About Elfi Segal

I have been a part time resident of this community for 30 years and a full time resident for the last 10. There is a charm to this area like no other -- besides its beauty, it is a functional community in which to enjoy the outdoors. If you love the beach life, I think this is the BEST beach -- and we have two of them -- one on the Ocean side and one on the Bay side. Come see what I am talking about -- you will always want to return.

Elfi Segal purchased this cottage in 1989

Why Elfi Segal chose Mission Beach

This property is classic Mission Beach -- small scale and unassuming yet charming.A large outdoor space (by Mission Beach standards) that is fully enclosed, a short stroll to Ocean or Bay -- about 100 yards in either direction, fully equipped with the indoor essentials, and, essential beach toys such as a kayak, 2 stand up paddle (SOP), boogie boards, beach chairs, etc. Two bedrooms with queen size beds, TV, cable, wi-fi, parking, and convenient to all major San Diego attractions.

What makes this cottage unique

Try a Staycation! Our area is popular with San Diego residents as well and they may live some miles from the beach. Come stay AT the beach -- no commuting, no parking hassles, and the sheer convenience of having all possessions you need, each day, without packing and unpacking.

Cozy, convenient and a great value!

  • 5 of 5

So.Mission Beach Cottage was located conviently in the heart of Mission beach... walking distance to the bay where you could paddle board, canoe or just build sand castles. A great view for the evening Sea World fireworks show. If your feeling more risky in the other direction if the full fledge waves and sand volleyball. Elfi was extremely welcoming and went out of her way to make everything perfect. A short walking distance to the Belmont park, eating and a host of entertainment. The cottage met our every expectations and had two convenient parking spots, This was one of our best decisions we made on our San Diego vacation. Thank you Elfi!!

Perfect for family fun

  • 5 of 5

It is perfectly located between bay and ocean side. Very clean and well equipped. The beds are super comfy. Not lots of inside kitchen/dining room space but outside has plenty of room. Besides who wants to eat inside with such a lovely outdoor yard ( great for the kids since it’s fenced in). They have plenty of fun toys for us to use (kayak, paddle 2 kids life vest - double check with Elfi if needed). Elfi is a great host, (she found a pack’n’play for our 1 y.o. That was all set up at our arrival) and she was very helpful when needed. The house is close to the main road but it was surprisingly not car noisy. It is the planes that created most of the noise but that is the same for all over mission bay. Overall great rental. Thx

Wonderful vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this 2 BR, 1 Bath cottage for 5 nights the last week in August and it is in the perfect spot between So Mission Bay and the Mission Beach. In a span of a few hours, we would hang out at the beach to catch some rays, then go back to the cottage and grab some lunch on the peaceful patio, then to the bay side for some kayaking and paddle boarding. The cottage was clean and the palm trees and other greenery in the patio really made the cottage peaceful. We we also used the beach chairs and went biking but we had to take turns since there was only 1 bike (we only wished there was another bike so that 2 of us could have biked together!). The added bonus of having 2 parking spots was also great. What we truly appreciated though was the kayak and the paddle boards - it was great to use them esp since we hadn't tried it before!! The day before we left, we found a surprise at our door from Elfi - 2 cinnamon buns and they were delicious. We would definitely return to this cottage for another vacation.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is cute, clean, and convenient! The location between the bay and beach was great for all of our activities. Elfi was wonderful and made sure we had everything we needed for our stay. It was great having the kayak, boogie boards, paddleboards, beach chairs, towels, etc., available to us. The large outdoor patio was our favorite part. We would definitely stay here again.
