About Dove Braunstein
I have been a San Diego resident for fifteen years now and absolutely LOVE my city. I want the world to get to experience the beautiful place I call home! I love the SoCal lifestyle; am into fitness, animals, and travel-- although no matter what amazing places in the world I may visit, I love to come home. There is nothing like the San Diego sunshine! I believe in leaving the world better than we found it, spreading joy and loving one another.
Dove Braunstein purchased this Cottage in 2013
Why Dove Braunstein chose Old Town
I fell in love with these cottages on sight. Walking by them, we saw that they were for sale and knew that they would make a delightful vacation rental. Old Town is such a hot spot 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, highly visited destinations in San Diego!? The beautiful, lush property sits hidden amongst brilliant bougainvillea and tropical landscaping, and steps away from some of the best Mexican food in San Diego!
What makes this Cottage unique
Parking in Old Town? Unheard of! A designated spot in the driveway is yours! A private patio area in back allows you to enjoy the balmy weather, dine alfresco, or just relax in the San Diego sun. Wonderfully upgraded throughout, this cottage has recently had substantial renovations, including a new kitchen, remodeled bathroom, water filtration system, eliminating the need to constantly be buying water! (The icemaker in the freezer is also plumbed to the water filter!) All new furniture, paint, and appliances!

Car-Free Stay in San Diego
The location is terrific for a car-free stay, near the Old Town light rail/Amtrak/Coaster train station. The manager was super accommodating and purchased several requested cooking utensils in advance of my stay. I am allergic to pets but the cottage has an air purifier and I had no ill effects from previous visitors' pets. I would definitely stay here again!
Stay Number 4
Love this cottage! Clean and quiet. So close to everything. Took in two Padres games. Walked a very short way to take the trolley down and back. So easy to do.
Got to meet Joan for the first time. Such a delight! I will be back.
Our family was so impressed by this cottage! It's located in a great location and met every one of our needs! Lots of restaurants within walking distance and SeaWorld was about a 15 minute drive. We will definitely be back!
Great location and great property!
We really enjoyed our stay here in Old Town and this unit is within walking distance to all the fun shops and restaurants. Easy access to I 5 makes getting around SD so easy. Joan met us at the rental and was very kind, personable and accommodating! Overall experience was great and we would definitely stay again! Unit is stocked with everything needed for a great stay! Thanks!
Just what we needed!
Dove’s property manager, her mother Joan, was incredibly accommodating, responsive and kind. The cottage was exactly as described with all of the amenities we needed in the perfect location in Old Town San Diego (with parking, no less)! The space was clean and ready for our arrival with clear directions on the check in and check out process. We would absolutely recommend this cute and quaint cottage in Old Town and would be more than happy to return! Thank you for a lovely stay, Dove and Joan!
Old Town Secret Treasure
We had the most enjoyable stay at the cottage with our two doggies. The cottage is very pet friendly! The cottage has almost everything you might need if you forgot something at home. Walking distance to public transportation, & lots of cute restaurants nearby. We decided to cook some meals and found everything we needed in tbe kitchen. Thank you for such a nice experience at your place in the beautiful setting of Old Town San Diego!
