We splurged on this stay for our last 2 nights of our trip and the view and hot tub were amazing. We also liked some of the perks that it came with such as a tower fan and full kitchen stock up with whatever we needed dish and utensil wise. It was very clean and we spent as much time outside as we could. The first night it rained and had lightening which was fun to see. We didn’t even realize the guests under us were there they were incredibly quiet the first night. Unfortunately, the second and final night the guests below did not adhere to the rules whatsoever. Kim was quick to help us out over some parking issues however the other guests came in after 2am being extremely rude and loud to the point it woke my husband, 9 month daughter and I out of a dead sleep. Unfortunately, after several hours of not being able to get back to sleep we had decided that we would just head home. We are very disappointed that due to the other guests our stay and trip ended the way it did and felt that it was a waste of money. Upon reaching out to Kim, I felt as if I almost was made to be at fault for not communicating more after explaining that we were so upset after the consistent issues that arose the very second the other guests arrived.
What a wonderful place! We loved watching sunrises on the patio and sunsets on the beach. The hot tub is the perfect place to unwind! Thank you!
Great host —super communicative and responsive from booking to checkout. Wonderful, comfortable, convenient and clean spot nearby stores, restaurants, and the beach with parking! Highly recommend!
Great location overlooking the bay side of the area. Quiet and relaxing. AC stopped working half way through our stay but I would definitely stay at this beautiful location again!
This place is awesome! We loved it here. It is a good size space for two people. The hot tub on the deck is the perfect way to start and end each day. It’s in a great location. It’s close to everything and a short 15-ish minute drive to downtown to catch a Padres game or whatever else you want to do. It’s very peaceful here. It’s great that you have your own parking space as parking spaces seem to be a luxury. It has air conditioning which is a bonus if you are warm blooded like myself. The bed is comfortable. The shower is great. We can’t wait to stay here again!
The most beautiful views, great location, and very clean! We loved our stay.
This unit is little more than a dorm room with a view. It is severely overpriced for what you get. While we loved the quiet location at the end of the strip on Mission Bay, the unit itself was a letdown. Even the outdoor area leaves a lot to be desired
Amazing location and getaway. We found it was exactly as advertised. Host was very responsive to a concern about the AC and the owner came and fixed it right away. Location can’t be beat. Parking was so easy and convenient at the house. Walking distance to restaurants, coffee, and shops. Would love to return!
Awesome place to stay!
Great location! Wonderful place to stay.
Absolutely fantastic stay can not recommend this stay enough, I’m sure any of the three levels would be a great stay, from the views to the hot tub to the location and parking space. 10/10 would and will do again.
Great place to stay. Amazing view.
Great location, views, and amenities. We will be back!
The owners were super kind and even appeared in person when our a/c unit had an issue. It was quickly fixed. The property management had a different vibe and was a bit less on it so far as communication and follow through. The place itself is wonderful! You do hear the lower unit on the stairs and walking about - normal noise, nothing offensive - so if you are very, very noise sensitive, it’s not the kind of penthouse where you feel removed and secluded. The close distance to food without reservations, the bay and the ocean were divine!! We especially loved Ms. B’s Coconut Club.
We had a lovely time and the view and beach access was amazing!
WOW! what a beautiful stay!!!!! everything i expected and more. i appreciated being in front of the bay rather than ocean front. a lot more private and quiet but still so close to the ocean. prime location & parking! worth every penny.
Great location! We had a perfect getaway and can’t wait to visit again.
Wow! This is The PERFECT getaway for two . It has something for everyone regardless of how you define rest and relaxation. Looking for a place to just hole up? You’d be hard-pressed to do better. If you’re the kind of person that likes daily adventures and activities, there are more then you can shake a stick at within walking (or maybe a short drive) distance. You’re sitting on a peaceful bay , ideal for paddle boarding, snorkeling, bike riding and more. Right across the street is another beach (this one on the Pacific Ocean) where surfing and boogie boarding conditions are outstanding. If you need some nightlife, there are so many choices that deciding will be your biggest challenge. We’ve already booked another stay!
Can’t say enough nice things about our three days in Mission Beach at this awesome space! We rode bikes everyday, loved the views from the deck, the location (close to so much) without being noisy, and having the option to relax in the hot tub was a perfect extra!! We had great communication with the owners, and took many of their local recommendations! Truly a great stay, and so happy we found this gem! We will be back, and need to remember to book in advance
Perfect getaway weekend, Location and views are awesome. Right on the water and close to everything! Kimberly responds to every question right away. One of the bikes had a flat tire and she had it fixed within an hour or so. Best part was the views and jacuzzi!!!
Perfect spot for our honeymoon! The view is phenomenal and it was so cool to see the fireworks from sea world. Close to so many restaurantsand nightlife so youcan walk anywhere. My favs were intazza coffee(coffee is not provided at this Airbnb) and now sushi!
Best views! Best location!
Had an unforgettable trip to San Diego thanks to Kimberly's place. We used the bikes a ton and the area is super easy to get around. Not far from the airport, La Jolla, or downtown.
Kim was very quick at responding, was helpful notifying you of local events, we had fireworks both nights we can see from SD Seaworld.
Amazing views overlooking Mission Beach with a cozy jacuzzi. My fiancé and I stopped here for our anniversary as we had been traveling for over a week. The days spent here were relaxing and definitely romantic. Highly recommend!
Amazing place perfect location
Excellent location and views. Sit out on the balcony and people watch while enjoying the amazing weather. The beach is literally right out the front door. If you’re wanting the ocean vibe, it is about a two minute walk to the other side of the strip. The hot tub at night was very relaxing. Perfect spot for a couples weekend. It is small, but you won’t spend much time inside anyways. The convenience of the deck/patio and mere steps to the beach make stress drift away. Cheers to a good time.
This spot was perfect! Seconds to the ocean, but I loved the bay side it was much more quite for late night hot tubs! Walking to many shops and food to! Kimberly was very responsive with any questions we had! We loved this stay, will 100% be back in the future !
Had a nice stay. The location was primo and the unit was clean. All check-in details were accurate and timely. Had an issue night #2 and the hot tub was not working.. they responded quickly and had it repaired same day. Very timely, professional, & quick. Even credited us for one night due to the inconvenience. Had a nice time and will definitely come back to visit again soon! A great little weekend getaway.
It was a great location. Check in and out was super easy! The hot tub on the deck was wonderful!
This place is fantastic. The location and the hot tub were great, we were out there every night! Beautiful rooftop view of the bay and stars. Couldn’t ask for more.
This penthouse apartment is PERFECT for a couple. We stayed for over a week on our honeymoon and enjoyed every bit of this slice of heaven. Steps to the bay AND beach, amazing restaurants, shops and places to rent water toys within walking distance. The deck and private hot tub with the most amazing view overlooking the bay is everything you'd want out of your dream vacation spot. Bathroom is large and very beautifully redone, closet was extremely spacious and very helpful with keeping organized, and the king sized bed was super comfortable! Parking is easy with a spot reserved for the penthouse and laundry (which is private to the building, not just private to the penthouse) was easy to use and really helpful to have access to. If we had to nitpick - even though we were on the top floor, the steps of the people staying in the other apartments were loud, however it was never excessive and did not affect our stay at all. If you're a couple looking for a romantic, chill, fun place to stay - BOOK IT!
Amazing location right on the water. Cute rooms and stylish unit.
This place was great! Quaint and small but had everything you needed. The outside deck and jacuzzi was awesome! It made the space feel very open and large! Lots of stairs so if you have bad knees I would try for one of the lower floors. Other than that it’s wonderful. Want to go back!
Great place to stay, great view
This property was amazing! Right on the beach with everything you need to safely staycation and relax.
This was an excellent place to get away to for a few days. We loved the space and it was a perfect location on the bay. We did hear noise each night but felt like a relatively small amount because it was such a private space. The jacuzzi was amazing and we used it more than we anticipated. Kimberly was a great host and very responsive and accommodating.
We celebrated our 10th anniversary at the Magical Mission Beach home & couldn’t have been happier. The location is perfect, walking distance to everything you need, right on/above the boardwalk, the view of the bay & the city is amazing, & you can hear the pacific crashing just a couple of blocks behind you. The mission beach area is very active with plenty to do, yet peaceful & quiet at the same time. The accommodations themselves were outstanding. It is the prettiest & most unique home on the boardwalk. Entrance is private, safe, convenient. Perfect size for a couple. Everything is beautifully designed, comfortable, & spacious while cozy. The rooftop is amazing. It’s private & in the middle of the all the activity at the same time. It’s large with plenty of comfortable seating & table with umbrella. We had dinner on the roof every evening. The jacuzzi is clean & comfortable & it’s the most peaceful place I could imagine to look out over the city at night. Kim & Michael were very friendly & made sure we had a nice stay. Definitely would return!
Wonderful place. Just what the Dr. ordered. Attentive and courteous staff. We would live here, if we could.
Awesome beach house with a cool rooftop hot tub. Super clean and very comfortable stay. Definitely recommend this place!
This place is amazing! It’s in the perfect location. The views from the deck are beautiful, pictures don’t do justice. The room was very clean and well stocked. We loved our stay, we definitely will be back
Can’t beat the view. Very easy check in and check out. About as good as it gets for a place to stay in San Diego
An amazing place! We enjoyed the private deck with hot tub and couldn’t have asked for a better stay.
The penthouse was absolutely amazing! The host was great, the place was clean, lots of amenities were included that I did not expect! I believe we had one of the best locations in the area!
This place is everything and more. We’d stay again if we should come back. Very clean, and beautiful.
Great location! You feel like you’re right on the water and the private jacuzzi with endless bay views is a wonderful perk!
Stylish studio and steps from the beach! Everything was clean and well organized
Property Manager made us very comfortable. She was always available if needed. There is a coded lock to get into the building and another into our studio so we felt very secure. We had a great time.
Everything was wonderful and allowed us to have a very relaxing but active vacation.
The property was beautiful with a full bay view and the beach was a short walk across the strand. We had a very relaxing time watching all that went on around us including paddle board yoga! We had a delightful dinner at Oceana restaurant, a short walk from our penthouse.
This is a great location and property. You have everything you need for a relaxing vacation.
Loved this cute spot! Great location for bay and beach access. Many shops and restaurants within walking/ biking distance. Owner is very helpful and use of bikes and paddle boards was a nice bonus!
I cannot say enough amazing things about this place. The location, the view, the peacefulness. It was everything we hoped it would be, and more. We will definitely be returning in the future. I wish this house was my own! Leaving was extremely hard!
Studio unit with everything you'll need for a relaxing get-away. Property Manager was incredibly receptive to any need and the owners Joe & Debby Lynn were fantastic hosts. The view from the rooftop deck while sitting in the hot tub and looking over Sail Bay was so beautiful. Already looking at returning soon!
This place is beautiful. Great neighborhood. There was so many bars and restaurants and cafes walking distance. The penthouse was charming and comfy. I loved the weekend we got to spend here.
The unit was clean and the pictures do not do it justice on how nice it is. The views were great. We used the hot tub daily. The owner, Joe, was very amicable and accommodating. We had a great time in San Diego.
This little studio with huge deck and hot tub was the perfect "nest" for me to visit my daughter and her family in San Diego. Being on the third floor makes it oh so private. I was only steps away from family, food, drink, biking, walking, you name it! If you want to visit the kids and also stay out of the fray, this is the spot! I'll be back!
We stayed in this unit with our two kids (ages 5 years and 6 months) and had a wonderful time! Lori and Don were very welcoming, responded to our last minute rental request promptly and were super accommodating (even allowed us to change the dates we were staying due to unforeseen circumstances). The unit’s location was absolutely perfect. Right on the beach, on the bay side - our son played in the sand right in front of the house while we watched him (and everyone else walking by) right from the beach chairs on the patio. Bliss! The bay side was perfect for staying here with kids - quieter and less windy than the ocean side. There was plenty of space for all of us, and it was great to have a kitchen, although we most often got takeout or ate at nearby places - within three minutes walking distance there were several great breakfast, lunch and dinner places. Trader Joes is just a 5 minute drive away and was perfect for stocking up on snacks and drinks. We used the bicycles, kayaks, and sand toys that came with the unit, and the wifi had enough bandwidth for streaming Netflix movies. All in all, we had an amazing time and would love to go back!
