Car: Not Necessary

San Diego beaches and weather are some of the best in the world. Our unit are located right on the sand and waterfront. Mission Beach, in itself, is unique as it is surrounded by water on the both sides. One side is the quiet and serene Mission Bay and 50 yards west is the roaring Pacific Ocean. You can just relax at the beach or participate in numerous water activities. Sightseeing is abundant from visiting La Jolla, the pearl of San Diego, to Sea World, the San Diego Zoo, Mexico, the floating Naval museum - The Midway. The opportunities are endless for everyone with every kind of taste. We are conveniently located to all these activities.

Other Activities: San Diego, is a diverse environment from the Sea to the Mountains and in between. What ever you would like to do, San Diego or its surrounding neighborhood areas can provide.

Just ask!

Golf: World Famous Torrey Pines Golf course is just minute from your rental. Nothing compares to the view at the top of La Jolla on the green over looking the Pacific Ocean

Ski: In the winter season, there is Skiing just 3 hours north in the mountains of San Bernadino, just east of LA.

Many locals, will take a day trip, for a quick drive, to the slopes.


Manager info

About: Small personalized friendly service is a our business motto. We are individuals who own and manage vacation rentals for ourselves and a few neighborhood properties. With a long time family history in San Diego going back to the turn of the century, combined with roots from the midwest, we have both pride in San Diego, and good old fashioned values. The rentals showcased on this site, reflect, our goal to provide you with quality accommodations, along with personal service from the start of your reservation process, to your final departure. We like to think we attract vacationers who appreciate receiving the exact rental that is advertised on our websites and desire a well maintained vacation home or rental that much care has been taken to provide. In return, appreciate and care for the rentals during their stay. The environment we provide and the bayside in Mission Beach is perfect for low key vacationers, who want an amazing location on the waterfront and coast.

Why Mission Beach:
The Bayside Waterfront has it all, great views, peaceful surroundings and watching the water is a peace of heaven

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Water and Beachfront property, Its the quiet side of the beach. The Bayside is quieter and nicer for families and relaxing. Its a bit warmer on the bayside too, which we like. There are lots of people who love the excitement of the ocean front but want to relax on the quieter side when they choose and sleep in the peaceful atmosphere of the bayside. We provide hands on service as we both own and manage, your experience matters to us. We personally speak to each vacationer and greet each vacationers upon arrival to assure your smooth transition to your vacation. Our rentals are best suited for relaxed low key singles, couples and families. Parties and gatherings at our rentals are not suited for these vacation rentals. We also offer a pet and smoke free environment for our family members and guest who have pet and smoke allergens. Mission Beach on the bayside is a lovely experience for someone wanting to be away from the hustle and bustle of the ocean front. Both are wonderful, but at night the bayside is quieter and more relaxing. There is lots to see on the bayside, its just a different pace of life. We live here and enjoy what the bayside has to offer for ourselves. Come join us on the bayside for your vacation in San Diego.
