A Vacation By The Bay

About: We are individuals who own and manage vacation rentals for ourselves and a few neighborhood properties. Live in the neighborhood. We are hands on from the start of your reservation till your departure to assure you have a wonderful experience with your beach rental. With a long time family history in San Diego going back to the turn of the century, combined with roots from the midwest, we have both pride in San Diego, and good old fashioned values. We like to think we attract vacationers who appreciate receiving the exact rental that is advertised on our websites and desire a well maintained vacation home or rental that much care has been taken to provide. In return, appreciate and care for the rentals during their stay. The environment we provide and the bayside in Mission Beach is perfect for low key vacationers, who want an amazing location on the waterfront and coast. We never allow parties or group gatherings at our properties, to maintain the quality of the property and the respect towards our community and neighbors.

Why Mission Beach, San Diego, CA, USA:
Location and quality of the home were the most important factors of, 'why this property.' The Royal Tern is located in a very nice peaceful area of Mission Beach on the bayside. The vacation home, is a second home, for a family and is kept to a higher level of care and cleanliness than your average vacation rental. Therefore, our goal is to rent to guests who will respect and care for this home.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Location: First and foremost is our great location on the beach bayside, which is perfect for couples, and families wanting a lovely home to stay while visiting San Diego. Much pride and care has been taken in providing a wonderful vacation home that looks and fits the description on the website. We like to think we attract a more mindful vacationer who appreciates a very well cared for vacation home, that is a notch above the rest and in return takes care of the home while they are visiting. The quiet nature of the bayside, and the location, tend to lend themselves to a more low key beach experience. The area is also more mellow and quiet than most locations.
