About Shaz Mclean

I am English and my husband South African. We moved to the US 18 years ago. We live in Solana Beach, have two children of 15 and 12 and two Jack Russell Terriers. We have two other vacation rental 379170 and 497367 which we also completely remodeled. I love the whole process of demo through to soft furnishings and am hands on in every stage. I hope it shows how much thought I put into you having the perfect place to stay while visiting Mission Beach.

That is my mission. Shaz :)

Our stay was delightful! We are already thinking about when we can go back!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to San Diego. We have two young daughters, and drove there. The home was beautiful and worked great for our needs. It is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. One of our daughters slept on the bottom bunk in one room, the other in her pack n play in another room, and we had the last bedroom. The kitchen is small, but well equipped. We cooked most of our breakfasts there, and a few dinners. There is no dishwasher, but we didn't mind hand washing the few dishes we used. The TV was equipped with Amazon Prime. The garage is tight. We have a Volkswagen Passat and could not quite fit in all the way. We backed it in as far as it would go and tied the doors shut as best we could.

The location is just perfect: a block or so from the ocean and steps from the bay. We used all the toys in the garage - paddle boards, sand toys, beach chairs, and boogie board. We didn't get a chance to use the bikes. We visited sea world, the zoo, the safari park and Point Loma.

This was an absolutely wonderful trip and we loved the vacation home. The location was perfect. The amenities were perfect. We will definitely consider staying here again. It was perfect for our 2 young kiddos. They had an awesome time!

Beautiful Stay in Mission Beach!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in several rentals in Mission Beach over the years and Shaz's property is definitely an A+++. It's beautifully decorated - the beds AND the pillows are REALLY comfortable (and that's not always the case), comfortable furniture, great TVs (with Amazon TV), working/clean BBQ grill and lovely front patio. It is STEPS to the beach at the bay and steps to all the wonderful restaurants and shops of Mission Beach. Aside from the beautiful decor of the cottage, there are FOUR beach cruisers, two paddle boards, beach chairs, a whole drawer of beach towels, toys for the kids and everything you could possible want in a vacation spot. We enjoyed biking around the bay on all but one of the days. Unfortunately, it was never warm enough to want to get on the paddle boards which just means we need to go back again! A nice, homey extra touch is the bottle of champagne with four chilled flutes just waiting for us in the fridge. Shaz is very responsive and easy to contact if there are questions. We highly recommend this rental for a wonderful San Diego/Mission Beach vacation.

Comfortable, clean, perfect family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family of four with two children ages 5 & 7 stayed here for a week. We couldn't have been more happy! The kids loved the bunk room and it was nice that they had their own space and my husband and I could relax after long days of being on the go. The cottage is in a great location and everything you could possibly need is included! Walk to several restaurants and coffee shops, beach, Boardwalk and bay. Having the laundry room is key and we found that coming from the east coast we should have packed half of what we did. Overall the cottage is beautifully decorated, clean and very comfortable for a family vacation. Thanks so much!

Lovely Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our three nights at this North Mission Beach property! The location was great, & gave us easy access to both Mission Bay & the beach. The house was immaculate, & the beds & pillows were very comfortable. The neighborhood was quiet. We appreciated the bottle of chilled champagne in the refrigerator. Parking was a bit of a challenge, & the half bath is only a toilet with outside access via the laundry room, so not quite what we expected, but we would definitely stay here if we were in the San Diego area again!

Great location between beach and bay

  • 4 of 5

Beautifully renovated cottage between the bay and beach. We travelled as a family of 5 with 3 teenage girls. They loved the location and the paddle boards were a real bonus and much used by us all. We all went jogging in the mornings, the girls riding the bikes, what a blast we had! Great location, very close to sea world. Only downside to this property is the lack of parking, we had a GMC acadia and we couldn't park it in the space next to the house, we were there over July 4th and we couldn't go anywhere for 2-3 days as we were more than likely not going to be able to park it again!! That being said, we had a great time there in this cozy cottage, very clean and comfortable, washing machine, dryer and extra restroom in the back of the house, accessed by going out kitchen door. Relatively safe, but we were warned about not leaving items outside the property by some regular renters in the area!

Perfect Beach Cottage

  • 4 of 5

Stayed at this Mission Beach cottage with my husband and our two college-age daughters. It was a beautiful little cottage, and such a great place to stay! Small, but laid out in a very spacious way. Remodeled with a beautiful, cozy, shabby-chic style. First words from my daughter, "I want to live here!" Two bedrooms have really comfy queen beds. And the third bedroom has built in bunk-beds that are like a cozy hide-out. Location is amazing! We walked along the beach and the bay. Walked to the boardwalk, and to the Pacific Beach area. Lots of restaurants within a few blocks. It was on a quiet street in a really cute area. It was a great way to experience living by the beach.

There were only a couple of small downsides. Parking was hard because we had driven down with our van, and it didn't fit in the cottage garage. There was public parking 2 blocks away at the Santa Clara point. But, the parking markings were ambiguous and we got a $75 ticket one night. Watch for the red curb, even where there are parking slots marked with lines! There is also paid parking 1 block away at the Women's club. A deal at $5-10 per night.

The other small downside was that the cottage doesn't have central heat or air. In our case it was rather cold because the nighttime temps were in the 30s. There is a fireplace insert and two space heaters. It was a bit hard to warm up. But, we figured it out.

Overall, we LOVED this place!!! And we really want to come back again soon!
