About this listing
This is truly the most amazing location!! See and hear the sounds of the ocean, which is just 50 steps from the front door! Yet far enough that you will not be overwhelmed with noise.
Walk or bicycle 3 blocks to Newport Ave, OB's main street.
We are excited to offer our beach house in Ocean Beach, San Diego!
Incredibly adorable 1930's cottage, very cozy and inviting. Enjoy morning coffee, grill local seafood, or sip wine while you watch the sunset from the ocean view deck. You will be 50 steps from the sand! Breathe the sea air and listen to the waves crashing day and night.
You will have a comfortably furnished living/dining room, full kitchen and bath. There is a flat screen LCD TV and wireless internet service. The kitchen is equipped with full sized appliances, plus a microwave, toaster oven, and coffee maker. In the bedroom there is a queen bed, with cushy memory foam mattress. A queen Aerobed is also available. There is laundry on site, and garage parking for your vehicle. If you have a dog, there is a private dog run next to the house.
Shops, restaurants, and bars are within 3 blocks, including the famous Hodad's for burgers, and South Beach Bar & Grill for fish tacos. A great Farmer's Market happens every Wednesday afternoon. There is a pier for fishing or to stroll along, and a cafe at the end. There is a leash-free dog beach 4 blocks away.
Ocean Beach is a funky little unpretentious town, with colorful locals. This is the perfect spot to experience San Diego without any stress. It is a one of a kind, relaxed, non-touristy community. We are a 10 minute drive from San Diego International Airport and Sea World, 15 minutes from Downtown San Diego and the SD Zoo.
We believe our cottage is on the best block in Ocean Beach. We have beach chairs, beach towels, boogie boards, and a barbeque grill/charcoal for you to use. There are also two beach cruiser bicycles, all located in the garage. Our goal is to make your getaway very special and memorable.
During the summer months we will have a window air conditioner in the living room. You won't need it too often, but when you do, it pretty much cools the whole cottage.
We have a keyless entry system on the front door. This makes it very simple to come and go as you please, no keys to hassle with and no coordinating a meeting time. We live close by and will be available 24/7 by phone or text for any questions or concerns.
Interaction with Guests
Feel free to call or text if you need us for anything!
Ocean Beach has a real community feel, very small townish within the big city. Many independent, eclectic, shops and restaurants, very few corporate chain places. The most laid back beach and surfing area in San Diego! Be sure to stroll down Newport Avenue, as well as the side streets, and don't miss Sunset Cliffs.
Newport Avenue is the main street, and has most of the retail and eating establishments. It is 3 blocks away, an easy walk or bike ride. Dog beach is 3 blocks to the North.
If you will be leaving the area to see other San Diego attractions, a car is recommended. There is bus service, with a bus stop 2 blocks away on Cable street. The bus will take you Downtown, and you can also connect to the trolley, Amtrak, or Coaster trains.
Uber and Lyft are readily available,
Other Things to Note
The Pacific Ocean is right outside your door!! Walk barefoot to the beach every day, enjoy the beautiful sunsets from the deck.
Being so close to the airport, you will hear planes taking off. They start around 6:30 am and stop at about 11pm.
