Amazing getaway at the cottage

  • 5 of 5

This property is amazing, just a few houses from the bay and across the street from the beach. All of the finishes and amenities in the house were high quality, and the outdoor space was outstanding. We were able to eat all of our meals outdoors and enjoyed use of the enclosed patio space. We also rented the studio which worked out great for our college aged kids. Garage parking is a premium too. Had a quirky issue with the water heater but Owners responded immediately and someone was out within the hour! I hope to return next year!

Clean, accommodating, and private

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved our stay. The patio really is a great place to lounge and relax. Matt did a great job making it private which give a good feel. The house was clean with everything well laid out easy to find. Matt had no problem answering my text and phone calls when I had any questions. Very accommodating. Easy walk to food, drink, rentals and most of all the beach. We plan on staying here again and again.

Ideal Beach Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful cottage for a long weekend and it simply was not long enough. The owner was extremely helpful and accommodating. This cottage is so well equipped you truly could just move in. It was so clean and comfortable and had everything you could need for a perfect stay, we could just grab our towels and walk to the beach or the bay. It is located in walking distance many restaurants, bars and a supermarket close by. The outdoor area is a major bonus, very relaxing and private. We will definitely stay here again, a true home away from home.

The Perfect Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property Christmas week 2015 for 3 adults. It fit our needs in every way. A little more common space than other rentals we looked at. The outside court yard was a wonderful addition when others came to spend the afternoon or evening with us. Bedroom was clean and comfortable, bathroom, kitchen and living rm were all roomy. Kitchen had just about everything we needed. Basic items were provided which made it nice for starting out. Having the garage to park was a huge plus as parking in Mission Beach is hard to come by. We look forward to renting it again in fall 2016. Thank you Matt & Agnes for a wonderful stay and great communication.

Nice Beachy Bungalow

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in the cottage!. Its set up is absolutely perfect for 'inside out' living. The house is comfortable! When we had questions or minor issues Matt was readily available to respond. Super cute beachy decor. And they accept dogs!

We had a few friends visit and BBQ w us and THEY adored the place too.! We always stay on South Mission as we like to be near the volleyball, but this location WAS SO CONVENIENT! We literally walked EVERYWHERE!

We will definitely come back! Enjoyed SO much!

PS- Our son and girlfriend stayed in the upstairs studio and LOVED it as well.

THX for having us Matt!

Great place

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time here. I am originally from San Diego and miss the beach! The place was great for entertaining a few family/friends, because of the common space - french doors open to outside space to create a really nice open feel. The interior was furnished nicely. You could probably sleep 1-2 more people, but it was perfect for the two of us. Located near some great restaurants and bars - walking distance to mission and pacific beach neighborhoods. Easy access to water, both bay and beach. Matt was responsive and easy to work with. I would highly recommend this place for couples looking for a laid back San Diego experience.
