Stayed 5 days at this condo on Mission Beach in mid March 2016. The owners were very nice to deal with and very accommodating. Awesome location, right on the beach and boardwalk, and walking distance to Belmont Park, restaurants and bars. Best part is the huge ground floor patio overlooking the beach which includes a BBQ. Plenty of room to lounge around or play cards on the patio table. We thought it might be too noisy being on the boardwalk, but it wasn't at all. We enjoyed the people-watching. Can't go wrong with this location. Cheers.

The house was very nice and in a great neighborhood. Very close to the tram and bus stops so you really do not need a car and don't have to bother with paying for parking. It is on a hill so, if you're not in good shape, walking would be tough. The only downside is the check out time was 10 am...a little too early for me. I ended up having to go hang out at the airport for five hours to wait for my flight (can't go anywhere but the airport dragging my luggage).
I made reservations for September 13-16th. Unfortunately, I had to cancel, so I notified the property on August 7th. (28 days in advance) of me cancellation. They refused to refund ANY amount of monies already paid. I lost over $650. I might as well just gotten robbed. Never again, will I use this company, and I definitely will be leaving a very negative review!
All in all we loved this place, it was well furnished, very well stocked with linens and kitchen supplies, big screen tv, comfortable beds in both bedrooms and close to the beach. There are two bikes in the garage for exploring and having a garage to keep your car safe is always a bonus. The location is convenient, it's a block and half from a nice beach and there are plenty of cute cafes within walking distance. The only drawbacks, it lacks AC which it could really use as even with the windows open and the ceiling fans going it was warm at night. And it's noisy at night, it's next to a parking lot that was occupied with people partying every night and Saturday morning there was a car wash event there that stared at 7 AM. Also the area is a little sketchy at night, during the day it was great. The whole area seems to be in transition and is becoming more upscale but it's not quite there yet. Also, the standard check out time of 10 AM is way too early for most travelers, we were out late the night before and a
Nice place, it's bigger inside than the pictures indicate. Great location, just a two or three minute walk to the beach -- just be sure to stay to the right of the checkered flag unless you have a surfboard. All the beach gear in the garage was greatly appreciated! Nice outside shower too. The house is on the less populated side of the beach, which is very nice but the trade-off is that it's closer to the airport. Because of the noise we didn't use the upper deck. Bring earplugs if you go to bed before 11:30 or want to sleep in! After the first day we were pretty used to the sound -- which does seem to ease off through mid day, and is drowned-out by the waves when on the beach. Even with the noise, we preferred this location over the crowded beaches near the public parking lot. A few notes about the house: there isn't a master bathroom, but the shared bathrooms are nice and big. We've rented many homes before, and this is the first one that hasn't had any basic condiment items in the refrigerator
We ran into some problems with the fridge not working, which was a huge pain and one of the fans which is badly needed as the condo does not have AC did not work but was replaced. Obviously the refrigerator was not replaced and we had to put our food in a cooler so it wouldn't go bad...they were however accommodating in giving us a small discount. It is a little challenging to find and parking in the garage was a bit of a chore. We had a Toyota Highlander so a much smaller car would be more convenient. I enjoyed having towels, shampoo, detergent trash bags and toilet paper provided. They don't refill those things but we stayed for 3 full days and did not run out. We had two adults and three teenagers. They did not provide beach towels which would have been nice to know. We tried looking at Target but they were all sold out. We stayed first week of August. They did however have chairs, lots to choose from, a beach umbrella and boogie boards (about 4 of them). On
We were very satisfied with out rentals .. The house is very well maintained and the pictures were very accurate . The location for us was ideal as we didn't have to access the freeway at all to get our destinations . The house is super close to grocery store and several restaurants.The neighborhood is very quiet and safe. Our stay was very enjoyable but I want to offer a few suggestion to make for even better experience for next guest. I would suggest a couple of complimentary welcome bottles of water. We checked in very late at night since our flight was delayed and were really thirsty by the time we arrived. A broom and swifter jet or mop in case of spills and Coffee filtersas well. Overall our stay was AMAZING, location ideal and I would definitely recommend this house to anyone interested .. We would love to rent it again next year :)) Kathleen
