                            The unit was clean, tidy and close to everything. Sean and Gloria were friendly and helpful. It was a basic accommodation but suited our needs. No off street parking.

                            Its great to stay away from the tourist part of the city and this cottage, set in a lovely, vibrant neighborhood of San Diego allowed us good access to the city and it's surrounds (by bus if you are so inclined), whilst providing an interesting range of shops and eating and drinking establishments locally. The cottage provides excellent spacious accommodation for two people with good facilities which are well presented. It was very clean and tidy too. Gloria and Sean, the owners, live on site and they were very welcoming, friendly and informative. If you are uncomfortable staying in hotels, as we are, then this is an ideal place to stay to explore our favourite west coast city.

                            Recommended for: Age 55+, tourists without a car, romantic getaway, sightseeing.

                            My friend and I rented this very charming house for two weeks in September 2013 when we visited from France. We needed a place close to my daughter in Burlingame and where we could be independent. It was ideal. A real house for the two of us. A little garden. All you need inside. Very comfortable, quiet and well decorated. The owners live behind and were as discrete as helpful each time we needed. I would highly recommend this place. It is rare today to find such a good combination. Thanks Sean and Gloria!

                            Our stay in this charming cottage was delightful! From the moment we walked under the ivy covered archway we loved it and we hadn't even opened the door. The cottage was spotless and nicely decorated. The location we found to be so convenient, we walked to dinner one night, there was a small grocery store within a couple of blocks and a fish taco truck that is a must. There is usually a line but it's worth it, did I mention the fish tacos are $1.75? Can't be beat. Easy access to downtown, old town, the beaches, all about 10 minutes away. When we return to San Diego we will stay here again. The owners are friendly and eager to make you are comfortable and will you suggestions for restaurants. A must stay!

                            We just wrapped up an eight-day stay at the cottage and we absolutely loved being here. So, so glad we didn't stay at a hotel or downtown (too busy). The cottage was perfect for us in every way--Immaculately clean, had everything one could possibly need. It really felt like home and vacation. We always felt relaxed. The neighborhood is very quiet and the on-street parking is easy. Took only about five minutes to get to the main highway. It's close to downtown, 10 minutes or so to Coronado. The owners are extremely nice and accommodating and are quick to respond to queries. I checked many other vacation rentals in many other areas, but I kept returning to this cottage listing. I really liked the fact that the owners live right behind the cottage. I'm so glad I followed my gut instinct. If we ever return to San Diego, I sure hope we can stay here, if they'll have us! :-) Thanks so much, Gloria and Sean, it was a pleasure all around! Oh, and the flowers in the garden are beautiful!

                            We loved the cottage. The owners were very friendly and helpful, and the neighborhood was great. Everything we needed for a quiet vacation was right there - quick walk to a grocery store, restaurants, galleries, etc. Within minutes of Balboa Park, the Zoo, and the Gaslamp District, and very easy freeway access for Sea World and beaches. Thank you for a great stay!

                            Great little spot in nice neighborhood, full of charm. Sweet little private, postage stamp yard complete with a screen door and a front porch. Cottage itself has been recently renovated and it is pristine. The kitchen and bath are fully functional and in great condition, and they kept the vintage charm. Not fancy, not huge, but adorable in every way. Restaurants and shops are within easy walking distance. Owners are most helpful and accommodating. On street parking only.

                            I spent a lovely month here and would happily have stayed longer. I didn't have a car and found South Park a good location for exploring the city, on bus route 2 which takes you downtown or uptown in 20 minutes to easily connect with the network of buses, trolley and trains. I travelled south toTijuana and north to Oceanside, and all over the city using the public transport system. The cottage is just as the pictures show, was lovely and clean and everything needed was supplied. The owners were very kind and hospitable. South Park has several grocery shops, cafes and restaurants as well as various interesting small stores. Walking distance to the eastern side of Balboa Park, public golf course and nearby small canyons. The bed was really comfortable and I shall miss it!
