House with a great location to Mission Beach! Charming! Quaint. If your coming from the East Coast, a little like Key West. Small car for parking but if you have a larger car it works out fine you just park away from house. This house is in a quiet neighborhood closer to the bay. It is better than the ocean side which is more crowded and loud. Beds are comfortable. All in all a nice stay.

This cozy and inviting cottage easily accommodated our family of 6. Location was fantastic for access both to the bay and the ocean, short and easy walk to both. Parking is very small, will need to park off-site if vehicle is larger than a compact car. Garage well stocked with bikes, beach toys, chairs, and even paddles boards. Suggest riding bikes or walking around the area. Close to multiples activities around San Diego. Host was easy to communicate with. Would book with this host again!

Great location! 3 short blocks walk to the ocean and a half a block walk to the bay side! The cottage is adorable, but more importantly it is clean and well equipped! Comes with beach chairs, boogie boards, skim board, beach toys, paddle boards and bikes. We used them all! Also is within walking distance to restaurants. Great place to stay!

Molly's place was just perfect for us. Literally steps to the sandy bay on one side and a two min walk to the beach on the other. Cottage had a great beach vibe and the deck was great to have coffee in the am and a cocktail before dinner while the kids played ball in the sand. Beach, chairs, paddleboards, bikes etc. We loved it!

A block to the bay or two blocks to the beach! It's the best of both worlds.

Great for couples traveling together or a family - the restaurants/bars/coffee shops in the area were great and it was close to the grocery stores, etc. if you want to stock the fridge. Molly was quick and easy to communicate with making for a seamless stay.

Great place; great manager. We really enjoyed our recent stay at Pismo Court, particularly in this Jewel Box of a home. Molly was great to work with. My advice, for anyone going to Mission Beach, is bring a small car. Parking is very tight and this home is no exception. Garage is great for bikes, boards, and toys - I found it easier to park my car at the park around corner (literally only 2 min walk away so no big deal). We can't wait to return! Thank you, Molly.
