Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you for everything! We thoroughly enjoyed our week, in San Diego, at the beach in your rental. Your location was perfect as the kids could run right out the door onto the sand and play.



The accommodations were just as you described, comfortable fresh beds, well stocked kitchen and the rental was spotless and well maintained. The decor was tropical and we felt we were really at the beach.

We really appreciate you going above and beyond with your attention to details and all the helpful information about where to eat and the great sites to see in San Diego. I can recommend this rental to anyone!

VERY PLEASANT VACATION EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
Our family had a wonderful vacation while staying at the Skimmer. Proximity to the bay and beach was a highlight not to mention Sea World and Zoo. The owner, Cyndi, was pleasant to deal with and we wouldn't hesitate to contact her again.

Perfect Family Spot

  • 5 of 5
I poured over all kinds of listings to find the perfect place for our Family trip to San Diego and Sea World - When I found this place I knew I hit the jackpot. The owner was a pleasure to work with and made making all of the arrangements very easy. We wanted something on the beach and close to Sea World and it was perfect. We enjoyed being on the bay side as it was much quieter than the beach and the kiddos (5 and 7) could play out on the beach comfortably - the only thing we missed were the sunsets - but just a short walk across the main road and we were at the ocean side where we were able to catch the beautiful sunsets. The bay side is much more private, quiet and less windy. The interior was just as described and pictured - very clean and modern, we didn't feel we were missing anything. We were thankful we minded the small parking spot warning when we chose our rental car! We would most definitely stay here again. - Thank you!

Best Family Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5
We had an awesome family vacation at The Skimmer at A Vacation by the Bay. Cyndi, the owner and longtime resident of Mission Bay, was great. She greeted us upon arrival and gave us a tour of the unit and answered any questions we had. The property was impeccably clean and ready for us upon check in. Everything we could have needed for the week was there provided for us, including an information booklet about the area with things to do. The location was perfect for a family with children. We could easily watch our kids play on the beach from the patio safely. The view was spectacular, including an amazing display of the fireworks from Sea World every night. I would highly recommend this property or any of the ones offered by A Vacation by the Bay. We hope to return again next year!

We will be back!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
This vacation rental, called The Skimmer, was just as described from the photos and description. You are right on the beach front on the bayside which was perfect for our family. We had visiting grand kids and they were able to play right out front on the beach.
We did go over to the ocean a couple of days in the afternoon, but mainly we were content to relax at the bay's beach. We did visit the Zoo and Cabrillo Monument during the week as suggested.
Cyndi was great, she greeted us upon arrival and did a quick walk through and we were able to ask her a couple of questions.
The Skimmer is very cute with a nautical theme through out. The King bed in the master was very comfortable, just as promised too.
Everything was really clean and the rental was in top shape and showed that its well cared for. We have rented vacation rentals before and never had so much attention to detail as this one. There are ample restaurants to pick from and never ran out of fun things to do.
All in all, it was a great vacation that I am really glad we had together.
Yes I would recommend this rental to friends.
We will be back here!

Owner's Response: Hi Pam,
Thanks so much for your great review and taking the time to share your experience with other potential renters. Yes, we do go to great lengths to provide a nice, well maintained, impeccably clean vacation rental.
Our location is really quite nice on the beach front bayside. The bayside is really a wonderful choice for any one wanting a more serene vacation, or for families with young children who can play safely right out front on the water's edge.
Not only are we a nice choice for weekly vacation rentals, we are also really great choice for snow birds wanting break from the cold winter months in January and February.
We do care about your experience from start to your completed stay.
So, thanks again Pam for choosing our vacation rental for your family stay in Mission Beach.
We also want to thank you for taking such good considerate care of The Skimmer too.

Come again anytime!!!!!
