Mission Beach is one of San Diego's premier beaches. Stroll down to the beach boardwalk where you can roller blade, walk, jog, bike, or just hang out to watch the people go by. If calmer water is your preference head down to the bay to access multiple activities such as sailing, kayaking, windsurfing, or jet skiing. The bay is perfect if you have small children. Belmont Park Amusement Center is about 150 yards away for kids to indulge upon when not basking in the sun or playing on the beach. Just the two of you, have an enchanting evening on the beach at multiple conveniently located eateries. Just to the north you will find many Mission Beach landmarks such as the Crystal Pier, or the Green Flash Restaurant (I recommend the Huevos Rancheros for breakfast); stop at the Lahaina Beach Bar (great patio deck overlooking the beach) for burgers and beer. And within walking distance in Belmont Park, you can't beat Cannonball for the beach vibe, food and cocktails!

Many San Diego's attractions such as Sea World, the Downtown Gaslamp District, Old Town San Diego, Seaport Village, Petco Park, and the world famous San Diego Zoo, are a short drive away. Enjoy an evening cruise on the Bahia Belle, a 'Turn of the Century' style Mississippi-style sternwheeler boat featuring dancing, live music, and cocktails while cruising the bay adjacent to your private vacation home.

All the amenities for enjoying the beach are included - beach towels, beach chairs, coolers, as well as a variety of beach toys for the little ones. So please come and visit us and enjoy all that Mission Beach and San Diego has to offer! Hope to see you soon!!

About The Owner

I purchased this vacation rental because I enjoy being around the beach. Whether swimming, running the boardwalk, kayaking around the bay, or enjoying the many fine restaurants, Mission Beach is a fun place to visit year-round.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2007

Why The Owner chose San Diego County

I wanted a location that was centrally located between the beach, bay, and Belmont Park. I also wanted a location that was reasonably quiet, not too close to the amusement park or the boardwalk. Luckily, I found a property where I could be at the bay, beach or park, in less than two minutes of walking. Many of my guests have praised the outstanding location. Families enjoy the quietness, safety, and convenience of the location.

What makes this condo unique

Guests enjoy outdoor gas grills provided for each unit. In addition, beach toys, coolers, beach chairs and towels are provided for the guests enjoyment during their stay. Besides the spacious accommodations, guests come back for repeat visits because of the individual care and attention that they receive during their visits. I also enjoy surfing, kayaking, and swimming in the ocean. My property provides a nice, convenient, centrally located site to stage my gear for all water activities.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved the condo. It had a lot of room with a great location. It was perfect for our family of four.

The condo was awesome. You have been great to work with and were very responsive when we had any issues. We'll definitely consider renting it again in the future. We're not sure if we're making our summer vacation in San Diego next year, but when we do come back, we'll have no problem renting from you again. I'll also recommend the condo to anyone else I know who plans on vacations in S.D.

Thnaks again,

Comfortable little destination

  • 4 of 5

I reserved the condo for a girls trip. The condo was clean, and VERY CLOSE to either the beach or the bay. We enjoyed not having to drive anywhere. The beds were nice, and bathrooms were as well. The living room had very comfortable furniture as well. If you are used to having air conditioning you are in for a hot few days. Many fans were available, but no air conditioning took some getting used to. We bought more fans.

The owner and his assistant were wonderful to work with and I received my security deposit back in a timely manner. Overall our stay was amazing and would recommend it!!

Wonderful Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Decided to take a last minute vacation to San Diego this summer and boy am I glad we did! This place was perfect! Close to everything! A short walk to bayside or Oceanside made for unbeatable convenience. Also, Belmont was within walking distance which was nice for the teenagers and us because we literally didn't have to drive anywhere.

The rooms and bathrooms are spacious. Beds are comfortable and linens were clean. THe house has 2 rollaway beds, which we didn't end up using but I imagine those would be useful for other families.

Living room area is big too! Plenty of room for our family to watch movies at night.

My favorite part about the home was the large downstairs patio. Plenty of seating and shade to enjoy the wonderful California weather. We ate dinner on the patio every night while our 2 year old ran a muck and played. So nice not to worry about people on the boardwalk running him over!

All in all this place was great!!! Would recommend to anyone and everyone!

Perfectly located beach house

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time renting this cute house. Sleeps 6 comfortably. Well stocked kitchen, and linen closet. Perfect location between the bay and the beach. Ronni was a pleasure to work with. Will be staying here again.

The stay was perfect! Everything that you needed was there. Fresh paint, new furniture, extra roll away beds made it such a nice stay! Manager was easy to work with. All new towels. Very clean. Biggest thing needed which is there is the laundry machine! You don't realize how much you will use it! Grab a rental bike down the street and that's all you will need all week - it's super close to everything. You can walk to the bay or the beach side which we loved having both options with the kids.

First VRBO rental; how lucky we were!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6; 4 kids ages 13 to 4 stayed here and it left a memorable impression on all of us! This house was our first rental ever, and we certainly felt like we hit the lottery. The house was clean and welcoming and so pleasant. Balconies, deck for meals, BBQ grill, stocked kitchen, clean extra sets of sheets and towels. To top it off, the washer and dryer made "living" there for a week really feel like home. No hotel stay will ever come close to this experience. We will for sure book our week next year and will hopefully have our friends rent the lower unit at the same time.
