A private cottage in the heart of North Park, San Diego's most vibrant urban neighborhood. Near to Balboa Park & Zoo and many cafes, bars, and restaurants nearby. Explore San Diego from the heart of a great community!

The space
Studio cottage in the heart of North Park. Quiet street and very close to 30th & University and great breweries, shops, restaurants, bars, coffee houses, and more in North Park and other surrounding neighborhoods like South Park, Normal Heights, Hillcrest, and others.

Favorite spots in the neighborhood include: Dark Horse Coffee, Caffe Calabria, Carnitas' Snack Shack, Balboa Park, Bottlecraft, Underbelly, Modern Times, and many more. Please see the online guidebook for additional recommendations.

Cottage has a small full kitchen (stove, refrigerator, etc.) and comes ready to do your culinary bidding. Glassware, cutlery, plates and bowls, and pots and pans are ready for your use. Refrigerator has ice and water dispensers for cool, filtered drinking water.

Enjoy the dockless scooter or bicycle programs, MTS bus, or walking to explore North Park. We are in a wonderful neighborhood for biking and many great attractions (zoo, downtown, restaurants, etc.) are within a short distance.

Living area has a 42 inch TV, fast WiFi, and a desk for working. Cable is included with more than 150 channels to enjoy as well as Netflix and Amazon Video. Closet includes hangers and an iron and ironing board.

Location is well served by bus transit, but if you're looking to venture to farther areas of San Diego you may want to rent a car since many parts of the region are car-centric. (Street parking is safe and generally easy to find within a short distance.)

The cottage is professionally cleaned after each stay so you can be sure you'll have a clean, comfortable, relaxing stay.

There is a second home on the property with young children. Please be aware the children may make some noise during the daylight hours. Please take care not to disturb the tenants or neighbors but feel free to say hello if you would like.

Check-out is 11 AM and check-in is 4 PM.

Thank you!

Where you’ll be

San Diego, California, United States

North Park is a great urban neighborhood. There is a lively arts scene and many locally owned businesses. You'll find craft beer breweries, yoga studios, coffee roasters and cafes, and businesses of all kinds throughout the neighborhood. It's very walkable and safe, with good walking and running opportunities in nearby Balboa Park and the trails located there.

I live in San Diego, enjoy hiking, running, reading, cooking, and trying to surf. I love learning about my adopted city and am happy to share recommendations and insights on the local scene for outdoor activities, restaurants, bars, breweries, museums, and whatever else you might be interested in. I enjoy travelling via Airbnb to stay in neighborhoods and experience places less as a tourist. Hosting via Airbnb has been a great way to showcase our great city and give visitors an authentic feel for San Diego.
