One of the Best Beachfront Vacation Homes in Mission Beach
"We were looking for a vacation home that could accommodate teenagers, parents and grandma. We found it at Gull's Rest. The property was spacious enough to host two families and grandparents. The kitchen was well stocked and all the appliances worked well! Having all the bedrooms were upstairs made it really quiet when someone wanted to nap during the day. The great window that looked onto the beach allowed us to watch the bodysurfing teenagers from the house on cool days. There were plenty of beach towels for swimmers and throw blankets for the spectators. The two patio tables easily accommodated our group at lunch and dinner times. We grilled on the very nice gas grill most nights. On one mild evening, we were able to roast marshmallows for s'mores on the beach right in front of the property. The beach chairs came in handy for this and other beach activity. We rented bikes and cycled up to La Jolla for lunch. The kids practiced surfing at The Wave center located just a short walk down the boardwalk. It was a short drive to Scripps Aquarium and the San Diego Zoo. Some of our group even went to Disneyland for a day during our stay (1 1/2 hour drive one way). We had walkers and joggers in our group and they were happy being able to run the beachfront & bayside boardwalks. We were able to get our Toyota Landcruiser in the garage but it did take one extra person to guide it in. The driver had to crawl out of the window to get out of the car but it was worth it because parking is a challenge in the area. We were able to get a shorter sedan in the garage, behind the Landcruiser. You can't beat the lovely ocean sounds, cup of coffee or refreshing cocktails on the large patio. We were entertained for hours watching the colorful people pass by. Even our computer game nerd was happy with the internet connection and yet was lured to the beach for frisbee and boogie boarding. We hope to make it back in the fall or winter. If you are looking for a great place to spend a week or more. This is it."

"Our family of 5 stayed here for 10 days. We had a wonderful time and I have to say out of the 6 years we have been renting beach condos, this has to be our favorite. The beds were very comfortable, plenty of towels and other necessities for a very pleasant stay. Short walk to the stairs leading to the beach, not a problem for my young kids. The pool is super close too. Jan was great to work with and was always just a text away. We hope to be back!"

"We have stayed at this cute little beach house several times and it's perfect in every way. It's just a short walk to either the bay or the ocean.
The kitchen has everything you need to prepare a meal and if you don't want to cook there are many restaurants close by within walking distance.
The house is clean, comfortable, and nicely furnished. I especially like the little front deck to relax on while watching the world go by.
We look forward to staying again!"
