We love our cottage but of course our opinion is biased. Please click on 'Reviews' for unbiased opinions.
That said... if you want to walk to the Zoo, museums, dozens of local restaurants and bars, we have the place for you. We also have a DecoBike kiosk 1/2 block away and San Diego's downtown historic Gas Lamp district and Coronado beaches are just a 15 minute drive away. For sports enthusiasts will find golf, disc golf, tennis, swimming, hiking and running trails all within walking distance.
Built in 1911, our 105 year old stable has been converted to a comfortable 1 bedroom cottage complete with all the amenities of home.
Here are just a few:
Full kitchen with all the utensils needed to prepare a gourmet meal. Heated tile floors in the bathroom and a whirlpool tub, hair dryer, quality shampoo and body wash, plenty of towels. Queen-size bed with memory foam mattress top (you will this see mentioned in our guest reviews.) Walk-in closet (almost bedroom size) with a laundry room with front load washer and dryer. Broadband internet access with WIFI and a printer/scanner. HD Cable TV, Blu-ray player, Netflix, Pandora web browser & more. Private fenced patio with stainless steel 3-burner BBQ.
We love Craftsman style homes! Sharon is a Realtor and Michael is a General Contractor. Our passion is making our homes comfortable, functional and aesthetically pleasing.
Mike Bythewood purchased this cottage in 2007
Location, location, location! Centrally located North Park offers easy access to the most popular attractions San Diego has to offer. Great year-round weather and no bugs are a plus too! (We're both originally from southern states) Since moving to San Diego in 1983 we have resided in Point Loma, Ocean Beach, Pacific Beach and Downtown San Diego but North Park is by far our favorite place to live.
Our home is on a quiet, 1-block long section of Spruce. North Park is a centrally located San Diego neighborhood and an easy drive to Sea World, Coronado, Petco Park, Qualcomm Stadium, the downtown bayfront and dozens of other attractions.
Can't go wrong here. Very nice place. The owners have thought of everything to make your stay delightful.
This charming cottage, situated behind the owners property, is in a lovely neighbourhood and has everything that is required for a holiday home. It is well situated for exploring the wonderful sights in San Diego and has many restaurants in North Park within walking distance. Mike and Sharon, the owners, are discreet but available if you have any questions. We would not hesitate to stay here again the next time we visit the city.
We have stayed at many different places in San Diego over the years and without a doubt, this was by far the VERY BEST!!! The cottage is absolutely charming, in immaculate condition, and delightfully decorated. It is very centrally located to all San Diego activities, and in a very quiet neighborhood. The private patio was perfect for enjoying the outdoors and the bbq. We loved our stay!
This was the last of 13 different accommodations my husband and I stayed in during our 3 weeks in California. It was a great end to a great trip. The cottage is the perfect size for the 2 of us. It was spacious and private and had everything we could need. The washer and dryer were one of the biggest plus for us. We met Mike and Sharon upon arrival and their adorable dogs. The let us pick a couple of lemons from their lemon tree and they were delicious. From booking to leaving the cottage, everything was smooth, easy, and allowed us to have a great vacation. Thank you so much for a great stay.
This property was amazing. So comfortable...so central to everything...next to the park....so well maintained! I wish I could have stayed for a year.
The Cottage is better than a 5 star hotel. It is comfortable, roomy, clean, centrally located and has more amenities than most hotels. The whirlpool tub was awesome after a day of walking at Sea World and Balboa Park. Free parking, tons of restaurants near by and the soothing sound of running water from Mike and Sharon's Koi pond to lull you to sleep. The kitchen is well stocked for cooking meals and there are books and extras in the cottage for a day of reading or hanging out at the beach. It would have been nice to have time to cook a steak on the grill and eat out on the patio. The large walk in closet (room) was perfect for travelers with suit cases. And it was very nice having a washer dryer after a week on the road. I wished we could have stayed longer - I wish we could live there! The Cottage is tastefully decorated and is charming beyond belief. Quiet and peaceful I can't imagine a better place to stay. Thank you Mike and Sharon for providing such a wonderful option for visitors to San Diego. We will definitely be staying here again next time we visit. I can not recommend the Spruce Street Cottage enough. Perfect for traveling couples...especially if you are looking for a romantic get-a-way.
Our cottage is walking distance from Balboa park and the world famous San Diego Zoo.

*PLEASE NOTE THAT VRBO / HOMEAWAY CHARGES ALL RENTERS A VARIABLE "SERVICE FEE" WHICH WILL BE INCLUDED WHEN YOU REQUEST A QUOTE.
Here is VRBO / Homeaway's explaination of the service fee...
The service fee is paid by the traveler when booking through the HomeAway websites. This fee covers the cost of providing 24/7 customer support, enhanced site and mobile features for both owner and travelers, plus expanded marketing efforts to generate more exposure to global audiences. Additionally, when a traveler books and pays through HomeAway, they are eligible for the Book with Confidence Guarantee.
Paying the fee
Travelers pay the service fee by credit card when paying through the secure HomeAway checkout process. The service fee is only charged to the card once the booking has been accepted by the property owner or manager. The service fee is, on average, approximately 6% of the rental amount, excluding refundable deposit or taxes. This fee is lower than other travel websites that charge a similar fee.
Refunding the fee
The owner does not have the ability to discount or waive the service fee amount. The only time the service fee can be refunded is when an owner uses the Cancellation Refund feature from their dashboard and the cancellation is requested within the terms of the owner/manager's cancellation policy. However, if the reservation is not canceled and all payments fully refunded to the traveler, the service fee will not be refunded.
