Love this place!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the 3-bdrm apartment over Christmas. This was such a great place! The furnishings are wonderful, comfortable beds, etc. There wasn't anything that we lacked. It is such a great location. If you have kids of any age, they will love it. So many beach toys, etc., included with the rental. And even if you are all adults, it is still the perfect get away. You can watch all the activities on the beach and boardwalk, all from the comfort of the deck, and never get your feet sandy if you don't want to. There are many stores and restaurants close by. And Skyler and the employees in the stores are awesome! There is so much going on during the day, but it quiets right down at night and is very peaceful. I would recommend though that if you rent a bike, you return it to the store at night and then pick it back up the next day if you want it for several days. My son kept a bike, as he wanted to ride it later at night. He had it locked and behind a gate, which was also behind a locked gate, and it still got stolen. That was very disappointing and in hindsight, he should have turned the bike back in. But it was just a small blip on a wonderful week at The Hamels Castle!

Love The Castle

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for everyone. Our group included an infant, toddler, 10 year olds, parents and grandparents. The location was perfect. Having to run back 'home' for diaper changes was convenient as we were super close to Belmont, the wave house, a market, bars & restaurants. The house was great! Noise was not an issue. We slept better at the castle than we do at home. We were supplied with everything we needed and more. It was great to be able to do a quick load of laundry whenever needed or to grab a boogie board and head to the beach. It was so nice to be able to sit on the balcony with the baby and listen to music while grilling & watch the kids play with their grandparents on the beach. The castle has televisions in every room (bathroom included) which made the kids ecstatic. We each brought individual devices and were able to access wifi throughout our stay without issue. Downstairs gave surprisingly great bike rental discounts. We have zero complaints. Our stay was fantastic. We started planning our next visit the minute we had to drive away.

Owner's Response: Dear Sarah and Family, Thank you so much for your lovely review. I am glad to hear you and your family had a great experience in the castle, and I couldn't have asked for a better family to be there when the dishwasher started acting out. Although it seems to be a minor inconvenience, I really appreciated your understanding and the way you dealt with the issue. After the technical support visit, we ended up buying a new dishwasher for the unit. You are welcome to our place at anytime :)

Best beach front property in Mission Beach.

  • 5 of 5

This property has absolutely everything you could possibly need for a relaxing beach vacation. Claudia has thought of every detail. The beds are super comfy. The kitchen is well equipped, bar-b-que works great. Steps to the beach. Secure and private deck. Lots to see and do in the daytime. Left our sliding doors open at night to hear the sound of the waves hitting the beach, lovely way to fall asleep. Had a problem with the wi-fi and Claudia responded immediately and came in person to fix it. We had five people using the wi-fi and we found that if you leave the front door open, the signal is strong and uninterrupted. Wi-fi still works with the door closed, just not as strong a signal.

Owner's Response: Dear T.Family, I appreciate your positive feedback and I am happy to report that the wi-fii issue may have been resolved since your last stay. I had a computer person staying there and he instructed me to buy a range extender. It's now in place! I hope you consider returning to the location knowing that your 5 computers will be connected just fine. Thank you for being patient with the technical issue.

The location by itself is priceless. The apartment is steps away from the famous Belmont Park, there are retailers downstairs and many shops around, bars, restaurants and much more in the bay area. Downtown San Diego is easy to reach from here (15 minutes by car) and so are most of San Diego's attractions such as Sea World and the San Diego Zoo.

Mission-Beach is a San Diego favorite among locals and visitors alike. It lies between Mission Bay and the Pacific Ocean and has nearly two miles of beautiful white sandy beach. The colorful Boardwalk at Mission Beach runs for three miles ending north of Pacific Beach and is always filled with bicyclists, runners, skateboarders and rollerbladers, and has designated lanes for walking. Bicycles and in-line skates are both available for rent on the Boardwalk right below our Vacation rentals which is located inside a Mission Beach landmark: The Hamels Castle!
