We overlooked the fact that this place doesn't have central heat (it has a gas fireplace in the living room and space heaters in the bedroom) but otherwise everything was great. Clean and cozy.

Older but clean and well located.

  • 4 of 5

The Bermuda House was perfect for our family. We are a family of three with a small dog. We found the property easy to locate and access. Once inside we found it was clean and basics were provided.

It is an older property with older appliances and mismatched decor so do not expect the Hyatt! 😊?. There is a very old gas stove which for some may be quaint, but for me was intimidating to cook on. A gas fireplace heats the small living room and the bedrooms have space heaters. Cable and wi fi were provided.

We could walk to Sunset Cliffs for some great sunset pictures, to Sunny’s for fish tacos, Little Lion for breakfast and there was a pizza place there too - though we didn’t eat there. Within a tiny drive or a longer walk is OB pier and a lot of eateries. A tiny bit further is dog beach where our pup had a fabulous time. Downtown San Diego is less than 15 minutes away. Seaworld is about 8. So it’s located well.

Why didn’t we rate it a 5? Simply because it is an older property - it’s not a luxurious home, like some could expect. Bottom line for us is yes, we would stay there againI️t was comfortable. We didn’t feel like we had to worry about knocking over a glass vase or tracking sand in the homeI️t did not have a “pet” smell like many hotels that allow pets - very important to us!! Everything was kid and pet friendly and easy to clean up. To stress, it’s an older property but clean, comfortable and priced right!

We loved staying here, house size and set up worked well for our family. Easy and quick communication responses from owner! We'd book it again. The only downside we found: the house and property would benefit from some renovation projects!

Great way to see San Diego!

  • 5 of 5

This little cottage was perfectly located! A short ride into San Diego, and within walking distance to Sunset Cliff Beach (a favorite stroll in the am and of course at sunset) Felt like a "local" at the farmers market in Ocean Beach City, had a delicious breakfast across the street from the OB peer/surfers (who can beat that view!) Nicole was so helpful and the accommodations were very comfortable. You need to drive for a minute to get to a sandy, sit down/swim, haul your stuff to the beach and parking by the beach is squishy-so get an early start!! So grateful we had a parking spot in front of the house and we're able to enjoy the quiet neighborhood and beautiful sights! Thanks!

Very nice & private property. Owner very accommodating.

  • 4 of 5

Good owner communication. Easy access. Nice property. Only constructive criticism - place could use a thorough cleaning instead of just frequent straighten/freshen ups. I would still recommend and/or return.

About Nicole van Dobben

I am from Arizona and have lived in San Diego for 25 years. My husband is a San Diego native. I love the small town setting and natural beauty of the Sunset Cliffs area.

Nicole van Dobben purchased this house in 2000

Why Nicole van Dobben chose Ocean Beach

We bought the house because it is on our favorite street. Located near Sunset Cliffs park away from busy downtown OB but close enough to walk everywhere. We love the little local beach at the end of the street.

What makes this house unique

The house is kid and pet friendly, all one level with an in door out door layout, wonderful neighbors and a safe clean neighborhood
