About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, 5 Maximum Occupancy

This historic home, built in 1933, is still owned by the original family and is one of the most unique properties in Mission Beach. While most of the boardwalk homes have been replaced with condominium buildings, this home stands alone as reminder of what once was - when San Diego and Mission Beach were much smaller and life was less complicated. There are two-bedrooms and one bath and a separate full-ocean-view dining room, as well as a spacious living room and full kitchen. The master bedroom has a queen bed and the second bedroom has two single beds that can be converted into a king. There is also a comfortable air mattress for your use. The door leading outside from the bathroom allows access to outdoor shower with hot water. As you can see by the pictures the large front patio sits right on the famous 3-mile long boardwalk and miles of sandy beach. There is also a very nice, quiet patio in the back yard for a more private setting. And something you won't find anywhere else at the beach, besides having a two-car garage, there is a huge empty lot next to the house for larger vehicles (motor home? ski boat?). And there is plenty of beach gear - beach chairs, umbrella, boogie board. And as you can see, there are no common walls with another property - this is hard to find in Mission Beach and especially on the ocean front. The family is offering this beautiful, well-maintained property for rent to the public on a selective basis, with a maximum occupancy of five people. It is not intended as a wild party house, but rather a quiet, sublime retreat where you can stare directly at the blue Pacific for hours, have your coffee on the front patio before the rest of the beach wakes up, and listen to the sound of the rolling waves at night. Mission Beach offers nightly sunsets, biking, sailing, rollerblading, surfing, boating, a roller coaster and the country's most entertaining people-watching. Book now, for the vacation you deserve.

Would rent again. Our San Diego friends loved it. Ample parking. Best stocked kitchen I’ve ever seen. And the bonus is the deep bathtub

Perfect beach cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This historic beach home has everything you need to enjoy the sites and sounds of the beach. The house is equipped with everything you need and more. It was a complete delight to enjoy dolphin watching from the front porch along with gorgeous sunsets. The cottage is conveniently located to many restaurants and shops. Dave was easily accessible and extremely accommodating. We look forward to returning again.

San Diego beach house

  • 4 of 5

The house was ready, as always. Nice location. The kitchen is small but all else was great. Patio in front and back. Washer/dryer, outdoor shower for rinsing, and garage. I'd do it again. This was my second stay in the house.

Fun beach getaway

This is great property right on the boardwalk and short walking distance to eateries, shops and more. We had a great time. Cozy gas fireplace for cooler evenings, garage and nicely equipped kitchen. We loved it.
