About the property

Mission Bay's Tranquil Blue Waters Complimented By White Sand Beaches

Located in the heart of San Diego's most popular bay (Mission Bay) and just 2 blocks one direction to Fiesta Bay and 2 blocks the other direction to Sail Bay (Beautiful Sunsets) our place offers everything you might need to rest, rejuvenate and have some fun in San Diego! Note: The street does get a fair amount of traffic so you will hear some road noise in the living room with the windows open.

Not only are we right down the street from shopping, restaurants and entertainment, but we are mere minutes from San Diego's best beaches, including Pacific Beach, Mission Beach, La Jolla and Del Mar. Sea World is right around the corner (literally 2 minutes), Balboa Park is just a hop, skip and a jump away, and the Gaslamp District is about 10 minutes down Interstate 5. Let's just say we're about 10 minutes from almost any place you might want to visit in our amazing city, as well as the San Diego International Airport!

This home is a tastefully designed two-bedroom with a full kitchen that can sleep six. Our beach cottage features two queen-sized beds, along with a very comfortable sofa sleeper. The kitchen is fully equipped for cooking and amenities include, free Wi-Fi and Netflix.

About Drew

Hi! We are Neal and Drew (brothers) and Aimee. We all love traveling, San Diego, and especially helping other traveling folks like yourselves! Please allow us to facilitate your stay in sunny San Diego; we hope you love our city as much as we do!

As hosts we'll help you find great things to do, see, and eat in San Diego, whether it's off the beaten path or something as mainstream as catching a Padres or Chargers game!

Drew purchased this house in 2008

Why Drew chose Crown Point

The alluring image of Mission Bay's tranquil blue waters complimented by white sand beaches have been attracting people to San Diego for decades! Nestled between Fiesta Bay and Sail Bay, our home is located on a peninsula on the northern end of the bay in the quaint neighborhood of Crown Point. Within biking and walking distance to the beaches and nightlife of Mission Beach and Pacific Beach, Crown Point exemplifies the ideal San Diego lifestyle!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Chad and family were perfect guests. They left Mellow Yellow in perfect shape, were very easy to communicate with by phone and text and they seemed very easy going about the entire process. Chad was also super friendly and flexible about staying with us! We highly recommend Chad and would love to have him back any time.

Not what I was expecting

  • 2 of 5

It was a great location and 15-20 minutes to almost anything. I did read the reviews before booking so we were aware of the traffic noise ahead of time. We stayed for a week after Christmas. The place was surface clean but if you took a closer look it was dirty. Pull-out mattress would be suitable for a child but not for an adult, very thin mattress. Couch was lumpy, towels in bathroom were old and faded, inside of drawers were dirty, floorboards dirty, chairs on the island wobbly and squeaky, blinds in kitchen sections were broken, dishware needs updating. You can hear the neighbors through the walls, I think next door is another rental. Careful with showers because the hot water runs out fast. A few small updates/repairs and is thoroughly cleaning is needed.

Great Place!

  • 4 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our stay at Yellow Mellow. Quite Neighboorhood, really close to the beach and the house was clean. Only down side was the lack of AC and it's only one bathroom.

Easy Breezy

  • 4 of 5

Super cute pad in walking distance to the beach, recreational area and great restaurants. Besides the loud noise from being close to the street, it was GREAT! Drew and other owners were very easy to coordinate with and responded quickly to all questions!

Great location but the furniture smelled

  • 3 of 5

First the positives. This home is in walking distance to good restaurants and the bay. The two negatives and why I deducted two stars: 1. The couch smelled like bad body-odor & cigarette smoke. We had to take blankets off the beds to cover the couch to mask the smell.

2. The welcome book said they offered Apple TV, but when we spoke to the owner they had discontinued this service. The only option was Netflix which was continually buffering, and would not allow you to complete a movie before it gave you the error to pick another program.

Great location! Room for some improvements

  • 3 of 5

Mellow Yellow was a great location for our stay. There were 4 adults and one baby. It was just a few blocks from the bay and just down the street from a great restaurant we ate at--The Menu.

A few suggestions for improvements: get better speakers for the TV (the sound quality was pretty bad and if you have the windows open or fans on you really can't hear anything), and some window AC units would go a long way. The road noise from Ingrahm St is loud and doesn't die down at night. We didn't get good sleep the first night because we had the windows open with fans going, thinking the road noise would die down but it stayed very steady all night. Slept better with windows closed but it was harder to stay cool. If anything a few more fans would be helpful.

Owners were very responsive when we needed a battery replacement for the tv remote; we appreciated that.

Overall it was a great place to stay and very comfortable with the exception of the tv sound and street noise at night with windows open--which a few window units would fix great! Can't beat the location though!
