About the property

Walk to restaurants, on the Strand! Upgraded condo on quiet side of Bay.

Newly remodeled in 2017 & 2018!! On the quiet Bay side! Sand and and surf all a few steps away. This is the perfect vacation retreat, located on beautiful and relaxing Sail Bay/Mission Bay just steps to the beach, walk to nearby restaurants, shopping and nightlife. Located directly on the boardwalk you can walk or bike easily to anywhere in Pacific Beach or Mission Beach. If you need bikes or water toys during your stay Bike rentals as well as water sport rentals are a 5 minute walk away.

This is not your typical beachy chic rental. We take pride in our unit and have furnished it with modern comfortable furniture. We even have an office area in the condo so you just have to hook your laptop and can work from the beach, if you need to. The bathrooms and kitchen have all been recently redone. The quartz counter kitchen is fully stocked with all utensils, and accessories from blender, toaster, coffee maker, rice cooker, etc. enjoy grilling on the balcony while watching the jet ski rides or have a romantic candle light dinner on the balcony looking at the evening lights over the bay.

From yoga on paddle boards to sailing the bay...its all in your front yard. Walk two blocks to the surf on the beach side for amazing sunsets. Free wireless, full cable, three TVs and one DVD for when you don't want to be on the go.

A rarity on the beach, our unit has a designated parking place with plenty of extra storage for all of your beach toys. In addition, there is a large public parking lot a short distance away making it easy for extra cars or visitors. The unit does not have central air but in San Diego who needs it? Our really hot days occur in July and usually a few days in the month. For that unusual event we have two portable air cooling units. Each unit cools approximately 350 square feet.

About David Rose

We are currently Florida residents and beaches are our passion. Both of us grew up in Southern California and missed the beaches and the California vibe. Our daughter and her family live here and we decided that we would like to spend part of the year here enjoying the them and San Diego.

David Rose purchased this condo in 2013

Why David Rose chose Bay View Villas

Mission Bay or as some call it Sail Bay is so much tranquil than the beach side. You can still be in the middle of all the action on the beach side which is a two minute walk, but if you want to get away from all the activity and find some peace and relaxation then the bay side is for you. The property has been renovated recently and is right on the boardwalk with unobstructed views of the bay. Another very important amenity is parking. One space right under the property is for tenants of the property only Parking spaces are very rare in the beach area. There is ample parking including overnight ( free ) at the Santa Clara lot a 5 minute walk away.

What makes this condo unique

We love the bay side of Mission Beach because it is more tranquil and quiet than the beach side. It is amazing to be able to enjoy both the beach and tranquility of the bay. Watch the bike riders on the boardwalk and the sail boats sail by as you seat in your bay front balcony. We hope you will love it as much as we do!

This is a high end rental. Quality furnishing, linens/towels and appliances. The unit was recently painted and new flooring (hardwood floors and tile) installed in late 2014, the kitchen and bathrooms were remodeled in 2016 and 2017. This is not a run down beach rental.

Beautiful bayfront unit with all the amenities you'll need for a wonderful week!

  • 5 of 5

This is a newly renovated unit with a large beautifully well-equipped kitchen, a comfortable spacious living room with awesome bay views, and two nice sized bedrooms and bathrooms upstairs. A very well-kept and nicely laid out rental in the heart of Mission Bay. Highly recommend !!!

Great location with a beautiful view, well stocked kitchen and comfortable beds!

  • 4 of 5

This condo is in a great location right on sail bay boardwalk overlooking mission bay. Being on the second and third floors gives you better views of the bay and a bit more privacy. The condo is well laid out for 4 guests. The beds are comfortable and the furniture is mostly good too. The kitchen had everything thing I needed to make Christmas Day dinner. We made use of the shared laundry. There is onsite parking for a compact or midsize car directly below the unit and ample extra parking was always available just around the corner at the public beach lot. A little constructive criticism that would make this a much nicer place to stay...the condo has too much cheap clutter and tchotchkes for our taste. The towels and bed lines are tired and dirty looking and need to be replaced. The throw pillows on the sofas and the beds are also dirty and should be washed or replaced. We put all the pillows and a lot of the dusty clutter away in the closets during our stay and the condo felt much fresher! The only real complaint we had during our stay was dealt with quickly and politely by manager David Rose who was a pleasure to deal with.

Wonderful Sail Bay rental

  • 4 of 5

This second/third floor unit is comfortable, clean and well appointed. Cross breezes kept things cool even in a humid week. We appreciated the fantastic location, including proximity to the bay and ocean, and the great retail and restaurants nearby. Great for a family. Note that laundry is in the complex, not the unit.

Great location with views. Very nice upgraded unit.

  • 5 of 5

Spent 2 weeks at this property and we had a great time. You really do not need a car. Many restaurants a short 3-10 minute walk and right on the strand. We loved getting up early and biking the strand from the bay to the ocean side. The unit is totally equipped so we did cook in a few nights. Loved to sit on the balcony to have our dinner and of course a bottle of wine and enjoy the bay views. The property has been upgraded true to the description on the web site. There were no surprises. David was very responsive to our requests and the check-in/out went very smoothly. We definitely will be back and stay here.

The unit is conveniently located on Mission Bay minutes from the I5 and I8 freeways. You can walk to major restaurants like Saska's, Surf Rider Pizza (best pizza in San Diego) or The Mission Cafe in minutes. You will want to catch a bite and a sunset at World's Famous right on the beach, a 15 minute walk on the beach side boardwalk. Walk to Belmont park have a bite at the new remodeled restaurants and ride the famous wooden roller coaster. Sea World is a short drive or bike ride. San Diego has so much to offer and everything is close; visit the Gas Lamp District downtown, Old Town and great shopping in Mission Valley. La Jolla is a 4 mile drive away with incredible restaurants and dramatic views of the Pacific. A San Diego must see is the San Diego Zoo known as one of the best in the world also the San Diego Safari Park is world class. Or just relax and enjoy the beach!

For summer guests we have purchased two portable a/c units that will cool the property. Most San Diego homes specially by the coast do not have a/c but due to a demand from our customers we have done so. We have one parking space right under the condo but plenty of beach parking a short 3 minute walk away.
