Guestbook comments from the owner

Hanging out at this beautiful beach house. Bikes, Paddle Boards and toys were so much fun. The surf was great and relaxing in the lounge chairs on the patio was wonderful.

Thank you so much for your hospitality (the make shift baths were perfect).

I want to change my own home decorations to resemble this place.

Brilliant place!!

Perfect Family Get away!

  • 5 of 5

This is such a beautiful home I almost want to keep it my little secret, but I wont. Our family of 6 adults spent 7 nights in this beautiful home. It is exactly as listed. Very comfortable. We could not have asked for more. We have stayed in several homes at Mission Beach and this is by far one of the very best. After spending the day on the bikes & paddle boards come back and relax on the amazing lounge chair in the court yard. My husband informed me we are buying one for our patio. This home is convenient to everything we wanted & needed. If you have never been to Mission Beach I must tell you how valuable having the off street parking is. I really can't say enough great things about this lovely home. I know you will enjoy your stay as much as we did.

Absolutely Amazing Private location right next to the beach!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the modern updates & the darling reclaimed décor of this beach cottage that had plenty of light & space and a perfect location to walk to both the bay, ocean, & restaurants and right next door to the Catamaran Resort. We had family staying at the Catamaran for a birthday celebration, so it was super convenient to walk next door. There is an amazing bay view from the top floor and a nice private patio area just steps to the bayfront and parking for 3 cars is a huge plus. We liked the quiet & privacy of not having frontage on the beach or baywalk. This cottage has everything you could want in the way of kitchenware and beach gear, plus bikes and a washer & dryer. Shaz was a very responsive and accommodating host. A delightful stay and I would definitely recommend it and return again.

Had a great time here. Very comfortable and VERY convenient! Shaz was easy to communicate with and quickly responsive to all our questions as we got close to the check-in date.

Easy access to the Bay, walking path and all points along Mission Blvd.

Would absolutely stay here again! Thank you, Shaz!

Fantastic accommodating and Will be back every year if I have it my way!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented this gem twice now, making it an annual vacation/anniversary pad, which we share with our friends and family that join us from all different directions. It is so relaxing and comfortable and has everything we need to cook big meals for all and plenty of space inside and out for everyone. The amenities with the bikes and paddle boards and beach chairs make adventures on the bay side (calm) and the ocean side (more waves) fun for everyone to get to experience both ways of life and makes packing easy since we don’t have to bring much of anything!

Chaz has always been super accomidating with us with everything... late check out or early check in (when possible) etc!

We will most likely be back again next year!

Property was clean and had everything we needed for a great family vacation. Bikes and boards were a plus for Bay and ocean fun.

Good location. It some good info for those w/kids

  • 3 of 5

We love the mission Bay Area and the location of this house is great. It was clean and well decorated, but I do feel like there are a few things worth mentioning that are not clear in the property description.

First of all while you can see the bay from the upstairs window you must first look past the storage and garbage of the resort next door where employees take breaks all day and night and you can hear them in the house.

Secondly this house is not an ideal set up for kids. All the stairs are steep and hard, bedrooms are all far away from each other, and the bedroom over the garage was far too hot on a couple of nights for my kids to sleep up there. A simple Window AC unit would fix this. This bedroom could also really use a dresser and new carpet to match up to the quality of the rest of the house. Additionally there are no kids or family movies and most of the Wii remotes don't work.

Lastly the walkway to the beach is really a back alley that belongs to the property next door and which they use for storage. It is narrow and very hard to get the paddle boards out there. Apparently the neighbors allow guests of this property to use this walkway out of the kindness of their hearts which they pointed out to us more than once. Do NOT use the gate marked "private property" or they will chase you down and scold you. They did this to my 9 year old son when he was trying to get back to the house to use the bathroom and someone was sawing boards in the walkway.

I would have rated this house a 4 because of the location and decor as well as the supplies that come with the house (paddle boards, beach toys, stocked kitchen) but we were assessed an extra cleaning fee after we left despite the fact that we didn't use the upstairs unit for anything but the shower so it required little cleaning. We stripped all beds and started a load of towels as requested and left a very standard mess for a family of 5. We also had trouble with the internet while we were there and didn't have sheets for one of the upstairs beds when we arrived.

With so many house available for rent in the area I would not rent here again but will definitely return to the area!

Owner's Response: Im sorry that the additional cleaning fee has prompted such a review :( especially as when I visited with the correct password for the internet you said you were very happy. (the correct password was also in the information booklet) Additional linens for the sofa bed were delivered first thing in the morning as you kindly said you could manage the first night. This is the first time the cleaning company has passed on to me an additional fee for cleaning which they did support with photos and video. It was not a fee I imposed. All carpets, and area rugs were professionally cleaned at the beginning of the week. This is done every year after the busy summer season. I also have plans to replace the last carpeted bedroom with wood flooring probably in the next month and at your suggestion I can put in a chest of drawers :) There is also access to the beach via Windamere Court, which is about 20 paces south and the way you would go on the beach cruisers.
