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.

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.

Very spacious

  • 3 of 5

This is our 2nd time staying here and the reason we love it is because of the open concept. We have 3 grown children who will come to visit and sometimes stay a few nights. We would definitely stay here again.

Great place to be for a relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a really great time. It was only steps from the beach and there was plenty of places to eat. We all enjoyed the spacious rooms and the fully equipped kitchen for meal preparation if we decided to stay in for a home cooked meal. We all enjoyed the evening bike rides we took together for a bit of sight seeing thanks to them for being available to us. Overall it was a great stay and just what the doctor ordered!!!!!

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.

Summer 2017

  • 1 of 5

I'm going to be honest.. My family and I have been vacationing in Mission Beach for over 5 years, so we've stayed in many rentals. The location of this rental is perfect, close to everything. Working with the owner was a pleasure, she was very responsive. This rental could really use some maintenance and TCL, hole in walls (second floor bedroom), wood chipping of second floor bathroom door, window treatments in all rooms really need to be replaced (some blinds barely hanging on, we were afraid to open or close them, i.e. in the kitchen). You might want to confirm when this unit was remodeled, our stay was during the last week of July 2017 and it definitely needed it..

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. My pictures and words in my VRBO ad are completely true. SPACIOUS, (you can see how big the kitchen, family room, and master bedroom are), AFFORDABLE (very affordable for a 3 bedroom, that sleeps 8) and REMODELED (kitchen, baths, all new flooring paint and furniture). We are getting new windows and doors December 2017. This is my business and retirement, and I take pride in remodeling a portion every year. It is clean, comfortable place for a family vacation. Unfortunately, the guest after you burnt my new carpet in the master bedroom in 5 different locations, imagine how I feel! If you rented a week later, that would be on your complaint list as well. I rent a different condo every year in Mammoth for my family, and we stay at affordable condos. They are very nice for what I am paying for. I don't complain. I would love to stay at the brand new ski-in ski- out condos I see that look perfect, but I choose not to spend my money that way. IF YOU WANT AN AFFORDABLE, CLEAN, REMODELED CONDO THIS IS THE PLACE FOR YOU, PLEASE SEE MY PHOTOS, THAT IS WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE. My condo is not perfect, it is a VERY comfortable, clean affordable condo. IF THIS IS FOR YOU, WELCOME :)!

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
