Cute and clean beach-themed cottage
We had a lovely weekend stay at the cottage! Very clean and perfect for 1-2 people. Great location- about 15 mins from everywhere we wanted to be in SD. Especially loved the patio and it’s flowers! Only suggestion would be to add a set of silverware to the kitchen. Thanks for a wonderful stay!
Hi Lauren, Thank you for the nice review. We do have a set of silverware tho... It's in 2nd half of the top drawer and has a label "silverware" on the front.
I'm so sorry for the inconvenience.

Comfy Cottage - Centally located
Quiet, clean, comfortable and well appointed. We really enjoyed our stay in this sweet cottage to call home for a week. It is close to all the best San Diego has to offer. Cleanliness is our top priority when staying in VRBOs and this one met our expectations.
Thank you to our hosts, the Gibbons!
My parents visited me from Germany and stayed in the cottage for about two weeks. They absolutely loved it! It was very clean and the decoration was beautiful. The location is great as they could walk to the restaurants and bars that are close by. They will definitely return!
This place was clean, comfortable and very conveniently located. We will be back!
Felt like home - if my home were better decorated
A wonderful space, in a wonderful neighborhood. The cottage is immaculate, inviting, and well-appointed; Karen and John have gone the extra mile to provide a welcoming space for their guests. Their care and attention is much appreciated.
We recommend this without hesitation for anyone visiting San Diego; we will certainly be returning. Our stay here was one of the high points of a fantastic vacation.
Less than 15 minutes to Lindbergh Airport, and SeaWorld! 10 minutes to downtown, Petco Park, Gaslamp and the San Diego convention center, 5 minutes Balboa park and the World famous San Diego Zoo. Many beautiful beaches all just a quick 10-15 minute drive.
