Overview

San Diego County 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.

The location of the property was perfect and the size was ideal for a large group.

  • 4 of 5

Our group consisted of six families staying for varying periods of time. For the two nights that all six families were there at the same time, the house was large enough to accommodate all of us without feeling too cramped. The VRBO site does not do the house justice with respect to the amenities. The house came with several bikes, surfboards, boogie boards, beach chairs, etc. With respect to the house, the kitchens appear to be recently remodeled and were very nice. All the bedrooms were adequate. The location was perfect as the beach is a few houses away and the bay is within a very short walk. Plus, the house is located very close to the North end of the bay near the rental shop where you can rent various items such as paddle boards and sail boats.

The only complaint, if you can call it a complaint, was that because of the lay of the house, the bedrooms do not get a strong breeze at night. However, the owners compensate by stocking each room with multiple fans and/or ceiling fans.

Finally, the ample parking made this house perfect for our group. The garages were able to hold large SUVs and there were several spots adjacent to the house. For the first time in years our group did not have to keep moving cars around to account for street cleaning or the lack of parking.

We will definitely be back.

This was a perfect home for a large family. We had 12 adults and 6 children and room to spare.

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home was laid out perfect for us. Plenty of outside decks for your own privacy to enjoy your early morning coffee. All the amenities you would need. The home was designed so that you could enjoy the ocean breezes by having certain windows open. What made this home perfect for us was that it had the two kitchens and two gathering rooms with large tvs. The lower outside deck was large enough to enjoy evening bbqs.

Thanks Ciara & Barry for a wonderful week in your vacation home.

We have been vacationing in San Diego for several years now and this house by far exceeds all others

  • 5 of 5

This property is in a dream location. Its within walking distance to everything you could possibly need or want. It's beside the beach, a couple of blocks to the bay. The stores and restaurants are all within walking distance. There are also some fun bars to enjoy. However they are not too near as to ruin the tranquility of the beach lifestyle.

The house itself is nicely decorated and fully stocked with everything we needed. The newly expanded deck was the part I loved most. We would return from the beach shower off the kids with the outside shower and have a nice lounging afternoon watching pacific beach life around us.. We love to bike so we're delighted with the beach cruisers provided. The owner having heard we had two young kids took it upon herself to bring us some of her own kids toys. Where would you get that type of attention? I was delighted with that personal touch. Don't hesitate about staying here. It was perfect. Happy holidays to you.

Great place, easy going owners

  • 5 of 5

I had a great time at this property! I don't use VRBO often, but Ciara and Berry left a great impression.

Extremely friendly and accomodating. I got to meet Berry breifly in person and he was kind to help tell us some fun places to try nearby.

Really clean and comfortable. I should stress that more- very comfortable and everything was great.

Property is large so lots of room. Only complaint is I never wanted to leave - ha! Thanks Ciara and Berry for everything. You all have a great place and you all helped make our weekend very fun!

Great House for Large Groups

  • 5 of 5

We had 13 guys stay here for a recent golf trip. The house and location are amazing. Ciara and Barry were very accommodating, making sure everything was in order and that we had a great time. Would definitely recommend for larger groups!
