Overview

About the property

Fantanstic Ocean View/Fronting Condo in the quintessential CA Beach Community

Better Than a Hotel! Ocean Front/View!

Rental unit is directly on the ocean. The ocean is visible and there are no other properties between this property and the ocean.

This 3rd floor unit has a great location at 4667 Ocean Blvd, San Diego, CA 92109, USA. Web search the address to see it's oceanfront spot. Walk out the front door of the complex and be greeted by a stunning view of the Pacific Ocean or enjoy the most beautiful sunsets.

The unit's main window has a nice view of the Crystal Pier and the surfer's that enjoy the break there. The beautiful sounds of the ocean are easily heard from the unit. Very convenient location to the San Diego airport. The unit has Wifi access and a dedicated underground parking space (6'height limit).

Pacific beach is located off I-5 and Garnet Ave. The beach area south of Crystal Pier is known as Pacific beach. It is a two-mile stretch of sandy beach packed with people, fun waves, an active boardwalk and plenty of space to sunbathe. North Pacific beach is located north of Crystal Pier, a public pier good for strolling and fishing.

The city of Pacific Beach is vibrant and hip. The main streets of Garnet and Grand, which lead to the beach, are lined with shops, bars, restaurants and novelty stores. The Pacific Beach crowd really is unique and make for a fun beach experience. It’s an eccentric community, which ranges from the casual surfer to the tattooed punk rocker to the average college kid. Needless to say it’s a fun place to people watch.

The boardwalk parallels the beach and is lined with shops, restaurants, beach rentals and some apartments for the lucky few who get to enjoy a beautiful beach sunset from their doorstep and a crazy and exciting town just around the corner. The boardwalk is popular all throughout the day and a great place for cycling, jogging, walking or rollerblading.

Almost all water activities are practiced at this beach from surfing, to boogie boarding, swimming and skim boarding. Surfing is popular at this beach. The waves are fun and depending on the conditions can be suitable for all levels of surfing.

There are however separate areas for surfing and swimming. Flags are usually posted to indicate the designated surfing areas. Lifeguards are on duty year round.

About Dean Meek

Making your vacation excellent in every way is my #1 commitment and customer service and relations is something I pride myself in. Read my reviews to see that others agree!

Pacific Beach exudes the essence of a true California beach town with its brilliant, year-round sunshine and blue ocean swells that greet its sand and boardwalks. This small, colorful community blends an eccentric mix of surfers, local beach bums, college students, professionals, and families. A few blocks west of Pacific Beach, you’ll find a fun jumble of surf shops, taco stands, craft galleries, hotels and smoke shops flavored with a hint of tie-dye. The architecture here is varied, with 30s-style beachfront cottages next to large, upscale, earth-toned hotels and condos. Expect ultra casual and zero attitude in Pacific Beach. For a less crowded alternative, try the more protected waters of Mission Bay, located just four blocks east of the south end of Pacific Beach.

Dean Meek purchased this condo in 2008

Why Dean Meek chose Pacific Beach

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:

Between the ocean, the bay, and nearly 15 miles of bike paths — not to mention year-round sunshine — Pacific Beach offers a myriad of recreational activities for families, weekend warriors, and outdoor enthusiasts. Surf, swim, kayak, or body board in the blue waters of the ocean. Bicyclists, skaters, walkers, and joggers have miles of paved paths winding between the ocean and Mission Bay. The paths afford spectacular views of the beach and bay; they also offer up a slice of local life at Pacific Beach, including neighborhood basketball games, family picnics, Frisbee, and kite activities, and lots of outdoor barbecues. Sunbathing opportunities abound on the ocean, the bay, or a quiet grassy knoll. With the endless supply of ocean and sand at Pacific Beach, parents will never hear the words “I’m bored” from their kids. Pacific Beach is a saltwater playground offering all the activities kids love — building sand castles, splashing in the ocean, or (for bigger kids) romping through the waves on a body board. The beach isn’t the only happening scene in Pacific Beach. Shoppers will find dozens of funky, eclectic surf shops, clothing stores, smoke shops, and craft galleries along Mission Boulevard and on Grand and Garnet Avenues. You can rent surfboards, body boards, roller blades, and bicycles at shops located near Crystal Pier. Lifeguards are stationed at Pacific Beach year-round. Pets are permitted from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. and must be on a leash. Parking at Pacific Beach is easy most weekdays during the winter. However, it will be challenging on weekends and on any day during the summer.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was our first trip to San Diego and we had a wonderful time. The condo is in a great location - close to the beach, restaurants and shopping. It was equipped with everything we needed. My husband and daughter biked a few times and we all enjoyed the beach each day. Thanks! We had a very memorable stay and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place!

Great Pacific Beach Location!

  • 5 of 5

This location is on the north end of Pacific Beach, right on the boardwalk, but elevated for a great view of the ocean! It's always very clean, has a great side view of the ocean overlooking Crystal Pier. The kitchen provides most of what you would need to cook, and the main room is very large. Our son lives about 8 blocks away so this location has proved very convenient. Dean has always been very accommodating and helpful, and he returns emails promptly. Because our son is a head bartender at the Sand Bar & Grill we always tend to head south of the condo. The Sand Bar & Grill has the BEST fish tacos around. For an awesome, price is right breakfast, visit Kono's Cafe on the boardwalk. Be prepared for a line! We just love walking the boardwalk and beach!

Owner's Response: I'm biased of course, but I think I have the best guests! I've lost some of the personal contact with future prospective guests by the policies changes that don't allow me to see the phone number and email address of interested parties until after they book. In the 'good 'ole days' someone would contact me and I would start direct communication with them about what is being offered. That all changed this year. I either toe the line or find another platform to offer my unit. Past guests can just contact me direct to book using my phone number or email, but only clever new guests can find that information.

GREAT LOCATION

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay here in San Diego, this VRBO is situated right off the water with great access to the beach, walking, restaurants, and shopping. The building is a littler older but well maintained with a hot tub, pool, elevator and parking. The unit itself is a little dated but clean and functional. None of the suites in the building have balconies which is unfortunate it would have been nice to sit out and watch the sunsets but there are plenty of places to do that. The bed was comfortable and the unit was well stocked as far as the kitchen utensils and there is a dishwasher. The unit also supplies a couple of bikes but we unfortunately ran out of time and did not use them, too many things to do and see in the area. There are so many nice beaches in the area and so many great places to eat. It was nice to be able to park the car in the underground parking and the elevator was great when bringing the groceries home.

JUST AS ADVERTIZED!!!

  • 5 of 5

Unit is clean and well stocked for your vacation - Building is well kept and whether is other guests or permanent residents they were all friendly and welcoming - The unit is well with in walking distance to the supermarket, shops, restaurant & bars. We made use of the pool and jacuzzi as well as the bbq on the grounds. The location is great - 15 min ride to the heart of the city (Gas Lamp Dist- Seaport) only 25 min to Del Mar race track and Torrey Pines . This was our second time staying in Pacific Beach and we plan on coming back - When we do we will certainly look up Dean and his property for availability

Owner's Response: Thanks for staying! I certainly hope I have availability when you come again. Your review was informative and to the point. We love Pacific Beach so much my wife and I made it our goal to retire here. The condo will stay a vacation rental as we have bought a two bedroom place in Mission Beach to live in. Life is good.

Very nice condo. Awesome Location with Parking!

  • 5 of 5

Dean's condo was perfect for our family of 4. Our girls are 6 & 8. The condo is so much nicer than what the pictures show not to mention bigger than what we expected. We were very happily surprised. The bathrooms and kitchen are a bit dated and at some point may benefit from an upgrade, but rest assured the condo is very clean and very well maintained. The bed was very comfy and to our surprise the futon in the living room was also very comfy. Our girls loved it and we even slept on it a few nights and found it very comfortable. Dean also provided everything you needed to enjoy your days at the beach. The condo is perfectly located right on the boardwalk and I feel in the heart of PB. There's a rental shop 2 min walk away where we rented kids bikes for our girls and lots of yummy restaurants all just mins walk from the condo. We loved that the unit came with parking it made coming and going stress free and easy. There is some work being done on the building but by the time we arrived it really didn't affect Dean's condo or disrupt our stay. Great communication with Dean! The view out the living room window is so beautiful and when it is open you can hear the waves. My only feedback to Dean would be to at some point supply a couple of nicer beach chairs and younger kids size boogie boards. Overall we really enjoyed our week and enjoyed staying at this condo. Highly recommend it and happy to give it 5 stars. :-)

Owner's Response: Excellent review! I take note of the fact that I need to get better listing pictures. I took these myself. VRBO has also mentioned that higher quality photos equal more listings! A professional is needed. I also agree that the kitchen and bathroom are dated. It's the same cabinetry, counter top, sinks and fixtures as when we purchased the condo in 2007. I'm balancing keeping our rates low and capital improvements. It's a good idea to have more kid size boogie boards and better beach chairs. Thanks for writing such a descriptive review!

Great place to stay with a lot of amenities that other rentals don't have! For example.. boogie boards, 3 beach cruisers, beach chairs and so on. Dean was easy to work with and responded back quickly. Would definitely stay there again!
