Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great experience! Everything was clean and orderly. The location was perfect, close to the bay and an easy walk to the beach. We have stayed at a few VRBO homes and this by far was the best! We look forward to returning in the future!

Good time in SD

  • 5 of 5

A really old and charming, 1925, home that has been very well cared for and is in a great location. Had a wonderful time and hope to return next year. Just bring your own food, a laundromat is located close by. A really nice place to stay and relax.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed with my two children for two weeks in August. The house was clean and well appointed. The addition of the AC unit upstairs was appreciated, it did a great job keeping the loft comfortable. Close to the beach and bay, walking distance to lots of restaurants and shops. This was our second stay here and we would definitely return to this cottage for a third visit.

Beautiful cottage in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Best of the best. A really perfect centralized location right between the beach and the bay. But definitely stay here again. We were able to do so much and still spend time on the beach.

Disappointing place, great location

  • 1 of 5

We were very disappointed with our stay in this house.

The biggest issue was the heat in July and the lack of air conditioning. We have three kids, one of which is 2 and a napper, and we had to skip the nap each day due to how hot the house was. The way the house is situated there just is no air movement until later at night. The upstairs was unbearable until around 8pm. The downstairs bedroom is really a converted garage off of the end of the kitchen and it is very dark and very stale. The navy blue carpeting is very dated and was dirty. The kitchen is very narrow and difficult to use in addition to being sparsely equipped.

Overall we felt like this was not a good value for what we paid for it. My wife and I have been coming to Mission every year since we were both kids and have continued to do so with our children. We have stayed in dozens of places and this is the worst we can remember. We ended up just spending as little time in the house as possible which was not ideal with 3 kids. Luckily it is Mission Beach so we just set up camp on the beach during sunlight hours.

On the positive side the owner was very easy to work with and she made the booking process quite easy. Other than a remodel and adding AC there is not much she could have done to impact our impression of the place.

This might be a great place if you don't have little kids and are not coming during the hot summer months but we were very disappointed with our stay based on what we paid for this rental.
