Great Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week here for a family vacation with a 5 and 2 year old. Condo has everything needed for a relaxing stay. Very clean and well kept. Building and area is very quiet. What a great location. Everything is so close like the bay, the ocean, the amusement park, restaurants and groceries. All an easy walk with our children. The bay side beach was perfect as we had it to ourselves everyday we went, very quiet. Easy drive to Sea world, the zoo and lots of other attractions. Peter was very good to deal with, answering any questions within an hour. Definitely recommend and would not hesitate to stay here again.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We just spent our summer vacation here and what a great place, one week is not enough. The location is excellent, close enough to the major attractions in Mission Beach, yet far enough to stay clear of the weekend beach goers. Highlights of the week include seeing the nightly fireworks show at Sea World from the balcony, enjoying both the bay and the ocean beaches, both very short walks from the condo. Bike rides along the coast, paddle boarding on the bay, boogie boards (there were 6 included with the unit) on the ocean. We also enjoyed Sea World, star gazing at Balboa Park with the Astrological Society, farmers market in Pacific Beach, tide pools in La Jolla, and several restaraunts, all very quick drives from Mission Beach.

The unit was clean with all needed amenities. The bunk bed in the 2nd bedroom is a great idea, helped us fit the kids comfortably. Having two full baths was also nice.

Peter was responsive and helped make the transaction very easy. Frank the building manager was also a very nice guy, providing several insights to the area and giving us coupons for a cheaper bike rental.

All in all, a great vacation and we hope to stay again and highly recommend this unit.

This is our second stay in this great South Mission Beach Condo. The view of the bay is calming especially at night when boats are lit up. The condo is spaciaous and very clean. The owners are very nice and quick to help out if needed. You are just steps from the bay and steps from the beach. We love the bayside in the morning with coffee and watching the sunset on the beach at night. Love this place so much we want to stay for 2 weeks next year.

Pure Bliss

  • 5 of 5

We rented this unit for 5 weeks - it is total turn key - including high end linens, towels, bedding - even toilet paper - we needed to only shop for our own groceries - basic kitchen staples are available for guest use - it is truly a bring your own tooth brush and you will do well -

The unit has easy access to both the ocean and bay - one can walk for miles without crossing a major street - one can recline in a massage chair in the master bedroom and watch the palm trees sway and the boats go in and out of the channel - without leaving the unit - the view from the balcony is the same - bay, boats and even an ocean view with peak white water view

This is a place we would rent again - it is cleaner than some 5 star hotels - and a perfect retreat - it is so perfect that you can park your car upon arrival and not have to leave for the length of your stay - there is substantial public parking for visiting guests -

Peter is on top of any issue that came up during our stay -the building manager is very helpful - and the neighbors are quite nice - it is a very comfortable and pleasant place to renew one's spirit - Thank you for maintaining such a high standard of rental property

Great location, would love to return

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed for a week and loved it. Exactly like a home away from home, everything you'd ever need was right there! Very clean with excellent quality linens and towels , fun decor, and plenty of helpful information for first-time S.D. visitors like us. The building manager and neighbors were friendly and helpful, also. The location was excellent, minutes away from S.D. attractions, and steps away from the beach! Peter, the owner, was friendly and made the entire rental process quick and painless. My family recommends this rental in every way!

This was our second stay at the condo. You couldn't pick a better location. It's centrally located and close to the beach and fishing. The owners are very accomodating. Our family has been very happy with both stays at the condo!!!
