We love our cottage but of course our opinion is biased. Please click on 'Reviews' for unbiased opinions.
That said... North Park is a great neighborhood with easy access to the San Diego Zoo, museums and literally dozens of local restaurants and bars. San Diego's downtown historic Gas Lamp district and Coronado beaches are just a 15 minute drive away. Sports enthusiasts will find golf, disc golf, tennis, swimming, hiking and running trails all within walking distance. We are 1 1/2 blocks from the eastern border of Balboa Park. Measuring approximately 1.5 x 1.5 miles and 1200 acres in size, it is one of the largest urban parks in the country.
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.

Why Mike Bythewood chose North Park
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.
What makes this Cottage unique
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.

We had the most amazing vacation in San Diego primarily because of the adorable cozy cottage on Spru
Convienently located to ANYTHING and ANYPLACE you would want to see or do. Leave the car behind and hop the bus.
Mike and Sharon ( the owners) made sure you had everything you could possibly need. Even a few tips about some local spots.
We would highly recommend this location.
Wishing you a safe journey and many more good VRBO experiences on your drive back to the east coast.
Happy trails to you,
Mike, Sharon, Snooki and The Duke
Couldn't have asked for anything better
This cottage is the perfect getaway for a couple. It is centrally located to all the sightseeing spot and a short walk from tons of restaurants and breweries. We loved this place. It is clean, private and the owners thought of everything to make our accommodations pleasant. I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants somewhere comfortable to stay for a week. A refreshing change from a standard hotel.
We recommend Mike and Sharon's vacation rental highly. It is exactly as pictured, with hospitable hosts and the location is fantastic, a short drive to most attractions and a nice walk to a wide variety of restaurants. Thank you Mike and Sharon.
Great walking neighborhood!
Our stay was great. The cottage was nicely detailed and very clean. The kitchen was very complete-a chef's dream. There was attention to detail. There was a nice private sitting area outside the cottage.
This is a perfectly adorable cottage with a quaint garden complete with hummingbirds, grill and a lemon tree in a nice neighborhood. Couldn’t have been better. I’d give it ten stars.
We had a very nice 2 week stay in the cottage- it was well appointed, and perfectly situated close to Balboa Park, shops and restaurants. The patio was lovely on warm afternoons.
Our cottage is walking distance from Balboa park and the world famous San Diego Zoo.
