Our one bedroom, one bath cottage offers a fun vacation experience in an awesome bohemian beach neighborhood. No detail has been overlooked - from the fully equipped kitchen to the smart use of space, Waypoint Cottage is set up for comfort and convenience. It's the perfect 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!
This is one of the first beach houses to be built in Ocean Beach in the early 1900s - folks have been coming here for their San Diego beach escapes for more than 100 years! (But don't worry, the cottage was completely renovated in 2007!)
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.
Ocean Beach and Mission Beach are on the flight path from San Diego International Airport. There is a curfew (limited planes after 10 PM and no planes after 11:30 PM), but planes do start in the morning at 6:30 AM. Sound level is similar to a big city bus going by. If you are a light sleeper and really want to sleep in until 11 AM, Ocean Beach and Mission Beach may not be the best neighborhoods to rent in! ...moreless

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!
Why the Owner Chose Ocean Beach: Ocean Beach will always be my favorite San Diego neighborhood - its a friendly, residential beach town with just the right balance between visiting vacationers and local year-round residents. We bought Waypoint Cottage because it had a great vibe and friendly neighbors. Vacationers have been coming here for more than 100 years and while it looks a lot different inside than it did in 1913, I think the experience of staying here is very similar! Its a cozy little cottage that seems surprisingly spacious, yet is stocked with everything you could possibly need for a San Diego getaway - from a fully equipped kitchen and a TV/DVD player in each room, to beach equipment and board games!
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.)
