vacation rental description

Welcome to my lovely beachfront home at Mission Beach. When my family bought the property, the girls always looked forward to going to The Big House.  The name stuck, and our home, located at 2962 Ocean Front Walk, is now a fully furnished rental property that has become a vacation destination for many travelers.  We purchased The Big House at Mission Beach because the area is friendly, safe, close to attractions and part of a village community.  Our girls loved the park, roller coaster, ferris wheel and the safety of this beach area.  I invite you to join our family and let us accommodate your next visit to San Diego.  A perfect destination for singles, couples, families and friends, The Big House offers affordable rates and full amenities. 
The Big House is a spacious home, a bit over 4000 square feet. For your comfort, we offer 4 twin beds, 1 queen, 2 double beds, 1 king, 1 queen air bed, 1 queen futon, 4 wide twin rollaway beds and a crib. The house has 5 bedrooms, 4 baths and sleeps 17 comfortably.  Recently, we purchased new beds, fresh bedding and linens.  The house is stocked with towels, linens, blankets and beach towels. Each room is attractive and homey.
Inside the house, the tile floors are clean and well cared for.  Let’s begin with the first floor: A generous living room has brown leather sectional sofa for lounging and watching tv.  Curl up by the fire and sit in the adjoining conversation area by the picture window.  Also on the main floor are two bedrooms and a bath.  The main floor dining room boasts an extended wood table that seats 17.  The kitchen is large, with tiled countertops, new sets of pottery serving 17, new cookware, serving pieces, glassware, oven and microwave, ice making refrigerator, dishwasher and an adjoining laundry room with full capacity washer and dryer.
Moving up to the second floor, we find the gorgeous Master Suite.  With a full sliding door, the room offers a romantic view of the ocean.  A luxurious stone fireplace, king size bed, leather sectional sofa, dresser unit and television add just the right home touch.  Step up into the tiled bathroom with vanity area, separate bath and walk-in closet. 
The third floor is a favorite for family visitors.  Privacy and charm accentuate this darling room with door to private balcony, twin beds, television and bath. 
Above the third floor is the attached condo.  This is a home of its own, with a separate bedroom, living area with television, leather sofa, chairs,  dining room,  kitchen, private deck, full kitchen with oven, microwave, refrigerator, dishwasher, washer/dryer set, pantry,  and private bath.  This apartment has its own entry door and offers complete privacy.
Outside,  The Big House has an attached garage and 2 carports.  Street parking, as well as a lot at the park, is available.   A spacious front patio facing the ocean is complete with teak wood dining table, chairs, additional round table with umbrella and new barbecue grill.  An outdoor deck with guard rail on the second floor is located just off  the master suite.  A cute private deck is off the third floor bedroom, and the attached condo has a long wood deck and new barbecue.   A short stone wall surrounds the patio, and the gate opens onto the boardwalk.   In the garage, you will find bicycles, and beach umbrellas and an extra refrigerator.
In addition to unobstructed views of the ocean and beach, The Big House is convenient to numerous activities and sightseeing areas.  Within walking distance: the white sands of the beach with ocean shore just a few yards away.  Lifeguards are on duty.  Sailboat and fishing boat rentals are nearby. Fishing excursions are also available.   Visit Sea World and the San Diego Zoo, all in the area.  Take a bike ride around the marina, or relax with a good book on the patio.  Take a short walk to the grass park and relax before riding the Belmont roller coaster and ferris wheel. 
Order a pizza from Big Kahuna or hop in the car and drive to one of the fantastic restaurants in the Gas Light District.  Drive down to the harbor and tour The Midway, stroll through the quaint shops and eat at one of the excellent restaurants.  Explore downtown San Diego and then drive over to Old Town.  There is no shortage of shopping in San Diego, and Mission Beach offers dive shops and souvenirs.  Drive to other beach areas and gather seashells.
Rental rates for The Big House are affordable, and we do everything we can to make your stay enjoyable.  Return guest discounts and mid week specials during April and May apply. Extend your stay and negotiate additional discounts.  Be sure to book early and let us know how we can serve your travel needs.

Family reunions…steps to the beach

Review submitted: August 19, 2014   Date of arrival: August 9, 2014

We recently rented this house for a family reunion…11 adults, 5 children. The kitchen was fully stocked with dinnerware and appliances. All bedrooms had TVs, and LR had many games, DVDs, books, etc. The best feature, in my opinion, was the huge dining table where we all gathered every night. A large front patio, gated, right on the boardwalk, had enough sturdy deck chairs to sit us all, with 2 large sun umbrellas. There is plenty of outdoor beach equipment including boogie boards, beach toys and towels.
The sleeping capabilities are not quite as advertised, if you are looking to sleep 17. The two fold out couches were broken and not able to be used as beds. The air bed leaked and was not usable. One of the rollaway beds in the garage was so rusted it could not be opened.
The apartment microwave broke on day 2 and we were told that it would not be replaced during our week's stay.
Bring paper goods, as the one provided roll of paper towels (think 16 people), and toilet paper needed to be replaced after a couple of days.
The property manager, David, was very responsive. He thanked me for bringing things to his attention and said he would follow-up on broken/non-usable items.
The location is wonderful, away from the noise and loiterers.
Would we stay there again? Yes, if the beds were fixed and the place actually slept 17 people.

Owners response: Dear Pam & Tim.

Thank you for your review of Patty's beach house. We really appreciate all comments on the house, positive & negative. The positive means we are meeting expectations. The negative lets us know where to possibly make changes.
We really do try to improve on the areas where needed. As I told you in my responses to you, thank you for bringing to our attention items that were nor working, broken, or not up to par.
We have since replaced the microwave, there are two in the house, replaced all 4 roll away beds with brand new twin size roll away beds and replaced air mattress. We have also retired the sofa beds.
During our busiest time of year, summer, we really rely on our renters comments about what's not working and either replace or try to improve what we can in the short time we have during turn around so all renters can have a positive experience.
We do that you come back and stay with us again in the future!

Thank you!!
David Britt

Party Zone

Review submitted: June 18, 2014   Date of arrival: May 24, 2014

Not knowing a lot about Mission Beach, I booked the home because it was on the beach on the ocean & it had a lot of space for our family of 7 adults and 1 baby. The home was true to its claim and the surf at the beach made the ability for 3 married couples, 1 grand baby & 1 singleton to enjoy the space and ocean.

Unfortunately, we found that Mission Beach is 90% rentals and packed in with apartments, multi- family dwellings & a huge party place. If you are a party person, then you will love this location. If you are not, I would highly suggest picking a different location. The beds were comfortable but the home is certainly showing it's age, no window coverings on any if the west windows so it gets hot. The patio has the most amazing view

Recommended for: adventure seekers, romantic getaway

Owners response: thank you Shelly very much for the review. the Summer season is filled with people getting to the beach away from the heat! we do have removable shades that can be hung if you would prefer to the view of the ocean. Please do return during the spring and fall when it is more quiet.

Hi David,

I just wanted to extend a huge THANK YOU to you & Patty. We had such a great visit at the Big Beach House over the past weekend. We grew up in San Diego so heading back & staying at such a great house really made the weekend. The layout worked well for our 3 families & clearly can't get a better location!

Please pass along our gratitude to Patty for sharing her home with us.

Carin (& family)
