We had never been to San Diego so this was our first experience in the area. The Condo was perfect for the three of us, one of which was our preschooler. The owners, Mary and Mike were so helpful and friendly they made us feel right at home. The condo was just minutes from the beach and about 10 minutes from Sea World. The Perfect location. The condo had everything we needed and if we needed something the owners were more than helpful in supplying it. We would definitely stay here again.

Our five night stay at this beautiful beach condo will hold many wonderful memories for a long time to come. We had planned staying four nights but we were having such a fun time, decided to stay five. The four of us have been friends for over 50 years and try getting together once a year to spend time recalling events during the past year, talk about our husbands and families, and just have a wonderful time! Our hosts, Mary and Mike, were so friendly and helpful. Seemed as though we knew them for years. The ocean and the bay were very close, within walking distance just like the description stated. Loved walking on the beach and watching the surf boarders. The condo was perfect in every way and we definitely will come back.

We enjoyed our week at the condo with our son and grandson. It was comfortable for the 4 of us and had a great location very close to the ocean beaches and the bay, Mission Park, Belmont Park, as well as plenty of shops and restaurants nearby. It was a short ride to all the sights of the city including SeaWorld, Petco Park, Old Town, Belmont Park and the Zoo, Seaport Village, Coronado, and not far from LEGOLAND and La Jolla. We also enjoyed the courtyard and fireworks each night from SeaWorld. We saved money visiting all these places by purchasing the 3-day Go San Diego cards. The owners were very nice and helpful, and we especially appreciated having free parking, the BBQ grill and the Welcome wines - Thank you for making us feel at home!

My husband, daughter and I stayed at the Island Beach House for a week in July. The house is exactly as advertised and more. The owners, Mary & Mike Craven, have done so much to make the downstairs apartment as comfortable as possible. It is very convenient to have them living directly upstairs in case we needed anything. The apartment is kept very clean and well maintained. The kitchen is very well equipped - although we only ate breakfast in. Bedrooms and bathrooms have everything we needed - lots of towels and bath soap provided; comfortable beds with a fan in each bedroom. The livingroom is bright, with a large "picture" window, and cozy furniture, TV, and DVD player. Great patio in front for lazing around and people watching. Another very helpful feature is the washer / dryer. We did a few loads of laundry while at the house, and really appreciated that convenience. Mary & Mike were very helpful with suggestions of places to go, and I have to say, they are such friendly and nice people - treated us like old friends. Would I recommend the Island House to friends - absolutely! And we hope to return in the near future

This is a cute 2 bedroom 2 bath downstairs unit. The kitchen has everything one needs if you decide to eat in rather then enjoy the many wonderful restaurants nearby. Its a close walk to beautiful mission beach, which also has lots of cute shops and places to eat. Washer and dryer are included in the unit, along with a barbque outside for your enjoyment. Mike & Mary, the owners, provide everything you need to enjoy your stay in beautiful San Diego. There is cable tv to enjoy at the end of your busy day. Everything is clean and it has location location location. The wifi signal is good. My husband and I spent a week here and everything was absolutely perfect.

Great place for 1st time visitors!
Traveled from AZ with a friend from England, her daughter and 2 year old grandson. This place is perfect, walk to the bay and the little one enjoyed the water and digging in the sand. Walk to the beach and watch sufers, including Mike, the owner!. Drive 30 minutes to Legoland, drive 10 minutes to Seaworld, ( or follow the advice of someone else on here as we did, grab a cab for @ $11 and get dropped off at the gate. Great restarants close by, eat in, take out, get delivery.(Really liked Luigi;s Italian). Just one complaint.......wish we could have stayed longer!!

This is our second time at the Island Beach House. We can't wait to stay again. The owners are always around if you need them. The location is perfect for the amusement park, beach and wave house just a short walk away. Thanks again Mike and Mary, The Tracys

Great Condo for Family Vacation, we miss it already!
Great Condo for Family Vacation, we miss it already!
We just returned from a weeks vacation at this property and let me tell you it was wonderful! We are a family of 3 (with a 3 yr old) and the condo was sooo much better than any hotel would have been. First the condo itself was perfect (the pics online don't do it justice, its better in person!) it was VERY clean, spacious, and had all the amenities a family would need for a beach vacation. The outdoor (fenced in patio) was great for BBQ, playing, and hanging out at night when the little one was sleeping. You could not ask for a better location, it was literally steps from the bay and a three minute walk to the ocean, boardwalk, and the famous Belmont Park. The SD Zoo & Balboa Park were only a 10 minute drive and Sea World (my little ones fav) was less than a 5 minute drive away. The location is laid back but minutes from all the action. Our hosts, Mike & Mary, could not have been nicer. Before we arrived, they supplied us with a great deal of info and answered any questions very quickly. While there, they were helpful with directions and suggestions of the areas attractions. They helped make it a wonderful trip! Next time we are in the San Diego/Mission Beach area, we would stay here again.

About the owner: We would be delighted to be your hosts and your upstairs neighbor during your stay at the Island Beach House. It would be difficult to find a couple who enjoys this area more than we do. Mike, a retired contractor, is an avid surfer. Mary, a retired high school teacher, loves to walk or ride bikes on the boardwalk. We have lived here for over 20 years and as long as Mike can still catch a wave or a fish we will remain in this beautiful part of San Diego.
Why the Owner Chose Mission Beach:
When we tell people we meet while traveling that we are from San Diego, we always get the same question, 'Why would you leave San Diego? It is the perfect place for a holiday!'
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The Island Beach House is the perfect place to stay while enjoying Mission Beach. We are just steps from both the ocean and the bay. You can choose from surfing, swimming, bike riding or just reading a good book while listening to the sound of the surf. We are within walking distance of a variety of shops, restaurants, watering holes and even an amusement park. And because we live upstairs, you are guaranteed great neighbors!
