North Park 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.

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.

Cute cottage

  • 5 of 5
This place was definitely a good find. It was close to everything we wanted to see and do, and in a good neighborhood. The bars had live music and good food. Mike and Sharon are great and very welcoming. The only thing to keep in mind when booking this rental is that it has a window AC unit. My boyfriend didn't like the air blowing on him so it got a little warm but not enough to complain about. We will consider staying here again in the future!

Lovely little getaway spot

  • 5 of 5
We chose this cottage as it was close to my brother who we were visiting. Very comfortable and quiet and located close to many great attractions.
The cottage was very clean and spacious. Perfect size for two people. We didn't want to leave!

Comfortable & Bigger Than Expected

Comfortable & Bigger Than Expected
  • 5 of 5
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

  • 5 of 5
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!

Wonderful Cottage

  • 5 of 5
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!
