About Shirley Rast - Owner/Manager
I have my own property in Mission Beach and manage this beautiful building. I love the area and know how important it is to find a well cared for, well equipped, and clean property in an exceptional and quiet location in Mission Beach. Please feel free to call to discuss this property. We also have the three bedroom, 2.5 bath on the ground level available as a rental on this same site -#265413.
Why Shirley Rast - Owner/Manager chose Mission Beach
Beauty on the beach. This property is one of the very nicest properties in Mission Beach. We invite you to view the map. This is a prime area of north mission beach...bay front. You can see how close you are to the ocean side, yet right on the beach on the quieter bay front location. It is very important to have a location on the beach, bay front that has close and easy access to the ocean side. You can literally walk to the ocean boardwalk in about 2 minutes. Feel free to call for the exact address to google map it. It is also close to restaurants and shops that you can easily walk to. For recreation just outside your door, you have miles of flat boardwalk for walking, jogging, roller-blading, or skateboarding. The boardwalk borders the beach so you never leave the beach when on the boardwalk. The boardwalk curves away from this property allowing you some additional privacy. There is a beach volleyball net a few doors away for the public to enjoy. You can rent water sports equipment either at the Catamaran or the Mission Bay Aquatic Center...both just a short walk away. This bay is perfect for kayaking, paddleboarding or renting a small sail boat. You can play on the shore and build sand castles or swim. Just cross to the west for ocean activities....about a 2 minute walk to the ocean side boardwalk from the property. There is even a cross walk for crossing Mission Boulevard which is the main street that runs north and south right down the center of Mission Beach dividing the ocean side from the bay side. This property is also quiet and far enough away from Mission Boulevard which is important. We have many permanent residents residing next to and behind this building and they are very respectful and quiet. This is not a party area which is good for our guests. There are some nearby playgrounds for little kids as well. We have an outdoor community half basketball court and tennis court.
What makes this Condo unique
The board walk curves out away from this property allowing for a 'private sandy beach area' directly in front of this building. This building lot was very carefully chosen. There were actually two lots that had older homes that were demolished to allow enough space for the spectacular Villa Italia. Nothing was spared in the architecture and building of this masterpiece. Enjoy curved etched entry doors with decorative iron accents. The glass panels open to bring in the Pacific Ocean breezes. The floors are adorned with stone surrounded by smooth rounded walls, canned light throughout, granite in the kitchen as well as marble and stone in the baths. Each room has a flat screen television and the living room has a gas fireplace for those cozy fall evenings. It is hard to match the location, architecture, and overall beauty of this property.

Cleanliness overall could be better
Several items did not work properly
Thank you for taking the time to write a review.
I am so glad you liked the location. It is the absolute best. Could you please let me know anything that does not work because we want everything to work properly. We appreciate our guests passing that information on to us so that we can address it. If I get a call from guests with concerns during their stay, I answer immediately. I pass on any repair items to the owner and if something does not work, I will address right away.
I hope your family enjoyed the two paddle boards the owner shared with you and that you had a wonderful vacation with your family on Mission Beach.
Thank you again for choosing the property. It was a pleasure meeting you.
Furniture needs refreshing, carpets need to be cleaned, towels and throw rugs a little shabby and some of the linens were in need of replacement. The finishes in the home were very nice and floor plan was very functional. Location is wonderful.
Thank you for choosing the property.
I appreciate your input and have shared this with the owner. We did replace the twin sheets that you had mentioned to me. The carpets were cleaned in May and by the end of July, they need to be cleaned again. We have to wait for a break to do it, and coming soon. We have mostly porcelain tile on the floor, but have one area rug in the living room and carpet in three bedrooms. The entrance to the bedrooms seem to start showing as they are now.
The two love seats in the living room from Crate and Barrel are quite new, but the couch could certainly be refreshed. We are looking into that as well as replacing several throw rugs.
We do our best to maintain a high level of cleanliness. We have a rinse container for people to rinse their feet from the sand, but when you rent to 10 to 12 people in a unit, it is hard to avoid tracking in on the bottom of ones feet.
I can assure you that those things will be addressed as we very much appreciate your business and want you to have the most positive experience.
As you stated, the property is very spacious (2400 square feet) with a great floor plan and wonderful location. We will tweak a few things and again, appreciate your comments. We will work to earn your repeat business.
It has been a pleasure working with you.
Kindest regards, Shirl
Exploring San Diego
It was our first visit to San Diego and this property and location was perfect for the needs of our group of 6 adults and two children. Shirl was fantastic to work with and helped take a lot of potential stress out of our booking and stay.
Amazing property !
Fantastic location !! Beautiful views. Highly recommended
Thank you for taking the time to write a review.
I am so delighted that you enjoyed your stay and the property. I agree that the views are really jaw dropping.
We would love to welcome you back when your travels bring you back our way!
Thank you for choosing the property for your special stay, and we appreciate your business.
Perfect family vacation house
This house is absolutely accommodating for all your needs on a mission bay vacation. I frequent San Diego and this was the best trip yet. It is close to anything you may want to see or do. If you’re not in the mood to venture out the grand balcony is a great place t drink your coffee in the morning after a run, and an even better place to grill and eat dinner at night. Would definitely love to stay here again, the owner and property manager are wonderful people to work with and have gone above and beyond to ensure that your stay there is perfect.
We really enjoyed this property. My husband and I stayed with our daughter, son-in-law, and 3 young grandchildren. We had plenty of room for everyone. We loved the view of the bay and enjoyed the lovely balcony. Shirley was very friendly and cooperative. Biggest complaint was with parking. We had a minivan and smaller car. They both fit in the garage but the only person comfortable backing them in was our son-in-law.
This property is located in north Mission Beach and is right on the sand with panoramic views overlooking (Sail Bay). You are about 80 steps to the ocean which is across Mission Boulevard to the west of the bay side. Outdoor recreation paradise outside your door. Sail, kayak, swim, and paddle board on this expansive ocean bay right in front of your property. Walk out your door onto the beach and into the water. No vehicles drive in front of you, allowing endless panoramic views of this beautiful expansive Sail Bay. Unlimited opportunities for beach play, beach volley ball, sand castles, walking, jogging, biking, roller blading, skate boarding, or basking in the sun on the beach.
Ocean and ocean bay - best of both worlds: If you should desire experiencing the ocean side of Mission Beach, it is just a short 80 steps to the west. Close walk to restaurants and shops.
The bay has so many benefits. It is much quieter than the ocean side. It is nice to be in a quiet area so that you can sleep well at night and then enjoy ocean or bay side during the day.
Close to everything San Diego has to offer: You are about 15 minutes from San Diego, the San Diego World Famous Zoo, Balboa Park (with live theaters and museums), Old Town, Birch Aquarium, U.S.S. Midway Aircraft Carrier Museum, Mission Valley shopping centers, and the San Diego Int'l Airport. Sea World is about a 5 minute drive just across the bay and they have a firework display every night in the summer season and every Saturday night after summer that can be viewed from your patio....quite spectacular to see the sky light up just outside your private patio.
Location is key when choosing a vacation. This location has it all! You are close to San Diego in a beach paradise with ocean bay on one side and ocean just 80 steps to the west. You are in a quiet area with easy access to the busier ocean area.
Great for families and groups....so much to do in local area....something for all ages.

Restaurants: There are wonderful restaurants within walking distance of this property. San Diego and adjoining areas have great restaurants and all within about 15 minutes from this location.
