Amazing location, well kept, great price, tight parking

  • 5 of 5

This was a terrific place to stay for our family of seven. Quarters are a little tight for that many, but there are enough beds, and the kids were tired enough by the end of the day that it wasn't a problem. The cottage is cute, well kept, and well decorated. The kitchen is well stocked.

It's a really short walk to the beach, so we made good use of the washing machine and dryer every day. The two full bathrooms were essential for as many people as we had. The beaches were nearly vacant in January; the weather and ocean were a little chilly, but the kids still preferred the beach to the zoo and the other activities we did. Sea World is right around the corner. The location is just about perfect.

Parking is really tight. The first night we were there someone was staying upstairs, and they were parked in the non-garage spot, so we had to back our minivan into one of the garage sections. We had to fold in the side mirrors because the garage was so narrow, and the nose of the van stuck out so we couldn't close the garage door. Thankfully, the people upstairs left the next day so we could park in the open parking spot; otherwise I would have been tempted not to drive anywhere, just because parking in the garage was such a pain. Smaller cars would have an easier time parking, I think, but when my father came to visit he still struggled to fit his mid-size car in the garage, and couldn't close the door.

Other than the parking, the cottage was delightful in every way.

Great beach house!

  • 5 of 5

A great beach house. Loved the outdoor patio. Nice kitchen. Lots of sleeping space if you don’t mind being cozy. Loved the high pressure shower. We were able to get to the beach in a minute and could hear the waves from the patio. Would definitely recommended

Not great

  • 3 of 5

The place is really close to the beach, the location is great( close to Belmont park) that is the only reason it got 3 stars. It did not feel it was very family friendly. When we got there on a Saturday night with my grandkids and there was quiet a few people out in the patios (which are super close), and I could smell of marijuana in the air coming from a house super close. The house across the way had a bunch of college age kids which was a bit off putting for a first impression. They were not loud and seemed friendly as they came and went so that was fine. The place is decorated cute but it seems like it has had a ton of wear and tear and no TLC. It’s clean (kinda). You can tell a service comes and clean, but the bathroom curtain had mildew and when you look closely you can see that at one point it had a plastic liner that was torn off. The rings on the curtain have a rust tint from absorbing rust from the shower rod. The 2 bedrooms are like caves. They get no sun and over look a wall or a staircase. The bunk beds are great for older kids that go to bed at the same time or later than you do but not good for little kids. Also make sure to show up with toilet paper. I got there and was not there 24 hours when we ran out of toilet paper. When I called to see where I might find more, I was told that this is a “vacation rental” and they do not supply anything other than a starting amount. I found that strange considering every other place that I have been has supplied toilet paper. The place also does not have central heating. It had 2 space heaters and one did not work. The weather in San Diego is great but in December it can get prettty cold at night. All in all ... I will return to the area but I will not be returning here.

Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

This home is the perfect place for children and adults alike. There where 8 of us and it worked like a charm. The perfect location on the beach too! A little market just a short walk away. Belmont Park, restaurants, shopping, renting bicycles, and just hanging out on the beach, all an arms length away. We all would recommend this rental, with no hesitation. Thank you for sharing this home with us!!

Fabulous location for families!

  • 4 of 5

Amazing location with a great patio for enjoying the sound of the waves and beautiful San Diego weather. House is outdated though and desperately needs new mattresses. The beds are very worn and have sink holes making a good night's sleep impossible. A little TLC with cleaning (mold on curtains and in bathrooms) and some new mattresses would make this place a GEM!

Great spot for families!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay, great location, great price. Overall the place just needs a deep clean....but it's a beach rental, so that's to be expected. The outdoor patio was great to relax on in the evenings. The pics make it look a little bigger than it is, but that's the case with any place on VRBO. Our son loved the tucked away bunks! We'd happily stay here again!

About Sharon and Curt Davis

Curt and Sharon Davis

Work hard! Play hard! We love the beach and decided this was a good combination of both!

Sharon and Curt Davis purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Sharon and Curt Davis chose Mission Beach

We prefer to get away from the busy boardwalk and be just a few doors in from the crowd for a more relaxed beach visit. We like the prices off the boardwalk as they are always a better value and we are not afraid to walk 200 feet to the beach.

What makes this cottage unique

Single level and the PATIO!!! We love how clean and easy this beach house is. We love the open kitchen design as I can watch the kids and cook easily. the patio is our outdoor room and we just love that the most. We have a back door that leads right into the kitchen from the parking spot. The same back door provides a short cut into the bath and saves on sandy feet issues. The full size laundry is right inside that same bath, so it makes things easier here. It also has the best, wide parking spot ever FOR OUR SUV!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Loved this place! We especially loved the big patio and new kitchen! Very convenient location, so close to the beach and sunsets.
