It is an eclectic community and great place to live and visit.

                      Why the Owner Chose Ocean Beach:
                      We purchased the cottage from Dot Johnson who built it in 1935 with her husband Mark. They bought the property with war bonds. It's a great little place with a fabulous view and in a quiet residential area just 6 blocks from the Pacific Ocean. From the porch you can see Mission Bay Channel , Mission Beach's roller coaster, and of course each night in the summer you will be treated to a fabulous firework display from SeaWorld.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      Every Wednesday Ocean Beach has a farmers market with fresh fruit and veggies , music, and artisians. When leaving Ocean Beach you are always going against the traffic. It is centrally located and gives you access to some of the prettiest and most interesting sights in San Diego. Seaworld is a 5 minute drive, the San Diego Zoo is about 15 minutes or less. We also have a fun Dog Beach that is leash free 24/7 365 days a week and is worth a visit even without a pooch. Come stay at our cottage and make yourself at home . There are restaurants and grocery stores in all directions. We are close by and able to assist any of our guests with directions or suggestions. Come relax in OB, you won't regret it.
