Overview

About the property

2 bedroom/2 bath that is a few short steps to the beach

This Mission Beach house is a few short steps from the beautiful Mission beach. It is directly behind the oceanfront homes. The beautiful thing about Mission beach is you are also about a football field to the bay as well for paddleboarding or kayaking or boating or whatever. The home is about a five minute walk to the mission beach roller coaster and all the restaurants around it. It is about a mile to Pacific Beach and all the restaurants and clubs that it has to offer.

The home has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. There is 1 queen in one bedroom and 2 queens with an attached bathroom in the 2nd bedroom. We have direct TV and high speed internet at no cost. The house does have AC. There is a large, open patio right on San Luis Obispo Place great for enjoying dinner with your friends/families outside!

We have a 7 person speed boat that can be rented at $400/day. We can bring the boat to you so your family can enjoy an amazing day on the water. You can explore the bay and ocean, giving you spectacular views of the downtown skyline, Coronado bridge, historic USS Midway, and the Marina. Please inquire if you are interested.

There are MANY attractions close by if you decide you want to venture from the house(most dont). We are within 5 miles from the Gaslamp District, Sea World, Old Town San Diego, Balboa Park, The San Diego Zoo, Hillcrest, Little Italy, Charger games, Padre games and the San Diego Convention Center.

The home itself is a duplex that is a few short steps to the beach. I stay here when its not rented and I LOVE it. It has two bedrooms and two bathrooms(great to have the second bath). There is a queen bed in the first room and a queen and double bed in the second room. The second room has a shower bath while the first one is a shower only. It has great internet throughout and TV's in every room with cable remotes. It always has clean sheets and plenty of towels for the home and the beach.

I own other vacation rentals and I take my tenants stays VERY seriously. I want to make your stay great and do all I can to provide all you need for the duration of your stay.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

This place is located in a good spot, good atmosphere and it was very clean. I would recommend it to any family. There is noise that comes from upstairs but other than that it’s a beautiful spot. Thank you Ferrari for this experience.

I love this spot!

  • 5 of 5

This was my fourth or fifth time staying here, and I've loved it every time. Chloe is a very responsive host, and the proximity to the beach and the bay can't be beat. I will be back!

Great place, great location!

  • 4 of 5

We just got home from our fist visit to San Diego and we loved it! This unit is literally steps away from the beach. You can sit out on the patio and hear the roar of the ocean (you'd be able to see a glimpse too, if not for a huge palm in the way ;) ). You are just a few walking blocks away from Belmont Amusement Park (but not close enough to hear it), Starbucks, rental shops, and a quickie mart. You could walk a little further or take a quick drive to Swell Coffee Shop (they make coffee the RIGHT way - just be prepared for a little wait, but it's worth it) and Ralph's grocery store. The location also grants you easy access to the freeways to get to all the fun places San Diego and the surrounding area have to offer. It's 30-40 minutes to LEGOLAND, 15-20 to the Zoo, and 10-15 to downtown/the harbor. The beach was amazing - we saw a family of dolphins playing just off shore for several hours and found more sand dollars than I've ever seen! And the unit sits far enough away from the Belmont and Pacific Beach ends that it wasn't nearly as crowded. What we loved most: location (all reasons mentioned above, plus that it's NOT in the airport flight path so it was relatively quiet), garage parking, outdoor shower, washer and dryer in unit, owners attentiveness (Chloe was on it when there was something we needed - thank you!). Things that were challenging: Kitchen is very small and doesn't have a lot of pots/pans - but it's do-able; hall bath has no counter space and the other bath has very limited counter space - just fyi; garage is normal size, but access is off of an alley and a truck was parked behind entrance most of our stay - so it makes getting in and out very hard. I would recommend the smallest rental car you can manage to make this easier. The only reason we give it 4 stars instead of 5: it is a lower unit and you never know who is going to be above you. We stayed for a week and had one quieter group, and one really loud group above us. I would consider renting the upper unit next time. Also, I'm a bit of a clean freak, and while the unit was tidy and bedding/baths were very clean, it could use a really good deep clean of the windows, baseboards, dusting of surfaces, etc. All in all, we have no regrets and were very happy with our stay!

It was very nice. Cozy and close to the beach as listed

  • 5 of 5

This was our first vrbo and we were nervous about it. After we got owners number and she freely texted back and forth we were feeling much better. But it was just fine. If you cook it was a little tight but expected for a beach house. Parking in garage was a plus for the price. The beach and locals were a pleasure. Some brochures about things to do might be nice. Overall great experience and nice owner

Overall decent property; could use some improvements

  • 3 of 5

I've been torn about what to write in a review and waffled back and forth on the rating. There are things we really enjoyed, but certain improvements would make a big difference.

Pros:

- Location is excellent--very close to beach.

- Layout and functionality of unit is nice--great for two couples.

- Unit has been updated fairly recently.

- Owner responded quickly to reservation request and responded fairly quickly to text reporting two issues during our stay--one issue was resolved promptly.

- Ability to park in garage is a big plus. Street parking is hard to come by.

- There were some beach towels and beach chairs, but only two chairs were in proper working order.

Cons:

- BIGGEST ISSUE -- the terms of the listing are deceiving. This was my first HomeAway reservation, so I'm not 100% positive if this issue relates to HomeAway or the owners. In the later stages of booking the reservation, I had the unpleasant surprise that I had to either agree to an additional refundable deposit charged to my credit card (significantly larger than the deposit disclosed in the listing) or buy equivalent damage insurance for an extra cost. The lack of transparency of this extra deposit is unacceptable.

- The cleanliness was so-so at best; unit looked okay at a glance, but it's in need of a deep clean. Immediately upon arrival, I took my shoes off and walked around in new white socks; after a short while, I noticed my socks were now brown on the bottom, and we saw crumbs underneath some furniture. Granted, the same will happen at my own house, but when I'm paying a cleaning fee at a rental, I expect a little better. One shower curtain was nasty with mold/mildew at the bottom. I texted the owner, and she said she would bring one. I understood it would be the same day, but it didn't happen (granted, I texted a little over 24 hours before check out, maybe she was waiting until we left). Most of the bath towels were older; some had a smell of mold.

- The kitchen is only somewhat stocked with necessities. We chose this unit over a hotel so we could cook our own meals. We were able to do so, but it was a challenge--few pans/bowls for cooking, utensils were weird (lots of forks but only a few spoons), no spatula for flipping eggs/pancakes, dull knives.

Overall, we had a pleasant stay. I would probably consider this property again (with lower expectations), but I will also shop around. Owners need to get after the cleaners and disclose extra deposit.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback! I appreciate what you said about the deposit during checkout. The refundable damage deposit is an option added on VRBO and if it is misleading I definitely want to change it to make it clearer for future guests. The shower curtain was changed right after you checked out. I apologize that is was not in good shape upon arrival and for the confusion on when it would be put in the home. I will be reaching out to my cleaning team to make sure this unit is attended to more carefully. If you do decide to come back, please reach out to me and we will be sure to take care of you and your family!
