                                                            Great beach house! 3 houses from the beach!


                                                            Great beach house for a family! Three houses from the beach, so we could easily go back and forth to the beach. We could walk or ride bikes (provided at the house) to so many places to eat that we didn't have to use the car. Loved sitting by the fire pit in the evening. The decor is so nice and fresh, the inside felt very clean and tidy. The house had beach chairs, lots of beach toys and towels too! The owner was very quick to reply when I texted her. Would not hestitate to stay again!

                                                            Kristina W.

                                                            Stayed here for a relaxing getaway with the kids. This place was adorable and had everything we needed. The outside deck was my favorite I loved getting cozy by the fire pit at night & listening to the waves! You can really tell they take pride in making their guests feel welcome! We will definitely be back again. Thank you for everything!

                                                            This was our second time renting Stella's Cottage and it was even better than the first. Lisa was very prompt in all responses to questions and welcoming us. We took our two young boys with us and they loved the indoor and outdoor toys that are provided. All the gear you need is present and they have thought of mostly everything. Great location that is a short walk to the beach and to the better restaurants/locations on Mission Beach. Two areas of opportunity for Lisa: 1) get an outdoor rated rug for the patio, the rain we had while there left the current one wet the entire time we were there, 2) allow a slightly later check out than 10am. Minor areas for what otherwise was a great return stay - I think we'll be back for a third.

                                                            Everything you need

                                                            We had a lovely stay at Stella's. It was clean, comfortable and charming. Close to the beach and once my husband got the hang of parking all was good. Loved having a washer and dryer onsite with a little one that goes through multiple outfits in a day. Owners were easy to work with. Would definitely recommend.

                                                            Owner's Response:

                                                            Yes, parking is never easy in Mission

                                                            Beach with the narrow alleys and driveways. The tandem parking is a tight fit but doable and easier, like you say, once you get a hang of it. It's rare and a definite luxury to have 2 parking spaces for one house. We're glad you and you family had a great vacation. Please come back soon and we appreciate the review.!

                                                            OMG...and You all know what that means!

                                                            OMG.......Stella's Cottage was an absolute gem....and Lisa had everything prepared for our stay from gift bags for the girls to soft bedding and linens and cooking items, beach bicycles, towels, ...too many things to name but We felt as if this were in our own home. I was able to prepare appetizer's and snacks for my guests and sip wine under the stars. We thoroughly enjoyed the patio and fire pit every night....strolls up and down the boardwalk just steps away from the cottage and ocean. I especially enjoyed the peacefulness of Stella's Cottage while sleeping in the comfy beds. If it is serenity yo are looking for, this is the place. And the sunsets and sound of the waves against the shoreline were to die for. If you hesitate to stay at Stella's Cottage you will never know its tranquility.

                                                            Owner's Response:

                                                            It's great to know you enjoyed your stay, relaxed and experienced the true tranquility and peacefulness of Stella's Beach Cottage. This is truly our goal for all of our guest! We appreciate you and your family being such great guest and hope you return again soon!
