We like to think we attract vacationers who appreciate receiving the exact rental that is advertised on our websites and desire a well maintained vacation home or rental that much care has been taken to provide. In return, appreciate and care for the rentals during their stay.

The environment we provide and the bayside in Mission Beach is perfect for low key vacationers, who want an amazing location on the waterfront and coast.

Why Cynthia chose Mission Beach

Location in Mission Beach is the key to the perfect beach experience.

If you are looking for a quieter experience, the bayside beach is the best choice. But you can easily walk across to the ocean front and experience the ocean and its glory. When you want to shut down the excitement and noise of the ocean front, you can come home to the bayside.

What makes this condo unique

1. On site owner/manager

2. Waterfront so you never have to leave the beach

3. Restaurants and cafes nearby

4. A well managed and cared for, vacation rental

5. Personal Service from the reservation process to greeting you upon your arrival

Review Submitted May 3, 2011 Date of Stay March 31, 2011

First of all Mission Beach is an absolutely lovely place for a vacation and we really found a great place to stay in this apartment on the bayside. The location was perfect, with a great view of the bay and the boardwalk/beach right outside the patio. We found it better to stay on the bayside than the oceanside because you got a little bit more privacy, it's very busy on the oceanside boardwalk. It' s only like a 300 ft walk to get to the beach on the oceanside. The apartment was well planned and nicely furnished and also very clean and in good condition. The location is great, in a quiet part of Mission Beach but with only a short walk to different restaurants and shops. The owner, Cynthia, was very friendly and provided all the service you could ask for! We would absolutely recommend this to anyone looking for a one bedroom in Mission Beach, in our opinion it can't get much better. When we go back to Mission Beach we will definately contact Cyntha first and try to get one of the places she manages, in the best location in Mission beach! /Martin & Emma

We are blessed to have an amazing location and the ability to provide great rentals at great prices too. In the 20 years of my business, I have met many wonderful and interesting vacationers. I look forward to many more years of meeting more people just like this couple to add richness to my life and work. Kindest regards to you both! Come again soon.

We are a retired professional couple staying at the Dunlin for the third time. We agree with the positive comments from previous reviews so there is not much point in repeating the details other than to reinforce that the property is as described. It is comfortable,well stocked,very clean and in a great location. Above all Cindi is great to deal with. She is kind, helpful and available without being interfering. Highly recommended.

Mission Beach Charmer Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at this lovely vacation rental for two weeks in August. We were delighted with the property, location and owner. The listing is completely accurate and even better upon arrival. This clean, well-maintained dwelling is so delightful. The owner was most helpful with any questions we had and gave great recommendations for activities, shopping, restaurants, etc. Everything that you could need is available in this rental. We enjoyed Mission Beach, Old Town, and Seaport Village while we were there which are all very close to this rental. We would recommend this rental to our friends and families for sure! (Sea World is also very close - enjoyed nightly fire works from the patio)

Great place to stay - Central location - Nice Accomodations!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed a week at the Dunlin. It was exactly what we were looking for in a vacation rental property! The location is perfect. The patio looks right out onto Mission Bay. You are away from the hustle and bustle of the beach side, yet it only takes a few minutes to walk across Mission Blvd. if you want to make your away over to the ocean/beach side. We did a lot of sight-seeing and it only took us 10 - 15 minutes to drive anywhere within the San Diego area. If you stay, you have to make the 10 minute walk down the bay and go to The Mission restaurant. My favorite in San Diego for both breakfast and lunch.

The rental itself was totally clean and comfortable. Cyndi and her husband are so friendly and make you feel very welcome. Everything you could possibly need for your stay is provided. Fully stocked kitchen, a grill on the back patio, beach towels and chairs. We felt like we were at home. I would highly recommend staying here!

Fun in Feb

  • 5 of 5

My teenaged kids and I had a great time in this rental. Cyndi was very helpful and a gracious host. We enjoyed the beautiful mornings on the patio eating our breakfast and BBQing our dinners at night. Everything felt like it was close by and it was great to have a parking spot. I think that is a must if you have a car and are planning on staying in Mission Beach. The cooler and chairs made our trips to the beach that much more enjoyable. I would definitely recommend this place and hope to return myself sometime.

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I had a great time in this fun area of San Diego. There are bars, restaurants,stores and the beach just minutes from the door. We also enjoyed Trader Joes and some of the fun beach shops minutes from the condo. Lots of activity up and down the boardwalk.Great place to walk and see the beautiful scenery. We didn't want to leave. Loved having breakfast and cocktail hour on the patio. Great view!

We had a car and did lots of sightseeing to the Safari Park, Zoo, Padres game, Escondido, Carlsbad, La Jolla(see the harbor seals up close),Del Mar and much more. The time went too fast. Upon our arrival, Cynthia is there to give a big hug! I would say that Cynthia has all the things someone would need except a cooler for the beach(we made do). I would suggest a guest book, so your guests can put ideas of restaurants and places to see. I hope to be back in the near future! Thanks, Cynthia for making our trip to San Diego enjoyable and relaxing.

This place is even better than it looks. Sitting on the patio in the warm sun drinking our morning coffee soothed our snow weary bones. The condo was well equipped,even a discount card for the local grocery store. Cynthia, the owner, couldn't have been more helpful.

The area offers unlimited things to do. The big beach is a 2 minute walk.There are walking and biking paths everywhere. The city itself is right over the bridge. I would recommend any of Cynthia's properties to anyone.
