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 Mission Beach

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.

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.

Couldn't have found a better spot!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 6 nights with our two teenage kids and we couldn't have found a better spot. The sleeping arrangements were tight for the kids, but they're teenagers and we certainly knew what we'd be getting, and it worked out nicely for 6 nights. As for the actual condo, I found everything I needed in the kitchen for cooking and it was nice that there were condiments and basic cooking necessities there for our use. The bed in the bedroom was certainly comfortable enough and there was plenty of room for our needs. It was nice being on the third floor with a lanai where we could sit and enjoy a beverage at night while looking over the Mission Beach hustle and bustle, plus the view of the ocean was an added bonus. The BBQ on the lanai was also a nice bonus.

Chris was so easy to deal with, answering any questions I had in a very timely manner. The building was very nice in that the secure garage as absolutely fantastic, making us feel safe, plus making it incredibly easy to get in and out as much as we wanted with the garage door remote. The beach is so close, also being a huge bonus as we didn't have to fight the crowds to get there and find parking.

If we come to San Diego again we will be certain to look this place up again! Thanks for a great place to stay!

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved Mission Beach. The condo was a perfect location. Loved the 3rd floor views of the beach and bay. It worked well for 2 adults and 2 kids, they slept on the pullout in the living room. The building was very secure and safe. Chris was very accommodating and the condo had all the essentials. Would recommend!!

Best Location

  • 5 of 5

It is a beautiful location. We were there for July 4th and could see several firework shows from the balcony. The sound of the waves was soothing. There could sometimes be noise from parties in the area, but it's part of a beach community. I would recommend staying here.
