Mission Bay and Mission Beach San Diego: Mission Bay is located just 40 steps from the house. There is a white sandy beach and a nice boardwalk for walking, biking and rollerblading.

There are may wonderful restaurants for breakfast lunch and dinner within walking distance! The Beach house will accommodate up to eight guests and is available year round as a vacation rental.

About Nancy's Vacation Rentals

We live in Palm Springs, but love every second we get to spend in our San Diego vacation home. It's always a treat, especially during summer when we get away from the heat and enjoy the cool ocean breezes.

Nancy's Vacation Rentals purchased this House in 2005

Why Nancy's Vacation Rentals chose Mission Beach

Mission Beach has miles of wide white-sand beach and beautiful Mission Bay, too. With San Diego's weather, what more could you ask for?

                                                              We loved our stay in Mission Bay! House was sufficiently appointed and perfectly located within the fun parts of Mission Bay. Just a few hundred yards walks to both Mission Bay and Pacific Ocean beaches, plus walking distance to grocery store and several coffee shops and restaurants. Nancy was responsive to any need/request (which were very few). We are definitely planning our return!

                                                              Perfect location!

                                                              Being just steps away from the beach, restaurants & entertainment was perfect! Also centrally located to all the major attractions in San Diego - easy 20 minutes to Zoo, Downtown, Aquarium. It's hard to find the first time... follow "Nancy's" directions exactly and you'll get there.

                                                              We had an amazing time! We could walk to the ocean or the bay, and relax in the sand. The street was quiet, with restaurants and shops close by. The house was well equipped with everything we needed.

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              Donna's Beach Retreat

                                                              Bob W.

                                                              Our family stayed in this beach retreat in mid May for our son's wedding. The home was perfect for us, a private bedroom and bath downstairs and upstairs two bedroom and bath for the three grandkids and their parents. The location is easy walking distance from many great restaurants and the boardwalk made any walk so enjoyable. The kids loved the beach and the sand toys. The kitchen has everything you need to cook meals if you want, we only really cooked breakfast or made sandwiches. Parking is a little hard to find at the beach so it was great to have the garage for one car. It was more quiet than in other homes we have stayed in on the beach side. We definitely will keep this house in mind for future San Diego visits.

                                                              5 star location; 3 star accommodation = 4 star

                                                              Glenda K.

                                                              We arrived at 1am due to delayed plane. The directions to this rental are AWFUL! We walked around for 25 mins to find it (it is down a street with no name, that is between a shop "Gone Bananas" and "The Mission" Cafe) (if you are staying here, USE MY DIRECTIONS!). The beds are a foam topper on top of a very very soft mattress. If you LOVE a soft bed, you will have no complaints. I do not. There are other cosmetic things that could be improved that I won't detail.

                                                              The location is PERFECT. Unless you want to pay at minimum twice as much, you won't get a better location. 5 stars for location. We had 3 kids under 10 so needed it to be a very short walk to everything. For coffee lovers, the cafe "The Mission" is 5 feet from your door! Great espresso coffee. We went mid April and weather was great. If it were any hotter, it would have been uncomfortable to sleep - bedrooms not air conditioned and tiny fans that were loud but not very cooling. If you like the heat, that's fine. We are from SD so prefer cooler. It was high 70s our entire stay so just perfect.

                                                              We rented a mini van and it JUST fit in the garage. I do not think a mini van and another car would fit at all. 2 smaller cars would probably fit.

                                                              The lounge and dining area is carpeted - so if you have MESSY eaters, you are going to be getting the clean carpet a mess! Eat outside I would suggest.

                                                              Amber M.

                                                              We loved the house. It is nice and the bedroom on bottom floor was nice for my parents. It is not as fancy as other beach houses but it's nice. The location is wonderful next to the bay and the beach and far enough way from the pier that we were able to avoid the spring break parting.
