About the property

Our newly renovated 4-cottage compound is perfect for large families or groups.

*Please make sure to check out our house rules at the bottom of this description page before deciding to book*

Our newly renovated 4-cottage compound is the perfect choice to accommodate large groups traveling together and wishing to stay on the same property. Comprised of 4 separate cottage-apartments on the same property, the homes are located 1 block from Pacific Beach, and each apartment comes completely equipped with everything you could need for your stay (cooking equipment, extra bedding, towels, cleaning equipment and basic bath products)

7 Bedrooms (8 Beds)

4 Queen Size Beds

3 Full Size Beds

1 Twin Bed

1 Queen Sofa Bed

3 Full Size Couches

4 Kitchens

4 Bathrooms/Showers

Free Street Parking

Drive-way for Parking

Additionally, all of the homes are connected by a center courtyard with patio seating and a propane grill for outdoor cooking.

There is tons of space for hanging out in the central courtyard to BBQ if you want to have a night in, and 5-minute walk that's super close to multiple Pacific Beach restaurants and bars if you'd like to hit the town. Perfect for large families and groups. The apartment is ideally close to attractions, but quietly tucked away. Additionally, the separate cottage-apartments are great for people who are traveling together but also may want some privacy as well.

Please note that the property does not have air conditioning, but you won't need it being so close to the beach.

Best location in all of Pacific Beach (PB) and minutes to La Jolla, Mission Beach, Ocean Beach and only 12 minutes to Sea World, 15 minutes to Old Town and Mission Valley/Fashion Valley, Qualcomm Stadium and 20 minutes to Downtown/Gaslamp District.

You can walk to the beach, restaurants, bars, shopping in less than a minute!


~This property attracts large groups, and in our experience, large groups are more likely to leave our property excessively messy, damaged and the recipient of noise complaints from our neighbors. That being said, we have beefed up our house rules due to the rising number of incidents and noise complaints.

~Please don't take the tone of our house rules personally. At the same time, these are all legitimate issues we are keeping an eye on closely with every group.

~We will be thoroughly reviewing the property after each group leaves and will have to charge for any extra cleaning hours accumulated (over the 6 hours included with your cleaning fee), or damage to our property.

~We do not allow bachelor or bachelorette parties.

~We do not tolerate parties. In addition, please note: *ANY noise complaints from neighbors will result in the forfeit of your security deposit.*

~We ask that your group be mindful of how you leave the property. We suggest to do a general "sweep" before you leave, where you are to pick up excessive trash, cigarette butts, etc - and take out all foodstuffs that will leave a smell inside the house to the trash cans. If you leave the place trashed, we will likely need to bill you for extra hours spent cleaning above and beyond the 6 included hours accounted for by our existing cleaning fee. Additional cleaning hours are priced at 30 dollars per hour.

~If your group does a lot of cooking, please be prepared to clean up after the mess. If there are any food remnants left behind or any excessive mess left as a result of cooking or food particles left on the stove, counters, floors, etc - we will charge a $35 extra cleaning fee. Please take out all foodstuffs to the trash cans behind the property so that there is no smell left behind. There are cleaning supplies underneath the sink for your use.

~ We have provided makeup towelettes for your convenience, please do NOT use our hand towels or washcloths to remove any makeup, as it ruins them. Please pass this along to all females in your group :)

Thank you for reviewing our house rules. We appreciate your cooperation thoroughly!!

Pets may be allowed - please ask.

Great space, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We really had a great time at this rental. We traveled with several families, and had a few young kids. This was perfect because the courtyard is gated so the kids kids could run around and explore safely. But we all had our separate houses to settle in at night. We did a lot of cooking here and the only complaint I have is the kitchens are tiny with very old appliances. Not ideal for cooking a large meal for a group. Other then that everything was great, being just a short walk to the beach.

Property was clean and quaint, but not suitable for 20 people

  • 3 of 5

Everything was clean and tidied up upon arrival. My only qualm with this property is that it states it sleeps 20, I would say comfortable it fits 15. Furthermore if it is supposed to sleep 20 and you have access to a courtyard then neighbors and the land lady should know there will be higher than normal volumes. It's 20 people gathering in a small outdoor space, and sound travels. The constant complaining from the land lady about our noise definitely put a damper on our stay at the location.

Worked well for our family

  • 5 of 5

The set up of the 4 houses worked well for our family and we liked the courtyard area in the middle. The location was great, as we were in walking distance to the beach and restaurants. We would stay there again.

Very Disappointing

  • 1 of 5

The first line in the property description states the units have been newly renovated, perhaps one room was renovated. These units are shabby and poorly maintained. The photos do not reflect the condition of the units - I wish we could post our photos. We arrived with tired young children and the property was not ready for us until 6pm (check in was 4pm). One unit had no electricity - which was fixed the next day. This was only the start. Here is my email to the property manager on day 2 of our vacation:


Glad that the electricity problem was solved. The housekeeper was very concerned about all of the problems, very apologetic, and worked very hard to get everything in order. She could not have been nicer. However we were not able to settle into our rooms until 6 pm. We had screaming babies with no place to sleep.

There remain some additional problems.

Although the units are now clean we feel that the general condition of the units is poor. There are multiple defects in walls and baseboards and wood trim, cabinet doors that are hard to open and close. It would be nice to have clocks in the bedrooms, and more hangers in the closets. A bar of soap and a sponge to clean the bathroom sink would be nice. Apple TV is very annoying to use and set up - understand that it saves the owner a cable TV fee but not good for the renters.

Unit 1

cracked window in living room

broken dresser drawer that is taped shut

broken blind in living room

bathroom drain drains exceedingly slowly (needs to be fixed) and cannot be closed

closet has no door, shelves and very few hangers

Unit 2

broken shade in living room

bathtub drain needs repair, tub does not drain well

towel rod in bathroom fell off the wall

bathroom fixtures are rusty

Our 6' 3" son-in-law can hardly fit on the toilet because of the way the sink is situated - encroaching into the toilet space.

cleaning not finished until almost 6 pm - made for a very difficult time with tired children.

Unit 3

toaster is broken

bedroom light does not work

garage door does not lock

tumbler to house is loose and rotates

Unit 4

no electricity until 6 pm

not cleaned until next day


The next day there was a swarm of termites in one unit, latch on gate was falling off, loose wall electrical outlet, bathroom shelf fell down, bathroom tub drain continued to be almost impossible to use, and exterior paint & stucco peeling in many spots.

We were glad to leave

Great Place For a Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

We rented the 4-plex for an extended family vacation. We loved that each family had their own home and we could all meet up in the common courtyard. We also liked how convenient it was to the beach. The downside is that Mission Boulevard can be a bit noisy but the location and convenience made it worthwhile.
