About Miles Hughes

My name is Miles Hughes and I first came down to San Diego in 2000 to attend Point Loma Nazarene University. I fell in love with the area and haven't left since. I manage a hand full of friends and families properties in the area and am currently looking to invest in some properties of my own. 'Shore Thing Cottage' and 'Sea Esta Cottage' are family owned since 2002 when I lived in one of the cottages during I know first hand what a wonderful place to stay they both are! They have recently been renovated and rented as Vacation Homes for the past couple of years.

Miles Hughes purchased this house in 2002

Why Miles Hughes chose San Diego County

These Cottages were chosen based on location, location, location!

What makes this house unique

Hands down the best benefit of this home is the BEACH! I love being able to wake up, grab a cup of coffee and walk out to the boardwalk to watch the surf and multitude of people. The boardwalk is one of the best places to people watch, you have characters who have been going up and down it for years just to amuse people such as 'slo-mo,' the guy who listens to opera while rollerblading in slow motion. And you can't beat a siesta on the hammock or a BBQ with friends and family on the patio.


Very Good! 4.2/5 -

Perfect Location for Holiday Getaway with the Kids

  • 4 of 5

After having a previously reserved location fall through with a Different company, I was scrambling to find a new location to take my family too during Christmas Break. After sending messages to different properties, Miles responded while on his vacation, and reservations were made. We had a group of 8, but 2 of those were small children. We managed to find room to put everyone, and to our surprise there were extra air mattresses in the closet we were able to use. It's so nice to prepare my morning bagel and Orange Juice and walk to the boardwalk a mere 50 yards (or less) and watch the ocean. It was a great location, and one that my kids will remember always.

The property had a nice collection of DVDs that we watched while we were there, and the WiFi works great. Parking is really tight, definitely not room enough for that big SUV or Pickup. We had a Min Van, and it was tight getting in and out. Next door neighbors helped on two occasions to navigate the light poles, cars and buildings to successfully park. The kitchen is lightly appointed, so make sure to bring those little extras you might need if you plan on cooking there. We had a great time, and would consider renting this location again.

721 Ormond Mission Beach

  • 4 of 5

Location is perfect if you like to walk or bike. Steps to beach or bay. Bike Rental "Cheap Rentals" across Mission Blvd and one block north. Very nice, easy accommodating. Uber for other like Sunset Cliffs at sunset - a must see. Bike to Pacific Beach end and watch hundreds of surfers up to 200 yds out. Beautiful sunsets as well. House tidy and clean, small and comfortable however, a bit worn- delayed maintenance in some areas. You will want to buy water!! Miles perfectly accommodating and responsive. Wonderful visit overall.

Close to beach, clean, comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location: 3 houses away from the beach, a block from a few restaurants. Everything was as described except there were zero pantry items available. No salt, pepper, oil. All vrbos I have stayed in have had a few pantry items, some have had a lot, including ketchup and mustard in the refrigerator. Parking was appreciated and very tight. I would have liked a regular chair to sit in, as the comfy couches were low and the kitchen chairs were high. Nice box of beach gear outside, and we made use of the large umbrella and beach chair(one was broken). Appreciated the use of beach towels. We enjoyed our stay!

Fun Beach Bungalow

  • 4 of 5

We loved being so close to the beach at this rental. The first couple days we went without a car, and while the walk to the grocery store was less than a mile, it was a lot for little kids. The rental is close to several restaurants and bars. It got a little noisy one of the nights with Spring Breakers moving into their rentals late at night, but we slept great while we were there, and enjoyed cooking several of our own meals. One of the main reasons we like to rent properties that have a kitchen is that we really like to cook, and the kitchen was lacking some things that would have been nice, like a corkscrew and the can opener did not work very well. The beds were cozy, there were plenty of extra blankets and pillows, there were a couple of beach towels there and I loved the fact that when you came out of the rental and got on the sidewalk to the beach, the smell of eucalyptus was everywhere!

Thank you, Miles!

Enjoyable stay, but a bit warm

  • 4 of 5

A birthday celebration brought us to San Diego for a long weekend. We had 2 couples, which was a good fit for the space. This is a great location for beach access (steps away!), plus it was on a part of the beach that wasn't overcrowded, but still walking distance from delicious restaurants. We also had one parking spot (best for smaller cars). While we only stayed in Sea Esta Cottage, it seems like a great fit for a bigger group taking up the whole rental. The downside for us was the heat wave that occurred during our stay in October. Unfortunately, it was very warm in the unit, even with the fans on and windows open at night.
