The Lido affordable in a highly sought after area

  • 5 of 5

The Lido truly is an affordable place in a very highly sought after area. It is in a safe location close to everything, especially the bay and beach. Our family (my husband and I and our two children ages 4 and 8) had a wonderful time at the Lido. Daniel made us feel very welcome and answered any questions we had about the area. We chose to pay the extra to face the bay and really enjoyed the views. Multiple times we enjoyed watching the yacht club boat races on the bay. There are great walking paths along the bay right there and the walk to the beach is also very close. My husband enjoyed surfing, while we enjoyed playing in the sand. There are also kayaks at the Lido, which are free to use. We enjoyed kayaking around the bay. SeaWorld is about 6 minutes away by car and the San Diego Zoo and Balboa park 15-20 minutes. If you want to stay in an affordable place right by the bay and are not concerned about a fancy place, then this is a great place to stay. We would definitely come back if we decided to vacation in this area again. Daniel also provided excellent customer service and is often on site if any questions should arise.

Diamond in the rough

Great location, rooms small but can sleep two adults and two kids easily. Spent most of the time on patio, plenty of room for kids to play. Will definitely stay here again

Million dollar view

  • 5 of 5

We spent a month in one of the 4 apartments overlooking the Bay. Try and get one of these. The view is amazing and we had a wonderful terrace and comfortable outdoor furniture. No traffic, just people walking, running or biking. Our apartment was spacious, clean and well equipped. The living area had comfortable chairs and good reading lamps. The bedroom had lots of storage and a comfortable bed. The kitchen had

everything you need and more, a slow cooker for example. Although we didn't see much of the owner or the manager we knew how to reach them. We enjoyed using the BBQ. We found having no car manageable with the bus stop close by and an excellent transportation system which took us everywhere we wanted to go.

a hideaway from the madding crowd...

  • 5 of 5

we were very pleased to find this little known jewel tucked away on mission bay;

this apartment complex overlooks the marina - and is a two minute walk from the shoreline...the beach is a bit wild, the marina is quaint, quiet and picturesque.

the accommodations are more than adequate for two (queen sized bed) & if necessary, a pullout in the living room...full kitchen (but bring your own soap sponges & spices & food...but there are stores galore - sprouts, trader joe's, ralph's & vons...all a stone throw away)! in fact there is every kind of shopping to be had in this locale...

the living room that we enjoyed overlooked the marina...and what a lovely place to relax after a days activities...a short walk to restaurants - & easy

access to highways & parks...a walk to an amusement boardwalk park &

right next to seaworld....this is in a fabulous location!

we found the apartment to be meticulously clean and if ever we needed a thing, daniel, the owner and rick his sidekick were eager to please...

for restaurants try el pescador in la jolla, phils bbq on sports arena blvd.

and the gaslamp quarter downtown!

altogether this was a friendly and great place to stay!

i wholeheartedly recommend it.

Great Location and Cozy Accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent the week here and loved it! It was perfect for us, we wanted something cozy and quite with beautiful views! That is exactly what we got!! The pictures and description are very accurate. Not the most modern house on the bay but it was super clean and had all the amenities we needed.. Loved the raised patio for people watching and met some really nice people also staying there. We booked are return trip for next summer already!

A great time in Mission Beach.

  • 5 of 5

Lido by the Bay is a great tranquil and quiet vacation spot. The apartments are clean and well equipped to cook meals etc. the location is wonderful, close to some great restaurants and best of all the ocean and bay are just steps away. Daniel, the owner, visits the property but never intrudes. Would recommend Lido by the Bay for a great vacation spot.
