Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

Hear the crashing surf and watch the sun set over the Pacific from the upscale accommodations. Every attention to detail will make your stay memorable.

The all organic Queen bed in the second bedroom is hopefully the most comfortable bed you have ever experienced. A French door opens to your ocean view and magnificent ocean breezes.

Walk to Ocean Beach, a coastal town time has forgotten. It’s one of the few places left in San Diego where the shops are locally owned and managed instead of being owned by big chains.

Fine dining, great breakfast and lunch spots and unique shopping are a short walk away. Small, but enchanting, this 2 bedroom retreat is immaculate with the finest of organic linens and designer amenities.

About Lisa Hoyer

Tom and Lisa Hoyer the proud owners of the Ocean Front Beach Retreat

Lisa Hoyer purchased this condo in 2006

Why Lisa Hoyer chose San Diego County

Our Ocean Front Beach Retreat needs to be seen to be believed. When we first saw it we knew we had to have it in our family. We want to share this amazing setting with others as it is truly one in a million. We searched for property for over a year and when we discovered this beauty we purchased it on the first day.

What makes this condo unique

The setting is specatular. The condo sits on a bluff above the tidepools and ocean below. The sunsets are amazing as well as the sounds of the waves and wild life below. There is an awesome view of the Ocean Beach Pier and you can sit in the patio and watch the surfers in the distance. On may occasions the local dolphins play in front of the condo. The little town of Ocean Beach is only a 2 block stroll away. There you will find many unique shops and restaurants that line the main street.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lisa and Tom,

Thank you so much for the great beach house! It was a perfect getaway. It was so close to many things...fun things. We had a great time. I loved the beach. You guys have made a very warm and nice home. The view of the beach was beautiful. If we ever come back to San Diego we will stay at the Beach Retreat again!!

Lisa and Tom have a beautiful home to rent. The house was perfect for our family. The location was central for our activities in and around San Diego.

A great two week vacation!

  • 4 of 5

Great location near the pier and stairs to the beaches and tide pools. 4th of July fireworks show on the pier was fantastic!! Great view of ocean and show from the front patio. Our family of three adults and two children had a great time.

Just as described!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful condo in a quiet neighborhood directly above the cliffs with easy access to the tide pools below. We were able to walk to Ocean Beach in five minutes and return to the condo for lunch with no fuss! Everything we needed was included, could have left our boogie board and umbrella at home! The condo has a ton of cute personal touches such as specialty lotions, decorations, books, and games. The courtyard is shared with the other three condos but felt like a private yard! Reading a book on the recliner chair overlooking the cliffs was wonderful! If I had to come up with a negative, the only thing I could mention is that the parking across the street is up a short incline and my sports car liked to bottom out on it when I would park. Luckily everything is so close you don't have to drive anywhere if you don't want to! I would definitely rent again!

Perfect getaway for our family!

  • 4 of 5

Our family of four very much enjoyed staying at Lisa and Tom's Ocean Front property. The place was extremely clean and comfortable (the beds were amazing!). It was stocked with almost everything we could have wanted: small coolers, beach chairs, boogie boards, kitchen/grilling utensils. We opened a bottle of wine and could have used a wine stopper (the cork didn't fit), but we managed. Lisa and Tom were always available to answer our questions. The internet was spotty and calls dropped, but it sounded like that wasn't typical so hopefully that will be fixed. The views were stunning and we loved listening to the waves crashing on shore. Low-flying planes pass overhead quite frequently, but that didn't bother us much at all. Although the patio is a common area, it didn't feel that way. We rarely saw any of the other guests in the four-plex. The patio was very comfortable and there was a gas grill where we cooked our steak and freshly caught fish. The sliding screen door kept falling off and Tom said they kept having to replace it because the salt air is hard on the wheels. He said we could just let it lean against the glass, but we kept putting it back up because we liked to have the breeze. Parking was available across the alley and was very convenient. Since parking in Ocean Beach is not so easy, we walked everywhere. After all, we were only a few blocks from everything. We recommend the great coffee and chai at The Coffee Method, fantastic smoothies at Newbreak Coffee & Café, fresh donuts and pastries at OB Donuts, and scrumptious pizza at Pizza Port. The beach and fishing pier were within easy walking distance (2 blocks), as well. We rode rented bikes through Mission Beach and felt claustrophobic with all of the people there. It's a very different vibe at Lisa and Tom's Ocean Beach property, where you feel like you're in a small community, rather than a crowded resort. When we come back to OB, we can't imagine staying anywhere else. Thank you for a wonderful vacation!
