Mission Beach House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 1 office, 2 full bathrooms, 2 half bathrooms, sleeps 14

Nantucket Style on Mission Beach

Our Home is a brand new quintessential beach house designed and detailed to match its sisters in Siasconsett on the north coast of Nantucket Island. From its elegant copper roof, eastern white cedar shingles, obligatory Dutch door or its warm Douglas fir floors, every room embodies the old style energy of what a beach house is all about.

A beach house is not a beach house without the beach, and this house delivers with 25 short steps to the sand and sit down water views from the first, second and third floors. This home has a strong water presence, improving after sunset as the night lights of Riviera Drive light up the waters of Sail Bay so you can enjoy the warm summer evenings on the third floor deck.

You will be coming in off the beach early to enjoy this classy old style home. The kitchen is one of the most beautiful kitchens we have seen. Yes, we know it’s ours, but just take a look at the pictures.

You will be coming in off the beach early to enjoy this classy old style home. The kitchen is one of the most beautiful kitchens we have seen. Yes, we know it’s ours, but just take a look at the pictures. We’re not sure if it’s the open beam ceiling, the warm colors, the lighting or the mix of materials, but it’s got a special energy that will keep you home for dinner instead of going out. It’s just too easy to open a bottle of wine and toss some fish or steaks on that huge Viking grill and relax and maybe pop in a movie on that 50” plasma screen. Don’t worry about leaving to find a movie; there are over 100 DVDs in the case under the home theater system. If some fun family time is desired, we have an outstanding collection of Board Games.

The house has two small cottage style bedrooms on the first floor, each has a Queen bed with a full bed on top (updated from the pictures). Each of the rooms sleep 4 comfortable for a total of 8. If you want the Full Beds can be raised to the ceiling and out of the way. Also a large office has 2 twin air matresses for your use, so really 3 bedrooms downstairs. Vintage Nantucket beach houses were well known for there funky little sleeping rooms and more extravagant quarters for the masters of the house. These rooms have an office area with a computer and printer for your use. The computer is hardwired to the internet with wireless broadcasting from the second floor. The first floor bath is beautifully appointed with hot water fed from a tank-less water heater. There is a two car side by side garage with laundry on the first level.

Off the front of the home is an outstanding large deck with a BBQ along with tables to sit up to 12 people. Great views of the Bay are available.

The second floor is home to the living room with fireplace, dining room, family/TV area, adjoining kitchen and a beautiful powder room finished in classic cottage style. The living room has large French doors on the second floor deck that open out, joining the living area to the covered balcony. There is no shortage of space or seating with plenty of room for everyone to find their own personal favorite place to sit and relax. Also included on the second floor is a Queen size air-dream pull out sofa. If you have never slepted on the air-dreams you are in for a treat and you just may be fighting to use the second floor pull out for your sleeping quarters.

The third floor houses the master suite with cathedral ceilings, huge dormer windows, desk area, beautiful window seat (sleeps one person if needed) and a great master bath with huge skylights to let the summer sun inside. A few steps from the master is a powder room that serves the master as well as guests on the large roof deck

About The Owner


I have spent 12 years of my professional career outside of the United States. Most recently 7 years in Europe. With all this time abroad, I have learned an appreciation for what is desired when traveling. I attempt to bring this through in my rental home.

The Owner purchased this house in 2009

Why The Owner chose San Diego County

After traveling the world I came to understand one thing, San Diego is one of the best places in the world to live and visit. This home is in one of the best locations you will ever find with both the bay and ocean available for your use. It did not seem fair to keep the home for my private use and not share it with others. This is the reason for providing the home as a vacation rental.

What makes this house unique

This is not only a rental, it is my pride and joy. We have so much more than any other property you will find and this is highlighted through the guest comments. We want nothing more than to ensure your experience in our home is one to remember. This is the only vacation home we have and when it is not rented out, it is used by myself and friends/family.


Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

Nantucket Style Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Everything you could ask for in a rental. Great location, great kitchen and lots of space. Beaches, shops and places to eat all within very short walks. Extremely clean and well stocked with towels, beach toys and area information. Super place for kids and adults alike. Highly recommend this house for your next vacation!

Plenty of sleep space and beach toys

  • 5 of 5

We were a large group of adults who stayed at this property. We had enough space for all of us and actually had some more to go around. We enjoyed the outdoor patio options and the beach supplies provided. The kitchen is awesome. The commercial grade range is fun to cook with. The space is slightly smaller than the impression the photos give, but still plenty of space for everyone. We had a great stay! thanks!

Nice house with great location

  • 4 of 5

We've rented this house at the last minute due to changes in our plans. The owner of the house responded to our requests quickly. We arrived to the house we did not have anybody to greet us there. The key was in the lock box. With a quick phone call we were able to obtain the key and let ourselves into the house.

It is less than one block from the bay beach and two blocks from the ocean. Groceries for a short walk down the road and they were excellent places to eat within short distances. We said four days at this house when my wife and my two children. The price was very appropriate. The house definitely could accommodate more people. If somebody were to entertain at this house it would be a great house for entertaining people.

There's been a couple weeks now and we have not received our security deposit although we did all the laundry, dishes and removed the garbage prior to leaving. Other VRBO properties that I have rented over the last 15 years have been a little more punctual with this aspect. Assuming everything else goes as expected this would be a property that we would consider renting again. Definitely appeals to those people who like nicer accommodations.

Beach, Beach, and More Beach!!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and three children's families stayed here for a week. Eight adults and three children, fit nicely into the house with one couple sleeping on the sofa beds. The two bottom bedrooms were tight but easily slept two adults and two kids. The second floor was wide open and allowed everybody to dine and visit together. The third floor master bedroom was awesome and had it's own deck. The beach and bay were very close, restaurants and stores within walking distance. We would defintiely go again!!

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Todd's house for 5 days with 3 families (9 kids ranging from 21 to 12). Although the two rooms on the bottom floor were a bit small (but totally manageable), the rest of the house is AWESOME!!! Less than 50 meters to the Bay and 1,000 meters to the could not have asked for a more perfect location.

The house is VERY WELL stocked with plates, utensils, pots pans...plenty of bedding and maybe most importantly...BEACH GEAR!!! A standup paddle board, a 1-man kayak, tons of umbrellas, beach chairs and much more...don't forget about the 6-7 beach cruisers as well.

The second floor is where we hung out when we weren't at the beach...huge dining room table, great kitchen, 2- "living spaces" (this is where 5 of the kids slept). Plenty of space for adults and kids.

Just a great family spot and a GREAT HOUSE...we will be back!

Comfy home and great location!

  • 5 of 5

My group very much enjoyed its stay at this house. The location is perfect--close to the water and walking distance to a lot of cute local cafes and coffee shops. The house was clean and homey--it did not feel like a sterile rental, but also, it was not crowded with personal knick-knacks. Also, the rooftop patio was great--it has water views and is a nice place to get some evening fresh air. The owner was easy and pleasant to deal with as well. I would very much recommend this house.
