                              Manager info

                              Year Purchased: 2004

                              About: Noel is a native of San Diego & Linda migrated to San Diego in 1978. Both have had long careers in the real estate industry. They own and manage several properties throughout San Diego, with this property being their only vacation rental home. We pride ourselves on being hands-on owner/managers. We actually meet and greet our guests upon their arrival. We live close by the property, and have a full-time maintenance person available to handle any unforeseen situation that may arise during your visit. When we decided to offer a vacation home we made a conscience effort to stock our home completely, from the kitchen to the linens, to the beach and recreational equipment. We wanted our guests to be able to not have to worry about packing extra linens, bicycles, beach chairs, etc.

                              Why Mission Beach:
                              This house has a great location on one of the cleanest beaches in San Diego. The house has a layout that works well for families or groups of individuals. The fenced-in back yard is a nice play area for small children, and the two balconies overlooking the beach allow grandparents to sit and watch the children play on the beach. Our home is centrally located to all San Diego has to offer. We are only a 15 minute ride from the airport, too. We want our guests to experience everything this home has to offer along with everything San Diego has to offer.

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              When you walk in the front door you are immediately greeted with the most amazing view of the bay and beach. Our guests tend to compliment us on how well stocked the house is, the location to all, the beautiful sunsets, views, and most of all the dining room table that seats 12, faces west, and overlooks the water. Everyone loves to sit there and share meals with one of the best views in all of San Diego. Guests also like the layout of the house. There are no common walls between any of the sleeping rooms. The two family rooms, are spacious and roomy. They really love the fact that you can walk out the back gate and step right onto the sand and boardwalk. Guests enjoy the bicycles we provide for their use. They like to ride them on the boardwalk that will take them about eight miles all around Mission Bay, Mission Beach, and Belmont Park. You cannot beat this location!
