We enjoyed 2 nights in Cabin #19 last weekend (mid-October 2013). Our 2 bedroom cottage, located at the eastern most part of the pier was the perfect fit for 3 of us. Not too many reviewers have commented about #19, so I admit I was a bit nervous prior to arrival. Would it be noisy? I must say, it was worth the splurge to have 2 full bathrooms and bedrooms; the parking space was also a huge bonus, although we rarely moved the car until departure day. Sea World is only 10 minutes away; La Jolla only 15 minutes; the airport 15 minutes on a weekday afternoon. Like previous reviewers, I found the kitchen more than ample (we stocked up at Ralph's market on the way in) and the bathrooms were just fine. The living space was great, affording us ample space to hang out on cool mornings before heading outside for the day. I think that this cottage was recently renovated (new flooring, paint, fixtures and furniture). The blue and white beach theme was great. Even better, the incredible ocean front / beach view you'll ever have in San Diego. The pier was fairly quiet at night, even with our location. Although I could rarely hear any cars, I could hear some bar music late night while in the living room (we were in the heart of Pacific Beach after all); but with the windows open, the ocean crashing onto the beach trumped any other noises. The cottage and beach were true highlights of our San Diego vacation (just as unique and special as our LEGOLAND Hotel stay...even the kids would admit to that!) Having travelled with my 4 and 7 year old, I really enjoyed being on the beach in 3 minutes plus having all day access to our kitchen and bathrooms without having to navigate a huge lobby. Cooking and snacking were really affordable and easy with our little ones. We truly look forward to returning!
