WINTER SPECIAL! NOV 27 - DEC 24 AND JANUARY 17 - FEBRUARY 28, JUST $110/NIGHT! THE BEST DEAL IN MISSION BEACH FOR THIS STAND ALONE COTTAGE 100 FEET FROM SAND. BOOK NOW FOR SPECIAL WINTER RATES!

The former home of a writer and educator, this 1920's bungalow has been completely restored to provide a very comfortable stay at America's finest beach. Just steps from the boardwalk and beach (three houses from the boardwalk) and near Belmont Park and the Roller Coaster, the house comes equipped with all you will need for the perfect vacation. Boogie board,kayak, beach chairs, sand toys, garage parking and an extra outdoor shower.

The master bedroom has a queen bed and flat screen TV. The second bedroom has bunk beds with a single and double. The comfortable futon in the living room makes into a double, where there is another flat screen TV and IPod/CD music player. We also have a Pack N Play for your toddler.

The shelves are lined with over 300 quality books of all varieties. I keep the prices very affordable compared to any other stand alone house in Mission Beach, so it books out very well. Many people really like this historic-style cottage feel rather than 'all-the-same' condos that line much of the beach, and for good reason. The hard-wood floors and Dutch-door in the front provide a nostalgic step back in time, while enjoying the upgrades to the cottage over the years.

When our kids are grown we're moving back in!! So come enjoy the Mission Beach Cottage while you can. :)

World famous Sea World is five minutes away and the San Diego Zoo is ten minutes. World class dining can be enjoyed in downtown's Gaslamp Quarter, a ten minute drive. 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.

About David Simmonds

I first moved to San Diego to go to San Diego State University and landed in Mission Beach, thinking 'why would I ever want to leave here'. Eventually, I was able to buy this house where my wife and I lived for ten years before starting a family. Now we have been vacation renting it for 14 years with plans to move back in when the kids are off to college.

David Simmonds purchased this house in 1990

Why David Simmonds chose San Diego County

One thing that attracted me to buy this house is its location so close to the beach and boardwalk. And it is a single family home with no attached homes, on its own lot. We also loved the historic value in an era when so many others are building new condos.

What makes this house unique

Having a single-family house on its own lot is a huge benefit. There are no common walls and you aren't sharing the yard with anyone. The proximity to the boardwalk and sand is a big plus, too, for a fraction of the price of the oceanfront properties which have very little privacy.

  • 5 of 5

We were at Mission Beach for a family Christmas & this was all we hoped for...especially the opportunity to escape a MN winter. Nice proximity to stores & restaurants. We sppreciated the historic charm of the cottage...it's not new, but was exactly what we wanted.

Perfect beach bungalow!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 stayed at Jersey Ct for 5 days, and we absolutely fell in love with it! Well maintained (even though the home is older) and accommodating. We were able to just stock up on groceries and live like it was our own home. There is ample space for sleepers (nooks, futon, bunks, and the pack and play for the baby), as well as outdoor dining on the patio and room for everyone around the dining table. The owner was very receptive to questions and replied quickly. You can tell he takes pride in his home and in sharing it with his guests. The home is a stone's throw from the beach, and was perfect for our little guys to just walk down to every day. If we are able to return to San Diego for another family trip, we would love to stay here again! Thanks for everything!

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

We traveled from the East Coast and therefore, the beach cottage with the supplied towels and sheets, etc. was a real plus. It was in an excellent location and very clean. I especially loved the old style of the cottage!!

Sweet locations

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was an amazing location right off Mission Beach and near SeaWorld. It's literally 10-15min. from all the sights.

Personal suggestion would be to hit up Vons grocery and stock up the fridge, so that you can spend more time on the beach and maybe picnic it a bit.

A great place for our beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is located in an awesome location, just steps from the ocean, a short walk to Belmont park and its shops/restaurants and less than a mile to the grocery store. House was furnished with everything we needed and was overflowing with books to read!! Our family had a great vacation and would love to return to this property. Thanks for the memories!!
