Everything we needed and then some!!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time staying in the castle. The location could not have been better. It was very clean and updated. There were three bathrooms which makes it so nice for everyone to get ready in the morning. The balcony is large so there is plenty of room to hang out without feeling crammed in. The kitchen had everything we needed and then some. I can't wait to stay here again!

Amazing and Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We rented this condo the first week of Summer. The ease in which we rented this place was like no other. The contact person "Claudia" was so nice and acomidating. She responded to my questions in a timely manor and I had the place rented in 2 days.

Let me just say AMAZING! As we walked into this 3 BR/3 BA home, I immediately noticed how beautifully furnished it was. From the grannet counter tops to the bedrooms, even the showers were beautiful. It had a full kitchen, washer and dryer, wet bar, BBQ and a margarita maker to make those cold slushee drinks for the kids or adults. As I walked out to the huge private deck, I could see the entire beach and boardwalk. INCREDABLE! We were definitely the center of attention, felt like celebrities. There were outside speakers to listen to music and relax on the sectional patio furniture. While my teenage daughter and friends were on the beach, I could keep an eye on them from the deck. They provided sand toys, boogie boards, a wagon and towels. The location was the center of it all. Being right next to Brlmont Park and the Big Dipper Coster was so much fun for the kids, they were there everyday. Having the convenience of the surf and skate shop below was nice. We rented bikes for the boardwalk, surfboards and wetsuits too. The staff was friendly and helpful. We were able to pick up souvenirs and some cool shirts from the store next to the surf shop. Being there for a week we got to know some of the employees there. They recognized us as we walked by everyday and always said Hi. They made us feel like locals. We were only 5 minutes from Old Town and Sea World and 10 minutes from Downtown San Diego. It was awesome to wake up everyday, drink my coffee and see Dolphins swimming past before I took my morning jog on the beach, very cool. Everyone couldn't wait to get the day started. From surfing to riding bikes, being on the beach to Belmont Park, this vacation is one we will not soon forget. I will be making my reservation for next summer as soon as I get home LOL. Thank you all for an incredable experience. Hope to see you all next year.

Love this place!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the 3-bdrm apartment over Christmas. This was such a great place! The furnishings are wonderful, comfortable beds, etc. There wasn't anything that we lacked. It is such a great location. If you have kids of any age, they will love it. So many beach toys, etc., included with the rental. And even if you are all adults, it is still the perfect get away. You can watch all the activities on the beach and boardwalk, all from the comfort of the deck, and never get your feet sandy if you don't want to. There are many stores and restaurants close by. And Skyler and the employees in the stores are awesome! There is so much going on during the day, but it quiets right down at night and is very peaceful. I would recommend though that if you rent a bike, you return it to the store at night and then pick it back up the next day if you want it for several days. My son kept a bike, as he wanted to ride it later at night. He had it locked and behind a gate, which was also behind a locked gate, and it still got stolen. That was very disappointing and in hindsight, he should have turned the bike back in. But it was just a small blip on a wonderful week at The Hamels Castle!

Love The Castle

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for everyone. Our group included an infant, toddler, 10 year olds, parents and grandparents. The location was perfect. Having to run back 'home' for diaper changes was convenient as we were super close to Belmont, the wave house, a market, bars & restaurants. The house was great! Noise was not an issue. We slept better at the castle than we do at home. We were supplied with everything we needed and more. It was great to be able to do a quick load of laundry whenever needed or to grab a boogie board and head to the beach. It was so nice to be able to sit on the balcony with the baby and listen to music while grilling & watch the kids play with their grandparents on the beach. The castle has televisions in every room (bathroom included) which made the kids ecstatic. We each brought individual devices and were able to access wifi throughout our stay without issue. Downstairs gave surprisingly great bike rental discounts. We have zero complaints. Our stay was fantastic. We started planning our next visit the minute we had to drive away.

Owner's Response: Dear Sarah and Family, Thank you so much for your lovely review. I am glad to hear you and your family had a great experience in the castle, and I couldn't have asked for a better family to be there when the dishwasher started acting out. Although it seems to be a minor inconvenience, I really appreciated your understanding and the way you dealt with the issue. After the technical support visit, we ended up buying a new dishwasher for the unit. You are welcome to our place at anytime :)

Car: 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. Downtown San Diego is easy to reach from here (15 minutes by car) and so are most of San Diego's attractions such as Sea World and the San Diego Zoo.

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 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. 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 landmark: The Hamels Castle!
