vacation rental description

VERY reasonably priced at $2550 a week for summer and $1500/week or $4000/month for off peak season! Please see guest comments at the very bottom and check availability online.

Renovated, cheerful and bright beach cottage only a few steps to the fabulous Moonlight Beach. Relax with a drink or have a BBQ on the beautiful deck overlooking the sand and surf of Moonlight Beach. The coffee maker, toaster and a full kitchen make it easy to whip up breakfast in the ocean view dining or sun room. Grab the beach chairs, beach towels and boogie boards that are provided and walk across the street to the beach. Come back to rinse off in the hot water outdoor shower and throw your beach gear in the outdoor shed. Sit back in the living room with a cozy fire in the wood fireplace and check out the surfers, play a board game or watch your favorite TV show or DVD. Walk to the many restaurants, bars, cafes and the movie theatre nearby. Get some work done on your laptop using the free Wi-Fi service if you can tear yourself away from the beach! It's hard to imagine a more perfect vacation!

A few minute walk to the beautiful Moonlight Beach, voted best family, singles and body surfing beach in San Diego and Cottonwood Creek Park voted the best park! You will be a 10 min drive to Legoland and close to many San Diego attractions such as the world famous San Diego Zoo, Seaworld, Del mar beach and other fine San Diego beaches. This beach house is walking distance to the train station, which means you can forgo a car completely while vacationing here. In addition to San Diego's many tourist attractions in downtown or Old Town, the Coaster also stops at the Solana Beach train station where you can take a free shuttle to San Diego County Fair or Del Mar Racetrack during the racing season. 

This unique house is always maintained well. The house is around 1600 sf. One bedroom with a Queen bed, two baths, the living area with a convertible bed, kitchen, dining room, a charming sunroom and a huge deck are upstairs. Two more bedrooms, one with two bunk beds and one with a full bed, one bath and the den (daybed) are downstairs. This is not a condo like many other beach rentals. You have a full house with an ocean view yard that includes a firepit for roasting marshmallows at night! The kids also love our house. They get bunk beds, kid size table, books, dvds and games as well as a high chair, pack'n'play and baby gate for the stairs!

We have priced this property very competitively, so don't miss out and be ready to have an unforgettable time at our cottage by the sea.

Just a caution

Review submitted: January 25, 2014   Date of arrival: December 21, 2013

The location is fantastic. The house was very clean with nice deck and sunroom. I have rented VRBO homes for many years but this rental turned out to be very problematic. Each bathroom has a sign cautioning you about "old plumbing" and not flushing anything but "toilet paper." Seeing these warnings concerned us so we were very careful. Three mornings we were told by city workers to not use the water at all, we had to walk to the beach and use the public rest rooms, not bathe and eat out as we could not wash dishes. The owner compensated us for two nights. I thought that was the end of it but two days ago I received an email from the owner accusing me and my family of flushing baby wipes down the toilets thus causing the plumbing problems! She also felt that two days compensation was very unfair to her since we had caused the problem! I responded by sending her a picture of my family none of whom was a baby, none wore diapers and none used baby wipes! I would caution future renters about the plumbing issues.since the signs were posted in all bathrooms I think this may be an ongoing problem.

Owners response: Dear Diane,

The signs that are posted are merely cautionary and we have never had an issue like this in the past 5 years that we have been renting our home(as evident by the 96 positive reviews that came before this). As with any old plumbing, caution is advised when throwing anything down the toilet.

We want to apologize(again) for the issues you experienced during your stay at our home. I am sorry that you feel that I accused you of causing the plumbing issues. I am not a plumber and unfortunately I have to rely on the opinion of professionals in understanding the cause. I feel that we still handled this situation in a fair and professional manner by reimbursing you two nights of your stay plus your full deposit regardless of who caused the problem. We wish you and your family the best in your future vacations.

Best Regards,

Thank you for such a wonderful house and location to spend a few days while in town for a family wedding. The kids room was perfect for our four. The sunsets from deck were spectacular. We have so many wonderful memories of this place to take with us. We hope to return one day.
