Why Maio chose Mission Beach
All it took was one foot inside the HOUSE OF THE YEAR for me to say 'I WILL BUY IT AT YOUR ASKING PRICE!' It truly has been an incredible experience owning the 'The House of the Year' hosting the many celebrities and Presidents of countries. From Hollywood's biggest stars to local San Diego residents - the house has seen it all! It's an updated Miami Vice Tony Montana sleek retreat. Everything from the large automated home theater to the 9'x8' Carrera white marble sunken tub - this property has every bell and whistle. Multiple decks on the boardwalk with 12' high sliding glass panels and 360 degree roof top elegance. Rolling BBQ, rolling bar, wet bars, multiple high def PLASMA & LCD TV's, $200,000 stereo & smart home equipment, sunken living room pit, granite dance floor, modern high end kitchen, electronic smart home lighting, shades, electronics, and more! Most jaws hit the ground when they first enter this property! Nothing compares! Two huge rare GEO's are in the living room area - large garage for two luxury vehicles, everything is automated! The house has only seen good times, it's perfect for a family event or reunion. A place to bring the grand kids watching them from the beautiful bayside deck. Or reunite with your friends enjoying the playground right in front of you. We know how to handle our guests! Call me anytime to go over the many private details about this remarkable property!

Great location, great house, great host.
We spent a week at this very unique property and it was perfect for our family. We had plenty of space, every imaginable technology (all of which worked easily and had great instructions for). The setting, looking out on the bay is beautiful and we sat every evening on the rooftop deck to enjoy the amazing sunsets. It’s also close to everything and easy to access. Finally, Maurice could not have been more friendly or helpful - he was available at all times to answer questions about the house, make restaurant recommendations, and explain options on what to do while in San Diego. We would go back gladly at any time.
Really great holiday
This is a really nice property on the bay - very quiet and very nice home - lots of oohs and aahs from passers by.
Stayed for a week in this stunning bay front property. We stay on the bay in Mission Beach every year, but this place takes the cake. The floor to ceiling bay front windows slide aside to open the entire place up. The kitchen and dinette are 1/2 floor above the living room and share the same great view. Two bedrooms and another bed in the den worked out well for us this year. The master bedroom overlooks the bay as well with great sunrises to start the day.
Walking distance to watercraft/bike rentals and taquerillas. Maurice was informative and helpful. He rightly takes pride in this great property and wanted to make sure we were happy. If you are in the southland and want a waterfront vacation - this is it.
Great house. Great for family and small dog. Perfect location.
We stayed for a week in late July. Weather was great. Location is great. On the quiet bay side, with enough activity during the day, but quiet at night.
House was amazing. Main room with fireplace is great for getting everyone together. We slept 5 very comfortably. We brought our small puppy, who slept in a crate. Fortunately because of the floor plan the small dog was comfortable too.
Be aware that this is modern design so it may be missing things like towel racks and handrails. Lots of high tech so you may need to read the provided instruction manual to figure out how things work.
Overall a unique experience.
Vacation of a lifetime!!!
There aren't enough words to adequately describe how phenomenal this house is! I came with a large group of girls to celebrate a 30th birthday, and from the moment we walked in the door we were blown away by the amazing layout, décor, comfort, spaciousness, and beauty of the place. The house is incredibly modern and has every amenity imaginable! We were 3 steps from the sand and felt like rockstars....then we found out that a bunch of celebrities had actually stayed at the house! Maurice and Emily were so sweet and responsive, and catered to our every need, and my friend said that it was the best b-day she's ever had. I definitely recommend this house, and we already booked it again for later in the summer!
Fabulous Weekend Getaway!
Fantastic place for a weekend getaway or longer stay. I have always liked the bayside better than beachfront because its quieter and there is less boardwalk rift-raft especially on the weekend. Also, if you have a dog, I was able to let him swim and run off-leash w/o problems (there is also a poop bag station one house down). The patio is gated and there is a hose to wash off dog prior to entering home. We had numerous people stopping and telling us how fabulous our place was over the weekend. Turn on the "party mode" lighting, surround sound stereo and people thought we had a $20 cover charge! I would definitely come back. Watching the Sea World fireworks from the roof top hot top was the highlight of the trip. The owner Maurice was more than willing to answer our numerous questions at anytime. The only downside- the stairs (and master shower) might be a bit tough for older folks or kids and the sharp granite corners in the sunken living room could be hazardous to small children.
