Concierge.com's insider take:
A haven for upscale coastal nesters, this breezy Solana Beach boutique is set up to look like your dream cottage. Outside the place is decked with beachy white shingles and blue awnings. Inside the quaint 1920s bungalow is filled with all the essentials of hip seaside living—nix the anchors and life preservers in favor of Matteo linens, John Robshaw textiles, Kai candles, and pretty gifts galore. Owners Betsy Bracken and Melissa Anderson also offer interior-design and event-planning services.—Audrey Davidow
