Guestbook comments from the manager

We just returned from staying at this quaint condo just steps from the beach. It is in a quieter section of Mission Beach which we liked but close enough to walk to everything the beach area had to offer. Condo was very clean and in good repair. Well stocked kitchen and bathrooms. Loved the patio and although parking was tight, it was not an issue with a car. We liked the remote lock feature on the door so we weren't having to worry about keys. We would certainly stay at this property again and found Pacific Sands to be a very easy, professional company to work with. Great experience and beautiful area.

Exceeded our expectation!!!

  • 5 of 5

First I want to thank the staff, always careful to answer our queries. We were 6 days in San Diego and the house really fulfilled beyond our expectations. It has a very good location, just meters from the beach and shops.

It was a pleasure to have contacted you, certainly when we return to San Diego this would be our next home ;).

Exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

The vacation home exceeded our expectations. It was totally clean and equipment as well as facilities were perfect for our needs. Traveling with a baby is always combined with packing a lot of things but because you had so many things already in the house it made everything much easier for us. The beds were comfortable and all appliances worked perfectly well. Also the reservations process as well as you being very flexible with helping us out checkout-wise made our whole stay very convenient for us. So thanks a lot once again.

Great location & beach access, nice neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

My 3-person family stayed her during our daughter's fall break. The house was just as advertised, and was very convenient to the beach--we were able to safely walk to the beach barefoot, which I appreciated. We had an unusual problem two nights in a row where we couldn't completely close the front door (and therefore not lock the door). The property contact was unsure how to handle the problem since the handyman was gone, but ultimately she came over and fixed the problem--it has since been completely repaired, but it was distressing and took some time from our vacation. The only other issue was I couldn't get the wall units to really blow any cold air. It was cool enough to keep the house comfortable with just open windows or fans going, but I would check ahead if I were planning to rent during a hotter time. The house had a big selection of beach toys, and kitchen was well-stocked for normal needs. We had a great time here, and would consider renting here again knowing that our main issue (the door) was a fluke that has been fixed. There are a lot of planes flying overhead, as other reviews note, but frankly we tuned that out pretty quickly. The neighborhood has a lot of renters of college age, and I worried that noise would be a big issue--it wasn't at all. All told, a nice place to stay w/the amenities we needed.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place for families! I had my hubby and two teenagers with me and this place was perfect. It was clean and spotless upon arrival and very comfortable. As other people commented, the parking is very tight but not impossible. We rented bikes for the week and ended up either walking or biking everywhere to visit the shops and restaurants. There is some airplane noise, but I'm not sure you'd be able to avoid it completely anywhere on Mission Beach. I will also point out that it seemed like the area/rentals north of Belmont Park had more of a 'party' atmosphere. The area south (where this place is located) seemed to be more families, which was perfect for us. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone. As a matter of fact, my hubby already wants to start planning for next year!

perfect location

  • 5 of 5

we had a fabulous trip in San Diego. The house was nice and clean and meeting all our expectation. The location of the place was great (just steps away from the beach, short drive to seaworld, etc). The bedrooms are in good size, bed in the master bedroom is comfortable. I love the little hallway space area inside the master bedroom leading to the washroom esp when we have our little one with us. we can use the bathroom and the area outside the bathroom without waking our son who is sleeping in the bedroom. The owner is so considerate too to have some baby gears in the house, such as the highchair and eating utensil, pack n play (I won't need to bring ours if I know in advance though).

Anyways we are very satisfied with our stay in this place and would highly recommend it to our friends
