About the Property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

Hear the crashing surf and watch the sun set over the Pacific from the upscale accommodations. Every attention to detail will make your stay memorable.

The all organic Queen bed in the second bedroom is hopefully the most comfortable bed you have ever experienced. A French door opens to your ocean view and magnificent ocean breezes.

Walk to Ocean Beach, a coastal town time has forgotten. It’s one of the few places left in San Diego where the shops are locally owned and managed instead of being owned by big chains.

Fine dining, great breakfast and lunch spots and unique shopping are a short walk away. Small, but enchanting, this 2 bedroom retreat is immaculate with the finest of organic linens and designer amenities.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Tom and Lisa Hoyer the proud owners of the Ocean Front Beach Retreat

Why the Owner Chose Ocean Beach, San Diego, CA, USA:
Our Ocean Front Beach Retreat needs to be seen to be believed. When we first saw it we knew we had to have it in our family. We want to share this amazing setting with others as it is truly one in a million. We searched for property for over a year and when we discovered this beauty we purchased it on the first day.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The setting is specatular. The condo sits on a bluff above the tidepools and ocean below. The sunsets are amazing as well as the sounds of the waves and wild life below. There is an awesome view of the Ocean Beach Pier and you can sit in the patio and watch the surfers in the distance. On may occasions the local dolphins play in front of the condo. The little town of Ocean Beach is only a 2 block stroll away. There you will find many unique shops and restaurants that line the main street.
