We loved the location of the area, the price, the home, and the property owners. It was all in all perfect!! The home was super clean, conveniently located, and super cozy. We loved our stay so much we hated to say farewell. Thank you so much for allowing us this opportunity.

Extremely pleased!!

Owner's Response: It was special for us to be able to host LaDonna and her family and to help them enjoy Mission Beach for their week. One of the main purposes for their visit was to attend a Veterans' Motorcycle Convention in Mission Valley, a few miles inland by car, but they also wanted to afford the family a chance to enjoy the amenities of our beach and bay for their first visit to San Diego. One of the nice things about our location is that during peak traffic in both the AM & PM you're driving relatively unfettered while the traffic for the majority of commuters is going in the opposite direction. This allowed them to spend a lot more time in the beach during the convention days rather than on the road. Also, with being a retired military veteran couple ourselves, we felt privileged to host a military veteran's family and to offer them a nice discount for their stay. Although our published rates for Mission Bay Hideaway are relatively low for the Beach and Bay Area for our level of amenities, we regularly negotiate with 1st time guests to reach an equitable nightly rate that fits their planned budget. We believe that it's more important for newcomers to enjoy our wonderful apartment than to lose them because of financial concerns. This has led to many long term and repeat visits from a number of families. We hope LaDonna and her family returns again in the very new future. Sincerely, Bill & Calina

I stayed for 7 nights with my wife and two boys aged 7 and 9. Bill was fantastic to deal with and was very helpful . The property was overall pretty clean, however could have used a more detailed clean prior to our arrival. There was plenty of room in the apartment for the 4 of us. The highlight was of course the location. A few steps to the beautiful bay, and a few more to the beach, the location was absolutely brilliant.

Owner's Response: We truly enjoyed hosting and getting to know Michael and his wife and 2 sons. It's an incredible privilege for us when a family comes from as far away as Australia to enjoy our Mission Bay Hideaway, and we want their experience to be the best possible. Our location is obviously a huge plus for visitors since it affords all of the best amenities Mission Bay and Mission Beach have to offer, with the majority being only a short walk away. Being able to compare Navy career experiences with Michael was an added bonus. We also appreciate greatly any feedback when anything is not completely satisfying as this is the only way we can make needed improvements in a timely manner. We encourage all guests to leave helpful suggestions in their departure notes. As such, we'll immediately look into Michael's mention of detailed cleanliness, and quickly resolve any shortfalls with our Housekeeper. At the same time, we'll continue to make improvements based on recent inputs from other guests, such as installing a wall mounted hair dryer and providing a drying rack for wet clothing.

Perfect Location, Fantastic Owner

Staying at Mission Bay Hideaway was the best choice I ever made. The locations is PERFECT! This rental is very close to a lot of things, yet just far enough out of the hustle and bustle of Pacific Beach. It is a 30 second walk to the beach, 15 second walk to the bay and 5 minute walk to Pacific Beach restaurants and shops. I really enjoyed catching the morning surf without having to drive as well as grilling in the afternoon and getting to catch the sunset last minute with a burger in hand. On top of it all, the owners are great people and ready to help with anything!

Owner's Response: Hosting Matthew & Kelby was a distinct pleasure for us as owner/managers of Mission Bay Hideaway. They stayed 3 & 1/2 months, which allowed us to share a lot of experiences with them. Being able to get to know wonderful people from all over the world is one of the many bonuses associated with offering a vacation rental; and an added bonus is when families return year after year, treating our apartment as a second home. We hope Matt & Kelby return some day soon and we'll make every effort to stay in touch with them in the interim. Sincerely, Bill & Calina

The condo was great. We stayed for Christmas week and had all the amenities we needed to cook a Christmas dinner and enjoy our company. The condo was very clean, had a nice Mexican motif, and our host, Bill, was very responsive. I would highly recommend this condo.

Owner's Response: We are extremely appreciative of Suzan's review and the fact that she and her family were able to enjoy Christmas Dinner as well as all the amenities our Mission Bay Hideaway has to offer. We pride ourselves in offering a special location and allowing our guests to enjoy most of the same things we do in our upstairs home. As mentioned previously, we built our home in 2003 and with the downstairs 2 bedroom, 2 bath apartment intended for our elderly parents. When we later had to move Mom and Dad upstairs with us, we converted the apartment to a vacation rental. Over the last 14 years we've been able to offer meet hundreds of wonderful folks from all over America as well as many foreign countries. It's aways heartwarming to receive wonderful reviews like this one from Suzan and we'll strive to meet the same expectations for many new guests in the future. Sincerely, Bill & Calina

Canadian Thanksgiving vacation

Our family of four truly enjoyed our stay in San Diego! The home was a perfect location being one block from the bay and just a short walk to the ocean and Boardwalk. My family was truly impressed with my VRBO find...yeah me! The hosts were very friendly and great to deal with. The use of the bikes and kayak were really fun and made our trip. Every day we went for bike rides and found great places to eat dinner at every night. The home is exactly as pictured with a nice santafe feel. We enjoyed every part of our stay. Thank you Bill and Calina, hope to get to stay in your home again soon. It was a great thanksgiving weekend for us, much appreciated!

Owner's Response: We enjoyed hosting Jason and his family for their Thanksgiving vacation and look forward to their next visit. Jason listed some of the key things we highlight to our potential guests and we're extremely pleased that we lived up to Jason's expectations. At departure time we ask our guests to make any suggestions for things they think might improve our Mission Bay Hideaway for future visits; and recently we received a request for a bigger TV in the living room. So, we just installed a Samsung 40 inch, smart TV in the living room and moved the smaller TV to the Master Bedroom. Both will be on swivels and adjustable for better viewing. Other recent improvements were new pots and pans and new table and bench seats in the front yard BBQ and dining area, and a new washer/dryer. We truly appreciate any feedback from guests to remedy any deficiency immediately and to ensure that their stay is the best possible.
