Overview

About the property

2 BED, 1 BATH,Sleeps 5, Private yard, Steps to Dog Beach, Bring your dogs!

summer dates still available. Each week includes a free night, and each month includes a free week.

Spend your relaxing beach getaway in our recently remodeled and updated 2 bedroom, 1 bath property on the water in San Diego's unique beach community of Ocean Beach. This lovely space includes a private, completely fenced back yard with patio and gas grill, off-street covered parking ,private secure WiFi, and quick Dog Beach access. There is never an extra charge for pets!

For your comfort and protection, ALL linens (sheets, pillowcases, mattress pads, zippered pillow covers, bedspreads, throws and throw rugs) are clean and fresh for each new guest. This is much higher than the industry standard, but do you want your kids and pets on anything less?

This beautiful apartment begins with a cozy living room just off your carport. It features cushy chairs with ottomans, an electric fireplace/heater, and a 32' flat screen TV with DVD player and ATT Uverse HDTV plus DVR. The hope chest contains beach towels and there are beach bags and hats for your use by the back door so you can grab them on your way to the beach!

Down the hall is the larger of the 2 bedrooms with a queen sized bed, 21' flat screen TV with DVR access and a large closet complete with an assortment of fresh robes and slippers. There are extra blankets/pillows in closet.

Further down the hall is the apartment's spa bathroom complete with tub/rain shower, vanity space for 2 and a

fabulous glass pedestal sink. The shower is lined in slate style ceramic tile trimmed in slate and limestone and the vanity area and back splash are glass mosaic tile. There are plenty of fluffy towels to pamper you and a powerful hair dryer.

The metal dining table sits under a casual nickel chandelier and seats 6. The adjacent lounge has a small couch, lounge chair and a wicker rocker, and another flat screen TV with DVR access. This area can seat 6 comfortably. Also in this open area is a brand new kitchen with glass doored cupboards, a very deep stainless steel sink (for bathing small dogs and children?) and new stainless range and refrigerator. The countertops are Italian porcelain tile. There is also a pull-out pantry, as well as dishes, glasses and crystal stemware for at least 8 people.

The smaller bedroom houses adult extra-long bunk beds along with a built in desk and another closet complete with fresh robes and slippers. Its window looks out onto the patio and back yard. There are also 2 twin air beds with linens.

Walk out the back door and you will find a covered patio and landscaped 'beachy' back yard covered by shade sails and decorated with old surfboards. There is an outdoor lounge area with comfy Adirondack chairs. The back gate opens onto a paved path, the San Diego River estuary (a wetlands sanctuary for birds such as blue herons, snowy egrets, pelicans and osprey) and then the beaches. The beach on the left is for people and the beach on the right is a unique off-leash area for dogs to run, swim and socialize!

All beds have Select Comfort Sleep Number mattresses (queen with dual controls) so you can adjust the firmness to any degree and as often as you like. These mattresses can also be dry cleaned as necessary. The pillows are encased in hypoallergenic covers that are washed after each use.

The simple, tasteful decor features original works by local painters and sculptors. The dog-proof, kid-proof floors are concrete which has been stained and sealed and are textured to be slip-resistant. The throw rugs are washed after every use. To help circulate the ocean breezes, there are ceiling fans in every area of the apartment.

Brita Ferm purchased this condo in 1995

Why Brita Ferm chose San Diego County

Staying in our property for a weekend or 6 months, lets you have the bona fide beach lifestyle. It is super clean and comfy, practically kid- and dog-proof, and has the best neighbors in OB...us!

What makes this condo unique

Bird sanctuary just beyond your back gate, steps to Dog Beach and other wide sandy beaches, top notch restaurants, and a small town atmosphere greet you in one of Southern California's few remaining authentic beach communities. This location and the potential to remodel into living quarters both practical and cozy are what sold us on our property. We hope you'll agree!

Property as pictured online, even better in person!

  • 5 of 5

Brita was welcoming and so easy to work with for check in/out. Great place for a vacation, especially with our dogs! We loved the location...able to walk to beach, bike path, shopping, and food places. We really appreciated being able to barbecue on site along with using the full kitchen for preparing some of our meals. We look forward to staying here again!

Perfect Location for our Pups!

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time at Brita's Beach house. Having our dogs with us forced us to relax with the perfect location located right at dog beach. We plan on making this trip a tradition as this home was perfect us & the dogs. House has more amenities than any other beach house I've stayed in. We also appreciated the cleanliness of the beds & home in general (Several pillow covers/Bed covers to insure cleanliness) Thank you for a wonderful trip & we will be back!

Clean, cozy, at the dog beach

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic property. It's a cozy little beach house with all the necessary amenities. The small backyard is a tiny little paradise and you are steps away from the dog beach. Additionally, all the shops and bars are within a mile walking, as is the pier. And Brita was extremely friendly and accommodating, thanks so much Brita, would love to stay there again.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Brita's property is very clean and well stocked. She made check in/out very easy.

We had a BBQ, went to the beach daily, and only had to drive (maybe 10 minutes) to spend an afternoon in Old Town. If you're a runner, walker, cyclist, etc you will appreciate the location a bit more. Perfect family vacation spot!!
