Mission Beach house description

THE BEST DEAL IN MISSION BEACH FOR THIS STAND ALONE COTTAGE 100 FEET FROM SAND.

The former home of a writer and educator, this 1920's bungalow has been completely restored to provide a very comfortable stay at America's finest beach. Just steps from the boardwalk and beach (three houses from the boardwalk) and near Belmont Park and the Roller Coaster, the house comes equipped with all you will need for the perfect vacation. Boogie board,kayak, beach chairs, sand toys, garage parking and an extra outdoor shower.

The master bedroom has a queen bed and flat screen TV. The second bedroom has bunk beds with a single and double. The comfortable futon in the living room makes into a double, where there is another flat screen TV and IPod/CD music player. We also have a Pack N Play for your toddler.

The shelves are lined with over 300 quality books of all varieties. I keep the prices very affordable compared to any other stand alone house in Mission Beach, so it books out very well. Many people really like this historic-style cottage feel rather than 'all-the-same' condos that line much of the beach, and for good reason. The hard-wood floors and Dutch-door in the front provide a nostalgic step back in time, while enjoying the upgrades to the cottage over the years.

When our kids are grown we're moving back in!! So come enjoy the Mission Beach Cottage while you can. :)

World famous Sea World is five minutes away and the San Diego Zoo is ten minutes. World class dining can be enjoyed in downtown's Gaslamp Quarter, a ten minute drive. Mission Beach offers nightly sunsets, biking, sailing, rollerblading, surfing, boating, a roller coaster and the country's most entertaining people-watching.

Book now, for the vacation you deserve.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1990

                          Why the Owner Chose Mission Beach:
                          I first moved to San Diego to go to San Diego State University and landed in Mission Beach, thinking 'why would I ever want to leave here'. Eventually, I was able to buy this house where my wife and I lived for ten years before starting a family. Now we have been vacation renting it for 14 years with plans to move back in when the kids are off to college.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          One thing that attracted me to buy this house is its location so close to the beach and boardwalk. And it is a single family home with no attached homes, on its own lot.
