About Heather Gruber

We raised our 6 kids in San Diego. 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!

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.

Great Stay...excellent host

  • 5 of 5

My family and I travel to Mission every summer to enjoy the beach and bay. This year we had the pleasure of renting this great cottage on Sunset. Heather our host couldn't have been more accommodating and always available. The house had everything you need from beach towels, to a stocked kitchen for cooking and don't forget the awesome rooftop deck, with beach and bay views. I would be more than happy to recommend this home for your San Diego stay.

Amazing beach home at a great location

  • 5 of 5

This beach home was a perfect vacation spot for us. We stayed there 3 days and 2 nights with 5 adults this week. It's within walking distance to the beach and the home owner provided everything we needed for the beach such as beach chairs, canopy, body surf boards, umbrellas, ect. The location of this beach home was very convenient for us, it was close to a lot of main attractions in San Diego. We all slept comfortably on the bed and 2 pull out sofa beds. Surprisingly the mattresses on the sofas were very comfortable. They were queen size beds. The home owner was very nice and easy to work with. Very responsive with me. We will definitely rent this beach home again on our next visit to San Diego.
