Katy Perry reportedly wanted her own state’s version after hearing Jay-Z’s “Empire State of Mind” so she recorded “California Girls,” which is just as poppy and sugary as her Candyland-inspired video.
It’s a song that qualifies as an official summer anthem, but more than that, makes us want to go on vacation.
Like … to San Diego vacation rentals.
The tune hearkens to bikinis, convertibles and that curvaceous coastline immortalized on the silver screen. In our minds, California will always be bronzed, sunny and camera-ready.
The featured four-bedroom villa, casual yet cool with its shade palapa and six-person hot tub overlooking the Pacific, adds fuel to the fantasy. Showcasing surf and sunset right from the balcony, it also treats visitors to their own private beach next to the Sunset Cliffs at Point Loma. When the waves aren’t right for surfing, folks can simply watch for dolphins and whales or go exploring the neighboring town of Ocean Beach.
“In the evening, enjoy cocktails while listening to the surf, or take a romantic stroll on a long pier – the Ocean Beach pier, and enjoy the lights of San Diego from the over-water restaurant,” writes the owner of the property.
Don’t mind if we do.
