Mission Beach Condo Rental Photos and Description

Beach Front -Ground level, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8) A/C - Parking for SUV

Absolutely BEST location on the quieter side of Mission Beach - Sail Bay. Beach and water front ground level with a 180 degree undisturbed lake-like water view. Very quiet, small building, right on the Sand with Private Beach. Across the street from the Ocean, enjoy this expansive ocean bay for a multitude of water sports including swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding, and sailing. Rentals available at a nearby aquatic center within walking distance.

Architecturally expresses Old World Charm. Gorgeous Italian Villa style. Un-crowded area. Very quiet neighborhood. Built in 2007 with upscale features and finishes throughout. This is a ground level property and all one level with private ground level patio.

This spacious property has stone floors, granite kitchen counter tops, stainless steel appliances, 4 large flat screen televisions, Wi-Fi, gas fireplace, washer/dryer, private ground level patio with your own barbecue, private garage for one car and parking for one additional large SUV. This property also has A/C. Very few properties in Mission Beach have air conditioning. We have beach towels, beach chairs, and a box of sand toys for your use.

Daily gym membership at a 5 Star Resort just 1 block away is available - Gym, Sauna, Steam Room, Whirlpool

Two Mississippi Stern Wheelers with and without entertainment, plow the Bay regularly. The view from their top decks, especially in the evening, with the glistening lights all along the shore, will prove to be unforgettable. The dock is just 1 block away.

By car or bus, you can visit the World Famous San Diego Zoo, the Wild Animal Park (replica of an African Safari), Sea World (5 minutes away), Lego Land, and the San Diego Bay Waterfront. Take a Big Bay Excursion Tour or visit docked, present-day military battleships, even the World War II Aircraft Carrier 'Midway' can be viewed. The 'Star of India', a historic square rigged Sailing Ship is part of a very interesting Maritime Museum, the center of which is the old Ferry Boat 'Berkeley', which commuted for countless years on San Francisco Bay, before replaced by the Bay Bridge. Balboa Park, created in beautiful Baroque Architectural Style, houses a dozen museums and an I-Max Movie Theater. Most attractions are about 15 minutes from Villa Italia.

Mexico, representing a 'different world' just lies 20 miles to the South. It, too, is worth at least a day trip.

Enjoy views from all floor to ceiling windows and doors facing this expansive beach and Sail Bay. You will see sail boats, kayaks, and paddle boarders enjoying this huge ocean bay. It is so wonderful to be right on the beach, water front with spectacular views to enjoy from the time you wake up until you retire at night. Even the night time view is special with lights reflecting on the bay.

The ocean side is about 80 steps from this bay front beach location and offers other water sports including surfing and boogie boarding. Walk, jog or bike for miles on the flat beach or boardwalk on both sides of this narrow peninsula which is truly a recreation paradise.

Villa italia is ground level and all one level...there are no stairs. Enjoy one king in the master suite (with full beach and bay views), one queen bedroom, and two twins. We have two twin sleeper chairs ideal for 2 add'l children.

The property is spacious with abundant seating in the living room and dining room. It is well cared for, well equipped, and clean.

Enjoy your private patio with table and chairs and BBQ. Patio gate opens onto the sandy beach. This is a private beach area due to the boardwalk curving away from the building in this area opening this wonderful beach just off your patio for your use.

We have beach chairs, beach towels, and a box of sand toys for your use.

All linens are included and the kitchen is nicely equipped. All you need is your personal belongings and you have a beach home away from home.

Keywords: Spacious condo, feels like a home, new, on quiet beach yet close to everything

Why Shirley Rast (Shirl) chose Mission Beach

One of the very nicest properties in all of Mission Beach was created here. The front of this Architectural Masterpiece sets right on the beach on Sail Bay.

Enjoy expansive views of this Pacific Ocean Bay with spectacular panoramic views. Wonderful water and land sports are just outside your door step. This is a beautiful connection to the beach and water. This is a very narrow part of the peninsula so wonderful to be able to walk across the street and visit the Pacific Ocean. It is about a 2 minute walk! Best of both worlds....enjoy the ocean bay and the ocean which are both very close to each other! This property is very nicely furnished, well cared for, well equipped, and very clean. Much attention has been paid to details to make our guests very comfortable.

This property has all the amenities to make this a comfortable beach home away from home. The amenities include a gas BBQ on your private deck, 4 flat screen televisions, Wi-Fi, I-Phone/I-Pod stereo, gas fireplace, garage for one car with an additional spot next to garage that accommodates the largest SUV, full size washer and dryer, a/c, stone floors, granite kitchen counter tops, and built-in stainless steel appliances.

You step off your private ground level patio onto the sand. The boardwalk curves away from the building, offering you a sandy beach just in front of your private patio. Others enjoying the beach are on the other side of the boardwalk so not near your patio....very unique.

What makes this condo unique

Location, location, location. This is the ultimate beach location in Mission Beach. You have the quietness of the bay side of Mission Beach with the wide expansive huge bay in front of you for all the water sports you can imagine. Then just 80 steps across the street to the west is the Pacific Ocean. This is north Mission Beach - very close to restaurants and shops. But, you will find that you want to stay here because this view is hard to find in any restaurant. The building is quiet as well as the neighborhood. It really is the perfect beach experience!

We thoroughly enjoyed and were pleased with our stay at Villa Italia. Obviously the setting is beautiful, but we also found the Villa to be well appointed, clean, and it adequately housed the nine adult occupants we were allowed. The property manager was accommodating, accessible, and she addressed the minor issues or recommendations we had. The contract and instructions were clear and we experienced no surprises, but we did confirmed the parking situation is a challenge; especially if the visit requires the maximum allotted two vehicles. It is wonderful accommodations and we wouldn't hesitate to come back .

Beautiful villa, beautiful view

  • 5 of 5
On December 9th, we rented the entire second floor for a week with family and friends, a group of seven people. We enjoyed our stay immensely and would gladly return.

The building is quite new and is architecturally stunning. It is located directly right at the beach of Sail Bay, and a short two blocks away from the ocean. The view from the veranda is stunning, especially at sunset when the sun is reflected in the windows of the homes on the other side of the bay.

The living room is comfortable, with sofas and chairs, big screen TV, fireplace, and lots of books left by previous occupants, even a few in German.

The master suite is enormous and very comfortable, especially with its attached bathroom. Other bedrooms come in various sizes with conveniently located bathrooms. We found our beds to be quite comfortable.

The open kitchen and living room along with the big dining table, made entertaining a breeze. We used the gas barbeque on the veranda a number of times.

The garage was the only downside. It was a tight squeeze for our minivan and rental car, but would probably be fine for two small cars. The entrance to the garage is located on a lane at the side of the house, and the angle to get the vehicles pointed into the garage required a bit of back and forth.

The location was very convenient, right off Mission Boulevard. There were lots of little shops and restaurants nearby, and supermarkets and a Trader Joe's within about a five minute drive.

Shirley came by a few times to chat with us, and took good care of our group. All in all, we couldn't have been happier.

Villa Italia

  • 5 of 5
Our time at Villa Italia was wonderful. Shirley Rast met with us and kept in close contact to ensure we had everything we needed and enjoyed our stay. Her attention to our needs was, in my opinion, above and beyond what I would expect from a VRBO property, she's really an asset. The property was clean and well cared for. Since it is a condo, there is noise from the unit upstairs, as the deck is above the family room and master bedroom, however, we spoke with tenants both weeks and this wasn't an issue, just a nuisance. If we go back to San Diego, we'll stay at this property again, it was great.

Owner's Response: It was certainly a pleasure working with you, Paul, and I am so glad you enjoyed the property so much and want to return. We rent to families and not for parties or functions. It sounds like we had a family of early risers on the second floor from the east coast gathering on the patio in the early morning. I am glad it all worked out and really look forward to working with you again when your travels bring you back our way!

I appreciate your compliments as I always strive to provide the best service I can. I am behind the scenes and step in whenever my guests need something and respond quickly to any questions or concerns. I am just a phone call, text, or e-mail away! I care about your vacation, and really want you to enjoy your stay! Thank you again for choosing the Villa Italia. All the Best, Shirley

What a fabulous villa! We arrived unsure what to expect & the villa far exceeded all of our expectations. It is spacious, beautifully kept & is exactly as depicted in the photographs. The location is simply stunning - the views of the bay are wonderful. We had a wonderful holiday & will definitely be returning.

We had a wonderful time. This was the most beautiful place on the beach. We stayed in the 3 bedroom lower level. We could not have asked for more. LOVED everything about the place. It was the perfect location for walking. We were able to walk anywhere we needed to. There were 4 adults that stayed and we really just needed a break and relaxation. That is exactly what we got. Thank you Shirley!!! We will definately stay there again.

A Perfect Week

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed at Villa Italia on the bayside of Mission Beach and it was everything Shirley said it would be and more. Shirley handled everything very professionally and made us feel as if we were old friends. The condo was beautiful, the location perfect and the week went way too fast! The only thing that would have made it better was if we were there for two weeks instead of one. Can't wait to do it, again!

This property is just across the bay from Sea World. Enjoy the firework display at night from your patio in the summer and Saturday nights in the off season. This location is very close to all that San Diego has to offer. The city of San Diego is about 15 minutes from you as well as the airport, Old Town, and the world famous San Diego zoo.

San Diego is a series of beach towns, but very important to stay close to San Diego for convenience to connect to all of these attractions. If you choose something far away such as Carlsbad or Oceanside, you end up being about 30 miles north and much traffic between there and San Diego.....This is a prime spot. Plus this flat peninsula offers such a great recreation area for your vacation!

Notes:
This is ground level and all one level. You will walk off your patio onto the sandy beach with huge Sail Bay (Pacific Ocean Cove) unfolding in front of you. The miles of boardwalk usually run right in front of the buildings facing the water and beach, however, in this area, your patio extends right on the sand and the boardwalk is away from your patio. It allows for a 'private beach area' in front of this property. Sail Bay is a fabulous water sport arena. Kayak, paddle board, and sail right in front of this property. If you want to experience the ocean side, just walk 50 steps to the west and there you are. This is the quiet side of Mission Beach with very close access to the ocean side. this is truly the best of both worlds.....You are also very close to restaurants and shops....enjoy the miles of flat boardwalk on the bay and ocean side. You can walk, skateboard, roller blade, jog or bike along the beach on both sides of the Mission Beach peninsula....a recreation paradise.
