Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in San Diego County - BAY PARK MISSION BAY BEAUTY

3 bd 2 bath house; water & city light view/sunsets from front yard & dining area

This is a charming and comfortable home located above beautiful Mission Bay. It is close to many attractions such as Sea World (less than 2 miles) and the famous San Diego Zoo (a 10 minute drive). Or, visit Belmont Park at Mission Beach and take a ride on the roller coaster! The rental home is close to the beaches, which range in scenery from the large flat sands of Pacific Beach, Mission Beach, and Ocean Beach to the beautiful rocks and stunning cliffs of La Jolla and Torrey Pines. A foam surfboard is available for you to use, as well as boogie boards, beach chairs, sand toys, and beach towels.

Enjoy a view of Mission Bay and the ocean from the front yard, and the city lights at night. The front yard is completely fenced and has grass.

The home includes 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms; the master bedroom has a CA King bed and on-suite bathroom with shower; a 2nd bedroom has 2 extra-long twin beds, and the 3rd bedroom includes a futon couch that folds down to a full-sized bed, with office desk, printer, and FREE internet and wifi. There is also a 2nd bathroom with tub and shower.

The kitchen is fully equipped with dishes, cooking utensils, pots and pans, spices, paper goods, and has a dishwasher. The stovetop has an indoor grill and there is a gas BBQ on the porch right off the kitchen.

A full sized washer and dryer are in the pantry in the kitchen.

If you prefer to dine out, the Gas Lamp District or Little Italy downtown have an abundance of restaurants to choose from and are a very short drive.

If you would like to experience more of San Diego than the beaches and downtown, head east and explore the Laguna Mountains. Hike on one of the many well-marked trails. Or, drive into historic Julian, famous for their locally grown apples and HOMEMADE apple pie!

We hope you chose to rent our home in Mission Bay/Bay Park for your vacation to San Diego!

Keywords: Charming and comfortable close to endless activities, beaches, sightseeing, shopping and everything you need to make your vacation here fun and memorable.

About Janet or Randy LaDue

Hi - We are Randy and Janet LaDue. Randy, moved to San Diego from Ventura to attend college at San Diego State in 1976. He has lived in San Diego ever since. I met Randy in 1978 through a mutual friend and he convinced me to move to San Diego in 1981 - I have been here ever since! San Diego offers us everything we want in a city from the beaches for swimming, surfing and tanning, to mountains for hiking and skiing. Downtown is beautiful and right on the water front. The weather is amazing and consistently mild. It is an awesome city!! We love to travel and have seen a lot of amazing places, but are always glad to call San Diego our home.

Janet or Randy LaDue purchased this house in 1989

Why Janet or Randy LaDue chose San Diego County

We chose to buy this home in Bay Park because it had the view we were looking for and it is close to the beaches, downtown, airport, Sea World, the Zoo, Balboa Park, hiking in the mountains, and much more. Also, It is located near all of San Diego's major freeways for getting around easily and conveniently.

What makes this house unique

You will enjoy a view of the bay, ocean and beach-city lights from the front of the house. Step out the front door and go directly across the street to enjoy fireworks from Sea World on summer nights. The home has a lovely wooden beam ceiling, a floor to ceiling stone fireplace and a beautiful arched, stained glass window.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Janet,

Our family stayed at your place back in July of 2013, and want to return to your property!

We were looking to come out to San Diego in March. It looks like we would fly out around March 21 (into LA) and then be leaving March 29th.

Thanks so much!

If your idea of vacation is a little home away from home, this is the place. Convenient location, nice, clean, safe, quiet neighborhood, and a perfectly cozy, yet spacious "Southern California Charm" home. We spent our days out exploring, and it was great to come home to a nice relaxing comfortable place each night.

Master bedroom bed is like sleeping on a cloud! Bathrooms are smallish and nothing luxurious, but very clean, as was the entire place. Very clean to every detail. Kitchen is older, but spacious, very clean, everything works and had everything needed. Great to have laundry option on site. Living-room was cool and comfortable, with a beautiful stained glass window. Other reviews said it seemed "dark" well hey, turn on a light, that window is beautiful and made me think of wine country. We were here during a warm week (temps in the 80's ) so the nice cool room was a great spot to relax.

Janet and Randy are wonderful. Did everything they could to make sure we were comfortable. They do live on premise, but in a separate home. We thought that was great as they were available if we needed, but completely unobtrusive. If you're looking for a rowdy place to party this is not the place. But a great quiet relaxing home away from home. This is the spot!

THIS IS A TRUE VRBO. Not someone who has displaced tenants, or are trying to turn a house or apartment into a hotel. It is a great spot, and great owners.

Thanks for the hospitality!

Happy with stay

  • 5 of 5

The house was very well equipped from kitchen utinsels to couch blankets. We stayed for four nights with adult daughter and 2 year old grandson. The location fit the bill for us. Close to Mission Bay, the zoo and Balboa Park not far. Downtown and Old Town were not too far as well. Owners were very nice and accommodating. Home is on a quiet street and easy to get to Mission Beach and Pacific Beach for restaurants and shopping. We would consider staying there again.

Economical and clean

  • 4 of 5

Considering the cost of living in San Diego, this property near Mission Bay is a good value. We enjoyed short drives to Coronado Island, downtown SD, and the Zoo, among other locations. The house is well appointed and was very clean when we arrived. There are sidewalks in the neighborhood, which is convenient for walking or running.

However, though the property advertises a printer, it didn't work. For winter visitors, be prepared for a cool house - the heat won't go above 69 degrees and it can feel chilly inside on cool, damp days. The living room is dark (without natural light) and other than a comfortable faux leather sofa it lacks comfortable seating. Finally, the internet connection was spotty at best. Resetting the router was a several-times-a-day necessity when we were at the house, probably due to the density of the neighborhood.

Owner's Response: Christy and her husband were very nice people. Their reservation included 2 cute and very curious boys. We do try to keep our rates affordable since we cater to families, and presenting it clean to our guests is very important! Thanks for noticing and including this in the review. Thank you, also, for noting that it is a great neighborhood for walking and running. Lighting and style in a home are such a personal choice. We made the conscious decision as owners of this property to have more filtered light through the beautiful stained glass window in the living room, as the window faces west where the sun sets; we took into consideration the comfort of our guests by not allowing too much light and heat to come through. We have made sure to install more than sufficient lighting options in that room, including track lighting, table lamp, and floor lamp. The lighting in the house has all been updated to include LED bulbs. The home accommodates up to six people, and it is our experience that the leather couch, which is an L-shaped sectional and measures approximately 9' x 7', seats more than 6 people. There are four additional chairs made for sitting as options. To our future guests: Please, if the internet connection and/or the printer are not working, let us know. We will do our best to take care of it right away. If there was a problem with the Wi-Fi, it is likely a provider issue or an issue of too many devices in the home trying to squeeze service from one router. In trying to help preserve energy in this day and age, we do have the thermostat set at 70 degrees Fahrenheit. As a standard, San Diego Gas and Electric states “A setting of 68 degrees Fahrenheit during the day and 55 degrees Fahrenheit or lower at night is recommended”. In addition, we provide an extra blanket at the foot of the beds, and a number of blanket-throws in a basket next to the fireplace.

Great location, very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

Randy and Janet have a great rental in the Bay Park area above Mission Bay. The view is limited to the front yard and the master bedroom corner window but the sunsets were still spectacular! The location was central to all of our activities and the house was well equipped. It even had a surfboard.

We couldn't get the heat to come on so we called Randy and he fixed it right away ( just a dead battery...)

We would rent it again gladly.

Thanks, Randy and Janet!
