Vacation Rentals in San Diego, California

Rene heads to the sunny beaches of San Diego to help Courtney and Steve find the perfect rental for a kids-free getaway with their friends. But with four couples to consider, will space, budget, or luxury reign supreme?
With its amazing weather, laidback lifestyle and some of the best beaches in the country, it is easy to see why San Diego is nicknamed 'America's Finest City.' San Diego is located on the southern tip of California -- about two hours south of LA and just above the border of Mexico. It is also the eighth largest city in the country. For more information on San Diego visit sandiego.org.

Courtney and Steve are in San Diego on business and have decided to extend their stay for some fun with friends. With three couples on their way and a $6,000 a week budget, Rene got straight to work.

"We are in San Diego because we have a couple of clients out here. We are financial coaches. And, then we just decided we should stay for a week," said Courtney.

For their perfect 'sweet retreat' they want the following:

  • Sleeps eight comfortably
  • Large kitchen
  • Great entertaining area
  • Near restaurants and night life
  • On or near the ocean
Rene showed them three totally different houses in three different neighborhoods of San Diego. The trio toured properties in La Jolla, Mission Bay, and Mission Hills.

Wooden Home in La Jolla for Rent - It is a wooden residence in the heart of La Jolla, which is 12 miles north of the downtown San Diego but it is very close to the ocean. This hip home got its name because the walls are made of redwood, the celling is cedar and the floors are bamboo. It has five bedrooms, three bathrooms, and up-to-date appliances. It rents for $4,950 per week, which falls way under their $6,000 budget. For more information visit vrbo.com.

Award Winning Beachfront Property for Rent - This property is a breathtaking, ultra-mod beachfront property in San Diego's Mission Bay. With top of the line appliances, an in-home lounge, and a Jacuzzi on the top deck, this house is a party waiting to happen! It has three bedrooms, three bathrooms and is just over 3,000 square feet. The price tag is $6,450 for a week. Will this couple be willing to break the bank for a property that is a bedroom short of their requirements? For more information visit www.sdbeachking.com.

Home in Mission Hills for Rent - This vacation rental is a classic Mission Hills property in San Diego. Mission Hills is one of the oldest and best preserved communities in southern California. The home is a 1920s-style, Spanish bungalow consisting of four bedrooms, three and a half baths, a large outdoor entertaining area and a layout that leaves Courtney and Steve seeing double since there are two master suites and two kitchens. But the property isn't walking distance from the ocean, which was important to Steve. It rents for $4,500 a week. For more information visit pacificcoastvacationproperties.com.
