Great snug hideaway

  • 5 of 5

Just finished a four night stay in Rick's secret cottage. It was delightful--charming, comfortable and quiet. The location is superb. It's near so many of our favorite places to go in San Diego.

We (2) enjoyed a cozy, private retreat. Location ideal for our itinerary and planned destinations.

  • 4 of 5

Cottage provided all amenities and the pleasant surprise of sleeping on a comfortable bed. We appreciated having a nice set-back from the street as well as shade and calm surroundings within city environs. Our host Rick provided timely response to questions prior to arrival and created a handy guest-reference binder. We would love to stay again, schedules permitting, to enjoy more of San Diego’s sights.

Easy to feel Comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

Our overall experience was very enjoyable. Rick's properties are clean, secure, well stocked and conveniently located in a quiet neighborhood. We enjoyed the "Little House" which had its own barbeque and patio area. When we get down to San Diego again, we'll be looking for one of Rick's properties.
