Just steps to the sand, this property has recently been completely updated to provide you with the feel of luxury. Take our boogie boards and beach equipment out for the day and come home to grill on your private front porch or walk to the restaurants in Pacific Beach. This unit is laid out to comfortably sleep 4 in beds. It has a separate dining area and a full kitchen, so you always have the option of dining in or experiencing the vast array of PB restaurants and bars.

The space

You have a designated parking spot, so you can come and go as you please. All of San Diego's attractions such as Sea World, the bay, the zoo, and Balboa Park are easily accessible.

Interaction with guests

We are a professional management company and are local and available as needed but we have setup all of our properties to be effectively self-service. That said we always have at least one employee on call most hours of the day and local support can be had in person within 30 minutes in most cases

Other things to note

For stays longer than 30 days, I require a deposit in the amount of one month's rent to be paid offline due 60 days prior to arrival.

Check In
This unit is in a great location, very short walk to the beach and CLEAN. Bed was comfy. Parking spot was tight (2011Acura RDX) but awesome to have. Beach chairs, towels, boogie boards and umbrella were all great to have as well. This unit except for the few amenities that were having issues, was a good value. The patio needs some kind of light to make it more enjoyable. My amenities issues: Pictured for this unit was a TV in the bedroom. It was out for repair, normally I would not care but I was there with my daughter and her friend and I was going to give them some privacy in the evenings and not be under foot. Betsy responded quickly when I called because I thought maybe it was stolen. Turns out it wasn’t working and they were dealing with a warranty issue. This was unfortunate but this didn’t really help my lack of a TV. Also shown was a outside propane fire pit( which I was very much looking forward to) After messy with it for more an hour and not able to get it to work, I called Betsy, again she was very prompt in responding. She offered the unit next to us fire pit which I did manage to get working. Yay! Unfortunately it was pretty late by then and we called it a night. We were looking forward to using it the next night. Unfortunately someone arrived in the unit the next day so we could no longer use it. There is no light on the outside patio in this unit which makes the patio pretty useless at night without the fire pit so that was disappointing. I did request maybe the use of some bikes D/T my inconvenience and Betsy did offer use some bikes but they turned out to be unusable

This place is perfect! So many special touches...being at the beach, they made sure there are chairs, towels beach equipment, ice (Website hidden by Airbnb) nice not to have to go purchase that. the place was cute, and clean..we would stay there again! 50 steps to the beach and walking distance to the strand, full of food and fun! Thank you for a great experience.

Great little place with everything you'll need. Super clean, quiet and steps from the beach. Would recommend to any couple or small family.

Location is great, the condo is updated and was clean. Like the easy access of not having to deal with a door key... if back in the area would definitely try and stay again...

Place was exactly as advertised. Perfect for a little family. 5 houses down from the beach can’t get any better. All the amenities you need for a quick trip

Great communication and location.

Great location close to everything. Super friendly people in a less crowded area. Perfect for kids and family.

Very close to the beach, Aaron was a great host. You wouldn’t be disappointed!

This is a spacious little place. It was comfortable and roomy. All the towels and l Blankets we needed. And a well stocked kitchen minutes from a grocery store. This was near a quieter part of the beach, so not over flowing with tourists play. I lived the keyless entry system, no keys to lose or manage! Checkin and checkout was a breeze. Awesome pillows on the bed too. All around a great place to stay.

Great location by the water. Look forward to staying there again.

What a wonderful stay and just feet from the beach. Would definitely stay again. Everything you’ll need in a Air B &B!

Clean and cozy. Location was perfect for beach access. We would definitely book this cottage again. Thank you for your hospitality. We had a wonderful time!

Great stay here!

This my first try at Air BnB and it was all I wanted it to be. They were very quick with responses when we had a question while there. Great amenities also!

Apartment is exactly as presented. Easy walk to both the ocean and the bay. Use of the bicycles and beach equipment.was great. Parking space was a big plus. Any questions were answered within a couple of minutes. Great neighborhood. Would certainly stay there again. Aaron and Betsy are great to deal with.

Amazing apartment! Only a few steps to the beach, all clean and amazingly fast response! Could not have been better if we ever need an apartment in San Diego again we will be coming back!

Exactly like the pictures. 500ft or closer to the sand. I used to live in PB/MB area and this is exactly what I expected and hoped for in a beach condo in SD. All the essentials are included, and more that I did not utilize, so I am sure you will not be disappointed. I stayed by myself, but it would be great for a couple - also, there is a pullout/convertible type couch that could fit one or 2 people for a night.

Excellent beach home located just steps from the beach!

We loved staying at Bens Beach Bungalow. The location is perfect if you want quick access to the beach, some mornings we would make coffee and walk up to the boardwalk to watch the sun come up. The kitchen is a full kitchen, was clean, stocked with everything you need from cutlery and plates to a good coffee maker. There's a great sitting area outside, and even access to beach bikes, chairs, toys, towels and blankets to make for a great time outdoors. The only thing that took a bit of getting used to is the unit is actually a first floor apartment... it is done up beautifully but you can hear people above and around you. It wasn't noisy per se, just movement of neighbors going to work etc. we met several of the people living there and they were always cheerful and helpful. All in all a good experience

This is such a great place to take advantage of San Diego and the beach! We loved the Mission Bay area!!

Great place, great location! Noise from people upstairs is pretty loud too. Otherwise we loved it!

Great little place. Comfortable and in a fun neighborhood. Perfect for a weekend getaway. Aaron is a terrific and responsive host. Another reviewer had mentioned some noise from upstairs but we didn't notice any at all. Will be back!

This apartment was spotless and had all the beach equipment we needed plus bikes. The patio area was adorable and we used both the grill and kitchen and had everything we needed to enjoy our meals. When there was an issue with the apartment being available for the original dates, we were quickly offered 2 alternate locations and loved the house we were given on the bay for our last night. The only other issue we had were the neighbors (they were staying temporarily and are not still there) having a party on our patio the night we checked in and they quickly reached out to them and even came to make sure the issue was resolved. We met other neighbors who were long term and they were nice, friendly people. Communication was great and customer service was excellent when needed. I wouldn’t hesitate to stay again!

Aaron and Betsy were were responsive and friendly. We needed pot holders and received them the following day. We inquired if there was a blender and received a new one later in the week. Clean, functional beach apartment. Bed very comfortable. Had all kitchen basics needed to eat in and cook. Good location-close to beach, very close to flag separating the swim and surf areas, not far from Catamaran Hotel. Equipped with beach chairs, beach towels, boogie boards, small amount of beach toys for young kids, bikes. Assigned parking space provided although best for smaller cars/SUVs. We have a 3rd row SUV and although we were able to get in spot, it was a challenge if neighbors across the alley parked in front of their garage (legally within red line). We had to park elsewhere 1 night and opted to Uber another. It’s the beach, so ability to go with the flow is always best . Bottom apartment, so might hear upstairs neighbors walking around. All in all good stay, and we will keep it on our list of options for future visits.

My family and I enjoyed Aaron's place for a week in August. Aaron and his staff were very responsive to our needs. Check-in and check-out were a piece of cake. The place is newly remodeled and has all the amenities you need for a beach vacation. Beach towels, umbrella, beach chairs and boogie boards were all on-premise. They even supplied a pack-n-play for my 6 month old. My only gripe would be the umbrella was broken so it would fly away if it was extremely windy (which happened a few times). The location was perfect as we were less than a block away from the beach. I had to do some work throughout the week and it was great having such a short walk back to the place from the beach when something came up. I would stay here again in a heart beat.

We loved our stay, only wished we would have planned better and stayed longer. Next time we will plan a much longer stay at Bens!! Amazing location and great place to stay!!

Location is key... steps to the beach ( you can hear ocean waves), close to the boardwalk and restaurants. Quite neighborhood and an assigned parking space is a big plus too. Apartment is spacious and comfortable. We enjoyed our stay... will be coming back! Great communication with the host!

Aaron's place was the perfect spot for my San Diego get away! The location is unbeatable and the unit had everything we needed.

This spot is wonderful. Very close to the beach. The neighborhood is pretty calm. The apartment is nice. Enough space for two adults and two kids to be completely comfortable for an entire week. It’s less than a minute walk to the beach. We spent every morning having coffee and watching the sun rise without any hassle. The restaurants within a five minute walking distance are a huge plus too.

Excellent host, great location near the beach, super clean home with great amenities.
