About the property

Cottage, 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!

*Please note that all guests must be 25 or older unless accompanied by a parent or legal guardian!

About Vacasa of San Diego County

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!

Best beach house

  • 5 of 5

Our weekend stay here was perfect! We got married on the beach and had our reception at MBWC about 10 steps away from The Yellow Cottage and it made everything sooooo much easier and convienant. The patio is huge and perfect. The inside is so cute! Beds comfy. Clean. The only downside is no A.C. so it was hot but we left all the windows open and fans on so it cooled it down. Def would stay again

San Diego trip

  • 4 of 5

The Yellow Cottage was a nice place to stay for our short vacation. It is in a great location. We would have left 5 stars if the Yellow Cottage had air conditioning, other than that, it was a very pleasant place to stay for a few days.

The location can’t be beat. 50 feet from Mission Bay for kayaking and sailing. 300 feet from Mission Beach for skateboarding and surfing. Great patio too!
