San Diego Vacation Rental through VRBO

Anyone rent from Mike W and stayed at Graces Beach House on Mission Beach? It's our first VRBO for a family vacation. Reviews looked good.

If the reviews look good, you're probably OK. Call the owner and talk to him personally; ask direct questions about whether the pictures on the site are current and are actually taken from/or in the unit, ask about deposits, payment methods and cancellation policies, and what kind of a written contract he will issue. If you can't reach him by phone, ask the same questions via email. If you're not comfortable with the responses, look elsewhere. We've had a unit listed on VRBO for many years (not in San Diego) and have learned that many of our guests are most comfortable with direct contact.

I don't know that particular rental but please make sure there is parking included as that gets difficult if you are here in summer!!

I just looked at the listing and I was impressed with how much personal detail and even the exact address that was included!

I have friends that live 1 block away on San Luis Rey .

good location. the south end of mission beach is a little quieter then around belmont park or pacific beach. make sure a parking spot is included. also, ask them for references from past renters.

One spot for parking and more parking one block away. We'll have 2 cars. I talked with the owner.

How about surf fishing...for fun? My husband would get up early and try.
