About Doug Fremdling

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'.

Doug Fremdling purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Doug Fremdling chose Mission Valley

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.

What makes this cottage unique

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!

Mission Bay Cottage...Perfect!

  • 4 of 5

The MBC was perfect in location and needs for our stay in October! It was close to family we were visiting which was very important and centrally located to all that San Diego has to offer so we could enjoy day trips. The cottage itself had all the amenities we required. We were able to have some of our meals in rather than having to go out to restaurants; WIFI was spot on for days when I had to work; the patio outside afforded us the ability to sit and enjoy the sun during the day. The owners respected our privacy but were available had we needed their services. I would rent the Mission Bay Cottage again on a return trip!

Perfect for our Party of 5

  • 5 of 5

It was me, my husband with our 3 kids (ages 6, 3, 2). Perfect little room with it all. Our kids shared the foldout futon at night. We brought a little foldable table which the kids used to eat when we did eat there, mostly quick breakfast items. We brought bagels w cream cheese and cereal. No tub which could be a deal breaker for families w lil ones but the shower head detaches so we had no problem at all. Overall stay was great for us.

Great place to stay-close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

My two daughters (ages 7 and 10) and I stayed at Mission Bay Cottage for four nights. The location couldn't be beat: in moderate/heavy traffic it was still only 7-9 minutes by car to Sea World, 13-15 minutes to Mission Beach and Belmont Park and 16-18 minutes to Balboa Park and the San Diego zoo.The cottage had a private gate with plenty of free street parking. Finding a parking space was never a problem even on a Saturday night in the summer season. It was also hot so the air conditioning came in very handy in the late afternoon during our afternoon break. There are two comfortable beds (one a futon, the other a queen bed), a flatscreen tv, a small kitchenette area and a nicely remodeled bathroom with a shower. The only minor annoyance was the spotty Wifi inside the cottage which the owner apologized for and is trying to fix. If you are willing to sit outside on the patio, however, the internet is not a problem. Overall definitely a great value for the price! Highly recommended!
