Great place!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this cottage. The location, landscaping, wood trim and craftsman style made it feel like home. The bed was comfortable and the updated shower and bathroom very nice. We appreciated the privacy and available parking! Walking distance to coffee shop and grocery store. Great place!

Hey, this place is fantastic!! The living room, dining room, kitchen, foyer, bedroom and bathroom are all separate. The front lawn area is a patio with picnic table, two sun lounge chairs and two wooden chairs - and a fountain and grass lawn. Even the backyard area has two chairs on the porch and two chairs down in the yard. A/C, ceiling fans and a floor fan assist with 24 hour comfort. All of this is within a fence in area where no one from the street knows you are there. Okay, neighborhood. You are within .7 miles of several craft beer places and foodies. We walked each night to these joints. If you don't love this cottage and property, then you don't like ice cream. The owner came to see us and gave us some helpful tips. Note that the windows open and you can have a great breeze going through your home away from home. If you like a morning walk or some historical musing, Balboa Park is right there. Highly recommended. LOTS of space for the money.

Great Spot!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is located in a great area of San Diego. By car it's only 10-15 minutes to downtown, Coronado, the airport and Mission Valley. There are several good restaurants and parks within walking distance and the cottage is on a nice, quiet residential street with plenty of parking. The interior is classic craftsman style with lots of character. It's has everything you need with a newly remodeled bathroom, very comfortable bed, excellent TV and wi-fi and a fully equipped kitchen. Rick's a great host and very responsive. We'll definitely stay there again.

Classic period cottage in central location of San Diego

  • 5 of 5

Great spacious 1 bedroom cottage that perfect for a couple to relax inside and outside with own garden. Many shops and restaurants minutes away. Located on the north edge of Balboa Park - home of many, but especially the world famous San Diego Zoo. The highly recommended for a day out. So much more just a few more miles away, beaches, Cororndo island, La Jolla. Gas lamp district is great for evening food and nighttime. Highly recommend this cottage for any couple looking for a relaxing base to explore San Diego. We mixed San Diego with Los Angeles and Palm Springs.
