About the property

Condo, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths (Sleeps 10)

The 3 decks of this beautiful condo overlook Sail Bay in Mission Bay, yet this home is also less than 100 yards from the ocean. This allows easy access to the surf, yet provides a quiet retreat in the evening.

This property recently underwent a major renovation with professional designers and was featured in San Diego Magazine's Design section! The living room and kitchen overlook the beach. The dining room sits just back of the living room. The dining table is 60'' round, which accommodates 8, but also has 2-15'' leaves for even larger gatherings. This is not a typical rental with sparse decorations; this is a lovely home. But as beautiful as the decor is, it is only matched by the views of the water below.

The living room has a 48'' HDTV with surround sound and remote controlled lighting in both the living room and dining room.

The gourmet kitchen was professionally designed with high-end appliances, custom cabinets, sandblasted bar and stunning glass tile backsplash and contemporary countertops.

Two central air conditioner cool up and down stairs, but are rarely necessary due to the cool ocean breezes.

There are two master bedrooms suites and no bedroom is adjacent to another, providing maximum privacy.

The 13 x 35 ft. 3rd floor deck has a lovely garden gazebo ideal for barbequing on its LYNX Pro BBQ and entertaining with it's bar and refrigerator.

Three parking spaces, unheard of at the beach, make beach living easy and a location around the corner from watercraft rentals and bicycle rentals make having fun a breeze! This is beach living at its best.

The location of this condominium also makes it easy to enjoy the other sights and events beautiful, fun San Diego has to offer.

About Sally Hardwick

Our primary home is in the high desert so San Diego is a great escape from winter weather and a nice change from snow in winter and the intense heat of summer. Now retired, my husband and I like to spend time in San Diego with friends and family, which we regularly do. Therefore, you will find our home to be very well supplied and maintained. It is our second home though we enjoy sharing it with others who visit San Diego. I'm sure you'll feel at home as well.

Sally Hardwick purchased this condo in 1997

Why Sally Hardwick chose San Diego County

We shopped for a couple of years before buying our home. Our family is all very tall, so it was important that we find a home that was large enough to be comfortable. And, we found it! Our home has very generously sized rooms...2 master suites and two other bedrooms that are very comfortable. We also liked the fact that there is lawn out front before the sand. This allows us to play games like crochet, frisbee, etc. without having to get sandy (unless we want to!). Our home is also close to cafes and beach rentals for beach toys and equipment, bicycles and wet suits. There is a playground for children very nearby and basketball and tennis in the same area, just step away. We love our location: it is convenient, not as busy as the ocean side (though just a few steps away) with immediate access to all our favorite activities.

I would go for it!

  • 4 of 5

I would've given it 3.5 stars if I could. The house and location are absolutely beautiful. The location is very convenient to plenty of restaurants in the area. The guests upstairs didn't feel like they were getting enough hot water and showered downstairs. The garage was not tall enough to fit the van we were traveling inside and we were forced to park around the block. I'm sure this would've been a huge issue if we were traveling in the summer months, but because it was November there was spaces available. It was very convenient that a lot of the restaurants in the area delivered. Everybody thought the beds were super comfortable! I feel like for the price we were paying there should've been steaming hot water everywhere as needed. We didn't spend a lot of time in the house, but we did notice some small ants in the kitchen which was definitely a turn off for cooking purposes. They offered to come spray but since we weren't there much longer we decided against it. The homeowner was very nice as well as all of the neighbors. The TVs were awesome. I personally stayed in the downstairs bedroom which I felt was the best I took a lovely bath every evening. I could definitely see renting there again.

A special home with lots of room and an ideal location - couldn't have been better

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time renting this lovely home. We're a three generation family and there was room for all seven of us. The house was well appointed, the location was perfect and the views spectacular. There was plenty of opportunity to walk and bike and nearby paddle boarding and kayaking - something for everyone in the family. We'd love to return some day.

Mission Bay house

  • 5 of 5

Great location and perfect for a family or friends reunion. Calm bay water for young children with watercraft rentals close by. Ocean is only 2 blocks away. Kitchen is well equipped and there are 2 outside decks with a barbecue and seating for eating, reading, and relaxing. Families with babies or young toddler will need to bring or rent pack-and-play and high chairs.

Beautiful Home on the Bay!!

  • 4 of 5

This home we very beautiful. It was a perfect location right on the bay. It was very relaxing environment. We went with our family of 10 adults and 1 2 year old!! It fit everyone perfectly and there was plenty of space to spread out!!

I wish I could leave 4 1/2 stars. I would like to have given 5 stars but we could not get the DVD player to work on the living room and in one of the upstairs bedroom. We tried contacting the house manager Vanessa on Friday night and then twice on Saturday and never heard back from her. We ended up cramming into the master bedroom to watch a movie all together!! This was the only disappointment we had with the house. I would recommend however possibly working it out to rent the bottom part of the house as well. The people who stayed below us were very cranky and didn't like us to make any noise. On Saturday night at 9pm we were having a dance party 2 adults and my 2 year old son and they got mad at us for making too much noise.

On Friday we went to Sea World and that was so nice and the house was only about 15 minutes away.

On Saturday we hung out on the bay all day. We rented paddle boards and sea dos. It was such a beautiful day. We also rode our bikes along the path. What was really nice was being able to use the house beach chairs and toys.

I would definitely love to stay here again...we even talked about making it a yearly trip!!

Hope this review helps, by the way the homeowner Sally is very helpful and nice!! Thanks for a wonderful trip Sally...hope to stay here again real soon!!

Owner's Response: Melissa - thank you for your nice review and I'm so pleased you enjoyed yourselves. I'm sorry to hear of your problems with the DVD and that you were unable to get hold of my assistant. I've contacted her and made sure she understands that should she not be available, that she notify the guests if there are any problems or issues, they can contact me directly. Again, I'm so sorry for the inconvenience...but hopefully, that was a good family bonding opportunity all together on that king bed ;o) Take care and thanks again for the review.

There are stairs up to our unit and then stairs again to the upper floor so our home is not wheelchair accessible and may be difficult for those with mobility problems. Please call if you've any questions. Our home has 3 decks. The large upper deck has a shade pergola and BBQ island with sink and refrigerator. There are 2 tandem indoor parking spaces and 1 outdoor space. Please avoid large SUVs if possible, although you may be able to park on Santa Clara Pt. if your vehicle is too tall for the garage. Santa Clara Pt. also has tennis, basketball, watercraft rentals and a children's playground. Our home is also located on an area of the beach with a grass apron so it is great for volleyball, football and just relaxing out of the sand.
