About The Owner

Tim and Stanna McDougal

We are so fortunate to have rented to some wonderful people. Thanks!

The Owner purchased this condo in 2008

Why The Owner chose San Diego County

We chose to build in Mission Beach because it has so much to offer. We are water skiiers and enjoy the bay and the beach and all the water sports it has to offer. We also love how central the property is to what San Diego has to offer. You can be as busy or as laid back as you want.

What makes this condo unique

We are able to offer parking in an area where parking is at a premium. Within walking distance, there are great restaurants, coffee, sports, bike rental and a spa plus lots more.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just want to say thank you for a wonderful vacation at your beach rental. We just returned home yesterday and we were only sorry we couldn't stay another week. It was a beautiful house, very comfortable and accommodated us well. The location was perfect as we enjoyed the beach and the bay! Thanks again, hopefully we can do it again next year!!

Wonderful Family Townhome

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at this townhome. The owner was very responsive and accomodating - we only had 5 nights to spend and most properties wanted a week minimum. The location was perfect - we were glad that we didn't choose an oceanfront accomodation - too much activity there but we were just steps away from the beach on a quiet walkway. The best thing that we did was rent bikes just around the corner at Cheap Rentals. We kept them for the whole stay and stored them safely in the garage. There are bike paths all around Mission Bay and along the Ocean Walk. We enjoyed the patio in our quiet courtyard. We have two college aged kids and it was great that everyone was able to have his own space. It was nice to have beach chairs and umbrella there for our use. We enjoyed walking to many restaurants in the area. I would have liked to have had some basic cleaning supplies available- a counter cleaner for example. Thank you for a very nice family trip.

Just a wonderful place to stay and great location.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the property and it was just perfect for us. It was walking distance to everything (beach, shops, & restaurants). We came out for a football game and Christmas. The property has everything you would ever need and then some. When we come back we will look into renting again if it is available. Very clean and lots of room. It is just like the pictures no surprises.

Great for Families and Kids

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this location. The unit is very good for families, with enough space for 8 but also enough places to get away and not feel on top of each other. The location is prime too, just a short walk to the beach or bay. We were also very close to our favorite restaurant "the Mission" The owners were very easy to deal with, they responded quickly to any questions we had and the property was well maintained. Highly recommended. On a side note; we were coming from out of state and didn't want to rent a car. It is possible if you're willing to walk, Ralph's is a bit of a trek but doable.

The perfect spot!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to stay. A block from the bay and two from the beach, this house is in the perfect location. You are close to everything you need but aren't bombarded by all the hustle and bustle right on the beach. The owners are incredibly kind and responsive and helped to make sure our stay was perfect. Everything from the bedrooms being on different floors to the beautiful rooftop deck was ideal for a group visiting San Diego together. There isn't a rating high enough to express how much we loved this rental.

A definite home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot fully express how much a group of my friends and I enjoyed this place! Location was perfect where we were literally steps away from the ocean and the bay.

Attention to detail in the decor and what a guest might need during their stay was so impressive. It truly felt like home during our stay there.

We plan on coming back to San Diego in the near future and would definitely love to stay there again!!
