About the property

One Bedroom! Sleeps 4

One level, ground floor with patio!

This is a great value and very close to the beach, just in from the boardwalk. You will love our Sand Castle which is located just off the Boardwalk, fifty steps to the sand! Three doors from the shore near the corner of Ocean Front Walk and Dover Court. Bright and sunny cottage style unit with big patio area and covered parking.

We have two of these cottages sitting side by side. See photos that show two of each room and click on map to see how close we are to the surf! Our Sandcastle is located at 722 and 724 Dover Court in South Mission just south of the Roller Coaster. Ground level, Single-level, and also has a great outdoor patio with table for four. Enjoy grilling and dining while just steps away from the deep blue sea, the boardwalk, sandy beach, and surf! Close to the action, yet quiet and a few doors away for a more peaceful stay.

Your kids can play in the ocean right in front of lifeguard tower #12 in summer months which is located right out on the beach where you will set up your day at the beach!

Smaller guests will enjoy the quality Sofa/Futon in living room, always a favorite place to sleep with the TV, DVD and VCR remotes in hand. Sofa sleeper is smaller scale and best for kids. Rent a larger unit if you have huge teens or adults.

Lots of windows give this Beach House character and a Beach Cottage feel.

Plenty of bike parking too. Breakfast Bar connects living and kitchen area. Great Location in Mellow South Mission! Not too close to the crowds, but close enough to be convenient and easy. Bike rentals, kayak rentals, sail boats rentals are all nearby. Amusement Park, Market and restaurants all within 2 to 3 block walk..

Carport parking is covered and semi-enclosed.

The washer and dryer will help you pack lightly. We have a clean laundry room just steps from your back door.

Planning a Family Reunion or Group Trip? Rent one or all of our Sandcastles! We offer two neighboring buildings with a total of five units to choose from ranging from one to three bedrooms. We can sleep 2 to 28 guests!!!

We also have a three bedroom unit available at VRBO #134781, #217948 and a two bedroom unit available at VRBO #53900 YEAR ROUND , if you need another unit for a reunion. All of our units sit side by side and total six bedrooms, so bring the entire gang and hang out as neighbors!

Check out all of the extra photos! Compare with others! This is the best value in Mission Beach! We would love to have you visit us! Owners or Crew are on site to greet you upon arrival to insure you have the best Summer vacation ever! We want you to come back again and again... and you will!

About Sharon Davis

We love the beach and love being so close! Just three doors to the boardwalk and sand!

Sharon Davis purchased this bungalow in 2000

Why Sharon Davis chose Mission Beach

We rented it ourselves for twenty years before we bought it from the retiring owners.

What makes this bungalow unique

The building has a side by side twin unit next door....VRBO 191454. It was originally a duplex and it now has a 3 bedroom unit above as well. Perfect for a family or group traveling together, but still desiring their own beach houses individually. Nice patio out front and covered parking at rear. Laundry room and plenty of bike parking also. See photos

Loved our visit.

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect cottage for enjoying Mission Beach, a peaceful setting and and a quick walk to the beach. It is south of Belmont Park and just a short walk to the park and restaurants. The beach area is not crowded at all. There is a bed for two but the sofa sleeps only one person.

In need of some updating

  • 3 of 5

The property was really a close walk to the boardwalk and beach which was great! The kitchen was well supplied and they are nice enough to leave guests cleaning supplies so they don’t have to bring anything.

The place is small though and was hardly enough room for two adults and an 11 month old. I wish the bedroom had been bigger or maybe a smaller bed so that furniture could fit in the room. We couldn’t fit the pack and play in the room and the only place it would fit was the living room; meaning we also had to go to bed at 8pm with the baby. The couch is awful! That needs to be replaced, there is a bar that you feel as soon as you sit down on it so you can’t even enjoy relaxing and reading a book or watching tv. The bathroom could use updating as well, but functions ok in tight quarters.

This place is fine for two people but I wouldn’t recommend four in there.

We did appreciate how helpful the owners were and responsive and they were great to work with!

The cottage was exactly as I expected from the advertisement, and it was perfect for us.

  • 4 of 5

Loved the location. Very convenient for traveling to all the sights we wanted to see in the San Diego area, and also to the airport. And when we weren't headed to any particular destination we enjoyed just hanging out there in Mission Beach. The bed was very comfortable, and the shelves and hooks in the bedroom were handy for storing clothing. Wi-fi was sketchy, though. Kept cutting in and out. Enjoyed the fire pit - ran out the propane tank on the second night, but just swapped out the one from the grill. Found everything clean and appreciated the attractive decor. I would stay there again, and would highly recommend it to anyone else who doesn't need but one bedroom.

Dirty and very noisy

  • 1 of 5

The floor in this place was filthy. The comments stated it was for 4 people, but is really for 2. The couch in the living room was so uncomfortable, you could hardly sleep. It is also located right in the airplane path, so you are sure to wake up very early. I must say the kitchen was very well equipped. Had almost everything imaginable.

Super practical, great location, cool owner

  • 5 of 5

This property delivered on everything it said it would. The propane fire pit and grills on the the patio came in handy. The WiFi and cable were useful for both work and entertainment. It's located incredibly close to the beach, as well as the shops and dining that the area offers. The owner met us when we checked in and was helpful and kind. I would definitely stay here again.
