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.

Quiet yet steps from bay and yards from ocean

Review submitted: March 25, 2014   Date of arrival: March 4, 2014

We arrived on a Tuesday and stayed until Saturday. The place was clean, nice, and in a wonderful location in Mission Beach. Closer to the bay side, the street is quiet. The hustle, noise, and college age drama of the beach was absent. We were literally steps from walking along the bay with our coffee in the morning. We could be on the beach walk in two blocks.

Off street parking space is a huge plus (Toyota Corolla fit fine), and the owners are very nice and responsive. Bikes, kayak, beach toys all available. Outdoor grill on patio. Ralph's grocery 8 blocks away so we were stocked in a couple of hours for the week. Kitchen is fine and well appointed with pots and pans.

We would recommend to anyone.

Owners response: We truly appreciate these kind remarks from our guest. The things that Eric highlights are some of the exact reasons that we located here, and that we mention in our profile on We originally built the downstairs 2 bedroom, 2 bath apartment for Mom & Dad, so they could enjoy the same amenities as we enjoy in our upstairs home. Since their passing, some years ago, we've been able to offer these same amenities to countless guests from all over the world, and have made many new friends in the process. We recently made several upgrades in the apartment, and have planned many more in the upcoming weeks to keep it fresh and new for forthcoming guests.

Sincerely, Bill & Calina

Amazing vacation

Review submitted: June 12, 2013   Date of arrival: June 1, 2013

For 12 years we were timeshare owners so that is how we vacationed. For the most part we could expect to get clean accomodations which were what we were most concerned about...nothing fancy but clean. The downside was that we had to stay wherever they were located...which were never in the places we wanted to vacation. We finally got wise and sold our timeshares. I have to admit it was a little scary booking our first vacation on-line and selecting a property from photos and because it was in an ideal location. Boy-oh-boy, did we hit the jackpot? Why didn't we sell our timeshare sooner. 3 doors in from the bay and just a few doors away from the beach once you cross Mission Blvd. Another bonus was that we only had to walk a few steps to get to a crosswalk crossing Mission Blvd. (That's always a concern when you have children.) Now let's get to the condo...The beds were so soft and comfy. The pillows were clean and fluffy. The furniture was just like home. Flatscreen TV's. Direct TV. Private lush couryard to enjoy our morning coffee. We felt so lucky to have found such a gem of a vacation spot that on the drive back home to Phoenix we called and booked for next year. We weren't about to lose our spot in heaven!

Fans for life!

Owners response: We were honored to host Julie & Ben and their 2 kids for this week, and so pleased to read this review. We really try to make our guests feel at home and are as responsive as possible to their requests. In this case, we feel privileged to know that Julie & Ben have booked for next summer. We now have 5 families who come back every summer to enjoy our Mission Bay Hideaway, some for two weeks. We feel like we're family, since we've watched their chidren grow over the years, and love to here them refer to our apartment as their "summer place". We look forward to Julie & Ben's return next year.
