About Marlene

I love to travel and meet and communicate with people of all different cultures and to shop! I like nice things....example my property in Pacific Beach that is in a great and convenient location. Originally I purchased it for my son who was attending San Diego State College. After he left college and just very recently I decided to fix it up as a beautiful vacation rental. I also have a property on VRBO that is in Palm Desert, CA (

Everyone that rents this property for 1 month minimum (the HOA says minimum 1 month) will love it and will want to come back. I enjoy catering to my renters, since I believe that you are # 1 and want a complete vacation. You can reach me 24/7 except for when I'm sleeping, but you can leave a voice message and I'll return your call. You can also text or email me anytime.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Marlene purchased this condo in 2005

Why Marlene chose North Pacific Beach

I like the fabulous convenience of this property with the best security. Besides walking to the beach there is so much more you can do that are steps away from the condo. Shopping at Von's, is basically connected to the building. There is also a new Trader Joe's market. Restaurants are in the same shopping center a few blocks away there is every restaurant imaginable. If I need something for business there is a business center, or FedEx downstairs

You are a short walk or bike ride to the beach.

What makes this condo unique

I like that it's quiet, has 24 hour security, can walk to the beach, many restaurants and conveniences that are are steps away. The complex is in a resort setting, with swimming pools, jacuzzi, BBQ's, exercise room, billard, tennis courts, library, study room, entertainment area all in a beautiful setting. You will find that this condo has it all!

Pacific beach and San Diego, great destination.

Some comments on my stay at San Diego, Feb 11 to March 12, 2017 #703681

I would like my comments to be understood as coming from a place of ressponsibility, not of blame. In a rental, there are 3 different stakeholders : the owner, the intermediary (VRBO), the renter.

WE liked the location : close to stores, the beach, short distance by car to just about every parts of the city. We enjoyed San Diego tremendously. The condo was well equiped in utilities : paper, towels, spices and more. You come in, it is ready to live in.

We experienced less pleasant moments.

1- In my exchanges with the owner I had specified : « 66-72 couple, like the pool, reading, enjoying the outdoors. I’m a handicapped person using either a walker or a scooter. Are all of the premises accessible? » The answer was YES.

a) Had I been alone. I would not have had access to the lobby. 3 steps. The first instructions received by email : « Go to the lobby to get your keys! »

b) the pool side, the lounge and adjacent deck are not accessible.

c) the bathroom door is not standard size. (Not wide enough for a walker)

The description of the ad should specify clearly that this dwellling is not equiped for handicapped person.

There was a break in communication around this issue. In my view, there is a joint responsibility to deliver proper information. VRBO claims it is part of the HomeAway Family. This banner includes Homeliday and Abritel. I have used the latest many times in France. It has a clear classification of accessibility options. 1- with cane, can climb a few steps, 2- with walker (deambulator), 3- wheelchair, scooter.

The owner did not respond properly to my questions.

Had I received the exact description of the premises, I would not have chosen this location.

Other inconveniences;

1- No evaluation of the state of the condo when you come in : broken table on balcony, broken B&D toaster (ceramics element), very filthy couch (we had to cover it). Same at exit.

2-« New monthly water shut off » Condo newsletter. Came in after the facts. Left cold in the shower once, and with 3 loads of wash in a locked laundryroom, the second time. Not pleasant.

Hoping these comments may serve to deliver more accurate informations.

Owner's Response: I humbly apologize for any inconveniences you have had. If you had communicated this during your stay, I would have immediately corrected it. My goal is to have you 100% satisfied. I checked with 2 listings and they both wrote that it was wheelchair accessible. I believed this as true instead checking further with management. I'm truly sorry for that. Did you know that besides the 2 stairs going to the lobby, on the left is a handicap access with no stairs, just a ramp and then there is the elevator. The building has 2 elevators. Had I known your concern, I would have called VRBO to find another rental for you. I will now put it in listing that it is not wheelchair accessible. Regarding the couch, I have requested the housekeeper to come back again. The toaster, I had replaced with a new pan. I have not noticed that the patio table was broken, because I had used my computer on both tables and also enjoyed breakfast. I will check again and have it repaired, if needed. Thanks again for letting me know your concerns. Again my goal is that each and every renter is 100% happy. Glad that everything else met with your expectations It is a great condo, location and the building amenities are the best as you had said.
