Comfortable and dog-friendly cottage, walk to Pacific Beach State Park!

Salty Dog offers generous space and easy access to the sand, shops, and all the fun that comes with being in the heart of town! There's cable TV service and free WiFi for stormy days indoors, as well as a spacious kitchen, newly renovated bathrooms, and two bedrooms with a queen bed apiece to provide a restful night's sleep.

Had a great stay at the Salty Dog Cabin. Cozy place to stay close to what’s eat you need. Floors uneven and constantly feels liked you had too much to drink but all in all a nice place to stay by the beach. Garbage disposal did not work and had cooler stolen from front porch 🤬
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Bill! This beach shack does have some uneven flooring in some areas, and we apologize if this caused you any difficulties. The garbage disposal is not set-up for guest use. We hope to see you again!

Lots of space in kitchen and living area. Master bedroom is spacious. Great place to stay in and cook. Brought a bigger coffee pot. Love, love the two bathrooms. A quick walk to beach, or navy base bar/restaurant. Has a mud room if you need it. Fireplace is great. We didn’t need it. Our weekend was nice weather. Big refrigerator. That’s a bonus. Lots of extra towels, blankets and pillows. Blow dryer. Even had dog towels and dog dishes. Really nice home to stay at. Can’t Waite to go back.

3 short blocks to the beach and hrs of fun for the dogs and humans. Out of the hustle and bustle of ocean shores.
Dogs have towels waiting for them at the house (a pleasant surprise). The washer and dryer was also an added plus.
Very well stocked kitchen. Beware coffee drinkers, only a mini coffee pot 5 cups.
Floor has a slight slope leading into bedrooms/bathrooms.
Great place. I have paid same amount for much less.
We will be back.
Manager response:
We are so happy that you and the dogs enjoyed the home! We are letting our local property staff know that our guests would appreciate a larger coffee pot for their future stays! Thank you for taking the time to write a review, we look forward to hosting you again!

Great little beach house, two blocks from the water. It was clean and bright upon arrival, but be warned: the floors are old and very tilty. I enjoyed the wonkiness of the floors because it added to the charm, but I had to laugh at how completely warped they are. Bathrooms, beds, and appliances were all clean and fresh, there are basic cooking tools (no frying pan/skillet!) and little extras I wasn’t expecting, like shampoos and soaps, etc, all of which we brought our own “just in case”

It wasn’t a fancy place, but it was cozy and my family adored our three days there. This won’t be the last time we try to snag a stay at the Salty Dog!

Location was great... Close to beach and quiet at night. Very spacious: two bedrooms, two baths with large kitchen and living area with two couches.

We love walking on the beach no matter the weather and having a warm place with a woodstove is perfect!

This home was comfortable. I did read the reviews, that there were lots of VHS but no VCR. I stopped at a couple of thrift stores on the way down, trying to find one no luck. Also no DVD player. There is a nice smart TV. They ask to start laundry, but no soap. Other than those minor things, it was a cozy place to stay.

Very cozy and casual — just our style. We’re glad we brought wood for the fireplace, thanks to a prior review. This is not a fancy place. The floors are a little crooked, and it looked like the back porch was used for smoking. But it had everything we needed. The beds are comfy. It’s close to the beach. The kitchen was functional. Plenty of room to spread out. Still not sure what we were supposed to do with all these VHS tapes, since we never did find a VHS player.

great location and large space. happy to have the wood fireplace. couldn't believe all the VHS tapes available but no VCR to play them on though :(
