Great location. Short walk to beach, well-equipped, comfy, and a lovely courtyard.

  • 5 of 5

We will be back! Loved being close to the beach. Thought we'd use all those beach toys at Mission Beach or the harbor and bikes but we just used the beach chairs and relaxed on the shore. Great apartment, well-stocked kitchen. Enjoyed reading in the courtyard. Nearby walk-up window restaurants and Belmont Park is full of fun things within a 5-7 minute walk. San Diego and Balboa Park were 10 minute drive away. Tijuana was about 25 minutes away and making a come-back (Visit the Gastropark food trucks, a 20 min. walk from Revolucion hubbub.). Great hosts. Far enough off the boulevard to be quieter than some areas.

Our son used the futon and TV in the living room (it became his bedroom), while we used the queen and TV in the bedroom. Comfy for the 3 of us. It wouldn't be real convenient to fold that futon daily, we just left it as a bed.

I can imagine whoever is renting nearby could make all the difference. With windows open, sound from the neighborhood carries, including plane take-offs from nearby San Diego airport. The charm is the sidewalk to the beach and bay, with houses facing it on both sides, but that also means hearing and seeing everyone's patio parties. It was pretty quiet while we were there, but some groups were renting closer to the beach and gathered on their patios ramping up for Friday evening (and probably Saturday evening) parties. Not a problem near us.

Loved the assurance of garage parking. No worries about having to park on the crowded streets or nearby parks overnight.

The courtyard is beautiful and shady. There are two apartments side-by-side with the homeowners upstairs. Laundry was handy too.

We loved this first visit to Mission Beach and would gladly come and stay again, for longer than a week to enjoy the area even more.

Thanks Bob and Tracy!

Beach house at mission bay

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay very much. The beach house was clean and very inviting. Tracy and Bob could not have been nicer. The beach house was furnished with everything a vacationer would need. Great stay.

Place was very nice and clean. Perfect location

  • 4 of 5

I really enjoyed my stay. Location was perfect and offered everything we needed. The only thing was the futon which I could not pull out by myself but Bob was very nice to help. The coffee maker needs replacing. Overall, had a wonderful stay. Would recommend it.

Owner's Response: Hi Jami, thank you for staying. I agree the futon is heavy and is more easily handled with 2 people. Thank you for letting me know about the coffee maker. I'll get a new one. We hope you can visit again soon😎

We couldn't have been happier with this place.

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect choice for our stay in Mission Beach and we couldn't have been happier. The location is fantastic - close to everything but far enough from Mission Blvd and the boardwalk to still be quiet. The unit is clean and well equipped. Everything was there including toys like bikes, paddleboard, kayaks and bbq all of which we made considerable use of. Plus, the on-site parking is a HUGE bonus as we discovered since parking is in very short supply in the area. An earlier poster mentioned that the pics didn't due the place justice and we agree. Thanks Tracy and Bob for a great, comfortable, and enjoyable stay. We'll be back for sure.
