About the property

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, a collection of spices, enough paper goods to get you started, and has a dishwasher. The stovetop has an indoor grill and there is a gas BBQ on the porch right off the kitchen.

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

If you prefer to dine out, there are good restaurants close by in either the Morena District, the Gas Lamp District or Little Italy downtown.

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!

Great house with the perfect location for all of San Diego's attractions!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this house for our San Diego trip! 10-15 minutes to Sea World, the San Diego Zoo and the beach. Great 3 bedroom fully stocked house, in a quiet neighborhood. Our kids loved using the bodyboards at La Jolla Shores! We would definitely stay there again.

Great for the family

  • 4 of 5

There was a slight miscommunication/misunderstanding and the property was not ready when we checked in. While incredibly frustrating, as we had plans with friends that evening and needed to change the kids, we contacted the owners immediately and they helped us get it ironed out and took good care of us. Special thanks to their local sister for chipping in, in order to ensure our family had a nice stay.

The rooms were spacious and each one had a fan. Once you open those windows and that bay breeze comes through, it's awesome. There is no back patio or yard, but a comfy (although small) front deck and enclosed front yard.

The kids loved the sand toys and boogie boards - thank you! BBQ needs replacing, but it got through some steaks. Kitchen was fully stocked. My only wish is that there was a window or better natural light in the family room, which would make for better airflow. While it's a nice big comfy space, it tended to get warm.

We had a wonderful time and would consider staying again, despite our hiccup at arrival. Thanks again!

Great Location !!

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival at the airport we had no trouble finding our way to this quiet neighborhood and charming home. The house was very clean and had all the amenities that we needed for a great stay. We never met the owners so I am assuming that they just let us get on with it and if we needed anything they would respond. It is a leap of faith to just let unknown folks walk into your home, I love the concept and appreciate the trust the owners had in us.

The fact that they had beach chairs and equipment for our use was a huge plus. We loved the fact that there were fans to set up for air circulation and a whole house fan that could be turned on at night to pull the heat from the house since the house does get quite hot during the day. Setting a fan in front of the screen door in the entry way worked like a charm.

The wi fi timed out constantly but since we were aware that there was a definate problem from previous reviews we really saw no need to contact the owner. Another minor inconvenience was the location of the electrical outlet in the guest bathroom as it was part of the light and too high for me to reach without enlisting a family member to plug it in for me.

We loved the home, we loved the location. We highly recommend this establishment to all and sundry and we shall return !!!

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!
