Beautiful condo in Pacific Beach. Built in 2003 and well kept, with hardwood floors, appliances, Washer/Dryer, private patio area in front, sun deck on the 3rd story with ocean/bay in view. Each bedroom has private bath. Plenty of space, plenty of sunshine!

The space

There's a fenced in garden patio area out front with a BBQ, and deck up top with a hot tub and a limited but clear ocean view. The deck is great for catching sunshine, and there's a 2 car garage our back for parking. It's 1 block off of Garnet St. where the business district is, and is walking distance to everything - Trader Joe's supermarket is on the corner, plus shops, restaurants, and nightlife right around the corner as well. 7 blocks to beach or bay.

Guest access

Full condo access.

Interaction with guests

I enjoy meeting new people. I'm happy to give recommendations and to make sure your stay is fully enjoyable. Feel free to call me anytime with any questions.

I now live in Santa Monica but I do come down more than a few times a month, I may be around. I have friendly neighbors that can assist you as well, and may likely be the ones that hand the keys over to you.

We had a lovely stay at Rich's place. It was the perfect setup for a group of 7 and had everything we needed. The condo is close to a number of restaurants and grocery stores, and about a 20 min walk to the beach. Rich was really easy to communicate with and flexible with any accommodations that we needed. Highly recommend!

Rich was an excellent host. The property was fully equipped with anything you could need, and close to everything.

If you are looking for a broken down and not a well maintained home, this is your place. It's a complete rip off with host and maid as con artists. The house has a terrible ant and bug problem. Our party had to alternate waking up early morning to kill armies of ants. It was insane! Sheets had Brown dirty stains and do not get me started of the beds. Rich needs to visit his property more often and maintain a better quality of his home. Not to mention that the home is not kid friendly and the host comments make it very clear that he discriminates against children.

Response from Rich:
Folks, Inna is simply dishonest. To start, she stated she had 4 adults and 2 kids coming which I welcomed. It turns out she had 6 adults and 4 kids total, which is way to many for my place, and they left it a complete mess. When I found out about the mess, and the additional charges to clean for the next visitors (3 hours more than normal + a floor steam cleaning) I told Inna about the additional fees. I've never asked anyone - ever - for additional payment, but the mess was so bad I asked Inna about covering this and only then she started claiming these things. She originally said everything was perfect, cute and clean when she arrived, and then maid these claims on after I asked her to cover it. I wish Airbnb would verify this because all of my above statements are from our messaging. As for kids, I've always welcomed them. I even have a Graco portable crib for kids that I let guests use. I've had plenty of families enjoy their stay here. The problem is that these specific parents let their kids drag dirt in, leave dirty hands prints and stains all over the white walls, and even leave vomit from a toddler was left on the wall by the changing station. Her excuse was there were no instruction not to have them play in dirt and come in. They were just a very ignorant, very filthy group. I don't blame the kids at all, it's the parents job to watch them an to teach them to be respectful. Needless to say Inna's group is not welcome back. Finally, there is no bug problem. If there was, it was temporary from the trash Inna left lying around, that I have pictures of and submitted to Airbnb. I doubt anyone woke up early to kill armies of ants, that is likely part of Inna imagination like the rest of her comments. I do try to accommodate guests and their needs as much as possible, as I have for the last 3 years, and as guests below have stated. If you want to treat my home as a party place and leave it a mess please look elsewhere. If you can communicate with me well and can be respectful of my home you're more than welcome to enjoy your stay here.

Rich is a good host. Very easy to check in, property is as described. Location is terrific and the garage solves the parking problem. My only challenge is with the cleanliness and upkeep. The issues I see that were mentioned previously were still an issue for our visit. While disappointing, Rich will go out of his way to assist.....simply the kindest host we have encountered. Reserve this property without hesitation, but press him to make sure the pkace is clean!

The place was great! We were 6 girls there to celebrate the 4th and a 30th birthday! Bedrooms are large, spacious, and each have their own bathroom. The hotter was AMAZING!!! We were in it every night! The house is a beach rental, so we were not so concerned about the style and amenities of the house as much as a place to lay our head in a convenient neighborhood. This lived up to mine and my groups expectations! The neighborhood is great, everything walking distance- the house is nice, on the newer side, well maintained and simple. Has everything you need in it and all stores for other things are within a 5 minute walk. Rich was easy to correspond with and accommodating when we asked for a bit more. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a relaxing time in SD!

The location was walking distance to shops and restaurants which was really convenient. The host was great also. Making sure we had everything we needed and available for questions. We would stay here again!

The house was just what we were looking for in the perfect location, close to stores, restaurants, and bars. It was only a short uber ride to the beach and about 20 minutes away from downtown and other scenic places. There was an issue with parking however as some of our friends had to park a couple blocks over but we mostly used uber to get around so once we found a spot we kept our cars there for the whole trip. The house was set up perfect with four bathrooms which came in handy for a girls trip. The house was mostly clean and stocked except for the bathrooms that could have used a little extra cleaning. We cleaned the sinks. Showers and Tubs before we used them because they appeared to have some mold and soap scum built up. The house could also use a few repairs as the master bedroom headboard is broken and the screen was ripped going out to the balcony. Also the hot tub was not usable as it appeared that it hadn't been cleaned in a while. Other than that the house suited us for our trip and the host was very nice and helpful and very easy to get a hold of.

I'm glad you enjoyed your stay Lindsay! I wish people wouldn't tell me 'everything is fine!' at several points while on a stay, and then leave complaints on reviews like this. Please let me know if anything is wrong and I'll see what I can do to take care of it. As for the parking, I do have a two car garage out back, I'm not sure why that didn't get used. Also, the place was professionally cleaned 3 times this month and just before the stay, i'm not sure what build-up there was or what was wrong with the hot tub, but I'd appreciate pictures so I can send the maids back out. I wish Airbnb would post pictures of complaints, I really don't understand what the issue was there. Future guests, if there's anything I can do with issues you see, please let me know. Thank you.
