a hideaway from the madding crowd...

  • 5 of 5

we were very pleased to find this little known jewel tucked away on mission bay;

this apartment complex overlooks the marina - and is a two minute walk from the shoreline...the beach is a bit wild, the marina is quaint, quiet and picturesque.

the accommodations are more than adequate for two (queen sized bed) & if necessary, a pullout in the living room...full kitchen (but bring your own soap sponges & spices & food...but there are stores galore - sprouts, trader joe's, ralph's & vons...all a stone throw away)! in fact there is every kind of shopping to be had in this locale...

the living room that we enjoyed overlooked the marina...and what a lovely place to relax after a days activities...a short walk to restaurants - & easy

access to highways & parks...a walk to an amusement boardwalk park &

right next to seaworld....this is in a fabulous location!

we found the apartment to be meticulously clean and if ever we needed a thing, daniel, the owner and rick his sidekick were eager to please...

for restaurants try el pescador in la jolla, phils bbq on sports arena blvd.

and the gaslamp quarter downtown!

altogether this was a friendly and great place to stay!

i wholeheartedly recommend it.

Great Location and Cozy Accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent the week here and loved it! It was perfect for us, we wanted something cozy and quite with beautiful views! That is exactly what we got!! The pictures and description are very accurate. Not the most modern house on the bay but it was super clean and had all the amenities we needed.. Loved the raised patio for people watching and met some really nice people also staying there. We booked are return trip for next summer already!

A great time in Mission Beach.

  • 5 of 5

Lido by the Bay is a great tranquil and quiet vacation spot. The apartments are clean and well equipped to cook meals etc. the location is wonderful, close to some great restaurants and best of all the ocean and bay are just steps away. Daniel, the owner, visits the property but never intrudes. Would recommend Lido by the Bay for a great vacation spot.

Location. Location. Location.

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of spending 34 nights at this charming gem. While it may not be updated to all the overcharged other locations Lido by the Bay makes up for it with its walk out your door right onto Mission Bay. Or if you want to go to the beach, just grab those beach chairs provided by Lido and walk across the street. You can walk to several places to eat, the Belmont Park, or just a casual walk in the beach. Lido by th Bay is truly a diamond in the rough.

Property manager Daniel and his assistant Rick are awesome. On the premises daily just to say hello. We are already booked for next year!

Great location and friendly athmosphere

  • 5 of 5

We have spent nine nights here as a family of four and really enjoyed our stay. The owner and his staff were friendly and helpful (e.g. printing out SeaWorld tickets for us). For me it is a plus that they had an office on the spot. They emphasize keeping quiet after 10pm which was a plus for us so this is not a party place.

The apartment was not luxury and a bit small for 2 adult and 2 kids, but still quite OK for the price. Also note that there is no A/C installed, but air vents.

A big plus is that there were children sand toys, beach chairs,a beach umbrella and even a kayak to be used by any of the guests for free. No need to buy and than throw away or rent for such a hefty price.

The location is really great, not just the bay but the ocean side is close as well. Eating breakfast or dinner in the common areas with great view to the bay is really nice. The surrounding area was quiet as well.

New home away from home when visiting daughter.

  • 5 of 5

On our 1st ever trip to San Diego we were pleased to stay here.

Our daughter picked us up here when she wasn't working--other times we took a cab. Comfortable, clean, roomy, short walk to Ocean beach, grocery store & restaurants.
