About Miles Hughes

My name is Miles Hughes and I first came down to San Diego in 2000 to attend Point Loma Nazarene University. I fell in love with the area and haven't left since. I manage a hand full of friends and families properties in the area and am currently looking to invest in some properties of my own. 'Shore Thing Cottage' and 'Sea Esta Cottage' are family owned since 2002 when I lived in one of the cottages during I know first hand what a wonderful place to stay they both are! They have recently been renovated and rented as Vacation Homes for the past couple of years.

Miles Hughes purchased this house in 2002

Why Miles Hughes chose Mission Beach

These Cottages were chosen based on location, location, location!

What makes this house unique

Hands down the best benefit of this home is the BEACH! I love being able to wake up, grab a cup of coffee and walk out to the boardwalk to watch the surf and multitude of people. The boardwalk is one of the best places to people watch, you have characters who have been going up and down it for years just to amuse people such as 'slo-mo,' the guy who listens to opera while rollerblading in slow motion. And you can't beat a siesta on the hammock or a BBQ with friends and family on the patio.

Phenomenal location! Cute cottage.

  • 4 of 5

I spent over two months at this delightful cottage. I traveled alone and had the luxury of spending nights in both bedrooms. The master bed is very comfortable as are the twin beds. I never longed for hot water as the shower works very nicely and quickly. The unit can get cold at night, thankfully extra blankets were provided. I also found the unit to be cool during the day. I never needed AC in all of April. The proximity to the beach is incredible--four properties away. This is my absolute favorite spot on Mission Beach, so close to Santa Clara, an easy walk to Belmont Park, a fun walk down the ocean front walk or bay to Ralph's, the grocery store. Also, Sprouts is a nice health food store to walk to in Pacific Beach. I like staying away from hectic crowds, but I enjoy being around people if I want to see them. This cottage satisfies both of these desires. I rented The Shore Thing cottage which is the front one. I liked being able to watch people walk by as I ate breakfast from the kitchen window. I enjoyed the large fridge and stove. The large patio gets beautiful sunlight. The neighbors were friendly. The Roku TV and I became best friends. The unit does not have laundry, but the laundromat is close by. Please note the couch is not the leather one pictured which was a let down for me with neck issues and chronic pain. I survived. Also, I had to purchase bakeware and a new pan to cook with as the provided items did not appeal to me. The latter is a minor issue and should not affect your decision to stay at this property. I recommend paper plates, cups, and flatware to enjoy more time at the beach instead of washing dishes. Be advised that staying anywhere at the beaches, you are probably going to hear your neighbors. It adds to the experience. :) Finally, the owner, Mr. Miles Hughes is a sweetheart. He responded to my concerns quickly and was only a text or email away. Thank you, Mr. Hughes, for a relaxing, unforgettable, and productive stay in Mission Beach.

Great location / Modest Setting

  • 4 of 5

The units are as advertised. Minimalist units with extremely close proximity to the beach. They fit the bill for what we were looking for. My one complaint is the no A/C. Our stay was early/mid July and it was very toasty during the day especially when my son had to take his nap around 2pm. I think a window A/C unit would go a long way in the summer months considering how small the places are. Nighttime and mornings the temps dropped to comfortable levels with the doors/windows open. Tight parking, but that is everywhere at the beach.

Fabulous location between ocean and bay. Home is old, but why would you want to stay indoors!

  • 5 of 5

Miles helped with extra accommodations for our child and was very easy to work with. Location was ideal! Close to beach, food, and airport!
