Calina is a Native San Diegan, and Bill arrived in San Diego with the Navy in 1975. We married in 1977, and vowed to someday move to the Beach. We loved taking long walks on the bay or beach and watching gorgeous sunsets. We built our dream home in North Mission Beach in 2002 and built the first floor as an apartment for Calina’s parents. We made sure that Mom and Dad’s place had all the same modern conveniences as we had upstairs. When Mom and Dad decided to move further inland, we converted the apartment to a Vacation Rental. 'Mission Bay Hideaway', is the newest, cleanest and nicest apartment in Mission Bay. Since then, we have had the pleasure of hosting hundreds of families, from all over the world, to enjoy wonderful vacations in Mom and Dad’s apartment. Bill & Calina, San Diego, CA

Our Mission Bay Hideaway, in North Mission Bay, affords the vacationer all the best of the San Diego Beach and Bay atmosphere. Virtually everything is within a very short walking distance: the beach and bay with every conceivable water sport, marinas, bicycle paths, children’s playground, dozens of excellent restaurants and night clubs, lots of shops, a modern supermarket, internet café, local library, Post Office, Metro Bus Stop, and an amusement park and combination gym, indoor pool and wavehouse recreation facility. Most nights of the year, you can watch the evening fireworks from Sea World, a few miles away. Most other attractions in and around San Diego are just a short drive away.
We take great pains to ensure our Hideaway is one of the cleanest and best maintained properties in the area. Saltillo tile floors and throw rugs help to keep the beach and bay sand from gaining a foothold and the central vacuum makes cleanup easy. Purified water from a whole-house system eliminates the need to procure bottled water or ice.
Our Fenced In Front Yard is unique to this neighborhood, with very high trees and flowered vines, providing significant privacy for the dining area.
The side parking area provides room for storage of bikes, jetskis, rafts, boogie boards, etc. and can also be used for parking a small vehicle in tandem.
Our family which included 2 small boys aged 3 and 4 years stayed at the Mission Bay Hideway for one week in January, 2009. Bill and Calina were excellent hosts. They were very friendly and helpful. The aprtment is very well laid out, comfortable, and a great place to stay. It is steps in either direction to the Bay or the Ocean and very close to Sea World and the sights and sounds of San Diego. Our children did not want to leave when we had to go and refer to it as our San Diego home. Will will go back again and highly recommend the Mission Bay Hideaway for anyone looking to stay in the San Diego area.

When I first came across this rental I was slightly hesitant about owners residing upstairs, you would never even know they were there, but they were available if you had a problem. Gave us an over veiw of where things were, how to operate garbage disposal etc and were gone.
Unit is very clean & neat, close to everything. The photos in listing are very accurate, no suprises. What you see in photos is what you get.
Only downside is parking is very tight, my husband decided to upgrade his car rental to a Lincoln town car...very tight to park, so if you can make do with a full size car like the size of an Impala or smaller you will be fine.
After long days of sight seeing it was a pleasure to come back here, grill some dinner, throw some clothes in the washer & sit outside & relax with a glass of wine. Oh that was a huge plus not to come home with a suitcase full of dirty clothes.
This unit is excellent and I would not hesitate to recommend to family & friends. I would not hesitate to rent again on my next visit.
Bill shame on me for not writing a review sooner. I believe we hooked up with you in 2010. You have a great location and have a Class 1 operation. Your place has always been clean and neat with most everything needed except groceries. Parking has never been a problem once you get the hang of it even this year when we had a surprise upgrade to an SUV. We had a great time visiting my brother and his family for Christmas. We went to the Parade of Ships and the Dana Point light display which was something new this year. We highly recommend. As always we had a great time at your place with the nice short walk to the beach. The weather was perfect and being on the beach Christmas morning was a dream come true. Well as always all wonderful things come to an end but only for a short period. We will see hopefully sooner than later.
My family of 4 stayed here for a Thanksgiving getaway. The rental was clean, is in a GREAT location, and had everything we needed to enjoy our four day stay. Bill was very helpful and answered any questions we had. We enjoyed the kayak and grilling on the cute patio. It's steps to the beach on one side, and steps to the bay on the other…10 minute walk to all the great shops and breakfast spots Mission Beach has to offer too. Thanks for a great stay! We will definitely be back.
This property has an amazing location right in the center of Mission Bay. The bay is within sight, and the Pacific Ocean is across the street less than a block away. We had a rental car, which I think was necessary to our travels to such places as the Zoo and Balboa Park, Botanical Gardens, and downtown. As for the space, it was very clean and had all the amenities of a house rental. We had friends stay one night and there was plenty of space to entertain and accomodate them. The owners are very nice and personable. There are no negatives I can give, even if I were to be nit-picky.
My two kids and I chose to visit San Diego at the last minute for a long weekend. We had never been to San Diego and only knew we wanted to be near the beach and we didn't want to rent a car. Mission Bay Hideaway was the perfect option! It is located between Mission Bay and the Pacific Ocean. There were great cafes & restaurant options nearby and the grocery store was close. The apartment itself was very clean and in a quiet area nicely positioned off the main street but a stones throw to the bay. We utilized the transit system, the nearest stop being a minute or two away, to take a little trip up to La Jolla and to get to Belmont park. The bikes that were available would have made it even easier to get around had my kids been a little older. But the kids did utilize the boogie boards and sand toys and I appreciated the beach chair. I can't say enough good things about Mission Bay Hideaway! The owners were accommodating, the apartment clean and homey, the area safe and close to many attractions. It was relaxing and beautiful and I would totally stay there again!
We arrived on a Tuesday and stayed until Saturday. The place was clean, nice, and in a wonderful location in Mission Beach. Closer to the bay side, the street is quiet. The hustle, noise, and college age drama of the beach was absent. We were literally steps from walking along the bay with our coffee in the morning. We could be on the beach walk in two blocks.
Off street parking space is a huge plus (Toyota Corolla fit fine), and the owners are very nice and responsive. Bikes, kayak, beach toys all available. Outdoor grill on patio. Ralph's grocery 8 blocks away so we were stocked in a couple of hours for the week. Kitchen is fine and well appointed with pots and pans.
We would recommend to anyone.
Steps to the Pacific Ocean on the West and Mission Bay on the East. Short Walk to numerous restaurants and attractions including Childrens' Playground, Olympic Pool, Amusement Park & Physical Fitness Center.
