Overview

San Diego County Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Your day begins with coffee on the bayfront balcony watching the sun rise over the boats in the Mission Bay Yacht Club gently bobbing just yards away. Make breakfast in the gorgeous kitchen as you decide your next move. This sparkling clean condo comes with new appliances including a dishwasher, smooth glass-top electric stove, oven, microwave, and a spacious French-door refrigerator with built in ice maker. The fresh ocean air, sand and placid waters of Mission Bay are just down the stairs or elevator.

The magnificent Pacific Ocean is just a 2-minute stroll from this beautiful retreat, as are boutique shops, restaurants, cafes, bars and the historic Big Dipper roller coaster in Belmont Park. The San Diego Zoo, Sea World, Balboa Park, Little Italy, the Gaslamp Quarter or La Jolla are all just a short drive away. Return to dinner grilled on the gas BBQ and enjoy the Pacific sunset, followed by Sea World fireworks in the summer, and the Sea World Christmas tree lights during the season. Catch programming from the dozens of channels on satellite TV, watch a DVD, access free Wi-Fi, then dream of another lazy beach day in one of the two bedrooms or on the queen sized inflatable bed. There’s plenty of room to stretch out and be very comfortable.

This freshly updated, spacious, non-smoking penthouse with new windows, floors, carpet, bathrooms and kitchen is in a small 5-unit complex with a neighborly feel. The balcony, living room, dining room and kitchen offer a panoramic floor-to-ceiling view of Mission Bay.

There are 2 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms, one with a bathtub. The master suite has a new mattress and box springs, dual sinks in the vanity and a beautiful brand new shower. The second bedroom has two twin beds and the bathroom with the bathtub is right across the hall. The convenient laundry room is just down the stairs, and there is one reserved, covered parking spot. Additional free public parking can be found on El Carmel Point, 5 buildings north of the condo.

About The Owner

This condo is our beach get-away. We looked for years to find it - a slice of heaven by the sea.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2009

Why The Owner chose San Diego County

The gorgeous, panoramic view and the feeling of serenity in this condo.

What makes this condo unique

The view, the beach vibe, being on 'the quiet side,' which is friendlier and more calm than the oceanfront. Walking to shops and restaurants, collecting shells, having the option of swimming in the bay or the ocean, etc., etc.!

A wonderful property with a beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

This bayside condo was perfect for our family get together. It's tastefully decorated, very clean and had plenty of space to accommodate our entire group! The location is fabulous too! There's a deck that overlooks Mission Bay to the east and the Pacific Ocean is just 2 blocks to the west. There are several very good restaurants and coffee shops within easy walking distance (our favorite was the Olive Café), along with many restaurants that will deliver. Ralph's grocery store, which is a major chain, is a quick drive from the condo. There are places to rent bicycles nearby as well as surfboard & boogie board shops too.

The condo is also well equipped with all kitchen amenities as well as games, books, extra towels and linens and a bbq grill. It even comes with its own parking stall, but on street parking right near the condo is easy to find too. The owners are very helpful if there's anything you have questions about.

We would highly recommend this property and we're looking forward to staying there again the next time we're in San Diego.

Ultimate San Diego Experience

  • 5 of 5

I must say I am not one to write reviews, but had to write one in this case. The minute I walked in the door to the condo, I immediately felt relaxed and at home. The floor plan is open and decorated in soft hues that bring the beach inside. It is very clean and the entire condo has been updated and feels more like staying at a resort than a condo. All the comforts of home were at your finger tips. The condo was furnished with comfortable furniture and beds, as well as an extension variety of cookware. I have to say it was great to cook a meal while looking out at the water and then dining on the balcony enjoying the birds and view. The sliding glass doors open to a balcony and a peaceful bay sparkles in the morning and becomes a beautiful portrait at sunset. The beach is a short 5 minute walk and we enjoyed a beautiful sunset each evening we were there. We strolled along the beach and discovered the Belmont Amusement Park was just a short stroll down the beach.

I would highly recommend staying here. It is located within a short distance to all the popular attractions. After a day of being a tourist it is so nice to come back and relax and enjoy the serenity of the condo and of course the balcony view. The only bad experience we had was not being able to stay longer! Definitely a 5 star plus place to stay.

Owner's Response: Wow! Thanks for your "5 plus stars" review, Nancy! We know how we relaxed we feel upon entering our condo, and it's so nice to know that you felt the same. Thanks also, for noticing all of the details we've recently upgraded, our convenient location, and finally, for leaving our condo in such beautiful shape. We really appreciate that, and hope you will return soon! Christie

Amazing Mission Beach condo

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this romantic place in Mission Beach. The view of the bay is stunning, particularly seeing the flocks of birds flying over the bay at dusk and boats bobbing in the harbor. Unlike other San Diego beaches, the scene here is calm and tranquil. We found a great breakfast spot nearby called the Olive Cafe and had delicious breakfast burritos sitting along the Pacific ocean which offers more gorgeous views. You also want to try to the Better Buzz Coffee - they have awesome honey lattes! The property is modern and feels like it has been recently updated with nice furniture and a new kitchen and bathrooms. Everything was super clean, and had lots of nice extras in the cupboards like games, paddle boards, books and more. We will definitely be back to enjoy another visit, and highly recommend it!

Owner's Response: Thank you, Colleen, for such a nice review. We're so pleased you enjoyed the same things we do about our condo and it's location. And, you're right - we have just updated our living room furniture! Thanks for being such thoughtful guests - we always appreciate when our condo is treated with loving care. We look forward to your next visit and may have a new game or two in our collection by then. Christie

Absolutely The Best

  • 5 of 5

This is our third consecutive stay at this beautiful Bayside Walk Condo and it just gets better each year and we've already made our reservations for next year. The location is perfect, great views of Missin Bay and a short walk to the ocean. The boardwalks are fun for walking, biking or whatever. You're a short distance to good restaurants, coffee shops and groceries. The condo is on the third floor of a 5 unit building with an elevator. Building scucutity is excellent and private parking is provided.

Now for the best part, the unit is beautifully updated including furniture. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you would ever need which make dining in fun.

Christie and Chuck have taken such great pride of ownership of their condo and they are wonderful to work with.

Great Location and Great Place

  • 5 of 5

I am local to SD, but got this for my brothers and Dad who were visiting. This place was everything it promised to be. Location was perfect as you can walk out your front door to be on the beach or bay in no time. There are many great food options along with Belmont Park nearby. The patio and view of the bay are great to wake up to. The kitchen is well stocked with supplies. TV had a good selection of channels that allowed us to relax at points. If I had any minor complaints it would be the comfort of the chairs/couches in the living room and the access being a bit of a pain with a small/old elevator and multiple keys needed to get in loading the house with all of your supplies was cumbersome. Very minor in the scheme of things though. Overall I'd recommend it to anybody.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review of our condo, Spencer. We're glad you enjoyed your family reunion by having your relatives stay at our place. We have just replaced the living room sofa and chair, so maybe they need a little bit more beach time to get relaxed, as seems to happen down there. Our homeowner's association is currently getting bids to refurbish the elevator too. We hope you visit us again.

Summer fun with a bayside view

  • 5 of 5

This condo was the perfect place to stay for our visit to San Diego!! The condo is beautiful, comfortable, and so nicely located in the heart of the Mission Bay area. It's also fully furnished with more than you need in the kitchen and bedrooms and plenty of beach toys! The view of Mission Bay from the balcony is so nice and my husband never tired of seeing the Sea World fireworks every night! The bayside boardwalk is right outside the door of the condo, while the ocean and boardwalk are pretty much right across the street. Restaurants and shops are a walk or bike ride away. Thank you so much, Christie and Chuck, for sharing your condo with us! We won't hesitate to rent with you again if it's available!

Owner's Response: Thanks, Vanessa, for such a nice review. I'm glad you found "more than you need" in our place! We've been working on stocking up so that you just need to bring your personal items for a great holiday. Do let us know when you are planning to come again - we offer our returning guests a bit of a discount! Christie
