This unit has a great location. Condo located at 4667

Ocean Blvd, San Diego, CA

92109. Map search he location to see it's fabulous location. 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

surfer's that enjoy the surf break

there. The beautiful sounds of the ocean are easily heard from the

unit. There is one dedicated

parking spot (6' height limit) and Wifi internet access. Very

convenient location to the San Diego

airport.

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 is an

eccentric community, which ranges from

the casual surfer to the tattooed punk rocker to the average college

kid. Needless to say it is 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 roller blading.

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. We advise arriving early for t

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just got back from my another stay at Dean’s condo. Nice place to come home to after sightseeing, and a wonderful place to be on those days you just don't feel like going out. Easy views of the ocean, beach, boardwalk and surfers make staying in VERY easy. Bed and furniture are very comfortable. Kitchen well equipped with rice cooker, crockpot, Foreman grill. Nice selection of seasonings. Cookbooks, birding books and binoculars, novels, big stack of DVD movies. Cards and board games too. Felt like I was staying at a friend's house. Bikes (and helmets!), walking distance to Ralph's grocery, Mission Bay, Tuesday farmers market (great Indian food!). I felt safe walking the boardwalk and beaches early morning and in the evening too. Dean was very easy to work with and refunded my security deposit quickly. Recommended for: Families with Young Children, Sightseeing, Age 55+.

Quiet, clean, comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Just had my third visit to Dean’s condo. I love watching surfers from the living room, sleeping with windows open and listening to the surf. 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!

Wondeful escape

  • 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 incline is a challenge.

Oceanside Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The location was super right by the beach with a view of Crystal Pier, boardwalk and all the surfers. The unit was very clean and comfortable. Having a space in the underground garage was great. Everything we needed was there. We had a great time and will be back.

We found the unit to be exactly as advertised. There was some exterior renovation projects occurring, however, Dean had notified us about it in advance. If you want to spend time at the beach, this is the place. I would recommend guests check out the kitchen and bathroom cabinets before shopping, as it will save you in picking up some things at the grocery store. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 star is the bed was a bit uncomfortable. Otherwise, highly recommend this location.

Owner's Response: Thank you for posting a review. It is the first time someone has pointed out that the bed was not comfortable. I will follow up to your personal email to see what the issue is. Too hard? Too soft? It's a Sealy Posturepedic from Costco. I always try to get 5 stars!
