Mission Beach condo description

The Great Blue Heron - Lovely 4 Bedroom 3 Bath - Large, 2600 sq ft located in Mission Beach bayside.

Choosing a vacation rental or home can be a big decision. To ensure you choose the right rental for your stay is important to us as well. Our service, for you, is personal, and we do speak to each vacationer personally, before confirming a reservation to ensure you are choosing the right rental/ home and location you are looking to stay.

The Great Blue Heron

Come and Experience this exceptionally large waterfront 4 bedroom beautifully remodeled bay front beach rental with 2600 square feet of living space for your vacation enjoyment. The location on the quieter side, the Bayfront provides a wonderful atmosphere for vacationing in San Diego. The Great Blue Heron is the perfect choice for your large families and reunions, as it will accommodate up to a maximum of 12 people in beds for sleeping.

Tastefully decorated in nautical cottage interiors with all new kitchen and granite counters along with Pottery Barn style furnishings add that extra touch for a true beach feel and experience. Renting this beach accommodation, will delight and pamper your guests after a long day playing at the beach. With San Diego's notoriously perfect weather (practically), visiting the beach can be a wonderful experience any time of the year. This unit occupies the 2nd and 3rd floor levels of the building. You and your guests will have years of memories and fun filled stories about your stay in Mission Beach at The Great Blue Heron.

Your vacation rental sits on the gorgeous and peaceful beach front with a delightful view of the glimmering water outside your door at the beach. Each morning the sun elevates itself above the horizon to cast it's first morning light across the shimmering waters for your pleasure. In the summer season, each night, you have front row seats to experience Sea World's nightly fireworks display. Mission Beach is unique in that it sits on a peninsula with both the bay and the ocean. The Great Blue Heron is at the narrowest part of that peninsula, which makes it the ideal location.

Imagine sitting on your balcony with a cup of coffee watching the sunrise over the water, or in a minute walk across the street to watch the waves. This is the perfect beach location for families with small children or for people who enjoy a less hectic beach experience. The bay is quieter with less foot traffic and bikes so the little ones can safely play on the sand and along the peaceful water's edge. But, when your urge for action arises to meet the mighty Pacific Ocean you are only 150 steps from the ocean side and you can tackle the waves with your boogie board or surf boards. But, you will love coming back to the calm picturesque waters of the bayside.
This beach vacation accommodation, has 2 gorgeous master bedrooms with deliciously comfortable king beds Two of the bedrooms have 2 equally comfortable queens each (total of 4). These unique extra large bedrooms will allow for 12 people in beds. Our 4 bedroom will accommodate a large group in comfort. Perfect for a large family vacation
