We enjoyed our stay and especially loved the location. It’s a 30-second walk to the beach. The garage is small as described. We were able to utilize the garage as a carport by very carefully backing in our small SUV and leaving the door open. There was a good collection of cooking supplies and dishes, although no dishwasher which wasn’t a big deal for us.

Amazing location and super responsive hosts!! The house has everything you need for a fun trip to the beach! Parking is tight but there is a dedicated space which we appreciated. We had a slight issue and the hosts responded and fixed it right away. Perfect spot for a family vacation!

We truly enjoyed our wonderful staycation. Steps to the beach and just one street over from the bay (quieter and very relaxing). I especially loved my early morning walks along the boardwalk and the evening sunsets. Although it was warm, the numerous fans helped keep us cool inside. The communication was excellent which helped the process go super smoothly. We didn't do much cooking since there were so many restaurants within walking distance, but the kitchen was very cute!

We loved our stay at the red door house in Mission Beach! The location is amazing. Restaurants and the grocery store were all within walking distance. The size is perfect for a small family and thank you for providing sand toys, boogie boards, towels and beach chairs! We had the best time.

This place was perfect for our family get away! Its less then a minute walk to the beach with so many restaurants close by.

The garage is small and they did note that. My sisters Toyota Prius barely fit. So just keep that in mind.

Besides that everything else was GREAT!!!

Property has a great location steps away from the beach. We enjoyed have lunch and dinner on the front patio and the convenience of the location. This property isn’t the most modern but had what we needed for our family trip. You can’t beat the location. I would say this property is great for families but not with toddler aged children. Overall great experience.

Stop your search now, book this beautiful beach house! Kimberly was super responsive to all my questions before arrival and the attention to detail inside the home was much appreciated. The beach was 20 steps away from the front door and the outdoor patio with the picnic table was the cherry on top! We will absolutely be back 🙂

House was exactly as described. Steps from the beach which was super nice to be able to go back and forth if needed. Stores, food, and nightlife were all within walking distance so no need to drive anywhere. Response time from the host was great and the extra notifications about things going on around us was helpful.
