We've been renting once a year in Mission Beach for 15 years. We like to find the right place and stick with it. Well, we found it! 4 houses from the sand, and the court/street is in the perfect position to access all things "Mission Beach". The photos on the site are very accurate--very charming indeed. The Patio is open & sunny, yet feels large and private, our kids really enjoyed the playhouse, and the neighbors are friendly. The bonus was the large master bedroom, and we loved the one story house with no one on top of you--there are not many one stories on the larger lots left. The home is cozy, and the owner clearly takes pride as it is very clean and well appointed--we've rented a lot of places. We had everything we needed and more. As far as activities: we rented bikes, went on walks, played on the beach, swam in the ocean, watched sunsets, walked to restaurants, the kids boogie boarded. No doubt we will be back. P.S. Great communication with the owner, which is huge.
