About Cindy Velasquez

We are a family of 5 that LOVES to travel and LOVES the beach.

Cindy Velasquez purchased this villa in 2003

Why Cindy Velasquez chose Mission Beach

It is right on the beautiful and calm bay and steps to the ocean. It has the right amount of everything! Calm and peaceful, yet fun and vibrant!

What makes this villa unique

With 6 bedrooms there is plenty of space for us plus our friends and family that we travel with. The 2 separate living spaces allow us to spread out and take relaxing breaks when needed! The jacuzzi is such a plus after boogie boarding, surfing or swimming in the ocean!

What a great weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was great! The house is comfortable, beautiful and well-equipped! The neighbors were much more pleasant than we had expected, given the rules and warnings. Perhaps our expectations were set appropriately? Would love to visit this property again!

Ideal spot for the long Labor Day weekend

  • 5 of 5

With 14 people in tow, we used the house as home base while visiting Legoland and the Zoo. We enjoyed a beach day in between and engaged the Beach Firepit Guy to set up a firepit at dusk with chairs, all the fixins for s'mores, wood of course to round out our stay. It was delightful, and we were able to put the kids to bed and the adult sat around the fire with a glass of wine - given the firepit RIGHT in front of the house.

The Bay side was perfect place for our little ones to play safely in the sand at the water's edge. The house was ideal for our extended family and young children.

There was enough parking for 2 mini vans and sedan and plenty of towels, sands toys, 2 SUP boards and a kayak for everyone to enjoy the bay side.

It was a short walk to Starbucks, mexican food and ice cream. We used the 'instacart" service to have groceries delivered so no one had to run out as soon as we arrived.

It was an unusually hot weekend in SD and the property doesn't have airconditioning but we opened the garage door part way and left the door open as well as the sliding glass doors in front which created a GREAT breeze.

If we return to SD, we would absolutely rent this property again. Cindy was also pleasant and responsive to work with.

Perfect setting for family time

  • 5 of 5

We took our three adult children and 5 young grandchildren to this house on the bay for a week. We had such a fun, relaxing time that in an entire week we only took one outing-- to the Birch Aquarium. We paddle boarded (the house has two), kayaked, rode bikes, took walks and played on the beach. The bay is perfect for small children, and if you need more excitement, the ocean is just a street or two over! The house has plenty of room and we were very comfortable here. It would be perfect if it had air conditioning--probably not an issue most of the year, but it was a little warm at times.

Holy Smokes!

  • 5 of 5

This property exceeded my whole family's expectations almost instantly. It is spacious, comfortable, private, well appointed and has numerous additional features: kayaks, paddle boards, beach toys, a refrigerator in the garage, outside dining area, ample parking, a large garage and a kitchen amply stocked with every kind of pot, plate, bowl & tool we could imagine. It's located on a perfect spot in the middle of the bay and is a short walk to the ocean side with all that has to offer. Cindy was helpful, friendly, prompt and exceptionally easy to deal with - we had no issues whatsoever. A final word: we booked the place for next year before leaving for home.

Fantastic Vacation with the Family and Friends!

  • 5 of 5

We had an incredible 5 nights in this property celebrating with our family the marriage of our daughter nearby. We entertained our out of town guests in our fabulous kitchen. The kitchen had everything we needed and the gas grill worked like a charm. We took advantage of the kayaks and paddle boards and they were used daily by all of us! We sat on one of the fabulous patios every evening, while preparing outstanding meals with family and friends. I highly recommend this place for a family vacation! 15 minute drive to Costco and a walk to the ocean every morning! Quiet, fun and close to everything if you prefer the night life!
