We stayed here from Nov 10-17, 2018 for our week in San Diego. We had just come from a week at Disneyland so we were excited to have a big house to come home to at the end of our days out exploring SD.

Its a beautiful house with literally everything you need ( well minus a cheese grater - I couldn't find that thing anywhere lol). You seriously have everything at your fingertips. They have thought of everything here. From the beautiful decor throughout to kitchen appliances to the boogie boards, bikes, beach chairs and sand toys; there is so much available to you.

The house is very well laid out, beautifully decorated, clean and definitely was something we looked forward to going back to at the end of our day. Beds were comfortable. The only thing that was tough for us is that there were two skylights in the kids bedroom above the bunk beds so my daughter was up at the crack of dawn everyday. It would be nice if there were some blinds or something to darken them but not the end of the world. We made due with what we had to make it a bit darker for her after our first couple of nights.

Pacific Beach is super close - like a few minute drive away, Shopping for groceries is easy with Trader Joes and Von's only 3 blocks away and its a quiet neighbourhood which was great for our trip. Seaworld is about 10 mins away and the Zoo is about 15-20 mins depending on the time you go. Legoland was about 45 mins and Mission Beach was about 15-20. This place is perfectly situated so that you can explore SD and not ever be too far from home.

If we ever come back to SD - this is the place we will be booking back with. Such an amazing place and we absolutely loved it!

I’m not even sure where to begin as this place is just simply stunning. Has everything you need in a fantastic bundle. Travelling America from Australia with my 3 kids it was such a pleasant thing to be able to spread out and have some space plus do all the laundry in the massive washing machine and dryer. Only disappointment was having to leave this place so soon. Wish I had enough have more time to enjoy the place some more. Will be recommending to friends and family that may end up visiting your part of the world. Sorry I didn’t get a chance to leave a message in your guest book at the house.
Matt M. Jun 2018
This house was perfect for our two families. Plenty of room and great location. We were able to walk a few places, and uber was very inexpensive down to the beach. I highly recommend! Only one thing -- the coffee pot doesn't automatically turn off, so don't forget to turn it off!
Gregory C. Jun 2018
We stayed here in 2016 and loved. We decided last year to venture to another location which left us unimpressed. We decided to come back here this year and remembered why we were happy the last time. The place in 2 years has been kept up. The house is clean and well equipped. The location is great for biking (which this house provides) down to the beach in the morning or anything of the day. For the evening, spend a couple dollars and Uber in for a fun night.
Amy N. May 2018
This house is stunning and immaculate! Extremely clean and even better than pictured. We loved the on demand tankless water heater. We never ran out of hot water while utilizing the three showers at the same time. Our family stayed for a week and loved the location. We were within 15-minutes to anywhere we wanted to go. We typically beach it in La Jolla but really enjoyed the not so packed beach and easier parking at Pacific Beach (less than a mile from the house). There are so many great restaurants and grocery stores close by. Can’t say enough about this house! We will definitely stay again!

Clean house with everything you need
Julie Maryse S. May 2018
6 girls recently stayed at the Beach Comber in San Diego. It was probably the nicest rental that I have ever stayed at. The house was very clean and the beds were incredibly comfortable. The house was located in a great neighbourhood that was very safe. The 6 bikes were great to use to get to and from the main attractions in Pacific Beach. The house was centrally located between La Jolla and downtown. Anna was so helpful and responded in such timely manner to any questions or concerns that we had. If ever I am to go San Diego again, I would definitely stay at this house!
Denise R S. Apr 2018
We really enjoyed our stay at the Beach Comber. Nicely decorated, well appointed, very clean and comfortable. The location was great for exploring San Diego by car.
Jennifer G. Apr 2018
The house was very comfortable for our party of 6. Easy to relax together in living room or dining room, but also plenty of spots to get some quiet time (nice deck area in back!). Kitchen was really nicely outfitted and we cooked in quite a bit. Neighborhood was quiet and had close-by grocery shopping, restaurants. Location of house was centrally located for touring Midway, Balboa park and local colleges. I would stay in this house again!
Gayla C. Mar 2018
My second stay and it’s beyond the best of any vacation home we have rented!
John C K. Feb 2018
Modern & clean - perfect for business professionals. Property manager was very helpful and responsive throughout the duration of our stay. Thank you!
Mark B. Jan 2018
Great house for two families with young kids.

Mary Jo A. Nov 2017
Five of us were here for the Komen 3 Day 60 mile breast cancer walk. We could not have picked a better house to retreat to after our long days of walking! We loved the open concept kitchen/living area, and the gas fireplace! VERY well stocked kitchen, with everything we needed to make meals at home. Spacious, well appointed bedrooms. Loved some of the special touches, e.g., gas fireplace, outside elevated patio, wine chiller. We'll be back!
Retina D. Nov 2017
The beach comber was very comfortable and offered many options for everyone on our stay. The locations was great for all of the experiences we wanted, specifically the Glasslamp quarter and Grand Ave. Grand Ave is filled with restaurants and also the beginning of the pier , where you can see the Pacific beach. It's a wonderful area
Jacki L. Oct 2017
We stayed here for Fall Break with two families, plus a friend for a total of four adults and five kids. It was a perfect size for our group and everyone had their own place to sleep (including using the pullout couch. The place is in great shape and has wonderful amenities. We used the bikes quite a bit - they were very popular for giving the teenagers some freedom. It's definitely a drive to the beach if you're hauling a bunch of stuff. We walked to Pacific Beach Fish Co. for dinner one night and it was great!
Crystal A. Oct 2017
The house was fabulous and in a great location! Every detail of the house was perfect - the decor, rooms, amenities, it was all amazing. We had such a nice girls trip vacation and I have already recommended this place to other people! Ana and the entire Vacasa team communicated very well and the whole process was easy. This was my first time using Vacasa but it will definitely not be the last. Thanks for a memorable trip!
Benjamin C. Sep 2017
We've rented several houses with several different companies all over the country but this was the best house! Our whole family cannot wait to stay there again! We feel like we have our own vacation house in San Diego now! It was perfect for the whole family! Very accommodating for the kids! Immaculately clean! Close to everything! Comfy and fun for hanging out! Just perfect!
Debra H. Sep 2017
We were a family of 6 adults. This place accommodated us perfectly! Absolutely beautiful inside and out. Loved the master bath/shower set up. The whole house is a very open concept. Centrally located to all of the places we visited...San Diego Zoo, Pacific Beach, La Jolla, Coronado Island, the USS Midway, etc. Nice neighborhood and surrounding area. Would definitely stay here again. What you see in the pictures is what you get with this house! Can't say enough about it! Such a great vacation!
Susie L. Aug 2017
We just took the whole family, 9 of us, to Pacific Beach for a long weekend and had the time of our lives! The house is beautiful and had all the things we needed to just hang out and enjoy the property. I usually see a hodge podge of kitchen items in the rentals we've used in the past - this kitchen is well stocked with quality stuff! The deck is perfect for reading in the morning and cocktails at sunset. Everything was perfect
KRIS M. Jul 2017
We had a family retreat at this home and enjoyed it very much. Close enough to the action of the beach and only 3 blocks from a grocery store, Starbucks, etc. This house resides in a very quiet neighborhood. We were able to tour the area and retreat back to the tranquility of this beautiful home.
Jorge S. Jul 2017
Very clean
Pam F. Jun 2017
This home was beautiful and felt more like staying at a friends home rather than a "rental". The kitchen had every pot, pan, dish, utensil and electric device you could possibly imagine. Perfect for people who love to cook! The two queen bedrooms were extremely comfortable. Huge bathrooms with plush towels and toiletries. Wonderful home for two couples and lots of kids/young adults. We will definitely stay here again!
Yvonne W. Jun 2017
The home was absolutely wonderful-perfect for families with small children. Plenty of space and great enclosed deck. We plan on staying here again!
Moira R. Jun 2017
Immaculate, beautiful, comfortable family house! We wanted to stay forever!!
Emma A. May 2017
Beautiful home in a lovely street.
Miranda M. May 2017
A wonderful stay for our group of 8!
Mark B. Apr 2017
The property itself is very nice, lot's of upgrades. However, the only main issue we had was that it backs a very busy street by the name of, " Grand." This street is very busy 24 hrs a day. So, it's difficult to get a good nights sleep in two of the bedrooms that face that street. Also, only 2 out of the 4 bedrooms have tv's but the livingroom does have a tv too, however, very limited channels, like less than 10.. nothing else available for movies. Bring your own toiletries as they are very limited including towels. The beach cruisers were a real plus especially since Pacific Beach is only about a mile away. I also enjoyed the back patios, 1 large, 1 small, the balcony off the master bedroom and the narrow porch off the back bedroom. I would rent this property again if it's wasn't located next to that busy street. If you're looking for a nice house and you can deal with the previous issues mentioned above, then, you'll like the house itself.
Bailey T. Apr 2017
Ana was such a pleasure to work with and the home was absolutely fantastic!! It is perfect for a girls get away or a weekend away with your children!! The home accommodates both easily.
Darcie And Ken N. Mar 2017
Great location, beautiful home!
Kelsey G. Mar 2017
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.
Kelsey N. Mar 2017
We loved our stay! The house was very nice and in a great location. Would highly recommend and hope to be back soon!
Sheila W. Feb 2017
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!!
Gino V. Jan 2017
Was great for my large group. Everything was very accommodating .
Beth R. Dec 2016
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.
Rudy S. Dec 2016
The Beach Comber house was very clean and exceeded all of our expectations. The kitchen is very large and it has a good size dining room. The garage is a little small so you can only fit one car, no trucks, in it. Overall i would recommend the house.
Chris L. Nov 2016
This property and it's management met or exceeded all expectations. It was a wonderful and effortless holiday.
Dawn And Steve L. Oct 2016
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.
Laura H. Oct 2016
Great house with good amenities. Perfect kitchen and dining area for spending time with friends. We especially enjoyed having bikes available for the short bike ride to the beach!
Tracy . Oct 2016
This house is perfect for a family vacation. The location is just minutes to everything. Easy access to the freeway. Great restaurants and beaches. Had a highchair, 2 porta cribs, games, and even a training seat for little ones. Was kept up well. Will definitely be back. Communication with Vacasa was great.
Maile B. Sep 2016
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.
Melissa R. Sep 2016
Amazing house!!
Gayla C. Sep 2016
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!
Anne P. Aug 2016
We had a wonderful time, loved the house, close to bay and the beach.
Katrina L. Aug 2016
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!
Jennifer M. Jul 2016
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.
Rebecca M. Jul 2016
Beautiful home, great location-the bikes were a wonderful touch!
Kenneth F. Jul 2016
I would definitely recommend this house as a vacation rental. the house was extremely spacious for gatherings, great location. Nice décor.
Carly & Hannah R. Jun 2016
Loved this home. It was perfectly kept up and in an amazing location. The house was well stocked with the essentials. The bikes were fantastic!
Christina H. May 2016
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.
Karen P. Mar 2016
We were very pleased with our stay. Great location, great house, great town. We hope to return here in the summer.
Dean P. Mar 2016
We wanted a place where we and our daughters and their small children could vacation together. It was perfect for us. Enough bedrooms and beds and things for the baby that we didn't have to bring.
Austin L. Mar 2016
My friends and I enjoyed a nice 5 days on this property. Was very easy getting settled in and felt like we were at home.
Blaire V. Mar 2016
We recently visited this home and had one of the best weekends! Huge updated home with amazing deck! Very safe area and only 1 mile from the beach! Tons of bars and restaurants within walking distance. Will be back!
Brenda M. Jan 2016
We were in San Diego for our sons graduation from boot camp. Location was perfect and property is beautiful and very comfortable. Lots of space for everyone. Not often beds are as comfortable as home and these were. Every imaginable appliance you might need, kitchen very well stocked as were the baths.
Max B. Jan 2016
The property was in pristine condition and truly incredible down to every little detail. The manager was extremely helpful. We had a 3 year old and 10 month old who needed to go down for naps before the allotted check-in time so I called the manager and she agreed to get us in 3 hours early for nap!! So awesome!!
Robert A. Jan 2016
We enjoyed this property. Easy bike ride to the beach. You can walk to grocery stores and restaurants. Nice new house.
Cynthia R. Oct 2015
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.

Kristina E. Sep 2015
This house was beautiful, spacious, and homey for our girls weekend getaway. It was close to everything downtown PB and also large enough to have dinner's at home and enjoy each other's company. The rooms were cozy and allowed us to all have space to get ready at night! We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend here and will definitely be back!
Matthew S. Sep 2015
Good for a decent size family and/or friends.
Vacasa makes process easilily accessible through emails. Lots of activities in surrounding area. Beach cruisers in garage were an added bonus!
Denise C. Aug 2015
I'd stay here again in a heartbeat. Spacious, well kept and well designed, very clean, comfortable home/beds/baths, and quiet neighborhood, easy street parking. the best parts - the outdoor deck and the bikes to ride to the beach!
Kristin B. Aug 2015
The house was perfect! We rented it for a bachelorette weekend and we couldn't be happier. The house was exactly as photographed, but much better in person. Clean, roomy, beautiful kitchen, awesome back patio. Used every inch of this place. We loved it!
Elizabeth H. Jul 2015
I stayed at this property with some friends while celebrating a birthday in SD. The house is adorable and very spacious! The kitchen is gorgeous and great for cooking/entertaining. We had a small BBQ on Friday night to celebrate my birthday, and my boyfriend proposed in front of our friends and family in the back yard! Definitely a trip we will never forget.
Jeffrey B. Jul 2015
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.
Kenneth S. Jun 2015
This house is truly amazing. It's perfect for a large group or family reunion. The Beach cruiser bikes make the stay even better. We loved using the roof-top patio. It is a luxurious house with amenities that make your stay relaxing. The kitchen is stocked with every utensil and appliance you'd ever need! I'm dieing to go back already.
Rossella C. Jun 2015
Amazing time!!! Perfect for our girls weekend.
Erin B. Apr 2015
This house is absolutely gorgeous and was perfect for our girls weekend getaway!! Super clean, roomy, stocked with everything we needed and a beautiful patio out back! Would love to stay here again!
Manager response:
You definitely picked a great place to have your weekend getaway! Thank you so much for your wonderful feedback and we hope you stay with us again.
Saul H. Apr 2015
Kitchen, roof top seating area and downstairs area are made for family dinners and entertaining.
Lynette G. Mar 2015
The pictures do not do this beautiful property justice. It is well located for cycling to Mission Bay, Pacific and Mission Beaches. Bikes are provided which is very handy. Would absolutely recommend to family and friends.
Manager response:
The owner of this home definitely put some thought into the amenities and we are glad to know that your group was able to enjoy them and that you all had a great time. Thank you for your wonderful review, we are very proud to have this new property and would love to have you stay with us again!
Monica K. Mar 2015
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!
Christopher C. Feb 2015
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.
