“Absolutely perfect vacation spot!”
Reviewed March 29, 2018 for a stay in March 2018

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Garden Cottage! So peaceful and clean and very convenient to accommodate our needs. Beautifully decorated, and equipped with everything we needed. The owner was very attentive and helpful with suggestions if we needed them. I really appreciated the owner making sure before we booked that we were a calm, non-partying sort who would not be disturbing neighbors! That was a huge factor in booking the Garden Cottage, as we knew that we would not be disturbed either. We were very impressed with the garden surrounding the cottage as well! The beautiful Californian landscaping helped make our stay so much more enjoyable!
The cottage was within walking distance to quaint eating establishments and coffee shops in the Ocean Beach area. This was our first time to visit San Diego and we hope to come back again! Be sure to walk to the end of the street and take in the gorgeous sunset over the ocean! And, if you are there in the Spring.... be sure and visit the Flower Fields at Carlsbad Ranch! Thank you Rodney, for helping make our California vacation such a memorable one!

We had a wonderful time in this home! Everything was perfect for our family of 4 and Rodney was amazing! He was available anytime we had a question and even brought goodies from a local restaurant for us! We've already decided to make this an annual trip and will definitely stay here again!

“Wonderful beach cottage”
Reviewed November 19, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

First, the cottage was absolutely spotless and incredibly well stocked. It had everything needed for the beach (which is not just down the street, however, as the road drops off into a cliff; you need to go to Ocean Beach by car). Rodney was the best owner ever for helping us with problems--responses truly are in less than an hour. (And we have rented half a dozen homes, from London to Bermuda.) We had a problem with turning on the fire pit. It needed more propane--but an extra tank was available. Just a hint--go to Trader Joe's and buy marshmallows, chocolate and graham crackers and make s'mores. My family (21-year-old daughter and 28-year-old son, and husband) had a blast doing this. One thing, which I meant to point out to Rodney, although I am sure he is aware. Tiny ants will invade the kitchen countertops if ANY food is left out. We bought a small well-packaged cake at Trader Joe's but had to throw it out the next morning. Ants also got into some crackers we had re-sealed. An easy solution was to wrap everything well and put it in the refrigerator, which worked well when we wanted to take snacks with us to the beach. I know some people may have complained about airport noise (I live in front of a bus stop; so noise is truly relative). Although a few early-morning flights were audible, it really was not an issue. Parking was also very easy to find, if not in front of, then across from, the cottage. Overall, this is a wonderful place to stay--close to the many amenities of Ocean Beach, but far enough from the hustle and bustle of the main drag.

“Delightful”
Reviewed November 17, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We so enjoyed our stay at the garden cottage! Comfortable, quiet neighborhood and wonderful accommodations. Well appointed home and garden(s). Perfect location. Walk to Newport Ave. Coffee and breakfast at Newbreak Cafe just off the beach. Dinner at The Joint and The Warehouse were amazing. Our host, Rodney, was/is very personable and available if we had any questions at all. We felt well cared for and so enjoyed our stay. We will be back. Until next time...
