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
Sandi 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.
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
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.
Overall the place was terrific. Nice welcome basket in the kitchen, well stocked with just about everything. Parking arrangement was great, just don't leave the spot on Tuesday mornings. They sweep the main streets that morning and if that spot is vacant it won't be for long. Once we got past that it was great. Sandi is terrific, a great host. If we go to SD next year we hope her place is available.
We absolutely loved our stay!!! So comfortable and homey, close to everything! Rode bikes and walked everywhere and Sandy is a doll! We will return.
We had a relaxing wonderful time. The place was clean, comfortable and had all we needed. The kitchen and the BBQ grill made it easy for us to eat some meals in to save us some money and get a break from the busy restaurants. Access to all the extras, beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, coolers were a bonus, especially the bikes we went without a rental car and were able to walk or bike to most locations even Sea World, we did use Uber to get downtown to the harbor. The close location to the beach made it easy to be a part of the busy life and to take in the sunset on the beach, but just enough away to be quiet and relaxing on the deck. You are close enough to be on the beach or on the bay in a short walk. We will definitely consider returning next year, may even take the kids.
We found the Sun Catcher to be perfect for my wife and me. Only a few steps to the board walk and beach which we were on every day. There were a lot of beach items to use as well as bikes which we rode almost daily. The parking was also a plus. We had no trouble with parking a Subaru Outback in the spot.
As for the location, there are a lot of restaurants within biking and walking distance. A few of our favorites were Fat Fish, for Monday lobster and Ale House , for Wednesday $1.00 oysters, and the Draft. We enjoyed seeing dolphins from the pier and beautiful sunsets.
Sun Catcher is very well stocked. Lots of condiments are in the refrigerator and shelves so make sure you look before going to the grocery store. Also movies and a lot of books to read in the condo. Bed was very comfortable and we enjoyed the
table and chairs on the deck as well as the grill.
We had an issue with the DVD player one evening, but Sandi had us a new one in one day so we still could enjoy movies.
We enjoyed all the sites in San Diego which were only a short drive from the Sun Catcher. The price and the location make the Sun Catcher a great value.
Thank you, Sandi, for your hospitality.
We really enjoyed this vacation rental just off the beach. The apartment is spacious and very comfortable, with everything you could possibly need included. Sandi (the owner) is an absolute gem and is great to work with. Next time we get down to San Diego, we'll definitely stay here again!
