About the property

This cheery studio apartment is the perfect home base for enjoying Pacific Beach

Fun In the Heart of Pacific Beach

This cheery studio apartment is a comfortable home base for enjoying Pacific Beach and San Diego! Located on palm-tree-lined Emerald Street, right in the center of vibrant, fun-loving P.B.

You won’t even need a car if you plan to stay and play in Pacific Beach, as many of the beach bars, pubs and restaurants are just two blocks away from the apartment. But don’t worry—the noise and activity don’t reach this mostly quiet, residential street, so you can leave all of it behind when you’re ready for a good night’s sleep.

The bicycle rental shop just next door offers very reasonable daily rates, too, so you can grab a bike and head down to the beach and Boardwalk for the day. Or you can walk—the beach is only about a mile away.

I provide the beach goodies like a surfboard and boogie board for free. And golf clubs, too!

If you DO bring a car, a parking spot is included with the rental—totally free of charge. A car comes in handy if you plan to check out San Diego (downtown is 5 minutes away by car) and the surrounding area, with attractions like the San Diego Zoo, SeaWorld, Ocean Beach, and Mission Beach. It’s just 20 minutes to LegoLand, too.


Surfers, friends on a getaway, professionals on a business trip in search of accommodations with a little more personality, or families looking for some R&R at the beach all love this apartment.

It’s a simple, fun space that’s ideal for those who want a stellar location at a budget-friendly rate. Natural sunlight floods into the rooms, and the creative décor matches the funky vibe of Pacific Beach. The eat-in kitchen with bar stool seating is fully equipped with everything you need to cook a meal for your friends or family.

There’s an in-unit laundry room, which is wonderful to have about mid-week when your clothes need a refresher. The huge walk-in closest provides a great space for keeping your stuff out of the way.

The apartment has a sofa bed, which sleeps 2 guests (it’s great for kids), and a super-comfy queen-sized bed adjacent to it. Everyone can settle in to watch a movie on the flat screen at the end of a long day of surfing, exploring, or enjoying the Pacific Beach nightlife.


I’m here to help you have the best vacation ever in Pacific Beach! Let me know if there’s anything I can do to make it happen.

Check-in time is flexible. A key will be waiting for you in a lockbox, so you can arrive on your own time.

If you’re thinking of taking a sailing trip while you’re in town, please let me know! If you tell me ahead of time, I may be able to arrange a private cruise on one of my friend’s sailboats for way less money than the big companies are charging.

Overall, this apartment and its wonderful location ensures you’ll have a trip that is equal parts fun and relaxing. Boredom and stress just can’t survive here.

Get your friends and family together and get in touch to book your stay!

About Doreen

Originally from Germany I moved to San Diego 9 years ago after totally falling in love with the city during a visit.

I was fortunate to be able to travel to 60+ countries and work in 10 of them and just love traveling and meeting new friends from all over the world along the way. Yet with all of this, San Diego is still my all time favorite place to come home to :-)

I'm passionate about actually seeing the REAL life and REAL people in each of the countries I visit and not just staying in a generic hotel. So I'm trying to give my guests the same kind of experience in my favorite place in the world!

Welcome home to your adventure in San Diego!!!!

Doreen purchased this studio in 2013

Why Doreen chose North Pacific Beach

I just love the location of this place. Its right in the middle of everything, yet in a quiet street and close to the beach. The perfect starting place for your vacation.

What makes this studio unique

The place is directly next to the supermarket, walking distance to so many nice bars and restaurants as well as the beach. If you still decide to drive, there is a parking spot waiting for you and I can also provide you with surf and boogie boards, high chair/cribs and other nice to have's to make your stay as relaxing as possible!

Convenient location, great for a low key beach weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Convenient location, great for a low key beach weekend! After a short Uber or cab ride from the airport, you will find this simple studio apartment conveniently located within easy walking distance of the boardwalk, grocery stores and the bars and restaurants along Garnet. The apartment is also located a few blocks off the main strip so it is quiet when you want it to be!

Very basic. The unit itself is super loud, currently in a construction zone and every night techno music blasted from neighbors. Bring an extra roll of toilet paper because unit is stocked with no paper products. Not a place you want to spend a lot of time in but a lot of things with in walking distance.

Owner's Response: I'm really sorry that you had these problems, if you read all of my other reviews, you will see that, this is the first and only time ever anyone had issues with loud music or any kind of other issues with neighbors and the construction will be done in July 2015 and even that has not caused issues with anyone else so far.

Great Location and Very Clean

  • 5 of 5

This place looks exactly how it is portrayed in the pictures. It was clean and enough space for me and my husband. Linens, dishes, towels, toilet paper, cleaning supplies, shampoo/conditioner/lotion sample, one boogie board and a 6t foam surf board were provided. It was right of the main road (Garnet) and there were many places to eat/drink nearby. We rented bikes from Pacific Beach Bike Rentals ($40 for two bikes, Friday-Sunday) and they were a real treat. We especially enjoyed having a coffee shop within close walking distance. The beach is a little far away if you are towing a board/blanket/cooler, but it was still a great location. We also received are deposit refund quickly!

Just perfect for an extended stay!

  • 5 of 5

The place was exactly as described: simple, clean, and cozy, with all the essentials for a comfortable stay. The location is safe, quiet, and convenient, especially to the beach. There were plenty of grassy areas around the building for my dogs to take a quick morning break, and the residents were nice enough to allow my teen daughter into the building when she had forgotten the key. Doreen was available to contact in several ways, and immediately answered her phone when I needed to know where the laundry facilities were. All other instructions (where to park, how to access the key, etc) were provided in a time manner. My deposit was credited back within a few days of check-out. I will not hesitate to book with her again in the future.

Notes: There is no A/C in this unit, but it is not necessary if the windows are left open. Also, the laundry facility is coin-operated and accessed on the outside of the building.
