Area Information
While some may compare San Diego's Mission Beach to the East Coast's Atlantic City and Coney Island, there is a unique Southern California vibe you can't find anywhere else here. Nestled between Pacific Beach on the north side, and Belmont Park on its southern side, Mission Beach offers a lively and robust variety of activities in the sun, surf and sand. From hot dog stands to fine dining eateries, hot night clubs to street performers, expect to find all kinds of free-spirited beach goers in a fun, carnival-like atmosphere along the sandy shores.

Those lucky enough to stay here will have front row seating for the amazing views of the sun dipping into the Pacific Ocean. And you might even get a glimpse of the elusive Green Flash (if you don't know what the Green Flash is, ask a local!) 99 steps from our property!

Most of the action in Mission Beach centers around Belmont Park at the intersection of Mission Blvd. and West Mission Bay Drive where you can ride the historic Giant Dipper roller coaster, or rent a set of rollerblades to ride up and down the boardwalk. This is where all walks of life all go out for a walk, a ride, a roll, a stroll, a surf, a beer or a bite to eat - or simply to watch other people out doing their thing. Walking distance from this rental!

South Mission Beach offers a slower pace from the lively activity in the Belmont Park area. There are some great spots for fishing at the end of the road at South Mission Beach Park, where you can cast off the jetty and watch the boats pass in and out through the Harbor Channel. You'd never know it to look, but a half-mile off the coast are a series of shipwrecks, placed here to create an artificial reef and a diver's haven for underwater exploration. Also walking distance from our rentals!

Owner Supplied Testimonials

Thank you so much....we had a wonderful stay in this very comfortable clean cozy rental. Location is great and an easy few steps to the beach and bay. We did not need anything...just clothing and your own food. We had a little problem with water pressure in the bathroom basin and it was seen to the same day. Linda came round to greet us and is a wonderful warm person. If I ever come to Mission Beach again I will come and stay here. No need to have your own transport as public transport is very good and cabs are easy to flag down. The bus service is also very good and we had no problems getting around visiting different tourist attractions. We had an awesome stay here! -- Desiree, Durban South Africa

Such a great experience! The apartment was not only at the perfect location (right at the beach) but also very nice furnished and in good condition. Linda was very nice to us! She welcomed us perfectly and helped out wherever she was able. We were in nice contact even before our stay! I'd come back to this place and stay with her any time! - Sabrina, Germany

Both my husband and I had a great time at 99 Steps. We were there celebrating our 1 year wedding anniversary and Linda helped make our time there extra special. (Thanks again Linda;) It honestly was the ideal location.. close to everything; bike shops across the street, bars and restaurants are all a short walk away and of course having the beautiful sandy beach steps away made our stay even more incredible. I know we will definitely be returning to San Diego more than our usual yearly visit. We were both so sad to leave.. the apartment really was in an unbelievable spot. I miss the beach already :/ Thanks again!! - Sally, Arizona

We stayed 5 nights in peak season during August at 99 steps. The beach is basically even closer than 99 steps and really wonderful - even during weekdays in August it is quite empty. The apartment is directly on Mission Boulevard so the living room can get a little loud in the morning, the bedroom is in the back and quite. Altogether the apartment has everything you need for a good beach vacation including stuff for the kids and some boards. Parking was also no problem - as in any other city in California you have to move your car around the street cleaning times. The host is absolutely helpful, nice and uncomplicated. We enjoyed our stay and can definitely recommend the apartment. The infrastructure around has also everything in walking distance. The stay at 99steps was the highlight at the end of our California round-trip. - Stefan, Germany

99 Steps was an awesome place to stay in Mission Beach. You could not ask for a better location. Extremely easy and close access to both the beach and the bay, and located on a great street where restaurants and shops are in walking distance. Safe and quiet at night too. The apartment was very clean. We would definitely stay here again! - Kelli, Pittsburgh
