Mission Palms PRIVATE HOME W/ Garage Sleeps 12
Location,Location, Location! This home is 1-1/2 blocks to the beach/ocean, boogie boarding and surfing; 1-1/2 blocks to the bay and other water sports; 5 restaurants and 2 convenience stores within a block; and free bicycle, boogie board, skim board and beach chair rentals from San Diego Sunset. Could not have imagined a better location. We Ubered from the airport and didn’t need a car the whole time we were there. If you want to go anywhere else on Mission Beach, just grab a Bird or Lime electric scooter to get there easily in just a few minutes. Beware, though, policemen were on the boardwalk giving tickets to riders without helmets (rent one from Ray’s 2 blocks north) and scooter drivers without a drivers license. Those in our party under 16 rode bicycles. It seems the police don’t care about helmets if you’re riding a bike. San Diego Sunset employees were the absolute best and REALLY nice and helpful. I gave 4 stars instead of 5 because the house was clean, but could really use some updating, especially the outdoor furniture. It would have been great to have an umbrella, tables and chairs, and seating that was inviting. Also need some rugs at the doors to contain the sand. I’ve been told that most houses on the beach don’t have A/C, but consideration needs to be taken for those extra hot days with higher humidity and no breeze, like when we were there. Sleeping at night was hard because it was either hot and muggy or lots of outside noise if the windows were open. The fans just didn’t do the trick. Some portable A/C units that can be used only when needed would be great.

This is a great place to stay so close to the beach. You can see the waves from the porch and the bay is a short walk away. Looked just like the photos. Very clean. Beds were comfy towels were soft. Very convenient to borrow boogie boards. Good area with coffee and restaurants all around. Would definitely stay here again.

Perfect Mission Beach/Bay Location 3 BR W/ Patio
Wonderful house in the heart of mission beach. Stayed with 8 adults and all slept comfortably with plenty of space. Friendly college group in the downstairs unit. Walkable to many restaurants and the beach. Only issue was we received a noise complaint at 3 pm on Sunday afternoon of Labor Day weekend when we were just enjoying the patio and playing some games. A little crazy but that has nothing to do with the rental, just some disgruntled neighbors.

Beachfront Barefoot UNBELIEVABLE CONDO!!
What an amazing place! The pictures are true-to-form and we loved every minute of our stay. There were a few small issues (grills then hot water), but they were addressed right away (!!!) by the management team ... even over a holiday weekend. The neighbors seem to look after the place, which is only an issue if you plan on breaking the rules. It takes a bit to get used to strangers staring or stopping by (when the glass doors are open), but everybody was respectful and it makes sense that people would want to admire the amazing condo. Communication with the staff was top-notch.

Isthmus Vacation MULTI FAMILY W/ Roof-Top Deck
The house was great Its very close to the beach. You can see the water from the patio and dont have all of the foot traffic the front row has.
The house was clean and the AC worked very well. The beds were comfortable. The kitchens had all of the things we needed. Full size stove and oven, dishwasher and enough pots and pans to choose from.
Check in was easy. When I got to the house, the BBQ was out of propane. I called and it was delivered in less than 20 minutes. I was amazed at the quick service.
There is one downfall, the parking is tight. We had a Toyota Corolla and a Camry. The garage has two parking spots. One is shorter than the other. The Corolla barely fit on the shorter side. There is a third parking spot outside the garage doors. My sisters small SUV fit there easily.
I would try and book this house again when traveling to Mission Beach with all of the family.

Perfect Multi Family Beach/Bay Location w/Patio
Our summer reunion in San Diego required space for five families and a location in Mission Bay near the Beach and Bay. Our six day rental exceeded all of our expectations.
Unit 824 [3 bedrooms/2.5 baths]: The grandparents loved their master suite on the top floor with windows on two sides and an external balcony with ocean view. An internal spiral stairway to the middle level provides access to the “adult” kitchen, breakfast area and living room with cable HDTV and half bathroom. This became our private space. The top floor has two additional bedrooms (one with large outside patio with ocean views) with connected second bathroom for our adult couple and our older grandchildren.
Unit 822 [2 bedrooms/ 2.5 baths] Our grown children and their grandchildren loved this separate unit with two large bedrooms and bathrooms on the middle level and a different internal spiral stairway to the ground floor “kids and grandkids” kitchen, breakfast area and living room with cable HDTV and half bathroom. This living area opened directly onto the outdoor patio with BBQ grill, large dining table and chairs and an equally generous seating area around an outdoor gas fire pit. We had a great outdoor BBQ dinner our first night which was a great icebreaker. The interconnections between these separate units took a bit of time to sort out. An internal carpeted fire escape stairway to the outside provides access between the top floor and middle floor sleeping areas.
Front access from Ostend Court to Unit 822 is on the ground floor is through an entry gate to the outdoor patio. Front access to Unit 824 on the second floor is provided with an outdoor stairway. Side access to Unit 822 and 824 is from the alley parking is by a private walkway between buildings. All external doors have key codes for extra security.
Please note that Ostend Court is a walkway for people – it is not an alley for cars. Access to parking is by a two-way unnamed alley connecting Mission Blvd and Bayside Lane between Ostend Court and Santa Clara Place.
While we stayed in our “mystery” house with its multiple accesses and entries (which our grandkids loved), we enjoyed walking to the Bayside Walk for biking and playing in the grassy area along the bay; walking to the Mission Bay Sportcenter for sailing; walking to the ocean along Ocean Front Walk for boggy boarding and sand castle building; and eating at the local restaurants. We had rental cars for grocery shopping, driving to LEGOLAND and the San Diego Zoo; and for pickup and drop-offs at the airport. One of the highlights of our stay was a special 80th Birthday dinner at the nearby Catamaran Resort Hotel in a private dining room with view of the Bay and San Diego in the distance. This special event capped off our most memorable family reunion in years.
