We just spent a fantastic five day vacation at the Mission Bay hideaway over the Memorial Day weekend. Our family of five fit nicely by using the futon and air mattress made available to us at the home...The location is perfect because we are steps away from Mission Bay and a quick walk across the street and through an alleyway took us to Mission Beach...we also enjoyed having access to the boogie boards and the bicycles available at the property. The Ralph's grocery store is within a 10 minute walk...every kind of restaurant you can imagine is also within walking distance from this location....overall, this was a great place to stay... we would love to come back ...Thank you Mr. Eckert for your hospitality....
We really enjoyed our stay at Mission Bay Hideaway. Bill and Calina were available quickly if we needed them, but otherwise left us to enjoy our time there. The house is so close to the bay and beach, and had everything we needed. The beach equipment was especially nice - our boys LOVED the paddle board! Thanks for sharing your rental with us, we didn’t want to leave!
This is our second time with Bill and Calina. They have everything you could want or need at your disposal. One block to the ocean in one direction and a block to the bay in the other direction, perfect. More important is the fact that you have a parking spot available to you at all tones which is vital down at Mission Beach! We will be coming back again!
We loved staying at Mission Bay Hideaway! It was a perfect location, a few minute walk to the bay or the beach, close to coffee shops and cafes, but no noise from traffic or airport. It was amazing. Bill was super friendly and easy to work with both in booking and while we were staying at the MBH. We would highly recommend staying here - we traveled with an infant and a toddler, and found it to be a great setup for us!
Located between the bay and the Pacific Ocean, this cute, roomy apartment on a quiet block was perfect for us. The amenities (kayak, grill, plenty of clean linens, kitchenware, etc.) were really helpful. We felt right at home!
Perfect family vaca location. 5min to Sea World, 15min to downtown, airport, and Balboa Park (zoo, museums), 50ft to bay, 1 block to beach. Loved having sea kayak, boogie boards and bikes, etc available to use. Huge plus vs. rentals. We cooked most meals, but great restaurants w/in walking distance. Place was cute and baths, linens, etc. very clean. To be very picky, the place could use some better pots and pans and a maybe good cleaning on things like ceiling fans, but these were very minor things. We thought this place was a great value and a great jumping off point for our vacation. The owner was very nice accommodating. Would stay here again.
Loved access to all the beach toys, bikes, boogie boards. Uber’d Everywhere. No car needed. Comfy beds. Plenty of space for family of 4 for a few days. Great location for a vacation
This property was exactly as advertised. The beds were comfortable, it was clean, nicely furnished and perfect for a small family. We stayed here for a full week as we were in town for a family wedding and did not want to stay at the hotel where the wedding festivities were being held. Maybe the one small issue would be that the signage numbers for the address could be easily missed if one is not carefully looking. But this alone should not discourage anyone from renting this property.
We stayed in Bill and Cathy Eckert's Mission Bay Hideaway for 6 weeks this winter and found it to be absolutely ideal for a longer term rental. The location is super, located 1/2 block from Mission Bay and 1 short block from the ocean (Mission Beach). The apartment itself is completely self sufficient with 2 bedrooms, comfortable queen bed in one and twins in the other room, 2 nice sized bathrooms with good showers and a tub, and a fully stocked kitchen. The living area has a large smart tv and a gas fireplace to take the chill out of early mornings when the weather isn't perfect. The place was spotlessly clean when we arrived, with nice towels and sheets all in place and spares available as needed. All the "toys" anyone needs for a fun stay are also available: 4 bikes, good beach chairs, boogey boards, even a double kayak and rolling cooker. And very importantly, there's a parking spot specifically for this rental, which is unusual and so necessary! Bill and Cathy are friendly, very helpful hosts who took care of any issues immediately (just things like batteries for the remote) and were always available via text to answer questions about dining options etc.; they even made arrangements for us to have a special tour of the Midway aircraft carrier (docked permanently in San Diego) when they heard that had been my husband's ship 40 years ago. We could not have asked for a better place to escape our midwest winter. We recommend it most highly and hope we'll be able to visit again next year!
We loved our time at Mission Bay Hideaway! The cottage was extremely well appointed, walking distance to a grocery store and restaurants and the beach and bay areas were 2 minutes walk! Check out the live music from 6:00 to 9:00 at the Catamaran Hotel which is a short walk on the bay. Our host Bill met us on arrival and was very accommodating. Dog friendly and comfortable, we will definitely be back!
