                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2013

                      About the owner: I have been a San Diego resident for fifteen years now and absolutely LOVE my city. I want the world to get to experience the beautiful place I call home! I love the SoCal lifestyle; am into fitness, animals, and travel-- although no matter what amazing places in the world I may visit, I love to come home. There is nothing like the San Diego sunshine! I believe in leaving the world better than we found it, spreading joy and loving one another.

                      Why the Owner Chose Old Town:
                      I fell in love with these cottages on sight. Walking by them, we saw that they were for sale and knew that they would make a delightful vacation rental. Old Town is such a hot spot in San Diego and there isn't much in the way of a residential area, much less vacation rentals. What better location than the heart of one of the most vibrant, highly visited destinations in San Diego!? The beautiful, lush property sits hidden amongst brilliant bougainvillea and tropical landscaping, and steps away from some of the best Mexican food in San Diego!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      Parking in Old Town? Unheard of! A designated spot in the driveway is yours! A private patio area in back allows you to enjoy the balmy weather, dine alfresco, or just relax in the San Diego sun. Wonderfully upgraded throughout, this cottage has recently had substantial renovations, including a new kitchen, remodeled bathroom, water filtration system, eliminating the need to constantly be buying water! (The icemaker in the freezer is also plumbed to the water filter!) All new furniture, paint, and appliances!
