Perfect for large family get-togethers!
Perfect for family get togethers. This comfortable panoramic view bay front 4 bedroom/3 bath condo is right on Sail Bay and just one and a half blocks from the Pacific Ocean at Mission Beach. The sand and boardwalk are right below you. Just walk downstairs and your toes are in the sand! The front is all glass on both levels with a long balcony and BBQ just off the living room.
On the first level (one floor up from the sand), the living room-dining room combination has a fantastic view of the bay as does the recently remodeled California-style open kitchen with lots of counter space and storage. Note that the common area is on the smaller side for the number of guests the unit can hold, but it is cozy and welcoming! There is also one bedroom with twin beds and a desk and a bathroom with a shower. We have installed a full-size stacked front-loading washer/dryer just off the kitchen, for your convenience.
Bayfront condo Details: On the second level (two floors up from the sand) is a master bedroom with magnificent view of the bay, a high open-beam wood ceiling, & a comfortable king-size bed. The second bedroom has a queen bed & the third bedroom has bunk beds with a double on the bottom & single on top. All rooms have high open-beam ceilings and one even has a peak of the ocean.
The condo is fully furnished with high quality linens, a fully-equipped kitchen with an under the cabinet microwave oven, electric range and cook top, refrigerator, dishwasher, garbage disposal, under cabinet lighting etc., and everything you need for enjoying family dinners at home! Large flatscreen TV, DVD/CD player, cable Internet with WiFi, telephone. Stereo/CD stereo player in the master bedroom, too. We provide beach towels and sand toys for the kids.
Parking is a single car port (will handle two small cars in tandem)with additional free overnight public parking a 3 minute minute walk away at El Carmel Street. ASK us if this unit has AC!

Description does not fully disclose all information
While the description is right that it's steps from the sand, they don't disclose that you may not be able to swim in the water and that it's the dirtiest part of the bay. The bay directly in front of the property is lined by drainage outlets with signs stating "Danger Keep Clear" and warnings to not swim within 72 hours of rainfall. In walking along the bay, I counted a total of 5 drainage outlets with 4 of those being directly in front of this property.
I expressed my concerns immediately to the property manager in writing and stated that we specifically picked this place because of our family situation which required a place that allowed our kids to swim within view of where we were staying. I further stated in writing that we would be leaving immediately to find a different place that met our needs and asked if there could be any sort of refund. In response, she said there has been quite a bit of moisture lately and guided me to a safe place to swim that was a mile away and said there were many other activities in San Diego. I restated that we were specifically looking for a place where we could swim and when I spoke to Nancy on the phone the next day, she said she likely could not give a refund because I made a mistake by not letting her know earlier we were leaving. When I reminded her that I told her in writing that we would be leaving right after arrival, she said she didn't think I was serious and said she can't give a refund because the owner's need the money for their mortgage. As a property owner myself, I can relate to the need to cover the mortgage. However, I don't think that the tenant should suffer because of this and because of a description that does not fully disclose the conditions of the location.
The beach toys and chairs that they promise you can use are also worthless. There were two broken chairs, some broken sand toys and a cracked skim board.
The place is also very musty and could definitely use some updates. The carpet was very worn and didn't feel clean.
I've been to San Diego many times and love the mission bay area. However, I would never stay in this location again. It's a big bay with plenty of other properties that have great swimming.
Nice condo right on the bay. We had a great time. Kitchen is well stocked. Lots of beach supplies, including towels. Plenty of room for a large group. Nice to have one parking place and the jetty is a short walk where more parking is available. The beach is a short two blocks away. the weather was perfect for our family/friend reunion.

Beautiful! Just what I expected in a beach house! Nancy is the best!
The place was exactly what I consider to be a beach house! Perfect for kids too. I hope she has a smaller place for me when I want to get away all by myself! This place is a wonderful place to spend time in San Diego! Close to everything!!!
Thank you so much, Diane. It was a pleasure hosting your lovely family. I am always entertained by the Sail Bay views; the sunsets, the paddle boats all lit up at night cruising the moonlit bay, the lights from the homes on the other side reflected in the water, catamarans flipping over and getting turned right side up again, sabat races, the UCSD female outrigger rowing teams practicing in the morning and evening, seabirds on the shore, but my favorite time is the soft colors and stillness of the early mornings. And if you sleep on the Murphy bed in the livingroom, you can wake up to that view! We will look forward to hearing from you again soon. Nancy
Fantastic location and views!
We rented this location for a long weekend family getaway. There were eight of us and there we never felt crowded. Having 3 full bathrooms was really convenient. I called the day of my arrival to ask about an early check in and they were very accommodating (Thank you Angelina for your help!). Kitchen was adequately stocked with common items. My family all said they would stay here again.
We're thrilled to hear you had such a great stay! We look forward to having you back in the future!
The View was Awesome the condo was run down!
The condo was disappointing. It was run down and the carpet was filthy! The refrigerator froze all our produce and leaked water on the floor. The bathroom door knob in the bathroom next to the master
would stick and lock you in. It would take a lot of struggling to get out. The place needs a deep cleaning and improvements made if you want to keep quality renters. It looked like one too many parties have happened here.
Thank you for providing such valuable feedback and suggestions. I'm sorry you found the carpet to be so dirty. We have since cleaned the carpets and repaired the issue with the door, plus we're also trying to get approval from the owner for new carpeting. We agree, the condo can certainly use a deep clean to include fresh paint as well. Our busiest time of year is Spring and Summer, which means we typically have back to back reservations. This means we can sometimes have just five hours to address any maintenance issues and clean the property before the next guests check in. Once our peak season comes to a close, we will finally have some vacant days which will allow us to clean carpets, paint, address maintenance issues, deep clean, refresh the properties, etc.
I can assure you that we do have a very strict no party policy for all of our rentals. We do our best to screen each and every guest and we will not rent to anyone under the age of 25 in order to hopefully lessen the chances of this happening.
Thank you again for taking the time to provide your feedback. We greatly appreciate it.
