Located on Mariner’s Basin of San Diego’s world famous Mission Bay Park, in desirable South Mission Beach on the quieter, wind-protected bay side.

I am a retired international marketing executive who lives in the building on the floor below Mariner's Lookout.
We are a third generation San Diego family on our mother's side. Our late father was a Pediatrician who was born and raised in the Mid-West.
Our parents purchased this property, a tri-plex in 1959 when they realized that they had been crazy to take Summer vacations driving across the country through scorching deserts to get to hot, humid, thunder storm prone, mosquito-infested places after they had just left the best place to vacation that they knew.
The Mid-Western relatives could visit us instead.
We used the downstairs unit as a Summer home until 1974, when our parents sold the house in central San Diego (only about 5 miles away) and moved to the beach house as their permanent home. Two of my three brother's live near by-- one in the building's third unit and the other at the south end of Mariner's Basin.
My brothers and I can be tremendous resources for information about San Diego. Between us, we have about 250 years of experience of living in San Diego.
But we are cautious about leaving our tenants in peace. We will make a friendly greeting, let you know that we are at your disposal for information, then leave it to you to ask for what you want.
Nearby are Sea World, San Diego Zoo and Wild Animal Park, Pacific Beach, La Jolla, Mission Valley, Old Town, Downtown San Diego and the Gaslamp District, Legoland, Scripps Institute of Oceanography and Aquarium, Balboa Park, Seaport Village, Qualcomm Stadium and Petco Park
