Why We Love It

Great location in Mission Beach. From the front door, you head a few steps one direction to arrive at Mission Bay. Few steps the other way and you’ll be at Pacific Beach.

Recently renovated, this dreamy cottage is gorgeously decorated and luxurious. This is our recommendation for couples or small family to enjoy all of San Diego’s glorious beach activities. Near Belmont Park.
