Those lucky enough to stay here will have front row seating for the amazing views of the sun dipping into the Pacific Ocean. And if you're lucky, you might even get a glimpse of the elusive Green Flash (if you don't know what the Green Flash is, ask a local!)
Mission Beach Sunset is located right on the Mission Beach Boardwalk overlooking the beach and Pacific Ocean. This home is perfect for a romantic getaway or a great family vacation.
Step inside and you'll find the home is furnished with island-style Tommy Bahama decor, which makes you feel like you're on a beach vacation from the moment you enter. A...nd what an entrance, as you walk in the door and are drawn straight out the oversize windows to the beach and the waves. What a wonderful setting; miles and miles of sandy beaches and blue water in either direction. Grab a boogie board, and some sand toys and hit the beach. It's your back yard!
(One week minimums summer, and major holidays, surcharges may apply)
Once you're done with your fun in the sun, you'll find all of the amenities and comforts of home. Surf the web on the free unlimited wireless network, catch a dvd on the flat screen HDTV, or just relax with a glass of wine on your private view deck
This San Diego vacation rental is located right in the heart of north Mission Beach, with plenty of shops, restaurants and stores just a block away, and it's less than 200 yards to the tranquil waters and recreation of Mission Bay.

I visited from England over the Christmas period, and splent alot of time on Google looking at all the Mission Beach / Mission Bay accomodation I could find. I came across the accomodation on the Bluewater Vacation Homes website, and it really caught my eye. There's always the worry with the Internet that a) the website may not have the service to back it up, and b) the description and pictures may be too good to be true. In this case I have to say I was delighted on both counts. The booking was a breeze, with additional assistance and offers around local attractions, and the place was just right for us (family of 4).
The accomodation itself is a good size, well equipped and very comfortably furnished. The location is absolutley brilliant, right on the boardwalk looking out over the Pacific. I had wondered about Mission Beach vs Mission Bay, and I am so glad we went for the beach side. It was great to watch the waves rolling in, and nearly every day we saw a school (?) of dolphins swimming by, sometimes jumping around and surfing in the waves. Amazing.
The property is also in a great location for getting to attractinos, stores, restaurants etc. Being roughly half-way between Belmont park and the Pier, it's not as busy as it would be closer to either of them, but both are easily walkable. It's also near The Mission cafe that does a great breakfast.
I can't honestly say there was anything I didn't like. If I was going to picky, the bathroom could be bigger and there could be a drying rack for towels after we'd all showered, but really that's not what I go on holiday for.
Just a great place

We had a great time on Mission Beach and in San Diego. It was a great place to bring our teenaged boys. The was always action on the boardwalk which we could observe from our balcony. The were also some wonderful sunsets. It was a comfortable, laid back, area with lots of restaurants nearby. The rental was comfortable and noise did not bother us. The Bluewater office was responsive and helped us through the internet log in when we needed it.
