We like to visit the San Diego area and Mission Beach can be a lot of fun and relaxing. We have rented dozens of vacation homes over the years all over the US. I research very carefully before I go to understand what type of unit I will be using and if it fits what we need at a good price. This unit was a pretty good value for the area so we booked it for five days in February 2020.

Units in this part of Mission Beach typically have very very narrow parking in most of the units if at all. This unit has a wide garage that could fit two average sized cars, unfortunately, the alley is so narrow and the adjoining restaurant has its dumpsters placed in the alley as well. So trying to pull into and out of the garage can be very difficult with a bigger car; we have a Prius. Bringing in two cars is nearly impossible because of the approach angle to get in the garage, the dumpsters and people parking illegally in the alley. It was nice to have a code to use on the garage door entry pad to get in and out because the front gate was locked and we couldn’t enter through the front door. The lock was rusted shut. The local manager was able to fix it by the third day we were there.

We had no internet the duration of our stay and spent quite a bit of time trying to re-establish an Internet connection. The DIRECTV was great and had a lot of sports channels and local news. Didn’t have ESPN for some reason, but had Big Ten network NFL network and a lot of other standby stations. The unit was very clean, nice kitchen, roomy compared to others in the area no doubt. We stayed in February 2020 and we typically wake up early, unfortunately, if you plan to sleep in the businesses around the unit sharing the alley and others nearby fill their dumpsters up daily and they have to be emptied by a noise dump truck. So by 9 AM every morning the dumpster truck was making quite a bit of noise. Not a problem for us. Also there is no air conditioning and is not needed in February, however, some patrons of the restaurant and the nearby bar hang outside to have a smoke and talk and it can be very late at night. The restaurant has a screen door where patrons enter and exit and noise flows right through it. If you need windows open to keep your cool in summer, as there are no ceiling fans or AC, you may be up at night because of the noise. The master bedroom window faces in the direction of the bar and could keep you up at night. We had the luxury of sleeping in the second bedroom with the bunkbeds , keeping the window closed because it was chilly at night. So we slept fine. You are on the opposite side of the unit from the chatter and noise from the bars and grill in the second bedroom.

The unit is in a great location just steps away from the walking/bike path that goes around the whole perimeter of Mission Bay. Eateries are steps away. The mini market close by is very expensive but a Ralphs is a 10 minute drive away. A five minute walk or less you are on the beach. Lots of beach toys for boys and girls and provided beach coolers. Nice kitchen appliances and it is always great to have an efficeint icemaker in the fridge. We made use of the great Weber bas BBQ grill every night. Hopefully, the internet was reestablished for the next renter. It has DSL but there is also fiber service available (I spent a lot of time with ATT customer service trouble shooting the issue). A new modem was sent to the unit but we had no luck setting it up and the local manager finally requested a tech come to the unit because we spent hours on hold and etc. trying to get the internet working. The owner would do well to spend a little more for more reliable faster fiber optic service.

We likely would stay in this unit again in the cooler seasons as it fits our needs and is priced well for just the two of us and a friend or two who might stop by and have dinner with us. Public parking is not easy for guests in summer , for sure, but in February parking spots usually can be found nearby.

Perfect. Absolutely perfect

Wonderfully located for easy walks to fun spots.

Parking is a premium so don’t bank on parking more than one vehicle easily.

Loved it!

Really good location and easy to get in and out of! Big bonus having a private garage for parking!

The place was perfect for what we needed. Plenty of room in the garage and the rooms were great. The garbage truck was not that bad and only once after 8am. I wouldn’t let it scare you away. If available on our next trip we will visit again. I highly recommend this place!

Loved the unit and location. Didn't love being woke up by trash truck banging and backup alarm every morning. Not lying, Every morning.
Manager response:
Thank you for your feedback, Dennis. We apologize for the noise from the garbage truck. We will bring this to the attention of the local staff. Thank you!
