“Fantastic location, great view”
Reviewed 30 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Almost 5 stars except for a few points.

Nice place. Great view from the unit. Close to amusement/arcade area yet far enough so that the beach area is less crowded. The beach is nice and clean. Ignore the seaweed.

The unit is small but comfortable. The owner (Steve) provides just about everything you need including coffee maker (for grounded coffee), toaster, dishes, glasses, cups, silverwares and cooking utensils. The grills are downstairs. We brought our own coffee maker, toilet papers, towels and beach chairs just in case but they were all unnecessary. I used a little of Steve's grounded coffee, hope he doesn't mind. Yes, you should bring your own beach umbrella and sun tan lotion if you plan on being under the sun for a while. Steve provides two beach chairs and two boogie boards.

The pull down (Murphy?) bed and the pillows are very comfortable. The unit is excellent for two, OK for three, but pushing a bit for four. The loft could sleep one person but the glass panel facing the bathroom needs to be screened off. The couch could sleep one small person also.

Such a nice place but why not 5 stars then? Just some small stuff. Here it goes:

- We could not figure out how to use the microwave (except for the quick 1 minute setting).
- Could not figure out how to use the stove at all.
- The shower. It is great if you love cold water blasting from the unescapable large shower head directly above (I can almost guarantee you will scream the first time you turn it on). Tips: Turn on the lowest of the three water valves on the far wall for the water to come out from the front of the tub, then adjust the water temperature (barely lukewarm at best), then if you rather use the handheld shower, lift the little knob on the right side of the tub at the far end.
- Need better direction to find the parking space and the unit. Unless you know the area it is impossible to find 3275 Ocean Front as an address. Our GPS wouldn't do it.
First the parking space: Set your GPS for 3292 Mission Blvd. The parking lot is about 10 steps past 3292 across an alley (which has no name and is between Santa Barbara and Jamaica) on Mission Blvd.
To get to the unit to unload your stuff: From 3292 Mission Blvd (heading south) turn right at the alley before the parking lot. Go straight up the alley, turn left at the end of the alley (on Strandway), then turn right into Jamaica Ct. and go to the end before the beach walk. Double park or whatever near the grills to unload your stuff. The gate to the unit is next to four grills. Walk right thru and up the steps to find your unit. Easy once you did it.

Happy that you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for the feedback...a couple quick updates. We have included a map along with written directions to condo and parking spot. Address is 3275 Ocean Front Walk, #7, Mission Beach, CA, 92109. We check on water and the ondemand hot water heater thermostat was turned down to 100 degrees...we reset it and turned it back up to 120 degrees ( thermostat is under bath sink). Stove is working...simply push on then up and sown arrows to select temperature (model Dacor).

“Everything as advertised”
Reviewed 11 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This unit is very clean, comfortable, and conveniently located to all Mission Beach and San Diego attractions.

We loved the sliding doors which allowed the unit to cool naturally, and gave us the experience of listening to the waves at night as we dozed off to sleep.

The beach chairs and towels, and boogie boards the owners provided are great perks.

The only reason I didn't rate this "Excellent" is because there wasn't much hot water. It wasn't a big enough issue to warrant a call to the owner during our stay, but I informed them after our stay, and they assured me it would be resolved ASAP. I'm confident they will.

If we return to this beach, we will definitely consider staying here again.

“Ocean View Stunning with Large Sliding Windows.”
Reviewed 4 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

people found this review helpful

This Condo has large expansive views of the ocean. You can hear the waves break from inside the unit with the large sliding windows open. This unit is ideal for couples. We had a wonderful time. I would not use this unit for more than 2 people. If you do come with more than two the other sleeping area is up a ladder and it is partially over the bathroom and the other sleeping area. The unit has a great kitchen. We never had The murphy bed in the up position. We always had the bed so that we can sit or lay in it. The bed faces the ocean. The location is ideal.
