About the property

Larger 2 Bedroom, 2 Full Bathrooms, --

You will feel right at home in this warm, yet airy and roomy beach home. Prime location, open floor-plan, and large furnished outdoor patio make for the perfect beach get-away. Only 4 houses from the boardwalk and just a 30 second walk to the ocean. No busy streets to cross, and no hills or stairs to climb—just drag your towel to the sand!

Our home sleeps 5 in beds, which includes a King in the master, and queen in the second bedroom with a twin bunk/loft. The large master suite has an attached full bathroom, his/hers built in “California Closets”, and high-end Indonesian hardwood furniture. The slightly smaller second bedroom has another full bath right next to it. See photos & “layout” section below.

Other Amenities include: washer/dryer, outdoor BBQ, Adorable playhouse for kids, outdoor shower, beach chairs & toys, the full kitchen is nicely appointed with a dishwasher & two sinks, there are fans, flat TV’s, DVD players in all rooms, central heating, basic cable TV, Wi-Fi, breakfast bar with two barstools, and drop-leaf dining table for 4 and a beautiful fireplace & hardwood floors. Two full baths with tubs, and newer ADA height TOTO toilets.


1,000sq ft living space, 550 sq ft patio living.

Larger Master Bedroom: 13'X12', Bedroom two: 11'X10'

There are two patios. A large furnished front patio where guests spend most of their time, and a smaller back patio that leads to the car port. Both patios are enclosed, the front with lattice which feels open and private as well. The kitchen, dining room, and living room are all open concept, which lends itself to a “Great Room” feel.

Why choose us?

Family owned and operated, which means we care. Our home is south-facing. This is a huge bonus for sun in the months of October through April. North facing houses do not get a lot of patio sun. For example, you can be freezing in the shade on a north facing patio and right across the street be sun tanning in a bikini. It’s called, “the sunny side of the court”. I can’t over emphasize the value of sun from fall to spring. Also, central heating is a plus, with a cozy fireplace. We also keep incandescent bulbs in our lights instead of the harsh CFL bulbs.

Location. Some courts are better than others. For North Mission, our court is filled with well kept homes, has a lot of palm trees, and it’s long with 7 houses on our court. This is opposed to other courts that are rundown, have apartment buildings on the court, and are short (which means there might be 2-3 homes on the entire court). Finally, our home is NOT your 'run of the mill' vacation rental. It is a custom Spanish style warm-feeling home with great energy.

Lot size. We are on a 2400 sq ft lot. Many homes are on smaller 1200 sq ft lots. This allows us to have double the patio size, a more spacious open feeling interior layout, all on one level. The extra full bath, and our parking space is a little bigger than average as well.

Why not choose us?

If anyone in your group is looking for perfection or is picky. Our place is not perfect and neither is Mission beach. We try hard to please and replace items all the time (linens etc.). We also have excellent housekeeping and the photos are accurate. However, although nice, as you can see from the photos the kitchen and baths are not state of the art, and some of the windows are older and the front deck is a little rustic. In our opinion, this adds to the beach cottage charm & experience. We also try and incorporate this into the lower prices we offer—especially for what you get relative. Furthermore, like any house, there are always odds & ends that need attention, and we do fix things along the way, but at any given time there are always a few outstanding minor items. We do not have AC, which is a welcome amenity at some points in late summer.

In the end, we are looking for warm, reasonable, easygoing down-to-earth guests that will appreciate the home and our efforts. Finally, our home is not suitable for "partiers" and illegal anything.

Misc. Information:

Our Mission Statement: With care, superior customer service, and value in mind, we strive to offer a clean, charming beach house that we would want to rent ourselves.

The home is close to Sea World, the World Famous San Diego Zoo, and San Diego's historic Old Town area. La Jolla (the Jewel) is just a few miles North with amazing shopping and restaurants/bars. A visit to our beach house will truly be a memorable one for you and your family.

Sunny Side of the Court

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful, clean and well furnished home. The patio catches the morning sun and is great for that first cup of coffee. The court is quiet and does not have vehicle traffic (only foot traffic). Would highly recommend!

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four, parents plus two sons ages 22 and 18. Spent our 2017 Thanksgiving here. Location is perfect. House had everything we needed. Kitchen is adequately stocked. Very clean and comfortable. We sat on the deck to read. Used the grill. The house is very close to ocean walk. It was great everyday to walk and see all the people out. We would definitely stay again. Hopefully soon!

Great property, great owner

  • 5 of 5

This property is very close to the beach and had everything we needed. It would be great for a family. The owner was very responsive and a sincerely nice guy. I highly recommend it. One note -- there is no AC, but we didn't need it in late October/early November.

About The Owner

The two of us were fortunate enough to live in Mission Beach for over 20 years. This particular home was our first purchase as a married couple, and we loved raising our two young kids here. It was exciting and adventurous having the beach as their “backyard playground”, and the long boardwalk to take us up and down the coast. Even better was coming home to a beautiful house that felt comfortable and warm. Even though we now have grown and moved on, we still hold onto the memories we made here, and will always love this home. You will quickly see why when you arrive! Now as vacation rental owners, we aim to give our guests the same experiences that we expect when renting a vacation home. We are not perfect, and neither is Mission Beach, but we try to be!

The Owner purchased this house in 2004

Why The Owner chose Mission Beach

Mission Beach is unique because it’s the only beach in San Diego with not one, but two long, flat boardwalks that go right along the sand on the beach & bay – no busy streets, no hills, and no steep cliffs. The “beach side” is full of life and energy with fun shops, cafes, etc., while the “bay side” is more easy-going and peaceful. Both are equally beautiful. On the beach, you can take a surf lesson, boogie board, or just enjoy the waves, while on the bay you can rent a sailboat, catamaran, kayak, etc. We also love this beach because it is centrally located in San Diego, so it’s not a far drive to the airport, Zoo, Sea World, or downtown.

What makes this house unique

Prime location! This home is perfectly situated – close to the boardwalk, yet away from the busy crowds and parking lots. Close enough to walk or bike to shops, bars/restaurants, and Belmont Park, but far enough away to enjoy some peace and quiet on the patio, too. This home is set up for small families with kids, who are looking for a relaxing, fun-filled beach getaway. When traveling with kids, we understand the need for certain amenities. We want you to feel like you're on a true vacation with the conveniences of home. This house has a fully equipped kitchen, beautifully decorated throughout, and a large patio for outdoor dining. We look forward to sharing our special one-of-a-kind home with you!
