Guest Reviews

Great weekend getaway! by Zach S. 09/27/2019
Great location on Mission Bay and only a few hundred yards from Mission Beach. The owner was extremely pleasant and easy to work with. The beach cruisers and lounge chairs were ours to use when we wanted. The roof top patio with hot tub has amazing views of the bay and is a great place to relax. There is no kitchen, however, the mini fridge, coffee/tea maker, and microwave were more than enough for what we needed. Plenty of restaurants in walking or biking distance! Highly recommended for a romantic getaway.
Conference Call! by Yvonne G. 04/12/2019
We were in town as business professionals in order to attend a conference at the San Diego Conference Center. The fact that it was close to downtown but yet felt secluded from the noise was amazing. Having parking was a must and the garage provided us that. The house is amazing. Thank you
Castle on top of the world... by Jackie L. 10/16/2015
We spent four nights in paradise. The suite in the sky was meticulously maintained with a pelican theme and was extremely comfortable. We rode bikes on the boardwalk, kayaked the bay and took morning strolls on the beach. Highly recommend for a quiet get away.
Favorite Place to Stay on Mission Bay! by Alice 09/22/2015
Perfect location for so many beach activities! I enjoyed both worlds with provided Boogie Boards on the Beach and Paddle Boards and Kayaks on the Bay. Bikes are also provided, so I didn't need to drive my vehicle as everything was close. The new updates to the room were beautiful!
Sup n' Cruise by Hope 05/12/2015
We stayed for a quick weekend and the Sandcastle was perfect! The private deck and amazing view made you feel like you owned the place. The location was clutch, very close to a ton of little cafes and shops. We enjoyed the activities at the Sandcastle nestled on Sail Bay, complete with beach cruisers and stand up paddle boards. We can't wait to visit again next year! Thank you for the wonderful hospitality!!
Perfect! by Julie 11/02/2014
My husband and I stayed in the rooftop room for a weekend. It was everything we hoped for and more. The room is clean and the bed is super comfy. The view from the private deck is beautiful!! We took full advantage of the paddle board, kayak and bikes. Location is perfect (steps away from bayside beach and a few min walk to ocean beach) and the owners made sure we had everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable. I would definitely recommend this rental!!! There are a lot of stairs and the tub is a little hard to get in and out so maybe not for someone who has trouble with stairs (try the lower level). Would LOVE to visit this home again!!
A Place above the bay by Sandra B. 10/17/2014
First and foremost, Thank you for making me feel so at home. What a special place to stay love the privacy of the top deck and hot tub. We stayed for the weekend of my nephews wedding @ sunset cliffs 20 min away. My Brother and his wife came on Saturday and we took advantage of all the toys.. bikes .. paddle board ... and kayak. Thank you again for your wonderful hospitality. I plan on coming back soon if available because it is a hidden gem.
Terrific Property by Richard 08/11/2014
My wife and I had a wonderful experience at this property this summer. The unit is very comfortable, very clean, has a large deck with an umbrella table, a spa and an elevated portion of the deck with an additional table for dining/ games, etc. The view of Mission Bay is terrific. They also have bikes, kayaks, and beach chairs available for use by the renters.
Family Vacation by Wife and Husband 06/01/2014
My wife and I have stayed here several times and we just love it! This time we brought our son and his friend also my parents who just loved it. We stayed in both top and bottom floors. My favorite if it's just two of you is top floor. We've stayed at several places over the years on the bay and beach and bar none this is the best! The location and the views are incredible you won't be disappointed. They supply you with bikes, paddle board, kayaks, boogie boards, beach chairs, umbrellas you name it it's probably there. Bay is there every morning you wake up to enjoy and the beach is a short walk across the street to also enjoy it's the best of both worlds. We will be back again and again!
What a view! by Wife and Husband 05/16/2014
My wife and I spent our first anniversary weekend here. The location was great and the rental was perfect for our taste...it had everything we needed. The property owners were extremely helpful upon arrival and made sure we had everything we needed. The keurig coffemaker and off-street parking spot were great bonuses.

The view from the decks is amazing...we had a hard time leaving to explore San Diego because we found ourselves missing the deck. The hot tub was great as well. We enjoyed being able to walk to Pacific Beach in the evenings for a drink/dinner and there were plenty of restaurants close by.

The only thing we wished at times was that the unit had air conditioning. This would almost never be an issue, but we happened to be there for a few days of 90+ degree temps...certainly not normal San Diego weather. The unit cooled off nicely in the evenings and there were 2 fans available that kept us pretty comfortable during the day. Also, the bath tub/shower is a bit tough to get in/out of...this wasn't an issue for us but could be for others.

Overall, this property is highly recommended and we are hoping to come back and hopefully be able to enjoy a full week there next time!
Exellent vacation by Pat S. 08/16/2013
Wonderful vacation. The rooftop deck is huge and we pretty much lived there sunrise to bedtime, and enjoyed panoramic views, walking distance to restaurants, ocean beaches, and bay beach at the foot of the stairs. The hosts were flexible and accommodating and we had a great time using the tandem kayak.
Beautiful view by AmazedUrah 08/11/2013
Very clean, very friendly helpful 2nd floor residents, the view can't be beat, the deck and hot tub were amazing. The area is quiet right on the sand, the busier ocean side of mission beach is a 5 min walk away. Very close to shops and restaurants. Don't miss the Mission for breakfast but know the food is amazing and huge portions.
Great Location, quiet and very accessible to Mission Beach and bayside by Charles 07/27/2013
The location of the property is great because it is within walking distance to Mission Beach. It is on the bay side and has a great view of the water. The bedroom has plenty of space for a couple with two couches and a walk-in closet. We did not get to use the refrigerator and microwave as it was not in the bedroom. The bathroom was fine but just be aware that the tub is unique in that it is like a freestanding bathtub and is a little hard to get into. They provided bikes, kayaks etc to use as a part of your stay. It was lovely and I recommend staying here. I did not have time to use the hot tub but it looked clean and easy to use.
Fabulous Rooftop Room by Kathy B. 07/12/2013
Unfortunately, I was unable to go due to a serious back injury, which I'm still recovering from. I can't say enough about the owners as they were very understanding and accommodating. As soon as I'm recovered I won't hesitate to book here again!!!
A Little Glimpse of Heaven! by Becca 04/13/2013
I can't say enough good things about our stay in the rooftop room. I was just re-living our trip and realized I didn't leave a review before.

I loved everything about this room! The private rooftop deck with the hot tub were obviously great, but I never expected the bed and pillows to be so comfortable! I've never slept so good away from home, and often enough not that good at home either! Seriously--I emailed when I got home to ask where they bought the pillows and have since purchased my own set. 🙂

My husband and I went back and forth when deciding whether to rent this room or not, because it seemed small and my husband prefers a modern feel. I'm so glad we didn't turn down the opportunity to stay here! It had plenty of space for our needs, and as it turned out, we spent most of our time kayaking or biking around, playing beach games, or just sitting in beach chairs--the owners really provided everything we would need to enjoy our stay! And whenever we needed rest, our room was perfectly quiet any time of day.

We would visit twice a year if we could just arrange babysitting that often!
Excellent Wonderful Stay!!! by Leo M. 10/13/2012
I was in SD on business. The rooftop studio was perfect. I had a great view of the Bay, sunrise every morning. Hot Tub was a nice, clean & pretty cool.

Hosts are terrific people, highly recommend.
Great room, great owner by Nicholas P 04/16/2011
I had a wonderful time renting this unit. The owner is extremely nice and accommodating and the rooftop deck is the highlight of the rental, which overlooks the bay and is very quiet and relaxing. I rented the room with a friend, but would highly recommend for a couple looking for a getaway.

Thanks again for the great experience and hospitality!
Great Property by Eric A. 02/25/2011
I had high expectations and I was not remotely disappointed! Not only is it a nice and comfortable room, the owner's are fantastic! It is conveniently located to everything and a really nice neighborhood. I plan on returning here often!
