Why Roger Engle chose Mission Beach

Property has been in our family since the 1950's but weekly summer rental is new for us. We used to go to the beach as kids when our parents worked on the property. Mission Beach is really a nice beach for families.

Second time

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this condo last year and loved it so much stayed again! Our children are teen +, so basically five adults and we had plenty of space. The rental is very clean and has everything needed for your stay. The location is PERFECT - steps from the beach, and close walk to Belmont Park. The owner is very responsive. Nothing bad to say at all.

Great location! Great value!

  • 5 of 5

This cute little house is steps from the beach. It was great to take our morning coffee and provided beach chairs to the shore and watch the waves every morning. Props to whoever cleans between guests. When we arrived the place was spotless! Quite a feat when by the end of our first day we couldn't help but have sand everywhere. The house was perfect for our family of 4. One grown kid got the bedroom, one got the couch which was very comfortable. The house came with everything we needed. The beach chairs, umbrella and boogie boards got a lot of use. Parking is tight, we have a VW Passat and had to squeeze it in, but it was great just to have parking, which appears to be at a premium so close to the beach. Especially nice was the close proximity to very good food vendors. After long days on the beach or sightseeing it was convenient to be able to just wander over to the main drag and have a great selection of food. We ate at Marcy's Mexican several times, also Luigi's Pizza where a single slice is enough to feed at least 2 people. There are 2 small markets nearby for necessities, and larger grocery stores in easy driving distance. Roger was great at communication and available for any questions we may have had. I should mention Mission Beach is a great area for families. No loud partiers. We would definitely stay here again!

High quality for a great price!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in various condos/houses on Mission beach for many years. This was our first year staying at this location and to say we were impressed in understatement. We were greeted by a hand written note from the owners, which was a first for us! The house is bright, clean and welcoming. From the dishes to the boogie boards, everything in the house was high quality. The patio is perfect for little kids as well as older children. The location is amazing but just far enough away from the touristy areas to be able to relax. We have already booked our stay at this house for next year. Try it out, you won't be disappointed!

We stayed in this rental last summer and as I was looking to book for this year I realized I never gave a review. The owner Roger was very helpful and worked with me to pay via PayPal. He was always available with any questions during our stay. The place itself was very clean and had everything needed to make our stay comfortable. The best, best, BEST part of this rental is the LOCATION. It is just steps fromt the boardwalk, beach and Belmont Park. Would recommend staying here to anyone.

Great Little Beach Bungalow

  • 5 of 5

This little bungalow is perfect for a couple or small family. It's got all the basics you'll need for a great beach getaway - two bedrooms, well-equipped kitchen, washer/dryer, and front patio. Beach chairs, towels, umbrella, boogie boards and kiddie toys are all provided too. You also get a garage parking spot, which is not very common so close to the beach. It's not high luxury, but it's clean and comfortable and only steps from the beach. The owners, Roger and Susan, were excellent hosts - always available but never intrusive.

Great week

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at the property. The owners were great about communication and having everything in order before we arrived. We received detailed arrival instructions including directions about a week before we arrived. The house was very clean when we arrived and everything except perishables was waiting for us. The walk to either the ocean, Belmont or the bay was a breeze. Drives to Sea World, the zoo, downtown, Sea Port Village or tide pools were easy. Other vacationers on the court and passerby's were friendly. We have no qualms about recommending this property to others. Parking is a little tight but that is the area, the garage fit my 2014 Fusion easily. It was definitely nice having a garage to park in. Deposit check got back to us less than week after we checked out.
