You will love this gem of a vacation rental. One of a kind. You will be pleasantly surprised at just how nice this is for the price. We are offering a 2 bedroom 1 bath totally furnished unit. The first bedroom has a queen size bed and the second bedroom has two twins or a king size bed configuration. It's a second level unit that over looks the beautiful bay with a large deck, table and barbecue just outside your door. There is parking for one vehicle. Boogie boards, beach chairs, toys and towels! All for you and your children's enjoyment! Once you discover this Gem, you will want to come back year after year. ***WE RENT FROM SATURDAY TO SATURDAY FROM JUNE-AUGUST ****
The city beach at South Mission Beach is more subdued than the neighbor beaches to the north. This stretch of sand resides in a residential area with pathways connecting the boardwalk with Mission Blvd, and defining small neighborhoods made up of clusters of small funky cottages, beach condos and rentals. South Mission Beach is frequented by a younger crowd, especially those that play beach volleyball, as well as local residents and tourists vacationing in beach rentals. The beach is defined largely by the boardwalk with funky homes, volleyball courts, wide sand, and secluded atmosphere.
We loved the location. You can walk everywhere, to the bay, the ocean, Belmont park and a little market if you need something. The deck was amazing. we watched fireworks every night. The house was very clean and the kitchen was well equipped. There were boogie boards and beach chairs available for use, everything you need for a great beach trip.
This cute little 2 bedroom upstairs apartment right on the bay was perfect for my husband and me. The large deck has a wonderful view of the bay. We got to see the Sea World fireworks at night. After a busy day walking around the bay and beach, all within easy access, it was lovely to come home to this quiet retreat and enjoy the views of the bay. Beds were comfy and the property was very clean too. I'd definitely stay there again.
This was our first visit to San Diego, so we did not really know what to expect. It was also our first VRBO rental as a "customer" (We own a few VRBO cabins that we rent out, but have never been on the other side). First, the location is excellent. It has a great view of Mission Bay, and is just steps (maybe 20-30 steps?) to the beach @ the bay. This area was very quiet and great for our little kids. The unit is just a short walk to the beach on the Ocean as well. Probably 3-4 minutes to walk to the oceanfront.
The unit itself is well equipped with kitchen supplies, towels, etc. The beds were comfortable and the bedrooms were able to get relatively dark with the shades. The place was clean, but not new. Nothing was high end but everything was definitely in good shape and useable. I do not think you'll find a 2 bedroom for a better price than this.
The large deck that overlooks the bay was very nice, we ate out there on occasion and a gas grill was out there for cooking. 3 Boogie Boards were provided as well as sand toys and beach chairs. Parking was a bit tight, but close to the unit and in a quiet alley just steps from the entrance to the unit. Security is good, as the outside fence has a lock, and unit itself has a lock as well. The owners were downstairs in a lower unit, but their unit is actually not directly below (the garage is) so no worries about noise (not that I would be worried anyways!)
There are a few little shops, markets, etc within a block on Mission Blvd. Check out Mission Beach Coffee Break for a great Acai Bowl and coffee. It is under a 10 minute walk to Belmont Park. The airport is only a 15 minute drive, Sea World is even closer (only 5-10 min drive), and San Diego Whale Watch also departs from a Marina only 5 minutes away.
The only negatives (which are little fault of the owner but more location) was the airplane traffic. Probably any unit in Mission Beach area would have similar airplane noise. 6:30AM until about 10PM pretty constant. The only other negative I can think of it was hot. However, fans were provided and the particular week we went was high 80s. After researching it, not many of these vacation rentals have AC unless they are pretty high end/expensive - so I think the heat would have been experienced pretty much anywhere.
Thanks for the great stay!
We had a great week-long escape from the Phoenix heat in Shari's cute upper floor condo! Very clean & nicely decorated, with plenty of room for 2 people. The location is great for walking & biking everywhere, and we enjoyed relaxing on the comfy patio lounge chairs overlooking the bay each evening - don't miss the free fireworks display from Sea World, right over the bay (at 8:45 nightly! :-)
We had a lovely time. The place was perfect size for 2 adults and 2 children. The home owner below us was extremely helpful and sweet. She made sure we had places to eat, beach towels, shovels, boogie boards, and would have helped us with anything we asked for! The place was stocked with every utensil and kitchen item needed. The deck is across from Sea World and we enjoyed fire works every evening. The ocean is about a 5 minute walk and the bay is a skip away. Plenty of attractions and eateries within walking distance. Only two things to be aware of; the airport is close and the noise is fairly loud from about 630 am to 11 pm. Made a good alarm clock. Also, the parking areas are narrow but parking is very close to the unit. Overall we would definitely come back!
My husband and I stayed here for a week with our grandchildren. The beach was far less crowded than the oceanside. There was a playground and grocery store within walking distance. The owners were very accommodating. We had a fun time!
