Renovated 1945 Beach Bungalow with great indoor and outdoor living spaces. Enjoy living steps from the ocean in Pacific Beach. We are a 5 min walk from a hundred restaurants/activities and about ten minutes from downtown. Pacific Beach has the only boardwalk - its miles long and just a quick uber or bus ride from Downtown. Central location means Starbucks (and everything else) is 100 feet away.
We love to host. Our property has two houses on it and this is the south facing front house that we call home - behind it is a 4br house for other AirBNB guests. To the extent we're at in town during your visit, you will be most likely invited to join us on a trip to the beach, a local restaurant, or sharing a beer or glass of wine (assuming you're over 21). We are steps from great restaurants both fancy/affordable. Starbucks is directly behind the house as a great first stop, from there there are literally over a hundred places to go for food in the five blocks between the house and beach. Here's a sampling: list of places I love will be added later when I have more time.

The beach and bay are both right down the street, five blocks away, in different directions. And when you get tired of surfing, swimming or sunbathing... you can come back, relax and dry-off in the private back yard. Its a great place to BBQ.
Everywhere in Pacific Beach is walking distance from my place. You're 15-20 minute drive from Mission Valley's shopping and the famous Fashion Valley shopping area. Sea World is only a 10 minute drive away, you can walk to the Catamaran Hotel for their daily dinner ferry, Downtown is a little over 20min, and the international border (Tijuana) is around 45min.
If you are adventurous, you can go paddle boarding or kayaking in the bay, surfing (surf school has all the gear you need) check out Pacific Surf School or Surfer Girls Surf School, or snorkeling at the Cove in La Jolla. For the land loving, biking and hiking at nearby Mission Bay and the Boardwalk are both great. On my run around the bay every evening in the summer I see Sea World's famous fireworks show every night.
I am happy to help you figure your way around with maps/recommendations. Just ask!
Guests will have access to the whole house excluding the garage where we store some personal belongings. If requested and permission is granted. Tandem parking is in front of the house but if you have longer vehicles only one will fit. Our food and drinks in the house are available for guests but please try to leave some for us! If anything goes bad while we are gone feel free to toss it.
Interaction with guests
My wife and I live in the this house as well as an apartment downtown. Sometimes when both are rented we stay in one of our AirBNB guest rooms in the larger house at the rear of the property. We will not ever need access to the house during your stay except for emergencies as all personal belongings are stored in the garage. I work in Pacific Beach near our house and am typically working from 9:30AM-6:30PM. We are close to all our neighbors which means 11PM quiet hours during the week and 12PM on weekends are strictly enforced. You may see or hang out with other AirBNB guests who stay in the large house at the rear of the property a bit more than us but we look forward to greeting you and helping with anything you need.
No pets, parties, or indoor smoking. Heavy drinking, music, etc is not permitted. We ask that guests take shoes off to keep the floors and carpets clean for everyone. Feel free to use everything in kitchen and place in dishwasher once you are finished to avoid bugs coming in for a bite to eat. A maximum of 8 people should be on the property at any time with no more than 5 people after 11PM.
I am from Virginia, USA and my wife is from Istanbul, Turkey. After exploring the entire world we both fell in love with San Diego and now call the "finest city in america" home. We vacation to Turkey in the Spring and Fall and Cabo San Lucas, Mexico during winter.
