Very pleased with our stay– great location, lovely view, well-appointed condo. At the southern tip of Mission Beach, quiet neighborhood next to the beach, nice view and across the channel from another beach (dog beach) – lovely to have coffee in the morning watching the whale watching boats going out to the ocean.
Within walking distance of the beach and the bay, scenic walks. Can walk to bars/restaurants. Parking is included and there are grills in the courtyard. We cooked several meals, which helped us manage costs, and we had breakfast at the condo (nice coffeemaker & also a French press if you prefer). There’s also a laundry room in the building.
Description was accurate and then some – it exceeded our expectations. Very clean and nice; remodeled bathroom. Property well cared for. I’d definitely recommend this place to others and would enjoy staying here again. Easy to get in with the lockbox, instructions and directions were super clear.
Owners thought of every detail and provide thoughtful items like flashlights if you want to take a walk at night, candles for ambience (electric candles, for safety), suggestions for places in the area. I suggest you read the binder that comes with the rental – grocery store recommendations, restaurants, and instructions for anything in the building/condo. We enjoyed The Olives café for breakfast that was recommended by the owners.
Very comfortable bed and soft fluffy robes. The natural light is great but if you want to sleep in there are blackout shades in the bedroom. The rental comes with 2 bicycles (and helmets) and we enjoyed cycling along the beach. Also boogie boards, which we didn’t use.
Small living room (coach is a pullout) but cleverly laid out – table folds out for a dining table, ottomans can be used as a coffee table. I wasn’t sure if the place would have all the things I’m used to at hotels like an iron/ironing board and hairdryer, but it had everything – even quarters for you to do your first load of laundry on them, detergent, soap, shampoo, sunscreen, beach towels, beach toys, books, board games, movies, cards.
Kitchen comes with most anything you need including seasonings, nice appliances, coffee/creamer and some pantry staples. Even stuff you might want if planning a picnic or taking stuff to the beach. Was a little chilly when we arrived (1st week of Jan) and even tho the building doesn’t have heat, with the space heater it was comfortable. Thanks for the lovely stay!
