Mission Beach condo description
Come to San Diego and enjoy this Very Cool Beach Condo with twice the space of a hotel room at half the cost! Plus - you get a kitchen so you don't have to pay for every meal out!!
MISSION BEACH IS VERY COOL!
Mission Beach is a unique California beach town. It’s a peninsula of high priced real estate surrounded by the Pacific Ocean on the west side and Mission Bay on the east. Two very different worlds. The Boardwalk and the beach on the Pacific Ocean is active, fun & busy. Body surf, board surf, boogie board, jump the waves, search for shells, build a sandcastle or just walk along the shore of the Pacific Ocean. Quiet & serene Mission Bay offers another world - sail, kayak, swim, picnic & play tennis. Ride bikes or skate on miles of oceanfront and bayfront sidewalks. Only 2 blocks apart but a world of difference. Your choice. Enjoy both!!
Our Mission Beach condo is a very cute one bedroom, one bath located on the ocean side of Redondo Court in North Mission Beach. Redondo Court is right in the middle of North Mission Beach – about halfway between Belmont Park’s historic roller coaster and the famous Crystal Pier - so it’s the perfect location in Mission Beach. The Boardwalk and the Pacific Ocean are an easy 1 minute walk from the building entrance. It’s a one minute walk to a small market and there are tons of restaurants, bars & local shops within a two block radius of the condo. Ralph’s Supermarket is five minutes by car. Costco is a 15 minute drive.
TOP OF THE BEACH CONDOS - Location! Location! Location!!
The 21 condos in this section of 'Top o’ the Beach' are on the top three floors of a 5 story secure building (the first 2 levels are secure garage parking – more on that later). This condo faces south so it’s bright and sunny with views of beach house rooftops. It is not oceanfront and you cannot see the ocean from the balcony so that’s why the price is very affordable!! But don’t forget - you’re only a 1 minute walk to the ocean!! Location, Location, Location!! From the balcony, you can see the Sea World fireworks on holidays and every night in the summer!! Very fun.
INSIDE THE CONDO
The condo is about 550 sq. feet with NEW bright blue carpet!! It is exceptionally clean and designer decorated. Looks like a model home!!
THE LIVING AREA
In the living room, there’s a leather sofa sleeper and a dining table for four, CD player, iPod dock plus 32' LCD TV with cable and DVD player. Bring your favorite movies or watch a few classics that we keep at the condo for your use or rent them at several spots close by. Just in case you get tired of all that sunshine at the beach, there are books and plenty of games. Nationwide phone is FREE!
The condo has a big balcony which is almost 120 square feet!! There’s a gas BBQ, table, chairs and umbrella - perfect for enjoying early morning coffee and outdoor dining.
Please note: This is a non-smoking building. There is no smoking inside the condo or on the balcony.
Bring your laptop and log-on to the secure WiFi!
THE BEDROOM & BATH
The bedroom has a super comfy queen bed with good quality linens, pillows and comforter. New plantation shutters are on the bedroom window to provide light and privacy. The bathroom has a tub and shower, plenty of towels and a built-in hairdryer. We even include a hair dryer, shampoo, conditioner, bodywash & body lotion!!
Check this out! You get beach bikes, beach towels, boogie boards, beach umbrella and FUN!!
The bottom two levels of 'Top o’ the Beach' are reserved garage parking. That’s a VERY important benefit!! Parking is scarce at the beach and it’s nice to know you have your very own numbered, secure parking space!! An elevator operates between the garage and condo levels. Reserved parking is for ONE car. NOTE: Trucks, campers, RV’s, trailers or boats cannot be parked in the garage. Also, cars and SUV's over 6'8' high cannot be accommodated in the secure garage. We don’t recommend you bring more than one car because you could have trouble finding parking on the street.
EASY TO BOOK!
It's easy to book directly with me - the owner! No lengthy legal contracts and you can pay by check, credit card or PayPal. It's easy! Go for it! You need a vacation at the beach!!

Here's a note from a guest who recently stayed in our condo:
'Thank you for letting us use your condo. We found the location perfect and have fallen in love with San Diego. We have had a fabulous time and hope to return one day. We trust you will find everything is as we received it. You really have thought of all the odds and ends that someone might need on their vacation. Thank you. It was so convenient having it all at hand. Thank you again for a wonderful time.'
And, here's a note from a guest visiting from the UK. Did you know we have nonstop flights from London to San Diego now?
'Hi Jo Ann. Just a quick message to say thanks once again for everything. We loved Mission Beach and the apartment - the bikes and the lifestyle. What a life, beach, sun, lobster and giant shrimp on the barbecue - it's definitely paradise! I'm sure we will be back someday.'
If you haven't vacationed in San Diego before, you're in for a treat! If you are a repeat visitor, you already know why San Diego is known as 'America's Finest City' and “California’s Hidden Gem” with the best weather year ‘round this side of Hawai’i!!. San Diego’s average temperature is in the 60's - 80’s year round!! Believe it or not, you'll see people on the beach in bikinis every day of the year!! And, yes - the surfers are out there trying to catch a wave!! You'll see surfers from sunrise to sunset - everyday.

We stayed Nov 2008 for 4 nights. Great and Wonderful experience. When the details said "50 steps to the beach", its 50 steps to the beach. My 11 year old loved biking and I loved watching the sunset. Great places to eat is only a walk away. Grocery store is close by, to stock up the frig, there is even a card to use to get the discounts. Never wanted to leave. Hopefully we can come back.

Great little condo as advertised!
Great little condo as advertised!
My wife and I and 10 year old stayed during the first week of August, 2013. I had a conference at the Marriott next to the convention center and we wanted to stay at Mission Beach as it's only 10 miles North. Big on our list was proximity to the beach PLUS secured parking because the beach communities are very difficult during the summer for both of these. The condo is really well located with the beach just steps outside the door and the parking is secured as Jo Ann (the owner) provides you with the garage door opener for the gate. Also use the bikes! There are two of them included and we rented a third at Cheap Rentals across the street for a couple of days. The boardwalk running North/South from Mission Beach up to Pacific Beach is a blast to ride as is the Bay side. All things being equal, we would stay here again. The unit is a little dated but the bed is comfy, the kitchen is fully stocked and Jo Ann just replaced the BBQ grill. Such a better way to go than any of the nearby hotels and it was surprisingly quiet - we slept with the window open and it was great. I recommend this place for couples or a small family up to four as the smaller kids can sleep on the pull out sofa.

This was our second stay at "Top Of The Beach". And, I must say it's the first time we've gone to the same place twice. Will I return for a third stay? Absolutely. You can spend your time scouring the listings, being enticed by amenities that may (or may not be) real. Or, you can re-visit the tried and true. You deal directly with the owner, Jo Ann. Her contracts are clear, concise, and efficient. The condo IS just as described. Steps to the beach...steps to the bay is no exaggeration. This location is as convenient as it gets. You're also close to groceries, shopping, and restaurants. The condo was very clean on arrival. All supplies were present as noted. You could literally bring your clothes and sunscreen and have a great time. Not to be overlooked at this property is the included secured, dedicated, underground parking space. No searching the street for a space with more than 2-hour parking, and no trying to squeeze something larger than a Cooper Mini into one of the alley spaces without crossing the red line. From the fully equipped kitchen and free wi-fi to the supply of beach towels, beach chairs, boogie boards & toys, and 2 beach bikes...you'll enjoy staying here.

WE attended a conference in San Diego and decided to stay 2 exta weeks in a beach house. This was a great experience and JAnn is a great owner to deal with . Everything was as agreed. We moved to her Bayside condo for a second week. We really enjoyed the beach bikes. Overall it was a great experience.

Wow-What a BED
Wow-What a BED
JoAnn- Thanx for the use of condo. We have 2 lil girls and loved the security this property offers. We would also like to thank you for our last minute booking, and patience in working out reservation while on the road. Our stay at your condo is everything advertised, my only complaint was that we didn't take the bed back to Washington, it was the best bed I've ever slept in. My wife and I swore we were getting that bed when we got home, but neither remembered to see what make. Kono's still great breakfast house, got a new beach cruiser from King Cruisers, 2 blocks away(they have been there for 12years!), and only got in car 1 time during our stay(Sea World). Thanx for great time--Jimmy Leggett

Owner response: You are not the first guests to LOVE that bed!! The secret is the Costco Temperpedic mattress topper! So comfy and still has good support so you wake refreshed and ready to hit the beach!!
Our daughter now lives here due to the fact that her husband is in the Navy, so this was our first trip to the area. The condo is very cute, clean and comfortable. We did not use the pull out couch since it was just the two of us. Just down the street is a place called Cafe Mono which I highly recommend if you love coffee - we went there everyday! The Mission was also great for breakfast. We walked every morning. We went to the Art Festival, the Midway, drove up to La Jolla and ate at lots of good restaurants! We will defintitely be back, but next time we will stay longer!!!! Thanks again.

Owner response: I haven't tried Cafe mono but will now! Thanks for the tip. Even locals are looking for very cool spots!! Look forward to your next visit!!
we spent one week at Jo Ann's Bayside condo and one week here. we enjoyed both ,but this is our favorite. The location of both condos is perfect. The evaluator and secured parking at the Rodondo codo tips the scales for older travelers.Everything was as advertised. we enjoyed the beach cruisers. We will certainly come back again.

The condo was in a super great location. Just a block from the beach and right on Mission Blvd. with so many spots to check. We didn't rent a car at all. Just rode around on the bikes and enjoyed!! The kitchen was perfect so you didn't have to go out every meal! i would definitely recommend this condo!!

The week we stayed at this condo was one of the best vacations we ever had. The location was great, just one house off the beach, and so close to everything, cafes, restaurants, etc. Everything is provided and it seemed so much like home. Jo Ann takes care of her guests. Thank You.

This condo is simply perfect! Perfect location, great price, everything you need for a great weekend on the beach. The owner has put together a very informative print out that made getting to the condo and using the amenities very easy. The condo is very safe and secure with a gated garage for parking. Everything is within walking distance and the beach is literally around the corner. You just can't beat the location and amenities for the price.

Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: I am a native San Diegan and was very lucky to grow up at the beach during the 'Gidget' years. Since I love the beach, I traveled to Hawaii and was fortunate to purchase my first vacation rental in Maui 6 years ago. That was a dream come true! That vacation rental was so successful that I am now the proud owner of 5 more vacation rentals - 2 in Mission Beach, 1 in La Jolla and 2 in Phoenix/Scottsdale. I take great pride in personally managing my properties. I concentrate on making each one look like a model home so when a guest opens the door, they say 'WOW! This is nice'. The pictures on my listings are identical to how the condo looks inside. 'No surprises' is my motto and it pays off with very satisfied guests and no complaints and lots of referrals!! Yeah!! I also like to include lots of extras so the guests don't have to run to the store to buy paper towels and coffee and salt & pepper. All included!Look in the shower and you'll see a dispenser with shampoo, conditioner, shower gel and lotion!! PLUS - 2 beach bikes, beach chairs, beach towels, boogie boards and beach toys! Just bring your food and drinks and enjoy!!
Why the Owner Chose Mission Beach:
This condo is in a perfect location in Mission Beach. It is right in the center of Mission Beach and only 50 steps to the beach!! It is not oceanfront and that's why it is affordable. Oceanfront condos are twice as expensive. This condo offers the perfect opportunity for a family or a couple or a group of friends to afford a beach vacation and only walk 50 steps to the sand. Guests can walk to a dozen restaurants and bars and shops. 2 beach bikes are included and that is a very fun way to get around the beach area. There are miles of flat beachfront sidewalks to enjoy.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
LOTS of extras - all included!! Fully equipped kitchen down to the spices, paper towels and much more! PLUS - lots of stuff to enjoy the beach!! Beach bikes, beach chairs, beach towels, beach toys and a beach umbrella! Very cool!! PLUS PLUS - Numbered parking in a gated garage! Yikes! That's the best benefit of all!
