WONDERFUL VACATION.

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 4 spent a short vacation at Tom and Terry’s Bayside apartment and had a great time. We wished we could have stayed longer! Tom and Terry are very welcoming and friendly, yet not intrusive. The place is perfectly located. We went to the nearby grocery store for in-house dining with kids and were also able to walk to restaurants. When the beach is literally outside the doorstep, you can’t ask for more. It was nice to have the bay right in front of you and have the option to take a short walk to the ocean. The place has enough space for you to spread out and has everything you need. At the same time, it has charm and it’s not over the top, making it an affordable option. It was great to have the outside patio area to hang out and eat meals.

The rooms are versatile. We had a pack n’ play in the master bedroom for our infant son to stay with us and our preschooler in the second bedroom. I could imagine a variety of configurations to meet a family’s sleeping needs.

We felt so comfortable and absolutely enjoyed our stay. We hope to return and that the rental is available!

SUNNING ON SAIL BAY

  • 5 of 5
What a fabulous spot. A beautiful patio just across the sidewalk from the beach and bay. The house is so comfy and well cared for. Everything is so clean and well kept.The owner faithfully waters the beautiful potted plants and drops by often to see if we need anything.
The hosts are wonderful. We truly enjoy being with them. The neighborhood is very welcoming with mostly full time residents. We live near Buffalo and are anxiously awaiting our 4th visit soon.

BAYSIDE BEACH HOUSE, MISSION BEACH - BEAUTIFUL SCENERY & CLOSE TO EVERYTHING

Bayside Beach House, Mission Beach - Beautiful scenery & close to everything
  • 5 of 5
Our family of 4 have been staying at this Beach House for 8 Summers & 30 years at other locations in San Diego. We are so fortunate we found Tom & Terry who in my estimation are one of the premier owners of Beach Houses in Mission Beach. Not only are they gracious hosts but they have a beautiful Beach House at the corner of Bay Side Walk & Toulon. Tom & Terry are successful owners & have a viable product (Beach House) in one of the most desirable locations in the USA. This Beach House has all the amenities of a resort yet the privacy of your own unit. Everything is within walking distance or a short bike ride. Restaurants ( Inexpensive -Taco Stand near the Catamaran & Higher priced ie World Famous), grocery stores Ralphs, Trader Joes, Bike rentals Radd Action Sports reasonably priced & nearby. The ocean is a 2 minute walk from the Beach House & yes it's close enough that you can carry all your beach gear. At 9:45pm grab your beach chair or sit on the patio & watch the nightly fireworks from Sea World. The reflection of the fireworks off the water is breath taking & a definite Kodak moment. Other tourist locations are Old Town, San Diego Padres baseball, deep sea fishing, Sea World, Balboa Park, San Diego Zoo, La Jolla, Del Mar race track, many beaches, etc. Our family has enjoyed the past 30 years vacationing in San Diego/Mission Beach. There is someting to do or see for everyone. The Beach House has beautiful views not only from the patio but from the family room via a huge bay window, large functional kitchen, safety of a garage to store any bike rentals, free wifi, 2 BR but can sleep more & gas BBQ. Tom & Terry have done it right. They are such a wonderful caring couple & will make you feel right at home staying at their Beach House. I passionately encourage you to make a rsvp & stay at the Beach House. It will be one of your more memorable vacation stays you will experience.

HOME AWAY FROM HOME!

  • 5 of 5
Our family has stayed at the beach house three times and we loved every trip. Everything we needed was provided by the beach house (even the Kayak) so it minimized our need to bring everything on our vacation. All restaurants, bars, beach, bay and rentals were all within walking distance. The only time we used our car during the trip was to buy groceries at the local Ralphs. Tom and Terry were the best when it came to hospitality. They greeted us upon arrival with the local newspaper and a fresh clean house. They were available if we needed any assistance with activities and housekeeping requests. We are looking forward to returning home in 2014.

OUR ANNUAL GETAWAY SPOT!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of four has vacationed at this bayside location for the past four years and plan to continue renting for years to come. For ten years we rented from various owners until we stumbled upon this gem. The owners are awesome and have worked our family into their group of "regulars" which means they are kind enough to reserve our desired week for us each year, giving us first priority.

The house is perfectly located in the same bay as the Catamaran Hotel where we can easily take advantage of the hotel's spa and water rentals. Several of our favorite restaurants (World Famous) and shops are located within walking distance. We think this stretch of the bay is the nicest. It seems to be a little quieter and is definitely family friendly. We love walking the few blocks to the beach side for some beach fun and then coming back to the quiet calmness of the bay side.

The house has amazing views of the Bay from the living room and patio. It is super clean and well maintained and the owners always make little changes each year to keep the home comfortable and current. We currently have a 4 and 8 year old so the size of the house is perfect for us. One of the benefits of this rental is that the owners allow renters to use their umbrellas, chairs, kayak, boogie boards, sand toys, etc. We used to live driving distance but now that we're in Colorado we have to fly. It is so nice to have all of the necessities right there waiting for us. In addition to the beach fun the owners provide internet, DirectTV, a DVD player, and a nice coffee pot! And I know this may sound dumb while on a family/beach vacation but my daughter loves that there is a television in her room as well since that is not the case at home. It is one of the little treats that she looks forward to. Both of my kids are very comfortable in this home and my four year old frequently asks when we are going back to "his" beach house.

We strongly recommend this rental! You will not be disappointed.
