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

  • 3 of 5

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.

Cute litle home

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for us. It was cozy and my wife said it may her feel like she was in Hawaii! It was quiet and relaxing. The home had a lot of helpful little things like a small ice chest and a beach umbrella. Nice little charcoal grill in the beautiful back yard. It was a nice walk to the beach. The owners were very responsive and friendly. Highly recommend and we plan on going back to stay again in the future!

Live Like an Ocean Beach Local

  • 5 of 5

This classic beach cottage really gives you the true feeling of being a part of one of the coolest little beach communities I have ever been to. The neighbors are all extremely nice and the landlord was an excellent communicator throughout the entire trip with plenty of suggestions for entertainment options when I asked.. The house was cozy as can be with an outdoor shower and a relaxing deck that we spent most of our mornings on after jumping in the ocean at the secluded beach at the end of the block, less than ¼ mile away. Sunset Cliffs Natural Park begins two blocks away where we found a seemingly endless number of trails to choose from as well as plenty of beautiful beaches and cliffs to enjoy.

We spent a lot of time checking out the locally owned shops, restaurants, and bars. These businesses are the heart of this unique beach town and there is no shortage of fun to be had. Although we never really felt a need to leave the neighborhood, this location is 10 minutes from most San Diego attractions. Whether you want to go downtown to the Gas Lamp District, Sea World, or the many tourist filled beaches to the north, it’s never a far drive. I’m looking forward to booking this trip again, living in Vegas makes me miss the beach life, however, all I have to do is check in here and I’m instantly feeling like an Ocean Beach local all over again.

My favorite places included:

BBQ House

Pizza Port

Nico's Mexican Food

Cotija's (Try the fish tacos)

South Beach (Taco Tuesday is awesome here)

Cafe Bella

Spend some time in this town and I know you will find some personal favorites of your own. :)
