After a long winter, what better way to relax than by staying in a beautiful Southern California dream home-away-from-home? Take that beach vacation you've been longing for with a stay at this four-bedroom, three-bathroom San Diego vacation rental!

This incredible new Pacific Beach vacation rental is located in an energetic beach community. You're just a few blocks away from several delicious local restaurants and the great shopping on Garnett Avenue! The well-known attractions of San Diego are just a short drive away. Check out the San Diego Zoo, Sea World, and Belmont Park during your stay for some memorable fun that guests of all ages are sure to enjoy!

This home is perfect for eight adults and up to nine guests total with children, and would be wonderful for a family getaway or a small corporate retreat! This luxurious home features updated amenities, modern decor, and a thoughtful layout. The living area has a cozy sofa that invites you to curl up with your favorite book in front of the gas fireplace! The designer kitchen has everything you'll need to cook a homemade meal. The dining table is set for eight, but an extra leaf and two extra chairs in the pantry mean that all of your guests can enjoy dinner together. Patio seating and gas grill offer additional options if you feel like dining al fresco!

One bedroom is downstairs while the other three are located upstairs. The downstairs bedroom is open and airy, with two twin beds. Upstairs, you'll find the North bedroom which overlooks the beautifully landscaped yard! Enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning from the privacy of your own balcony. This room has a queen bed, flatscreen TV, and great windows that allow natural light to fill up the room! The North bedroom shares a bathroom with the other upstairs bedroom. This bedroom features two twin beds and was designed with children in mind. The master bedroom has a king bed, south-facing balcony, and a jetted tub in the private bathroom. A sleeper sofa in the living room provides an additional place to rest!

While the decor of this home is absolutely beautiful, a lot of attention was paid to the practical accessories! This beautiful beach house is equipped with six beach cruiser bicycles (each has a lock so you'll feel safe taking them to the boardwalk), boogie boards, and beach chairs. The outside deck is located above the garage with a gradual staircase that leads to the patio seating and gas grill. Wireless Internet is provided so you can keep up to date on what's going on in the office - or upload pictures to Facebook so everyone back home can see how much fun you're having on vacation! A washer and dryer will keep your clothes clean and fresh, no matter how long you stay.

Escape from reality with a stay at this new, luxurious Southern California vacation rental. Thanks to the updated amenities and ideal location, you'll find yourself wanting to return again and again!

    We stayed at The Beach Comber for a ladies' yoga retreat. It was the perfect location, nice and quiet and walking distance from the beach. The home was beautiful and in great shape. We would definitely recommend it.

    My friends and I came for a girl's trip and were blown away with how amazing the house looked. Very well taken care of and the decorating was on point. Walking distance to plenty of restaurants and the beach. If you don't feel like walking, there are bikes for a quicker trip. Overall, we loved our stay.

    This was the best experience we have ever had in booking online for a vacation property. Vacasa was new to us and we were a bit nervous as my brother had just rented a stay in San Diego that was terrible. From beginning to end this experience with Vacasa was a 10!

    The Beachcomber is a beautiful, spacious, well-appointed home with a great beach/surf vibe right in the heart of Mission Beach. Every surf-side highlight is just a beach cruiser ride away! Close to restaurants, pubs, surf, family fun,; our stay at The Beachcomber could not be topped! We will definately be back!

    Fantastic rental unit. The owners clearly put considerable thought and effort into making this a wonderful vacation spot. The furnishings, kitchen, and linens were all top notch and made it feel like a real home. Our favorite was the backyard and rooftop patio. The beach was just a few minute drive from the house - walkable for adults, but more convenient to drive with kids.

    The Beach Comber is absolutely wonderful! The property is beautifully decorated, spotless, cozy, in a quiet neighborhood, very close to the bay, zoo, Sea World, Balboa Park, great eateries, and the home is completed with extra special touches! We spent a lot of family time in the large, well stocked, high-speed kitchen! OMG! The property is the perfect vacation home! Vacasa thought of everything to enhance our vacation experience! The property also included books, board games, six adult bicycles, DVD, multiple patios, a fantastic furnished deck for ourdoor meals, etc!! Thank you, thank you, thank you for making our San Diego vacation FANTASTIC!!

    This is a beautifully decorated home just a mile from both the beach and the bay. We were two families with 8 people total. The bedding configuration is perfect so the kids didn't have to share a bed. Keep in mind, though, that one of the upstairs bathrooms is a "jack and jill", shared between a kids room and an "adult" room (queen bed). The master bathroom is also a little weird in that there is no door into it from the bedroom and no shower door (just a large shower alcove). Other than that, the house is nicely furnished and has a great open floor plan on the lower level.

    This is a beautiful home. Only problem; there were 6 beach bikes, and 10 of us. So when we went to the beach, we had to drive- less than 10 min. to the beach, but 20 minutes to find parking. It's about a 25 minute walk to Pacific Beach straight down Thomas Avenue.
    Beds were very comfortable. Towels and sheets soft and clean. Plenty large enough for everyone to relax.
    We did bring our own food for healthy, hot dinners each night. The kitchen was great. Had enough pots to cook for our 2 families (6 kids, 4 adults). Dishwasher worked great & was used every night. There is a food store just a few blocks away.

    If a third bedroom had a normal queen/full sized bed, that would have made this a 5 star experience. I would recommend this place to anyone as long as they dont have more than 2 adult couples. For us, we probably would need to find a different property just due to beds as we do a yearly trip with 3 married couples.

    Three generations, infants to seniors, had a wonderful time. The downstairs open floor plan was very conducive to preparing meals, talking with each other and watching the kids. Great kitchen and large table for meals together.

    Bedrooms are large and well sound proofed. Bathrooms were roomy. Everything was meticulously clean.

    We appreciated the high chair and there was even a packnplay for an infant.

    We also enjoyed the outdoor eating patio which comfortably seated 10.

    Stayed here 4 nights and we had a good time. The house is 16 blocks from the beach but within biking distance. It is closer to the bay where we rode to. Quiet neighborhood and recently renovated house. The laundry was upstairs making it convenient. Cable TV, board games, and books for reading gave us enough to do when not out exploring. We had a great time, the kids liked the bunk beds. Would do it again.

    I just got back from a wonderful weekend in San Diego. Our group, nine female friends in our 30s, was extremely happy with the house. The house was beautiful, updated, clean, spacious, and well-decorated. The house comfortably slept all nine of us, and we had space to spare. We BBQed one night, eating out on the great deck. We were very happy with our experience. I'd definitely return!

    We were really impressed with the accommodations and condition of this rental unit. The property seems to have been recently remodeled and all of the furniture and fixtures were in excellent condition. This is a great location for families with kids especially with the bunk beds and trundle bed. The outdoor deck space on the garage and grilling area were a nice touch for family dinners. The garage space is tight and will not fill larger SUVs, but there is plenty of street parking.
