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!

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.

"A funky little joint"

  • 3 of 5
Verified Stay

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

The house is in a great location with excellent breakfast joints in walking distance. Steps to the bay and a short walk to mission Beach. The house is old and small but comfortable for a family of 4

Great Stay...excellent host

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

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.
