I moved from Minnesota in 2006 and have lived in Ocean Beach at the same location ever since. I enjoy traveling, camping, hiking, biking, sailing and pretty much anything outdoors.
I travel allot for my job and enjoy seeing the country.

Great location and cute place! Neighbors were nice, too. Would definitely stay here again! You could walk to so many places!!
I absolutely loved staying at Mark's house! His place was perfectly located in the heart of OB, only a block from the beach and two blocks from the main strip. Mark's place was fully stocked with everything we needed to feel comfortable, including extra towels, Keurig coffee, and even surf boards. He was easy to communicate with and very accommodating. My friends and I can't wait to stay here again next summer!!
My family of 5 stayed at Beach Getaway for 3 nights over Labor Day Weekend. Mark was very easy to contact and he always responded to my questions promptly. He was very helpful in setting up his place for our specific needs. We were surprised at how close his place is to the beach. It took us less than 5 minutes to walk there even with a 3 and 5 year old. Also only a short 5-10 minute walk to Newport Ave and all of it's shops and restaurants. Because of the busy holiday weekend parking around the beach was difficult. We loved the fact that when we arrived Friday morning and parked right in front of Mark's house we never had to get in the car again. Everything was that close, even with young kids. The house was exactly as the pictures show. It actually had a little more room than I expected. Our 3 adults and 2 kids had plenty of room and privacy. I will definitely be checking with Mark again next time we travel to San Diego, especially if we bring kids.
Everything was exactly as posted. Mark was a great host. Very easy to get in contact with. Great location as it's only a block and a half from the beach. Ocean Beach is a great area with many great shops and restaurants. Would highly recommend staying at Mark's.
Mark's house was THE place to be for us !
We were 4 friends from France, discovering California... And San Diego was our favorite place, thanks to the surf in OB, and the place where we lived : we could hear waves from the garden !!!
It was really like a "vacations home" for us, and we really enjoyed walking to the beach every night : it's so close !
Our best memory for this place ! We miss OB ! and hope to come back again to this place, because we really felt as our home !
We spent a great week in Ocean Beach, sightseeing and surfing. Mark's place was very convenient to host a party of five like us, among which 3 teenagers, one a half block from the sea. We used his BBQ everyday.Mark was kind enough to let us use his boards.
Good communication with Mark before and through out our stay.
Thanks Mark. Regards, Rodrick
It was exactly as described. Definitely charming. My group of 6 enjoyed the space and the amenities like Mark's computer/TV because we would watch videos from the day off of it--very nifty! Kitchen is fully stocked and we also utilized the grill. Best part of this place is that it is within walking distance to the beach. Literally 5 minutes walking distance to the beach! If I was presented with an opportunity to stay there again I would, but bring less people with me. Best way to contact him was through text and would always provide a quick response.
Mark's place was EXACTLY as described and pictured (helpful!). He accommodated our late arrival (which happened with my last airbnb rental; sincerely hoping NOT to make a habit out of it!) (Thanks again, Mark!). We appreciated the clean apt. condition and fully equipped kitchen. The location was THE BEST! (as described): 1-1/2 short blocks to the beautiful beach, 3 short blocks to the fun & funky Newport St. shopping area & quick, easy access to the 2 main freeways thru San Diego, Old Town, universities and everywhere else went. We loved Ocean Beach and it's proximity to SD, etc. Mark was really easy to deal with: pleasant, relaxed & responsive to any questions. I highly recommend a stay at Mark's "Beach Getaway;" hope to stay there again if & when I ever get the chance to return to San Diego.
Mark's apartment was very conveniently located, very close to the beach and downtown San Diego as well. The facilities inside were as described and mark was very helpful. He had left a lot of stuff for us but unfortunately we did not get time to enjoy everything. The neighborhood was quiet and clean.
Great place so close to the beach! Mark was extremely accommodating and we were very pleased with the house.Great value for such an ocean-side area. The power was down in the neighborhood but it was not our hosts fault and he was extremely helpful even when the power was down. Thanks again! Great place!
Mark and Chesea came for a music concert in our famous Santa Barbara Bowl so it gave me a chance to learn a bit about what goes on there. For me, years ago, it was about being cold and uncomfortable on the concrete benches, but not minding while we cuddled and sang and drank with our friends.
Mark and Chelsea were a joy to host.
