of previous past bad experiences where the pictures didn't live up to reality? I can tell you without question that this place will not disappoint you. Drew clearly cares about his clients and it shows. The attention to detail is impeccable. Want a great book to read? Pick one from a huge selection. Want a great view? Just go outside onto one of the 2 fantastic decks. Want to disappear for a few minutes? Go out into his garage (on and yes it one of those garages with that nice decorative epoxy paint you could eat off) and play his vintage arcade games. The carpets are brand new. The decorative touches are out of a magazine. With Drew, you don't get nickeled and dimed and he even leaves complimentary kitchen supplies when possibly. Lots of nice quality dishes- all those kinds of things that go beyond the "basics". This place is only a few minutes from the beaches so you can take one of the bikes to get there easily. The area feels really save, and secure. I could go on and on , but the bottom line is that you will love this place and you are taking absolutely no risk in renting it. Enjoy!

Beautiful home, great for family vacations.

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautiful, spacious and easily accessible. We stayed for a short family vacation with two kids and three adults and it was great. Unfortunately it was raining while we were there so we didn't get to enjoy the deck much, but I will definitely be visiting again just to relax with a book on that deck and experience the amazing view! The video games in the garage were great for kids and adults alike. The house was well equipped and having a washer and dryer made our stay so easy. The media center available on the downstairs tv was great, although we were unable to use it on the other tvs in the house. That wasn't an issue since we didn't spend a ton of time at the house watching TV anyway! Drew was so accommodating and easy to work with, and extremely responsive. We will absolutely rent this house again in the future. Thank you!

Great house

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this spacious, well-located, nicely furnished, and well-maintained property. The owner was easy to communicate with and very responsive to our needs. I recommend it as a top choice for a San Diego stay.
