Tourmaline House is a brand-new single family house 2 blocks from the beach. Here you will be treated to a designer house furnished to fulfill the needs of the modern traveler.
Built 2011, this gorgeous pet-friendly home is unique in the Pacific / Mission Beach area. There are few vacation homes steps to the beach that are as new and modern and well-equipped as this one. Key amenities include WiFi, 2 complete entertainment centers - one in Living Room, one in Master Bedroom - with LCDs, Blue-Rays and surround sound; 2 luxurious full baths – 1 with a Jacuzzi, enclosed grassy backyard with barbecue, table for 6 and built-in speakers so you can listen to music while you entertain outdoors... 2 bikes and complete beach gear available year round. Families with little kids are welcome as we offer a portable crib, high chair and toys included in the rental. We are pet-friendly: well-behaved pets are welcome with an additional pet fee.
The house sits 2 blocks away from Tourmaline Surf Park, a 5 minute walk to the beach. This part is the north end of Pacific Beach, and a local's paradise. Not only is the beach gorgeous with views to the La Jolla cliffs, lush natural landscaping and scores of palm trees, but also it is never crowded, as it is mostly known by the locals. Enjoy the convenience of bathrooms, lifeguard, picnic tables and parking lot. Popular surf spot. The beach access has no stairs, like the rest of Pacific Beach.
Take the bikes provided and stroll along the beach boardwalk, easily reachable 2 blocks south of the house at Law St. The beach at Law St (Palisades Park) is another great beach area to visit.
When it comes to shopping and dining, a short walk away from the house - about 3 minutes – you'll find Turquoise St, where the Albertson’s grocery store and numerous shops and restaurants are located. You will also be equally close to cute cafes and restaurants on Cass St.
Easily reachable on bike are Garnet Avenue, the center of the beach night life, and the shopping strip in Birdrock.

We will provide you with a detailed interactive map with lots of local tips - favorite restaurants, clubs and shopping, scenic bike-drive rides and seasonal events to enhance your San Diego experience.
Sustainable and Comfortable
We are taking steps to reduce our energy consumption while keeping our guests as comfortable as ever. Our home now has a tankless water heater and our new acquisition, a whole house fan that circulates the ocean breeze throughout the house, keeping everyone cool for a fraction of an AC's energy usage. Coming soon, we'll be installing solar panels to harness the ever present San Diego sunlight! Your vacation's carbon footprint will be tiny when you stay at the Tourmaline House.
We are 18 minutes away from Downtown, airport and Convention Center. We often house business travelers who bring their families along or simply split costs with roommates. Why stay at a boring, expensive downtown hotel when you can work and have a vacation at the same time?

Chegamos na casa um pouco antes do natal, e já na chegada nos sentimos em casa, até uma árvore de natal havia sido colocada para nos receber.
A casa é muito bem localizada, perto da praia e do calçadão de Pacific Beach. O supermercado fica muito perto também, o que facilita para ir a pé. As bicicletas foram bastante usadas para passeios pelo bairro. Apesar de ser inverno, o clima de San Diego possibilita um agradável aproveitamento da praia e dos bares e restaurantes da região. A casa é limpa, confortável, organizada e muito bem equipada. Nos primeiros 10 dias ficamos em 7 pessoas na casa e foi muito confortável para todos. A Juliana é uma pessoa muito atenciosa e nos ajudou prontamente em todos os momentos solicitados, a gerente Lupe também é muito prestativa e simpática. Recomendamos muito este lugar na linda San Diego.

Perfect House Pacific Beach
Left on 08/23/2013 for a stay in August 2013 | A FlipKey verified reviewer
Just returned from a week's stay at Tourmaline House and enjoyed every minute of it! The house is superbly equiped with everything you could possibly require. Especially useful was all the equipment for the beach (very comfy chairs) and even a buggy to transport them all down to there. The 5 mins walk to Pacific Beach was no problem and I am so pleased we decided not to stay on the actual beachfront. My impression was that the so called "boardwalk" along the front would be an attractive place to stay and wander. Don't believe it! If you like Blackpool promenade in august with all the litter, local homeless people, T shrt shops and masses of pedestrian traffic, bikes and rollerbladers, then it may be for you. However, the thought of paying a premium to stay on the front defies all reason when you can stay 5 mins away on a quiet road with plenty of privacy. We took the bikes (provided) up to La Jolla one day - an easy ride along "Millionaires avenue", past the sea front mansions and into the up market town of La Jolla - well worth a visit. We returned there to eat on a few occasions too. The childern loved Pacific Beach - great surfing and very safe with lifeguards at regular intervals, but it was the location of the house, the home comforts provided by the owner and spacious accomodation that really made the week enjoyable for me. The bus stops outside the house so trips into San Diego centre and upto La Jolla are also made easy for those without a car (like us). I cannot recommend this property enough if you are thinking of staying around Pacific Beach and Juliana's attention to detail and communication during the booking process and during our stay were all faultless. Thank you for a great holiday - we hope to return one day! Read more

After years of battling the MB crowds, we opted for this PB home. What a gem! It's in a great location, close to the beach and just far enough away from the bustle of Garnet Street activities. Our 4 year old grandson loved the bunk and the toys ( for the beach and home). We loved the secure backyard where we felt comfort in knowing that he could play safely outside. The house was a perfect fit for our family of 7. Juliana has not skimped on anything, providing the best in extras for everything from the beach to home entertainment to all of your dining and cooking needs. We highly recommend this beautiful home!! Read more
Thanks for sharing! We will be happy to have you back anytime!

Tourmaline Beach house was the perfect place for our family to spend a relaxing week at the Beach. The house is very comfortable and clean and had everything we needed. It is a quick walk to the beach and boardwalk. The bikes, boards and beach equipment were an added bonus. We will definitely be back! Read more
Thanks for reviewing your stay. We noticed how much our guests enjoy the bikes, boards and beach gear that we provide, so we keep adding more. By popular demand, we now have a scooter and a wagon where guests can carry all the fun stuff to the beach - including the kids - making the walk to the beach more fun for everybody.
See you next summer, guys!
Great Location and Comfortable!

Loved the place - it was perfect for my kids and parents! We all go out of the beach cruisers and boogie boards that were provided! Close to everything - easy to find. Back yard was just right for relaxing and letting the dog rest after a day at the dog beach! Thanks so much - we had a blast and can't wait to come back! Read more
We feel like we are doing our job right when a guest says that everybody enjoyed their time at the house - including the family dog. Thanks for sharing!

This house is newly renovated with modern furnishings and appliances. Although it was just the 2 of us this trip, this house would make a great place to share with family or friends - 3 large bedrooms and 2 modern/roomy bathrooms, both with double sinks! Very roomy even with our 2 large dogs. We loved the backyard to just sit and relax and was a great place for our dogs to run around.
We loved this place and will definitely attempt to stay here on our next visit - definitely the best place we've stayed in the many, many years of vacationing in the PB/MB area. And the owner was very helpful and always responded immediately. Read more
Thanks for reviewing tour stay. I'm happy you enjoyed the location - I agree with you: one of the things I love about the house is that it's close to everything.

We really enjoyed our staying in San Diego in this beautiful beach house. The location was good, 5 minutes to the beach, where you can take a surfboard, 10 minutes to the restaurants. The house is furnished elegantly and tastefully. Read more

Me and my friend stayed at Tourmaline House in July during 6 days. We were pleasantly surprised staying in well kept, clean, convenient and comfortable rental house. All rooms are decorated with a great sense of style and soul. Good location for swimming, near the bus stops, cafes and stores. The best choice for a group of friends. We had a great time in San Diego also due to staying there. Read more
Thanks for choosing us out of so many rentals, and for making our house your headquarters for exploring the US west coast. When you are travelling from afar, where the distances are so long, it makes sense to recover at a spacious house with the comforts of home.
Wishing you a great year and looking forward to having you back sometime,

A most comfortable stay
Left on 07/19/2011 for a stay in July 2011 | A FlipKey verified reviewer
We had a great time in San Diego which was in large part due to the accommodation- we were lucky to be one of the first renters so everything was immaculate and the house features many creature comforts. It was a short walk to Tourmaline Beach, which is great if you like to surf; if you want to hit the beaches where swimming and boogie boarding are allowed they are a few blocks away and as we have have young kids, we found it a bit far for them to walk (especially on the way back). However, we rented a vehicle so we drove and found plenty of parking close to the family oriented areas during the week. The house is perfectly suited to families with kids as there is laundry, plenty of towels, a bbq, bunk beds etc. There is a grocery store within walking distance that has everything you need and the neighbors were very friendly. Juliana answered all of our questions quickly and was very accommodating. We would and will most certainly stay there again. Read more
Thanks for the review. We look forward to having you back soon.
I'd like to say that for those who don't surf, all they have to do is walk 30 feet away from the lifeguard station on Tourmaline beach, left or right. Works for me and my kids when we go there. The closest swimming only area is on Law St, which is also within walking distance from the house.
