About the property

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

Let the ocean breeze wrap around you as you relax in this newly renovated (2015) 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

The house was nice and cozy. Kitchen had everything for our needs. Very comfortable couch! Loved that we could walk 10 feet and hit a street full of bars and restaurants. The beach and the bay were a minutes walk away. Would definitly stay here again! Just wish there was a full size mirror in at least one room. But that's just personal preference ;)

Mission Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The property was VERY clean and close to the beach, restaurants and bars. Way better than staying at a hotel because you can cook/grill out and the owner is flexible with check in/out times

Great place to stay on Mission Beach

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented this cottage for our week long vacation in Mission Beach. The place was very clean, well organized, and outfitted with almost everything we needed for our stay. We had 5 adults staying in this cottage, and while it is on the small side, we were very comfortable. Molly was great at getting all the information we needed ahead of time to get us to the property and was very responsive to any questions we had. The location of this cottage is excellent. We were within walking distance from more restaurants, shops, bars, and attractions than we could see in a week. Overall, it was a clean, quiet place to stay that was close to everything.

Perfect as pictured!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at this adorable little cottage!! We only had a few days to get away during our teenage daughter's Spring Break and this was perfect! It was exactly as pictured! The location was great...sits right in between the bay and the beach. We literally went to the beach for a few hours to lay in the sand, walked to the cottage for lunch and then out to the bay to rent a boat and go play on the water for while!! We would absolutely stay in Molly's cottage again!! She made sure that everything was just right for us...Molly is great to work with!!

Outstanding Location and Perfect for a Family

  • 4 of 5

This location is literally a minute's walk to the bay or the beach. If you're traveling in March, the beach side will be breezy and chilly. The bayside is calmer and warmer. The house is great, with bunkbeds for the kids and a couch that easily sleeps one or two smaller people. The house has Netflix, which was perfect for unwinding after a long day at the beach for the kids. It's also near several restaurants, coffee shops, bars, and rental stores for beach gear. The house has towels for guest to go to the beach, along with one beach chair. The kitchen has all of the necessities for cooking and preparing meals. There is no laundry machines or dryers, but there is a laundromat nearby if you have to wash some clothes.

The only drawbacks are the parking, which is tricky upon arrival. There are temporary parking spots right next to the house to unload your luggage, but they are often occupied. After driving around for a bit, I simply stopped in the ally and helped the family unload the luggage. We ended up parking the vehicle at the nearby Santa Clara Point Recreational Center. It's a short walk, but easy to do if you're not hauling luggage. The master suite's bed wasn't the most comfortable bed and the noise from the nearby watering holes and traffic is pretty constant. It's not the quietest place to stay, but we would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in Mission Beach with all of the amenities of home. Thank you Molly for letting us use your beach cottage. The memories will last a lifetime.

Fantastic place!

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful place to stay. it's affordable, cozy, and a block away from the beach. especially at the price, there were wonderful unexpected small touches -- lots of towels readily available, and a set of blankets neatly rolled in a basket in the living room. the owner left a note with her phone number in case of mishaps, and one of the best notebooks filled with all sorts of information, from restaurants to activities to laundry and parking, that I've seen at a vrbo. my one concern was parking -- the house is in a courtyard, and does not come with a parking spot. it was no trouble at all. we were able to park nearby, and even right outside the house, with very little trouble. this is a great place to stay. i highly recommend it.
