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 www.cdlp.mobi. .

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!

About Paula Christensen
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.
Paula Christensen purchased this Condo in 2006
Why Paula Christensen chose Mission Beach
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).
What makes this Condo unique
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'

We had a great stay at Casa de la Playa! We especially enjoyed the rooftop deck.
Casa de la Playa was a great spot to spend a week relaxing at the beach! We enjoyed spending our days walking the beach and hanging out on the rooftop deck. The views of the ocean and the sunset were spectacular. The property was very clean and exactly as listed in the description and photos. The kitchen was well stocked and we had plenty of towels. The rooftop deck has a large gas grill and eating arera for sunset dinners. The property is conveniently located near restaurants and shops (all within walking distance). The owners were also quick to respond to questions and very hospitable. We had a great time and would stay here again!
Thank you for your remarks. We love the roof top deck also, and are glad you enjoyed your stay!! We hope you can return again to our "homes on the beach", Casas de la Playa!!
Can’t Beat the View!
We spent a great spring break week at this unit and enjoyed every minute. The location was absolutely perfect and we loved sitting on the balcony or rooftop deck to people watch. We split up our days between theme parks, sightseeing and the beach, which worked out great. The sand toys and boogie boards were great for the kids, and we appreciated the laundry facilities and parking! The owners were staying in the complex at the time and were very warm and welcoming. They seem to genuinely want their guests to be comfortable and have fun. Overall, we had a great stay and hope to return!
Thank you for your kind remarks. We try to make Casa de la Playa as comfortable as possible for our guests. Since we also stay in the condos when in San Diego, we provide things that make it easier to cook, sight see, or just to relax! The roof top deck is semi private when the other unit is also occupied, and private if both upstairs units are occupied by the same group. The first floor units do NOT have access to the roof top deck. Thanks again for your stay. We hope that you can return again soon.
Location, location, location!
This is our second stay here in this condo on Mission Beach. We loved every minute of our stay! Can't beat the view of the Pacific out the front. Wonderful to sleep to the ocean sounds, too.
Thank you for the kind remarks. We love the upstairs units best, with the unobstructed ocean views and privacy. We hope that you always find Casa de la Playa your place at the beach!
Fantastic views in comfy condo
The views from the living/dining area were fantastic. We saw dolphins several days and people watching was a highlight. About 3 times a day you could watch many students taking surfing classes. Our trip was for a granddaughter's wedding and it was right outside our building! We especially loved the roof top where you could lounge, read, enjoy the view and barbecue. The unit itself was comfortable and we slept well on the king bed. Towels were nice and soft, kitchen fairly well stocked and they provided paper towels, dish soap, toilet paper, etc. Be sure and check out the closet near parking (key is in unit) that contains some things left by prior tenants. We found boogie boards and a couple of beach chairs BUT you must take your own beach towels. It would have been nice to have ceiling fans in the bedrooms or A/C but most days opening windows gave a nice breeze. We would definitely recommend this unit.
Thank you for the kind words. We also like to people watch from the second floor, and the surf school outside is very educational! The life guard station number 19 is very close, making the area a safe place to learn surfing. We try to provide the units with all essentials needed for a relaxing vacation. There should have been portable fans in the unit as well, for added ventilation. we hope that you will stay again at our "beach home", Casa de la Playa
What an amazing property!!!
I have been to San Diego many times, and usually stay right on the beach. I have to say that this condo is by far the best place my family has ever stayed at. The location is perfect, situated right in the middle of Mission Beach. There were many restaurants within 5 minutes of the condo, especially our 2 favorite places, Olive Café and Guava Bar/Grill. The view each morning is spectacular, as you wake up to crashing waves. My kids, 14, 3 and 9 months, couldn't wait to run down to the water each morning. The balcony is great for relaxing, but then there is the added bonus of the roof top deck that is only accessible to the 2nd floor tenants. Talk about a great place to watch the sunset. We also lucked out with our neighbors, Dee and Debra who regularly stay at this property for a month. They were so sweet and made our stay that much better. Finally, the property owner, Paula, was awesome to work with. She responded to emails and calls immediately, and I felt that I could reach out to her at any time with anything. We have found our forever condo on Mission beach. It doesn't get any better than this place, and we are counting down the days until we return.
Thank you for your kind remarks! I hope that you can return again soon to our "homes on the beach". We love return guests, and allow them "first chance " to re book the same time period before the booking calendar opens for the general public booking, about 11 months in advance. We hope that you found the "beach closet " in the parking lot area of the building with enough sand toys , etc. for your children. Thanks again for your patronage.
Our second stay here, I will be coming back.
Great location and very clean!
Thanks for your kind remarks. We love repeat guests, and hope you can make Casa de la Playa your family tradition!

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 have everything you need for a perfect stay in San Diego.
