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.

The space

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. The sofa bed in the living room has an inflatable mattress, which is very comfortable. 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. The street dead-ends at the sand! We have beach chairs, beach towels, boogie boards, and a barbeque grill/charcoal for you to use. There are also four 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.

Guest access

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! We live just one mile away. Otherwise, we will respect your privacy.

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.

*** For extended family/friends, our cozy studio and 2 bedroom/2 bath houses on the same property are listed on Airbnb. The studio is titled "Beachside Studio with Parking" and the two bedroom is "Awesome Beachside Oasis" All at the same fantastic location, and with off-street parking spaces. Please contact me for more info.

Wow! Joanie's place is amazing! Exactly what we needed for our family vacation. The beach was so close, restaurants and shopping within walking distance. The cottage was perfect for our family of three. Joanie had waters and snacks waiting for us. Great extra touch. It was a holiday weekend so the fact that we had a driveway to park in was such a bonus. Everything that you may need for cooking meals(pots, pans, spices) was provide. Organic coffee for mornings and wine opener and wine glasses for evenings out on the deck. Can't say enough great things about Joanie's place.

My husband and I stayed at Joanie's beach house for our honeymoon. We enjoyed her snacks she provided, she even left a thoughtful card and wine to congratulate us. Joanie was quick to respond to our questions. We absolutely loved that the home was incredibly close to the beach and having a safe and consistent parking spot made a big difference. The one thing that caught us off guard was that there were guests residing in the back of the beach house and they also shared the laundry room with us too. There came a point where they left their clothes in the wash for some time and we had to tell them that we share the laundry room and will need wash our clothes too. It was a bit awkward. Overall I look forward to another stay at Joanie's.

Response from Joanie:
Yes, as stated in the House Manual and directions, the laundry room, garage, bikes, and beach toys are shared. There are only two units that share. Most everyone has been able to get along and work with this arrangement.

Awesome cottage steps from the beach. Dog beach is just a short walk up the beach. The front patio was my haven with views of the ocean and those stunning sunsets. Perfectly appointed cottage with everything required for a respite at the beach. Having a dedicated parking spot is priceless. Comfortable, clean, and in the perfect location. Joanie leaves perfect detailed info about the house. I can't think of anything that's missing or lacking. It was perfect for me and my pooch!

Location couldn't be better, within walking distance of lots of restaurants and the beach starts literally at the end of the street. The cottage is cozy and comfortable, and is stocked with everything you need including spices, sandwich bags and sunscreen. For the beach, you have chairs, towels, blankets, boogie boards and other toys. Couldn't have picked a better spot for our getaway.

Joanie's place is perfect for a trip to the beach. You can hear the waves from the front porch! Bikes and boogie boards are a huge plus. It's right down the street from Ocean Beach, a very laid back beach town. It's a great place to get away!

I am a Registered Nurse, my husband is a Pharmacist. We moved here from Denver, Colorado. We have lived in San Diego for 22 years, and have owned this cottage for 12 years. We love the home town feel of Ocean Beach, and the convenience to all of the attractions San Diego has to offer. We have been Airbnb hosts since 2/2013, and are loving every minute of it!
