When you include this insurance with your reservation, the cost and repair of covered accidental damage will be handled by us! What does it cover? Unintentional damage to the vacation rental during your stay, up to $1,500, including things like carpet spills, furniture tears, broken lamps, and even pet damage in pet-friendly homes! *

... a family member back home passes away and you must return early from your vacation?

We love this place so much, we keep coming back! We have stayed here 3 times, and are never disappointed. The place is clean and has everything we need to make our family vacation enjoyable. We LOVE that it's so close to the beach, and there are a lot of things to do nearby. The owner, Patricia, is very accommodating and helpful. We consider her a good friend. Thanks for the wonderful time! We are already looking forward to visiting next summer!

Best of All Worlds

  • 5 of 5

I have owned my own rentals in Mission Beach and been a long-time resident. Now that I live out of the area, this is my favorite place to stay. The 2nd floor unit of this place has 3 generously sized bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The floor plan allows all guests to spread out and have some privacy. It has an open landing in the middle, like a courtyard, and it provides great air flow to catch ocean breezes. It is clean and comfortable and well stocked. It's not right on the ocean, but frankly, I don't like renting on the boardwalk because it's like living in a fishbowl - there are literally thousands of people walking past all day and night and they all look right in the windows of every ocean front property. This place is set back just one lot from the sand but the living area and front bedroom have a commanding view of the surf through the opening made by Kennebeck Ct. The large, private rooftop deck has 360 degree views and a nearly unobstructed ocean view. We watched the sunset every night. The location provides an easy walk to restaurants near Belmont Park or up in the old Mission Beach business district. Patricia is great to work with and you get two (2) roomy parking spots - a treat in this congested community. I don't think I'll ever rent anyplace else.

This place was clean when we arrived. It is stocked with more than enough of everything in the kitchen. The location is perfect, steps away from the beach! Patricia was easy to communicate with. She responded quickly whenever I tried to get a hold of her. Thank you for the great week at the beach! We loved it!

This 3 BR 1 3/4 Bath beach house is a great value! Easy to book, easy parking and great location.

  • 5 of 5

Not right on Ocean Walk, but the view is great from the roof deck ... just 1 house back on Strand (alley). Belmont Park is nearby. Take Uber and Lyft rides to and from Pacific Beach where the dining and shopping are great, but parking can be difficult or expensive.

If you're expecting the newest, ocean front, pristine, sparkling beach house with A/C, and need a huge master suite, this is not for you. If you like the charm of an older, well -maintained place, at an affordable price, you will be happy you chose this house. The roof deck view is great, but there are power lines. Go to the beach for pictures. The balcony view off the master BR is good, but the balcony is small. Shared garage washer/dryer was never a problem with the downstairs neighbor - they are delightful folks. The layout of the house is quirky, but there is a lot of privacy because of the layout. The kitchen is spacious with plenty of counter space for cooking. We did not cook or use the rooftop BBQ this trip, but it is set up great to do so. There are 2 dedicated parking spaces (not garage) - larger SUV's and trucks will fit in one, smaller sedans are ideal for the other. If you've experienced parking issues in garages in Mission Beach you know how great a spacious place to park is! Priceless! The sofa sleeper is comfortable in a pinch - kids will love it, in front of the big TV! The other bedroom TV's are small and outdated. Wi-fi was great! We enjoyed a relaxed week and will definitely stay again during cool months, when the cool ocean breeze is all that is needed to sleep comfortably. This June trip for Father's Day and the SD County Fair was one of our best ... we've stayed in a lot of beach houses over the last 25 years and found this beach house's "vibe" to be one of our favorites.

Tips ... take a cooler for chilling drinks and water - the fridge fills up quickly! There is no ice maker; plan on buying ice, a lot. There is a small store nearby.

Patricia is great - everything was easy and smooth!

Beach Bliss

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 just got back from San Diego and stayed in this upstairs condo. No one was in downstairs unit so we had complete privacy. This condo was better stocked than many I have rented. Patricia was easy to work with and condo was better than advertised. It looks to be a block to water in pictures but was only one house away from ocean and boardwalk. we watched sunrise and sunsets from the rooftop deck. Great views of ocean to front: bay at back and mountains all around. The lighted rollercoaster was so pretty at dark. Mission Beach was in the middle of all my granddaughter wanted to see and a close drive to all.

Several evenings we ate along the boardwalk or walked about two blocks to Mission Blvd where there were many choices.
