Close to Sea World, Zoo, Beach

Our guests love this cottage! : LotusCottages is located just steps away from to the Pacific Ocean. Surrounded by 100-year old palm trees, you can relax on the decks, admire the exotic plants, and enjoy the wonderful sounds of the surf and the sounds of the palm trees whispering in the wind. You'll be in your own world. LotusCottages is one of San Diego's most enjoyable beach vacation rentals.

Designed by an award-winning architect. Built by a master carpenter. The detailing is incredible.

Listen to the waves at night. Surf the waves during the day. Whatever you do, we know you will enjoy the ambiance of these beautiful, historical cottages.

We have just completed renovating the first of the Lotus Cottages.

The first of the LotusCottages is a charming historic beach cottage built in 1922 and lovingly restored in 2007. This 'new old house' is fully wood paneled.

The cottage sleeps up to four people comfortably.

Included are two wonderful decks and a modern gourmet kitchen

Architect Designed Master Carpenter Built: This very special, 1922 knotty pine paneled, Sears and Roebuck beach kit cottage was lovingly restored in 2007. It was designed to accommodate San Diego's extraordinary year-round weather.

In the front is a private gated yard elevated above the street and bordered with palm trees. Here you can enjoy a morning coffee in our beautiful and comfortable wicker chairs.

A delightful gourmet kitchen awaits you just inside the front door and includes two under-the-counter refrigerators, an under-the-counter freezer, a Jenn Air range and a microwave. The large counter space and tall stools on the opposite side create a fun and interactive place to eat.

The entire cottage is surrounded by 280 degrees of deck, has keyless entry and there’s even a hidden stackable washer and dryer just off the back patio.

If you appreciate true craftsmanship, you will love this cottage. No matter where you are in this cozy abode you will feel relaxed.

Some History on our Beach Cottage: 100 years ago, the ground underneath LotusCottages was the beach. In 1918, an amusement park, Wonderland Park, was located here. The cottage sits on the ground which was formerly the concrete pad around the Wonderland Park Carousel. In 1922, three beach cottage kits were erected on Lotus Street. Today, these cottages are some of the oldest Ocean Beach structures.

LotusCottages is magical!

This place is so great. We fell in love with OB all over again. Thank you so much for letting us stay here. This cottage is absolutely gorgeous – you did a GREAT JOB with every detail. From all the mini-fridge space to the backpack beach chairs. You thought of everything. We can’t thank you enough. We will definitely come back! Thanks! It was amazing!

Lotus Cottages

We were evacuated during the California Wildfires and so we rented this cottage for four days. We really enjoyed staying there. I enjoyed the fact that because it has been recently renovated, everything was brand new. I am also a history buff and standing on the part of the back deck that used to be Wonderland simply intrigued and excited me. The cottage was cozy and comfortable and the decks gave us an opportunity to get away from people which is what I really needed to do. I loved the stained glass windows in the bedroom and bathroom and the sound system was pretty terrific. I have a penchant for wood, so I really enjoyed the paneleing and cabinets. They are beautiffuly done. The beach really is maybe a two minute walk away and the pier is very close. All and all my husband and I had a great time there and in spite of worrying whether or not our home would be there when we returned, we were truly able to relax and enjoy the beach community life and there is plently to do within walking distance. The only thing I could say that "could" be a problem is parking if you have more than one car. There is parking on the property for one car, otherwise you have to park on the street. Though it is a beach community which by nature has a lot of people, I felt very safe there.
The cottage was setup the way it was presented in the advertising, it is clean and very well maintained, I didn't have to deal with the owner much but he responded to my questions or requests quickly. I would recommend this property to anyone wanting to be at the beach but have privacy too. We mostly just cooked in the kitchen but we did go to Thee Bungalow for dinner one night and really enjoyed it.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your kind words. I am so glad that we were able to provide you a temporary home during that trying time. We're glad you enjoyed LotusCottages so much. We put a lot of energy, effort and love into restoring this special historic beach cottage. The knotty pine paneling is so beautiful and it has such a terrific golden glow. The romantic night-time lighting in the living room and the bedroom make for such wonderful, enchanting memories. It's also great to know that you enjoyed our kitchen so much. Isn't that JennAir system terrific! I love the high-tech glass cooking surface. Again, thank you so much for appreciating the beauty and the history of LotusCottages.

What a lovely little cottage! Everything we expected from this Beach Community cottage. Close to so many things! The people around here were great. The cottage is fantastic for two people. The bed was comfy and cozy. The deck is private as it comes and the owl in the back courtyard is GREAT! We thank you for this time and look forward to returning. May you enjoy your time here! Thanks for providing us such a wonderful place to stay!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review! We appreciate it!! "The Owl" came from the Colonel Fletcher Building in downtown San Diego. The Owl Drug Company used to be located in the Fletcher Building. "The Owl" greeted patrons of the Owl Drug Store from the 1930s through the 1940s when they entered the store at the at the intersection of Sixth and Broadway. The Owl Drug Company was established in 1892 in San Francisco. When the Fletcher Building was recently renovated, the building owner asked our Cottage owner if he wanted to give this beautiful terra cotta piece of art a new home -- and so, it is now in the Palm Tree Grotto of Lotus 2.

Charming, Quaint, Wonderful Beach Cottage!!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time at the cottage. It was like living in a doll house! The community is just what we wanted, with plenty of privacy, but lots of things to see and do.

We really enjoyed the down time sitting on the front porch in the morning or on the back deck in the evening, or just walking in the neighborhood and taking in the atmosphere of the community.

We found that if we followed the directions for use of all the things at the cottage, like the beach stuff, it encouraged us to do things we wouldn't have thought of on our own. Boogey Boarding for example! We are way too old to be doing that, but had a blast trying anyway!

Thanks to you for being so helpful, it was one of those rare experiences beyond expectation. Thanks again.

We loved how close we were to the beach! I was fantastic to be able to walk to the beach, return home to the cottage, and run a load of laundry. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and can't wait to return.

Cozy and best location in OB.

I am so glad I chose the cottage for 5 days stay with my husband and son. The cottage was very charming. Beds were very comfortable. Many of the "appliances" one has in their home were provided at the cottage. This made our stay very relaxing and comfortable. Additionally, the cottage was very well kept and clean. Definetely recommend it!

We have tried to have everything you need, ready for you -- hair dryers, shampoo, beach towels, top quality kitchen appliances, pots and pans, blenders, wine glasses, beach chairs -- and the list goes on.

Please stay at the Cottage again!

WE LOVED IT!!!

  • 5 of 5
The Lotus Cottages reservation process was easy, the cottage was clean and welcoming, and everything about staying there was fabulous! We got a night free for booking 6 and we used all of that time to soak up sun and surf on the beach, get reacquainted with OB and visit Sea World multiple times. The cottage made a beautiful home away from home!
