About the property

Newly remodeled 1 bedroom condo with queen sofa - sleeps four - great views

This lovely one bedroom (with additional queen sofa bed) condo is on the top floor of one of the tallest buildings in Mission Beach with GREAT VIEWS!

The moment that you step in the door, you are surrounded by a feeling of relaxation and calm. The bright new furnishings and happy decor make it easy to jump right in to a 'leave your troubles behind' mood, and the fact that you are only steps from the Mission Beach Boardwalk and miles of sand and sea bring that feeling into reality!

MISSION BEACH, the BEACHWALK, MISSION BAY, RESTAURANTS, SHOPPING, BELMONT PARK (with it's roller coaster and wave machine) are just a short walk away. SEA WORLD is a five minute drive while SAN DIEGO ZOO, BALBOA PARK, DOWNTOWN SAN DIEGO with it's GAS LAMP DISTRICT and OLD TOWN are within a 15-20 minute drive!

The wall of windows and terrace off of the sunny living room look out to the Pacific Ocean on the right and Mission Bay on the left. With views of the Downtown San Diego skyline and Sea World fireworks (nightly in the summer...weekends year round!). You can see for miles while you sit on the terrace with your morning coffee.

The kitchen is equipped with new stainless steel appliances, including a microwave and dishwasher surrounded by beautiful marble counters and floors.

Extra care has been taken to provide the most comfortable bed with down pillows and comforters. The bath, with drenching rain shower head and tub, has been completely remodeled and surrounded with travertine marble tile.

Every care has been taken to make you feel like the special and valued guest that you are!

About Sandi Ellis

Sandi and Rick Ellis have lived in Grants Pass Oregon for the past 5 years since moving from Carmel Valley California. We are semi retired and share our lives with our four dogs and one horse. We enjoy updating the condo when we visit several times a year and hope that our guests enjoy it also!

Why Sandi Ellis chose San Diego County

We purchased this condo when our daughter was earning her pHd and needed a bright place to live for five years that was close to shopping and recreation. Since then our family and friends have enjoyed using the condo to vacation at the beach. Because our family and friends use this home, we have decorated and maintained it not so much for rental but for our enjoyment, so it's nicer than you might expect from a beach rental.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I loved our visit to your condo. It was perfect, a lovely place to relax.

Best part was the easy walk to the beach.

Katherine is a gem. Kind, understanding, smart, personable, just a sweet person. Really enjoyed meeting her.

To sum up our visit, my husband said as were we pulling out of the garage,

"When you stay here there is nothing that you need".

Hope to visit again.

Parking at the beach is very difficult. Having a gated garage with your own reserved space is a huge benefit! The elevator and washer and dryer on site are very convenient!

Totally suited our needs

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our week in this well-appointed condo. It was clean and bright and well decorated. Loved the peek-a-boo view of the ocean from the balcony and the sunrise over Mission Bay. The skylight over the bath provided some great natural light. Sandi and Katherine responded quickly to our questions/requests. The only negative was the extremely slow elevator but we made full use of the nearby stairs.

Owner's Response: I apologize for the slow elevator. Poor thing tries to get there quickly, but often other residents hold it on their floor to load or unload...a very rude activity and there are rules against such nonsense! I'm just happy that we have an elevator as it can be a long climb to the 4th floor after a day at the beach.

Pictures were deceptive very disappointed in the property

  • 1 of 5

Several glitches made the stay disappointing

When we arrived the Tv did not work as it should have Katherine was not able to get it working my husband finally got it working next morning the hair dryer tripped out the circuit and complete power failure occurred that also affected the working TV after that no signal on the TV for the remainder of our stay... and had to dry hair in the kitchen without a mirror not acceptable

The condo was not that clean nor it was stocked with Starbucks coffee which Katherine mentioned should have been in coffee container dishwashing liquid container was almost empty barely enough to wash dishes ??

Sliding screen door was non functioning and the beautiful view from the patio included the most beautiful electrical transformer I've ever seen .... seriously??? Expectations were higher then reality!!

Owner's Response: It’s unfortunate that our last guest feels that the condo isn’t up to their standards. They let our hostess know that this was their first experience renting lodging that wasn't a hotel. They just came off of an elegant cruise and it is difficult to compete with that kind of experience. I think that our guest said it all: “expectations were higher than reality”. Perhaps that is not the fault of the condo. We do our best to anticipate the needs of our guests and to give them a special experience and so far have had great reviews and high ratings. The listed problems are being addressed and I assure our future guests that they will be taken care of. I’m also disappointed that there is a pole with transformers within view. I wish that I could do something about that, but alas, I don’t have the ability to fix that one. The photos on our site were taken legitimately and were not photo shopped in any way.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were on a pleasure trip and have always loved staying in Mission Beach. We've stayed in quite a few over the past years, but this one was definitely our favorite. The views were amazing, lovely décor, and the bed was sooo comfortable. We loved how close it is to the beach, and how private it is. It's nice to have a private parking garage. We'll definitely be coming back in 2017. Sandi and Katherine are wonderful to work with.

delightful place to stay in the center of Mission Bay

  • 5 of 5

Airy, breezy, beautiful view from the 5th floor of a wonderfully appointed 1 BR condo.

On the deck we watched sailboats on Mission Bay, watched sunrises and sunsets, could see S.D. skyline in the distance, and could see the waves on the Pacific Beach (though just a small glimpse due to row of buildings between us and the ocean.) Very short walk to the "boardwalk" and about 10 min. walk puts you right in the middle of PB and its dozens of places to eat and drink! Everything we needed was available in the apartment but, we ate out mostly. Very comfy bed, nice shower with plush towels. Very secure parking garage and elevator next to parking spot. Couldn't think of a better place to stay for our 1st VRBO San Diego! Dealings with owner (Sandi) and manager (Katharine) very professional and pleasant. We didn't want to leave!

Mission Beach and Mission Bay both just steps away
Car: not necessary

This lovely condo is in the perfect location. You can park your car in the GATED GARAGE with your own RESERVED SPACE while you walk south to BELMONT PARK with it's historic wooden roller coaster (one of only a few running today), wave machine and carnival atmosphere. The BEACH WALK runs for miles along the BEACH (50 steps from the condo) and is perfect for anything from a leisurely stroll to running or anything in between...(the best thing is people watching here). It's an easy stroll to DINING, GROCERY STORES and there's a convenience market right next door. MISSION BAY is just across the street and half block away, ideal for enjoying the quieter side with sailing, and loads of water activities.

Of course a visit to San Diego wouldn't be complete without seeing SEA WORLD, (a ten minute drive) and BALBOA PARK and the SAN DIEGO ZOO, (both about a 20 minute drive).

This area boasts a wide variety of RESTAURANTS and COCKTAIL LOUNGES, BIKE AND SURFBOARD RENTALS, and more to occupy your time than you can imagine.... OR choose to sit on the beach and RELAX!
