Guestbook comments from the owner

This little cottage was a delightful find, close to the beach & ocean. The house was clean & cozy, complete with bicycles, bbqs, beach chairs, toys, puzzles, books, just about anything you need for a great vacation. The owner was welcoming and of great help in the renting process, answering any and all questions. Couldn't ask for a better hostess. Would definitely go back.

The Happy Little Cottage is just that! It is clean, neat and comfortable! We had my sister and her husband stay with us and it was perfect! The patio is a wonderful place to unwind after walking the bay or beach all day! It's location is just as it says, a block from the bay and 2 from the beach! That is what really makes it wonderful, you don't have people walking by you on the patio all day or night! Plenty of towels and beach stuff to spend the day at the beach, riding bikes or whatever! We will be planning another stay on our next trip to California! Thank you J-me for a wonderful place to relax!

Activity and Interests

The house is located on the bay side of South Mission Beach, a little

peninsula surrounded by the pretty blue waters of Mission Bay and the

Pacific Ocean. The bay just 100 short feet from the house; the Pacific Ocean

is about 75 yards away. This is a wonderful location; the cottage is

on a very pretty court, and is perfect for families with young

children, couples, and business travelers alike.

Belmont Park (and the old Big Dipper rollercoaster) is a 10 minute

walk from the house.

SeaWorld is a five minute drive.

The San Diego Zoo, La Jolla Cove, Balboa Park, and the downtown

Gaslamp Quarter are all about 15-20 minutes away (driving).

Both Legoland and the San Diego Wild Animal Park are about a 35 minute

drive; Disneyland is 90 minutes.

Less than 7 miles from San Diego International Airport.
