About the property

Steps to Beach, Restaurants, Shopping and Beach Adventure Activities!

Let the ocean breeze wrap around you as you relax in this bright beach cottage with Air Conditioning. Mere steps to the Bay (perfect for swimming and SUP) and a 1/2 block to the beach, this cottage gives old school vibe with new school amenities- New kitchen, flooring, bathroom, and appliances! This is the ideal location, in the heart of restaurants, coffee shops and stores, but quietly situated away from the noise. The outdoor patio is perfect for people watching with a glass of wine or enjoying your morning coffee.

This cute cottage is a stand-alone house that is perfect for a family or small group. With two bedrooms, 3 beds, a fully stocked kitchen and Uverse TV/Netflix, you will have everything you need for a cozy night in or as a home base for spending time outdoors. Just a note, there is NO parking space with the cottage so a detailed map of surrounding parking areas is provided in the information booklet.

Two bedroom cottage on Mission Bay

  • 3 of 5

Our stay in your two bedroom cottage was nice but it was not what was expected. The cottage was clean. There was no parking place included with the rental but a map in the house book was included to help u find somekind of parking. A word of advice to future renters , please tell the management u have the maximum people staying in the house. She will only leave the minimum of linens and toiletries, be prepared to bring extra toilet paper. For the amount of money per night , we expected not to go though the hassle of asking for toiletries. And than having a deep discussion over it. The corner group in the living room is very uncomfortable 😣 , the couch is too low to the ground and there is no other sitting accept the dining room chairs. In a previous renters review, they spoke of the same problem. The shower and kitchen is nice. The cottage is located fairly close to Mission Blvd. there is a Bar and Grill that serves very good food but at night the bar and grill is very loud and you can hear it late at night. The area where the cottage is located is great . U are a block away from Mission Bay and the other direction a block away from the ocean side. Lots of shops, restaurants and parks. Beautiful well maintain walk ways along the Bay or ocean side. Next time we visit Mission Bay we will be looking for a better place to stay.

Owner's Response: I am glad you had a lovely stay despite the few items you mentioned. Regarding the parking, I am very clear in the description that parking is not included. If you can get away with it, not having a car is more convenient and less expensive. Uber/Lyft and the various bike/scooter options are cheap and reliable. Regarding the linens, we usually leave the house set up for 4 guests. Two bath towels and one beach towel per person. You only stayed 4 nights, this should have been plenty. If you had a 5th guest, I was unaware of it and you were out a couple of towels. The couch is low, but it is very deep and as a 6' tall person, I find it very comfortable. If you have difficulty getting up and down, then you will have to use the kitchen chairs. The noise from the bar is not mentioned on most of my other reviews as it is generally not a problem. You were in town on a holiday weekend and anywhere you would have stayed would have had some sort of noise issue. Memorial Day weekend kicks of summer. It sounds like another place would be better suited for your next stay. Not every rental fits the needs of every guest. I hope you find a place that is perfect for your next visit to San Diego :)

Great cottage within reach of: beautiful beach, bay and local food.

  • 5 of 5

Really sweet spot to stay in mission beach. The cottage is on a side walkway, away from street noise, with everything’s you need to have a great time. Lots of beach activities to choose from and restaurants. Cottage is equipped with full kitchen and had nice little porch our front where you can kick back and enjoy the sunshine. We brought our small dog and had great walks on beach (before 9am and after 6pm!)

Cute, beach bungalow at a great location but parking is bad

  • 4 of 5

We rented it for our family friends visiting from NYC for their kids' spring break. Family of 4 with 2 little girls. Girls loved the bunk bed. It's a small 2 bedroom bungalow set up, but it's a cute, beach bungalow. Location is GREAT. One downside if you are driving is that there is no onsite parking. On Saturday night, he had to park 0.5 mile away. Sunday night was ok.

Great Rental, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Can't beat this location.... one block to the beach and one block to the Bay. Close to great eateries and drinking holes. Also next to Cheap Rentals (super reasonable rental prices) -- bikes, boogie boards, surf boards, etc. Molly has the rental setup super beachy cute and comfortable. Very clean! She's also got a great book with good information about parking, places to eat, things to do, etc.

Great location for beach time

  • 4 of 5

The property was nice with a few slight quirks. The location for the price can't be beat you are walking distance from the beach and bay as well as several yummy restaurants.
