Fantastic location and great hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with my wife and two young kids and loved the location. Old town is a nice neighborhood to eat and walk around. Despite being just steps away from all the action, the place was quiet. The place was clean, comfortable and the hosts were great. I would definitely stay again and recommend the place.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

Great location right in old town. Can walk to everything so seldom need to take out the car. Really nice that there is off street parking.

The cabin is always clean and ready when we arrive. Joan and Dove are very nice and respond quickly to any correspondence. This was our second stay and we will definitely return.

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

Spent 2 months here with my husband ,2 cats and 1 dog. Loved it.

Joan and Dove, mother and daughter team, are the very best! If you need anything they are there otherwise they live you alone to enjoy your privacy .

Excellent location! Right in the middle of Old Town. Great walks through town and tons of restaurants . Highly recommend ! Nice to have a secure parking space, too!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This rental was perfect! The location was a couple minute walk to the heart of Old Town. The cottage was clean, comfortable and well appointed. The kitchen appears to be recently renovated. The bed was comfortable, great water pressure in the shower. And the off-street parking was a must for that area! The outside area, while small, was large enough for our dogs to do their business. It wraps around most of the cottage. I loved that Dove and Joan had a bowl of water, dog treats and a dog bed for our two pooches. They are really very thoughtful (Joan and Dove that is….although are dogs can be thoughtful too LOL)

We had car trouble and did not arrive on the first night of our stay. As no one had reserved the cottage for the day of our departure Dove and Joan very generously offered the cottage to us for an additional night to make up for the night we missed. They really go above and beyond for their guests. We would definitely stay here again!

About Dove Braunstein

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.

Dove Braunstein purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Dove Braunstein 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!

What makes this cottage unique

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!
