Breathtaking View of Pacific Ocean--Dramatic Sunsets

Welcome to Villa Mar Vista's big backyard with POOL and HOT TUB--Among the largest backyards of Oceanfront Homes in San Diego.  Free cancellation with full refund if cancellation is made more than 60 days prior to your arrival date.

Your family can relax in comfort with ocean views from your living room. Villa Mar Vista encompasses over 3600 square feet of living space in 6 bedrooms (four bedrooms have king beds), plus two dining areas, and a living room. We even provide you with porta-cribs, high chairs and games for the kids. The home is furnished with comfort in mind for large family groups.

You will have the perfect environment your 3-generation family group, reunion or corporate retreat. The huge backyard has a stainless steel BBQ Grill and a brand new aluminum Kettler Ping-Pong table. The oceanfront home sits on an estate-sized lot measuring approximately 70 feet wide by 180 feet deep. The fenced and gated back yard is approximately 5000 square feet and the large grassy front yard is great for playing soccer with the kids. There is even a 24-foot by 30-foot pool deck with oceanview seating for 20 persons along with additional seating and a large above-ground Hot Tub with ocean views.

Sunset Cliffs Nature Park at Your Door

Right outside your front door lies the 2-mile long oceanfront Sunset Cliffs Nature Park. Come enjoy the unspoiled beauty of Sunset Cliffs where joggers, walkers, hikers and bicyclists all enjoy the most unspoiled urban coastline in California. Directly west of Villa Mar Vista are tidepools that the kids can explore.

There are 5 sandy cove beaches nestled among the bluffs and the closest small cove beach (50 feet wide by 20 feet deep) is two blocks north of the house away and a large cove beach (approx. 400 feet wide by 50 feet deep) is two blocks south. For the closest beach with lifeguard towers you can take the kids to nearby Ocean Beach that stretches from the Ocean Beach pier (north of Villa Mar Vista) to the Mission Bay channel. This life guarded beach is totally flat with no bluffs and is over 1/2 mile long by 200 feet wide--it is a huge beach.

Residents and visitors alike will say "hello" on your way to go antique shopping on Newport Avenue, visit dozens of shops and restaurants or perhaps just to try your luck on the West Coast's longest fishing pier. The friendly atmosphere of San Diego's finest beach town will pleasantly surprise you.

Plenty of Room For All

Villa Mar Vista is a sprawling Ranch-Style family home with an "L- shaped" configuration. The dining room, living room and one of the master bedrooms all facing (west) enjoy gorgeous ocean views.

Offering 6 bedrooms, two dining areas, and living room--with all 5 bedrooms having direct access to a bath and 3 of the bedrooms enjoying a King size bed--the biggest 3-generation families have room to spread out. Large family reunion and corporate retreat groups will enjoy the new 60-inch Plasma HDTV with Hi-Def Cable Box and over 1200 channels. All bedrooms have Cable TV and WiFi throughout the house. The den opens onto the patio with outdoor seating for your group, and the huge fenced and gated yard. The living room and dining rooms are spacious for large groups and afford unparalleled views of the Pacific Ocean. The home is not fancy or pretentious--it is meant for large families to be able to spread out and relax.

Villa Mar Vista is among just a few oceanfront homes available in the Sunset Cliffs area of Point Loma--located due west of downtown San Diego. This means you will be less than 10 minutes from all the major San Diego attractions--Sea World, Old Town, the San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park, the historic Gaslamp District, Little Italy, the new Midway Aircraft Carrier Museum, the Convention Center. This puts you closer to San Diego's best attractions than any other oceanfront estate-sized home in San Diego.

Sunset Cliffs is a great location--just two blocks away is a little village retail area with shops and restaurants. Walking several blocks further brings you to the Ocean Beach pier which is the longest pleasure pier on the West Coast. There are hundreds of food and entertainment choices in nearby Ocean Beach. The amazing San Diego Wild Animal Park, Legoland and the sights of Mexico are just a half-hour by car.

Private Swimming Pool and Hot Tub--Optional pool/hot tub heat is $99 per night with a minimum number of nights equal to the length of your stay less one night.  (A 7-night stay will have a minimum optional pool/hot tub heating fee of 6 nights X $99 = $594).  Optional pool/hot tub heat at the rate of $99 per day is necessary to heat the in-ground hot tubs for those in-ground pools which have in-ground hot tubs attached to the swimming pools as is the case at Villa Sunset Modern and Villa Magnifica--as the swimming pool and the hot tub are on the same plumbing and heating system.  At our other homes that have above-ground self-contained spas that are not attached to swimming pools like Cabo Hermosa and Villa Bermuda Beach there is no charge for heating the above ground hot tub at either home.  Likewise, our Villa Mar Vista home has no charge for heating the above-ground self-contained hot tub as the $99 per day optional pool heat fee at Villa Mar Vista only heats the in-ground pool.  So, if you desire free hot tub heating, please choose our homes with an above ground self-contained hot tub which is our Villa Mar Vista home, our Villa Bermuda Beach and our Cabo Hermosa homes.

5 Star Family vacation We had 16 of us staying at this property. Ages ranged from 3 year old, to adults. Everyone had their own bed, kids used pull out couch so they could all sleep together. Location is perfect for ocean view, watched dolphins from the living room. Pool was perfect for the kids, deck had an awesome view. Property was easy to get to and parking was never a problem. Would recommend.

5 Star: Joseph was very kind, responsive, and quick to address our needs Thanks Joseph for an enjoyable stay. We would highly recommend this property.
5 Star: Great location, great owner The location is beautiful alongside the famous sunset cliffs. You have floor to ceiling windows in the living room for you to watch the sunset every night as well as an open deck in the front with a fire pit. We were winding down a long 3 city vacation ending perfectly in San Diego. We stayed for about 1 week and thoroughly enjoyed the luxurious pool that transitions from walking/wading depth to 6ft. The hot tub functioned perfectly. The pool/patio furniture was also very relaxing. The great room was perfect for entertaining. The ping pong table was an added benefit as well. There was a clean grill with extra propane, but we did not use. Sleeping arrangements worked well for our group of 8 with every couple/single getting their own bedroom. The nearby sunset cliffs downtown (?) is really active with plenty of good food. We did not expect to see so many high quality restaurants in this area. We were also a short drive to Gas Lamp, Petco park, the zoo, and the airport. The hikes by the property were enjoyable too.

5/5 Wonderful experience! Rating Details: The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: I booked this beautiful home in early November 2020 to escape reality for my birthday with a small group of friends. We wanted a space that felt all-inclusive so we could avoid going anywhere and putting anyone at risk. This home has everything you need on site and felt like a resort-style getaway with the intimacy you can only get from a vacation rental. The hot tub was a huge asset as it was a little chilly for the pool most days. The location is absolutely incredible with Sunset Cliffs literally in your front yard! We loved the layout of the house... its homey but spacious. Thank you Joseph for a wonderful experience!!

5/5 Great, relaxing "staycation" It's hard to get away during our current virus-related emergency, but this place was just the ticket. It had everything -- tons of room, lots of bedrooms and bathrooms, a great kitchen, a front and back yard, an amazing view, a pool, and a hot tub. (Not to mention careful attention to cleaning and sanitization.) We didn't have to go anywhere, and our daughter had a blast roaming the grounds and playing in the water. It was great to relax for a while.

The location of the property cannot be beat with breathtaking views of the ocean and a beautiful sunset every night. We regularly went for walks/jogs along the cliffs. Close to shopping and beaches.

Joseph, Jan - We had a great time, and are so grateful for your immaculate attention to detail. Everything was p-e-r-f-e-c-t!
Why are there only 5 stars to select? I'd give this house 6, or 60 or more! First off, you can't beat the location. Sitting on the front patio at the fire pit watching the sunset over the Pacific Ocean is pretty much heaven on earth. And the house itself boasts a spacious 5 bedrooms, 3 baths, and a large open plan living, dining and kitchen area with seating for more than a dozen people. The house is completely furnished and stocked with everything from beds to chairs to towels to silverware for as many people as you can fit. The pool and jacuzzi are exactly as gorgeous as they look in the photos. It's cozy and welcoming and comfortable, and the hosts bend over backwards to make sure everything is 100% to your satisfaction. My new home away from home in San Diego, for sure.

Joseph, the owner, was absolutely fantastic and incredibly responsive to any issue we had. He personally came to the property to help fix a wifi and tv issue, brought us a new propane tank when ours was low, and was always available by phone or text.
We booked this property for a week-long family vacation and had a wonderful time. The location of this property is great - walking distance (about a mils) to Ocean Beach restaurants and shops - and right across the street from Sunset Cliffs, a popular sunset viewing location. The house itself was comfortable for the price and we loved the pool, outdoor games, and hot tub. This would be a great place for families with young kids as the house is stocked with toys and baby gear. We took our 8-month old along and it was very easy. All-in-all, a great stay!

Cal Vacation Homes is super accommodating and goes out of their way to take care of us guests. Thank you to Joseph and Jan.
Location Location Location! Being able to walk out the front door and over to the famous Sunset Cliffs is the most amazing experience. People drive from all over just to see these natural formations and knowing that your house is right there is the best! You can watch the sunset from the huge patio that has chairs and a gas fire pit out the front or inside the living room on the super comfortable couches. Its really a wonderful evening routine! Communication with the Jan and Joseph was 5 star, and the house is much bigger than meets the eyes, this place would be amazing for large groups, with a sheltered court yard, ping pong table and BBQ. Once youve had enough of the incredible sunsets and the day turns in tonight, retreat into the awesome hot tub thats completely private and watch the expansive night sky and stars that San Diego has to offer! This was really something, and we did it every night. The house itself is huge five bedrooms three bathrooms, (with great amenities) fit for huge families and turn key with all the Mod cons you could possibly ask for! Very thoughtfully done with dishes and coffee makers and extra pots and pans that you can cater for yourself and the house with all your friends. It was also really clean, which we appreciated :) Wonderful beds and a very safe neighborhood. Would recommend this place to anyone!

I would definitely come back to this home for future trips as well as recommend it to my friends and family!
The beach house we stayed at was SO wonderful. I was amazed at how it fit such a large group of us and met all of our needs. The kitchen/living area was big and spacious and great for games, meetings, meals, etc. Having our own pool in the backyard was also ideal! One of my favorite features was the view from the front... we were literally right across from the ocean. There were great paths to walk along and cliffs to explore as well, just steps away from our door. The fire pit in front was also another fun amenity.


Season Information:  Christmas Holiday and New Year Holiday are two separate weeks. Check-in is available Friday or Saturday. Please inquire to book these dates for check-in if system won't allow online dates to be selected. Click "Contact Manager" on property page to inquire.
1.  I see you have a 4:00 pm check in time.  Is it possible for me to get early check in?
A.  Early check in is not always available.  If the house is booked the night before you arrive, that means that there is a group leaving that morning at the 10:00 check out time and our cleaning crew starts working.  Our cleaning crews are using the full 6 hours between 10:00 am and 4:00 pm to clean the house, particularly with Covid protocols.  Even if there is no group using the house the night before your arrival, that does not mean that early check in is available.  We manage several houses and have cleaning crews working at different properties at different times, there may be maintenance being performed, etc.  If early check in is available, the fees are as follows:
10:00 a.m. -- $450
11:00 a.m. -- $375
12:00 p.m. -- $300
1:00 p.m. -- $225
2:00 p.m. -- $150
3:00 p.m. -- $75
Please contact us after you make your reservation to inquire as to whether we are able to accommodate an early check in.
2.  I see that check out is at 10:00 a.m., can we check out later?
A.  Just like early check in, late check out is not always available.  If you are checking out on a day that another group is arriving, then our cleaners will need every hour between your check out time and their arrival time to clean the house.  Even if a group is not arriving that day, late check out may not be available for a number of other reasons.  If late check out is available, the fees are as follows:
11:00 a.m. -- $75
12:00 p.m. -- $150
1:00 p.m. -- $225
2:00 p.m. -- $300
3:00 p.m. -- $375
4:00 p.m. -- $450
Please contact us after you make your reservation to inquire as to whether we are able to accommodate an early check in.
3.  I see in your rental contract that the house has quiet hours, does that apply to my group?
We welcome people to share this home and to experience the fantastic location and views as well as the neighborhood and larger community.  You should know that we are very serious about quiet hours (which includes use of the pool and hot tub) and respecting the quiet and peaceful ambience of the residential neighborhood.  Please do not book this home if you are expecting to party late or loud.  Quiet hours as well as excessive noise or disruption rules are enforced at all times.  The neighbors will call us if a group is violating the rules.
