Great Place

  • 5 of 5

This was the second year we stayed here with our two children and we will be back. The location is great, with both the ocean and bay within walking distance. It is also easy to hop on the 5 or 8 from here to explore the rest of San Diego. Also included are all types of toys - kayaks, boogie boards and bikes, as well as beach towels, chairs, and umbrellas. Tracey and Bob thought of everything, and they really are the nicest people.

Owner's Response: Thanks very much for your kind words. We always enjoy having families back year after year to see how much the kids grow. Its one of the best perks of being a host. Hope you can visit again next year too. All the best, Tracy and Bob

Fun at the beach

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Tracy and Bob for a wonderful stay! We love your peaceful yard and the location can’t get any better. Our most challenging decision was whether to go to the bay beach, the ocean beach or to Belmont Park. Gotta love the beach life :)

Thanks again for your hospitality and being so kind and patient with our boy Adam. He’s going to miss the beach and your dog Sunny.

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!
