Beautiful little beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

Once again we had a fabulous stay at Stella’s adorable beach cottage. Love the location AND love the house. Lisa was fantastic to work with and had the place looking picture perfect. We had a fantastic time and love San Diego!

Hated to Leave and Can't Wait to Return!!

  • 5 of 5

Part of me doesn't want to write a review, because we loved this place SO much and I worry next time we want to book it it will be impossible! :)

Really, this lovely bungalow by the beach is fabulous. I mean, seriously, why would you ever stay in a hotel again (we won't) when you can get this adorable place that includes parking, beach toys/wagon/towels/chairs/umbrella, washer/dryer, full kitchen to save on meals out, and a fabulous outdoor space that includes an electric fire pit and cozy seating while you watch the sun set and listen to the waves.

The location is also perfect - about a half block off the ocean, so close enough to run back for bathroom breaks from the beach and far enough to sleep through the Cinco De Mayo celebrations. You are also close to both Olive restaurants, which are wonderful for breakfast and coffees.

This cottage was also perfect for us with our three year old - we could lock all the doors and just let her run around, inside and out, because the enclosed outdoor space made us feel relaxed knowing she was in a secure area and couldn't easily escape.

Also, Lisa and Steve were fabulous hosts and responded immediately when we had any questions. They are also very thoughtful and made our stay special (we were celebrating our 10 year anniversary) with sweet little gifts for us and our toddler daughter upon arrival and bringing us chocolate covered strawberries too!

Seriously, this place is wonderful and though I am worried about it booking up, I have already told several friends about it and told them it is a perfect place for your San Diego adventures.

Thank you Steve and Lisa!

Marvelous vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had one of the most beautiful experience at the Beach House. The place is so cozy, so neat and it is only 23 steps away from the ocean! It is very comfortable, with so many nice details inside. We drove to the place and the house has two parking spaces!. Everything is within walking distance, We really enjoy our stay!

Great beach house! 3 houses from the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Great beach house for a family! Three houses from the beach, so we could easily go back and forth to the beach. We could walk or ride bikes (provided at the house) to so many places to eat that we didn't have to use the car. Loved sitting by the fire pit in the evening. The decor is so nice and fresh, the inside felt very clean and tidy. The house had beach chairs, lots of beach toys and towels too! The owner was very quick to reply when I texted her. Would not hestitate to stay again!

Sweet & Cozy Cottage Steps from the Sand

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a relaxing getaway with the kids. This place was adorable and had everything we needed. The outside deck was my favorite I loved getting cozy by the fire pit at night & listening to the waves! You can really tell they take pride in making their guests feel welcome! We will definitely be back again. Thank you for everything!
