We had the most amazing time in San Diego staying at Stella's beach cottage! It was awesome!! Lisa is an amazing host! She was so easy to work with and thought of every little detail a traveler would need. The place was spotless, it was decorated so cute and stocked with all the amenities we needed. Lisa has thought of everything and we appreciated all the extra little touches. It was literally steps from the beach and we thoroughly enjoyed sitting out on the deck each morning listening to the waves roll in. The cottage is in a great centralized location. Lisa has provided plenty of info on the surrounding area sites, restaurants and things to do. We loved every minute of it and hope to return soon! Thank you for a great vacation!

CHARMING, CLEAN AND FULLY EQUIPPED... No need to look anywhere else!

  • 5 of 5

1st and foremost the owner Lisa is amazing and very punctual. Having a bad experience in the past with ANOTHER VRBO rental I was very uneasy about the whole booking process but thanks to Lisa's great attitude, involvement and professionalism with her location my fears are long gone! not only was her place a Gem but her customer service was excellent.... We never had any questions because she made sure to have all the answers before hand via the VRBO app, as well as a binder on the desk in the house which was accompanied by a lovely greeting card and family gift!

Now a little about the cottage.... The cottage is perfect for a small family looking for fun filled days near the beach. It's beach decor and calming colors along with the sounds of the crashing waves and breeze of fresh air through the cottage truly make this place in my opinion one of the best!

The cottage is fully furnished and equipped with everything you can possibly need. No need for extra clothing or towels there is a washer and dryer on site.No need to bring beach towels, beach equipment, bikes, entertainment, grills etc. IT'S ALL THERE!. No need to dine out if you don't want too... BBQ some ribs while the kiddos make some s'mores over the fire... WE DID ;0) not to mention in addition to all of its greatness the cottage is conveniently centered near areas of fun! Beach, Belmont Park, San Juan Cove( water rentals) and more. What more could you really ask for!?

This little slice of heaven was perfect for my family and left a long lasting impression .... as my daughter says " IT WAS INCREDIBLE! "

So if you are looking for a true beach cottage that embraces its location in and out this is the place!

Great location, clean and well taken care of. Exceeded expectations.

  • 5 of 5

My family had a great stay at the cottage. It was also nice to have a private parking spot as most parking given the close proximity to the beach can be a bit of a nightmare.

The cottage was very clean and you can tell the owner's take good care and upkeep as they even had a brand new very nice patio set delivered.

I will certainly stay here again as the experience was above my expectations and the owners were very accommodating.

What a PERFECT little beach cottage!!

  • 5 of 5

This little cottage just steps from the ocean and beach walk was a perfect getaway for our young daughter to see the beach for the first time. The house was so clean and comfortable and had just about everything you could ask for, including all the beach toys, bags, chairs, bikes and towels you need to fully enjoy your stay. The owners were very responsive and even arranged for an early check-in, which meant so much after a day of travel. The bottle of wine, chocolates and couple beach friendly toys for our 3 year old were so thoughtful. It is in such a great location with grocery and liquor stores, Belmont Park and restaurants within walking distance. We cannot wait to return to this house!

Highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time at Stellas Beach Cottage. It's a great place to stay. Steps from the beach and a view of the beach from the patio make it very convenient. A couple restaurants are within walking distance as is a cute little bakery. The distance from downtown is short and there's plenty to do within a 10 minute drive in any direction. The cottage is well maintained and is equipped with everything you might need including bikes, washer, dryer, games , internet movies and DirectTV. The owner is super nice and easy to communicate with. The cottage is clean, cozy and comfortable. We look forward to returning!
