The neighbors were friendly and chipper to speak with. Day one I got approved to check in early so I could unload my paddle board, parked the car there and went to Belmont park all afternoon. Saturday I took my family to Crushed, then to San Diego Harley Davidson for the car & bike show. Picked up a second paddle board and hung out in the bay the rest of the day. The next day my sister and I took the two paddle boards out to the channel and watched a seal play in the morning stillness then Ubered for $9 to Sea world and spent the whole day there. Monday we relaxed then took my 10 yr old nephew to the Belmont pool. We tested out our fishing skills our last night out in the bay. We checked out on Tuesday morning and left it just as the instructions said to.

We loved our stay near Mission Beach. The location was PERFECT for single families with small children, and the included parking spot was much appreciated since on-street parking was pretty packed. The property was easy to get to, as described, very comfortable, and in a peaceful and safe neighborhood. We would love to stay here again.

Great location in South Mission. Quiet neighborhood. Place even had a view of the water from the kitchen and living room. Walkable to great beaches and surf. Perfect spot.

I had a great stay. It was clean, in a quiet neighborhood and close to both the ocean and the bay. It was small which was perfect for me as a solo traveler and would be great for a couple (but more than that might feel cramped). Hosts were helpful and very communicative. My Toyota Camry fit perfectly in the parking space but a larger vehicle would be tight. Overall a wonderful stay and I would stay again.

This beach getaway was perfect for our 4 day vacay. It was easy to find and walking distance to both the beach and the bay. There were delicious quick eateries we could walk to as well. We brought our paddle boards and carried them to the bay to paddle around. We also had bikes and rode to Belmont Shores to eat and shop. The house had everything we needed to cook and feel comfortable. Loved that it was on the second story so we could see all around us. Great place. I highly recommend it and will be using it again in the future.

not too far from the action (restaurants and family activities) but far enough for peace. just a couple minuteswalk to the bay or the beach!

My only issue with this property is the change policy. I understood there was a no cancellation policy, but did not know I would not be able to change. Consequently, I paid for a day I did not use.

The place could not have been better for us! The size was perfect for my husband and I. It was very clean, the bed was comfortable, the bathroom was very nice and having the washer/dryer was definitely an added bonus. The location was also perfect - walking distance to so many different things and quiet (other than the airplanes constantly flying above), safe neighborhood. We were very satisfied and would stay there again in a heartbeat!

Our stay was wonderful! The unit was clean and airy. It is very thoughtfully laid out and was the perfect spot for our SDSU Parent’s Weekend. The location is fabulous. We enjoyed being steps to the bay and ocean and close to many restaurants and shops. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to come back!

"Airbnb Review #729801307212564022 #173158"

by Review from Airbnb Guest #173158


This is a really nice 1-bedroom place. We really enjoyed our stay.

The positive:
- Really nice unit, well furnished, clean and everything feels new, comfortable and in working order.
- It is really close to a really nice beach (and they have a pair of folding chairs for you), so if that's what you are planning for your stay, it's an amazing location.
- This unit has its own parking which in that area is a very good bonus. Saying that, it is tiny, so if you are renting a car this is not the time to pick up the huge minivan. Got for the smaller cars.

BTW, the entrance and parking lot are not at the shared address, but on the street on the other side. Follow the written instructions and not your GPS.

The not so positive:
- Noise! This place is super noisy.
- The primary nuisance are the planes flying over, making a lot of noise starting before 7am.
- You can hear EVERYTHING. Anyone talking on the street, or the washer machine downstairs.
- It is kinda far from anything (except the beach). If you are planning to go to other places, be prepared to spend some time getting in and out of the neighborhood. Not that many food or shopping options (but they do exist...) in a walking distance.
- They only allowed us to check in at 4pm and were very clear that they expected us to check out at 10am. I usually expect the usual 3pm for check-in and and 11am for checkout, but did not get it here. (they did let us know we can check in earlier than 4pm, but that was last minute, when we already planned to not come before 4pm).

Just to be aware:
- The unit is on the 2nd floor, and to reach it you have to climb quite steep stairs in a quite narrow stairwell.

Great location, nicely updated unit with everything you'll need to enjoy the stay. We biked up and down the strand every day and enjoyed everything Mission Beach and Pacific Beach had to offer. Parking was also convenient as it is right in front of the door and I was able to fit my Tesla Model Y in the space. Would definitely stay here again.

Great location and the apartment was well laid out, spacious, and modern (it was my husband and me). You can go to the beach (chairs, boogie boards, umbrella, and towels provided) or go over to the quiet side of the bay. Everything we did was about 15-20 minutes away - we went kayaking in La Jolla, visited Coronado Island, and went downtown for an event at the Convention Center. Of note, my VW Golf fit the parking space for the apartment perfectly with little space to spare. Belmont Park is about a 15-20 minute walk.

This unit was perfect for our girls weekend getaway! The place was just enough space for the four of us, and we appreciated how clean and organized it was. The location of this listing was so convenient. The beach was steps away and great restaurants in the area as well. The host was extremely helpful in our communication before our stay. I look forward to staying here again!

"Couldn’t have asked for a better VRBO"

by Mia L.


Absolutely loved this beautiful house! All the comforts of home and just steps away from the beach. The bed, sheets, towels..top notch. Kitchen very well stocked, living room comfy cozy yet spacious. Management was at my fingertips with any questions I may have had requarding the property as well as local surrounding and activities.
I will definitely return and stay here and I will highly recommend it to all of my friends!

"Perfect Everything - 5-Stars!!!"

by Lynne, From Soquel, CA


This is a great location, adorable place with all the amenities you need. The host is so accommodating and quick to answer any questions or concerns. I would most definitely be a guest again. It was clean and well stocked for anything you might need. Parking was convienant and a short walk to the beautiful ocean! Loved it!!! 🙂

"Truly Wonderful!"

by Matthew, From Hopkinton, MA


This apartment was truly wonderful for our family of 4 (2 adults and 2 children ages 10 & 8). The location with the bayside steps away and the oceanside a 3 min walk away was spectacular! The apartment was spotlessly clean and new and fun. The ocean breeze was cooling and great. The hosts had boogie boards, beach chairs, great beach towels, and a beach umbrella all ready to go and easy to carry and with this location that was all we needed. The whole mission beach area was young and lively and the apartment was the perfect spot to participate in it all and then come back and relax and make ourselves a good meal. We had a great time. Thank you Kimberly!
