The marketing picture of this home is misleading. This unit faces the alley and is on the second floor. Be prepared for the noise of barking dogs, lots of garbage cans, and neighbors hearing your conversations. The unit is sparsely stocked as well. On the positive side, it is walkable to the beach. This one is a miss….

Having lived in San Diego at the beach for 12 years I know exactly where this property would be. Totally close to the boardwalk and all the fun that is Mission Beach and PB. Fantastic that it has a garage in the Park parking can be challenging in the Beach area. There's room two for bikes if you rent them and you can keep them secure when not using them. Beds were comfortable space was clean and well ventilated
It's great that it has all new vinyl replacement windows that are fairly thick as you can fairly soundproof the space when you go to sleep at night as it is a tight knit community all around
The one thing I will say is that the picture suggests possibly that you have a patio and an umbrella. This is an upstairs unit and it has a small porch with a bistro table that you can sit on but it's good for just two people.
But this is just a my new point. When all said and done this was an amazing space as a base of operations.
Very close to the beach and all the shops was nice to have a couple TVs
Clean…great location…only negative was internet sucked…just make sure you download items…we would definitely book again…
Thank you for staying with us, Carol. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the location and condition of the home! We apologize that the internet was spotty during your stay, and have shared your feedback with the local management so they may address this for future guests. We hope to welcome you back in the future!
The home was clean, spacious and beautiful! Had a slightly hard time finding it, please include in directions, you go around the corner and upstairs. Other than that, thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Would definitely do it again!
Clean, comfortable, and great location! I would definitely stay here again!
The home is perfectly located in Mission Beach on the ocean side. Doesn’t share a wall or a floor with anyone. Densely populated area so you will hear some noise. Spacious and comfortable. The garage was big enough for my full sized Buick Enclave.
House was cute and cozy. This house was so close to the beach. Beds weren’t very comfortable, that would be the only suggestion for inside the house Everything else was perfect and cute. Loved that there was laundry available. The area it’s self was pretty dirty with all the trash cans in the alley. Lots of flies. I would stay at this complex again, just not in the rear where your only entrance was through the alley.
Thank you for staying with us! We are happy to hear you enjoyed your home. Thank you for sharing your feedback and bringing some items to our attention that may need some TLC. I have forwarded your feedback to the local staff so they can work to improve the house for future guests. Please know that our guest services team is available 24 hours a day to assist should any concerns arise during your visit. We hope you choose to stay with us again!
We were close to the beach, shopping , and food! Great location!
Super close to the beach, bay, and Belmont Park. The garage was very needed, as street parking is super limited. The main thing I will caution against is that the evenings are loud. It’s a beach community—people come down here to party. Our family was attempting to get to bed early, and it was tricky. All in all, we’d stay here again.
Thank you for staying with us! We are sorry to hear about your noisy neighbors during your stay and we would like to let you know that this is not normal for this property. We are glad it did not change the enjoyment of your stay and we look forward to hosting you again!
The house was in the perfect location! The only down fall was no ac or box fans and it was warm at times! Perfect house for want me needed it for.
Great location! Steps away from the beach, Belmont Park, restaurants and stores! Very clean and cozy place that slept four perfectly! We would definitely stay here again.
I loved the area it was so close to the beach.
Thank you for staying with us! We appreciate your feedback regarding the home. I have passed this information along to the local staff so they can ensure this does not happen to future guests. We hope to host you again soon!
Great location, steps away from the beach.
I loved how close it was to everything it was very clean and comfortable
When we pulled in early to check in, we spoke with the prior renter who said that they were very unhappy with no internet and that it caused them problems, but that they had notified the owner. We thought it would be fixed, but it wasn't. As an attorney, the only way I was able to take my family for a weeklong vacation was to be able to work while there. However, we also had no internet. To make matters worse, because the TV uses AT&T Uverse, which didn't provide working internet, we had no TV. Overall, the property, and especially location, were awesome, and we would love such a property again, but the lack of internet and TV (and inability to easily contact the homeowner or Vacasa, which is most likely due to Vacasa's website (we'll use airbnb homeaway in the future instead Vacasa)), we can't leave a great review. However, if the internet issue were not an issue, we would actually choose this property over others for a future trip.
Thank you for staying with us, Jonathan. We apologize for the internet situation. We had to call AT&T to have them send a technician out, and the earliest they could do it was almost a week away. The internet and TV are now working correctly. We hope to see you again!
Very clean unit with a well stocked kitchen. Nice beach access. Enjoyed our stay!
This place was just steps to the beach, as in a 3 minute walk. The place was clean, spacious and had a kitchen that provided all the cooking utensils and pans you would need. I travel with young children and this place was perfect for a family. I will definitely book this place again!
The Mission Beach area was very convenient to my grandson's favorite places: the beach, the bay, rides at Belmont Park, and good freeway access to San Diego attractions. The house had everything we needed. Having 2 TVs was a plus, and we appreciated the overhead fans in every room.
Clean and well stocked with stuff for the beach. Loved it. Second bedroom could use a new mattress (super rough) but otherwise great.
Realmente uma ótima opção. O imóvel é exatamente conforme descrito no anúncio. Adoramos a estadia. Obrigado.
This place was clean, and stocked with little extras (shampoo, soap). It was quiet, even on the weekend and close to the beach. A great little place!
My husband and I and our friends loved the location and that the house had everything we needed. The only downfall were the beds. They weren’t very comfortable we didn’t sleep well. Other than that we loved how easy it was to find, within walking distance of everything. I’d recommend it for everything except the mattresses.
The house was awesome clean, close to everything. Loved going to the beach everyday. Me didn't want to leave. Thank you for having such a wonderful place for us to go too.
It was so close to the beach!! Local food and shops . So fun in mission beach!
Loved the house. It was perfect! Close to beach, shops and roller coaster!
We loved our stay, it was exactly how it was described and steps away from the beach. I would definitely stay here again with my family.
The apartment is so close to the beach. It doesn't get much more convenient. I loved being able to use the kitchen in the morning and come and go from Mission Beach whenever. Perfect place to stay if you're planning on walking everywhere!
Roadworks was so inviting. The property provided excellent directions and instructions. The kitchen had all the necessary equipment needed to cook, including pots and pans , glasses and utensils. I felt safe and secure in the 2nd floor. plenty of room. The beach was less than 5 minutes away. Will stay again anytime!!!
within walking distance of the beach and almost anything -- ubers/skooters/bikes easily accessible too. garage has enough space for one vehicle and it worked out perfectly for us!
This little home is only about 700sqft, but has everything you’ll need - kitchen, living room, bathroom, and two comfortable-size bedrooms. My wife and I stayed for 3 nights with our two small children and we had to tiptoe around after they went down because the place is so small. It would be great for someone with older kids. The unit is built above the garage, so there might be some noise if people are coming and going often. The other unit (732, not 732 1/2) is ground level and has a lovely little yard to hang out in that faces the walkway out to the beach. The Pacific is steps from the yard, so very convenient lcocation. All necessary kitchenware, towels, sheets, etc are in the home and there are some outdoor things (chairs, umbrella, etc) in the single car garage which has a manual garage door that you have to open and close by hand. There’s also a washer and dryer in the garage. The check in procedure and Vacasa were both great and very easy. We enjoyed our stay here, but beware of renting on the weekend if you aren’t up for the parties at all the neighboring houses as this is a very popular college/young adult area.
Myself and my two teenage kids stayed here for a week and loved it. It was our own private retreat that also happened to be steps away from the beach. Lots of amenities included in the rental (beach toys included). We’re already planning next year’s trip!!
Apartment was impeccably clean. Perfect size and easy. Had everything we needed and very comfortable. Exactly what it advertises. Super close to the beach and Belmont Park where we rented bikes. Little market a block away. Fun community with young people but all friendly towards people on vacation like us. Never used the rental car. Should have used Uber for airport transfers instead. Will definitely come back.
The TV did not work the entire time. We followed the instructions completely and it just did not work. The beds were also very firm. Other than that, no complaints. I would stay there again should these two things change.
Just steps away from the beach. Close by restaurants and nearby park.
Unit is just a short walk to beach, entertainment and restaurants
Very nice. Has every thing you may need
Parking in Mission Bay is minimal so having the garage was great. Clean house...could use AC or a window unit in the summer. Short walk to Belmont Park and fine/casual dining. Excellent location of you have kids! Get the GoCard and it includes ride plus attraction to Belmont.
You are literally 25 mins away max to most things. You are steps from the beach and the best sunset. The rental is a bit outdated but the location makes up for it We will be back again.
Great little house for a get away, everything you need, it was great
Nice comfortable place for a relaxed beach wknd
Great proximity to beach but party area. Not recommended if you have small children.
Our stay at the Cacasa rental was great. It was so close to the beach and Belmont Park. The parking is really tough, very little space, so if you are going to be in and out take your time. Rentals are pretty close together as well so keep dressed.
We loved our stay in San Diego. The place was clean, comfortable, and the location was perfect!
The location is phenomenal. This is a basic place, but adequate.
This is a clean, cute upstairs apartment just a few steps from the beach. However, please be aware that it sits across the sidewalk from a frat house. The fraternity was very nice, however they have loud parties most weekends (shut down by 11 pm) and what we experienced is definitely not an appropriate scene for children. Weekdays were great however. Great location, walking distance to shops, Belmont Park, and lots of seashell hunting on the beach.
Love you location. Comfortable vacation rental. Look forward to staying at this location again!
The property is dated but for the price it makes it a great buy. Our son lives in near by in Pacific Beach and our grandson loves the beach, so the location is excellent. The deck is small but faces the winter sun and does the job for 2 people. It was very clean when arrived. We only needed to call the property manager Ana once to get the door code and she was very responsive. We plan on staying here again in future visits.
We really enjoyed staying right on Mission Beach in this up-stairs getaway. Situated off the back half of a flat on top of the garage, this was a quiet and pleasant set-up for our family of 4 with 2 kids under 4 years old.
There are two full-sized rooms with enough space to settle in, along with a living room and kitchen inside. The porch overlooks the outgoing San Diego airport traffic, which our kids loved and was a nice spot to catch some sun without being on the wind-swept beach.
It's within easy walking distance of the beach, the bay, multiple parks, a grocery store, and some good restaurants, and the neighbors are a mix of fellow travelers or local college students.
My only criticism is the barren kitchen. There was literally nothing in the cabinets, except for dishes, glasses, and cookware. No salt or pepper, no oil, no sugar, no condiments. It made our plans of cooking our own food a bit more challenging and with no Tupperware to put left-overs in and a microwave that didn't work. It took some creativity, but wouldn't recommend this place if you're planning the DIY route.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay and the location right on Mission Beach which gave us a great hub for putzing around and playing in the sand.
Easy taxi ride from the airport. altho the return ride was faster and cheaper by the guy we hired for the return via Yelp, but the airport assigned taxi was adequate. Great location so car not needed if you enjoy walking. So many good places to eat out, and grocery store within a mile with all you need. No cooking oil or salt pepper etc. unless someone happens to leave it behind, but you can get at the store. Plenty of pots & pans & dishes. Comfy for 3 -4 people, altho furniture needs upgrading or cleaning. Beds too. Good TV and wifi. The boardwalk was very busy and happy, and it's so close, around the corner. just a block away is the bay side, which is a lovely, less busy walk. A great base area from which to go out and play and return easily. Just need a little tweak on the furnishings to make it perfect.
The location is great, 30 second walk to the beach. The home was very adorable but dated. The TV & Internet were very good! Overall we loved it and would stay here again!
here is a preaty good site. but we cant see the ocean from the house. it is a little bit disapointed for us.
The location is awesome for family, and the two bedroom upstairs is just a cozy and right amount of room!
We loved our stay here, being my first time in San Diego the location (minutes from Mission Beach) was perfect. There are several surfboard rental locations within walking distance of the house. San Diego is less than 15min away. If you're vacationing in San Diego this house is a great choice.
2nd time using Vacasa. 1st time at this location. Overall worked for our family. Location is walking distance to beach and Belmont park. Patio overlooks roof of rental below...that was only feature that I couldn't see from photos online or virtual tour.
It was quiet and cute! Loved being so
Close to the beach. There was a little ant problem so don't leave food out over night and the floors made ur feet really dirty but other than that it was so much fun and perfect for a birthday getaway with a couple friends
Nice Unit, Good Location right by Belmont Park
Perfect location, spacious and cosy apartment :-)
This is a small cottage just a few steps to Mission Beach. Overall is was OK as the location is great. The kitchen and living areas are nice. The bathroom is old, not much room to put your toiletries, and the shower is sub par. The mattresses are not comfortable.
Little house steps from the beach, our location was super convenient. Luigi's vegetarian pizza was superb. Having the garage (assigned parking) was a blessing.
We enjoyed our stay so much, loved the location, our boys are already planning a return trip. The beach house is exactly as described, and having lived in SD for six years, it was exactly as we imagined. It's perfect for our family of four. It's a beach house, it's not luxurious, but we never expected it to be. We're planning on booking this house again.
My adult daughter and I plan vacations like this every year. We manage to always have a good time, however this time sleeping in was not an option the city of San Diego dug up the same old three mornings in a row starting at 8 o'clock with jackhammers . We missed a cruise we had already paid for one evening because we could not get the car out of the garage because one of the supervisors have his truck parked in front of it no one on the job site could find the supervisor and then finally come to find out he was just sitting over at the beach watching the sun go down
We apologize that some aspects of your trip were frustrated by construction; we will do our best to work with the crew on respecting our guests while the construction workers are working near the unit.
This is a very cute little apartment just a few minutes from the beach!! Parking is incredibly tight ( I wasn't able to park our mini van in the garage) - and street parking is pretty hard to find. Overall, the unit is a great spot to relax and you're right in the middle of mission beach, walking distance to everything . Great spot!
Very clean, the price includes a garage. We enjoyed our stay.
Great location, close to beach. Only thing like most CA homes there was no AC and it was a hot weekend! Felt save enough to leave Windows open all night. Great there was a garage too!
CLEAN COMFORTABLE ROOMS CLOSE ACCESS TO BEACH AND RESTAURANTS WALKING OR BIKING DISTANCE..........ENJOYED OUR STAY WOULD VISIT AGAIN !
We were able to book this apartment last minute for a very reasonable price and flexibility on dates. The location is awesome, just a few minute walk to beach, shopping, restaurants, and Belmont Park. The apartment was clean, a well stocked kitchen and plenty of linens. Contrary to a previous poster's review, the swimming area is not a long walk at all, maybe 100 feet one way or the other.
My daughter and I stayed for four nights. We loved it. We were so close to the beach and could easily come and go. Having our own garage was a huge plus as well. My 4 Runner fit perfectly. We will definitely be back!
Smack dab in the middle of PB and Mission Beach, access to pretty much everything you'll need is mere minutes away. The beach access is really close and right in the middle of the "surf" section, so truly convenient if you're gonna enjoy the waves. However, if you're gonna swim, you'll have to walk a bit. Four people comfortably stayed here, altho a single bathroom somewhat complicates the proposition. The beds will have your back aching, so don't plan on getting much restful sleep (too much booze also does this). The temp was always comfortable as there was plenty of airflow. The neighborhood was quiet, despite being so close to the boardwalk. Beware of trash pick-up during the weekday as it honestly sounds like the world is coming to an end, so invest in ear plugs. If you rent beach cruisers, you'll never need your rental car. Bike ride to the nightlife to the north is approx. 15 minutes.
This was an excellent experience for my entire family. We actually didn't know what to expect since this was our first time around with Vacasa. I can honestly say now that I would recommend Vacasa with out any reservation.
We will definitely be returning in the future!!!
Thank you Vacasa for the Great Experience!!!!
