Mission Beach condo description

This condo is in a fantastic location! Get a water view without paying a waterfront price! From your living room, gaze out over the channel to the evening lights of Ocean Beach. Watch the fishing boats leaving early in the morning, and returning at night with a flock of pelicans flying overhead. Just a few minutes walk eastward to the bay, you will find a quiet sandy beach, with sail boats bobbing in the inlet and a large playground for little ones.

Just a few minutes walk west brings you to the magnificent Pacific Ocean. There are often great waves right here at the jetty for surfing. Boogie boarding and swimming are just a little further up the beach. Boardwalks run up both the bay and ocean sides for walking or jogging, biking, skateboarding or roller blading.

This is a clean and bright one bedroom condo overlooking the channel at the southern end of Mission Beach. Features include TV's in famliy and bedroom, free long distance telephone, high speed internet, fully equipped kitchen with pass-through to living room, table and chairs for 4, open living room with windows to the south and west which provide lots of sun and light, tile floors throughout, newly painted, renovated kitchen and bath, queen bed in the bedroom, and two comfy couches in the living room, one of which folds out into a queen bed.

The complex is fully fenced, and includes two large gas grills, tables with umbrellas and a large spa, which is also fenced. A garage space is included.

There are beach bikes, boogie boards, sand toys and beach chairs for your use. All create a warm, wonderful place to base your San Diego vacation. Ours is a quiet complex, so no worries about loud beach parties here!

This place is comfortable, clean, charming and has a terrific location!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2004

                  About the owner: Hello, we are the Westphals: Doug, Jean Johnson and our daughters, Talia, 14 and Arianna 13. We live in Northern California a few miles north of the Golden Gate Bridge. We love to travel and would rather be outside hiking, mountain biking, swimming or hanging out with our dogs than just about anything else, except eating, which we also love to do.

                  Why the Owner Chose Mission Beach:
                  We used to travel to San Diego to visit friends and family once every year or two while we lived back east. When we moved to Northern California we found ourselves there several times a year. It just seemed natural that we would choose America's most fun playground for our vacation home.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  We love our location! We get a water view without the waterfront price. Our condo is located at the very southern tip of Mission Blvd. overlooking the channel that connects the ocean to the bay. Our girls love to ride their bikes over to the playground on the bay side, Jean loves to run on the beach on the ocean side, and Doug surfs every day (sometimes twice a day) while we are there. We all take advantage of the hot tub, and we have our pick of fish taco's from Sarah's, La Playa, World Famous, Rubio's or La Bahia. Life is Good in San Diego!
