Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My 4 young adult children and I stayed at this beautiful condo last week and it exceeded our expectations for comfort (the beds were great), cleanliness, and location. It was our first time in San Diego and Mission Beach spoiled us! The condo's location right on the Bay was so peaceful and we felt at home. I personally enjoyed waking up to watch the sunrise in the morning right on the back patio, and hopping a couple of blocks over to see it set in the evening! Cyndi was so friendly and made us feel comfortable. She was easy to reach with questions and gave us the first impression of how nice people are in Mission Beach! Being within walking distance of beaches, shopping and great food was wonderful. I would definitely recommend this condo to others and look forward to returning in the future, as there are so many more places to explore than could be done in a week's time.

Perfect Family vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family of four (kids age 7 and 8) had an absolutely fantastic time at this property! The description was spot-on. The location was amazing with the bay right outside the patio door and the ocean front just a few blocks away. The kids loved renting kayaks, paddle boards, etc. right on the bay. The property manager was always available whenever we had a question. She was so helpful and easy to work with. The unit was very clean and organized. It felt like home away from home. We took a few days to visit some of San Diego's tourist spots but we also made sure to save plenty of time for just relaxing in the sun and playing on the beach right in front of the condo. This was one of our best family vacations yet! I can't wait to return. I would recommend this property to couples, families with children or a girls weekend. Anyone would love it here. You just can't go wrong on Mission Beach...

Owner's Response: Hello there Carolyn, It was a pleasure to have you and your family come stay. Your family really embraced the reason to come with a family to San Diego and the beach. Playing out front on the beach, laughing, and just spending quality time with your family is the best part of the stay. Plus you had all the great visits to San Diego's other attractions. We appreciate your choosing our rental and would love and be honored to have you all back anytime. Your family is the reason, we enjoy this business over and over and over. Best to you Cyndi

What A Gem!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying in this great little spot on Mission Bay. The location is perfect as it is convenient to grocery stores, restaurants, and the beach is just right across the street! And, it's all within walking distance. Everything is well appointed from linens to kitchen appliances. There are beach towels, chairs and beach toys for enjoying the bay, which is right outside of the unit. And what a beautiful bay! There are sailboats, an occasional jet ski and rowing teams that visit frequently. We watched the sun come up over the mountains in the morning and the fireworks from Sea World at night right from the living room. Cyndi provided lists of things to do and where to eat and was easy to get in touch with while we were there. If you want a great vacation on the bay, this is THE rental. From the comfort, the views and the location, you can't find a better spot. Oh, and did I mention the weather in San Diego? It is so nice that any time of the year is perfect for a stay at Vacation by the Bay. Thanks for everything Cyndi and we'll see you again next year.

We are blessed to have such lovely guests such as yourselves and we look forward to having you both back next fall. Having your time here to be everything you want is the best thank you of all. See you next fall. Best Regards Cyndi

Happy Minnesotans!

  • 5 of 5

We were planning a family vacation and wanted to feel more "at home" in a condo instead of a hotel. This condo was PERFECT!!! Cynthia was awesome, super sweet! We have a 6 year old and 4 year old and they LOVED the beach. They played in the sand and searched for shells every morning and evening (Cynthia had toys there for them so we didn't have to bring any!). It was also very clean and had everything you needed! It was a pretty quiet place also! The ocean was just a few blocks away and we walked there most evenings and have a beach day the day before we left. Mission Beach was the perfect place for our family! We would HIGHLY recommend this place to anyone! We would also love to come back and visit! Thank you Cynthia for a fabulous vacation!

We needed 4 bedrooms and Cyndi recommended renting the Sanderling and Kingfisher that are connected and it was a wonderful spot for our family to celebrate a big birthday for me! Cyndi was there to greet us and ran us through the units and quickly responded when we couldn't access the wireless internet. The condos are as lovely and welcoming as they are in the pictures! We loved having the view of the bay right outside our windows and when we weren't on the go were sitting on the is also much quieter than being in the ocean side! I was a little concerned about being there during 4th of July week knowing it would be crazy on the ocean boardwalk, but you'd never have known it where we were! Lots of families and a great place to be! The ocean is only a couple of blocks away and it was nice to hit the beach so easily! Thank you, Cyndi, for the care you take of your rentals and for helping to make this such a memorable vacation for us! I'd definitely recommend these condos for anyone wanting to visit San Diego and want to be near the ocean.

The Kingfisher was the perfect vacation spot for our Wisconsin family of five. It was bright, clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the patio on the bay for our early morning coffee and conversation with local people and their pets, afternoon energy with runners, walker, and skateboarders and quiet evenings where we could watch the Sea World fireworks from a distance. Our three teenage children had an excellent time searching for crabs, shells, and sand dollars, skateboarding, boogie boarding in the big Pacific waves and just "chillin" in our rental. We all loved the easy day trips to the San Diego Zoo, Alpine's Outlet Mall, Little Italy (Mimmo's Restaurant), Coronado Island, La Jolla, and our favorite place, Old Town (Le Patio Restaurant and The Tile Shop were really fun). Our host Cyndi was very friendly and prompt with her responses and the return of our full security deposit. We have already started saving our pennies for our next visit!

Many seasoned vacationers prefer the bayside to the ocean front for its quieter nature and easier access for families with small children to play right out front of your patio.

This beautifully remodeled two bedroom, beach and waterfront rental, called The Kingfisher, is unique in that it is surrounded by water with both the Bay just out your front door and the ocean just steps away to the west. There are miles and miles of gorgeous sandy beaches for exploring, strolling, sitting and playing at for your pleasure. We are famous for our beaches, our culture, our diverse restaurants, San Diego Zoo, proximity to Mexico, outdoor activities, and our natural beauty as a city. There are world class golfing, fishing, sailing, museums and theater all through out the year. We are a leading area for conventions and attract many corporations which hold their annual meetings at our downtown convention center.

Other Activities: Rowing

Golf: We are located near the world class greens of Torrey Pines, just minutes away for your golfing adventure.

There are also other golf choices nearby too.
