About the Property

3683 Ocean Front Wk 2 bedroom, 1 bath 2nd floor condo with roof deck, BBQ

Located halfway between Belmont Park and Crystal Pier, Casa de la Playa is a perfect vacation spot for being ON the beach, yet close to all the attractions that the San DIego area offers.

Casa de la Playa is located in the 'quieter zone' of Mission Beach, far enough away from the Noise and crowds of the Pier and Belmont park, yet close enough to walk easily to any part of the Mission Beach area.

This 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom Condo has all the amenities you need to make your stay comfortable and the free, password protected, wireless internet keeps you connected. This unit can be rented along with 3679 Ocean Front Walk in the same building and connected via a suite door to allow a party of up to 12 people to share its 4 bedrooms and two bathrooms, and a PRIVATE roof top deck only accessible by 3679 and 3683 Ocean Front Walk. It is perfect for a girls retreat, or two families, and the suite door between the units can be shut by either party for privacy.

This unit is part of a four plex all owned by the same owner, and pride of ownership can be clearly seen in its furnishings, and attention to detail. (To see the other units, please see VRBO listings 511938, 511939, 511940, (the adjoining unit 3679), and 511941, or check out the owners website at . Each unit in the building has its own BBQ and assigned parking spot. All have Ocean Front views from the living rooms. All are decorated the same and have the same amenities.

You will find Casa de la Playa a delightful place to vacation on the beach, and want to return to San Diego as often as you can!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: We have traveled to San Diego for work since the mid-1970s. It has been a spot we always wanted to be a part of, but were unable to afford, until we sold our farm. Our dream of beach ownership came true when we sold our farm for 'just enough' to afford Casa de la Playa.

Why the Owner Chose Mission Beach, San Diego, CA, USA:
We liked the idea of four condos in one building because we have four children, and this would allow them to have a place on the beach of their own someday. Because we worked in the area, we knew that the Mission Beach area was rapidly becoming more upscale, and since we have purchased this property, we have improved its infrastructure, and added the features that make it more desirable (roof top deck for upper two units).

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The unique benefits of owning this condo, is that while you sit in comfort in your living room, you can sip your morning coffee and watch the dolphins and the surfers from the comfort of your sofa. You can also enjoy more private sunbathing on your rooftop deck area. We enjoy staying at any one of the condos in the building, and since the wireless is provided by two different carriers, you can be assured of 'being connected'
