Ocean Beach cottage description

Our one bedroom, one bath cottage offers a complete turnkey beach vacation experience in San Diego's most authentic & laid back beach neighborhood. No detail has been overlooked - from the fully equipped kitchen to the smart use of space, Waypoint Cottage is designed for comfort and convenience. It's the perfect home base for your San Diego vacation - either as a jumping off point for daily adventures around the city, or as a private place to unwind, relax, and renew!

The bedroom and bathroom are located off a main room that includes a seating area with sofa & armchairs, an entertainment center, a dining area, and a full kitchen. The kitchen is equipped with a built-in microwave, full size range & oven & side-by-side fridge, as well as all the dinnerware and cookware needed to prepare even the most ambitious of feasts! Outside areas offer additional space for dining and lounging.

The cottage is set up to accommodate two guests but can accommodate up to four. The drop-leaf dining table expands and there are additional chairs stowed on site. In addition to the queen bed in the bedroom, there is also a pull-out sleeper sofa in the living room that can fit 2 guests. However, we recommend to keep in mind that the bathroom can only be accessed through the bedroom.

The cottage is equipped with ceiling fans and plantation blinds for unusually hot days (with an average high temp of only 76 degrees at the height of summer, air-conditioning is not necessary this close to the beach breezes!) In the winter, when average highs are in the mid 60's, a furnace in the living room and electric fireplace in the bedroom help keep things warm and toasty at night.

We have beach chairs, towels, boogie boards, umbrella & cooler available during the winter on request - they come standard with summer rentals.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2013

              About the owner: We have operated vacation rentals for 8+ years and have been hosting guests in the Ocean Beach area since 2007. We love planning ahead and trying to equip rentals to meet every possible need of our guests. It is great fun to see the different guests who come through - especially those that return! We are so happy when people have a great vacation in our home!

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              This place is just so adorable, and is in a wonderful location halfway between the two main commercial districts of Ocean Beach (and is walking distance to both as well as steps from the beach.)
