The Zanzibar Jewel provided great lodging for our party of four adults and one teen. The inside is as pictured, tastefully casual with a fully stocked kitchen (cooking & eating utensils, dinnerware, cookware etc.). The deck accommodates up to four people but is best for two since a bistro style table & two chairs are provided. We enjoyed grilling on the gas grill, also located on the deck. We had brought our own beach chairs but the Roth's had beach chairs and an umbrella in the garage for guest use. The washer/dryer was much appreciated & there were plentiful linens. The condo also came with a couple of beach bikes and misc beach toys. The garage held our Toyota 4Runner no problem but a larger vehicle such as a Toyota Tundra would be tricky (or impossible). It should be noted that you have to climb approx. 10 steps to get to the entrance (condo is located on top of the garage). The only issue we has was that we never could get the bedroom's second TV to work. We called Mission Rentals & they tried to help us troubleshoot but when that didn't work, we didn't pursue it further. We were so busy having fun that it didn't seem important enough. I'm sure Mission Rentals would have continued to give great personal attention (which we did get). The location is "to die for" with the beach a few steps away. It was so enjoyable being able to step outside & be on the beach within a minute. It made for frequent walks on the beach. We had such a great time that we all want to return again, and again...
Response from the owner Kathy, Thanks for taking the time to write your great review! Jim and I are so glad that you had such a good time at "The Jewel"! As far as the small TV in the bedroom, we switched from Time Warner to AT & T at the beginning of the year. Our guest prior never used the small TV. We have discovered that AT & T never connected that TV to the cable. It is now resolved. We apologize for any inconvenience it may have caused. We look forward to seeing you soon! Jim and Debbie
“A Piece of Heaven on Earth”
We stayed here on our honeymoon, and we loved it so much that we had to go back for our one year anniversary! There is something about this place that is really special...the mix of down-to-earth homey-ness and views of gradeur...it's the perfect vacation spot. The location is close to many shops and restaurants on Mission Boulevard, there's a parking garage (which, if you live in this area, makes all the difference!), and there's plenty of sitting/sleeping space for a larger party. The view of the ocean is incredible, and falling asleep to the sound of the waves is so soothing. I hope to return here again someday.
“The Hidden Jewel was perfect!”
Me and a few friends stayed at "The Hidden Jewel" in San Diego. It was perfect. Brendan made the transaction go seamless. The house had all of the beach toys(surf boards, boogie boards, chairs, umbrellas, frisbees, football, volleyball, squash, bocce, etc...) that anyone could want while staying 15 feet from the ocean. The kitchen is fully stocked and the gas grill outside was a treat to use. It is in a great location being on the border of Mission and Pacific Beaches. Use the Ralphs Reward Card that they have on the key ring. On one occasion we bought steaks and one was a beautiful, well-marbled, Usda choice NY strip that went to $8.50 from $18! We made it a point to back at the apartment at sundown so we could watch the sunset each night at the dinner table on the patio. Highly recommended!
We loved being able to run out to the beach quickly and easily. The air and water were chilly, so we didn't spend very long at the beach, but our son really wanted to spend a little time there every day. San Diego is a fabulous place to visit. There is so much to do and Mission Beach is convenient to most attractions. I highly recommend the Hidden Jewel.
I had my second annual visit to this wonderful spot, and I can't say enough good things about it. Convenient, well appointed, beautiful views, etc. The weather in april-August is fantastic, with beautifully long days and you will love the way this property is set slightly back from all the beach noise!
“We don't want to leave!”
This is our last day in this hidden gem in mission beach. If you are looking around stop here! I can't say enough about the accomodation and the location. Every morning someone in my family has gone for a run on the path by the beach. Awesome to people watch from our living room. We had 2 kids and 2 adults and it was absolutely perfect. Ralph's and CVS and restaurants are within walking distance. The neighbours are so friendly. Jim was very welcoming when we arrived and having a parking spot was a bonus. Brendan Heath handled our reservation and was quick to respond and answer any questions that we had. Honestly, I can say that this is a rental that we will definitely return to. The kids are so sad to be leaving this home and my husband asked if we could stay here forever. We will miss the beach, location and the people. Rent here. You will not be disappointed.
“The Hidden Jewel feels like our own family's personal vacation h”
The Hidden Jewel is Mission Beach's best kept secret. It may be small in square footage, but it has everything you need to have a wonderful vacation. It is very well apportioned and perfectly stocked with all the essentials you need to "live" in a home. It is decorated beautifully and when we stay there, it feels like our family's personal vacation home. It is centrally located in Mission. The garage is large and can fit a large SUV and as many bikes/boogie boards/chairs/umbrellas/etc. that you bring along. If you don't have space to pack such items, The Roths provide everything you need to hit either the beach or the boardwalk on wheels. The Roths are a lovely couple who are devoted to making your stay comfortable and enjoyable. They live in the front house and are almost always available if you have any issues/questions/concerns about the condo. I cannot say enough positives about this unit. I recommend it to all of my friends, because it really is Mission Beach's best kept secret.
My family and I had a wonderful stay at the Zanzibar Condo. The view was just amazingly beautiful,and the condo was super clean, modern and equipped with everything you could possible need. The owners were terrific, they were very helpful with anything we needed. We definitly enjoyed our stay and look forward to many returns.
“What a location!”
We had a wonderful week here. The view was incredible and steps from the sand. Shopping was very convenient and we had no problems at all. The weather in august was perfection. Dolphins seen almost daily! Sunsets were epic! The owners are really very nice people and always available! Thanks!
“A review I've been meaning to write since our return -- loved t”
We have nothing but wonderful things to say about this little internet find. Our family of 5 (Mom/Dad, 3 boys 18,12 and 9) throughly enjoyed our stay with Jim and Debra. The apartment/condo is literally steps to the beach. Shopping is close, fun restuarants are close. Mission Bay, walk to it.. purchased in advance a couple Groupon/Livingsocial deals; paddleboard rentals and a jetski rental, took a mid-week road trip to Disney, went to Coronado, went to downtown SD visited the USS Midway. The apartment/condo while small is just fine for a vacation. Clean, well appointed, comfortable, handled the everydayness that comes with 3 boys (i.e. sand, wet feet, wet swimsuits, frisbees, beach toys, multiple loads of laundry, lots and lots of collected shells). Everything you might need to cook with is there. Jim and Debbie have thought of all your needs in regards to a lovely beach stay. We will definitely stay again with or without the kids. Thank you again for the lovely memories! Heather and Kyle
