Notes:
We rent our beach cruisers for $25 a pair for the week or part thereof. Same with our 2-person kayak. Both are used but in good shape, comfortable and CHEAP! There are plenty of Rental Companies nearby as well for surfboards, paddle boards, etc. The cottage is a duplex and has another unit of exactly the same size, check with us for availability! Both units share the large front patio. There is a one car detached garage (for a compact or midsize car) which is a bonus as parking is very scarce at the beach. The house has central heat for the colder months and a portable air conditioner for the summer.

Great stay in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

House is in a great location. 1 block from the bay and 2 blocks from the ocean. The house was ideal for our small family of four as our kids were able to sleep on the extended couch bed which was very comfortable. Very clean and had everything we needed. We would definitely stay here again.

Great location, quiet and clean!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect place for my husband and I on our vacation. The location was perfect! You are close to the bay side, which is relaxing and quiet. Yet, you are super close to the beach and Belmont Park! We enjoyed all of their amenities like, beach umbrellas, sweet front patio and two beach cruisers. The bikes were $25/per visit! They also have a single car garage which was very important for us! We would definitely come back again!

TERRIFIC COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at your cottage. There was a slight glitch when we arrived, but Karin had the issue resolved very quickly. The kitchen had everything you could need & the entire cottage was very clean & well appointed. So close to the beaches, shopping & dining. So sad that the giant roller coaster was not operating, but is an excuse to return to SD again.

Cheers to Karin, Mark & Maggie. Regards Sandy & Stephen.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

It's down in Mission beach which is old school, in a fun way. The bungalow was clean and comfortable. We rode the bikes most everywhere, probably shouldn't have even gotten a car, or walked. The beach (West) and bay (East) are both one block away and there are chairs in the garage. We personally didn't spend much time in the bungalow because there is lots to do and see. Karin was super nice, helpful and easy to reach. There are plenty of restaurants, bars and shops within a couple of mile radius of the place. We both walked and biked to Pacific Beach and the main drag for restaurants without issue.

Pacific Beach

This area of Central Mission Beach is a peninsula of residences with the Pacific Ocean on the west and Mission Bay to the east. Guests can choose from the busier beach boardwalk full of activity and people watching or the quieter bay boardwalk. Bike riding, rollerblading or strolling are popular activities on either side. The location is fantastic as there is a bus stop on Mission Beach Blvd. which goes to the main transit center. Shopping is also easy as there are many small convenience stores nearby as well as a Ralph's Supermarket and Trader Joe's - each about a mile away. This location is just a 15 minute drive to all main features in San Diego: Sea World, The San Diego Zoo, The Gaslamp Quarter Downtown, La Jolla Cove and Sea Port Village. Our cozy cottage is located just a minute's walk from Belmont Park and the famous roller coaster, as well the Pacific Ocean and three doors down from the sand in Mission Bay.
