About Mark Schindler

Hi Folks. My name is Farmer. I'm Mark's pooch. Most people call me a golden retriever. Others call me 'handsome.' I don't know what that all means, but I kinda make people happy.

Mark's a good guy. He lives about 4 miles north, in La Jolla. He's usually there to greet people. He brings me along for company. He's there to make sure that everything's done right.

He knows a lot of people down in the beach area - South Mission, Mission, PB and La Jolla. Sometimes he can get you discounts at local establishments. Just mention that you're staying with, 'Mark-the guy with the dog.;

Mark Schindler purchased this apartment in 2012

Steps To The Beaches At World Famous Mission Bay Park
average rating of 4.0 based on 2 reviews

Immaculately clean, small and very hot in the summer!

  • 3 of 5

The studio is tastefully decorated and immaculately clean. It is a basement studio under the stairs to the condo above. You can hear people walking upstairs and moving things around which at times vibrates the room. There are NO windows that open and it is hot! There is the front door and a back door which leads to a hotter small laundry room with egress. I am a woman who was staying there alone (visiting family several blocks away. I didn't want to stay with them in their small, crowded quarters). I was worried about my safety.

Mark left me a magnetic screen which fastens with velcro to the outside walls and magnets to keep it closed. I hung this up when I got there at night. This worked well, however, I had to sleep with the door wide open to get fresh air and ventilation. Needless to say, this was not too safe. There is a ceiling fan and a wonderful small fan but when not in the path of the fan, it is hot. Mark brought me another fan which I suppose helped. There are numerous beach items: surf boards, boogie boards, chairs, towels, pails, shovels etc.

I would like to speak about Mark. He is a very kind, compassionate man who only wants his guests to be happy while on vacation. I let him know that the studio needed, coffee filters, silverware, a outdoor bulb, paper towels and a few other items. These items were there when I returned at the end of the day complete with a pound of coffee.

I would like to suggest that an air conditioner be put in the unit. There are several models that are stand alone or ones that can attach to the wall as well as units that can be vented outside. A hole could be made in the plexi-glass window covering to be vented outside.

There is a nice television and the unit has wi-fi. For me, the biggest issue was the lack of ventilation and safety concerns because I had to sleep with the door open. I would have rated this 2-2.5 stars but Mark's attention and compassion gives it a 3.

I appreciate all that Mark did for me to enhance my stay. Thank you Mark!

Owner's Response: Hi Folks. We were happy to have Deb as our guest, and as with all guests, we pride ourselves in doing everything in our power to ensure that they have a wonderful vacation. Deb, thank you for the nice things you had to say about my 'attention' and 'compassion.' Thank you very-much. Anyway, Deb voiced a concern about her safety, and we appreciate her feedback. The entire beach area is an active summer vacation destination. Hence, we have always had a security gate, which can easily be locked by our guests to prevent entry from unregistered individuals. We encourage all guests to use this safety feature. Hence, we have had ZERO reports of safety or security issues since we opened-up 'The Trout House' four years ago. Deb did join us for an unusually hot, July weekend. Usually our ceiling fan and our floor fan do an excellent job of cooling-down The Trout House. But you know, she had a valuable suggestion for those three or four unusually hot, July days. So, we are in the process of adding a larger window and we are addressing the issue of additional ventilation. I promise! Thanks for the feedback. We feel that 'The Trout House' is an EXCELLENT VALUE for singles or couples who wish to be centrally located in Mission Beach, only five houses away from the beaches on bayside and one and a half blocks from the Pacific Ocean. Take a look at our other properties, Casa Amelia and Casa Sofia also. Bye. - Mark and Farmer (the pooch)

This unit as all of the owners was clean and well appointed. Met all of our expectations and was very comfortable. Mark is always a terrific host and does all he can to make your stay wonderful. Have returned to his units several times and will continue to do so.
