About the property

No expense spared in this beautifly remodeled 1918 beach cottage, 2 car parking

You will be amazed by this charming home. Really nothing like it in Ocean Beach. It features a porch and office along with 2 bedrooms and 2 full baths. 3 large TV's with full Direct TV through the entire home. Also has new top of the line Kenmore Appliances and a new whirlpool washer and dryer. All furniture and bedding is top of the line from places like Pottery Barn and Macy's. The deck in back is 16 foot and reaches out to a large yard which has 2 parking spaces in back. We also have AC and Heating throughout the home.

About Todd Schak

I have other properties in Mission Beach and La Jolla so have been a vacation owner for a number of years. All my homes are very successful rentals and I understand the needs of clients.

Todd Schak purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Todd Schak chose Ocean Beach

I fell in love with this location and decided to give a go at updating this home. It has taken over 1 year however I believe the product stands for itself.

What makes this cottage unique

Never need a car to stay at this home. Everything you want and need to do is walking distance. Really only possible in this location for San Diego.

Great family beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

We were 3 sister/grandmothers with kids and grandkids. This house was absolutely perfect. It had all modern amenities and everything we needed. The renovation and remodel of this house was beyond expectations. Really showed pride of ownership. There was a problem with a broken water pipe in the front yard. Not anyone's fault. The owner (Todd) arrived and the problem was resolved as soon as possible.

It's a great location and I would stay there again without hesitation. If you're looking for a stand alone house with parking and a great yard, front and back, this is the one.

Hope you enjoy this house as much as we did.

Everything we could have hoped for!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the remodeled beach cottage! Plenty of room for our large family with extra spaces to get away from the group. Everything was sparkling clean and new. Fully equipped kitchen with everything we needed. Everything was provided: towels, dish soap, dishwasher detergent, garbage bags, laundry detergent and dryer sheets, shampoo, conditioner, body wash. We just had to get the food! Plenty of space in the new beadboard cabinets and large french door refrigerator. Loved the grill and lovely back deck with new wicker furniture. All the beach toys: beach towels, 4 boogie boards, sand toys, beach chairs and umbrellas with a wagon to carry them all the short distance to the beautiful beach. An outdoor shower to remove sand before going in the house on those beautiful hardwood floors. Backyard beanbag game, 2 bikes and 2 longboard skateboards we didn't get a chance to use. Parking was fantastic: we were able to park our huge Yukon XL AND fit 3 other small cars. Lots of people in OB on 4th of July, but it quieted down quickly after the fireworks on the beach. It was a great place, in a great location. Just as it is pictured. We loved every minute of staying there and would definitely go again.

Great Location, Layout, and Amenities

  • 5 of 5

My family (which included my wife and I, our 2 children (ages 4 and 8), and my parents recently stayed at this property and couldn't have been happier with our experience there. The location, which was within easy walking distance of the beach and downtown Ocean Beach, was perfect. The property was well stocked with kitchen items (cookware, dishes, etc.) and included beach toys, beach chairs, skateboards, and 2 adult cruising bikes that our family got a lot of use out of during our trip. The HVAC is controlled remotely by the property manager, but we never found the temperature inside the house anything but comfortable. The property is on the flight path for the San Diego airport, but nearly all of Ocean Beach is and the noise from the planes was never loud enough to bother us during our stay. We would definitely recommend this property to others and would stay here again if we return to Ocean Beach in the near future.

Beautiful Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 5 days and enjoyed every minute. The place was a short walk to the beach and all the shops. We parked our vehicles at the house and never had to drive. The house was clean and had every amenities you needed. Will definitely stay again. We had a blast!! Thank you for sharing your place with us.
