About the property

Unbeatable Location! 6 Bedroom/4 Bathroom with 10 beds & two sofa beds

Experience Ocean Views from two identical connected Mission Beach townhouses rented together to create the perfect spot for your family gathering or group get-togethers. This unique property includes 6 private balconies and a huge front deck for entertaining. There is ample parking for 6 vehicles. This home also has high speed Wi-Fi throughout the home with complimentary Netflix and premium cable.

You can't beat the location! The property is steps away from the ocean and boardwalk, across the street from quiet Mission Bay and just a few blocks from the dining and shopping district of Pacific Beach.

We supply tons of sand toys, beach chairs, boogie boards, soft top surf boards, beach towels, umbrellas, everything you and your family/friends will need to experience living by the beach. We even include several bikes.

The two townhomes are connected on the second floor kitchen level via two lockable doors in each dining room and via a common front patio with a relaxing sitting-down view of the ocean, surf, sand and boardwalk. This unique configuration is perfect for many vacationers. It works great for multiple families who want to vacation together, but may want some privacy as well. It is also appealing to groups with children as one side of the home could be the 'kid zone' with kid shows, toys, nap areas; and the other side could be the 'adult area' with adult beverages and visiting past 'bedtime' without toys scattered about!

The connected townhomes are each three levels, 2,300 square feet total.There are two living rooms, two full sized kitchens and two dining rooms. Each townhome also has its own washer and dryer, and its own garage. Listen to the waves from one of the 6 bedrooms, or check the surf from one of the 6 private balconies off of each bedroom. The property has vaulted, spacious ceilings and several common areas to allow your group to spread out.

The town-homes are fully furnished. There are a total of four flat screen high definition Smart TVs, complimentary Netflix and two full-sized sectional sofas.

The home sleeps 18-22. With 18 in beds - there are 2 California King Beds, 4 Queen Beds, 2 lower Full size bunk beds and 2 single twin bunk beds. Plus there is sleeping for 2 in each of the 2 living room queen size sleeper sofas.

Please note the home does not have air conditioning, but several fans are provided and the ocean breeze keeps the home cool.

Please be careful of scams on Craigslist and note that we do not list our property on Craigslist.

About Ciara & Barry

After living in Pacific Beach for 15 years and enjoying everything San Diego has to offer, we wanted to deliver this experience to vacationers. We are long-term San Diego residents, and this is a family-run vacation rental business.

Ciara & Barry purchased this townhome in 2013

Why Ciara & Barry chose Mission Beach

Scouring through hundreds of properties, we finally found the perfect spot. After planning several vacations ourselves we loved the location and flexibility of this home. It is perfect for family gatherings or special get togethers. This home provides 6 parking spaces, virtually unheard of! And it's walkable to everything you need.

What makes this townhome unique

Enjoying the people-watching on the beach, riding bikes along the boardwalk, surfing or swimming in the ocean just steps away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

5 of 5 stars

We had such a wondeful time at Whiting Manor. We had a large group, rangng from toddlers to seniors, and there was enough space for all; we even hosted a Christmas dinner, and there was enough cooking equipment to do that! The hosts of this house have everything, from sand toys to surf boards to 6 car parking capacity to plastic cups for toddlers. The home is lovely, but clearly meant to be lived in, i.e. no precious breakables, no white carpet, nothing that either small children or clumsy adults can break. Location is perfect, near the beach, near restaurants, near grocery stores, and yet so quiet at night, you can hear the waves. We loved it, and are already trying to figure out when we will return.

The property had incredible views, comfortable and came with plenty of kitchen and bathroom supplies

  • 5 of 5

We could not be more happy with our stay. Ciara and Barry were easy going and gave us more than enough kitchen and bathroom supplies. The house was gigantic and had plenty of room for the 13 of us to either all be together or break off into smaller groups. The views are incredible, and you're only a few steps away from the beach. We had a very relaxing, comfortable vacation thanks to Ciara and Barry. I will recommend this home to everyone!

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was an amazing trip. Sunny San Diego is our favorite place to vacation. And Mission and Pacific Beaches highlight everything we love about it. This rental unit was ideal for our large group (11 adults). Every morning we walked to breakfast, then set up camp on the beach ( which is just steps away), then walked to lunch, dinner, and then to a bar. This unit is very versatile and could accommodate a single family or multiple families vacationing together. Ciara (owner) was always prompt with a polite reply to any questions I had about our stay. There’s no way you would vacation here and not have a blast. Just bring your sunscreen!

Excellent location, well equipped and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

Our families thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Whiting Manor. It's a great location for walking and the beach. We needed to be a bit creative to fit as many people as possible into the particular bedroom configuration, but we had as many as 15 sleeping there at once. The facilities were well stocked. Bikes and boards were a welcome surprise.

Great place

  • 4 of 5

Nice place close to the boardwalk. Filled both sides with family which made it really nice to enjoy everyone company. Not many places can handle 24 people and still have room for everyone.

Beach cottages were wonderful. They were everything we hoped they would be.

  • 5 of 5

Overall experience was great. We filled the 2 adjoining cottages to the brim with 24 staying there for a family reunion. Loved the double living rooms, double kitchens. One side seemed to be the active side where family gathered to chat, the other side became the quieter side if you wanted to relax. We spent most of our time at the beach or other activities. Parking was sufficient and we found parking nearby for a rather large van. Cottages were well stocked with beach toys, bikes, linens and we used them all. For us it was the perfect place. One couple did have to sleep on the sofa hide a bed in one of the living rooms. With 6 bedrooms and 7 couples plus children, we had to be creative but made it work. It did indeed sleep 24. We even brought a Christmas tree and put it up on the main deck. Festive and fun. Thank you for a wonderful experience. Suzanne Brooking

Mission Beach is a lively and fun beach town with nearly two miles of oceanfront boardwalk. It is a popular beach spot for 20-somethings since there are plenty of bars in Mission Beach and in Pacific Beach. It is also a very family friendly area with activities such as biking, beach volleyball, boogie boarding, surfing, sport fishing and scuba diving.

This is a great location with so many fun activities to offer for anyone. Close to:

Disneyland & California Adventure (90 min), La Jolla (10 min), San Diego State Parks, San Diego Wild Animal Park (45 min), Legoland (45 min), SeaWorld (6 min), The Flower Fields of Carlsbad (30 min), Temecula Wine Country (60 min), San Diego Zoo (20 min), Del Mar Fairgrounds and Racetrack (20 min), Coronado Island (25 min), Birch Aquarium at Scripps Institute of Oceanography (10 min), Balboa Park (20 min)
