Perfect beach stay

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

We loved our stay. The owners were so kind and welcoming. No stress. The property was an enchanting apartment with a cozy courtyard area. We really felt at home. Can't beat the location:steps to the bay, and 1 and half blocks to beautiful Mission Beach and boardwalk. Walk, bike, or skateboard for miles in the sunshine and salt air. The owners welcomed us to use the firepit, bikes, beach toys, boogie and surf boards, kayaks, beach chairs and coolers. So nice to not have to rent these. Loved having our own garage to park. Thank you for a great stay. We hope to return!! Also, Mission Beach Coffee house is a perfect breakfast stop for coffee and a Acai bowl, only a short walk. Our morning "go to" place. Highly recommend!

Perfect Little Place

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

My wife, daughter and I were in town for a wedding/short vacation in the Mission Beach area. We needed a place that was walking distance to all of our events as well as close to food and entertainment.

Bob and Tracy's place was perfect. Their house is within a few minutes walk to both the beach and bay sides of Mission Beach. Their place has a great yard area with lawn chairs, bikes to use, grills, fire pit and a place to wash your feet off after a day at the beach and much more. They have all sorts of chairs, beach towels and supplies one would need for a day at the beach and were very accommodating to our specific needs.

When looking for a place I was just hoping for a parking space in knowing the area from previous trips, access to a garage space was a huge bonus. There is a huge piece of mind knowing that there will definitely be a place to park each night when coming back late when we did need to drive somewhere.

Their place has two different units and it would be perfect for families/groups traveling together that want to have their own units to retire to at night. Their yard area is very well lit at night and I always felt very safe and secure each night. The pictures on the listing don't do it justice. We would definitely stay at their place again.

Thank you Tracy and Bob!

Our stay was amazing! We really enjoyed your place and its facilities. So nice to enjoy the bay with the bikes and to share some good time with our friend around the fire pit! You really let us use all your belongings to enjoy our days at the beach, thanks a lot that was awesome!

I had read the reviews, from prior bookings, and thought this would be a great place to stay... It was better than expected. The 1 Bedroom unit had everything that you would want, all untensils, extra bedding, towels, laundry facilities, bikes, fire pit, a very relaxing place to stay. Tracy was very accommodating for us and I am grateful that she was very understanding. The unit is close to all things that you would want to do. Sunshine thier dog was great too. The courtyard is well kept and enjoyable to just sit and talk, as you watch people go by and admire the tree house and the yard. This is definately a return trip location for us........... Loved it it very much. John and Francoise (Phx, Az}
