About Miriam

After living in many areas of San Diego I realized in 1987, after vacationing on Mission Bay, that this is where I wanted my permanent home. I was born in Michigan, Bob in Alabama, and we both agree this is the perfect place to be!!

Miriam purchased this condo in 1987

Why Miriam chose Mission Bay

Beautiful property and fantastic location. We have been told by many of our guests that this is the best location at the beach and this is why they return to their home on the bay every year.

What makes this condo unique

We can enjoy the more quiet lifestyle of the Bay and just

walk across the street to the different world of the ocean.

Great choices and great fun. Best of both worlds

Amazing experience! Absolute perfection!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED everything! This was our first vacation out of state with our 2 young kiddos, and it was perfect!

Close to the airport, and easy to find. Plus, restaurants, grocery stores and big attractions all VERY close by. The unit was spacious, and well laid out. Miriam and Bob were amazing - very responsive and going out of their way to make our stay memorable. The rental has everything you could ask for - from kitchen supplies, to the pack and play with our 2 year old. Not to mention all of the beach towels, yard games, beach toys, beach chairs, and life jackets - even ones for the kids.

We spent hours soaking up the California sun and relaxing as a family. A truly wonderful experience. We hope to return next winter!

Wonderful Time

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful location and so many extras! A toy box with boogie boards, beach games, even life jackets. We had the downstairs condo that had a lawn and patio area with an outdoor table and chairs and dart board and yard games. Fixed a turkey dinner there and the kitchen was well equipped! Lots of towels and beach chairs and the owners go above and beyond. They even built us s wonderful fire pit on the beach. Enjoyed our stay so much!

Excellent location. A place both grandparents and children will love

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time at Mission Bay. Excellent location on bay and a short walk to beach too. Best of both worlds. Miriam and Bob are excellent hosts, very attentive and quick to respond to any questions or concerns. The entire family enjoyed the stay, young children and grandparents included. We'll miss the views of beautiful San Diego.

Wonderful Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

My family of four (me, my husband and teenage twins) recently stayed here for a week in August.

The location was GREAT! Right on a beautiful bay and right next to the Catamaran Resort, so we had access to great dining, water rentals, and other handy amenities.

The unit was well stocked with essentials, clean and cozy.

Our hosts, Miriam and Bob couldn't have been more accomodating and pleasant!

The unit was well laid out, with a complete kitchen with a refrigerator, stove and dishwasher, washer dryer, 2 1/2 bathrooms, outdoor BBQ and patio.

The location was right in the heart of the Mission Bay area, close to shopping, a grocery store, restaurants, bike rental shops, and so on.

We had a lovely time in this unit!
