About the property

Steps to Beach, Restaurants, Shopping and Beach Adventure Activities!

Let the ocean breeze wrap around you as you relax in this bright beach cottage with Air Conditioning. Mere steps to the Bay (perfect for swimming and SUP) and a 1/2 block to the beach, this cottage gives old school vibe with new school amenities- New kitchen, flooring, bathroom, and appliances! This is the ideal location, in the heart of restaurants, coffee shops and stores, but quietly situated away from the noise. The outdoor patio is perfect for people watching with a glass of wine or enjoying your morning coffee.

This cute cottage is a stand-alone house that is perfect for a family or small group. With two bedrooms, 3 beds, a fully stocked kitchen and Uverse TV/Netflix, you will have everything you need for a cozy night in or as a home base for spending time outdoors. Just a note, there is NO parking space with the cottage so a detailed map of surrounding parking areas is provided in the information booklet.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience staying at this cottage. It was only a couple blocks from the beach and Molly had beach chairs, beach towels and boogie boards for us to use. The cottage was nicely decorated and had all the amenities we needed. Molly also had a binder with some great suggestions for restaurants and sightseeing, which we found helpful. The only difficulty was locating a parking spot. However, Molly did offer some ideas of where to park.

Columbus, IN

Mission Beach/Bay area

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to San Diego and we had no clue where to stay. This rental was the perfect location, size, and had an air conditioner!!! I'm from the Midwest and could not believe that air conditioning is rare in the city. Molly was very helpful. One, she made sure the rental was very well stocked. I'm used to having to buy extra trash bags, or hand soap, but she had plenty of everything. She even brought a vacuum so that we could keep sand off of the floor. This rental is right between the bay and the beach, with so many places to walk for eating or coffee. This is also very close to Pacific Beach. I would recommend to any small group.

Great beach cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was wonderful. If you're looking for a great beach cottage that's a little tucked away from the hubbub but still very close to everything this is the place.

Great Location

  • 3 of 5

This was a great little place if you are a college kid on Spring Break. The kitchen and bathroom were both updated nicely and they were clean. The kitchen had everything we needed to make the few meals that we did make. Apparently we were the only ones who followed the "quiet time" rules, as the neighbors behind the house partied very loudly until all hours of the night. The living room is in need of a makeover. The walls need to be painted, and the couch sits very low and is VERY uncomfortable. The carpet needs to be replaced, as it looks dirty and well used. The photographer did a good job of making the house look nice in the pictures. We were pretty disappointed upon arrival!

Owner's Response: I am sorry that you were disappointed with your stay. Spring Break can be hit or miss with the area being quiet at night. Not all vacation rental companies are good at screening their guests and sometimes you get a loud group. Next time I suggest contacting the person you rented from and many times they can contact the owner of the offending vacation rental and get the other group to quiet down. The carpets are scheduled to be cleaned in the beginning of May. The walls will be repainted then too. Spring Break is so busy, we just didn't have time to schedule it until now.
