This is a prime location to stay in the Mission Beach/Bay area; 1/2 a block to the Bay and 1 1/2 blocks to Mission Beach. Nice local shops and diners everywhere. Truely felt the warmth of the sun and the locals. The apartment was nicely appointed and for the most part clean. The owner was extremely nice and willing to assist with shipping a forgotten item... which was most appreciated. It took us a bit to figure out parking - here is what we found - there is a womens clinic a block down the alley. They charge $5 per day or over night, when there are no events happening. Only once in our 5 day stay was the building in use. So parking was a snap - just fill out the info on the envelope, put your money in it and drop it in the slot. Having found this parking we would gladly stay at this location again. AND, the price for the lodging was definately fair. Thanks for everything Ed! We had a great stay.
