About David Catalino

Grew up in NY State, and came to San Diego for law school. Love San Diego and been here 30 years. Bought this property in 2002 with my mother and sister and it is a family operation and we still take of all the details ourselves.

David Catalino purchased this townhome in 2002

Why David Catalino chose Mission Beach

Big deck that faces south and gets sun all day. Short walk to the biggest beach in San Diego (Lifeguard Tower 10). Beach has volleyball courts, and room for any beach game you can think of but also private spots for sunning.

What makes this townhome unique

Quiet area with mainly families and small children. Teenagers can find the action of the roller coaster by a walk or bike ride north. New restaurant Draft near roller coaster has great food and 40 beers on tap. Upstairs is Cannon Ball for sushi and other seafood, drinks and sun.

Cleanliness needs more attention. Had two issues and the owner was prompt in fixing them.

  • 3 of 5

After getting through some problems, we enjoyed the location. Close to ocean. Next door rental was noisy with partying. It was spring break. Rentals are very close to each other. Can walk to board walk. Older rental with some parts remodeled. Good selection in kitchen/bikes/ beach chairs to use. It's a beach house. Overall everyone had a very nice time after some issues we're fixed.

Looking forward to staying here again!

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend staying at 720 Balboa Ct. if it's available! Our family had a wonderful time! The location is fantastic! The patio faces south and has sun on it all day long. We enjoyed starting our day with the sunrise and ending with the sunset after we grilled out with the large grill provided on the patio. There are plenty of chairs for everyone to enjoy the patio. I loved this location as we were sandwiched between the bay which is quiet and protected to walk my grandson in his stroller out to the small park or we could take our power walk along the ocean up to Pacific Beach and enjoy all the shops and gathering of sand dollars off the beach. The kitchen is huge in this home and we made breakfast every morning for everyone (several young men who eat a lot!) and we were all able to sit around the table inside while it rained a few times outside. There is a full size washer and dryer to make the stay easy. Great food is within a short walk or you can drive a few minutes north for even more shops and food. There is the Mission Market which we visited frequently a short walk away with everything! We needed baby wipes and they have them! Ralph's is a short drive north. Every bedroom is roomy and we had plenty of space for all of us including a baby. It is bright and cheery and comfortable for everyone to gather in the living room. There all sorts of toys and bikes to use in the garage. This home is so easy to get to from the airport and yes it is in the flight path of the planes, but you enjoy watching them and become used to them after a day. They do not fly at night! The neighborhood is absolutely adorable and friendly. The locals are wonderful and the guests staying in the homes around us were great to visit with. My parents enjoyed it, my sons enjoyed it and my grandson enjoyed it. I truly cannot say enough about this place as we had a wonderful time making lasting memories and hope to have future stays if everyone's schedule allows! There is literally something for everyone. Some shopped, some went to the beach or the bay, out to eat, visited Mexico and the San Diego Zoo. You will be planning your return! If you have up to 10 people you want to put together comfortably, this is your place to stay. If you have more, you may even want to rent out the lower unit....we are thinking about it for next time when we may have a few more with us! Thank you for a wonderful and memorable week!

Spacious rental steps from the beach

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our group of 7. Enough space and bathrooms for everyone to spread out. And the unit is in a great location! Steps from the beach, close to Belmont park, and a 15-20 minute drive away from downtown. The unit comes with everything you need to cook meals at home and came stocked with beach toys/gear. Unit has two parking spots but one is really small. Probably couldn’t fit a large SUV or van. I would recommend this place for anyone interested in Mission Beach.

Amazing beach rental

  • 4 of 5

We shared this house with four couples and it was just about perfect. Well laid out, clean and a great location on Mission Beach. Beds were comfortable. Nice big kitchen for cooking. The deck was amazing. The two parking spots are tiny and challenging, but ok once you try them a couple of times.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed our beach house. It is a comfy place with a deck near the water without high end finishes and electronics. However kids can jump on the couches and it is all good for fun and beach adventures. Thanks, Dave

Quaint cottage. I was surprised how roomy it was.

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect. It is close to the beach which is very large. There are a couple of restaurant and a market a couple blocks away. We found everything we needed. It does sleep 10 comfortably. I would highly recommend it for a family getaway.
