Nicest home rented during past 18 years of visits to San Duego. Great bathroom and shower. Garden area is very nice. Very clean and would definitely rent again.

Perfect Cottage for Christmas...and any time of year!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Craftsman Cottage for the Christmas 2017 holiday. Everything was absolutely immaculate and beyond our expectations. We frequently use VRBO and were greatly impressed with the cleanliness, high quality, and attention to details that are evident here. We definitely plan to stay again! The yard & outdoor areas were like an oasis and I spent a lot of time reading in the sun. It was well situated and one can easily walk to Balboa Park, or get coffee/brunch at some great locales in North Park. We loved Coffee & Flowers. Everything in the description is true and we always had easy parking as well. Finally, the owner is amazing and so easy to communicate with. ENJOY your stay here...you won't want to leave!

Perfect place to stay while visiting San Diego!

  • 5 of 5

North Park is an amazing place to stay and Rick's place was exactly as described. The house was super comfortable and easy to move into! Not that we needed it but he even had body wash & conditioner.

The only thing that would have made it even better would have been bikes, cooler and beach chairs.

Perfect cottage in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We spent over a week in this cottage and felt at home. The kitchen is well-stocked and the outside patio and fountain was a plus. The home is clean and Rick was very attentive to details and responsive to our needs. The location - walking distance to North Park, Hillcrest, and Balboa Park - kept us busy. We hardly used our car! Hope to be back!

A lovely cottage on a nice quiet street. The owner thought of EVERYTHING!!! The outdoor space is just as nice as the cottage, which is saying a lot. The space is very comfortable, kitchen is well equipped, bathroom great, good internet.....a totally satisfying experience. If you have a chance to stay here you can count yourself lucky!!!
