A Message from the Owner:
We are thankful to be able to provide this lovely Mission Beach home where families from all over the world have stayed, made memories, and filled our guest books with love. Twenty years ago we bought this beach house that our family had rented for many summer vacations starting when our children were babies. We love this house and always called it our beach house; even before we bought it. One summer we arrived to find our beach house was For Sale! It is a dream come true to own this house and we are very thankful for all the fun times it has provided with our friends and family. We look forward to spending many happy years with our children and someday, hopefully, their children in this special place. When we're not at the beach, we live in Scottsdale, Arizona. We have been married for 40 years and have three now grown sons. We love all that San Diego has to offer and never get tired of acting like tourists.

The only negative thing we experienced were ants on the counters when we got there. We love the place. Beds we’re comfortable and everything was accessible! I want to come again!

"Perfect Mission Beach vacation! #228118"

by Review from Hosted Guest Review Form #228118

10/29/2023

Our family had a perfect vacation at the ‘Dollhouse’. Here are some things we loved:
- Great location. Super close to the beach, yet quiet.
- Immaculately clean. Lots of extra towels and everything needed to cook. It’s so convenient to have a washer/dryer in the unit.
- Family friendly. Crib, high-chair, and everything we needed for our child.
- Great amenities. Beach chairs, shades, and toys. The owners also left a helpful list of nearby restaurants and attractions.

The Dollhouse felt like home during our stay and we can’t wait to go back!

"Wonderful Place"

by Stephanie Q.

We had a wonderful time here. It is so close to the beach and the park. We really enjoyed the fully stocked kitchen and bathroom.

"Location! Location! Location! Pacific paradise"

by Jess H.

06/11/2023

Thank you Nancy for sharing your beautiful home, and to your property management being so accommodating! This was by far one of the best VRBO homes we stayed at. From location to get places, to the board walk, and easy access to go eat at great places. Also all the little amenities that you provided in your home, to all the beach toys, chairs, and umbrellas. The garage was a very nice added bonus. We rented surf boards, wet suits, and rollerblades. Our last full day we did 6 miles on the rollerblades with the stroller in tow. USS Midway was an incredible ship to go and visit could have spent a couple days there. La Jolla being so close to take the kids to see the sea lions, they loved it! From the bottom of our Wisconsin hearts, thank you so much. Well done, keep up the amazing work! Epic trip!

"Family getaway to San Diego"

by Jen & Aaron M.

04/19/2023

The weather wasn't the best, but the Dollhouse was perfect and kept us warm and dry. Cozy, cute apartment with everything we needed for a quick San Diego family getaway. So nice to have a washer and dryer after time at the beach with kids! Close to everything, and the extra parking spot was a huge help. Communication was so seamless I had no reason to reach out for anything, but definitely felt that I could have at any time. Thank you!

"Fantastic Beach Vacation"

by Terry Jr. M.

04/16/2023

Greatly enjoyed our beach house near Mission Beach. We spent lots of time 100 meters away at the beach and boardwalk. Didn't need a rental, we used Uber the whole week to lots of fun destinations, including Sea World, San Diego Zoo, La Jolla and Balboa Park. The property was very comfortable for our family of five and provided excellent kitchen activity. Would definitely use again.

"Excellent stay!"

by Kathryn W.

03/08/2023

Our family had a great time at the Dollhouse. The location is perfect - 30 second walk to the beach is key with a 2 year old 🙂 The apartment had everything you'd need + parking was a huge plus!

"Sweet Location!"

by Debbie B.

01/06/2023

Just one block from the beach!! Nancy has organized and outfitted this place with everything you will need to cook, relax and enjoy the beach. All kitchen appliances and utensils are high quality, too! Even the towels are perfect. Beds are comfy. Beach decor compliments the cottage. Plenty of beach chairs and toys. Easy communication between us, Nancy, the owner, and Kimberly, the property manager. They checked to see if we had everything we needed! Seems silly to mention, but, the cottage has toilet paper, paper towels, ziplocks, spices, coffee filters, etc. And, finally, BIG BONUS-there’s garage parking AND an extra parking spot large enough for a big SUV. We will definitely come back here again!

"Best Vacation Ever"

by Caroline C.

10/28/2022

We are a family of 4, and this was our first trip to San Diego. The place was fantastic! The location really made our trip, being so close to the beach, we couldn't have picked a better location. The owner and property manager were great with all of our needs, and the welcome package of information was so appreciated! The place was equipped with everything we needed for beach days, and it was nice having Belmont Park and the new playground just a short walk down the boardwalk! We couldn't have asked for a better location! We are hoping to visit again!

"Great Location"

by Diane T.

09/06/2022

It was great to be just one street from the beach and close to restaurants. The property manager was helpful and we were allowed to get in a bit early. The only drawback was that it was the hottest week of the year and the unit has no AC. Not their fault but even with fans it was pretty uncomfortable during our time. I should have read the fine print better. I'm sure most of the year it would be just fine.

"Great location!"

by Shelley J.

08/07/2022

The apartment was comfortable, clean and well-stocked with essentials. It was a hot week and we appreciated the ceiling fans and window fans in every room. You really can’t beat the location (steps from the beach and a short walk to Belmont Park). I was able to fit our Mazda CX-5 in the garage after several attempts to get it lined up right, so I wouldn’t try anything bigger. But the extra parking spot is super close and works for a larger car. It’s so helpful to have an extra parking spot by the beach! There is no direct ocean view from the apartment, but it’s more private than the other units - it’s upstairs over the garage so you don’t have people walking past all day. Would definitely rent this place again.

"Absolutely recommend!"

by Briana O.

06/07/2022

Two friends and I stayed here. There was absolutely enough room for us to be comfortable. You cannot beat the location. Not only would I recommend this place, but I genuinely hope I get to stay here again!

The Doll house was great! Clean, nicely decorated, comfortable, well stocked perfect parking, great location. Nancy and her manager Kimberly are wonderful we didn’t want to leave and can’t want to go back!!!!

"Amazing stay!"

by Diane C.

05/25/2022

This property was fantastic! It was exactly as it was listed- it was clean, comfortable and well stocked! The location was perfect, 30 second walk to the beach and just a short drive to the airport and into downtown. I had a special visit with my daughter, who is stationed on Coranado and it was the perfect mix of seeing San Diego and all it has to offer and relaxing in this great property! I hope to be back soon and I definitely hope to stay at the Dollhouse again!

"Great location"

by Matt O.

05/14/2022

The accommodations were perfect: location from beach, amenities, and cleanliness. Owners were very accommodating and helpful. Would highly recommend!

"Perfect Family Getaway"

by Brandy N.

05/01/2022

We loved this spot! You are just steps away from the beach, but tucked away from crowds and noise. Belmont Park and the Bonita Cove Playground are just short walks away, and our girls loved both. The property was clean and the perfect size for our small family.

"SD"

by Erin D.

04/26/2022

The home was exactly as advertised. The location was great. The rental is on the smaller side but totally worked for us. The owner communicated in a very timely fashion and was very responsive. We didn't have any issues. Thanks for a great stay!

"Excellent Stay"

by Sabrina A.

04/25/2022

Was amazing- everything we needed was provided- beds are amazingly comfortable. Quiet and perfect for a couple!

"Cozy Beach Bungalow"

by Mark B.

04/19/2022

What a great property for our small family of four! Just the right size and so close to the beach that it was easy to go back for lunch or the restroom. Would definitely visit again!

"Perfect home for beach access"

by Chris E.

04/14/2022

Thanks for the wonderful home for our week in San Diego. Access to the beach and the bay was perfect for my kids. The home was cozy and the kids loved the little loft. Plus, the 2 parking spots was quite a nice touch. We parked outside and stored our bikes and paddle board in the garage. We cooked a lot of meals and found the kitchen to be well stocked. (could use a few more forks though). Thanks again!

"Spring Break Fun"

by Kara S.

04/02/2022

This is a great little property! Literally 30 seconds walk (at most) to beach. Quiet location but only a short walk to restaurants, Belmont Park, etc. Owner and property manager were fantastic! We will be back!

"Perfect location"

by Sue H.

04/06/2021

The Dollhouse was perfect. Located close enough to the Belmont area if you want to be busy and far enough away for peace and quite. I felt safe walking at anytime in this area. The beds are comfortable and I love the sheets on the beds!

"Perfect space for a great beach vacation!"

by Verified Traveler

03/27/2021

We have stayed in the large half of the house at Kennebeck for years and this was our first experience with The Dollhouse. It was perfect for my wife, me, and our two teenagers. Super convenient location. Comfortable beds. Made use of the kitchen for a seafood boil. Took advantage of the beach toys in the garage. And the second parking space was great since skew had family stop by to visit while we were there. Can’t say enough about how easy and relaxing this trip was for our family. Will be back for sure.

"Perfect getaway!"

by Tracy L.

01/07/2021

I can't say enough good about the Dollhouse! Once we had our groceries, we didn't need to drive anywhere again. We were just looking to get away and relax for a few days and this was perfect. The oceanfront beach is just a few steps away, and the bayside isn't much further. There are beach chairs, boogie boards and coolers in the garage. If you are looking for things to do, Seaworld is very close, and the San Diego Zoo, Birch Aquarium, the USS Midway, the Maritime Museum and the Gaslamp Quarter are within a 20-30 minute drive. The kitchen had everything we needed for cooking meals (although we much preferred to grab a bite at the eateries a few blocks away - again, walking distance). Our 13-year-old boy loved the loft. The neighbors were nice. Just a great place. We'll be back in the future!

"Lovely spot!"

by Laura R.

12/07/2020

My partner and I had a wonderful stay at the Dollhouse. It was exactly as pictured, and just a stone's throw from the beach. It was a perfect spot to work for the week while enjoying some beach time. It was very clean, organized, and we loved all of the beach supplies so we didn't have to bring our own. The extra parking spot was a godsend because our car definitely would not have fit in the garage. We would definitely recommend it!

"Wonderful place!"

by Chris J.

12/03/2020

My wife and I loved the week we spent in the Dollhouse. The location is wonderful and less than a block from the beach. We plan to be back and will try to stay there if it’s available. Very easy instructions, parking and access

by Chante N.

10/15/2020

We had a great experience staying in the dollhouse! It was very clean and well organized. Directions were clear, and everything was labeled on how to use, so no guesswork! We were very comfortable, had everything we could possibly need, and our 10-year-old absolutely loved the secret room above the kitchen! It was also surprisingly quiet for being that close to the boardwalk and Belmont Park. Loved it, and hope to return soon!

"Optimal location, excellent hosts."

by Mark A.

10/11/2020

Our family of loved the Dollhouse. Location was perfect for us, far enough from Belmont to avoid the large crowd, but not so far North where the PB local crowds and long term rentals start. Unit is small but perfect for family of 5 with kids ranging in age from 7 (loved the loft) 12 and 15 yr kids in the 2nd room and wife and I in master. Has all the conveniences that mattered to us like a garage, washer/dryer, private entrances, a 2nd parking spot if needed (came in handy when a notary needed to stop by for us to sign home refi docs after a lender mistake at home 3 days earlier - we live in AZ!!) and enough beach toys, chairs and umbrellas in great working order I might add for everyone - rare for each a rental these days. Beds are comfortable, towels plush, supplies like soap/paper towels/TP are all quality as well - no cheap stuff. Love it. Best of all, only about 70 steps to the sand. Thanks for a great experience during a pandemic when everyone is looking for an escape and a little normalcy.

"Great getaway!"

Our stay was perfect! Great location, steps from the beach, all the amenities needed! Can't wait to go back!

"Awesome Location and Amenities"

by Cathleen M.

08/13/2020

Great location, with biking, boating, beaching and everything Mission Beach, Pacific Beach and Mission Bay has to offer just steps outside the door. Cute and private courtyard with outdoor grill was nice. Garage and beach parking spot really made it convenient. We enjoyed ourselves so much that on the last of our 7 days we added one more day and are already planning to come back next year!

"Great stay!"

01/17/2020

We enjoyed our time in Mission Beach. The house was a clean and comfortable place to stay. Our host was very thoughtful and responsive. And we loved the proximity of the house to the beach!

"Fantastic vacation"

by Andrew W.

10/24/2019

We were very impressed with the "Dollhouse" - the quick access to the beach, the ease of parking and the cleanliness of the place were all as advertised. We didn't park in the garage, but chose the outside parking spot. Both were easy to get into. Everything was very convenient. The kids liked taking turns sleeping in the loft, and the other beds were comfortable as well. The recommendations Nancy gave for restaurants/things to do was also super helpful. Even when there was one issue (the guests in the big house making excessive noise) one text to the property manager and the issue was handled. We loved our trip to Mission Beach!

"Perfect location, great accomodations"

by Paula D.

09/13/2019

We had a fabulous stay at the Dollhouse. The location was steps away from the beach and the added loft allowed us to spread out a bit for extra space. We loved the location in that it’s only a short drive to most of the city’s attractions we visited. Overall it was a perfect getaway and would highly recommend it to others.

"Amazing"

by Vicki S.

We had a great stay at the Dollhouse! Room for our family of five, with everything you could need provided. Be at the beach in seconds. Shopping and food within walking distance and centrally located for driving to other touristy locations. We had a great stay!!

"Home away from home♡"

by Jessica M.

05/18/2019

Staying in this very cute and comfortable home was exceedingly joyful, it took our vacation from 0 to 100! Would recommend the Dollhouse to any of my friends and family if they're looking to stay in the Mission Bay area. After A-day of kayaking, being at the zoo calmer or just chilling at the beach going back to the Dollhouse was like going home. Extra stars for the Dollhouse☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆

"Great stay!"

by Alisha H.

05/03/2019

The beach is so close and breathtaking. My kids loved the loft in the kitchen. Was a cute and comfortable house , we felt like it was a real home away from home. The owners were magnificent and extremely accommodating

"Overall great option for Mission Beach trip"

by Todd K.

05/02/2019

Pros: STEPS from the beach. Pleasant walk to cafes/restaurants. Short drive to more options if you wanted. You have all of your essentials: beach toys, beach chairs, washer/dryer with soap provided, two rooms and bathroom that are functional, full kitchen and full size fridge, parking. The place was clean and tidy. As someone who flew in a rented a car and bikes the two parking spots are an AWESOME benefit. We stored our bikes/expensive stroller in the garage for easy access and prevention of theft (apparently strollers and bike trailers are a favorites to be stolen). Our car was still just steps from the house and off the street too which is super helpful with a little kid. Cons: We had a toddler who was just tall enough to open the exterior door which led to sort of steep stairs. The screen door had a hook you could latch to provide a barrier they can't reach but as a parent you are forever worrying you forgot to latch the screen door and your little one may go tumbling down the stairs. Also after a long day in the sun you will get tired of hauling toddlers up and down the stairs, but small price to pay. In the end, still would say good for toddlers because you are rarely at the unit anyway.

"Just what we needed"

by Hillary H.

04/07/2019

This place is not brand sparkly new nor does it have have high end furnishings so if that’s what you are looking for look elsewhere. However, this place has comfortable beds, a perfect location, is clean, affordable and has just enough space for our family of four. We didn’t spend a lot of time in the Unit we more just used it as our home base to sleep. We made breakfast one day and it had all we needed to do so. The owner is very responsive and wonderful to work with. Would we stay here again absolutely!!

"What a wonderful experience!"

by Kathy I.

04/07/2019

This is our fifth year going to San Diego for spring break and our first renting the Dollhouse. What a great place! For a family of three, there was plenty of room (my son loved the loft) and as the ad mentioned, fully stocked with everything you would need. Just bring your clothes and some groceries! Nancy and her team are amazing! If you have a question about anything, the response time is immediate, friendly and professional. Within walking distance to Belmont, restaurants and shops. The beach is just steps from the front door, but never busy or crowded. We hope to stay there again next year!

"Great place for a family of four!!!"

by Joshua C.

03/23/2019

The Dollhouse was prefect for a family of four. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils, dishes, and appliances. They even had a great selection of beach items, from toys for all ages and plenty of beach chairs for the adults. My family had a wonderful time and highly recommend it!

"Great place for families!"

by Darren T.

03/19/2019

Cute little place walking distance to the beach, store, restaurants and Belmont Park. Perfect place to relax and unwind in Mission Beach!

"Cute, private and efficient space"

by Heidi M.

Really enjoyed my stay at the Dollhouse. The space had personality and I quickly found it to be a cozy home. It was very close to the beach without the beach walkers looking in. Walking distance to many restaurants, bars and activities. Owner was very nice and easy to work with. Rented for a month and had family visit off and on. They all found it comfortable and nice. I usually don't rent the same place twice but this is an exception because I enjoyed it that much.

We enjoyed our trip to the Dollhouse! It is tiny, but great for my family of 4. Nancy provided an informative welcome package detailing directions to the house, favorite restaurants, etc. Mission Beach is very convenient to areas of San Diego, the airport, La Jolla.

Cute little house. Perfect for us and our 2 teens. 1 block from the beach. We walked it every other day. Lots of little shops nearby. Grocery store 1 mile away. Kitchen well equipped with everything we needed for cooking as we made a lot of meals at the house. Property manager was immediately responsive and got the minor issue resolved. It’s a very quiet area but very close to the local attractions. Would definitely stay here again.

The name Dollhouse threw me off...this is not really a small place. It sleeps 5 and we fought for the loft....which we called the crow’s nest. It had everything you would ever need in a rental. It has the cutest nautical sheets and a fully stocked and thought out kitchen. The refrigerator made ice! The bedroom closet opens into the kitchen pantry so this is a circular floor plan. We had family stop by with dessert and a look see and we entertained 9 adults, 1 child and 2 babies comfortably in our living room. Now, this property has 2 parking places which is primo at Mission Beach. We are booking again real soon!

My family was visiting me from Chicago (I live here in Mission Beach, San Diego) and I wanted a vacation rental that would be exceptional. The Dollhouse is exactly that! The place is spotless, you literally can’t beat the location, 2 parking spots... unheard of in Mission beach! Walk to the beach in seconds, quiet, plenty of space, plenty of beach chairs, boogie boards etc... My Dad and sister were blown away! What a GEM! Look no further, this is your vacation rental, take it from a local... this place rocks!

from $200 / night
