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.

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.

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.

Fantastic Location and Great Accommodation!

  • 4 of 5

We booked this location for a weeklong, winter vacation and can't say enough about how much we loved the location and rental property. It is right on the South Mission Point only steps away from two beaches. We walked everyday down the beach, by parks, and to local businesses. It was also a great location to drive into San Diego; we never hit any traffic but of course it was winter. The rental is adorable and has everything you need and is very comfortable. The only disappointment was the lack of communication by the owners, hence the four stars. They never answered an email via the Home Away/VRBO app prior to our arrival (which was booked months in advance) and on the day of arrival we didn't know how to access the rental and didn't even have a phone number! We had to call Home Away which was a new experience for us (we have been doing vacation rentals for years) and were very pleased to find out their guarantee would assist us and find another location to stay if needed. They provided us with the owner's phone number and we left a message. During this time, a gentleman in the hot tub got out to try and assist us. It turns out he had rented our property the year before and said this was not the experience he'd had when he rented our unit the year before. He said the owners were very proficient. While I was speaking with Home Away on my phone my husband finally received a phone call from the owner on his phone. It turns out that there was miscommunication between us; she had sent arrival instructions that I had never received to my gmail account (It was not in junk mail. I had checked that prior to our arrival.) and the website did not have her contact information listed. After we finally did get in, the owners followed up with a call, sent the original email and stopped by one day. We then enjoyed our quiet week after a chaotic arrival. I find it interesting though that even when I sent thank you to their a personal email on our last day, I have never received a reply. Therefore, I'm not sure if she received it or just lacks common courtesy protocol. It doesn't take much to say a few words in an email so a rental party knows you received a message.

A nice escape to Mission Bay

  • 5 of 5

This one bedroom condo was so welcoming that walking into this place just made you want to relax. The owners, Suzanne and Tony, were super helpful during my stay and said I could contact them if I needed any questions. Make sure you read the binder they provide for you that contains helpful information about the condo (like how to operate the condo equipment, wifi password, condo furnishings, etc.). Everything was spotlessly clean and in perfect working order. The condo has a fantastic location (right next to the channel!) and less than a 5 minute walk or bike ride (they provide 2 bikes during your stay) to the boardwalk. From just sitting inside the condo you have a great view of the bay and I recommend that you should at least enjoy a cup of coffee or breakfast while looking at the bay (especially in the morning!!). The bed was super comfortable and lovely to sleep on. The kitchen had everything (pots, pans, knifes, etc.) I needed to make some casual meals. Overall, staying at the condo was amazing and is located in a great location. I enjoyed my mini getaway and didn't want to leave at all!

Lovely Beach Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Your nicely appointed, comfortable queen bed and blissfully wonderful and powerful shower made my stay memorable. The close proximity to the boardwalk was perfect for this avid runner and wave watcher. The binder was so useful and helped make my Mission Beach explorations easy and hassle-free. Thanks for everything! Chris from Ohio

This is a very comfortable condo. It really felt like I was staying at a good friends house more than a rental. Having a very modern up-to-date kitchen, to a lovely beach/boating club decor throughout the rest of the condo was very relaxing. The evenings before the sun set was beautifully spent watching the boats coming into the bay, from the hot tub. The condo is located at the very end of the street, making it a peaceful stay without a ton of traffic around. Overall, we were very pleased with the condo.

Perfect getaway location

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this condo. The location is perfect. Steps from the ocean and the bay. The water view is amazing. Lots of boat activity to watch. We appreciated all the little touches you provided such as the fluffy robe, the well equipped kitchen, and the comfy mattress and pillows just to name a few. The provided bikes were a bonus. We will stay here again when we return to San Diego.

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.
