About Whitney Porter, Manager

I love everything about San Diego. I grew up in a small town in Northern California, after moving down to San Diego for College I couldn't leave. This city has everything imaginable for every age and I am so excited to share it with all visitors. I hope you enjoy our home and beautiful San Diego!

Whitney Porter, Manager purchased this house in 2008

Why Whitney Porter, Manager chose Bay View Villas

Mission Beach offers travelers and residents the best of San Diego - ocean waves, boating on the bay, strolling, skating or riding along the boardwalks, excellent restaurants, shops and nightlife - all without getting in your car!! 10 minute drive to Sea World and 15 minute drive to the San Diego Zoo, Downtown and Balboa Park. I love the privacy that a single-family detached home has to offer, complete with balconies, a large secluded patio and an outdoor shower to rinse off the beach sand.

What makes this house unique

House is 50 feet away from the calm bay beach with lawn and boardwalk, 1.5 blocks away from the ocean beach with great waves for boogie boarding and surfing, plus another boardwalk, within a block of restaurants, coffee shops, and convenience/liquor stores. The bay side is quieter than the ocean side of the strip, and is perfect for families. We are also right around the corner from Santa Clara Point, which has extra parking, all types of boat and board rentals, summer camps, ball fields and a playground. Our house was designed to maximize privacy and make the most of its great location!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for providing all of the beach "accessories". Our kids enjoyed building sandcastles - something we don't do enough of at home.

The best moments on our trip were the unplanned ones. We didn't have to over-schedule ourselves. This house made it possible to sit, relax and see what happens.

What a fantastic place you have! You are lucky to have it. We are lucky that you shared it!

Mission Beach house, San Diego CA

VRBO Bear stayed here

Aug 24, 2011

I really enjoyed my stay in this fantastic beach house. With a tandem kayak, several bikes, beach toys and chairs, coolers, beach towels and more, the owners have supplied almost everything for an enjoyable beach vacation for any age. Pack light if you are staying here! Here are the other reasons why I loved this vacation home: Lots of books and games for family “good ole’ time fun. No toys necessary! With 2 patios and the kitchen table, my group loved the variety of eating locations. Just 1 block from the bay and 2 blocks from the ocean, we could easily carry beach toys, snacks and chairs to the beach. It’s also an easy drive downtown. And just 1 block from the main drag, you can grab a quick bite for any meal, morning coffee, late night drink or just run to the corner store for a last minute item. Just 5 minutes from Sea World and 15 minutes from the San Diego Zoo means no hassle and even bringing a small child back for a nap. For a memorable, fun family vacation or just an adult getaway, you’ll find it all here in this beach house on Mission Bay. The VRBO Bear

Love Love LOVED It.

The house is located to both the beach and the bay, which gave us the opportunity to choose between a more relaxed, family setting or a more upbeat public setting at the ocean. The house was beautiful and accommodating, and we all felt very at home the entire trip. One huge surprise was the bicycles that were in garage for us to use, which made for beautiful rides along the beach and quick transportation to food places we didn't feel like walking or driving to! I would recommend this place to a friend 10/10, I will never forget the memories made in this home!

We had lots of fun. My whole family was together. Some family members had never seen the ocean. Wedding was beautiful. Enjoyed all the room for family. Patio was wonderful . Used the bbq. We enjoyed ourselves despite things that were in need of repair.

The property was perfect, great location for a great price.

My group and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Mission Beach. It was a perfect location right along the bay with just a short 2 minute walk to the beach. Amazing food options and great night life close by. The only thing was it was a little tight for 10 people but it still worked for our group perfectly. We had a group of 10 girls for a little reunion trip and had a wonderful time. I would recommend this place for families and groups of friends alike.

Amazing location and home!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home is located one block from the bay of San Diego and one block from Mission beach! It's directly in the middle of everything! We were able to take a stroll on the bay while we walked to the grocery store. The beds were extremely comfortable and there was lots of extra bedding available. We took advantage of the beach bikes that are provided. We were extremely happy with this home and our overall stay!
