Great location. Clean. All the comforts of home.

  • 5 of 5

Seamless transaction. The hosts were gracious to accommodate us on a last minute extension of our stay. Nice place. Walking distance to anything you’d want to do in Ocean Beach. Also a short drive to downtown, Mission and Pacific Beaches, and La Jolla.

Did not live up to expectations

  • 2 of 5

The property said it accommodations for 8 people, the air mattress did not inflate, the sofa sleeper mattress had a huge brown stain on it, so none of us wanted to sleep on it, and even if we did, there was not enough bedding for both the sofa sleeper and the air mattress. We had to take cushions off the couch and make up a bed for the kids to sleep on the floor with. The double mattress sagged so much in the middle it was very uncomfortable. There was not enough silverware for all of us and the cupboards were bare, not even enough salt for one shake was left. The property advertised basic condiments and there was nothing there! Every other place we rented from VRBO at least had basics and enough silverware for all of us. If you are going to advertise for 8 people then you should have what 8 people require.

Owner's Response: Hey Charlene, I'm very sorry you had a less than excellent stay at the Beach House. As a follow up, I inspected the air mattress and sofa sleeper following your stay and they seemed to work properly, so I'm not sure what happened. The sofa sleeper did indeed have a stain - though not something that would come off or cause problems if you slept on it. The extra sheets and pillows for the sofa are located in the upstairs bedroom closet, sorry you didn't find them. The mattress was indeed past it's prime so we've replaced it. Thanks for your feedback as it helps us to continually improve the property for future guests! Very best regards, Jim

It was a cool house. Not far from dog beach. It was close to everything. We'll be back, thank you

  • 4 of 5

It was a nice walk to the beach. The kitchen was well equipped. The beds were comfy. The only thing was that there were a bunch of lights out and that made it difficult going up and down the stairs, and lighting the hallway. But overall a cute house. We will go back, we really enjoyed our get away❤

Great house, great location. Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Overall enjoyed the stay, I love the neighborhood and walking distance to the beach. The layout of the house is great for two couples as bedrooms are the same size and each have their own bathroom (versus many rentals which have a clear "parents" and "kids" room). Having two garage parking spaces was also really great, as this neighborhood can be difficult to find parking.

The owners were super responsive and provided thorough information ahead of the stay.

My only negative comment, not on the owners or the house specifically, but the kitchen was pretty sparsely stocked with "essentials"-- there was some kind of cooking spray, but no regular olive oil, for example. I'm sure this fluctuates over time as guests buy and leave different items, I guess I'd just suggest taking a better look than I did before grocery shopping so you know what you need!
