Absolutely beautiful and so accommodating. by Tami Shannon 04/07/2014
Absolutely beautiful and so accommodating. This penthouse took our breathe away and was by the beach like we had wanted...closer than we truly thought. The neighbor was peaceful and truly there is not the perfect word for how wonderful this penthouse was for our trip. My son graduated from the Marines is why we stayed and his comment was "Mom it feels like we are really rich, this is so awesome!" and he is 18. We had 12 people and we all were so very comfortable and no crowding. The house came with everything we needed, even beach toys for the kids, that it made it so much easier on us for packing and luggage. I really can't wait to come back!! Thank you
This house is absolutely amazing! by Jessie Struebing 03/21/2014
This house is absolutely amazing! A 30 second walk the teach. Giant windows that can be opened up to create an open air atmosphere. Huge pluses are the grill, laundry, fully-stocked kitchen, and endless patios. I have no problem recommending this place to anyone!!!
WOW! by Edie May Morgan 03/06/2014
WOW! I was looking for a place to accommodate ALL my siblings and their kids. This was the perfect place. We ranged from 3 years to 60. There was fun for everyone. Walking to the beach past the volleyball courts, walk to the Bay for the kids that don't like waves, sitting on the bar stools and watching the Jetty action. We had such an amazing time! We ran on the boardwalk, rented surfing / paddle boats / bikes, headed to sea world, padres game, shopping, eatingetc. It was what we still call the PEFRECT trip. To have all my 7 siblings there was such a treat. We just gave each family member a room to call their own. During the stay we had an issue with the fridge leaking and they were there within the hour and took care of the problem. We also had a blow up bed go flat and multiple were brought before bed time. They were so great to work with! The only funny thing that happened, that has nothing to do with this place, was we got a parking ticket because we parked on the street the day that they sweep because of all the sand. So we moved our car to the other side and the next morning that side was swept so we got another ticket! BUMMER! We couldn't fit all the family cares under the garage but there is public parking right by the beach that we ended up leaving our car at and not playing tag with the street sweeper. There is so much to do in San Diego and for an extended family that had never been before, this fit all our needs. The kids loved it, the teenagers loved it, and the adults loved it. It was a once in a life time opportunity for me to get all my family together so we went big and this place was amazing. I hope you have as much fun making memories with your family as we did with ours!
I brought my children and their children to this wonderful house in February. by Judi Hewitt 02/24/2014
I brought my children and their children to this wonderful house in February. We had a total of 5 adults and 6 children, and has plenty of space for everyone. We were at the house for 7 days, and walked almost everywhere. Redondo Beach, with the wooden roller coaster is a 5 minute drive. The San Diego Zoo, LaJolla tide pools, the Birch Aquarium are all just a few minutes away. The floor-to-ceiling windows in the living room and the three balconies all have fabulous views of the water, with boats, kayaks, paddle boards, etc. passing by. We saw dolphins on two different occasions, which was a thrill for the Montana kids! We also spent two days playing on the beach and in the water. In February! We absolutely will try to come back to this house.
These accommodations were fantastic for family trip of 20 people to California for our son's wedding. by Marie Kerber 12/06/2013
These accommodations were fantastic for family trip of 20 people to California for our son's wedding. We had all age groups from newborn to mid 80s in our party. The view takes your breath away when your arrive for your stay. Then discovering all the activities in the area kept us busy in our time off wedding activities. Beach and parks right out the door for everyone. Airport, Sea World, zoo, and shopping within a short distance. The living room in the larger unit was large enough to cater a sit down rehearsal dinner of 40-50 guests. The rental agents were fantastic in helping us learn about the area and giving us information we needed. It was a totally fantastic stay and we are talking about going back for one of the holidays with more of the family in the near future.
We rented both sides of the condo and had the entire 4th floor of the building. by John Karren 11/30/2013
We rented both sides of the condo and had the entire 4th floor of the building. It was an amazing location and incredible views from any room in the place. We loved the location as it was on the far end of Mission Beach. We rented bikes for the week which was $50 a week for each bike and we had complete access to everywhere by bikes or walking, each condo had 2 spaces for parking and it was behind a garage door so access, security and safety was perfect and we didn't have to park on the road. We were right next to volleyball courts, the beach path, surfing and minutes from the Mission Beach night life. Inside, we loved the condo! great kitchen area, great hanging out area, tons of sleeping for everyone. This wasn't like the normal rentals where they tell you its sleeps a ton of people and you have to cram everyone in beds, we had more beds than the amount of people we planned for and it was awesome. I had 14 people and we were there for a business conference and no one wanted to go to the conference cause our house was so nice, peaceful and relaxing. Being right on the beach you could hear the waves crashing with the sliding balcony doors open, being at the end of the street it was quiet and not much traffic We loved it and would go back and rent the same place, it was fantastic!
My family got together in Sept and were thrilled to discover that the Luxury Penthouse was just as advertised and more. by Barbara Sand 09/17/2013
My family got together in Sept and were thrilled to discover that the Luxury Penthouse was just as advertised and more. We had ample room for everyone. Everyone was comfortable, it was clean and everything worked. We spent so much time just looking out the panoramic windows because the bay was so busy and interesting. The beach was great and we were pleased to see there were beach chairs and towels. Kitchen and laundry were stocked with what we needed. And the gift package was so appreciated. Thank you for everything.
Great views, great location, nicely appointed functional units. by Ed Deely 07/20/2013
Great views, great location, nicely appointed functional units. We were there for a family reunion/wedding so EVERYONE was there. The family rented both units and utilized every square inch. Hosted dinner for 60 one night. We would congregate and watch the sunset at night from the deck and living room, then Sea World's fireworks from the patio/walkway. We would watch fishing boats head out to sea in the morning. Walkable to food, fun, bay and beach. Highly recommend it!!
This property exceeded our expectations of a vacation get away. by Sharon (Tucson, AZ) 07/05/2013
This property exceeded our expectations of a vacation get away. The views were amazing at all hours of the day and provided a serene environment. Having more than adequate parking was an added bonus to the vacation experience the property provided. The home had everything needed to make your stay an enjoyable experience and it was clean and well-maintained. We are already planning to come back again next year!
A single mother of four and grandma to one, 46-year-old Maria has been battling breast cancer when -- despite multiple chemotherapy threatments -- she developed brain metastasis as well. by Dream Foundation 04/29/2013
"A single mother of four and grandma to one, 46-year-old Maria has been battling breast cancer when -- despite multiple chemotherapy threatments -- she developed brain metastasis as well. Devoted to her family, Maria worked tirelessly to make sure their days and routines were as normal as possible. Her one dream was for a special getaway full of happy moments and the opportunity to ignite her children's passion for creativity by showing them a new city and wild animals from around the world. They enjoyed several relaxing days by the ocean, thanks to Dana Horne Vacation Rentals, and fun outings to SeaWorld San Diego and San Diego Zoo. Her favorite part of the trip was watching her children enjoy themselves and getting a break from her treatment. Maria said, 'Thank you for giving us so much. It was the chance to be free from hospitals and to leave memories for my children.'" "Lions and Tigers and Bears!" The Dream Foundation Newsletter. Vol 1. From the Heart (2013): Page 10. Print.

We are so glad that we could help provide a moment's solice for Maria and her family. Our thoughts and prayers are with them during this difficult time. Thank you to the Dream Foundation for allowing us to help families find some quiet time together.
Perfect! by Jean (Montana) 02/15/2013
We were delighted the minute we walked in the door of this spacious condo! The windows in the living area facing south and west are views into the beautiful world of the bay and the ocean with the privacy of being on the upper floor. It was a wonderful space to gather to visit or watch the seals, birds and boats coming and going. Plenty of chairs for relaxing and a dining table to accommodate us all.
There were nine of us in attendance and we had ample comfortable sleeping arrangements in the four bedrooms. We found the space well supplied with everything from towels to kitchen necessities.
The condo is located at the end of the street with covered off-street parking--a big plus in such a congested area. There is easy access to the beach as well as some restaurants within walking distance. There are a plethora of eating establishments and shops within short driving distance without ever having to leave the area.
Thanks for a wonderful home away from home!
This property was truly amazing! by Susan (Idalia) 01/24/2013
This property was truly amazing! The location was just perfect; it provided us with a great location right next to the beach. We loved all the big windows that offered panoramic views of the ocean. The owners were very accommodating and were always available to answer any questions. Our propane bottle ran out of propane and they came immediately with a replacement. The kitchen was great and had everything we needed.
Great Luxury location with Fantastic View by Sun Seeker (New York) 01/06/2013
Great Luxury location with Fantastic View
This listing was extremely accurate in all details, as well as the pictures. This was one of my best vacations to San Diego. The Penthouse came with all the amenities to make the vacation that much more enjoyable. The property was very clean and well maintained. The underground parking was a big plus,as well. Watching the sunset every night was one of the most enjoyables memories of the trip. I would recommend this property to all freinds and relatives and plan to return again soon.
I am very particilular when I stay at a hotel, and this property surpassed my expectations. Thanks for doing such great job on the many details.
Gorgeous Penthouse in Mission Beach -- great views, wonderful accommodations, great service! by Diane (Peoria, AZ) 10/25/2012
Gorgeous Penthouse in Mission Beach -- great views, wonderful accommodations, great service!
This Penthouse was even better in person than the pictures. We all loved the panoramic windows overlooking the water. And, almost every room in the house had a fantastic view of Mission Beach. The house was well stocked with kitchen supplies, linens, just about anything we were looking for (even a couple of batteries that we needed). I can't say enough good things about this property. It really made our Bridal shower very special to have all of our friends be able to stay under one roof. In San Diego, it seems that everything is at most a 20 minute drive away. This location was very convenient for us. The only negatives that I can think of is that it is difficult to find (especially at night) and the front door keypad wasn't working (but we used the garage keypad, so we were never locked out). When we plan our next San Diego get-away, this property will definitely be high on our list of places to stay. We loved it!
Wonderful Family Vacation! by Zircons (Salem, MA 01970) 04/15/2012
Wonderful Family Vacation!

Everything everyone else has written is true. There were 11 of us and we were not crowded. Every evening between 5 and 8 we could watch the dolphins, seals, pelicans and fishing boats, kayaks, etc. It was just fun to watch. Plenty of towels and china to use for all of us. Our only problem was that the elevator was broken for at least six days and it was hard schlepping our stuff up and down the stairs. Have already recommended to families who want to go on vacation in big parties.
This condo was fantastic, even better than we had imagined from the website. by Family Reunion (Northbrook IL) 03/22/2012
This condo was fantastic, even better than we had imagined from the website. The minute we walked in we were amazed at the view from each window. Every day we would see who could spot more seals, dolphins, pelicans diving, people crewing, surfing, and boating. It was so relaxing just sitting and watching our very own "Sea World". As we were directly on the beach, we could play in the sand, jump in the waves, walk along the jetty and then be back home without having to drive anywhere. The apartment amenities were wonderful: spacious family sitting area, well equipped kitchen with laundry facilities, beds for 12, plus pack and play, a blow up mattress, highchairs, gas grill , 2 parking spaces, tons of towels, etc. Everything you could possibly need. We were able to hop over to Sea World within minutes (did that 2 days), the zoo was about 20 minutes away, & Legoland took about 45 minutes. (suggestion: We bought a 7 day unlimited pass from Costco that covered all but Legoland at a great savings.). We went to the Seal Beach in La Jolla ( 20 mins away) and watched seals & sea lions and their pups play in the water. Then went to Puesto for a great lunch and Cups for great cupcakes. Also, Mission Cafe back in Mission Bay was phenomenal for breakfast. We found the Dana Horne staff to be incredibly helpful in every way. We would highly recommend this location when planning to visit the San Diego area.
Luxury Suites in Mission Beach by Joe-Heinz J. 11/11/2011
Luxury Suites in Mission Beach
Both of these penthouse suites are on the top floor of the building and are excellent options if you are looking for a bit of luxury amidst the low key, laid back atmosphere of Mission Beach. The owner, Dana, is very personable and professional and will make sure that you are comfortable and more than satisfied with the accommodations. The apartments are nicely laid out, tastefully decorated, and offer all the amenities you could possibly want or need during your stay including a jacuzzi and sauna in the master bath, large flatscreen TVs in the living room, fully-equipped kitchen, fireplace, washer/dryer, garage parking with elevator access, propane BBQ grills, and multiple balconies in each unit. Plus, being on the top floor, you don't have to worry about being bothered by the neighbors upstairs, not to mention the breathtaking sunrise and sunset views you'll get to see as a result of the near wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding glass doors in the living rooms and bedrooms. If you want a really nice place really close to the beach then you've found just that. Both apartments come fully equipped and ready to go with everything you'll need from paper towels to bath towels to beach towels and chairs and umbrellas. From your apartment you can see kayaks and sailboats going in and out of the bay, surfers and boogie boarders catching waves in the ocean, and beachgoers playing volleyball and sunbathing on the beach. The location is simply phenomenal. Right on the beach, yet a multitude of activities within a short distance. Nearby attractions include: Belmont Park, Balboa Park Museums, San Diego Zoo, San Diego Civic Theater, SeaWorld, Catalina Island, DisneyLand, and more. Surfboard, paddleboard, and waverunner rentals are within walking distance, or consider chartering your own fishing boat or sailboat. Whale-watching tours are right around the corner as are snorkeling, scuba diving, and guided kayak tours. Pacific Beach is right up the street if you are looking for college-aged nightlife, La Jolla is just a bit further North if you are looking for a 5 star dining experience, and Downtown, Old Town, GasLamp Quarter, and Coronado are all within a short driving distance for everything else in between. This truly is an ideal location and an awesome place to stay. Thanks Dana and Becky!!
40th Anniversary Party by WeddingBev (Northern California) 10/16/2011
40th Anniversary Party
I want to personally thank Becky and Dana at Dana Horne Realty for going above and beyond what was required by them on our 40th anniversary booking, as it could have been a disaster due to the construction delay. We were arriving within 24 hours for our celebration and they scrambled to secure amazing accomodations for our group of 24 coming in from all over the US. They stepped up to the plate and made us feel like it was their family they were taking care of, and provided everything I could have ever asked for. So Becky, thank you from the bottom of my heart and I will continue to sing your praises and definately use you again and again and recommend you to anyone who wants to rent in Mission Beach, CA Happy Winter Bev Wright

Holiday Bowl Weekend by japhyjones (Seattle) 12/30/2010
Holiday Bowl Weekend
Great weekend in San Diego for the Holiday Bowl. We were all blown away when we walked into the condo! Water views everywhere you look. Ran into the owner on the way in, she was very nice and made it clear she wanted us to have an enjoyable stay. Plenty of space for 7 of us to fully relax, great kitchen, great balconies off most of the bedrooms, big TV, 2 parking spots, etc... Parts of condo have not been updated in awhile, but the amenities are more than adequate. The location and views are just fantastic, it's a little peace of heaven.
The Perfect Working Vacation by Bill (San Diego, CA) 10/12/2010
The Perfect Working Vacation
We held our annual company Strategic Summit in the two penthouses at this property and everything was perfect. It allowed our out-of-town guests to enjoy a taste of San Diego while getting work done and each person loved waking up, looking out to the water, jogging along the beach, and enjoying the cool weather. Each day we met around the huge wide-screen TV by connecting our computers to it for all of our PowerPoint presentations while 15 people lounged around on the sofa and chairs to make a very informal and comfy setting for our meetings. And having the kitchen right there to grab food throughout the day was perfect! There was plenty of space for separate meetings, the wireless internet worked like a charm for all of us to get on-line at the same time, and because each room has it's own TV there were plenty of opportunities to sneak away for some individual quiet time. And, allowing me to bring my dog with me during my stay helped provide some great 'fur therapy' during our long work days! Thank you again for making our summit very productive and we will definitely consider coming back for future meetings!
San Diego Summer by Tod (Rio Rico, Arizona) 07/17/2010
San Diego Summer
We really enjoyed the penthouse. Great views of the Channel with boats coming and going from Mission Bay. We saw pods of dolfins and seals. Great views of the fireworks from Seaworld. We had room for the whole family, My 80 year old Mom really appreciated the elevator. There were resturants in walking distance, couple of bars and pizza joints 3 blocks away. Only negative would be the off and on sound of jets taking off from San Diego Airport.
Dear staff at Dana Horne Realty, Your thoughtfulness and generosity is most appreciated. by Janice 04/07/2010
Dear staff at Dana Horne Realty, Your thoughtfulness and generosity is most appreciated. Thank you for use of the beautiful Penthouse on Mission Beach! The location and views were amazing - The ocean view of infinity was exactly what my spirit has been craving during these past 5 years of cancer treatment. I am grateful beyond words. When the kind staff at the Dream Foundation described the view from The Penthouse as nothing short of spectacular they were absolutely right on the money! And because my stay was during Spring Break, I was also able to enjoy the fireworks from SeaWorld both nights from those amazing floor to ceiling picture windows. It was a lovely added bonus. Thank you again, so much, for answering my dream! Very Sincerely, Janice
