About the property

1 bedroom, 1 bath, sleeps 4

The surfers call this the log cabin of South Mission Beach. This cozy home on a quiet courtyard has high ceilings and knotty-pine walls. It is immaculate and has all you need for an excellent vacation getaway, including: beach towels, sand chairs, flat-screen TV's, bikes, and a fully outfitted kitchen. Our home is upstairs allowing you to enjoy all the beach life, and then retreating to your secure upstairs home with a patio which is well furnished and has a built-in gas bar-b-q. One parking spot in the garage is your's, along with a garage door opener. Head back home with clean clothes, there's a washer and dryer in the garage for our guests use. Mission Beach is a perfect location for San Diego's varied water activities: surfing, boogie boarding, paddle boarding, kayaking, and if you're up for it jet-pak hijinks. Mission Beach is also a perfect spring-board for all the other activities San Diego has to offer: golfing, shopping, Navy ship tours, Old Town, Balboa Park, the San Diego Zoo, and Sea World.

About Judi Nodurft and April Conner

My sister and I have been beach lovers all our lives. We are native San Diegans, and live near by.

Judi Nodurft and April Conner purchased this house in 1986

Why Judi Nodurft and April Conner chose Mission Beach

We were immediately drawn to the charm of this property. It's not like all the others, for a beach home, it has a uniquely mountain feel.

What makes this house unique

We love that the house gives you the feeling of being away from it all. It's our little piece of heaven. Our courtyard is quiet, and gives easy, quick walking access to the beach and bay. Sitting on the deck lets you watch all the Mission Beach life, but also provides quiet privacy.

Cozy cabin with great location!

  • 5 of 5

We just loved staying at this cozy and spacious home. The location couldn’t have been better and the home has everything you need to make yourself at home. April was very responsive to any questions and flexible for checking in and out. Loved the great deck and secure garage space. A short walk or bike to the beach and restaurants They have thought of everything. We will be back!!

Perfect beach holiday highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

Great location close to the beach, Belmont Park and Seaworld. Spacious, clean and well equipped apartment, The Owners were great they did everything to help us. We felt at home immediately. I Was initially put off from booking this apartment from previous reviews regarding plane noise, this didn’t effect our sleep. Glad we went ahead and booked we had the most amazing holiday here and we can’t wait to return.

Awsome cozy and spacious place on the south end of mission beach. Close to bay and ocean!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place! Owners Judi and April are extremely nice and accommodating. Lots of beach accessories and bikes in their garage which easily fits a full size SUV. This place is clean and there is a door from bedroom to the huge patio deck as well as a door to patio from living room—perfect for adults with kids as the kids can go to patio deck without going through bedroom. Living room is huge and can easily fit large air mattress in addition to the roll out couch. This was by far the best place we have stayed on Sourh Mission Beach and we been coming here 10 years. Owners super nice and came and changed light bulb and we mentioned there was not a glass bowl to heat up frozen food in microwave and next day they bought one and dropped off. If you looking for a nice quaint place in great location with owners who are super nice and accommodative then this is the place. It does not have a view of the bay or ocean and is located right on mission Blvd but location is great as you can walk to bay in 1-2 minutes or less! Ocean is just across the street 3-5 minute walk. Market for groceries or beverages about 5 minute walk. Deck has nice grill and lots of table room and nice comfortable chairs!!

Enjoyed our stay. Great location between bay and ocean. Calm and sheltered from busy frenetic trafic

  • 3 of 5

Roomy nice outdoor seating, comfortable bed. Garage was a great feature - not all property and have this feature. The bicycles in the garage worked great for us and were adjustable using a tool that was in the drawer upstairs. Gas grill on patio very clean and worked well. Temperature very comfortable inside during our January stay. Owners very responsive and attentive.

It was great!

  • 5 of 5

The property was just off the beach both ocean and bayside with easy access to both. It was more private on the deck as there weren't people biking or running right by. The grill and kitchen allowed breakfast in and a few dinners to save on expenses. It included a few extras like 2 SUPs which was nice to use whenever we wanted and there were two beach bikes that we used. They need a bit of maintenance and yet still worked! The bike path (really multi-use) was awesome for those who really like to bike for a long time. The owners were very responsive and friendly. When we needed something during the stay (just once), the response time was immediate. They also kept us updated on anything related to the property prior to our stay. We'd go back!

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure having you Jenn. Thanks for letting us know that the bikes are suffering from some wear! Off right now to pick them up and take them to the bike shop for either repair or replacing. Look forward to you staying again!!!

Everything you need for a nice stay

  • 4 of 5

The property was clean, clean, clean! Nicely set up with everything you will need. Great open floor plan, large closets, laundry in the garage and the bed was comfy. Owners are on board and answer any questions you may have quickly. The outdoor deck is nice for BBQing and relaxing. We used the bikes, sand toys and the paddle boards. Having the choice to relax at the ocean or bay beaches was an added plus. There is a park close by along with the Mission Beach boardwalk. Parking is tight in this area, however, not impossible. The garage will house larger vehicles. All in all a good stay!

South Mission Beach
Car: recommended

South Mission Beach is convenient to downtown San Diego, Old Town, Balboa Park, Naval and Maritime Museums, as well as the best bike riding and walking any where. Enjoy the day on the wide sandy beach or bay, and then spend the afternoon strolling and shopping in La Jolla; to say nothing of terrific restaurants with fabulous views of the Pacific. Indian Gaming/Casinos are within a 1/2 hour/45 minute drive.
