Why Julie Tudela chose Mission Beach
Thanks to the kids' grandparents who treated us...we stayed here years ago when our children were ages 2, 4, and 6 -- now they are young adults and still loving the place! The location is ideal! We love being so close to the ocean (50 steps away), but also enjoy the privacy of the being one house back from the boardwalk.
What makes this Condo unique
We love the location, of course! But we also love that the light airy feel of the place, and the charming, casual beachy vibe. Hard wood floors and original french windows , and a great big ocean view deck, let us enjoy the sounds, sights and scents of the ocean from almost every room! New is great, but we love the old charm and charisma of this spanish style building and courtyard! The downstairs 1B/1b is perfect when we want to invite friends or family to join us! and 2B/1ba are perfect when friends and grandparents want to join us -- all together, but each family has their own space. Perfect! Hope you'll come visit and make great memories for your family.

Julie was wonderful to work with. We had a great time
Great location, spacious & perfect family vacation
Perfect family vacation! We were there for a month to escape the snow and found it very relaxing & convenient. Plenty of room for my kiddo & family/friends to visit throughout our stay. We enjoyed the ability to use the bikes as main transportation & the convenience of having a parking space when needed. The patio was perfect for card games, reading and mainly soaking in the amazing weather.
The host was great to work with and responded quickly for any questions/needs. This was our 2nd time renting from them and hope to repeat next year! Thank you Julie for being a great host!!
Karie, I am so happy you and your family had a great time! thank you for the positive feedback and for taking the time to leave a review! you are welcome back anytime!
A wonderful experience!! The condo was located in a great area just steps from the beach.
Great way to spend the 4th!
Spent the weekend with our 2 kids, their spouses and 2 grandkids. Plenty of room (one bedroom is a bunk style), clean and all the things you need to have a great week at the beach. Easy access to both the ocean side as well as the bay. Location is far enough south that you don't feel the crowd near the roller coaster, but can walk there easily to join the fun. This was a 2nd floor location which we liked better than we thought we would primarily because it caught the breeze. I'd recommend it highly.
Cute beach house steps from the shore
My family has been renting beach houses in Mission Bay for the past 6 years. This was the best one that we have rented. We liked having lots of space (Each child was lucky enough to have their own room) and we had our own room and private bathroom. I liked that there weren't any house keys, just a keypad to enter the house. Also, we were able to fit our Sienna minivan in the garage. It was a tight fit, but my husband was able to get it in there with NO scratches!! This is no easy feat for garages and parking spaces in the Mission Beach area.
There were lots of games, chairs, beach toys, boogie boards, kitchen utensils for us to use. I felt the kitchen was well stocked and easy to use.
We appreciated being on the second floor because we were able to get more of a breeze to help us keep cool, the only negative is that there weren't any screens (which isn't as big of a problem as first floor rentals, there are often a lot of flies at the beach), but, with all of the windows open you get a lot of noise from the alley below. There weren't any loud noisy neighbors, but the trash trucks two mornings and some random parents calling for their kids in the morning, cars driving by etc were loud in the house. This complaint isn't limited to this property, just a fact about being so close to other people in the Mission Bay/Mission Beach area.
I would recommend this property to others. The owner was very easy to communicate with and was a delight to talk to on the phone while I was deciding to rent this property. She was prompt in returning our deposit.
Hi Wendy, thanks for your feedback! Sounds like you were happy with most things about our home, but not so keen about the area? Yes, real estate is at a premium down here, and the houses are close together, and yes, trash truck is loud, but for us, it's worth it to be this close to the beach, and have lovely beach views, without paying ocean front prices.
As for your comment about no screens on the windows, I will look into that, thanks! I'm not sure how (if possible?) to add screens to the charming old french windows which swing out, but I will look into it (flies are icky!) We usually avoid them by keeping blinds down, tilted open enough to see view, and let in beautiful sunshine...but seems to keep flies out!
So glad we are the best house you have stayed at! Thanks again for staying with us!
Great location! The owner was so pleasant to communicate with. The place was equipped with everything we needed. Would definitely stay there again.
Richard, Thanks for taking the time to submit a guest review! Appreciate your kind words! Hope you'll come back again. Julie
Great Brand new restaurants went in Summer of 2015 - We now have Cannonball Sushi (Chef from Tower 23) with fantastic panoramic ocean views and Draft, downstairs...right on the boardwalk. Just a ten minute walk from our home!
