About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps max 5)


The PERFECT Family-friendly Mission Beach Cottage awaits. We are a true Mission Beach cottage that has been completely renovated in 2010 . We have 2 bedrooms / 2 full baths and all of the outdoor living you could want in over 500 square feet of deck space!

Unlike most of the cottages in central Mission Beach, we are charming, tasteful AND modern! When you enter, you will find a gourmet kitchen, tasteful furnishings, thoughtful amenities and a host of modern 'must haves' including:

- LCD TV flat panels in every room

- 4KDigital cable TV, Stereo Surround Sound

- DVDs, VCRs, MP3 inputs

- Free WiFi and Long Distance

- Easy to find outlets and power strips

Rent from folks who have called Mission Beach home for over 20 years. We know all of the insider tricks and tips (where to eat, how to make the most of your vacation without spending the most). We make everything super easy: located ocean-side, we are about 20 steps to the sand and water, and have dedicated, off street parking for 2, perhaps even 3 cars (if small). We are a 5 minute walk to Belmont Park, a 10 minute walk to World Famous, 20 minutes to Crystal Pier and have a GREAT little market just across the street.

Could life get any better?

Yup, it can! Rent with us and you will also receive full linens (bath towels and bed sheets). :-)

Our calendar is up to date - please check before emailing for availability.

It's all here!

  • 5 of 5

Surf, sand, sunsets, early mornings walks on the beach, great waves,, beach rescues, roller coaster, bikes, quite bay, restaurants, cold beer, fresh baked pastries, Greek food, souvenir shops, people watching and TACOS! Is all within walking distance from this quintessential Beach Cottage. It's just far enough away from the boardwalk getaway from the high level of activity of the beach. I can not think a single thing that's not provided in this well stocked beach home. Be sure to check kitchen cabinets for items previous tenants may have left for you not to replicate, olive oils, spices, etc. We were a family of 3 adults and 2 ten year olds and had just the right amount of room. We will be back!

Owner's Response: Thank you Mark for your kind words. I am so very glad you and your family had suxh an enjoyable stay. We try to maintain a simple standard, what would we expect and desire if we were guests. We keep that standard in mind when it comes to the care and maintenance of the Cottage. To accomplish this, we encourage guests to communicate what we are doing well, and where we can use improvement. We cannot fix what we do not know about while continuing to do the things that we are doing well. That is the way for us to get better, and achieve the goal for our guest to have a great experience. Thank you so much for already booking your dates for next year! Michael

Nice location to beach

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time, being so close to the beach was great and having beach toys available to use was a plus. The owner was easy to work with and helpful. The only issues we had were, tiny ants throughout the house, in bedrooms, living room etc. One of my kids woke up with bites all over his chest and arms. And the house could use a deep clean, built up dust and stained bath towels.

Owner's Response: Our sincerest apologies for the issues incurred during your stay, I wish that you would have made me aware of them during the time that you were here, or at least have submitted your review earlier than a month post stay. Since receiving your view, I have engaged an exterminator to service the Cottage once a month. This in addition to other preventive maintenance. Each month whether needed or not we have our drains snaked. Also, we have a LICENSED General Contractor ( we do use handy men) inspect the Cottage from top to bottom for any and all maintenance and safety issues. and for those issues to be resolved within the week discovered, As to the stained towels, Totally unacceptable, we maintain an inventory on site of new linens and towels. Our cleaning people are to clean and inspect them. If anything is torn or stained it is to be discarded. I will be meeting with the owner of the cleaning company to address your other concerns. In light of the circumstances, I find your rating to be much more generous than I would have given. Thank you! I hope that you give us another opportunity. Thank you again for your feedback. Your comments will "pay it forward " for our future guests!!! Regards, Michael

Good Location Close to Beach

  • 4 of 5


Centrally located on Mission Beach. Owner gave us $25 to a nice little bakery with great cinnamon rolls! Boogie boards, umbrella, beach chairs, and other fun beach items provided! Pretty nice patios to hang out on with gas fire pit. Cute little house with tv's in living area and smaller ones in both bedrooms. Overall good experience!

Cons- House was a little dirty. Cleaning company spot cleaned but home needs good deep cleaning. Base boards, rugs, walls, doors, ceiling fans, etc. Smelled dog urine on rug under coffee table immediately when we arrived. Never contacted owner. I'm sure he would have addressed issues as he was great to work with. We just took care of issue and scrubbed rug ourselves. Also didn't know his brother lives in the garage on the property until we read the note upon arrival. Never saw him and it worked out okay but felt a little awkward for me and my family.

Even with these issues wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. I'm just honest in my reviews to help others.

Owner's Response: Nicolette, My sincerest apologies, for the issues encountered.I wish that you would have contacted me immediately as I would have addressed your concerns in haste. It would have been helpful for me to see it first hand, and then contact the cleaning people.I know that if that happened with my family, I would have wanted it taken care of immediately. We have safeguards in place to prevent such things. We thought they were adequate as none of our prior reviews relate any of the issues that you expressed. We have contracted the same cleaning company for over 3 years, My brother does live on site in a garage converted to a studio from time to time. He does not disturb the guests. Most beach properties are multi unit. Unlike the vast majority of those properties, there are no common areas, and there is a separate entrance to the studio that is not within the fenced boundaries of the main house. With all that said,I am glad that you would not hesitate to come back, and that you gave us a 4/5 star rating. I am grateful for your honest review. We always welcome input and guest comments,to ensure a quality stay for our guests. Also, I want to thank you for pointing out a flaw in our system.You can be sure that we will be addressing your concerns with our cleaning crew.Also, in the future, we will not only take pictures of the Cottage when it has been damaged or left in disarray. We will now take pictures following the cleaning.. Thanks again, Michael

Cute cottage near the beach

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time staying in Michael's house by the ocean! The pictures online gave us an idea of what to expect as did the other reviews. Michael was helpful with his quick responses to texts. His binder had tons of information inside. Many of the notes around the house need updating from handwriting to type as they are fading. There are many beach items to use and dishes aplenty! There were 4 of us here and it felt like a tight squeeze at times.

Would recommend!
