About Isabelle Piccini

We have owned our beach home since 1964 and are happy to share this rare and wonderful location with guests. My mother has long been known as the 'Queen of Hospitality' by her friends and family, it is perfectly fitting to be involved in hospitality with her home.

We love the beach and grew up surfing the local break out front. Our view from the roof deck spans from Pt. Loma to Pacific Beach Point and is a fabulous place to relax and enjoy the sun, sunsets or stars.

Isabelle Piccini purchased this house in 1964

Why Isabelle Piccini chose North Pacific Beach

Years ago when my parents parted ways, my single mother of 3 young girls took a big chance and bought this duplex across from the beach in the early '60s. The idea was we would live downstairs and rent out the top floor with the view to help ends meet, which has turned out to be the best idea she ever had. I am a native San Diegan and am thankful for growing up in such an awesome location. It is with great pleasure we are able to share this special location with people that would never have a chance to visit Pacific Beach in such a 'locals spot' sort of way.

What makes this house unique

I have traveled throughout the world and have decorated the beach house with treasures from around the world. The view is wonderful and our fire-pit on the roof-deck makes relaxing up top a treasured moment - very enjoyable. Order dinner to be delivered from some of our local favorite restaurants, Thai, Italian or Mexican and enjoy a memorable roof-top dinner - you will not be disappointed. Beach walks, sunsets, R&R! We offer a shopping service to have your vacation rental pre-stocked with your favorite food and drinks.

Great family vacation place!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a vacation/family reunion at this Pacific Beach rental 3/2/14 to 3/8/14. The house is beautiful, with an amazing rooftop deck; the beach a mere 1/2 block away. All amenities and appliances worked well. The landscaping is lush, with hummingbirds flitting about daily. Truly a lovely, well-kept rental in a nice neighborhood.

There was plenty to do in this area--beach activities (great surf beach!), biking, shopping, restaurants, etc. So you could stay here without a car if you wanted. We chose to rent a car to get to Balboa, Birch aquarium (amazing sea-horse exhibit), Botanical gardens, Torrey Pines State Park, etc. that are a little farther.

Last but not least, the owner Isabelle was very friendly and helpful. She guided us to a friendly local garage when my son's car had some issues. Thank you Isabelle! Hope to see you again.

This place was worth every penny! The view and the sound of the ocean was so tranquil. You can walk to everywhere in PB. The rooftop deck and the sunroom were the icing on the cake. Will most definitely stay again
