Great place close to everything we wanted!

  • 5 of 5

The place was right on the bay where the kids played constantly and a very short distance to the ocean. Restraurants and rental places were within a short walking distance. The place itself met all our expectations. Great home away from home and would recommend!

My wife, Son and I stayed for 8 days and we had a really wonderful time, great location, special personal touch from Cynthia who was really helpful. This is a quiet area, yet short walk to restaurants and shops. Everything is as described and unit was well equipped. There was nothing we lacked.

Fantastic beach cottage, perfect for small family!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 2 weeks with our 4 year old daughter. It was fantastic! Perfect space, very clean and well stocked. Such easy access to Mission Bay, which is much calmer and quiet than Mission Beach, but when we wanted to experience the ocean it was only a very quick and easy 2 block walk away! We rented bikes (complete with a tag-along for our daughter) and spent many days exploring the area and relaxing on the bay. Cyndi was very easy to arrange the rental with and provided a lot of great information beforehand. She also had many sand toys available and waiting at the cottage to my daughters delight! I hope we get to come back again, I would definitely stay here again!

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect rental for our family of four. The location is ideal being right on the bay side but so close to the beach that we could walk over every day. We rented a car, but did not end up driving the entire time as we had bikes and could get anywhere easily on the boardwalk. Cindy was wonderful to work with, very helpful answering our questions and meeting us upon arrival. The kitchen is well stocked, and we enjoyed cooking in and eating on the patio. We appreciated the quiet of the bay but also the proximity to the beach -- truly a perfect location. We hope to return again soon!

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!!

Guestbook comments from the manager

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

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.
