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.

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.

    Modern & clean - perfect for business professionals. Property manager was very helpful and responsive throughout the duration of our stay. Thank you!

    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

    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!

    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!

    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

    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.

    Pam F.June 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!

    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!

    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!

    Benjamin C.September 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!

    A wonderful stay for our group of 8!

  • The Beach Comber

    Mark B.April 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.

    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.

    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.

    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!!

    Beth R.December 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.

  • The Beach Comber

    Rudy S.December 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.November 2016

    This property and it's management met or exceeded all expectations. It was a wonderful and effortless holiday.

  • The Beach Comber

    Dawn And Steve L.October 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.

    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 .October 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.September 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.

    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!

    Jennifer M.July 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.

    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.

    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.

    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!!

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
