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.

Swimming pool heated to 80 deg

***SPA TEMPORARILY CLOSED DOWN***

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 North 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!

  • 5 of 5

Ideal location within walking distance of numerous restaurants and stores. Property was clean, amenities were as described in the listing, and unit size was perfect for the two of us (we stayed for seven nights). Property is within reasonable driving distance of downtown, Coronado, northern beaches, and so we felt that our vacation was a perfect mix of relaxation in Pacific Beach and exploration of surrounding areas.

Quiet, clean, comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Just had my third visit to Dean’s condo. I love watching surfers from the living room, and sleeping with windows open and listening to the crashing waves. Daily walks on the boardwalk are lovely. Mission Bay and Ralph’s grocery are just minutes away on foot or by bike. Dean even provides helmets! Birding books, binoculars, lots of games and beach toys, novels, and a well-stocked kitchen make staying in as enticing as going out. The bed and furniture are quite comfortable for when you need to rest up from all your Pacific Beach adventures. I'm already looking forward to my next trip!

Great location - right on the beach!

  • 4 of 5

The condo was easy to get to, had secure parking and was right on the beach. The condo unit is roomy for a couple - and could accommodate one or two small children with them. It has everything you need for your stay including beach needs. The owner was very responsive to us and was interested in making sure we had a good stay. The view from the large living room window is great when you are up near the window, but from the kitchen or dining area you look at the roof of the building next door - this was my only disappointment. The building itself is older but clean. The pool and hot tub are in the back of the building. There is an elevator from the garage and lobby, which is a bit tempermental - and does not work at all during windy conditions - which happened to be when we were leaving - so we had to lug our suitcases down the stairs. Overall, it was a great stay at a great price. You really can't beat the location if you are interested in the beach, surfing, or just being part of the great PB vibe.

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The place was great. Steps from the beach and within walking distance of dozens of great places to eat and drink as well as shopping if that's your thing. The pier was fun to walk on. Twice we saw dolphins. I recommend walking the beach north during low tide. There lies a wonderment of tide pools where we came across sea cucumbers, crabs, snails and were told there are sometimes octopus. Very cool. The apartment was well furnished and clean. Being avid bikers in the city we live in, we were very excited that the property had bikes. They are fine for cruising the lovely boardwalk however don't anticipate going any where to far. We made the mistake of biking to La Jolla, beautiful area, rough bike ride. Take the convenient public transportation or get a lyft. Thanks Dean for the wonderful vacation.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the review! You are right about the bikes. They are single speed beach cruisers and any kind of hill is a challenge.

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.
