About Heather Gruber

My parents raised 6 kids. The purpose for buying this property was to spend more time in one of the most beautiful places in San Diego. That was almost 36 years ago! We have had so many special moments here with our kids and grandchildren and hope that you will create some special moments too!

Heather Gruber purchased this cottage in 1980

Why Heather Gruber chose San Diego County

We love the location of this beach cottage. It is right in the middle of Mission Beach. Walking distance to bars, restaurants, shopping, beach equipment rentals and most important the bay and beach! When walking to these places you can choose to walk on the bay boardwalk or the beach boardwalk. Both are breathtaking!

What makes this cottage unique

Location, location, location!!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had such a nice time at your house. The price was reasonable, it was so

close to the beach and restaurants, and the photos on the walls were so

charming. We also slept well on the bed and had no problems with the

internet, the kitchen, or the bath. It was nice to have the beach towels ,

beach chairs, body boards, and optional roof terrace.

We will definitely try to stay there again, but for longer next time.

Very cool place and a cosy cottage to stay.

  • 4 of 5

We had 4 great day is this simple, little, nice cottage! The location in mission bay is very cool. The easiness to get to the calm bay as well as to the wilder pacific coast within one minute and to have cafes, strand bars and restaurants all in near walking distance makes the place very special. Our kids liked it a lot, as they could do things independently. And it was nice to have a kitchen and living room to meet together. It was perfect for us. It is a cosy, clean cottage, not luxury or having big rooms or bath with big space. The host was very friendly and quickly answering on our emails. We would stay again :)

Cute cottage for a great price

  • 5 of 5

This little cottage had everything we needed for a great vacation. The pullout couches were more comfortable than standard pullout couches and there were plenty of bed linen and towels. It's definitely not a big or modern place, but we just needed a place to sleep and fix some meals in the kitchen so we didn't have to go out to eat for every meal. It was also great having the beach chairs, boogie boards, sand toys, and sun shades/umbrellas that were available with the house. The price was very reasonable and the owner was very attentive and reachable. The house is in a great location.....it's just 1 mile walk to Belmont park in one direction and about the same walk to to heart of Pacific Beach in the other direction.

Perfect little beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

I was very impressed with this rental, long before even arriving. I realized about 2 weeks before arrival the days I booked were not ideal for me. I asked the owner about adjusting the days and she was very quick to respond, and was able to adjust the days to the ones wanted, no questions asked as no price increase. The house itself is very cozy and inviting, and only a couple minutes walk from the ocean and the bay. The only glitch was with the WiFi, but just like before the owner got back to me almost immediately and was quick to resolve the issue. I loved how close the house was to everything, coffee shop, restaurants, beach, bike rentals, boardwalk, etc, all walking distance. I would definitely book again! Thank you Heather for the much needed vacation getaway

"A funky little joint"

  • 3 of 5

The cabin was adequately clean and convenient to local coffee shops and the beach. The space was cramped for four adults, however. It is in serious need of a face lift making the inside rather dreary and depressing. Parking a full-sized car in the parking space and locking the large gate was an ordeal every single time due to the very limited space and the concrete "lip" on the driveway. We were there for 3 nights and it served its purpose as we did no cooking and didn't spend much time inside the cabin.

One final note -- I left my jacket in the closet, and the owner was good enough to ship it back to me. Thank you!...

Owner's Response: Hi Peter, Wow! I'm shocked to see such a mediocre review after you thanking me and telling me the house was wonderful. I take a lot of pride in the hours I spend cleaning and preparing the house for our guests. Our home is 100 years old. Our site on VRBO posts pictures that accurately reflect what our Cottage looks like and most people agree that is what makes it casual, comfortable and charming. As far as parking, I told you in advance that one small to mid sized vehicle fits in out parking space. Closing the gate is not mandatory or necessary. You did not reach out with any questions or statements before or during your trip only after when you needed me to send you your jacket. If you would have communicated the importance of closing the gate I could have given you some tips. Heather
