Fun in the sun with this family-friendly beach condo. It feels like one home as there is only one other condo in the building. It is one of the few that have a garage for storage of car, bikes, boogie boards, etc. The garage is 2 car but fits ONLY one large vehicle.

This condo is spacious (about 1600 square feet), very light, well maintained with newer furniture and bedding. The top floor with family room, kitchen and 2 decks are where the families will enjoy total privacy and views throughout the beach area. The waves of the Pacific Ocean can be seen from the decks. The large bedrooms and 2 baths are on the second floor for the late sleepers!

We have it totally furnished with all 'toys for both adults and children. (DVD players, DVD movies, computer, toys, boogie boards, bikes (children bikes on request), surfboard, beach chairs & towels. COMPUTER WITH HIGH SPEED WIFI. For the cook there is a gas bbq, all small & large appliances. Coffee, spices,& more are supplied.

For the little ones, we have a pack n play, strap on high chair and an umbrella stroller.

We are located about five homes from the Pacific Ocean and five blocks from Belmont Park. Families can walk to restaurants, stores, and amusement park.

Sandi's April visit

  • 5 of 5

Not on the beach but almost. Great set-up. Friendly neighbors. Have been visiting SD/Mission Beach for 25+ years, and this is the first VRBO property that we'll come back to. Sherry is a great hostess, and very easy to work with. Unit is very well stocked with towels, linens, utensils and even some beach toys.

Awesome vacation place

  • 5 of 5

The location of this house was perfect for our family vacation. We loved being so close to the beach and bay. Joanne was great to work with as a host... always available and helpful and accommodating. It was nice to have the bikes, boogie boards etc. available.

There is parking for only 1 car, so

it was a little tricky moving a second car around to find parking spaces in the public lots or on the streets with hour restrictions, but doable. We had a wonderful week in San Diego.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. Glad the parking situation worked out. It takes a little planning and there is one public parking lot that allows overnight parking within about 1/4 mile. Joanne

Fun at the beach

  • 4 of 5

We have been staying in Mission Beach for our summer family vacations since the early '90s. We enjoyed our stay at this condo and liked the location. This condo has lots of space for families with children. We appreciated the beach chairs, boogie boards and bicycles etc. So nice to not have to pack these items for our vacation as well as other supplies that were provided. There are ocean views from each balcony. We had great views of the Sea World fireworks from the balcony every night. This condo is within walking distance to shopping, restaurants and Belmont Park. Thursday night is discount night at Belmont Park (sign up on their website for discount coupons). There is no outdoor shower to rinse off when returning from the beach so we took the outside balcony hose off the kitchen and ran it through the balcony drain down to the alley so that the family could rinse off before entering the condo. It really helped so that we were not bringing sand into the condo. If you are not familiar with Mission Beach you will hear the airplanes, people partying and noise in the alleys everywhere but if you overlook these things you will love the beach vibe, location and many family friendly fun things to do. Properties like this one are your typical beach house in Mission Beach (for the price). No matter where you stay you will still deal with noise etc. Parking in Mission Beach is always an issue. We were able to park a Tundra in the garage with no problem. I would definitely stay here again. Thanks for a great vacation Joanne!

Perfect for our long family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from staying 11 nights and the house and location were perfect. We had more family stay a handful of nights at another location just two streets away. While their house looked nicer from the pictures, they paid a lot more for the same size house and we liked ours so much more. Everything we needed was there - bikes, chairs, sand toys, etc. Also, we appreciated the house being well stocked with things like paper towels, trash bags, soap, shampoo, etc. The one and only complaint we have was the master bedroom is right above the garage/alleyway and we were woken up a number of mornings by people rummaging through garbages for recyclables. However, this wouldn't stop us for choosing this location for our next San Diego vacation.

Perfect for family beach get-away

  • 5 of 5

We were in San Diego in early April w/ our 5 children (ages 7 to 15). I don't know if this happens year-round, but at that time the lifeguards wanted swimmers and boogie-boarders in front of the main lifeguard station at Belmont Park. This condo is only a few blocks north of that. If it were farther north it would've been a long walk for our little kids. In the garage there are several bicycles of various sizes and conditions (all rideable), four boogie boards (nice ones), and beach toys for building sand castles (we bought our own frisbee). With all of that our minivan fit comfortably in the garage, but I would not recommend a vehicle any larger. A Tahoe could fit in there tight, but a Suburban could not. The condo is very comfortable - bedding and furnishings, LCD TV and DVD player in living room and master bedroom (MBR TV has Netflix), WiFi Internet access. The kitchen is recently remodeled, and there is a nice gas grill on the kitchen balcony, which we enjoyed. The rest of the condo shows some age but had zero impact on why we were there. Our primary desires were comfort and easy access to the beach at a good price, and this condo filled all our check boxes.

Best Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about this cozy beach house style getaway in Mission Beach. It is so close to the beach we could walk down everyday, avoiding all major roads. The beds were comfy, the new bathroom in the master suite was an added bonus. The kitchen was newly renovated and well stcoked for all of our cooking and BBQing! Our family had the most wonderful stay! Thankyou so much Joanne, for everything!
