About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 7)

Enjoy the nostalgia of this vintage bayfront beach house built in the 1920's. This quaint cottage has one of the largest lots on the bay.

Linger through breakfast while soaking up the morning sun on the enormous patio. You won't want to leave.

This long-time family home is the perfect place to experience So Cal beach life. Watch the sailboats on the bay right from the living room and expansive patio. Beautiful bay views from the kitchen, dining area, master bedroom, and breakfast nook as well! Finishing touches have just been put on the bathroom remodel as well as a few other areas of this home.

Watch the Sea World fireworks show right from the patio. You and the kids will love the bayside beach, boardwalk, sand and water right outside your front gate. The ocean is a quick two-minute walk away. You will fall in love with this historic cottage. And the price can't be beat for anything comparable in Mission Beach.

Mission Beach offers gorgeous nightly sunsets, biking, sailing, rollerblading, surfing, boating, and the country's most entertaining people-watching. Walk to Belmont Amusement Park to ride the historic Giant Dipper Roller Coaster which is one of two original oceanfront roller coasters still operating on the west coast.

World famous Sea World is five minutes away and the San Diego Zoo is only ten minutes, located in historic Balboa Park, the nation's largest urban cultural park -- home to 15 major museums, renowned performing arts venues and beautiful gardens. World class dining can be enjoyed in downtown's Gaslamp Quarter, a ten-minute drive.

Great location, very family friendly

  • 5 of 5

The location is exactly as advertised, right on Mission Bay. Walking distance to coffee shops, restaurants, the Ocean, bike rentals, etc.

We were there in April and the place was great. I'm not sure how it would be in the winter, as it definitely feels like a beach bungalow - i.e., we didn't see any insulation. It has a bit of a funky layout, but it works. The patio is fantastic - we could sit on the patio and watch the kids playing in the sand on the bay. There were some poor reviews about the bathroom - the toilet is in a separate room, and the sink vanity is small (there is not room to sit any toiletries on it). The tub is an old claw foot tub; if you have kids, it means it is tricky for baths. Sand toys were in the garage, as well as fully functioning washer/dryer. Fully functioning and stocked kitchen. Very comfortable living room and dining area.

I would strongly recommend this home to a family, or two couples.

Location is really all this place has going for it.

  • 2 of 5

The location is amazing. But the place is about to fall apart. Cleaning fee is just to make extra cash, as cabinets are sticky and thing are not that clean. Also whoever is in charge of managing the rental is pretty terrible. I had to really pester them to return one of my wife's items she accidently left behind. Also I still haven't received my deposit back yet. Just be weary, its looks like a good deal for a reason. There are plenty of other rental that would be better.

Our family of five loved our stay at this charming old cottage.

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is the perfect location to enjoy both mission bay and mission beach. Our daughters enjoyed digging for shells each morning and my husband and I enjoyed watching them from the patio with our coffees. This cottage is vintage and has a lot of character. We appreciate the clean property and the generous lot size and plan to stay again!

Perfect place for a young family!

  • 5 of 5

We liked the look of this place from the moment we saw it on VRBO. A true beach cottage in an excellent location. The booking process was smooth and we had all the information we needed to find and access the property. We found it to be clean and well equipped with everything from kitchen supplies to towels to beach toys and gear. Our kids loved the bunkbeds and the master room bed was very comfortable. We felt very much at home at this property. The laundry is conveniently located in the garage, where we also found beach chairs and ample space to park our rented bikes and bike trailer. The best part about this property is certainly the location and view. We loved opening the shades each morning and greeting the sunrise and fresh ocean air. The kids spent a lot of time playing in the spacious, fenced front yard and it is just a quick hop (remember to look both ways!) across the bayside walk to a grassy space and sandy beach. Paddle boarding and other boat rentals are just across the way on Santa Clara Point. Many playgrounds are a comfortable biking distance away and there is just so much to see and do in the area. Amazing coffee and people at Swell Cafe. They knew us and our order and were so friendly every morning. We biked up to La Jolla using the Oceanfront path and roads with designated bike routes. We did have a rental car and found it useful for sightseeing (Point Loma - very cool tide pools and amazing views, Little Italy for the market on Saturday etc.) but you could get by very easily just using bikes. All in all, we wish we could have stayed longer at this amazing beach cottage and we hope to return soon! So nice to stay somewhere clean and comfortable, that also has charm and character. Great spot for a family vacation!
