About the Property

Beautiful stand alone cottage in garden setting- Sleeps 4 with private entrance.

The Mission Bay Cottage is a comfortable, yet stylish studio. It comes completely furnished with vinyl hardwood flooring and double paned windows. It is perfect for travelers looking to have their own personal space during their trip. It is private and quite and has many amenities to offer. Many of our guests don't want to leave!

The Cottage is a detached unit that comes with your own private entrance and garden setting. It is a single room or 'studio' and has French doors that open up into the Cottage. There are two beds. One is a memory foam queen size bed and the other is a premium full size futon that also doubles as a couch. The futon mattress has just been upgraded to a new memory foam mattress. It is super comfortable for both sitting and sleeping.

Cable TV and Wireless Internet are included at no extra cost.

There is a breakfast bar complete with bar stools and a table that can expand to give you more table top space. The kitchen is complete with a microwave, 2 electric burners, a large 'George Foreman' grill, a mini-refrigerator, toaster, small coffee maker, dishes and pots & pans as well as many other kitchen utensils. There is also and Iron and Ironing Board for those who need it.

Smoking: There is absolutely no smoking of any kind inside the Cottage - no exceptions.

BEACH vs BAY... The Cottage is 1 block east of the 5 freeway. We are walking distance to Mission Bay and Fiesta Island. The Bay has grass, playgrounds, pavilions, and sand, but little or no waves. There is a sidewalk that will take you around the entire bay that will give you breathtaking views of the Bay as well as the beautiful houses and boats that line the walkway. The Bay is great for kids as there is plenty to do with plenty of bathrooms nearby. While the Bay is walking distance from the Cottage, the beaches are not.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Hello, my name is Doug and I was raised in Pasadena, CA.. I came to live in San Diego after high school. I graduated from USD with a degree in Philosophy and a minor in Business. I am a commercial real estate agent at Capital Real Estate Ventures and got my start with Marcus and Millichap in August of 1997. I live with my wife, Kathy, and our 2 Labrador retrievers that I affectionately call my 'fur persons'.

Why the Owner Chose Morena, San Diego, CA, USA:
When I saw this property, I loved the views and the Cottage in the backyard. The views included Mission Bay from the east, Downtown San Diego, southern La Jolla and Pt. Loma all from our front porch. During the 4th of July, we can see 5 different fireworks shows and in the summer we get the SeaWorld fireworks directly in front of our house.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The Cottage features a tranquil garden setting with colorful roses, winding pathways and a private entrance. The Entrance to the backyard is accessed from the side yard. The side gate opens with a security code. There are two sitting areas outside so you can soak up the sun. We have solar panels and our winding pathways are made from re-purposed concrete found all over our neighborhood. We do have two large Labrador retrievers that are extremely well behaved. They are both very sweet and very mellow dogs that have never given our guests any issues. Kids love them!
