Photos and Description of this Ocean Beach holiday cottage

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4

New Totally Renovated Cliffside Whitewater Views !

Enjoy the panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean from the shared yard.

This one bedroom, one bath house is fully furnished with all the amenities including a fully equipped kitchen that allows you to prepare meals at home. The house comfortably sleeps 4 people. The master bedroom has a queen size bed and a sofa sleeper in the living room. Step out each door to a panoramic ocean view from the cliff overlooking the water a few yards below! The shared backyard is large and spacious and includes patio furniture, lounge chairs, gas BBQs and hot tub. The perfect place to relax and spend time with family and friends. Beach access is less than a 1/2 a block away.

Also your cottage is just steps away from Sunset Cliffs Park and its many hidden beaches. Named for its exquisite sunset vistas, Sunset Cliffs Park encompasses 68 acres of bluffs and walking paths high above the wide expanse of the Pacific Ocean. With its rugged coastline and panoramic views, this area is popular with surfers, ocean-gazers, and folks who like to cruise Sunset Cliffs Boulevard, which runs the length of the cliffs. Drive along Sunset Cliffs Boulevard and enjoy breathtaking views and photo opportunities. It also makes a nice bike ride or walk, and it’s a great place to watch birds. You can see migrating California gray whales during the winter months from high on the bluffs.

Ocean beach is a relaxed beach town, encounter a distinctive downtown district just steps from the ocean, enjoy San Diego's finest and largest Farmers Market, experience the original Dog Beach, or stroll on the longest concrete pier on the west coast. We are located across the bay a few minutes by car from the popular Sea World, 5 minutes from the San Diego Airport and 10 minutes from the World Famous San Diego Zoo, Petco Park and the Gas Lamp District.

Broken Arrow, Ok.

Loved it! Great view.

  • 5 of 5

We were only there for one night, but wished we could have stayed much longer. The cottage was lovely, and very comfortable. We enjoyed watching the sunset and listening to the sound of the waves. Heavenly!!!! When we are able to visit San Diego again, will definitely try to book this adorable place.

Another great week at the beach

  • 5 of 5

Lovely accommodations. Breakfast outside enjoying ocean waves. This is the 2nd year we have stayed here and both times were very relaxing. OB has a great Wed. Farmer's Market so you can have fresh produce to fix meals and enjoy the view and gorgeous sunsets. Absolutely would recommend for a great beach getaway!

Incredible spot – incredible vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family chose this spot in San Diego due to the perfect location, incredible value, the awesome pictures online and the beautiful spot right on the cliffs We were nothing but thrilled the moment we got to the property. If you want to hear the waves crashing on against the bluff right below you, see the beautiful blue Pacific, watch sail boats go by and witness the most gorgeous sunsets imaginable, you've picked the right place. The cottage was very welcoming, updated, clean and very well appointed. The service and attention to detail by the property manager was the best. He was available for any questions, and they were immediately answered. I can't say enough about our experience-all around five stars!

A Great Palce with a Great View.

  • 4 of 5

Please let me start by saying that property is worthy of a 5 star rating.It has all of the amenities that you may need on vacation. It is in a great location, easy to find and close to pretty much everything. It has a wonderful view, a nice common yard with a fire pit and two jacuzzis. You basically walk out onto the porch and you are feet from the cliffs of the pacific. It has a private parking space ( a must have in the area) that is very close to the property, so you don't have to fight for parking on the street.

My wife an I stayed there for 5 nights and were very comfortable with the accommodations, there was plenty of room for us as we prefer renting a property as opposed to staying at a Hotel. It just feels more like vacation to us to be in place that has a living room, kitchen and bedroom, which this property has. It is very clean and updated and had everything that we needed.

The only issue we had was there was some emergency property repair that had to be done on the first day that we were there. This was unforeseen by the owners and very much unexpected. The owner did notify me via email prior to our arrival. We completely understand that these things happen and we planned our first day our of the property anyway so when the workers arrived we were not surprised and knew we would be out for the day. However when the workers arrived the next day it was not expected as they were to complete the work in one day (but we all know how that goes). At any rate we contacted David and explained what was going on and he jumped all over it and contacted Mike and Lori to get resolution.

So the only reason that I am not giving it a five star rating is because of the property repair that took longer than expected. But do not let my mentioning of this happening deter anyone from renting this property. The property is wonderful; David , Mike and Lori are great, they took care of the issue and went above and beyond to provide exceptional customer service to ensure our needs were met for the rest of stay, everything was up to the level that we expected.

I would definitely recommend this property to folks that want to stay right on Ocean Beach. Thank you David, Mike and Lori for a wonderful place to stay.
