This beach front vacation rentals suits vacationers who want a low key vacation on the beach bayside.

The very nature of the bayside lends itself to a more mindful experience of the beach.  Its only 150 steps to the mighty Pacific Ocean, but worlds apart in its beach experience.  Many returning vacationers prefer the bayside to the ocean front due to the quietness of the nighttime for sleeping.  Even in the daytime, the bayside has far less foot traffic than the ocean front board walk.  They are two different worlds.

Your comfort and enjoyment always in mind.
We pay attention to details in providing for your rental needs. This lovely one bedroom is decorated with bright colorful shades to reflect our amazing weather and climate to remind you that you are on vacation in San Diego.

*****Bayside is quiet by its very nature.  Our group of vacation rentals, are no exception to that type of experience.  We offer a low key environment for your stay at the beach bayside.  
For our rentals, we do not allow gatherings or parties in order to keep that low key vacation experience for our area.

Feel free to call and ask about The Kingfisher or one of our other lovely beach properties.  We can find the right rental for your vacation needs in San Diego at Mission Beach.

Spectacular, comfortable, a must stay property!

Date of Stay:

Spectacular, comfortable, a must 'stay property'! 5/5 Stayed Dec 2018 Claudia C. This is a five star review at every level. The property is exactly as pictured on their web site. In all honesty, it is even better than pictured! The views of the bay from the living room and kitchen are spectacular any time of the day. We watched sunrise from the comfort of the couch or out on the patio each morning. We took a two minute walk each evening to the ocean side to enjoy sunset and all the activity that comes with life on the ocean side. There is everything one needs to prepare meals at home. The shower is great--come on now, you know that is important. The property is spotless-whether you are in the kitchen, bedrooms, bathrooms, living room or even on the patio. Another important feature is location, location location. There are restaurants, bakeries, coffee houses and bike/scooter rental stores all in walking distance from the property. We were within a 25 minute drive from any major attraction. The property manager, Cyndi is great. She was most helpful with the entire rental process. She met us as we drove up to the property on the first day. She lives nearby but she is a hands off manager-only there when needed. Going back home feeling refreshed, energized and counting the days until next year. We are already planning our return trip for December of 2019! Submitted Dec 18, 2018

Much Needed Relaxation

Date of Stay:

Much needed relaxation. ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ This property was just what we needed after retirement (for me) and end of semester responsibilities (for him). Loved the kitchen with quality appliances including a five-burner gas range and oven. Beautiful granite counter tops! We were close enough to walk to Belmont to rent bikes, which we rode all the way around to Crowne Point. Three times. Unit is walking distance to Olive Cafe and Bakery, Miss B's, Oceana and Ralph's (if you don't buy too much). We appreciated the Samsung TV and caught some of the football between Christmas and New Year. We wished for a tub after our long bike rides, but otherwise we found this unit to be adequate in every way. Thanks so much for all the attention to our needs. It was a great stay!!! Date of arrival December 20, 2017

Perfect spot for Family

Date of Stay:

Perfect Spot for Family ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ We had a wonderful time staying here for 4 nights. My wife and I, along with out 1 year old were in one apartment, and my parents were in an adjacent apartment. Everything was very clean and just as described. Cyndi was wonderful and incredibly responsive. Coffee shops, restaurants, and bakeries all are within walking distance. It was very quiet at night (granted we stayed in December), which was important for us with a light sleeping toddler. We really enjoyed having coffee every morning overlooking the bay. We hope to come back again! Date of arrival December 15, 2016

Perfect Location and Beach rental

Date of Stay:

Perfect location and Beach Rental We travel a lot so we know what we like. The manager Cyndi from the start was great to work with. The home was clean and in good condition, which is a must for my wife. The rental home was in good order and the area was quiet I loved the location and it was just as described. We will stay with this manager when we come back.

Absolute Gem

Date of Stay:

Meagan said... Feb 19, 2016 Absolute GEM!3538 Bayside Walk, San Diego, CA, 92109, United States Date of Stay Feb 9, 2016 This condo is awesome! So awesome, I hesitate to write this review in fear it will become too popular!!! Our experience started with our relationship with Cyndi, the owner, who was incredible. She was patient with all of our questions and our need to have this be perfect for our young family. Also, during our trip, Cyndi responded to emails, within minutes (!), and answered any questions we had. Once we arrived, we realized what a gem we had found! The condo itself is incredibly clean and the furnishings were not only comfortable and usable, but looked like the perfect beach house! We have two children (5 & 8) and they loved their room with the single beds as much as we enjoyed our king sized bed! The view to the bay right out the door was beautiful and we ate every single meal on the deck, watching the people stroll and ride their bikes by. When we wanted, we strolled over to the pacific beach side (literally a 5 minute meander) and took in the gorgeous waves and sea breeze. We found lots of restaurants and shops close by, but to be honest, the place was so awesome that we literally stayed "home" nearly the entire week. The only tiny downside to this property was the shower was tricky for our children - it was not a tub (which would have especially been easier for our youngest) but it was also at a bit of a weird angle, so it was difficult to help the children wash up (particularly their hair) without just getting in with them. However, this was nothing compared to all the great things about it! We will absolutely be coming back - it is just a matter of when! And, we saw that Cyndi rents out other condo directly beside or nearly beside the Kingfisher, so we are thinking of having a few families come down together! We highly recommend this spot, especially for young families and older couples who want the proximity of the ocean but not the busyness. Recommended for: Families with Young Children, Girls Getaway, Tourists without a Car, Age 55+, Romantic Getaway. My Response This family is just a good hearted, grateful group. From the moment they arrived they were so excited and the kids were wide eyed about the beach and having a great time. They were delightful to work with and it was a pleasure to offer them this great place to stay. I have said it many times over the 25 years, but having such pleasurable people grace our vacation rentals is what makes all the hard work and the 24/7 hours worth it. The Kingfisher is a great place and the beach front location is the best. I look forward to having them and their friends come again any time. We love our neighbors to the North.

Thanksgiving 2016 Vacation

Date of Stay:

Thanksgiving 2016 Vacation3538 Bayside Walk, San Diego, CA, 92109, United States Date of Stay Nov 17, 2016 Stayed the week of Thanksgiving and had a fantastic vacation! We absolutely love San Diego and would return to this condo! Cynthia was very pleasant and easy to deal with throughout the entire process. The unit was spotless and comforting and in a great quiet area right on the sand. Mission and Pacific beaches are packed with restaurants, nightlife and places to shop. I would recommend Better Buzz right around the corner for coffee and a light breakfast. Can't wait to return! My Response Thank you so much for your great review of the property and I loved both meeting you and your family and having you come stay. You were wonderful. I so glad you were so happy and had a great experience, both at The Royal Tern and San Diego. Your happy visit, is my goal, and I would welcome your family back any time. Please keep us in mind for any future visit. Families like yours make my work, not work at all. Best to you Cyndi Edit your Response

A wonderful get-away on the bay

Date of Stay:

A wonderful get-away on the bay3538 Bayside Walk, San Diego, CA, 92109, United States Date of Stay Dec 14, 2016 Loved this condo which was right on the bay with a patio to enjoy the view. Also a very short walk to the ocean side to watch the surfers and the sure you walk out on the pier, where we saw a school of dolphins frolicking for about 20 minutes. The kitchen was very well appointed, the beds comfortable and Cynthia made sure everything was perfect for us. She gave us a quick primer on how to get essentials - coffee and groceries. She went above and beyond and had someone there in minutes when our one year old grandson shut the door, locking us out of our unit our first evening there! Thank you Cynthia!! My Response Thank you, Thank you for your wonderful and kind review. We loved having you and you all were such respectful and kind guests. So happy you had a great time visiting our coast. Great suggestion to walk up to the pier. We are blessed in San Diego at Mission Beach, to have non stop and endless easy and wonderfully delightful things to do, right here. Please come again anytime. Best Regards Cyndi

No surprises here!

Date of Stay:

Ann M. said... Dec 29, 2016 No surprises here3538 Bayside Walk, San Diego, CA, 92109, United States Date of Stay Dec 20, 2016 Helpful votes: 0/0 We just returned to Michigan from our Christmas visit in San Diego. If you review the website on this property you will know everything you need to know. The photos look just like the actual unit. No hidden surprises and Cynthia has thought of everything you could need. However, if you do have a question, or need to contact her, she is very good about responding quickly. This property is in a quiet residential area. Literally just out the blue gate is the Mission Bay boardwalk, and a nice sandy beach. Mission Beach is just about a block away and also has an oceanside boardwalk. Both are clean and well kept beach areas that are great for bike riding, running or just a leisurely stroll. The unit is clean and well maintained the kitchen was well equipped and there is also a stackable washer dryer that you can use during your stay. Towels and linens are included with the unit. Our college age daughter joined us for the visit and the unit worked out perfectly. Parking is tight so take her recommendations concerning the vehicle or plan to park just a little further down in guest/oversize parking. Belmont park is within walking distance along with a few local eateries. So much to see and do in the area. This is the perfect base to enjoy San Diego from, whether you have little ones who just want to play in the sand or you want to explore all that San Diego has to offer. My Response Thank you for the great review. It was a pleasure to have you and your family. It warms my heart and fills my well, to know that your vacation was all you had hoped and that The Kingfisher too was exactly as you had rented. Its always my goal to see that you have the experience that I present in the advertisement on HomeAway. Your midwest graciousness shines through. Thank you again, and please come again to any one of our rentals. Best to you and yours Cyn
