Have you priced a hotel room lately? Nightly hotel room rates are going through the roof these days. The daily resort fee alone can ruin any relaxation you may have thought you’d get from your weekend away. Why not rent a beach front vacation rental instead? When you rent a vacation rental property you are usually staying in someone else’s vacation home. Because these are vacation rentals, they are nearly always located in relaxing locations like on the beach front in San Diego’s Mission Beach. When you rent a vacation rental property there are no resort fees, no room service fees, or additional fees to use the pool or work out room. Instead you pay a single nightly rate that can cost about the same price as a hotel room. Additional fees are usually a departure cleaning fee, city room tax (San Diego’s city room tax is currently 10.5%) and a possible security deposit or a nominal damage waiver fee in lieu of a security deposit.When you rent a beach front vacation rental you have all the luxuries of someone else’s second home or vacation rental property. Usual amenities are private out door patios, gas or charcoal BBQ grills, large flat screen televisions, Wi-Fi, reserved parking, wahser and dryer, amazing views of the ocean, nightly sunsets, glimpses of sea life such as whales, morning walks along the ocean while finding seashells and nightly bon fires on the beach. Plus great memories with friends and family.The minimum night stay is most always three nights but in the peak season the this minimum nightly stay can stretch to a week, starting and ending on a Saturday. Peak season for beach front vacation rentals starts Memorial Day weekend and lasts through to Labor Day weekend. Peak season rates also apply to holidays such as Christmas, Thanksgiving and Spring Break. These holidays can book up to a year in advance so it is best to reserve your beach front vacation rental as early as possible in order to secure the best property for your vacation in Mission Beach.
