"Perfect Beach Experience!"
Dream come true to stay in a beautful home on the ocean walk. Waking up to that expansive view of the ocean was dreamy. Kendra with Flipkey and BlueWater Vacation was terrific: helpful, friendly and easy to get in contact with. She was a prefect local contact - L. Gambardella.

I stayed here for a relaxing romantic birthday getaway and it was so wonderful! The location and views were amazing. We started with mimosas in the cottage with ocean views, then walked up the back steps to downtown La Jolla to enjoy the shops and restaurants and treats! (the gelato at the gelateria frizzante is amazing) Later that afternoon we enjoyed a stroll along the coast... all without driving anywhere!! It was wonderful to have the cottage in the middle of everything to pop back into. It was so relaxing :) This cottage is absolutely adorable. I loved the bright fun appliances and everything was so clean and new. There was everything we needed and more! We laughed at our curiosity when we pressed the button over the bedside table, and the steam shower started! This place has it all! I would definitely stay here again and again!! It is phenomenal! - Krystal SD
We had a fantastic stay at Mission Beach Haven!! We were three couples visiting San Diego, most of us for the first time, who wanted to be close to the beach and right in the mix of things. The place is literally ABOVE an amazing coffee shop, where we got coffee and acai bowls most mornings, walking distance to tons of great breakfast, lunch, dinner and drink spots and, best of all, a stones throw from the beach!! Ubers are swarming this area, so we never had to wait more than 3 minutes for a ride. The place itself was amazing. Huge living area, open kitchen, three nice sized bedrooms, tons of closet space and hangers, so many windows that made for sunny and breezy times spent indoors. The sun room was the perfect atmosphere for our competitive board game playing (board games included with home). The staff at Bluewater was so easy to work with. They allowed us to check in early and check out late, were so quick to reply to our inquiries and always available via email/phone. Can't say enough wonderful things - would 100% stay here again!!
"Lots of space, fun, relaxing :)"
Nice place - we rented the bottom 2 floors. It has 2 bedrooms upstairs (sleeps up to 5), with a bathroom for them all. Big kitchen & living room has a fold out couch. Downstairs master suite is huge with private porch w/ outdoor hot tub. Can exit beach from the porch. Nice big balcony upstairs too w/ grill - looks out at the bay and the beach. Practically across from the volleyball nets. A few minutes from the beach water (it's not directly on the bike path). Pretty quiet actually, especially for a holiday weekend! Management was super friendly + helpful too :)

Review: "We rented this beautiful beachfront beach house in La Jolla from Bluewater Vacation Homes this past weekend. The house was perfect; it was very clean, the photos were accurate, and we had a great time! Bluewater was very responsive and communicative, and remained on call to answer all of our questions, and were extremely helpful. We traveled with a lot of children, and it was well worth it. We will definitely be back, and would definitely recommend this rental company!"
Enjoyable and relaxing with plenty of available activities
Plenty of room for large groups. Clean and durable with attractive tile. The washer and drier makes a week long stay easier. The bay front beach is calm for youngsters with the full force and beauty of the Pacific Ocean about two blocks away. Don't forget your sunscreen as there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy the outdoors.

"Luxury home, great management"
I vacation in SD several times a year, this is the best home I've stayed in and best management company I've dealt with by far. They pay attention to all the small details, the home is impeccably maintained and well stocked with everything you'll need. Beautiful exclusive quiet neighborhood, rooftop patio view of the ocean, high-end furnishings and appliances. I've paid similar prices for other supposedly luxury properties from other companies and been disappointed numerous times by the wear-and-tear on the house, uncomfortable beds, cheap linens, etc. Guest Review from kdle2 - Mar 12, 2012

Review: My husband and I stayed here while I attended a conference in San Diego. Casa de las Olas was an ideal location for our stay--close commute to San Diego and close to the outdoor activities we love. The beach, running trails, and Torrey Pines Natural Reserve are all easily accessible. The home is also conveniently located for day trips outside of San Diego. We hiked in Anza-Borrego Desert State Park and visited sites north in Escondido. Wonderful trip for work and play and nice to have a comfortable place to come back t

"Take the first step into this home-it's is a ooooo and a ahhhh with full frontal beach view. Fantastic beach front home one story above the beach walk which made for great people watching & privacy. Ample room for family & kids to hang inside & out. The perfect home for a family reunion. Planned on BBQ'ing the first night and we just got started then ran out of fuel-had to cook indoors :-(. Called Bluewater and had fuel delivered 1st thing in the am :-). You are literally 10 steps from the beach. Grabbed a chair & umbrella from the garage and spent the day on the beach...life is good! Mission Beach is an eclectic beach town and we enjoyed it very much!"

Review: "Georgous home, quiet neighborhood, awesome pool and hot tub-We stayed in this home for a week for fall break. Have two small kids and this house had everything that we needed. House is in quiet area, little street traffic, and comfortable neighborhood feel. House has upscale kitchen, bathrooms and awesome heated pool and jacuzzi area. Loved the washer and dryer on site. Would highly recommend this house for anyone looking for an upscale home. Just a short 5 minute drive to beach and stores."

Review #11628367 Perfection!!
We had an amazing time during our stay at this property in La Jolla. It was perfect for us with the 2 separate bedrooms each with a full bath. Our 2 boys (ages 7 and 10) shared one of the very large bedrooms and had their own bathroom!
The management company was super responsive, communicative and very accommodating. The property was very clean and well maintained. It was great to be able to walk to the beach and hang out and not feel like we were committed to the beach for the entire day.
In the evenings,we would watch the incredible sunset from the balcony. Perfect view! The location is wonderful, and other than the construction in the area, it is a quiet neighborhood that is not very touristy. But it's very close to the more touristy areas for shopping and restaurants. There is a grocery store nearby where we stocked up on staples for our stay.
I truly cannot say enough about this property. We would return in a heartbeat and highly recommend it.
The Sandpiper is in a great location. Very close to Sea World and many other attractions. The area was quiet and peaceful, but if you wanted excitement, you could simply walk up the beach to Belmont Park. The staff at Bluewater were very helpful. Our family was 2 adults and one 12 year old. The unit is smaller, but very nice and clean. So much better than a hotel room! The beach is only about 100 ft away. Awesome! We will stay here again when we return to San Diego. - L. Gambardella
I recently met up with some college friends to share the sunshine in La Jolla and we rented this beautiful home. Everything was very new and worked perfectly. It was such a treat to watch the sun set over the ocean, and to watch movies in the theater. One of the things I liked best was how flexible Bluewater was. The company was very easy to work with the they made the whole experience better. - K. Newell
"The perfect location!"
The service was excellent! The condo was beautiful! It had everything you need even little extras like chairs for the beach and a frisbee! The boys had a ton of fun with the frisbee.

"This house worked out perfectly for my mom's birthday celebration. We had plenty of room for the 7 adults and one baby to each have our own space. The apartment was immaculate when we arrived and well stocked with the essentials (toilet paper, dish soap, etc.). Very pleasant experience. Will hopefully get the opportunity to stay again in the future!"
Our vacation to San Diego was probably about the best if not "the best" vacation we have ever had. It started out as myself and my two sons...it ended up with myself , my two sons and 5 other young men aged 19 to 25 that came along. I want to say NOW if it hadn't been for Bluewater's direction and suggestions of renting just the right house, this vacation probably would not have worked out with so many different ages and personalities but they helped me pick the absolutely PERFECT location. Even the neighbors were great ! And since we all had so much fun 3 of the 5 young men that came along have decided they want to move to San Diego this summer. I can guarantee that I will be going back to San Diego on a yearly excursion and the person I will be calling for the best place to stay each year will be Paul Becker with Blue Water Vacation Homes.

"We have stayed in Mission Beach several times in the past 5 years and this has been our favorite beach rental so far! The modern design, spacious living area, 4 decks with ocean views, and falling asleep to the sound of crashing waves was not a bad way to spend the week. The beach in front of this condo was always uncrowded for us, even on the weekends when looking either way down the beach and there was nothing but people. When staying here you have to stop by the best coffee shop in San Diego, that is a short walk from the house, called Better Buzz! Definitely recommend renting this home!"

Review: "Great place. Well maintained, updated decor and fixtures, and plenty of room for a larger group. The building is very secure and in a great part of town in walking distance of restaurants, bars, ice cream shops, the main grocery store, shopping, the beach, etc. And to top it off, the management staff was very attentive and helpful. When I thought there was an issue with the shower, they had somebody come right out to inspect. Turned out to be nothing wrong but I appreciated the care and friendliness the staff showed. Would highly recommend this place and this company."
"Perfect location in San Diego!"
Stayed in the house for one week together with 5 other guys. The space is well enough for 5-6 people sharing the beds so it was perfect!
The location just on the beach front walk is great with a nice outside seating area with a fire place and nice view.
Bluewater helped us arrange a nice welcome with cold champagne waiting upon our arrival in a very customer friendly way which was very appreciated!
I would recommend this house anytime but if you want sun and beach I suggest going earlier than October when the weather and beach life outside is more lovely, then it should be even better!
