Our vacation home on Rockaway Court is a single family two-level home on the bayside of North Mission Beach.

Upstairs is another bedroom with a queen size bed and a third bedroom with 2 twin beds. There is also a queen size sofa bed in the living room for additional sleeping arrangements.

We can provide an air conditioning unit for an additional fee. Please contact us to reserve the inventory.

Mission Bay is located just 40 steps from the house. There is a white sandy beach and a nice boardwalk for walking, biking, and rollerblading. There are many wonderful restaurants for breakfast, lunch, and dinner within walking distance!

It's close to all the main attractions: SeaWorld, the world famous San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park, Old Town with it's excellent restaurants, Belmont Park and it's authentic 1920's wooden roller-coaster, Seaport Village, downtown San Diego's Gaslamp Quarter, the Convention Center and Petco Park. Come and enjoy all that San Diego has to offer including our unbeatable weather!

Vacation rentals in San Diego are for the most part, second homes for the owners. Therefore, some furniture or decor may differ from what is pictured because the owners needed or wanted to replace something. Professional photos are expensive and we can not re-photograph the rental every time something is changed but we do maintain the listing content with any notable furnishing changes especially related to sleeping arrangements. (*Please note: We do not give refunds because a piece of furniture or artwork has changed)

It is important for you to read all the details about your property. We highlight everything you need to know about your vacation rental in our listing, through emails, home manuals, in-home signage and phone correspondence. We want our guests to feel prepared, informed and at ease while staying with us. We are always available if you have questions! 

*NOTE: This home is in a residential neighborhood and, as such, is a NOISE SENSITIVE property. Respect must be shown for the property and neighbors at all times.

Violation of these rules MAY result in immediate eviction from the property per your rental agreement, and/or fines from the San Diego Police. Please review your rental agreement for complete details and rules about your home!

Upon confirming your booking, we will send you a rental agreement for your upcoming stay which you will need to complete. We will also contact you within 24 hours of the booking to obtain contact information and to address any questions or concerns you may have regarding your upcoming visit along with the House Rules & Rental Agreement. The check-in details will not be shared until the rental agreement has been signed.

We have just returned from our second stay in this property and will be looking to book again for next year. It's position gives the best of both worlds as the bay and beach are only a minutes walk away. It was good to see the beach chairs, body boards etc. had been replaced along with the bikes. Overall we had a wonderful stay.

Extremely easy to deal with. Booked the room. Received a welcome email with all information regarding location and access to the house. Great vacation with not one worry.
Perfect vacation. Exactly what I wanted in a beach house. Thank you for making it a wonderful experience.

Everyone I spoke with was happy and eager to help. Such a great company to work with!
This house was perfect for our family! 3 adults, 5 kids(ages3-11). We all had a place to hang out without getting in eachother's hair! Easy to walk to the beach, quiet neighbors, although the main road could be noisy at night. Plenty of little restaurants to eat at. It was easy access to the zoo and sea world. We rented a suburban to fit our whole family and it was just a little too long to get the door closed in the garage. A mini van would have fit, I think. We loved our stay!

We had issues with the initial payment but the staff I talked with were very responsive and flexible. It was nice to be able to talk with someone on weekend even when I couldn't reach anyone at my bank.
The house was perfect for our family vacation needs. The kitchen was nicely stocked with needed utensils, pans, plates, etc which came in handy as we ate almost all meals at the house. The garage is tight for a full size sedan (Ford Taurus) but we made it work.
