Perfect vacation rental in mission beach.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had been to San Diego about a year and a half before our stay at Surfrider. We remembered it from our walks on Mission Beach and jumped at the chance to rent thus unit. It was as advertised in every respect.

The unit was clean and well appointed with updated fixtures and appliances. The unit had a large tv with a great surround system, but the best entertainment was the ceiling to floor glass window right next to it. Sitting at the window or on that patio is the best way to enjoy a morning coffee or an evening cocktail. I had always heard of the "green flash" during sunsets over the pacific but on our first day there I saw it as I watched the sun sink over the ocean horizon.

Our three kids were with us and I highly recommend the unit for families. You are literally a stones throw from the beach and on days when you are wondering what to do, the beach is always a great option in San Diego. We even had several meals at the condo and made use of the community grills.

As far as the rental process, it was as smooth as possible. As with every rental you want to do your due diligence and Kurt certainly understands and is responsive to requests.

Again this unit is a great value and comfortably accommodated our family of five.

We will definitely be calling Kurt on our next trip to San Diego.

'On the beach' Couldn't ask for a better location!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at Surf Rider for a week. Our stay was amazing and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Very well located, on the beach as described and very well equipped with everything we needed. There were 4 adults staying and the property was big enough for us but I would recommend 4 was enough for space and comfort. Saska's restaurant which the owner had recommended for dinner was one of our favourites. If we are ever back for vacation in San Diego we will stay here again.

Love the Mission Beach location

  • 4 of 5

My family of four enjoyed a four-night stay in early March at this fine condo. The location is great for access to the beach, walking/bike path, local restaurants, and attractions in the San Diego area. The photos are, for the most part, accurate; the place is exceptionally modern, clean, and upscale in feel. Everything worked great and the shower, in particular, was a joy to use.

Sitting at the big picture window in the living room with a beverage and watching the people go by on the strandway, with the beautiful beach and ocean just beyond, was a special treat. We also enjoyed the hot tub twice -- once with the kids, once without -- and that was awesome, too. Witnessed some great sunsets as a bonus!

The negatives were few in number, and relatively minor. First, be aware that while this condo does indeed have no obstructions between that living room window and the beach, this unit is not one of the front-most units at the Surf Rider. There is another unit between this one and the beach, and that one has the truly spectacular front patio with views.

Second, the condo is quite small. You don't get an accurate sense of its interior space from the photos or the description -- no square footage listed -- so I thought I should point this out. We were fine, just a bit cramped. I think that if we'd stayed longer than four days, the limited space would have been a more serious issue.

Finally, and this is my most serious complaint, a couple of repair men showed up one day, unannounced, to take measurements of the sliding glass door inside and out. We were there at the time, and we had no idea the men were coming, so it was an awkward, uncomfortable situation. The men got finished with their task fairly quickly, but it was still an intrusion on our vacation, made worse by the fact that we were caught totally unaware. If we'd been told they were coming, and when, we could have vacated the place first. But we didn't get a phone call or email in advance, nothing at all. (And I never could tell what was wrong with the sliding door.)

Despite those issues, we still have a good feeling about our time at this condo, which was pretty terrific overall. And, a final note, our security deposit was returned in full.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

Our 4 night stay at Surf Rider was relaxing and the perfect getaway for our small family. The property was clean and the location was amazing! We were able to cook and BBQ and have a similar schedule which was important for us and our baby. Even though we were told that a pack and play was available, we ended having to purchase one as we could not find one in the unit. We attempted to contact and request one, but there was no response. Nonetheless, we recommend this place for anyone with small children! This location is perfect for those who love to exercise as well!

Enjoy walking the beach,skating on the strand, riding bikes or just watching the sun set over the water. Conveniently located to area attractions. Great food in the area, especially Saskas and Rubicon Deli.

Family friendly, prime Mission Beach location

  • 5 of 5

Loved our 7 day stay at Surf Rider. Everything in the description accurate and the condo is extremely well-maintained. Excellent communication by the owner(s) and even had a problem during the stay with the DVD player that was resolved in quick fashion.

Perfect for families with kids as the beach is 20-30 steps away - out of the complex and across the beachwalk. We found numerous other families staying in other units with kids at Surf Rider so our boy had little friends to play sports with on the beach.

The hot tub with beach view really is a wonderful convenience and almost the envy of passers-by on the Beach Walk. Also a great location for those looking to keep up with their exercise regimen while on vacation - was able to take daily early morning runs of 4-6 miles on the beach walk and enjoy the eclectic Mission and Pacific Beach communities.

All in all, highly recommended and our 7-year old already has been asking when we can go back again. Success.
