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.
7/11/13: We have added 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 mom & pop shops and restaurants, very few corporate chain places.
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 Sn Diego attractions, a car is recommended. There is bus service, with a bus stop 2 blocks away also.
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 the planes from time to time.

Absolutely no smoking, inside or out. We only ask that you respect our house, and treat it as if it were your own. This is not a party house, and there are neighbors with school aged children, so please be respectful of their need for quiet after 9 pm. Laundry room and garage are shared with guests in the back. Please take out your trash, wash dishes that you use, and clean up after your dog.
Joanie was very friendly and helpful and the house was amazing. We booked for the weekend for my husbands birthday and it was perfect. We were just steps from the beach and walking distance to all shops and restaurants. We parked the car when we arrived and it didn't get moved again until we left, it was great staying in such a prime location. We spent a lot of time sitting on the front patio enjoying the view of the beach. The house is stocked with anything you might need, right down to snacks and juice. I would definitely recommend this house to friends and family and would absolutely stay here again!
Wir haben zum Abschluss unserer USA-Reise 2 Tag in San Diego verbracht. Das Cottage liegt sehr schön, direkt am Strand. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Das Haus war sehr sauber und ordentlich.
Genau das richtige für entspannte Tage am Stand von San Diego.
We enjoyed our stay in Joanie's cottage very much. Perfect location near the beach and we enjoyed using the beach chairs, sun umbrella and bikes. Ocean Beach is a great place to relax and is close to Seaworld and the downtown Gaslamp District. The kitchen was fully stocked with bottled water, fruit, nuts, coffee and cooking equipment and was very clean. Bed was soft and living room/dining area fully furnished. The only little thing to note is the periodic airplane noise from San Diego airport. However, there are very few flights after 10:00 pm. Overall we loved our stay and would stay again if we could.
Joanie's Beach cottage was super cute! What a perfect location having the beach steps away and just a short walk into town. Everything was perfect from the amazingly comfortable bed to sun deck out front. We will definitely be back!
What a lovely cottage in a fantastic location. Check in was nice and easy. The cottage was lovely and clean and beautifully decorated and furnished. The bed was so comfortable with very nice bedding. The kitchen was well equipped with lots of everyday essentials plus snacks and refreshments which were very welcome after our journey. Joanie was really helpful and recommended where to eat and get our groceries from. The beach was great for watching the waves and sunset. There were plenty of beach chairs and bikes for exploring. The area is just as described with an eclectic mix of people. The aircraft noise was expected but not too troublesome and stopped overnight- there were parrots who joined in the morning chorus, too. We would definitely recommend the cottage and stay again ourselves.
Das Cottage hat eine sehr schöne Lage sehr nah am Strand. Da der Flughafen sich in der Nähe befindet, wurde man vor allen Dingen morgens und abends durch die startenden Flugzeuge etwas gestört. Die Einrichtung des Hauses war angenehm und entsprach der Beschreibung. Für das leibliche Wohl war vorgesorgt mit Wasser, Orangensaft, Cerealien usw.. Auch Unterlagen für die Benutzung des öffentlichen Verkehrs war vorhanden. Wir haben uns dort sehr wohl gefühlt.
