Amazing view, great location!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week at Virginia and Dan's lovely condo! It was well organized and stocked. Perfect location for walks to food, on the boardwalk and playing on the beach! Our kids loved the beach toys available and watching the boardwalk activity (saw Slomo and a proposal right in front of the condo!). The parking space was a bit narrow but we navigated that just fine by having the passenger side load/unload in the alley. The only thing I would say is that the hairdryer is nearing the end of it's life and probably needs to be replaced soon but we couldn't complain about anything else. We can't wait to come back!

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. :-) We, too, think the location is perfect for just about everything beach life has to offer. We can't believe you saw a proposal right in front of the condo. What fun!! We look forward to your next visit. By the way, we certainly would have sent a hair dryer had we known. We will definitely replace it. Thanks for the heads-up.

Excellent place to stay on the beach

  • 4 of 5

Utterly sparkling clean, well stocked kitchen, all appliances, all like new. Our hosts obviously take meticulous care of their condo. Comfotable furniture, stunning view of ocean with sunsetting right on the patio every night.

The boardwalk directly in front of the patio supplies a continuous flow of humanity from early morning until late at night: people sailing by on bikes, scooters, roller blades, and segways often with loud radios and loud shouts. An auditory challenge. main bedroom, okay in the rear bedroom unless there is a party on that side of the building. Relief available if you go out and sit near the waves.

Owner's Response: We are so happy to hear that our condo met and/or exceeded your expectations. :-) In Mission Beach and Pacific Beach, being directly on the ocean does mean you are also on the Boardwalk. We are surprised to hear about noise after dark; lowering the living room and master bedroom storm shutters at night would have been an excellent solution.

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here recently while he was attending a conference at the Sheraton at the Marina. We preferred to stay on the beach vs the marina so we booked this condo. It was a perfect location. Close to the conference and everything else we wanted to visit. Woke up every day to the ocean and watched the sunset every evening from the back porch. Everything you need is in this condo. It was also great having a refrigerator for left overs, breakfast items and beverages. Went for long walks on the beach when my husband was in conference. Easily walked to the grocery store and did some local shopping. Condo was clean and cozy and we enjoyed coming back to our home away from home every evening. I highly recommend staying here if you are visiting San Diego for any reason!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. We are so glad to hear that our place was your "home away from home" because that is certainly our goal. We agree that the location can't be beat! We, too, love to wake up every morning to the sights and sounds of the majestic Pacific Ocean. We look forward to hosting you and your husband again. Best wishes, Virginia and Dan

Great place

  • 5 of 5

Excellent place, right on the boardwalk. We enjoyed seeing all the people ride and walk by, waking up to views and sounds of the ocean. Saw dolphins and surfers from the patio deck. Very well stocked kitchen cooking utensils. Easy drives to zoo and sea world. A gem, can't wait to go back.

Gorgeous beach front property!!

  • 5 of 5

We travel to San Diego every summer. We are a family of 4 so we have specific needs when choosing a property. This home had everything we could want and more. The home has TV's in all the rooms. The bedrooms are big and spacious and the best part of the master is being able to look out to the ocean from the bed! The living quarters are spacious and the view of the ocean from the kitchen and living room couch can't be beat. The home has EVERYTHING you could possibly ever need. All kitchen supplies, bathroom supplies etc.

Here are a few things to take note of. This property does not have a grill. And they are not allowed. So if you are ok with an indoor grill, then this is perfect. We ate out only a few nights. Which by the way there are so many places right next to this property you will have a hard time choosing. We made lasagna; we made carnitas and breakfast every day. The other thing to take note of is that we had a hard time locking bikes up. We rented 3 bikes for the week and the rules state to not bring in the house or not leave on patio or front of house. The house book said to lock in the garage. It said that it allowed for 2 bikes. That's kind of tough when you are a family of 4. So we did manage to lock the 3 bikes in the garage but someone from the property said we couldn't lock them in there. This was super confusing and frustrating. We ended up locking them up in an area where other bikes were locked up in the front of property. Next time we will need more information on this.

As far as the location of the property, it's perfect. It's close to Belmont park. But far enough away to miss all the heavy traffic and crowds down there. I would say it's a 20 minute walk. I think this is the best location in mission beach. We thought it was so perfect we got marrried during our trip right on the beach in front of the house. It was perfect!!

We definitely would love to come back next year. And can honestly say this was the best place we have ever stay in Mission Beach!

Owner's Response: So happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay. We are especially thrilled to learn that you decided to get married on "our" beach while you were staying with us. Wow! Yes, we do have an electric grill because BBQ's are not permitted. We often take it outside and plug it in on the patio. It works well. We do have two spaces for bicycles. We contacted our HOA today to see if we can expand our bicycle space. We thank you for your thoughtful, kind review, and we look forward to your next visit.
