About Marianne Simmons

I grew up at the beach and always wanted a beach house. I have had several wonderful memories in this home along with my kids and now my grand-kids.

Marianne Simmons purchased this townhome in 1998

Why Marianne Simmons chose San Diego County

I use to come to the boardwalk often to bike ride, roller blade etc it was a blessing to get this place. I never thought it to be possible.

What makes this townhome unique

It is the best to watch the sunset from the deck with a glass of wine. I have seen many sunsets too beautiful for words including the green flash.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had our family reunion in San Diego and stayed in this unit.

It was wonderful exactly what was advertised.

Clean with a beautiful ocean view just steps to the beach and very close to everything.

We will definately be back next summer!!

Just arrived home from a wonderful week on Mission Beach! What a great trip! This location is perfect! Walking distance to everything and the view is spectacular. The master bedroom is upstairs, and you can hear the waves all night long! Haven't slept that well in years! The condo has eveeything you need. Would return tomorrow if I could! Thanks Marianne for letting us stay at your home... And always being available for any questions!!! Would highly recommend staying!!!

A perfect location in the heart of Mission beach!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great relaxing week watching and listening to the waves. The location is perfect looking right at the water. There are 3 bedrooms one with a Queen, one with two singles and an upstairs with two more queens. The kitchen had all the utensils that we needed. Marrianne was very accommodating and easy to work with. There was even a bottle of wine waiting for us on the table.

I will mention a couple things that may bother some people but not us:

The main floor kitchen level is on the second floor and the third floor is the "master" so there are steps to walk up. You have half of one deck with the neighbors so need to respect that and have to walk by them if they are out watching the ocean to enter your unit. Master bath is on the smaller side. TV has no cable channels but we enjoyed not having kids watch it.

The location and coziness of the condo are the key features, literally less then 100 feet to pizza, beer, great steakhouse, breakfast,coffee and bike rentals (which I recommend you bring onto deck at night) overall a great place for a family of 6-8.

We would rent again!

Mediocre at best. You get what you pay for. Note most recent reviews are from2014. Pictures are not

  • 2 of 5

The location is great. The view is good. The size is good. However, it is misleading that it is an upstairs unit of 4 total units. There is a very narrow small balcony and stairway to the unit that is shared with an adjoining apartment. This a very close quarters and difficult to move about the neighbors entry to get to this unit. The TV remotes were missing batteries. The coffee maker is difficult at best to work. The oven was filled with burn over from previous guests and smoke poured from it the first time we used it. The refrigerator had an internal leak wich was know as there was a pan catching & filled with water that had leaked over. The kitchen sink knob has to be placed in perfect position in order to stop the flow of water. The blinds in some Windows are missing vertical slats & the upstairs blinds do not shut. Worst of all is that the adjoining renters were chain smokers and continually smoked in the very small adjoining balcony wich filled the unit with smoke and my family had to walk single file across a row of smokers in order to get down the stairs. There is no bike storage anywhere so if you bring cruisers expect to carry them up the narrow stairs across other renters every night. Although the owner was prompt in responding to the issues there was nothing to be done during the stay. There are many other properties on the beach and next time we will definitely spend a little extra. We will not rent this property again sorry to say.

Owner's Response: I wish you had let me know you had my phone number. My handyman checked these things and were all fixed in 15 minutes. Im sorry for the smoking but alittle out of my control

Great spot for a family

  • 4 of 5

My family and I had a great time on our vacation. The view from the balcony is excellent and the location was perfect. The owner was very responsive to our questions and even had someone at the rental within an hour of a minor issue we had with the fridge.

The beds were small for a king, so not sure they are kings size beds, but the rooms were clean and cozy.

All in all, a great location for families!

Wonderful Beach Vacation

  • 4 of 5

Marianne was great! Answered all calls promptly! We parked in wrong space, so be careful about that, they tow! Peaceful, but could see boardwalk and ocean view spectacular! Would recommend for a family or 2 couples. Thanks for a great week!
