Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Justin, Xochi and Ava are the owners and managers of this beautiful Ocean Beach cottage. Justin spent 6 years in the Marine Corps and transitioned from active duty after his second trip to Afghanistan this past year. Xochi is an Army Veteran and served both in Okinawa and here in the states as a Patriot Missile Operator. As a native San Diegan, Xochi grew up experiencing the joys of this great city from a truly local perspective. Justin has been living in San Diego since 2011 and works in real estate development and technology as his day job while Xochi manages the property full time. Ava is 5 years old and serves as the group's CCO or Chief Cuteness Officer, welcoming vacationers as they start their wonderful experience in America's 'Finest City'.

Why the Owner Chose Ocean Beach:
Ocean Beach is both centrally located to many of San Diego's hidden jewels while maintaining a close knit family friendly community feel. It is rich in tradition and history, as one can see by the wild parrots flying overhead or the pier café that was almost completely washed away by a storm swell almost a decade ago. This property offers a lush back patio with a tropical feel, including a small waterfall and very rich aromas that makes relaxing a snap.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
As a duplex my property allows me to live on site and operate a wonderful cottage style 1 bedroom/1 bath which I enjoy as it allows me to meet new people all the time.
