Recent Mission Beach vacation rental reviews

The location was awesome, unless you demand water view. Very easy, minutes, walk to either the strand/ocean or the bay. So many coffeehouses, restaurants, fast/convenience foods, ice cream, groceries, you name it. Convenient to the airport, downtown, Interstates 5 and 8. The condo itself was lovely with a comfortable floor plan, well stocked kitchen and great appliances. We would not hesitate to stay in this unit again on our next visit.

The location is always excellent in Mission Beach. This rental had plenty of space for various spouses and a room for the adult children to share (3 beds in a room). Two things to consider - for property management, we could not get the garage code to work for parking, so we had to run to the other side to manually open, then manually close without hitting the ground sensors. For guests - there was not an option to load the garage with luggage prior to 4pm check-in time. Thankfully our previous rental let us keep our luggage in their until check-in. I could this being an issue for those traveling in straight from the airport.

Absolutely loved this unit. Very clean and well stocked for all our needs. Amazing location. The management company was amazing and very attentive with any questions we had. Propane tanks ran low and they had them replaced within the hour. I highly recommend this unit and we will rent again. It is a bit of a walk to crystal pier so i would recommend renting bikes if you plan to spend any time up there.

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!
