Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms + 1 sofa/Convertible bed, 3 Bathrooms (Sleeps maximum 8)

Located on the boardwalk upstairs of the castle, the Hamel's Castle, this oceanfront luxurious unit has been remodeled to a 3BR/3BA apartment in 2012. It has a spacious 440 sq ft furnished terrace and breathtaking views. The location by itself is priceless. The apartment is right at the board walk and a couple steps away from the famous Belmont Park. There are retailers downstairs and many shops around, bars, restaurants, pizzerias, etc. Subway Food and Starbucks are on the corner, and much more in the Bay area. Downtown San Diego is easy to reach from here by car (15 minutes) and so are most of San Diego's attractions such as Sea World (5 minutes), Legoland (30 minutes)and the San Diego Zoo (20 minutes) on light traffic day.

This comfortable 1,950 sq ft luxurious apartment offers everything you need for a great escape right on the beach. You will enjoy the nicest appointments, romantic getaways, or just the beach atmosphere in the beautiful Mission Beach in San Diego. The apartment has been remodeled and upgraded in June 2012. The apartment features a fully equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances, slab granite counters, pantry room and designer finishes throughout. There are plasma TVs in every room - including one of the bathrooms. The living room area opens up to a spacious private balcony on the 1st floor that offers lots of seating, gas BBQ, home theater stereo in-out doors, and the beautiful ocean view. The main bathroom was remodeled in 2014 and now offers a tub/shower. Washer and dryer in-unit.

Sleeping arrangements include one king bed and two queen beds plus a pull out queen sofa in the living room. This unit is ideal for up to 8 people. No private parties with more than maximum occupancy is allowed in the unit.

There is a designated parking spot detached from the building (about 150-200 feet away) for 1 large car or 2 compact cars, but lots of parking spaces surrounding the area - one handicapped parking across the street. We provide linens and towels, beach towels, beach toys and umbrella, chairs and complimentary discount vouchers from retailers downstairs. WiFi-Internet is provided with no extra cost to you - bring your laptop! Our home system allows music in the balcony and TV or DVD at the family room. There is one portable A/C in the living room and one portable A/C in one of the bedrooms. (Wall A/C units are under repair).

There are security cameras surrounding the building, Verizon antenna and power generator in the building.

Total space ( including the balcony) is around 2,300 sq ft. Not pets allowed!

Here are some details about Mission Beach and surrounding areas to help you with your decision to stay in Mission Beach:

Mission-Beach is a San Diego favorite among locals and visitors alike. It lies between Mission Bay and the Pacific Ocean and has nearly two miles of beautiful white sandy beach. The area is filled with pastel colored houses, condos, old style cottages, beach apartments and hotels. The colorful Boardwalk at Mission Beach runs for three miles ending north of Pacific Beach and is always filled with bicyclists, runners, skateboarders and rollerbladers, and has designated lanes for walking. You can engage in people watching and sunbathing on Mission Beach, or the more strenuous activities of swimming, surfing, body boarding and kayaking. The southern part of Mission Beach is known for its' beach volleyball. To the east lies Mission Bay, which contains two islands with many coves and inlets, and has a large marina for pleasure boaters, and facilities for picnics, camping and fishing. One special point of interest at Mission Beach is Belmont Park, once the site of an amusement park that now is home to shops and restaurants, and a completely restored roller coaster. This 73 foot wooden roller coaster called the 'Big Dipper' was built in 1925, closed in 1976 and reopened in 1990. Everything is convenient for visitors to Mission Beach; just two blocks east are coffeehouses, fast food, taco shops, ethnic food or fine dining. Bicycles and in-line skates are both available for rent on the Boardwalk right below our Vacation rentals which is located inside a Mission Beach historical landmark: The Hamels Castle!

Note: Mission Beach is also known as the place for young groups; if you are noise sensitive you probably should research more before making a commitment to stay in this area. We are in the middle of the action. I am not kidding!

Surrounding areas: Mission Bay, California (0.6 mi), Pacific Beach, California (1.3 mi), Bay Park, California (2.7 mi), Ocean Beach, California (2.7 mi), La Jolla, California (4.4 mi), San Diego, California (6.1 mi), Point Loma, California (6.8 mi)

For more available dates and rates, please inquire with owner. We will be looking forward to talking to you soon!

Great location but sleeps less than 8

  • 4 of 5

I loved the property and location. Great times and nice set up. Very clean. It does not sleep a true 8 people, though. We made it work with the coaches and blow up air mattresses. It should advertise as sleeps 3-6 (1 king and 2 queens) with couch and blow up mattress options for up to 8.

The castle was perfectly placed in the middle of everything

  • 4 of 5

We would like to stay again. Everything you could need is just a short distance away. There is a gift shop located below the unit that has bike rentals for an awesome price, the Belmont (like a mini carnival) is right next door.

The unit is very nice inside, perfect for our family.

Awesome, fun beach location! Perfect for families and grilling outdoors

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful place for family vacation; would have been fun for just adults too! Great jogging and restaurants/activities; close to the zoo also. Kids loved the roller coaster and rides in the "back yard". Highly recommended

The location by itself is priceless. The apartment is steps away from the famous Belmont Park, there are retailers downstairs and many shops around, bars, restaurants and much more in the bay area.
