Why Tara Strauss chose Mission Beach
Mission Beach is ideally situated to provide you the opportunity to enjoy the best of what San Diego has to offer. Centrally located with easy access to all major attractions, and just one block from either the beach or the bay, arguably San Diego's best feature. With only one thoroughfare providing limited access to the South Mission Beach properties, this area is quieter and more peaceful than the nearby neighborhoods of North Mission and Pacific Beach, which experience more traffic and activity. If you're in the mood for a little nightlife, two classic local watering holes, the Beachcomber and the Pennant, are just a few minutes' walk away, as well as convenient markets and delicatessens.
What makes this Apartment unique
We think this property is the ideal place for your San Diego getaway, whether you're a couple looking for a romantic retreat, a group of friends on vacation, or a family looking for fun activities for parents and little ones alike. First floor location gives you immediate access to the beach and bay. A spacious tandem garage provides off-street shelter and protection for two vehicles. Take advantage of our complimentary surfboards, and boogie boards to enjoy this perfectly-situated location. Enjoy outdoor barbecuing on our spacious front patio or cook up a meal in our well-appointed kitchen. Watch TV or a Netflix movie on our flat-screen TV, and connect to complimentary wireless internet for your electronic devices.

Wonderful family getaway condo!
Our family of 4 had THE BEST vacation! The condo is steps away from the bay with all the beach toys needed for a fun day ready in the garage. The condo is well appointed and the manager is readily available if needed. The ocean side is a short walk away and Belmont Park is a half mile (an easy walk along the ocean). This location and condo are highly recommended!!
Great location! Beautiful home
Tara and Mark were super helpful in helping us check in. The process was self check in and easy to do. Great location, close to waters and everything.
A wonderful family trip
From the moment we made our way onto the patio, we knew this was going to be a great place -- and it was! The building is lovely, and the setting is so cool: a large private patio with all the amenities in the midst of a funky/cool/tranquil/beautiful setting, with the bay to the right and the ocean to the left. Tara has made sure that every need is met - the kitchen is stocked with all necessities for cooking, the bathrooms are spacious, and the beds are very comfortable. The living room is perfect for hanging out and watching TV. Everything was perfectly clean, modern, and in great condition. It rained during our stay so we couldn't barbeque or hang out on the beach -- yet we still had a great time! Best of all, Tara was very welcoming - she gave us great advance directions, and when we had questions while on-site, she was immediately responsive and wanted, above all, for us to have a comfortable and happy stay. I hope we can come back again!
Perfect stay for our family of four.
We had a fabulous stay. It had everything we needed from dishes, laundry, towels, toys for the beach. The location couldn't be better- we walked to the bay and over to the beach daily. Although it wasn't swimming weather for us, we enjoyed exploring the area and all the things to do in San Diego. This place was awesome for our family of four, and our boys loved hanging out - it felt home-like to us. We definitely hope to be back someday!
