About the property

2 bedroom, 2 bath condo with ocean views, a bath and dual shower in master

This is where you want to be in San Diego! The location is perfect, and the building is one that everyone stops to look at. The hot tub or patio is a great place to take in the fresh air and California sun, watch for dolphins and enjoy the Pacific Ocean breeze! Our two bedroom, two bath condo is styled with granite floors, and countertops, large flat screen TV, fireplace, travertine tiled bathrooms, and modern appliances. Our condo is one of the largest at the Surf Rider and the master bath features a jacuzzi tub with separate shower featuring dual shower heads. It is perfect for a romantic getaway or a family vacation with a queen bed in the master bedroom and a full sized bed in the second bedroom. A queen size pullout sofa in the living room provides extra flexibility. There is also plenty of seating with a round dining table and kitchen bar. Modern appliances and granite countertops will make cooking fun, although there are plenty of restaurants to try while you are in town. You will enjoy watching the constant activity on the boardwalk, walking to great shops and restaurants, or riding the roller coaster at Bellmont Park just a few blocks away. Of course one of San Diego's finest beaches is just steps away, and it is easy to take the kids to Sea World for the day as it is only 2 miles away!

You can rent bikes, surfboards, (or take lessons for those of you who have always wanted to try!), rollerblades, jet skis and other recreational equipment all just around the corner! Or you may join a game of sand volleyball or just work on your tan! And that's just during the day, for those of you who like a little nightlife, Pacific Beach (just a couple of miles up the road) is a favorite destination for many of San Diego's college students and young people. Or you can head downtown for a night in San Diego's famous Gas Lamp District, or to Petco Park for a Padres game! The possibilities are endless!

This condo is located in the historic Surf Rider building on Mission Beach. Fully renovated in 2005, it has all of the most modern amenities and fixtures. Our unit is located on the second floor with views of the ocean, beach and boardwalk from the master bedroom and living room. Also, there are two private chairs in the nook just outside the window for your private use.

When you need a break from the beach and activities you can enjoy the flat panel HDTV in the living room or the flat panel tv's in either bedroom.

The kitchen is fully furnished with brand new state of the art appliances and granite countertops. The bathrooms feature travertine tiles and counter tops.

The central patio is a great place to gather and enjoy a cocktail or cold glass of lemonade. It features two gas grills a hot tub, (which is the envy of everyone walking along the boardwalk) top of the line lounge chairs, and showers to wash off the sand from the beach!

No parties are allowed on the property. Parties may result in immediate removal from property without refund.

A great place to stay - 4.5 stars

  • 4 of 5

Can't beat the location and the condo is lovely, clean and very well-outfitted. We stayed with our two young kids and loved the combination of easy access to the beach and a short drive to attractions like the zoo and sea world. The kitchen is large and nice to cook in with all the basics provided. The big bath and two showers are awesome. The bed in the main is very comfortable, the sheets are high quality and a variety of nice pillows are provided. The only reason I can't give it 5 is because the bed in the second bedroom is not very comfortable and makes quite a bit of noise - though here too the sheets and pillows are nice.

Dominique was very helpful and quick to respond to our questions.

Like most condos in the area, the parking space is small but manageable even with our full size rental.

We would definitely recommend staying here!

Enjoyed every minute!

  • 4 of 5

I wish I could have given this place 5 stars. It was just steps away from the most perfect sand on the beach. Easy walking distance to great cafes & shops. We had everything we needed to enjoy our vacation. Instructions were easy and the owners very accommodating. The beds were cozy and there were a lot of beach towels and chairs provided. Overall a great experience!

It was a bit unfortunate there were a few things not working in the unit. In the master suite, the jetted tub has jets that don't work & the tv in the second bedroom was also broken. It was a bit of a bummer as part of the reason we booked the spot was for the tub, but it didn't ruin the stay. It was a great place to get some solid beach time!

Sunset views!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a tremendous Mission Beach vacation at the Surf Rider. Couldn't have asked for a more comfortable place to stay. All the amenities you could want (HD tv, dishwasher, fire place, two showers, large bathtub, sky lights, great lighting in general etc). Great location for exercise, nightlife, and short uber to downtown. Very clean and super friendly manager, can't wait to our next visit to this unit!!!

The view 😄😄😄

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay and the view of the ocean was awesome. After a long day of work and travel the complimentary bottle of wine and snacks were an awesome touch. Would definitely recommend this to all

Great Location!

  • 3 of 5

I hesitated to write a review, because the manager/owners were so helpful. Pros: Very Clean. The kitchen was stocked with more supplies than I had expected. We have stayed in multiple other locations, and I usually bring extra pots/spatulas, etc because they are almost always missing. Not the case here.. Also there was plenty of laundry soap, dish soap, trash bags, beach towels, chairs, etc. The pictures are accurate. The master shower is really nice.. Parking was easy and convenient. I lost the code, not once but twice to get the key, and then return the key. I called the manager and she was super nice, and gave it to us. The location is wonderful not to far from the pier, or shops, and in a quiet area of Mission Beach. As per other reviews this is not an "ocean front unit" per se, it's 3 units back, but the front door faces the ocean.. I was perfectly fine with this as I had already expected it. You can see the ocean from the living room, but the only way to hear the waves was to leave the front door open. We had a toilet stoppage and they came out within a few hours to clear it. Cons.. This was the reason I only gave it 3 stars.. The master bed was terrible. It doesn't have a box spring under it, so we weren't sure if that was the issue. We were literally up all night for 3 nights tossing and turning, both mine and my boyfriend's lower backs hurt.. (I didn't let management know, as I don't know if their was anything they could have done during our stay). My mom was in the guest bedroom, and she had a traditional bed, and slept great! My 20 year old daughter was on the living room sofa/futon and was quite comfortable as well. If it wasn't for the bed I would rate it higher.. The management is really easy to deal with.

Owner's Response: Hi Tami, I am so sorry the bed was not comfortable, we just bough a really nice mattress less than a year ago! I will definitely look into ways to make it more comfortable. Sincerely, Dominique
