Mission Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

You will love the comfort of our beach home. This is not a condo or town home. It is a large home (1,775 sf) in a great part of Mission Beach that we bought because of its great location, large floor plan, nice bedrooms, garage, in unit washer/dryer, and most of all, closeness to the Bay and ocean, restaurants and numerous activities of Mission and Pacific Beaches!

Our house has tile and wood floors through out. 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, 1 on each floor, provide lots of privacy and make it perfect for several couples, a couple of families or an extended family. Two families can easily share this house with queen bed on the 1st floor and queen bed and en-suite bathroom on the 3rd floor. The 2nd floor has a bedroom with a full size bed along with an extra long and deep queen pull-out sofa bed in the living room. There are two extra twin beds available in the master suite (full size twin bed best suited for kids, but have been used by adults).

We have done our best to provide full amenities - towels, linens, beach towels, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, beach cruisers, fully equipped kitchen, bar-b-q, fire pit - everything that we have thought that you figured that you needed to haul along with you on your vacation, and perhaps more.

2 car garage is a GREAT amenity for the beach, as well as our in-home washer and dryer. The entire house was remodeled and updated in September of 2011 including brand new furniture inside and out, and appliances all updated since then. We bought a new queen sleeper sofa June, 2016.

Being so close to the ocean, the bay, restaurants, shopping and every type of water and land sport makes it so comfortable and relaxing. You can walk or ride bikes to nearly anything you may want to do. With the bike and walking paths around the bay and along the beach, there is really no need to take your car out of the garage once you arrive. We provide 5 beach cruisers with locks and there are 2 bike rental shops less than 1 block away.

Have breakfast at The Mission Cafe on Mission Blvd is a must. Or a great morning walk to the historic Crystal Pier and you can enjoy Kono's Cafe for breakfast or lunch. Walk to World Famous, Guava Beach, Single Fin, The Local, the Cabo Beach Cantina for great dinners and watch the sunset. Catamaran Resort and Spa is a short walk away if you want to workout in the gym or enjoy the spa and be pampered.

Golf? Catch a quick 9 holes of golf on the Mission Bay Golf Course (3 miles away) or drive up the coast to the famous Torrey Pines Golf Course (10 miles away, 36 holes on North and South courses and home of 2008 U.S. Open). Riverwalk and Presidio Golf Courses are only a few minutes away.

During the summer, watch the fireworks at Sea World every night from the 3rd floor balcony or sit on the sand on the bay. Visit Humphrey's by the Bay for an outstanding outdoor concert. Jump on the bikes to visit JRDN at Tower 23 - one of the nicest restaurants in the beach area - or Cass St Bar and Grill or The Fishery, or visit any of the great spots on Garnet Ave for shopping and great fun bars / gastropubs / restaurants.

Perfect location for riding your bike along the beach or around the bay, or take a walk and enjoy a sunset. Great front yard for bar-b-ques and just relaxing from a long day of activities.

About Tim & Jann

Tim was born and raised in San Diego, graduating from San Diego State while living in Mission Beach. After living around the country for several years, training for the US National and Olympic Rowing Team he returned to Southern California and S.D., living in Mission Beach and Pacific Beach.

Jann also traveled and lived in many places as well. A native of SF she has always loved San Diego. When she and Tim got married they built a beautiful home in Pacific Beach with views of the ocean and bay but always wanted to live on the water. Our jobs took us to Newport Beach in 2007 but we have always wanted to move back to the San Diego beach life style which is so unique, inviting and relaxing.

Although we travel a lot we always come back to San Diego. This is the home that we plan to retire to someday. Retirement is still a few years away for us, but in the meantime we are happy to offer and share our lovely home to those who love or want to experience living at the beach.

Tim & Jann purchased this house in 2011

Why Tim & Jann chose San Diego County

When Jann met Tim, he lived in Mission Beach. When she moved to live in San Diego, she loved the beach and the lifestyle. We built a beautiful home in Pacific Beach near Mount Soledad and La Jolla and the beaches.

We moved to Newport Beach for Jann's promotion a few years ago. We enjoy Newport Beach but when we started to talk about where we would like to live when we retire someday, our thoughts immediately turned to returning to and living in Mission Beach and once again enjoy living the beach lifestyle that we loved.

This is the house that we will plan to return to live someday. We love the outdoors and this location definitely provides that. The access from this location to the beach and bay are unsurpassed. The activities of the area are limited only by your energy and imagination. Or simply sit down, relax and enjoy the peace and serenity of the bay, or the energy and activity of the beach. And there really is nothing like a sunset on the Pacific Ocean.....

What makes this house unique

A great house in a great location (!!!) in Mission Beach just steps to the sand. We receive many great comments from our tenants about the location of the house, as well as the house accommodations. We lived in the house for the first month while we remodeled and loved every minute of it and spend time in the house a couple of times during the summer ourselves. We have built two homes from the ground up. Jann loves decorating and did a wonderful job decorating this house, again adding to the comfort you will experience in this home.

So many things to do! Mission Bay Sport Center and the Catamaran Resort and Spa are both a short walk away and have every water craft or water toy you could want - sailboat, catamaran, SUP, kayak, jet pack - you name it! The Catamaran Resort and Spa is a full service spa with a great fitness center that looks out onto the Bay. We have provided 5 new beach cruisers and there are two great bike rental shops that are less than 1 block away.

Great access and easy walking distance to restaurants and things to do. World Famous, Single Fin, The Local, Guava Beach Bar and Grill, Cabo Beach Cantina are all walking distance. The list of restaurants within riding bike distance is too long to list here.

If you have a special event (besides vacationing in our house) - a party , a wedding, a reception, an anniversary party - and need a special place to rent for the occasion, ask Tim about the Garty Family Pavilion at the San Diego Rowing Club for more information.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Last minute rental. Were fortunate to find this house. Large and comfortable and great location. 3 BR's and 3 BA's on 3 floors was perfect for combination of adults and kids. House could just as easily accommodate 3 couples.

Had previously stayed on the beach side of Mission Beach and it was a bit busy and noisy for liking. This house is 2 doors from the Bay which was wonderfully peaceful, but still only 1 block from the ocean, so the beach and ocean were still conveniently close.

Family enjoyed the amenities of the home and the variety of activities mentioned that were available in the area was no exaggeration.

There has obviously been a lot of work put into setting up the house to comfortable for their guests.

Will definitely look forward to visiting here again next year.

Perfect location, Perfect house!

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from a week spent in Mission/Pacific beach. Can not say enough great things about this house and the owners as well. The house was exactly as described and looks exactly like the pictures. We have stayed in many vacation houses where things definitely did not live up to expectations, but this house did not disappoint. The space is perfect for multiple families. We had 2 families with small children and everyone fit comfortably. They have every single beach item you could want, from towels, to toys, even a wagon for carting it all to the beach. The beach cruisers were a great bonus to have as well. The location on the bay side is perfect for little kids and is much quieter than the beach side, however, the beach is also just a short walk away. So close, we could easily run back to the house for snacks/bathroom breaks, etc. When we arrived, there were a few minor repairs that were needed (nothing that HAD to be done), and Tim and Jann were immediately responsive and had the repairs completed the next day. I have never worked with owners who were so responsive and available. It really made our vacation that much better. We will definitely try to return here next year.

Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful San Diego/Mission Beach! Our family was so comfortable in this lovely vacation home! The kitchen had everything we needed to make our meals at home. The pots and pans where a big thumbs up from our family cooks. Fans, of which there were plenty, helped cool down the home during the hot part of the day and cool delightful breezes did the job starting at sunset. Big hit were the bicycles! One was flat when we first arrived but a call to the owner fixed that in about a couple of hours! House is close to everything you will need for your stay. We can't say enough about this wonderful house and city!

Awesome Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at several different locations on Mission Beach over the past 10 years and this house was the best!! Three levels provided privacy for each family, and the patio was so perfect for morning and evening relaxing. VERY short walk to bay and beach. We were completely surprised at all of the included items. In the past, we have had to bring soap (dish, laundry and bath) paper towels and toilet paper, kitchen bags and wraps, etc... but in this house EVERYTHING was provided! Also the 5 bikes came in very handy for short runs to the store and restaurants and for rides down to Belmont Park. Lots of beach toys, beach towels, and they also provided propane tanks for both the BBQ and the fire pit. We have had to do that ourselves in the past. Tim and Jann answered all of our questions quickly. We had such a wonderful time and would certainly recommend this house to anyone looking for an awesome stay on Mission Beach.

Perfect for a 30th wedding anniversary celebration!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience to rent a home for vacation and we were a little unsure about what to expect. Everything was exactly as it was presented in the listing and we couldn't have been more pleased with our experience! Tim and Jann sent lots of information in advance of our stay as well as answering emails and even calling us to be sure we had our questions answered. We knew we would be doing some cooking and were pleased to find everything we needed to prepare and serve meals. We ate every meal out on the beautiful front patio. The location of the property was perfect - so close to the bay side for the little ones and a few short blocks from the ocean for the "big kids." We had toys, boogie boards and plenty of beach equipment (chairs, towels, umbrellas) that made our beach experience complete. The house is also just 10 minutes from Sea World and 3 minutes from Belmont Park.

Shortly after we arrived, Jann called to let us know that they had a friend who had a crib we could borrow (she remembered an earlier conversation we had about bringing our grandchildren with us.) We didn't need the crib but I was so impressed that she was anticipating our needs. A few days later I inquired about a vacuum we could use to tidy up. Jann called back and said she had ordered one and it was on its way. The next day it showed up on the patio - now that's customer service!

We highly recommend this property and appreciate all the attention to detail that Tim and Jann provide, especially for us first-timers. It was a magical trip we'll never forget!
