About the property

Ocean View Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

South Mission, Spanish Charm with Ocean Views. Sleeps 9! Ocean View Deck seats 8+!. 2 flat screen TVs, Garage Parking, Bikes, Beach Toys - NEXT BEST THING TO OCEAN FRONT - Just one house back from the beach in South Mission!!

One of three condominium units we rent in a four-unit, courtyard style building, this three-bedroom, two-bath unit is a comfortable home for parties up to 9. It makes a perfect location from which to base your San Diego getaway, or just tuck in for a relaxing retreat. Just one house off the sand at the southern most end of the beautiful beach/bay peninsula that is South Mission Beach, this location puts you right in the middle of a lively beach atmosphere while still just withdrawn enough to offer quiet moments. This second floor unit is light and airy; its hardwood floors, Mexican tile and rustic furnishings give it charming Spanish flair. The full kitchen (with all stainless steel appliances) is open to the living and dining areas, and lined with French windows offering a lovely sand and sea view! Your own outdoor patio/BBQ has a great ocean view too! Here at Mi Casa you have the best of both worlds – proximity to the beach (steps away), but removed (one house back) from the lively boardwalk and “beach scene.”

This unit features all the comforts of home including full kitchen and all cooking/dining utensils, bed linens and bath towels. We have large flat screen TVs in both living room and Master, plus additional TV for kids in the bunk room. You’ll also have beach towels, boogie boards, sand toys, beach chairs and umbrella to fully enjoy the beach fun! Laundry Room with coin operated Washer and Dryer on site. Even one garage parking spot to tuck away your car (a real bonus in this area!)

In addition to miles of lovely coastline of beach and bay boardwalks right outside your door, you are within walking/biking distance of pubs, dining, entertainment, parks and local attractions (like Belmont amusement Park, The Wave House).

When you’re ready to see more of San Diego, you are just minutes from most of San Diego's greatest attractions such as Sea World, Old Town, the downtown Gaslamp Quarter, Qualcomm Stadium (Chargers), Petco Park (Padres), Balboa Park, the world famous San Diego Zoo, great shopping, and so much more.

About Julie Tudela

Our family consists of my husband and I, our three teenagers, and our lovable dog Mango! We all surf, swim, bike and ski, and enjoy vacations where we can be active and relax all together!

Julie Tudela purchased this condo in 2008

Why Julie Tudela chose Mission Beach

Thanks to the kids' grandparents who treated us...we stayed here years ago when our children were ages 2, 4, and 6 -- now they are young adults and still loving the place! The location is ideal! We love being so close to the ocean (50 steps away), but also enjoy the privacy of the being one house back from the boardwalk.

What makes this condo unique

We love the location, of course! But we also love that the light airy feel of the place, and the charming, casual beachy vibe. Hard wood floors and original french windows , and a great big ocean view deck, let us enjoy the sounds, sights and scents of the ocean from almost every room!

New is great, but we love the old charm and charisma of this spanish style building and courtyard!

The downstairs 1B/1b is perfect when we want to invite friends or family to join us! and 2B/1ba are perfect when friends and grandparents want to join us -- all together, but each family has their own space. Perfect!

Hope you'll come visit and make great memories for your family.

Great way to spend the 4th!

  • 5 of 5

Spent the weekend with our 2 kids, their spouses and 2 grandkids. Plenty of room (one bedroom is a bunk style), clean and all the things you need to have a great week at the beach. Easy access to both the ocean side as well as the bay. Location is far enough south that you don't feel the crowd near the roller coaster, but can walk there easily to join the fun. This was a 2nd floor location which we liked better than we thought we would primarily because it caught the breeze. I'd recommend it highly.

Cute beach house steps from the shore

  • 4 of 5

My family has been renting beach houses in Mission Bay for the past 6 years. This was the best one that we have rented. We liked having lots of space (Each child was lucky enough to have their own room) and we had our own room and private bathroom. I liked that there weren't any house keys, just a keypad to enter the house. Also, we were able to fit our Sienna minivan in the garage. It was a tight fit, but my husband was able to get it in there with NO scratches!! This is no easy feat for garages and parking spaces in the Mission Beach area.

There were lots of games, chairs, beach toys, boogie boards, kitchen utensils for us to use. I felt the kitchen was well stocked and easy to use.

We appreciated being on the second floor because we were able to get more of a breeze to help us keep cool, the only negative is that there weren't any screens (which isn't as big of a problem as first floor rentals, there are often a lot of flies at the beach), but, with all of the windows open you get a lot of noise from the alley below. There weren't any loud noisy neighbors, but the trash trucks two mornings and some random parents calling for their kids in the morning, cars driving by etc were loud in the house. This complaint isn't limited to this property, just a fact about being so close to other people in the Mission Bay/Mission Beach area.

I would recommend this property to others. The owner was very easy to communicate with and was a delight to talk to on the phone while I was deciding to rent this property. She was prompt in returning our deposit.

Owner's Response: Hi Wendy, thanks for your feedback! Sounds like you were happy with most things about our home, but not so keen about the area? Yes, real estate is at a premium down here, and the houses are close together, and yes, trash truck is loud, but for us, it's worth it to be this close to the beach, and have lovely beach views, without paying ocean front prices. As for your comment about no screens on the windows, I will look into that, thanks! I'm not sure how (if possible?) to add screens to the charming old french windows which swing out, but I will look into it (flies are icky!) We usually avoid them by keeping blinds down, tilted open enough to see view, and let in beautiful sunshine...but seems to keep flies out! So glad we are the best house you have stayed at ( in how many years, I wonder?)! Thanks again for staying with us!

Fun Week.

  • 4 of 5

Very comfortable place for a reasonable price considering that you are within steps of the Boardwalk. The south side of the Mission Beach boardwalk where this is located, is the quiet side, as opposed to the units near Belmont park or up by Garnet Avenue. Since there are multiple units in this complex with shared patios, you must rely on the other Tenants being quiet and courteous, which they were during our entire stay. I think the Landlord does a good job in that regard. That was a huge bonus. Super fun week, great location.

Fun Beach Spot

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for spring break and had a riot! The location is perfect - quite when you want it, but close enough to the action at Mission Beach when you want to go be in the middle of the craziness. The owner was super nice, easy to work with and highly communicative. The place is perfect and as advertised.

Fabulous vacation for 2 families!

  • 5 of 5

My family and another (4 adults & 4 kids) had a wonderful 4-night stay at Mi Casa! The house was well equipped with everything one would need for a fabulous beach vacation! Plenty of boogie boards, beach chairs, towels, board games, kitchen accessories, etc. Location is fabulous...close to beach, bay, mission park, etc. Parked the car and didn't move it the whole weekend.

Julie was extremely responsive to all of our questions. The wifi wasn't working properly during our stay (which was actually a electronics for the kids!) but Julie did everything she could to assist. She even follow up with a very nice message apologizing for the inconvenience. Fantastic service experience!

I highly recommend this rental. Will definitely stay here again in the future!

Owner's Response: Thank you, Kate! So glad you enjoyed yourselves! Took 2 appointments with Time Warner to get the WiFi fixed (tech is not my strongsuit!), but got it resolved! Thanks so much for your patience and understanding, while we got it fixed! Julie
