About the property

Live the California Dream!

This spacious 2300 square foot luxury home was built to resemble a vintage Tug Boat. Ideally located just steps to the sand in South Mission Beach this three story house is a dream boat as well. Lots of living space for a large or extended family to spend quality time together or spread out and have some alone time on the rooftop sun deck or cozy tropical yard. Spend the day enjoying the beach, nearby Sea World, and San Diego Zoo and come home to barbecues, cold beverages, and beautiful sunsets. The possibilities are endless. Please view my other beach area property to see my review history and a budget friendly option. (HA-3889181)

About Kevin Kuerbis

California born and raised and proud to call San Diego my home. My father is aSan Diego native and our family has been here since the 1920's.

Kevin Kuerbis purchased this house in 2017

Why Kevin Kuerbis chose Mission Beach

I have dreamed of owning a house at South Mission Beach as long as I can remember. Being an avid surfer and beach volleyball player probably has a little to do with that. So, when this house was listed for sale, I did everything I could possibly do to acquire it. I look forward to sharing it with my family and friends as well as yours for years to come.

What makes this house unique

The roof top deck is a nice place to lay in the sun with a little more privacy than the beach. The boardwalk that goes all the way up to Pacific beach is just outside my door and I have always seen something entertaining or unusual while walking or riding a bike on the boardwalk.

Great house

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our vacation very much. We were very happy with the location, so much to offer within walking distance. We had lots of space for our whole family.

We had an excellent stay, and Kevin was the perfect host. The house is clean, cool and walking distance to the beach (with beach views from the roof deck). We had an awesome time and will be back. A+ Enjoy!

Such a great house!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don't do the house too much justice. We had such a great time at the boat house. The owner was accommodating and made himself available if we needed anything. Right after I secured our reservation with the deposit the owner reached out to me, such a great feeling. The house is incredible. We fit 10 adult women more than comfortably. The house was clean stocked with your basic needs. There are three levels to the house. On the first floor is the kitchen area, laundry, and one very large bedroom with a couch. The second level was our favorite and spent the most time. It was a perfect gathering room for all 10 of us. There were 3 couches and a large table. On the second floor there is also another large bedroom with a bathroom attached. The upstairs level is the third bedroom with two sets of bunkbeds, one with a trundle bed that pulls out. On the third level is the outdoor balcony. Such a great house filled with everything you need. We can't wait to come back!

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect for a stay at Mission Beach. It had everything we could have possibly asked for and more. Kevin was very diligent and accommodating. He called to let us check in early and had provided our families with extra snacks and drinks to get started. We loved having the piano, guitar, and ukulele to play as well. It has everything a family would need and more! It was wonderful not to have to bring beach equipment since this house was fully stocked and it was high quality. We loved how close we were to the beach and would definitely stay here again in a heart beat!
