This cozy home is just steps from the ocean. No doubt the majority of your time will be spent lounging on the beach in all of the perfect sunny California climate. But feel free to take a break from incredible beach days with any of the fantastic attractions nearby.

Crisp white walls and hardwood floors are subtly accented by colorful decor and furnishings, creating a wonderful homey space for you and your companions.

With amenities like boogie boards, high-speed wireless internet, a shared (coin-operated) washer and dryer, and a full kitchen, this unit offers all of the comforts of home - with an ocean breeze!

This lovely rental is the upper level of a duplex, and has two bedrooms and one bathroom.

(Along with the other part of the duplex, the entire property can be rented as Ensenada at the Beach - Full Duplex.)

If you choose not to explore Mission Beach's amazing restaurants, you'll have a full kitchen complete with major appliances, a microwave, toaster, coffee maker, and blender at your disposal! There is also a gas grill to make delicious kebabs, or burgers for the kids.

Play games or eat across the natural wood dining room table for four before heading into the living room for a quiet night in.

The living room offers fantastic natural light, and a comfy couch. Watch a show on the flatscreen cable TV and slip into vacation mode.

Learn to surf and wakeboard at the Mission Bay Aquatic Center, or rent a sailboat to see Sail Bay the right way. Mosey down the boardwalks, fish, and shop on the pier. Seaport Village and The Gaslamp Quarter also offer amazing shopping opportunities and delicious eateries to replenish and refresh. Sea World and Balboa Park are just a few miles away. See the animals at the San Diego Zoo, or browse through any of the amazing museums.

The fridge has rust on the side, as well as the stove. Looking through the small window in the loft you could see a rooftop deck, cool uhh. It was padlocked unusable! As a result there is no beach view. The stairs are very steep. This place has a lot of potential. A new set of stairs, updated fridge and stove, furniture that doesn’t look like your parents gave you what they didn’t want anymore would greatly benefit this place.
Manager response:
Hi Kelly, we hope you enjoyed your stay! We appreciate your feedback and we will be sure to address this with the homeowner for their consideration. We look forward to hosting you again soon!

All & all had a blast. Property was close to beach as advertised.... Only thing that I didn't like was the cleanliness of the ceiling fans. When I reversed the direction to bring outside air in ALL the dust bunnies came off & onto the beds. Wasn't enough to ruin the trip but would have expected this not an issue as property is cleaned so often.

Will stay at again.
Manager response:
Thank you for your comments. We are in our deep cleaning season and will inform the local staff of your comments, so this can be taken care of. We are sorry for any inconvenience that this may have caused you. We hope to host you again soon.

Host directions are perfect. We used google maps just to get to Belmont Park and then followed the directions that were emailed and we were able to find the apartment without a problem
Kevin M. Oct 2019
Could use some upgrades and better details of the places and remotes with battery’s and how to work the cable instead of having to figure it out for the first couple days on my own
Manager response:
We appreciate your feedback! Information about your reservation and the home can be found in the online Trip Portal. Our Guest Services team is also available 24/7 by phone and email. We hope to host you again.

We parked our car in the garage and didn’t move it. We were steps from the beach, close to restaurants and shops and enjoyed the location!!

Great place to stay with your family
Darren H. Jul 2019
Cute, cozy place for our family of 6 to stay! Super close to the beach, and a fun loft that the young kids absolutely loved! Management was wonderful and we had no problem accessing the condo and garage with their directions. Thanks again for a wonderful stay in Mission Beach!
Autumn K. May 2019
Loved that it was so close to the beach.
Anthony F. Jan 2019
It was close and convenient to many shops and restaurants.
Misty V. Sep 2018
Cute place and location was perfect.
LISBETH H. Sep 2018
Super close to the beach, park, and restaurants. It has a small kitchen with basics if you want to fix your own meals. Bring food with you. The local market is PRICEY! The beds were comfortable. Overall, a sweet little place.
Debra W. Jul 2018
The proximity to the beach is fantastic. Belmont is a block away with markets just as close for last minute needs.
Marc H. Jul 2018
We really loved the location of this place. The 2 bedrooms and living space areas were great for our family of four. The loft area was nice but might have been more effectively used with either a blow up mattress or small chairs. Advertised roof access was not available when we arrived and that was a little disappointing but not a deal breaker. Kitchen is very small, but very functional. Beach “toys” were available in garage and we LOVED using them. Great little place in a fantastic location.
Thomas M. Jul 2018
The apartment was a great spot for our family of four to spend some days in Mission Beach for a family reunion. The amenities were as advertised and check in/check out was very easy. The suggestion I have is that there should be a hose for rinsing feet after coming off the beach.
Joslyn T. Apr 2018
Laundry advertised, but have to call to know how to find and use it. Boogie boards advertised, but have to call to know how to find them...and then they weren't there. Worst part was receiving an email every day for the week preceding the visit saying that I needed to print, sign, and fax rental agreement or I wouldn't be let in. I didn't have a printer or fax machine with me on my vacation, felt annoyed that they think I want to spend my vacation time seeking them out, and then discovered that even though I didn't comply that local point of contact let me in with no additional paper work...were they just messing with me?? What about that is vacations made easy?
Manager response:
We are sorry to see this stay was not everything this guest expected. We do accept signatures online for this unit, which is what we received from the guest. We apologize for any confusion regarding any paperwork for the rental. We have verified the instructions for laundry and boogie board access are clear. We believe the guest in the front unit must have been using the boards when this guest was looking for them. Thank you!
Sadie R. Apr 2018
We originally booked for 6 but ended up with 3 which was ok because 6 really would have been a tight fit & they only provide 6 towels. They do have coin operated laundry and that was convenient. They advertised upper deck but after getting the confirmation email it was closed. The apartment is ok but a deep clean & some updates wouldn’t hurt. We were literally 30 steps from the beach & that was well worth it!
Candace G. Mar 2018
Thank you
Susan Elizabeth S. Mar 2018
Great location! Wish it had an outside sitting area!
Charles M. Feb 2018
What a great little second floor apt! Fully equipped kitchen, comfortable bedrooms and mattresses. Clean and guest ready upon arrival. And so well positioned to go out and have fun every day of your stay. We will return. Thanks!
Rodolfo G. Oct 2017
We stayed at this condo for 4 days and loved it. 1 car garage fits a small car, truck or large SUV will not fit
Rocio A. Sep 2017
I love the fact it was a last minite reservation i just didnt like tge fact the parking area was too small. Close to belmont part and sea world would reccomend for a family of 4 with a small car.
Ian H. Aug 2017
Location was absolutely perfect. One row back from the beach. The house is small and simple but who cares, next to a beautiful beach and tons to do for all ages.
Sara R. Jul 2017
We love this place! This was our 3rd year in a row renting the lower Ensenada house and our 1st year renting both the lower and upper Ensenada homes. This is a great location with tons of stuff for the whole family to do! The vacasa team is always so helpful and quick to respond with any issues that might come up also which makes the stay even better :)
Teresa D. Jun 2017
My family and I had a great stay. The location was ready for us early and very clean upon our arrival. A great spot for the beach, Belmont park, Sea World and many other places to go. Immunization was great. Thank you
Adam H. Jun 2017
My wife & I and one other couple stayed at the Upper Ensanada property. We very much enjoyed our stay. The location of the property is great -- a half block from the beach and only a few blocks from bars/restaurants/etc. There is a small rooftop patio which was nice. Our only minor complaint is that the wifi was not working during our stay. This was not a large issue for us, however, since we were there for vacation and not business. Ana was very helpful with check-in and we were able to get a slightly late checkout which was nice. We would definitely stay there again!
Steven C. Jun 2017
Place was clean, great location to beach, food, and shopping. Washer & dryer was convenient when traveling with 4 kids! Would stay here again for sure!
Andrea M. Apr 2017
AMAZING! Also, Ana was VERY helpful!
Ricky H. Mar 2017
Jus a few steps to the beach. Perfect.
Kate B. Feb 2017
This place was a great value. It's nothing fancy, but it's half a block to the beach and has a kitchen and a roof deck where you can see the ocean.
Karena B. Oct 2016
Great location, just around the corner from the beach and short stroll to Bellmont Park. Small but nice for family of four or less.

Things to know:
1. Under direct flight path. Noisy at times but did not disturb our sleep.
2. Garage is not only small but VERY difficult to pull into.
3. Invoice is not itemized but based on our nightly rate, cleaning fee seems significantly higher than other properties.
4. Very basic supplies. No tissues.
5. Complimentary early check-in unlikely based on our experience.
Mike T. Sep 2016
Perfect location extremely close to the beach and restaurants and bars.
Melissa O. Aug 2016
We would def stay here again, we love the little roof top and location.
Wade L. Aug 2016
loved it
Darren L. Aug 2016
We rented this property for a few days after San Diego Comic-Con to unwind. The location was excellent, and really was just steps from the beach. The property itself was cozy, but clean and well equipped. Highly recommended.
Shannon M. Jul 2016
Thank you for hosting us! We had an amazing time!
Maricarmen S. Jul 2016
Unit was ok but it needs ac in the rooms
Stephanie A. Jul 2016
Great spot close to the beach. Close to the park and roller coster area.
Jason W. Jun 2016
We stayed for four days and it was close to everything, convenient. And absolutely adorable. We enjoyed sitting on upper deck and listening to the sounds of the ocean any time of the day we wanted! Was hard to tear ourselves away from this location!
David P. Jun 2016
Steps to both Belmont Park and Beach, check
Good rate, check
Just know these things going in: the place is small ... especially the kitchen, but if you want proximity to Mission Beach's main attractions for a reasonable rate you'd be hard pressed to find a better place. Second, the garage will not fit anything longer than a car, sort of - we have a 14 Kia Sedona Mini-Van it took a feat of parking gymnastics to get it in the garage, and if there's a tenant in the neighbouring unit you won't be able to get in and out of your car. We street parked, which is free just pay attention to the restrictions, if memory serves the south bound side is restricted Monday and Thursday from 8-10 am for sweeping, the North bound side of Mission is restricted Tuesday and Friday, same hours otherwise it's first come first served. Overall if you're interested in having a clean place to stay that's convenient and comfortable this is the spot ... I have a family of five, kids between 4-7 and it was ideal for us
Joe H. Jun 2016
Very nice vacation. Very close to the beach in a quieter portion of Mission Beach. I have been vacationing in the Mission Beach area for several years now and this is one of the better values I have gotten. The rooftop deck is great, the beds are comfortable, internet connection is good. All in all this place is a winner if you are looking for an affordable place just three houses from the boardwalk/
Taylor M. May 2016
We stayed at your property because we were in town for a friends wedding. Location was perfect, unfortunately we were unable to take advantage of the beach because of the timing of the wedding. Overall, everything was nice and clean. Would stay here again if in San Diego.
Kenneth A. Apr 2016
We enjoyed our stay!
Sally F. Mar 2016
We were so thankful to find Upper Ensenada! We are native San Diegans and were looking for a great place to "staycation" for the weekend and we found it! The price was reasonable and the location is only a hop,skip,and jump from the beach side. Very close to Belmont Park which is fun for all ages and South Mission is super chill. We were very satisfied!
Jeffrey W. Mar 2016
Good location decent amenities for the price :)
Annette W. Dec 2015
Property was clean and comfortable. Somewhat difficult to access the small rooftop patio. Awesome experience for a small family or group. Would definitely book again!
Cliff J. Nov 2015
The house worked perfectly for our needs. It was right by the beach and we really enjoyed running on the path along the beach every morning and being able to walk to restaurants and shops nearby. It was fun to be able to be on the ocean on one side and the bay on the other as there is a much different vibe on each side - surfing in one place and sailing in the other!
Brianna R. Oct 2015
Literally 50 steps to the beach. Cute 60's beach condo. Comfortable but cozy. Not a large enough place to really hang out but who stays indoors that close to the beach!
John H. Aug 2015
This was a great little place to crash, close to the beach. It served the needs of our family well. The upper deck was hard to utilize, we never used it. It was clean and very comfortable. Staff was very attentive to our needs.
Curtis E. Jul 2015
The condo is a little dated, but everything was clean. The furniture is older and cheap. The shower door does not close properly and water gets all over the floor. The unit doesn't have AC, which isn't a problem temperature wise, but the noise from neighbors and planes can get very loud with the windows open.
Yvonne L. Jul 2015
Great location close to beach. Steps to loft and roof are very steep. Taller people need to watch their head! BBQ was downstairs in a walkway requiring you to bring everything up and down the stairs. Difficult to find parking on street. Garage is small. Location made up for many of the inconveniences.
Greg M. Apr 2015
This was a great place to stay. Super convenient for going to the beach and reaching destinations in other parts of the city. Great place for families. Affordable, clean, well maintained. Great service and management.
