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.

Cozy cottage in a quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Owners live right next door and were there to greet us when we arrived. Marjorie showed us around the cottage, but otherwise gave us complete privacy. We had a great vacation.

Too cute!!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was the cutest ever! The three of us where totally comfortable. The neighborhood is great. Anything that you might need is a short walk away. We used car services to get to other areas of town that were too far to walk.

Charming cottage in a great area of San Diego!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just spent a week in the cottage and really enjoyed its layout, its beautiful back patio, and its proximity to restaurants and shops in the North Park area. Walking distance to everything, very clean and comfortable place. The owner, Marjorie was always available to answer questions and/or requests. So a big thank you to Marjorie and Steve for such a great hospitality!
