We had the pleasure of staying at the Beach Hut for 3 nights at the beginning of July. Norm and Linda were amazing hosts. They are charming people and Lynda has an incredible knowledge of the area and takes it at heart to make your stay as enjoyable as it can. We stayed in the garden cottage which has been nicely decorated using high end products. There is a mini fridge in the room which was filled with everything you could want for breakfast. Linda has compiled an extensive binder of useful tourist information – maps, restaurants, bicycle rentals, etc which was very helpful to us. The B&B is in a quiet neighborhood and is very well located, only steps away from Mission Bay and only a 20 minute drive from La Jolla which is a charming place to visit. We had great conversations with Linda after dinner which we really enjoyed. We have stayed at many B&B though Europe, the USA and Canada (over 50) and I can honestly say that the Beach Hut is in my top 3. If we ever go back to San Diego, I would definitely stay there again. Thanks again for a wonderful stay.

This Beach hut has two apartments, both lovely and clean. Norm and Linda, the hosting party, can't be more lovely. The showed us some good tips. The aparment is right on the mission bay and a short 15 min walk from the mission beach. Breakfast and more are supplied daily. The backyard is beautyful with own private pool, fireplace, sunbeds, chairs and BBQ. And the town itself is by far 10 times more cozy than LA. The price is more than right.

Hi,
After a long haul flight, we couldn't have found a better place to start our holiday. The rooms were excellent and had a fridge packed full of food for breakfast.
Both Linda and Norm were welcoming and helpful and made us feel at home.

Great choice!

Room Tip: All rooms are of high quality.

Everything we were looking for and more. Linda and Norm were wonderful hosts, very informative and accommodating. Perfect location. Walk across the street to the bay and less than 15 min stroll to the ocean. Accommodations were A+, much nicer than hotels in the area. Already planning our return trip. Thank you Linda and Norm!

We first found the Beach Hut in 2011 when I think it was rated #3 on TA. So happy that Linda and Norm have since taken their rightful spot as the #1 B&B in San Diego. They are so warm and friendly and truly care about you having a wonderful time on your vacation. The room is so luxurious and stocked with more breakfast food than you could possibly eat! Also new since we last visited were beach chairs and a beach umbrella for your use. The bed is so comfortable, but if you require an extra soft pillow like we do, you might find the pillows too firm. (We always find hotel pillows too firm though, so we just travel with our own). Considering how close you are to the beach/bay (steps from the bay, 10 minute walk to Pacific Beach) and how luxurious the accommodations are, this is a great value!! We saw dumpy motels along the beach that cost more and we kept saying, "I'm so glad we are staying at the Beach Hut!" We have stayed in the Tuscan Room both times and are hooked. We love that we have our own private entry; it feels like our own private house on Sail Bay! You hear a little street noise in that room, so if you are very sensitive to that, you might want to stay in the Garden Room in the back of the house by the lovely pool. We like being in the front and the cars driving by don't bother us. We rented a tandem bike for a day and had a blast. Wish we would have rented it for all 4 days we were there. Great fun. Can't say enough about the Beach Hut. We love everything about it.

It was nice staying at the Beach Hut for our anniversary. We enjoyed the quiet location, but also loved how close we were to everything. We started the weekend going to Point Loma to our favorite fish place. As it turns out, it is a favorite of Norm and Linda too. A quick ride brought us to the Beach Hut where Norm greeted us and showed us around. The room was lovely. That evening we went to see The Merchant of Venice at the Old Globe. Before hand we went to the Prado and got to enjoy watching a marine wedding! Again - not too far away. Saturday we went down and walked around Pacific Beach - and later went out sailing on the Stars and Stripes docked at Shelter Island. We then went back to the Beach Hut and walked around Mission Bay. Again - the location was perfect to get to where we wanted to go. The breakfast foods were yummy and convenient. When ever you want to eat, the food is available. It is nice that the beach towels and chairs are also available. We did not make it into the pool, but it looked inviting. We highly recommend the Beach Hut and hope to stay there again.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Tuscan Room. It was very nice.

Lit at night, the pool's dancing radiant reflections mesmerize. And there's a different view of beauty in each sitting area.I enjoy the freedom of having a snack and beverage whenever I feel like it; the room was well stocked with quality goods. Yummy muffins! I felt healed and rejunvenated following an East coast trip, then headed to the boardwalk before my flight home to Hawaii. Thanks for an excellent experience, all the way around. Mahalo and Aloha, Linda and Norm

Room Tip: I'd have to say, if there's an opening, grab it!
