At night you can relax, listening to the water lap against the hulls of the moored boats and watch the Sea World fireworks from the patio to end each evening.

The open floor plan of this 2nd and 3rd story condo provides the comfort found at the nearby resorts but at a value and sense of privacy that is unmatched.

Your time spent here will be a memorable one.

Great for active families

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for our family of 5. Two college kids and one 32 year old. We brought skateboards they rode everywhere and rented 5 bikes that we stored in the garage and rode all over too. We also brought our kayak and it was so convenient having the harbor right there as we went everyday. We also walked over to rent stand up paddle-boards. The bunk beds are a little odd height on the bottom but the boys slept on the top ones and my daughter on the Murphy bed. Overall great place for a very active trip.

Perfect location! Love this condo!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great experience and lifelong memories at this condo. The location is walking distance to everything, the beach, Pier, great restaurants, coffee, shopping, bars, bike paths, rental shops. We felt totally at home inside, clean and well maintained, felt safe with the gated entry door, kids loved the bunk beds, well stocked kitchen and awesome patio overlooking the bay. We didn't want to leave- Dave is great to work with and we will definitely be back!!

Our family had a great time. The condo has an ideal location on the Bay. Walking distance to everything you need. The condo was clean and had plenty of room. The 2 parking spaces for the unit were definitely a plus. Great communication with Dave the owner. Overall a great experience!!

Great location for Mission Beach

  • 4 of 5

Had a great 3 night stay over Christmas 2016. Working with the owner was easy and the location was very good. Lot to do even with the holiday schedules in San Diego that weekend.

Amazing views...great location...wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

So many great things to say about this condo! The location is perfect. Seemed that we were close to anywhere we wanted to go during our vacation. There are loads of activities to keep the whole family entertained right outside the condo…kayaking, paddle boarding, swimming, and other water sports on the bay side, and a short walk to the ocean side for fun in the waves. In addition to the activities, the condo is close to lots of great food. Mission serves a great breakfast along with a coffee bar (a couple short blocks away) and be sure to make the walk up to Pacific Beach to try an ice cream sandwich at Baked Bear! We honestly didn’t have a bad meal the whole week we were there. Thanks to Dave for the great recommendations, as many of these things might have been overlooked if we hadn’t been told about them beforehand.

Back to the condo…it’s got everything you need. I appreciated that everything was clean and well stocked. On top of that, Dave was quick to respond to any questions we had. After a fun and active day, it was very relaxing to sit on the balcony looking onto the Bay and watching fireworks (great view of the Sea World show…about 5 minutes long). It was a great way to wrap up each day.

I highly recommend this condo for your next trip to San Diego. Enjoy!

Still a smart choice for renters in Mission Beach

  • 5 of 5

We come here every year. This was our 7th time coming to the condo. It is still such a comfortable space, feels like home when we get there. We enjoy the relaxed atmosphere so much we stayed 2 weeks this year.

Since we live relatively close (90 miles) we are able to bring the toys (kayak, sailboard, SUP, bicycles, etc.) and stash them all in the garage. However, the owner does have many toys for your use in the garage. My daily 6am paddle on the flat water is always wonderful, having the bay almost to myself, and seeing all the fish and rays under the water.

Everything we might need seems to be there in the condo. Dave has really given thought to what it takes for a traveler to just show up and make the condo their home for a week. It is not new, but it is nicely put together and extremely functional for families. We like to cook, so having a real kitchen with a dishwasher really makes things easy. Ralph's Market is up the street and will have anything you need.

Riding our bikes along the shore for miles in either direction is always a pleasure. This past week, we enjoyed riding the 12-miles around the bay-beautiful. We also enjoyed driving down to Seaport Village and renting a power boat to tour all of San Diego Bay. Great fun!

You can search forever on the internet trying to find a better deal and/or location, but this is it! Two parking spaces, right on the sand of Mission Bay, a block from the Pacific Ocean, fireworks every night!

We have met many international travelers over the years, and they are all amazed at what a great spot this is. Thank you, Dave, for making your special condo available to others for an amazing vacation opportunity!!!
