Perfect location, lovely home

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed in this property for 10 days. The location was amazing - perfect walking distance to restaurants, shops, Belmont Park, ice cream, and more. We left our shoes on the patio and walked barefoot across the boardwalk right onto the sand. Having a home this close to the beach makes it SO easy with kids - snacks and a restroom are less than 50 feet away. Plus, no sand in the car!

The beach feels semi-private because of the lack of public parking nearby. It's not crowded at all...I didn't realize this until walking down to the Belmont Park area, where the crowds were incredibly thick. The beach area is VERY clean with plenty of seashells, sand dollars and other treasures for the kids to pick up, but not enough shells/rocks to make it painful to walk or jog along the shoreline.

We had a couple of minor maintenance issues and the management company sent someone over to fix them that same day. (a chirping smoke detector, a stuck window, instant hot water heater needed to be reset...these problems won't likely occur again)

The appliances were in great working condition, we cooked on the gas stove every day, there were plenty of dishes and glassware, plus extra dishwasher soap and paper towels, but we had to buy extra toilet paper because of our longer vacation.

The beds were comfortable and there were plenty of extra pillows (with options of different levels of firmness) and enough bath towels/beach towels for everyone.

We were pleasantly surprised to discover that the tv had plenty of channels and a free Netflix account, so we didn't have to rent movies for the kids. The WiFi also worked great (we had multiple devices).

Nearby places that we enjoyed include: the Olive Cafe (and Olive Bakery and definitely hot fudge sundaes from Olive Creamery), La Playa Taco Shop, my mom and my kids rented fishing poles for $10 each at the Pier just north of the property and they each caught 2+ fish, even a guitar shark!

This location felt safe enough to sleep with our windows open and even safe enough to leave the house unlocked while we were at the beach. (we could easily see the patio from where we were sitting)

Overall, this was a great experience. We highly recommend this property!

Beach House

  • 3 of 5

It was a great place to stay. The house was good Could have used more bath towel. It was not great having the washer and dryer in the garage.

The walkway in front of the house was a bit bothersome.... there were a lot of pot smoking each night on the walkway.

Could not leave windows or curtains open at night because of the walkway.

Upper unit would be better... away from all the people on the walkway.So house was good... location... average.

The location was excellent, accessible to the boardwalk and the beach and also minutes from the attractions of San Diego. The layout and ground level walk out worked out well and the view was incredible. It was clean and well stocked. Perfect for an ocean getaway.

The Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

The location was incredible! It is the perfect location in the middle of the Boardwalk on Mission Beach and it is ideal that it is ground level. It is wonderful that the water is so close that we able to let our daughter play without needing to stay down with her on the beach the entire time she wanted to be there. We did watch carefully from the patio but at least we knew that we could run there in less than 60 seconds if she needed us. I wouldn't do this with certain kids unless they are "rule follows" and cautious kids but for our youngest at 8 years old this worked for her. The sofa was pretty old and uncomfortable but frankly we didn't use it much so it didn't really bother us. We rented bikes for the week and rode everywhere. It was nice that the two car garage accommodated our SUV and all our bikes easily for the week. For the price charged I felt the property was great. It could use a deeper clean really mainly of the windows but given that we had such a great time and felt it was a good value for the price paid we are giving it 5 stars. Also, it may be a challenge on the water to keep window sills and windows clean. The company that managed this home was awesome! They couldn't have been easier to deal with or any more friendly. Such a great young group it seems. I will definitely seek them out when we come back likely in April.

Terrific condo in amazing location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 had a wonderful week at this unit. The view cannot be beat and the location on Mission Beach is fantastic. The unit was clean and had good starter set up. We had an issue with one of the beds after our second night, but Bluewater was terrific and handled the issue that day. The maintenance people were very nice. Just a 5 minute walk on Santa Clara there is a place called Baked that has great breakfast items and The Boardwalk is good for lunch and dinner. There is a Ralph's grocery store that is a less than a mile away North. You can drive or walk up the boardwalk. The garage is great, but the parking is a bit tight, especially if you are used to more ample, suburban type space. We had a mini-van, and we had to park diagonally in the garage to make it easiest to get out. I recommend the smallest vehicle that you can get by with during your trip. We were all very sad to leave. My kids already want me to book your next visit. Even after daily walks on the boardwalk, I did not see another place that I felt like would have been better. I highly recommend this unit and Bluewater rental.
