Enjoy our cozy cottage "casita" filled with beautiful antique furnishings and unique artistic decorations. There is a full kitchen available. French doors open onto a relaxing garden to sit and enjoy the evening breezes and canyon views. Centrally located to beaches and downtown San Diego: 6 miles to airport, Gas Lamp District, SD Zoo, Balboa Park, The Midway, Little Italy & fine dining. We provide an "Extended Cleaning Program" between guests.

The space
Guests are welcome to use our patio and our garden area for relaxing. We request NO 🔥FIRES in the fireplace outside due to California/San Diego high fire warnings secondary to the prolonged drought. Thank you for respecting this request & making our listing safe for everyone.
