    Like to hear some suggestions here too::

    Will be visiting California for about a month and would like to stay around San Diego. We are searching for all available accommodation options possible. We know there are the hotels but would like to know if there is possibility of renting an apartment for that short period of a month in a safe environment. Can this be possible?

    Would appreciate if someone direct us to the right place(s). All suggestions welcomed. Thanks

    airbnb.com might be useful.

    Try homeaway.com for short term apartment rentals.

    also check www.vrbo.com. We've had good luck with the site (but not for longer than 10-days.)

    VRBO is definitely "worth the sweat" for this type of situation. It is perfect for family's that are trying to stay away from hotels, save $$ on making their own food, have a place with the kids can have a room of their own, etc.

    Check extended stay hotels.

    Check the possibility of paying to stay in local university dormitories or student apartments on campus. Many schools try to rent out dorm space in the summer in buildings that might not be used for students then or mixed in around the students. For dorm rooms, bathrooms are likely to be down the hall and they might not accept small children. For apartments or suite style arrangements, which I know UCSD has, several bedrooms would share a private hallway and bathroom, plus maybe a kitchen and living room. If your family reserves an entire suite or apartment, you have lots of convenience and privacy. However, be careful that linens, etc. are provided or at least can be rented easily from the housing office and check on arrival and departure hours.

    You might be able to sublet an apartment from a student, but this risks a place that is noisy, worn down, badly maintained, not clean, or generally ratty.
