We now own the beach house we rented for nine summer vacations. Located on the Pacific Ocean side of Mission Beach, 6 blocks north of historic Belmont Park, on a very well-maintained court. Get away from the crowds on the boardwalk and still be super close to the beach. Only two houses between us and the sand; walk there in 30 seconds… or less. Plan a family vacation, reunion, corporate get-away, destination wedding or just grab your good friends and come vacation at our beach house.
