About M.J. & S.J. Shapiro, owner

Why M.J. & S.J. Shapiro, owner chose Ocean Beach
This cottage is one of the few remaining original cottages in Ocean Beach (circa 1906). It has been in our family since 1970 and we have tried to retain the traditional qualities of a seasonal beach house. This is classic and humble home with new amenities we believe will be both comforting and welcoming.
