“Great little place”
Reviewed 9 May 2018 for a stay in May 2018

Clean, comfortable, quiet cottage. The location is a quiet residential area. The cottage is in a wonderfully maintained back yard full of beautiful plants. It is good for privacy. The owner, Rick is a fine gentleman who was very helpful and non intrusive. The cottage itself had all the comforts of home. Rick has seen to almost every detail. There is amply room to lounge outside and get some sun, if you wish. I'm in San Diego most every year for business and will stay again next year.

“Perfect Stay”
Reviewed 23 January 2018 for a stay in January 2018

This is a quiet place conveniently located in a safe neighborhood. 5 minutes to grocery store, and 20 minutes to the beach. Rick is the most thoughtful host ever! The cottage has everything you can think of and will need for your vacation. In addition to the tasteful beach themed decor, clean and comfortable bed, basic kitchen appliances, classic movies, board games, beautiful court yard, plants and outdoor sitting, they also have local information sheet, umbrella, grocery bags and card, sun screen lotions, snorkel supplies, beach chairs, toys and towels, and a lot more!!! Such a wonderful place to stay, make us feel at home (I wish our home has all of these!). Can't ask for more. Highly recommend!

“Quiet guest house with loads of amenities for visiting beaches”
Reviewed 30 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Rick is a superb host! I can't possibly say enough great things about him. His pre-arrival & check-in processes and his rental amenities & instruction guides anticipated our every need. He was available but gave us our privacy.

My husband, Tommy, and I came to San Diego for beach time. La Jolla Shores is a 12-minute drive away. Rick has beach towels, chairs, umbrellas and more for you to borrow, plus baby and adult sunscreen if you forgot yours.

The propane BBQ grill, hot plate and microwave he provides can help you save money by not dining out for every meal. The fresh fruit and flower are a welcoming touch on the breakfast table.

Tommy and I enjoyed watching Pixar animation shorts from the DVD collection. We had a hard time choosing from the board game collection, which included a vintage Clue game from 1956, but settled on Scrabble and Battleship.

The neighborhood is convenient to the freeway but far enough away that you can't hear vehicle noise with the windows open. It's lovely, quiet and we didn't have any issues with street parking in front of the main house.

I can't recommend Rick highly enough. I will definitely try to stay here again the next time we're in San Diego.

Rick's cottage was wonderful. Equipped with everything and then some. It is close to so many things. Rick is so friendly and helpful. Can't say enough good things. We and our granddaughter enjoyed it immensely.
