Mission Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

You will love the comfort of our beach home. It is a large home (1,775 sf) in a great part of Mission Beach that we bought because of its great location, large floor plan, nice bedrooms, closeness to the bay, the ocean, restaurants and numerous activities.

Tile and wood floors through out. 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, 1 on each floor, provide lots of privacy and make it perfect for several couples or a couple of families. Two families can easily share this house with queen bed on the 1st floor and queen bed and en-suite bathroom on the 3rd floor. The 2nd floor has a bedroom with a full size bed along with an extra long and deep queen pull-out sofa bed in the living room. There are two extra twin beds available in the master suite (full size twin bed best suited for kids, but have been used by adults).

2 car garage a great amenity for the beach as well as a in-home washer and dryer. The entire house was remodeled in September of 2011 including brand new furniture inside and out.

Being so close to the ocean, the bay, restaurants, shopping and every type of water and land sport makes it so comfortable and relaxing. You can walk or ride bikes to nearly anything you may want to do. With the bike and walking paths around the bay and along the beach, there is really no need to take your car out of the garage once you arrive. We provide 5 beach cruisers with locks and there are 2 bike rental shops less than 1 block away.

Have breakfast at The Mission Cafe on Mission Blvd is a must. Or a great morning walk to the historic Crystal Pier and you can enjoy Kono's Cafe for breakfast or lunch. Walk to World Famous, Guava Beach, The Local, the Cabo Beach Cantina for great dinners and watch the sunset. Catamaran Resort and Spa is a short walk away if you want to workout in the gym or want to be pampered.

Golf? Catch a quick 9 holes of golf on the Mission Bay Golf Course (3 miles away) or drive up the coast to the famous Torrey Pines Golf Course (10 miles away, 36 holes on North and South courses and home of 2008 U.S. Open). Riverwalk and Presidio Golf Courses are only a few minutes away.

During the summer, watch the fireworks at Sea World every night from the 3rd floor balcony or sit on the sand on the bay. Visit Humphrey's by the Bay for an outstanding outdoor concert. Jump on the bikes to visit JRDN at Tower 23 - one of the nicest restaurants in the beach area - or Cass St Bar and Grill or The Fishery, or visit any of the great spots on Garnet Ave for shopping and great fun bars / gastropubs / restaurants.

Perfect location for riding your bike along the beach or around the bay, or take a walk and enjoy a sunset. Great front yard for bar-b-ques and just relaxing from a long day of activities.

About Tim & Jann

Tim was born and raised in San Diego, graduating from San Diego State while living in Mission Beach. After living around the country for several years, training for the US National and Olympic Rowing Team he returned to Southern California and S.D., living in Mission Beach and Pacific Beach.

Jann also traveled and lived in many places as well. A native of SF she has always loved San Diego. When she and Tim got married they built a beautiful home in Pacific Beach with views of the ocean and bay but always wanted to live on the water. Our jobs took us to Newport Beach in 2007 but we have always wanted to move back to the San Diego beach life style which is so unique, inviting and relaxing.

Although we travel a lot we always come back to San Diego. This is the home that we plan to retire to someday. Retirement is still a few years away for us, but in the meantime we are happy to offer and share our lovely home to those who love or want to experience living at the beach.

Tim & Jann purchased this house in 2011

Why Tim & Jann chose Mission Beach

When Jann met Tim, he lived in Mission Beach. When she moved to live in San Diego, she loved the beach and the lifestyle. We built a beautiful home in Pacific Beach near Mount Soledad and La Jolla and the beaches.

We moved to Newport Beach for Jann's promotion a few years ago. We enjoy Newport Beach but when we started to talk about where we would like to live when we retire someday, our thoughts immediately turned to returning to and living in Mission Beach and once again enjoy living the beach lifestyle that we loved.

This is the house that we will plan to return to live someday. We love the outdoors and this location definitely provides that. The access from this location to the beach and bay are unsurpassed. The activities of the area are limited only by your energy and imagination. Or simply sit down, relax and enjoy the peace and serenity of the bay, or the energy and activity of the beach. And there really is nothing like a sunset on the Pacific Ocean.....

What makes this house unique

Great location in Mission Beach just steps to the sand. We lived in the house for the first month while we remodeled and loved every minute of it. We have built two homes from the ground up. Jann loves decorating and did a wonderful job decorating this house, again adding to the comfort you will experience in this home.

So many things to do! Mission Bay Sport Center and the Catamaran Resort and Spa are both a short walk away and have every water craft or water toy you could want - sailboat, catamaran, SUP, kayak, jet pack - you name it! The Catamaran Resort and Spa is a full service spa with a great fitness center that looks out onto the Bay. We have provided 5 new beach cruisers and there are two great bike rental shops that are less than 1 block away.

Great access and easy walking distance to restaurants and things to do. World Famous, Nick's at the Beach, Guava Beach Bar and Grill, The Green Flash are all walking distance. The list of restaurants within riding bike distance is too long to list here.

If you have a special event (besides vacationing in our house) - a party , a wedding, a reception, an anniversary party - and need a special place to rent for the occasion, ask Tim about the Garty Family Pavilion at the San Diego Rowing Club for more information.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Last minute rental. Were fortunate to find this house. Large and comfortable and great location. 3 BR's and 3 BA's on 3 floors was perfect for combination of adults and kids. House could just as easily accommodate 3 couples.

Had previously stayed on the beach side of Mission Beach and it was a bit busy and noisy for liking. This house is 2 doors from the Bay which was wonderfully peaceful, but still only 1 block from the ocean, so the beach and ocean were still conveniently close.

Family enjoyed the amenities of the home and the variety of activities mentioned that were available in the area was no exaggeration.

There has obviously been a lot of work put into setting up the house to comfortable for their guests.

Will definitely look forward to visiting here again next year.

Tim & Jann's place is just adorable. We had a wonderful time. It was clean, very well stocked with toys, kitchen items, towels...everything you could need. The bikes were in great shape, and very convenient! We truly enjoyed this home, and cannot wait to go back. Thank you Tim and Jann for a great experience for my family and myself!

This house is absolutely perfect for family vacation. It is spacious and comfortable. It has everything you need to make your stay pleasant and easy. The 5 beach cruisers, beach chairs, plenty of beach towels and beautiful patio are just a few amenities that make this a great vacation rental. The owner is very accessible and nice. He responded to our questions and needs immediately. The location is nice, all the houses around it are well kept and clean! We will definitely stay here again.

Excellent For Teenagers

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful week in Mission Beach with four teenage boys ages 14-17. The house was a great set-up for them to really enjoy each others company. They utilized the main living room area as their gaming station (yes they brought their Game Cube). It was a great rest from all the sun and salt in the end a great choice for them. The bikes that are provided kept them thoroughly entertained, riding the boardwalk, taking the surf board to the beach, or just doing what teenage boys do cruise the BOARDWALK. The outdoor space for reading, BBQ, and smores was also thoroughly enjoyed.

The house is situation between the Bay and the Ocean and provides so many options. The Bay side is great for swimming without the waves of the ocean and has lots of opportunity for sand castle building as well. The Ocean is just a hop, skip and jump away and provides anything you desire. Sun, sand, surf, people watching, food, coffee etc.

The "parents" were also able to enjoy a relaxing vacation because the teenagers had so many options to keep them busy. If you are considering a trip to the beach, I would highly recommend this house.

Ralphs was our go to grocery store, we enjoyed Pizza at the Oceanside Pizzeria. Joes Crab Shack is a must for the crab lovers. Had coffee at both Swell and Buzzed.

Summer 2014

  • 5 of 5

This house really has everything you need for a great stay. Beach Cruisers for the older kids, beach toys for the smaller kids. Awesome location between the bay and beach, walking distance to most restaurants, minutes from sea world, old town and down town. House is very clean, kitchen has everything you need for cooking and grilling. Garage fits 2 cars easily or 1 truck/suv. parking is tight in the entire area but you san say that about most places in CA. fireworks from sea world are easily seen from the bay. House exceeded my expectations and owners were awesome to work with. Highly recommend.

Owner's Response: Thank you Mike and Julie. Glad that you had a great time! All the best, Tim and Jann

Need to add a few more stars....

  • 5 of 5

We came here with a large group (6 adults and 4 kids) and had the absolute time of our lives! First, the house is absolutely beautiful. It is in an excellent location and the owner is very truthful that it is simply a couple of steps from the bay. It is just a short block from the surf as well. Easy enough for us to haul all our stuff along with our party the size of a small country! The owners are truly exceptional people. They have taken every care in this rental. The artwork is gorgeous and as an art lover myself I really enjoyed pausing in the hallways to look. The decor is beautiful - Jann did an amazing job! There were some breakables out that we moved out of the way upon first entering just to ensure that the children didn't break anything. I was expecting to have to get paper plates and cups, etc.... No way! They have two sets of dishes (one plastic and one set of real dishes) with a TON of place settings (don't remember the exact number, however with our large group we had NO issues). There were even champagne flutes for our morning mimosa toast! The kitchen setup is awesome! The fridge was large enough for all of the food we brought for the 5 days we were there with a large freezer for storing ice. We cooked all of our own meals and had all of the pots, pans, strainers, cookie sheets, etc. that we needed. Everything we forgot was actually already there! We LOVED the master bedroom setup! Perfect for our large group with additional space for the extra queen size bed we brought for our kids! We had four adults and our three kids there and did not feel cramped in the least. The multiple decks/patios were also very nice. The patio outside is ADORABLE! We enjoyed our nights around the gas fire pit and loved the ambiance of lighting the candles around the table. There are a TON of beach toys and beach towels including umbrellas, a cart, rolling cooler, etc. The owners were so amazing that they even mailed me the few items that we left. I am very grateful for this. Tim was also helpful in directing us on where to park our cars. We have massive vehicles (four door extended cab truck and a GMC Yukon) and they were just a couple inches too long for the garage. Another in our party has a full size jeep and was able to fit just fine. There is overnight parking very close by (within walking distance). I would HIGHLY recommend staying here. We do plan on coming back again. As the title states, if there were more stars they would be added here!

Cant wait to come back!

  • 5 of 5

Jann and Tim were such great hosts at their beach house! The house is great, so close to the bay and the beach. Best part is the garage....Its nice and big and we were able to fit both vehicles in it! Since parking is in high demand there! Our family comes to San Diego every summer and hope to stay there again next year! Its very roomy, clean and maintained! It has everything that you would need from home! Plus your dogs can come on vacation with you! We loved the bikes because we ride everyday! They provide more than enough beach toys, chairs and umbrellas so no worries about that. I would definitely recommend this property, plenty of room to sleep and bathrooms on every level! See you next summer!
