Owner info

Year Purchased: 1979

About the owner: 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

Why the Owner Chose Mission Beach, San Diego, CA, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
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.
