Mission Beach condo description

Absolutely BEST location on the quieter side of Mission Beach - Sail Bay. Beach and water front ground level with a 180 degree undisturbed lake-like water view. Very quiet, small building, right on the Sand with Private Beach. Across the street from the Ocean, enjoy this expansive ocean bay for a multitude of water sports including swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding, and sailing. Rentals available at a nearby aquatic center within walking distance.

Architecturally expresses Old World Charm. Gorgeous Italian Villa style. Un-crowded area. Very quiet neighborhood. Built in 2007 with upscale features and finishes throughout. This is a ground level property and all one level with private ground level patio.

This spacious property has stone floors, granite kitchen counter tops, stainless steel appliances, 4 large flat screen televisions, Wi-Fi, gas fireplace, washer/dryer, private ground level patio with your own barbecue, private garage for one car and parking for one additional large SUV. This property also has A/C. Very few properties in Mission Beach have air conditioning. We have beach towels, beach chairs, and a box of sand toys for your use.

Two Mississippi Stern Wheelers with and without entertainment, plow the Bay regularly. The view from their top decks, especially in the evening, with the glistening lights all along the shore, will prove to be unforgettable. The dock is just 1 block away.

By car or bus, you can visit the World Famous San Diego Zoo, the Wild Animal Park (replica of an African Safari), Sea World (5 minutes away), Lego Land, and the San Diego Bay Waterfront. Take a Big Bay Excursion Tour or visit docked, present-day military battleships, even the World War II Aircraft Carrier 'Midway' can be viewed. The 'Star of India', a historic square rigged Sailing Ship is part of a very interesting Maritime Museum, the center of which is the old Ferry Boat 'Berkeley', which commuted for countless years on San Francisco Bay, before replaced by the Bay Bridge. Balboa Park, created in beautiful Baroque Architectural Style, houses a dozen museums and an I-Max Movie Theater. Most attractions are about 15 minutes from Villa Italia.

Mexico, representing a 'different world' just lies 20 miles to the South. It, too, is worth at least a day trip.

Enjoy views from all floor to ceiling windows and doors facing this expansive beach and Sail Bay. You will see sail boats, kayaks, and paddle boarders enjoying this huge ocean bay. It is so wonderful to be right on the beach, water front with spectacular views to enjoy from the time you wake up until you retire at night. Even the night time view is special with lights reflecting on the bay.

The ocean side is about 80 steps from this bay front beach location and offers other water sports including surfing and boogie boarding. Walk, jog or bike for miles on the flat beach or boardwalk on both sides of this narrow peninsula which is truly a recreation paradise.

Villa italia is ground level and all one level...there are no stairs. Enjoy one king in the master suite (with full beach and bay views), one queen bedroom, and two twins. We have two twin sleeper chairs ideal for 2 add'l children.

The property is spacious with abundant seating in the living room and dining room. It is well cared for, well equipped, and clean.

Enjoy your private patio with table and chairs and BBQ. Patio gate opens onto the sandy beach. This is a private beach area due to the boardwalk curving away from the building in this area opening this wonderful beach just off your patio for your use.

We have beach chairs, beach towels, and a box of sand toys for your use.

All linens are included and the kitchen is nicely equipped. All you need is your personal belongings and you have a beach home away from home.

              This property is just across the bay from Sea World. Enjoy the firework display at night from your patio in the summer and Saturday nights in the off season. This location is very close to all that San Diego has to offer. The city of San Diego is about 15 minutes from you as well as the airport, Old Town, and the world famous San Diego zoo.

              San Diego is a series of beach towns, but very important to stay close to San Diego for convenience to connect to all of these attractions. If you choose something far away such as Carlsbad or Oceanside, you end up being about 30 miles north and much traffic between there and San Diego.....This is a prime spot. Plus this flat peninsula offers such a great recreation area for your vacation!

              Why Mission Beach:
              One of the very nicest properties in all of Mission Beach was created here. The front of this Architectural Masterpiece sets right on the beach on Sail Bay. Enjoy expansive views of this Pacific Ocean Bay with spectacular panoramic views. Wonderful water and land sports are just outside your door step. This is a beautiful connection to the beach and water. This is a very narrow part of the peninsula so wonderful to be able to walk across the street and visit the Pacific Ocean. It is about a 2 minute walk! Best of both worlds....enjoy the ocean bay and the ocean which are both very close to each other! This property is very nicely furnished, well cared for, well equipped, and very clean. Much attention has been paid to details to make our guests very comfortable. This property has all the amenities to make this a comfortable beach home away from home. The amenities include a gas BBQ on your private deck, 4 flat screen televisions, Wi-Fi, I-Phone/I-Pod stereo, gas fireplace, garage for one car with an additional spot next to garage that accommodates the largest SUV, full size washer and dryer, a/c, stone floors, granite kitchen counter tops, and built-in stainless steel appliances. You step off your private ground level patio onto the sand. The boardwalk curves away from the building, offering you a sandy beach just in front of your private patio. Others enjoying the beach are on the other side of the boardwalk so not near your patio....very unique.

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              Location, location, location. This is the ultimate beach location in Mission Beach. You have the quietness of the bay side of Mission Beach with the wide expansive huge bay in front of you for all the water sports you can imagine. Then just 80 steps across the street to the west is the Pacific Ocean. This is north Mission Beach - very close to restaurants and shops. But, you will find that you want to stay here because this view is hard to find in any restaurant. The building is quiet as well as the neighborhood. It really is the perfect beach experience!
