Overview

Mission Beach Townhome Rental Photos and Description

6 Bedroom/ 4 Bathroom Sleeps 18-24

Experience Ocean Views from two identical connected Mission Beach townhouses rented together to create the perfect spot for your family gathering or group get-togethers. The connected townhomes are each three levels, 2,300 square feet total and are 50 steps to the boardwalk and sand in a quiet neighborhood of Mission Beach adjacent to Pacific Beach in San Diego, California.

You can't beat the location! The property is steps away from the ocean and boardwalk, across the street from quiet Mission Bay and just a few blocks from the dining and shopping district of Pacific Beach.

714 and 716 Whiting Court are connected on the second floor kitchen level via two lockable doors in each dining room and via a common front patio with a relaxing sitting-down view of the ocean, surf, sand and boardwalk. This unique configuration is perfect for many vacationers. It works great for two large families who want to vacation together, but may want some privacy as well. It is also appealing to groups with children as one side of the home could be the 'kid zone' with kid shows, toys, nap areas; and the other side could be the 'adult area' with adult beverages, visiting past 'bedtime' without toys scattered about!

Listen to the waves from one of the 6 bedrooms, or check the surf from one of the 6 private balconies off of each bedroom. The property has vaulted, spacious ceilings and several common areas.

There are two living rooms, two full sized kitchens and two dining rooms. Both homes have been newly remodeled in 2012 with new slate flooring, new carpeting and new kitchen appliances, which include new stainless steel refrigerators, stoves and microwaves, and new dishwashers.

Each townhome also has its own washer and dryer, and its own garage. THIS PLACE HAS 6 PARKING SPACES!

The town-homes are fully furnished. There are a total of four flat screen high definition TVs, two Blu-Ray/DVD players, complimentary Netflix and four full-sized sectional sofas.

The home sleeps 18-24. With 18 in beds - there are 2 California King Beds, 4 Queen Beds, 2 lower double bunk beds and 2 single upper bunk beds. Plus there is sleeping for up to another 6 in 2 living room queen size sleeper sofas.

High Definition Cable, Blu-ray and 20 Mbps Turbo broadband Wi-Fi internet included.

Recent improvements include a new outdoor shower, a deck expansion and all of the window and sliding glass doors have been replaced.

We, the owners, are regular beach goers and have kids so we have tons of sand toys, beach chairs, boogie boards, soft top surf boards, beach towels, umbrellas, everything you and your family/friends will need to experience living by the beach. We even include five bikes.

Please be careful of scams on Craigslist and note that we do not list our property on Craigslist.

Both town-homes are rented together, with a one week minimum, Saturday to Saturday in the summer.

About Ciara & Barry

After living in Pacific Beach for 15 years and enjoying everything San Diego has to offer, we wanted to deliver this experience to vacationers. We are long-term San Diego residents, and this is a family-run vacation rental business.

Ciara & Barry purchased this townhome in 2013

Why Ciara & Barry chose San Diego County

Scouring through hundreds of properties, we finally found the perfect spot. After planning several vacations ourselves we loved the location and flexibility of this home. It is perfect for family gatherings or special get togethers. This home provides 6 parking spaces, virtually unheard of! And it's walkable to everything you need.

What makes this townhome unique

Enjoying the people-watching on the beach, riding bikes along the boardwalk, surfing or swimming in the ocean just steps away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

5 of 5 stars

We had such a wondeful time at Whiting Manor. We had a large group, rangng from toddlers to seniors, and there was enough space for all; we even hosted a Christmas dinner, and there was enough cooking equipment to do that! The hosts of this house have everything, from sand toys to surf boards to 6 car parking capacity to plastic cups for toddlers. The home is lovely, but clearly meant to be lived in, i.e. no precious breakables, no white carpet, nothing that either small children or clumsy adults can break. Location is perfect, near the beach, near restaurants, near grocery stores, and yet so quiet at night, you can hear the waves. We loved it, and are already trying to figure out when we will return.

Great Rental

  • 5 of 5

Great property with an almost perfect location. We traveled with a mix of couples and single and every was able to sleep comfortably and never felt over crowded. The owner was responsive and accommodating. I rent properties a few times a year and this has been one of my easiest experiences. San Diego has been an annual trip and I look forward to renting this property again.

Great for larger families and groups

  • 5 of 5

This property is great for larger groups and gatherings. We held a preseason trip and the combination of the great location of the property and size helped make for a great trip.

The reasons for five stars is that the owners have done a great job updating the property, which are two identical adjoining units. It was clean and is well maintained and updated. Ciara was also very helpful pre arrival and while we were there. For our university sports team and staff it was comfortable accommodations for 21. If you want that size of group you will need to share beds and use the sleeper sofas in living rooms. But the ability to have kids or some families with young kids in the rooms with bunk beds make it very flexible in terms of sleeping arrangements.

The location is awesome for getting to beach, don't even need to wear your flipflops. It took us a few days to even make it over to the Bay side which is also only 3 minutes walk away and would be great for young kids. Our players also loved being able to walk to get decent food and staff loved having the Ralphs grocery close for stocking up.

The reasons i contemplated giving 4 stars were issues out of owners control. You are in tight with neighbors in this area of Mission Beach so you need to respect their noise ordinance; meaning quiet and basically no groups outside after 10pm. But you might be woken early by neighbours as sound can carry. Ciara and Barry have done what they can to get airflow with fans and we found it ok even on the warm days.

Thanks for the great service and accommodations!

Great location, wonderful place to gather for the week!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place for our family to stay for our family reunion this week. It was the perfect amount of space for 10 adults and 2 children to stay, relax and play. The adjoining kitchens were perfect for entertaining large meals, as were the outdoor patio tables. The kitchens were well stocked as was the house with beach equipment. It is in such a great location between the ocean and bay, also close to so many of our favorites restaurants, bars and coffee shops. Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Just steps from the boardwalk

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was one week that went all too fast. We had a family group of 16 (8 adults and 8 children ranging in ages of 3 to 18.) Parking was great, laundry and kitchens well stocked. We spent most of our time at the beach and on the patio . Sleeping space was fantastic. It's about 1 mile from Belmont Park for the kids which we walked to and the older ones could easily ride the bikes to. All the bikes were in great condition. Overall it was worth the cost and more important, the memories! Also, we spent some time directly across the street at Mission Bay which was great! One more comment, the walk to the grocery store is about 5 blocks, take the wagon and it's a piece of cake!
