Property description

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. .

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 6 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. 

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 gazebo is the perfect spot to gather and enjoy the evening sea breeze or morning coffee.

     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 on Newport Ave. 
 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 beach 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 one 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  San Diego tourist attractions. Each cottage comes with an off street parking spot suitable for all autos. Most San Diego attractions are within 20-30 minutes by car. We are located across the bay a few minutes away from Sea World, 20 minutes away from the San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park, Petco Park (home of the Padres), the Gas Lamp District as well as the San Deigo Airport. Disneyland is only about 2 hours away, and Legoland is about 1 hour.  A bus stop is right across the street from the cottages, and that should hook you up with transportation around SD if necessary. However, you can easily walk or bike all over Ocean Beach...always safe, and relaxing.   
     
     
    Please check out our location using the location tab on this site (we are on the corner of Cable Street and Santa Cruz Avenue 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. 

          I was born and raised in San Deigo and if you have questions about the area I would be happy to tell you what I can.  Our onsite manager is also a San Deigo local and can be of assistance if you need any support while in SD.  Enjoy all that San Diego has to offer then come back and relax in your home away from home at Blue Heron Cottages.

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.
