“Great place to stay!”
We had 8 adults and two toddlers as we gathered for a family reunion coming from various parts of the US. Being a few steps off the beach was ideal--it allowed for some privacy as we enjoyed the outdoor patio. Although we rented cars we hardly needed them since restaurants, grocery stores etc were within easy walking distance. We really appreciated the well supplied units. Our toddlers used the pack and plays, strollers and all the toys available including many beach toys. It was an ideal place for a large family gathering. We would highly recommend this property and would stay here again.
“Perfect family vacation!”
This was the perfect vacation home for me and all 16 of my family members! There was so much to do near by such as the beach, Belmont Park, San Diego Zoo and Old San Diego to name a few! The property was filled with all sorts of goodies that made our stay that much enjoyable! The bikes, water boards, wagon, BBQ, board games, beach toys were utilized to the fullest from the youngest member of the family to the oldest! Will definately consider this property again for future San Diego vacations.
“Wonderful Family Vacation”
We rented both levels of this duplex for our 3-generation Family vacation, because we are up to 20 people. Everyone had a great time. It really helped that the house has boogie boards, sand toys, chairs, etc. We all drove here from various states and didn't have room in the cars to bring all that stuff. The location is wonderful, just 1 house back from the beach, so you still see the sand and surf and hear the ocean roar all night. It's also just a block or so from Balboa Park with shops, roller coaster, kiddie rides, etc. Once we managed to get the 2 Suvs, 1 mini van and 1 'regular' car into the garages (a tight fit, but possible) we didn't need to drive anywhere for our 5 day stay! We carted a couple of buckets of sand into the patio so the little kids could still make sand pies, etc, even when they weren't down on the beach.
“Fantastic home away from Home”
Our family of 4 had a fantastic stay here. We stayed in the lower level townhouse, while our friends with their kids stayed upstairs. It was convenient to have them in the same building - we were able to share dinners nightly and enjoy the patio dinners (while watching sunset) with our families all together. It really felt like home. It had all the necessities that you can imagine. The owners must have thought this out thoroughly or knew exactly what is needed. The place was so well laid out, items were easy to find (including batteries for the smoke detector, which we had to change. There was even a labeled container for old dead batteries for proper discarding!!), all the cupboards and closets were labeled. How great is it to have a dishwasher and laundry machine onsite with detergent available! There were lots of toys for the kids (bonus - you don't have to waste room in your suitcase nor have to go searching for that shovel and bucket so your kids can play in the sand), There were also bikes, a stroller, beach chairs and a wagon to pull all the stuff down to the beach with available. The location was fantastic - it was a stone throw away from the beach. Each night we went to bed listening to the rolling waves. It was also a good base as it was very close to get to any of the attractions and easy to get to the I-5. Apart from the great stay and we really felt like it was a home away from home, the management agent of this property (Nicole) was great. She was very accommodating and quick to respond. All of my inquiries were answered promptly from the start of our vacation planning. During our stay she was available to answer any questions as well. Apart from that, there was a booklet in the townhouse that explained everything in great detail, including where to find a pharmacy or grocery store, suggested places for good mexican food, etc. We would definitely come back to stay here again, or at least stick to an accommodation provided by the same management group.
“Tremendous place right on the beach”
Stayed the weekend for an 18-person family reunion, and couldn't have been more pleased. Well maintained house with tons of beach paraphernalia (surf and boogie boards, chairs, blankets, sports equipment, bicycles, etc.) that kept the kids occupied for hours. We're considering making it an annual event at this location.
“Great family reunion accommodations, beautiful views!”
Everything was better than we hoped...walk to the beach and other activities, bike to Pacific Beach. The two units were extremely well stocked to keep all ages in our family entertained. The toys, Dvds, books, stroller, wagon, bicycles, etc. were very helpful. We had 10 adults and 4 kids (ages 3-12) and cooked and served our Thanksgiving dinner there (we were able to get specifics about kitchen inventory ahead of time). Everything was very tastefully decorated and comfortable. Beautiful ocean views and balconies, patio with gas grill. Easy drive to Zoo, Sea World, even LegoLand. We had a great time!
“Fantastic family vacation”
My family and I stayed at this fantastic place for a family wedding. There was 11 of us that stayed and the accommodations were perfect. Plenty of room. We were able to cook all of our meals unless we felt like riding the beach cruisers to a restaurant. We spent a lot of time on the upper deck enjoying our evenings. It was conveniently located to everything in Mission Beach area...we were even able to walk to the Bahia for the wedding. If you are looking for a great place to stay in Mission Beach this is it!
“Fun in Mission Beach!”
We had a wonderful time in this rental. There was plenty of room for multiple families--we easily fit 18+ people. The units were very clean and had great furniture. One of the best perks were all the beach toys, bikes, surfboards, boogie boards, beach chairs...tons of extra stuff. No need to pack your own. With the close location to the beach(80ft) the younger kids could go back and forth--bathrooms and food. You family will be sure to have a great time.
“714/716 Isthmus review”
We rented both units in late June 2012. The units were clean and maintained very well. I have never been to a vacation rental with more amenities. Bikes, beach chairs, bogey boards, small beach coolers, etc. were all available. We also did most of the cooking to save a little money and each kitchen was fully stocked and met all of our cooking needs. The units are less than 2 blocks from Belmont Park and a few blocks from the bay, not to mention 50 feet from the beach!!! A couple of places we did eat out and would recommend are: The Mission - best breakfast around and very reasonable (on MissionBl several blocks north of Isthmus), Filippi's - pizza place with great food and service (on Garnet a couple of blocks from the beach). Overall the rental process was very professional and the pictures of the rentals were accurate. Although we did not visit, the units are less than a mile to Sea World, sportfishing and bay cruise facitilies.
We had a wonderful experience in this beach house. The location was perfect! Literally, steps from the beach. From the beginning, the garages were very spacious. We have rented in mission beach before, and other places have tiny garages. The extras in each garage, such as stroller, bikes, sand toys, biggie boards, really made the trip. We flew in and didn't rent a car, and we really didn't need one. We rode the beach cruisers to get groceries and to dinner. The location was walking distance to many eateries, as well. The house was clean, as were the bathrooms. Almost every room had a ceiling fan and the tv and satellite in the living room entertained the kids well, as did the many kid toys. The kitchen had all the tools for the job and the bbqs were nicer than the ones I have at home. All in all, the best house that we have rented in mission beach for its price. Highly recommend for families, especially those that are going to vacation with another family or group. The separate houses allows everyone to have their space but remain close.
