About our home

This is a 1920's bungalow/cottage which has been completely restored to provide a very comfortable home at America's finest beach. Fully furnished, a new modern kitchen and a full size washer & dryer plus offstreet parking.

Formerly a cottage/studio duplex, recently remodeled and converted to a 2 Bedroom/2 Bath. Just 50 steps from the boardwalk on Mission Beach, and only two blocks from Mission Bay/Santa Clara Point. Located ½ way between Crystal Pier & the Roller Coaster at Belmont Park. The house is ideally suited to take advantage of the total Mission Beach experience.

We bought this former "vacation rental" and converted it to our 2 br/2bath home. We lived there for 2 years and then due to a job transfer we maintained it by again renting it out as a vacation rental.

Now retired, it is finally and once again our home. While small, it is fully self contained and less than 50 yards from the beach.

Mission Beach is a very unique beach community. Situated on a narrow strand, it is like an island. With the ocean on one side, and Mission Bay on the other. No matter where you are in Mission Beach, you are 2 blocks at most from either body of water.

We can step outside to watch dolphins swimming while walking the boardwalk, or go sit at the bay on the 4th of July and watch fireworks. A number of firework events on the 4th of July with 1 from Sea World, 1 from the city of San Diego & 1 from Chula Vista and others from La Jolla and even more from afar. There is one every week from Sea World.

We are a Husband & Wife with kids now all grown and out on their own. I, the husband (Mel) am a retired Corporate Controller (Accountant). My wife (Jeanette) is from Argentina and also retired. While in the US she was a translator for both a school district in Arizona and a court administrator in San Diego. We are looking to travel extensively. We are very very open to when and/or where we travel. We are most interested in Europe, Central & South America, and SE Asia.
