Sunrise to sunset, with a full day of sunshine -- the first reason why you'll love this house! It's in a quiet location on the hard to find sunset side of the water (facing west) of beautiful Sail Bay.
This house is stocked with all the amenities to make that wish come true. We have beach cruiser bikes in the garage for a leisurely ride and the choice of 16 miles of bike paths. If you feel like relaxing on the beach and working on your suntan, we have beach towels and sand toys to keep the kids busy so take advantage of miles of sandy beaches. After a long day of beach fun, come home and have a drink in one of our margarita glasses and hang out by the fire pit in the backyard to watch the sunset!
In the morning, enjoy your coffee or tea with a pelican or kayaker as the sun gently rises on this blissfully quiet beach. But be forewarned -- time spent in front of the panoramic windows to the bay and the ocean turn into hours as the catamarans, sailboats and windsurfers fascinate you!
With more than 2400 sq. ft. that includes four bedrooms and three full baths, there's plenty of room for everyone, with extra sleeping accommodations on the veranda with a wall of windows to the bay. The fourth bedroom is a private downstairs suite with a queen bed and private bathroom on the patio level.
The great room boasts more than windows and views -- there's a large flat panel HDTV with all the channels you won't have time to watch, a DVD player and enough videos and board games to keep everyone busy after the sun goes down. (TV also in the master bedroom.) There's seating for eight at the dining room table, plus the family-sized kitchen has another dining nook surrounded by windows to the bay and a table for four. A two-car garage keeps your cars off the street and includes a full-size washer and dryer for your use.
Inside the private fenced yard is an outdoor shower, patio with grill, and oversized sandbox to keep the kids safe and happy all the time. Everything from the beach towels to body wash is provided for your convenience.
With all these amazing amenities, you might be tempted to hang out at home all day-- but don't forget you're in the middle of one of the most exciting beach towns in San Diego! Covering more than 4,000 acres, Mission Bay is the largest man-made aquatic park in the country. You can walk from the backyard out your private gate and directly access the boardwalk and the bay.
SeaWorld, Belmont Park's historic Rollercoaster, Crystal Pier, cafes, bistros and the shops, restaurants and nightlife of Pacific Beach and Mission Beach are all within easy reach.
Rent a motorboat, kayak or sailboat. Pedal to Mariner's Point, Perez Cove, Stoney Point, Government Island or Fiesta Island to witness endangered birds like the California least tern and Belding's savannah sparrow plus your local great blue heron, osprey, mallards, avocets and black-necked stilts. Enjoy a picnic in your own backyard or walk to Crown Point for shooting hoops and playground swings.
Easy access to Highways 5 and 8 make it a breeze to get anywhere and everywhere else you'd like to go. The famous San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park, Old Town, Gaslamp and Little Italy, Petco Park, Birch Aquarium, Legoland and the Wild Animal Park are barely 10 to 30-minute drives away.
Please note that this is NOT a 'party house.' Although directly on the bay, we ask that you respect the privacy of the neighborhood by refraining from unusually loud noise or behavior at all times. No smoking inside. No pets. We do our best to keep the online calendar and listing updated -- please call or email if you have any questions.
