Sleep on the pier in San Diego's hip Pacific Beach district.
Only in San Diego can you
sleep in a 1930s cottage — on the pier! These adorable little rentals
book up to 11 months in advance, making them one of the hardest-won
hotel stays in California.
The historic pier, located in Pacific Beach between Mission Beach and La Jolla,
was built in 1927. The Cape Cod-style cottages date back to 1936, and
have been lovingly maintained with all the comforts of home. Take your
pick from a studio, 1-bedroom or 2-bedroom unit, each equipped with a
television, kitchen, linens and private deck. And yes — every cottage
has a full ocean view.
During the day you can surf, sunbathe and
shop. Everything is in walking distance — from bike and surfboard
rentals to funky beach bars and restaurants. For the best eats, try
Kono's (858-483-1669), World Famous (858-272-3100) and JRDN at Tower 23 (858-270-2323).
