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

It was clean and comfortable. A block off the beach!

We had a very comfortable stay in Salty Dog. We had three people and a few small dogs. The bathrooms were both very nice and clean. Plenty of towels, shampoo, conditioner, toilet paper, etc. The living room was super comfy for 3 people. There are 4 lounge chairs built in to the couches, plus the Swedish style chair with ottoman. The TV was very nice, just remember to bring your own Blu-Ray player as there is not a player of any type in the home. The beds were comfy and there were extra blankets around if needed. Yes, the roof leaks back by the washing machine and dryer, but it’s out of the way. Yes, the floors are uneven throughout the house, which takes a bit to get used to. But, we kind of made a game out of it. There was no toaster so we bought one for it. You’re welcome. But, all in all, it was very convenient to walk down to the beach everyday and walk the pups. You can see the ocean from the corner of the living room. The home was cozy, relaxing, and a perfectly fine place to stay for a week or two. We played games, made great food, watched movies, and took nice long walks to the beach. This place was affordable, comfortable, and was quirky and fun. I have read some not great reviews, but let’s face it - you can either complain or find fun in any situation right? We chose to find fun in it!

Excellent for our needs. Plenty of towels. Enjoyed our stay. Thanks!

The home was clean, and well stocked. Bed was comfortable, nice linens. You can see the ocean from the front porch.

We had some issues. First the roof was leaking in the laundry room, leaking enough to have to empty pots filled with water. Call vacasa, woman I spoke to was great felt it was an urgent situation and said maintenance was going to contact me. Maintenance guy texted asking for pictures of leak to send to roof company. Then nothing... spent 4 more nights with a leaking roof. Nobody ever got back to us, offered us anything, nothing.
Previous renters beer bottles and cardboard was left in laundry area. Not nice.
Blinds in living room don't work and are missing pieces. Bummer. No privacy.
Back door to outdoor patio is non operational, roof facia is rotting and blocking door.
Fix the blinds, roof leak, backdoor, and take out the garbage and would gladly stay here again. We stayed 7 nights, this is our 1 vacation a year so it was a bit diapponting.

The cottage was spacious and the furniture in the living room was comfortable.
Gary R C. Sep 2021
The ocean is a short walk away, and there is a long distance view. The house has lots of room and is very comfortable.
Jacquie B. Jul 2021
Walking distance to the beach.
Bill K. May 2021
Great location in center of town, and walking distance to the beach. Surprised the two bedroom layout came with two bathrooms, large living room and kitchen too. Also has new full size washer and dryer. We found the beds comfortable. Its still spring and drizzled rain all weekend but this would be a nice summer time get-away place!
Sabrina R. May 2021
Home was very cozy. Well maintained and yes, the floors are interesting, but nothing to worry about. Thanks for the note in the binder about the light switch for the kitchen! My daughter loved the recliner so much, she ordered one delivered to her house to be delivered when she got back!
Pat G. Mar 2021
I would of given it 5 stars but the front blinds didn't close so we didn't have the privacy at night, otherwise had everything we needed and very close to the beach
Manager response:
Hi, Pat! We have ordered new blinds for this home that should be here soon. Thank you!
Virginia N. Dec 2020
A sweet little house close enough to hear the roar of the ocean!
Keli K. Nov 2020
Cute little place. Clean, cozy. I enjoyed my stay. Change of scenery was so needed!
Bruce M. Nov 2020
Well furnished
Plenty of kitchen supplies, towels
Quirky floors were fun and not a problem
Could not find any laundry detergent to start a load when we left, as requested.
Worked well for our group of 4.
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us, Bruce! We are glad this home suited your group well. We apologize for the lack of starter kit supplies, and we'll be sure to restock the home with more laundry soap. We hope you'll return soon!
Jessica S. Sep 2020
Honestly this home is just what expected, it's a little old and funky, could use some updating and we knew the floors were sloped. The back area with the picnic table should be tidied up its sad. What I thought they could do is level one of the beds, have better kitchen supplies like baking sheets and screens on the windows, It gets stuffy in the cabin and you can't have windows open with no screens, because safety and spiders could come in! All in all though location is great and love the beach access!
Bill G. Mar 2020
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!
Renee L. Dec 2019
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.
Rochelle A B. Sep 2019
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!
Barbara M P. Sep 2019
Very enjoyable stay. Comfortable accomadions. Close to walk to ocean and coffee shop. Would visit again
Carol D P. Sep 2019
Close to beach and other amenities (is coffee shop, market. Clean, roomy.
Meghan B. Aug 2019
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!
Donna D. Jul 2019
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.
Laura H. Jul 2019
Close to the beach! Loved it!

Close to the beach.
Cindy S. Feb 2019
We love walking on the beach no matter the weather and having a warm place with a woodstove is perfect!
Angie B. Feb 2019
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.
Sue H. Jan 2019
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.
Kyle W. Nov 2018
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 :(
