San Diego Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

We love our cottage but we of course our opinion is biased. Please click on 'Reviews' for unbiased opinions.

That said... if you want to walk to the Zoo, museums, dozens of local restaurants and bars, we have the place for you. San Diego's downtown historic Gas Lamp district and Coronado beaches are just a 15 minute drive away. For sports enthusiasts will find golf, disc golf, tennis, swimming, hiking and running trails all within walking distance.

Built in 1911, our 101 year old stable has been converted to a comfortable 1 bedroom cottage complete with all the amenities of home.

Here are just a few:

Full kitchen with all the utensils needed to prepare a gourmet meal. Heated tile floors in bathroom and a claw-foot tub, hair dryer, quality shampoo and body wash, plenty of towels. Queen-size bed with memory foam mattress top (you will this see mentioned in our guest reviews.) Walk-in closet (almost bedroom size) and adjacent laundry with front load washer and dryer. Broadband internet access with WIFI and a printer/scanner. HD Cable TV, Blu-ray player, Netflix, Pandora. Private fence patio with stainless steel 3-burner BBQ.

We love Craftsman style homes! Sharon is a Realtor and Michael is a General Contractor. Our passion is making our homes comfortable, functional and aesthetically pleasing.

Mike Bythewood purchased this cottage in 2007

Location, location, location! Centrally located North Park offers easy access to the most popular attractions San Diego has to offer. Great year-round weather and no bugs are a plus too! (We're both originally from southern states) Since moving to San Diego in 1983 we have resided in Point Loma, Ocean Beach, Pacific Beach and Downtown San Diego but North Park is by far our favorite place to live.

Our home is on a quiet, 1-block long section of Spruce. North Park is a centrally located San Diego neighborhood and an easy drive to Sea World, Coronado, Petco Park, Qualcomm Stadium, the downtown bayfront and dozens of other attractions.

We were visiting San Diego for a wedding and decided to make a long weekend out of it. Right away, Michael (owner) was extremely timely with his email responses and follow through. We hadn't decided on whether to bring our pets or not and they were very accommodating - Michael and Sharon were fine not knowing until we arrived.

We loved this charming cottage- it's a stand alone home behind the owners but they did a magnificent job making it feel completely separate. It's 1-bedroom but there was another room at the back of the house so we were able to really spread out our things- it was a pleasant surprise! The bed and bedding were soooo comfortable!

The best part of this home is the location- we were a short drive from the Gaslamp District, San Diego Zoo and even drove to the USS Midway all very quickly. Parking was not a problem at all at the cottage which was also a surprise!

We highly recommend this cottage and would stay again in a heart beat! Thank you Michael and Sharon!

Little Treasure in Hip Neighborhood

This groovy little cottage in North Park, San Diego was perfect for our needs. The house itself is very well appointed, with everything you would need for a short, or not so short stay. It was quiet, and the owners are respectful of your privacy. My wife was running her first Half Marathon downtown, and this location was less than 15 minutes by car away. Better yet, the location of the cottage is within walking distance of a great area (North Park) with restaurants, bike shops, the Zoo, Balboa Park, night spots... We loved it, and would highly recommend it!

The pics shown are an accurate representation of this delightful cottage. Upon my arrival, Mike greeted me and answered all of my questions. Everything was clean, neat and in working order. They even have a printer! I stayed here during a heavy downpour of rain and did not pack a jacket. I called Mike and he provided me with Sharon's raincoat. Now that's customer service! Thank you so much!

Great find

What a perfect location for Balboa Park attractions! It was also within easy access of major highways to other San Diego attractions. We really liked the neighborhood and took every opportunity to walk to restaurants or just check out the Craftsmen homes and flowers. The neighbors were very friendly, and we found some Midwestern connections on our walks. The cottage was very charming, comfortable and quiet. The comfy bed was welcome after a long day of sightseeing. The heated floor in the bathroom was a nice touch. Our first night slept with the window open to hear the soothing water in the koi pond. A luxury coming from a record breaking Chicago winter! It was obvious that Mike and Sharon thought about their guests in creating this wonderful haven. We appreciated the wireless printer complete with specific directions which allowed us to print our boarding passes before arriving at the airport. Mike promptly answered our emails and phone calls. This is one of the best VRBO rentals we have stayed at in our travels.
