Very Accommodating Owners

  • 5 of 5
This studio cottage contained every imaginable necessity, plus. The owners did everything to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. Nice private patio with couch, lounge, table and chairs offered outside relaxation for our evenings of a glass of wine and a card game.
Loads of spots nearby for us to dine out. We took short walks to the beach and the shuttle to Del Mar horse races. We also enjoyed shopping and the art galleries nearby.

Are you kidding me????

  • 5 of 5
I still think this place just cannot be real; it seemed as big of a fantasy as a mermaid, as I just could not have dreamed anything could be this perfect. When I read about it, I thought, this looks really good, when we arrived there, we both thought this is not just good, it is unbelievable, so cozy and warm, great décor, everything you would need, plus more. We have rented many places that have turned out to be good, but not many turn out to be awesome, this was. Judie and Dave were there for your every whim, and at the same time, gave you all the privacy you needed. The extras inside are special, don't want to spoil them, but there are many, and if you forgot something, don't worry, it is all there. I have never seen people take this much interest in what they provide to make your stay wonderful! We live two hours away and I felt as though we were in a beach town a million miles from home. Solana Beach, in itself, is really a great destination, so much to do and see in the area, but to have this place to cozy up in made it perfect. When we left, I forgot something, and there it was in the mail two days later. What more could you ask for? If I was asked what they could do to make it better, I would have to say "nothing", as it is hard to beat perfection. Can't wait to return.

Perfect Beach Cottage Get-a-way!!!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had a wonderful 3 day stay in this lovely cottage - celebrating our 20th anniversary!! We loved being so close to the beach - a block away! We also enjoyed walking into town in the morning and evenings to get a cup of coffee or a great meal - lots of restaurant options near by!! The owners, Dave and Judie were warm, welcoming and very hospitable! We will be recommending this to our friends and family and we can't wait to plan a return trip!!

WOW, WOW, WOW!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
Staying in the Mermaid Cottage was the best, most relaxing vacation ever. Judie and Dave provided every thing possible to make our stay enjoyable. We literally felt like we were staying in the home of good friends. The place is very comfortable & clean. The kitchen had many extras I didn't expect which left us saying WOW...she really does think of everything! The beach was so close and although public..seemed private. And there are many to choose from in close proximity. Having been to the beach in San Diego many times you would think I would have it down..BUT I've never had as much fun. The cottage provides you with beach umbrellas, beach chairs, boogie boards and even a little cooler for snacks. The cottage is filled with information on anything you could possibly think of to see or do. It truly is the little things that make the experience an awesome one. And this cottage has many, many amazing little things.

Love the Cottage! Can't wait to return. So Cozy and comfortable. Judie and Dave are wonderful Hosts. The cottage is in great proximity to the ocean for surfing, blocks from shopping, walking distance to restaurants. If you truly want to get away I highly recommend the Cottage. So relaxing and I must say a diamond in the gem.
