About Nancy Whalen
When we're not at the beach, we live in Phoenix, Arizona, Rick grew up there and Nancy is from Massachusettes and also lived in Wisconsin. We have been married for 35 years and have three grown sons. We go to San Diego as often as we can. We love all the San Diego has to offer and never get tired of acting like tourists. We have enjoyed getting to know families from all over the world who have stayed here, made memories, and filled our guest books.
Nancy Whalen purchased this House in 2003
Why Nancy Whalen chose Mission Beach
We rented this house for nine summer vacations, starting 27 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.
What makes this House unique
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 sounds and views of the ocean especially enjoyable from roof deck and front patio . 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.

Great beach house!
Great place for young and old! 30 second walk to the beach. Well stocked with anything you need. Even beach toys!
Everything about this property was amazing. Location, amenities, management...all top notch. They have provided everything you need for an amazing beach vacation . Don’t bother to pack anything except your personal needs!!! Our entire family had a fabulous time! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home!!!
Perfect vacation rental.
We had a great experience. The home is literally seconds from the beach. It was very well stocked. Honestly no need to bring beach towels, chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards or sand toys. We appreciated the nice BBQ and well stocked kitchen. Will definitely return!
We enjoyed another perfect vacation at the Whalen Family Beach House! We did not "want" for anything. This home has everything you need for a great vacation. Such a special place with plenty of space and the perfect loft for the kids to hang out. We can't wait to visit next summer!
Just off the beach!
Our family thought this was the perfect location. Just a couple houses off of the beach. Insulated us from too much noise and activity but a 30 second walk and you're toes are in the sand. The house was great. Nice and clean. We had everything we needed. My daughter is 18 months old, and there are a lot of stairs. However, they have built in gates and extra gates downstairs. My older nephews enjoyed staying in the loft.
We were able to walk nearly everywhere in Mission Beach.
Would definitely stay again!!
Would definitely return
Great location. About a 5 minute walk to Belmont Park and a 30 second walk to the boardwalk/beach. Parking spots are great which is tough to come by in that area and those properties. Can easily accommodate 10 people. Very “domestic.” I normally bring pots and pans with me, but it was completely unnecessary this time. I cooked a meal for 10 easily-they even had a food processor and a knife sharpener. Only issue I had was that the washer and dryer were in the garage which u cannot access from the house. U have to walk outside and around and you share it with another property. Other than that, which was merely a slight annoyance, the property was great. Bottom line is that I would book it again.
Mission Beach is a lively beach community with something for everyone! Find out why we love it so much!

Ride bikes on the boardwalk for miles without ever crossing a street. We are within walking distance of many activities. You are just a short drive to world-class shopping in La Jolla. Sea World is five minutes away ! Visit Old Town, the San Diego Zoo, Coronado Island, and Balboa Park. Go to the horse race in Del Mar. Take the train to Tijuana. Take your kids to Lego Land.
