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 of individuals under 30 and rarely to those 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.

Great place to stay. My friends and I (8 adults) really liked how clean the place was, the great view and the location. Would definitely recommend it! Also easy communication with the owner (Drew).

Clean. Comfortable. Convenient.

  • 5 of 5

Drew's maintenance and upkeep of his home is five stars in itself. Drew's clear cut directions and guidelines were easy to follow and he was a great host. We comfortably slept 8, and with 3 bathrooms, there was never a time when we had to wait in line. The arcade kept us entertained as we unwinded after a night out. Not to mention, Gas Lamp was just a quick cab ride. The deck was a great space to enjoy the sun and conversation.

Drew's home is a great place to gather your loved ones to spend time in the home and to explore San Diego.

I recommend Drew and his home to anyone who asks where to stay in San Diego.

I was blown away by the balcony views. Our stay was like clockwork, all communication from Drew was helpful and timely. The home was easily accessible, clean, and comfortable. My friends and I had a wonderful time in San Diego for the weekend using this home as our home base.

Great Vacation Place

  • 5 of 5

Our group of friends stayed here during the labor day weekend with many activities planned. The location is in a prime spot in San Diego and close to all the activities that we planned. The place was well equipped with everything that we needed and the beach items came in extremely handy when our group spent a day at the beach. The view from the back was absolutely stunning. The retro arcade and the ping ping table gave our group countless hours of fun when relaxing at the house. We definitely would come back again and would like to extend our thanks to Drew for being extremely accommodating.

Great summerhouse

We had a great stay. The house was nice, clean and well equipped. We really enjoyed the evenings on the patio.

The beach equipment came in handy when we went to the beach. It was perfect.
