San Diego Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Casita Encanto (Spanish for enchanted little house) is located in San Diego, California, near the Gaslamp District in Downtown San Diego. Casita Encanto is a charming, luxury, one bedroom, fully furnished cottaget, just 7 miles from downton San Diego in a unique, eclectic, semi-rural neighborhood. We are zoned agricultural with a 1/2 acre minimum lot requirement. Because of the zoning laws, there are no apartment buildings - just one house on each 1/2 acre. As a result, you feel like you are in the country, even though we're just a few miles away from the city. It is very quiet and peaceful here. You will not find any trendy restaurants in this neighborhood, but there are countless of them just a few miles away. We have been in this neighborhood for 19 years and absolutely love it. It is the best kept secret in all of San Diego - as far as I'm concerned.

When you step off the porch of the Casita, you are in the most beautiful, fragrant shade garden. Relax on your private redwood deck and enjoy the pleasure of watching hummingbirds and butterflies play. Smell the extraordinary perfume of the trumpet trees and night blooming jasmine. You can catch the morning sun on the upper deck or the middle deck. Sit and relax in the blue alcove and you will feel like you've been transported to some tropical jungle. Wander into the back yard or down into the fruit orchard and pick some ripe, organically grown fruit. If you are a bird lover, visit the aviary where we have cockateils and budgies. Because we are located in a subtropical environment, our gardens and plants are beautiful year round. We also have great nightime views. Imagine how wonderful it would be to get away from the cold and snow and spend some time here in warm, sunny San Diego. Have a romantic getaway or bring the kids. We can accomodate up to 6 people. Come stay for a few days, a week or a month.

Downtown San Diego is a vibrant, energetic area with many fine restaurants, live music venues and broadway theater. We are very close to Coronao Island and the Silver Strand Beach, the San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park, Petco Park, the Convention Center, Seaport Village, San Diego Harbor, the Embarcadero, Old Town, Mission Hills, and much more.

Keywords: Charming one bedroom cottage near the Gaslamp area of San Diego; great nightime views; sleeps up to 6; 125 nt/$700 week/$2500 month.

My husband Jerry and I bought our house in 1992. We built a granny flat for my mother-in-law. She lived there until just recently when we moved her into a board and care at the age of 96. We have remodeled the granny flat and it is now Casita Encanto. We have a beautiful, unique piece of property close to downtown San Diego and thought that we would like to share this wonderful place with people from all over the world.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1992

Casita Encanto is extremely comfortable. The furniture is comfortable. The beds are comfortable. The towels are absorbant and soft. The colors are soothing. The entertainment system is state-of-the-art. The best part is the beauty of the gardens, the quiet of the neighborhood, and the feeling that you have been transported into a tropical hideaway. We are less than 10 minutes away from the Gaslamp District which has countless 4 and 5 star restaurants, live theater and great music venues. We are also close to Balboa Park, the San Diego Zoo, Old Town, Petco Park, the Embarcadero, Seaport Village, Coronado Island, to name just a few of great San Diego tourist areas.

Wonderful place! The guest house and gardens are very well maintained - next time we will spend more time there. It is near everything you may need as far as groceries, restaurants, and tourist facilities. The bed is very comfortable, the living area more than adequate, and washer/dryer very nice addition. Everything you could need for cooking any meal is provided and the property is very clean and beautiful. The owners/hosts were fabulous! We will be back...cannot wait!

The Capt. and his Lady

What can we add to the very favorable reviews listed above. Having lived in San Diego County for 50 years, the Encanto experience was delightful. The access to the major freeways made this a most desirable location for our visits to old friends. The surroundings enabled us to entertain friends. We were impressed with the gardens and the cleanliness of the Casita. We were used to "June Gloom" but the Casita's location was excellent for June weather. We can not say enough for the courtesy of the owners (and their guardian dogs). Having off-street parking was certainly a plus. When we return to the Mainland, we always pick a new place to stay. We would, without hesitation, recommend the Casita.

Very peaceful and convenient

A fantastic property. The unit was clean and well supplied when we arrived and the owners are a joy to meet. The bed was very comfortable and the kitchen among the best equipped we've ever encountered. The whole unit is very comfortable and the deck was a fantastic place to relax in the evenings or have a spot of breakfast before heading out for the day.

The location of the unit makes having a car a necessity, but being so equipped, you will find it to be very close to almost anything you may want to see in the area. The freeway is very close and it seemed we were able to get to almost all of our destinations within 10 minutes. Very convenient, and a small price to pay for absolute quiet and solitude in the evenings. Far better for travelers with small children who might appreciate a locale away from the hustle and bustle of the downtown.

All said, we had a lovely time. The pictures don't lie; this is a very nice place to spend a few days, or preferably more! The garden is stunningly pretty and the dogs make great company (Hi, Oso & Mo!).

Great value. If we're in the area, we'd stay here again in a heartbeat.

Truly Enchanted

I've lived in San Diego for 30 years, so I know the area well (and adore it! beautiful, so much to see and do, and great weather.) I needed a place to hole up with my two sweet kitties for three days while my home was being tented. I wanted someplace fully-equipped so I didn't have to leave my kitties alone, easy to get to, yet secluded and very quiet -- a tall order for a tourist town like this. The Casita was perfect. It's charming, very comfortable, immaculate, and any noise came from birds singing happily in the beautiful gardens. I spent much of my time on my computer, and was pleased to find the internet service reliable and very high-speed. And, of course, one couldn't ask for nicer, more considerate hosts than Deborah and Jerry.

Beautiful Oasis

This little cottage is a delight. The property is so beautiful you may be tempted to lie in the hammock surrounded by flowers instead of going to the beach. It's very private, and the owners are friendly and helpful.
