Mission Beach Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

Bungalow, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

This is a great value and very close to the beach, just in from the boardwalk. You will love our Sand Castle which is located just off the Boardwalk, fifty steps to the sand! Three doors from the shore near the corner of Ocean Front Walk and Dover Court. Bright and sunny cottage style unit with big patio area and covered parking.

We have two of these cottages sitting side by side. See photos that show two of each room and click on map to see how close we are to the surf! Our Sandcastle is located at 722 and 724 Dover Court in South Mission just south of the Roller Coaster. Ground level, Single-level, and also has a great outdoor patio with table for four to six. Enjoy grilling and dining while just steps away from the deep blue sea, the boardwalk, sandy beach, and surf! Close to the action, yet quiet and a few doors away for a more peaceful stay.

Your kids can play in the ocean right in front of lifeguard tower #12 which is located right out on the beach where you will set up your day at the beach!

Extra guests will enjoy the quality Sofa/Futon in living room, always a favorite place to sleep with the TV, DVD and VCR remotes in hand. Lots of windows give this Beach House character and a Beach Cottage feel.

Plenty of bike parking too. Breakfast Bar connects living and kitchen area. Great Location in Mellow South Mission! Not too close to the crowds, but close enough to be convenient and easy. Bike rentals, kayak rentals, sail boats rentals are all nearby. Amusement Park, Market and restaurants all within 2 to 3 block walk..

Carport parking is covered and semi-enclosed.

The washer and dryer will help you pack lightly. We have a clean laundry room just steps from your back door.

Planning a Family Reunion or Group Trip? Rent one or all of our Sandcastles! We offer two neighboring buildings with a total of five units to choose from ranging from one to three bedrooms. We can sleep 2 to 28 guests!!!

We also have a three bedroom unit available at VRBO #134781, #217948 and a two bedroom unit available at VRBO #53900 YEARROUND , if you need another unit for a reunion. All of our units sit side by side and total six bedrooms, so bring the entire gang and hang out as neighbors!

About Sharon Davis

Family of 5 loving the Beach!

Sharon Davis purchased this bungalow in 2000

Why Sharon Davis chose San Diego County

Great beach with lots of room to run and play! Close to the fun Roller Coaster and Carousel and shops too! Bike riding on the boardwalk is the best!

What makes this bungalow unique

Flat and easy access directly onto the beach, just three doors down from our cottages. Easy to load up all the gear and hit the beach!

The beach house was just like the photos. Lovely, comfortable, & well stocked.

  • 5 of 5

It was a fabulous week...friends and family are begging me to do it again next year...GREAT IDEA! The owners are wonderful, friendly and on the spot if needed. The beach house was adorable, comfortable, clean and SO close to the beach and all the many fun things to do at the Boardwalk. If you're on the fence about where to go for a great vacation, this is my recommendation!

We loved our stay!

  • 4 of 5

This is an awesome little beach house. It was super clean and cozy with cute decor and all the amenities of home. We especially loved the short walk to a clean beach, super fun board walk, rides, restaurants, and Sea World. We would definitely stay here again.

Great place for a great price!

  • 4 of 5

I am so glad I stumbled across VRBO and this cute little house right off the beach, rather than going with a hotel that would have not been nearly as nice, accommodating or even close to the beach. This house had all the amenities we needed, and was so ridiculously close to the beach, that we all loved it. The only downfalls were the tiny parking space to fit my SUV into and we could hear the neighbor's upstairs moving around late at night, but that's nothing the owners really can help. The house was clean and had a cute, beach theme. We would definitely stay here again!

Perfect Petite Beach Condo for Small Family

  • 5 of 5

This is our third time staying in a VRBO condo on South Mission Beach and this was by far the best. Location was great- less than a block from the beach, a quick walk to Belmont Park, Starbucks (for morning coffee), and cheep burritos. The neighborhood was a fun mix of friendly locals and weekenders, and polite (yes, really) collage kids. If you are staying on Mission, you already know that a lot of the condos are rented by USD and UCSD students, so weekend day parties happen- with music, solo cups and beer pong. However, everyone was quite by 8pm. This condo was equipped with everything we needed. Lots of towels and kitchenware (which is a definite perk for us because we cook most meals). Bed was comfy, water pressure was outstanding. There are some shared beach toys for the kiddos and even a foot bucket to get the sand off before going in. We are a family of three- it would get cramped with too many more- but it was perfect for us. We would stay here again.

Beach is literally 2 houses away!!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed staying here. The home was super cute and clean when we arrived. We loved the location of it!! We could wander down the street to find super yummy food or even have it delivered late at night!!! The beach was SO close. You could hear and smell the ocean and our car was covered with sea mist each morning! We walked down multiple times a day to the beach. It was not crowded at all, perfect location. We loved the fire pit and the outdoor patio. The only downside was the neighbors used up the propane in the fire pit, so I emailed the owners to let them know so it could be refilled. It was within 20 minutes of every activity we wanted to do, and driving around wasn't bad at all. We were glad we had a small rental car to park in the covered parking though! We most definitely will be back. It is the perfect beach side home. Next time, we'll bring our child :) Thank you so much!!!!!
