You will return year after year for 'an awesome-sauce (beach house) is something that is more awesome than awesome! ...' (urbandictionary). Hopeful to see you and your family at the beach, very soon! - Behzad & family

We came to California from Michigan in November to escape the bitter cold, ice, and snow this time of the year. My family and i looked forward to spending some leisure time at the beaches in San Diego. This was one of the better choices we had made in terms of the price, proximity to the airport and the various options available to us for entertainment, i.e. beautiful sunsets, beaches, surfing, jogging, shopping, fine dinning, night life and music. One of our favorite things to do while at the mission beach was having breakfast on the deck in the morning, then playing on the beach area in front of the house where we relaxed under the sun most of the day. While we have visited many luxurious resorts in the USA, Mexico, Bahamas, and Europe in the past, by far, this was the most hassle-free and affordable experience. As a party of six, we were able to split the rental cost and many responsibilities.

We would highly recommend this awesome place and vacation house to anyone looking for a perfect family reunion, anniversary or a get-away experience for a long weekend with a spouse or family and friends. We give it our thumbs-up and will be back soon!

Why Behzad Aalaei chose San Diego County

Description from the previous owner

There are only 2 units in this luxury oceanfront building called the Casa de la Playa (Beach House). The units can be rented together for a total of 4 bdr 4 ba sleeping 15 or separately as a 2 bdr 2 ba unit. In this way, you have the possibility of an entire building for your family vacation.

To begin, the Pacific Penthouse is lovely: 2 oceanfront balconies, a shared downstairs oceanfront patio with built-in gas barbecue, 12 foot ceilings in parts, 4 sky lights, 4 decorative leaded glass windows (one of humming birds, one of fish and two of ocean scenes), Italian tile throughout, 3 flat screen TVs connected to cable and one VCR, very special bathrooms (master with both a whirlpool tub and a separate shower with his and her shower heads), wireless high speed internet access, large master bedroom (14 feet by 17 feet), all linens and towels (beach towels too), an in-unit washer and dryer, a private 2 car garage with in tandem parking for two cars, a very well-equipped kitchen (microwave, dishwasher, new granite countertops, and new cabinetry in the kitchen, a disposal, coffee grinder, etc.), and (my favorite) a dining area surrounded by nearly 180 degrees of glass with panoramic views so that it is like being outside inside.

The lower unit, called the Ocean View Getaway, is also special and was our home for 12 years. It has 1 oceanfront balcony, a completely redone kitchen featuring granite countertops and cabinets and new stainless steel appliances, a large master bedroom of about 14 by 17 feet, a magnificent master bath with a large soaking tub (large enough for at least 2 people), a separate shower with his and her shower heads, a balcony off the master and a nice second bath with white and cobalt blue tile.

What makes this house unique

The furniture is also new and features two black leather euro loungersand a marvelous italian glass top dining table from lawrence furniture surrounded by plexiglass chairs, and 3 tvs connected to cable, high speed internet access, all linens and towels, an in-unit washer and dryer, a private 2 car garage with in tandem parking for two cars, a very well-equipped kitchen (microwave, dishwasher, disposal, coffee grinder).

We have a very child friendly environment with covers on all the unused electric outlets, a high chair, beach toys (pails, shovels, balls, frisbees), and children's books (dr. Seuss) and some videos.

By the by, each unit is 1300 square feet for a total of 2600 sq feet of living space (this is 'large' for an oceanfront unit). Each unit and is 2 bedroom (cal king size bed in master and two twins beds in the other bedroom), 2 bath, sleeping 8. We are environmentally conscious and use no toxic pesticides or harsh cleaning chemicals and in fact the downstairs twin beds are organic cotton.

Our guests tell me that both unis are much nicer than the pictures suggest because the pictures do not capture the spaciousness, light and airy feeling.

The address of the casa de la playa is 2645/47 ocean front walk and it is located in south mission beach, well south of belmont park. North mission is a more crowded. Year-round residents tend to live in south mission.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed here for a week. The house was more than perfect. We enjoyed our stay, and did not have anything to worry about.

We got our deposit back in full.

Highly recommend this for a safe, fun vacation.

Wonderful beach house

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed at this beautiful beach house. We had a large group but everyone was very comfortable, enjoyed themselves and the beach. The house is in an ideal location on the beach path with volleyball courts right outside the patio. We loved walking the path along the beach to the bars and restaurants very close by. There are rules for the house that are clear and posted, and as long as you follow those and be respectful of the neighbors especially after 9pm, you'll have no concerns. It is in the quiet end of Mission Beach, so those looking to blare loud music and have non stop parties like they're on spring break in Cabo should look elsewhere. I would absolutely stay here again and recommend this to friends/family.

Comfortable House and Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

The House (4/5 stars):

We had a group of 14 adults and managed to all sleep pretty comfortably. A number of us had to sleep on leather couches, which were very easy to convert to a bed. The only problem was that, since it's leather, your skin can get pretty sticky during the course of the night especially if the weather is warm. The backyard grill was pretty dirty and we elected not to use the grill, which was a bit disappointing for us. However, the fact that there were two complexes each with their own full kitchen made it very easy to manage meals for our entire group. As a whole, the property and it's furniture/kitchenware isn't all brand new and modern, but it's well kept that we all felt very comfortable for the weekend.

The Location (5/5 stars):

This is what completely sold us. It's on the very southern tip of Mission Beach, so even though the location is very lively and there's a great amount of people around during the day, it never felt busy or over crowded. The backyard is literally connected to the beach. There's a full court for basketball and about 8-9 Volleyball courts right outside the backyard, so it's very easy to play and take a break back at the property. There's also a number of fire pits close by which you can have nightly bonfires in (though if you want to reserve one for your group I suggest setting up lounge chairs in the early afternoon). We chatted with the next door neighbors for a bit during the weekend and they were all very nice and greeted us to have a great weekend. The area is close by towards the main areas of Mission Beach, as well. It's a decent walk but a very short Uber/Taxi drive away.

The Owner/Property Manager (5/5 stars):

He was very responsive with my emails and texts leading up to our stay. He was informative and had simple instructions to check in and check out. They let us know in advance that some of the neighbors do complain about noise, so we made sure to keep things inside and decently quiet during the night.

Overall it was a great weekend and I'll be suggesting this property to others who are looking for a San Diego beach house.

Owner's Response: Dear guests: As hosts we very much appreciate honest feedback and constructive criticism from our guests. This is a sure way to improve our accommodations to ensure that returning guests get exactly what they expect. On one hand tolerant guests who do not call us about every single trivial issue are wonderful but serious concerns such as those Mr.Justin J had warranted a call to owners. there are sheets for the leather futons to keep guests comfortable i agree that the grill appears pretty discusting all covered with cooking greese but it is a necessity to keep a grilll so close to the ocean. the obe before this one cleaned regurarly was covered with rusted after 3 months and completly fell appart after one year. I guess we could leave a bigger note about the bedding arrangements and a separate note regarding the grill there is a note

best vacation rental ever

  • 5 of 5

We used vrbo alot. This is the first house that I could not find anything to complain about.

We were right at the beach and played beach vollyball every day. The house was super clean. The dishes were like brand new.All Tv's were working. The garage was large enough for our 3 cars. We had a great time in patio, used BBQ Grill alot.

My husband liked the master bedroom. It was cozy and he did not have any back pain like he had at home.

We recommend this property to everyone.

We got our deposit back in full within 10 days.

The owners called us twice and asked if everything was ok. We will go back again.

Beware, very poor experience

  • 1 of 5

Renters beware!!The images provided are not an accurate or honest representation of this unit. Our group was greatly disappointed when we walked in for a number of reasons.

Upon arrival, three of the guests spent 45 minutes washing down the outdoor furniture to bring it to a state of use. The outdoor grill was so dirty it would be health hazard to utilize. The guesthouse was rented to 12 people and there were enough blankets for maybe 10. One guest had to use an old moving blanket that we found in a cupboard. Decorative throw cushions were used as pillows. The listing advertises as being able to accommodate up to 18 guests but there is no way more than 10-12 can sleep here comfortably.

There was a note on the master Jacuzzi stating not to touch the spout or there could be major costs incurred in water damage. To avoid any risk, we were forced to not use the advertised Jacuzzi tub.

The glassware was dirty, there were no dishtowels and barely enough bath towels for our group.

I have rented through VRBO in a number of different countries and every time my expectations were exceeded. Not only were expectations not met but we felt ripped off as the price didn’t match what we got.

To top off this terrible experience, Behzad is trying to withhold our damage deposit for the following reasons:

- A light was left on in one of the bathrooms (honest mistake when shutting down a multi-room unit in the middle of the day)

- Furniture was out of place but failed to provide an example as we did not rearrange any furniture

- Failure to wash “extra” bedding. There wasn’t enough bedding provided in the first place

- San Diego Police were apparently called though they were never seen. Even when asked by an attorney to provide proof of such Behzad failed to do so. The one neighbor we had (one side was vacant) seemed very happy with us when we were leaving, said we “were great”. I don’t believe they were called in the first place. Our group never came home at the same time and at one point maybe had 4-5 girls talking inside past 10pm. We were out all three nights we were there so at no point were there 12 people up or being loud at the house past 9pm.

Behzad has ignored all correspondence with my attorney and I’m sure hoping that we’ll just give up as this has not only cost me a lot of money but now valuable time.

Upon reading an earlier guests review it is becoming clear this is a total scam. Behzad has written the contract with the

Owner's Response: Dear guests, This review SHOULD NOT be trusted for the following reason: (1) One of the owners welcomed Suz M. and the group to the property and since they had arrived early and the property was ready, he allowed them to check in FREE OF CHARGE. (2) At that time, Suz M. and the owner INSPECTED THE PROPERTY with regards to among others, the number of blankets, supplies, cleanliness of the kitchen and dishes, bathrooms, the grill, and patio furniture and SUZ M. had neither NEITHER VOICED CONCERNS NOR ASKED ANY QUESTIONS at that time. (3) The owner notified Suz M. personally that the quiet hours start at 9 PM, if the police comes more than once a month, the owner can be FINED UP TO $15,000. And that the next door neighbor is the one who absolutely hates all renters and usually calls police if the guests stay outside past 9 PM. (4) CONTRARY TO HER CLAIMS, the owner mentioned in the rental contract that due to prior guests not reimbursing him for damages and fines he incurred, the tenancy deposit will be retained to compensate him for repairs and/or if the SD police are called to to the premises, whether they come or not. (5) There is NO outdoor HOSE to wash anything, and we have a full time cleaning staff who work to ensure that there are no dirty dishes and adequate amounts of all supplies. (6) Contrary to her claims, the property description in the listing matches, all images are honest and accurate, a note explains that it is necessary to leave the fat on the grill to prevent corrosion due to a salty water mist from the ocean, and MOST OF ALL, if she is dissatisfied in any way, she can call the owners any time, which SHE NEVER DID.

Please be cautious - very negative experience

  • 1 of 5

I have been regularly renting properties on VRBO and other sites for many years now. This is by far the worst experience I have had. I would highly advise against renting from Behzad.

Reasons I would recommend not renting here:

1. The occupancy listing is not at all accurate. This house is listed as sleeping 18 people. If you look in the rental agreement you'll see it says "maximum occupancy of 13" and if you look at the description above you'll see it says "it sleeps 16." In reality the house has two queen beds, 4 twin beds, and 6 "sleeper sofas" that adds up to 14 people IF 6 of your guests sleep on fold down couches in the middle of the two (not particularly large) living rooms. Beyond not comfortably sleeping the number of people listed, the dishonesty and inconsistency of information from the renter is enough to be cautious alone.

2. After staying here with a group of friends, I received notification that NONE of our (very expensive) security deposit would be returned. The reasons listed were a combination of damages we did not cause and ridiculously trivial things. We were sent a picture of a single coffee cup we accidentally left out, a light that was left on in the garage, a pile of towels we used with the explanation "guests used an unreasonably large amount of towels" (we were a stated group of 16). We were also sent a picture of two damaged lawn chairs that had already been damaged, and most notably a picture of couch damage we did not cause. If you do decide to stay here, I would recommend taking a picture of EVERY piece of furniture upon arrival. We did not take pictures of all 6 couches and so Behzad will continue to falsely claim we caused damages.

3. Behzad is a multiple property owner and I am skeptical of many of his positive reviews. The positive review quoted in the description of this property is also attributed to a guest review of his other property (VRBO listing #444303). All of his reviewers have only reviewed one property and many use questionably similar language (including an obsession with "awesome" and "awesomesauce" from many reviewers.)

For all of these reasons please rent from Behzad at your own risk. If you do - read all agreements carefully and picture the condition of all furniture upon arrival. He will undoubtedly respond to this post below with some claim that I caused damages or did not inform him of these issues. I did, and have never had a negative experience with another VRBO owner prior to thi

Owner's Response: Dear guests, Nate K.'s review and recommendations SHOULD NOT be taken into account for the reasons stated below: (1) $500 of his tenancy DEPOSIT WAS REFUNDED on April 11, but on April 14, Nate K. implied that HE DIDN’T receive any money. (2) Nate K. denied causing any damages, but his or his friend’s recollection is questionable due to a large amount of alcohol that had been consumed by the group (which NATE K. conveniently neglected to mention). Although their party did have 16 people, over two large recycling bins were full of leftover cans. (3) CONTRARY TO HIS CLAIMS, I only charged him for the damaged brand new leather futon, which he wrote to me was fair because I provided a recent receipt. (4) The letter Nate K is complaining about, only expressed my deep disappointment as a host with this group of guests. I take a very good care of this property and want to make our guests feel at home and treat ours like theirs. (5) Contrary to his claims, the property description lists the maximum occupancy at 18 and ability to sleep people in beds at 14. This includes fold out beds. Thank you, Behzad
