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

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

Sandra purchased this apartment in 1979

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.

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.

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.

SUN CATCHERS

  • 4 of 5
Sun Catchers was ready and very clean upon our arrival. The unit was well-stocked for our use. The ability to use the beach chairs, coolers and umbrella was very nice. We had a small problem which was handled immediately. I would suggest updating the appliances and adding a small dishwasher. We had a very nice vacation.

Owner's Response: Our thanks to this very nice couple from Peachtree, GA. While a timed automatic start/stop coffee maker as personally suggested earlier was not previously on our guest "wishlist" it certainly will be considered. The automatic coffee pot provided seemed to work well, as the week's coffee supply and corresponding complementary creamer, sweeteners, wine, snacks, etc. were all used. RE:the dishwasher, due to the nature and size of this beach apartment and an earlier poll of repeat renters, the in-apartment non-coin laundry (supplies provided) won hands down as the appliance of choice. It is not possible to have both, so the laundry is in and used even by these guests (please see photos of kitchen on this website). We do furnish pottery dinnerware as well as paper plates which seem to work very well at the beach. Thanks again for the guest input and the opportunity to respond. -Sandi

TRULY A HOME AWAY FROM HOME!

  • 5 of 5
There are two things to consider when choosing a vacation rental: the property and the service. Hands down you cannot get any better than the SunCatchers for the money! The apartment is extremely homey and includes all the amenities you need! The location is absolutely perfect, nestled just off of the oceanwalk right next to the beach. And Sandi will go above and beyond to make you feel like you are at home during your stay. On our first visit (which happened to be our honeymoon) Sandi not only offered us free tickets to the Zoo, SHE DROVE US THERE HERSELF! She cares about every single one of her guests and knows them by name. We could not wait to return for our first anniversary and again, our stay was wonderful! We cannot wait to go back yet again!

SUMMER VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We love this apartment! This was our second trip. Sandi has thought of everything... dishes, towels, beach toys, chairs... All you really need are your clothes. We love the balcony with the table and grill. We grilled a couple of times and enjoyed the deck and the ocean views. The apartment is in a great location and easily accessible. Sandi is great and really wants to make your trip enjoyable.

We highly recommend this apartment to couples and small families!

NO FINE PRINT...NO HASSLE...SANDI JUST WANTS YOU TO RELAX!

  • 5 of 5
Upon arrival Sandi provided a nice gift basket and a clean and welcoming home. Chairs and towels are provided for the beach which is LITERALLY across the street! She also provides bikes to ride around which are very enjoyable. SANDI WANTS YOU TO ENJOY YOUR STAY!! Two days into our honeymoon Sandi called and apologized for the weather (it was overcast but still beautiful!) and offered two tickets to the Zoo and even DROVE US THERE HERSELF! Believe all of the other posts about how much she goes above and beyond so that you can enjoy your stay. That's why she has so many repeat guests! I know we will definitely be back!

SOUTH MISSION BEACH CONDO

  • 5 of 5
Loved our condo! So comfortable and the location was perfect. Quiet but still just steps to the beach and action. Thoughtfully equipped such that we could begin enjoying our vacation from the moment we arrived. The owner was available to help us in any way we needed and made us feel at home from the start. We can't wait to return.
