Perfect Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Location, Location, Location! This little cottage was 60 steps to the ocean (which you can see sitting on the patio) and a couple of blocks to the bay. Our family loved all the beach toys- paddle boards, surf board (our son hadn't surfed in years and was able to try it again), bikes, chairs- whatever you needed. The kitchen was well equipped and the champagne was in the refrigerator was a very thoughtful thing to do for people you have never met. This was the "best" family vacation we have had in many years and would recommend this cottage highly.

PERFECT location, PERFECT home, PERFECT vacation!

  • 5 of 5

There aren't enough words to describe how much we loved this home, the location, and all the amenities provided. The location was just perfect for us. Steps to the ocean... we often walked to the water with out bringing towels because we were so close we'd just walk back to the house when we got out! The boardwalk goes for miles along the edge of the ocean - shops, restaurants, Belmont Park amusement park, the pier. Walk, jog, skate, ride bikes - we LOVED this!!!! Just a couple minutes walk to Mission Bay (on the side opposite the ocean).... literally just a few minutes walk and you're there at the bay with it's own boardwalk around the gorgeous bay. Watch sea world fireworks from the edge of the bay just minutes from the house. SO much to do!! A marina right on the bay has rentals of every type of watercraft you could want. Also within minutes of the house is a coffee shop, a bar, a restaurant, a liquor store, a breakfast restaurant, and an ice cream shop all within a couple mins walk. Literally a couple minutes. And besides the location and how PERFECT that is.... there was the darling, adorable, amazing, perfect, beautiful, and SOOOOO cozy home!! Every single detail was just perfect. The quality of the furniture (comfy-est couch ever), sheets & bedding (SOO cozy!!), towels, decorations (seriously looks like a magazine! like a professional decorated!), ....Aaaaah!!!! LOVED it all!!!!! They had room scented sprays, travel size soaps/shampoos/face washes. TONS of towels (including beach towels), blankets and pillows, very cozy and high quality. TV had a hookup for iPod (the old connection, though, you'll need an adaptor if you have a 'lightning' connection like the new iphones), with speakers inside and out. A great air conditioner in the living room. Kitchen is fully stocked, and there is also a lot of food extras/leftovers for use (don't bring salt or pepper or anything unless you check with Linda first...it is probably there!). There is a dishwasher, a clothes washer and dryer (including all the soaps you can use). We did bring and use more paper towels than were there because I like to clean up a lot. The garage has about 9 really nice beach cruiser bikes and bike locks for your use (we used them a LOT!!). Also MANY stand up paddle boards, a surfboard (longboard/foam), boogie boards, skim boards, beach chairs/umbrellas, sand toys, snorkles....gosh so much. Ask before you bring anything because she probably already has it there.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Cute and cozy beach house in the perfect setting! Steps from the ocean beach and the bay beach. Loved all the toys, Linda has a great assortment from SUP boards to simple sand toys, and all the bikes we needed to get around!

Her home decor was perfect to get you in the Beach mood. Kitchen was well stocked and the bedding/linens were very nice! The Champagne in the fridge was a nice welcome and very thoughtful. I would recommend this beach house highly!!! Thanks for a great 4th of July weekend!

Beach Dream House!

  • 5 of 5

Love this house! It was equipped with the full beach experience starting with being just steps from the ocean, to every small detail inside the house having a beach theme. My family and I had a wonderful time. There are endless activities and a perfect distance from daytime fun with a short bike ride to the Wave house and roller coaster going south, and night time fun and nice dinner spots if you go North towards PB. It is perfectly in the middle so both are incredibly convenient, while staying away from the night time noise.

The trip was highly enhanced by the amount of beach gear available, bikes, paddle boards, and boogie boards there was fun for all. We can't thank Linda enough for having everything so perfect for our arrival. I had family visiting from Germany, and they said this gave them the real California beach experience they imagined.

I highly recommend this place if you are looking for a true beach experience!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this beach house! The house is basically two houses away from the beach. The house is super clean, and even has its own garage! Linda, the owner, was gracious enough to provide every beach equipment you'll ever need! Plenty of bikes, surfboards, wet suits, beach towels, boogie boards, beach chairs, etc. Linda was even thoughtful enough to bring me flowers for my birthday! How sweet is that? Thanks to Linda and her cute beach house, I had an amazing birthday weekend. I would definite book with her again. I already miss waking up to the smell of the ocean. Can't wait to go back!

Loved this place!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house! You won’t want to leave once you are there. The house is cozy, newly renovated and has EVERYTHING you need. No joke! I thought about not providing a review so that no one would know how great this place is. (I’d like to note that we came to San Diego last year, stayed in a hotel and it was a disaster! For a few dollars more, this is the best decision you can make!) Linda greeted us upon our arrival. We are a family of 3 with a 1 year old son. As mentioned in the other review, she had recently purchased a pack n play and high chair which was a brilliant move on her part. The recently renovated house had a nice beach feel to it - it really felt like a home. Just 2 houses away from the beach (yes you can see the ocean from the porch), I was a little nervous on how safe I would feel but I didn’t worry once we settled in. We even left our stroller out on the patio overnight, no issues. The welcoming gift (champagne) in the refrigerator was a nice surprise. The home setup is wonderful; the front Dutch door was a great addition. We kept it half-open during the days to feel the beach breeze. We even had breakfast on the patio each morning. The house has 2 spacious rooms with televisions in each room, wood floors throughout and a comfy sectional in the family room, not to mention the plethora of outdoor accessories/toys and beach towels which were a delightful surprise! I didn’t see the styling tools (hair dryer, straightener) until we left. The location is close to everything – SeaWorld, SD zoo, PB, bike rentals, etc.! Other renters passing by even commented on the location and how quaint and beautiful the house is. If you haven’t been to San Diego before, this location is great. If you have, this location is even better because you know you have access to all things amazing. With another baby on the way, this is my last vacation as a mom of 1 and I was able to make some incredible memories with our son due to the comfortable stay and proximity of great food and entertainment around us. We loved Ballast Point and Enoteca Adriano, a hidden Italian gem, in PB.

If you have multiple children, I would recommend bringing extra sand toys as Linda’s property only had a few, which was fine for us since our son wasn’t fond of the sand. Near the pier, they sell a sand castle kit for a mere $3 for those that need more toys. Linda, thank you for letting us stay at your beautiful place. We will definitely be back next year!
