LAST BUT NOT LEAST…….The front porch is the perfect place for morning coffees and afternoon cocktails :) ….. is decked and beautifully fenced with custom dimmer controlled lanterns.

The cottage is located on the sunny side of the court (south facing) so the porch will always be sunny.

About Shaz Mclean

I am English and my husband South African. We moved to the US 18 years ago. We live in Solana Beach, have two children of 15 and 12 and two Jack Russell Terriers. We have two other vacation rental 379170 and 497367 which we also completely remodeled. I love the whole process of demo through to soft furnishings and am hands on in every stage. I hope it shows how much thought I put into you having the perfect place to stay while visiting Mission Beach.

That is my mission. Shaz :)

What a cozy cottage! Everything was just as described! Nothing we needed was left out! Very clean.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the cottage with our daughter and two small grandchildren after a long flight across country. We were in San Diego to visit our other daughter and three small grandchildren who live in nearby Pacific Beach! Grandparent heaven! We couldn't have been happier when we walked in and saw that everything was just as pictured and described. Shaz has an amazing eye for detail. As we settled in we found that anything we needed was at our fingertips. The kitchen was very well stocked with everything needed for inside cooking or cooking out on the well maintained grill.

Our grandchildren just loved the bunk beds. Our grandson thought being on the top bunk was the best. We felt good about it because the protective railing was the full length of the bed!! All the beds were so comfortable and the bedrooms were so cozy.

The beach was a very short walk out the front door and down the alley where you crossed the bike/walking trial. We could just grab the big beach towels and run for the beach! Such a wonderful spot for all of us to meet and just enjoy being together!

The parking was just as Shaz had described. There were no surprises and we appreciated that. Very tight into a small garage attached to the cottage. We borrowed a car (small SUV) from our " west coast" daughter and I was able to back it in after all other passengers were out of the vehicle.

The area was quiet but just a very short distance from coffe shops, restaurants and shopping. We're back in chilly New England now but our stay in Mission Bay will be long remembered having enjoyed our special time together at such a wonderful cottage Thank you!

Exceptionally Comfortable & Convenient

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in Mission Beach on 7 other occasions, each at a different rental. This beach home, is by far, the best place. I truly felt as though we were staying at a friend's home. The cottage has everything you could possibly need - all you have to do is show up. The place was spotless and smelt clean and fresh. One is able to tell the care that is put into this property as soon as you walk in. The kitchen is fully stocked - even utensils and dishes for little kiddos. The bathroom towels were large and soft (not like a typical rental with small, scratchy, heavily used towels) and plenty to go around without having to share. The beds were more than comfortable with high-end bedding and pillows galore! The sitting and dining room were small and cozy but plenty of room to enjoy one another's company. The room with the bunk beds and TV was ideal for my 2.5 year old to have her own space to read and watch cartoons. The bathroom had a fantastic footed tub and was big enough to maneuver around in. The 1/2 bath (really just a toilet) is just a step outside the kitchen and is shared in a room with the washer/dryer. Several large beach towels were available for use. Beach chairs, bikes, umbrellas, toys... you truly don't need to bring a thing. There are windows in all rooms of the house, allowing for a nice cross breeze. There were also fans in every room. This is not a typical rental by any means. Shaz has gone the extra mile to ensure your stay is comfortable and homey. Even the fixtures are high end - with beautiful lighting in each room. You will be wise to rent this cottage - we will be back without hesitation.

The location is ideal - about 10 steps to the bay and the ocean side is a 2-minute walk. It was extremely quiet. Great restaurants and coffee shops very close by - you can walk to just about anything. Belmont Park was the farthest walk at about 15-20 minutes - 1 mile south of the cottage.

The only drawback is the lack of parking. The garage is too small for a truck, but one might be able to fit a small car or small SUV - (As the listing indicates) We were able to find parking at the nearby Santa Clara parking area. However, if you visit in the summer, you will not be so lucky. Once folks take a spot, they tend to keep it!

Shaz was extremely responsive and very easy and friendly to work with. I'd much prefer this personal contact than dealing with a rental management company.

Our stay was delightful! We are already thinking about when we can go back!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to San Diego. We have two young daughters, and drove there. The home was beautiful and worked great for our needs. It is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. One of our daughters slept on the bottom bunk in one room, the other in her pack n play in another room, and we had the last bedroom. The kitchen is small, but well equipped. We cooked most of our breakfasts there, and a few dinners. There is no dishwasher, but we didn't mind hand washing the few dishes we used. The TV was equipped with Amazon Prime. The garage is tight. We have a Volkswagen Passat and could not quite fit in all the way. We backed it in as far as it would go and tied the doors shut as best we could.

The location is just perfect: a block or so from the ocean and steps from the bay. We used all the toys in the garage - paddle boards, sand toys, beach chairs, and boogie board. We didn't get a chance to use the bikes. We visited sea world, the zoo, the safari park and Point Loma.

This was an absolutely wonderful trip and we loved the vacation home. The location was perfect. The amenities were perfect. We will definitely consider staying here again. It was perfect for our 2 young kiddos. They had an awesome time!

Beautiful Stay in Mission Beach!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in several rentals in Mission Beach over the years and Shaz's property is definitely an A+++. It's beautifully decorated - the beds AND the pillows are REALLY comfortable (and that's not always the case), comfortable furniture, great TVs (with Amazon TV), working/clean BBQ grill and lovely front patio. It is STEPS to the beach at the bay and steps to all the wonderful restaurants and shops of Mission Beach. Aside from the beautiful decor of the cottage, there are FOUR beach cruisers, two paddle boards, beach chairs, a whole drawer of beach towels, toys for the kids and everything you could possible want in a vacation spot. We enjoyed biking around the bay on all but one of the days. Unfortunately, it was never warm enough to want to get on the paddle boards which just means we need to go back again! A nice, homey extra touch is the bottle of champagne with four chilled flutes just waiting for us in the fridge. Shaz is very responsive and easy to contact if there are questions. We highly recommend this rental for a wonderful San Diego/Mission Beach vacation.

Comfortable, clean, perfect family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family of four with two children ages 5 & 7 stayed here for a week. We couldn't have been more happy! The kids loved the bunk room and it was nice that they had their own space and my husband and I could relax after long days of being on the go. The cottage is in a great location and everything you could possibly need is included! Walk to several restaurants and coffee shops, beach, Boardwalk and bay. Having the laundry room is key and we found that coming from the east coast we should have packed half of what we did. Overall the cottage is beautifully decorated, clean and very comfortable for a family vacation. Thanks so much!

Lovely Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our three nights at this North Mission Beach property! The location was great, & gave us easy access to both Mission Bay & the beach. The house was immaculate, & the beds & pillows were very comfortable. The neighborhood was quiet. We appreciated the bottle of chilled champagne in the refrigerator. Parking was a bit of a challenge, & the half bath is only a toilet with outside access via the laundry room, so not quite what we expected, but we would definitely stay here if we were in the San Diego area again!
