About Susan Gehrke

We live in San Diego, about 30 minutes away from our rental property. Steve and I both graduated from San Diego State University, and lived down in Mission Beach, and have such fun memories from the area. Maybe our kids will (soon) live there during college!

Susan Gehrke purchased this condo in 2000

What makes this condo unique

Our family enjoys having morning coffee listening to the waves, going on long walks or bike rides to shopping and lunch. Then bringing chairs, books and boogie boards down to the sand for an afternoon of beach activity.

Love the location

  • 3 of 5

The house was hard to find. Our GPS led us to the general area but the actual address is a walkway, not a place to park the cars. For future reference it is the second drive on the right after Belmont & Beach parking. Then the garage is the first actual garage on the left. You can fit two smaller cars in the garage. A minivan and CRV were a tight squeeze. There is no other parking. The beach only allows you to be there until 3am and the street does sweeping from 8-10am. The house was fine. The kitchen and the floors were the nicest feature. It felt a little run down. The couch was old, saggy, and had holes. There is basic cable and a VHS player (if anyone has those anymore). A DVD player would be nice. The master bedroom was huge. The upstairs rooms were fine but very little light. It would be nice to have lots of hooks or racks to hang swim suits and towels on. The kitchen was stocked with the basics. More silverware and plates would have been helpful. There was a broom but it would be nice to have a dustpan in the house to sweep up the sand and crumbs. We liked that there was a washer and a dryer. A little annoying that you have to pay $1.50 per load to use it though.

We loved that we were very close to the beach and across the street of the bay. We enjoyed them both. There were tons of sand toys to play with and Boogie boards to keep us busy in the water. Only one of the bikes was useable. One had a flat tire and rim, the other the pedals would not turn.

We enjoyed ice cream at The Sweet Shoppe in Belmont Park and at The Baked Bear. Also we really enjoyed dinner at Miller's Field. (All on Mission Blvd). We loved being minutes away from Sea World. Thanks for the use of your home. We had a great week.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. All of the houses are the same with the addresses in the front (walking court side of the house), and the garages are in the back. Our couch was in fine condition, but I am sorry it did get a tear, that no-one told me about. My housekeeper said the leather had a new small hole, but then got to be about 8 inches. I would never allow that, and had it fixed immediately. Please let me know if the bikes are not in working condition, talking with other renters, they said they were working fine. I always leave my cell phone for anything a guest would need fixed, or have any questions during their stay. Thank you!

Great Family Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time during our stay-cation in South Mission Beach. The property was clean and nicely updated. There was plenty of space for all of us. I was worried that it might be a little noisy being so close to Belmont Park - but it wasn't noisy at all. The price was very affordable compared to other rental properties in the area and the owners were super easy to deal with. I highly recommend this property.

Great beach location

  • 4 of 5

The location was great. We got up three mornings and took the 30 second walk to the beach and walked the beach during low tide. Being so close to the beach was great but brings up parking problems. The garage was big enough for 1 of 2 cars but that was due more to design of my rental. Everything fit our need and not having to buy boogie boards, beach towels and other beach equipment was awesome. Overall i would use this again for sure.

Mission Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Another fabulous week vacation at Mission Beach! The house worked out perfectly for our family. We played on the beach during the day & played at Belmont Park at night. Our Stay-Cation was a success & look forward to next year.

What a great stay!

  • 4 of 5

This was such a great location for our family of six. There are beds for 6 with a futon for a couple of extra. The kitchen is stocked with kitchen supplies. I had to bring a waffle iron. The place is clean and open. If you want to use the washer bring quarters. There are beach towels, chairs, umbrella and plenty of bikes (which we used a lot).We saw a canoe in the garage but did not use. The nearest grocery store is about a 15 min drive, but you can ride a bike along the beach and arrive in 20 min. It is close to Belmont Park, Sea World and plenty of local restaurants. Everything we did was within 1/2 hr. We did go to La Jolla for sand castle building and kayaking to the sea caves. The property is a little hard to find and parking is a bit of a hassle (we had two cars). Some of the windows are stuck and are permanently open so flies get in. Don't leave your food out. I would recommend a stay here.

Great Condo!

  • 4 of 5

The condo was great! nicely equipped kitchen, really close to the beach and Belmont Park. You can see the fireworks at Seaworld from the upper balcony. Perfect for the family.

It was a little noisy in the neighborhood from some of the surrounding houses and you can hear the screams from the roller coaster - but generally quieted down enough to sleep at night.
