Why Rebecca Gerhardt chose Mission Beach

After spending five + years looking for a vacation home in north Mission Beach, the moment we walked into our cottage we knew our search was over. There is room to seat people inside as well as outside for meals and entertaining. The private patio off the kitchen is where we spend our quiet hours with a beautiful Bougainvillea, a water feature, gas grill and fire pit. We walk to the boardwalk and the ocean within seconds and walk or bike to quality restaurants when we need a break from cooking in our chef’s kitchen.

There is a bathroom for each of the two bedrooms. The main floor bedroom has a queen bed with room for two twin camp beds. The upstairs bedroom with a king bed has a covered deck where our grandchildren love to sleep in the available two twin beds.

We spent many hours enhancing the décor and furnishing for our cottage so that it is pleasant to be inside as well as outside.

We hope you enjoy our Mission Beach cottage as much as we do.

I'm no Goldilocks but this cottage was just right!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was well maintained, clean and cool! The air-conditioning units not only provided relief from the mid day heat, but also kept it quiet at night. This was a perfect location in north Mission Beach. Steps to the sand and close enough to walk to many different restaurants, shops and bars. The bikes were a terrific addition as we normally need to rent. And they had attached baskets to allow for grocery store runs. Rebecca greeted us on arrival. She walked me through all the amenities, gave full instructions on how to use them and how to reach her if necessary. The cottage was just as pictured, quaint and cozy for me and my husband. I think 4 people would be just as comfortable. Don't expect to park a car in the garage. It is only big enough for a golf cart or the bikes. Leave it at home if possible, we never needed it!

Truly a dream beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

Our two small families (8 of us in total) rented this cottage in mid July as a place to relax, connect and recharge. Based on the photos provided, and previous reviews, we felt quite confident that this home would meet our expectations. Lucky for us, all of our expectations were very much exceeded!

The beach cottage is designed, decorated and stocked so thoughtfully that we truly felt as though we were not renting, but borrowing a friend's amazing home for a glorious two weeks. Beautiful bathrooms, showers (fully stocked with beautiful soaps, shampoos etc), bedrooms, kitchen, living room all impeccably clean, and beautifully decorated. Handy garage for storing lots of great beach equipment and comfy beach cruisers. Coded entry on all doors left us feeling not only secure, but gave us the ultimate convenience of not having to carry (and possibly losing) a key!

We made use of all sleeping options (this included two preteens sleeping on the covered patio, with the provided air mattresses for the duration of our stay...which they found to be the coolest thing..San Diego..of course the weather was perfect), and the 8 of us slept quite comfortably. The king size bed on the upper level is infinitely comfortable, and the big cozy sectional downstairs was perfect for laid back movie nights, after long sunny beach days.

In the kitchen we found everything necessary for cooking big family meals, which we would then enjoy on the beautiful patio (very private compared to most nearby properties). Following this, we typically sat out by the natural gas fire pit, and relaxed until bed.

The cottage is conveniently situated only steps from the ocean (walk is less than one minute) Honestly this cottage has so many amazing features and amenities..just so well thought out..that I feel there are too many to list in this review. Anything we needed, thought we needed, may have needed but didn't, was there. I thought to myself many times, that if I were the owner (wishful thinking..hah) I don't think I could bare to rent it.

Communication was also a breeze. Our main contact for the rental, Rebecca, was extremely friendly and accommodating!

We would absolutely rent this cottage again!

Beautiful and comfortable home!

  • 5 of 5

This house was a gem! The patio with the fire pit was a wonderful addition. We were so close to the beach and just a few minutes walk to many great restaurants. I would 100% come back!!!
