This condo was amazing! We had a wonderful week staying at Mission Beach. Sunset Sands was the perfect escape for our vacation. I highly recommend you stay here for your next San Diego vacation.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your lovely words. We are so glad your stay was wonderful! Mission Beach IS a great escape and we continually work to make it "your home away from home". Thank you!!!

“the view”

Reviewed 4 Mar 2013

the view was spectacular, falling asleep to the sound of the ocean was the best. the place has everything you need; it's not new but it is comfortable and really has everything you need, just bring food. i thought being on the top floor l would lack the atmosphere we were looking but it was the best; we spent most of the time on the balcony.

“President's weekend get together”

Reviewed 22 Feb 2012

Condo is perfectly situated. The beach out the front and close to all that San Diego offers out the back. The parking garage was terrific, for one car, however other spots are nearly impossible to find. The condo is very small but well cared for and with four people it was just what we needed. We will definately stay at this location again, if it is available..

“Fantastic location on the beach”

Reviewed 2 Jan 2012

We chose this unit because of it's great location. I was able to watch my daughter enjoy her first surfing lesson right from the patio! It was nice to be able to step right outside and walk along the beach and boardwalk and shops and restaurants just a block over on Mission Blvd. The unit itself was comfortable and had all the amenities but could use some freshening. (The carpet is filthy and so are the towels: I have some nicer looking ones that I use to dry my car.) The beds were comfortable as was the double recliner facing the new flat screen TV and the great view. We appreciated the security of having our rental car in the locked garage.

Owner's reply: The carpet will be replaced on Jan 9th, 2012. The unit was also pianted at tne end of Dec of 2011.

“Little piece of board walk paradise”

Reviewed 12 Oct 2009

This condo is spotless and well decorated. The kitchen was very up to date and was well equipped. The chest on the deck has sand toys for kids and a couple of kites and beach games which is also fun. The payment process was easy and over all the whole experience was great. Location is everything with this condo. Ocean front, ground level with the board walk and near all kinds of points of interest. Beware that it is a little disconcerting at first to be right on the board walk and have people walking by at all hours, especially at night when you get people peeping in. It can sometimes be very noiser with skate boarders and such, but as soon as we figured out how to use the storm shutters for privacy we were fine and helped to decrease the noise at night too. Being on the bottom floor was a VERY nice feature, you can park your car right in front of the front door for easy access to unload your luggage and go in and out. The outdoor shower is nice to wash off teh sand, and the big screen TV and DVD player was very fun for late night movie watching. The Weather was sunny and wonderful 6 out of 7 days. The water was great too. There are several fabulous restaurants within 1-3 short blocks--very easy walking distance. Try out the Olive Cafe for breakfast, you wont be sorry. Bike rentals, boogie board rentals and surf classes are all within a one block walk to Mission Ave. Sea world is about 7 minutes away. Great fun to be had for families, girls getaway, and singles.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

"My parents loved your place. Thanks again for the fair price and the flexibility. You sure know what a vacationer needs, don't you? You had everything from aluminum foil to spices to games and movies! So, how about you and I work a deal where I can just rent your place all year long. I wish."

"I gasped - my eyes saw nothing else, as the view enveloped me. I ran through the door and I was amazed at the spectacular view from #14. That's what I felt after I'd come through the door a week ago. And as I look at the ocean right now, I don't want to leave.

The condo was so great that even after seeing the Hotel Del Coronado, we still thought #14 was much better. We kept ourselves busy with the great selection of movies and books and enjoyed every minute of Spring break '03 in beautiful San Diego. Yes, some of us braved the mighty Pacific on the boogie boards. And although we were numb for a while, it was worth it.

We don't want to leave but we know we have to. Thank you for the wonderful week."

"Just had to come back for another slice. I dream and think of you often... I wish I could make you mine completely and forever... My never-ending love story with #14. We met some new friends this time around Kingston and Polly, some of the neighbors and their dogs. We feel completely at ease and at home here. I thank you for this ""piece/peace" of my life. I will "see/sea" you next year, my love."

"One never knows what to expect when you rent over the internet. Because of your extended web site you gave us the info needed to go ahead and book our week. We were more than pleased with the condo, the beach area and San Diego itself! The furnishings were comfortable and good-looking. The essentials were there, as you said. The view was spectacular. I will hold it in my mind as we head back to Wisconsin with zero degrees and snow blowing hard. We hit Old Town, Tijuana, La Jolla, Sea Port Village, the beach, the beach, the beach. Thanks for a tremendous vacation. We would love to come back next year."

"Enjoyed the sounds of the waves, watching the dawn of each day on the Pacific, as the sky turns light. Experienced the moon setting into the ocean as well. The condo is a perfect location for the local attractions. We had a fabulous time in San Diego."

"What a view and sound! The perfect place for our eleventh honeymoon revival. Thanks for equipping the condo so well. We really cooked a 4-course menu for ten people without missing anything. Too bad our week is over. "

"We had a wonderful week in San Diego. The apartment is so comfortable and homey and the view is amazing. We spent many an hour sitting on the balcony watching the waves come in. The sun came out for the last three days of our trip making everything seem even more beautiful. You San Diegans are really blessed!"

It's perfect. Thank you!

"We have had a really good time here on our first trip to this side of the U.S.A. There is so much we want to see before we return to England. We have found #14 very well equipped and comfortable. Every evening when we returned after dinner it really felt like coming home. We will miss the view and the sound of the surf so much."

"We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your ocean home. Many thanks."

"The view is so perfect. The water, the place and the sand are perfect. Out of any of the rooms, this one is perfect, the best. We are going to have the greatest spring break ever."

"Havin' a great time at the beach here. It is so nice and beautiful. I'm here with all my Mexican family. This place has everything - movies, a great view, comfortable beds, boogie boards, and cable."

"What a truly beautiful place. We come to the beach as often as we can for weekend stays and this has been our most enjoyable stay. We don't live far away, but what a treat to be able to come for a while and enjoy this wonderful place. The view, the sound, and the very comfortable condo... It is our wedding anniversary and we couldn't have had a better time. Thank you! The peaceful surrounding and the constant crashing of the waves made it our best anniversary yet. The property management team was so helpful and professional. They made us feel our stay was important to them. We hope to come back here often. We don't want to leave!"

"Your condo was very well equipped with all necessary things - enough dishes, utensils, etc. Perfect! "

"Thank you for sharing your lovely condo! Your generosity and attention to detail made our stay even better. Thank you for all the supplies, plastic bags, condiments, etc., etc. We especially enjoyed the candle on the deck. Many blessings to you for all the joy you bring to others!!"
