1 full bath and a 3/4 bath in one of the bedrooms. All bedding, linens, and furniture are new for summer rentals. It is clean and decorated nicely with very comfortable beds and furniture, you will not be disappointed. Check out our other rental at VRBO #287643.

The coin-operated laundry facilities are shared in the garage with an upstairs separate 1 bedroom unit. They do not have parking in the garage but have access to the washer/dryer.

This location is so ideal and so close to the ocean and bay. You can walk to the ocean literally in 30 seconds and the bay is only a two minute walk. There is a local store a few blocks away for any stock items you may need like, milk, bread, or butter, etc.

About Dave and Susan Gehrke

Dave and I are locals here in San Diego. We live about 25 minutes north in Carmel Valley which is right next to Del Mar. We own a Window and Door dealership called Builders Window Supply. This beach house is a fun hobby/investment for us and it has proven to be very rewarding. It brings us down to South Mission Beach a lot in the summer and we stay and play volleyball or bike or kayak. We have two grown kids on their own. I grew up in San Diego and my husband moved here during college after he met me at his cousins house in South Mission Beach. Here we are 30+ years later.

Dave and Susan Gehrke purchased this house in 2009

Why Dave and Susan Gehrke chose San Diego County

We bought a house in this location because it is one of our favorite places to be. The beach is wide with bright sand and wonderful sunsets. Our Uncle started his own vacation rental business here years ago and we are following his lead. We are San Diegan's and have had one of the best vacations ever a few years ago with the whole extended family. We all stayed in our Uncles vacation rentals due to a lot of us being evacuated with the terrible fires in the fall of 2007. The beach was the only safe place to be and unexpectedly we had one of the best reunions ever. No one could work or go anywhere. We barbequed and played volleyball all day. We love it here. The beach has such a carefree spirit which takes you away from the daily duties of work, chores, and paperwork, not to mention the heat for all the hot weather folks escaping the 100 degree weather.

What makes this house unique

We live on one of the few streets that has parking in front of the unit. Most of the courts in South Mission are divided from their neighbors by a skinny sidewalk and there is a lot of closeness. We have less of a noise concern because of the distance from our opposite neighbor. We looked for a house on the street rather than a court. We are so happy we did. The deck out front is the favorite place for all our tenants as well as for us. We are just off the boardwalk so not a lot of looky-loo's checking us out but enough people watching when people ride bikes or walk by.

Great location cute beach cottage feel

  • 4 of 5

The property it self was great! But there was construction goin on right in front of the house tearing up the asphalt with jack hammers the entire time early in the am and the next door neighbor was ripping off the roof the first day. So wasn't able to hang at the house or on the porch due to noise and construction. But Susan was very nice and other than those things which wernt really under their control the place was very comfortable and cute. Either way we made the best of it. Mahalo Mira and Keone

San Diego dream home

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just left this home after spending 2 amazing weeks here. We LOVED the home! It is cozy and in a great location. Only steps away from the beach! We wish it was our personal home!! It's perfect for a small family or couples and even though it's a cozy space you can still probably manage up to 6 adults and/or a couple kids comfortably. It's nice being a little farther from the busy Balmont Park area since you have better choices of space on the beach. The Bay Side is also close so you get best of both worlds. We road our bikes everywhere including SeaWorld which was a lot of fun and saved on parking. The owner is very easy to work with and easy to get a hold of which is comforting when staying in "our" home away from home 😀 Overall it's Great! We hope to visit as often as possible!!

Owner's Response: Wow, thank you for that amazing review. You were just as easy to work with and get 5 stars as a tenant! Thank you so much for all your help while you were there. It's always great to have someone who has been in construction and is capable of many maintenance issues! Even the neighbors benefitted from you. Not that anything big came up but the couple little things that did you took care of them. Thank you!

Amazing trip, amazing house, amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

A few of my girlfriends and I rented this little beach house for a week. What a great find!! This house and its location made the trip unforgettable. The house had everything we needed and more. It felt like home from the minute we walked in with the cozy wood stove and nice decor. In the morning we would wake up and enjoy our coffee on the nice deck with an amazing view of the beach. Then we would take the bikes out for a ride on the boardwalk. Susan is the best. She's on call whenever you need her! This was my first time renting a house from this site and it was overall the best experience thanks to Susan and her lovely beach house. 10/10
