I highly recommend this home and I will absolutely be back!

by Amber W.
Amazing vacation home for my two teenage daughters and me. The house was beautiful and had everything needed to be comfortable both in the home and on the beach (chairs, boogie boards, an outdoor shower for sand). There’s even a garage for parking so I never worried about having to find a spot in a very busy area of town. Speaking of the beach, the location was perfect! It’s an easy 2 minute walk to the sand. Everything else (groceries, activities, restaurants) was within a 5-10 minute walk from the house. The vacation company did a great job communicating and even checked in regularly to make sure that we had everything we needed. I highly recommend this home and I will absolutely be back!

I would definitely stay here again without a doubt.

by Jeff D.
This was the cleanest VRBO I have ever stayed at. The property managers were super responsive and the unit is impeccably clean. 50 yards to the strand and enclosed proximity to restaurants, bars, grocery, and the catamaran resort. I would definitely stay here again without a doubt.

The attention to detail and cleanliness of the cottage is impeccable.

by Vince I.
The attention to detail and cleanliness of the cottage is impeccable. The photos are accurate but do not do justice to the physical space. There is nothing lacking to make your stay stress free. Bluewater Vacation rental was in constant contact to ensure that if anything was needed they were there to help. We were also graciously given supplies for our Thanksgiving visit. The only issue with the cottage is the proximity to Mission Boulevard which at times can be disruptive during the day if you want to relax on the enclosed patio but is not an issue during the night. In short, I would consider staying here again and most certainly consider any other property managed by Bluewater.

No detail left unattended. Excellence in every way.

by Katie S.
This property is better in person than the pictures show which is rare. It was spotless, roomy, great outdoor spaces, comfortable beds, comfortable living room furniture and kitchen appliances and dishes etc were top notch. Highly recommend and hope to stay here again in the future.

Cute Home

by Cassandra
This home was perfect for our last minute trip. It\'s super cozy, clean and perfect location right on Mission Blvd. The garage is very small but I\'m glad I reviewed the house guide before hand and rented a smaller vehicle. We had an amazing time and we would happily be back!

Everything was great, would definitely stay again.

A comfortable, great place. Close to the beach. Furnished well. Tasteful.

by Sara H.
A comfortable, great place. Close to the beach. Furnished well. Tasteful. Clean and has all the extras. Full kitchen with kids\' plates and spoons too. A little loud sometimes but to be expected right next to the main road. Would stay there on vacation again!

Wow!! Beautiful in the photos, but even better in person!

by Jenny H.
Wow!! Beautiful in the photos, but even better in person! The location was perfect! Steps to the beach, yet private and away from the crowds when it was time to relax. The decor and finishes in this home are unbelievable and the home is equipped with everything you can think of, and then some! It was very easy to get in with the instructions provided to us and they checked in on us via text throughout the stay to make sure we had everything that we needed. My family had a great time there and we will put this one on her trip to stay there next year as well!

Could not recommend more for those looking to stay in PB.

by Corey A.
Walking distance to everything Pacific Beach has to offer - beach, restaurants/bars, Supermarket (Ralph’s). The private outdoor area, with the outdoor shower and large sliding glass doors, made the space feel much larger than what the pictures show. Overall, just a great layout for friends looking to stay in San Diego. The garage was a bonus, did not have a car by allowed friends we knew nearby to park. Overall management was helpful and responsive, checking in throughout my stay. Could not recommend more for those looking to stay in PB.

by Tamra G
