About the property

Beach Front -Ground level, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8) A/C - Parking for SUV

PLEASE FEEL FREE TO CONTACT ME WITH ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE ABOUT THE PROPERTY AND AREA. I WILL ALSO PROVIDE THE ADDRESS SO YOU CAN SEE WHAT A GREAT LOCATION IT IS!!

THIS PROPERTY HAS IT ALL!! THE LOCATION IS FABULOUS. IT HAS A/C, GROUND LEVEL WITH GARAGE AND 2 PLACES TO PARK INCLUDING PARKING FOR A LARGE SUV.

Absolutely BEST location on the quieter side of Mission Beach - Sail Bay. Beach and Water Front Ground Level with a 180 degree undisturbed lake-like water view. Very quiet, small building, right on the Sand with Private Beach. Across the street from the Ocean, enjoy this expansive ocean bay for a multitude of water sports including swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding, and sailing. Rentals available at a nearby aquatic center within walking distance.

We are considerate of the neighbors and other guests so do not accommodate large gatherings or parties.

Architecturally expresses Old World Charm. Gorgeous Italian Villa style. Un-crowded area. Very quiet neighborhood. Built in 2007 with upscale features and finishes throughout. This is a ground level property and all one level with private ground level patio. (Each bedroom window and sliding glass door has window coverings even though not shown when photos were taken).

This spacious property has stone floors, granite kitchen counter tops, stainless steel appliances, 4 large flat screen televisions, Wi-Fi, gas fireplace, washer/dryer, private ground level patio with your own barbecue, private garage, PARKING FOR TWO VEHICLES (one in private garage) PLUS ONE MORE DESIGNATED SPACE FOR LARGE SUV. This property also has A/C. Very few properties in Mission Beach have air conditioning. We have beach towels, beach chairs, and a box of sand toys, pack and play, and stool for small children to reach the sink. We are family friendly and have a rinse container and hose at door for easy sand removal.

Daily gym membership available close to property. This is great for those here for a short visit. We also have a community pool in Mission Beach that is open to the public.

Two Mississippi Stern Wheelers with and without entertainment, plow the Bay regularly. The view from their top decks, especially in the evening, with the glistening lights all along the shore, will prove to be unforgettable. The dock is just 1 block away.

By car or bus, you can visit the World Famous San Diego Zoo, the Wild Animal Park (replica of an African Safari), Sea World (5 minutes away), Lego Land, and the San Diego Bay Waterfront. Take a Big Bay Excursion Tour or visit docked, present-day military battleships, even the World War II Aircraft Carrier 'Midway' can be viewed. The 'Star of India', a historic square rigged Sailing Ship is part of a very interesting Maritime Museum, the center of which is the old Ferry Boat 'Berkeley', which commuted for countless years on San Francisco Bay, before replaced by the Bay Bridge. Balboa Park, created in beautiful Baroque Architectural Style, houses a dozen museums and an I-Max Movie Theater. Most attractions are about 15 minutes from Villa Italia.

Mexico, representing a 'different world' just lies 20 miles to the South. It, too, is worth at least a day trip.

Enjoy views from all floor to ceiling windows and doors facing this expansive beach and Sail Bay. You will see sail boats, kayaks, and paddle boarders enjoying this huge ocean bay. It is so wonderful to be right on the beach, water front with spectacular views to enjoy from the time you wake up until you retire at night. Even the night time view is special with lights reflecting on the bay.

The ocean side is about 80 steps from this bay front beach location and offers other water sports including surfing and boogie boarding. Walk, jog or bike for miles on the flat beach or boardwalk on both sides of this narrow peninsula which is truly a recreation paradise.

Villa italia is ground level and all one level...there are no stairs. Enjoy one king in the master suite (with full beach and bay views), one queen bedroom, and two twins. We have two twin sleeper chairs ideal for 2 add'l small children.

The property is spacious with abundant seating in the living room and dining room. It is well cared for, well equipped, and clean.

Enjoy your private patio with table and chairs and BBQ. Patio gate opens onto the sandy beach. This is a private beach area due to the boardwalk curving away from the building in this area opening this wonderful beach just off your patio for your use.

We have beach chairs, beach towels, beach umbrella, and a box of sand toys for your use.

All linens are included and the kitchen is nicely equipped. All you need is your personal belongings and you have a beach home away from home.

Keywords: Spacious condo, feels like a home, new, on quiet beach yet close to everything

We have wifi!

Why Shirley Rast (Shirl) chose Mission Beach

One of the very nicest properties in all of Mission Beach was created here. The front of this Architectural Masterpiece sets right on the beach on Sail Bay. This is ground level and all one level.

Enjoy expansive views of this Pacific Ocean Bay with spectacular panoramic views. Wonderful water and land sports are just outside your door step. This is a beautiful connection to the beach and water. This is a very narrow part of the peninsula so wonderful to be able to walk across the street and visit the Pacific Ocean. It is about a 2 minute walk! Best of both worlds....enjoy the ocean bay and the ocean which are both very close to each other! This property is very nicely furnished, well cared for, well equipped, and very clean. Much attention has been paid to details to make our guests very comfortable.

This property has all the amenities to make this a comfortable beach home away from home. The amenities include a gas BBQ on your private patio, 4 flat screen televisions, Wi-Fi, I-Phone/I-Pod stereo, gas fireplace, garage for one car with an additional spot next to garage that accommodates the largest SUV, full size washer and dryer, a/c, stone floors, granite kitchen counter tops, and built-in stainless steel appliances. All linens included as well as beach toys, a variety of beach chairs, and beach towels.

You step off your private ground level patio onto the sand. The boardwalk curves away from the building, offering you a sandy beach just in front of your private patio. Others enjoying the beach are on the other side of the boardwalk so not near your patio....very unique.

If you need a larger property, please see the 4 bedroom, 3 bath on the entire second level.

It is Villa Italia unit 2 and 3 together.

What makes this house unique

Location, location, location. This is the ultimate beach location in Mission Beach. You have the quietness of the bay side of Mission Beach with the wide expansive huge bay in front of you for all the water sports you can imagine. Then just 80 steps across the street to the west is the Pacific Ocean. This is north Mission Beach - very close to restaurants and shops. But, you will find that you want to stay here because this view is hard to find in any restaurant. The building is quiet as well as the neighborhood. It really is the perfect beach experience!

Pack and play, a/c, parking for a large SUV + one add'l spot in garage for up to a mid size SUV.

Notes:
This is ground level and all one level. You will walk off your patio onto the sandy beach with huge Sail Bay (Pacific Ocean Cove) unfolding in front of you. The miles of boardwalk usually run right in front of the buildings facing the water and beach, however, in this area, your patio extends right on the sand and the boardwalk is away from your patio. It allows for a 'private beach area' in front of this property. Sail Bay is a fabulous water sport arena. Kayak, paddle board, and sail right in front of this property. If you want to experience the ocean side, just walk 50 steps to the west and there you are. This is the quiet side of Mission Beach with very close access to the ocean side. this is truly the best of both worlds.....You are also very close to restaurants and shops....enjoy the miles of flat boardwalk on the bay and ocean side. You can walk, skateboard, roller blade, jog or bike along the beach on both sides of the Mission Beach peninsula....a recreation paradise.

Great location ! Wonderful view ! Walkable restaurants and bars.

  • 3 of 5

I wish I had known,

This is a 3 townhome villa. The owner lives on the 3rd floor.

If you are okay with stairs, the second floor has a lot of space inside and a great view of Mission Bay with an upstairs large outdoor patio.

Otherwise, the 1st floor is for your family. Your patio faces Mission Bay and you can walk right out your gate onto the sand. Each unit has parking, comfortable accommodations, and a very sweet & kind Property Manager to work with.

We enjoyed our time there for a full week and hope to visit again.

Enjoyable Week in Mission Bay

  • 4 of 5

This was our first visit to San Diego. Shirl met us shortly after arrival and gave us the la of the land making sure we were comfortable and did not have any other passing questions. The location made it easy to access all of the activities that we participated in. The property was well laid out and comfortable. The location on the bay was spectacular. We did have a minor issue with cricket noise at the beginning of our stay. Overall I would recommend this property, especially for groups or families.

WONDERFUL HOME / PERFECT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5

Our family has rented many homes in the San Diego area, and this property is, by far, the best home we have rented. The ideal location and beautiful home made for a wonderful family vacation. Having a Bay front property with all the amenities of home completed our perfect home away from home vacation.

We will rent this property again.

On Mission Beach

This property is just across the bay from Sea World. Enjoy the firework display on Saturday night from your patio in the summer. This location is very close to all that San Diego has to offer. The city of San Diego is about 15 minutes from you as well as the airport, Old Town, and the world famous San Diego zoo.

San Diego is a series of beach towns, but very important to stay close to San Diego for convenience to connect to all of these attractions. If you choose something far away such as Carlsbad or Oceanside, you end up being about 30 miles north and much traffic between there and San Diego.....This is a prime spot. Plus this flat peninsula offers such a great recreation area for your vacation!

This is a prime location. You can easily walk to restaurants and shops from the property. You are really in the heart of the 'beach'. People in your family can be at the beach on the bay side while others take a walk or ride a bike and still others may decide to go over the ocean side. It is all within steps. No one feels 'left behind'.
