About Frank Fera, Debra Markey

My husband and I both live in beautiful San Diego and know what a wonderful place it is to vacation. Our Mission beach location is a perfect location with so many activities for both the adult and the children. Our place is walking distance to almost all rental, amusement park, shopping and dining. Our units are very cozy and right on the bay side just a few feet from the sand and just a few blocks away from the surf on the Ocean side, making it the best of both worlds. We look forward to having you stay and will do all we can to make your stay enjoyable. Ask about our upstairs 2 bedroom/2 bath unit that sleeps six just $2,200 a week for all the same things mentioned in ad.

Perfect accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of 12 just returned from a week at this home on the bay. Frank was so welcoming and accommodating, and the home was beautifully decorated. The location is perfect... Right on the bay and only one street away from the ocean. A lot of extra amenities were included: boogie boards, shade cover to set up on beach, beach toys, etc. We highly recommend this property!!!

family vacation

  • 4 of 5

I would highly recommend this vacation home. The location was fantastic! The house is very comfortable, very clean and nicely decorated. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you can possibly need, they also have various beach games, beach chairs, life jackets etc. This was our first family vacation with all of the grand kids (6) ages 14 months old to 11 yrs old and 6 adults and we had a blast! The owner, Frank, is very accommodating and friendly. We liked the house so much that we booked in advance for next year, can't wait!

Super great on the Bay!

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this property for anyone wanting to stay on the Bay. We had 5 adults and 5 kids (ages 4 - 13) at this bottom property for a week and it was wonderful. Very clean and nicely decorated (the pictures don't do it justice). We usually stay on the ocean side but decided to try the Bay this year. For those of you with kids I'd say the Bay is an excellent choice ... the water is shallow and you don't have to worry about them getting swept away by a wave! With this property, we could sit on the patio and/or hang out in the house and still easily see and keep an eye on all the kids. I could not get over how close we were to the water --- really beautiful. And the kids had more fun at the Bay than they've ever had at the ocean beach because the water is not scary and there are so many toys they can play with IN the water. And if you want the ocean-side, just a very short walk across the main street. The house is very close to so many types of rentals --- we tried something new almost every day and it was so fun. And close to so many restaurants and juice/coffee shops ---really convenient if you want a change from the kitchen. The owners are very friendly and stopped by to say hello and to stress if we needed anything to just call. We had a couple of questions and they texted back with the answers right away. Another great thing about this property is that is has parking! Any downsides? Not really. I read a previous review from a person disappointed about the coin-operated washer. The positive to this is YOU HAVE A WASHER! And a dryer. The washer is coin-operated at $2 a wash (big washer though and dryer is free) so just know this and come prepared with some quarters - no big deal. I'd sum up our review with a BIG THUMBS UP! We've left our deposit with the owners to get a week next year. Super great place!!!!

Family Beach Vacation = SUCCESS!!!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this property with my husband, 2 kids, and my parents, and had a blast! We already reserved a week next year. The house was very spacious, and would have had room for more. The water is steps off the patio, which was perfect for young children. The location of the property can't be beat. We watched fireworks every night, walked to the ocean a few times, rented paddle boards just a few steps from the house, grilled on the patio, etc. I also loved that the owner was very accessible. He stopped by a few times and made us feel very welcome. I highly recommend!

A Few Things...

  • 3 of 5

Overall this rental is very good. The location can't be beat. You are literally steps away from the water (bay). Also, the walk to the ocean is only about 5 minutes. We brought bicycles with us and were able to ride to the grocery for mid-week supplies. Excellent gyro place just a block away and also a bike/board rental shop. We only rented the bottom unit so I'm unsure what the top one is like. The rooms are very nicely appointed. The beds were comfortable. We had 11 people in our group and there was enough places for sleeping. The dining got a little crowded but worked. The owner was available at any time if there were issues so I WILL say he was very attentive. However there were a few issues that kind of bugged me: The laundry is coin operated. Really?!!! At this price I just don't understand that. We paid a lot of money for this rental and we still had to go get change to do our laundry. The kitchen could use some larger pans for cooking. We had to eat breakfast in shifts because we could only cook a couple of eggs at a time. When we arrived there were dirty dishes in the dishwasher, only a few towels in the bathrooms, hardly any soap and there weren't enough of the correct sized sheets for all of the beds. The owner took care of things by the next day and said "they fired that cleaning crew." That's all good and well but I'm sure this place has been rented for a long time and you'd think the cleaning crew that is used would be well established by now. The bathroom off of the master bedroom could use better fixtures in the shower. Took a long time to get the so-so water pressure to the right temperature. There could be some sort of book with instructions for the house, local places to eat, etc. There was a short list on the wall for when you leave but not much else. Overall, happy with the place, I just think some things could be better and there are tons of rentals all up and down the bayside walk. Also, just a warning. I knew ahead of time the parking would be tight as it is anywhere in this area. We brought a full size truck and the parking for the lower unit is on the side rather than in the carport area. If the rental next door is full (which it was) it is VERY close quarters to move your vehicle. We parked for the week and didn't move the truck. Just FYI...

Owner's Response: Thank you, for your comments and as a courtesy to all our future and returning guest we will do our best to correct the issues you have taken the time to point out. We sincerely appreciate them good and bad. It helps insure that our guest enjoy their time on the beach and not on the phone. The cleaning crews rotate and unfortunately we don't always get the same people, but we are paying more special attention to the areas you pointed out. The few coins we collect from the washer(dryer is free) goes toward replacing things that get accidently broken, like lamps, water toys and things that get packed away by mistake and not taken out of the deposits. Not much we can do about parking, because everyone tries to utilize all the space they can to assist their guest. We're one of the lucky few to have 4-5 parking spaces and true some are tight, unfortunately it is what it is. We have added some larger pans for groups exceeding 10 and as always I am available 24/7 to solve any issues that arise when they arise. We have been doing this for quite awhile as you pointed out and just like any business we do have problems and all of us in this business try our best to correct them to insure that everyone has a great time and in the quickest way we can. Thank you again for taking the time to alert us.
