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'. My wife and I lived in the house for many years and we will always keep it as it is instead of building condos on the property. We will return to the house at some point, but for now we enjoy having others enjoy the beach life.
David Simmonds purchased this House in 1990
Why David Simmonds chose Mission Beach
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.

Thanks for the stay!
The location of the property is everything. Plenty of amenities such as blankets, pillows, and kitchenware. Very relaxing and private atmosphere.
Always a pleasure!!
Another great stay in our special cottage. We enjoyed a great week!
We had a great time! Best location for a family looking to spend time on the beach. I have a Dodge Ram 1500 and was worried I wouldn’t be able to park, but it worked out perfectly next to the garage. Thanks for sharing your home with us! We’ll be back.
Thanks, Dallas! I'm glad you guys had a good time and like the house
Stay at Mission Beach
Location, communication with owner, and hot water was excellent. He changed our dates and time of entry without any problem. However, the property needs a really deep cleaning. There was dust on the horizontal surfaces and books. Let’s of scratches on the painted surfaces. We were glad there was only two of us. But we had a good time there.
We always do a deep-cleaning just before the summer season, coming up in a a week, and in December. I'm sorry there was some dust on some of the books (there are over 200 in the house). The house is professionally cleaned for each guest reservation. Thanks for coming.
Comfortable place close to the beach
Everything was clean and organized, and the location was very convenient. The place shows its age a bit, but that makes it quite charming. Overall a great stay!
This was a great place to be. The bungalow is very cute and comfortable and the location is perfect. Just one house to the beach and walking strand with some shopping, great restaurants and lots of people watching. The front patio was my favorite place to be when not out enjoying the views. It is clean and has everything you need. I loved it and will definitely go again. The owner is very easy to deal with fast responses.
