About Dove Kirby
I have been a San Diego resident for close to 20 years now and absolutely LOVE my city. I would love the entire world to have the chance to experience the beautiful place I call home-- even better if they do so from our cottages! :) I live & love the SoCal lifestyle; am into fitness, animals, and travel-- although no matter what amazing places in the world I may visit, I always love to come home. There is nothing like the San Diego sunshine! My mother and I manage these cottages with joy; it is a pleasure working together with my mom on something we love so much! I believe in leaving the world better than we found it, spreading joy and loving one another.
Dove Kirby purchased this House in 2014
Why Dove Kirby chose Old Town
I fell in love with these precious cottages on sight. Walking by them, we saw that they were for sale and knew that they would make for delightful vacation rentals. Old Town is one of the most visited destinations in San Diego and there isn't much in the way of a residential area, much less vacation rentals. What better location than the heart of one of the most vibrant, sought after hot spots in San Diego? The beautiful, lush property sits hidden amongst brilliant bougainvillea and tropical landscaping, and though you are steps away from all kinds of activities as well as some of the best Mexican food in San Diego, you're also tucked just enough away to feel a true sense of quiet & privacy.
What makes this House unique
One of few residences in central Old Town. You could take your entire vacation without getting in a car! Public transit depot is just down the street and there is so much to do within steps of your door. I fell in love with these cottages on sight, knew they would make wonderful vacation rentals, being so close to so much and smack in the middle of San Diego's #1 tourist destination!

Navy Family 🇱🇷💙
Our trip was to visit my brother in law who is station in San Diego. He was home sick and we planned a trip to visit him. This house was perfect it had everything we needed from a bbq pit to a full kitchen. We hosted a bbq for 11 navy boys⚓️🇱🇷. Great location old town is walking distance, we got to walk to the restaurants, bar.
Joan was great she greeted us with open arms, she is a sweet heart. She answered all our questions about the area, and gave us a tour around the house. We loved the layout. Worth the money it’s a must for anyone staying in this area.
Thanks to everyone with there great reviews on this property. We will be telling all our family, navy, friends about this awesome rental.
Fantastic, dog friendly centrally located property
We had a great stay at Dove's fantastic guest cottage. Three adults and two BIG fur kids were extremely comfortable in the cottage. Everything you need, including coffee, extra linens, towels, paper towels, TP, and even smaller things like toiletries were provided by our thoughtful host. The property is managed by Dove's charming Mother, Joan, who was available and checked on us intermittently to make sure we had everything we needed. It was really a great experience.
The downside: very noisy, urban setting, which because it is well located to everything, including the freeways, which contributes to the noise. Old Town is a touristy, safe, cute area with lots of dining and shopping options. The property is near the Trolley and Train station, so you could easily stay without renting a car. Adequate on property parking is available if you choose to drive, which we did. If you want to be close to the beaches without the hassle and cost of staying right near the beach, this is a good option - most mornings we hopped on I5 and drove to La Jolla (which took 10 minutes) and enjoyed the beach during dog friendly hours. I do think that it might be impossible to find a more kind, dog friendly and accommodating host in all of VRBO. Joan and Dove are real jewels - and the property reflects their care for their guests - two and four legged.
Clean, Cute and Convenient
The little house was perfect for our needs! Right in the heart of Old Town and happened to be centrally located for our needs. Hostess was available via text to make recommendations on dining and provided us with a clean, well appointed space. We will be back!
We had 3 adults and 1 dog in our group. We all loved it. The location, yard, cleanness and Joan the host could not have been better. It was the perfect house for our needs.
San Diego Honeymoon
My husband and I loved staying in this Old Town cottage. It was a perfect location to explore and enjoy everything that San diego has to offer. Our 2 dogs loved walking at Fiesta Island daily! Having our own driveway was a real plus. Our caretaker, Joan was always available and was extremely helpful in every way. We can't wait to return to San diego!
