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.

Great Condo for Mission Beach fun!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time at Mission Beach this summer staying in this cool condo. It was clean and well stocked with beach toys of all kinds. We shopped around for places to stay near the beach and we were so pleased to find this nice of condo this close to the beach at this price. We contacted the owners the week before we arrived asking about pickle ball in San Diego and they provided a printout for us detailing the pickle ball venues in our area. We wholeheartedly recommend this property.

Needs Renovation

  • 2 of 5

Furniture, bedding, windows, doors all need attention. Furniture and carpet smells of WAY too many visitors. Pillows all old and stained from way too much use (bring your own pillow cases). BBQ grill was worthless. Wood trim of doors and windows old & rotted and either seized open or closed. Fly's and gnats EVERYWHERE... might just a Mission Beach thing, the whole area is filthy, and trash cans overflow throughout the alley. This unit is on the second and third floor so you have to like exercise. Third floor sleeping area is a loft with a king bed and what used to be an outdoor deck that was enclosed to fit a couple of twin beds... this remodel was clearly done without permit. The floor wasn't leveled so you'll sleep somewhat down hill in the twin beds. Bring your own bikes, beach chairs and umbrella... what's offered is also in disrepair.

Won't revisit.

Owner's Response: Hi Ron, I am sorry you didn't enjoy your stay. We put in new carpet this June 2017, which is exactly 1 month before your stay. We also have a new leather couch, futon, on June 2017 as well. We have 12 working bikes, and if any of them were not working, I leave my telephone number and email and I encourage guests to call if they have any questions or concerns. In my VRBO ad, it clearly says that the condo is on the 2nd floor, so I am sorry if that was not clear to you. I will check the pillows, and get new if needed. We wash the sheets, change the linens before each new guest. FUTURE GUESTS, PLEASE read other reviews, and email me if you have any questions! Thank you, Susan

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.
