About Bob Chicca

Retired USMC and former POW, I am married to Vanessa. I like building and repairing things, especially Antique lamps. I am treasurer of our Bonita Kiwanis club and am involved in numerous community projects. It is just fun to be alive.

Bob Chicca purchased this condo in 2003

Why Bob Chicca chose Mission Beach

We picked this property because we fell in love with it and feel that it is just a wonderful place to be at the beach and enjoy the area.

What makes this condo unique

This place is unique in being right on the Bay and having a grass area right in front of the door to play and picnic on with the sandy beach and bay right there. The grass even helps keep the sand out of the house as you go in and out. Sitting on the porch you see San Diego and the fireworks from Sea World right there to see whenever they are fired off.

Great location and amenities!

  • 5 of 5

This is a fabulous location! The house is located within walking distance to so many things! The aquatic center is a stones throw away, we were able to walk there and rent paddle boards. You can't beat the location.

the house had all the amenities we needed. It was perfect for us and another couple. Our 2 year old stayed in our bedroom. There is a trundle in the living room which I could imagine older kids using.

Things to know:

The house is in the boardwalk and bikes ride by quickly. We had to watch our daughter as she crossed.

Like the other reviewers commented the parking spot on the side of house is really narrow. We were able to get our highlander in the spot but it was difficult to get in and out.

Bob was extremely responsive and helpful when we ran into a snag with the process to reserve.

We would definitely stay here again

Great location and outdoor space

  • 4 of 5

This was our first rental on VRBO and we were very pleased. The location along the bay with the grassy area in front was perfect for us (4 adults and 2 kids). The patio was a great perk for having morning coffee or relaxing, especially with the retractable awning. There is a well used recreational path right between the patio and the grassy area and we chatted with a few people out for exercise that went right by. The beds were comfortable and we were provided with plenty of towels for the bathroom. It is a quick walk from the property to the ocean and we did that each day, stopping at the Olive Baking Company on the way for coffee and pastries. It was very good!

Having two parking spaces was one of the reasons I selected this property, but our full-size SUV (Toyota Sequoia) would not fit in either the garage or the parking space next to the garage. Our other car was a Toyota Sienna mini-van, and that fit into the garage with some maneuvering in the alley, but we could not fit that into the space next the garage. The space next to the garage really needs to be a small compact car or small sedan with a good turning radius and also not be a very wide car. We did have a couple of hiccups with the cleaning people. They left their supplies and didn't take out the trash from the last renter prior to our arrival, and only left one bar of soap. We called Bob and he quickly helped resolve this - we did receive a second bar of soap the next day and they also removed their supplies.

Overall, we enjoyed our stay at this property and would consider renting again in the future. Bob was very response to answering all my questions prior to renting, was a great communicator after we rented and prior to our arrival, and also assisted us while we were staying on property.

Annual Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have made so many memories at 3680 Bayside Walk. Our family has stayed at this location for the past 12 years. Our oldest boy was 4 when we started our trips to Mission Beach. Now our oldest has the address in his iPhone!! Our family has made long lasting friendships with the families and our children have formed friendships with the children that travel to Mission each summer. We have watched a generation grow up!! With the grass right out in front, we enjoy playing soccer, frisbee, bocce ball and Kan Jam. A patio swing and retractable awning are perfect for relaxing and taking in all the activities and beautiful view of the bay. We also enjoy the short walk to the beach for some fun in the water and sand. We always stop by Olive Cafe - everything on the menu is great! This is a perfect location for families.

This was our 3rd year at this beautiful bay front property, and looking to stay there for many more to come. We have rented a beach house for 17 yrs now both bay and ocean side. This property is by far my favorite. It has everything you need. Great for families with small kids. It has a grass front for the kids to play with out getting all sandy and just steps from the play area is the sand and water. Best of both worlds . The bay side is so much more family oriented! No pets is great too, no worries for allergy sufferers . Love the master bedroom upstairs. Nice for privacy!

Annual family retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the nicest locations we have stayed in Mission Beach! One of the best things about this location is the grass area for the kids to play on without being in the sand all the time! It's on the bay side so you have fireworks for free every night. We set up a large movie screen on the grass every night at sundown and all the families along the bay would come watch our Disney movies! It was great. We have been staying in San Diego for 17 years now. This next year will be our 3rd time at this location. This is the best yet! Love love it! The house is perfect for families and younger children !
