About the property

Enjoy sunrise to sunset right on the beach in this newly remodeled 2bd/2ba beach-level unit in an amazing home -- featured in San Diego Magazine! -- ready for your unbelievable beach holiday!

Just bring a swimsuit and a smile, we provide the rest: bikes, boogie boards, sand toys, patios with bbqs, fireplace. This luxury home (dubbed the SandCastle) offers everything you would ever need for your vacation. Kayaks and paddle boards available on a first-come-firsts-served basis.

Step outside your door onto multiple patios opening to the beach with tables, chairs and bbq to enjoy as the kids play in the sand right in front of you. Or grab a bike and start riding the 16-mile boardwalk that can take you all around the bay, past Seaworld, Belmont Park (the roller coaster!) and along the coast and famous Mission Beach boardwalk.

Inside, you'll find two bedrooms, one with a new king bed and the other with two twin beds, all with new linens. Each room also has its own climate control A/C unit for your sleeping comfort all year round! There are two bathrooms, one with a brand-new tile stall shower and double sinks, the other with a tub shower and single sink.

The new open kitchen boasts all stainless steel with fridge with ice maker, microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker, trash compactor, a full assortment of kitchen amenities to accommodate all your dining needs – with views of the patios and beach from every angle. Or walk a block in any direction for a great selection of restaurants any time of day.

There is a flat screen TV in the living room...next to the gas fireplace for cozy nights after the sun goes down. New sliding glass doors open to all three patios, a secure two-car garage (!!!) with full size washer and dryer for your private use.

San Diego provides literally just about any activity or event you would want to do in this incredible diverse city. It host several marathons, smaller tri-athalons and other races all year round including the home town America's Cup racing adventures. This year brought back the Red Bull Air Races too! You like to golf? Mission Bay Executive Course is less than 2 miles away, or take on world class golf at Torrey Pines and other fairways within an easy drive.

Local surfing is steps away -- for the adventurist who would like to learn how to surf or simply take on an easy fun time in boogie boarding the waves on the ocean side. Seasoned surfers are minutes away from Tourmaline Surf Park, Law Street, OB to the south, or Swamis to the north.

San Diego is one the top places to watch the beautiful site of migrating whales or bring along a pole as this is one of the best open sea fishing along these coastal waters.

Need more activities?? Rent a pleasure boat, canoe or sailboat a few blocks away at the Mission Bay Aquatic Center, San Diego’s largest water sports playground. Grab a bike in the garage and pedal to Mariner's Point, Perez Cove, Stoney Point, Government Island or Fiesta Island to witness endangered birds like the California least tern and Belding's savannah sparrow plus your local great blue heron, osprey, mallards, avocets and black-necked stilts. Enjoy a picnic in your own backyard or walk to Fanuel Park or Crown Point for shooting hoops and playground swings.

Easy access to Highways 5 and 8 make it a breeze to get anywhere and everywhere else you'd like to go. Like the famous San Diego Zoo, Sea World, Wild Animal Park, Petco Park (Padres fans!) Balboa Park (museums, theaters and restaurants), the Gas-lamp Quarter, Del Mar Race Track, Torrey Pines Golf Courses, the Scripps Institute of Oceanography, La Jolla, Del Mar (horse raccing), Cardiff by the Sea, Torrey Pines National Park, Hotel Del Coronado, Little Italy, Birch Aquarium and Legoland are all within 30 minutes.

This is one of three vacation rental units in this unique home. If you have a larger group, you may want the entire home (6bd/5ba!) or just add the top floor with amazing views (1bd/1ba) or the large 3bd/2ba middle unit. Perfect for extended or multiple families, reunions, or colleagues at a conference. Please contact us for more information on how to combine additional beautiful custom units in this Award-Winning Robert Quigley designed home.

Castle on top of the world...

  • 5 of 5

We spent four nights in paradise. Tina was an incredible hostess and "Olive" the cat made us feel like we were at home. The suite in the sky was meticulously maintained with a pelican theme and was extremely comfortable. We rode bikes on the boardwalk, kayaked the bay and took morning strolls on the beach. Highly recommend for a quiet get away.

Favorite Place to Stay on Mission Bay!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location for so many beach activities! I enjoyed both worlds with provided Boogie Boards on the Beach and Paddle Boards and Kayaks on the Bay. Bikes are also provided, so I didn't need to drive my vehicle as everything was close. The new updates to the room were beautiful! Tina was very accommodating, making sure I had everything I needed for a comfortable Staycation.

sup n' cruise

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a quick weekend and the Sandcastle was perfect! The private deck and amazing view made you feel like you owned the place. The location was clutch, very close to a ton of little cafes and shops. We enjoyed the activities at the Sandcastle nestled on Sail Bay, complete with beach cruisers and stand up paddle boards. We can't wait to visit again next year! Thank you for the wonderful hospitality!!

Great Location, but not Perfect

  • 3 of 5

This rental is in a great location! It is walking distance to everything. The huge deck is perfectly situated to watch the bay and folks on the path below. The location on the roof is very subject to ocean breezes... good and bad I suppose...depending on the season. The room itself is a little worn, stained rug, peeling wallpaper. The bed is super comfortable though, and the mini fridge and microwave are handy. We sure appreciated being able to use the toys... bikes and kayak. The host/owner is very nice and available, but if you are looking for privacy it can be a bit unnerving walking past them every time you want to enter or exit.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in the rooftop room for a weekend. It was everything we hoped for and more. The room is clean and the bed is super comfy. The view from the private deck is beautiful!! We took full advantage of the paddle board, kayak and bikes. Location is perfect (steps away from bayside beach and a few min walk to ocean beach) and the owners made sure we had everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable. Don was very helpful and friendly, he went out of his way to make our stay great. Didn't get a chance to talk with Lori during our stay but she was very helpful when booking and made the process seamless. I would definitely recommend this rental!!! There are a lot of stairs and the tub is a little hard to get in and out so maybe not for someone who has trouble with stairs (try the lower level). Would LOVE to visit this home again!!

First and foremost, Thank you for making me feel so at home. What a special place to stay love the privacy of the top deck and hot tub. We stayed for the weekend of my nephews wedding @ sunset cliffs 20 min away. My Brother and his wife came on saturday and we took advantage of all the toys.. bikes .. paddle board ... and kayak. Thank you again for your wonderful hospitality. I plan on coming back soon if available because it is a hidden gem.
