"This was our families first trip to San Diego. We have stayed at a beach house in Newport many times, but decide to give San Diego, Mission Beach a try. WE LOVE IT! South Mission was great. Exactly as Julie advertises, quiet and calm, but you can get to the busier section of Mission Beach in minutes.
The rental was easy to find and is 50 Steps from the beach (I think my husband counted 54 steps, lol). It was so convenient to get to the boardwalk and ride the bikes down to the Belmont Park area. We rode the bikes every single day.
It is nice to have everything for the beach at the house. Plenty of Boogie Boards, towels, chairs, umbrella. The greatest part is all the bikes. I think her description has 4 listed, but I believe she has 6. This was wonderful for our family of 4 (two teenage girls). Like I said, we used these bikes every single day. We would jump on the boardwalk and ride to dinner, Belmont Park, shopping, even to rent paddle boards to use in the bay. Without the extra bikes, we would have needed to rent enough for all of us.
We drove down from Salt Lake. It was nice to not have to worry about bringing items for the beach. I was worried when we left that we wouldn't have everything we needed, but we did. Our family has no need to buy Boogie Boards living in Utah, so it was great to have them all there.
Lastly, I would recommend this rental for a small family. Julie is very attentive and communicates with you every steps of the way.
The only issue we had wasn't really about the unit, but the flies. Being on the bottom floor, the garbage cans are right outside the door. These cans create many flies that can become bothersome."
