Overview

About the property

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 windows and sliding glass doors have been replaced. Please note the home does not have air conditioning, but several fans are provided and the ocean breeze keeps the home cool.

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 Mission Beach

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.

Perfect place for a large family and perfect location to everything!

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of 12 rented both of Ciara's places for a long weekend to celebrate my father-in-laws 80th birthday. We had plenty of space for the 6 kids and 6 adults. Perfect location right next to the beach - walking distance to restaurants, coffee and the grocery store. We took full advantage of the bikes to do errands and the toys for the kids.

Ciara was amazing all throughout the reservation process as well as during and after, even helping us to locate some items left-behind after we thought we had searched the house before we checked out.

Our only regret is that we didn't have at least one or 2 days to just chill at the house and the beach! We would come back in a heartbeat if we decide to do San Diego again and would recommend the houses to anyone looking for a place near the beach.

70th BirthdayFamily Gathering

  • 5 of 5

The location of these two units is PERFECT!. Just steps away from the ocean, but privacy for those times you sit out on the decks. The bay is a short walk, less five minutes. Stores and great places to eat can be walked to or ride the bikes (there are three provided with the rental). We did not need to bring any sand toys, boogie boards or surf boards. These were supplied. We did go to the bay side and rent paddle boards. This was so close to the units, we walked.

There were fifteen people in our group, nine adults and six kids. We did not feel crowded at any time. LOTS of space for everyone to enjoy themselves. Having two kitchens was wonderful. Both units have everything you need. I would recommend these unit to anyone looking for a fun, relaxed place to host a family gathering or a group of friends that want to spend time together.

Ciara and Barry are great host!! They let us know that if we needed anything they were just a phone call or text away. The guest guideline book they have provides suggestions on things to do and places to eat.

I have rented many condos in other states and these units rank 5 out of 5!

Very nice and clean

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the stay a lot, there was plenty of room for the ten of us. Some couldn't come at the last moment. The access to the beach was perfect. Was not that far from all the activities we were doing. We would recommend this place to anyone who wanted to visit San Diego. We also would come back and stay to.

Thanks so much

Amazing 😊😊😊

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful property, prefect for a large group. We had a problem with one of the garage doors but help was quickly sent to take care of it . The location is amazing just steps to beach. Lots of toys chairs etc... everything you need for play time. The volleyball net was sure a hit. Would definitely recommend this property .

Perfect Location!

  • 4 of 5

We had to change our family vacation plans from a deep sea fishing trip in Brookings, Oregon because of a major fire in that area and were able to book the Whiting Manor condos just one day before needed. We had family members coming from Minnesota, Utah and Idaho. The condos worked great for our very active family. They had one surf board and bikes and some beach towels available which we used everyday. The condos were very clean - our only complaint and the reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is that there isn't air conditioning and there was a heat wave during our stay. Luckily there were plenty of fans which we used constantly. I would recommend this property for large groups because it is so close to the beach, it is very clean, and the owners were friendly and helpful when I contacted them with questions.
