Ocean Beach house description

** We do NOT require Saturday - Saturday stays! **
** Check in or out any day of the week you like! **

Vacation in our charming home! Location is everything. Our home is steps to the beach and two blocks from the main street in Ocean Beach. Sun, surf, bike ride, and relax. This is the best that San Diego has to offer.

Only two blocks away, the tide-pools will enthrall adults and children alike. Take long walks along the romantic beach where the sunset disappears into the Pacific Ocean each evening. In the spring and fall, whales migrate just beyond the end of the local OB Pier.

We provide everything. The home is fully furnished and includes all linens. You benefit from our new remodel. The home has two master bedrooms each with queen-size beds. The home is very comfortable for four adults although it will sleep six because of a convertible bed in the living room. There is a full kitchen and we include cookware and dishes, as you would expect.

RESERVED PARKING IS ON-SITE. This is a big deal at the beach.

This is your vacation, so relax! Come back home with clean laundry -- our unit has a washer/dryer inside! TV, stereo, broadband Internet access, DVD and VHS player, and many more amenities. But take our advice, if you came all the way to San Diego, don’t stay inside. There are activities for all ages within easy walking distance.

Bring the entire family! You pet is welcome if it is well behaved. There is a large front yard, and world famous Dog Beach is only a short walk.

Activities within walking distance: Hiking, Biking, Tennis, Basketball, Fishing, Wildlife Viewing, Shopping, Restaurants, Sightseeing, Swimming, Snorkeling/Diving, Surfing.

Activities within a few mile drive: Golf, Amusement Parks, Museums, Boating, Sailing, World Famous San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park, Gas Lamp District, Padres Baseball, Old Town.

Payment Options: Personal/ Business check, Cashier's check, Money Order, or Visa/MasterCard. A 10.5% city room tax will be applied to the rental fees. A $500 deposit will be refunded shortly after departure once the key is returned and the premises are left in an acceptable condition.

No cleaning fees or any other hidden charges! A $500 deposit and a return of the rental agreement is required upon booking. The balance of payment is due one month before arrival. Late payments will be assessed a surcharge of $100. For cancellation earlier than one calendar month before your arrival, 50% of the deposit will be refunded. All other cancellations will result in forfeiture of the entire deposit. We ask that you not smoke indoors.

Property has six cottages, consisting of two front units with a front yard, and four back units with a small courtyard. Additional charge for front unit.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2006

              About the owner: Hi! I'm Tobi (from Los Angeles) and my husband is Andy (from Oklahoma). We met once we were both living in San Diego and love it here! The cottages are our family's investment for our 5-year old son Micah and our 3-year old son Jake. We have made many upgrades since we bought them. We love to see our guests return again and again, and have had the pleasure of accommodating our guests for such special occasions as graduations, weddings, and births.

              Why the Owner Chose Ocean Beach:
              Ocean Beach has a special significance for us because our first date was at the famous 'Hodad's' in Ocean Beach. We now live nearby and our kids love going to OB to play in the sand, come for the 'OB Farmer's Market' each Wednesday, or take a walk with the stroller down Newport Ave. to window shop. We find it to be one of the quieter beach areas (less traffic and fewer tourists than Mission Beach) and we love that 'small-beach-feel'.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              We love the location. With two small children, having to drive someplace or walk far would be tough. But when we stay at our cottage, we can walk to the beach, to shopping, to dinner, or even the grocery store. We also love the beds -- they are so comfortable that we bought the same ones for our home that we live in!
