What A Gem!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had the pleasure of staying in this great little spot on Mission Bay. The location is perfect as it is convenient to grocery stores, restaurants, and the beach is just right across the street! And, it's all within walking distance. Everything is well appointed from linens to kitchen appliances. There are beach towels, chairs and beach toys for enjoying the bay, which is right outside of the unit. And what a beautiful bay! There are sailboats, an occasional jet ski and rowing teams that visit frequently. We watched the sun come up over the mountains in the morning and the fireworks from Sea World at night right from the living room. Cyndi provided lists of things to do and where to eat and was easy to get in touch with while we were there. If you want a great vacation on the bay, this is THE rental. From the comfort, the views and the location, you can't find a better spot. Oh, and did I mention the weather in San Diego? It is so nice that any time of the year is perfect for a stay at Vacation by the Bay. Thanks for everything Cyndi and we'll see you again next year.

We were planning a family vacation and wanted to feel more "at home" in a condo instead of a hotel. This condo was PERFECT!!! Cynthia was awesome, super sweet! We have a 6 year old and 4 year old and they LOVED the beach. They played in the sand and searched for shells every morning and evening (Cynthia had toys there for them so we didn't have to bring any!). It was also very clean and had everything you needed! It was a pretty quiet place also! The ocean was just a few blocks away and we walked there most evenings and have a beach day the day before we left. Mission Beach was the perfect place for our family! We would HIGHLY recommend this place to anyone! We would also love to come back and visit! Thank you Cynthia for a fabulous vacation!

We needed 4 bedrooms and Cyndi recommended renting the Sanderling and Kingfisher that are connected and it was a wonderful spot for our family to celebrate a big birthday for me! Cyndi was there to greet us and ran us through the units and quickly responded when we couldn't access the wireless internet. The condos are as lovely and welcoming as they are in the pictures! We loved having the view of the bay right outside our windows and when we weren't on the go were sitting on the is also much quieter than being in the ocean side! I was a little concerned about being there during 4th of July week knowing it would be crazy on the ocean boardwalk, but you'd never have known it where we were! Lots of families and a great place to be! The ocean is only a couple of blocks away and it was nice to hit the beach so easily! Thank you, Cyndi, for the care you take of your rentals and for helping to make this such a memorable vacation for us! I'd definitely recommend these condos for anyone wanting to visit San Diego and want to be near the ocean.

The Kingfisher was the perfect vacation spot for our Wisconsin family of five. It was bright, clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the patio on the bay for our early morning coffee and conversation with local people and their pets, afternoon energy with runners, walker, and skateboarders and quiet evenings where we could watch the Sea World fireworks from a distance. Our three teenage children had an excellent time searching for crabs, shells, and sand dollars, skateboarding, boogie boarding in the big Pacific waves and just "chillin" in our rental. We all loved the easy day trips to the San Diego Zoo, Alpine's Outlet Mall, Little Italy (Mimmo's Restaurant), Coronado Island, La Jolla, and our favorite place, Old Town (Le Patio Restaurant and The Tile Shop were really fun). Our host Cyndi was very friendly and prompt with her responses and the return of our full security deposit. We have already started saving our pennies for our next visit!

Fun and enjoyment had by all. Can't say enough. The condo was absolutely amazing, clean, beautifully decorated, and very accommodating. The view was a dream and beach so safe for the children to go play and pick seashells. Great location to get to Seaworld and the Zoo. I must say that above most wonderful was Cyndi who helped us immediately when we were in need. 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.

We had a great time during our 8 night stays during Spring Break. The accomodations were newly renovated and very kid friendly. With the board walk and beach right out our patio door the choies were plentiful as to our daily actiivties. We also visited Seaworld and the Zoo which were only minutes away. Watching the fireworks from Seaworld while sitting on our patio was also a nice touch. There are some great restaurants and other amenities on Mission Blvd that are only a short walk away. We will be back!
