1 bedroom, ~ 720 San Luis Rey Place, San Diego, CA 92109
Owner's Map of South Mission Beach. We 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.

A lovely getaway
Sandi's apartment is truly enjoyable. Located in a very fun neighborhood with nice views and lots of great activities around. She makes the booking and check in process a breeze, and is a great host. Quiet, comfortable and private. Couldn't be happier!
Hi Brian, Thanks for taking the time to write this review. I truly enjoyed having you as guests for October and would have loved to have you stay the rest of the year. I know you are anxious to be in your new home, but remember you are always welcome to come by and visit! Best regards, Sandi
We absolutely loved this place. The location was perfect and only a half of a block from the boardwalk and beach. It had everything we wanted in a place. Sandi the owner was very courteous and friendly. I would definitely try to book it again when we come back for our next trip.
Chris and Jodi,
Thank you for taking the time to write such a nice review. You were such easy guests to have and just what any homeowner loves to have stay. Your up beat attitudes and over all happiness spread joy all around. Thanks for te review, but even more, thanks for spreading your spirits!
I would love to put photos of you/your trip in the Visitor's Book if you send them.
Come back soon...perhaps for an anniversary .
Sandi (the property manager) is fantastic!
Awesome, great get away!
Thanks for taking the time to write a review. You and Dawn were such upbeat delightful guests. Hopefully you will return soon. I really enjoyed your interaction with the neighbors.
Nice place to stay
Just what the pictures show nice to have washer and dryer
AC in bed room short walk to beaches and restaurants
The only thing is self check in unlocked doors keys on the table
Everything was fine but you never know
Thank you for taking the time to review The Sun Catchers. We value your comments and can make alternative arrangements for check-in upon request. However we switched to self-check-in per guest survey. Please come back for another visit.
The property was very dated. The sheets had old bloodstains on them, which I discovered when I took them off to prepare for leaving the property.
Thank you for taking the time to let me know. I am embarrassed and surprised about the sheets. There is absolutely no excuse. By explanation, I have spoken to the cleaning service who had a summer seasonal employee. She has several sets of furnishings to choose from if problems arise, but chose to wash and return the items instead of replacement. She will not return to tend the apartment again.
Because we are an older facility, we must make up by providing impeccable cleaning, service and comfortable amenities. It never should have happened and had we known it would have been remedied immediately. Since I count on an outsource service and their reputation, I apologize. I am meeting with their owner tomorrow. Please accept my deepest regrets and refund of $100. if you find your way back to San Diego, please give us another try and our offer for your white glove inspection.
Again, thanks for giving me a "heads up" so I can take action. Best regards, Sandi
Amazing location & everything you need!
We had the best time staying @ the beach house! We really appreciated the gift basket! The bed is very comfortable & the neighborhood was quiet & peaceful! The boardwalk is very close walking distance & all the beach gear you need is available to borrow! We went to the zoo & did a hot air balloon where I purposed to my be fiancé! We will always remember this experience! Sandi was a wonderful host & we look forward to staying here again.
Thank you Sandi!
