Property description

A vacation at the beach!! Doesn’t that sound like fun? You're right! It is FUN!! Come to San Diego and enjoy our mild weather year 'round with NO BUGS!! I guess they couldn't make it this far west!

This modern condo is on the 3rd floor of a 5 floor building with secure reserved parking on the first 2 floors and an elevator from the garages to the upper floors. This condo is spotlessly clean and designer decorated with a huge patio and a gas BBQ. You can actually see the Sea World fireworks in the summer from the balcony!! Walk out of the building and it's a one minute walk to the Pacific Ocean and a beautiful beach. Not oceanfront and that's why it is affordable. The oceanfront condos are at least twice the price!! Remember, you're only 1 minute to the ocean and half the price!! Now that's value!!

Beach bikes, beach towels - all included!!

Please note: This is a non-smoking building. There is no smoking inside the condo or on the balcony. San Diego has a non-smoking policy on the beaches, also.

LOCATION AT THE BEACH: Come to San Diego and enjoy “California’s Hidden Gem”. The only place in America with better weather is Hawaii!! San Diego’s average temperature is in the 60's - 80’s year round!!

Mission Beach is a unique California beach town. It’s a peninsula of high priced real estate surrounded by the Pacific Ocean on the west side and Mission Bay on the east. Two very different worlds. The Boardwalk and the Pacific Ocean beach is active, fun & busy. Body surf, board surf, boogie board, jump the waves, search for shells, build a sandcastle or just walk along the shore of the Pacific Ocean. Quiet & serene Mission Bay Park offers another world - sail, kayak, paddleboard, jet ski, swim, picnic & play tennis

Top 'o the Beach Condos - LOCATION! LOCATION! : The 21 condos in this section of 'Top o’ the Beach' are on the top three floors of a 5 story secure building (the first 2 levels are secure garage parking). This condo is a very cute one bedroom, one bath located on the ocean side of Redondo Court in North Mission Beach. Where’s Redondo Court? Redondo Court is right in the middle of North Mission Beach – about halfway between Belmont Park’s historic roller coaster and the famous Crystal Pier. A perfect location in Mission Beach. Because there is very little public parking in this area, the beaches are not very crowded, even in the summer. NICE! The Boardwalk and the Pacific Ocean are an easy 1 minute walk from the condo building.

This very cool beach condo is about 550 sq. feet and is exceptionally clean and designer decorated. It has new plantation shutters in the bedroom. The condo faces south so it’s bright and sunny with views of rooftops and surrounding buildings. It is not oceanfront and you cannot see the ocean from the balcony so that’s why the price is very affordable!! But don’t forget - you're only 50 steps to the ocean!

CHECK OUT THE EXTRAS – ALL INCLUDED!: We’ve tried to think of everything you would need to have a carefree, fun filled time at the beach. No kidding. Check out all that is included!! The kitchen is fully equipped with a full-size refrigerator, stove & oven, microwave, blender, toaster, coffeemaker, coffee grinder, plenty of dishes, glasses, silverware, utensils, pots and pans. There are also spices, kitchen towels, pot holders, paper towels, dish soap. Just bring your food and drinks!!

For your convenience, there is a coin operated washer and dryer in the secure garage.

Headed for the beach? Grab the beach towels and beach chairs - all included!! You even have 2 very cool beach cruiser bikes!!

Mission Beach is a unique California beach town. It’s a peninsula of high priced real estate with the Pacific Ocean on the west and Mission Bay on the east. Two very different worlds. The Boardwalk and the beach is active, fun & busy. Body surf, board surf, boogie board, jump the waves, search for shells, build a sandcastle or just walk along the shore of the Pacific Ocean. Quiet & serene Mission Bay Park offers another world - sail, kayak, swim, picnic & play tennis. Ride bikes or skate on miles of ocean and bayfront sidewalks. Only a block apart but a world of difference. Your choice. Enjoy both!!

Mission Beach is central to all the fun spots in San Diego!! 15 minutes to the airport & Sea World, Seaport Village, the Downtown Gas Lamp, Seaport, Little Italy, Balboa Park, Old Town, Petco Park, the famous San Diego Zoo and posh La Jolla. 50 minutes to the Wild Animal Park and Legoland. Try your luck in the summer at the Del Mar Horse Racing Track – just 20 minutes north.

Other Activities: collect shells, long walks on the beach, watch for a 'green flash' at sunset

Golf: There are over 100 golf courses in San Diego County! World famous Torrey Pines is less than 15 minutes from Mission Beach and the green fees are very affordable!! Book early because it is very popular!

Ski: No downhill snow skiing here! The closest winter skiing is Big Bear! Check out my website! I have a vacation rental in Big Bear!!

In Mission Beach, you can water-ski, jet-ski, kayak, wind surf, kite surf, boogie board. And, of course, catch a wave at the Pacific Ocean!!

Other Things To Do - Mission Beach is central to all the fun spots in San Diego!! 12 minutes to the San Diego International Airport, five minutes to Sea World, 15 minutes to Seaport Village, the Downtown Gas Lamp, Little Italy, Balboa Park and the famous San Diego Zoo. It’s a 40 minute drive north to the Wild Animal Park and Legoland. Posh La Jolla, with all those expensive shops and restaurants, is just 10 minutes north. You might also enjoy the Scripps Aquarium while you’re in La Jolla. In the summer, try your luck at the Del Mar Horse Racing Track – just 20 minutes north - or indulge in a margarita in Old Town - just 10 minutes from Mission Beach.

Public Transportation - If you want to forget renting a car or just leave your car parked, there is good bus service on Mission Blvd. that can get you all over San Diego and also connects to the red trolley in Old Town. Take the red trolley to Petco Park - our baseball field downtown, or all the way to Tijuana, Mexico.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: I grew up at the beach in San Diego - just a mile from this condo!! I graduated from Mission Bay High School and San Diego State University! I have lived in Mission Beach, as well as the horse country in East County, Solana Beach in North County, Old TownCoronado and now I live downtown!!. Do include a visit to Coronado and downtown when you come to San Diego! I have been in the travel industry for many years and have been fortunate to travel much of the world. I always love coming back to my home - San Diego. Very honestly, other than Hawaii, San Diego has the best weather in America. We can BBQ outside almost every day! You'll see bikers and joggers every day. I still enjoy watching the surfers and walking on the beach at sunset and, hopefully, lucky to see a green flash! Yes, there really is a green flash!! The biggest mistake travelers make is not planning to spend enough days on their vacation. 3 nights is really only 2 days to see things! Spend a week in San Diego and I know you'll want to come back!! Lots to see and do. Don't forget to enjoy some days of doing nothing on our beautiful beaches!!

Why the Owner Chose Mission Beach, San Diego, CA, USA:
Growing up near the beach, I always had so much fun in Mission Beach. It was my lucky day in 2004 when I saw this condo for sale! I had lots of fun furnishing and decorating with the help of my designer friend! I chose royal blue carpet to keep the ocean theme. Last year, I bought a new sofa sleeper for the living room. I am always trying to update!! I love the location of this condo. 1 minute walk to the Boardwalk and the Pacific Ocean. Turn right on the Boardwalk and walk to lots of restaurants and Crystal Pier. Turn left and walk to Belmont Park's famous rollercoaster and the Wavehouse! All fun and all an easy walk. This location is very central in Mission beach. Because there's not much public parking, the beach out front is never very crowded, even in the summer! Perfect central location plus it's QUIET!! Within 3 blocks are a dozen restaurants, bars and shops! Walk or ride the beach bikes (2 included) on miles of flat bayfront and oceanfront sidewalks. Very fun! Sit on the Boardwalk wall at sunset and watch the surfers and maybe you'll see a green flash! Yes, there really is such a thing as a green flash!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Terrific Location! Walk, jog or ride bikes to restaurants, shops, bars and beautiful beaches! All included - beach bikes, beach towels, beach toys, boogie boards, long distance calls, secure WiFi, cable TV, fully equipped kitchen including the spices!! Numbered, reserved parking spot in a gated garage!! That's the biggest benefit!!
