Notes:
We rent our beach cruisers for $25 a pair for the week or part thereof. Same with our 2-person kayak. Both are used but in good shape, comfortable and CHEAP! There are plenty of Rental Companies nearby as well for surfboards, paddle boards, etc. The cottage is a duplex and has another unit of exactly the same size, check with us for availability! Both units share the large front patio. There is a one car detached garage (for a compact or midsize car) which is a bonus as parking is very scarce at the beach. The house has central heat for the colder months and a portable air conditioner for the summer.

Quiet! Cozy little cottage

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. What a neat little place, perfect for our small family of three. It's the perfect location right in between the Bay, and the Ocean. You are literally a couple minute walk to either one. Having a parking spot in the garage in HUGE! Parking is a premium in that area. The cottage has everything you need, including toys for the beach. We will be returning soon.

Medium expectations greatly exceeded.

  • 5 of 5

The property was neat, clean and very efficient. We really had no idea what to expect so we were extremely pleased. Very close to bay and beach. Parking a van in the garage was a bit tricky but very workable. The bikes were a useful addition. We would not hesitate to stay here again. The owners are also very easy to contact and reply to all communications.

Cute cottage, close to walkways along ocean and bayside.

  • 2 of 5

Cottage cute, but no dishwasher...... Walls very thin, we could hear tenants in other half of property, baby/young child crying in the night so woke us up. White towels had dirty marks so missed the laundry?

Owner's Response: Hi Patricia~ So glad you enjoyed the location of our cottage! But so sorry that you felt the walls were too thin. This is very rarely an issue for our guests. And as far as the laundry, we will inspect the towels and make sure any with stains that don't come out in the laundry will be thrown out. Our housekeeper, my mother-in-law is fastidious about keeping the laundry sparkling white but it always possible that a stained towel did not come clean in the wash and the stain was not noticed. But thanks again and take care~

GREAT LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and adult son and I stayed here for 4 nights. The unit had everything we needed and we cooked most our meals and enjoyed the BBQ. It was nice and clean and we enjoyed having the windows open at night. We love being close to both the Mission beach and Pacific beach. The bikes were great! We used them and also enjoyed rollerblading on the boardwalk. We had an issue with the adjoining renter's dog barking but the owner quickly responded and took care of it. The unit has gorgeous (original?) real wood floors. We went to Coronado island one afternoon and enjoyed the gorgeous beach there and ate at Brigantine Seafood restaurant that evening near the historic hotel there. Thank you for such a nice stay!

Close to everything, quiet, very responsive hosts

  • 4 of 5

Very clean and comfortable. Karin responded immediately to all questions. We rented their bikes and had a beautiful ride. This building has a front and rear unit. We stayed in the rear unit which doesn't open on to the nice front yard, so next time will try to stay in the front unit. Nice to have the garage so we didn't have to search for parking.

Pacific Beach

This area of Central Mission Beach is a peninsula of residences with the Pacific Ocean on the west and Mission Bay to the east. Guests can choose from the busier beach boardwalk full of activity and people watching or the quieter bay boardwalk. Bike riding, rollerblading or strolling are popular activities on either side. The location is fantastic as there is a bus stop on Mission Beach Blvd. which goes to the main transit center. Shopping is also easy as there are many small convenience stores nearby as well as a Ralph's Supermarket and Trader Joe's - each about a mile away. This location is just a 15 minute drive to all main features in San Diego: Sea World, The San Diego Zoo, The Gaslamp Quarter Downtown, La Jolla Cove and Sea Port Village. Our cozy cottage is located just a minute's walk from Belmont Park and the famous roller coaster, as well the Pacific Ocean and three doors down from the sand in Mission Bay.
