About this listing
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.
Interaction with guests
I am generally available in the evenings or via text/email during the day.
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!

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.
