This home is absolutely beautiful. The porch and ocean views are wonderful. The home is classy, updated, clean, well kept and well equipped. The master bedroom has a gorgeous ocean front view. There is a wonderful wrap aroun porch that opens to all the bedrooms. Bluewater Vacation Homes is an outstanding management company. The customer service is top notch. The group at Bluewater even called us the morning after check in to make sure everything was up to their standards. When there was something small that needed fixing, they came the same day.

We are a group of 7 older folks. Booked online, Kendra K was prompt, courteous and very helpful in her replies. Views are stunning, furnishings topnotch and location is good. Lots of great restaurants withing walking distance as well as a gourmet kitchen. We were lucky enough to get the master bdrm., wonderful to fall asleep listening to the waves crash and see the moon on the water. A little pricey for a couple but great for a group.
Only downside was garbage and recycling, both cans missing in action, so had to use the neighbors after dark.
All and all, if that's all there is to complain about, it was a great holiday.

I have stayed in many places in San Diego and this home was by far the best. Spacious, super clean and comfortable. Loved the balcony and the amazing views. The location is great as it is right in between Crystal Pier and Belmont Park. We walked or rode bikes everywhere. The staff at Bluewater was very helpful, responsive and available for any questions. Would definitely stay here on all our future visits!!!

We had a wonderful stay at Rockaway! We were a mixed group with 5 adults and 3 young children, and the house was great for everyone. The staff at Bluewater was very courteous and accommodating before, during, and after our stay. The house was beautifully decorated and well maintained, and the views and sounds of the ocean were amazing. We spent a lot of time on the beach just steps away, and we appreciated all the beach chairs, mats, and toys available in the garage. We all agreed that we would certainly return to the Rockaway next time we are in San Diego!

The condo was so much fun and in an excellent location to everything! It was spacious, modern, and the view was excellent. Kendra was very helpful and informative. We would definitely vacation here again and have already recommended Rockaway to our friends.

We all loved this place, location was perfect and the sunsets were wonderful. Hope we can return again someday soon! The 2-car garage was great since parking can be a problem. Beach just out the front door and lots of good restuarants nearby!

A group of us came out to celebrate our 11th anniversary on 11/11/11 and this place worked out perfectly. At first, we were a little worried the size would not accommodate us, but Kendra was very comforting and reassured us that we would all be very pleased. We could not be more pleased. All of our guests were beyond impressed. The location was perfect, the view was perfect, and we were all very comfortable. We used the pit so much that we ran out of propane, but that was only because we put it to good use. This event was very memorable for us. We would definitely rent this place again. We liked being on the second floor because it kept us above eye ground to see everything. We visited a couple of restaurants, we walked the beach, ran surfed, you name it, it was available. Liquor store a block away, grocery store...blocks away. We could not have asked for a better place for our special event. Thanks! Read more
It was wonderful to hear that your stay was perfect. That is really what we all strive for in regards to our guests' satisfaction. Actually, if you would have let me know that the propane was out, I would have quickly replaced it for you all. Just a note for your next stay with us! ;)
It was absolutely our pleasure to serve you, and I do hope to hear from you in the future for your next vacation out at the Rockaway home or one of our many other properties.

I would like to send many thanks to the Blue Water Vacation Homes team.
We had travelled from Toronto Canada, and had no idea what it would be like on the west coast. Kendra at Blue Water Vacation Homes reassured me I would not be let down.
Our place was very clean and very welcoming, just like the staff.
Located right on the beach at Mission Beach, the sights and sounds made our trip much more of an experience than a vacation.
Once again I cannot express how pleased I was, let alone my guests were during our stay with Blue Water Vacation Homes!!
A definitely a return guest!!
Thank-you Kendra for everything, you made it all come true!!
It was an absolute pleasure having you as our guest and I certainly hope to serve you again for your next vacation. I am so happy that we could satisfy your trip to the US along Mission Beach at the beautiful Rockaway Ocean Front Home. Please stay in touch and I look forward to hearing from you again!

A Piece of Paradise !

Thank you for an incrdedible vacation ! The Rockaway Retreat was a great choice, thank you ! We celebrated my mother-in-laws' 70th Birthday ! We put her up in the ocean front master suite where she enjoyed waking up to the waves crashing right in front of her each morning. She said she had fun sipping her morning coffee in bed while watching the dolphins swimming in the ocean waves ! The condo was very spacious and each of us had our private space which made it very, very comfortable for all. My wife and I slept in the back two bedrooms along with our two daughters. The Jack and Jill Bathroom was perfect for us and even being in the back bedrooms, we could open our windows and clearly hear the waves crashing as we went to sleep ! My wifes aunt slept in the 4th bedroom and enjoyed having the comfort of her own bathroom. The kitchen, livingroom, and ocean front balcony areas were fantastic! We enjoyed grilling up some fresh fish on the bbq for dinner while watchng the world series baseball games on the surround sound tv theatre systym ! I think we would all agree that our favorite part was sitting around the fire pit on the ocean front balcony each evening listening to the waves with a bowl of ice cream and sharing stories with each other about our day and our lives. The Rockaway Retreat truly offered us a piece of paradise and we created life long memories during our stay there. Thank you so much !

I organized a trip for my husband's 40th birthday--there were 3 couples and we chose this house based on location, amenities, and the pictures on the bluewater website.
The house is amazing--3 bedrooms with Queen beds (great for couples!) and a forth room with a futon, upscale appliances, bath fixtures, tile, etc. And being oceanfront to see the amazing sunsets off the balcony was truly an experience. There was also a secondary balcony off the two bedrooms in the back of the house which was an unexpected bonus. Another great thing was the 2 car garage--never having to worry about finding a spot or gettng towed. Location was fabulous--we walked to all the bars in PB and MB.
The team at Bluewater was really on the game and helped make this a great trip for us. They were always friendly, and always available to answer our questions (like when we couldn't figure out how to work the Tv---it was user error but they were so patient with us!) All the bathrooms had upscale bath products including lotion, which was a nice touch from Bluewater. Also, very nice that the door had a electronic combo-style lock so we didn't have to worry about picking up keys, etc. It's these little things that make a difference and Bluewater really is top notch here.
