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 Point Loma

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!

Amazing spot near everything!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was so amazing. It was right in the perfect spot in Old Town where we could walk to many different stores and restaurants. The house was very clean and it made myself, my wife, and our 2 dogs feel right at home. I will definitely be coming back to this cottage when we come back and visit SD.

Top notch vacation rental--spacious and well-appointed.

  • 5 of 5

Our hosts provided such considerate personal attention that we felt very comfortable in our new environment. The cottage was perfect in every way and there wasn't one thing missing and many things that we wouldn't have expected such as beach toys and towels. The setting in Old Town was unique and close to many interesting tourist attractions but the local tavern and restaurant owners also appreciated repeat business and I felt "part of the family" when mentioning our host as she eats in the places she recommends to guests. Super service wherever we went locally. The proximity to the transit station was also notable and the hosts provided reloadable cards to make using transit easy and worry-free. We also had an assigned parking spot if necessary, another bonus in this busy area. We just loved it!

Owner's Response: Susan, wow! What a touching and heartfelt review! Thank you so much. We loved having you and sure did enjoy how adventurous you were during your stay! (Susan and her husband were even bold enough to venture down to Tijuana!) We know the weather didn't exactly cooperate and hope that didn't detract from your time here. All the best in your travels to come and keep up the adventurous spirit! Cheers! Dove & Joan

The shops the restaurants,the State Park, the Old Town Trolley, Old Town has it all and it's all at your finger tips, because the cottage is so well located you only have a short walk to anything and everything you could want or need. Joan and Dove your the BEST!!!!!!!!!!!. Thanks Dee and Terry

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.
