Immaculate cottage in South Park

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely place that's so convenient to all the fun things in San Diego. We could easily drive anywhere in the city, and my husband bicycled in every direction. Balboa Park has a "back way" into it so you can avoid the traffic. A short walk will get you to the shops and restaurants in South Park. The cottage had everything we needed for a comfortable five weeks. It has been beautifully restored. The outside patio and grounds are so lovely and cared for. The owner was very accommodating and friendly, yet unobtrusive. The Ritters from Colorado-January-mid Feb. 2017

Very clean and well appointed

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here was great! We had everything we needed, and the place was well kept, clean, and quite. We felt completely at home, and Elizabeth, the owner, was very easy to work with. The patio in front with the lights were great, and we enjoyed sitting on the patio in the evening. The kitchen has everything needed to cook and prepare food, and all the furniture and bedding was well appointed and comfortable. Great place to stay at while in San Diego!

Awesome House

  • 5 of 5

This was an awesome house! It was clean and well furnished, beautiful yard with a nice front deck. The weather was great so we took advantage and had a little BBQ dinner one night out front. We were running the AFC Half Marathon and the house was conveniently located to Balboa park as well as other attractions we wanted to see. We would definitely recommend this house to anyone looking to stay in the San Diego area

Charming cottage in a great neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was both comfortable and charming - a great combination for our extremely long stay (2 months). With two bedrooms, we were able to accomodate some other family members who came to visit us during our stay in sunny San Diego. The kitchen is well-equipped, the beds are comfortable, the outside BBQ gas-grill was great, and the TV and cable channels offerings were excellent. The owner pays a lot of attention also to landscaping, enhancing the the beauty of this well-maintained property with lush greenery and the scents of jasmine and lavender. Elizabeth was prompt to respond and helpful for any (minor) issues we encountered. To top it all off, South Park is a GREAT neighborhood - a quiet residential area, yet, filled with (very good) restaurants, cafes and clubs. We bought fresh bread or baguettes nearly everyday at Grant's Marketplace, and San Diego's best homemade chips and salsa at the Mexican-oriented grocery store, Food Bowl, both shops within walking distance. Also within walking distance is the bus stop for the number 2 bus that takes you straight downtown. The location is also convenient for getting quickly to the zoo and Balboa Park. We would definately stay here again!

Simply Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and two teenage daughters recently stayed in this amazing cottage and we were thoroughly impressed. As soon as you arrive, you're greeted with the amazing landscaping. This property is a true display of the pride of ownership. You make your way up the brick walkway to the front porch and there you'll find an amazing solid wood door. I share this, because it's this sort of detail you'll find throughout the home.

Once inside, the wood floor throughout the thoughtful floor plan is so rich and inviting. We loved having the kitchen to use instead of eating out everyday. The kitchen is well appointed and had everything we needed to prepare multiple meals. The pictures simply don't do the kitchen justice. Every detail has been addressed and no useful space is wasted. The cabinets, counters and appliances are top notch!

Into the bedrooms, you'll find two comfortable beds and a very upgraded bathroom. Again, this home has clearly been well thought out and the owner hasn't spared an expense on the finishes. The mill work is amazing! Again, my family and I had more than enough space for our five night stay and the washer and dryer made this time even easier.

If you're like me, you'll enjoy the brick patio with gazebo and lights at night and early in the morning. Every day began and ended out there.

The South Park neighborhood is amazing. There are multiple local restaurants, markets and even a Target express within walking distance. We enjoyed an Acai bowl two mornings in a row at Captain Kirk's Coffee - again, an easy walk from this cottage. We were in town for a friend's wedding - they had a condo on the beach - we weren't jealous at all! Not only is this cottage super comfortable, but the neighborhood has everything you need. You can walk to breakfast, lunch and dinner - no problem, or hit the corner market for groceries.

On the topic of location, you're conveniently located near everything you'd want to do in SD. 20 mins from Mission Beach (Sea World), 10 minutes from downtown/Gaslamp district (Try the Local!) and only 13 minutes from Seaport Village and the Midway. It was so great.

The owner was very responsive and even offered suggestions about where to find some clothes for our daughter, and then when our car battery died - she didn't hesitate to help!

In short, we'll stay in this cottage every future SD trip we make. Seriously - don't hesitate and book this amazing, charming South Park cottage.
