What a great stay.Syoer close to everything, right on the beach. Enough room for 6 comfortably, had everything one would need. Clean, cozy and would definitely come back!!!
Location is amazing, we had everything we needed, there were extra blankets on hand, and it was clean upon arrival.
Great location, clean lots of room we would rent again.
It was great for everyone, kids, parents and grandma, there was maybe one small problem... the smaller of the two beds in second room was VERY noisey and woke us up in the morning with my sons every move.
This apartment Could be great - it has beautiful slanted wood beamed ceilings and vintage cabinetry. The internet, heat and plumbing work, the enclosed porch/terrace is adorable and the couch as well as the king bed are comfy (not easy on the eyes). I could see the sunset from the shared porch and they offered an enclosed garage spot. You are 100 yards from the beach. It was clean.
The things that bothered me (but may be wonderful for others) was the lack of personal touches - I get it though, strange peeps are coming through. It is bare bones decor, cold floors and not even a little welcome basket (tea, coffee or anything is always appreciated). This is only one of two homes that did not included coffee. I am 5”11 and had to crouch to wash my hair under the low shower head and the hot water turned warm after 10 minutes (meaning my shower started getting cool). Might want to wipe down the front door as there were brown splatters of something?
The bathroom light was out, the second bedroom offered a dresser with a broken knob (easy fixes). Oddly there was no welcome book with recommendations or house rules, what they wanted me to clean up for check out….. a couple benches for suitcases would also be appreciated as well as extra blankets - it was cold at night. (I am from WI so I am used to low temps).
Next trip I will book a different VRBO as the price was high for the amenities. I think a family with kids would appreciate the location and low maintenance aspect!
Overall a nice place to stay. So close to the beach!! It definitely is the bare minimum of supplies in the house so don’t plan on cooking a lot of your own meals unless it doesn’t require much. Place was clean. We did have issues with the power in the house multiple times and had to reset the breaker in the garage.
I loved the balcony room. The house had everything we needed. The place was clean and quiet. An amazing location. I will be back.
Location was great. House needs a few things to make more comfortable- better linen, hangers in closet, photos of garage access so it’s easier to locate in the dark, we needed a can opener, the light switches don’t all work, dishes were dirty in the cupboard, and the gate hardware is all rusted through.
Jennifer, thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We are happy you enjoyed the location and layout of this home. We have passed your comments along to our local manager, who will work with the homeowner to make any updates. We hope to host you again!
Loved the location. Just steps away from the beach, local restaurants, and the boardwalk. Bedrooms were comfortable. Kitchen is not fully equipped to cook. Plan on eating out or ordering take out.
I didn't love this place. The only good thing was it was close to the beach. It’s old and everything is dated, even the floors. There was a hole in the bathroom wall and a patch on the wall that needed to be painted. When you arrive and see the outside of the building you know what to expect inside. Everything needs an update. The couch is uncomfortable and the beds creak. The tv has no instructions and you have to manually turn it on even with a remote. There’s a thousand channels with no guide so good luck scrolling through to find what you want. This is a budget place so don’t expect a lot, because you don’t get it.
Hi, Vickie! We're sorry you didn't enjoy your accommodations. We have a day scheduled this month to address your maintenance concerns. Thank you!
This bungalow was so fun being so close to Mission beach. My family loved it and was worth it. Only two frustrations,. We couldn’t get 2 of the 3 TVs connected to cable, and the ice machine on the refrigerator didn’t work. We may come again if we can find out again about those things. 👍
We have sent your feedback to the local staff for further review. We appreciate you letting us know there is room for improvement and will work diligently with the homeowner to make any updates and repairs. We look forward to hosting you for your next vacation!
The condo was perfect for our needs. Steps away from the beach. Morning coffee on the deck watching the waves roll in. The only thing I would add is more fans, It gets warm in the afternoon. But pretty clean and walking distance to restaurants and bars and local amusement park.
Hello, Yvette, we are pleased you enjoyed your stay. Our local staff is available to help you with issues you may have during your stay . We hope to host you again soon.
This was the perfect location for vacation for our family of five. Just steps from the beach. A short walk to great restaurants and Bemont Park where the kids enjoyed the arcade and rides.
Convenient; Close to Belmont park and the beach is close. It was a fun trip! Fit our family of 6 nicely.
We stayed for a week and would have loved to stay longer. There were 6 of us and it was comfortable, although sometimes it's hard having just one bathroom and one parking spot. The location is perfect, and the porches are very useful. There is no futon in the back room as shown in the pictures. They could use some more pots/pans for people who stay a long time. There is a hair dryer and blankets for people sleeping on the couch. Plenty of nice pillows and towels. They provide beach towels and there are some beach chairs/umbrellas/toys in the garage you can use. The laundry in the garage is fine and easy to share with other renters. It is very hard to get into the garage because there is a big hump in the road on one side as you enter. We had a minivan which got in ok but with about 100 tight turns, and a small sedan which bottomed out on the hump but was easier to turn. All in all it was a great place and I would definitely stay there again.
I did not love that you refused my cancelation even though it was a month ahead. The view was nice parking was NOT! I would tell anyone not to rent from you.
Hi, Karen, thank you for taking the time to share your review. We apologize for any unhappiness with our cancelation policy. We do ensure that our cancelation policy is posted and available for guests prior to booking as well as in the confirmation email. We are glad you enjoyed the view and we hope we have another chance to impress you in the future!
The house was in a perfect location and had everything we needed for our stay. It was super close to the beach and also had a garage spot that could fit at least a mid sized SUV which was an awesome perk. Would definitely stay here again!
The Condo is spacious and clean. It is in a great location. It’s close to Belmont Park and easy walking distance to all that Mission beach has to offer.
The house was exactly where we wanted to be on Mission Beach. We enjoyed the quiet location and the quick access to the beach and Belmont Park.
You can’t beat this location! We loved how close it was the the water and restaurants. It had everything we needed.
We did love that it was close to the beach!
The place is run down however & the beds are so hard. My back is killing me now.
Angela, we are glad you enjoyed the location of Mimi's and Nana's Beach House. We attempt to be as transparent with our listings as possible and provide accurate and current photos, amenities lists, and descriptions so guests can make an informed choice about what they are paying for and make the right decision for their needs! We have a variety of homes in differing price points and we truly hope you'll consider us for your next getaway. Beds tend to be a personal preference and we are sorry the beds were not to yours. We look forward to hosting you in the future. Thank you!
Very outdated..beds are horribly uncomfortable
Hi Kimberly, thank you for staying with us! We're so sorry for the disappointing experience during your visit. While we understand that sleeping preferences vary widely, we are sorry to hear that the bed did not provide for a comfortable night of rest. We take guest feedback seriously, and I have forwarded this information to the local staff so they can review and update the home as needed for future guests. We look forward to hosting you again!
We only had a few days to enjoy my daughter spring break with the Covid 19 outbreak ramping up it was a last chance to get out of town and do something as a family. And it's a lovely setting being just north of Belmont Park steps away from the boardwalk in the beach. It's private, second floor of the divided house. Two bedrooms and a sunroom that has a futon so plenty of beds. A full kitchen with gas stove and fridge and dishwasher. And a deck outside the front door with a window to the beach and the sea beyond. It was wonderful. Also includes a garage. And no keys to lose. Everything is opened with keypads. Like that part a lot.
500 feet from boardwalk..great location at reasonable price..little old but quaint and comfortable
This was a great place to stay! Convenient walking location to area restaurants and shops..even for my 77 Year old Dad.. steps away from the boardwalk and a very easy place for Uber pick up and drop off! Very roomy! Large bedrooms! Had some glitches but we're taken care of! Also very sound proof..we had neighbors beside us and we didn't know it... most important they couldn't hear us as my dad played his harmonica every day! I would rent here again.. next time with the hubby!
We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves at the house. Thank you and we would recommend it to others. So amazingly close to the beach and right down the street from Belmont Park was perfect for my kids
Lots of space, really close to beach, parking in site...all very nice! Only wish the beds were more comfortable! If they were it would get five stars from me!!!
The house is exactly as pictured. A little dated but clean. We were 6 adults and a baby and slept comfortably. There is no air conditioning but you don’t need it at night anyway. All in all it was a good experience.
This is the 2nd time we have stayed at this house. Both times it was amazing. The proximity to the beach and park is unbelievable. The deck provides the perfect view of the beach! Perfect for relaxing or keeping an eye on the kids.
The unit was a quick 45 second walk to Mission Beach. Plenty of towels, blankets and pillows for our group. We enjoyed the shared patio downstairs!
If you want to be steps from the beach this is a great house, but for people with families this location also hosts lots of partying. A lot of the amenities and basic functions of the house did not work and it is unlike other vacasa homes we have rented where they provide extra amenities like toys for kids, etc. there is plenty of space but it is all empty, the king bed was so hard you could feel springs poking thru, my husband had to sleep on the couch for a week. I would suggest this place for younger people who are looking for a bed, not for a family who would like to be comfortable having to spend anytime in the unit.
Thank you for your feedback! The amenities have been updated and are ready for future guests. We hope we can host you again soon!
A somewhat dated property, but well kept, and an excellent location
So close to the boardwalk and beach and Belmont Park! And restaurants and beach shopping. 2 miles to Sea World! Very casual and comfortable!
Great apartment! Part of a tri-plex, but very quiet. Within a literal stone's throw of the beach. Needs a good dusting. There was heavy dust present on the fans and cob webs on the ceiling.
Everything was clean, nicely organized. The beds were comfortable. Close to the beach, restaurants, Seaworld, Zoo, and close to the airport. Excellent for a family vacation.
This beach house is only steps away from the ocean. You can see the water from the deck and kitchen window. There was plenty of space for our group of 4 adults & 2 kids. Lots of extra beach towels, bath towels and linens plus the beach toys in the garage were a bonus. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Perfect for playing at the beach, less than a block to put your toes in the water.
It was steps from the beach and close to everything. We didn't have to use our car but once or twice the whole 5 days. The house was clean and had everything we needed. It was spacious. My twin, tween boys had their own bedroom and our toddler loved running circles throughout the whole house via the sunroom's two arcadia doors. It was our first time staying in a beach house and we will never stay at another hotel again. We were very impressed.
Giving the house 4 stars, the location was amazing-literally steps from Mission Beach. However, we had 2 power outages during our 3 night stay- one was from a breaker tripping, the other was i believe weather related. The tv’s in the bedrooms did not work- no signal. And the king bed’s mattress was anything but comfortable. Other than those little things it was a nice little vacation location- nice kitchen, comfortable sofa, and piping hot water!
The great beach Home had everything we need
We will come back
We had a great time here on our San Diego vacation. Our condo had a great view from the deck and is in an ideal location, close to the beach and a quick drive from downtown.
This home is really close to the beach! The deck has a great ocean view. The rooms are very spacious!
Loved the bright kitchen with a view of the ocean from the kitchen window.
The location can’t be beat. Short walk to the beach and ocean and so many great restaurants within walking distance, right by Belmont Park, and a very quick drive over to Sea World. The one downside is that the place looks overdue for a renovation and update. However, it had the basic essentials and was a clean place to eat breakfast and sleep, and it had a certain charm to it.
We enjoyed our stay. The rooms were good sized and we enjoyed the location-close to ocean and restaurants. All main amenities were there-coffee maker,toaster, etc.
Wonderful customer service, great location!
We enjoyed the location. Close to and in walking distance to good restaurants, a small grocery for items needed and close to an amusement park and arcade. And of course the BEACH. There was 7 of us and we had to come in 2 vehicles, so the only issue that was a little difficult was the parking.
The outdated interior is fully compensated by a very fine location near to the wonderfull Mission Beach and Ocean Front Walk.
Everyone noted about the outdated feel. Yes the house is older, and the furnishings aren't the latest and greatest., but they are functional and that's what mattered. We had plenty dishes and linens. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend this rental and would stay again.
Great location. Very clean and spacious. We enjoyed sitting out on the deck and being able to see the ocean.
Great location. Although the upper casa is nice for view, too many stairs for taking things up/down for us. Air circulation is poor for bedrooms. Very responsive staff. Some new appliances needed, and more instructions for TV/DVD player.
Have to pay for washer/dryer. The casa was clean, and we were able to get in a couple of hours early. The beach is steps away. Did have one especially NOISY
night until 2:00 A.M.
Awesome location! Literally just a few steps from the beach! The house was very functional had all the items we needed for our six guests! Only down side again is that the toilet was a little wobbly feeling when using it. There was no A/C but that was our fault as it was stated in the description. It was fine but a little warm during the mid afternoon. If you are looking for a place that is jug to sleep and eat it's perfect! Nice that the tv had Netflix so when we were all tired from the day at the beach could sit back and relax.
we had two vehicles and could only park one on sight in the garage. We had to keep the other car in a 24 hour parking zone which was a little difficult to find and had to move the car when the street sweepers came on a Tuesday.
Super close and with in walking distance to the Belmont park and little shops with restaurants!
Over all great place!
A handyman has fixed the wobbly toilet so it is no longer an issue. We are delighted to see this guest enjoyed their stay!
Convenient location with everything you need within walking distance
Great location and great apartment. It is a duplex with multiple units attached but this unit has good privacy and separate entrance. No A/C which is new for people coming from the South. Very comfortable at night but borderline during the day. Forces you to get out of the apartment which is nice. Steps away from the beach and blocks away from food and drinks. Great spot!
Close to beach , clean beds , clean house.
Very happy with our stay. Was able to fit a GMC Yukon XL(the long one) in the garage which was a big deal with parking issues. Very good place to stay with children. Will be staying again. Thank you.
Great location but property and included items (beach towels, cooler, grills, etc.) could have been described better in property overview. There were also not enough dishes or silverware in the kitchen.
Great location and nice place to stay for a few days during spring break!
Very spacious, family friendly layout.
Close to the beach, restaurants as well as fun activities.
Would definitely stay here again!
Awesome location and super close to the beach. Parking is a bit confusing and would be really tough if you have anything larger than a small Suv. Outside of that, it's a really nice spot and we would stay again.
Fully met expectations. Quieter than anticipated. Funky and homey. Garage was a huge plus. Would stay again in a heartbeat.
The location is absolutely prime and we loved our stay overall. The beds were comfortable enough although nothing special. We LOVED the sliding door that divided the bedrooms and bathroom and prevented our young kiddos from accessing the kitchen/living room/ front door. A minute from the beach, and the house provided most of the "creature comforts" we are used to in our own home.
Dislikes were the ants. We dealt with them the entire trip and on checkout realized it was because a sticky popsicle wrapper under the master bed (not ours, we never had popsicles) was the cause. Also quite a few of the pots and pans needed a decent clean out.
On top of this there is an additional apartment on the top floor. Which means people coming in and out with clear view into your kitchen area. On top of this, our stroller was stolen from the garage. Part of me wonders if the fact we had spring-breakers as co-renters below had something to do with this. Very disappointing.
Again, overall we loved the house. With some minor changes we would have easily rated this site a 5.
We are incredibly sorry to see this guest was a victim of theft. We believe this occurred because the guest regularly left the garage open. We would ask our guests to be sure the garage is always closed. Pest control has taken care of the ant situation so it should no longer be a problem.
Very nice location, close to the downtown and to the beach. Nice apartment
Cute little home just steps away from the beach.
This property is in a great location. Very close to the beach and 15 minute or less drive to lots of other activities. For the most part, property was clean but we were disappointed to find dirty dishes in the cupboards and drawers. There are some maintenance issues that need to be taken care of in the kitchen. Overall this place just needs a little bit of updating and loving attention. It worked for our stay this time but we will likely look for a different rental next time.
I had a great stay in the residence
If you're looking for a fancy upscale place to stay probably this is not for you. But if you're looking for a great location,clean rooms,space enough for seven with no hassle booking and local assistance we would recommend staying here. This location is right in the heart of Mission Beach steps from the boardwalk, close to the roller coaster and Wave House.
Great location and the deck has a view of the ocean a half block away. And short walks to shops, store, restaurant and Belmont park.
Without going into too much details, this place was good enough to spend a few days. We had a 3 night stay and the location plus amenities did the trick for us. However, there are few things that needs to be updated. One specifically is the king size bed, which old and springy. Overall, we got a good rate and we got what we paid for.
We have stayed here 5 years in a row with our extended family. Great place. Park the car and walk or bike everywhere.
Great location very close to the beach! Also close, within walking distance; to the bay, the park, Belmont Amusement Park, and many shops and restaurants. The place was not fancy but it slept 4 adults and 3 kids comfortably. It was clean, affordable, and super close to everything. We would stay here again!
I booked the beach house for my sister's bachelorette weekend, 5 people slept comfortably in it. The location cannot be beat, just steps from the beach, shops, and restaurants. We were very happy with the beach house but just have a few tips. The garage is great but will not fit anything larger than our standard size car. We were also surprised that there is another rental unit upstairs that we ended up sharing the upstairs patio with. We were under the impression that we had the top level all to ourselves when booking, which was a little disappointing. There is no air conditioning in the beach house so it was hot inside during the day. Overall, we had a wonderful experience and would greatly recommend this beach house.
We were only a 10 minute walk from Mission Restaurant, just a couple minutes from the Belmont Park, 10-15 minute walk from Pacific Beach, and only about a 15 minute drive from our favorite spot La Jolla! We didn't hardly have to use our car, it mostly stayed in the garage since we could literally walk everywhere we went. The property was clean with a few minor problems that could be easily corrected. We would definitely recommend this spot to others.
We ate from San Diego but moved away a few years ago. It was a perfect place top come back and stay at. Much more affordable and fun than dusting on any hotel in town.
I recently stayed here and i have to admit it was an awesome stay. Lots of local places, short walk to the beach, great weather. Although the neighbors who live in the local area tend to hang around their front yard and stare at everyone who walk by, making things a bit weird and awkward. However the local area, gaslamp being a short drive away, and great eateries, i would recommend this to anyone.
My family and I really enjoyed our stay. Great location, easy to get to all the local attractions. Only a few miles from the grocery store and coffee shops. If you want the beach area this is the place to stay.
Let me start with saying price was great but like everything in life you get what you pay for. From the time we arrived until we left we had ants in the bathroom and kitchen area. Called the Contact number in my email and left a message and never received a call back. Fortunately there was a gentleman cleaning the unit next door and he was able to contact somebody but this wasn't until our second to last day there. Got locked out because the key we were given only open the screen door and not the main door so if you stay in this unit don't lock the main door. Slept on couch because master bed is as hard as the tile floor. Everyone that helped us was very friendly and it's conveniently located close to beach and restaurants just will pay more next time for a nicer rental. Hopefully whoever buys this place that is up for sale puts some money into it.
This is a spacious apartment just a few doors off Mission Beach. It was clean and lovingly maintained. Upon check-in, there were a couple of issues that weren't quite right but Lance from Vacasa took care of both immediately. We were in good hands. I'd definitely stay here again and heartily recommend it to friends.
Location and price were good. Condition of unit was fine and as advertised. Had some issues with mgmt and no communication of garage and door code changes so there was a delay in getting into unit.
It is not the fanciest place, but it is more than sufficient and everything anyone would need. Great price and great location. Comfortable for 6 adults easily.
This property is all about the location! It is steps from the beach and within walking distance are parks, shopping and restaurants. It has a lived in beaching feel so if you are expecting high end this is not the property for you. However, if you looking for a great location for the right price this one works. It is great for a couples and families with small children. Not sure I would recommend it for multiple couples as there is only one small bathroom.
The location was great. We had problems with gaining entry (incorrect lockbox code provided and extreme difficulty in reaching anyone to get help). We also didn't have water for a while due to construction - a fact were not made aware of before our arrival despite the fact the city had notified the property.
The place itself was comfortable enough, tho nothing spectacular. We came to enjoy the beach and the sun and didn't intend to spend much time inside. As such, it was just fine. The deck is great for sitting and enjoying breakfast while watching the ocean.
There were a few cleanliness issues with the dishes, but everything was clean and tidy. It's not fancy by any means - the furnishings are older, the decor is...unique. But it works. We stayed with a few kids, and it was a great place for that.
Your feedback is very important to us as it helps us make improvements. We will make sure the lockbox is clearly explained and that housekeeping checks the dishes. We apologize that we missed notifying you regarding the water and appreciate your patience in the matter.
If your looking for a place that you can walk 60' to the beach surf and play in the sun all day come, back to the house clean up and get ready for nightlife, dinner etc..this is the place. if you want fancy high class stuff go somewhere else and pay for it. This place was great for our family...We will be back!
We loved our stay here. You should be aware that the parking spot will ONLY fit small cars. The garage is very tight. We had a truck and ended up paying for a spot for a few nights, then figured out you can park on the main street for free. We loved the beach and spent every morning and evening there. It's great to have the restaurants so close as well, and the little amusement park/shopping area is really fun too. I liked being so close to Sea World as well. Really, it was close to everything we did. A few minutes to the Zoo, the USS Midway, Seaport Village--all felt close and were short, easy drives. The kitchen was well-supplied and very functional. The dining room really only seats 4, so you either have to take it outside or bring chairs in from the covered patio if you have more people. It's not high fashion, but it's clean and comfortable and the location is awesome. Would rent it again.
The property was perfect. 3 houses from the beach and in a great location. Kids were close to beach and pier. The house easily accommodated the 7 of us and we were able to spread out. I will definitely rent here again.
The location was great, just a few steps to the beach. It was clean and cozy. The furniture was outdated, that's the only thing about the rental but other than that great place. I would definitely recommend this place.
Great location next to the beach. The house was nice and there was a nice outdoor patio and bbq area to really enjoy the whole beach experience.
Everyone was very responsive, unfortunately we had to rely on vacasa and owner responsiveness more than we should have. We couldn't be happier than the location and quite frankly that's what you're paying for. However, it's clear that the owner has made choices for furnishings, kitchen equipment, plumbing, etc. with the cheap solution in mind rather than something they he would put in him own home. This is the second time we stayed there so clearly we were willing to come back, however, it seems that the owner could do so much more without having to break the bank.
The property served its purpose, which was to provide a relatively clean place to eat, shower and sleep while we were on-the-go 10-12+ hours each day. To spend more time at the property would have been depressing. It looked and felt like a cheap rental. The paint, furnishings and dÃ©cor were outdated and second-rate. We couldn't help but think there are much nicer rentals available. Walking around the neighborhoods proved that as well. We will look harder for other options on our next vacation.
For the price, we could not have been happier with the location. Only a few steps from the beach. Just a couple of steps from properties that were twice as expensive.
