Condo, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths (Sleeps 10)
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 Mission Beach
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.

Amazing home, perfect location!
We stayed in this amazing home to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. We held a vow renewal ceremony at the Catamaran Resort and Spa which was only a short walk away. This home was very spacious as we shared with 1 other family. It is within walking distance to pretty much everything and the decks are amazing. We ate dinner most nights on the top deck and enjoyed the outdoor bbq and refrigerator. Home is extremely well stocked and having a bathroom to every bedroom was very convenient. If you love outdoor activities this home is in the best location. You can rent so many different types of water crafts just right outside. We brought our own jetskies and it was perfect to have parking within walking distance for the skies. Thanks again for allowing us to share your little bit of paradise.
Griffin's Graduation Weekend
We had a wonderful time in Mission Beach celebrating our son's graduation from SDSU! The house slept 10 of us with no problems. The location is amazing... right on the water and next to the rec path. We enjoyed using the top patio to gather as a family and enjoy the beautiful view. We had plenty of parking. Two small rental cars fit in the garage and a public parking lot is right next to the house. We hope to come back in the future!
Congrats to your grad! So glad you al enjoyed yourselves and hope you will return!
The place was located perfect for the kids to play at the beach
Great Bay views with privacy, clean and spacious, 3 out of the 4 bathrooms renovated
Sally and her staff Vanessa were both attentive to all questions. We had a medical situation near the end of our stay and they both were empathetic and accommodating. This house has 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms with one of the bathrooms being just outside the bedroom and near the main living area. This bedroom also has a closet with an excellent washer and dryer. The 2 decks are a great spot to enjoy the views while still having privacy. The kitchen is well appointed with most things you need for a short term stay which makes cooking at home that much easier. There was even a decent salad spinner which has been missing in other homes we've rented. The house is located in close walking distance to several good eating spots and bars both North and South. Our last night we dined el fresco at the Caterman and both the food and service were excellent. Coming from a small city in Canada, I was not expecting the tight fitting houses and lane-ways common to this area. When we first arrived in the lane way at the back of the house, I was quite worried we were in a bad area and the house would not be as pictured. Once inside the main level, I was reassured that the house was as depicted in the ads and we enjoyed the quietness of the Bay while being just a short walk to the ocean boardwalk. Since I value the reviews of others, I like to provide feedback that manages expectations for future guests. The 2 homes next to Sally's are currently under renovation which did not bother us other than we were surprised that we were not told ahead of time. Some areas of the home have been renovated beautifully. Other areas are in need of updating. There are older carpets on the stairs and in the bedrooms that are worn and musty. The mustiness may have been due to the unusual amount of rain that San Diego experienced the week prior to our arrival. Seeing as 2 of us in the group have allergies and breathing difficulties, Vanessa went out of her way to provide us with natural methods to absorb the odors, which was greatly appreciated. To give this house a 5 star rating, I would suggest replacing all carpets with flooring similar to the master and reupholstering the living room furniture. Sally's home feels like a home and not a stark rental. We enjoyed cocktails on the deck and resting in the comfy beds after visiting the nearby sites. Thank-you Sally and Vanessa for accommodating us on our first trip to San Diego.
Wow what a family fun place
The house was just right for our group and the location cannot possibly be beat Steps away from the bay from the lovely Olive Café and all the rental equipment bicycles and so forth The weather cooperated most days and almost always starts out with a beautiful hot sun shining through our bay front windows Susie and sallie were right there when we needed them and encouraged us to use all of their wonderful appointments. All family members thanked us repeatedly for such a wonderful affair The little ones cried and took photographs today as we left
It was a pleasure to have your group and we are so glad you all appreciated and enjoyed our home and the area as much as we do!
Wonderful family visit
10 family members stayed here over Christmas and had a wonderful time. There was plenty of room to spread out (we rearranged the living room just a bit to accommodate a Brio train), we enjoyed sunrise views with coffee, daily paddleboarding and walks to the ocean side. Our family loves to cook and the kitchen made it easy to make all the good things we’d hoped for. Love the bbq and balconies. It was an easy place to have a 2 year old with us - the two queen bedroom is a great family accommodation. Our greeter, Suzi, couldn’t have been nicer. We all agreed we would happily stay here again. Thank you!
Glad to hear you all had a Merry Mission Beach Christmas!
