MARTINIQUE is an isle of French charm, cuisine and culture, and also the inspiration for the Martinique suite at Villa Caribe. Beautiful beyond words, Martinique captured the attention of Paul Gauguin, whose paintings are among the world's most prized treasures. We believe you will treasure your stay at the Martinique at Villa Caribe. Beautifully furnished with your comfort and the style of the Caribbean in mind, Martinique offers accommodations for up to four with a Cal-King in the bedroom and a queen sofa sleeper. This property is pet friendly, located at the back of the building and does not offer an ocean view like Villa Caribe's other two 1 bedroom properties (Trinidad and Tobago) - Unit is approximately 500 sq ft and not recommended for 4 adults, however 2 adults and 2 kids would be a great fit.
There are three beach cruiser bicycles in the garage shared on a first-come-first-served basis.
Regarding Villa Caribe's location: Three blocks to your left you'll find Sunset Cliffs Nature Park - a great place to spend the day exploring cliffs, caves and tide pools!
Directly in front of you lies a spacious patio area – with a convenient gas BBQ, a small sandy “beach” area we created to enjoy cocktails and the breathtaking views of the sunset - and, of course, miles and miles of deep blue ocean where we often see migrating whales, playful pods of dolphins and adventurous surfers. ASK if this unit has AC!
We are located on a small cliff overlooking an enchanting, rocky, tide pool-explorer's beach (and surfing area!). Enjoy unmatched ocean views from the property or head down to the beach - just a short 1/2 block walk away!
A few blocks to your right is the casual seaside town of Ocean Beach. Stroll along Newport Avenue and take in the array of small shops and boutiques. From antiques to surfboards, sandwich shops to ocean-front fine dining – and bars and taverns in between – Ocean Beach is friendly, informal and fun!
In the evening, enjoy cocktails while listening to the surf, or take a romantic stroll on the famous Ocean Beach pier, and enjoy the lights of San Diego from the over-water restaurant.
Be sure to catch the fireworks display from Sea World - only 10 minutes away! Return home to your ocean-front, cliff-side hideaway, enjoy some wine with a loved one, and listen to the waves crash on the beach. Paradise!
Villa Caribe is also close to all San Diego has to offer: 30 seconds from a rocky beach-explorer’s playground (beach access is a short walk around the block), 2 minutes to the heart of Ocean Beach, 6 minutes to the charming village of old Pt. Loma, with its shops, restaurants, and the San Diego Yacht Club, 10 minutes to Sea World, Old Town, the Gas Lamp District, the airport, Fashion Valley shopping mall, 15 minutes to the World Famous San Diego Zoo and Balboa Park, and about 30 minutes to Legoland and the Wild Animal Park.

The good is that it was in a quiet neighborhood. It was very important to us that we be able to sleep well. We had a great bed, and it was quiet at night and for that matter it seemed like it was quiet all the time. At first we were concerned since we had a tough time finding the place at night for the first time at the neighborhood had a few run down spots. Once the light was up, and after a day or two, we could tell this was a great choice for us!

We stayed in the Martinque with out 21 month old and it was perfect. The rental was clean and had nice upgrades for a beach area rental. The bed was comfy, nice kitchen and even a jet tub! Loved the enclosed yard - it was perfect for my daughter to play and for me to relax in the lawn chairs to enjoy the sun and enjoy the amazing ocean view. We BBQ for dinner and used the spa. We didn't have garage parking with our unit but it wasn't hard to find parking on the street. Oh and the location was perfect with OB shops and restaurants in one direction and sunset cliffs in the other. Made for awesome morning runs :)

We enjoyed or stay immensely! The location is so convenient for tourists visiting the area. We loved the laid back vibe of Ocean Beach. The condo was very clean and came supplied with everything we would need with regards to kitchen supplies and linens. We enjoyed using the bikes and explores the beaches that way! The condo was a bit dark, but we spent most of our time outdoors anyways so it didn't matter. Dealing with Nancy's Vacation Rentals was easy and convenient!
A peaceful and attractive rental in a lovely location.

My husband and I were relieved to find a place where we could bring our dog and feel comfortable. Our rental was clean and in a friendly neighborhood. We are looking forward to a longer stay in the future.

I stayed at this lovely condo for a week. the staff was very helpful. The other guests were great and lots of fun. The maintainance crew kept the grouds neat and tidy. I had 2 dogs with me and this place was grat for them. I took them to the beach every day and we came home sandy and messy. there's a hose to clean them and a yard for them to sit and dry off. All in all a 5 star vacation

I booked this rental on the same day I wanted to start using it. The staff was incredibly helpful and quick to respond to my request. The rental itself was clean and functional with a great yard for relaxing and spending a lazy afternoon. I mostly needed a place to sleep at night, but I ended up using the amenities (hot tub, fire pit and yard in general) a number of times because it was so pleasant. My only complaint was the off street parking, which caused some frustration when returning to the house in the evening and not being able to find parking nearby. Other than that it was great!

I had the pleasure to spend a 3 weeks here. It was a very wonderful location with pictureque views of the ocean. It is close to everything that San Diego has to offer and the staff is very receptive to your every need. I highly recommend staying here and will be back every year.
