About Patty Charman

Hi I am Patty. I am the owner of this building and live about 200 feet away. This makes it possible for me to give it my personal attention and meet my renters upon arrival and show them around. I love living in Mission Beach and bike ride, kayak, and now am enjoying standup paddle boarding. It looks hard but has about a 2 minute learning curve. I provide all of this for you because I want my renters to enjoy their vacations to the max. I feel that I provide great value for your vacation dollars.

Patty Charman purchased this apartment in 2000

Why Patty Charman chose San Diego County

Hi I was born here in San Diego and love Mission Beach where I live on Bayside Walk. There is no better place to live for fun and beauty. My son and I bought this building years ago because it was a reasonable fixer, and my son moved in as we started fixing. Now it is done and available for vacation renters to enjoy at a reasonable rate.

What makes this apartment unique

I feel that we offer more then almost any other rentals for the price. Full kichen, comfortable beds, land line with free long distance, {cell reception is not great at the beach} patio with gas grill, dining, wireless internet, hi-def flat screen TV with SAT. All the toys, beach chairs, towels, umbrellas, coolers, boogie boards, bikes, kayaks, stand up paddle board. Bring your clothes and toothbrush and enjoy.

Our stay was great!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just stayed at this place for a week and it was awesome! We had a great time and the location was excellent. You are steps away from the beach and the bay. She had tons of amenities which made the stay so great. She had plenty of bikes,kayaks, stand up paddleboard's, lawn chairs, beachtowels, games for the beach, everything. That is what makes this place such a fantastic stay. She was great to work with and very accommodating. She even left us a gift card for a restaurant down the street that was very very good. We will definitely be back. Thanks Patty

Great beach house!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this unit from Patty for over 6 months in the fall of 2015 into the winter of 2016. I loved living here. It is super close to the beach and the bay and with off street parking. The unit is functional and cozy. I was here during some of the hottest days in the fall and the unit stayed really cool with the fans Patty provided. The patio is a great spot to eat. The building has lots of great extras like paddle boards, bikes, beach chairs, etc. The unit has been updated a bit since the photos on the site (new paint, etc). The laundry is free in the garage next to the unit, very convenient. Even though the unit is on the ground level, it is behind a big privacy fence so it feels very safe and quiet. I rarely had any issues while I was here, but when I needed something fixed or had a question Patty was very responsive and helpful. She was incredibly accommodating and flexible with the move in and move out as well.

I would recommend this unit - or this building to anyone!

Second stay! Adorable, private, great location and value!

  • 5 of 5

Hello All,

The first week of August 2015 was our second time staying at this listing, and I believe we had even more fun this time than the last. (I didn't know that was possible!)

The owner, Patty has an amazing sense of what hospitality truly is. She has so many amenities available upon arrival there: bikes, boogie boards, surfboards, kayak, stand-up boards, beach toys, towels, umbrella, beach chairs, full kitchen, a grill, adorable patio (which we used to enjoy cute and romantic dinners,) parking, washer/drier, and more. This is great, because you don't have to pack all those things for the trip. All you need to bring are yourselves and your clothes and enjoy! This also saves you the bike, surfboard or other rental costs. It really enhanced our vacation experience and made it more relaxing, convenient and enjoyable!

On top of providing all of those amenities, Patty gave us a gift certificate for a great restaurant down the street, where she is a partial owner. We ate breakfast there twice & the food was delicious! (We would suggest the steak and eggs breakfast.)

Only my boyfriend and I stayed there for the whole week, but I also had several friends visit us over our stay. They absolutely loved the rental, it's location, and the accommodations too. They look to stay there for any of their future San Diego trips, as we do. Why wouldn't we after experiencing two amazing vacations here already?

We love this location! You will too.

Avoid this place at all costs. It is cheap for a reason.

  • 1 of 5

Went here for a week with my family and it turned out to be terrible. First off, the entire place was filthy. My wife and I were cleaning the inside up before we even brought any luggage inside. Secondly, the room is beyond dated and the showers don't always stay warm when you use them.. Lastly, a leak in the room where the bed is caused all the problems.. There was a leak right above the bed which went onto the bed while my wife and I were sleeping and even to the side of it as well. We contacted Patty(the owner) to see if she could fix it... Patty came over in the morning and said that somebody left a hose on upstairs which caused the leak, and it should be fine from here on out.. What kind of lie is that? The roof in the bedroom was sagging down is brown because it is majorly damaged.. We ended up requesting a refund for the remaining days and left that place. Patty was extremely rude during the process and very unprofessional. We ended up staying and the Catamaran hotel a few blocks down from this place. The Catamaran was exceptional. Amazing views from our eighth floor room, great pool, a restaurant on the bay side of the hotel, and helpful employees as well. Don't spend your money on a cheap place like this. Spend the extra money and actually enjoy yourself at a place like the Catamaran or something of that nature.

Owner's Response: I was astounded to be called a liar, be told the rental was filhy, and how rude I was. I had 2 cleaners cleaning for over 2 hours before they arrived. I met them as I do all of my guests and told them if there were any problems to let me know right away. They never mentioned that it was not clean enough. the bathroom is scoured, as is the kitchen. The sheets and towels etc are all clean and from the washer dryer at the building. They did not inform me there was a water leak until the 5th day they are there. They saw evidence of a leaking problem several days earlier and when I asked them why they did not call sooner they said they thought it was from the rain on Sat. I told them they should have called right away. It was not for them to determine the cause of the problem. I probably did sound rude. I went upstairs to the deck above them and saw that the hose was not turned off at the hose bibb and the patio floor was covered in water above their bedroom. I turned off the water cleaned and dried the deck. Reported to them the problem and offered to move the bed what ever I could do to help. They called several hours later and I offered then $450. rent return and they could leave then or the next morning, before they ever asked for a return. It cost me over a $1000. for repairs and refund. They never accepted that they should have called when the problem first appeared. The pictures on the listing are exactly what the unit looks like. I feel badly that they were so unhappy. I tried to be fair and respond as soon as I was told of any problems. Patty

A Great Get Away and the Perfect Location!!!

  • 4 of 5

We loved this unit and the owners couldn't have been nicer. The location was amazing! The ground floor unit was convenient and the bikes, paddle board, kayak, boogie boards, .... were just the thing to make our vacation perfect. Beach towels were provided and the kitchen was fully stocked. The unit was clean and well kept. The futon beds were comfortable and the layout of the unit was nice with the main bedroom off to the side and private feeling. We will definitely be back! Thanks Patty!!!

Family vacation

  • 2 of 5

The location is good, has parking spot and lots of beach accessories. Nice laundry available but the property is in need of serious general maintenance. There is chipping paint throughout the unit, light fixtures and shower curtain rod are rusty, screen door is broken, main door only latches by the dead bolt lock. The unit needs a good deep cleaning, light switches are dirty, base boards are filthy and socks or feet will be black from waling in the unit with no shoes on. Only two windows in the unit so not much of a cross ventilation, very stuffy.
