The Space

Greetings! This home is a gem in Ocean Beach. A one bedroom private cottage 3 blocks from the beach, and 3 blocks from Newport Ave, the main strip in OB teeming with live music, restaurants, bars, and shopping. There is easy access to public transportation and freeways. The neighborhood is safe and quiet. The house is awesome, with a private backyard, wood floors, 2 beach cruiser bikes with locks for you to use, wireless internet, desk/printer, and a longboard surfboard for use (deposit required).

YOUR HOME: the master bedroom has a queen size bed, designer matching furniture, and private entrance to the bathroom. There is also a super comfy, high-quality futon couch that can be converted into a second full-size bed. Clean linen and a clean towel will be waiting for you when you check in. The backyard has a BBQ and chairs for evening dinners al fresca. *NOTE: flights go directly over the entire Ocean Beach and Point Loma areas, and you can hear the flights go overhead. It's never bothered me, and there aren't many flights at night, but just a heads up.

PERKS: I have been hosting people for over 7 years and will provide you with a list of local hidden gems to eat and explore when you check-in. You will access to my two beach cruiser bicycles and my surfboard (only for experienced surfers, deposit required). You will be able to call me at anytime if you have any questions, or want some great ideas on what to do.

ABOUT ME: I own my own business called Green Truck, a sustainable food truck that runs off veggie oil and biodiesel, serving handmade street food made from organic ingredients sourced from local organic farms. I have a house in Venice Beach as well, which is why my home in Ocean Beach is available.

All my guests have given me rave reviews. I look forward to making you another one of my happy "customers"! Email me with any questions you may have.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • David's place was just as listed. The location is great for enjoying the beach and the shops of Ocean Beach. The house is right by a bus stop so getting around by public transit is easy. The bed was comfortable and all amenities were there. David was super easy to work with. I'd stay there again.

  • We had a great time at David's beach cottage. The cottage was clean and spacious and the location COULD NOT BE BETTER. We used the bikes David has in the backyard and road around town. There is a table with benches in front of the cottage where we enjoyed coffee and breakfast in the morning. David was super helpful, we were in communication when needed leading up to the trip and checking in and out was super easy. David was a great host. I highly recommend Ocean Beach and David's cottage!!!

  • David's beach cottage is a sweet place just blocks from the beach in a wonderful neighborhood! This town is SUPER chill and there are many restaurants to choose from that are walking distance. Originally there were going to be 4 adults, though we ended up with three, which in hindsight was better as it might have been a bit tight. It is a smaller space, but very clean and airy. Finding street parking was a bit of a challenge at times but I think this may have to do with the fact that it was spring break... and we spent most of our time at the beach anyways, so it didn't really matter. David was super easy to work with and made our first airbnb experience an easy one. He is clearly an economically conscious individual with a "green" lifestyle and provides you with chemical free/biodegradable products which made me feel right at home.
    Perfect beach cottage experience.. I would definitely come back and also recommend his space to others.

  • Great host. Cottage is steps from the beach. Stay here if you want a local beach town experience.

  • Great location, street parking wasn't too bad at all... David made the whole process very easy. Highly recommended for the OB area, a few blocks from the beach and just a short drive to the Sunset Cliffs. Stop thinking about it and DO IT!

    Thanks again David!

  • Great location for a little home base in Ocean Beach! David's place is a small cottage but since the weather is nice and there is space outdoors our family of 4 was perfectly happy here! As tourists you're out at the beach all day anyway! I was happy to see the type of fair trade, biodegradable soap, shampoo and cleaning products that I use in my own home. Everything was clean, instructions and directions were clear. It's an easy walk to the beach, shops and restaurants. The cab from the airport was reasonable. The airplanes do fly over starting around 6am but it's not too much of a bother. Bus goes by regularly too. Neighbours are super friendly and the whole area is so relaxed. Even the dogs are chilled out. Thanks David for making our stay so easy!

  • Great little cottage in Ocean Beach. The back patio was great for an outdoor bbq dinner and the bikes provided make it easy to get around the area. Nice clean place for a weekend trip!

  • David was great at communicating prior to our stay. The location was near the beach but also on a semi busy street and was a little loud on the weekend. When we arrived, the place had not been cleaned from the last guests. This was a little unsettling, but when we called David to let him know, he apologized and refunded the cleaning fee. On top of that, there were a couple other miscommunications that made the stay less than pleasant. I wish it would have been a better stay, as most of the previous guests indicated.

  • David's beach cottage was a fantastic place to stay in San Diego. We got to experience the amazing town of Ocean Beach and enjoy the farmer's market, awesome restaurants and yummy smoothies! Very cozy place and it was great to have tea, coffee and salad dressing in the fridge to make us feel at home. Great stay overall.

  • We had a perfect stay at Davids beach cottage.
    The location is great, just a couple minutes walk to the beach and restaurants. Everything was nice and clean. A comfortable bed, a really fresh bathroom and a well equipped kitchen. The patio is great too. We would love to come back and can highly recommend David as a host.

Green Truck (Owner)
I'm a musician, surfer, and overall fun-loving responsible person. I own a business called Green Truck, a veg-oil powered food truck and catering business serving up hand made gourmet food sourced from local organic farms. Therefore, I'm always busy and out and about! I've traveled to New Zealand, Ireland, London, many parts of Mexico, Costa Rica, and all over the states. I like to experience the raw, local flavor of places. I've been an avid user and supporter of (website hidden), and really do love being a host. I love music, I am a singer/songwriter and play shows locally in San Diego and love seeing live music. Some of my favorites are Dave Matthews Band, Sean Hayes, Xavier Rudd, De La Soul, Bela Fleck, The Black Keys, Ray Charles.... so many it's hard to list! My motto to life is... You don’t get to choose how you are going to die. Or when. You can only decide how you are going to live. Now. ... so I say LIVE
