Front Unit! Front Unit! Front Unit!

TOP 10 Reasons to Stay at my Surfrider condo!

1. VIEWS! The Property is in the front of the building directly on the boardwalk with panoramic ocean views to the south, west, and north. You will have a 14ft wide Floor to Ceiling window, as well as a 6 ft. sliding door right on the beach to view the Mighty Pacific Ocean!

Ocean Views from the Living room (as mentioned above), and the Floor to Ceiling kitchen window with breakfast bar, Both Bedrooms, and One of the 2 bathrooms.


Watch TV or Movies using the 100 inch (unique to this property) HD projector on the 9ft wide remote controlled movie screen/shade from the living room and Master bedroom.


Relax on the pillow top bed in the Master bedroom and have a full view of the boardwalk, waves, dolphins, pelicans, surfers and still have complete privacy with the special (unique to this property) reflective 8ft wide One Way glass on the bedroom wall.


Watch Movies or TV not only on the 100 inch HD projector mentioned above, but a 50 inch LED TV as well with a smart BluRay player with Netflix etc.


Enjoy your own Private Patio with high end outdoor furniture right on the boardwalk & beach. There is also a shared patio adjacent to the beach, hot tub, and BBQ’s.


Unwind in the 9ft sunken Hot Tub directly on the boardwalk (Surfrider Exclusive) and take in the panoramic ocean and boardwalk views.

7. Steam Washer and Dry in the unit!

8. GREENERY –not to be taken for granted, since it is one of only 2 units in the building, which overlooks fragrant Natal plumb blooms, pygmy palm trees, and succulents.


Once parked in your covered spot it is just a few steps to the Condo with no stairs. After you are done playing on the beach, you can use one of two Foot washers in the building that is 12 feet from your sliding door.

10. EXTRAS While listening to music or watching a movie the sound will captivate you with flush mounted wall speakers in the bedrooms and bathrooms, and a surround sound system with subwoofer in the living room.

The Surfrider is a visually stunning

condo building directly on Mission

Beach in San Diego. This property

is a front unit and one of only

two out of eleven in the building

that is right on the boardwalk

on the ground floor. No Stairs, No

Hassle, Perfect!

The Surfrider has the

only Sunken hot tub (9ft)

on the Boardwalk.

A copper roof,

Stainless Steel, glass, slate, stucco

and superb landscaping is what

you see from the outside.

Once inside, floor to ceiling

windows with direct ocean

views from the living room,

kitchen, master bedroom will

captivate you. You might

also notice the 50' LCD TV,

stainless steel fridge,

range/oven, dishwasher,

and slab granite counter tops.

But what really sets this place

off is the view of the waves

crashing into your front yard

beach, viewed from every room and your

private patio directly on the boardwalk!

My personal favorite is lying in

bed watching the 100'

Projector TV, then waking up

in the morning raising the

projector screen/shade via

remote from bed and then

enjoying the view of the

waves and the boardwalk

traffic once again, but they

cannot see you due to the one

way reflective glass. NICE!!

About Brett Gilner

San diego resident since 2000, California since 1997. Love the beach life.

Staying fit, and the amazing variety that San Diego offers.

Brett Gilner purchased this condo in 2004

Why Brett Gilner chose Mission Beach

After traveling the world there is no place that has this combination of Fun, Sun, Surf, people watching, dining, entertainment, nightlife and overall great weather like San Diego. With mission beach being the best of the best.

What makes this condo unique

The waves literally crash right in front of you. Watching the dolphins, surfers, pelicans diving, and people passing on the beach & boardwalk from the couch, or any other room in the Condo. Never a dull moment!

Guestbook Comment

Where do I start. Brett was professional during the entire process of renting the unit and everything he promised went exactly as planned. For the unit itself, the pictures do not do it justice. To start with, it is one of the few rentals that will accommodate my Expedition in the parking space with out taking off the outside mirror’s. Inside, the place is even more gorgeous then the pictures. The slate floors, granite counters and stainless appliances make this seem like a luxury house. The place is well equipped and all of our needs were filled. The grounds of the complex are kept immaculate by the grounds crew who clean every morning. The view from the master bedroom/family room/patio cannot be beat. During our stay all of the other residents we met were friendly and courteous and having just as much fun as we were. I have stayed in other rental properties on Mission Beach but this out shines them by far. I would highly recommend this property to anyone planning a vacation to San Diego.

One Week Dream Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have picked a better spot in San Diego to spend time with my husband's 90 year old father on his 'bucket list' trip...beach, beach and more beach!

We woke up every morning with a panoramic view of the beach and ocean and were entertained all through the day by distant ships, surfers, skateboarders, bicyclers, runners, and walkers. The boardwalk was a great place for a stroll in early evening and we watched the most beautiful sunsets each evening from our patio.

The condo was clean, quite comfortably appointed and easy to maintain. Brett responded immediately to questions via phone and couldn't have been nicer. Your stay at Surf Rider will make your trip. :-)

Cant get any closer to the water.

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing 5 days. Brett was amazing to work with and helped us out through the whole PayPal process. Now about the condo. Perfect for my husband and I. The view is incredible and being able to just step out to the sand was a huge plus for us. The kitchen is equipped with the minimal essentials, could of used a mixer since I was baking some cookies. Ralph's is conveniently located down the street you can walk or quick car ride. The Boardwalk is great for people watching and walking early in the morning. Bedding was perfect for the two of us. I think it may be a bit cramped if you have little ones running around. There is no dining table but a bar with 4 stools that look out the windows. Tough if you have children. One difficulty is the patio chairs are all tied down and I understand but it's hard to move them as the sun moves. There is no patio table either for dining. So besides the view, there is an incredible projector movie screen thing that is fabulous and we enjoyed it so much we never left the condo in the evening. Between the night ocean breeze, the movies we watched, and the beautiful setting who needs to go out. Brett I need to reserve for July, but it's completely booked for the whole month. I am sad.

Had an awesome vacation in Brett's condo!!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is absolutely wonderful! Right on the beach and in walking distance of everything. Condo was nice and clean and we cooked breakfast every morning and sat outside and had our coffee. We have 2 boys 15 and 12 and they loved the beach and every nite they would visit Belmont Park and the arcade. My 12 yr old won an I phone 5 from one of those vending machines:)

Brett was really great to work with and answered all my questions. One of my suggestions to anyone visiting this area, is to find the small local grocery store just down the road if you plan on cooking. Otherwise you will be driving a long distance to find a Walmart, etc. Enjoyed all the little local restaurants. I highly recommend visiting this condo, will definitely be back! Thanks Brett!!

Best Place on th Boardwalk

  • 5 of 5

My brothers and I stayed in July 2013. It was the perfect setting for the laid back adventure we were seeking. We were in close proximity of all the happening spots of Mission Beach as well as being in the middle of the boardwalk action. The facilities were top rate especially the drop down screen and projector. Nothing beat the evening sunsets and the friendly neighbors. I wanted my brothers to live the California experience and Brett's place did not let me down. It was perfect for the five of us. I'd like to thank Brett for the great service. He was in communication whenever I had a question and had the patience of Jobe. Loved it so much, I will be trying to get a week in this summer!
