About Dove Braunstein

I have been a San Diego resident for fifteen years now and absolutely LOVE my city. I want the world to get to experience the beautiful place I call home!

I love the SoCal lifestyle; am into fitness, animals, and travel-- although no matter what amazing places in the world I may visit, I love to come home. There is nothing like the San Diego sunshine!

I believe in leaving the world better than we found it, spreading joy and loving one another.

Dove Braunstein purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Dove Braunstein chose San Diego County

I fell in love with these cottages on sight. Walking by them, we saw that they were for sale and knew that they would make a delightful vacation rental. Old Town is such a hot spot in San Diego and there isn't much in the way of a residential area, much less vacation rentals. What better location than the heart of one of the most vibrant, highly visited destinations in San Diego!? The beautiful, lush property sits hidden amongst brilliant bougainvillea and tropical landscaping, and steps away from some of the best Mexican food in San Diego!

What makes this cottage unique

Parking in Old Town? Unheard of! A designated spot in the driveway is yours!

A private patio area in back allows you to enjoy the balmy weather, dine alfresco, or just relax in the San Diego sun.

Wonderfully upgraded throughout, this cottage has recently had substantial renovations, including a new kitchen, remodeled bathroom, water filtration system, eliminating the need to constantly be buying water! (The icemaker in the freezer is also plumbed to the water filter!) All new furniture, paint, and appliances!

A charming and private retreat

  • 5 of 5

Charming as well as very clean. The owner and property manager are very helpful and friendly. There were ample bathroom supplies. The kitchen supplies were what we had at home. You name, they had it. The location is great for visiting Old Town and most convenient for heading for SD in general.

Perfect spot in Old Town

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for only 2 nights but wished we could have stayed longer!

This is such a lovely little house which had everything we needed and more. The hosts were very friendly and helpful.

We would love to come back!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week in February 2017. Highly recommend! The owners were great and any minor issue we had (cable was out) was fixed within an hour or two. I stayed there with my husband and two young sons and there was plenty of room for all of us. Great location right in the heart of Old Town. Clean and functional, the unit had everything we could have possibly needed. We came in super late and the property manager left us cream and coffee for the morning. Very thoughtful. I loved the private backyard. Also loved the washer/dryer which allowed us to pack light. I would definitely not hesitate to stay again!!

Right in Old Town

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and had everything we needed for our 4 day stay. We easily walked to restaurants and the Old Town tourist area. We even played the Presidio 18 hole golf. What a hoot!!
