About Graham

My aunt and uncle have had a home on this court since 1946. I grew up with them and their daughter, my cousin, every summer of my life! What a lucky girl. When a cottage on the same court became available in 1976, we bought it. Since then, the termites had a field day and it needed to be torn down and rebuilt. We did that in 2008 and have been renting it ever since.

My husband and I live in San Jose. I'm not desperate to rent this home but will share it with people who have families and will not smoke or party. This is an exceptional court and I would never want to inconvenience or disturb my neighbors. I am very picky when it comes to renters.

Graham purchased this house in 1976

Why Graham chose San Diego County

This is a perfect home for multiple generation to enjoy a vacation together.

What makes this house unique

It's on a quiet court with no cars nearby. It has a two car garage which is a big plus at Mission Beach. It is within walking distance of a large supermarket, many restaurants and a large hotel with boat rentals and a spa.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I can't believe the space. Where do I begin, Jon said he loved the idea of going upstairs and going to sleep in the cool bedroom on the very top with the sound of the ocean to put him to sleep. Actually, I loved the idea that we could get away from the group if we wanted to have out own space. I know Jon loved the hot shower in the morning. Thw showers are incredible; I loved every one of them, the tile choices, colors, glass doors, etc. It was fun having our family come too. One day we had mom and dad come out for the day. They loved sitting in the living room looking out at the ocean. They were so pleased to be invited. We played cards, ate, rested, took them up to the seawall. Dad and Jon sat out on the patio enjoying the out of doors. With mom just turning 90 and dad at 93, it was an easy place to come and just relax for the day.

During our week there, my sister from South Dakota was visiting so it was a treat for her to be at the beach as well. She still sits in the sun for a tan.

Our kids loved coming out and bringing their kids too. We always went shell hunting at low tide, which was almost every morning that week. I would open my eyes in the morning to two little girls looking at me (waiting for me to wake up) and saying, "Gram, will you take us shell hunting?"

For me, I loved the kitchen and the big table for eating. It was usually full for every meal.

I think you did a phenomenal job decorating the house. I love every aspect of it. Emma (age 5) said, "Look, there's a library by the steps".

Thank you for letting us enjoy a week at the beach. It is one we will always remember.

My family loves to vacation in San Diego and this is the first time staying at this property. My family of 10 slept comfortably. This house is beautiful and is located close to every place we frequent. Everything you need is here, it is a well stocked house. Dishes, pot & pans, baby playpen, baby gates for the stairs (which we used), bikes, washer and dryer, beach chairs, boogie boards, games, etc. Just bring your clothes and food. I highly recommend spending your vacation in this home. We will definitely be staying here again.

Comfortable beach retreat in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at this charming, comfortable and welcoming home. Our family of 4 adults and 3 kids fit comfortably in the 3 bedrooms and living area. The host has thought of everything - books, games for the kids, beach toys, tea kettle, bicycles, etc. Our rental minivan fits in the garage after navigating the tight street. The neighborhood feels safe and quiet at night yet within walking distance to groceries and restaurants. The beach is a few steps away and downtown San Diego and La Jolla are only a short drive away. The manager, Graham, was very courteous and responded quickly to my emails. My kids love the bunk beds with the nautical-themed lights on the wall. Overall, a perfect stay in the perfect vacation getaway.

Birthday getaway

  • 5 of 5

The location in Mission Beach is excellent and there are many places(restaurants/bars/shopping) that are located in easy walking distance. The house location is a very short distance to the boardwalk, close enough for easy access but far enough to allow for quiet nights. The boardwalk was always busy and quite a show at sunset. In addition the house had a nice layout for 3 couples and also was the cleanest I have ever stayed at. Graham was very easy to work with on a few of the minor issues that arose. I would highly recommend this cottage if you are looking to stay in Mission Beach and want easy access to San Diego.

Amazing Home!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 adults recently stayed at Janet's lovely Cape Cod Home over the Christmas holiday. The house is lovingly furnished and felt like home! Just bring your clothes (and maybe a couple good books) and unwind! There is so much to do and see nearby, I only wish we had better weather to take better advantage of the beach (It's literally 55 steps from the Red door to the sand- I counted!)

After renting several homes from other sites, I was expecting to come in and find a few quirks with Janet's house, but honestly, everything worked perfectly from the moment we arrived and we had no issues with anything during our stay. Janet is the ideal host- clear in the guidelines surrounding your reservation, available if you need her for any issues, but otherwise out of your hair! I really appreciated her warm demeanor in our communications, she is a joy!

If you are looking for a great beach get away for your family or friends you really can't do much better than Janet's lovely Cape Cod!
