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.
Great dog friendly rental near Balboa park and downtown. Quiet and pretty neighborhood. Well stocked kitchen and comfortable living quarters.
Mike and Sharon were such gracious hosts and so very nice. The cottage offered us a place to relax and unwind following our excursions around San Diego and Coronado Island. It seemed as if everywhere was within a ten minute drive, and sometimes just a 5 minute walk. Balboa Park was not much more than a stone's throw from the cottage and the North Park restaurants offered amazing meals, whether they be breakfast (Cardamom Cafe), lunch or dinner (Smoking Goat). I usually stress a little when staying in more populous areas, but the cottage made me feel at home and stress free. The kitchen was fully outfitted, the bathroom was 5-star and the bed provided the most comfortable sleep. We could unwind in the living area or sit on the cute little patio with a babbling fountain and a koi pond on the other side of the fence. Mike and Sharon provided a full list of restaurants and activities in the cottage; and always inquired if we needed anything. One of our best vacations ever. I could say so much more, but simply put - it was wonderful. Thank You.
We've stayed twice now and are already trying to sort out the exact dates of our next stay. It's incredibly clean, private, comfortable, in a fantastic location and just SO relaxing. Plus, you're greeted with the fantastic smells of a fresh lemon tree as you head in and the soothing sounds of flowing water from the owner's backyard. Speaking of the owners, they are friendly and helpful people who truly go above and beyond. We just can't say enough positive things about the property and the owners!
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!
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.
