About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 4 Sleeps 4

This charming and spacious first floor unit duplex is located just steps (89 to be exact) to the sands of Mission Bay in the exclusive South Mission District of San Diego, which is widely known as 'America's

Finest City.' The setting is unique - it's adjacent to Mission Bay Park, on a 2.5 mile-long

peninsula, only two blocks wide. The ocean is a short block and a half to the west. Enjoy the

serenity of the Bay or the roar of the Pacific in this special location, with its magnificent

sunrises and sunsets.

The beach house has a gray exterior and cobalt blue awnings which gives it a charming 'nautical'

appearance. It's located three houses in from the Bay, on a small street near the south end of

Mission Boulevard, and very near the jetty. The private patio is a great place to relax. It is

nicely landscaped, and has new patio furniture and barbecue.

For those who desire more activity, there are miles of boardwalk on both ocean side and bay side for

walking, roller blading, and bicycling. Kayaks, beach bikes, sand chairs, sand toys, and boogie

boards are available for your use at no charge.

Bring your laptop to check email, etc. We now have wi-fi high speed internet service.

The unit is immaculate, is decorated with attention to details, has newly-refinished hardwood floors in living and dining areas and in the bedroom, and has a well-equipped kitchen. It's

a perfect retreat for singles, couples, or small families. It is completely furnished for a very

comfortable extended stay.

Bedding Information: One queen-size in bedroom; One full-size futon in living room.

Contact Information: We will respond to

your email within one day, and will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Great location for the beach and amazing place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in September for a couple days and it was amazing! We fell in love with San Diego! The place was close to the beach and harbor side too, just a short walk. They had a garage to park the car which was helpful and cruiser bike to use. We used the cruise bikes to ride to eat on mission beach! Would recommend and stay at this place again. Thanks

Spacious clean and well equipped .

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 5 weeks at this delightful property. It was clean, spacious and well equipped for our long stay. A few steps from the bay in a quiet street but not far from Belmont Park, which was just a 15 minute walk away. A car is not essential . You can catch a bus at Belmont Park and use the transit system to go to many of the sights in and around San Diego, which we often did.The neighbors are great, friendly and helpful. We hope to return next year.

Cozy Cottage by the Sea

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time I rented a beach house although I have visited San Diego several times throughout my life. This was by far the best experience. The owners provided great details and directions that were helpful in making this a truly relaxing stay. The cottage was clean, comfortable and in a great location. Steps from Mission Bay with it's beauty, park amenities and walking paths lent itself to long walks along the bay and beach. Parking is tight but we were lucky and never had to move our car. We were able to walk to restaurants, bars and a small market near by. A fully functional kitchen allowed us to cook many of our meals and snacks thus saving us money on dining out. The outdoor patio was inviting so I spent many hours enjoying the cool ocean breezes while reading my favorite book. We will definitely be back.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for taking the time to review our San Diego cottage. Your thoughtful remarks directed to future guests regarding advantages such as the boardwalk, the patio, Mission Bay, and the comfort and cleanliness of the cottage should be most helpful to potential future guests. We look forward to having you back at any time in the future!
