About the property

House, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

This charming beach cottage is the perfect solution for the smaller family on a budget. Located on a nice, quiet court in North Mission Beach, the ocean and boardwalk are just a 45 second stroll away. Fresh paint and new furnishings have recently been added by the long-time owners of this spotless home.

As a single standalone house you have a private, fenced patio and no common walls with other units like the more expensive condo properties. This is true beach living reminiscent of the small California beaches of days long past.

Located in the Historic Mission Beach section, many shops and restaurants are nearby for your convenience. With a queen bed and a queen sofa/sleeper, there is plenty of room for Mom, Dad and 2 kids. And the prices beat any hotel in town this close to the ocean. Don't think you can't still afford your vacation in this economy - this house makes it a reality.

Close to the beach cute and OLD..!!

  • 2 of 5

For the price, you pay for what you get.

The location is awesome close to everything.

But just a few upgrades and this would be a wonderful place to stay.

All in all we still had a good time but this home is probably the most run down on the block.

construction of new homes going on across sidewalk so be ready to get up bright and early.

For the Price I don't think it can be beat but just a few upgrades and this would be an awesome place to come back too.

Great location but..

  • 3 of 5

The only good thing I have to say about my experience at this beach cottage is the location. It was perfect.

One negative was the garage (which could not fit a car over 6.5 feet) and hence parking on the street, which was next to impossible in the summer. I called Dave upon arriving and discovering my car could not fit, asking for suggestions. He never returned the call. Much of our 3 night stay was moving the car and driving around to find another spot. Another negative was no satellite/cable TV as advertised. Third negative was the ill fitting screens on windows. And lastly it was dirty. My feet got filthy just walking around the house. But the location was great.. only reason for the stars..

In need of some ceiling fans, otherwise quite nice.

  • 4 of 5

The house is pretty much 1942 original. It needs ceiling fans to allow for air circulation. Other than that, it met our needs very nicely.

Fabulous Location

  • 3 of 5

the location is great, steps to the beach, bay and restaurants. the house is comfortable and has everything you need, comfy bed and nice bath. Didn't cook so can't comment on the kitchen. My issue is that most of the blinds are broken, windows don't stay open and about half the windows don't lock which made me uncomfortable. It is great that it has a 1 car garage but I barely got my jeep cherokee into it, don't bring anything bigger.

Great location, great space, great staff!

  • 5 of 5

Myself, husband and 2 babies stayed here for a week and we LOVED it! It was clean, quiet and steps from the beach! There is a beach bike rental place next door and the owner Dennis was so nice! We never had to pull our car out of the garage! It was stocked with everything we needed (towels, dishes and even beach toys) If we had any questions at all Cindy was available right away and super friendly! We are already planning our trip next summer!!

Nice house in a perfect spot

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in this house for a long weekend in July 2015. The house itself was small but perfectly sized for a couple, and the location was perfect, nestled in with other beach bungalows along Mission Beach. The location was ideal for us - it quieted down nicely at night, and we were about 30 seconds from the beach. It was pretty well separated from the more "rowdy" areas of Pacific Beach which we appreciated.

Right across the street was Swell cafe, which was an ideal outdoor spot for morning breakfast and coffee. There is a gated front patio with a table and chairs in front of the house, which was a nice spot to relax and watch people coming and going from the beach.

Lots of shops and bars were easily walkable from the house, and the included garage made parking way less stressful (the area is crowded!). Lyft / Uber is readily available in San Diego for people who don't want to drive, as well. Overall a great spot and we'd stay there again!
