COME ENJOY RELAXING FUN IN the neighborhood of OCEAN BEACH in SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA!

Please note that the VRBO calendar DOES NOT show accurate availability. Please visit www.blueheroncottages.com for current availability.

Recently upgraded,  Blue Heron Cottages offers our guests the ultimate in turn key vacationing. Here you will find all you need for your stay of 3 days or 3 weeks. Each of our 4 dog friendly cottages sleeps up to 4 adults comfortable.  You will find a queen sized bed in the separate bedroom, and, in the living room, a sectional sofa that converts to a VERY comfortable full queen bed. The two areas share the jack-and-jill bathroom which can be accessed from either the living room or the bedroom.  Each cottage opens on to a lovely, large and fenced-in courtyard. Amenities include a fully equipped, chef inspiring, kitchen, 2 flat screen TV's,DVD player, cable television and free wireless internet. You will find all linens, beach towels, beach cruisers, boogie and surf boards, and sand toys for your use. 

We are located close to all things San Diego in the greatest little neighborhood: Ocean Beach.  This area has a wonderful community feeling, very peaceful and eclectic.  A variety of restaurants, boutiques and antique shops are only 4 blocks away.
Don't miss your opportunity to purchase the freshest, and most delicious locally grown produce, art, flowers, and more every Wednesday at OB's Farmers Market on Newport Avenue.

There is a beautiful little cove perfect for playing and relaxing just a block and a half away. The main beach is just at the end of Newport Ave, an easy bike ride minutes away. 

If you have a dog, Ocean Beach and Blue Heron Cottages are very dog friendly .  Dog Beach is only about a half mile away, an easy walk or a quick ride.

  Ocean Beach, where we are located, is NOT a vey touristy area, but you are very close to all the main tourist attractions. Most San Diego attractions are within 20-30 minutes by car. Or, a bus stop is right across the street from the cottages, and that should hook you up with transportation around SD.  We are located across the bay a few mintues away from Sea World, 20 minutes away from the San Diego Zoo, Petco Park, and the Gas Lamp District and the San Deigo Airport. Disneyland is only about 2 hours away, and Legoland is about 1 hour.

Each cottage comes with a garage suitable for a compact car, and having a small car in SD is much easier, however, you can easily walk or bike all over Ocean Beach...always safe, and relaxing.

Please check out our location on the google map (we are on the corner of Cable and Santa Cruz in San Diego, CA 92107)  You will get a an idea as to how San Deigo is laid out and where we are located in relation to other attractions and beaches. 

Enjoy the large shared courtyard under the gazebo listening to the wild local parrots as they go about their day. Barbecue with friends and family, toss the ball for your pup, or just relax and soak up the sun. The courtyard is the perfect spot to gather and enjoy the evening sea breeze or morning coffee.

Enjoy all that San Diego has to offer then come back and relax in your home away from home at Blue Heron Cottages.

                      Car: Necessary

                      Our Cottages are located just 4 blocks from eclectic downtown Ocean Beach/Newport Ave, where you will find great dining (best Lobster Tacos anywhere!), antiquing, boutique shopping, banking, groceries, and a fabulous farmers market on Wed. Just a bit past Newport Ave is the best place to be in the world if you are a dog: Dog Beach! Your dog is free to play off leash in the gentle waves or run to their hearts desire on the acres of sandy beach. Dog Washes are available very close to Dog Beach.

                      San Diego is a fun haven. Sea World, the San Diego Zoo, Downtown San Diego and PetCo Park (for the baseball fans) and QualCom Stadium (home of the Chargers), are within a 20 min drive. La Jolla, CA with its high end shopping, stunning Aquarium (great for kids), Torrey Pines Golf Course, and gourmet dinning are an easy 20 min freeway ride away.

                      Scenic Balboa Park, home of the San Diego Zoo, is also where you will find various museums that you and your family might be interested in.The Aerospace Museum, Science Museum, Museum of Man, and the Museum of Natural History are all within walking distance of each other. There are also great dinning options in Balboa Park.

                      Old Town, where San Diego first laid down her roots, is also a fun, historical way to spend your day, and you are only 15 mins away.

                      If you are coming for beach fun, you have come to the right place. Ocean Beach has surf lessons, Point Loma (right around the corner) is where the whale watching boats set sail, and Deep Sea Fishing is a very short drive from the cottages.

                      If you are looking for more kid friendly fun, we are only 45 mins from the San Diego Wild Animal Park and Legoland USA. You could even manage a day trip to Disneyland if you wanted, we are only 1.5 hours away.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2006

                      About the owner: I was born and raised in San Diego, and I am an avid dog lover (we have 7!). I love San Diego, know the area well and am happy to share whatever information I can to enhance your stay.

                      Why the Owner Chose Ocean Beach:
                      Blue Heron Cottages are perfectly located in Ocean Beach. I love the eclectic atmosphere of this neighborhood. With San Diego being such a traditionally touristy area, Ocean Beach is a breath of fresh air. Our cottages have an oasis of a courtyard, large, bright and enclosed for privacy...not usually found in the beach areas.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      Our cottages have an oasis of a courtyard, large, bright and enclosed for privacy...not usually found in the beach areas...and great for your pups! We pride ourselves on the cleanliness of our cottages, and with how efficient and well equipped they are. You will receive personal, professional customer service through the booking process and during your stay. We have on site management to insure that all concerns and needs are handled quickly. Additionally, we offer complimentary bikes, boogie boards, surf boards, and beach chairs for your use on a first come, first serve basis, throughout your stay.
