Great House, Great Views, right on the Bay

  • 5 of 5

In San Diego for a convention brought my family and managers. The location is very convenient to everything we needed. The interior was beautiful, really well setup, big and cozy. The three full bathrooms were very handy! The views are great! We all enjoyed coffee on the balcony in the morning!

The property owner Shirley was great to work with. Great Experience for all!

Very high-end house w/great bay views and walking distance to everything

  • 5 of 5

Had a boys' trip for Breeders Cup at Del Mar and this was a convenient location for that and especially for walking to all the Pacific Beach bars and attractions. We stayed on the 4-bedroom 2nd Floor, which included a 2-car tandem garage. It was modern, clean and had killer views, being right on Mission Bay. Walking distance to everything we wanted to do, including Catamaran Resort, which had rental boats, etc. Also right on the boardwalk so biking and walking is a great added attraction. House had everything we needed and Shirl the manager was excellent. Hanging out on the patio was the best part!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to review the property. I am so glad you enjoyed the property and location. It is some times difficult to convey to prospective guests how important a good location can be. It is so fantastic to be right on the beach in north Mission Beach. The ocean bay side is peaceful and beautiful and you can easily cross over to the ocean as only 90 steps to the west. Not only do you have the spectacular panoramic views of beach and bay from the property, you are close to everything. It was a pleasure providing accommodations, and we look forward to seeing you again. All the best, Shirl

Beautiful home with great location

  • 5 of 5

We rented out the entire second floor of the home. The home itself is beautiful and very well maintained. The house does not have air conditioning, which is not a big deal in San Diego. The location was amazing. We took morning walks on the path by the Bay and then headed across the street to the ocean for the day. The parking space is super small though, so be careful with larger vehicles. We rented a mini van and managed to scratch the side of it on one of our turns in. Its doable, just be very careful. Great stay overall!

A Great Uniqley LARGE Place

  • 5 of 5

Being in San Diego with three nieces and one nephew all of which were flown in from ND and Minn was in itself beautiful. Adding this large gorgeous condo on Mission Bay was icing on the cake. It is loaded with views on the bay side with about one hundred steps to get to the ocean side. Well kept, great furniture flat screen TV's every where. Kitchen has everything you need so there is a lot of money to be saved by not hitting the restaurants and we did just that.

Very Happy

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 10 enjoyed our stay at the villa. We rented the second floor which was perfect for us. We especially enjoyed the balcony where we ate most of our meals. The view from the balcony is fabulous, especially at night. The beach on the bay was perfect for my 4 year old great granddaughter. The villa was well stocked with beach chairs, boggie boards, and sand toys. There was always a breeze so an air conditioner is not needed. Also,

Shirley was easy to work with. She even showed us through the house soon after our arrival.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you enjoyed your stay at the Villa Italia. It is a great location and the balcony is large enough for a bigger family. The panoramic beach and water front views are incredible. Because we have a sliding glass door in each of the four bedrooms, the breezes are amazing. I am glad you enjoyed those gentle coastal breezes. We would love to have you back the next time your travels bring you back our way. It was a pleasure meeting you, and again, so very happy you had a great experience and the property worked out so well for you and your family! All the best, Shirl

Beautiful property with breathtaking views of the bay!!! ❤️

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful place to stay!!! We stayed one week on the second floor of this beautiful villa and wished we could have stayed longer!!! Everything was neat and clean and it was very spacious. It all looked exactly like the pictures. Even though the weather wasn't that great for us for the week that we stayed we still had an awesome time!!! Just the views from our balcony alone were worth the stay!!! Loved the location!!! Close to everything. You have the bay right in front of you and the beach just steps across the street!!! It was great!!! A big thank you to Shirley who was so sweet throughout our booking process. You were so helpful throughout it all!!! Thank you again Shirl!!! We all absolutely loved the place and love San Diego and cant wait to go back already!!! ❤.

About Shirley Rast - Owner/Manager

I have my own property in Mission Beach and manage this beautiful building. I love the area and know how important it is to find a well cared for, well equipped, and clean property in an exceptional and quiet location in Mission Beach. Please feel free to call to discuss this property. We also have the three bedroom, 2.5 bath on the ground level available as a rental on this same site -#265413.

Why Shirley Rast - Owner/Manager chose Mission Beach

Beauty on the beach. This property is one of the very newest and nicest properties in Mission Beach. We invite you to view the map. This is a prime area of north mission beach...bay front. You can see how close you are to the ocean side, yet right on the beach on the quieter bay front location. It is very important to have a location on the beach, bay front that has close and easy access to the ocean side. You can literally walk to the ocean boardwalk in about 2 minutes. Feel free to call for the exact address to google map it. It is also close to restaurants and shops that you can easily walk to. For recreation just outside your door, you have miles of flat boardwalk for walking, jogging, roller-blading, or skateboarding. The boardwalk borders the beach so you never leave the beach when on the boardwalk. The boardwalk curves away from this property allowing you some additional privacy. There is a beach volleyball net a few doors away for the public to enjoy. You can rent water sports equipment either at the Catamaran or the Mission Bay Aquatic Center...both just a short walk away. This bay is perfect for kayaking, paddleboarding or renting a small sail boat. You can play on the shore and build sand castles or swim. Just cross to the west for ocean activities....about a 2 minute walk to the ocean side boardwalk from the property. There is even a cross walk for crossing Mission Boulevard which is the main street that runs north and south right down the center of Mission Beach dividing the ocean side from the bay side. This property is also quiet and far enough away from Mission Boulevard which is important. We have many permanent residents residing next to and behind this building and they are very respectful and quiet. This is not a party area which is good for our guests. There are some nearby playgrounds for little kids as well. We have an outdoor community half basketball court and tennis court.

What makes this condo unique

The board walk curves out away from this property allowing for a 'private sandy beach area' directly in front of this building. This building lot was very carefully chosen. There were actually two lots that had older homes that were demolished to allow enough space for the spectacular Villa Italia.

Nothing was spared in the architecture and building of this masterpiece. Enjoy curved etched entry doors with decorative iron accents. The glass panels open to bring in the Pacific Ocean breezes. The floors are adorned with stone surrounded by smooth rounded walls, canned light throughout, granite in the kitchen as well as marble and stone in the baths. Each room has a flat screen television and the living room has a gas fireplace for those cozy fall evenings. It is hard to match the location, architecture, and overall beauty of this property.

You are on the beach - Mission Beach
Car: not necessary

This property is located in north Mission Beach and is right on the sand with panoramic views overlooking (Sail Bay). You are about 80 steps to the ocean which is across Mission Boulevard to the west of the bay side. Outdoor recreation paradise outside your door. Sail, kayak, swim, and paddle board on this expansive ocean bay right in front of your property. Walk out your door onto the beach and into the water. No vehicles drive in front of you, allowing endless panoramic views of this beautiful expansive Sail Bay. Unlimited opportunities for beach play, beach volley ball, sand castles, walking, jogging, biking, roller blading, skate boarding, or basking in the sun on the beach.

Ocean and ocean bay - best of both worlds: If you should desire experiencing the ocean side of Mission Beach, it is just a short 80 steps to the west. Close walk to restaurants and shops.

The bay has so many benefits. It is much quieter than the ocean side. It is nice to be in a quiet area so that you can sleep well at night and then enjoy ocean or bay side during the day.

Close to everything San Diego has to offer: You are about 15 minutes from San Diego, the San Diego World Famous Zoo, Balboa Park (with live theaters and museums), Old Town, Birch Aquarium, U.S.S. Midway Aircraft Carrier Museum, Mission Valley shopping centers, and the San Diego Int'l Airport. Sea World is about a 5 minute drive just across the bay and they have a firework display every night in the summer season and every Saturday night after summer that can be viewed from your patio....quite spectacular to see the sky light up just outside your private patio.

Location is key when choosing a vacation. This location has it all! You are close to San Diego in a beach paradise with ocean bay on one side and ocean just 80 steps to the west. You are in a quiet area with easy access to the busier ocean area.

Great for families and much to do in local area....something for all ages.

Golf: We have many wonderful golf courses in San Diego. The closest is Mission Bay Golf Course about 2.5 miles away

Restaurants: Many nearby restaurants

Shopping: Grocery store is within 1/2 mile. Ralphs is a large grocery store with extended hours and underground parking and within 1/2 mile. Trader Joes and Sprouts is about one mile away in Pacific Beach.

Shopping: Near great shopping center in Mission Valley (Fashion Valley and Mission Valley) - about 5 miles away. We have outlet stores in outlying areas.

Restaurants: There are wonderful restaurants within walking distance of this property. San Diego and adjoining areas have great restaurants and all within about 15 minutes from this location.
