The beaches are within driving distance, as well.

The home itself is furnished with sleek decor and modern furnishings, providing a comfortable atmosphere. In the living room, you'll find a variety of furniture to relax with a book or board game, and a flatscreen cable TV for watching DVDs.

Outside, a patio table, umbrella, and a gas grill are great for enjoying the sunny weather, and your dog will love playing on the grassy lawn (please note a one-dog limit and small, nightly pet fee).

About Vacasa, CA - San Diego County Office

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.



Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.



Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

Hotel vs Home

  • 5 of 5

We did not stay at house very much. We did enjoy the extra space and the two bathrooms. We stayed in a suite on the first part of our trip which had two rooms and one bathroom. This property was much more comfortable.
