Absolutely Loved It!

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely cozy cottage in a safe neighborhood where people were walking their dogs and were friendly. The cottage was VERY clean and well kept and something you really should experience. It was well stocked with everything you will need in the kitchen, plenty of towels and bedding. The bed was VERY comfy and plenty of room for all the clothing and luggage. Beautiful foliage in the yard everywhere with the wonderful smell of Honeysuckle and nice fountain in the courtyard. Only 10 - 15 mins from everything in San Diego and five minutes to the Zoo, 10 mins to Sea World. We recommend this as a must stay in San Diego. We'll be back!

Cozy cottage with everything we needed in a quiet location, close to everywhere we wanted to go.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cottage. The furniture was very comfortable, lots of dresser storage for our clothes and the kitchen had everything we needed. It was mostly cool and rainy during our stay so we didn’t have a chance to sit outside in the beautiful, private garden. There are many restaurants and pubs within easy walking distance and a very pretty neighbourhood to walk through. We took the trolley tour - we purchased tickets online, drove to nearby Balboa Park where you can park for free and hopped on the trolley there. There’s a lot to see and you could easily spend a whole day exploring. San Diego is a beautiful city with lots of outdoor activities.

The rental process and access to the cottage was easy and efficient. Rick was a pleasure to deal with and quick to respond to our questions. We’ll definitely return to San Diego in the future.

Perfect for a San Diego vacation

  • 5 of 5

Excellent property and even better than described. Well-equipped with everything we needed. Not necessary to dash out to stock up on arrival as in some rentals. Spacious with lots of storage and a beautiful, well kept garden.

The location is convenient and safe to walk around with good bus service to the city a short walk away. Street parking always easily available right outside. Also close to Balboa Park.

We highly recommend this property and would definitely stay again if we return to San Diego.

Thanks, Rick.

We had everything we needed. And it was very clean and comfortable. Rick was so easy to work with. He responded very quickly to my questions and texts. The house is located near Balboa Park and all its many things to see and do. And the neighborhood is lovely. We walked just about everywhere we wanted to go. I highly recommend this place as a wonderful place to stay.
