  • Bay Front Beauty

    This unit is beautiful inside, and was spotless. Everything is brand new and it’s one of the few rentals on Mission Bay that we could find that has air-conditioning, which made a huge difference for sleeping. Location is incredible, in the center of everything. We found the bayside to be so much nicer than the ocean side, too. This is a true 5-star unit and we can’t wait to return next summer.

  • Mai Tai Beach House

    Our kids had Spring Break recently and we booked a rental through San Diego Sunset Vacation Rentals. We had mixed feelings about booking with them because of some of the negative reviews, but these guys were great! The staff was responsive to our needs and were available 24/7 if we needed anything. The property we stayed in was Mai Tai Beach House right on the bay. Great location and property was clean and nicely remodeled. Will definitely use San Diego Sunset for all of our vacation rental needs when visiting Mission Beach in the future.

  • Bay Front Jewel

    We have vacationed in Mission and Pacific Beach the last several years and Bay Front Jewel is by far our favorite rental. It is beautifully decorated yet comfortably casual. Bay Front Jewel is by far the best location of all our summer rentals. Its location, on the bay side, is both quite AND connected to “what’s happening” at the beach. There are both casual and high-end restaurants and stores within half a block and great nightlife to boot. The assortment of good restaurants are within a short walk or bike ride in Pacific Beach. The patio and fire pit are a wonderful place to relax after a day of fun in the sun, playing in the surf on the beach side or paddle boarding on the bay side. All this…and two parking spaces. We’ll be back.
