Perfect location! I would definitely stay here again!

  • 5 of 5

This tiny house is adorable! Be warned though, it's very small. We didn't spend a ton of time in the house, so it didn't get too cramped feeling too often. The beds were super comfy, the shower is full sized with great water pressure, and the location is SUPERB! Our garbage disposal went out and Molly was there within hours to fix it! I would definitely stay here again!

Great location, great cottage, and great times!

  • 5 of 5

Molly was such a wonderful host! She had everything perfectly set up for our arrival. Once inside all the items you may need were easily found with all the labeled cabinets. The cottage had a great day bed as well as a comfortable bedroom. The location was probably the best part! Steps from the main street and beach! We were able to easily walk to anywhere we needed to be. Along for the getaway was my golden retriever who had plenty of fun at the beach and bay! My boyfriend and I will be coming back. Highly recommend this place.

Had a great time!

  • 5 of 5

Loved our little cottage, great weekend getaway. Bed was super comfy and the trundle bed was great to watch TV on and relax. Nice neighbors and super close to the boardwalk and bay. Both great for relaxing seeing the sand and water. Great local eateries. Thanks for the great stay!

Cozy spot in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

The place was perfect for my husband and I. The location is awesome - just a couple blocks from the beach and bay! Right across the street from Mission beach and just a couple minutes on a cruiser bike to the heart of Pacific beach. The only negative is the lack of parking but it is definitely managable. We had to move the car quite a bit (different parking rules on the street and in certain parking lots) but it was ok and not a bad walk back to the rental. Lots of local coffee shops, cafes, bars and restaurants within walking distance! Definitely would go back!

Perfect place for a beach vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed at Molly's rental for five days and absolutely loved it! It was the perfect size for the two of us, the furniture and appliances are clean and new. Having a kitchen was so convenient to save a little money on eating out all the time, and Molly has provided all the kitchen supplies you could need. It is the perfect location, just a short walk to either the beach or Bay. Molly was so sweet and prepared a binder full of helpful tips about parking, restaurants for any area you would want to go to in San Diego, as well as attractions. She was also very available for anything we needed during our stay. We look forward to coming back soon!
