About Paula Christensen

We have always loved the San Diego area and the Mission Beach area in particular. When we sold our farm we were finally able to afford to buy the four plex known as Casa de la Playa.

Why Paula Christensen chose Mission Beach

We traveled to this area frequently for work, and when we had the opportunity to buy Casa de la Playa, we finally were able to own a 'place on the sand'.

We have enjoyed making it the 'beach home' that we love to stay in as well as hopefully a good vacation destination for you.

What makes this condo unique

The unique benefit to staying here at Casa de la Playa is the fact that all four units are decorated and have the same amenities. You can be sure that if you stay in Casa de la Playa, you will get a good value for your vacation dollar and you can be assured that the owners will try to keep everything working properly for your stay at the beach.

The condo also has a numeric keyless entry door that allows you to have a unique, time-sensitive code that will not allow any other to enter your condo for the duration of your stay. The code is issued for your stay in your unit only, and will not work for any other units or guests, unless you share it.

Owner's Response: We are glad that you decided to return to Casa de la Playa. We use the kitchens when we stay in the condos, so we try to provide all the essential pots and pans for preparing a GREAT meal!! We hope that you can return again to our Mission Beach condos. Repeat guests get first chance to reserve the same unit for the next year, before the booking calendar is opened up to general booking. Thanks again for your patronage.

Beach Time- OCT 2017

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at the beach. Cas de la Playa (2nd floor with roof top balcony) was terrific. Perfect size for couples or a family of four. Views were amazing. Obviously close to the beach which was epic for sunbathing and surfing, the place was close to all the restaurants and events. We will be back and looking to stay longer. Abrams and Light Family.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. We feel that Casa de la Playa is the best place to be ocean front in Mission Beach!! Our guests also get first priority in re booking for the same time period the next year, so we definitely hope that you can return again to our "beach homes"!

We come here every year (if possible) and always a great time.

  • 5 of 5

This is a little slice of paradise for a reasonable price, right on the beach!

The owner is extremely helpful and easy to contact about any concerns.

Comfortable beds, lots of kitchen amenities, and even a grill on the rooftop!

We love coming here and give Casa de la Playa our whole-hearted recommendation.

Wonderful place for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Every year, for the past several years, my entire family and I spend a week long family vacation in the top two units at this location. We love it. We hope to continue to vacation there for the next several years.

The units are spacious and clean and have everything we need to enjoy our stay. The units have an amazing view of the beach and ocean. The roof access has a beautiful view as well, and we make sure we're always up there at the end of the day to enjoy the sunset. It also has plenty of chairs and tables to accommodate a large family along with two grills.

Our grade school aged children have an absolute blast. The beach is only a ten second walk across the boardwalk. There are several restaurants and specialty shops within walking distance.

We love this place, it has allowed us to create great memories that we will cherish forever. I highly recommend this location to anyone looking for a wonderful place to spend a family vacation.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind remarks. We love repeat guests, and offer a conditional multiple unit booking discount (if all items are replaced back into original condos at the end of the stay!). We also allow returning guests a month to RE book the unit for next year before we open the units up to general booking for everyone about 11 months in advance. We hope that you continue to make Casa de la Playa your family retreat! Thanks again!

comfortable and convenient location

  • 4 of 5

Loved the roof top deck and the king bed was very comfortable. Loved being up 1 floor to look out and over the busy walkway.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. We also like the second floor units best, because they are "above the crowd" and the roof top deck has unbeatable views. We hope that you can return again.

San Diego is a tourist destination, with Sea World, Golfing, Museums, Spanish Missions, Sports arenas and major teams, all within easy drive. The condominium is close to bus lines making a car not a necessity. Learn to surf, look for shells, or just enjoy people watching from your patio or the roof top deck. (The roof deck is ONLY for use by the second floor units (THIS unit, and 3683, listing #511942)

Check in time is 3:00PM, and checkout time is 10:00AM, to allow the housekeepers adequate time to thoroughly clean the unit so you can have a great vacation.
