“A House With Almost a View”
Reviewed 16 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016
people found this review helpful

We had our belated family Christmas the first week of January at The Big Kahuna. We had a great time, even though we lived through the La Nina water dump. The house, while having a few little quirks, is a great place for an extended family like ours. There were eleven of us, ranging in age from two to sixteen in the kid range, their parents in the late thirties range, and the old folks at 65. We survived well, thank you.
There are lots of stairs, but that is a good thing. Bathrooms on all three floors make this a good family property. The finishes are showing some age, but so are the renters.Each floor has a deck, so there is outside space that can be used when politics becomes the topic. The kitchen is a bit tight, but more than adequate. More supplies would be helpful. We started with few glasses, but received a bunch after requesting them. Stuff like that.
The furniture has seen better days, but it is in a beach rental so the use and abuse has to be horrific.
This property is just about 150 feet off the beach and you don't have to cross Mission Blvd. to get there, so that is a plus.There are two garages, sort of. Small cars are the key. The washer and dryer helps immensely.
Again, this is a good property with the potential to be a great one. We've rented on Mission Beach before and this is a superior site to the last one we visited, which was about the same distance from the beach. Further north, this one is more central to the shops and restaurants and not close to a public park which swells the number of cars, etc.
If you can handle mix and match coffee cups, a dining table for four in a house for twelve, a shower just off the shower/tub combo, then you'd like this place. My adult kids loved it, had a great time and would go back again. My wife would like to have a dust pan to go with the broom, but that is a minor detail, I hope.
Mission Beach is quirky. Might as well stay at a quirky, but cool house.
