More Info

Very Clean perfectly located bungalow

Date of Stay:

Very clean, perfectly located bungalow 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! Submitted: Aug 22, 2017 | Stayed: August 2017

Perfect location

Date of Stay:

Perfect location! 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! Submitted: Aug 22, 2017 | Stayed: August 2017

This property was absolutely perfect

Date of Stay:

The property was absolutely perfect!! 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 Beach Location

Date of Stay:

PERFECT BEACH LOCATION, WE HAD A GREAT STAY 5 of 5 We choose The Sanderling for its location on the beach and the quieter bayside for our family stay. We were also looking for a vacation rental that was clean and taken care of as promised and this is what we were given. Our son has allergies, so it was important that the vacation rental be pet free as promised and it was, which was a relief for us and our son. The Sanderling is great and perfect for our family of two adults and 2 children, and there is a sofa sleeper if needed in the livingroom. Our children played all day out front on the beach and we were able to walk to restaurants easily for meals. Cyndi was very helpful and even gave us a tour of rental as well as greeted us on our arrival. We loved the colors and decor of the rental and the kitchen had everything we needed for our stay. Parking is tight like Cyndi said but was fine for our car. With the kids we spent most of our time, at the beach, but did go to the San Diego Zoo and Sea World which are close and easy to get to. Yes, we would recommend this rental for anyone wanting a perfect location and a really nice place to stay. I think its a perfect rental for couples, friends, or small families. Submitted: Sep 16, 2012 Stayed: Aug 2012 Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your positive review and feed back about The Sanderling vacation rental. As with all our rentals, we strive to provide each vacationer with exactly what they are promised in our advertisements on HomeAway. Its lovely vacationers such as your self, that bring us great joy and pride in our work. Its such a compliment to have vacationers happy, satisfied and content with their stay at The Sanderling. I do hope you will return again, should you be vacationing again in Mission Beach. We wold love to have you and your family. Best Regards, Cyndi

A Great Trip Made Even Better

Date of Stay:

A GREAT TRIP MADE EVEN BETTER! 5 of 5 My three friends and I rented The Sanderling for a short get away in September from San Francisco. San Diego has the best weather and no crowds in September, so its our favorite time of the year to visit. My girlfriend was the one to stumble upon this hidden Gem, which made our annual trip best that it has ever been. Our place sat on the bay front, which also happened to be just minutes from the beach as well. For us, the bay was a nice retreat from the busy beaches, so we are glad we had a place away from all of the noise. The unit was centrally located, an easy walk to coffee, food, and cute shops in mission beach. The Unit was adorable! It was CLEAN, super cute and comfortable, and had EVERYTHING that we could have needed. Cyndi was there to greet us when we first arrived, and made us genuinely feel welcomed. We cant wait to come back again next year! Submitted: Stayed: Sep 2013 Owner's Response: Thank you Hana, for the wonderful review. It was nice having you and your friends come enjoy The Sanderling. Your review is just the experience we hope everyone can have staying at our rentals and visiting Mission Beach. Its a perfect location and a good fit for the 4 of you. I will see you again this coming fall. Best to the others as well. Cyndi

Highly Recommended

Date of Stay:

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! 5 of 5 My family had the pleasure of staying at the Sanderling this past September/October and had the best time! We were so happy that we ended up selecting this location and it more then met our expectations. Below are some highlights: -Was a short trip to the airport (this was key because we had a toddler). -Upon arrival, it was easy to locate and Cyndi was there to greet us with keys, tour and info. -The place was just like the pictures. Really cute, clean and absolutely perfect. It included everything you can think of to make you feel at home. -The patio was the BEST part! It included a grill, picnic table and umbrella. It had a cute little door leading right on to the beach. I personally think it was one of the best patios on that beach. -Very active. You could go walking, biking, surfing, running, playing on the beach and the list goes on. -Close to the ocean. The ocean beach side was only a few streets up. We enjoyed staying on Mission Beach because it was a little quieter, but you could walk and hang out at the ocean beach at any given time. -Location was close to all the major attractions like: San Diego Zoo and Sea World. We even visited Disneyland which was approx. 1.5 hour away. Plus the location was close to shopping (grocery and clothes) as well. All in all a great place to stay! Submitted: Oct 27, 2013 Stayed: Sep 2013 Owner's Response: I loved having you and your family stay at The Sanderling, beach front vacation rental. Its always a pleasure seeing families spend precious time with each other and create memories. I find it an honor to be able to provide a well maintained vacation home for you to be able to have a great vacation. The Sanderling's location on the waterfront beach, makes is easy to play right our front with the kids or have them play right in front of your vacation rental. Do come again anytime, I welcome you anytime. Best Regards Cyndi

Amazing, Beautiful, Relaxing

Amazing, friendly and accommodating you are Cyndi, thank you so much for your kind heart and wonderful spirit. You made our stay that much enjoyable. Totally recommend the Sanderling, we will be back.
