Recently upgraded,  Blue Heron Cottages offers our guests the ultimate in turn key vacationing. Here you will find all you need for your stay of 3 days or 3 weeks. Each of our 6 dog friendly cottages sleeps up to 4 adults comfortable.  You will find a queen size bed in the separate bedroom, and, in the living room, a sectional sofa that converts to a VERY comfortable full queen bed. The two areas share the jack-and-jill bathroom which can be accessed from either the living room or the bedroom.  Each cottage opens on to a lovely, large and fenced-in courtyard. Amenities include a fully equipped, chef inspiring, kitchen. The bedroom and living each have large flat screen Smart TV's, with entertainment Apps such as Netflix and Amazon Prime, and HD cable. The living room also has a BluRay/DVD player, and free wireless internet. All linens are provided, as well as 4 sets of towels, including beach towels. We offer complimentary beach cruiser bikes, boogie and surf boards, sand toys and small coolers for your use. 
Enjoy the large shared courtyard under the gazebo listening to the wild local parrots as they go about their day.   Barbecue with friends and family, toss the ball for your pup, or just relax and soak up the sun. The gazebo is the perfect spot to gather and enjoy the evening sea breeze or morning coffee. Catch some rays on the lounge chairs, or just hand out in the patio lounge area.
We are located close to all things San Diego in the greatest little neighborhood: Ocean Beach.  This area has a wonderful community feeling, very peaceful and eclectic.  A variety of restaurants, boutiques and antique shops are only 4 blocks away on Newport Ave. Don't miss your opportunity to purchase the freshest, and most delicious locally grown produce, art, flowers, and more every Wednesday at OB's Farmers Market on Newport Avenue. Where we are located in Ocean Beach, , is NOT a vey touristy area, but you are very close to all the main  San Diego tourist attractions. Most San Diego attractions are within 20-30 minutes by car. We are located across the bay a few minutes away from Sea World, 20 minutes away from the San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park, Petco Park (home of the Padres), the Gas Lamp District as well as the San Deigo Airport. Disneyland is only about 2 hours away, and Legoland is about 1 hour. Each cottage comes with an off street parking spot suitable for all autos. There is also a bus stop is right across the street from the cottages, and that should hook you up with transportation around SD if necessary. However, you can easily walk or bike all over Ocean Beach...always safe, and relaxing.   
There is a beautiful little beach cove perfect for playing and relaxing just a block and a half away. The main beach is just at the end of Newport Ave, an easy bike ride, minutes away. 
     If you have a dog, Ocean Beach and Blue Heron Cottages are very dog friendly!  Dog Beach is only about one half mile away, an easy walk or a quick ride.  
  Please check out our location using the location tab on this site (we are on the corner of Cable Street and Santa Cruz Avenue in San Diego, CA 92107)  You will get a an idea as to how San Deigo is laid out and where we are located in relation to other attractions and beaches. 

          I was born and raised in San Deigo and if you have questions about the area I would be happy to tell you what I can.  Our onsite manager is also a San Deigo local and can be of assistance if you need any support while in SD.  Enjoy all that San Diego has to offer then come back and relax in your home away from home at Blue Heron Cottages.

Scenic Balboa Park, home of the San Diego Zoo, is also where you will find various museums that you and your family might be interested in.The Aerospace Museum, Science Museum, Museum of Man, and the Museum of Natural History are all within walking distance of each other. There are also great dinning options in Balboa Park.

Old Town, where San Diego first laid down her roots, is also a fun, historical way to spend your day, and you are only 15 mins away.

If you are coming for beach fun, you have come to the right place. Ocean Beach has surf lessons, Point Loma (right around the corner) is where the whale watching boats set sail, and Deep Sea Fishing is a very short drive from the cottages.

If you are looking for more kid friendly fun, we are only 45 mins from the San Diego Wild Animal Park and Legoland USA. You could even manage a day trip to Disneyland if you wanted, we are only 1.5 hours away.
