    Great place to stay. Garage is not that big but fits a midsize SUV. There is a green dumpster across the alley which makes backing into the garage hard. Best way is to come up the alley or back down from the strandway, There were beach chairs in the garage.

    My family and I spent 5 days here and overall our experience was excellent. The vicinity to the beach and attractions like Belmont Park are perfect. If you are looking for a beach rental with all the updated appliances and home furnishings, well this place inst for you. For me and my family, literally all our time was spent at the beach and the home was comfortable and relaxing and nothing i would really complain about. The only thing I did have issues with was the internet, which was not really a deal break but would have been nice not to fool around with troubleshooting. I would definitely rent this unit again.

    Love the walk to either beach. Nice patio, some noisy neighbors. Not enough towel racks and/or hooks and had to call for large pot-only 1 saucepan provided. Good hot water. Garage was a plus. Comfortable beds and clean. Very basic TV service and wifi. We did enjoy our stay and proximity to everything and would like to see better cooking supplies.

    For people who like a great deal AND a decent/comfortable stay. Bring quarters for the washer/dryer if you want to do laundry. They have beach chairs & boogie boards you can use. Nice patio for grilling & small gatherings.

    Based on the pictures we were getting a good beach apartment at a great location. It is stupid, but we chose this property over several others because there was a massage chair in the place. Well, that chair was broken and by the looks of it the chair had been broken for a while. The email that was sent to us with check in instructions had the incorrect door code so we had to speak to the local manager which was quick and she was very helpful. Once inside and settled we could tell that very little has been maintained beyond just the required minimum. We could feel sand on the tile floor throughout the apartment. The furniture is worn and should be replaced. The salt air has left rust in places that you would expect it, just minor stuff but something that would cost very little to improve. Next door to the master bedroom was another apartment with a motion light that went off constantly so all night our room would light up like day time for a couple minutes then get dark again.

    Positives - The location is amazing, just a 1 minute walk to a great beach and couple minute walk to food and entertainment. The garage was small but nice that you could park your vehicle inside. We used the washer and dryer once and it worked fine, kind of cheap to me that they are pay machines. Our neighborhood was very quiet, we never heard any partying or animals, we slept great once we were able to block some of the light from the neighbor.

    This unit offers a great location. A short walk to the beach or bay as well as the nearby amusement park. The only downside was that the unit is a little run down. We experienced an ant problem in the unit, but other than being an older building with old appliances we really enjoyed our week long stay.

    there were a number of issues straight away, fly infestation, which was from not having the exterior washed down and other guest food residue on the cement and plants had caused a lot of flies to congregate, however once management was informed the issue was taken care of straight away. Additionally the unit is not as maintained as I would have expected for the money spent. The owner would do well to get a more hotel fell in the unit, and perhaps a woman's touch, additionally the 'massage chair' was so dirty and rusted and controls broken and dirty, it would do better to be thrown out, I didn't want my kids sitting on it not knowing what they might pick up. The screen were ripped and one window broken (a safety issue for me a traveling mom on the ground floor unit) however again Vacassa was right on the spot and got approval to replace the screens and the handyman managed to rig a lock system to the broken window. I know these are little items, but they impact the overall experience a guest has. Directions for the TV would have been great, we again had to relay on Anna at Vacasa (who was wonderful) to assist us in how to use the devices....

    So close you can see the water from the patio. Beach out front is for surfers so we walked north maybe 50 yards to go body boarding. Waves ideal. Unit is large and recently remodeled with granite in the kitchen. First night quiet but 2nd night party next door was loud but we closed the windows and turned up the fan and fell right back to sleep. Fit my F150 extra cab in the garage barely 19'1". All in all great spot, fun trip.

    Mike's Place at the Beach was exactly what we were looking for. A block from the Pacific, easy in and out for a few days. Parked the car in the garage and didn't need it again until it was time to leave. Belmont Park, local restaurants, and a great beach are all a few steps away. The cottage was neat and comfortable with a great patio to enjoy our coffee in the morning. Will visit again for sure!

    The reservation process and directions to access the house were easy to follow.
    The house is in a great location, just a block away from the beach and a very short walk to Belmont park. We parked our car in the garage and did not need it again until our departure. The beds are a tad creaky, but overall this cute little place was exactly what we hoped for.

    Not sure if I would stay there again. Loved the location, wished the tv's had worked or we had instructions . Parking would be difficult if you had a med to lrg veh. We had three tv's , seven remotes( none worked) and none of the tv's would work. Two TV's said no signal and the third one said it was a data problem. We called the office and someone tried to call us back and left a message that he would be in the area that day, however due to limited time and not wanting to sit home and waste a day of our vacation to wait for him we went out to do the tourist things. The tv's should be set up so a tenant just needs to turn them on and the correct remote is handy, or directions should be in the guest check-in procedure book. Also, last minute notice that there would be work on the street leading to the garage. We made it into the garage but had to move the car out by 8 a.m. when the street crews started work or be stuck in the garage.

    I came with my family for a February business trip. We arrived later after dark. My family felt the area looked a bit sketchy at first (admitted it looked better in the daytime). We came to love the bohemian feel, and loved being so close to many local attractions. We did most everything on foot - except for one day at San Diego Zoo and trip to oceanfront dog park. Having a car garage was a necessity - kinda like how valuable a parking space in New York City can be. Immediately ran into a couple of friendly neighbor ladies who greeted and welcomed us, I have stayed at the Pacific Terrace Hotel, just up the road - it's a really nice hotel for a good price. But it does not have the feeling of home away from home, or the flexibility that comes with Mike's Place. Our kids had their own space. We typically made breakfast at house, ate out remainder of time. I liked interacting with real local people, not just other tourists. A short walk to Belmont Park was cool too.

    My husband and I stayed here with our three small children. The location was great. We walked to the beach and spent most of our days playing in the sand. The beach was very nice. We walked to Mission Bay park and let the kids play on the playground. We were also able to walk to some nice places to eat.

    My only complaints would be that the people upstairs were really loud and didn't seem to ever go to bed. The garage was a really tight fit for our van but any other small car should be fine. We weren't completely satisfied with the cleanliness when we got there.

    That being said, we had a great time and like I said the price for the location was great. We would consider staying there again.

    We enjoyed our stay. The location is great. So close to the beach. Kids could go there and come back on their own. Amenities for clean up were right outside the door so it was convenient. The picnic table in the yard was great. We could enjoy lunch and dinner there. The kitchen was well equipped. We cooked two meals there. There was a massage chair which was really relaxing. :-) Beds were comfortable. Towels were clean.
    The bed in the master bedroom was extremely creaky such that we kept waking ourselves up whenever we turned at night. One dining chair was very creaky so only three of us could sit at the dininng table. The plumbing in the bathroom was not great. Please take your shampoo and bath soap. They say do not pack but do not provide any there. Luckily the location is good so you can walk to the store and buy toiletries. Internet was extremely weak but then we had gone to enjoy the beach so didn't care. The garage was ver tight due to a huge dumpster in the alley. It made parking a nightmare for us. We had a Honda Odyssey. Getting the car in and out was extremely difficult. So we didn't get the car out after the first time. Luckily the location of the property was such that we could walk to many good restaurants or get delivery. Overall the stay was good.

    A group of us stayed for 4 nights and there were several positives and negatives. First the positives, it was close to the beach and other fun areas that Mission Beach has to offer (such as Kayaking, the roller coaster, etc...). It was also in a quiet area so there was never any issues with neighbors being loud or obnoxious. The size of the place was perfect for the 5 of us and would be great for a family as it has loads of free amenities for the beach and cooking/grilling.

    Now for the negatives, it wasn't cleaned as well as it should of been when we arrived. The floors were not cleaned ahead of time and there was issues with fruit flies when we arrived. Additionally our pilot light was out when we arrived which made the place smell like gas. However, when we called about any issue they were very responsive right away.

    Overall, I would recommend this place especially for families. The only drawback for non-families is that there is one bathroom so a large group of six is not ideal for sharing one bathroom.
