Let the rest of the world drift away when you set foot in the Pacific Dream, a luxury vacation rental on the beach in San Diego's idyllic Mission Beach. Close to everything, yet worlds away, get ready to leave your car parked the entire week. You won't need to venture more than a few feet to enjoy one of the most gorgeous beaches in the world, discover plentiful food and drink options, and enjoy the numerous outdoor activities at your fingertips.
This building is made up of two 3-bedroom/3-full-bath units which have been completely remodeled and are offered for the first time for rent in August 2015. The building was literally taken down to the studs and reconceptualized into a luxury beachfront dream getaway. Each unit has been carefully outfitted to offer the luxury of a high-end beach hotel with the conveniences of home. Choose from the Penthouse or the Playa Patio, each approximately 1600 square feet, or rent both units for larger groups.
Both units have fully retractable doors opening the living areas to the ocean, and master bedrooms with private oceanview balconies on the second floor. The Playa Patio takes up the entire ground floor and half of the second floor, with a 1-car attached garage and one extra parking space. It has an exclusive use beach-front patio with fire pit and outdoor shower. The Penthouse takes up the entire third floor and the other half of the second floor, with a detached 2-car side-by-side garage.
Each kitchen is outfitted with high end appliances and brand new housewares—crock pots, mixers, baking dishes, Keurig coffee makers, blenders—everything you need to feed the masses in style, even with sand between the toes. Refrigerators have ice makers and filtered water. Each unit has a built-in gas BBQ grill, and full patio dining sets for oceanview dining.
Other comforts of home include widescreen high definition TVs with DVR in the living and master bedrooms, and smart fireplaces which can be set to emit heat or simply provide ambiance on a hot day.
Special touches abound in these units, from LED accent lighting to plush linens, helping you fall deeper into the dream. Master bedrooms have oversized walk-in showers with rain shower heads, and multiple body jets and hand sprayers. Second bedrooms also have private full bathrooms and private decks on the rear of the building.
Each unit has a laundry room with new washers and dryers. Beach towels and lounge chairs are provided. And bedrooms are equipped with blackout curtains so you can catch up on that well-deserved rest and relaxation.
But how do you choose between the two units?
There is no denying the appeal of the Playa Patio, with the large oceanfront patio which becomes an extended living area when the fully retractable doors are opened. And the beach is literally steps away—all you have to do is hop over the sea wall. The fire pit with love seat is an essential gathering place for watching the waves and the people strolling the boardwalk. It all feels very spacious and relaxed.
The Penthouse does not have a fire pit, but instead a 3rd-floor oceanview terrace that also acts as an extended living area when the fully retractable doors are opened. Guests enjoy greater privacy on the Penthouse level, as the looky-loos on the boardwalk are not able to stop and gawk at how much fun you're having.
If stairs are a problem, you may want to opt for the Playa Patio, as the Penthouse is located on the second and third floors of the building, and there is no elevator. But if you're ok with stairs, that might just be your excuse to skip the gym this week!
Layout is very similar between the two units—first bedrooms are located on the same level as the main living area/kitchen, along with a detached full bathroom and laundry room. Master and second bedrooms (with en suite bathrooms) are located on the second level, with oceanview balconies in each master.
Now the only question is, which unit would you like? Contact us with any additional questions or for booking! We look forward to having you!
