Our place is stocked with all the beach gear you'll need, like beach chairs, boogie boards, coolers, towels, and even toys for the little ones. The bay is just steps out the doors, which is perfect for watching the SeaWorld fireworks nightly during the summertime. The bay is great for families with small kids or if you just want a little more relaxation. There are grassy parks and playgrounds all in the area too!

There is flat screen TV in the bedroom mounted on the wall for your enjoyment. It will be hard to watch any TV when you're distracted by the ocean and bay views!!!! ahhhhh...sunsets and ocean air....ocean and bay views from both the living room and bedroom!!!

The living room has 2 futons. One can sleep up to two (2) people and there is a smaller one that can sleep an additional person. We have extra linens, pillows and blankets for everyone in the linen closet in the hallway. We have another flat screen TV and DVD player in the living room. Plus, wireless Internet available. We have a washer and dryer on site (and its free). Our home has 1 assigned parking space plus plenty of additional parking right on San Fernando Pl.

Why Erin chose San Diego County

I have been in this area for 33 years. I retired from the San Diego City Fire Department after 27 years of service. I worked as a firefighter as well as in the in the position of a Deputy Fire Marshal. My son is married and I have two beautiful grand children 8 months and 4 years I've lived on many Courts in Mission Beach and love this address the best. That's why I bought it!!! I am so close to everything. It's fun here for my two grandchildren also. Sand, water and playgrounds.

What makes this condo unique

South Mission Beach is family oriented for ALL ages. You feel like you're at home here! My boyfriend and and I love that we are walking distance to just about everything. The Pennant is a small town local bar a couple blocks away and is world famous! Next door to it is the Beach Comber and they have dancing. We have a bike and kayak rentals close to the condo. With these local business's so close to dwellings South Mission still holds that quaint neighborhood feeling.... Please come and enjoy!!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Just wanted to say thank you for a great vacation rental - we had an awesome time! The location was perfect, the size of the unit was exactly what we needed and it was so convenient to have the beach chairs and sand toys for the kids.



Thanks again - we hope to be back in the near future!

Great Location - Furniture Improvements Needed!

  • 3 of 5

This apartment is located right between Mission Bay & Mission Beach - so great location! Really just a few steps from both. The futon couch & chair were so uncomfortable (to sit on) and the floors weren't very clean. Please get new furniture! The dishwasher is not attached to the counter and is a hazard. The stove and burners are not level. Loved the beach amenities (beach chairs, boogie boards, beach towels, etc.) I would stay here again only if you got a new couch. The bed was too tall for me.

Overall okay but some drawbacks

  • 3 of 5

Erin is very nice. We appreciated the convenience/beach items. The unit did seem clean but found items from previous guests that the housekeepers missed. Beds were comfortable. Clothes washer/dryer great to have. We really appreciate that we were able to rent the unit for less than the 7-night minimum that so many other properties have, and the reasonable cleaning fee.

The unit needs some maintenance such as painting and carpet cleaning, issues which did not really bother us, but having a large panel of the front door missing and covered with some sort of cardboard and tape did bother us- someone could easily push through it and crawl through or reach up and unlock the door. Now when reading past reviews it appears that the door has been this way for years. There was no secondary security for the door (ie chain).

The location is great for the beach/bay & not so great for traffic/noise. Belmont Park is close but with that brings all of the noise of the folks having fun on the rides, which goes well into the night. There is public parking in front of unit that has traffic all the time, with people coming and going at all hours. One day at 3:30 am there was a large group of people (drunk?) doing some sort of cheer/chant in the street. Obviously this is out of the owner's control, but it is something to be aware of especially if you're light sleepers.

The apartment gets so hot even with all windows open and fans going constantly. The portable cooling unit did nothing to help. We thought we'd be okay with not having a/c but we were pretty miserable.

The unit does have its' own parking space in the back of the building, but it is so tight, we had to unload the car (Honda Accord) and fold in the mirrors and then spot the driver in order to park. We would then put a pillow between our car door and the next car so the driver could squeeze out of our car. Thankfully the other renters were considerate and did not ding our doors either. The public parking in front of the unit and public parking lot across the road were almost always full.

All in all we adapted and made the most of our time here but would look for another property if we returned to the area.

Perfect for our family of 5

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for our family. The beach and bay are right out the door. Just down the street is Belmont Park. We also went to SeaWorld which was maybe a 5 minute drive. It was comfortable and clean. It was perfect for the price. It does not have central air so the fans were a must! The parking spot fit our minivan and restaurants were within walking distance. We also used the free washer and dryer which was so helpful and right on site. We loved our stay and will stay again in the future.

Convenient, decent place

  • 3 of 5

This apartment was conveniently located and was a decent place to stay. It was lacking on a few amenities that would have made it nicer. There was no air conditioning, so the windows remained opened with several fans going throughout the day and evening. The bed in the main bedroom was not very comfortable, but with the futon and additional child's bed in the room we were able to sleep 5 people okay.

Parking was not too much of a problem, but could get crazy during a busier time. There is a dedicated parking spot in the rear of the building, but if other tennants are using the adjoining spots then it is nearly impossible to park unless you are in a sub-compact vehicle.

There is a public lot right next to the condo that usually had spots available if you wanted a more convenient spot.

It was fairly loud around the area, especially with having to keep the windows open during the evenings. You could hear people screaming on the roller coaster at Belmont Park until it closed, and the public lot usually had some overnighters.

It was right next to a little inlet and nice beach. There were several paddle boards available in the apartment to use and provided easy access to some running/biking paths. You're right across the street from a nice park, Mission beach, and Belmont Park. Just down the road over several miles are a variety of really good restaurants and amenities.

The apartment had a fridge, microwave, and stove, which made it very nice if you are coming with a family and don't want to spend all of your money eating out every meal.

The place was decent overall, but could use some basic maintenance (i.e. hole in the door from an old dog door covered with vinyl and taped over, older carpet and flooring, etc...). Worth what was paid and an overall fair deal.
