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.

Great location, super clean and owner was great to work with!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the patio! Overall location was super convenient to beach, bay, and amenities. It was great having a parking spot and all of the beach gear. Karin the owner, was easy to work with; we would definitely stay here again.

FABULOUS LOCATION, EXCELLENT DECK, CLOSE TO EVERYTHING

  • 5 of 5

Staying in this home felt like home. Four of us, my two daughters and my granddaughter. It worked beautifully for us. Karin supplied us with paknplay, highchair and stroller, and extra blankets for paknplay. Above and beyond Karin, thank you.We settled in quickly, got the bikes out and enjoyed riding and walking the bayside walk and the ocean side walk everyday. BBQ'd on the deck and enjoyed having dinner on it, looking out towards the Bay, so relaxing. Checked out Belmont Park, loved the sounds from the roller coaster! Definitely no need for a car! Karin was always available to answer any questions. This was just the best holiday ever. Thank you Karin for everything. We will be back!

A Most Gracios Host

  • 4 of 5

As the title, Karin is indeed a gracious and responsive host. The apartment is spotlessly clean and recently remodeled. If you are a cook, the kitchen is fully equipped. The beach and the bay are within a few minutes walk, and I loved riding the bicycle along the boardwalk. I believe it extends as far as La Jolla which has wonderful tide pools and rock formations.

The drawback for me is that there really is no convenient or comfortable outside area. For myself, to. be comfortable in an apartment, I need light, a feeling of openness--small is not important. I expected, for whatever reason, a beach cottage. This is not that. It is a rather enclosed and darkish apartment; never a space in which I wanted to spend time. However, the price is right, and the location good and, again, Karin, the owner, was absolutely generous. All-in-all, it was a great vacation. Do rent the bicycles.m it is a joy riding happily oceanside.

Owner's Response: Alice~ We are so glad you had a great vacation, and enjoyed the kitchen and the bikes! Just a little confused about you not finding a comfortable outside area. That is something guests usually say they enjoy the most - our large patio with table and chairs for dining outside and two lounge chairs for relaxing in the open air. Plus a bbq for grilling. Two weeks ago, we re-stuccoed the brick wall and just added a new white cottage gate for extra cuteness! Anyway, thanks again, it was a pleasure meeting you! Perhaps try the front unit next time which, having more windows, is about as airy and light and beachy as cottages can get!

Great stay in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

House is in a great location. 1 block from the bay and 2 blocks from the ocean. The house was ideal for our small family of four as our kids were able to sleep on the extended couch bed which was very comfortable. Very clean and had everything we needed. We would definitely stay here again.

Great location, quiet and clean!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect place for my husband and I on our vacation. The location was perfect! You are close to the bay side, which is relaxing and quiet. Yet, you are super close to the beach and Belmont Park! We enjoyed all of their amenities like, beach umbrellas, sweet front patio and two beach cruisers. The bikes were $25/per visit! They also have a single car garage which was very important for us! We would definitely come back again!

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.
