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 Midway District

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!

Great Location, Beautiful Rental, Best Owner

  • 5 of 5

We booked the one bedroom cottage for one week. It turned out to be the perfect location. Between the beaches and downtown, away from the hustle and bustle. The cottage has everything you need and is tastefully decorated. The back yard is a great plus and is great for morning breakfast and soaking up the sun. Joan was one of the most wonderful Home Away hosts we have dealt with. Anything you need she was on top of. Super dog friendly which is such a nice relief for dog owners. Thank you so much for your hospitality!

Just What We Needed

  • 5 of 5

Very cozy and inviting cottage in the heart of Old Town. Easy access to restaurants, shops and the freeway when needed. Space for parking provided (though it was a bit snug!) and owner/manager very responsive. Enjoyed our stay immensely and hope to return again in the future.

Comfortable, cute and quiet, conveniently located

  • 5 of 5

Very clean with all the amenities. Joan even had a dog bowl of water and bed for Axel. Joan was available to answer questions and offer suggestions. It is a great location in old town and close to downtown and beaches. We really enjoyed our stay.
