Description

Looking to stay somewhere special for your next vacation? Look no further – you’ve found the Mission Beach Solstice, an amazing detached home located right in the middle of the most desirable part of Mission Beach. Situated on the strand right between the beach and bay, this unique vacation rental exudes a feeling of home no matter who you are or where you live.

This is not your typical beach house. From top to bottom and inside and out, the home was custom-built using the finest in natural materials to create a contemporary masterpiece.

The homeowner-builder traveled extensively in the US, Europe and Asia, which provided the inspiration for this remarkable property. By combining diverse styles, such as the clean lines of Scandinavian architecture with the warm natural materials of Southeast Asian temples, the result achieved is a light, airy and welcoming space where you can’t help but relax the moment you walk in the door. The extensive use of stone, concrete, metal and glass adds weight and drama, and then those materials are fused with a copious amount of custom woodwork throughout to lend warmth and life to the space. The diverse wood species used include oil-rubbed oak floors, expansive Douglas fir window casings, rich mahogany doors and handrails, and solid hardwood cabinetry. The use of extraordinary building materials continues with seafoam green travertine tile with embedded marine fossils, quartzite tile with marble details, tumbled glass inlays and colorful sandstone that is ever changing when interacting with sunlight and shadows.

Guests will also appreciate the Green building practices that were used, including the photovoltaic panels on the roof, energy-efficient heat pump and tankless water heater. The climate-appropriate and drought-tolerant garden uses agaves native to Mexico, aloes from southern Africa and California-native echeveria succulents.

Attention to detail is everywhere. One-of-a-kind delights to discover include a surfboard over the staircase, made from a redwood spar reclaimed from a northern California water tower; a Douglas fir orca totem made by a Native American chainsaw artist working alongside a Washington highway; and a large kitchen island/table handcrafted from sustainable and locally harvested eucalyptus. The kitchen table is a natural gathering place and it was deliberately placed at the center of the structure. It’s the heart of the home and the lines of the dwelling radiate from there.

The open concept living floor on the main (2nd) level features a gourmet kitchen where conversation around the table flows easily and whipping up your favorite dishes is a breeze. Chefs will appreciate the induction cooktop with specialized cookware, convection oven and built-in gas BBQ with pass-through window. The kitchen’s custom-styled cabinetry is offset against a wall of back-painted glass accented with open shelving made of honed marble. The living area is just off the kitchen, and features stylish designer furnishings, including a queen sofa sleeper and a large top-of-the-line flat-screen TV and sound system.

This beautiful Mission Beach vacation rental is truly a unique and special retreat.

Call the Bluewater Vacation Homes team for help finding the perfect home for your group or for assistance planning your vacation to San Diego. Once you arrive, our guest services team is available 24/7 to ensure you have an exceptional experience.

A beautiful, incredibly designed, sleekly decorated and appointed house in a location that provides easy access to the bay and ocean. There are gorgeous woods, stones and tiles throughout, high end appliances/outside grill, ample supply of cookware and tableware. Living in this house was an experience in and on its own, being in the Mission Beach area was exciting!

Communication was great, someone must have gone the extra step and came by to set the trash out to the alley, even though it seems as though we were expected to (& would have!) and the welcome bag was nice. The check out procedures were easy, though I wish you'd let us keep some perishable foods behind, if the cleaning staff or whoever would want to take them, we'd have welcomed that! We had sealed packages of a few things that we just tossed and I hated to do that!

The Mission Beach Solstice House was a fantastic home away from home for a week for our family. When we come to San Diego we usually stay in a resort in Carlsbad right on the beach, so staying here was a new experience in many ways, and one we do not regret at all! The location to everything in San Diego can't be beat, the feeling of Mission Beach itself is a small, beach town with slower, easy living life, the shops and restaurants are cute and quant, but phenomenal. We visited quite a few and the people are welcoming and friendly. The house itself has nearly everything you need, rarely did we ever want for anything. Having a garage with two spots to park in is worth a lot in a city where parking can be at a premium, so always consider that when weighing the costs of some places compared to others. The photos of this home are EXACTLY as the house is, well decorated, incredibly clean, a calm, cool oasis to kick back in before and after visiting the beach. When looking at a map, I couldn't quite figure out how far it was to the beach, so I was quite pleased when we walked there on our first day and found it was literally just a block or so to the beach and lifeguard stand #20. This part of the beach was never overcrowded, but even if it was, we had everything we needed provided to us in the garage, with chairs and a few beach toys and an umbrella, which I believe have been left behind by prior guests. This pay it forward mentality made it easy for us to leave behind a few things for others to use as well. The air conditioning in the house is wonderful, because while San Diego has year round great weather, it can get warm, especially on the 3rd floor, which is where we slept, and after a day at the beach. So, coming home to some cooler air felt great, and lent to a great nights sleep. Everything has been well thought out, and no expense spared, as the appliances are high end, the plug ins complete with usb/charging options, an outdoor shower for washing away the sand and remotes for the garage/cars. We were sad to leave behind this house and would absolutely consider this location again when booking our next stay in San Diego, and will refer this place to other friends, in fact, we already have!

We were looking for a San Diego beaches property for a family get together. We contacted Bluewater and located the perfect spot. The Bluewater team were fast, professional and very helpful to make the booking, arrival and stay feel very comfortable. Their support made the stay everything we hoped it would be and allowed us to focus on our time together.

Our family loved our stay at Mission Beach Solstice. The location and property were exactly as advertised. It was close to everything and was a great place to share new memories. Highly recommend this property!
