Recent Mission Beach vacation rental reviews

The place was clean with a lot of room. Had everything we would need and the location is perfect. Steps away from the beach and the best food spots. I frequent Mission Beach and this was definitely one of my favorite rentals. We received early check in for free which was great. If you rent a car that is lower, be careful pulling into the garage. I rented a camera and could not get it in due to scratching the bottom.

The location is perfect! The place is modern and clean. The kitchen is phenomenal…stocked with all you need to cook great meals. The patio has ample seating and the fire pit it awesome! A++ all around!

Great location, perfect oceanview, we fell asleep to the sounds of the ocean every night. House was close to restaurants and coffee places. We enjoyed walking to breakfast and lunch. House was very clean, enough space for 6 of us. Our only comments would be the BBQ did not work properly, spark lighter did not work so we had to use matches to light the BBQ. If you are cooking/serving dinner, be prepared that there are no spices to cook with (salt/pepper/etc.) and very few serving dishes, so bring your own. Also there were no cleaning products, we had to buy cleaning spray for the countertops. Although the floor plan was perfect for us, if you have anyone who has trouble with stairs you may consider another location. We would definitely stay again! Loved every minute of it.

Where is Mission Beach?

Mission Beach is located on the outskirts of sunny San Diego, approximately five miles south of the scenic community of La Jolla. This oceanside neighborhood, uniquely built atop a long sandbar separating the Pacific Ocean from Mission Bay, offers almost two miles of great beaches for sunning and surfing, two popular boardwalks for walking and biking, and a vibrant community with many adorable beach rentals.

Things to do in Mission Beach

You'll find that there's something for everyone when you stay in Mission Beach! A few of San Diego's most popular attractions, including SeaWorld San Diego and the historic seaside Belmont Park amusement park, are located right in this neighborhood. There are a variety of shopping, dining, and entertainment options located within walking distance from your vacation rental so don't worry about having to drive too far for fun.

Start your morning off right with a walk on the sandy beach, before heading to Belmont Park. This historic, family-friendly amusement park offers a mix of new and old rides, including the original wooden Giant Dipper Roller Coaster that was built in 1925. After you've ridden the roller coasters to your heart's content, grab a delicious dinner on the boardwalk. End your evening at one of the laid-back beach bars before heading home to your vacation rental for a restful night's sleep!

San Diego attractions

You'll find that one of the advantages of choosing one of our Mission Beach cottages or condos is the neighborhood's close proximity to downtown San Diego and other popular areas. The San Diego Zoo and downtown San Diego's Waterfront Park are both less than 10 miles away. Even closer to home, vibrant neighborhoods like Pacific Beach and, of course, beautiful Mission Bay offer more opportunities for shopping, dining, and nightlife.

For a beach vacation that offers a real slice of the local San Diego life, you can't beat booking one of our Mission Beach vacation rentals. Have some fun in the sun!
