Review: Dana Horne Realty Ocean Vista Penthouse, South Mission


Book A Vacation

There can be few more laid-back, sunny-vibe, beachy places than San Diego; the eighth largest city in America, it really doesn’t feel that way and is more like a series of chilled-out villages. One of the most stunning is Mission Bay and a fab place to make your own home-from-home here is the Ocean Vista Penthouse in South Mission.


Mission Bay is a saltwater lagoon just south of Pacific Beach in San Diego; a classic, vibrant boardwalk beach town filled with parks, playgrounds, basketball courts, volleyball courts and the famous Sea World. The Ocean Vista Penthouse is perfectly located on the southernmost tip of the Mission Beach peninsula in South Mission, just far enough removed from the craziness of the boardwalk! You are literally a few minutes’ walk to the ocean and the sands reach right up to the front of the house; there are stunning sweeping views of Mission Bay on one side and the Pacific Ocean and jetty at your front door. It’s easy to reach all the main attractions; Sea World is just a 5-minute drive, San Diego Zoo is a 17-minute drive and the airport is just a 20-minute drive.

Style & Character

The property is modern and stylish inside and out, but the truly exciting thing about the condo is the views; stunning panoramic views of the beach and the ocean allow you to see the beautiful sunrise each morning and watch the sunset in the evening; the large accordion windows wrap around the living area and really bring the outside – everywhere you go the views seem to follow you; the kitchen, the breakfast bar, the lounge and even the bedrooms enjoy that fabulous view!

Service & Facilities

The single-story, penthouse condo is huge at 2,000 sqft and has four-bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. Everything that you would expect in a luxury apartment is provided; there’s an elevator, two reserved parking spots in the secure underground garage, high-speed wireless internet and not just bath towels but beach towels too! The living space features a large flat screen TV and digital cable with a massive corner sofa; perfect for entertaining any younger members of the group for a while! The balcony is the place to make the most of those views; set up camp here with a glass of something chilled as the sun goes down; you won’t want to leave.


There is so much space to spread out and take over this huge condo; it’s perfect for an extended family to catch up or for a group of friends travelling together. The condo can sleep 12 comfortably but is ideal for groups of around 8; three of the bedrooms have king beds and the fourth bedroom has two sets of bunk beds. There are also 2 queen-size plush air mattresses available as well as a twin-sized cot.

Food & Drink

The condo is well set up for self-catering and the kitchen is stocked with everything that you might need and there’s a propane powered BBQ out on the balcony; but you’re on holiday so don’t do it all yourself, there are lots of great dining options along the boardwalk; catch up on a little people watching while you enjoy your dinner.

The Ocean Vista Penthouse is provided by Dana Horne Luxury Vacation Rentals who have a great range of properties in the San Diego area.
