A Mission Beach rental gives you the opportunity to enjoy the weather and various activities which abound in the area, without feeling that you are tied down to time-keeping for meals, as you would be in a hotel. This is a great way to take a vacation, especially when you have children. It always seems a shame to drag them away from the beach when they are playing and enjoying themselves, just because you have already paid some hotel for your food. A vacation rental in Mission Beach is also great if you have one of those children who simply refuse to eat ‘normal’ food; having access to your own kitchen area means you have control over the food you cook, and you know you can get them to eat well, just as you would do at home.

And another thought to bear in mind, along with the ‘fussy’ eaters, is that when you have control over the food, you can also take care of those who suffer from allergies. While a lot of restaurants will say that they do not cook anything with nuts etc. in the same pans, you cannot be so certain with packaged foods. How would you know if something in a hotel restaurant had been prepared in the same area as nuts? It is far better to be safe than sorry with your loved ones, especially if you are in an area which is far away from your usual medical practitioner.

So, a Mission Beach vacation rental is the way to go for your next vacation, right? But how are you going to be able to choose from the plethora of accommodation which is available in the area? How do you know you are going to get good value for money? One good way of course is by word of mouth; you cannot go far wrong if you read through customer reviews. These will be independent and usually are very honest. If you discover that a family or group similar to the size/age of your group have enjoyed a Mission Beach vacation in a rental property, then the chances are that you too will enjoy it. But please bear in mind, that you cannot please all of the people all of the time, and sometimes, just sometimes, there may have been a review left from one of those types who can never be pleased. It’s more important in this case to see how the people who look after that particular Mission Beach rental respond to complaints, than to take notice of the actual complaint itself. This will tell you far more about the company you are looking to deal with, than any kind of rhetoric spouted from someone who probably wouldn’t be happy staying at the crème de la crème of hotels! If the management have responded positively, and gone out of their way to correct the perceived problem, then you can be almost certain that they are the kind of people you want to be dealing with. Obviously, should there be many complaints then you would need to take stock and maybe consider a different area within Mission Beach to take your vacation rental.

Make sure that the location you are looking at for your Mission Beach vacation rental is everything you hoped it would be as well; there is nothing worse than imagining you are going to have a sea view only to discover that the place you have rented actually faces inland! And take particular notice of the amount of rooms on offer, as well as the kitchen facilities. You wouldn’t want to have to go and buy utensils or other necessities when all you want to do is chill out on your vacation in a Mission Beach vacation rental apartment or condo.

There really is something for everyone to do when you decide to take a vacation in San Diego; it is after all, America’s ultimate vacation destination. Another great consideration when you are looking at booking a rental vacation in Mission Beach, is what else there is to do in the area, apart from enjoying lazy days on the golden sand! Consider paying a visit to one of the places where the weather doesn’t matter, such as La Jolla Playhouse, who have just announced upcoming shows for the 2014/2015 season. They are located at: 2910 La Jolla Village Drive, which is less than a twenty minute drive from Mission Beach itself. Since it came into being, the La Jolla Playhouse has created more than 70 world premieres. It has a mission to help develop new works, and is interestingly involved in advance theatre as an art form.

The Maritime Museum of San Diego is another place where you might find it to be far more interesting than you would have thought at first glance. It’s home to the world’s oldest sailing vessel, The Star of India, which still actually sails and is located on the waterfront in downtown San Diego. You can enjoy a regular public afternoon sails on the topsail schooner, the ‘Californian’, or take a look at the ‘Surprise’, which is the frigate featured in the movie ‘Master and Commander.’

Another super thing (both for the youngsters, and the young at heart,) to take time out to see is the local skating club called ‘Skate This!’ who perform free of charge at weekends. You will see superb displays of trick skating as well as dancing on rollerblades and traditional skates.
