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
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.
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.
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.
Our stay at Maya's Cottage was perfect! This quaint little house had it all...location, amenities, and so much more! From the moment that we arrived, we knew that we had chosen wisely for our stay in San Diego. We were warmly greeted by Marjorie and given a quick tour of the house. Everything was neat and clean...as well as charming. Every detail to make our stay a comfortable one was taken care of from linens to a fully stocked kitchen...even o.j. and milk in the frig! Many thanks for all of the information on San Diego that was tucked into the binder. The little patio in the back was an added treat for some quiet time after a busy day of exploring. We especially enjoyed the North Park neighborhood with all of the Craftsmen style homes. If and when we return to San Diego, this is where we will be staying. Many, many thanks, Marjorie & Steve!
Maya's cottage was perfect for the two of us in San Diego for a wedding. Loved having breakfast on the back patio. I especially loved the paintings throughout the cottage and googled the artist. What a surprise! I'll let you do the same. The hosts made sure that our accommodations were memorable. Next time we come back to San Diego, we'll be staying here.
We felt right at home here right away. What we all look for: clean, comfortable, private, parking right in front of our door, very nice neighborhood, easy walk or drive to anything you want, all things in cottage worked, front stoop for morning sun, private patio in back for any time, washer/dryer, full kitchen, super comfortable bed.
Would stay here again.
Thanks Marjorie & Steve!
My husband and I stayed in this fabulous, quiet and comfortable cottage for several days on a trip that was exhausting but exciting for us as well. Our son was returning from deployment and we had moved our daughter in law and infant granddaughter back from Las Vegas, so having a very inviting welcoming place to stay and relax after the big reunion was hugely appreciated. The cottage is so lovely and well-equipped with everything you could possibly need! We were greeted with a gift basket on the counter as well as a few thoughtful items in the refrigerator....what a really neat and thoughtful touch that the owners did and we sincerely appreciated it. The back patio was so adorable and relaxing. It easily accommodated 6 of us and a baby when were all together for a bit of a welcome home/birthday celebration for our son. And I have to say Marjorie was so very kind, communicative from the very first email sent many months ago when planning this trip, and quite attentive to all the details. She was also so accommodating. Our oldest son drove down from Laguna Niguel for the homecoming as well and ended up needing a place to stay for the night and Marjorie said it was no problem for him to stay on the sofa/sleeper in the cottage with us. He was really impressed with the cottage as well....thought it was really cool...not to mention in walking distance to some wonderful restaurants. We had to idea just how easy and accessible they were until we ventured out our 3rd night as it was so quiet and relaxing at Marjorie's cottage. We had very easy access to anywhere we need to go. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and since both our sons are stationed in California for a few years, we will be returning for a stay here at this Charming Cottage should there be an opening!!
Maya’s cottage is our home away from home in San Diego.
We find the location to be the perfect setting to explore all that San Diego has to offer.
The cottage is situated in the heart of North Park, a vibrant, fun, growing community. It is close to Balboa Park and an easy drive to anywhere in San Diego, including the beaches.
The cottage is a perfect retreat for two people. It is casual, informal, and charming. It is well equipped with everything that we need in order to be comfortable and enjoy our vacation time. It has a lovely outside courtyard where we can dine and entertain. Best of all, it is decorated with Marjorie’s beautiful paintings!
The owners Marjorie and Steve live next-door and are always on hand to help if needed; always helpful and never intrusive!
We would not consider staying anywhere else!
