About Nancy Whalen
When we're not at the beach, we live in Phoenix, Arizona, Rick grew up there and Nancy is from Massachusettes and also lived in Wisconsin. We have been married for 34 years and have three grown sons. We go to San Diego as often as we can. We love all the San Diego has to offer and never get tired of acting like tourists. We have enjoyed getting to know families from all over the world who have stayed here, made memories, and filled our guest books.
Nancy Whalen purchased this House in 2003
Why Nancy Whalen chose Mission Beach
We rented this house for nine summer vacations, starting 27 years ago when our twins were babies! We love this house and always called it 'our beach house' even before we bought it. One summer we we arrived to find 'our beach house' was For Sale ! It is a dream come true to own this house and we are very thankful for all the fun times it has provided with our friends and our family. We look forward to spending many happy years with our children and someday their children in this special place.
What makes this House unique
There are three levels so there's plenty of space for everyone. Lots of outdoor space on front patio (private and fully enclosed), roof deck, and balcony off kitchen. Only two house between us and the water- close enough that you don't even mind running back to make lunch or use the bathroom. The sound of the ocean and the views are great. Kennebeck is a great court and because we are six blocks north of the roller coaster, our section of the beach is less crowded than many others. But we're still close enough to walk or bike to everything on Mission and Pacific Beach.

Great beach house
Our family loved the Whalen’s beach house. The house was well equipped with beach supplies and the kitchen supplies. The Whalen’s we’re very accommodating. All around 5 starts
Fantastic beach home! Cozy!!!
The house is cozy and welcoming with all the amenities of home! Thank you to the owners!
This large house in an ideal location just two doors from the beach served our purpose very nicely. The House easily accommodated our three families and all were satisfied with sleeping arrangements. Kimberly was superb in her attention to minor issues that required an on-site representative to resolve. We all enjoyed our Easter week vacation.
Spring Break 2018
We had a great time. Plenty of room for our family of 9. The house was better stocked than any we have used in San Diego. There is a personal touch that makes the property feel like home away from home. We hope to return again next year.
Amazing beach vacation
We recently spent 6 weeks in the Whelan's beautiful beach house. The home is completely and beautifully furnish with everything you could possibly need from beach toys and chairs to cooking supplies and dishware for our wonderful family dinners. The location is ideal made great for long beach walks, great restaurants within walking distance and close to lots of fun entertainment. We couldn't have been happier and hope to return next year.
Wonderful for a family reunion
This is our third time staying in San Diego at the Whalen's. Our family has grown so we now book their adjacent Dollhouse as well. The kitchen is very well equipped and the beds are comfortable. Everything we need for the beach, from towels to sand toys, is provided. Management is very responsive and pleasant. This is an excellent vacation spot!
Mission Beach is a lively beach community with something for everyone! Find out why we love it so much!

Sea World is five minutes away ! Visit Old Town, the San Diego Zoo, Coronado Island, and Balboa Park. Go to the horse race in Del Mar. Take the train to Tijuana. Take your kids to Lego Land.
