Sparkling clean6 recent guests have said that this home was sparkling clean.

This adorable, sunny little cottage tucked into a quiet neighborhood in the center of San Diego is a perfect place to escape those winter blues. Refresh and relax in a locals-only setting just blocks away from local food and local brews.

Everything was just wonderful: bright, cheery, tastefully decorated, and well stocked. The quaint fold-up ironing board and the bikes were both added bonuses which we used and enjoyed. We had a delightful stay, felt very safe, loved the many places to eat in the neighborhood, a…

We enjoyed our stay at James' cottage while we visited San Diego. We were there six nights and prepared most of our meals in the kitchen. Where we live, the sun doesn't rise until 6:30, so it was a change for the sun to rise at 5:30 there. The cottage is bright and sunny, even…

Really nice cottage, top position and great price but unfortunately not really clean. We had problems with ants too! Anyway, we had a really nice time in San Diego.

Response from James:
Hello Katrine, I'm surprised to hear you found the cottage to be unsatisfactorily clean. I only wish you had said something whilst you were here so I could have remedied the situation for you. This is a first for me, and I take these comments seriously. As for the ants, San Diego is notorious for them especially this time of year, and In response to your comments, I have ordered pest control to come by this week to asses and treat. Again, I'm sorry if this affected your trip in any way, and I appreciate your feedback. Thank you.
