Overview

Mission Beach Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms - 2 Baths - (Sleeps 6)

Our condo is located on one the quietest bays in the Mission Bay area. It is close to several Boat Launches and the channel to get into open ocean. Sea World is within walking distance. Fireworks from Sea World can be seen nightly during the summer from the living room couch, balcony or the beach below. San Diego Zoo (One of the top 5 zoos in the country) is less than a 15 minute drive.

Our unit is affordabley priced for families, and strategically located to enjoy all that San Diego has to offer. Great for families, or anyone that wants a lot of room (1400 sq ft), and a peaceful relaxing place to stay, yet with lots of activities very close by when it is time to kick it up a notch or two.

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • limited accessibility
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed the condo last week. The weather was good and my parents both enjoyed the great view from the balcony.



If we decide to come again next summer, you will definitely be hearing from me again.



Thank you.

Perfect Family Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This was the best place for our family to stay for a number of reasons! Marvin & Anna Lou were great owners to work with. The location is ideal; on the bay beach, and only a short walk to the ocean. Every morning we woke up and walked to the nearby Starbucks and then along the Ocean beach. Our 2 year old had an absolute BLAST at Belmont Amusement Park (literally didn't want to get off the merry-go-round)!

The bay-side beach was like having your own private beach. perfect! I would highly recommend this location for a family vacation!

Perfect Spot

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this condo! It's an open and airy space that offers a great view looking east over the bay. The location is ideal - you can walk right out to the sand on the bay side, or stroll just a few blocks over to the ocean. And for kids, Belmont Park and some beachside playgrounds are just about a 5 minute walk. It was perfect for our young kids.

The owners, Marvin & Anna Lou, were terrific. They were 100% committed to us having a great stay in San Diego, and even helped us navigate the area with recommendations and lists. We would happily stay here again!

Peaceful Beach Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was a fabulous place to stay if you prefer the beach vibe, with a little more privacy than what the ocean front offers. The unit is very clean, spacious and has everything you need to enjoy the ocean or bay. Mornings are SUPERB on the balcony with a cup of joe. Excellent location for walks along the bay, and close enough to the oceanfront walk if you prefer ocean side. We absolutely LOVED the owner, Marvin - a very gracious person. We didn't feel like "the renters" - he made sure we had a nice visit. That in itself is priceless. The only disadvantage is my parents are in their 70's and found the kitchen a little dark (for their vision) - but we wouldn't let that stop us from renting this unit again.

A GREAT condo and a GREAT location

  • 5 of 5

Marvin and Anna were sooooo accurate in describing the lovely condo but the pictures couldn't really express the beauty and tidiness of the place. The theme, the pictures, the notes on the fridge, and the plants gave it a special relaxing welcoming tone. Not to forget the welcoming surprise on the dining table!

I read the reviews which said how kid friendly it is to be so close to the bay when we baby sit, and I will add; then they could enjoy the ocean with their mom and dad.

Actually the reviews did help me a lot to make up my mind. My son, my daughter and her husband said WOOOW when they opened the door, it reminded us of our house on Hartford Street off Clairemont Drive.

I didn't want to leave the balcony, till very late at night, and I spent the day walking on the Pacific Ocean Beach then go to the Bay, then go to the lovely grocery shop round the corner to buy what i needed for the BIG and SMALL kids.

This condo has 2 doors which made it very practical to clean the sand off one's body and feet, or use the lift next to the other door!

The manager answered ALL my questions by emails or by phone. He was prompt and helpful. Marvin is soooo friendly and cooperative and made the payments easier for me through a friend in San Diego. His patience, until we made up our minds for the dates and room number, is highly appreciated.

We enjoyed every part in San Diego, and it is true that everything is 10/15 mints away.

Legoland was a 40 mint drive on a Wednesday morning.

Thank you Marvin and Anna for making our trip full of sweet memories, The coffee you put is amazing, I cooked in your kitchen and invited friends and we enjoyed the Sea World fireworks.

I surely will recommend your condo and would like to thank my friend Mrs. Ziegler for suggesting homeaway.com

Great place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

What a great condo and the perfect place to stay when in the Mission Beach area. This is the second time we have rented this condo and both times have been very pleased with our stay. The owners are just absolutely wonderful people and very helpful. I would highly recommend this condo to anyone who wants the perfect place to stay while in the Mission Beach area.

Beautiful condo, great owners.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the condo was great. Beautiful bay beach at our doorstep and the ocean a 5 minutes walk away. As a father staying there with my 3 daughters and grandbaby, i felt safe. The condo had everything we needed, plus. The owners are great and always prompt on answering any questions. Looking forward to next summer. One recommendation to renters...if your going to rent bikes, rent them for the whole week...cheaper and save on driving. Thanks again to Marvin.

Map

If you close your eyes and imagine a part of heaven, you will then know what a week here would be like. Enjoy the sand, sun, and water during the day, the romance of a walk along the bay or beach at night. Enjoy the special celebration of life along with the Sea World Fireworks. When the joy of the day eases to the sleepy moments of the night, relax, and go to sleep, knowing that another day of the beauty that San Diego has to offer, will be waiting for you to enjoy, in the morning.

Parks, golf courses, shopping, water sports, diving, hiking, and just about anything you can imagine you might want to do is within reach, all the time or during that special season.

Come and see what so many Southern Californians have learned. There is no place like San Diego.

Other Activities: shopping, kayaking, boating, parasailing, wildlife viewing, health/beauty spa, basketball court, racquetball, horseshoes, miniature golf
