About the property

6 Bedroom/ 4 Bathroom Sleeps 18-24

Experience Ocean Views from two identical connected Mission Beach townhouses rented together to create the perfect spot for your family gathering or group get-togethers. The connected townhomes are each three levels, 2,300 square feet total and are 50 steps to the boardwalk and sand in a quiet neighborhood of Mission Beach adjacent to Pacific Beach in San Diego, California.

You can't beat the location! The property is steps away from the ocean and boardwalk, across the street from quiet Mission Bay and just a few blocks from the dining and shopping district of Pacific Beach.

714 and 716 Whiting Court are connected on the second floor kitchen level via two lockable doors in each dining room and via a common front patio with a relaxing sitting-down view of the ocean, surf, sand and boardwalk. This unique configuration is perfect for many vacationers. It works great for two large families who want to vacation together, but may want some privacy as well. It is also appealing to groups with children as one side of the home could be the 'kid zone' with kid shows, toys, nap areas; and the other side could be the 'adult area' with adult beverages, visiting past 'bedtime' without toys scattered about!

Listen to the waves from one of the 6 bedrooms, or check the surf from one of the 6 private balconies off of each bedroom. The property has vaulted, spacious ceilings and several common areas.

There are two living rooms, two full sized kitchens and two dining rooms. Both homes have been newly remodeled in 2012 with new slate flooring, new carpeting and new kitchen appliances, which include new stainless steel refrigerators, stoves and microwaves, and new dishwashers.

Each townhome also has its own washer and dryer, and its own garage. THIS PLACE HAS 6 PARKING SPACES!

The town-homes are fully furnished. There are a total of four flat screen high definition TVs, two Blu-Ray/DVD players, complimentary Netflix and four full-sized sectional sofas.

The home sleeps 18-24. With 18 in beds - there are 2 California King Beds, 4 Queen Beds, 2 lower double bunk beds and 2 single upper bunk beds. Plus there is sleeping for up to another 6 in 2 living room queen size sleeper sofas.

High Definition Cable, Blu-ray and 20 Mbps Turbo broadband Wi-Fi internet included.

Recent improvements include a new outdoor shower, a deck expansion and all of the window and sliding glass doors have been replaced.

We, the owners, are regular beach goers and have kids so we have tons of sand toys, beach chairs, boogie boards, soft top surf boards, beach towels, umbrellas, everything you and your family/friends will need to experience living by the beach. We even include five bikes.

Please be careful of scams on Craigslist and note that we do not list our property on Craigslist.

Both town-homes are rented together, with a one week minimum, Saturday to Saturday in the summer.

About Ciara & Barry

After living in Pacific Beach for 15 years and enjoying everything San Diego has to offer, we wanted to deliver this experience to vacationers. We are long-term San Diego residents, and this is a family-run vacation rental business.

Ciara & Barry purchased this townhome in 2013

Why Ciara & Barry chose San Diego County

Scouring through hundreds of properties, we finally found the perfect spot. After planning several vacations ourselves we loved the location and flexibility of this home. It is perfect for family gatherings or special get togethers. This home provides 6 parking spaces, virtually unheard of! And it's walkable to everything you need.

What makes this townhome unique

Enjoying the people-watching on the beach, riding bikes along the boardwalk, surfing or swimming in the ocean just steps away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

5 of 5 stars

We had such a wondeful time at Whiting Manor. We had a large group, rangng from toddlers to seniors, and there was enough space for all; we even hosted a Christmas dinner, and there was enough cooking equipment to do that! The hosts of this house have everything, from sand toys to surf boards to 6 car parking capacity to plastic cups for toddlers. The home is lovely, but clearly meant to be lived in, i.e. no precious breakables, no white carpet, nothing that either small children or clumsy adults can break. Location is perfect, near the beach, near restaurants, near grocery stores, and yet so quiet at night, you can hear the waves. We loved it, and are already trying to figure out when we will return.

Perfect for Large Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

We rented both units which was perfect for a large family gathering. Having the two interconnected living spaces was wonderful. The kids could hang out in one living room and the adults in the other. Having the kitchen space open to the living space meant no one felt isolated while working in the kitchen. We logged lots of steps walking to some of the best restaurants around. Plenty of take out and eat in options close by. We all walked over to and along the beach several times a day. Plenty of entertainment within walking distance! We enjoyed Escapology just down the road. We also walked to an urgent care facility to tend to a cut.

Adjourning Twin Town Houses provide a comfortable setting for a multi-generational vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My brother & I enjoyed celebrating Thanksgiving with our adult children and grandchildren in the two adjourning town house units in San Diego, CA owned by Barry & Ciara Levine. We were just steps from the Pacific Ocean and Mission Bay and we enjoyed using the small surf boards and bicycles provided by our hosts. The kitchens were well supplied and connected so that the Thanksgiving meal could be easily assembled. The town houses were clean and well cared for and all of the many beds were comfortable. We will be sure to recommend this location to our friends and family.

Great location and very nice place.

  • 5 of 5

House was perfect for our needs. We were a group of 19 who stayed at the house for the Susan G. Komen 3 day walk. The layout of the house was great and loved the way they connected via the kitchens. We were able to cook and serve in one kitchen and then spread out to eat.

Condition of the house was excellent. Parking worked well to.

Would definitely stay here again if we have a large group.

Perfect for a large family!!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family (15 people) just spent the fall break at this vacation home. It could not have been better for the size of our group. Everyone had a bed to sleep in and the layout was perfect. A group this size always needs 2 kitchens and at this location the kitchens are right next to each other (so wonderful) and are supplied with all the necessary kitchen tools to make meals. The 2 dining tables provided seating for everyone. Beach towels-toys-chairs-umbrellas were all provided for a wonderful day at the beach, and the beach is just a 2 minute walk away. Parking is made easy with the two garages and also parking behind the garages. The outdoor barbque and patio were perfect for outdoor dining. Ciara and Barry were wonderful to work with and handled any questions quickly. We thank them for sharing their amazing home with our family!!!!!!!!

Fun Mission Beach Home for a crowd!

  • 5 of 5

If you are traveling with a crowd, this is the place to be. We had 4 couples, 9 kids under the age of 10 and a teenager-everyone had a great place to sleep. We rented both sides of this house and had plenty of room for everyone. It was great having two living rooms for kids to have their Disney channels and parents to watch football or anything besides kids shows! There were two huge tables so everyone could have a place to eat their meals without making a mess anywhere in the house. The kitchens had lots of supplies for everyone! We had a fabulous time at the beach-I think I counted 65 steps from the front door to the beach. It was great to hear the waves crashing at night time. Both sides of the house had LOTS of beach toys, chairs, bikes, beach towels. The two of us that could tear ourselves away from the beach went on a bike ride-it was relaxing and fun! The boardwalk is right there between the house and the beach. One night I went for a LONG walk on the boardwalk and loved the night air and felt safe- great area. We did have a problem with one of the bunk beds being broken, we called and let them know-we made it work for our stay. Our hosts offered to come and fix it right away but we said that was not necessary-they could fix it after our stay. The parking in the garage was tight, one of our 4 cars was an Expedition. But, it was great to be able to get all four of our cars parked inside-parking in the Mission Beach area is crazy tight. We have already recommended this place to a few of our friends. If you have a group like ours, you will probably be looking to find a Costco-it was just 10-15 minutes away. The local grocery just a few blocks away had lots of variety and was open late. A word of warning for those that are hot-there is no AC. But, there was lots of fans and you could have the windows open on the front side of the house. Overall, we loved this home-it was super close to the beach, we would love to come back someday!
