Guestbook comments from the manager

This Note was left at the rental:

Thanks Cyndi for letting us stay at The Sanderling. We had such a great time and would be quick to recommend this place to all our friends back home in Canada. The kids had a great time at the beach playing all day. The place had everything we needed and was in such great condition. We have rented vacation rentals before, but this was by far the cleanest one we have stayed.

Hope to come again some day when we can!

Wonderful Family Beach Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My family found The Sanderling to be an incredibly inviting beach home. You can't beat the location! You are only two steps to the sand and the bay, a 5-10 minute walk to restaurants, shops, sports equipment rental stores and if you are so inclined Mission Beach.

Cynthia was kind and helpful. She was able to loan me a pack & play as well as a high chair for my 1 1/2 year old daughter for our stay. She also provided information about local restaurants and local things to do.

There were beach towels, beach chairs and lots of sand toys for our daughter to play with. The kitchen had all the basics you could need for your stay. The rental was nicely updated and more than comfortable for 4 adults and 1 child.

I couldn't be any more happy with our decision to stay here and can not wait to come back!

A Wonderful Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We booked the Sanderling for our small family vacation to San Diego, and couldn't have made a better choice!

From the beginning, Cynthia was amazingly helpful. When she heard I was bringing my two sons (almost 2 and almost 4), she informed me she had a Pack & Plan to loan for my youngest. She was there upon our arrival, and we saw her regularly around the neighborhood, which was nice, knowing that she was close enough should we have any pressing needs.

Upon arrival, we were immediately at home. My boys quickly grabbed the sand toys and headed for the beach. The bay side was definitely quieter. We took long walks along the bayside bike path, headed up Mission beach for breakfast, and visited the Pacific side for the Ocean view.

The amenities were great - lots of linens, wash and dryer, all the necessary kitchen and bath room items, etc. It was easy to get to and from for our daily adventures in and around San Diego, and comfortable and homey for the times we decided to stay in. The entire space was great for the kids, and November was a great time to visit the area.

I will surely recommend Cynthia and the Sanderling to anyone traveling with kids to the San Diego area - a wonderful experience!

The gratitude expressed here is also a reflection of who you are as a person and your attitude in the world. Best Regards in this New Year. Cyndi

Relaxing lovely stay at the Sanderling

  • 5 of 5

The Sanderling on Sail Bay was just what we were hoping for.

First, the patio that looked out onto the bay was perfect for morning coffee, preparing dinner on a high-end barbecue, having a nightcap and people watching. Unlike the ocean-side of Mission Beach, the people walking, running or biking along the walkway that ran in front of the Sanderling were never rowdy or questionable. Neighbors were pleasant.

We rented bikes for a day (from Cheap Rental) and biked around the bay (a very pleasant ride).

The Sanderling was stocked with lots of fresh towels and washcloths (dark navy washcloths for washing off makeup & sunscreen), roomy dresser and closet space in each bedroom. I was able to stow everything from my luggage. The big bonus was a wash & dryer just steps from the back bedroom door. No worries about having to sit in a creepy laundry room waiting for laundry to wash & dry. Behind the locked door, a good-sized stacked washer and dryer sit. You simply lock the door and return to toss your stuff in the dryer. It's a good, safe system.

The beautiful kitchen was well-stocked with all the utensils needed to cook. And, the beach chairs and towels came in very handy. The condo was very clean.

Cyndi was amazing, coming to our rescue within minutes when the patio key snapped in half. She was very easy going and available. We highly recommend the Sanderling.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your amazing review. Its fills my well, with knowing you had such a lovely visit to The Sanderling and San Diego its self. I love having such kind appreciative vacationers such as yourselves and welcome you again anytime. Our goal for all our vacation rentals, is for everyone to have your same experience. Plus you took such great care of the rental. We appreciate that respect. Thank you for taking the time to write such a glowing review. We shy away from very often asking as we want the whole experience to be about you and your vacation. Thanks again and hope to have you both back. Best Regards Cyndi

A Great Trip Made Even Better!

  • 5 of 5

My three friends and I rented The Sanderling for a short get away in September from San Francisco. San Diego has the best weather and no crowds in September, so its our favorite time of the year to visit. My girlfriend was the one to stumble upon this hidden Gem, which made our annual trip best that it has ever been.

Our place sat on the bay front, which also happened to be just minutes from the beach as well. For us, the bay was a nice retreat from the busy beaches, so we are glad we had a place away from all of the noise. The unit was centrally located, an easy walk to coffee, food, and cute shops in mission beach.

The Unit was adorable! It was CLEAN, super cute and comfortable, and had EVERYTHING that we could have needed. Cyndi was there to greet us when we first arrived, and made us genuinely feel welcomed.

We cant wait to come back again next year!

I will see you again this coming fall. Best to the others as well. Cyndi

Highly Recommended!

  • 5 of 5

My family had the pleasure of staying at the Sanderling this past September/October and had the best time! We were so happy that we ended up selecting this location and it more then met our expectations. Below are some highlights:

-Was a short trip to the airport (this was key because we had a toddler).

-Upon arrival, it was easy to locate and Cyndi was there to greet us with keys, tour and info.

-The place was just like the pictures. Really cute, clean and absolutely perfect. It included everything you can think of to make you feel at home.

-The patio was the BEST part! It included a grill, picnic table and umbrella. It had a cute little door leading right on to the beach. I personally think it was one of the best patios on that beach.

-Very active. You could go walking, biking, surfing, running, playing on the beach and the list goes on.

-Close to the ocean. The ocean beach side was only a few streets up. We enjoyed staying on Mission Beach because it was a little quieter, but you could walk and hang out at the ocean beach at any given time.

-Location was close to all the major attractions like: San Diego Zoo and Sea World. We even visited Disneyland which was approx. 1.5 hour away. Plus the location was close to shopping (grocery and clothes) as well.

All in all a great place to stay!

Its always a pleasure seeing families spend precious time with each other and create memories. I find it an honor to be able to provide a well maintained vacation home for you to be able to have a great vacation. The Sanderling's location on the waterfront beach, makes is easy to play right our front with the kids or have them play right in front of your vacation rental. Do come again anytime, I welcome you anytime. Best Regards Cyndi

Perfect Beach location, we had a great stay

  • 5 of 5

We choose The Sanderling for its location on the beach and the quieter bayside for our family stay. We were also looking for a vacation rental that was clean and taken care of as promised and this is what we were given. Our son has allergies, so it was important that the vacation rental be pet free as promised and it was, which was a relief for us and our son.

The Sanderling is great and perfect for our family of two adults and 2 children, and there is a sofa sleeper if needed in the livingroom. Our children played all day out front on the beach and we were able to walk to restaurants easily for meals. Cyndi was very helpful and even gave us a tour of rental as well as greeted us on our arrival. We loved the colors and decor of the rental and the kitchen had everything we needed for our stay.

Parking is tight like Cyndi said but was fine for our car.

With the kids we spent most of our time, at the beach, but did go to the San Diego Zoo and Sea World which are close and easy to get to.

Yes, we would recommend this rental for anyone wanting a perfect location and a really nice place to stay. I think its a perfect rental for couples, friends, or small families.

The Sanderling is a delightful beach front bayside vacation rental located on the sand and waterfront.

The Bayside beach is known for its quieter nature, gorgeous sunrises and calm water for families to relax and enjoy themselves.

Children can play for hours just out your front door while you relax or join them in a game of catch or create sand castles with fantasy journeys across the sand.

Couples also enjoy the solitude the bayside has to offer to unwind and enjoy watching the shore birds dance across the water.

The Sanderling is a great location for out of town guests who would rather have their own space to call home.

Our winter are spent with 'snow birds' vacationing here for a month or longer to escape the cold long winter periods.

This location is within walking distance to restaurants and cafes for dining.

There are miles and miles of gorgeous sandy beaches for exploring, strolling, sitting and playing at for your pleasure. We are famous for our beaches, our culture, our diverse restaurants, San Diego Zoo, proximity to Mexico, outdoor activities, and our natural beauty as a city. World class golfing, fishing, sailing, museums and theater all through out the year are right outside your door or only a short distance away.

We are a leading area for conventions and attract many corporations which hold their annual meetings at our downtown convention center which is a short 20 minute drive.

Whether you are visiting San Diego as a curious vacation with dreams of amazing beaches and near perfect weather, or a business traveler, come stay at our rentals for a great accommodation at a wonderful location on the beach.
