                        Our family - including 4 kids - stayed here for two weeks over the holidays, and we loved this unit. The listing and photos are very accurate. The unit is very spacious and comfortable, with all of the necessities provided, and everything in nice shape. The reserved parking is great, and quite convenient. We loved the location. The unit is right on the beach, with a great view up and down the beachside boardwalk that runs right in front of the unit. We enjoyed beautiful sunrises every morning, and the kids loved being able to go down and play on the beach whenever the mood struck. It is also less than a five minute walk to the ocean side, and to several local establishments including Sara's Mexican and Capri Pizza (both good), the Pennant and Beachcomber bars (both dives, but fun), and a couple of markets. The boardwalk around the bay and along the ocean is great - I enjoyed a number of nice long morning runs. This is also a great area from which to explore San Diego. You're about a 5 minute drive to Seaworld; maybe a 10 minute walk to Belmont Park; and only about 10 minutes or so from great areas such as Liberty Station (and the new Stone Bistro there, and the kid-favorite Corvette Diner) and Harbor Drive (try Pizza Nova), heading downtown. We highly recommend this unit, and will certainly return the next time we're able to visit San Diego. Many thanks to Susie for helpful responses to our questions.

                        We had a family reunion while in town for a wedding. There were six adults and one infant. The condo was clean, well maintained and easily accessible. Our adult children enjoyed the bay as well as the ocean! The view is fabulous! It was wonderful to have access to two enclosed parking spaces. We would definitively stay here again!

                        My family rented this condo for 5 nights over the Thanksgiving Holiday. What a treat this location was! Right on the bay, and just a minute or two walk to the ocean. We really enjoyed the view from the condo. We found the condo very clean and comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped, as we proved when we cooked a traditional Thanksgiving dinner and found everything we needed. Everything was in excellent working order as well. There are plenty of activities nearby. Miles of walking near the bay and ocean. We enjoyed Sea World on one of our days; it is so close by. There's plenty of shopping nearby, and while the girls shopped the guys played golf at a nearby course. Susan provided plenty of information prior to our arrival, and when when we had questions, we received prompt replies. Susan was very accomodating and easy to talk to. We will never forget Thanksgiving 2012 because of the wonderful memories we made here. We hope to return in the future.

                        We found the penthouse condo to be amazing! Our middle son was getting married on the beach and our other sons also flew in for the wedding. What a great family space we had! We spent a week enjoying the views, listening to the seals barking in the morning, saw dolphins jumping and of course time on the beach with our grandchildren. The condo has everything you could possibly need. I wish it had an elevator, but I'll take the views over the elevator! There is a Ralph's supermarket about 2 miles north on Mission Blvd. for stocking up on groceries, beer, etc Our favorite breakfast restaurant from when we lived in San Diego is located on Garnet in PB "The Broken Yolk". The condo is very clean and well maintained. With grandchildren we really appreciated having a washer and dryer in the condo. We will definitely rent this fabulous vacation home again! Thank you Susie and Steve!

                        We had a wonderful time at this location. One of the best in Mission Beach. We had 9 people staying here and we were very comfortable. Very quiet at night with easy access to the ocean and a wonderful view of the bay. One of the best features is the keyless entry. You use codes to access the condo and the garage- so much easier than dealing with keys. The parking was better than expected. You can park a MInivan in the garages without any problems. When they say a full kitchen, they mean it. Pizza cutter, cheese grater, all were available. The balcony and its view were perfect. My dad loved having his breakfast out there every morning and watch the fireworks at Sea World each evening. We will definitely stay here again. Thank you!

                        The condo was great! It had everything we needed to enjoy ourselves. The underground parking was nice because during our stay we had rain and this way it kept us dry. With it being so close to the sand it made it super easy for me and my 16 mos old to enjoy and be super close in case of emergency. The owners were super easy to deal with and very accomodating. They kept us in know for any issues which was also super nice. After taking a walk on the ocean side with all the crazy spring breakers we were super glad that we chose this condo because it was quieter (not a big fan of waking up to partiers when you have a little one asleep). And we also got plenty of good exercise as there is only stairs up to the penthouse which we also enjoyed. Nice touch adding the bottle of wine to our stay. Thank you so much! If we come to SD again, I'm sure we'd rent from you again. A+++ - The Taylors and the Kyes

                        We met our daughter, her husband and their two children in San Diego for a week long winter break in February. We were extremely fortunate to find Susan McArthur and her VRBO rental condo in San Diego on Mission Beach. Susan is extremely helpful in setting up our vacation location. Every detail was handled with incredible professional and personal attention. The condo with it's two private enclosed parking spaces met our every need. The location was perfect and the condo is everything that we could have hoped for. We actually had a group of 8 people very comfortably stay in this great 3 bedroom unit. I would highly recommend this unit to any family looking for a clean, well provisioned roomy condo to relax in. It was quiet with a great beach on the bay side, and easily within walking distance of a lot of great beach attractions. Our teenagers, including a girl friend found a lot to do right in the area and were well pleased with our choice of housing. GIve Susan a call. It was sure worthwhile for us.

                      About the owner: Steve, Susan, Mike and Kevin

                      Why the Owner Chose Mission Beach:
                      The beach view is why we bought this oondo but we have had other property in South Mission for 9 years because we went to college in SD and have family in town. The year round activities lead us to make the condo available for us and visitors.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      The beach, the San Diego Zoo and Balboa Park Museums as well as the USS Midway to which we are patrons, are the principal activities we partake of when we are in San Diego.
