About Scott

I am a San Diego Native and lived for many years in South Mission until I had to move inland because I was getting too lethargic about work. (An innate risk with the property, you've been warned) :0) When not working (Management & Technology Consulting and Real Estate Development), I love travel (50+ countries), sailing, surfing, golf, hiking and all the other outdoorsy activities San Diego offers.

Scott purchased this condo in 2003

Why Scott chose San Diego County

I purchases this vacation rental in South Mission Beach because of location! location! location! South Mission is close to Belmont Park/Wavehouse pool and the most affluent and mature part of Mission Beach. Walking to everything you need is a nice luxury. Mission beach is also the only community in San Diego where the Beach and the Bay are in such close proximity to each other. I chose the 2nd floor of the building so that I would have privacy from the people on the boardwalk but low enough to stay connected to the beach.

I also tricked the Audio/Visual of the rental out so that my tenants have access to NetFlix, Playstation, and Flat-screens in every room. There is also auxiliary jack for music players.

What makes this condo unique

Walking to everything is a very special feature. I like walking over to Canes to grab a margarita and appetizers to watch the sunset, or pull my cayak or sailboat down to the bay for an afternoon sail.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I'd like to invite any guest comments.



Potential guests I encourage to contact me and ask for references. I aim to make your experience the best ever. I don't have any guest with a bad experience. If any of my scores of references do not endorse that my vacation rental is not one of the best valued locations they have experienced, then I don't deserve your business.



Kindly,



Scott

Great location but run down

  • 3 of 5

Its a lovely location. Very close to the beach and right on the bay. The whole place needs an overhaul. Broken fans, outlets with tape, cracked glass on table, dishwasher didnt work, fridge was functioning but not well. kitchen necessities are lacking. The direction of the house and no A/c makes it very warm. There are a few fans in the house but not all functioning....only ough toilet paper in the place for one day. No paper towels. Lots of little things lacking. It is a place with great potential if some attention is given to it. For the price, we will go elsewhere next year

Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this beach house it was perfect for our larger group and will definitely be coming back to stay! The weather was perfect during our stay and the view of the beach was amazing and just steps from the door! I loved the keyless entry it was nice not having to carry around a room key. One recommendation is getting blinds or some drapes for the living room windows. In the morning/afternoon it gets super bright and slightly warm and would have been nice to be able to close the blinds. Thanks for having us we look forward to coming back!

Pluses and minuses

  • 3 of 5

Our stay had pluses and minuses. The key was behind a locked door that was not mentioned in the instructions. Multiple calls to the owner went unanswered. The "manager" instructed us to call the owner. After a long wait a neighbor let us in.

The location is beautiful however the condo has a great deal of deferred maintenance issues. Several of the dining chairs are wobbly and unusable. There is a water leak in the kitchen that produces a puddle to clean each day. The dish washer doesn't work.

The listing indicates the property has A/C, it doesn't.

Again, the location is wonderful and the property has great potential but it is very worn with stained and wrinkled carpeting in the hall and bedrooms.

Great location, condo can use minor improvements

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time during our visit but some small changes would have increased our satisfaction with the condo.

1. Proactive communication from the owner would have been appreciated. The condo door codes were not updated on the site so we went back/forth to the two doors multiple times to try and enter the bldg. Also, the dishwasher was broken, it would have been nice to know this before we loaded it up. A simple email would have addressed these two issues.

2. The internet connection is very slow. If you need to do any work while there, it is easier to go to a Starbucks location.

3. Cable has only 20ish or so channels. No CNN, ESPNs, TNT, FOX news or FOX sports. If you want to watch a game in the evening, you better go to the bars around the corner. :)

4. Carpet in hallway and bedrooms is worn and stained.

You honestly would be hard pressed to find a better location. We spent beach time on the bay and ocean sides and Belmont Park, restaurants and the kids playgrounds were close enough to walk to even with younger kids. It also had parking large enough to hold a full size SUV which is hard to find! None of the above issues detracted from the great time we had with our family but it did keep us from providing a 5 star rating.
