Overview

About the property

2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom (plus 1 bed, 1 bath)

**LISTED PRICE PER NIGHT IS FOR THE MAIN HOUSE ONLY, 2 BEDROOMS (SLEEPS FOUR). IF YOU ALSO WANT USE OF THE GARDEN ANNEXE (KING & ENSUITE BATHROOM, SLEEPS 2), THE CHARGE IS AN ADDITIONAL $75/NIGHT. ANNEXE NOT AVAILABLE SEPARATELY**

Welcome to our detached 1926 cottage, recently remodeled to a very high standard and was offered in 2014 for the first time as a holiday rental.

The main house has 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 4, and the garden annex, available for an extra fee, has 1 king bedroom and ensuite bathroom, sleeps 2. The garden annex is not let out separately.

The cottage is quietly situated in the heart of all the attractions of North Park, an area of San Diego which Forbes magazine wrote and is home to craftsman cottages, cafes and diners, coffee shops, several microbreweries, boutiques, and the north park farmers market. The North Park theater and the Ray Street Arts District are also bastions of creativity in the area, and close by are Balboa Park and San Diego Zoo, while the beaches, and sights of downtown, are a short ride away.

This spacious fully air conditioned home has all modern amenities such as widescreen HD TV with generous Cox cable package and free wifi internet. The beds, mattresses and bedding are all brand new, and the new furniture is offset by several vintage mid-century modern pieces in the bedrooms and living area. The large chef’s kitchen includes a 5-burner stove, oven and broiler, and integrated microwave. The large refrigerator has an integrated ice machine

We are sure you will love having this home as your base for your San Diego vacation.

About Derek Pople

We bought this cottage as a holiday home and to be close to our daughter and family who live in North Park San Diego. We are English and can only stay part of the year in the US so we offer the cottage for rental at other times.

Derek Pople purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Derek Pople chose San Diego

The cottage was built in the 1920s and has lots of character and original features, which attracted us. It is also very conveniently situated close to Balboa Park and all the great amenities of North Park, and we can walk everywhere. The climate in San Diego is amazing and we enjoy escaping from the English winters there.

North Park Cottage

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is located in the North Park neighborhood of San Diego, an area known for its tacos and beer. Not disappointed in either of those - had good reasonably priced food and beer every day. The neighborhood is characterized by small cottages on small lots, some of the larger craftsman homes built in the early 1900's. The area retains a lot of integrity and the house we stayed in has been nicely preserved. A tasteful kitchen remodel with upgraded appliances and countertops much appreciated. It was comfortable for three grownups, four is pushing it, as the trundle bed in the second bedroom is really more suited for kids. Fans and air conditioning kept indoor temperature cool. Lots of people on the street in the early morning and evening, quiet neighborhood.

Lovely Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the North Park Cottage was a great one. The home was just as pictured and a good size for our family. There were several places to eat within walking distance and many not far by car either. It was also convenient to have a driveway to park as most all the hotels in San Diego charge a daily fee to park. We were able to connect to the Wi-Fi easily and cable TV was also available (although we didn't watch much TV). We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely return to the cottage. Derek and his daughter Caroline were very helpful and easy to work with.

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

The North Park Cottage was exactly what we were looking for (and exactly how it is shown on the photos). Derek was excellent to work with and was very quick to answer our questions and help us out with anything we needed. I can not say enough about his helpfulness. The cottage was in a perfect location for us - close to downtown (only about 5 minutes away) but yet far enough away that we were away from the hustle and bustle. We rented a car (which I would recommend) and used the cottage as our home base. We were able to travel to the many different sites with ease from this location. The cottage was cute, cozy and perfectly fit our needs. The back patio was a great place to grill out and eat dinner. The front porch was a great place to sit with a glass of wine in the evening. The cottage is located in a very quiet neighborhood with very little traffic and no street noise. The location is close to a lot of great coffee shops and restaurants (we tried different ones each day) many of which are within a 5 to 10 block walk. And when we did cook at the cottage, all of the supplies that we needed were there. When we go back, this will be the place we will stay at. Thank you Derek for all of your help and opening up your cottage doors for us.
