Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 28 nights


About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

A bright and sunny beach house in the Cays...the Coronado Seahorse Cottage.

The Coronado Cays is an exclusive guard-entry community just 5 miles south of Coronado Village. Escape the crowds and enjoy a nature-filled, peaceful beach vacation.

The very act of arriving at the Coronado Cays feels like a beautiful escape. Driving down the Silver Strand with the San Diego Bay one side and and Pacific Ocean on the other, dazzles with an expanse of water and blue sky.

My husband and I are both former hotel executives and see our home with detailed 'hotelier' eyes. We place a premium on providing an immaculate and comfortable experience for our guests!

Our home has a gorgeous beachy decorator interior with a touch of patriotic Americana! Our furnishings and decor come from Williams Sonoma Home, Smith & Hawken, Anthropologie, Pottery Barn, Sur la Table and more.

Enter through a charming custom seahorse gate to a beautifully secluded, landscaped yard. This recently renovated single-level seaside-chic home is relaxed, airy and comfortable!

A great, open floor plan and new sliding doors in every bedroom and dining room make for a great indoor/outdoor lifestyle. Relax on the patio and enjoy the ocean breezes and relaxed Coronado lifestyle.

The sunny, gourmet kitchen features custom cabinets with lots of storage, exotic granite and top-of-the-line stainless appliances, including Sub Zero refrigerator, Bosch dishwasher and GE Profile convection range. The garden window over the sink looks out to the patio, herb-garden and yard. A charming french door leads to the rose garden.

The living room has a wall of windows and a gorgeous fireplace with custom mantel and ledger stone surround. There are baskets full of current favorite magazines in the living room.

The large master features a comfy queen bed, flat screen tv, private patio and lots of closet space. The master bathroom suite has a shower and an additional closet.

The guest bedroom features a full bed and large sliding door that opens to the yard.

The den also has a sliding door to the yard and a large panel flat-screen television, dvd player and a video library with over 30 hit movies for all. There is a great selection of board games and a library of fun, beach-reading type books. There is WiFi if you want to stay connected..or not!

The large guest bathroom features double sinks, a tub and shower.

You will enjoy the ultimate Coronado lifestyle..the beach, boat docks, clubhouse with heated swimming pool, bbq area and Loews Coronado Beach Resort are all just a five minute stroll away! We have a couple of bikes in the garage that you are welcome to use.

The Silver Stand state beach is a perfect family gathering spot with restrooms, snack bar and lifeguards. The shallow shoreline and minimal crowds make it popular for world-class kitesurfing.

This lovingly renovated 'Seahorse Cottage' is the quintessential Southern California beach house with style and wonderful amenities. Everything you might dream of for your perfect Coronado beach holiday!

About The Owner

We are a married couple with a young son and live about 45 minutes from Coronado in another beach town, Encinitas, CA. We recently renovated the house with the plan of moving there but found we are too entrenched in our community and school. It is our hope that others will enjoy it as much as we do.

The Owner purchased this house in 2000

Why The Owner chose Coronado Cays

As soon as we are on the Coronado Bay Bridge, we start to feel like we are on vacation. Coronado is a fantastic All-American town with so much to do year-round!

What makes this house unique

Our house is perfectly located in the Cays. So close to the beach and bay. We love to get up early in the morning and walk to the beach with our coffee and beach-comb for hours.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Very grateful for this delightful suited our needs perfectly. Coronado Island is delightful and we believe your home is the best place to stay on the island!

Relaxation at it's best.

  • 4 of 5

The overall aesthetics are pleasant. The yard and patio offered privacy and outdoor enjoyment. The south side provided great light filtering into the home. Location to the beach was SO close and convenient! I was looking for a relaxing experience and this provided even more than my expectations.

The owners were GREAT to deal with along with being very accommodating! This will definitely be a revisit when I return to Coronado.

Beautiful & Comfortable home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have stayed at this wonderful rental twice this year, August and November! Both stays were wonderful and the more we stay here the more we like it! It is so clean, comfortable and roomy and we feel so at home! Lisa and Paul have been very generous and great to work with you. They go the extra mile to make it special every time! We highly recommend Seahorse Cottage!

Beautiful place in a great neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed Feb and March. Weather was great. The living room and and well appointed kitchen overlook a large and private back yard. Shopping and downtown San Diego are short drives. Free tennis courts are a short walk away (which we used frequently). Golfing is also convenient. Overall a great stay with everything we were looking for.

Charming Coronado Cays Cottage

  • 4 of 5

This was the ideal location for us. It is out of the downtown chaos but only 10 minutes away, with great restaurants and fabulous Happy Hours everywhere.The cottage is beautifully decorated and yet homey, with a lovely yard where we ate, read, etc. daily. Walking and biking through the neighborhood was especially fun since the enclave has its own marina: tennis courts are nearby and a wonderful beach is just across the street.

We stayed three month and were sad to leave.

We come yearly from Michigan to visit our daughter and family. This year we stayed 7 weeks at Sea Horse Cottage. Paul and Lisa were great to work with. The cottage is beautiful, well kept-up, and well supplied. Shopping at Von's, Walmart, and Builders Square is only a couple miles away. Access to the beach, golfing, and sight-seeing was great. It is really a home away from home. We liked it a lot and have rented it again next year!

Clean, comfortable cottage in a wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5

I loved staying at this cottage near the beach and the yacht club! The owners were wonderful to work with and made renting the cottage simple. I was impressed by the cleanliness of the home and the lovely decor. The neighborhood is quiet, clean and seems safe. Best of all was the close proximity of the beach and the boat docks. There were many opportunities to walk and swim and watch the sunrise and set! I highly recommend this cottage as a rental for a couple, two couples or a small family. I hope to stay here again soon!
