Overview

About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4

Ocean Front Value !

New AC/Heating units for 2017

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

This one bedroom, one bath cottage 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 the back door and walk 15 steps to a panoramic ocean view! The shared backyard is large and spacious and includes patio furniture, lounge chairs, hot tub and gas BBQs. The perfect place to relax and spend time with family and friends.

While our neighborhood beach stairs are closed to damage at the moment, there is another set of stairs 1/2 block north of us to a cobblestone beach and a block north of there are stairs to a cement walking path along the water leading to a hidden sandy cove at Santa Cruz ave (with summer lifeguard on weekends) as well as the long expanse of sandy beach starting at the pier in front of the town of Ocean Beach itself.

We are also just steps away from Sunset Cliffs Park with its many hidden beaches and named for its exquisite sunset vistas, this 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.

Not keen on the location

  • 3 of 5

The property was great although a bit claustrophobic. I would have preferred the one next to the ocean. Super clean and very quiet. loved the common area where we met and chatted with all the renters and had wonderful sunsets together. Downside were the flies--unit was next to the garbage. Finally, I wanted to be able to WALK to the beach rather than packing the car and driving. We had to buy a hotpad, a flyswatter, paper towels, and toilet paper, all of which should have been included.

Owner's Response: We feel reviews should accurately reflect what our future guests will find here and since this review grossly misses on a few points we will address them now. This guest was provided at least two rolls of TP and a couple rolls of paper towels for their "two night stay" and more is always available from housekeeping if you need it. Seems they misread our welcome email which suggests longer term renters purchasing a few things themselves. It is also unfortunate that they missed seeing the hot pad(s) hanging right on the wall of the kitchen so not only do we suggest bringing your sun glasses to the beach but bring your seeing glasses too, chuckle. Lastly, we have fly swatter in every unit just in case (located under the sink). We also have brand new AC units which allow you to keep doors and windows closed and if there were any flies present during their stay it is because the whole town sometimes has a short lived "hatch" once or twice in the summer - this unit is in a great location just a few steps away from being directly over the water and is an amazing value for the low rates our honored guests enjoy and you will too. Just ask us anything you are not sure about, your vacation at the beach is waiting :)

Small but nice. Great outdoor area.

  • 4 of 5

Very quaint place. Best part was the outdoor area that looks out to the ocean. Not really Beach front or beach friendly, but great view, especially for sunsets. Lotsa rules. Can't touch the jacuzzi temp and it was Luke warm and sandy. Sofa couch takes up the entire living room and is pretty lumpy. Bathroom is small and you can tell it's been upgraded. Kitchen is great, although we didn't do any cooking. Very clean and in a nice area. Owners very attentive and will respond with any questions immediately.

Amazing location

  • 5 of 5

Location is key with this rental! We were a little scepticle because there are shared walls and I believe 2-3 other apartments but it was very quiet. There is a shared hot tub and the patio right over the water is also shared but we didn't see or hear the other guests. The view is amazing from the back yard! And we were able to walk to the other beaches. It is very close to stores and great restaraunts. The host was readily availible. This isn't a large place but it is perfect for a couple that was mostly doing outdoor activities. We would love to come again!

Excellent Romantic Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at your beach home. Thank you for allowing us to come stay at your place. The views were breath taking, we would love to return one day. The local area had so much to do, we just loved the walks along the beach and the views of the sunset in the evening.
