About the property

Over the boardwalk...We'll be havin' some fun...Views of Ocean & Bay

Penthouse Condo in Mission Beach with whitewater & blue water views of the Ocean and views of Mission Bay & the downtown San Diego skyline. Enjoy Sea World Fireworks while sitting on your private balcony during the summer. Smell the salt air, hear the sound of the waves, touch the cool ocean breeze and feel yourself relax! This will be a memorable vacation stay. Your fun beach condo is just steps to the Sand - approximately 50. This building is one building back from the Pacific Ocean in a superb central location in Mission Beach. There is a secure parking garage with a dedicated space for the unit.

From this condo you can walk or ride your bike along the 3 mile long boardwalk. Go 1/2 mile north to Pacific Beach which has funky cool shops, restaurants & bars, or a little over a mile south to Belmont Park where you can try your surfing skills on the FlowBarrel wave machine - the only one in the US! You can also ride the Giant Dipper roller coaster, play laser tag, have fun in the Arcade, play mini golf, climb the rock wall, or navigate the sky ropes course. Whew! After a full day, relax and enjoy a delicious dinner at Draft where the food is amazing and the surf side restaurant has 69 beers on tap. Or check out the Wavehouse with outdoor tiki bars, fire pits, cabanas and tropical palms. Can you say 'Southern California?' Totally dude!

Across Mission Blvd is Mission Bay where you can rent a sailboat, stand up paddle board, or water powered jetpack - yes, really, George Jetson! Enjoy a peaceful bayside picnic, barbecue or bonfire. Just 2 miles away on Mission Bay, you can book a sport fishing trip, or a whale watching excursion in the winter.

With the average number of 300 sunny days, San Diego is the perfect vacation spot. The weather is typically delightful year round. Winters are typically mild with average high temperatures of 66-70 degrees and lows of 50–56 degrees. Summers are usually mild as well with average highs in the upper 70's and average lows in the low to upper 60's.

While in San Diego, you may not want to leave your penthouse oasis, but there are other beautiful must-see beach communities within driving distance such as La Jolla and Coronado Island, home of the famous Hotel Del Coronado. Our world class famous San Diego zoo & Balboa Park are approximately 20 minutes by car & Sea World is approximately 10 minutes via car. Drive downtown San Diego - approximately 20 minutes, and check out the Gas Lamp Quarter where restaurant options abound. The San Diego Padres play at Petco Park downtown. There are over 90 golf courses in the area; in fact, Golf Digest named San Diego one of the Top 50 golf destinations in the world. Los Angeles is 90 miles north, and driving to Palm Springs takes about 2.5 - 3 hours.

Come enjoy Mission Beach and San Diego. You won't want to leave!

About Chris Nielson

I moved to San Diego in 1984 to escape the cold Illinois winters & I've never looked back! San Diego has so much to offer. I appreciate it more every year. I am a licensed Real Estate Agent with an intricate attention to detail and extensive knowledge of many of San Diego’s residential communities. Ask me about my favorite city - America's Finest!

I love to downhill ski, hike, bike on the Boardwalk and hang out in Mission Beach & Pacific Beach. You will love our So Cal lifestyle!

Chris Nielson purchased this condo in 2014

Why Chris Nielson chose San Diego County

This property is in the best location in Mission Beach close to Pacific Beach, the Bay, and South Mission Beach. It has one secure parking place - very important in this popular beach community where parking is sometimes scarce. It has great views of the Ocean and Bay at an economical price.

Guestbook comments from the owner

From the previous owner's website - 5 star review -

Excellent location, within walking distance to shopping, eateries, grocery stores, public transportation & amusement park. Onsite secure parking can't be beat. Always a soft, cool breeze. Unit is always clean & comfortable.

Nice little Condo in Mission Beach

  • 3 of 5

The best thing about this condo is the position, not right on the boardwalk so away from the noise but 2 seconds walk to the beach or across the road from the bay.

Also its across the road from Better Buzz Coffee which if you are a coffee lover like me is fantastic.

The condo is quite old but is done up really nicely. Shower/toilet room is very old but fine. The kitchen has all the things you need and there are plenty of towels including beach towels which is great for international travellers.

Bed was ok, bit soft for me but everyone is different when it comes to beds and even though it was very hot and humid you only needs the fans on to get cool.

I didnt really use the balcony it is really small and there is now a high bar table and two stools instead of chairs.

Owner's Response: Thank you for booking my condo. I’m sorry to learn you didn't love my condo as much as the other reviewers. It looks exactly like the photos and yes the building and unit are a little older.  If I would have known you were looking for something with a modern look and feel, I would have directed you to reexamine the pictures and look elsewhere. The high table & chairs on the balcony allow you to see over the railing & I've had several guests that have stayed at the unit before state they love it. While I understand you may have confused my unit with the modern unit you thought you were booking, it also is a surprise that you neglected to note in your comments how this owner bent over backwards to have the room cleaned earlier in order to accommodate your request to check in 6 hours prior to the stated check in time at no additional charge.

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

This condo was perfect for our stay. It was close to the beach, bay and restaurants. I liked having the added security of a gated garage for our bikes. The condo was clean and had a good view of both the ocean and the bay. Would definitely consider booking again. Chris was easy to work with and responded to all inquiries quickly.

Reat Location for Fun in San Diego and Mission Beach!

  • 4 of 5

We visited San Diego to see our son. We wanted to be near the beach and found the Fun Beach Condo. It was exactly as described, fun, beach kitschy, and only 50 feet from the beach. The decor is right out of a Beach Boys song. We were in the middle of everything fun in Mission Beach.

The bed was extremely comfortable, the kitchen was amply provided with all needed appliances. It was a very clean and comfortable condo. We even got to watch the 4th of July fireworks from our balcony.

The owner was very accommodating and friendly. I would recommend this property to anyone looking for fun in the San Diego/ Beach areas!

Great location and condo

  • 5 of 5

Best things about this property: (1) location is less than a half block to the boardwalk & beach plus plenty of restaurants and shops within walking distance. (2) parking is gated under the complex, and the reserved spot is big enough for a SUV. (3) condo is very clean and comfortable with enough space to store all your things including space to store luggage out of the way in the closet.

In addition, the complex was very quiet, which was unexpected due to proximity to boardwalk and restaurants/bars. We ate out and used the microwave but there were nice appliances and plenty of kitchen supplies for cooking along with condiments, etc.

We had a great stay spending most of our time on the beach and soaking up the sun. Wish we stayed longer!!
