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.

Great Rental, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Can't beat this location.... one block to the beach and one block to the Bay. Close to great eateries and drinking holes. Also next to Cheap Rentals (super reasonable rental prices) -- bikes, boogie boards, surf boards, etc. Molly has the rental setup super beachy cute and comfortable. Very clean! She's also got a great book with good information about parking, places to eat, things to do, etc.

Great location for beach time

  • 4 of 5

The property was nice with a few slight quirks. The location for the price can't be beat you are walking distance from the beach and bay as well as several yummy restaurants.

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.
