About Graham

My aunt and uncle have had a home on this court since 1946. I grew up with them and their daughter, my cousin, every summer of my life! What a lucky girl. When a cottage on the same court became available in 1976, we bought it. Since then, the termites had a field day and it needed to be torn down and rebuilt. We did that in 2008 and have been renting it ever since.

My husband and I live in San Jose. I'm not desperate to rent this home but will share it with people who have families and will not smoke or party. This is an exceptional court and I would never want to inconvenience or disturb my neighbors. I am very picky when it comes to renters.

Graham purchased this house in 1976

Why Graham chose San Diego County

This is a perfect home for multiple generation to enjoy a vacation together.

What makes this house unique

It's on a quiet court with no cars nearby. It has a two car garage which is a big plus at Mission Beach. It is within walking distance of a large supermarket, many restaurants and a large hotel with boat rentals and a spa.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I can't believe the space. Where do I begin, Jon said he loved the idea of going upstairs and going to sleep in the cool bedroom on the very top with the sound of the ocean to put him to sleep. Actually, I loved the idea that we could get away from the group if we wanted to have out own space. I know Jon loved the hot shower in the morning. Thw showers are incredible; I loved every one of them, the tile choices, colors, glass doors, etc. It was fun having our family come too. One day we had mom and dad come out for the day. They loved sitting in the living room looking out at the ocean. They were so pleased to be invited. We played cards, ate, rested, took them up to the seawall. Dad and Jon sat out on the patio enjoying the out of doors. With mom just turning 90 and dad at 93, it was an easy place to come and just relax for the day.

During our week there, my sister from South Dakota was visiting so it was a treat for her to be at the beach as well. She still sits in the sun for a tan.

Our kids loved coming out and bringing their kids too. We always went shell hunting at low tide, which was almost every morning that week. I would open my eyes in the morning to two little girls looking at me (waiting for me to wake up) and saying, "Gram, will you take us shell hunting?"

For me, I loved the kitchen and the big table for eating. It was usually full for every meal.

I think you did a phenomenal job decorating the house. I love every aspect of it. Emma (age 5) said, "Look, there's a library by the steps".

Thank you for letting us enjoy a week at the beach. It is one we will always remember.

Great bones, history, comfort and location!

  • 4 of 5

The long-time family owners are proud and picky, which has produced a warm, fun and functional spot that was perfect for our family of three adults and three kids. The location in North Mission Beach is quiet and literally steps to the ocean and the great boardwalk, a few more steps to the quiet, more peaceful bay, and a few more steps to the frenzied fun of South Pacific Beach's array of restaurants, bars, shops, ice cream stands, etc. The house itself has been remodeled and has great appliances, sturdy showers, good beds, and neat spaces to relax. And a two-car garage! Bring your own beach towels. Virtually everything else you'll need is provided, including great beach equipment like chairs, boogie boards, etc. We had a great week there!

Summer 2017 Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This beach house was just perfect for our family vacation. House was clean and almost seemed brand new. Everyone had their own bathroom and bedroom. This beach house centrally located to shopping, restaurants boardwalk and pier. We couldn't have asked for a better week. Weather was just beautiful just like our beach house :).

Thank you for sharing.

Absolute perfection!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd year staying on Windemere court in this dreamy beach house. My children chase the ice cream truck everyday after endless hours at the beach. A few steps to the sand and just a few more to some great coffee, breakfast, lunch, cocktails, and ice cream. Couldn't imagine staying anywhere else! Thank you Janet and Graham for being such fabulous hosts.

Beautiful & perfectly located

  • 5 of 5

Perfectly sized house for our three seperate families. We each had our own rooms, own bathrooms w/ showers, and large common areas and patio. It was really nice to be able to run the kids up from the beach to nap, use the restroom, grab lunch, etc. It was close enough to Belmont Park to walk with the kids, but far enough away to avoid the noise and crowds. We had an awesome visit!

Perfect Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

I can not say enough good things about this home. When we arrived it was super clean and everything is clearly labeled so you can find anything neeeded easily. It has everything provided for a perfect beach vacation. The size was perfect for three couples and kids. I was pleasantly surprised at its location between the beach and the bay, it is at maximum a minute or two walk to either one. It is walking distance to anything that you could want and perfectly in the middle of all the restaurants and entertainment. Graham the property manager is a dream to deal with and responds quickly. We loved the house so much we rented it again for next year. I know we found our beach home and you can too when you stay here.
