    We spent a week at Sweet Sunset Studio and were very happy with the experience. Location is terrific, amenities fine, and on the whole, worth coming back to. A few "peculiarities" that should be noted in the write-ups:
    1. bed is 4 feet off the ground - which is perfect for a clear view of the sea when you awake, but could be a challenge for those not at least a little nimble.
    2. deck is wonderful, but it is shared with the next-door renters
    3. parking can be a bit of a challenge - on the street, which can fill up nearby
    4. laundry in the garage is fine, but bring quarters (coin operated).
    5 internet works sporadically - on-again-off-again and pretty slow

    All in all, we'd go back - the internet sketchiness was the only really annoying part; everything else very nice.

    this was a last minute booking, we had no many options, but we did not regret that we stayed there. parking was a hassle, but we managed to find free parking in 5 min walking distance. there are bars and restaurants in the neighborhood, you can rent bike/surf/longboard for $10 per day, and you can walk to the beach bare foot wearing wetsuit which was great! beautiful beach, beautiful sunset from the porch.

    very clean, simple place fully stocked with everything you need. Awesome location close to everything in Mission Beach. You can see the surf laying in bed! Perfect for 3 of us (couple with 10 year old daughter). The photos and property description was accurate so we knew what to expect. It's only 20 yards from the beach. Parking is on the surrounding streets but we found a spot real close so we walked in with our stuff about 30 yards no problem. We would stay here again.

    This was our second time staying at this property. The building has four units, and the studio is the only one that has a view of the ocean. The sound of the waves at night is great. The unit is located just a couple blocks from shopping, dining, drinking and other entertainment. It is a short bike ride or walk up to Pacific Beach, which is a favorite of ours. Parking is a challenge, so we would recommend Uber for getting around. Would definitely stay here again. It is a small but functional studio for a couple wanting to get a way to a great location in Mission Beach.

    The location is the best aspect of this rental. This would be ideal for a couple or 2 people staying together who are not planning on being in the apartment for anything other than sleeping. I don't think 4 would be very comfortable with the heat and size of this apartment. The was no air conditioning and most nights were pretty unbearable to sleep with the heat. Recommend bringing your own fan due to the one fan in the apartment is placed near the kitchen and does not provide any air circulation on the bed (fan would be better served above the bed or closer to bed). The bed was a little hard to get in and out of since it is so raised off the ground. Not really ideal for anyone with balance or mobility issues. The only things to use to step on were an ottoman and futon couch, which were not very stable. There were beach towels (4) in the apartment and I was told there were none and I could have saved some room in my bag by not bringing towels. There is really no parking so recommend not bringing a car and taking uber. Uber was very easy to use in this area. We had some really loud neighbors however it was a weekend and summer time so we expected some noise and since there is no AC we had to keep the windows open. Overall, I was really happy with the location. Excellent for beach weekend.

    First of all the location of this property is awesome. You can see the beach from the unit and sitting on the deck. The beach is just steps away and is spectacular. We really enjoyed bike riding around the area and eating at a few of the local spots in Mission and Pacific beaches. There is no on site parking, so unload your stuff then go find parking. We were able to find parking with in a couple of blocks on Mission street. You will have to move your car 8:00- 10:00AM for street sweeping. Pay attention to the signs. There is parking south of the unit on mission too, but it is a little farther walk. It was un seasonably warm when we were there and the unit has no air conditioning. This made sleeping difficult. Also, on the weekend, the local bars let out around 2:00AM so it got noisy for a while with people walking by. That wouldn't have been a problem, except that we had to sleep with all the windows and doors open, so it was a little loud. Overall we had a fun stay. We would stay here again for sure. Even with the heat issue and inconvenient parking, the location is just too good.

    This was a perfect place for three ladies who needed a beach break. Close to every thing we needed, especially the beach. It was wonderful being able to sit on the deck and see the ocean and at night see the fireworks from Sea World. We only cooked once, for breakfast, but it seems to be stocked with everything need to cook full meals. The parking is a nightmare, especially if you are in a big pick-up like we were (we were on a road trip from out of state). However, we parked the truck at Mission Bay Park, in the overnight parking lot, for three days with no problems. The walk to and from the parking lot is relatively short, took me 5 mins, when you compare it with constantly having to move the vehicle if you are parked on the street. We just pulled up near the unit on Strandway, unloaded, and then one of us drove it over to the parking lot. Worked for us. I would definitely stay here again.

    It was a charming studio. We stay in San Diego often and this was the 1st time I stayed at this particular studio. We always rent 3-4 bedrooms but it was just a quick visit with me and mom. It was perfect for what we came for. A bed, shower, minimal kitchen. The view was nice and location is great. I would definitely stayed again if I was in need of small but spacious space. Thanks!

    This place is small but has a kitchenette, patio area (that is shared) and is only 1 min walk to the beach. Like I said, there were some minor issues but management took care of them very quickly.

    Cozy little house, 30 second walk to the ocean side beach. Management is very nice and willing to help however they can. Kind of tight quarters with another rental avaible right next to the door of 718 1/2 and have to share upper deck. Not bad, but also not sure of who you will be sharing the upstairs portion with. Overall though it was a great trip and management was very friendly and prompt. Would stay again.

    We usually camp on the beach . We like to be able to come & go . The studio was just as good . This was the perfect place . Second floor , table & chairs on terrace . Although I didn't get to swim I had great view of boardwalk , where my granddaughter could ride her skate board . Coffee outside in morn. Wine during sunset . Would recommend . And will use again when we don't camp .

    This was perfect for the 2 of us. The kitchen had a full size stove and fridge. No dishwasher. Very close to the beach and bay. Parking seemed to be an issue with many visitors since it is limited. Make sure you check which side of the street you can park and stay back from the red line. The bed was hard for me to climb up without a boost from my hubby - I'm 5'4". But, it was very comfortable. Conveniently located to a lot of attractions or just relax on the beach or bay. We had a Great time!

    I stayed here in January of 2016 and having this place made my stay so much easier! So close to the beach and walking distance to so many places. The kitchen has everything you will need! Frying pans, pots, silverware, every cooking utensil, plates, bowls, cups, wine glasses, cutting boards, a toaster, a blender, etc. I was very impressed with how stocked it was! It made getting groceries for the week very easy. Plenty of extra towels and sheets. Pictures are true to the place. The bed is pretty high up, as you can see, but it wasn't a problem. I would most definitely stay here again and recommend it to my friends/family!

    The place would be awesome for a couple (young or old), that just want to spend as little as possible indoors. Good restaurants that are walking distance & the beach is literally half a block away. Basically at your front door. But not good if you have kids or if you plan to cook a good meal. I already knew the place came without cable & no parking, but the wifi was horrible. Barely had a connection for more than 15-20 minutes & the TV did not work at all. So even though we had brought our own things to watch on the TV, it was impossible. Not even the remotes had good batteries. I called management on it, someone showed up the following day to inspect it. He said it would be replaced the following day, but we never heard back on it again. We spent 7 days without a working TV & barely any internet. The kitchen was missing pans & the fridge did not have ice trays. The bed is too high & what was available to get onto it, was not an appropriate piece of furniture.

    Nice view, my family really enjoyed sitting out on the patio for meals. It was a nice change to be able to sit outside and eat in peace without fighting flies and mosquitoes! Great location if you're there for relaxing on the beach and going to the amusement park and Sea World.
