About the property

Unbeatable Location! 6 Bedroom/4 Bathroom with 10 beds & two sofa beds

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. This unique property includes 6 private balconies and a huge front deck for entertaining. There is ample parking for 6 vehicles. This home also has high speed Wi-Fi throughout the home with complimentary Netflix and premium cable.

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.

We supply 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 several bikes.

The two townhomes 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 multiple 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 and visiting past 'bedtime' without toys scattered about!

The connected townhomes are each three levels, 2,300 square feet total.There are two living rooms, two full sized kitchens and two dining rooms. Each townhome also has its own washer and dryer, and its own garage. 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 to allow your group to spread out.

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

The home sleeps 18-22. With 18 in beds - there are 2 California King Beds, 4 Queen Beds, 2 lower Full size bunk beds and 2 single twin bunk beds. Plus there is sleeping for 2 in each of the 2 living room queen size sleeper sofas.

Please note the home does not have air conditioning, but several fans are provided and the ocean breeze keeps the home cool.

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

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 Mission Beach

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.

Beach cottages were wonderful. They were everything we hoped they would be.

  • 5 of 5

Overall experience was great. We filled the 2 adjoining cottages to the brim with 24 staying there for a family reunion. Loved the double living rooms, double kitchens. One side seemed to be the active side where family gathered to chat, the other side became the quieter side if you wanted to relax. We spent most of our time at the beach or other activities. Parking was sufficient and we found parking nearby for a rather large van. Cottages were well stocked with beach toys, bikes, linens and we used them all. For us it was the perfect place. One couple did have to sleep on the sofa hide a bed in one of the living rooms. With 6 bedrooms and 7 couples plus children, we had to be creative but made it work. It did indeed sleep 24. We even brought a Christmas tree and put it up on the main deck. Festive and fun. Thank you for a wonderful experience. Suzanne Brooking

Great family reunion with small children

  • 5 of 5

We looked at lots of locations to find something that was near the beach and could accommodate a LARGE group. We filled every inch of these two townhouses with 10 adults and 13 grand-children, but it was wonderful. When we weren't visiting the USS Midway or Downtown San Diego, the grandchildren were at the beach until the sun went down. We had a bed for everyone (some of the "littles" doubled up) and we cooked dinner every night but one. Both kitchens had plenty of pans, dishes, silverware, bowls--everything that we needed. The grown-ups went to dinner one night at an excellent restaurant that was in walking distance, so we felt safe leaving the older kids in charge. This property is exactly as it is represented and has lots of extras (bikes, boogie boards and parking). We had a few questions which Ciara quickly answered by phone--I might be the only person left who doesn't text! Great place and we highly recommend it.

Perfect place for a large family and perfect location to everything!

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of 12 rented both of Ciara's places for a long weekend to celebrate my father-in-laws 80th birthday. We had plenty of space for the 6 kids and 6 adults. Perfect location right next to the beach - walking distance to restaurants, coffee and the grocery store. We took full advantage of the bikes to do errands and the toys for the kids.

Ciara was amazing all throughout the reservation process as well as during and after, even helping us to locate some items left-behind after we thought we had searched the house before we checked out.

Our only regret is that we didn't have at least one or 2 days to just chill at the house and the beach! We would come back in a heartbeat if we decide to do San Diego again and would recommend the houses to anyone looking for a place near the beach.

70th BirthdayFamily Gathering

  • 5 of 5

The location of these two units is PERFECT!. Just steps away from the ocean, but privacy for those times you sit out on the decks. The bay is a short walk, less five minutes. Stores and great places to eat can be walked to or ride the bikes (there are three provided with the rental). We did not need to bring any sand toys, boogie boards or surf boards. These were supplied. We did go to the bay side and rent paddle boards. This was so close to the units, we walked.

There were fifteen people in our group, nine adults and six kids. We did not feel crowded at any time. LOTS of space for everyone to enjoy themselves. Having two kitchens was wonderful. Both units have everything you need. I would recommend these unit to anyone looking for a fun, relaxed place to host a family gathering or a group of friends that want to spend time together.

Ciara and Barry are great host!! They let us know that if we needed anything they were just a phone call or text away. The guest guideline book they have provides suggestions on things to do and places to eat.

I have rented many condos in other states and these units rank 5 out of 5!

Very nice and clean

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the stay a lot, there was plenty of room for the ten of us. Some couldn't come at the last moment. The access to the beach was perfect. Was not that far from all the activities we were doing. We would recommend this place to anyone who wanted to visit San Diego. We also would come back and stay to.

Thanks so much
