This newly remodeled gem of a home located on the bayside in South Mission Beach. Only 300 yards to the ocean & 50 yards from the bay, this gorgeous location is quiet and peaceful. This 3 bed/2.5 bath has an outside shower & a 2-car over-sized garage! Amenities include A/C, washer/dryer, wine fridge, high-speed internet, private outdoor patio, and more! The home is beach ready, equipped with a beach wagon, beach chairs, umbrella, boogies boards, cooler and beach towels.

The space

The cottage welcomes you through a cozy outdoor patio with seating, an outdoor fire pit, and a grill inviting you to spend some quality time in the front yard this vacation. But when you do decide to retire, we have CENTRAL AC!

The open concept living room has comfortable seating and a 55" smart TV. It flows right into an amazing kitchen with a pass through bar with a wine fridge and bar seating. You can cook just about anything as it is well-appointed with an oven, gas range, microwave, dishwasher, large refrigerator, toaster, and coffee-maker!

There are three wonderfully appointed bedrooms. The "master bedroom" has an en-suite, a king-sized bed, and a 50" smart TV. The 2nd bedroom has a queen-sized bed and a 43" smart TV, while the 3rd bedroom has 2 twin bunk beds to sleep 4 kiddos (or adults) and another 43" smart TV. There is a full bathroom in the hallway that is shared between these bedrooms. There is another half bathroom off the kitchen for your convenience.

When you get back from the beach you can head down the west side of the home to find a private outdoor heated shower to wash off before you head into the house through a side-door off the kitchen (via a half-bathroom). If you do decide to leave the area, you can feel free to come and go as you please as parking is not an issue with a 2-car garage, which will accommodate a large car or SUV.

You will experience the charm of Mission Beach here! The houses all face each other across a sidewalk (hence the "Court" designation). You may see kids riding bikes to and from the boardwalk and bayside walk while friendly neighbors are outside grilling and chatting. You will also hear the ice-cream truck come by!"

Check In
This is a fantastic location! You are about two home lengths between the bay and a walk across the street to Mission Beach. Not only are you close to the beach, but if you need to get out to the grocery store, dinners, etc. it is in a great proximity to many great resturaunts - old town was only a 10 min drive. I'll never book a hotel again, this was amazing for my family and we appreciate the amazing hospitality by Aaron!

Just Wow! Everything about this place was incredible. The home is well stocked with everything you need for a perfect vacation including bikes and beach gear. It’s clean, fresh and decorated beautifully. The kitchen had everything big you’d need and they thought of every last detail including a step stool for the bathroom for my toddler to wash her hands in the sink. They really went above and beyond to make your stay easy and comfortable. I will be vacationing here again with my family. It is so close to the beach and bay and Belmont Park, such a fun family spot. Thank you for your wonderful hospitality!!

Very comfortable home in a great location. We loved that we could walk to either the bay or ocean side beaches super easily, as well as Belmont Park. We would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful home, close to the bay and beach, providing a relaxing atmosphere. Would love to come again, Thank you so much!

Great stay! We loved the coziness, location, service, cleanliness, and the hosts quick response times. Check in and check out were really easy, and the house was better than expected. Thank you !

this place is perfect! wish we could’ve stayed forever!

This is our 2nd time staying here.... and will come again next year! Very comfortable beds.... extremely hospitable and responsive host.

Cottage was perfect!

The owner is a very nice and welcoming person !! He made our stay wonderful !! The house is gorgeous, 50 meters to the ocean. The location is fabulous and the best! I advise everyone to this house! You will never regret it! I will definitely come back here and will advise all friends!

Great location for a beach getaway. Vacations By Aaron doesn’t miss a beat. Great outdoor gas fire pit.

We loved everything about this house. My wife and I stayed here for one week along with our four kids (18, 15, 13, 10). This house is about a one-minute walk from Bay beach, 4-minute walk to Pacific beach, and about 10 minutes to Belmont Park. The half bath really came in handy when the two other bathrooms were being occupied by someone taking a shower or getting ready. The washer/dryer in the garage along with all the beach toys (bikes, beach chairs, umbrellas) made this so easy. We drove about 10 minutes to Ralph's to stock up with groceries, but there were a couple of small markets a short walk away. The house is air-conditioned, which was an unexpected bonus on the one day when it got up to about 80 degrees. Our favorite activities were San Diego Zoo (12-minute drive), Comic Con/Gas Lamp Quarter (15-minute drive), and Torrey Pines Reserve hiking (25-minute drive). Awesome experience.

This beach bungalow was the perfect option for our stay in San Diego! Awesome location - no more than a 15-20 minute drive to get anywhere in the city (Petco Park, Zoo, USS Midway, Little Italy, Gaslamp, La Jolla, etc). And you definitely can’t beat the walking distance to both the beach and bay, as well as Belmont Park! Vacation Rentals by Aaron were always quick to respond and helped make our stay even more enjoyable! Definitely recommend staying here when visiting San Diego!

Loved this house and it’s location...very family friendly! It is so close to the bay, easy access to the ocean side of Mission Beach and just a short walk to Belmont park where we spent a lot of our time. We would definitely stay here again!

Loved the place. The gas fire pit was a major hit.

Beautiful home. Special outdoor space. Fantastic location- 1 short block to bay, 3 short blocks to ocean. Super clean, felt newly renovated and fresh! Entire family loved the house.

Great place, wonderful location, communicative host!

This little house is very cute with an unbeatable location. Two minutes walk to mission beach. I had trouble finding and getting in the property and the host responded super fast to help me out. Clean house with everything you need, even bikes and kid toys in the garage. Will definitely recommend.

You cannot beat this location. Steps to the beach. Bars. Restaurants. Minutes from the airport. Lively and fun part of town. Great neighbors we had a chance to chat with. Very quiet at night, loud parties will not be tolerated.

I can't say enough about this place. We loved everything about the it! The bedrooms were perfect for our family. We loved sitting outside by the firepit and cooking on the grill. The kitchen appliances were nice and the kitchen was stocked well. The garage fit our Minivan and SUV! Love this place! We are already looking forward to next year!

Our favorite Airbnb to date! Beautiful, clean and had everything you need. The location is perfect too for families. Can’t wait to go back.

Great house. We fit two families with two cars. We loved our stay and the closeness of the beach and bay. It was the relaxing vacation we were hoping for. The beds are super comfy. The kids loved the bunk beds. House has all you need including toys, boogie boards, and a wagon. Next time I am going to pack lighter knowing they have everything there. Getting in and out of the garage can be tricky if you have big cars but it’s manageable. Bonus is you are in the best spot....we barely took the cars out. Belmont park and restaurants are walking close. Great place great trip!

Fabulous, comfortable and spacious. Close to the beach and steps from the bay. Had everything we needed for lazy beach days. We enjoyed the fire pit and lovely porch.

This beach house is a lot more roomy than it looks and has been recently renovated. Sparkly clean and inviting! You really cant go wrong with this rental! Aaron was super responsive. We just got home and my family is already asking when we can go back! Thanks so much for making our vacation GREAT!

Great home with an excellent location to bay & ocean. My kids loved being able to walk right over to the beach. Aaron & Betsy were very easy and pleasant to deal with. They responded to my needs very quickly. They also provided a beautiful bottle of wine which I thought was a nice touch!

the place is better than expected. the host was quick to reply but the house had everything we needed and the instruction was clear so there was not much need for communication. highly recommended for bigger groups!

Aaron and Betsy were wonderful! The house was fully stocked and had all the amenities we needed. In addition, they were so kind and allowed us to have a late check out and were really accommodating in allowing us to drop our bags of early before check in. We had a slight issue getting the garage open but they were so quick to respond and fixed the issue immediately! I would definitely recommend!

Great location both to the Bay and the beach. Love the two car garage. Amazing patio. This place is perfect for a family. We stayed there 6 glorious days. Aaron reallyKNOWS how to put together a vacation home. Betsy is GREAT at being welcoming.

The beach bungalow was in a great location both to the Bay and the beach. We also enjoyed the walk to Belmont Park. The house accommodated us nicely.

Aaron’s place was outstanding. We stayed for two weeks and cannot say enough about it. They were quick to respond to us. You can’t beat the location. The two car garage and patio were quite the treat, especially for Mission Bay!

Amazing place! Clean with every detail well organized!

This property is well stocked, awesome location in San Diego, nicely decorated. Definately recommended!

Great location, amazing patio and clean house. Couldn’t be happier with our stay

Perfect place for a vacation in Mission Beach! Great location, wonderful bungalow updated throughout. It feels like a model home! It is a great space for two families, comfortable beds, and spacious common area. Very clean and comfortable. Loved everything about it. Highly recommended!

Aaron was great to deal with-- quick communication and very welcoming. House is exactly what we hoped for and a great place to relax. Quiet location with a close walk to places. Would definitely recommend to others. Thanks Aaron!

Aside from being in a great location on a quiet court, this home was a spectacular place to stay. Perfect for families with children. Adorable quaint cottage appearance but brand new! Homeowner/property manager were so easy to work with and cared greatly about our stay. We will definitely rent here in the future!

House was very beautiful. Our family had such a relaxing time and the house had everything we look for in a rental. Location was amazing. I would definitely rent again.

Great location and beautiful house! Steps to the sand and a nice quiet neighborhood with a handful of restaurants and bars super close by!

Was a great place to stay for the week. Clean, and quick communication.

Great place in a great location! Loved our entire week. Time spent both at the beach and exploring San Diego. House was clean with modern updates and nice amenities (e.g. firepit, tvs, beach stuff, outdoor shower, etc..). Kids loved the bunk beds. Communication was excellent. Recommended.

Exceeded my expectations by far. This house was absolutely beautiful and the location was perfect.

Beautiful place walks from the beach and bay. Such a nice location!!

Great location! Great space. We had two families of 4 stay here and I worried we would feel cramped. The kids all shared one room and we had plenty of space in the living area. Quick response to any questions we had. Walking distance to restaurants, stores and of course water and beaches. We had a full size SUV that did barely made it in the garage.

This was a great property. Steps from Mission Bay and steps from Mission Beach. The location is perfect. Upon arrival we had a complimentary bottle of red wine waiting for us and a list of the best eats and activities near by. The property includes a gas fire pit in the front (We wrapped up each night here) and an out door shower along with three bedrooms and three bathrooms. The kitchen is clean and well appointed. Parking is in a private attached garage. We dealt with Betsy of Aaron’s Vacation Rentals and I can’t praise her enough for her communication and professionalism. If you’re going to San Diego for a family trip. This is the place for you!

Lovely house! Close walk to beach in two directions. Really nice host and quick answers to all questions. Would recommend this house 24/7.

Pros: Overall, nice space and location on Mission Beach. - photos don't do justice - the patio area is very nice. Was first worried that we wouldn't have enough privacy in the patio space. The patio looks like the front door but you almost use the space as your private back yard. - Very nice space for babies. Having no stairs and newer flooring was good. Wasn't very helpful on renting baby toys but there are vendors close by with a (Hidden by Airbnb) search. - All appliances are very nice and plus access to Netflix. Cons: - Please note the house doesn't have enough natural lighting as it is between houses. But lots of sunshine on your patio! - My issue was with cleaning - I checked with the owners on whether they clean their floor before arrival or as part of their cleaning service because our 11 month old still crawls. Our feet got dirty really quick as soon as we entered. Owner never offered to give us another cleaning - took care of it myself. - Another issue with cleaning - when we tried washing the bed sheets, we found string cheese wrappers, used tissue papers, and it was just gross. Took care of it myself. Need more attention to details when cleaning. - If you're coming in May or sometime soon, the area is very loud with construction going on. The house was shaking literally during the day. But hopefully you have more time outside - we were looking for more peace and quiet in the house as we were traveling with a baby.

The home was lovely! The location was perfect. Betsy was very sweet checking on us and responsive with any questions.

We had a very memorable vacation at 819 Dover Court! The host is very responsive; and the home is very clean and super cute with modern/updated decor — it had everything we needed for our stay. The wagon was perfect for hauling items to/from the beach (including beach chairs, sand toys and an umbrella also provided by the host!). The courtyard/patio area was spacious and perfect for eating outdoors and then enjoying s’mores around the fire pit! The neighborhood is quiet (with friendly neighbors!), and the home is within a couple min. walking distance of several restaurants, a market and a coffee shop. Also within easy walking distance of Belmont Park and several other restaurants and shops. And, the best part, the bay was super close (only a couple houses away!) and the beach was a very short walk across the street! We were traveling with a baby, and it was so convenient that a high chair was provided. If traveling with multiple children, the only “issue” is that a standard pack ‘n’ play does not fit in the second bedroom — instead, we had to put it in the master bedroom (since our other children were sleeping in the room with bunk beds - otherwise, it could have fit in that room also). Having a large enough parking spot was a “must” for us when choosing a home for our stay — it was rare to find a home like this that came with a private garage big enough to fit an SUV. The alley is VERY tight for turning into the garage, but the space was indeed big enough to fit a large SUV. We would highly recommend 819 Dover Court for a beach vacation — the home itself is great and the location can’t be beat!! It was a perfect family beach vacation and so fun to be able to take the kids to the beach to splash in the waves and build sand castles, and then the bay to see the boats and collect sea shells (and watch volleyball players compete on the sand courts)! Not sure if there are restrictions on the number of people who can stay in the home, but it could very comfortably accommodate two families - especially if traveling with children who are a little older since the one room sleeps four with the bunk beds and the space has two full bathrooms and then a half bathroom in the common space (plus an outdoor shower!). We will carry lots of great memories from our stay, and we hope to return for another Mission Beach vacation in the future!

Great home, tastefully updated with all the amenities; quiet neighborhood conveniently located between beach & bay and easy walk to park, cafes & grocery. Highly recommend this home.

This house is amazing and was just perfect for our family, it’s beautifully updated with an amazing kitchen and patio with a cozy gas fire pit that was used every night! We appreciates the AC with putting the baby to sleep early in a cool house, the beds were comfy and the beach supplies were the best! You cannot beat the location it is perfect walking distance to Belmont Park, ocean waves and bayside...yet still some privacy as you’re not on the boardwalk! The host was great and we have nothing but positive things to say about this stay...we will absolutely be coming back to stay at this house! Thanks for the Home away from home:)

Amazing location between the beach and the bay. Seconds away from both. This is a special house! Newly remodeled and amazing amenities. We will be back!

This home is wonderful for families of 6, especially if you have young ones that don't mind sleeping in the same room. The amenities were plenty, we found everything we needed in the kitchen, which is not always the case in a rental. The house is on a quaint street and the neighbors vacationing or home for the summer were friendly. The walk to the bay was so close, it was easy to take chairs down, to enjoy the still waters. Make sure to shuffle your feet, we saw a few stingrays. The beach is just a little further but still close enough to hall a load down to play in the surf. Air conditioning was a huge plus in this rental. While the beach can be cool, the breeze doesn't flow through this home. During the day the temperature was fine but we needed it at night. There is a small market, Mexican, and Italian restaurant just around the corner. The market is convenient but like most local beach stores, it was pricey. We enjoyed the Mexican food for the most part, but if you like carnitas, DO NOT order them here. The Italian restaurant across Mission Bay Ave. was fine, not gourmet for sure. There are electric scooters for rent all over Mission Beach but be forewarned you must be 18 and also wear a helmet. They are so much fun and worth riding but the police patrol the area and you don't want to end up with a $400 fine. Belmont Park is walking distance, we went there a couple of times. Escapology (the escape room) was so fun but pricey at $40 a person for one hour, worth the cost. There is no table inside the house so I wouldn't plan a trip here in cold weather unless you have four and want to eat at the breakfast bar on barstools or on your lap in the living room. The fire pit outside was used everyday, it's was nice in the morning and night. The furniture inside was comfortable but only really seats four comfortably. There are bikes, boogie boards, chairs, and other beach amenities available. All and all we loved our trip and didn't want to leave. We would recommend staying here to every one!

House is amazing! Perfect for a family with kids. Great location.

Very nice and responsive host. Awesome beach and bay access location. Quiet. Incredibly stocked with beach gear: two bikes, chairs, float toys, towels, sweet outside private shower. Killer air conditioner. Comfy beds.

Great house, great location, great for families and all ages!! Can't wait to come back to Mission Beach!!

Teenagers paradise (4 high quality flatscreens, fast WiFi, Netflix, etc.). Parents appreciate details as even an additional wine refrigerator and the spacy home. Noise-sensitive persons should however consider that airplanes are taking off right over South Mission Beach frequently.

Great place, grrat host,wonderful time there!

A beautifully appointed beach house on a quiet lane in busy Mission Beach. So many extra touches making the stay terrific: plenty of beach equipment, beach towels, chairs, wagon, & boogie boards! It was great having a two car garage with washer dryer with detergent and stain remover. The patio was our favorite place to congregate! We had a lovely barbecue dinner for six our first night, then visited by the fire the rest of the evening. Also, having 2.5 baths in the house is super as well as the outside shower for returning from the beach! Everything one needs for a family or group to have a wonderful time in San Diego is out this cool bungalow!

Amazing location--one minute walk to the beach on the bay and less than 5 minute walk to the ocean. Super convenient. Also walking distance to the Belmont area with shops and restaurants. Newly remodeled with great design and finishing touches. We had 8 people and it slept all of us comfortably. Great front porch area with barbecue and firepit for making s'mores.

This place was perfect for our family of five. The bunk bed room was a big hit with our two older kids & the youngest had his own room at the front of the house. We liked that the master BR & bathroom are at the back of the house, near the garage and separated slightly from the other two BRs. The kitchen has really nice appliances and the furniture in the living room is both modern and comfortable. This house is really well-stocked with essentials (toilet paper, hand soap, dish detergent, trash bags, towels, etc) as well as extras like coffee filters, body wash, shampoo, and lots of beach gear. We really appreciated all the little things this house provides for guests! The location of this house (in South Mission Beach) is central to all the best parts of San Diego— easy drive to La Jolla, Point Loma/OB/Sunset Cliffs, the SD Zoo/Balboa Park, the Gaslamp, and of course super close to PB. We alternated our days between taking the car to different spots & exploring close by the house- walking to the beach, Belmont Park (love the roller coaster!), and around the Bay. We ate most of our meals on the fabulous patio and enjoyed using the grill with 70 degree temps to keep us cool. The list of restaurants on the side of the fridge was also helpful. We truly loved our vacation and highly recommend this rental!!
