About the property

A rare find! This 5-bedroom/4 bath townhome with attached guest quarters.

Truly the best of two worlds, luxury and comfort combine seamlessly in this custom high-end, 5-bedroom 4-bath, 2-level, penthouse & second-story gem. From the moment you enter and step beyond the skylight-bright and unique atrium-foyer, you cannot help but exclaim over the spacious, well-appointed and inviting world that awaits your special getaway.

This very large, bicoastal beauty combines an upscale, east coast waterfront-aesthetic with casual, comfortable living in the west coast style. With its panoramic ocean views, incredible spaciousness, sophisticated & upscale-yet-comfy amenities, and so much more, this is a property like no other in Mission Beach!

Recent renovations involved the unique and very successful combination of what had originally been 2 separate condominiums into one unbelievable, 2-story home, which is perfect for multiple or extended families.

The main living spaces occupy the 3rd floor penthouse, which also includes three of the bedrooms and two of the baths, the master bath having been featured in a 2011 Kitchen and Bath Ideas magazine article shortly after the property was completely renovated.

With an oceanfront living room that comfortably seats ten, and with plenty of deep-seating around a gaslit-stone fire pit/coffee table on its oceanfront balcony, the penthouse level is sure to captivate every member of your party in the kind of warm, casually-elegant embrace that can only result in vacation memories to last a life-time.

Perfect for entertaining or simply relaxing with family and friends, the large, skylit chef’s kitchen and its huge center island with bar seating and adjacent, balcony-front dining room, are sure to become a favorite gathering spot for all. Whether enjoying a meal prepared with the Wolf professional 6-burner range, Dacor microwave oven, and more, or simply toasting another great day together in Mission Beach, the open floor plan with its sweeping ocean views ensures plenty of space for gathering together in relaxed comfort and style.

Designer touches abound in the spacious master suite, with its double-door entry, king bed, floor-to-ceiling windows capturing ocean views and breezes and embracing a cozy sitting area for two, balcony, custom built-in cabinetry, large TV and media center. Relax in the sitting area, or truly indulge yourself in the magazine-featured master bath, with its deep soaking tub that rests in a windowed alcove overlooking the beach, and so much more. Offering the luxuries of a hotel combined with the comforts home, it truly doesn’t get any better than this!

Another world awaits as you descend the interior staircase to the 2nd floor “pirate suite”, so named for its playful designer touches, reminiscent of old wooden sailing ships and characters of a bygone era. But high-end features and amenities continue to unfold here as well, as you move into the oceanfront living spaces with private balcony, large ocean view sitting room with pop-up TV cabinet, raised dining with view for 6, and adjacent kitchenette, where you’ll find a Wolf 2-burner cooktop, Gaggenau oven, Jenn-Air microwave and SubZero undercounter fridge/freezer.

Private spaces on this floor include a second master suite and an additional bedroom and bath. As in the penthouse, the master bath on this floor was also featured in Bed and Bath Ideas magazine, and both bathrooms on this floor also include spacious walk-in showers with multiple sprayer options, heated towel racks and heated floors. The second bedroom includes a daybed with trundle.

With its own private entrance and stand-alone amenities, the pirate suite is the perfect adjunct solution for larger gatherings of family or close friends.

Each floor has its own laundry facilities, and convenient parking for 3 cars is divided between a 1-car tandem garage and a 2-car tandem parking pad.

Ocean front property in Mission Beach

  • 5 of 5

This 5 bed room accommodation was perfect for our family of 9 adults and a baby. Great top floor with kitchen, dining area, family room, and outdoor veranda all overlooking the ocean. With this lay out, we were able to cook and eat in on several nights. They also provided bikes and beach needs equipment. Everything in the home is top notch quality. I would highly recommend this property. Kevin.

The property inside is beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of eight was celebrating my husband and my 50th wedding anniversary for one week. This could not have been a more wonderful celebration. The condo is beautiful and oh so comfortable with 5 bedrooms and 4 baths broken up on two floor. Even though the staircase was a pain for me back and forth it gave us privacy and a place to just relax and be away from the crowd. The view is spectacular. Our three grandsons took wake boarding classes across to the bay...just five minutes away. The entire family was in the cold Pacific every day and it was so much fun with the boogie boards. The restaurant Mrs B's Coconut Cafe is just around the corner and we certainly enjoyed their flank steak twice. We highly recommend it as the best thing on the menu. Good place to relax around the fire pit. If you want the fire pit make a reservation. Our adult children surprised my husband and I with a Clambake on the beach. Wow! Was that delicious! The Clambake Catering did all the work. They served on a buffet table shrimp, crab legs and lobster with potatoes, salad, corn and fresh rolls. They set the table up right on the beach for eight of us. It would have been nice to pop a bottle of champagne but "no alcohol on the beach." Back to the condo...there were bikes in the garage area for use and some water toys which the kids appreciated. You have three parking spaces...two outside and one inside the garage which you share with another person. There is a fire pit on the upper floor which is wonderful in the evening while having a glass of wine or soft drink enjoying the sunset. The condo is decorated with taste and there were quite a few designer aspects especially in the bathrooms. The kitchen was fully stocked with all the utensils you need although the fry pans need replacing and there was no dish detergent for hand washing dishes...but I think that was overlooked when the apartment was cleaned. There was also a very small bar of soap in the shower...bring your own if you like a larger bar. The towels were plenty and very custom...even with ruffles. There was a washer and dryer on both floors and cooking facilities on both floors. Most of the time we spent on the upper floor. It was roomy and inviting with it's large glass windows looking out onto the beach/ocean. All and all I would definitely go back to this fantastic condo. A bit pricey but that's San Diego. The most beautiful place in the world

Best on the Beach!!!

  • 5 of 5

Location, amenities, views, comfort, luxury... this beach house has it all. I've stayed in a number of fantastic homes on the beach, but this one truly is a cut above. If you have a large group (we had an extended family of 9 adults), you will be more then thrilled with this home which gives you more than enough space to spread out, relax, and enjoy beauty of the beach. The location is really as good as it gets; you'll walk to everything you want on the beach, from bars and restaurants, to water sport rentals. Really, if you don't plan to leave the beach, you'll hardly need a car (except maybe for groceries), but with the ample on site parking, you wont mind having one either. I would highly recommend this home 10 times over and I certainly hope to and expect to be back again. Rebbecca was a fantastic and helpful host, and even the neighbors were all very friendly and polite. Bottom line, you wont go wrong here!!

Doesn't get better than this!!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home was everything we hoped for including being right on the beach. We are 3 generations and were able to spread out so all had their own space and two beautiful decks, one covered and one uncovered to enjoy the view, in or out of the sun! The property was immaculate. Beautiful kitchen and views galore! The manager was always available and helpful. Walking distance to everything! Hope to be back next year!!

We LOVED this amazing home!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful luxury vacation home this is! We are a family of 9, 5 adults and 4 children, ages 9,10,11, 12. It was perfect for my two kids and their families. Having two separate living areas was ideal so that the families could regroup and have time alone together at bedtimes and in the mornings. The kids LOVED having their own living room to hang out and work on crafts, watch some movies, and practice their annual family show! It is a beautiful home with every possible amenity imaginable. Loved having two kitchens and two laundry facilities. My most favorite part was the 180 degree view of the ocean and beach from the penthouse living and dining room. We enjoyed the balconies and especially the 3rd floor patio with fire pit, which we used every single day! We've been coming to Mission Beach for over 35 years and this is by far our favorite place. We can't wait to come back again! Thank you Rebecca and to the owners for sharing their magnificent place!

Pretty amazing and Perfect in so many ways for a large family.

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect vacation home for large families. Amenities are fantastic. Two washer and dryers were great as we used our beach towels everyday. The lower level was perfect for our grown children and their children. Everything we needed was provided. Loved cooking meals in the kitchen with wonderful appliances.

Large areas for family to gather. The Master bedroom and bath as well as dressing room was so comfortable and beautiful as well.

Amazing views, steps to the beach, the strand to bike or walk on, and great local restaurants only a couple of blocks away.

Right outside your front door on Mission Beach
Car: not necessary

While some may compare San Diego’s Mission Beach to the East Coast’s Atlantic City and Coney Island, there is a unique Southern California vibe you can’t find anywhere else here. Nestled between Pacific Beach on the north side, and Belmont Park on its southern side, Mission Beach offers a lively and robust variety of activities in the sun, surf and sand. From great coffee spots and bakeries to fine dining eateries, Mission Bay yacht club as well as the Mission Beach aquatic center , there's plenty to do without getting in your car! Most of all, the 6 mile boardwalk is fun for walking and biking and let's you enjoy all that Mission beach has to offer!
