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.

About Lisa Hoyer

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

Lisa Hoyer purchased this condo in 2006

Why Lisa Hoyer chose San Diego County

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.

What makes this condo unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lisa and Tom,

Thank you so much for the great beach house! It was a perfect getaway. It was so close to many things...fun things. We had a great time. I loved the beach. You guys have made a very warm and nice home. The view of the beach was beautiful. If we ever come back to San Diego we will stay at the Beach Retreat again!!

Ocean front retreat

  • 5 of 5

We certainly enjoyed our time at the ocean front retreat. The location is outstanding. We spent many an hour simply watching and listening to the waves roll in. As well, the retreat was very clean and well equipped and only about a 10 minute walk to " downtown " Ocean Beach. All of the attractions in the San Diego area that we wished to visit were a short drive from the retreat,which was an added bonus. Also, the description and pictures of the retreat are exactly as presented. The owners of the retreat are very helpful and a pleasure to work with----everything from booking the property to meeting us upon our arrival to returning our damage deposit couldn't have been any better. As I look out the window of my house and see the snow laying on the ground I dream of returning to a warmer location and the ocean front retreat would fit my needs perfectly. Obviously, I would highly recommend the ocean front retreat to any potential renters.

Short Family getaway before the Holidays

  • 5 of 5

We found a place to escape the craziness before the Christmas Holidays! 4 days of warm sunshine, walks along the coast & beach, great food, hours of family card games, sunsets, and fun talks. Our home away from home was very comfortable, quiet, and clean. We would love to return!

Great little condo directly on the ocean

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time in the Ocean Beach area. The condo was clean and well maintained. Everything was well laid out and the instructions were clear and helpful. Beautiful sunset views from the patio, we tried to be there at sunset each day. The parking situation was a little tricky (the garage is small) but the lot across the street was definitely usable. Just follow the instructions to stay out of trouble. We definitely would recommend this condo to anyone wanting a nice place in OB. Thanks!

Owner's Response: We are happy you enjoyed your stay. Yes parking spots are gold at the beach. We are fortunate to offer 2 parking spots even though our garage is a bit small we have the other off street spot open. Please call us again! Lisa

A relaxing holiday at the beach

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this property and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The unit itself is spacious, well maintained, and extremely well stocked with about anything you could possibly need/want for a beach vacation. The beach/surfing decor goes throughout the place and really sets a relaxing mood. I imagine Lisa and Tom had a lot of fun decorating; we sure did exploring it all. There is ample parking both in an outside lot and in a somewhat tight garage. They even have a washer/dryer! By definition, the location is perfect, with the unit less than a dozen steps from the ocean bluffs. Listening to the waves crashing is very soothing as you sit out on their very spacious patio. The location is also great because it is very quiet, while being about a ten minute stroll to all the action that is OB. Coincidentally, I lived a block away from the property forty years ago and I can tell you that (thankfully) little has changed. This is a town of beach cottages, kitschy shops, fun restaurants, the fishing pier for an evening stroll, and the beautiful beach. I should note that Tom met us when we first arrived and made sure we understood everything about the place and made us feel at home. It had been over a decade since we had visited San Diego and have committed to come back more often. When we do, we will definitely try to stay here again!
