About the property

San Diego is a world-class vacation destination with endless offerings for entertainment, dining, and adventure. Be transported to a true beach haven where you can hear the waves crashing on the soft white sand and smell the fresh ocean breezes right from your beach home. Located only one block from the beach in San Diego's most original beach town, Ocean Beach is known for its laid-back lifestyle and artistic influence. This isn't just a neighborhood, it's a community and the locals pride themselves on 'no bad days in OB'.

This is the perfect home to enjoy some quality time with your friends and family, including your four-legged family members! Your dog will love being only one block from the leash-free dog-friendly beach and you will love being only a block from the people-only beach. If you're looking for a little action on the water, you can enjoy surfing, boogey boarding, swimming, body surfing, and volleyball. In the evening, roast marshmallows by a beach bonfire as you watch the bright orange sun disappear beyond the horizon with the sound of another beach-goer's guitar hanging in the air.

San Diego is an all seasons destination - there's no bad time to visit this amazing city! In the spring and fall watch whales migrate just beyond the end of the local OB Pier, or perhaps take one of the kayak tours and have a once in a lifetime experience up close with these great creatures. Flip flops and sunglasses are the dress code in this laid-back beach town. You can easily explore the distinct neighborhoods from Ocean Beach to Mission Beach and on to Pacific Beach by jumping on one of the available beach cruisers and hopping from a quaint waterfront café to a beachfront bar offering the best fish tacos in San Diego. You will be surrounded by the sound of friendly sea birds as you dine and stroll along the Ocean Beach Pier, one of the longest piers on the west coast. Do you enjoy feasting on a freshly made Spinach and Feta Crepes and delicious homemade sweets? Don't miss San Diego’s largest Farmers Market once a week right here in Ocean Beach!

This spacious 2 bedroom beach home sleeps 6 people comfortably. It has been completely renovated with a stainless steel kitchen, hardwood flooring, and a travertine tile bathroom. It's fully furnished with everything that has your complete comfort in mind. You bring nothing but your sandals and a good book!

Relax in the large backyard while you sit around the firepit roasting marshmallows and watching the Sea World fireworks that fill the sky with rainbow showers at dusk every evening in the summer. The yard backs up to the bike path which leads right to the beach where you can ride along the beautiful marsh area and cross over to the Mission Beach boardwalk.

To make your four-legged family member feel as welcome as you do, this home also offers dog beds and dog bowls. If you'd like a night out on the town, free dog sitting may be available by pre-arrangement along with a friendly pat.

It's all here within a stroll of your Beach home. Whether your palate wants fresh shucked oysters and a tall beer at South Beach Bar and Grill or a 3 course elegant meal paired with a great local Californian wine at 3rd Corner Wine Bar. You can then dance the night away or watch a local band at nearby Newport Avenue where something is always happening.

Want to go beyond this happy lazy town of Ocean Beach? OB is centrally located and is about 10 minutes driving distance to all major attractions including Sea World, Balboa Park, the San Diego Zoo, Historic Old Town San Diego, and the downtown Gaslamp District. If skipping over the border to Mexico is your fancy, bring your passport and in 20 minutes you can be enjoying a whole new world.

Whatever you want you will find right here at your beach front home.

Had fun!

  • 4 of 5

A cute little beach bungalow in a cute little hippie beach town! Best part was being able to bring our dogs and being so very close to dog beach and Robb Park. Many tail wags and doggie smiles all week!

excellent beach house!

  • 5 of 5

This was our family's first trip to San Diego and staying at Amy's house was the perfect choice for our week there. The house was super comfortable and had everything we needed--including a shopping bag, beach towels, and good kitchen stuff. The best part was the shed with beach goodies in it, including a buggy for taking chairs, towels, sand toys, and boogie boards to the beach. We just had to roll it down the paved path outside the back gate a short stroll to the ocean beach, but the beach accessing the river inlet was literally just across the path. We felt safe there with the keyless entry, too. Our kids loved the bunk beds and the nice rainy shower with a tankless water heater.

We also found that Ocean Beach is a fantastic central location. We easily navigated north to La Jolla and south to Coronado Island. Sea World is super duper close and even though it is pretty packed and congested in the area we found that driving around was never a headache. We explored other beaches but the one just out the back door turned out to be a fun place to spend many afternoons and sunsets.

About the owner--Amy is great! We found a welcome tray waiting for us when we got there with snacks for the kids and wine for us. When the bathroom light bulbs burned out she quickly gave us a replacement. And most incredibly, when our daughter left her WALLET with $100+ inside (and other silly things) inside a dresser drawer, Amy was kind enough to mail us a package with her things inside. She really tried to provide everything in the house, including a binder on where to eat, etc., but we communicated via text while we were there, too, very easily.

Overall we had an amazing vacation. Thank you, Amy!

Super!

  • 5 of 5

Last december we spent a week in this lovely place. Despite the weather was not as a such you expect to be in San Diego (rainy and cold) we enjoyed every single moment.

The house is very well stocked and spacious enough for 4 (2 adults and kids) . The garden ends on a walking pad going into a large (dog) beach where we walked every morning.

The neighborood is nice and friendly, layed back, a bit hippy. We loved it! Groceries can be done nearby. Few steps away is a very good restaurant and wine bar. We definitely recommend this place and want to come back again.

We had such a great experience! Amy thinks of everything and is so welcoming! She checked in on our fur baby while we went to the zoo with kiddos! Access to the dog beach was great also! Lots of walks and quality family time! Much needed! We already have our next stay booked for mid-summer!
