This 3 bedroom, 1.5 bath, bright and breezy cottage embodies all the best of being at the beach wrapped up in an elegant shabby-chic design.

Complete remodel finished December 2014 has recaptured the feel of this gorgeous cottage.

Fresh flowers and chilled champagne is just the start of what will be a wonderful vacation. Every detail has been addressed to ensure a delightful stay.

Open plan gourmet kitchen, quartz counter tops, stainless steel appliances.

Two queen size bedrooms. The bunk room is custom built in cedar and has its own 40' TV for the kids. The beds are a particular treat with 600 thread count white linens, exquisite mattresses and down and feather duvets and pillows.

The living/dinig area features a stone fireplace over which is a 50' flat screen TV with cable and complimentary netflix.

The subway tiled bath room has the original refinished cast iron claw foot tub and custom antique vanity.

LAST BUT NOT LEAST…….The front porch is the perfect place for morning coffees and afternoon cocktails :) ….. is decked and beautifully fenced with custom dimmer controlled lanterns.

The cottage is located on the sunny side of the court (south facing) so the porch will always be sunny.

About Shaz Mclean

I am English and my husband South African. We moved to the US 18 years ago. We live in Solana Beach, have two children of 15 and 12 and two Jack Russell Terriers. We have two other vacation rental 379170 and 497367 which we also completely remodeled. I love the whole process of demo through to soft furnishings and am hands on in every stage. I hope it shows how much thought I put into you having the perfect place to stay while visiting Mission Beach.

That is my mission. Shaz :)

Cozy cottage in prime location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our easy walks to the bay as well as ocean beaches. Great restaurants nearby as well. Charming decor and comfy beds and linens. Our grandchildren loved the bunk room. As mentioned, the garage is small but we were able to find alternative parking. Hosts very responsive and accommodating.

Adorable little cottage!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time here. EVERYTHING is walking distance which is good because you don't want to have to pull your vehicle in and out of the parking space anymore than need be. The Bay is right outside the door, about a house away!! The Ocean is about a block away! Great location.

We spent a lot of time on the beach with grandkids, tons of beach stuff, they had a blast! There are 4 bikes, it was so nice to go on long bike rides both on the beach and the bay.

Everyone thought the beds were very comfortable! Could have had even a couple of more towels available. Should you plan on grilling, please confirm the grill has been replaced for it wasn't working when we went to use it. The house is a bit small but super cute and quiet. Should we go back to Mission area, we would stay here again.

Owner's Response: Hello Jennifer. So glad you enjoyed the cottage and Mission Beach. Sorry about the grill, being so close to the water takes a toll. I replaced the grill as soon as you left :) Thank you for your lovely review. Hope to have you back in the near future. Kindest regards Shaz

Loved staying here - especially being so close to both the bay and the beach. There were six of us - me and my husband and four kids. We took full advantage of the SUPs - daily in the bay - so much fun. Also loved having beach chairs and bikes to cruise around on. House is so cute and had everything we needed. Already dreaming about coming back! (Would've given 5 stars but our car wouldn't fit in the garage so parking elsewhere was our only complaint, but we made it work!)
