About the property

Beach Studio - Beach Front

The Candelore Family is happy to offer a studio apartment with Boardwalk Patio privileges. The studio has a full kitchen area with table and chairs. The bathroom has a shower/tub combination. Note that the apartment is not directly on the beach and does not have a direct view to the ocean. With the front door open, there is an oblique view to the boardwalk, and the main living area side window has a distant view to the ocean. The shared patio is on the boardwalk, but not the unit itself. The unit is upstairs towards the rear of the property. The upstairs is light and bright and the window blinds may be left open as it is difficult for people to see in.

PLEASE READ AND AGREE BEFORE INQUIRING: The unit is suitable for 2 adults (a couple possibly with one infant or small child - 5 years old or younger). There is no access to the patio for non-guests. Due to the small shared area of the patio available to the studio, no one can be invited to come to the patio.

Mission Beach studio apartment. This unit may be rented in conjunction with an oceanfront beach house. See VRBO listing 455128.

There is a barbecue that may be used with the unit that is located in the common courtyard area.

Consider staying during off-peak season times.

If families want to get together to book for 4 weeks at a time, then the city enforced Transient Occupancy Tax (TOT) of 10.5% will be refunded to you.

There is parking for 1 SUV.

About Brant Candelore for Candelore Properties LLC

The studio has only recently become available.

The house and 3 studio units were built by my grandfather and has been in the family for over 70 years - 3 generations! We are looking to maintain the house as family friendly vacation rental with repeat guests. Many have spoken to and delt with Mildred over the years. Now, Brant is helping with the management.

We speak French and Spanish with some fluency. International guests are welcome.

Why Brant Candelore for Candelore Properties LLC chose Mission Beach

We have enjoyed spending family time here over the years. We hope that you will have many memorable times here as well! Mission Beach has the most accessible and best beach in all of San Diego. It is 4 1/2 miles long! There is an ocean as well as bay side. The boardwalk is terrific for walking, skating or biking. Did you know that surf fishing is pretty good right out-front of the house?

What makes this studio unique

PATIO: Guests can enjoy sitting on a patio that fronts to the boardwalk and ocean. Many rental units in the price range do not have this!

PARKING: Since the property is at El Carmel, it is strategically located to take advantage of on and off-street parking. El Carmel point offers extra off-street parking where cars may be parked overnight. The studio has 1 off-street parking for a smaller vehicle right off the alley. Please see parking picture. We are centrally located - walking distance to Belmont Amusement Park (to the South) and Crystal Pier (to the North).

VIEWS FROM STUDIO: The unit has 5 windows - one in the bathroom, 2 in the kitchen, and 2 in the main living area. The bathroom window and one of the kitchen windows faces to the rear (toward Mission Bay) and does not really offer any type of water view, but they higher up and overlook the community. The ocean views from the living area side window and the kitchen side window are more distant. The main living area window towards the ocean looks over the courtyard and the roof of the front house. With the door open, there is a more distant side view to ocean. As the unit is upstairs ... you may open the blinds and no one can see in. With the windows open, there are nice cross breezes.

Great spot at an afordable price

  • 5 of 5

The property is as described; you are not going to see the ocean from inside but it is right outside your door and can't beat sitting out on the patio enjoying it all. Bret was easy to work with and had everything go smoothly. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom and kitchen were adequately supplied. I would definitely stay there again.

We loved our stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the Beach Studio. It was quiet and gave us easy access to the beach. We went for a walk every morning and evening and thoroughly loved the setting. This location provided us with easy access to everything we wanted being in San Diego.

The property contact, Brant, gets 6 stars as he was fantastic to work with. Any time I contacted him, his response was immediate. He really does a great job.
