“Super clean, lots of room, great location!!”

Reviewed 18 Oct 2016

So let's be honest here... this is a large and spacious 3 bedroom, 2 bath in Pacific Beach and that is VERY hard to find! Huge kitchen, living room and dinning area. TV's in every room. The AC is awesome! Anyone that tells you that you won't need AC in San Diego is lying! Spacious garage for my car, I brought my bike but they have upgraded their bikes and I didn't need mine. There is a wonderful side yard with a BBQ grill. The neighborhood is quiet, 4 blocks from the beach, two blocks from the main street in PB. I walked/biked everywhere. Left the car in the garage. I have stayed here for 10 days on two occasions... I will definitely come back!

Owner's reply: Rolf, your family is welcome back any time! The epitome of the perfect vacation renter! We're so pleased that several of our properties offer A/C....sure can make a difference! Remember, too, your loyalty reward, the Valued Returning Guest discount applies any time of the year. Hope to see you again soon. Cheers, Patti & the Great Escape Team

“Great space for family AND the dog”

Reviewed 20 Jun 2016

We have rented at least a dozen properties in the Mission Beach and Pacific Beach areas and this one rates on the top. It is a lovely space, clean, nicely decorated and has 2 side yards. We really enjoyed the outside fire wall and all of the outside space. The location was perfect to ride bikes or go to the beach and restaurants. The property management group was outstanding to deal with. They managed a problem with the TV on a Sunday and were pleasantly available and troubleshot the issue. I would highly recommend this property and we will definitely return.

Owner's reply: The Donahues are welcome return guests to San Diego .....They stayed at a smaller place last year, and moved up to the 3 BR 2 bath home this year....glad they enjoyed the yard layout and will be back next year! Remember the Valued Returning Guest Discount, too!

“Fun and Easy”

Reviewed 17 May 2016

We stayed at Emerald by the Sea for the second time last weekend. The home is nicely decorated and furnished. It is easy to clean once it's time to go. You are in the heart of OB where the average age you see is about 25 so it was perfect for my family attending a college graduation. Great local food and surf. Beach is a couple blocks away and you have two driveway parking spaces. Any closer to the beach and you would be constantly trying to find a place to park. Highly recommend this place. It you book early remember to pay before you show up or the manager gets a little testy. Not like a hotel in that regard. Will definitely return.

Owner's reply: So glad the Hart Family had a good time and we look forward to another visit...they'll see their Valued Returning Guest Discount applied again, too! One little correction...this lovely home is in the heart of PB - Pacific Beach, not OB, Ocean Beach...big difference! Sorry if I sounded "testy", Charlie...certainly not my intention, and I wish I had a more sophisticated software program that provides for "reminders". Ahh, technology does have its limits!

“Great place for celebration”

Reviewed 26 Jul 2015

Our extended family came from No Cal to celebrate our daughter graduating from SDSU. With the home being one story it was great for my older in-laws to be able to come and go with ease. The open layout of the living room, dining, and kitchen allowed everyone to move around freely. The outside patio area was perfect to enjoy the evenings. The beach is not too far and the walk is through a nice quiet neighborhood. Vons is a quick 5 minutes away and access to the freeway is easy. Our San Diego experience was fantastic largely due to staying here along with the helpful and prompt assistance from the staff on a small issue that was handled right away.

Owner's reply: It's always special when a family can come together to celebrate a family member graduating from University, and I'm so pleased the group had a good time! This is, indeed, the perfect home for this type of activity, along with the usual summer-beach-goers. Air conditioning helps make for an even more pleasant experience. Hope they all come back again! Cheers, Patti & The Great Escape Team

“Perfect house for a family!”

Reviewed 8 Jun 2015

This was the perfect house for a week with a family! The house has tons of room, great open floor plan, comfortable kitchen that was surprisingly well stocked for a rental. Location is easy to get groceries, enjoy restaurants and get to the beach. We can't wait to come back!

Owner's reply: +Thanks so much for your kind words Makes my job of helping people vacation even more special! This lovely family visited from Connecticut and discovered San Diego. Hope they take advantage of their Valued Returning guest Discount and come back again!

“Repeat customer!”

Reviewed 3 Oct 2014

We rented this same place last year & we loved it so much we returned for a second stay. This house is so convenient to the beautiful beaches, great restaurants and shopping. It is located in a great neighborhood and parking is never a concern. I strongly recommend this rental for young and old alike. It is fully stocked with all of your essentials and even has beach toys for all to enjoy!!

Owner's reply: Great family who take good care of the property....welcome back any time! These are the kind of folks who make showing up for work so enjoyable!

“Best spot in PB! Location, Location, Location!”

Reviewed 19 May 2013

Who knew renting a house could be so easy and so enjoyable! We were celebrating my daughter's 30th, her engagement and Mother's Day all in one weekend. How great to have a spot family and friends could easily get to have a place to park and walk to all the hot spots in Pacific Beach. Two of our favorite restaurants were just blocks away. The open lay out and the area for dining outdoors made it a perfect gathering place. Everyone was comfortable and pleased to have a great location so close to the beach and fun! Thanks for an enjoyable stay and we will definitely return!

Owner's reply: These delightful guests were an absolute joy! The guests who followed them were very pleasantly surprised to see the wonderful floral decorations Dale Marie and her family made for the outdoor patio! I;m so glad they had a good time and the door is always open! Thanks for the kind words, too!
