About Aaron

Hi there, my name is Aaron, thanks for taking the time to consider my beach cottage. I'm so lucky to be able call San Diego my home, and I take full advantage of it! When not relaxing and enjoying Mission Beach, you'll find me (or maybe you won't) at sea running sail yacht and scuba diving charters. If you have any questions regarding the area, things to do, or anything else, please don't hesitate to ask.

Aaron purchased this studio in 2004

Why Aaron chose San Diego County

This cottage is located on one of the nicest, well kept Mission Beach Courts you'll find. During your stay you'll run across friendly neighbors, nightlife and shopping that is easily within walking distance, and obviously, the beach!

What makes this studio unique

One of my favorite features of the cottage is it's large outside patio with BBQ. There is a table that seats 3 for a nice summertime outdoor dinner, a sitting area with a wood burning fire pit, and your within a few steps of the sand.

Perfect Little Escape

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stay here for a long weekend. Not being from the area its always hard to figure out the area to be in. This location was ideal. about 1 min to the beach, and 1 min from the main road for all our ride share pick ups. an easy quick walk to Pacific Beach. So many places to eat/drink/and relax.

The cottage itself was quaint, clean, and quiet. It was perfect for us, as it had a comfortable bed, a place to sit, and bathroom with HOT water. We didn't spend a ton of time there, which was the point of being on the beach. Would definietly stay here again, and highly recommend it.

Perfect for two!

  • 5 of 5

Being back in San Diego for the weekend was amazing! The cottage was clean and perfect size for my husband, myself and our two dogs. It is steps from the beach which is dog friendly before 9a and after 6p. This was our first encounter to the ocean for our pets and they absolutely loved it.

Has everything you need despite its small size

  • 4 of 5

My wife, 11 month old and I stayed here last week. Despite this studios small size we managed to make it all work. We borrowed a travel crib from a friend and left it at the foot of the bed for our son.

We ate most meals out but the kitchen was accommodating for the ones we ate in. Just bagels in the toaster and heating up pizza in the oven.

The garage is useable for a small car but I'd recommend circling once or twice for street parking. We had a Toyota Camry which fit with a few inches in the front and back and typically a side mirror folded in. We would use it as a last priority because it's a process to get in.

Here's my wishlist for this place-

1. There's one closet rod to hang clothes but no real spot to fold clothes and get them out of your suitcase. We had 3 suitcases unfolded on the floor the whole time which takes up a lot of floor space. A bed frame with storage underneath would be a nice.

2. The front deck should be redone. The multi level deck isn't a great use of space and a lot of the screw heads are proud of the boards. This aspect isn't of the place isn't kid friendly.

3. Get a front door knob with an electronic code. The key rings come apart really easily and I was always scared I'd loose a key at the beach.

4. Include a garage door opener remote. It's a pain to get out and open the door.

In summary to those potential renters - Stay outside! You're in beautiful San Diego and shouldn't be sitting inside this place during the day. There's a 10 plus miles of boardwalk in PB alone so get rent a bike or go for a walk.

Fantastic place

  • 5 of 5

Such a great place. So close to the beach! Loved the little neighborhood vibe too. A little lacking in amenities. The third bed is a couch and didn't get sheets for that until our last day. Overall a great place!!!!

Hated to leave!

  • 4 of 5

We had a lot of fun and the cottage it was nice. It could of been a little cleaner but I'm sure it's hard to do deep cleaning when you have the summer turnovers. I was thankful we could check in at 2;30. I would definitely recommend to family and friends!

Small but perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for two full weeks. The place is smaller than it looks in the photos, but it was perfect for my husband & I. The wireless internet didn't work the whole two weeks we were there, but because we have unlimited data we didn't want to bother the owner about it. The garage is extremely small, but my husband was able to fit our compact rental car in it. Anything bigger wouldn't have fit, so be prepared for that. The place is close enough to the beach to be amazing but far enough away to not have to deal with the busyness of the boardwalk area. Its also only a little over a mile away from Belmont park & restaurants. Although the beach house has vacation rentals all around it, it was quiet overall. However, my husbands wetsuit was stolen from outside the front door where it was left to dry for a few hours. So don't leave your things outside because there are many people that pass by that use the walkway in the front of the cottage to get to the beach. Other than being a victim of a thief (which isn't the owner's fault) the overall stay was wonderful. We will return to this vacation rental again & again!
