Secluded cottage with beautiful patio in fun, eclectic neighborhood just outside downtown San Diego. Not only is the small cottage fun and comfortable, the attention to detail, wonderful breakfast and helpful tourist advice from the hostess, Paisley, is a great added benefit. Be sure to make time to look through the organized neighborhood listings compiled by the hostess to find great off-the-beaten-path cafes and shops around town. This cottage made for such a more interesting visit to San Diego than the typical convention hotel options. One word of advice, the neighborhood is definitely more accessible with a car.

My husband and I stayed at Vintage Sol for 3 nights. This was truly one of the best parts of our trip. We had such a delightful time there. The place is so charming and private. It was so convenient, and we loved the room. The bed is absolutely heavenly! We were honestly sad to leave it. And the food was just outstanding! I am an avid cook and I have to say, Paisley's food was spot-on. She even had the room stocked with snacks and drinks. Finally, Paisley herself is so kind. She was always helpful and accommodating, and has fantastic recommendations. We debated between Vintage Sol vs. a 4- or 5-star hotel, and we are SO glad we chose to stay here!

This little gem sits on a quiet residential street in the North park area. Close to everything but a unique escape. The grounds are stunning - modern combined with vintage - very well maintained and very eclectic. The casita is compact but has everything you need . Gourmet breakfasts were divine served in a private, breath taking courtyard. Hosts are lovely, accomodating and very helpful offering a full library of 'what to do' in the area and providing tips on local events. Truly a little bit of heaven!
