Beach bungalow steps from the ocean & w/ incredible views!

Soak up the sun for a few days with this gorgeous two-bedroom San Diego vacation rental. With a fantastic back patio with ocean views, a gas fireplace, grill, and an easy walk down to the water, this lovely home will suit all of your beach needs.

Located just steps away from Pacific Beach and a few minutes' drive from Mission Beach and Mission Valley, this cozy Pacific Beach vacation rental is perfect for two couples or a small family to use as a relaxation retreat on the beautiful Pacific Coast! There's something for the whole family, including SeaWorld San Diego just a 12 minute drive away - you could practically bike there! Prefer for some exciting nightlife? The hustle and bustle of downtown San Diego is only 20 minutes away.

This San Diego getaway has a modern, beach-friendly feel with an updated kitchen and living areas that will make you want to open all the windows and breathe in the fresh ocean air.

You'll feel relaxed and comfortable as soon as you walk in with soft leather couches, a flatscreen TV, and gas fireplace to warm up to. The living room leads directly to the back patio where you can hang your beach towels to dry and sit back with a beer to watch the sunset. Right off the living room is the full kitchen with shiny marble countertops, plenty of cupboard space, and a dishwasher to make your next meal clean-up super easy.

Both bedrooms have lovely queen-size beds so four people can comfortably stay here (there is a maximum occupancy of five, if a child wants to use the sofa as a bed). Each room has two windows that let in plenty of sunlight during the day, and one has a small flatscreen TV.

The lovely bathroom has a matching marble countertop and shower where you can wash off all the sand after a long day of surfing, swimming, or playing. Want to get out and explore one of the best-known climates in the world without the gas mileage? This home has a boogie board, sand toys, and four beach chairs at your disposal. Ready to relax into the evening hours? There's cable and WiFi, so everyone will stay up-to-date on what's happening outside of your beach bubble.

San Diego is well-known for its surfing and water activities, and with Pacific Beach literally steps away, Mission Beach about a 10 minute drive, and the beautiful beaches and whale-watching points along La Jolla just a few minutes north, this home is the ideal place to get your beach fix.

There's plenty of options to choose from in San Diego if it's a bit rainy (doubtful!) or you're not feeling the beach for the day. The Columbia waterfront just 12 miles away has the famous Midway aircraft carrier museum ship as well as a host of other huge ships to check out. The San Diego Convention Center and Petco Park stadium are located just 20 minutes away downtown, and all the fun shopping, restaurants and bars of Mission Valley are just a few minutes' drive. SeaWorld San Diego is only four miles away - close enough for the whole family to bike there.

Whether you choose to ride the waves of the beautiful San Diego surf, relax on shore, or explore the diverse and beautiful city, this Southern California vacation rental will definitely put you at ease!

*Please note that all guests must be 25 or older unless accompanied by a parent or legal guardian!

Kristin S. Apr 2018
Perfect location, great beds, very clean.
Doug C. Mar 2018
Property was everything you need. The setting of the property offers a great view of the ocean. The location is easily within walking distance of shopping and restaurants while only being less than a block from the beach.
Tamela M. Mar 2018
This bungalow was perfect. It is quaint, quiet and close to everything. The beds could be a little softer but everybody sleeps differently. I am not complaining. I am thankful for a great time with my family at the Vacasa bungalow!!!
Greg R. Mar 2018
The condo is very clean and steps from the beach. A number of restaurants are within easy walking distance. The view from the front balcony is very peaceful and relaxing. Beach chairs are provided in the garage. If you have a compact car you can park in the garage, anything larger and you won't be able to. If you have the chance to reserve this condo do it, you won't be disappointed!
Christina B. Feb 2018
We enjoyed our stay, this condo has amazing beach views and is right near the water. It is perfect for 2 couples or a small family. We would definitely stay again.
Sheila A. Jan 2018
My husband and I loved this 2 bedroom apartment--clean, close to the beach, and with a nice beach view from the porch. The boardwalk in Pacific Beach/Mission Beach is wonderful for walking, biking, and skating. Ana the local manager was very helpful. On our last day the garage door didn't work, so we couldn't get our rental car out. Ana rushed someone over to help us.
Thomas M. Nov 2017
We very much enjoyed our stay here. Super close to the beach and an awesome view of the ocean greats you from the balcony and front door. Very clean and well kept. Would definitely stay there again and recommend it to friends!
Thanks Ana for great communication and checking on us to see if we needed anything. Super easy! Super friendly! No negatives here!
Melissa M. Nov 2017
My son and I stayed 2 nights - we were pleased with the location. Our only complaint were the beds - both of our beds were hard and lumpy, very uncomfortable to sleep on. I came home with a sore back.
Manager Response:
We are sorry to see this guest did not get great sleep here. The firmness of the mattresses are controlled by a remote. We are happy to assist guests with this if they give us a call. Thanks!
John T. Oct 2017
Loved the cliff and the boardwalk. It was wonderful to have bikes available to ride. So many good restaurants around. If you enjoy surfing you would win heaven!
Bernd G. Oct 2017
Top spot ! Near the sea. Near konos cafe! Near bus station. Clean place. Quiet !
Laura L. Oct 2017
This place is in a perfect location to enjoy the beach and all the local restaurants and bars. Love also that all the beach toys and chairs are provided, along with 2 bikes that are perfect to ride on the boardwalk and over to the bayside.
Carolyn R. Sep 2017
Perfect place close to beach.
Jennifer T. Aug 2017
Wonderful location, close to beach and walking trails and easy to get to many locations in San Diego Very clean. We were very happy and will be back to rent again. Ana, the property manager, is very responsive and helpful with any questions!
Amir P. Aug 2017
Overall a great property with a nice location and view. Beach gear provided is in need of replacement, (chairs and umbrella). We left behind 2 lounge chairs we had to purchase. They provide a wagon to load your gear to the beach which was wonderful. It is a short walk to the beach. Staff is helpful and the place is very clean.
R. Chris W. Aug 2017
Wonderful place to stay in SD
Margo H. Jul 2017
This Vacasa location is simply marvelous. From the close proximity to the beach to the apartment's comfort, I'd recommend this place to any family.
Amanda B. Jul 2017
We really enjoyed our stay at 647 Law Street. It is in close walking distance to the beach! The garage is rather small...don't plan on getting anything bigger than a compact inside.
Elissa F. Jun 2017
Awesome place, great view, location, clean, and quiet. I'd definitely stay here again!
Maria H. Jun 2017
This is the perfect spot for a beach lovers vacation. Located on the quieter side of Pacific Beach - great view of the ocean and sunsets! We stayed for five nights and there was lots to do for the adults and teenagers in our group. We appreciated the equipment provided and used the grill twice. We will surely keep this rental in mind for any future visits to San Diego!
Bethany P. May 2017
Great views and location! Not fancy, but has the basics.
Virginia C. Apr 2017
This was the fourth time we have reserved one of the Law St properties and the first time staying in the Whale Beach Walk unit. It has a great view and offers a bit more privacy than the others due to its location on the second floor. All of the units are very clean and laid out similarly. We used the grills and both were clean and worked well. The beds are not as comfortable as a hotel, but are adequate and the bedrooms have ample closet and bureau space. We will be back!
Nancey H. Feb 2017
My adult son and I stayed for 5 days, and we absolutely loved it! The views were awesome, and we loved being so close to the beach.
Shazia A. Nov 2016
it was very cozy place with best views easy most access to beach and all the restaurants and well cleaned and well kept place staff was quick to respond no delays very easy access to property and garage is plus its little tight to fit an suv but it does go in .bikes were added bonus over all experience was great . we are happy we stayed here thank you
Mike D. Oct 2016
Construction put the halt on our stay. Otherwise would have been great
Bill W. Oct 2016
We stayed at 647 Law Street. Good location, close to beach, shopping and restaurants. Condo was nice, and had everything we needed for cooking,.. etc. Was a little disappointed there was no grill, but all was good otherwise.
Michael S. Oct 2016
After 4 days of hearing the beach roaring, my wife & I were sad that we had to leve to continue with our adventure to see the whole US. We plan on trying to do our stay at the same Whale Beach unit next year!!! Loved it!
Laura L. Oct 2016
This was our second time staying here. Love the location and the view. If recommendations for improvements are made then, this is a top spot to stay.
KAREN J L. Aug 2016
Facility nice, about 2+ walk to the beach..Clean, comfortable, although some signs of wear & I was concerned if we'd be charged for spots on carpet, etc
Andy M. Aug 2016
This is our second year staying in one of these units on Law Street. Very clean, quiet and comfortable. Staff was quick to address the couple of concerns we had. Being within walking distance of the beach, restaurants, and shops was huge!
Gina F. Aug 2016
The location to the beach is perfect. The garage has everything you'll need for a day at the beach, which we really appreciated. The umbrella, beach chairs, boogie boards cooler and wagon to carry it all in were exactly what you would expect to find in a vacation rental by the beach. The outdoor patio counter was the perfect place to have our morning coffee and provided us with amazing sunsets each night. We really enjoyed the location-nice quiet neighborhood and walking distance to all the boardwalk attractions. We will hopefully be back!
Jordan C. Jul 2016
Great place to stay the view and location are awesome!!!
Karen I. Jul 2016
Great view, great location and great unit.
Joe P. Jul 2016
Our experience with Vacasa was tremendous. They were on top of everything, and provided amazing customer service. The property itself is great. Wonderful location and a great view from the deck to watch the surfers! It is worth noting that we were five of us...and the property really works best for 4. Table seats 4, 5th person has to sleep on the couch....not awful...not ideal. But, the view off the deck is truly amazing.
Curtis P. Jul 2016
Lots to do in the area, but best thing was just to sit on deck & watch sunset with a beer. Beautiful view.
Kathleen K. Jul 2016
Perfect location for relaxing by the beach. Sunsets from the patio/balcony were fantastic. Short walk to the beach. Will definitely stay here again.
Tatiana E. May 2016
I celebrated my 28th birthday here and it was the best unit out of all the other units. The view is amazing .. The beach isn't even a 5 minute walk. The unit has everything that u need to cook . There was no sofa bed though. Overall a great experience and close to everything
Sylvia A. May 2016
Very nice place to relax and admire the ocean.
Brian P. May 2016
Very close to the beach about a 2 min walk and you're in the water. Within 4-5 blocks of multiple eating establishments. Good location!
Laura V. May 2016
The condo was private and had a great outdoor bar to sit and have a beverage and watch the sunset. The beach was just a short walk from the condo -a perfect place for a romantic honeymoon getaway.
James R. Apr 2016
The property was clean and was in a great location. Very small garage, was able to fit a Yukon inside it but made it difficult to get in and out. The staff delivered the bikes and fixed a broken toilet seat within an hour of calling about them.
The garage doors were in need of some maintenance so it could be loud at times when they are used and may wake up a light sleeper.
Overall we were very happy with everything and would stay here again.
Karen P. Apr 2016
This is a wonderful place to stay! Perfect location and very nice place.
Karen C. Apr 2016
Steps from the beach. A private balcony with no next door neighbors- watch the action on the surfing beach and the sunset every night! Bike or walk the boardwalk toward Mission Beach. Restaurants and shops are all within walking distance. The place itself was very clean and comfortable. The beds were great. And a garage! It was more than we expected!
Monica C. Oct 2015
This unit in the complex is the only one on the second floor and has a wonderful view of the ocean and the spectacular sunsets. The unit is very clean and well kept. The area is very nice and we were very comfortable coming and going at late hours. We were visiting our son and he was an excellent tour guide. You must go to La Jolla to not only experience the extraordinary coast but to drive up the drives to the top to see the spectacular view of San Diego. We also went on the harbor tour in San Diego which was informative and a relaxing way to spend a few hours in the sun. Bring a lunch with you and have a picnic on board.
We will certainly choose this condo again.
Dadra N. Aug 2015
Loved this place
Monica G. Aug 2015
Absolutely loved it! It truly was home away from home! We'll stay here again in the future.
Staci L. Jun 2015
This property is a bit more north than we usually stay but close to grocery shopping and other restaurants we wanted to try. The view is amazing. The property is very clean. Some things to consider - some of the blinds are missing pieces - not necessarily a deal breaker but makes the place look run down. The ironing board does not have a cover and at second glance it was broken. The rental sleeps five but we were only provided one wash cloth for our two night stay. There are only four dinner plates - so as the mom, I opted to use two small plates for my meals. The description offered two bikes but there was only one. The cleaning people showed up at 10:56 - no big deal but did make me feel a little rushed for my 11:00 am check out. Luckily, we were doing final inspections and headed out. The rental process was very easy and no hassle. None of these things were deal breakers - If we were staying longer, we would have called to address the issues and I'm certain they would have been remedied. The view really is amazing.

We appreciate you sharing your experience with us. The Property Manager is aware of your comments and will address them as promptly as she is able. We are glad to see that you enjoyed the wonderful view!
Amanda D. Mar 2015
Would definitely recommend to others! Make sure you get this condo specifically since it is on the 2nd floor. This is the condo with the view of the Pacific. What a great view to wake up to every morning!
Manager Response:
Thanks for the fantastic review. We are really happy that you had such a wonderful trip. Please do visit Vacasa again soon!
Michael H. Mar 2015
This property was exactly what we were looking for, a rental close to the beach with enough amenities to live in. It was basic but very convenient, the garage was a great benefit in this neighborhood. This is a good value for the location!
Ashley V. Mar 2015
We had the best time, perfect central location and great size condo!!
Dale M. Mar 2015
Our situation was a little different than most travelers and we actually needed a pull-out sofa bed or a roll-away bed. The property description said that it could sleep five, if one uses the sofa. We incorrectly assumed that meant a pull-out or hideaway bed in the sofa. On one of my calls, I suggested that it may not be a bad idea for Vacasa to store a couple or more rollaways just for good measure. They can't cost much and to have a couple "available" might be nice for certain travelers or families. Overall, we were very pleased with the unit.
Manager Response:
Thank you for this review. We are sorry to hear that you had issues with not having enough beds for your group. This home offers 2 queens but does allow 5 guests total, with 1 sleeping on the couch. We do appreciate the feedback.
