About the property


This modern Beach House is one of the largest of its kind in Mission Beach and comfortably accommodates up to 14 people. The property Is located in North Mission Beach and adjacent to Pacific Beach.

This Beach House is unique because it has 3 MASTER BEDROOMs of similar size with each having their own character and exceptional layout. This creates an atmosphere where all of your guests are treated in a similar and extraordinary way. These 3 Master Bedrooms are widely spaced out for the upmost privacy and comfort with each having their own attached full bathroom. Master Bedroom #1 is on the first floor, and Master Bedroom #2 and #3 are on the 3rd floor, each on opposite ends. None of the bedrooms share a common wall.

Two bedrooms also have 1 floor mattress, and 1 bedroom has 2, which could be used for children or adults. There are 2 sofa/beds in the great room, which could be used for adults or children.

The GREAT ROOM is located on the 2nd floor with a living and dining room on one side, a media room on the extreme other side, and both nicely separated with an upscale gourmet kitchen. It also has a conveniently located 1/2 bathroom.

This is a perfect property for multi-families since it provides space, comfort, and privacy for all.

The property is in one of best locations in Mission Beach/Pacific Beach, located in North Mission Beach Bay Side within 100 yards of Catamaran Spa and Resort. You are walking distance to many great local restaurants, clubs, and stores both within Mission Beach and Pacific Beach. You will enjoy sweeping Bay Beach, and City Views from the upstairs bedrooms. You are only steps away (100 feet) from the bay-side beach and 100 yards for the ocean-side beach. On the bay beach, there is a beach volley ball net and lots of warm sand along Sail bay. On the mission beach side there is everything you can want in a beach and more. Our Pacific sunsets are incredible and you will find yourself wanting to take a daily evening walk or bike cruise on the infamous Mission Beach Board Walk.

About Lily Geffroy

Lily and Michael own and rent out this property. We have lived in France, Mexico, Netherlands, and of course in the US. Lily is orginally from Mexico City, and Michael is a native of San Diego. They met on an airplane and fell madly in love. After living abroad for many years and having their children (Charles and Nathalie) born in Europe, they decided to return back to San Diego in 2010. We find San Diego has a lot to offer, great weather, friendly people, and a variety of different things to do.

We love spending family time in Mission Beach. We find Mission beach a great place to get away from everyday life, go swim at the beach, surf, fish, bike, volleyball, or just relax and hang out at the property. We also enjoy deep sea fishing, and we normally take our fishing boat out to sea when we stay at the property.

We hope you will enjoy staying at this property as much as we do. We will do everything possible to make your stay a memorable one.

Lily Geffroy purchased this house in 2010

What makes this house unique

We built this property from the ground up with the vacation renter in mind. The concept of this home is that everyone should have their own space and time so everyone can have a great stay and vacation, whether you are an adult, young adult, teenager, young child, or adults without children.

Each of the three bedrooms are spaced apart and do not share any common walls. This provides the upmost space and privacy for multi-family visitors. We provide two bedrooms on the top floor that are on opposite ends, and one bedroom on the ground level. All bedrooms are roughly the same size with same size double size beds and upgraded plush mattresses, and each offer some unique features that makes them all very attractive to your guests. You will not be fighting over who has the best bedroom because they are all nice and each offers something special. And of course, each bedroom has its own private full bath so you don't need to share.

On the center floor, you will enjoy a unique great room with two entertainment areas separated by a gourmet kitchen in the middle. On one end, you have the media room with a 50 inch; widescreen TV which can be enjoyed by everyone, and the other end, you have a quaint living and dining area with warm leather sofa, recliner, and fireplace. This is an ideal area for those that enjoy reading, sipping a fine wine, and just having great conversation.

The gourmet kitchen can be appreciated by those wanting to impress their guest with their culinary talents. The 6 burner Viking stove is the center piece of the kitchen. The kitchen comes with all of the equipment/flatware/utensils needed to cook a delicious meal. You will also enjoy the service bars on each side allowing you to conveniently serve your eager guests. The adjacent dining area seats 8 persons for those that enjoy sit-down meals.

Outdoors, there are multiple areas to enjoy by your guests and will allow them to take in the views and absorb the mission beach ambience.

Beautiful, well appointed home steps away from Mission Bay

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at Lily's home, as well as several others, after my son's wedding in San Diego. This is such a lovely home, so well-appointed and cared for. The three bedrooms, each with its own bath, provided plenty of space and privacy for the 3 couples who stayed here. Views from the upstairs were fantastic, and having the kitchen/great room on its own floor worked really well. It's about 100 feet from the gate to the sand, perfect location at the north end of mission bay. Many thanks to Lily, who was very helpful and gracious from the day we booked, throughout our stay. I would definitely recommend this home. We will be back!

1st time doing VRBO and staying on Mission Bay private. House was modern and comfy. Great time!

  • 5 of 5

Any questions or issues, Lily the owner took care of us. This is a great place for 3 families and this part of MB is very quiet and the Bay is clean for kids to play in. The water pressure in the house seemed a bit low and the

private ground floor suite was kind of spartan of furniture,

Otherwise we felt like we were

staying in Hawaii. We plan on returning to “Island Style” next year.

Perfect for a weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

This location is perfect for a weekend getaway with a group of friends. Within walking distance to mission beach boardwalk, the bay and pb! There really wasn't a need for us to rent a car! The home was charming and modern all wrapped in one. Everyone had a great, comfortable stay! The communication between myself and the owner was impeccable. A must try!

One of kind, great location

  • 5 of 5

We recently shared this wonderful property with two other families and enjoyed it very much. We've stayed at different Mission Beach properties over the years and this by far is the best overall experience: Great location, great property, great host.

First of all. the location near the Catamaran hotel is awesome. This is on the northern side of Mission beach where there's less overall traffic, less airplanes overhead, and over all less noise than other areas of Mission Beach/Bay. The bay side beach is only about 100 feet from the property and it's a great place to hang out on the sand. We played volleyball every day and also sun bathed there. When we got tired of the bay life, we would take the beach chairs over the beach side and enjoy the beach life, spending time in waves, on the sand, and cruising the boardwalk. This is California at its best.

And when we were finally got tired of the outdoors, we had a incredible place to relax and spend time hanging out with our friends. The property is well layout giving privacy and space to the three families. We didn't feel like we were sharing too much since each bedroom has their own full bath and each room is nicely separated. And the second floor is a spaciously laid out with lots of common area (living room, dining room , powder room, media room, separated by a modern kitchen). The beds are very clean and comfortable, and each room has one or two premium floor mattresses. The property has 3 parking spaces which is a rarity for Mission Beach. Once you park your cars, you don't need to drive since every thing (grocery store, restaurants, bike rental shop, shops, aquatic rentals) are within walking distance.

Our host, Lili, was great. She always responded quickly to any of our questions or requests.

We are looking forward to returning soon and to again enjoy this property. We highly recommend it.

Perfect location, spacious, beautiful and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

2017 was our 4th year to rent this beautiful unit! There was plenty of room for the 12 of us, 3 1/2 baths are a PLUS, with careful parking( easy once you get the routine down) 3 normal sized cars may be parked onsite! If you are at all familiar with Mission Beach, this is special. Wonderful kitchen with an easy flow, plenty of dishes and cooking needs. Literally 15 seconds to the bay to watch Sea World fireworks, Catamaran activities and bay walk. 5 min easy walk to the beach! So close to Ralph's and "Taco de Playa". One of our favorite go to takeout! Being on the bay side it is quite, and we feel safe. The owner is very responsive and is a joy to work with. There are boggie boards, beach towels (plentiful), beach chairs, makes it very easy to quickly get to relaxing! Our grandkids have basically "grown up" staying here every year! They call it " our beachouse"😊?👍? we love this place and look forward to more memories being made here.
