What makes this Townhome unique

Mission Bay is full of miles and miles of white sandy beaches, activities including boating, paddle boarding, fishing, beach volleyball, bike path, and much more!

Good property but could use some minor repairs
The property was in a great location to the beach but if you have a vehicle with any size to it the parking is difficult ( we had trouble getting into the garage in our SUV but smaller cars would be ok).
There were several little things that didn’t work very well ( the dishwasher is old and awkward to use, the door on the washing machine is broken so it’s hard to use, the jacuzzi didn’t work, and the electric outlets in master bathroom didn’t work). These were minor things but they were what kept the whole experience from being exceptional.
The beds were very comfortable and the access to the beach was better than anticipated so if you are not worried about some little issues then I recommend this property.
Should NOT be a vacation rental!!
This property was filthy. Lacking cooking utensils. Dirty bbq utensils left on the grill. Top bunk smelled like it was soaked with urine. Bed sheets did not smell clean. We washed for four hours our first night. Pots and pans looked like The Goodwill would throw them out, rather than sell. I had to contact the management company and ask for the code to get in the day of check in. I cleaned what we later realized was ‘spray can cheese’ off a table in a bedroom and from behind the door of another bedroom. Furniture looked like something they found in the alley. I am not a picky person and I knew this place was renting for less than most rentals of this size for the time of year, and we quickly found out why. Dirty towels under the sink, not stained, I washed them. Broken door on the washer. You had to lift up and really struggle to open. And filthy washer! I cleaned mold and what looked like thick caked on crap. I scrubbed door frames, as they were that visibly dirty with spills, dirt and dust, and even dried blood on one of them. A cleaning crew would have to be blind to not notice this. . There wasn’t even a dustpan in the place, which explained the piles of dirt left inside the front door on the floor upon our arrival. I let the management company know each and every grievance along the way. I was refunded three nights stay because they knew they were in the wrong. I let them know as soon as I checked in how filthy it was, they sent a cleaning lady with a spray bottle and a cleaning rag. My adult children saw her dust some blinds in a bedroom. Which I actually dusted and cleaned when I came back. It was a joke. I spent two hours sanitizing and even cleaning booger’s off a wall. Management stopped by a few days into my stay and brought a plant. Not any of the necessities that were missing. This place is a college rental during the school year. This is why it was so cheap for peak season, they wanted to fill it as much as they could with vacation renters. This wasn’t hard to figure out. Do not stay here. I have pictures to document each and every claim. From the cheese, to the booger’s, to the ‘junk’ that they call pots and pans and ‘fully stocked’ kitchen. Not sure who the owner is, as it only lists the property management company. I was asked to please not post pictures, and was given a refund of three nights. Do not rent this place. Unless it is under new management or purchased, fixed up and has new management.
Looks good on the surface but don't look too hard
This property is very worn. It seems more suitable for a bachelor party then a family vacation. Limited glassware, no ice maker, cabinet doors off hinges, furniture all second hand, no handle in the master shower, etc. We purchased a box fan for one bedroom which was 82 degrees in the morning, hard to get a cross wind with windows only on one side. The location can't be beat but it was hard to get past everything else.
Nice location. House was not clean.
The pictures did not do this property justice. The property is better than the pictures. The family area was spacious, the kitchen had room for a lot of people. The property is awesome for families with teenagers, young adults or multipal families (little kids might not be that great). We had a separate living quarters from our young adults. The plumbing was always at the temperature that you may want. I have 3 daughters with multipal friends and showers were never an issue. The kitchen had everything. My wife was so impressed with all the little things that were supplied that we tend to forget about. The gas stove was awesome, the washer and dryer all worked great. The refrigerator even reminded you when the door was open too long. The beach supplies were adequate. We forgot our Smash ball at home but we found one in the supply closet. The house had plenty of "nice" towels, and paper supplies. The beds were very comfortable and lots of pillows. The management company was always available. They contacted us before, during and after our stay. They were always making sure we had everything. One of the neighbors was out of town and their fire alarm was going off. Our management company represented another neighbor and he was the only one conccerned that we were not being disturbed. These people were so friendly and always available by texting or emails. They made sure we had an awesome vacation. Thank you
