Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Jim is a professor of Family Medicine and Public Health at UCSD. He researches physical activity and exercise, and he enjoys biking, jogging, and walking around Pacific Beach and Mission Bay. Jim grew up in Mississippi, and has lived in Pacific Beach since 1983. I know you will love it. I would like to welcome you to our cottage and our wonderful neighborhood. Being a professor who travels extensively, I understand the value of a home-like atmosphere when away from home. I also understand the needs of academics. So we hope you will stay at the PB Cottage if you are a visiting scholar or are spending your sabbatical at UCSD or SDSU. The PB Cottage is also great for families bringing your children to San Diego for Sea World, the Zoo, the Safari Park, and Legoland.

Why the Owner Chose Pacific Beach, San Diego, CA, USA:
We are thrilled with the beach cottage we bought the summer of 2013. We feel lucky that we found the Cottage, because it was recently completely renovated and upgraded. We have continued to make upgrades on the furniture and appliances. We make sure it has everything you need for a family vacation, extra-special sabbatical, or very comfortable business trip. The PB Cottage is the complete package. We know you will quickly feel like the Cottage is your home. And everything you want or need is very close by. You can walk or bike to everything that PB has to offer. You can try a different restaurant every evening, surf every day, jog or bike on the world famous boardwalk. Mission Bay is a huge park with unlimited recreation amenities, just minutes away. There is 12-mile biking and walking route that goes all the way around the Bay, with virtually no traffic to spoil your relaxation. If you get tired of having fun, you can chill out or work at the Cottage. Though we encourage walking and biking so you can appreciate PB, a car is needed to get around San Diego. The Cottage has convenient off-street parking on the alley, so you never have to look for parking. Vacationing in condominiums is fine, but they lack the charm of your own Cottage. If you want quiet and privacy, this is the place for you. If you want to be near the action of Pacific Beach, the Cottage also is the place for you.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
When you see the PB Cottage you will first fall in love the white picket fence. Beyond that lies the front yard, the patio, and then the pastel colored Cottage itself. When you go inside you see the open living room, dining area, and kitchen. It feels larger than a one-bedroom cottage. A special feature is the picture window in the living room and the sliding glass door in the dining area. The room is filled with light, so you can see how clean everything is. We were impressed with the beautiful new tile mosaic pattern on the kitchen wall, and we think you will love it. The kitchen is ready to go, with all the supplies needed for cooking and dining. All you need to do is walk or drive 3 blocks to the supermarket for the food you want, and Trader Joe's is just one more block. When you go into the bedroom, you will see the new Queen bed looks comfortable, inviting, and ready to help you recover from your trip. You will be surprised by how much storage there is, with built in drawers and shelves. The bathroom has all new fixtures and all the supplies you need, including soap and small shampoos to get you started. Now you are ready to go back outside to tour the patio. You will be happy to see the gas barbeque that is easy to use. Once your food is perfectly cooked you can dine outdoors with the table and chairs. While you are relaxing your children can play in the fenced-in yard. It is small but beautiful and safe. If you have traveled much, you know that washing clothes can be a time consuming hassle. Not at the PB Cottage. There is a new washer and dryer onsite, so you don't have to find a laundromat and waste time there. You can wash while you are relaxing or cooking dinner. We could go on and on about the PB Cottage, but I think you get the idea. It's fully furnished, clean, and spacious. And it's in one of the best neighborhoods in the whole USA. Come and enjoy it.
