Beachfront Condo with Ocean Views, Free WiFi, and Shared Hot Tub and Sauna

Bright, cozy, and comfortable are just three ways to describe this oceanfront Pacific Beach vacation rental. With a beautiful view overlooking the pier as well as access to a shared hot tub and sauna, you'll be in the throes of relaxation in no time. It's the perfect holiday refuge for two couples traveling together or a small family traveling alone.

The Pacific Beach Pier is right outside your door as is the sandy beach. This lovely home is just 10 miles from downtown San Diego and less than four miles from Sea World.

This two-bedroom, two-bath condo is centrally located and has all the amenities one could want in a vacation home. The neutral tones of the airy living room evoke a feeling of gladness. Sink into one of two leather couches (one of which is a sofa bed) as you gather around the TV. A large mirror on one wall makes the room feel even bigger than it already is and showcases the great seaside. Head through the sliding glass doors to the intimate balcony with seating for sunset views over the water.

You'll find a six-seat dining room table nearby. The gray-hued kitchen boasts plentiful countertops as well as an electric range and a dishwasher. Whip up a tasty treat in no time and enjoy it at the four-seat breakfast bar.

Each of the two bedrooms boasts an en-suite bath, making this home ideal for up to five people (four adults max, please). The master features a queen bed in a floral coverlet as well as wood furniture and a mirrored closet. An en-suite full bath features a tub. The other bedroom has a queen bed in a blue-and-white coverlet, a mirrored closet, and an en-suite bath with a standalone shower.

Soak your weary muscles in the shared hot tub or sauna on the first floor of the building. Guests also get access to a shared washer and dryer, free WiFi, cable, and a boogie board.

Pacific Beach is one of the top areas in Southern California thanks to its beautiful beaches and wealth of attractions. Sea World is within the vicinity, and you can also enjoy a meal at one of the many bars or restaurants in the area. Cruise the famous three-mile boardwalk on bike or enjoy a local craft beer at one of the myriad breweries in town.

Sun, sand, and sea await your pleasure at this cheerful San Diego vacation rental.

Easy access to beach and shops. A bit loud with all the clubs in the area, but nothing out of the expected!
Paul H. Jul 2022
Really enjoyed our time in this unit. We will be making this a yearly thing.
Paula K. Jan 2022
The Manager Anna of this property was fantastic. She was very responsive and that was a good thing because the property was very dated with teflon cookware, blinds that were missing slates and mold in the bathroom. She made sure everything was taken care of immediately and saved our stay. Vacasa was useless, all they did was put me off with pleasantries and condolences until they put me in touch with Anna. The property itself has a great location except for the bar across the street which is loud and keeps you awake on weekends. The beds were box spring and mattress combined and very uncomfortable. The TVs were not smart and you could not use netflick or prime and were stuck with cable. However despite these drawbacks we loved the location and the layout and warmth of the apartment. With a little bit more loving care to beds, linens, and cookware and some updates this property would be on the top of my list.

The unit was very clean and everything was in working order. If you are looking for a quiet getaway, this unit is not for you. There is a bar downstairs on the balcony side of the unit and a loud street on the backside. Lots of loud thumping music until early hours and street noise. The rooms had fans so it was nice to have some white noise. Was also nice to have cable to watch sports and the location is great to be so close to the beach.
Michael L. Aug 2021
We loved every single minute of the stay the restaurants, the beach, the people watching. Wouldn’t trade this for anything
Adrienne R. Jun 2021
The condo was fabulous. Location was awesome. Everything you need is either in the room or right outside.
Kristine A. May 2021
Location was wonderful!
Patricia B. Mar 2021
Beware of the parking spot in the garage. It is very narrow and between a column and a wall so a hazard to use.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Patricia! We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused by the narrow parking space in the garage. We completely understand how this can be frustrating and negatively impact your stay. Thank you
Julie M. Aug 2020
Close to the beach but having NO AC disclosed would of been nice.

You can open all the windows and hear the ocean waves all day and night. Convenient location. Fun balcony to people watch and to catch the sunset.
Michelle H. Jun 2020
I loved staying at this place. My view was no joke and that's what made my trip. There were some issues like the blinds kept falling down in the master bedroom, the wallpaper on the ceiling in the master bath was coming down. Also there were only two washclothes in the whole place for 5 people and not enough towels but when I called Vacasa they took care of it right away. They were stocked with everything you need in the kitchen and had boogie boards and sand toys for the kids. Also very clean which I was worried about because of Covid but once I saw the unit I was no longer worried. All in all i would recommend See the Sea condo number 64 to anyone. I can't wait to go back.
Margaret G. Jan 2020
Had a garage parking space, walked to restaurants, walked the beach every day. There is a noisy club across the street.
Theresa H. Sep 2019
Ocean view, convenient location
Christyne V. Sep 2019
Pros: Enjoyed our stay...Location was ideal! Beach and boardwalk out the front door. Many great restaurants walking distance
Cons: Carpet needs replacement NOW. No beach towels or chairs provided. Music across street very loud on the weekends
Manager response:
Thank you for leaving feedback, Christyne! We’re glad you enjoyed your stay at this lovely oceanfront condo, and the easy beach and boardwalk access served you well. We are happy to report that a carpet cleaning has been scheduled, and we are looking into adding beach chairs. Please note, beach towels are provided. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!

Perfect location
Cathy S. May 2019
Perfect beach vacation spot. You can see the water from your balcony. Perfect place to people watch. Near everything! We walked everywhere. Secure building. Great view!
Jeannie R. Apr 2019
This was a great space in the heart of the action of Pacific Beach, but as it was in the heart of the action it was noisy at night. Super convenient, well-cared for, fun to watch people and sunsets from the balcony, but hard to avoid the noise from the bar across the street. That said, it was a fun place to be!
Cathy S. Sep 2018
The view was great. Clean, close to everything. Plenty of places to eat, shop, walk. It was a perfect vacation. We needed help with the tv, the property manager Ana arroved within minutes. Very friendly!! Easy to book and stay. We will be back.
Theresa H. Sep 2018
love the ocean view, it gets a little loud at the bar across the street
John T. Aug 2018
Great location
Close to beach and restaurants
Helen Z. Jul 2018
You can’t beat the location but the unit needs a complete renovation top to bottom. It’s clean & has all of your basics. Great place if all you’re looking for is a place to lay your head at the end of the day.
Manager response:
We appreciate this feedback and will take it under consideration.

Steps from the beach
Angelica L. Feb 2018
Unit is a bit dated and loud music on the weekends.
Manager response:
We will ask the owner about possible future upgrades. Thank you!
Venkat R. Jan 2018
The apartment was a corner, never get a single ray of sun in the winter, ocean view is through a slight corner not good enough for the price.

The beds were so soft and blankets not good enough, just imagine a cheap motel with cheap carpet and bad smells.

This is a business and since location is great they will keep getting guests. But with a few small expenses in upgrading the furniture and carpet they could make it worth living.
Per N. Oct 2017
Very helpful staff - a nice clean appartment with a nice oceanview.
Wright W. Sep 2017
Very good location close to lots of restaurants bars, the pier and the beach. No air conditioning in our room. Pick the dates wisely it was very hot the weekend we chose, Labor Day. Other than that it was a great place to stay lots of rooms in the condo.
Becky K. Jul 2017
The condo was nice. It had NO air-condition. With the bar 710 located below and having to have the windows open it was very very noisy.
Paul F. May 2017
The only reason this location isn't great is because of the noisy bar across the street from the balcony, but anyone under 90 yrs of age should be able to tolerate it. I am in my 60's, and it was no big deal, otherwise the location couldn't be better, the condo is good, a bit dated, but decently good.
John L. Apr 2017
Great setup for our family. Great location.
Timothy L. Mar 2017
We were so excited to rent a condo right at Crystal Pier. The location can’t be beat, and right in the center of all the beach action! The beach view is awesome! The unit is large and spacious with 2 bedrooms and 2 baths. Parking is great and convenient. Easy access to the building is great. The nightlife did make the evenings noisy, but we expected that. However, we didn’t know there would be street cleaning at 4:00 am and back-up beepers of delivery trucks at 5:00 am. We also weren’t expecting the fire station half a block away with sirens blasting, it was a little unsettling. For the location and the premium price this unit should not have the outdated furnishings and unusable jacuzzi. The price should be reduced for all the uncontrollable noise you have to put up with. If the unit was updated, the price adjusted, and the jacuzzi repaired so it’s functioning, we would definitely consider staying here again.
Navinder S. Mar 2017
The location was perfect... right by the beach, close to all pubs, food, shops...
The home itself was just ok. It is very dated, had old bedding, and shag carpeting, common areas are not very nice.

The pubs outside are EXTREMELY loud. I don't recommend this place for light sleepers. The building is loud at night as well with slamming doors etc from people partying. This all wouldn't have been an issue if we weren't with young children.

Overall... the stay was alright. Probably would pick a different unit a couple blocks north or south of here to get away from some of the noise. Possibly something 10+ years newer as well.
Michael K. Feb 2017
The smell of the living room carpet was less than favorable about this location. Other reviews also mentioned the noise from the bar across the street, which was worst on Saturday night, but not bad other nights. Location within walking distance to several nicer places to eat was a real plus as was the location on the ocean front. Parking was also a big plus with the garage in the building.
Mary C. Feb 2017
Easy access to the ocean, our main objective
Linda L. Feb 2017
Sun, sea, surf, pier, and boardwalk at your doorstep. If this is more important than the surrounding noise that comes from being in the heart of pacific beach, you will be happy here. The management team is excellent and the furnishings were clean and comfortable. We enjoyed our many conversations at the kitchen counter over breakfast and in the living room and dining areas in the evening. We walked for miles each day and took public transportation to other areas such as Old Town. Our favorite restaurants were the Fat Fish and Konos right next door.
Chris F. Nov 2016
We visit each year and usually stay at a hotel in the area. This was a way better price and it was nice to share the 2 br condo with our friends. the condo was clean and had a nice deck and nice view of the ocean.
Kay W. Oct 2016
San Diego is magic. This unit was a little dated, but it was clean and secure.
Jerry J. Oct 2016
Perfect location.
Lorraine L. Sep 2016
It is quite noisy at night but we are good sleepers so not really a problem for us. Noise could be an issue for others though.
ERIC B. Aug 2016
Nice appartment with great view but very Noisy.
Silvia G. Apr 2016
Four of us found two bedroom unit spacious and accommodating. Really enjoyed the place for our coming and goings! We want to come here again next year!
Summer C. Apr 2016
Thank you so much it was perfect!
Shari M. Mar 2016
This place was in a great location, walking distance from everything. The place was clean but outdated. We would stay there again!!
Lisa C. Dec 2015
The only thing this place has going for it, is the the location. You're walking distance from many good places. Bar outside window turns into a club, so loud people and bass til 2am! :s
Manager response:
We are sorry to see that you did not better enjoy your stay. The location really is great, and the view is fun!
Brian S. Nov 2015
My family of 4 had a wonderful time at this beach rental for 4 days. Our main goal for this vacation was to have our boys play in the ocean and on the beach while us parents soaked up some Vitamin D. Best part of this rental was the beach being right in front of you and the people watching. Restaurants, grocery stores, ocean and shore equipment rentals, and shopping right around every corner. We had a good time.
Kathy S. Nov 2015
The location is amazing. Park and forget your car. The condo is a good size, and well equipped. It was very clean and the beds were comfortable. It's a bit dated, but then so is the building . For the location, size of the condo, etc., you can't go wrong renting here. I would definitely put this at the top of my list.
Ashley S. Nov 2015
1. Great location. Seriously, five minute walk to the best bars and restaurants in PB.
2. Balcony

1. Our unit was super outdated (TVs all had VHS players). It wasn't a deal breaker but the carpet, fake plants and furniture have all seen better days.
2. Owner and other tenants seemed to be very strict. We actually got a noise complaint and we were just sitting around listening to music on our laptop...we had been in the unit for a grand total of three hours.
3. It is super loud at night with the windows open. We didn't mind because we loved being so close to the bars and restaurant, but if you have kids...maybe get an inside unit or one away from Garnet.

Overall I'd give this place a 3. It may have been our specific unit, but next time we'd opt for a more young adult friendly place and/or get a remodeled unit. Would have been a more comfortable stay.
