Nice place that needs some TLC.

  • 3 of 5

First the Pros:

1. It's a cute and charming little place. My wife thinks it looks like a Hollister store.

2. Great location in terms of both the beach and bay - both are walking distance, even with beach gear and SUP in tow. Also a liquor/semi-convenience store across the street.

3. Parking! There are 3 dedicated spaces in the alley, making it great for our 2 vehicles which included my full size pickup. MB is a crowded scene, and I watched other families struggling with double parking while loading/unloading, etc.

4. Washer & Dryer on site - truly a must have for an extended stay.

Now the Cons:

1. Noise - it's right on Mission Bay Drive, as well as at the bus stop. Traffic noise is terrible, as well as all the hooting and hollering from the nearby partiers.

2. Seating? 2 seats at the kitchen counter with stools that are the wrong height, and a tiny kitchen table that seats 3 but only has room for 2. Our family of 4 could not sit at the same table for any meal. Unfortunately, the place is small enough that there really is not a place to add a decent table. There are 2 small metal patio tables/chairs that will seat 2, but are not together and fairly rusted.

3. Kitchen supplies seriously lacking. There is a hodgepodge of mismatched silverware, but only enough to get you through 1 meal before hand-washing your dishes (no dishwasher) for the next one. 1 broken spatula. 1 old, crusted frying pan (now there is a nice non-stick one because I bought a new one and left it!).

4. Gas grill - it is shabby and rusted and only 1 burner lights. Not enough heat or grilling space on one burner to do much. Thank goodness for the old charcoal grill that I used instead.

5. AC filter not changed in years. We didn't need AC, thank goodness, but that is seriously the filthiest AC filter I have ever seen. Not just caked with dark brown filth, but an old, bloody band-aid stuck on it as well (bad enough for me to photograph)!

6. No dressers - it's small, so be prepared to live out of your suitcase for the duration. Closets are mostly full already with boxes and linens.

7. Not a big deal, but a persistent problem with tiny ants in the kitchen. We learned on the first night to keep EVERYTHING in Ziplocs.

Overall, this place has great potential. With some updates and TLC, it could really be a charmer. Despite the many cons, I would consider it again because the of the Pros, and because, hey, it's the beach. Who cares when you're at the beach?! We had a wonderful 2 weeks.

Quaint little beach house

  • 5 of 5

There is just something about a beach house with wood floors that ties it all together! We found everything we needed in the house for a very comfortable stay. The location is perfect and although right in the middle of Mission Beach you are isolated from the hustle which makes for a very relaxing stay. We will definitely be booking this VRBO again!

Super cute house, good location.

  • 5 of 5

Great little house, and wonderful little patio and porch. Could use a little bit of an update on kitchen tools and utensils but zero complaints from me.

Just as described

  • 5 of 5

The house itself needed some updating but not enough to call it a downfall. The location was great, everything was clean and it had its own parking. Couldn't have asked for a better weekend with the family!

Somewhat dated but charming

  • 3 of 5

It is a somewhat charming beach house, it is as close to the beach as stated. However, it is the house on the corner of a very busy street. Also, the city bus stop drops and picks up on the sidewalk that sides the house. The first day we were there, we had left to buy groceries and a stranger left their backpack and things on the table near the back gate. Creepy! We locked the gate for the rest of the trip. That did makes us feel uneasy with our children. Fine house for singles but I didn't find it worry free with the kiddos. Thank you
