traveler reviews for this mission bay apartment rental


Review submitted: January 4, 2010   Date of arrival: December 25, 2009

When I first came across this rental I was slightly hesitant about owners residing upstairs, you would never even know they were there, but they were available if you had a problem. Gave us an over veiw of where things were, how to operate garbage disposal etc and were gone.

Unit is very clean & neat, close to everything. The photos in listing are very accurate, no suprises. What you see in photos is what you get.

Only downside is parking is very tight, my husband decided to upgrade his car rental to a Lincoln town car...very tight to park, so if you can make do with a full size car like the size of an Impala or smaller you will be fine.
After long days of sight seeing it was a pleasure to come back here, grill some dinner, throw some clothes in the washer & sit outside & relax with a glass of wine. Oh that was a huge plus not to come home with a suitcase full of dirty clothes.

This unit is excellent and I would not hesitate to recommend to family & friends. I would not hesitate to rent again on my next visit.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, tourists without a car, romantic getaway

Owners response: We loved having Rich & Kate stay at our Mission Bay Hideaway and hope that they hurry back really soon. Bill especially enjoyed reminiscing with Rich about their days in the Navy - both had been on aircraft carriers deployed to Vietnam in the late 60's.
As for the parking - everyone in the beach areas in San Diego vie for each inch of parking space. The space on the side of our house for the rental is actually quite roomy when our neighbor remembers not to crowd us with his large van. This will automatically improve in the very near future since he's in the process of selling the van and moving back east. We also have an arrangement with our neighbor, Hank, 2 doors down, on the corner lot, to swap parking spaces with our tenants, and let them use his large parking space when they have a large vehicle that needs extra room.

Perfect Location

Review submitted: May 20, 2014   Date of arrival: May 7, 2014

This property has an amazing location right in the center of Mission Bay. The bay is within sight, and the Pacific Ocean is across the street less than a block away. We had a rental car, which I think was necessary to our travels to such places as the Zoo and Balboa Park, Botanical Gardens, and downtown. As for the space, it was very clean and had all the amenities of a house rental. We had friends stay one night and there was plenty of space to entertain and accomodate them. The owners are very nice and personable. There are no negatives I can give, even if I were to be nit-picky.

Owners response: We enjoyed hosting Jay and Joe and truly appreciate their kind remarks. We feel privileged that over the last 10 years we've been able to offer our Mission Bay Hideaway location to travelers from all over the US, as well as to numerous overseas visitors. As Jay describes, we're nestled between Mission Bay and Mission Beach, on a quiet court, that provides privacy for our guests as well as immediate access to the myriad activities the beach and bay have to offer. When you return from your busy day, you can relax in your private, dining area and cook up a tasty meal on the natural gas BBQ, or in the gourmet kitchen. We've tried to provide every possible kitchen utensil; however, if something you need isn't there, just ring our intercom and we'll run it down to you from upstairs. There is a Reference Notebook in the apartment with lots of helpful information, including nearby restaurants and suggested activities, as well as a list of available videos. We also request feedback from our guests and make every effort to accommodate new requests and suggestions.

Jay also refers to nearby visits to the famous San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park and Downtown San Diego. Although an auto is preferable, the bus stop is only a block away and can have you in Old Town in less than 45 minutes. There you can access the San Diego Trolley to numerous key locations in and around San Diego, such as the Downtown Gas Lamp District, Padre Stadium, south to the Mexican border, and east to Qualcomm Stadium, San Diego State University, & La Mesa (home of San Diego's Octoberfest), with vouchers for continued bus transit from trolley stops. Old Town also has a Hop-on, Hop-off trolley bus that takes visitors to several of the key locations in San Diego, including the Cabrillo Monument, Coronado Island, and La Jolla.

We look forward to Jay & Joe returning to our Mission Bay Hideaway again in the not-too-distant future.

Beautiful Weekend Stay

Review submitted: May 13, 2014   Date of arrival: May 2, 2014

My two kids and I chose to visit San Diego at the last minute for a long weekend. We had never been to San Diego and only knew we wanted to be near the beach and we didn't want to rent a car. Mission Bay Hideaway was the perfect option! It is located between Mission Bay and the Pacific Ocean. There were great cafes & restaurant options nearby and the grocery store was close. The apartment itself was very clean and in a quiet area nicely positioned off the main street but a stones throw to the bay. We utilized the transit system, the nearest stop being a minute or two away, to take a little trip up to La Jolla and to get to Belmont park. The bikes that were available would have made it even easier to get around had my kids been a little older. But the kids did utilize the boogie boards and sand toys and I appreciated the beach chair. I can't say enough good things about Mission Bay Hideaway! The owners were accommodating, the apartment clean and homey, the area safe and close to many attractions. It was relaxing and beautiful and I would totally stay there again!

Owners response: We truly appreciate Traci's kind comments. As she states, our location is ideal, a stone's throw to both Mission Bay, ideal for kids to play in the sand to their heart's content while parents relax on a sand chair, and Mission Beach, where both young & old can enjoy the waves & all kinds of beach activities. We provide 3 adult bikes and 1 child's bike, and tools in a sealed container for lowering or raising the seats or handle bars. Also, there are two bike rental places a block away for any additional needs. Closeness to stores and restaurants is a big plus, and as Traci states, the bus stop is a block away, and provides rapid transit to key places to visit in San Diego, including La Jolla to the north and Old Town, to the south, both a must see. The San Diego Trolley stop in Old Town provides inexpensive transport to go south to the outlet stores on the border with Tijuana, to the Ballpark or Gas Lamp District in downtown San Diego, or points east, like the Mission Center and Fashion Valley Malls, San Diego State University, Qualcomm Stadium and more. We really enjoy hosting wonderful guests like Traci, and look forward to her return in the very near future. Sincerely, Bill & Calina
