Property type cottage

About the property

Cozy and Captivating: Perfect for friends and families in an ideal location!

This cozy cottage is a stand alone house and, unlike many other beach properties, it is equipped with AIR CONDITIONING and a parking spot big enough for an SUV.

The cottage is currently being remodeled with new furniture, drywall, house siding, etc... It will be absolutely lovely when done. And it was already lovely! New pictures to be posted as available.

This 2-bedroom, 1 bath is perfect for a family or small group of friends. The first bedroom has a comfortable queen bed. The second bedroom has a cute trundle bed that converts into two twin beds.

After an adventurous day surfing or paddle-boarding, you can come home to your Sling TV w/HBO & Netflix so you won't miss your favorite show or game! There is also a small table and chairs outside so you can people watch with your morning coffee or afternoon cocktail-a beach staple.

Unlike other rentals, there is a large parking spot that comes with the house (A huge plus in the summer months when parking is at a premium). Laundry is also available onsite.

We are located in the center of Mission Beach with everything you need only a block or two away. (A large grocery store is about 1/2 mile away.)

-- 1/2 block to the bay

-- 1 1/2 blocks to the beach

-- 1 to 3 blocks away from a few amazing cafes and coffee shops.

-- 1/2 mile to Garnet Ave; which makes up the heart of Pacific Beach, where you can find great shopping, restaurants, bars, coffee shops, Trader Joe's, Vons, a 24 hour fitness, many yoga studios, and much more..

-- 1 block to the nearest bus stop.

-- 1 mile to Historic Belmont Park where you can ride the roller coaster, eat some ice cream, and watch the surfers take a ride on the WaveHouse Flowrider.

-- 3 miles to Sea World

--Less than 9 miles to Downtown San Diego and the Gaslamp Quarter; which provide fun night life and more upscale restaurants and bars.

-- 9 miles to the San Diego Zoo and beautiful Balboa Park.

-- 9 miles to the airport and downtown Amtrak station.

I live close by, so I can stop by easily if anything is needed. I have grown up here in San Diego and look forward to making your stay as memorable and enjoyable as possible. I am more than happy to provide recommendations for delicious restaurants and fun local activities..!

To explore San Diego beyond the Mission and Pacific Beach areas, a car is helpful.

There are bus stops close by that you can take to Downtown and La Jolla.

To get to other parts of town, these car services are very affordable and easy to use:

•Uber – If you do not already have this app on your phone, you will need to download it. Use promotional code s1knl and you will receive 1 free ride up to $10. This will get you most of the way to the airport from the cottage. Enter the code before requesting your first ride..

•Lyft – Again, if you do not already have this app on your phone, you will need to download it. Use promotional code molly1575 and you will receive 1 free ride up to $10. Again, enter the code before requesting your first ride..

If you do need to rent a car, please note that only ONE parking spot is included with the cottage. There is a detailed map of surrounding parking areas in the information booklet should you have a second car.

Perfect location!!

  • 4 of 5

My family of three were comfortable & the location is perfect! One block to Mission Beach, which is sandy and moderate waves. 1.5 blocks to the bay, which is sandy and nice for toddlers since there are zero waves. Located within a 5minute walk to several places to eat, rent equipment, and take surf lessons. From the airport it took us 10minutes to drive there. The Zoo took about 10-12minutes. We arrived past midnight the first night and I had a question of getting inside so I called Molly-- she answered and was so polite. If you like breakfast definitely check out Olive Cafe. If you like pastries and coffee, check out the smaller Olive Bakery.

The only negative comment I can say is that since it's a block from a few local restaurants slash bars, it was a bit noisy from 11-2am. Nothing bad, but just a heads up that you'll hear laughing, music, and singing. The parking spot is small, but we were so happy to have a spot!!. We rented a little ford car and it was a tight fit. There's a washer and dryer, grill, grocery store a mile up the road, and an outdoor shower to rinse all the sand off before coming in. Not that you'll spend a lot of time inside, but there's Roku, Netflix, Sling, and something else.

I highly recommend this cottage and my family will be back again!

Owner's Response: I am so glad you had a lovely stay! I am sorry you couldn't fit your truck in the spot. Many guests have no problem fitting their massive trucks in the spot. It is definitely easier if the disabled spot is open so you can back in. I personally fit a 15 passenger Ford Van in the spot with no issues.

Great spot! As advertised! Only minor disappointments.

  • 4 of 5

Great location, adorable cottage, suitable parking spot, no neighbor noise problems, stone's throw to Better Buzz & bike rentals, super clean and well outfitted... so much to love.

Our 'complaints' are only very minor. 1.) We visited during a cold spell, and spent the first night figuring out how to get the small AC/heater (located in family room) to warm the bedrooms. (Some much appreciated temp settings leeway from Molly helped, and we had it all figured out for the following nights.) 2.) Something should probably be done about the shower head. It kind of squirts a trickle stream at you. You have to run around in the shower to get wet. 3.) Also had a flukey issue w/ the keypad door lock, but Molly was there in no time to rescue us! Overall, a great place at a great price! Thanks Molly!

Cute older home with nice updates.

  • 4 of 5

This vacation home has an excellent location, midway between the bay and the ocean. It had many updates that you would find in newer homes in the kitchen and bath. The kitchen was supplied with nice dishes, pots and pans and small appliances. Plenty of towels were provided plus the medicine cabinet was stocked with items that are accidentally left at home: toothpaste and brush, soap, bandaids, etc. It also included 1 parking space which is worth its weight in gold. Overall, this was a great home!

Perfect place for a family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This location is perfect. It takes less than 5 minutes to walk to either the bay or to the ocean. The cottage is super clean and well stocked. Things like towels and toilet paper were the same quality of stuff I would stock in my own house. The upgrades to the kitchen and bathroom are really nice. The parking space would be tight if you had a giant SUV, but we had a Jeep Renegade and it was fine. The washer and dryer were better quality than a lot of the VRBO places we have stayed. There were plenty of beach toys available. The TV system and wifi worked great. We loved the Buzzed coffee shop and Olive Cafe, which are both less than a 5 minute walk from the cottage. I would definitely recommend this place!
