Notes:
We rent our beach cruisers for $25 a pair for the week or part thereof. Same with our 2-person kayak. Both are used but in good shape, comfortable and CHEAP! There are plenty of Rental Companies nearby as well for surfboards, paddle boards, etc. The cottage is a duplex and has another unit of exactly the same size, check with us for availability! Both units share the large front patio. There is a one car detached garage (for a compact or midsize car) which is a bonus as parking is very scarce at the beach. The house has central heat for the colder months and a portable air conditioner for the summer.

Quiet! Cozy little cottage

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. What a neat little place, perfect for our small family of three. It's the perfect location right in between the Bay, and the Ocean. You are literally a couple minute walk to either one. Having a parking spot in the garage in HUGE! Parking is a premium in that area. The cottage has everything you need, including toys for the beach. We will be returning soon.

Great Location in Mission Beach

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a better location for our family vacation. We were taking our first trip with our six month old and Karin had a pack and play and high chair ready for us upon arrival. The condo is located in a great spot in Mission Beach. The garage parking spot is an added bonus; many people drove by on the busy weekend asking how we had gotten our spot. Would definitely stay again if we're back in Mission Beach!

FABULOUS LOCATION, EXCELLENT DECK, CLOSE TO EVERYTHING

  • 5 of 5

Staying in this home felt like home. Four of us, my two daughters and my granddaughter. It worked beautifully for us. Karin supplied us with paknplay, highchair and stroller, and extra blankets for paknplay. Above and beyond Karin, thank you.We settled in quickly, got the bikes out and enjoyed riding and walking the bayside walk and the ocean side walk everyday. BBQ'd on the deck and enjoyed having dinner on it, looking out towards the Bay, so relaxing. Checked out Belmont Park, loved the sounds from the roller coaster! Definitely no need for a car! Karin was always available to answer any questions. This was just the best holiday ever. Thank you Karin for everything. We will be back!

A Most Gracios Host

  • 4 of 5

As the title, Karin is indeed a gracious and responsive host. The apartment is spotlessly clean and recently remodeled. If you are a cook, the kitchen is fully equipped. The beach and the bay are within a few minutes walk, and I loved riding the bicycle along the boardwalk. I believe it extends as far as La Jolla which has wonderful tide pools and rock formations.

The drawback for me is that there really is no convenient or comfortable outside area. For myself, to. be comfortable in an apartment, I need light, a feeling of openness--small is not important. I expected, for whatever reason, a beach cottage. This is not that. It is a rather enclosed and darkish apartment; never a space in which I wanted to spend time. However, the price is right, and the location good and, again, Karin, the owner, was absolutely generous. All-in-all, it was a great vacation. Do rent the bicycles.m it is a joy riding happily oceanside.

Owner's Response: Alice~ We are so glad you had a great vacation, and enjoyed the kitchen and the bikes! Just a little confused about you not finding a comfortable outside area. That is something guests usually say they enjoy the most - our large patio with table and chairs for dining outside and two lounge chairs for relaxing in the open air. Plus a bbq for grilling. Two weeks ago, we re-stuccoed the brick wall and just added a new white cottage gate for extra cuteness! Anyway, thanks again, it was a pleasure meeting you! Perhaps try the front unit next time which, having more windows, is about as airy and light and beachy as cottages can get!

Pacific Beach

This area of Central Mission Beach is a peninsula of residences with the Pacific Ocean on the west and Mission Bay to the east. Guests can choose from the busier beach boardwalk full of activity and people watching or the quieter bay boardwalk. Bike riding, rollerblading or strolling are popular activities on either side. The location is fantastic as there is a bus stop on Mission Beach Blvd. which goes to the main transit center. Shopping is also easy as there are many small convenience stores nearby as well as a Ralph's Supermarket and Trader Joe's - each about a mile away. This location is just a 15 minute drive to all main features in San Diego: Sea World, The San Diego Zoo, The Gaslamp Quarter Downtown, La Jolla Cove and Sea Port Village. Our cozy cottage is located just a minute's walk from Belmont Park and the famous roller coaster, as well the Pacific Ocean and three doors down from the sand in Mission Bay.
