Overview

Mission Beach House Rental Photos and Description

Five Stars! Steps to beach & bay, cozy 2br unit sleeps up to 8

The Space

Thanks for viewing the Surfcomber II, our ideally located top floor 2 bedroom, 1 bath unit with partial bay views, new furnishings, high quality bedding, brand new HDTVs in EVERY ROOM with free Hulu, Netflix and more! All three of the Surfcomber units are in Airbnb's top 10 for Mission Beach (#2, #3 & #7) and have more positive reviews than any triplex in San Diego.

Perks? Who doesn't like free perks...and we love our guests so we offer more than any rental in San Diego.

- Bottle of wine? Done, will be there when you arrive.

- Need a Bike or Board? No problem, all stays come with a free rental at Ray's Rentals on the corner, plus we have boogie boards and beach chairs you can use too.

- Tickets to Belmont Park? Sure, all stays (over $999) receive a complimentary child Sea World Ticket.

- Pizza Night? Good call, let us know what you want and I'll have a couple delivered to your door on me!

- The Basics? Of course...we've got coffee, wifi, hulu+, netflix, a fully stocked kitchen, etc.

You have a perfect view of the Sea World fireworks from outside your door or on the patio or just stroll to the sand a couple steps each night (quite a treat!) We also have 2 other units on the same property that can be combined to hold up to 16 people.

The Surfcomber II is incredibly located in the heart of Mission Beach, just steps to the relaxing bay and a block to the beach!

This 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom unit is located on the top floor of a duplex. Wi-Fi included. Ample free parking available nearby, or you can have one dedicated, reserved parking spot on location for an extra fee of only $15 per night or $200 a month. The spot will fit a sedan-sized car, but SUVs will be too large.

The two bedrooms are equipped with brand new, top of the line mattresses, cozy down comforters and high thread count linens. We can make available an additional twin size air mattress, a queen air mattress and a couch. This means you could feasibly sleep 8 and several have. Please use your judgment about whether that will work for you.

The bathroom includes soft towels, shampoo, conditioner and body wash. The kitchen has a gas stove, microwave, refrigerator, oven, and coffee maker. There are plenty of dishes, cooking utensils, pots and pans, too. Every room has a large flat screen Sony Bravia TV with Roku internet TV player (free Netflix, Hulu Plus, etc.).

The large patio in front of the unit comes with comfy lounge chairs, a dining table, partial bay views and a propane BBQ. The coin laundry room has complimentary detergent. This Mission Beach property is ideally located so you're close to restaurants, bars and activities, yet tucked away far enough so you don't hear the noise.

You will be a three minute walk to the beach/ocean, where you can relax in the sand, surf, or just enjoy the gorgeous sunset every night on the boardwalk. There are plenty of restaurants, bars, and shops along the boardwalk. Along the short walk to the beach you'll run into Belmont Park, the beachfront amusement center, which has the famous Giant Dipper Roller Coaster.

For a more serene experience, you are three houses from the tranquil bay front. Take a stroll while watching the sail boats go by or try something new, like a stand up paddle board lesson. There is a rental company right around the corner which also offers scuba diving lessons, too.

You can also walk on over to the Bahia Resort and hop on the Bahia Belle, one of the oldest paddle wheeler boats on Mission Bay, and ride it to The Catamaran for dinner. Kids LOVE riding the Bahia Belle. The boat runs on Fri & Sat starting at 6:30pm and goes until midnight.

The Surfcomber II is also a short drive to Sea World (6 min), the famous San Diego Zoo or Balboa Park (10 min) which has 17 museums, beautiful gardens, and performing arts venues. You're also not far from the airport or downtown Gaslamp area (10-15 minutes).

RATES ARE HIGHER DURING PEAK SUMMER MONTHS. DUE TO COMPLAINTS FROM OUR OTHER UNITS, WE ARE FOCUSING OUR RENTALS ON GROUPS WITH CHILDREN ABOVE THE AGE OF 3.

I'm an experienced, positively-reviewed host on Airbnb. Please check out the reviews for my other listings to get a feel of what guests have been experiencing at the Surfcomber units. Feel free to contact me directly for more information.

Thanks!

The Neighborhood

One of the absolute best locations in all of San Diego. Mission Beach is close enough to the craziness of Pacific Beach yet has a more beachy, vacation feel. Vacationers come to Mission Beach year round for so many reasons!

About Ryan Scott - Owner, Surfcomber Vacation Rentals

I'm a very experienced owner/manager with multiple listings in San Diego on Homeaway and Airbnb. I can fill any size group so just ask.

I've wanted to live in a great property in a great part of San Diego and owning a multi-unit vacation rental made it financially feasible. That's where it all started and happy guests and owners have helped it grow. Long term, I want to provide my family and other families with the type of family vacations we enjoyed in Ventura County every Thanksgiving of my childhood. My units are great for that and many have enjoyed it as such already.

Why Ryan Scott - Owner, Surfcomber Vacation Rentals chose San Diego County

I've wanted to live in a great property in a great part of San Deigo and this makes it financially feasible.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We stayed at Ryan's 2br unit in Mission Beach and had a great time, especially since it is priced below all the vacation rentals in the area. It comfortably fit 6 and we were able to sleep 8 with an air mattress. The location is perfect, steps to Mission Bay and across the street Mission Beach, the Wavehouse, Rollercoaster. The beds and bedding are super comfortable and you can tell the mattresses are higher end. We enjoyed BBQing on the huge patio. Would definitely stay again!

This is a must place to stay if visiting San Diego

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect place to stay if visiting San Diego! The location is amazing and the staff was wonderful to work with! The place was extremely clean and has everything you need to enjoy on your vacation by the beach, bay, or whatever you're doing in San Diego.

Clean and fully functional unit, great location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is clean and fully functional. My group has 5 adults and 1 kid, and we enjoyed a comfortable stay in San Diego. The neighbourhood is quite and friendly, and the community is safe. The location is especially great. It is only a few seconds walk to a small and beautiful bay, and 3 mins walk to great beach view of pacific, where we can enjoy sunset moment. Only 10~15 mins drive to San Diego Seaworld. The parking lot has limited size, and the street parking is difficult. However, after consulting with the owner, there is a free parking lot about 5 mins walking distance away, which resolves my only concern within the stay. Overall, 5 star!

我是来自北京的游客。这间公寓干净整洁,且功能齐备。我们一行共有5个大人,一个小孩,感觉居住非常方便。邻居很安静,小区也非常安全,没有什么闲杂人员。地理位置非常优越,往东几十米就是一个小海湾适合晨跑,往西不到200米就是美丽的mission beach,非常适合发呆和看日落:) 去圣地亚哥海洋世界也很近,开车十来分钟,我们甚至考虑走路过去,后来担心玩了一天太累作罢。公寓自带的停车位有点小,我们的大车停不了,街边停车也很困难。后来咨询了主人以后,边上宾馆附近就有一个免费的停车场,走路5分钟到,解决了我们一个大难题。总体来说,物有所值,5星评价!

Just what we needed for a vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a last minute vacation to beat the heat with our 3 year old and we're glad we found this place. Ryan was really responsive during booking and while we were staying at the rental. The location was perfect for waking up and walking to the bay to play or going to the beach side. We also enjoyed being able to walk to Belmont park or the Mission Bay park. The beds were comfortable, which is something that's really important to us. The rental is cozy and quiet and had the essentials for our stay. I recommend paying for parking spot, it just makes things easier. Thanks Ryan for your help!!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review! Me and my work hard for our guests and seeing feedback like this is a major part of the reason. Anyone can be happy in a mansion, but Surfcomber II is a reasonably sized 2br/1ba condo that we've tried to optimize even for large groups like yours. I fully understand it was a bit tight, but I'm so glad that your large party was satisfied and thought it was a 'great value'. Hopefully we'll see you again soon. Safe travels! Cheers, Ryan Owner - Surfcomber Vacation Rentals

Beautiful Location on Mission Bay and Beach

  • 5 of 5

I have to say, this place was by far the best place to stay!! The place was so clean and comfortable. The patio was AMAZING!! Gas firepit and BBQ was spotless! I would recommend this place to all my friends. The bay is two houses away and Mission Beach is just one block away. Again, AMAZING place to stay in San Diego. Love it! Thank you Ryan for everything.

Incredibly located right in the heart of Mission Beach, steps to Bay and a block to the Beach! Property is a 2br, 1ba unit on top floor of duplex and I have a 1br/1ba on the same lot that is available. There is a large patio in front of the duplex with partial bay views and a BBQ available. Community coin laundry room available for the property. Property is located about a three minute walk to the ocean front and just three houses off of the bay front. The property is just a block from Belmont Park, the heart of Mission Beach, easily walking distance to the Wave house, the roller coaster and all the excitement, yet just far enough to not hear the bars.

Property is located about a three minute walk to the ocean front and just three houses off of the bay front. A few short steps and you will be relaxing on the tranquil bay, watching the sail boats go by. The bay is a great place to arrange for a stand up paddle board lesson. There is a rental company right around the corner which also offers scuba diving lessons too. You can also walk on over to the Bahia Resort and hop on the Bahia Belle, one of the oldest paddle wheeler boats on Mission Bay and ride it to The Catamaran for dinner. (kids LOVE riding the Bahia Belle) The boat runs on Fri & Sat starting at 6:30pm and runs until midnight. This condo is also within a short drive to Sea World (10 min) , San Diego Zoo or Balboa Park (20 min) and more.
