About the Property
2 bedroom, 2 bath, apartment just a stones throw away from the Beach and the Bay
Located on one of the quiet tree-lined walkways of Mission Beach, this unit is just steps away from both the beach and bay. To the west, just across Mission Blvd is the exciting, vibrant boardwalk and the ocean front setting of South Mission Beach. Surf, boogie-board, or swim in the waves, stretch out on the sand in the sun, or make sand castles and play on the shoreline. Take an easy walk to South Mission Beach Park with its grassy picnic areas, basketball and volleyball courts, and rocky jetty extending into the ocean. Walk, jog, skate or bike along the famous boardwalk, which meanders for miles along the entire beachfront and around all of Mission Bay.
To the east, just a few steps from your door, you'll find the quiet, peaceful bayfront and the tranquil waters of Mariner's Basin, a protected arm of Mission Bay. Sailboats rest at anchor, wide sandy beaches stretch along Bayside Walk, and grassy park and playground areas are just a few minutes away. Watch boats cruise in and out of the channel between rocky jetties, gaze across the water to Dog Beach, Hospitality Point, enjoy views of bridges, the Hyatt Islandia hotel, and the SeaWorld Skytower.
Half a mile north is Belmont Park, featuring the restored 1925 wooden Giant Dipper roller coaster and other amusement park rides. The olympic-sized indoor swimming pool The Plunge is also here, as well as the Wave House and assorted retail shops and eateries. Farther north but within easy biking distance, enjoy Crystal Pier, boat rental facilities, as well as the exciting shopping, restaurants, and nightlife of Pacific Beach along Garnet Avenue.
This rental is situated perfectly to enjoy the vast playground of Mission Bay Park, where you can bike for over ten miles along the waterfront areas without ever encountering street traffic. Enjoy swimming, snorkeling/diving, boating, sailing, waterskiing, surfing, windsurfing, parasailing, jetskiing, and many other activities.
Within 5-20 minutes is SeaWorld, the world-famous San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park, and Old Town with its excellent Mexican restaurants. In the downtown area you'll find Seaport Village, Petco Park, our modern Convention Center, and the historic Gaslamp Quarter. Or visit scenic La Jolla, with its beautiful Cove and upscale shops and restaurants.
Half an hour's drive takes you to Mexico to the south or Legoland to the north. A bit farther is the Wild Animal Park, gambling casinos, and the quaint historic gold rush town of Julian, in the mountains east of San Diego. Even Disneyland and Knott's Berry Farm can be easily done as a day trip.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Why Mission Beach, San Diego, CA, USA:
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.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
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.
