Studio penthouse on top of the "Ironic" Sand Castle - Door to sand in 0.02 seconds!

Feel the stress melt away the instant you arrive atop this award-winning home on beautiful Mission Bay! The rooftop deck creates an amazing setting for your getaway, from the inspiring morning sunrise to incredible sunset views -- all from the privacy of your privileged viewpoint.

The bathroom has been completely retiled with an oversized shower, new windows and new vanity. You’ll also benefit from a RESERVED TANDEM PARKING SPACE for 2 VEHICLES -- priceless at the beach!

After coffee and people-watching above the boardwalk, grab the bikes or walk to the local shops and markets, or pick from an assortment of great breakfast cafes within a few blocks. There’s no shortage of shops or restaurants within easy walking distance at any time of day.

For the active and adventurous, take advantage of our BOOGIE BOARDS and/or KAYAKS, all onsite and available for guests’ use.

And don’t forget to wind down in your PRIVATE HOT TUB overlooking the sweeping panoramic view of Mission Bay -- with a glimpse of an ocean view to the west. Relax and enjoy! It’s a great place to watch San Diego come alive on the bay and boardwalk.

With an interior stairwell and a separate entrance and security gate off the deck, the penthouse is completely private from the rest of the house.

Activities outside your door range from swimming, kayaking, boating, to wind surfing, sailing, jet skiing and canoeing. Witness kids building sandcastles (or build your own!) or just watch all the friendly walkers, joggers and cyclists along the beach from your front row seats overlooking the boardwalk.

Within easy walking distance and visible from the deck is the MISSION BAY AQUATIC CENTER, one of the largest instructional waterfront facilities in the world! You can join classes to experience the fun of surfing, sailing, wake boarding, wake surfing, stand up paddling, water skiing, rowing, kayaking, and windsurfing. Tens of thousands of people have learned to safely enjoy watersports at Mission Bay Aquatic Center over the past 45 years.

Join the San Diego snorkeling tours in the amazing La Jolla Cove area. You will learn how to snorkel with tons of fish, sea lions & the seven sea caves along the beautiful ocean cliffs and explore the ecological reserve throughout the protected marine area.

This is one of three vacation rental units in this large, unique home that just completed a contemporary facelift. If you have a larger group, contact us for more information on how to combine the other beautifully custom units in this home to accommodate your group.

"Excellent Place"

by Kyle M

10/27/2020

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.

"10th Anniversary perfect vacation"

by Elizabeth F

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!

"It is a cute studio apartment on the third floor. From the deck you can see the beach/bay 50 ft away"

by Susan W.

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.

"view with a private hot tub"

by diane a.

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.

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!

"Charming place with awesome view!"

by Stephen L.

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!

"Beautiful place. Amazing location. I would stay here again in a heartbeat."

by DANIEL B.

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.

"Great place. Perfect for my wife and I."

by Michael H.

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.

"Perfect spot on the Bay!"

by Lynne S.

07/02/2014

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!

"Great place to stay with kids!"

by Jane N.

03/30/2014

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!
