About Marjorie Taylor

We love living in North Park and we are also passionate about traveling. Marjorie is an oil painter whose artwork can be viewed in the cottage. Steve is an avid bicyclist who has traveled from coast to coast in the US as well as throughout Europe. Their dog, Maya, loves to hike in the nearby canyons.

Marjorie Taylor purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Marjorie Taylor chose San Diego County

We not only bought a vacation rental here, but also live in North Park. The location can't be beat. This eclectic neighborhood offers the best of San Diego.

What makes this cottage unique

We love walking to the nearby restaurants, hiking in the canyon or hopping on the bus downtown to catch a ballgame. Its a quick drive to the beach, and just minutes from the Zoo and Balboa Park. Music, Theatre and Art events are within walking distance.

Pleasant, Unique San Diego Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I spent a pleasant week in early February at "Maya's Cottage". We loved our stay! The cottage was very comfortable, located in a quiet, modest neighborhood, a short walk to retail stores and restaurants in the North Park area and a short drive to magnificent Balboa Park and downtown San Diego. The hosts have taken great care to make sure the cottage is well-supplied with everything you will need. There are lots of nice artistic touches throughout, including Marjorie's art work. Marjorie and Steve are very accessible if you need to contact them. Perhaps the best feature is the peaceful garden in back. We spent a lot of time exploring San Diego but were always happy to return and relax in the cottage. We are frequent renters through HomeAway and other sites, and this was truly one of our best experiences. We highly recommend it.

My wife and I stayed here for our 5th anniversary. The location was amazing! Just minutes from Everything! The furnished kitchen allowed us to save lots of money by eating in. The patio was great quiet space in the mornings. We definitely hope to stay here again on future trips!

Perfect location, great little house, awesome host!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 4 from Montreal and we stayed at Maya's cottage for 4 nights and we loved it. It has everything that you need, cute little area in the back to have a nice drink in the evening, close to everything. Marjorie is a great host with that additional personal touch that is so appreciated. Thank you very much!

Great Location, Great Cottage, Great Hosts...

  • 5 of 5

Maya's Cottage is very comfortable and is located in a great, safe neighborhood. The location is very convenient to Coronado Island, along with Balboa Park and the Zoo. The cottage exceeded our expectations. The highlight of the cottage was the private courtyard. It was very comfortable and the greenery was top-notch. We wanted to thank Marjorie and Steve for being such great hosts. We will definitely be back!

Great location, private getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Owners were accessible but not intrusive. Very generously left a gift basket and the house was completely stocked with everything we could need for a week. Worth it for the backyard getaway alone, but if you venture out, North Park is a two block walk away. Thanks for a great stay!
