The Great Blue Heron
Come and Experience this exceptionally large waterfront 4 bedroom beautifully remodeled bay front beach rental with 2600 square feet of living space for your vacation enjoyment. The location on the quieter side, the Bayfront provides a wonderful atmosphere for vacationing in San Diego. The Great Blue Heron is the perfect choice for your large families and reunions, as it will accommodate up to a maximum of 12 people for the home.
Tastefully decorated in nautical cottage interiors with all new kitchen and granite counters along with Pottery Barn style furnishings add that extra touch for a true beach feel and experience. Renting this beach accommodation, will delight and pamper your guests after a long day playing at the beach. With San Diego's notoriously perfect weather (practically), visiting the beach can be a wonderful experience any time of the year. This vacation home occupies the 2nd and 3rd floor levels of the building. You and your guests will have years of memories and fun filled stories about your stay in Mission Beach at The Great Blue Heron.
Your vacation rental sits on the gorgeous and peaceful beach front with a delightful view of the glimmering water outside your door at the beach. Each morning the sun elevates itself above the horizon to cast it's first morning light across the shimmering waters for your pleasure. In the summer season, each night, you have front row seats to experience Sea World's nightly fireworks display. Mission Beach is unique in that it sits on a peninsula with both the bay and the ocean. The Great Blue Heron is at the narrowest part of that peninsula, which makes it the ideal location.
Imagine sitting on your balcony with a cup of coffee watching the sunrise over the water, or in a minute walk across the street to watch the waves. This is the perfect beach location for families with small children or for people who enjoy a less hectic beach experience. The bay is quieter with less foot traffic and bikes so the little ones can safely play on the sand and along the peaceful water's edge. But, when your urge for action arises to meet the mighty Pacific Ocean you are only 150 steps from the ocean side and you can tackle the waves with your boogie board or surf boards. But, you will love coming back to the calm picturesque waters of the bayside.
This beach front vacation accommodation, has 2 gorgeous master bedrooms with deliciously comfortable king beds Two additional large bedrooms have 2 equally comfortable queens each (total of 4).

The environment we provide and the bayside in Mission Beach is a more low key area with an amazing location on the waterfront.
1. Its beach front property for #1.
2. Its gorgeous, well cared for and maintained to a higher level.
3. Its extra large by Mission Beach standards.
4. It actually has enough room for 12 people in normal beds, no hidden beds for you to have to use.
There are very few homes in Mission Beach who truly have a large enough home to accommodate 10 to 12 people.
What's not to love?
Large Spacious Bedrooms, and home, are the key for this vacation home.
Most rentals in the beach area, are a tight squeeze at best. The Great Blue Heron is a lovely vacation home, where you can have up top 12 people together, with out feeling on top of each other.
One of the better choices for large groups who want to come together and spend time.
Our family is scattered throughout the U.S.---Hawaii, Washington, California and Virginia, so we all look forward to getting together at least once a year. This place and location exceeded our expectations for our reunion. The little ones (four children under 4 years) loved the calm bay side and sand right outside the condo and everyone enjoyed the change of scenery on the ocean side....just a short walk.
We had a great time riding bikes, paddle boarding and going to Sea World....so many activities that all ages can enjoy together.
With 8 adults and 4 children the extra large bedrooms made our stay very restful and relaxing, plus the beach toys, beach chairs and lovely big barbecue were an added bonus.
Cynthia took care of our every need and helped to make it a very special family reunion. We would love to do it again another time!
This property is exceptional place to celebrate our 50th Wedding Anniversary with our family. With 11 people, 7 adults, 3 teens, 1 child, it fit us great on everything from size to location with bedrooms being especially spacious. Our extended family enjoyed mornings and evenings riding bikes or walking along the boardwalk, and just a short walk to the beach, Belmont Park and restaurants. Every evening you can view the beautiful fireworks display over Mission Bay right from the comfort of your living room. The Condo was clean, well equipped, comfortable and beautifully decorate. The Manager Cynthia is great and was there to greet us on our arrival and give us a short tour to get our week started and answered our questions. The location was just a described and looks like the photos provided on the VRBO website. We highly recommend this rental for anyone wanting more room than most rentals and looking for a rental in great condition.
This property is outstanding! The view as you walk in is beautiful; it starts your Beach Vacation out right! The condo is clean and spacious. Plenty of room for everyone. Perfect location, easy access to Bay, Beach, Belmont Park, Sea World..... Our family had some very “spirited” games of beach volleyball every evening, and those that chose to not participate, could watch from the balcony. Watching fireworks each night from our balcony was wonderful! Cyndi was great to work with, from start to finish! This condo was perfect for our Family Reunion. Thanks Cyndi!
This property is exceptional! It hit the mark on everything from size to location. The bedrooms are especially spacious. Our extended family enjoyed mornings of riding bikes or walking along the boardwalk and afternoons playing on the bay. Every evening we viewed the beautiful firework display over Mission Bay right from the comfort of our living room. All in all this was a "10" in the way of a vacation for our family!
This vacation sight is superior, you won't find any better. The condo is clean, well equipped, comfortable
and beautifully decorated. The view from the living room and kitchen could be a picture on your wall.
My family say it is the best vacation they ever had. You are just steps from the sand, bay and surf. The owners are wonderful to work with. They are on sight to help and answer any questions. You
will never regret making this choice.
Our large extended family takes a vacation each year to a beach location for some family beach time, and we need accommodations for 12 people.
The location was just as described and looks like the photos provided on the VRBO website.
The Great Blue Heron was just right for our needs. We had beds for all 12 of us in this extra large rental and 3 full bathrooms which helped with our large family.
The place was just as promised with everything we needed for a week at the beach. The view is great on the bayside and we sat on our balcony every meal and watched the water and activities.
The rental itself was very nice with great beds and very clean and maintained just as promised.
The manager Cyndi is great and was there to greet us on our arrival and give us a short tour to get our week started and answered our questions.
We walked to restaurants a couple of times which was short and easy. Sea World was only a few minutes away and we took advantage of the info provided by Cyndi for free things to do with this large crew. When you rent, its a must to see The San Diego Zoo and the tide pools at either La Jolla or Point Loma at low tide time. With our large family we always plan games on the sand and tend to be very competitive. It was great to have a hose to wash off before entering the rental.
We highly recommend this rental for any one wanting more room than most rentals and looking for a rental in great condition.
We will be back to this rental, the next time we vacation in San Diego.
The Great Blue Heron Vacation Home, is located in the heart of Mission Beach on the bayfront. We have an excellent location over looking the beach bayside. Its a great fit for large families and provides great space for staying comfortably.
