About Mary Donnelly

I grew up in New York and came out to San Diego to attend college many (many) years ago and I haven't left yet. I love living in San Diego and I love my house. I spend my free time growing veggies and working on my historical house.

Mary Donnelly purchased this cabin in 1999

Why Mary Donnelly chose Hillcrest

I didn't plan on living in Hillcrest but when I saw the house I knew it was for me. I am a cook and although the kitchen is small it works perfect. This home suits me perfectly.

What makes this cabin unique

I love the neighborhood, the walking to everything lifestyle, hearing the zoo animals at night from my yard. The beautiful exotic flowers everywhere. Most of all the friendly people.

a nice getaway

  • 4 of 5
A small but well contained cabin, in a pleasant neighbourhood. Mary left a snack to get us through and checked up on our needs. There was a slight problem with parking, but we did have a full sized truck and trailer. It was within walking distance of Balboa Park as well. It made a nice getaway ! Thanks!

Tax Season Relief

  • 5 of 5
After a brutal tax season this little slice of peace and quiet was just what the doctor ordered. Arrived in the midst of an unusual spring-time Santa Ana (hot hot hot!) and spent much of my time on the patio with my feet up and a good book in my lap keeping an eye on a hummingbird building a nest in the patio cover. Very convenient location - easy access to Hwys 163 and 5, Hillcrest shopping, dining & services and walking trails through Balboa Park. Mary was welcoming and gracious. It was a great find for this San Diego native, and will stay on my list for future return trips. Thank you, Mary!

Perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5
I came to the cabin in the woods to finish a book I am writing. It couldn’t be more perfect, a quiet oasis in a sweet neighborhood close to everything. The unit has everything one needs to live for short to mid-term. My stay is 3 months and I want for nothing; complete kitchen with all amenities, full size refrigerator, and private washer/dryer. The two private patios are perfect for having friends over for a visit as it is 75 degree’s out in March! Mary was very helpful with everything I needed, even talking to my sister about buying a car! - Lovely stay.

Had a fantastic time!!!

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for a private, secluded place close to wonderful restaurants,within walking distance to Balboa Park and the world famous San Diego Zoo-this is the place to be! We parked our car and walked everywhere. The cabin is extremely clean and very well equipped with what ever you need and was surrounded by beautiful plants with plenty of hummingbirds! Mary was a friendly and gracious host, honestly, we really hated to leave!

Cabin in the canyon

  • 3 of 5
Mary was gracious over the phone yet not so helpful when we arrived. We had a plumbing problem that was unresolved by the time we left. If you plan to cook the kitchen was not fully equipped as stated in the review. The room and ambience was peaceful and quiet yet the size of the room is deceiving in the photo even though she put the dimensions. There are many stairs to negotiate and in rainy weather they are hazardous.

Owner's Response: Their was just no making this couple happy.

The cottage has all the appliances seen in the pictures plus a brand new dish washer. The couple asked for a food processor, which is not standard so I loaned them mine. They did experience a leak in the kitchen from the installation of the new dishwasher but when the plumber arrived they did not let him in.

The picture of the main room has the dimensions right on it so I don’t know how they can say it was deceiving. I think they wanted some money instead.

As far as the comment that I was not helpful - lease read the other comments left.
