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.

Perfect place to stay in San Diego

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay. It was so nice to come back "Home" after a long day of sight seeing. The bed was so comfortable, we slept great. The house had everything we could need and more. There are so many restaurants within waking distance, it was great. Marjorie and Steve were very accommodating and even left a little goodie basket for us. That was a very nice gesture. We will definitely be back

It is very very lovely

  • 5 of 5

The trip was for attending two conventions , and in the same time writting one article and one grant. The place is charming, with a wonderful spirit . The sorrounding area with nice restaurants, the Cnvention Center and the Ocean one short Uber drive away. It is worthwhile to rent a bike during the stay, If you like to make your own food, and sit in the garden and relax... and to have prvacy for meditation or reading / writting , this is an extraordinary choice

Beautiful and Comfortable and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

Maya's Cottage is a lovely, convenient hideaway. It is beautifully decorated with original art. It is within walking distance of great coffee houses, restaurants, shops, and gyms. Steve and Marjorie are gracious and responsive hosts. The backyard patio is private and lush. It is our first choice for a stay in San Diego.
