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 kayaks, 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.

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.

Awesome place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We looked for awhile to find a place to rent by Mission Beach, I couldn't find many places with a lot of reviews and then I came across Elfi's place and read the reviews. I loved what I was reading and let me tell you they were exactly right!

We have one child and wanted to be close to the beach within walking distance. A very small walk either to the west or the east brings you to that. If you want to jump in the waves or boogie board head west and if you want calm water to paddle board head east!

The patio was perfect to sit, relax, play games or read a book.

This house is a quick drive to pretty much anywhere in San Diego.

This was the most relaxing vacation I've ever had.

Elfi is a sweetheart and very accommodating. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a place on Mission Beach.

Thanks Elfi!

Perfect Beach Home!

  • 5 of 5

What a great beach house! My husband and I stayed at Elfi's beach cottage with our two small children earlier this summer at the end of June. This house was perfect for our needs, and very family friendly. My husband's first comment was that it was even better than the pictures shown. Elfi was so sweet and communication was a breeze. We were able to park our car for the week, and get around on our bike rentals, or simply walk. It's quiet at night, with local traffic only, as the home is south of Belmont Park. Bay/beach and park are very close within walking distance. We will definitely be returning next summer! You will not be disappointed with this rental!
