“Amazing experience!”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

We stayed in the garden room at Beach Hut for two nights in early April. I am so glad we found such a unique and beautiful place to go back to when we visit San Diego. The room was perfectly clean and well stocked. Norm and Linda are very helpful and wonderful hosts. The garden area is so great with a saline pool and a comfortable fire-pit area. I would recommend Beach Hut B&B to anyone looking for a nice relaxing stay close to the beach but away from the hustle and bustle.

We stayed in the garden room, well equipped with modern and smart amenities. Everything is well thought out from high end toothbrush holder to minibar fully stacked with complementary healhy breadfast and snack.

Garden is lovely and smells good with blooming Jasmine flower. Top b&b I ever stayed at. The host saves no money in providing comfort to the guests.

My husband and I stayed at the Beach Hut B&B for a few nights in February 2014. We stayed in the Tuscan room, which was very modern, clean and cozy. I wish my bedroom at home was as nice! There was a nice outdoors area in the back with a pool and fire pit. The location was great. You could easily walk to the beach and several restaurants, and local tourist attractions such as the zoo were only a short drive away. If we are ever in the area again we will be sure to stay here again!

My husband and I spent two nights at Beach Hut. Norm and Linda are wonderful hosts, and their attention to detail is unbelievable. The Tuscan room is beautifully appointed, with exquisite linens on the bed and heavenly towels in the bath. Our "kitchen" was stocked with everything you could possibly want for breakfast. Our visit was packed with activities, so we did not have time to enjoy the courtyard and pool, but the area is beautiful and relaxing. We have stayed in many B&Bs from coast to coast, and Beach Hut rates in the top five! We will definitely recommend this property to friends traveling in the San Diego area.

We stayed at the Beach Hut B&B for 3 nights in mid-March, before a conference in downtown San Diego. The Garden room was well equipped (including a martini shaker), and very comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked, both food-wise & equipment-wise. The courtyard was a place we hated to leave. It was cool in the mornings & evenings, so we sat by the outdoor fireplace, and moved into the sun when it was warmer. Probably one of the more relaxing bed & breakfasts we have been to. Very private and quiet. It is also within walking distance to restaurants and convenience stores, Sail Bay, and the Pacific. Wish we could have stayed longer!

Room Tip: We liked the Garden Room because it was separate from the main house.

This B&B is really more sophisticated than the name implies. Everything is carefully thought out, from the garden to the room design to the self-serve breakfast/all day snacking. We had read glowing online reviews and expected a pleasant experience. Obviously we were not disappointed.

We will return the next time we are in the San Diego area.

Room Tip: There are just two rooms and they are quite similar.

February 2014- After returning from a week in Cabo for our honeymoon, we stayed 2 nights at the Beach Hut, before returning home to Las Vegas. The owner Nathan was very nice and greeted us after dark, then escorted us to our room. I loved how well the cozy space of this room was utilized. There was a small kitchenette, dining table, queen- sized bed, and a flat screen TV on a swivel mount. VERY CLEAN room! The shower in the bathroom included dispensers for shampoo, conditioner, and body wash- all high quality. Finding that the water in the shower was treated by a softening system was also a pleasant surprise. They even stocked the little fridge with gluten and dairy-free foods that I could eat...from Trader Joes! How nice!! We had breakfast by the fire pit in the yard both mornings, and enjoyed the sounds of wind chimes and a fountain, in a very cute little garden setting. My new husband and I also appreciated the use of beach chairs and an umbrella, while we spent the day on Mission beach. The attention to detail paid by the owners of the Beach Hut is impeccable, to say the least. They really think of everything you could possibly want or need... Right down to the container of mini condiments in the kitchen cupboards, and a binder full of suggested things to do and see in the San Diego area. Both nights we were there, we ate dinner in the Gas Lamp district (approx. 20 minutes from the B & B.) I highly suggest the Gas Lamp Strip Club Steakhouse for a cool dining experience. Don't let the name deter you, it is JUST a steakhouse, where you grill your own meat. VERY neat concept, and yummy!! We also took Nathan's advice on where to get some great lunches...he suggested Rocky's Crown Pub in Pacific Beach area. They did not disappoint. GREAT burger!!! We also ate at the Fish Market in the Port of San Diego, right next to a retired Naval ship, turned restaurant. Those were the best oysters I have ever had! So fresh!! If you have the time, definitely take a drive out to Coronado island to watch the sunset...gorgeous!! All-in-all we had two fantastic and very restful days at the Beach Hut. Loved this place and I would definitely recommend it for couples/honeymoon/ etc....

Room Tip: There are only 2 rooms available at the Beach Hut, we stayed in the Garden Suite....amazing!
