About Sandi

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 San Diego County

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Sandi,

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

Clean, close to the beach and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

This was second time for us staying here, we enjoyed it just as much this time. We also brought our boys 11 & 14 so it was a little tighter this time, but they both said the futon and the roll out bed was comfortable. Sandi is very helpful with anything you need. The kitchen is well stocked. The extra items such as beach chairs, coolers, boogie boards, bikes and beach toys are nice to have access to. The place is clean with great access to the beach. We have not been disappointed with anything both time.

Great place & perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We have never stayed south of Belmont Park before, so this was a new experience for us. We loved the area and the beach. The home was completely stocked. It was my myself, my teen daughter and her friend. I've never had a host as great as Sandi. We hope to come back soon. Thanks Sandi it was perfect

Amazing Location!!

  • 5 of 5

Great location! We had a great long weekend at Sun Catchers with our family of 4. Sandi could not be more welcoming and friendly. We Ubered to Sea World one day for less than $10. We enjoyed our time in San Diego! Thanks Sandi!!
