Your Hosts: Small personalized friendly hands on service is our business model. We have owned and managed vacation rental homes formerly 30 years. We provide hands on service, speak with each potential vacationer before reserving your dates and personally greet each vacationer upon arrival. We believe that selecting the right rental for your vacation stay is important and want to ensure that you are selecting the best rental for you needs. With a long time family history in San Diego going back to the turn of the century, combined with roots from the midwest, we have both pride in San Diego, and good old fashioned values. The rentals showcased on this site, reflect, our goal to provide you with quality accommodations, along with personal service from the start of your reservation process, to your final departure. We like to think we attract vacationers who appreciate receiving the exact rental that is advertised on our websites and desire a well maintained vacation home or rental that much care is taken to provide. In return, appreciate and care for the rentals during their stay and respect the quiet surroundings of the bayside. The environment we provide and the bayside in Mission Beach is a more low key area with an amazing location on the waterfront.
Why Cynthia chose Mission Beach
1. Its beach front property for #1. 2. Its gorgeous, well cared for and maintained to a higher level. 3. Its extra large by Mission Beach standards. 4. It actually has enough room for 12 people in normal beds, no hidden beds for you to have to use. There are very few homes in Mission Beach who truly have a large enough home to accommodate 10 to 12 people. What's not to love?
What makes this Condo unique
Large Spacious Bedrooms, and home, are the key for this vacation home. Most rentals in the beach area, are a tight squeeze at best. The Great Blue Heron is a lovely vacation home, where you can have up top 12 people together, with out feeling on top of each other. One of the better choices for large groups who want to come together and spend time, but desire more space.

Exceptional, Clean, Great Location, Well Appointed, and Wonderful Host!
What an amazing week we had in Mission Beach! This location is close to everything and while in the middle of a hopping beach town, when we were in the unit or down in front of it, it felt like our own little slice of heaven.
The house was very large, bright, fresh smelling and clean, comfortable, and had every little thing we needed to feel right at home. We had our own parking spot (but be aware it is tight) and really came to love this beautiful area and home. Thank you Cyndi for being such a conscience host. We can't wait to come back!
Thank you Milena for such a kind and wonderful review.
Guest such as you and your family, are a gift to me.
I never, ever take respectful, lovely guests for granted.
My entire goal in this business is that you have a wonderful time and that the home was as presented.
I would love to have you back anytime.
In one word - PERFECTION!!!
Having a few conversations and emails with Cyndi from the Great Blue Heron rental, I thought I knew what to expect, a clean nice house. Well, this was so beyond our expectations that I'm not sure how to let others considering this house know just how terrific our stay was. You know when staying at a rental or hotel that putting food on a counter or using kitchen utensils,etc isn't done without cleaning them yourself first, right? Well, I can tell you with that this rental was so immaculate when we arrived that we cleaned nothing beforehand!!! ( 2 staff clean from 9:00-3:45 the day you arrive) That included 10 of us with 2,3,7,9 year old grandchildren. I can't write enough superlatives to describe this wonderful stay!!! The location is perfect. Windows and balcony facing the bay, 2 parking spaces (a premium perk in California) full kitchen and two floors of nice size bedrooms with balconies, full modern kitchen with enough seating for all, and a living room with comfortable couches and large t.v. (used once for kids break time) We never felt crowded with 10. I researched for weeks to find the perfect place for our 1st full family vacation, probably about 50-60 hours altogether.( I am admittedly obsessive about where we stay for our own vacations let alone vacationing with small children) It was so worth it because we got an amazing location, quiet bay waters and clean sand beach for the toddlers, a short walk to the ocean for less tame activities, and centrally located for all driveable attractions. The best though is conversing with Cyndi. She was helpful, accommodating, and genuinely cares about you having a memorable time at the Blue Heron . If you decide to rent here, make sure to spend a few minutes with Cyndi, it will be so worth it. The purpose of this family vacation was to create lasting memories and staying is amazing accommodations run by this special woman made a year of planning and every penny spent completely worth it.
First let me express and say thank you for this spectacular review. You captured with your words and your experience, my goals, hopes and hard work for each and everyone's vacation experience to be for them.
I loved having your family and especially meeting you and have some fun chats as well.
I am so honored that you choose The Great Blue Heron for your families' gathering to spend that precious time together. I know how much it meant to you and that you and your husband, really wanted this to be a special memorable vacation.
Your grand children will look back with found memories and you and your husband have this family time to hold close to your hearts.
Thank you again Kathy for giving me back with your words such a warm and appreciative gift.
And to top it off, your 50th anniversary copy of "To Kill A Mocking Bird" Novel, was so very special, as you know, in so many ways to me.
This is why I still do this work after 30 years.
Your tip for grooming, "Rinse Twice" :) :)
Great Location - Perfect Accomodations
We loved being front & center on the bay. We had most of our family join us for this week long trip to the beach and the house handled our large family extremely well.
There was room for all of us to have our own private space and the living room, kitchen and deck were spacious and fully decked out with everything you'd need for a week's stay.
We spent a number of days on the pacific side with the waves and it was only a short walk from our unit.
We would definitely recommend this.
Thank you for the great review.
It was a pleasure to have you all and for a large group, you could not have been better guests.
Anyone would be honored to have you all stay.
Best and thanks again.
Lots of fun! Fantastic 4th of July week!
Will NEVER stay anywhere else
This was our dream vacation from the moment we booked. The contract, communication and detail instructions was foreshadowing of how amazing this rental would be.
From the moment we opened the doors I knew THIS was our forever destination in San Diego. This particular rental was in the perfect location on the bay and only a few houses away from beach side. It was perfect for quiet days in the waters of the bay OR action filled days in the ocean surf.
The home itself was nicely equit AND was absolutely gorgeous. You can tell the management/owners take pride in offering these rentals.
I'm so excited that we've found such an awesome place and made a new friend in Cyndi! We even made friends with people below who have rented from her for years and a man on the corner who owns but rents from her when extended family comes in town!
Do NOT waste your time looking anywhere else... book this location now!
Ideal location for both young and old.
We loved our stay. Walked to Belmont Park every day. Plenty of room for all 9 of us. Young kids loved the bay while the older ones walked to the ocean every day. San Diego Zoo and Safari Park close by and worth visiting. To have the whole family together and create memories was awesome!
The Great Blue Heron Vacation Home, is located in the heart of Mission Beach on the bayfront. We have an excellent location over looking the beach bayside. Its a great fit for large families and provides great space for staying comfortably.
Other Activities: Rowing, Stand up paddling just to add to your adventures while you vacation.
