Overview

South Mission Beach House Rental Photos and Description

Whole House With 5 Bedrooms (Sleeps 17), 4 Full Baths, 2 Kitchens

**Welcome to my lovely beachfront home on Mission Beach. The Big Beach House on Mission Beach is a spacious home with a bit over 4000 square feet. This is my personal home and it is my pleasure to rent to you for your enjoyment. Each guest is hand selected so when you return you have the same expectations met. It is right on the beach and in a spectacular location. Close to bars and live music. We are also in walking distance to Belmont Park, home of the Big Dipper roller coaster!

The house has 5 bedrooms, 4 FULL baths with shower and tub and can sleep up to 17!

The layout is as follows: Downstairs has two bedrooms. One has a set of twin beds and the other has a bunk bed, which is double size. Both have closets and dressers and share a bathroom with tub and shower.

2nd level is the Master bedroom with king bed and En suite bath tub and shower. This is a tub with jacuzzi feature. It is very large suite and has a full patio with a beautiful view of beach. Sunsets are amazing from here! There is also a crib.

Upstairs. 3rd level, again has two twin beds and another ensuite bath with tub and shower.

Downstairs from the third floor (back of the house) is a private hideaway we call it the 'condo' as it has a separate bedroom with a queen bed and ensuite bath with tub and shower. A full kitchen with dish washer, fridge-freezer, washer dryer, dining room /living room, full size futon and a queen size air mattress (in closet). Also has its own entrance/exit but can also be entered from inside of house!

February 2015 we installed all new leather furniture/coffee tables and lamps. It's beautiful!

August 31, 2013 we put in a new kitchen in the main house complete with refrigerator, granite counter tops, new stove, sink, the works!

Recently, we purchased new designer bedding and linens. The house is stocked with towels, linens, blankets and beach towels, shampoo, conditioner, soap and body wash.

We discourage renting to young college students intent on parties and disrupting the neighborhood. We want to respect our neighbors!

Each room is attractive and homey. Located at 2962 Ocean Front Walk, a fully furnished rental property that has become a vacation destination for many travelers. I purchased The Big Beach House at Mission Beach because the area is friendly, safe, close to attractions and part of a village community. My young daughters loved the park, roller coaster, ferris wheel and the safety of this beach area. I invite you to allow me to accommodate your next visit to San Diego. A perfect destination for families and friends, The Big Beach House offers affordable rates and full amenities.

Inside the house, the tile floors are clean and well cared for. Let’s begin with the first floor: A generous living room has brown leather sofa and chair for lounging and watching tv. Curl up by the fire and sit in the adjoining conversation area by the picture window. The main floor dining room boasts an extended wood table that seats 17. The kitchen is large, with granite countertops, new sets of pottery serving 17, new cookware, serving pieces, glassware, oven and microwave, ice making refrigerator, dishwasher and an adjoining laundry room with full capacity washer and dryer.

Moving up to the second floor, we find the gorgeous Master Suite. With a full sliding door, the room offers a romantic view of the ocean. A luxurious stone fireplace, king size bed, leather sectional sofa, dresser unit and television add just the right home touch. Step up into the tiled bathroom with vanity area, separate bath and walk-in closet.

The third floor is a favorite for family visitors. Privacy and charm accentuate this darling room with door to private balcony, twin beds, television and bath.

Above the third floor is the attached 'condo'. This is a home of its own, with a separate bedroom, living area with television, leather sofa/futon chairs, dining room, kitchen, private deck with BBQ, full kitchen with oven, microwave, refrigerator, dishwasher, washer/dryer set, pantry, and private bath. This apartment has its own entry door and offers complete privacy.

Outside, The Big Beach House has an attached garage and 2 carports. Street parking, as well as a lot at the park, is available. A spacious front patio facing the ocean is complete with teak wood dining table, chairs, additional round table with umbrella and BBQ. An outdoor deck with guard rail on the second floor is located just off the master suite. A cute private deck is off the third floor bedroom, and the attached condo has a long wood deck and new barbecue. A short stone wall surrounds the patio, and the gate opens onto the boardwalk. In the garage, you will find bicycles, and beach umbrellas.

In addition to unobstructed views of the ocean and beach, The Big Beach House is convenient to numerous activities and sightseeing areas. Within walking distance: the white sands of the beach with ocean shore just a few yards away. Lifeguards are on duty. Sailboat and fishing boat rentals are nearby. Fishing excursions are also available. Visit Sea World and the San Diego Zoo, all in the area. Take a bike ride around the marina, or relax with a good book on the patio. Take a short walk to the grass park and relax before riding the Belmont roller coaster and ferris wheel.

Order a pizza from Big Kahuna or hop in the car and drive to one of the fantastic restaurants in the Gas Light District. Drive down to the harbor and tour The Midway, stroll through the quaint shops and eat at one of the excellent restaurants. Explore downtown San Diego and then drive over to Old Town. There is no shortage of shopping in San Diego, and Mission Beach offers dive shops and souvenirs. Drive to other beach areas and gather seashells.

Rental rates for The Big Beach House are affordable, and we do everything we can to make your stay enjoyable. Be sure to book early and let us know how we can serve your travel needs. My personal assistant David Britt 323-228-1836 Webaa89@msn.com. manages the bookings for me and is uniquely organized. A perfectionist and the most upbeat man you will ever meet. He will assit you in makeing your dream vacation a reality.

About The Big Beach House

I am the sole owner and my manager is David Britt for The Big House. You can trust him as you can me. We promise to fulfill your needs for the perfect beach holiday. I live in the Los Angeles area and enjoy travel, yoga, and diving. An avid photographer, I enjoy chronicling my dives and worldwide destinations. You can follow my diving and website blog at www.pattyshales.com

Why The Big Beach House chose South Mission Beach

I bought the house and decided on the Mission Beach area for the safe neighborhood, clean clear ocean water, impeccable beaches, and year round enjoyment. We chose the house at 2962 Ocean Front Walk because of its location and family oriented layout. Our family enjoys this area for sporting activities, relaxation and sun. The farmers market is famous in this area.

What makes this house unique

The unique benefits of this home include: 1) location, location, location. 2) the house is located on the beach in an elegant and safe neighborhood. 3) We are near the grassy Belmont Park and 4) The sand. There is a lifeguard on duty in front of the house for the safety of all who play and swim in the water. Also there are fire pits staggered on the beach. 5) We provide 4 beach cruisers to ride on the sidewalk. We think of our visitors as part of the family and do our best to keep the house freshly painted, well stocked and comfortable. New beds, fresh linens, new sets of pottery, cookware and glassware line the cabinets of the spacious kitchen. We want our guests to feel warm and rested in our vacation paradise. My property is your home away from home.

Funky old house, great location

  • 4 of 5

Strange floor plan, very Bohemian 70's decor in a drop dead gorgeous, perfect location on Mission Beach. Well equipped kitchen, huge table seats 14 inside.

There were lots of beach chairs, towels and misc. equipment and bikes, three big refrigerators and two kitchens, comfortable (new) beds and linens. However, for our group of 14, the sleeping arrangements were not the best. We had 4 couples and 6 kids and it really didn't work for us. I'd say 3 couples max. Plus kids. There are plenty of twin bed options. The interior steps and access to the master bathtub are very challenging for anyone with balance or agility issues. As I said, this house is funky. However the front patio was fabulous and we all had a great time.

Family reunions…steps to the beach

  • 4 of 5

We recently rented this house for a family reunion…11 adults, 5 children. The kitchen was fully stocked with dinnerware and appliances. All bedrooms had TVs, and LR had many games, DVDs, books, etc. The best feature, in my opinion, was the huge dining table where we all gathered every night. A large front patio, gated, right on the boardwalk, had enough sturdy deck chairs to sit us all, with 2 large sun umbrellas. There is plenty of outdoor beach equipment including boogie boards, beach toys and towels.

The sleeping capabilities are not quite as advertised, if you are looking to sleep 17. The two fold out couches were broken and not able to be used as beds. The air bed leaked and was not usable. One of the rollaway beds in the garage was so rusted it could not be opened.

The apartment microwave broke on day 2 and we were told that it would not be replaced during our week's stay.

Bring paper goods, as the one provided roll of paper towels (think 16 people), and toilet paper needed to be replaced after a couple of days.

The property manager, David, was very responsive. He thanked me for bringing things to his attention and said he would follow-up on broken/non-usable items.

The location is wonderful, away from the noise and loiterers.

Would we stay there again? Yes, if the beds were fixed and the place actually slept 17 people.

Owner's Response: Dear Pam & Tim. Thank you for your review of Patty's beach house. We really appreciate all comments on the house, positive & negative. The positive means we are meeting expectations. The negative lets us know where to possibly make changes. We really do try to improve on the areas where needed. As I told you in my responses to you, thank you for bringing to our attention items that were nor working, broken, or not up to par. We have since replaced the microwave, there are two in the house, replaced all 4 roll away beds with brand new twin size roll away beds and replaced air mattress. We have also retired the sofa beds. During our busiest time of year, summer, we really rely on our renters comments about what's not working and either replace or try to improve what we can in the short time we have during turn around so all renters can have a positive experience. We do that you come back and stay with us again in the future! Thank you!! David Britt

Party Zone

  • 4 of 5

Not knowing a lot about Mission Beach, I booked the home because it was on the beach on the ocean & it had a lot of space for our family of 7 adults and 1 baby. The home was true to its claim and the surf at the beach made the ability for 3 married couples, 1 grand baby & 1 singleton to enjoy the space and ocean.

Unfortunately, we found that Mission Beach is 90% rentals and packed in with apartments, multi- family dwellings & a huge party place. If you are a party person, then you will love this location. If you are not, I would highly suggest picking a different location. The beds were comfortable but the home is certainly showing it's age, no window coverings on any if the west windows so it gets hot. The patio has the most amazing view

Owner's Response: thank you Shelly very much for the review. the Summer season is filled with people getting to the beach away from the heat! we do have removable shades that can be hung if you would prefer to the view of the ocean. Please do return during the spring and fall when it is more quiet. Love, Patty

Business Conference

  • 5 of 5

There was a group of us that usually stay at the Sheraton where the conference is being held. We decided to think outside the box and found this house. The price we paid was less than what we would have paid at the hotel and we stayed an extra night. The house is furnished and the kitchen has all the tools. The private patio was perfect too. All of the other colleagues were jealous. We have started a new tradition.

Great family getaway

  • 5 of 5

Such a great house! Big enough to accommodate three families (including 4 young children, ages 2-7) & a 40th birthday party. We all had our separate spaces but spent most of our time at the amazing outdoor area overlooking the ocean. You can't get a better view! The house provided all the necessary items for the kids (boosters, cribs, sand toys, high chair, etc.) & adults (bikes, boogie boards...). Location is ideal - so many things to do without even having to get in a car. Can't say enough good things.

Owner's Response: Hi Carin, Thank you so much for the wonderful review! We love hearing from our guests about their stay. Also, we really loved the picture you sent of the kids enjoying themselves on the boardwalk. Please come visit San Diego again. We would love to have you stay at the beach house! Sincerely, David & Patty

In our years at Mission Beach, we have enjoyed collecting shells, photography, bike rides on the boardwalk and around the beach area. Just up the street is the village with ferris wheel and roller coaster. When the village is lit up at night, the opportunity for family fun is endless. A grass park is close by with barbecue grills and delightful people. Sailing, kayaking, Farmers Market, Sea World, and a host of local dance spots complete your vacation.
