About David Catalino

Grew up in New York State. Attended University of San Diego School of Law and fell in love with San Diego. This beach house started as a family venture with my mother and sister in 2002 and we still take care of all details ourselves.

David Catalino purchased this townhome in 2002

Why David Catalino chose Mission Beach

This beach in South Mission (Lifeguard Tower 10) is the widest and longest beach area in San Diego (South Mission Beach

to Pacific Beach). There are volleyball courts and room for any beach game you want to play. You can also find an area of sand all for yourself and not be bothered.

The property faces south and gets sun on the patio all day long. Sunsets are visable all year long from the beach as the sun sets to the west over the water.

What makes this townhome unique

Large patio to grill and enjoy the sun and your family. Mainly families with young children stay in this area of South Mission Beach which is quiet, but the action of the roller coaster is only a short walk away.

Great location in South Mission Beach. Nice patio, well equipped kitchen. Bikes, beach chairs, boogie boards, and beach toys shared with upstairs unit. Not luxurious, but comfortable and clean. Great place to stay for a good price!!

Had a wonderful stay in this beach house. Owner is extremely accommodating and there for you, if you need anything. Location could not be better! Quiet neighborhood, friendly people. Would recommend this home to my friends and family. Looking forward to my visit there again next year.

A GEM BY THE BEACH

  • 5 of 5

I don't know where to start. I could not have picked a better house for the price and location. We are from Washington DC and travelled with our Arizona friends. We stayed 5 nights and that allowed us to explore the sites which are beautiful. The house was perfect for 5 persons. It was clean and comfortable. After a day of sightseeing we enjoyed the terrace ..a glass of wine and a home cooked dinner. The whole stay was so relaxing..Loved the walks on the beach..The whole area was beautiful.Do not miss the S D Zoo, Midway, Balboa Park..La Jolla etc...and by the way..parking our large SUV was no problem..David is extremely nice and accommodating. I highly recommend this beach house.We had a great stay with our friends..

Good location and responsive owner

  • 3 of 5

After staying for 8 weeks, and enjoying the area and location of unit, these are my reviews.

Noises,...the remarks from Owner in overview, are very accurate. The unit upstairs sleeps up to 10 people and when rented, You do hear inside movement throughout the morning, day and nights. The planes are constaint and do interfere with telephone connections...all no fault of the owners, unless better insulation put in! Owner was very responsive to day to day concerns, when they occurred.

Owner's Response: In January and February of 2018 a group of home owners in South Mission Beach complained to the San Diego Airport Authority and obtained changes to the flight routes. The planes now take off farther to the south and the noise has diminished. You will note the difference when you return for your January 2019 reservation.
