Mission Beach apartment description

Located on the boardwalk upstairs of the castle, the Hamel's Castle, this oceanfront luxurious unit has been remodeled to a 3BR/3BA apartment in 2012. It has a spacious 440 sq ft furnished terrace and breathtaking views. The location by itself is priceless. The apartment is steps away from the sand and the famous Belmont Park. There are retailers downstairs and many shops around, bars, restaurants and much more in the Bay area. Downtown San Diego is easy to reach from here (15 minutes by car) and so are most of San Diego's attractions such as Sea World (5 minutes), Legoland (30 minutes)and the San Diego Zoo (20 minutes).

This comfortable 1,950 sq ft luxurious apartment offers everything you need for a great escape right on the beach. You will enjoy the nicest appointments, romantic getaways, or just the beach atmosphere in the beautiful San Diego. The apartment has been remodeled and upgraded in June 2012. The apartment features a fully equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances, slab granite counters, pantry room and designer finishes throughout. There are plasma TVs in every room - including one of the bathrooms. The living room area opens up to a spacious private balcony on the 1st floor that offers lots of seating, gas BBQ, home theater stereo in-out doors and the beautiful ocean view. The bathroom offers a high tub/shower with radio and lights;Spa feature is disabled and not recommended if you are pregnant at advanced stage! Washer and dryer in-unit.

Sleeping arrangements include one king bed and two queen beds plus a pull out queen sofa in the living room. This unit is ideal for up to 8 people. No private parties with more than maximum occupancy is allowed in the unit.

There is a designated parking spot detached from the building for 2 compact cars (tandem parking) or 1 large car , but lots of parking spaces surrounding the area - one handicapped parking across the street. We provide linens and towels, beach towels, beach toys and umbrella, chairs and complimentary discount vouchers from retailers downstairs.

Here are some details about Mission Beach and surrounding areas to help you with your decision to stay in Mission Beach:

Mission-Beach is a San Diego favorite among locals and visitors alike. It lies between Mission Bay and the Pacific Ocean and has nearly two miles of beautiful white sandy beach. The area is filled with pastel colored houses, condos, old style cottages, beach apartments and hotels. The colorful Boardwalk at Mission Beach runs for three miles ending north of Pacific Beach and is always filled with bicyclists, runners, skateboarders and rollerbladers, and has designated lanes for walking. You can engage in people watching and sunbathing on Mission Beach, or the more strenuous activities of swimming, surfing, body boarding and kayaking. The southern part of Mission Beach is known for its' beach volleyball. To the east lies Mission Bay, which contains two islands with many coves and inlets, and has a large marina for pleasure boaters, and facilities for picnics, camping and fishing. One special point of interest at Mission Beach is Belmont Park, once the site of an amusement park that now is home to shops and restaurants, and a completely restored rollercoaster. This 73 foot wooden rollercoaster called the 'Big Dipper' was built in 1925, closed in 1976 and reopened in 1990. Everything is convenient for visitors to Mission Beach; just two blocks east are coffeehouses, fast food, taco shops, ethnic food or fine dining. Bicycles and in-line skates are both available for rent on the Boardwalk right below our Vacation rentals which is located inside a Mission Beach historical landmark: The Hamels Castle!
Note: Mission Beach is also known as the place for young groups; if you are noise sensitive you probably should research more before making a commitment to stay in this area.

Surrounding areas: Mission Bay, California (1.1 mi), Pacific Beach, California (1.3 mi), Bay Park, California (2.7 mi), Ocean Beach, California (2.7 mi), La Jolla, California (4.4 mi), San Diego, California (6.1 mi), Point Loma, California (6.8 mi)
