Bedrooms 2
Space 950 sq. ft.
Property type condo

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms w/ queen bed + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps up to 6

Situated in South Mission Beach, one block from the ocean and overlooking the bay!

This two bedroom condo is beautifully furnished with just steps to the Beach, Bay and Entertainment.

AC has become more of a must have feature on San Diego beaches during the warm months. We have added a portable AC to each of our bedrooms to keep up with our past guests' suggestions. Not having AC means that you have to sleep with your window open and this makes you more susceptible to noise (every place in Mission Beach is susceptible to noise problems regardless of what other owners tell you). Now our guests have the option of sleeping with the windows closed!

Upgraded bathrooms and open kitchen with top of the line designer stainless steel appliances.

All dishes, utensils, pots, and pans are provided for you.

Family entertainment is within walking distance. Park your car in your reserved dedicated spot and leave it! You can stroll (5 min walk) to Belmont Park, ride the Roller Coaster, buy some cotton candy and play carnival/arcade games. Bring your kids with their friends because this condo sleeps six.

The living room is equipped with a 50' Sony flat screen, cable (DVR/HD), sofa and a large chaise, in which both convert to beds (queen and twin).

In each bedroom, there is a queen bed, and 40' Sony flat screen.

The Master Bedroom has a unique designer Star Gazer ceiling complete with ceiling fan.

The Master Bath is equipped with a Jacuzzi bathtub with his and her shower heads.

Sit & relax at the cocktail table on the nice quiet balcony!

The Balcony has a view of the Bay and features a Cocktail Table that is perfect for your morning coffee or those relaxing evening drinks.

Christmas Dec 2017 in San Diego ( Unbelievable stay thanks to Lorne Jackson)

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Lorne’s place in Mission Beach from Dec 23, 2017 till Jan 1, 2018. Over the last 5 Christmas’s, we have stayed in 5 different condo’s worldwide through VRBO. Lorne Jackson, hands down, is the BEST host we have ever had. If we had any questions/concerns, I would just text Lorne and within seconds, he would reply or call with an answer.

Lorne usually greets his guests upon arrival but since we were so close to Christmas, he was away but did send Pam to greet us. Pam was a delight as she showed us around the condo and even took us down to the beach/bay area. The condo was well stocked and all we had to do was buy our groceries (eggs, milk, bread, etc). We found Ralph’s to be our best option for groceries. The local grocers are okay also but a little more pricey. Ralph’s is only 5-10 minutes from Lorne’s condo. The kids loved playing with the beach toys and we enjoyed relaxing in the beach chairs.

I had made a mistake on our reservation as I had only booked the condo till Dec 31st. Lorne was amazing enough to ignore my mistake and allow us to stay an extra night without any issues.

The only issue we had, which has nothing to do with Lorne’s condo, was with the Mission beach area being so close to the airport. The noise with planes taking off is prevalent throughout Mission beach. Nothing can be done about this since Mission beach is right over the flight zone. The quite period for air traffic is between 11PM and 6:30AM.

Thanks Lorne for being such an amazing host. We will always remember our stay at your place. One thing you may want to incorporate which we have seen at other VRBO locations is a memories diary which can be left in the condo and filled out by departing guests.

My husband, 3 year old and I had a great stay at this condo. We had everything we needed and loved the super short walk to the beach. The owner was quick to respond to any questions we had. Overall great experience.

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The condo was perfect for what we were looking for. It is so close to both the beach and the beautiful bay. The umbrella, beach chairs and beach towels were awesome to have. The whole area of South Mission Beach does have the airplane noise but the air conditioning units work great to minimize it as they stop around 11P. Thank you Lorne for your quick and attentive service. Can't wait to go back!

Perfect beach Condo

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived Loren and family made us feel right at home. Condo is beautifully decorated and homey. Has everything you need from cooler, Tupperware, beach chairs, boogie boards and more! We enjoyed the short walk to the bay which is perfect for young kids. We were beyond pleased with the condo and surrounding restaurants, markets and things to do within walking distance. Thanks for a great week! We hope to be back next year!
