About George and Signe Shinn
I am a third generation Coronado resident, because my 1920's Spanish home was purchased by my Grandparents in 1936. I am a retired aerospace engineer/spec home builder and my wife is a French teacher. Both of us love beautiful architecture, history, and the island life, so we are quite at home here in Coronado. My wife was a hotel Concierge for many years and both of us love to offer recommendations for leisure time in Coronado and San Diego. We met while doing our undergraduate work at the University of Southern California...GO Trojans. I completed a masters in engineering at San Diego State Univ. while Signe went on to graduate studies at Occidental Univ. We have both lived in Southern Calif. most of our lives and have extensive knowledge of the many things the area has to offer.

Love, love, love!
I had an exceptional experience staying at the "cottage", as I called it. First of all, it is simply darling. The decor is so inviting, yet not overstated. It is spacious even with the king bed. The location is so ideal- walk to the beach, ride your bike to the Hotel Del Coronado or the downtown shops! The charm is also found in the outdoor space of the cottage. There is a very large courtyard ideal for morning coffee or early afternoon happy hour. By far, the best part about this stay was the Shinn family. They are truly lovely human beings. They exude calm, soothing energy (probably in part from living at the beach!) They were also always willing to help with ANYTHING! I became so fond of the entire experience that it was very difficult to have to leave. But what a blessing it was to find this sweet cottage. It made my life better that's for sure!
Thank you for choosing us! We loved hosting you and hope you'll be back very soon!
Great place !!
We stayed for a month and couldnt have been any nicer. We were visiting family on Coronado. Outside area was so nice for grilling. No need for a full kitchen here. Was perfect for my husband and I. Thanks again!
Thank you for choosing us! It was a great pleasure to host the two of you and we hope that you will stay with us again soon. We greatly appreciate the perfect condition you left everything in and are glad to here you enjoyed the BBQ. Thank you for the delicious BBQed ribs :)
The apartment was very nice and cozy. George and Signe were great and very welcoming. The only downside is that the kitchenette is very small and if you are going to cook you have to use the BBQ that is provided. Dishes have to be done in the bathroom sink which is also a bit challenging. I had a great stay though, the apartment is comfortable and the courtyard right outside the private entrance is beautiful. I would definitely come back again!
So glad you enjoyed your stay with us! Thank you for leaving everything in great shape and we hope you'll stay with us again. It was a great pleasure being your host and we really enjoyed getting to know you and your husband. The kitchenette's microwave, mini fridge, coffee maker, plus the available gas burner & grill hopefully helped with cooking, as well as the sink ,equipped for handling dishes. Hope you got to try some of Coronado's many restaurants and broad price ranges, though. Sorry we couldn't continue the discount we gave you, but there will be other times that a discount is offered in the future.
We had a delightful stay. The room is lovely and the bed quite comfortable. Our hosts were delightful and so accommodating. The bikes were perfect for riding thru this charming town and the house dog, Kennedy, a sweetheart. We are looking forward to staying with them again next year.
Nice room, Great location
Relaxing backyard, nice and airy room. Less than 10 minute walk to Coronado beach. Owners were very friendly and helpful providing directions and suggestions for places to visit. The inflatable mattress was comfortable. Washing dishes is a little challenging in a smaller sink, but doable. When I travel to San Diego/ Coronado in the future I would like to stay here again.
