Better than expected
My husband and I loved this little place! Private and well-appointed. Beachy colors, light and bright. Wagon with chairs and boogie boards were all great quality, we used them a lot, though we're always the oldest in the ocean! Katrina was most helpful and we will definitely be back. A perfect little getaway.
Our visit was perfect. The house was exactly as advertised and any necessary details for parking, trash, laundry, etc was clear and accurate, and there were extra copies of instructions in the house when we arrived for easy reference. Quiet location, so close to the beach, and easy walking distance to so many other OB shops, restaurants, etc. The electric scooters and bicycles in the neighborhood were ideal for zipping around, and so fun, we often just left the car in the garage and used those. Pull out couch fit my two full grown teenage kids comfortably, and the king bed in the bedroom was fantastic. We didn't hear our neighbors at all, and even though the bedroom is above a car garage, we weren't bothered by any noise from use. Airplanes did start early and go all day, but again, it was just as owner advertised, and honestly it wasn't a big deal for us, it didn't affect our visit at all or interfere with sleep. Can't wait to vacation here again.
Great place. Fun location. Host was responsive and had everything well prepared for us.
From Arizona! Enjoyed our stay!
We loved being a short distance to beach! Jet noice was annoying but we got used to it and it stops after 10 pm! Clean and cozy. Katrina was very helpful!
Colorful Get Away!
I had a wonderful time over Memorial Day Weekend at this location. It is a 4 minute walk to the beach and near to wonderful restaurants. The accommodations were very nice, colorful, and comfortable. The bed was very comfortable. I came prepared with ear plugs knowing the air traffic could be loud and had no issue. Had a great time. Hope to come back soon!
Great place to stay in Ocean Beach
We had a pleasant quiet stay, other than the air traffic noise.
Palm trees line the streets of this historical Southern California community, and at 5080-86 Brighton Ave, you are just one block from the largest beach in Ocean Beach and everything this town has to offer.
If shopping is your way to relax, take a walk down Newport Avenue and browse through one unique shop after another offering jewelry, surfboards, shells, beads, boutiques, unusual resale treasures and antique stores. And the majority of merchants are residents, so expect to receive a friendly smile and good old-fashioned service.
A good reason for living in Ocean Beach is its casual, small-town charm with its diagonally parked cars along the main street of Newport Avenue. This centrally located three-block-long shopping district has much to offer—and has no parking meters!
