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.

Please Note:

We do not rent this property to those under 25 years of age and we strictly control the total number of occupants in the property during the entire stay.

This home is located in a high-density neighborhood and is only suitable for quieter groups. Our rental agreement includes a "quiet time" policy regarding excessive noise, occupancy and/or parties.

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.

The perfect get-away!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this Island Style Beach House. We traveled with another family. In all, there were 4 adults and 6 kids, ranging from 5-13, in the house. There was plenty of room for everyone.

We alternated between the more adventurous ocean side and the quieter beach along the bay. We rode boogie boards in the waves and tried the stand-up paddle boards in the bay. We rented wet suits for the kids. It was easy to do and reasonably priced. But, bring them if you have them. We rode scooters and roller blades along the bay. It was a lot of fun.

We brought food for breakfast and lunch. While the kids ate cereal in the morning, the adults walked down the street to a coffee shop. We also walked to dinner and to shopping. (The Sketchers outlet just down the street, as well as the grocery store, came in handy.) In fact, once we parked our car when we arrived, we didn’t get back in it until it was time to leave.

The house was well furnished...plenty of kitchen utensils and the decor was nice. Lots of stairs though, which didn’t bother us, but I imagine could hinder some.

There is only room for two cars. The communication with the owner was fantastic! All-in-all, we all agreed that it was the perfect 3 day get away!

Couldn't have been happier!

  • 5 of 5

The house is in the perfect location, only steps from the beach. Three minute walk to the bar and restaurant at the nearby resort, bike, skateboard, etc rentals. We could easily walk to the beaches on each side of the peninsula and the restaurants, bars, and retail shops. We had my mom, husband, in-laws, and three kids (10, 7, and 5) and could walk everywhere. Parking is tight, so if you have a minivan or larger it will be difficult to get in and out but you don't need a vehicle to get anywhere in the near vicinity. Very comfortable, plenty of room for my family of 8. Comfortable beds, nice linens, very clean. I'll be back!

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!
