About the Property

Sleeps up to 8. 2 Bedrooms. 2.5 Bathrooms.

This standout home features appealing and updated furnishings with a comfortable, eclectic beachy feel. Great location to walk to the beach, bay, and local restaurants.

815 Salem Court is no ordinary 2 bedroom Mission Beach vacation rental. With three levels and three bathrooms, the home can sleep up to 8, and guests can spread out in unique separate spaces on each level. The house is equipped with only basic cable and air channels, but it has its own Netflix account for unlimited movies and TV. We also offer high-speed wireless internet. A WiFi booster pushes the signal to all three levels of the house for fast connectivity throughout. Everything you need for a great Mission Beach vacation is here, from blow dryer to the beach cruisers and surfboards!

The third level master loft is warmly decorated in ocean blue with new white cottage-style furniture and a cal-king bed. It’s a bright, airy space with 7 skylights that bring in cool ocean breezes and lots of sun. Beautiful tropical hardwood flooring was installed last year, and feels great under your toes. Watch movies or surf the internet on the large, flat screen smart TV. Step into a large master bathroom with an enormous walk-in shower and lots of vanity space.


When you’re not at the beach, the second level is the main hangout space. Maple hardwood flooring and lots of windows give the entire level a light and open feeling. The kitchen has everything you’ll need, with plenty of dishware, cookware, kitchen gadgets, and utensils for creating memorable meals with friends and families. You’ll even find serving trays, vases for fresh flowers, candles, and votives for special evenings. Custom concrete counter tops extend from the cooking area to a large bar-height dining area where people always end up gathering.

The second floor also includes the living room, half-bath, and balcony. The centerpiece of the living is the large, cozy fireplace and adjacent entertainment center with large flat-screen smart TV, PS3 game console, and stereo with Bose sub woofer and surround-sound system. The premium quality American Leather Company comfort sleeper sofa pulls out to a full-size bed, allowing this room to double as an extra bedroom. Many of our guests tell us that this sleeper sofa is the best they have ever slept on. We agree!

Double French doors open to a semi-enclosed balcony where guests can enjoy sunny outdoor breakfasts or use the large gas grill.

The lower level features a private bedroom with a full / full bunk bed, flat screen TV and a beautiful custom bathroom with travertine stonework and frame-less shower door. This room is great for kids, who can watch movies from the bunk beds, or dig into the Lego bin and build away. Also on this level is the two-car garage with laundry center and beach toy / bike storage.

Outside the front door is a gated area with a hot water outdoor shower, perfect for rinsing off sand and salt after your day at the beach.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Garages in Mission Beach are smaller than other areas due to are small lot sizes and restricted space. 815 Salem Court has a two car garage of reasonable size. For many years, we parked a late model Toyota Landcruiser and Toyota 4Runner side by side in it, along with bikes, surfboards, and other toys. However, it was a tight squeeze and it took time to get used to.

Full-size pickups will have a problem parking in the garage, as will ANY lifted vehicle. There is a headroom of about 6' to enter the garage. Two cars, even small ones, may be a problem parked side by side along with beach cruisers and surfboards.

For these reasons, we cannot guarantee that your car or truck will fit in our garage. Please contact the owner for help in determining if your vehicle will fit, or to discuss alternate parking solutions.

Car: Not Necessary

You're here for the beach, of course, but there's lots of other things to do! When you stay at 815 Salem, you really don't need a car. Three of Mission Beach's best and favorite restaurants are are our neighbors: The Rubicon Deli, The Mission Cafe, and Saska's Sushi & Steakhouse. There are two friendly convenience stores just another block south, or you can jump on one of the cruisers and take a 5 minute ride to the huge Ralph's grocery store on Mission Blvd. and Grand Avenue.

Or ride that cruiser 5 minutes south and check out historic Belmont Park with the rides and the 'Dipper' roller coaster! Belmont also features a Mission Beach favorite - the Wavehouse, with its amazing freshwater surfing waves, cool sand bar, and music venue. Fishing trips can be organized out of nearby Seaforth Marina, and Seaworld is within bike riding distance also!

Or bike ride to Garnet Avenue in Pacific Beach to check out the hundreds of bars, restaurants, boutique shops, and crazy people watching.

One of the great things about Mission Beach is its close proximity to the airport. It's only about 8 miles away (15-20 minutes), which makes getting off the plane and getting your vacation started a snap.

If you want to leave the beach area, there are great adventures around San Diego, and even bigger adventures just beyond it. Mexico is only about 30 minutes away, and always worth a trip. It's safe and friendly if you just use a little common sense. Be sure to get insurance coverage for your car if you do go. San Diego's 'backcountry' lies just about an hour east of the city and features gorgeous mountains, canyons, and deserts. Disneyland is a VERY short drive from Mission Beach. Really about 75 minutes or so, as long as you miss traffic.

Or...park your car and stay at the beach. Relax!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: We are a family of surfers that has lived at 815 Salem Court for many years and have now chosen to share our beach house with guests from around the world.

Why the Owner Chose Mission Beach, San Diego, CA, USA:
Mission Beach is one of our favorite places in the world. You can surf here almost every single day of the year, and the waves do get very good, especially in the spring and fall. It's a friendly place that is a mix of long-time residences and happy vacationing families. Everything is walking distance from the house. One of our favorite things was to get home from work on Friday afternoon, park the cars, and never start the engines again until Monday morning. Walk and bike everywhere! When we purchased the house in 1998, it was quite run down. We have renovated every part of the home, and tried to make it as relaxing and comfortable as possible.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
You'll find almost everything you need in the house. We use it throughout the year, so it's really equipped with everything you need.
