About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 5

It's always sunny in San Diego - particularly when you're staying in this cheery yellow cottage on Mission Bay! Just 100 feet from the bay in the artsy North Mission Beach neighborhood, this adorable San Diego vacation rental is the perfect way to experience the laid-back Mission Beach lifestyle.

Walk to the ocean beach or the bay, take a surf lesson at the nearby surf school, walk or bike the two waterfront boardwalks, and relax into neighborhood life. You're close to lots of great restaurants, shops and food markets, so you'll never have to venture far from home. But if you do want to venture to downtown San Diego, SeaWorld, or the San Diego Zoo, they're all just minutes away.

Feel right at home when you pass through the white picket fence into this home's spacious front patio, complete with a patio table set with umbrella and a gas grill. Inside, a cozy open living space has everything you need for a relaxing stay, with a plush microfiber queen-size sleeper sofa and a flatscreen TV with cable and DVD for movie nights, and a fully equipped kitchen for the evenings you want to cook at home. Internet is also included.

With two bedrooms and two full bathrooms, four guests can sleep here comfortably, but you're welcome to bring up to the maximum occupancy of five guests. A master bedroom with its own private entrance offers a queen bed, a wall-mounted TV, and a full bathroom. The second bedroom features two twin beds.

With so many amenities and so much to do in this fantastic beach neighborhood, you might not need to venture far from home, but the lovely city of San Diego has a lot to offer should you desire to take in the excellent beer, wine and food scenes, the bevy of beautiful beaches and boardwalks, or the local sports like golf and baseball.

Whether you spend your days at the beach, in the surf, cozying up in the cottage, or exploring the city, this cute little Southern California vacation rental is the perfect home away from home for your next sunny vacation!

About Vacasa, CA - San Diego County Office

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.



Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family���s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.



Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

Very comfortable

  • 4 of 5

Smaller than I thought. Parking was small but our Durango fit, backing in worked best. But house was cozy, clean, comfortable and accommodating to our weekend getaway. :) We loved the big patio for BBQing. Staff was wonderful, easy to work with. We would stay there again.

We've rented a number of homes on Mission Beach and this is among the very, very best. Clean, convenient, cozy and comfy. Our LandCruiser had enough space in the parking spot, the neighborhood was extremely friendly, the location couldn't be better and Ana was exceptionally responsive. We are DEFINITELY returning!!!

Sweet Little Retreat

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed staying at the Yellow Cottage. We wanted a place close to the beach and bay and we were not disappointed. We walked to the shore and boardwalk daily...spent time playing in the water and enjoying the beautiful sunsets! The nearby eatery The Olive Baking Company served up great food and coffee with a smile.

The street was at times very busy and noisy, and parking was tricky!

Overall, we enjoyed the Yellow Cottage and appreciate the opportunity to have stayed there.

The cottage was cute and clean.

  • 4 of 5

This property is located so close to the bay , and beach. A big plus. It is a little noisy and the traffic is pretty heavy on the through street. Love that this properties location is within walking distance to boardwalks, stores and restaurants.

Perfect location, perfectly comfortable place

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time on our 3 night stay with another couple. Great accommodations and everything was exactly as stated. If we're ever back in town, I'll definitely look to see if The Yellow Cottage is available first!

Darling cottage

  • 5 of 5

Clean, tidy, functional, nicely decorated, well stocked including a bag of ice in the freezer (dishes, cups, toaster, blender, etc.), and had washer/dryer. Great little patio with a partial view of the bay which is literally 100 steps away. It is on a corner and we enjoyed watching all the people walking back and forth to the bay. Busy neighbor that quiets down late in the day. Used beach chairs for sitting in the shade overlooking the bay. Comfy beds. Ana, Property Manager, accessible and friendly. Great location with eateries around the corner. Ocean side was a pleasant 3 block walk.
