Fantastic location, good property; could use a little attention in the kitchen

  • 4 of 5

This unit is located in the best part of Mission Beach -- steps to the sand in one direction, and steps to Mission Bay in the other. Everything you need is in walking distance: restaurants, bike rental, coffee shops. And the bakery on the first floor is top notch. In addition, the unit includes beach chairs, beach cruisers, boogie boards. The area is touristy and fun, without being completely overrun with day trippers like the areas to the south (nearer the amusement park) and north (nearer Pacific Beach).

The unit is in good shape generally. Beds are fine, linens and towels plentiful, the whole place was clean (except it really smelled of weed when we first arrived -- this is probably going to be typical now that recreational marijuana is legal in CA). My only comment is that it could use a little attention in the kitchen: it's time to refresh the dishes, silverware, pots and pans, glassware. Everything was usable, but sort of worse for the wear.

This is not to say that it's a dealbreaker. I would definitely stay here again.

Steps Away

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at this property. It was conveniently located right next to a bakery so we could grab breakfast each morning and then enjoy a stroll on the beach since it is so close. I was happy the property came with a garage so we didn't have to fight for parking and our RAV 4 was able to fit just fine. I didn't trust my 5 yr. old to stay in the loft bed, since I felt like he could go over the railing while we were asleep, so we had to rearrange our bed usage, but we made it work. We used this place as a home base for our excursions around San Diego and although it was a drive to get to the Safari Park and Lego Land, we thought it was worth it to stay so close to the beach. I would recommend this place to friends and plan to stay here again.

Convenient location, but some things falling apart and a little grimy.

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed the location, the layout of the condo, and after 10:30PM it was usually quiet. However, it needs a good overall scrub. The windows and corners were grimy. The condo also needs some organizing and minor repairs - the blinds are falling apart and screen door on patio kept falling off as well as some of the caulking around the doors. There are random games and books that are fun to have, but need to be gone through and organized - missing pieces and such. I did appreciate the large number of towels available for the bath and beach, but there are no kitchen towels available.

Owner's Response: Hi Shealyn, Thanks for the feedback and bringing these issues to our attention. We have scheduled a deep cleaning with our professional cleaning service that cleans the unit regularly. We are repairing the blinds and will reorganize the book/game section. We have purchased more kitchen towels for the unit. Cheers, Nancy and Team

Great location. Nice condo. Wished I knew the laundry machine was coin operated. We had fuses burn out 2x but it was easy to fix. It did get hot in the condo, even with the small air conditioner, especially when we cooked. Loved the pikes and beach equipment too.

Awesome location.

  • 4 of 5

Our young family of six really enjoyed staying at this Mission Beach property. You cannot beat the location, just steps from the beach in one direction and the bay in the other, with shops and places to get good food and drinks nearby. We loved the large dining room table and the kids got a kick out of sleeping in the loft. As others mentioned, all locks are keypad coded, which was super convenient. We have a large vehicle and it's worth noting that the comments about tight parking quarters are very accurate. It was a very tight squeeze but we made it work.

Owner's Response: We are so happy to hear you all enjoyed your stay! Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Garage space is prime in the area so the majority are smaller in single or double car garages. We have all of the measurements incase you need to know exactly how much space you have available for your car! We are glad you made it work. :) We do hope you think of us the next time you are in San Diego!

Enjoyable stay near the ocean!

  • 3 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay with Nancy's Rentals. They went out of their way to make us comfortable. Condo was nice and roomy and had all that we needed to enjoy our stay. Very close to the ocean and thunderous waves! Enjoyed the bakery downstairs and the Olive Cafe across the street. I did not realize until we arrived that we would park "under" our condo and then have to walk up stairs daily to enter. At 62 years old, that can be a challenge sometimes. Thankfully, I was prepared by exercising prior to our trip. We were disappointed to be asked to clean all our dishes and other cleaning when we paid a fee for cleaning to be done. We've stayed at many rentals and rarely were asked to leave it clean. That's why we paid a cleaning fee. Otherwise, this is a great place to stay!
