This lovely large home with it's spacious backyard, , BBQ and deck MAY seem like the perfect venue for your wedding, bachelorette party, birthday party, reunion, old college friends get-together or whatever but IT'S NOT. This is a quiet, peaceful residential neighborhood and we need to keep it that way to not lose our right to do vacation rentals. If you are looking for a quiet family beach area vacation and can keep from subjecting the neighbors to Mission Beach type vacation rental noise, keep reading.... Maureen's private home in Sunset Cliffs that will sleep up to 10 very comfortably without sharing all the beds. You can bring your furry family member also, as long as you don't leave your pet home alone to bark incessantly and disturb the neighbors. It has a large private yard for enjoying the outdoor California lifestyle. Located in a safe and quiet residential area, just a short walk to the ocean and Sunset Cliffs Natural Park for exploring the tide pools for which the area is famous. There is a little secret sandy beach just 6 blocks away at the end of Bermuda Ave but if you want a large, wide white-sand beach with lifeguards and restrooms and a long pier, Ocean Beach is just a little over a mile away.
Every Wednesday afternoon, OB hosts a Farmers' Market with live entertainment. Meander through all the antique stores and stay to eat in one of OBs wide variety of restaurants. There is even Dog Beach where your dog can run and play off-leash.
The main house is 2572 sf with large rooms plus there is a 200 sq ft detached guest studio studio with it's own TV and fireplace and bathroom with shower. making this an ideal place for families that need al lot of individual sleeping areas.

Working with the team was a smooth process. THANKS for your help!
The location of the property is simply amazing. It is a couple of blocks from the cliffs overlooking the ocean, and a mile from the business hub of one of the coolest neighborhoods in San Diego, with wonderful places to eat and play. The house itself is beautiful, with all of the modern amenities, and very comfortable. Created a great home away from home feel for our research teams (faculty and graduate students from our university) as they attended a busy research conference.

We really enjoyed the location of the property. Each morning began with a run, and the location allows quick access to the coastline. The downtown area (1 mile away) offers plenty of options for dining along with a couple of neat/nice markets to stock up on essentials. The set-up of the property is great. A nice big kitchen with family seating just off of that. Adequately sized additional bedrooms and bathrooms with a very nice sized master suite and bath. Although we did not use the studio, it is a nice addition. The home provides beach chairs and bikes, which is a great add-on for the experience. The neighborhood is great, and provides a really comfortable feeling of security. We only experienced a couple of challenges during our week-long stay. We had 2 smoke detector batteries (on consecutive nights) die, leading to each of the alarms sounding during the sleeping hours of the night. The rental company couldn't have really foreseen such an event, and I purchased batteries the next morning at the market to resolve the problem. The second challenge is in the lack of an HVAC unit. Despite our efforts to close blinds and prevent the sun from entering the house during the day, we found that the home was very warm at night. They provided multiple fans, which we utilized - but the weather was a little warmer than normal perhaps, and open windows at night just weren't enough to cool the property down to a comfortable sleeping temperature. The studio apartment was a sauna, and we did not use it at all after entering it on the first day. Again, this is not the rental agencies "fault". Just dumb luck perhaps, but I would have definitely preferred there to be a way to actively cool the home. Overall we found the staff at Nancy's to be very helpful in the booking process, and although we did not phone them for anything during our stay, I'm quite sure they would've been ready to help in any way they could. We would recommend this property to anyone looking for the peace and tranquility described in Nancy's Vacation Rental posting.
