Your private cottage is detached from our home so you can come and go without worrying about disturbing anyone.
Our cozy, private cottage is nestled in Historic Mission Hills at the center of San Diego’s greatest attractions. The highly desirable neighborhood is quiet and safe, but just minutes from popular destinations.
On the property of a historically-designated Craftsman home, The Mission Hills Casita, first built in 1913 as the carriage house, is fully renovated with a double bed, kitchenette (refrigerator, microwave, sink, hotplate, and crockpot), newly renovated bathroom and ample closet space. Very private, the detached Cottage studio is surrounded by brick patio, an outdoor kitchen with gas grill, lounging deck and landscaped grounds for your use and enjoyment.
Two full-service grocery stores are within easy walking distance and each Sunday morning the Hillcrest farmer’s market offers fresh produce, hot and cold prepared foods, and inexpensive fresh flowers galore.
We are very close to both Scripps Mercy Hospital, UCSD Medical Center and the Naval Medical Center San Diego for physician residents needing a place during a rotation, traveling nurses, and family members needing to be close to a hospitalized loved one.
The major freeways of San Diego intersect within 2 miles of our home. A city bus lines runs literally to our curb and the San Diego Trolley station in Old Town is a short walk away. Short taxis and Uber rides to downtown are approximately $15.
The proximity to the ocean keeps both daytime and nighttime temperatures comfortable. Check out the current weather at the Cottage
In addition to the cottage, you are encouraged to use our outdoor deck including dining table and grill. It is a great place to enjoy a morning coffee or a glass of wine at the end of the day.
I am generally available in the evenings or via text/email during the day.
Our cozy, private cottage is nestled in Historic Mission Hills at the center of San Diego’s greatest attractions. The highly desirable neighborhood is quiet and safe, but just minutes from popular destinations including Hillcrest, the Convention Center, the Gaslamp Quarter, Old Town, Balboa Park, the San Diego Zoo, SeaWorld, Fashion Valley Shopping Mall, Mission Bay, Petco Park & the Lindbergh Field Airport.
You can walk to The Presidio and countless shops, restaurants & bars in one of San Diego’s oldest, safest, and most scenic neighborhoods. In the heart of San Diego, Mission Hills is adjacent to trendy Hillcrest and historic Old Town. Stunning turn-of-the-century homes with mature magnolia and pepper trees line the scenic Sunset Blvd and Fort Stockton Avenues. Nearby markets offer a fabulous selection of gourmet foods, wine, coffee and full deli counters.
A city bus lines runs literally to our curb, though some guests have found the buses to be a little slow and inefficient. The San Diego Trolley station in Old Town is a short walk away, and you can also buy tourist bus passed there which take you all around the city. Short taxis and Uber rides to downtown are approximately $15.
We live in a quiet residential neighborhood and ask that guests respect the peacefulness of our property and maintain reasonable noise levels for our neighbors. There is plenty of street parking, but we request you to park in front of our house when possible.
We keep a smoke free home, but we provide guests with a designated smoking area in the garden, should they need it.
No more than 2 people allowed to stay overnight (not including infants and toddlers).
Please secure the front gate when entering or existing the property to ensure that our pup, Nerea, stays put.
We want you to have a great time here and I hope you will return on each visit to San Diego. Thanks!
Our stay in San Diego was enjoyable. The cottage was just as pictured, cozy and private. Small kitchenette stocked with plenty of necessities. Downtown San Diego is less than 15 minutes away. The hosts were very nice, and their dog is very friendly. Overall, great stay. We would recommend this place and would love to return.
Nice neighborhood; property was as advertised and clean and neat. Directions (from MapQuest) were spot on. Great location; within walking distance (about a mile, if so inclined) of many services, including stores, coffee shop across street, Old Town San Diego, markets and restaurants. Easy access to freeways, quiet and peaceful except for summer fireworks (about 15 minutes around 9 p.m.).
Great location in a beautiful cottage behind an even more beautiful house! Great neighborhood and easy space to navigate. The cottage was tidy and comfortable and a wonderful retreat for our stay in SD. We never figured out wifi or TV and the cell phone signal was low in the cottage but there's lots to do in SD so being unplugged was just fine!
Great little cottage, exactly as described. Perfect for 2. Location was great, right on a bus route, about a 20 min walk to the trolley stop and close to the airport. Easy parking right on the street - we never had to hunt for a parking spot. We also enjoyed the small kitchenette with a coffee maker and microwave.
The only important negative to note that there is no AC, but there is a ceiling fan which keeps the cottage cool during the day, but can only run while the lights are on, so we could not use it while sleeping. Without a breeze, it could get a bit stuffy at night.
Had a great time staying white Ed & Jamie. Brilliant location close to shops and what a fantastic city!
My boyfriend and I just finished a one month stay at the cottage and LOVED it.
It's a perfect place for one person or a couple and has everything you need. Wifi and laundry, woohoo!! Ed and his family are great hosts. They made us feel welcome but also gave us plenty of privacy. Their yard (which you can see in the pictures) is pretty and peaceful, and there's a sweet little table behind the cottage where you can sit and enjoy San Diego's beautiful weather! My boyfriend, who was working remotely, got to use it as his office while we were there. Not bad! And, big plus for dog lovers, they have a beautiful border collie pup named Nerea :)
The location is pretty fantastic. San Diego is a beautiful city and Mission Hills is a great neighborhood. It's full of beautiful houses and beautiful gardens, which make a lovely backdrop for your morning run. You're a quick drive from all of San Diego's great neighborhoods, dining, shopping, etc., not to mention the beaches, and Balboa Park with its amazing zoo and museums! Right across the street is a great little coffee shop (Espresso Mio), and a 15-20 minute walk will get you to several other shops and restaurants in the Mission Hills shopping district. In that area we found an wonderful Pilates studio (Pilates RX), a cool, laid-back bar (Toma Sol), a delicious Japanese restaurant (Izakaya Masa), and a really neat little outdoor theater that shows old films (Cinema Under the Stars)!
Our stay was really wonderful. I could go on and on, but suffice to say we had a brilliant time here and I'd happily recommend this place to anyone!
Thanks so much for the great review and feedback, and we really enjoyed having you as guests. We have a friend staying in the cottage in February who is willing to let us replace the shower while she is staying there, which should take care of the water problem you pointed out.
Also, it seems that I missed the window to leave you a review, unfortunately. Not sure if there is a way to do that, but if you need a reference for a future airbnb don't hesitate to ask.
It seems I missed the

Hi! I am a high school student who is eager to share our home and our great city with you. I have lived all my life in San Diego and dedicate much of my free time enjoying all it has to offer. I enjoy photography and hanging out with my friends. I have been hosting Airbnb guests since 2011 and have met so many cool people from all around the world - while saving up money for college. I have even used Airbnb to visit Mexico, France and Spain.
Fortunately, I manage the casita with the help of my parents, Ed and Jamie. When he isn't running an ultra-marathon or doing Crossfit, Papa works for a genomics company. Mama owns a marketing firm but would rather be cooking or travelling - preferably both. Nerea, our border collie pup, takes her job as greeter very seriously. We all love San Diego but spend lots of time south of border too, when time allows.
