Marlin Beach Walk 645 Law Street, San Diego, CA 92109

With ocean views, quick and easy beach access, and all the comforts of home, this San Diego vacation rental is an ideal place to stay during your beach getaway!

Located just 85 steps from the beach (but who's counting?), this Pacific Beach vacation rental is just down the road from the beautiful Palisades Park, and just beyond that are the gorgeous beach and the majestic Pacific Ocean.

With two bedrooms and one bathroom, this rental has a cozy and comfortable atmosphere that will help you feel right at home. Have a seat on the leather sofa or armchair in the living room and watch some cable on the flatscreen TV. You could also bring along some of your favorite movies to watch in the DVD player, or use the WiFi to keep up with work emails.

Just past the living room is a full kitchen, complete with lovely granite countertops, all major appliances, and all the cooking tools you may need to whip up tasty meals during your visit. Two people can sit at the breakfast bar, and the kitchen table has space for four people. While you eat, gaze out the window at the grassy backyard area.

Down the hallway you will find the full bathroom - with a tub/shower combination and more granite countertops - and the two bedrooms. The first room features a cozy queen-size bed where you will sleep soundly, as well as a small TV in case you like to watch a late-night talk show before drifting off. The second bedroom has two twin-size beds. Altogether, this home can comfortably sleep four guests, though we welcome up to five people as long as one person is able to sleep on the couch or bring a sleeping bag.

When you stay here you will also have access to a shared laundry area, which will come in handy during longer stays or if anyone manages to get their clothes a little dirty. You will also find two adult-size bicycles, boogie boards, and beach chairs available for your use.

Walk outside to the enclosed backyard to listen to the roar of the ocean and breathe in the fresh air. Use the gas grill to cook up a casual lunch of grilled chicken and veggies, or simply sit and soak in the sunshine.

With the marvelous beach so close, you will surely want to spend your days walking along the sand, playing in the shallow water, building sand castles, working on your tan, or even boogie-boarding or surfing around the waves. Within a ten-minute walk of this home you can reach many fabulous restaurants, so head south to Taco Surf PB for some fresh fish tacos, then walk a little farther to The Baked Bear for a custom ice cream sandwich! In the immediate area you can also find several more eateries and a market, and if you drive or walk along Garnet Avenue you will encounter all sorts of businesses.

Because you will be within an easy distance of both La Jolla and San Diego, you can drive in almost any direction to find fun! Head north to visit some beachside parks, the La Jolla Playhouse, and the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. If you drive down into San Diego, you will find a multitude of amazing activities, ranging from a leisurely walk around Mission Beach, a family visit to the incredible San Diego Zoo, or a trip to Balboa Park and the museums and cultural sites that surround it.

With such a wonderful location near the beach, ocean views, and many adventures nearby, come visit this lovely Southern California vacation rental and start packing for your laid-back coastal escape!

    This property is all about location - it's steps from the north end of Pacific Beach and pretty much everything is walkable. The boys appreciated the 2 beds. There's no air conditioning, but the ocean breeze keeps the property very comfortable. The beach chairs and extra towels were great to have. Both boys had surf lessons at San Diego Surf School - the kids liked it so much they surfed on their own the next day. Ana our property manager was super-responsive to us. The only downside is that the laundry wasn't up and running during our stay - a quick email to us ahead of time would have been appreciated. We definitely would stay here again!

    We enjoyed our stay. We had no issues with neighbors. It was quiet and relaxing. The beach is close and we were down there everyday. The boogie boards provided were great!! My kids loved taking them to the beach. The only con was the garage is small and we couldn't park our Armada in there but we were able to park right out front on the street.

    Love the location! However, the doors didn't seem very secure and could easily be kicked in which made me very nervous with my kids, the screen on the master bedroom looked to be partially pulled off so I had to sleep with the window closed for safety precautions and insects, there were literally only three spoons so I had to hand wash after every meal, the tv in the master bedroom malfunctions and will not shut off unless unplugged and there were quite a few insects crawling around every room. Also, I appreciated the toys in the garage but two bikes for a place that sleeps 4 is a bit dissappointing plus the bikes were too big for kids anyway.

    The location was great. Exactly what I was looking for location wise - Close walking distance to most everything including restaurants, beach, shopping, boardwalk, groceries, etc. Ideal for a quick trip because it is fairly private street and quiet for the most part in early Feb. Upgrades could be made with furniture inside and out but overall decent.

    Location is good, very close to the beach. It's quiet, but depends on neighbors. You can hear ocean.
    Garage is really for tiny cars, but plenty of street parking.

    The property and home seemed up to par at first. But after the first nights stay we noticed the shower was clogged and smelled and had feces floating in the water. We had to call maintenance to have it handled and no one had even showered or bathed yet. Then, later that evening I noticed a couple of roaches in the kitchen and took pictures. Also the following night I noticed a roach run across the floor so I smashed it enough to kill it. Believe me I took photos, and I would put them on here if I could. Not to mention when anyone used the dryer it sounded like someone put a brick in it. Not pleasant when you are asleep at 7am!

    This location is amazing!!! You are literally a block from the beach which is a perfect beach for kids. You also can walk to restaraunts, shops, etc. we were so excited. The actual property is basic but nice. They also have all kinds of fun sand and beach gear to use. They don't have alot to offer in there kitchen and there is NO extra anything, but your there for location. We were happy and ready for an awesome vacation. However after about two hours the smell of the cleaning chemicals dissipated and you were knocked out by a horrific smell of cat urine. So bad it bothered my kids which are all under 8. I tried to e-mail the company a couple times but nobody ever responded. Opening the windows helped but in days when it was hot and you came back from the beach the house was hot and all of it smelled even worse. It was difficult to sleep with such a strong smell. The location was so amazing we still had a great trip but i would definitely ask about the smell and be cautious since they are not a responsive company.

    The place was nice and comfortable. It was close to the beach and Sea World. The margarita machine was a nice touch. The only downside was the parking. Although there is a garage, it's a very tight squeeze for a car and we were unable to use it due to other parking in the alley. Nothing would keep us from coming back though.

    We had such a nice stay here, two adults and two boys ages 12 + 15. The unit is just a few steps from Pacific Beach and everything you need is walking distance. The beach toys and towels provided were very nice touch. This neighborhood is fantastic, reminiscent of Santa Cruz CA. There is something for everyone - the beach for the 12 year old, Belmont Park for the teen, and kitchen, location, parking and the promenade along the water for parents. The beds were comfortable and everything you could need is provided in the kitchen, garage, and laundry room. It was especially nice to have two twin beds in the second room for our two tall kids, without need to share a double, or for someone to sleep on a sleepcouch in the main living space/room. There was ample street parking during our stay but it was nice to have the garage for night time. What a great spot and what a great home away from home!

    This property is ideally located steps from Pacific Beach and mere blocks from convenient Mission Blvd shopping. This is a no frills property perfect for families (twin beds!). We really appreciated the beach towels, boogie boards, beach chairs, and beach bikes provided. There were some minor maintenance issues (broken dishwasher being the most inconvenient) but otherwise this was a great value.

    My friends and I stayed here for a few days to celebrate my birthday and we had the best time! It was prime location, just a few steps from the beach, and walking distance to lots of restaurants and bars. It was very clean and just as pictured on the website. There were 2 bikes in the garage that we rode, with additional bikes for rent down the beach. We didn't need any help or need to contact Vacasa at all, but they emailed me a couple times just to make sure! :) It was a great experience and I'd definitely recommend this rental to friends.

Quiet area, lots of surfers coming and going, but still a small friendly atmosphere. Extra chairs and boogie boards in the garage along with some beach toys. Had everything we needed to make the stay great. Thanks!

    Vacasa made my anniversary weekend very special. The staff was very helpful and patient when I called many times with questions upon making reservations and after. The home was beautiful, clean, and felt like "home". The location of the home is perfect. It's literally steps away from anything that you need, from restaurants to the beach.

We took advantage of the bikes, beach chairs and other beach toys. The place was clean, spacey and very comfortable. The staff was really accommodating, we called 2 times and they answered our questions right away. I will be booking this location again!!
