Our guests love this cottage! : LotusCottages is located just steps away from to the Pacific Ocean. Surrounded by 100-year old palm trees, you can relax on the decks, admire the exotic plants, and enjoy the wonderful sounds of the surf and the sounds of the palm trees whispering in the wind. You'll be in your own world. LotusCottages is one of San Diego's most enjoyable beach vacation rentals.

Designed by an award-winning architect. Built by a master carpenter. The detailing is incredible.

Listen to the waves at night. Surf the waves during the day. Whatever you do, we know you will enjoy the ambiance of these beautiful, historical cottages.

We have just completed renovating the first of the Lotus Cottages.

The first of the LotusCottages is a charming historic beach cottage built in 1922 and lovingly restored in 2007. This 'new old house' is fully wood paneled.

The cottage sleeps up to four people comfortably.

Included are two wonderful decks and a modern gourmet kitchen

Architect Designed Master Carpenter Built: This very special, 1922 knotty pine paneled, Sears and Roebuck beach kit cottage was lovingly restored in 2007. It was designed to accommodate San Diego's extraordinary year-round weather.

In the front is a private gated yard elevated above the street and bordered with palm trees. Here you can enjoy a morning coffee in our beautiful and comfortable wicker chairs.

A delightful gourmet kitchen awaits you just inside the front door and includes two under-the-counter refrigerators, an under-the-counter freezer, a Jenn Air range and a microwave. The large counter space and tall stools on the opposite side create a fun and interactive place to eat.

The entire cottage is surrounded by 280 degrees of deck, has keyless entry and there’s even a hidden stackable washer and dryer just off the back patio.

If you appreciate true craftsmanship, you will love this cottage. No matter where you are in this cozy abode you will feel relaxed.

Some History on our Beach Cottage: 100 years ago, the ground underneath LotusCottages was the beach. In 1918, an amusement park, Wonderland Park, was located here. The cottage sits on the ground which was formerly the concrete pad around the Wonderland Park Carousel. In 1922, three beach cottage kits were erected on Lotus Street. Today, these cottages are some of the oldest Ocean Beach structures.

LotusCottages is magical!

We were evacuated during the California Wildfires and so we rented this cottage for four days. We really enjoyed staying there. I enjoyed the fact that because it has been recently renovated, everything was brand new. I am also a history buff and standing on the part of the back deck that used to be Wonderland simply intrigued and excited me. The cottage was cozy and comfortable and the decks gave us an opportunity to get away from people which is what I really needed to do. I loved the stained glass windows in the bedroom and bathroom and the sound system was pretty terrific. I have a penchant for wood, so I really enjoyed the paneleing and cabinets. They are beautiffuly done. The beach really is maybe a two minute walk away and the pier is very close. All and all my husband and I had a great time there and in spite of worrying whether or not our home would be there when we returned, we were truly able to relax and enjoy the beach community life and there is plently to do within walking distance. The only thing I could say that "could" be a problem is parking if you have more than one car. There is parking on the property for one car, otherwise you have to park on the street. Though it is a beach community which by nature has a lot of people, I felt very safe there.
The cottage was setup the way it was presented in the advertising, it is clean and very well maintained, I didn't have to deal with the owner much but he responded to my questions or requests quickly. I would recommend this property to anyone wanting to be at the beach but have privacy too. We mostly just cooked in the kitchen but we did go to Thee Bungalow for dinner one night and really enjoyed it.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your kind words. I am so glad that we were able to provide you a temporary home during that trying time. We're glad you enjoyed LotusCottages so much. We put a lot of energy, effort and love into restoring this special historic beach cottage. The knotty pine paneling is so beautiful and it has such a terrific golden glow. The romantic night-time lighting in the living room and the bedroom make for such wonderful, enchanting memories. It's also great to know that you enjoyed our kitchen so much. Isn't that JennAir system terrific! I love the high-tech glass cooking surface. Again, thank you so much for appreciating the beauty and the history of LotusCottages.

Our Second Stay!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Nov 8, 2013
  • Stayed: Oct 2013
My husband and I returned to stay at Lotus II for our second time. While visiting our daughter, this was a just right space for us. The cottage was very clean, had everything we needed and was a short walk to everything from the beach to interesting restaurants and shops.
We could've used a little more in the way of silverware and the beach chairs and grill need replacing. The patio was a cozy place to sit, read and sip a glass of wine. We appreciated the washer and dryer and also thanks for the laundry soap!
The bed was very comfortable and the sheets were top quality.
I would not recommend staying here with kids but it is just right for two! Thanks for a great stay and for good communication when making our arrangements.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for staying with us two times -- we're really looking forward to your returning to visit your daughter again next year. We truly appreciate your kind comments. For many couples and families, this is just the right place! It's an extremely cozy, comfortable Sears and Roebuck "kit beach cottage" -- and it's just a few steps away from the Pacific Ocean. The Historic Cottage reminds me of the place my family had on the beach when I was a child, and it's great to share that experience with and with other families. I apologize for the grill not being fully cleaned before your visit, and the missing silverware. Both have been rectified, and we have also upgraded and improved all of our beach chairs, beach umbrellas and beach toys for the 2014 season!

Again, thank you very, very much for staying with us at the Lotus Cottages. We really look forward to hosting you again!

This place is so great. We fell in love with OB all over again. Thank you so much for letting us stay here. This cottage is absolutely gorgeous – you did a GREAT JOB with every detail. From all the mini-fridge space to the backpack beach chairs. You thought of everything. We can’t thank you enough. We will definitely come back! Thanks! It was amazing!

A fabulous stay at Lotus Cottages.

A fabulous stay at Lotus Cottages. We had great weather – sunny, 70s and especially enjoyed the proximity to the beach – people watching – surfers, volleyball players, dog walkers, joggers, children mesmerized by the surf … as well as walking down the bike path along the river, with a plethora of birds on the left and skateboarders on the right. We loved Torrey Pines – both the beach and the hiking in the reserve.
The cottage met all of our needs – a great home base.

We loved the LotusCottage! Everything about it was perfect –location, layout and cleanliness. The LotusCottage staff were very helpful and always available to answer questions. We liked it so much we had all our friends that live locally come by to see it. After returning to OB after 25 years, it’s good to know it has not changed!! When we come back to OB we would definitely stay in the LotusCottage

We stayed in this beautiful cottage for a week and loved every minute of it.
Everything is so close which meant a lot since we had our six months old boy with us.
We also recommend this well equipped kitchen as it made us tasty dinners every evening.

The OB cottage was amazing!

The OB cottage was amazing! It was a catalyst for old friends to meet again, many of us had moved away from OB (some do get out) and it’d been overdue to see each other. OB is always an amazing loving beach town and the Cottage is definitely Ocean Beach!
Thank You

Many fond memories

  • Submitted: May 4, 2011
  • Stayed: Dec 2010
All the staff at Lotus Cottage are to be congratulated for a job well done. Our experience here far exceeded our expectations.

Both of us leave with many fond memories, not only of the OB community, but of our stay at Lotus Cottage, too. Neither would we hesitate to recommend Lotus Cottage as a beautiful place to stay, relax and enjoy the Pacific Ocean.

Take in a sunset or two.
