“Amazing Location! 15 Minutes From All Major Attractions”
Reviewed 29 January 2018 for a stay in January 2018

I can’t say enough about the location of this rental. First off it is about 60 steps from Mission Bay. Secondly the Pacific Ocean is literally across the street. You can see surfers from the balcony. We did beach walks every day.

The house is also only 10 minutes from the airport, 15 minutes from the USS Midway, 15 minutes from Balboa Park and the San Diego Zoo, and about 7 minutes from Sea World. The longest drive we had was to Lego Land in Carlsbad which took maybe 40 minutes.

The other great thing about the location is how safe you felt. Not once did we feel unsafe walking at night or in the early morning. Plus you have a great taco place, La Playa, a 5 minute walk away. We ate there twice and it was amazing. There are coffee places either way down the street.

We rented a van for the week and it fit fine in the garage. There were 5 of us, 4 adults and a 5 year old, and there was plenty of room. The rental is showing its age a bit. That is the only reason I gave it a 4 star rating. The oven display doesn’t work, the water dispenser in the fridge doesn’t work, the dishwasher is pretty beat up and the paint could be touched up. There also aren’t a lot of plates and bowls so we found ourselves doing dishes nightly. Traffic noise was a bit of an issue at night for the second floor bedroom but the top floor was fine. In realty these are just little things and wouldn’t hesitate staying there again.

For grocery stores there is Ralph’s about a 10 minute walk North. There is also a Trader Joe’s (a small one) and a Von’s about a 10 minute drive away. I highly suggest Von’s.

Overall it is the location that sells the place.

“Great house for large family in perfect location”
Reviewed 1 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We stayed here for 4 nights. We stayed with our family (4 yo & 7 yo) plus my parents. There was plenty of space for the 6 of us & the kitchen was nice and large. We made us of this & the bbq outside. The bathrrooms are all good size too.
The house was very clean & we found everything in working order.
Having the bikes available was great for my husband & myself who love cycling & checking out the surrounding areas. There paths around the bay/ocean are never ending!
The beach is just across the street & the bay is a few doors down. There were plenty of equipment to use at the beach (we didn't find until 2nd day - it was down the side of the house).
You do need to like stairs staying in this house - we were using the room on the 3rd floor, so we found ourselves going up and down the stairs quite a bit. The view from the 3rd floor balcony is worth it - lovely having a drink out there seeing both the ocean and the bay!

“Brand New - Great Location - Super Clean”

I've rented many different houses along Mission Beach/Bay and this home is located in the perfect location. It is easy walking distance to my favorite places in MB (Rubicon Deli and Mission Cafe) and PB (The Baked Bear) and literally a few steps from the beach and the bay. Also worth noting that it is right where the crosswalk is for Tower 21 on the beach side so you literally just walk across the street, no need to jaywalk :)

The house felt very new, everything was clean, the bedrooms felt bigger than normal beach house bedrooms. The garage was big enough to fit two medium sized SUVs (although a little tight), but not impossible. The house included four bikes with locks which worked perfectly.

Nicole and the folks at Pacific Sands were great. Overall one of our best rental experiences I've had. Would definitely rent again.

“A Great House in a beautiful Location”
Reviewed 17 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We stayed at the house for 8 nights whilst visiting San Diego from England. We had a great time the house had everything we needed and was in a perfect spot. Was lovely and quiet depsite being only a stones throw away from the lively beach area. (minute walk away) the house is closer the bay side of the Mission Bay area and we would sit out early morning and early evening watching life go by, with bikers and joggers using the beautiful pathways along the bay all very friendly. Only comment i would make if having young children is that the childrens bedroom is located on the ground floor with adults sleeping on higher levels, although there is a twin pullout available in the master bedroom which we used instead. The bikes provided were used and were great to have available, there were plently beach toys and activity items available for the children, and we were very comfortable throughout our stay, wouldn't hesitate to stay here again!!
