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.
What makes this Apartment unique
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. Will always consider 90 night stay for maximum 2 occupants. ASK! Govt workers & travel nurses love to stay as everything is move in ready.
100% refund if cancelled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if cancelled at least 30 days before arrival date.
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!
I loved our stay. It was so close to the beach and was perfect for my daughter and I.
Great place and tremendous landlord
The place was very clean and comfortable. We totally loved our stay!
I hope you know how much I look forward to your annual trek out west. After 8 + years you are now family, thee neighbors love you, and we are all better because of your visits. Thanks! Sandi
The house was perfect. It is less than a block from the boardwalk. Sandi has thought of everything to make the stay feel like home. Everything you may need to enjoy your stay and the beach were available. We ate out most days but would have had everything to prepare meals if we chose to. Having a parking space available was definitely a plus. It was perfect and hope to return in the future.
Thank you Debbie and Greg,
You were great guests to have here in January and I know you brought the three weeks of super sunshine. Sorry you had to go home to -14 weather, but remember you are always welcome to come back and thaw out.
Spacious one bedroom accurately described at bargain price!
We really enjoyed our stay at this very nice upstairs property! The home was well stocked with all the necessities for our trip such as coffee, utensils, linens, etc. There was plenty of room to move around the home and the bedroom was especially roomy. My teenage daughter was comfy sleeping in the rollaway twin bed. The sunny deck had a nice view of the volleyball courts and was set up with a bbq ready to use. Sandi was a gracious and generous host who was quick to reply to our questions. I would definitely recommend this home to others and would rent it again!
