Overview

About the property

2 bedroom, 2 bath, apartment just a stones throw away from the Beach and the Bay

Spacious 1st floor apartment in quiet South Mission Beach. Bright, airy, open floorpan combining living, dining and kitchen areas with central island and barstools. Includes large master bedroom with private bathroom and French doors opening onto the front patio. Tandem 2-car garage from alley with direct access to interior of apartment. Large front patio includes BBQ and comfortable outdoor furniture on which to dine and relax, the patio is yours during your stay. We are child- and pet-friendly! Your rental includes everything you need for a beach holiday: surfboards, boogie boards, and beach games and toys for young and old alike. We also provide all modern conveniences such as laundry, cable television, and wireless internet for your use and enjoyment.

Located on one of the quiet tree-lined walkways of Mission Beach, this unit is just steps away from both the beach and bay. To the west, just across Mission Blvd is the exciting, vibrant boardwalk and the ocean front setting of South Mission Beach. Surf, boogie-board, or swim in the waves, stretch out on the sand in the sun, or make sand castles and play on the shoreline. Take an easy walk to South Mission Beach Park with its grassy picnic areas, basketball and volleyball courts, and rocky jetty extending into the ocean. Walk, jog, skate or bike along the famous boardwalk, which meanders for miles along the entire beachfront and around all of Mission Bay.

To the east, just a few steps from your door, you'll find the quiet, peaceful bayfront and the tranquil waters of Mariner's Basin, a protected arm of Mission Bay. Sailboats rest at anchor, wide sandy beaches stretch along Bayside Walk, and grassy park and playground areas are just a few minutes away. Watch boats cruise in and out of the channel between rocky jetties, gaze across the water to Dog Beach, Hospitality Point, enjoy views of bridges, the Hyatt Islandia hotel, and the SeaWorld Skytower.

Half a mile north is Belmont Park, featuring the restored 1925 wooden Giant Dipper roller coaster and other amusement park rides. The olympic-sized indoor swimming pool The Plunge is also here, as well as the Wave House and assorted retail shops and eateries. Farther north but within easy biking distance, enjoy Crystal Pier, boat rental facilities, as well as the exciting shopping, restaurants, and nightlife of Pacific Beach along Garnet Avenue.

This rental is situated perfectly to enjoy the vast playground of Mission Bay Park, where you can bike for over ten miles along the waterfront areas without ever encountering street traffic. Enjoy swimming, snorkeling/diving, boating, sailing, waterskiing, surfing, windsurfing, parasailing, jetskiing, and many other activities.

Within 5-20 minutes is SeaWorld, the world-famous San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park, and Old Town with its excellent Mexican restaurants. In the downtown area you'll find Seaport Village, Petco Park, our modern Convention Center, and the historic Gaslamp Quarter. Or visit scenic La Jolla, with its beautiful Cove and upscale shops and restaurants.

Half an hour's drive takes you to Mexico to the south or Legoland to the north. A bit farther is the Wild Animal Park, gambling casinos, and the quaint historic gold rush town of Julian, in the mountains east of San Diego. Even Disneyland and Knott's Berry Farm can be easily done as a day trip.

About Tara Strauss

We are native San Diego residents who live and work in the area. We are San Diego City firefighters with over 29 years' combined experience serving the citizens of San Diego. We are proud to own property here and to share the charms of our fair city with visitors.

Tara Strauss purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Tara Strauss chose Mission Beach

Mission Beach is ideally situated to provide you the opportunity to enjoy the best of what San Diego has to offer. Centrally located with easy access to all major attractions, and just one block from either the beach or the bay, arguably San Diego's best feature. With only one thoroughfare providing limited access to the South Mission Beach properties, this area is quieter and more peaceful than the nearby neighborhoods of North Mission and Pacific Beach, which experience more traffic and activity. If you're in the mood for a little nightlife, two classic local watering holes, the Beachcomber and the Pennant, are just a few minutes' walk away, as well as convenient markets and delicatessens.

What makes this apartment unique

We think this property is the ideal place for your San Diego getaway, whether you're a couple looking for a romantic retreat, a group of friends on vacation, or a family looking for fun activities for parents and little ones alike. First floor location gives you immediate access to the beach and bay. A spacious tandem garage provides off-street shelter and protection for two vehicles. Take advantage of our complimentary surfboards, and boogie boards to enjoy this perfectly-situated location. Enjoy outdoor barbecuing on our spacious front patio or cook up a meal in our well-appointed kitchen. Watch TV or a Netflix movie on our flat-screen TV, and connect to complimentary wireless internet for your electronic devices.

A wonderful family trip

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we made our way onto the patio, we knew this was going to be a great place -- and it was! The building is lovely, and the setting is so cool: a large private patio with all the amenities in the midst of a funky/cool/tranquil/beautiful setting, with the bay to the right and the ocean to the left. Tara has made sure that every need is met - the kitchen is stocked with all necessities for cooking, the bathrooms are spacious, and the beds are very comfortable. The living room is perfect for hanging out and watching TV. Everything was perfectly clean, modern, and in great condition. It rained during our stay so we couldn't barbeque or hang out on the beach -- yet we still had a great time! Best of all, Tara was very welcoming - she gave us great advance directions, and when we had questions while on-site, she was immediately responsive and wanted, above all, for us to have a comfortable and happy stay. I hope we can come back again!

Perfect stay for our family of four.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay. It had everything we needed from dishes, laundry, towels, toys for the beach. The location couldn't be better- we walked to the bay and over to the beach daily. Although it wasn't swimming weather for us, we enjoyed exploring the area and all the things to do in San Diego. This place was awesome for our family of four, and our boys loved hanging out - it felt home-like to us. We definitely hope to be back someday!

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

Great spot just a couple blocks from the beach. The location makes it relatively quiet, although we were there in the off-season. The patio is fantastic for eating and relaxing outside. The living room was very comfy. No DVD player, but the TV lets you sign in to Netflix and Hulu. The kitchen is great. We didn't cook any big meals, but everything seemed to be there if we wanted to. Nice island for making drinks and putting out snacks. The bathrooms were nice. Great to have two. The master bedroom seemed nice. My wife and I stayed in the second room with the bunk beds. We slept HORRIBLY. The bed wasn't that comfy, and movement was fairly pronounced for the other person. We were way too hot (no AC). There was a fan in the closet I should have used but didn't. That probably would have helped a lot. The garage barely fit our Toyota Camry rental, but it did fit! We had to fold in the side mirrors. It was great having the surfboards to use. They are banged up but they work. And they do have beach towels. The area is a lot quieter than Pacific Beach, but close enough for a cheap uber if you want some distance from the craziness. I would stay here again. Enjoy!

Car: recommended

Only minutes away from the Catamaran Spa, SeaWorld, the world famous San Diego Zoo; Balboa Park with botanical gardens, museums, historic architecture, miles of walking paths, and an Imax theatre, etc; Old Town with its authentic Mexican restaurants; SeaPort Village, downtown San Diego's GasLamp Quarter, the Convention Center, Petco Park, and numerous golf courses including Torrey Pines (the home of the Buick Invitational) and abundant executive courses.

Half hour from LegoLand, 40 minutes to The San Diego Zoo's Safari Park, 1 hour to Temecula wine tasting country, 75 minutes to the quaint historic gold rush town of Julian now famous for its apple pies, and another 30 minutes beyond that is beautiful Anza Borrego Desert State Park .Even Disneyland, Six Flags Magic Mountain and Knotts Berry Farm can be done as a day trip. Mexico is only 25 minutes away. Locally, you can enjoy sport fishing, whale watching, and all manner of water sports activities.

If the usual tourist sights are not your thing, kick back and enjoy Mission Beach's trendy ethnic and seafood restaurants, boutiques and bars or its wide white-sand beaches that stretch for miles.
