About Jera Caricato

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.

Jera Caricato purchased this studio in 2004

Why Jera Caricato 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 4 for a nice summertime outdoor dinner, a sitting area with a wood burning fire pit, and your within a few steps of the sand.

Location was perfect. Some amenities could be better.

I will look this place up first and foremost if/when I plan my next trip to SD. However, the pillows made sleeping slightly uncomfortable and the cable TV did not work (or at least I could not figure out how it worked). But then when you're staying steps away from the ocean boardwalk why would you sit inside and watch TV? Has a great front deck with a table and chairs allowing for a relaxed morning breakfast with the sound of ocean waves crashing in the background, or views of calm night skies to enjoy the peacefulness with a glass of wine or champagne.

Owner's Response: We're so glad you enjoyed the cottages location! It really is in the best part of Mission Beach. I'm not sure what happened with the cable TV, I haven't heard any issues with it before your stay or since, but I'll look into it. We hope you come again in the future!

Great Mission Beach Location. We stayed in the cottage because I was coming to a conference in San Diego. We had a great time! We could walk literally a few steps to the beach. Walking distance to rent bikes, go to eat, and other attractions. The neighbors were all very friendly! The cottage was as described. Bed comfortable. No problems with cable tv or internet. Cottage had a front deck so we could enjoy sitting out front and enjoying the weather. My only complaints were that there was old french bread and old food sitting in the oven when I went to use it, and the cottage smelled a little musty.

Great Location!

  • 4 of 5

The condo was as pictured and the location is fabulous! You can walk down to Mission or Pacific Beach restaurants and bars and being that close to the beach is ideal. Great price for the location! Most of the properties around the home seem to be rentals as well, our neighbors were very quiet. The deck space is great! We spent a lot of time out there.

Would we stay here again? Yes. But, we will do some things differently. The garage is tiny - our Ford Fusion barely fit and it's inconvenient to pull in/out. Next time we will get groceries before we check in so we can park and not move the car again. Good news is you don't need your car! We walked everywhere, or Uber'd. We will bring our own bath towels next time, the 2 available were old and thin. And, we were disappointed that there were no beach chairs and just 1 small boogie board available. And, there is no firepit on the deck as the listing says. I hope they will replace that before we return next. I did send an email on the second day of our stay about the items that were not there as advertised, but I never heard back. We'll be back because it's a great spot for a great price, but we'll bring some of our own stuff next time!

Location! Location! Location!

The home away description of the cottage is accurate - bathroom and beach towels, and kitchenware were provided

(although they need a new coffee maker)

The cottage was within walking distance of everything especially the beach - or walk the other direction to Mission Bay !


Parking in the area is horrible!

Getting into the garage was difficult with our Honda Odyssey Van (we were warned ahead of time) Note to self: next time

bring smaller car! However we rarely drove anywhere because we were within walking distance of everything!

Garage door opener was broken so we had to open and close it manually. Though we really didn't drive that often. The

owner was appreciative of being notified and said it would be fixed.

And yes - we would gladly stay again!

Perfect Beach Cottage in an incredible spot.

  • 5 of 5

Aaron's beach cottage was perfect for our long weekend visit. It is only seconds from the Ocean and everything Mission Beach has to offer. The cottage was clean and had all the necessities for beach life and provided us with a comfortable and private place to stay. It is way better than staying at the large hotel chains and we will definitely stay here again.

I also recommend contacting the owner, Aaron Berco, to book a sunset and bubbly sailing tour of the bay. He is a wonderful captain and will take you on a relaxing and highly enjoyable sailing adventure.

Mission Beach Cottage

  • 3 of 5

The place was cute,but missing a few things.There was only 1 coffee and no drinking glasses.There was suppose to be 2 rolls of toilet paper and there wasn't so we had to go out and buy more right away.The shower leaked badly and needs to be repaired (the floor really got wet) The bath towels were very thin and there was only two.

If it had a little tender loving care it would be a nice place to stay.The location is great.
