REVIEW: ----> by a very happy Mom from HA site:
"The property was perfect for our family. Plenty of room to spread out!
5 of 5
The location was perfect for our family with three young children. The water is nice and calm in the bay, so we felt safe having the little one there. Our kids especially enjoyed all the beach toys at the house. And it was so nice to be able to walk a few short minutes to the ocean. We had fun exploring on our morning walks! We really appreciate the nice quiet family atmosphere at this property. Not to mention the money we saved by being able to cook our own meals. And having access to a washer and dryer was a huge bonus. We highly recommend The Royal Tern!
The first statement by vacationers just arriving is, "This looks just like the pictures," and how gorgeous, clean and what a wonderful location, this home is for a vacation rental.
This home is perfect for small families, couples and friends. Maximum occupancy of 6, small infant would be an exception.

Why Cynthia chose Mission Beach
Location and quality of the home were the most important factors of, 'why this property.' The Royal Tern is located on the bayside of Mission Beach, perfect for families with children who want to play right out front. The vacation home, is a second home, for a family and is kept to a higher level of care and cleanliness than your average vacation rental.

What makes this Condo unique
Location: First and foremost is our great location on the beach bayside, which is perfect for couples, and families wanting a lovely home to stay while visiting San Diego. Much pride and care has been taken in providing a wonderful vacation home that looks and fits the description on the website. We like to think we attract a more mindful vacationer who appreciates a very well cared for vacation home, that is a notch above the rest and in return takes care of the home while they are visiting. The quiet nature of the bayside, and the location, tend to lend themselves to a more low key beach experience. The area is also more mellow and quiet than most locations.

3526 #1 Bayside Walk, Mission Beach, CA
Great stay. We are somewhat elderly and so enjoyed the location with the sidewalks, restaurants, and general shopping facilities. Should we go south again we'd rebook in a minute. The landlady is a jewel and was so accommodating. The only negative is the narrow parking spot. After a few attempts we overcome and managed it just fine, but initially it is a challenge.
Wonderful Family Vacation Home
We stayed at Royal Tern October 14-21 2017. The place was just was pictured. Cynthia was so nice when we arrived. We did have a slight issue with the parking as did everyone else. We rented a mini-van for the 5 of us. Once we worked out the parking we have a wonderful time. The only other issue we had was the Refrigerator/Freezer. At first the frig temperature was quite warm 41 degrees the freezer ice maker worked but no ice was coming out. We ended up pulling all the shelves out to hold a large bag of ice. Cynthia knew about it. Other than that it was lovely. The bed in the master was so comfortable, I didn't want to get up in the morning. We had two relatives staying at the Bahia resort, so they would just walk over some days instead of drive. My granddaughter loved the sandy beach. For October, the weather was a bit warm, one day it was 92 degrees when we went to the zoo. We walked to one of the best restaurants on Mission Blvd (The Mission Restaurant) it was wonderful for breakfast. The grocery store was about 2 miles away. Belmont Park you can also walk to. The sunrises were incredible as well as the sunsets on Mission Beach, which is a block away. All in all a wonderful birthday celebration for my husband who turned 70 that week. I highly recommend this place.
Thank you Toni, for such a great review.
It was lovely having you all come stay and for choosing the Royal Tern.
We look forward to your return visit.
*The ice issue was resolved.
Thanks again Toni for taking the time to share your wonderful review.
Wonderful week at the beach!
This rental is a great place to spend time relaxing! Very clean, well stocked with all amenities and comfortable beds! This is one you want to spend your vacation enjoying!
Beautiful, 400 steps to ocean, clean and cozy condo!
Our family really enjoyed staying at the Royal Tern for two weeks in May. Beautiful chef's kitchen and outdoor living space overlooking the bay. Located 400 steps from Mission Beach, we came and went all day- enjoyed being in the middle of literally everything. Would happily stay here again!
I loved meeting and having you and your family come stay.
Such respectful guests and fun to chat with.
I am so happy you have had a great vacation. Its what I strive for.
Anyone would be lucky to have you stay in their home, but come back to me if you come to San Diego.
Best you and your family.
Nice place great location.
Love the area very convenient. We would highly recommend this place for adults because of rules regarding furshing. White furniture a little intimidating. Also the concern about use of certain sunscreen that shouldn't be used. All in all very nice place.
Thank you for your review and I just want to say, that over at the 5 years, we have had so many families with small children and teens and there has never been an issue with the couch. We love and welcome our families with children. Our business is based on families.
Our couches are slip covered couches and we have had the same two sets of covers for 5 years.
They wash beautiful and because they are white I can use bleach.
(just think how often a normal dark couch with out slip covers is washed....)
Anyway, the couch is not a problem and I even provide throws for it should anyone be of concern.
So, anyone reading this, note that I welcome families and we always provide a beautiful home, impeccably clean and well cared for.
Plus, I love my work.
San Diego and Mission Beach provide fun water activities of all sorts, cultural events and great history of our explorers. You will never run out of things to do or see, only your imagination will limit you. Sea World, The San Diego Zoo, Scripps Institute, Mexico, LegoLand, The Midway Museum, La Jolla, the beach, the ocean front, are all at your disposal to see and do.
