Cindy was a gracious host. Condo was clean, very comfortable with all the kitchen comforts for creating meals by the bay. Thoroughly enjoyed the bay warmth and atmosphere versus the busy windy and loud ocean front. Would highly recommend staying here. LJL

Very clean, perfectly located bungalow

  • 5 of 5

Cyndi was there to meet us when we arrived and quickly reviewed the important "need to know" information. From there it was a breeze.

The rental had a perfectly stocked kitchen and the patio provide a perfect place for morning & evening meals. We will definitely rent again!

The property was absolutely perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

The location, the owner, and all amenities in this beach side property were perfect for me and my two children. We couldn't have asked for a nicer vacation and the this condo was the icing on top!

The set up with two bedrooms, sleeping the three of us more than comfortably, the full kitchen, laundry facilities, and patio grill were just what we needed! We ventured out to the beach and tide pools but had an amazing time on the Bay side as well. The proximity of this property to all things in the Mission Bay / Beach community were outstanding. Walking distance to cafes and restaurants and parking for us and visiting friends was easy. This property has it all for a fun, relaxing stay; beach chairs, umbrella, beach toys, towels. I didn't have a need or worry for anything while I was there. Traveling solo with two young children, this was very important to me!!

Thank you for your hospitality and the care you put into your property, it shows and makes a difference. We will definitely be back!!

Perfect Spot for Family

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying here for 4 nights. My wife and I, along with out 1 year old were in one apartment, and my parents were in an adjacent apartment. Everything was very clean and just as described. Cyndi was wonderful and incredibly responsive. Coffee shops, restaurants, and bakeries all are within walking distance. It was very quiet at night (granted we stayed in December), which was important for us with a light sleeping toddler. We really enjoyed having coffee every morning overlooking the bay. We hope to come back again!

Great location for a young family!

  • 5 of 5

Myself, husband and 1.5yr old visited for two weeks. We really liked staying on the bayside because the water was calmer, more shelter from the elements and the general area was quieter. However it was so close to walk to everything, food places, coffee shops, the pacific beach. We loved that it was right on the beach that our toddler was constantly running to it from the patio and we were always very close.

The area was also really accessable to all the touristy attractions and it was only a ten min drive into the centre of downtown.

The place was a great size for us. It was very clean and the kitchen was well equipped! We would defiantly consider staying here again!

Excellent Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

The property was perfect for our month long stay. We had plenty of room for family that came to stay with us and enjoy the California beaches. Cyndi was a perfect host for the property, always pleasant to talk with, and very accommodating to our needs. The property was very well maintained and had everything we needed for the time we spent. Having the beach chairs and umbrellas was a very nice addition to our stay. The parking is limited but we drove our mini cooper and it worked great for us. The natural gas grill on the patio was perfect for those evenings on the patio with fresh fish from the local market while watching all the activities in the bay. This unit and Cyndi made our vacation so easy to relax and have fun without the worries of big city life getting in the way. We love San Diego and would recommend this property to anyone.

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.
