From sunrise to sunset (and all hours in between), you'll love this house and its quiet location on the east side (facing west) of beautiful Sail Bay.
The number one priority when you go on vacation is to HAVE FUN! This house is stocked with all the amenities to make that wish come true! We have beach cruiser bikes in the garage for a leisurely ride and the choice of 14 miles of bike paths. If you feel like relaxing on the beach and working on your sun tan, we have beach towels and sand toys to keep the kids busy so take advantage of miles of sandy beaches. After a long day of beach fun, come home and have a drink in one of our margarita glasses and hang out by the fire pit in the backyard to watch the sunset!
In the morning, enjoy your coffee or tea with a pelican or kayaker as the sun gently rises on this blissfully quiet beach. But be forewarned -- time spent in front of the panoramic windows to the bay and the ocean turn into hours as the catamarans, sailboats and windsurfers fascinate you!
With nearly 2000 sq. ft. that includes three bedrooms and two full baths, there's plenty of room for everyone, though you might fight over the extra sleeping accommodations on the veranda with a wall of windows to the bay. There is a private fourth bedroom suite with a queen bed and private bathroom on the patio level.
All new beds and linens will ensure a comfortable night's sleep for everyone. The great room boasts more than windows and views -- there's a large flat panel HDTV with all the channels you won't have time to watch, a DVD player and enough videos and board games to keep everyone busy after the sun goes down. (There's another TV in the master bedroom.) There's seating for eight at the dining room table, plus the family-sized kitchen is fully stocked and has another dining nook surrounded by windows to the bay and a table for four. An oversized two car garage keeps your cars off the street, and includes a full size washer and dryer for your use.
Inside the private fenced yard is an outdoor shower, patio with grill, and oversized sand box to keep the kids safe and happy all the time. Everything from the beach towels to body wash is provided for your convenience.
With all these amazing amenities, you might be tempted to hang out at home all day-- but don't forget you're in the middle of one of the most exciting beach towns in San Diego! Covering more than 4,000 acres, Mission Bay is the largest man-made aquatic park in the country. You can walk from the back yard out your private gate and directly access the boardwalk and the bay.
SeaWorld, Belmont Park's historic Rollercoaster, Crystal Pier and the shops, restaurants and nightlife of Pacific Beach and Mission Beach are all within easy reach.
Rent a motorboat, kayak or sailboat. Pedal to Mariner's Point, Perez Cove, Stoney Point, Government Island or Fiesta Island to witness endangered birds like the California least tern and Belding's savannah sparrow. Have a picnic in your own backyard or walk to Crown Point for shooting hoops and playground swings.
Easy access to Highways 5 and 8 make it a breeze to get anywhere and everywhere else you'd like to go. The famous San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park, Gaslamp and Little Italy, Petco Park, Birch Aquarium, Legoland and the Wild Animal Park are barely 10 to 30 minute drives away.
Please note that this is NOT a 'party house.' Although directly on the bay, we ask that you respect the privacy of the neighborhood by refraining from unusually loud noise or behavior at all times. No smoking inside. No pets. We do our best to keep the online calendar and listing updated -- please call or email if you have any questions.

About: We purchased our home not as a vacation rental, but as our retirement home because of its wonderful and peaceful location, and it's right on the beach! We haven't rented the house to vacationers before last year, but retirement is still a few years away, so we'd be happy to share our slice of heaven with you in the meantime.
Why Mission Bay: Beautiful, quiet, peaceful -- close in to everything, but a world away!
The Unique Benefits at this House: Morning coffee on the veranda watching the kayaks, sailboats, joggers...the Bay waking up! Afternoon drinks in the shade on the patio while the kids play in the sand, the yard, the beach. Evening dinner and/or drinks enjoying a breeze while watching the most amazing sunset...it just doesn't get any better than this!
