Ten years ago we bought this beach house that our family rented for many years! We're on the ocean side of Mission Beach, 6 blocks north of Belmont Park, on beautiful Kennebeck Court. There are only two houses between us and the beautiful sands of the Pacific Ocean; walk there in 30 seconds (or less!).
The main living area has soaring vaulted ceilings, a fireplace, down-filled sofas, and a large dining area with plenty of seating for family dinners. Huge windows allow for views and sounds of the ocean, and plenty of breezes.
Sleeping Arrangements: Three bedrooms plus large loft sleep 10 comfortably.
Two master bedrooms are located on the ground floor, each with private full bath and french doors that lead to the front patio. (One master has a cal king bed and the other has two twins that can be converted to a king.)
The third bedroom with queen bed is located off the main living area near the hall bath.
The loft, which overlooks the main living area, has two twin beds and a comfortable queen futon.
Baths: There are three full baths. You will never run out of hot water thanks to the latest on-demand water heaters.
Kitchen: The kitchen features granite counters, quality appliances such as a Bosch dishwasher and a Maytag gas range, and plenty of room to cook. If you love to cook, you'll find everything you need, from a Lobster pot to beach themed serving dishes. A breakfast bar provides additional seating.
Outdoor spaces: Enjoy outdoor space on every level of the house. On the ground floor, a large, private, fully-enclosed front patio has gas BBQ, pretty gardens, plenty of seating, and gorgeous ocean views. Enjoy the ocean breezes and keep the children contained while you barbeque.
On the second floor, the main living area, French doors lead to a charming balcony we call 'the coffee porch', our favorite place to hang out any time of the day.
From the loft level, step out onto the huge roof deck with teak deck chairs, hammock, umbrella, panoramic views of beach & bay. Watch sunsets and sunrises, or sunbath while your children are napping. Heavenly.
Parking: Rental comes with two parking spots, one in the garage and one premium exterior spot that easily fits the largest SUV!
Keyless Entry: We have a keyless entry system so that you will never have to pick up or keep track of keys. The codes change with every rental for your peace of mind, and you can even change the code to a number that is easily remembered by your family.
For our younger guests: Recently we installed built-in baby gates at the top of both sets of interior stairs. Families with small children will enjoy these upgrades. We also have two portable cribs and two high chairs available.
Main living area has brand new 42' HD TV with on-Demand, full cable line up, all the premium channels and a DVD player. The loft also has a new HDTV.
All bed linens provided. Bath and beach towels provided. In addition, there is a FREE Maytag front -loading washer and dryer in the garage for your use.
Plenty of beach toys, boogie boards, umbrellas's and beach chairs provided.
We provide all the little things too: paper products for bath and kitchen (paper towels, napkins, toilet paper), bath and hand soap, dish soap, laundry soap, ziplock bags and tin foil, and cleaning products.
Plenty of board games and puzzles for quality family time or the occasional rainy day.
Need more room? If your group is larger than 10, check for availability of the two bedroom guest apartment, the dollhouse (HomeAway #116828). A link to the dollhouse is located at the bottom of this listing. This charming space sleeps an additional 4-5. We can also provide contact information for other listings on our court.
Please note: No loud or large parties. We do not rent to vacationing students or singles under age 30.
Students, sorry this is not a student rental in the off-season.

Why the Owner Chose Mission Beach:
We rented this house for nine summer vacations, starting 26 years ago when our twins were babies! We love this house and always called it 'our beach house' even before we bought it. One summer we we arrived to find 'our beach house' was For Sale ! It is a dream come true to own this house and we are very thankful for all the fun times it has provided with our friends and our family. We look forward to spending many happy years with our children and someday their children in this special place.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
There are three levels so there's plenty of space for everyone. Lots of outdoor space on front patio (private and fully enclosed), roof deck, and balcony off kitchen. Only two house between us and the water- close enough that you don't even mind running back to make lunch or use the bathroom. The sound of the ocean and the views are great. Kennebeck is a great court and because we are six blocks north of the roller coaster, our section of the beach is less crowded than many others. But we're still close enough to walk or bike to everything on Mission and Pacific Beach.
