Property description

Eye-popping views from this 2 bedroom/2 bath ocean front condo, about as close to the water as you can get. Feel like you're sitting on top of the ocean, with forever vistas across the sparkling Pacific, and nothing to obstruct your view except the occasional line of pelicans. Sounds of crashing waves reverberate throughout, and quiet mornings with just you, the fog, and the whitewater will bleed away any stress from the outside world. Later, sit on the balcony with a cocktail and watch the surfers ride the glassy afternoon swells, or relax in your king bed and watch for whales and dolphins.

This condo is beautifully furnished, with state of the art kitchen and bathrooms, and very comfortable beds. Enjoy your 55' HDTV and blu-ray player. King sized bed in the oceanfront master bedroom, and queen-sized bed in the second bedroom. Each bedroom has its own bathroom for privacy. The views are to die for--in the evening, watch the orange sun descend over the endless ocean while pelicans fly low over the waves, and the last surfers of the day look for the one perfect ride back to shore. Explore the tidepools below, or if you're feeling brave, head out yourself to the well-known surfing spot immediately below your balcony (note, it's not for beginners).

The best advertisement we can make for this beautiful place is to mention the very large numbers of repeat guests that we have--they know that once you discover a good thing, you don't let it go!

This home is located in Ocean Beach, San Diego's most unique beach town. OB is a small community of fantastic restaurants, antique stores, and artistic residents. It is also the closest beach community to the heart of San Diego, being only 10 minutes from the airport and 15 minutes from downtown. All restaurants, bars, and shopping are within a 10 minute walk, as well as smaller grocery stores. Park in the underground garage, and don't get in your car again until you leave!

We believe in truth in advertising. All pictures in this ad were taken in or from the unit, with the exception of the last two. Second to last picture taken at Bermuda pocket beach 2 blocks from unit. Last picture taken at main OB beach, 10 minute walk from unit.

Car: Not Necessary

Ocean beach is a fantastic, eclectic beach town out of the 60's. Filled with funky shops, funky people, and some of the best restaurants in San Diego (all casual), Ocean Beach is about as unique as you can get. There are very few chain stores here, and almost all establishments are locally owned and run. People watching is unparalleled, and a trip to the Wednesday farmer's market is a feast for the eyes--watch families, students, hippies and tourists from every part of the world mix together in a good-natured celebration of food and music. For those into antiques, the main street (Newport) is filled with antique stores. Closer to the water on Newport, eat the best fish tacos in San Diego at South Beach Bar and Grill, or enjoy one of Hodads' famous burgers. All of OB's best attractions are within walking distance from the condo--you won't need your car while you're here. At the same time, the condo is several blocks away from main street so that you can enjoy peace and quiet at night, except for the sound of waves which crash against the rocks below. It really is the best of all worlds--a vibrant town you can walk to during the day, and a residential oceanfront experience at night.

Of course, if you want to drive, you can. Cabrillo monument and the best views in San Diego are 5 minutes drive. The airport is 10 minutes away, downtown, gaslamp, and convention center are about 13-14 minutes away, and Balboa park/zoo is about 15 minutes away.


Manager info

About: We are long time San Diego residents, and intimately familiar with all the beach communities here. While all the San Diego beach neighborhoods have their charms, OB is special to us. The reasons are many--its small-town feel, its eclectic residents, its famously un-snooty yet fantastic restaurants, its weird/cool vibe, and its breathtaking ocean views. So when it came time to purchase, there was only one area we'd consider, and that is Ocean Beach. We love the idea of allowing others to experience the same joy we feel by staying in this magical place.

Why Ocean Beach:
My wife and I simply love ocean beach, which is so different from any of the other beach communities. OB is weird in a very good way, and any of OB's annual festivals or its weekly farmer's markets are a great way to celebrate the utter coolness of this beach community out of the 60's. On top of great people-watching, OB has fantastic restaurants, yet everything is casual, as you'd expect for a beach town (the most dressing up you'll have to do is to put on some kind of footwear). When we saw this beautiful oceanfront condo for sale in the heart of our favorite community, we just couldn't resist.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We think you'll fall in love with our place as much as we have. Many oceanfront places have a long stretch of grass, pavement, or sand between you and the ocean. In contrast, this place is as close to the water as you can get--you are literally right on top of it. That gives this condo a magical feel of floating on the sea. Sitting on the North-facing couch, it's not hard to imagine you're on a boat, drifting on the ocean. Looking to the south, you see the beautiful bluffs of sunset cliffs, with waves crashing against the shore. Surfers are a regular sight from the living room and bedroom, as are pelicans. We have seen whales and dolphins (though more rare), as well as harbor seals.
