Recent San Diego vacation rental reviews

House was clean, well equiped, wonderful front porch and accommodated my full family of 5-6 people on any given day during our stay. One item i wish the kitchen had was a pair of scissors. We had a great stay at this house!!

The location was great everything was perfect could have had more updated comforter was torn and I think some of the bedding sheets were a little torn. The bed frame broke downstairs but they came and took it out to fix it and then the dryer stopped working other than that it was a great location very clean and quiet

I write this review having just left San Diego, California just a few days ago. Your beach house is one of the best ones I have stayed at! The location was remarkable - only a few minutes from Mission Bay Beach and the Pacific Ocean and just a short walk to Belmont Park. There were many shops/restaurants which were just a short walk. The beach house was beautiful, well stocked and clean. The beds were comfortable and we had plenty of linens. The beach house had two balconies, one of which was covered, and the other one was large and in the shade in the late afternoon (I rented the top floor unit). We were provided two parking spaces which were great! They were small but we had small vehicles which were perfect. It had everything that was needed or wanted for a wonderful beach vacation! There was airplane noise but I don’t think you could stay in this area and not hear some noise. We will be coming back to San Diego and hope to stay in this beach house again!

Explore our San Diego, CA vacation rentals

Break out from the humdrum with a trip to sunny California. San Diego vacation rentals offer a convenient home base while you explore nearby city attractions, stunning beaches, and dive into the food scene. Welcome to California, there’s something here for everyone.

Where is San Diego, CA?

Just 13 miles from the seaside beach community of La Jolla, our San Diego beach house vacation rentals offer access to a cosmopolitan, vibrant city environment, but with exciting outdoor attractions like hiking, biking, fishing, and of course surfing, right nearby.

Outdoor Activities in San Diego

There are 27 miles of car-free, winding, paved bike paths that loop around the activity-rich area of Mission Bay (great for families) and the Bayshore Bikeway includes 25 miles of scenic bike lanes along San Diego Bay. Whatever your skill level, you can find an adventure on two wheels —and a few photo ops on the way.

When you leave your vacation rental in the morning, you can explore the canyons, mountains, and deserts on two feet. Hiking trails are plentiful and well-groomed, whether you take off for an easy Sunset Cliffs beach walk or a three-mile vertical climb up Cowles Mountain. If you're looking to catch a wave, San Diego boasts big swells and waves, guaranteed to have you hanging ten before you know it.

Things to Do in San Diego

Mission Bay boasts one of the largest aquatic parks in the world, so bring your water skis, kayaks, and fishing pole. With over 90 museums in San Diego County alone, this is a haven for arts and culture enthusiasts. Spend an afternoon walking around Balboa Park (home to the San Diego Museum of Art, Model Railroad Museum, and more), Old Town San Diego, and if you have kids, be sure to stop by the New Children's Museum downtown or the world-famous San Diego Zoo

With an impossibly tasty food scene, it’s only a matter of where to start in San Diego. Stop by a corner taco stall on your way to the beach, dig into fresh seafood by the water, or head to Hodad’s Downtown for a locally-loved giant burger. Don’t forget to cool down with ice cream while window shopping on the boardwalk.

At 120 miles south of Los Angeles, San Diego offers a gentle Mediterranean climate with plenty of sun and cool ocean breezes. The city boasts 70 miles of gorgeous beachy coastline, making it the perfect location for a memorable California getaway for the whole family, a romantic weekend, or even a surfing trip with friends. Browse beachfront homes, high-rise condos, or search stays by amenities for your home base in this sun-drenched coastal city.
