For years, the only way most people could afford a beachside summer home was by faking a Viking invasion until its current occupant fled in terror. Leave the longboats in the garage with today’s Groupon: for $75, you get $250 toward lodging from Southern California Vacation Rentals.
Southern California Vacation Rentals bestows groups of beach-seeking vacationers with fully furnished luxury lodgings and ample amenities amid San Diego County’s coastal communities. A waterfront cottage in Mission Beach (weekly from $1,300, plus taxes and fees) nestles parties of six in a queen bed and sofas, with a gas-insert fireplace and enclosed patio, and a historic home in La Jolla (weekly from $3,000, plus taxes and fees) accommodates streetwise dance crews of 13 with a barbecue-friendly wood deck, a deep-jetted indoor jacuzzi, and broadside cannons for resolving disputes with rowdy neighbors. Every property is within easy reach of San Diego's beaches and includes concierge services such as surfing instruction, discounted attraction tickets, or a private chef that tailors meals to any taste or digestive system.
