About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

This is a Classic Ocean Beach Cottage that is located on a quiet residential street with very easy access to ocean views and the lovely ocean trails that lead to the Pier and Newport St.

A favorite spot with locals to stroll just a few minutes to the end of the Street with their cocktail glass to report on their day as the sun goes down.

Living Room features a Queen size Futon, Flat Screen TV and lots of Rustic Charm.

Attached to the living room is the Dining Room with ample seating for the whole family.

There are 2 bedrooms in the home, the master bedroom has a Queen bed with TV and the second bedroom - that is connected to the Master - as a Jack and Jill bedroom - has 2 twin beds.

The Ocean Beach Tropics has a fully equipped kitchen with washer and dryer onsite, internet, WiFi and Cable TV.

We are pet friendly but it is important to remember that the yard is shared and so your dog may not run free in the yard without supervision at all times.

Tire your pet out with a visit to dog beach just a short drive down the street.


No Smoking is allowed inside any of our properties. You are welcome to smoke in outside areas of the home.

Due to the moderate coastal climate, this house (like most in the area) does not have air conditioning.

This home is located in a quiet neighborhood and is only suitable for quieter groups. Our rental agreement includes a no tolerance policy regarding excessive noise, occupancy and/or parties. Deposit forfeitures and/or evictions are strictly enforced.

For homes that allow pets there are certain rules that always apply. Pets are never to be left alone in the homes unattended. If you plan to spend time away from your pet please find a doggy daycare. You can call our office for recommendations.

Ocean Beach lies in the San Diego International Airport flight path for some departing flights.  No planes can depart after 11:30 pm or before 6:30 am.  

Please make sure you are comfortable with these policies before renting with La Jolla Vacation Rentals.

Beautiful house, great location

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful beach house. For us, it was a great location being just a little off the Newport Avenue strip. Very comfortable for our family of five. Our three kids had a blast and the set-up was perfect for us. We hope to stay here again on our next trip to OB!

Cute, clean, cozy, convenient little cottage!

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect little cottage, close to everything via walking or biking, very clean, well stocked with all the necessities needed, great outside patio, plenty of beach chairs, boogie boards, umbrella etc. a 5 min walk to the beautiful Sunset cliffs, we biked to OB, Mission Beach and even La Jolla. Loved the lush, green yard with the private, gated with keypad lock entry which is shared with 2 other small cottages but each cottage has its own grill and patio/seating area. Nice, big hot tub and nice laundry room as well. We can't wait to be back! Our kids loved it as much as we did!

great place in need of a bit of updating

  • 3 of 5

This place was in a great location, super clean and the bungalow had all you could need, including things for beach time. The grounds were well keep and very lovely. I wish I could say I came back well rested and relaxed but I can't do that because of how uncomfortable the beds were. The queen bed is a futon mattress. There is a reason why we trade in futons for a real bed ASAP. The mattress is totally non-supportive and soft and after one night my less than perfect back was screaming for relief. People with any sort of back trouble need to take this into serious consideration before they spend the money to book this cottage. The next night I tried the single bed which did have a real mattress albeit well used, You could feel a couple of the springs dig in to you as you were sleeping and it had a slight tilt to it that seemed to roll you off of it. I slept next to the wall just for safety's sake. The living room furniture was the same, There was another futon that served as the couch and what looked like a piece of patio furniture with a thin pad on it. There was one "real chair". This is in need of serious updating.

The best part was having the hot tub/spa which took some of the pain away from sleeping on the futon.

I would say to the owner's that a significant amount is paid to rent this cottage. please get a real bed and update the furniture in the living room so that the place feels comfortable as well as looking good. If I could I would actually give this 2.5 stars which I couldn't do so I rounded up to 2.5.

A Private Tropical Oasis I'd Love to Own!

  • 5 of 5

Four of us stayed for five nights at the Ocean Beach Tropics to celebrate a 30th birthday for our son. Oh my - a block down from the cliffs along Sunset Cliffs - so a wonderful treat to begin or end the day. Of all the homes along this residential area, we had the enchanted cottage behind the green gated "compound"! One of three "cottages", we had the largest, 2 bedroom villa, down the cobbled path, in the midst of its own tropical garden. Every morning we opened the front door and window shades to relish the morning coffee among the palm trees, flowers, and birds. Large front patio with gas bbq and plenty of tealights to bring up the ambiance full throttle. Plenty of room inside this quaint, immaculent cottage - all the amenities (except dishwasher) in the kitchen, including brand new gas range and oven. Plenty of kitchenware and storage in the pantry area, which leads to the huge jacuzzi and garage for the lucky renters of this unit! Also, bull size washer/driver is available. Both bedrooms are very comfortable and the second bedroom is an adorable island theme. One bathroom for the four of us really wasn't a problem.We so appreciated that everything was very, very clean. Nice to have cable tv & wifi. One morning, I lifted the shade above the kitchen table and a huge red hibiscus was staring back. Renters in the front gave us some of their leftover food items when they left, other than, we never saw anyone. We'd love to have this as our own vacation retreat - we'd stay here again & recommend in a heartbeat! It's extremely private, set off the street. Well done!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Well located in the heart of Ocean Beach area, close to many, many additional areas to check out. Quiet good sleeping, 2nd bedroom access through main bedroom can be a bit awkward at times. Needed to use heat during our stay and worked well, portable electric heater for 2nd bedroom. No a/c so can't comment about summer comfort. Very adequate kitchen with suitable dishes etc.. Microwave not so much. As for adequate available parking on street that is a bit of a joke. Really appreciated that this unit came with a single space in a nice garage behind the unit available from the alley. Nice walk or bike ride to downtown area, which also was a parking challenge. Many restaurants in the area.
