"We returned to Quinn Cottage for a short (4 night) stay. Still love the location, the comfort of the house, and the hospitality of Jeff and Mary. We encountered travel delays on the way in and had an early morning flight on the way out. Mary and Jeff were extremely generous in helping us, making sure we could get in easily at 3:30am and then out at 4:00am 3 days later. The house is very clean, well-maintained, and truly an enjoyable place to stay."Guest: Lynne Date of Stay: January 2014 Review Submitted: February 20, 2014View listing
"With very few and minor exceptions, this is what my own vacation home would look and feel like and what I wish I could get in a hotel. The owners have done an excellent job at setting the bar for comfort, ease of use (from check-in to everything stocked in the cottage) and simplicity. Canyon Cottage is not fussy, over-decorated, or over the top—it is truly a charming, peaceful and relaxing environment, highlighted by its’ north/south exposure and quiet neighborhood location. - Clean - Exceptional Value - Well-Maintained - Quiet - Every amenity you could possibly need is included for living here - Could use more interior lighting for reading - Easy Street Parking I'm a 30+ year hotel veteran specializing in operations, housekeeping, and major renovations. I've already booked for 2015. For one or two people, I'm confident you would be hard-pressed to find anything better than Canyon Cottage anywhere in San Diego (or a lot of other destinations)."Guest: CaseyJPS Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: August 19, 2014View listing
"My husband & I rented this house. It was close to the marathon route that he was running. He was able to walk to the starting line and we walked home from the finish line area. So, it was a great location, close to downtown. It's a hilly area, so if you walk be prepared for that. Also be aware that there are a few steps going up to the entrance. So, if steps are an issue, this place wouldn't be a good choice. It was quiet inside the house. I don't think I ever heard any airplane noise, which really surprised me considering how close they fly. I am usually easily awakened by noise. I think having the air conditioner in the bedroom helped since it makes "white noise". It was unusually warm in San Diego during our stay, so the A/C units were greatly appreciated. It took a while to cool the house down and it didn't ever make the house cold, but it was definitely more comfortable than it would have been without them. It doesn't help that the windows have to be kept cracked open. The sign says they stick if closed. They should have that fixed so the A/C could work more efficiently. It's convenient having 2 bathrooms. But, both the showers are TINY. Seriously, I am a small person and it was tight for me. My husband is 6 ft and found it tough to move around. No bathtub for kids. And, no counter space for a woman to spread out a hair dryer, curling irons, etc. That makes it difficult. I had to set the hair dryer on the floor so I could put the curling iron on the counter. And, that still worried me since it's so close to the faucet. The Wifi worked, but it was very slow. The layout of the house is great. Loved having a living area, kitchen and desk area for our laptop. My husband watched the TV in the living room so it worked well. The posted photos are pretty accurate. It seemed clean and well kept for an older home. Loved having a washer & dryer available. There were quarters as promised as well as a laundry basket. But, you do have to walk outside to get to the laundry area. The bed wasn't as comfortable as I had hoped, but not horrible. The pillows are a bit old and flat. So, newer ones would have been nice. Plenty of towels and they were fluffy and soft. I LOVED having a designated parking spot (driveway). That was so convenient! All in all, we enjoyed our stay. It's a great value considering what you get vs. staying in a tiny hotel room that costs much more. We would rent this house again and recommend to others."Guest: Donna Date of Stay: May 2014 Review Submitted: June 14, 2014View listing

Things to Do in San Diego
- SeaWorld: For an outing the whole family can enjoy, don’t miss out on SeaWorld, an animal theme park, oceanarium, outside aquarium and marine mammal park. See aquatic animals like whales, dolphins, fish and more up close and personal. You can watch a show featuring killer whales like Shamu, bottlenose dolphins doing tricks and sea lions acting silly. Some of the parks best rides include Riptide Rescue, Journey to Atlantis, Shipwreck Rapids, Wild Arctic Ride and Manta.
- San Diego Zoo: For more animal adventures, visit the San Diego Zoo. The zoo is home to more than 3,700 different animals of more than 650 species and subspecies, so there’s plenty to explore here. At the San Diego Zoo, you can experience recreations of natural habitats and watch the animals interact. It’s also one of the new zoos that features a giant panda. Grab a ride on a guided-tour bus or on the Skyfari to get a bird’s eye view. As you stroll around you’ll see gorillas, polar bears, birds, koalas and many more animals.
- USS Midway: Interested in military history? Then you’ll love the USS Midway, which was an aircraft carrier of the U.S. Navy commissioned after World War II. The ship was decommissioned in 1992 and now serves as a museum. Explore the aircraft gallery, try a flight simulator and take a self-guided audio tour.
- San Diego Museum of Art: Art lovers will appreciate the San Diego Museum of Art - the area’s oldest and largest art museum. The permanent collection features Spanish and Italian masterpieces, South Asian paintings and 19th and 20th century American paintings and sculptures. The museum also displays traveling exhibitions with text in both Spanish and English.
- Old Point Loma Lighthouse: The Point Loma Lighthouse is a historic lighthouse on the Point Loma peninsula situated in the Cabrillo National Monument. It’s no longer operational, but open to the public as a museum. Now you can step back in time and learn a variety of maritime facts here, including how the lighthouse was used to guide ships in safely.
- Cabrillo National Monument: Located on the southern tip of the Point Loma Peninsula is the Cabrillo National Monument, commemorating the landing of Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo and marking the first time a European explorer set foot on the west coast. Check out 19th century lighthouses and learn about the military history here. You can also visit the Visitor Center to find out about weather readings, what time low tide occurs and see any a film relating to the history of the monument in the auditorium.
Dining in San Diego
- Carnitas’ Snack Shack: In 2011, chefs Hanis Cavin and Sara Stroud opened Carnitas’ Snack Shack. They serve slow food-inspired, pork-based American cuisine, snacks and local beers. The menu changes daily because the chefs use local ingredients from farmers, ranchers, bakers and breweries. Not only will the meal be delicious, but you can feel good knowing you’re supporting local business!
- Market Restaurant: If you’re looking for an upscale, yet casual restaurant for a nice dinner, try Market Restaurant + Bar. Carl Schroeder, chef and owner, opened his place in 2006 and has experienced success ever since. He also uses locally grown ingredients and bases his meals around what’s in season. You can enjoy farm-fresh vegetables, meats, cheeses and other produce.
- Vincent’s: If you have a craving for some French food in San Diego, you’ll want to plan and evening at Vincent’s. Chef Vincent Grumel studied in Avignon, France, and brought back what he learned to combine classic French cooking techniques with the use of quality, in-season ingredients. Pair your meal with one of the more than 2,000 wines held in the cellar, from grand vintages and wines from small producers. For six years in a row, Vincent's was honored with the “Award of Excellence” from the Wine Spectator, so you can be sure you will be sipping something wonderful. Celebrate your joie de vivre as you dine on seafood, duck, pork, beef and vegetables!
