OVERVIEW: Groundswell B is a standard 2 bed 2 bath boardwalk vacation rental. Being on the second level, you get less noise, and you don't have an endless stream of pedestrians on the boardwalk looking into your window, which is a constant issue on the ground floor. If you want to get close to the beach without the beach always getting close to you, this is a great choice.
LAYOUT: This is a SECOND FLOOR 2 bedroom 2 bath OCEANFRONT apartment in a 6 apartment building, right on the boardwalk, with the grassy Balboa Park, the sand, and the water straight ahead. The location is just a block from the edge of Balboa Village, full of shops, restaurants, bars and activities. The apartment itself is roomy, properly equipped and well maintained. The kitchen is nicely upgraded, and the balcony has propane BBQ. Another nice feature of this unit is that this building has multiple apartments, so if you have large groups with different schedules, you can rent a few units and bring everyone together for a big vacation.
BEDS: The master bedroom has 1 QUEEN SIZED BED, and the second bedroom has 1 QUEEN SIZED BED. Each bedroom has a separate full bath. There is also a 1 QUEEN SIZED FUTON in the living room. It technically SLEEPS SIX, but you should consider the layout and bed sizes to see if that works for your group.
AMENITIES: In addition to WiFi, cable, a fully equipped kitchen, linens, beach towels, beach chairs and umbrellas, automated keypad door locks, guest welcome tablet and a coin-op washer and dryer in the garage, it also has a basic starter supply of soaps, detergent, paper towels, toilet paper, enough to get you going for your stay.
CLEANING: Our cleaners will have this unit cleaned, stocked, beds made, and ready to move in.
PARKING: Each unit in this building gets ONE parking space in the carport. The carport is a little tight to maneuver in and out of, but nearly any vehicle will fit. There is some street parking nearby, and a large amount of metered short and long term parking within a few blocks.
SUMMARY: If you are looking for luxury furnishings, no. If you're looking to throw wild parties late at night, definitely no. The grassy Balboa Park is also a factor. Some people love it. Some people don't. All that said, if you and your crew want to come to the beach and have a good time, with everything a beach vacationer could want within a three block radius, it's hard to go wrong with Groundswell B.
