Private and relaxful

The cottage had everything we needed to just relax and enjoy our time together. The location was the best, located between the bay and the ocean, everything just steps away no car needed. The cottage was fully furnished to enjoy just hanging out there or sunbathing on the beach. Just a real pleasure and suited our needs perfectly.

The Perfect little cottage

This cottage was perfect. 1 block from the bay and 1 block from the beach. We walked the beach daily, and all the stores, food places, bars, were within walking. This cottage had everything, from blankets, sheets, washer & dryer, towels, coolers, chairs for the beach, bikes, toys for kids and games, everything you could think of. Directions to grocery stores with special saving at the store. We ate our breakfast at the cottage, and sometime snacks, everything was great. This was a great place, I am sure glad we found this place, and I would most definitely stay there again. Thank You for the wonderful little cottage.

Cute & cozy

We loved the happy little cottage! It was clean, convenient and cozy. It was fun to walk a few steps to the bay every evening and watch the fireworks across the bay at Sea World. Especially loved the fully furnished kitchen. The enclosed front and back yards with tables were perfect--they kept my 2 year old grandson safely confined while we enjoyed the cool sea breezes. We made good use of the sand toys and beach chairs in the garage. I timed our walk from the front door of the cottage to the beach--less than 3 minutes! South Mission Beach is much quieter, friendlier and laid back than North Mission Beach!

Perfect - in ways big and small

Perfect- in ways big (location, washer/dryer, space, beds, hosts!) and small (extra towels, toys for kids and adults, sharp kitchen knives, etc!). Great, comfortable place and very nice hosts -- Thanks!

Cozy comforts

The happy little cottage is just that...full of cozy comfort and everything needed to relax and feel at home. Great location between bay and ocean, near stores, quiet area, attentive and caring owners, amenities galore. Lovely home.

Fabulous Vacation Home

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.

Like home away from home!

My brother and I really enjoyed your cottage! The location is close to everything beach, parks and the nightlife it was the excellent vacation spot. The cottage was well equipped for a comfortable stay in or time at the beach and park. Thank you J-me and Clark, we had a great time at your place!

Integrity and Kindness

If you like supporting businesses run by kind people who care about their clients, this is your place! When I expressed I was nervous about booking online and sending complete payment to a stranger, J-Me (the owner) sent all sorts of legal information to assuage my concerns with no defensiveness. I appreciated that. Once here, we loved walking 2 blocks to the right (with a coffee shop stop in between) to the ocean to watch the surfing and activity. Loved walking 15 steps to the left to soak in the sun peacefulness of the bay. This area of town is FUNKY. Lots of family owned businesses and down-to-earth people. The gas fireplace and Snuggie came in handy during the cool nights. (-;

Great Beach Cottage!

We loved the Happy Little Cottage! The location is perfect and it was the perfect vacation spot in the Mission Beach area-away from the noise on the beach side of Mission Blvd. The beach bikes, beach chairs and front patio were well used by our family. The beds were particularly comfortable and the cottage had a full kitchen with everything we needed. Thanks again J-me and Clark, we had a wonderful time at your beach cottage!

What a happy vacation home!,

Our family of 4 really enjoyed our stay in this cozy little cottage. The on-site owners were very helpful and readily available. There were lots of little extras like coupons for site-seeing adventures, movies to rent, and sand toys for our children. Most importantly, it's close to the beach, even closer to the bay.

Great Place

We so much enjoyed our stay as it was relaxing, sunny and we felt home 1,000 miles away from home. What more do you expect?

Easy access to La Jolla and dowtown and all points of interest. Front courtyard and back grilling area with table and pvt space. Off street parking and all around great palce. Owners great and very accomodating!

What a great place!

We loved the Happy Little Cottage! It is close to Mission Bay, Mission Beach and Belmont Park. The boogie boards and beach cruisers are great! We only needed to bring our clothes. J-me and Clark are very nice and helpful. My 8 year old son wanted to fish at the bay and Clark helped him catch live ghost shrimp for bait! This was truly a wonderfully relaxing vacation for our family. We will definitely be back.

Perfect little house close to beach

This house was a perfect place for our family while on vacation. We used the back porch every morning and evening! You can walk West and be right at the ocean or walk East and you are right on the bay. My family really enjoyed the bikes for riding aroud, and the kids loved the boogie boards! The boardwalk has plenty of fun things to keep the kids entertained, and shopping for the women! My husband spent his time fishing at the bay catchintg plenty of fish!

We would stay again

The cottage was everything and more that it was advertised to be. The location was perfect and so was the cottage. All of the extras (bikes, beach accessories, etc.) were nice touches and came in usefull. The front and back patios were gorgeous. The grill in on the back patio came in handy. We would have loved to spend a month there and felt right at home. We hope to make a trip again in the future and this is definitely the place that would be our number one choice if available.

Great little place - can't be beat!!

My son and I enjoyed 5 nights at this cute little cottage during our recent golf trip to the San Diego area. The owners couldn't have been nicer if they tried. The cottage is clean and very cozy, and can easily accomodate a family of four. It's proximity to the bay and ocean is wonderful, and the area is nice and quiet. The excitement of Belmont Park is a short walk or bike ride away. 15 easy minutes by car to downtown San Diego. Sea World across the bay. We liked the place enough to ask if there were available nights so that we could extend our stay - no luck. If we are ever in southern California again, we will certainly be contacting these folks about another stay.

Comfy and Cozy

We loved coming home to the Happy Little Cottage after a long day of seeing the sights. It had everything we could possibly have wanted; grill, washer/dryer, bikes, a fully stocked kitchen, etc., as well as small things like a needle and thread to re-sew a button. And the beds were extremely comfortable. j-me and Clark were very friendly and accessible hosts. We will really miss this place!

Happy little hideaway!

Just a stone's throw from the beach, the Happy Little Cottage is probably one of the best deals in So-Cal! We had a wonderful time. The splendid accommodations felt like a home away from home, and the location couldn't have been better. Great Mexican food and a cute little market just down the street. The house was spotless, and the kitchen allowed us the flexibility to enjoy our own cooking. Beautiful hardwood floors and tastefully decorated, we could have stayed comfortably for weeks on end! The neighborhood is safe and friendly, with a festive, yet relaxing atmosphere. We will definitely be staying at the Happy Little Cottage again. Thanks!
