Experience the laid-back lifestyle of Southern California with a stay in this beautiful three-bedroom, two-bath San Diego vacation rental with a private courtyard! Recently remodeled and equipped with all the comforts of home, this beachfront bungalow can comfortably accommodate up to eight guests.

Nestled within the heart of South Mission Beach, you'll appreciate the convenience of the location of this Mission Beach vacation rental! Within walking distance of the sandy beach, challenge your guests to a friendly game of beach volleyball and spend an afternoon having fun in the sun! Take a leisurely stroll and you'll find yourself by Mission Bay, a beautiful saltwater lagoon. The boardwalk, with a variety of restaurants and opportunities for shopping, is also easily accessible. The well-known San Diego Zoo is less than a 15-minute drive from your front door, and the kids are sure to appreciate spending a day there admiring the animals! Belmont Park and Sea World are also an easy drive from here.

This sprawling home is part of a larger, four-bedroom home. It offers plenty of space, making it perfect for groups or a family getaway. With a fully stocked kitchen, an open floor plan, and stunning views from every room, this home-away-from-home is your own personal oasis!

Whether you want to spend an afternoon curled up with your favorite book as you enjoy the sea breeze or grill some fresh fish for a fun BBQ, you'll fall in love with the outdoor patio. If you're wanting to eat your meal inside, the dining table has enough space for all of your guests. A breakfast bar in the kitchen offers additional seating options.

Located downstairs, the first bedroom has two twin beds. Upstairs, you'll find the master bedroom with a luxurious king-sized bed and the second bedroom with a comfy queen bed. With a full-sized futon in the family room, everyone will find a place for a good night's sleep! Enjoy your morning cup of coffee from the beautiful balcony that overlooks the ocean - maybe you'll get lucky enough to spot a dolphin or two jumping through the waves!

While this home has wireless Internet and TV, you might find yourself having too much fun to connect to technology! With provided bikes, boogie boards, and beach chairs, your stay will be full of adventure and activity. Your car will be safe and sound in the one-car garage. While the beach is undeniably beautiful, no one wants their home full of sand, so an outdoor shower helps to keep things clean. A coin operated washer and dryer are provided for your convenience so that you'll feel fresh and clean, no matter how long you choose to stay in this oceanside paradise!

If you're looking to escape from reality for a relaxing getaway, this Southern California vacation rental is the perfect spot for your next San Diego vacation!

    My family and I had the best time at this South Mission Beach House. It is exactly what you would envision as a traditional beach house. Even the decor is beachy! The location is perfect! There is plenty of street parking and you can walk/ride to several restaurants, bars, coffee house, and a market! Belmont Park is a couple blocks north!
    It is 25 steps from the beach. There are several activities within walking distance.
    if you are looking for a cozy, traditional beach house in an awesome location - this is a great one!
    We will be back!!

    Our family arrived here on March 14th to find the house next door filled with college kids smoking pot, drinking and generally partying loudly. Clearly there is not a policy in the neighborhood to rent only to people over the age of 21 or to less than two non-related family members. We notified Vacasa immediately of the situation and they said they would ask the manager of the property to tell their renters to be quiet. It didn't work. This went on until midnight. We finally called the police. My kids didn't feel safe. We were supposed to stay four nights but ended up leaving three days early. It ruined the first day of our vacation in San Diego. Furthermore, Vacasa, would not refund one dollar of the amount we had already paid in full for the four nights. They basically told is us it was spring break season and it was too bad for us! I doubt this will be a successful business model for Vacasa. I certainly will never use them again.

    My wife and I stayed here with our two toddlers for 17 days in February. Overall it was a great stay. The location was even better than expected, just a quick skip to the ocean which you can see from the front patio and balcony, very limited traffic on the alley way streets. The house had plenty of space for the 4 of us. One thing we liked about it was that the dining area and kitchen is downstairs and the upstairs is a comfortable living area - it was nice to keep the areas separate and have a place to chill at end of the night. The front porch had plenty of space and seating, my only complaint was the grill was a little weak and took some time. Overall the house was in good shape. Yeah it could use a little updating but its a beach house and worked very well for us. There is plenty close by, Belmont Park, liquor/drug stores, restaurants (both nice and causal). We would definitely stay here again.

    We stayed at this house for a week in late January. This was our 2nd trip to mission beach and our first time using vacasa. The neighbors across the sidewalk were college kids (nice kids) and the second they tried to party and turn up the volume someone came along and shut it down (not sure if it was a cop). It was quiet at night considering the proximity of all your neighbors on Mission Beach, which I appreciated having young kids. The property is kept up sufficiently, the only gripe I had was the king bed in the master was as hard as a rock and my daughters twin bed felt like she was going to sink to the floor. The garage is smaller, on par with all houses around this area and we couldn't get our Toyota Sienna in (van was too long). The good news is there's a public overnight parking lot about a block away on the other side of Mission Blvd. The property is close to so much. In addition to the beach and Belmont Park it was only a 15-20 minute drive from Seal Rock, the zoo, and the USS Midway Museum. I'd recommend it for any family vacation.

    We stayed during the weekend of 12/23 through 12/26. The first day it was very cold, raining and very windy. We wanted to go fishing/whale watching - but that didn't work out. We turned the heat on in the house - and it was pretty loud whenever it kicked on. We wish the fireplaces worked!

    Location is awesome! And we were able to park our big truck in the parking spaces just north of the house.

    Great place for seafood - Fish Market!! Hotel Del Coronado was beautiful and the Zoo was a lot of fun!

    Take the bikes for a ride! We rode all the way down to the pier....great time!

    Bummed the barbecue didn't work....but we had a back up plan in the kitchen.

    We would definitely stay here again!

    Property was just OK. Very dated and old. One shower did not work at all and there was NO HOT WATER during our entire stay. Management sent someone to fix on our second day but it was nothing was fixed. I would think they would make sure things are working properly before you rent this property. Taking cold showers was not a fun experience. Very disappointed and would never stay there again.

    We stayed here with three adult couples and a toddler. The child-proofing cupboard locks, stair gate, and crib were much appreciated little touches for our group, specifically. The distance from all the great attractions, restaurants, burrito shops, etc. in the Belmont Park area was excellent: a quick walk but far enough to filter the noise and crowds down the beach. There was construction going on at the unit next door (closer to the beach), but they were about as respectful of our experience as could be hoped for (they started at 7:30am, but put up tarps to prevent dust from coming over, and took down the tarps when they left so we could enjoy the sunset). It seemed like that project would be over soon, so I wouldn't worry about that if you are planning to visit anytime after May 2016. The bikes were rusty with flat tires, so don't get your hopes up there. Also, check the metal chairs outside before sitting on them, as they are being eaten away by rust and one collapsed on us. You see a lot of that around Mission Beach, as the salty air wrecks havoc on metal.

    PARKING: We were able to get a Crystler Town and Country mini van into the garage with some help from a friendly neighbor, but it was tough. Anything larger than that and you should get the damage protection on your rental car ;) There is a public parking lot a block away that was super handy, especially when we arrived before 4pm (check-in time) and wanted to hang at the beach before we could get into the house. There were always spots available there, except that you can't park there between 8am and 10am. Keep that in mind if your car doesn't fit in the garage.

    Besides those few minor things, we had a great time and would rent this spot again. It was clean, comfortable, and had just about everything we need.

    This was a great location with great views of the ocean and you are close enough to hear the waves crashing. Plenty of space for a big family or two families if you wanted to do that. Just pray the college kids next door do not throw a party, the windows are like paper and you will not sleep until the party is over!!!

    Being a first timer to San Diego, I felt this Mission Beach house was a perfect central location to everything! We LOVED the location of the house being steps away from the beach and was situated in a quite area with walking distance to restaurants. With the 4 bedroom, 3 bath, we were able to comfortably fit 8 people. The house in general was a nice layout. The bathrooms were a tad small, but the living space upstairs was a nice gathering place. All around we would go back!

    This spot was perfect for our family to stay. It was just steps from the beach, we could go back to the house for lunch and naps for the kids while leaving our stuff (minus valuables of course) on the beach and still being able to keep an eye on it. Up stairs can get a little warm so just make sure to keep the fans going and windows open for the breeze to blow through. Over all pretty quite area given the busyness of the surrounding area. We did have some neighbors in the adjoining unit who were pretty rowdy during the day but calmed it down at a respectable hour.

    This property was very comfortable. We were able to fit a Hyundai Tucson rental in the garage (small SUV). You can watch the sunset from the patio and we grilled a lot on the patio which was great after long days at the zoo, Legoland, and Sea World. It seems that weekends might be a more 'party time' but was fairly quite during the week. There was a mix of young and old which was nice. We also liked the fact that you can walk to a small market to buy supplies. We took my 60 year old parents and 10 year old and everyone enjoyed themselves! The washing machine is outside and shared by another property, but it was nice to have and was clean. Also while upstairs gets warm during the day if you don't leave the windows and door open, it was perfect sleeping temperatures during the night with the windows open. Property was very clean and had everything we needed!

    It was a lovely lovely vacation rental and easily accommodated two families with plenty of room to breathe. It could get a bit warm upstairs even with the fans going but once the sun went down it was fine but because we needed to keep the windows open for the breeze it could get a bit loud with the people and airplanes flying over.

    We stayed here for a week and it was great!! The house was perfect for my family. The only even slight issue we had was parking. The garage is very short and would not fit my Yukon or my sisters Honda. We ended up parking right down the road which was only a two minute walk so that wasn't bad. Finding parking there was difficult at times. They also do street sweeping several times a week so you can't be parked there form 8-10 in the morning. I completely recognize this is not an issue with Vacasa at all. We would MOST DEFINITELY stay there again!! I would recommend putting some basic parking instructions in the binder at the property just to help you renters. We luckily met some of the very friendly neighbors that gave us the run down on parking. I am excited to return to this great property!
