Relaxing Week in San Diego

  • 5 of 5

Visited as two families with teenagers. Accommodations very comfortable and, along with excellent location, provided us with a lot of options to keep everyone happy: Short walk to the beach for those wanting to sun-bathe/swim; two outdoor areas for hanging out/quiet time/reading; Internet for the gamer; HDTV for watching the Tour de France/movies; walk, Lyft or drive to restaurants / micro-breweries; and gas BBQ for a break from restaurants. Good times!

Great location between the beach and the bay.

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 6 enjoyed our stay in this property. Tracy is extremely responsive, there is parking for your rental car in a garage, the views from the 4th floor deck are great and the beach/bay toys for use are extensive (paddle board, surf board, chairs, umbrellas, bikes and boogie boards). The deck dining room table seats 6. This is in a urban location, so there is street and airplane noise, but overall we had a great time and appreciated Tracy's responsiveness.

Beautiful and clean condo perfect between Mission Beach and Mission Bay

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful and clean condo perfect between Mission Beach and Mission Bay was a great place for my teenage kids to have some freedom to explore and not be too far from home. The amenities were as stated and the roof top patio was perfect for watching fireworks nightly from Sea World! Would definitely stay again.

Good Property in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this beach house and found it to be as advertised. The set up is nice, with three decent size bedrooms on the level above the garage. The master is a good size with an on-suite bathroom. The water pressure in the showers was great to wash off any sand you still have left over from the beach. The upper level has a nice kitchen and a large couch for lounging. Also, there is an outdoor table for dining and the top level deck gives spectacular views of the coast up towards La Jolla, Point Loma, and up Mission Valley. We didn't use it as much as we had hoped, but is a great area to relax in the evening and enjoy the weather in San Diego. The property had plenty of beach activity goods in the garage, so don't worry about bringing your own.

Is a little more than a hotel might run you if you are staying in hotel circle, but for the space, rooms, and location it is an exceptional value, especially if you want to stay near the beach and are traveling as a family. It also gets an extra mark for being down the street from the Mission for breakfast. I should mention that Mission Beach does lie in the flight path of planes leaving the airport so you will hear them as they leave, but its not like they are rattling the windows. Also, it wasn't overly loud even with some college students in the places next door and across the alley. Stay here, stock up at the liquor store down the block, and enjoy your trip to America's finest city.

Memorable Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful visit to San Diego, and enjoyed staying in this Mission Beach condo! We made some great memories here, and would recommend it to anyone looking for a vacation home in the San Diego Mission Beach area.

We are a family with three young kids (ages 5, 3, 1), and all of us plus grandma stayed here for 6 nights.

PROS: We were so close to the ocean and the bay! We especially enjoyed the ocean. From the top of the condo you can see the ocean and bay, and the rollercoaster (Belmont Park). We were also close to Sea World and the San Diego Zoo, both of which we visited. We were delighted to find some baby items we needed (like a pack n play and a baby gate), as well as several bikes, including two kids' bikes & helmets (our daughter learned to ride a bike using one of them!), and lots of sand toys for the kids and adults :) We made good use of the washer and dryer. The kitchen is awesome, and well-stocked for most cooking needs. Also several delicious restaurants nearby. Love the tacos! There is a park with a playground close by, and lots of trails to walk/run/bike/etc.

CONS: With the 6 of us, we had rented a large vehicle, which was a challenge to get in and out of the garage. There is the lovely view from the top, but the rest of the condo looks out to buildings and alleyways. You can hear noises coming from Belmont Park at night (rollercoaster screams!), but after a while it just becomes background noise, so it didn't really bother us too much. I wouldn't recommend going to the park late at night or early in the morning because there is a rather large homeless population nearby.

Overall, we were very happy with our stay. The PROS far outweighed the CONS! Thanks for a wonderful visit, and we will certainly consider staying here again if we come back to San Diego.

Repeat Renters

  • 5 of 5

We love this place so much we've rented it every year for the last four years! Newer condo in excellent shape! Super comfy master bed! Location cannot be beat - one block to ocean and one block the other way to the bay! Across the street from Belmont Amusement Park and restaurants. 15 minutes to airport, San Diego Zoo and 5 minutes to Sea World! Condo comes with all the toys - kayak, paddle board, adult/kid bikes, beach chairs and more! Favorite feature: Roof top deck with ocean/bay views! Perfect for sunbathing with a good book! Property manager is two buildings away and is a dream to deal with! It just doesn't get any better or easier!
