About Sandi

Owner's Map of South Mission Beach My husband and I grew up in and around San Diego, but we LOVED the life style of Mission Beach and the constant change of the ocean. Ever since we can remember (we have photos of us as toddlers) we were finding ways to get to the beach as often as we could, all seasons of the year. In our high school, college days we were just amazed at time we spent working and playing here. We just couldn't get enough of the beach. There was no question, we had to invest in our own 'South Mission beach house.' We lived, worked, played and retired here. We use The Sun Catchers, our great one bedroom vacation rental above our home and 'Above the Crowd' as our retirement investment. We hope you'll enjoy all that 'our' beach has to offer. You'll want to keep coming back often. Ron & Sandi

Sandi purchased this apartment in 1979

Why Sandi chose Mission Beach

South Mission Beach has a unique balance of residential and recreational living. We are a close community with a wide variety of ages, occupations, and life styles on a narrow 'spit' of land without through traffic to other beach areas. This is the cleanest, widest, best of the beaches, neighbors talk with neighbors, and were visitors feel at home.

What makes this apartment unique

Location, location, location. See the guest reviews and how they feel about our home-away from- home amenities. So many repeat guests must know something is special and thus keep coming back.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Sandi,

I can’t believe it has taken me a couple of days to write this note. I guess I am moving more slowly with the cold weather. [Seattle, WA] Anyway, that was such a nice break for us and I know I keep saying it but we feel so comfortable and at home at Sun Catchers. [10 days] I also wanted to mention that we really were able to cook very nicely for our small T-day party. The apt. is so well equipped. .... We did a lot of cooking!

Wishing you a Happy Holiday! Saludos, carol and john

Cozy and secure

  • 5 of 5

The SunCatchers was the perfect place for me and my two daugthers. It had all the amenities you would need for however long you stay including beach toys, towels, chairs, boogie boards, etc. The ocean is steps away and easily accessed. With the owner righrt downstairs we felt safe, secure and well taken care of. They add a personal touch to your stay. The location is perfect - between bay and ocean, close to Sea World, short walk to Belmont Park, close freeway access. Having your own parking space is a big plus! The owners are honest and friendly. I would recommend small families or couples to stay there.

Great vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5

The Sun Catchers rental far exceeded my expectations. Sandi, the property owner, was such a great help from booking to check out. The property is located a few steps away from the sand and even has a beach view from the balcony. My boyfriend and I enjoyed all meals out on the balcony. The rental was stocked with anything you could possibly need, which was great in aiding in making meals at home. I would certainly recommend this rental to all friends and family. I look forward to seeing Sandi again!

Great location and awesome owner!!

  • 5 of 5

Sandra was great to work with from my first inquiry until the day we checked out. She truly thought of everything and the pictures were accurate which is always nice. The location was perfect and steps away from the beach but not so close that the boardwalk noise would bother you.

The cruiser bikes were a nice perk and we rode to breakfast and dinner almost everyday. Plus, the beach chairs were comfy and lightweight to carry downstairs.

We would highly recommend this unit for future tenants. It is probably too tight for a family with kids but definitely suitable for a couple.

Sandra checked in on us multiple times to say hi and see if we needed anything at all. We felt like we knew her for years instead of just a few days. Thank you for everything Sandra!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the super review! I really enjoyed your comments and your visit. I know we talked about a future visit with your family and my offer still stands. I'd love to have you all here, but if larger accommodations are needed, I'll be happy to refer and assist. Again, thanks and I hope to see you soon. Sandi

Beach view, sunsets and fun time

  • 5 of 5

I stayed with my friend for a week at this wonderful apartment. It was very comfortable and homey. Beach chairs, wave boards and other fun toys were available including bikes. The apartment was maintained very well and was spotless. You can enjoy volleyball games from the nicely appointed balcony. This was my first visit but it certainly won't be my last. We had a wonderful time!

Relax and Enjoy

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I stayed here for one week and enjoyed every minute. This wonderful apartment was very well maintained, absolutely spotless and very comfortable. It is right next to the beach but without all the beach wall traffic. Views of the volleyball court on the beach from the deck and is perfect for reading a book or enjoying a morning cup of coffee. They supply bikes, beach chairs, boogie boards and everything you need for enjoying the beach. I will be back again and again. You will not be disappointed.

Great!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at The sun Catchers. The accommodations are clean and comfortable and the "goodie basket" a warm welcome. the bikes and beach"toys" are appreciated. The apartment was so close to the beach, but we really enjoyed the private use deck and BBQ. You have all the amenities of being at home while on vacation. We highly recommend it to anyone looking to have a perfect beach getaway. The property ,reserved parking and neighborhood are visitor friendly, which is not always the case in a recreational area. If you want to sightsee in San Diego there is quick access to freeways.
