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 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.

Repeat visitor, I love this place!

  • 5 of 5

This property is all about luxury and location! It can't get better, within walking distance to Mission and Pacific Beaches, three houses off the boardwalk. The six bedrooms are comfortable and luxurious, and the house can comfortably sleep several families. I love this property!

Family memories

  • 4 of 5

I rented this rental unit for my family of 17 for a spring break vacation. We loved being steps away from the beach, having beach chairs, toys & boogie boards available for us. The units joining at the kitchens was perfect for us to be together rather than in 2 units separated. Everything that we needed was there.

We had an issue in one of the units & Barry & Ciara handled it immediately, making our stay a pleasant experience.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

I can not say enough about this fabulous rental. We were a group of 13 celebrating our good friends birthday. We rented both sides of house, each having a kitchen and living rooms, besides the 3 bedrooms on each side. We ending up eating and hanging out on one side. Both of the kitchens were very well stocked with everything we needed for cooking.We used the bikes and chairs provided. The location was amazing. It is 20 mins to anywhere. Working with Ciara was wonderful. I would love to return again next year. I think all of us feel the same way. Thank you Ciara for sharing your wonderful home with us.

Perfect for Large Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

We rented both units which was perfect for a large family gathering. Having the two interconnected living spaces was wonderful. The kids could hang out in one living room and the adults in the other. Having the kitchen space open to the living space meant no one felt isolated while working in the kitchen. We logged lots of steps walking to some of the best restaurants around. Plenty of take out and eat in options close by. We all walked over to and along the beach several times a day. Plenty of entertainment within walking distance! We enjoyed Escapology just down the road. We also walked to an urgent care facility to tend to a cut.

Owner's Response: Monica, We are happy to hear that you had a great vacation and that the little extras we provide were used and appreciated. As a family, we enjoy the beach and know how difficult it is to bring everything with you. We wanted to make it easy for our guests to have the essentials for a beach vacation.
