Mission Beach Condo Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Full Bath, Sleeps 2-3

This charming condominium, located at the southern tip of Mission Bay, has breathtaking views of both Mission Bay channel and the Pacific Ocean. You can watch the yachts and sailboats go by from your living room. There is a patio right outside your door with a hot tub, barbecue grill, lounge chairs, and dining tables. The condo has recently been remodeled and beautifully decorated with a focus on comfort and convenience. Full kitchen with top quality equipment for people who like to cook, and a Keurig for the coffee lovers. Granite counter tops, large luxurious walk-in shower, incredibly comfortable bed and furniture, and WiFi that works with a "smart" DVD player for netflix, pandora, and many other streaming services.. You have your own parking spot right in front of the building, and that's very important at the beach.

Mission Beach is the place to be for adults and children. You can cycle, walk, or roller blade for miles in either direction. Go surfing or Boogie boarding on the ocean side in the famous Mission Beach waves, or enjoy the wind free sandy beaches and calm waters on the Mission Bay side. Ride the famous Mission Beach roll-a-coaster and other Belmont amusement park rides. There are picnic areas and playgrounds steps from your door. You are minutes away from shopping, 17 museums at Balboa Park, Sea World, and the world famous San Diego Zoo.

Beach equipment available: Two beach cruiser bikes, boogie boards, beach chairs, a beach umbrella, beach towels, picnic tablecloth, and cooler.

We offer a personal Chef option for travelers who don't want to shop, prepare meals, or go out to eat, we can have everything prepared in advance to your personal liking by a nutritionist/chef. Cost varies.

About Tony and Suzanne Serafin

We admired this building when we moved to South Mission Beach 5 years ago. We love the location and the views are amazing. We use the condo for family several times throughout the year because our permanent residence is just two blocks away. Living so close is convenient for visitors as well since we are just moments away if you need anything. We can be found jogging, paddling, surfing or swimming throughout the neighborhood on a daily basis. There is no better area in San Diego.

Tony and Suzanne Serafin purchased this condo in 2015

Why Tony and Suzanne Serafin chose San Diego County

Why this property is a great choice for a stay boils down to two key reasons. First, the views of the ocean and channel are spectacular. Sitting at your dining table looking out at the channel you see every imaginable kind of boat go by, dolphins and sea lions playing in the channel, and it's such fun. The second reason to stay here is that the condo is just delightful. Everything is designed to be relaxing, comfortable, and easy for the renter.

What makes this condo unique

Mission Blvd ends at the North Mission Bay Jetty, All boat traffic in and out of the bay must travel through this passage. The condo is located in the perfect spot to watch the boats come and go. Beyond the jetty, you can see the classic Southern California surf spot of Ocean Beach and the OB Pier. This is a rare and spectacular San Diego view point.

Condo was in a great location with a perfect view of the bay.

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed out stay at the condo on Mission Bay. It was equipped with everything imaginable that could be used for activities, i.e. bicycles, beach chairs. It had a great parking space right in front of the gate and was easy to access with few steps. It was furnished very nicely, was very clean and well maintained. It had a lot of the condiments that were handy for making sandwiches, etc. The bed was very nice, towels were provided for the beach, iron and ironing board, extra pillows and ease in operating TV and DVD player, and even a pair of binoculars! A lot of DVD's were available for use. Location was very close to Sea World, Old Town and Balboa Park. The owners were very nice and helpful for any questions. We loved it!

Great Location...Great Price...Great People

  • 5 of 5

It was first time staying in a VRBO place and could not have been happier. My wife loved it. The view is great watching the ship go out in the morning with some coffee. The owners Tony and Suzanne helped us with whatever we needed and was very timely about it. Very sweet people. I would recommend to stay here and look forward to staying there again. We just love Mission Beach.

Nice homey condo with great view of jetty and passing boats.

  • 4 of 5

South Mission is a gem! It is the best that Mission Bay has to offer. We had a great time visiting for a family wedding in July ... Which is a very busy month. Condo was comfortable, clean with nice ammenities. Parking is tight. Used an Uber to get to and from the venue for the wedding at Liberty Square. Worked out great. Also, had a gathering for a small group in the common area at the condo. Used the barbeque and tables. Our family enjoyed walking to the ocean and walking on the bayside. Would like to return in Fall or Spring next time.

Well maintained condo with all the amenities we needed

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in Mission Bay. The condo was clean and well maintained, with everything we needed for the beach, the bikes, and the condo. From previous reviews we were aware of the "noisiness", but still slept well in a very comfortable bed. Also, a great location with a nice view of the channel and easy access to the walking/bike paths.

Great location! darling condo-really enjoyed our stay!

  • 4 of 5

The condo is darling, it looks like someone with an eye for design pulled everything together, loved the colors used, the bed is very comfortable. Everything was in perfect working order. Tony and Suzanne are very thorough. Be sure to read the notebook they provide as it will tell you everything you need to know. They didn't miss anything!! Loved having a Keurig in the kitchen too-nice perk. The recommendations for some of the restaurants were sure to check out Konas (worth the wait) for breakfast and we personally love La Playa Taco shop. Hole in the wall but where all the locals go. Other families in the complex were asking us questions and it was obvious that they didn't receive as thorough of instructions as we did. We have also done quite a few home away/VRBO vacations before and appreciated all the attention to detail that Tony and Suzanne have put into their unit. All the beach gear you need is there, including towels, chairs, boards, and there is a bike room with 2 bikes for you to use...very nice perk! This location is perfect, not on the main strip of everything. This condo is perfect for a couples getaway which is what our trip was about. Only thing that some people may not appreciate is that it isn't the most quiet of places we have stayed at before. There was no loud partying going on or anything like that, just people noise, families and people coming and going in the complex but because of the close proximity of each of the units to one another, unless you have every window and the door closed (and not optimal during the summer as you want that ocean breeze) you will hear people talking out in front of their units or in the jacuzzi or at the bbq area. At the same time, my husband being a social butterfly got to know almost everyone in the first 2 hours we were there and enjoyed being able to talk to others and find out where they were from, etc. so it is a matter of personal perspective and preference. Be sure you watch for the dolphins in the channel! we got several shows! really neat! enjoy your stay!

Lovely, cozy apartment across the street from the beach!

  • 3 of 5

Suzanne, who owns the property was very helpful & stayed in touch with us before, during & after our stay.


Great location, bay side better if you want a quiet beach experience.

Bikes included - great for exploring Mission beach!

Clean & comfortable apartment. Robes were a bonus, great shower & fans really cool you down after a warm day. Bed is very comfy. Kitchen is stocked with essentials. Nice views of ocean side of Mission Beach.

Sara's Mexican is a great taco stand nearby! Walking distance. A "locals" spot. We couldn't get enough!

Best for two people. More would be tight & cramped. There were two of us which was just right.


Very loud. Flight path right overhead. Noisy because you are on the 1st level & neighbors above & next door can be heard. Thin walls. Guests in building next door can be heard as well. Not totally private if you open the shades or the front door. Kind of exposed. We contacted Suzanne (owner) about the noise & she did as much as she could do. Not much that could be done.

The condo sleeps three - queen bed and twin mat. This condo is too small for four people to live in comfortably. There are several one bedroom rental units in our building and I would be happy to connect you with other owners if you have too many people to fit in my condo. Many times families rent more than one condo.
