About Ryan Scott

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 chose Mission Beach

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

Ryan's place was perfect, I stayed with three at her friends and we were very comfortable. Upon arriving to the property we had some issues but Ryan handled them immediately. Unit was one block from the bay and two blocks from the ocean, we loved the unit.

Dirty and not as described

  • 1 of 5

The photos make this unit look amazing contrary that what it really is. We arrived on Friday all excited (the location is great). The unit was very dirty - sink was soiled, stained and rusted, crumbs (pop corn, chips and other food) underneath the fold out couch in living room, no lounger as depicted, carpet dirty and patched, walls dirty, some light bulbs out, portable box fans were dirty, the coffee table had crumbs in between the glass, etc... - we purchased Lysol wipes and spent nearly an hour sanitizing the place before relaxing. This is probably one of the few listings that nickels and dimes you to death. There are extra charges for early check in (even though no one stayed before us and the place was so dirty, we should be reimbursed for the fees charged for having to clean). If any one wants to see photos, please message me. Parking is an additional $20.00 a day but will only work if you have a small sedan. No SUV or large vehicles. Laundry isn't free ($1.25 for washing and 0.75 for drying). Management was not very responsive took nearly 4-5 hours to get a text back. When I complained about the cleanliness of the unit, the owner wrote "it's an older unit". I don't know what that has anything to do with cleanliness. VRBO should refund my stay or give me partial credit for this horrific stay.

Excellent location , housekeeping should be reviewed .

  • 3 of 5

Excellent location. Generally happy , only comments would be housekeeping is not up to expectations. Items which should have been in place were not : no cooking pots present , Coffee maker had no urn , can opener did not function , several light bulbs burned out . Washing facilities on sight although house keeping had a habit of utilizing each machine & leaving the machines full for up to 2 days . Minor items which did not diminish the quality of our vacation , but would like to see rectified for our next stay .

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!!!

The place was perfect for us!

  • 5 of 5

Walking distance to mission beach, beautiful place with a beautiful patio where we could all eat. We were a group of 8 people it was a little small for all of us but it worked out great and cheap so it was actually perfect for us! Ryan, the host, was really helpful on every levels! Thanks for everything Ryan you were a great host!

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

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.
