House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, 10 Sleeps
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.
Main House: The main house is 1850 square feet, with three bedrooms plus large loft area, and three full baths. It sleeps 10 people very comfortably. Outdoor areas are on every level: roof deck with panoramic ocean views, a "coffee porch" off the main living area, and a fully enclosed, private front patio with ocean views on the first floor. Lots of places to sleep, relax, and play.
1st Floor: On the first floor are two bedrooms (BR 1=Cal King, BR2=Twins which can be converted to king). Both bedrooms have their own full bath. Both have French doors that lead onto the large front patio with gas BBQ , umbrella covered seating and ocean views.
2nd Floor: The second floor is the main living area. It has a spectacular vaulted ceiling with huge exposed beams, open concept Great Room with fireplace, dining room, fully stocked kitchen with breakfast bar and granite countertops. French doors lead to the “coffee porch,” the best place to enjoy your morning coffee or evening cocktail.. The dining table can be expanded to seat 8-10, and there is seating for 2 more at the breakfast bar.
The third bedroom (with queen bed) and third full bath are also on this floor, as well as a sunroom.
Third floor/loft: Stairs off a sunroom lead up to the third floor where the loft overlooks the great room. Loft has two twin beds & a comfortable queen futon. Take an afternoon nap with the windows open to the bay breezes.
From the loft, a door leads outside to a large roof deck furnished with teak deck chairs, a hammock, large rolling umbrella, and a dining area. There are incredible beach and bay views. Sunbath in private while your children nap. Watch the sun set over the Pacific. Enjoy your own private fireworks display from Sea World.
We have recently rebuilt all the railings in the house to meet current code! We’ve also added built-in baby gates at the top of both sets of interior stairs. Families with young children will find our house more relaxing and enjoyable than ever!
Optional Guest Apartment: If you have a larger group, ask about renting the “dollhouse” apartment also. (See VR listing#4085) It is a charming dollhouse (approx 650 sq. ft) with two bedrooms and one bath, a full kitchen, vaulted ceilings, wood floors, and a small loft. Located above the garage, it has a private entrance, private patio, and its own garage spot. It sleeps 4-5. Rent both units and you can sleep a maximum of 15.
No Smoking, No Pets, No Loud/Large Parties: We do not rent to vacationing students or singles under age 30.

Vacation getaway made simple
Home Away from Home
My family enjoyed our time in San Diego, especially the beach time because of this property and being only steps from the beach with all the toys and chairs to make it fun and easy.
Not having to pack or worry about my toddlers safety and sleeping arrangement made travel much more enjoyable than ever before.
The owner Nancy was extremely helpful and answered my emails quickly. Her suggestions of local restaurants and attractions was like having a personal concierge! My kid's hi-light was a bon fire on the beach with s'mores and my oldest loved using the scooter everywhere we went!
Such a delight to have a stress free vacation to a home.
Can't wait to come back.
Good for the soul vacation!
A San Diego Must!
