Awesome place exactly as described. Right next to the bay and the beach is a two min walk away. Parking space is very spacious, and so is the condo.

Highly recommend for a beach vacation. The condo is walking distance to the beach and they have a full storage shed of beach equipment (umbrella, wagon, chairs, etc.). Great set up!

Had a peaceful stay with my family. Everything was great. Due to the hot weather, the main drawback was the lack of air conditioning. Although we knew this at time of booking, trying to sleep with the heat and just fans was difficult. Otherwise we had a good stay, great location and matches the pictures.

This home is in a great location and is perfect for a family visit. The house was clean, comfy and had everything you needed for the stay. You're literally 100 steps from the bayside beach and the beach toys, chairs and umbrella made the trips to the beach awesome! Belmont Park is a short walk away and there are lots of awesome local restaurants to choose from. We would recommend this as your place to stay in the San Diego area!

Here's my experience of this particular rental unit-

1) Near the beach and bay
2) Unit itself was clean.
3)The management company is friendly.

1) I had difficulty getting initial check-in information. I had to reach out to the management company to get the "email" while on the road. Not in the time frame that was stated in the listing.
2) Lots of "rules" not tempered with a lot of fun ideas. This leads to #3!
3) Rental unit is part of an HOA, and tenants are NOT welcoming. We are not a "party group". Family of four! Overheard a tenant neighbor expressing complaints and negative comments about short-term renters.
4) Space is VERY limited. Not much in the way of extra storage if you want to have bikes or surf boards (rental or your own). Have to hang all towels, bathing and wetsuits inside the bathroom with shower, on stair railings, or backs of chairs. Also, I would really only consider 4 guests, more than that will be super tight.
5) No place to rinse sand off you or equipment when you return from the beach/bay. Keep in mind you'll be bringing all items into the unit with you.
6) Building and alley (where you enter and exit) is extremely dirty, it' pretty gross!
7) Washing machine stopped working at the start of our our visit and was never fixed.

All in all, if all you care about is proximity to beach/bay, this would work for you. But with so many other options in the area, I would look around first before renting this unit as it's missing some of the basic requirements needed for a comfortable beach stay.

No dishwasher!! I hate doing dishes on vacation and we did a lot. We have to cook our own breakfasts & dinners on vacay to stay on a budget, so having no dishwasher was horrible for us.
It was a very clean place. Wonderful location. So nice to have parking & a beach wagon & boogie boards etc.
The master bed was uncomfortable and didn’t have

This is a fine apartment in a great location. A few things to note: there is no AC and, even with the fans, it gets very hot upstairs. Be prepared for it to feel like summer! Also, there’s a coffee machine but no coffee provided, plan on going to the coffee shop a few blocks away.

There were a few hiccups out of our control (power outages and tsunami warnings) but she was able to help us immensely since we are not from the area. Communicate was prompt and extremely helpful.

If you sleep on the futon make sure you use the mattress pad in the closet.. that saved me the second night sleeping on it!!

Kimberly's place was awesome! Great location to both the bay and ocean. Lots of beach supplies, towels, shade, wagon and toys. The place was clean. The only thing I would have like to know prior to booking is the parking situation. We had two vehicles and had to move one car several times for overnight parking.

Fantastic place to stay in San Diego. I love the location, the quietness of the bay, and the place itself. Kimberly was in constant communication and I had no issues! I recommend for anyone who wants to enjoy the es of the beach vibes the neighborhood brings.

Narrow stairs getting into the place was our only real complaint. Otherwise it is a very comfortable place for a family of 4. Great location foe the bay and quick walk to the beach, also near Belmont park.

We just checked out this morning after an extended weekend stay. The property is exactly as it is listed. Great location, just a short walk to the ocean, and an even shorter walk to the quiet bay. There are tons of things to do and eat within walking distance, and others are just a short drive away. 5 adults stayed here comfortably and we enjoyed every minute. Thank you for sharing your wonderful property with us!

We have been visiting Mission Bay for 3 years straight every Memorial weekend. I did love the location of this little condo. You can't necessarily see a clear view of the bay, but it is literally steps from the bay. The parking spot is very tight but that is typical of the area. You do have to climb 2 sets of stairs to get to your door. We did have trouble with the key pad because the number given was incorrect, Kimberly was very quick to communicate with me and the issue was resolved fast!
The condo is small, a little too small for our taste. Also, I wouldn't recommend staying here with a younger toddler due to the stairs inside.
There were plenty of fans to use around the house. The kitchen was fully stocked which was great! However, when we did cook the smoke alarm always went on even though we had the stove fan on. The bathrooms where nice, only 1 shower, and it's upstairs. The windows let in the beautiful breeze which is always amazing! You can hear the airplanes pretty loud in this location but it didn't bother us.
Kimberly was great with notifying us on local events happening which was very helpful! I would recommend this place to others, I would probably not stay here again just due to size.

Price was reasonable for the place. Location was great, even though it was not on the beach. I would stay there again if furniture was replaced as it has reached its end of life. A littleTLC on doors, screen, and windows would make the place shine a bit more.

by Review from Airbnb Guest #104071


This is such a perfect home. The location is amazing — right next to a great Mexican takeout restraint and the famous BeachComber bar. It is also right next to the bayside beach which offers a calmer waterfront experience. The beach toys were also a great bonus. We had every kitchen item we needed and the wifi was perfectly for our remote work needs. Kimberly was super responsive and always ready to answer any questions. Some reviews say the space is small but we fit four young adults perfectly! I would definitely recommend staying here. One tip - bring quarters for the laundry machine.

"Super Cute Condo"

by Tina F


I will definitely be staying here again!! Kimberly was quick to respond and the condo was super cute and comfortable. Definitely felt like a local for the week!! And had a wonderful vacation.

"Great spot for a weekend getaway!"

by Madison M


Great space. 2 to 3 blocks from the ocean and 1 block from the bay! Enjoy the lively boardwalk and people watch - or have a calm and relaxing afternoon at the more "locals spot" by the bay. Everything you need is within walking distance - nightlife, market, and coffee shop! The actual location was a bit tricky to find, but after about 5 minutes of hunting we found our unit! Clean space that comfortably accommodated 4 women. Not a lot of spaces in San Diego feature AC, but there are plenty of fans within the unit to keep the circulation going. Small kitchen, but it was well equipped. Great spot for a weekend getaway!

"Lovely condo"

by Christina H


My brothers and I grew up in Kansas City, they had NEVER seen the ocean in their lives. We chose this condo due to its cleanliness, amenities, and location to the beaches. The Bay and the Beach were both beautiful in their own right. The condo is close to food, entertainment, and the local market was a very short walk. Kimberly, the Property Manager, was incredibly helpful, professional, and accommodating. Parking was tight, but well worth the squeeze LOL! Lovely condo, enjoyed the energy of the neighborhood!

"Great Communication"

by Anonymous


Great communication from booking through stay. Location perfect for us. Walked over to bird watch every morning on the bay side, walked over to ocean for beach walks and sunsets. Very comfortable cozy stay

"Perfect Location"

by Thomas L


Perfect location we were able to walk to Belmont park and all attractions in area. House was great. Reviews on parking were accurate. Don’t rent anything too large. We had a Charger and it fit but anything bigger might have issues. Beach was great. There is a great little closet - stocked with beach items it was perfect

by Ana Maria


Casa de Luz is very nicely furnished and the beds are very comfortable. The parking is a little hard since the only parking space is tight and the public parking lot nearby fills up fast. The location is perfect for beach goers and if you like the party vibe of Mission beach. We found the place very clean and had all the basic amenities expected. Nice pillows, towels and linens. Be aware that it lacks air conditioning, which appears to be common for the area. It got a bit stuffy and hot in there but the many fans available helped a lot. Overall we had a very good stay at Casa de Luz.

by Meredith


Location was perfect! The fact that there are TWO beaches within a TWO minute walk was absolutely amazing - the bay offered a quiet beach and calm water for relaxing, while the ocean offered big waves to play in and a fun atmosphere with nearby amenities. With 2 little ones in tow, we really appreciated the kid-friendly items in the condo, such as the beach toys and the plastic dishes in the kitchen! I was initially worried about the lack of air conditioning, but with the windows open and fans turned on, there was a nice breeze throughout the condo. The keyless door code was so convenient for easy in/out. The host Kimberley called and welcomed us on our first day, and responded immediately to questions via text. We would definitely come back here again.

Great location and great host! Our stay here was super enjoyable!!

Great Location!

by Eric


This was a great stay in San Diego and I definitely recommend it. She included beach essentials like chairs and umbrellas, extra beach towels, had a laundry on site and a parking spot. The location was right on the beach at Belmont Park and Mission Beach. We were close to downtown, sea world, pacific beach, and la jolla!

by Samantha


Great location for the beach and walking distance to cafes. Town house was the perfect size for a family of 4 with use of beach items kept in the car port. Everything we needed for a 3 day break in lovely San Diego. Clean and tidy with photos representative of the accommodation. There is a folder of local restaurants, supermarkets etc which was really useful when we arrived. Communicatedvia text ahead of arrival which was great if we’d needed anything. We had a Pathfinder vehicle that fitted into the car port- watch out for the poles and take it slowly when reversing. Definitely visit the Olive Cafe for breakfast.

by Lizette


We had a wonderful time at Casa del Luz! The location is great! Close to the beach, the bay, Belmont Park, restaurants, Sea World. We appreciated the beach chairs, umbrella, boogie boards, beach towels, sand toys, etc and the wagon to get them to the beach. Very comfortable home to stay in. We loved it! We will be back!

by Darci


Nina’s place was perfect for a small family ~ had plenty of beach toys, towels, umbrellas etc... just steps to the bay and just a 5 minute walk to the beach side where we spent all of our time. Response times on questions before arriving and during our stay was great. Thank you!!!

by Ainura


I loved it there and it was really nice and good for families. They have a good parking spot. The house come with beach toys, chairs and other things for your use.

Great location, clean, great amenities and easy check-in. Would rent again.

Nice place. The host was very responsive.

This house was great for a beach get-away. It was spacious and the house came with a surfboard and a wagon for going to the beach! Super helpful!

"Great location, well-stocked and nicely maintained!"

by Tricia F.


This was the perfect getaway for our family of four over Christmas! Kimberly was great to work with and made our rental and check-in very easy. We love Mission Bay and have rented several times in this immediate area over the last ten years (also just this past summer).

The unit was very clean and well-stocked! Hand-soaps, dish soap, paper products and trash bags were well-supplied (if you think this isn't important, you have never rented a property that supplies one roll of toilet paper, one hotel bar of handsoap and one trash bag!) It was so appreciated! After the stress of taking Christmas on the road, it was a sigh of relief not to have to run out to the grocery store in the final days before Christmas for the necessities.

Bedding and towels appear new or nearly new. There is plenty of dishware, serving dishes and cookware (we prefer to eat-in even on vacation!). We were only lacking a larger saucepan but made do with what was available. The appliances (including coffee pot and microwave) were in great shape and the brand-new quartz countertops were beautiful!

We spent an amazing Christmas morning enjoying our close location to the bay and our quick (less than five-minute) walk to the beach. The kids liked the close proximity to Belmont Park. The parking spot fit my Traverse without a problem (this is also a big deal if you have ever had to park in can be really a tight squeeze!)

We would definitely recommend this property and working with Kimberly. A fantastic experience, a great property and we appreciate it!


by Kimberly


The house was great! Great location. Property Manager was super sweet and easy to work with!

"Comfortable, Great Location"

by Jean W


Condo was nice and comfortable for 4 of us. It was well furnished with beach equipment, dishes etc. A great advantage was having the extra half bath in the unit as most in the area don't. We were right between the bay and ocean and within walking distance to convenience stores and a few restaurants. One drawback was the lack of air conditioning. Kimberly was nice enough to open everything up and turn on fans but it was still very hot during our stay in early August. (From what I understand, it is not uncommon for places in the area not to have A/C.) The only things I would improve on is that it could use a good, deep cleaning as windows, cabinets, range hood, etc were grimy. On the surface though, kitchen and bathrooms were clean. Lighting could also be improved as bulbs were fairly dim for reading in the evenings. Kimberly was also very helpful in recommending area restaurants and with just a little tweaking, I'd give the place 5 stars.
