About Sarah Groves

Hi! We're so glad you're considering our home for your next vacation get-away! We are transplants to San Diego from the Midwest. We moved here in 2004 with the military and decided to stay put. We absolutely love our city and little OB neighborhood. We know you will too!

Sarah Groves purchased this house in 2013

Why Sarah Groves chose Ocean Beach

You will enjoy the very cool beach vibe as soon as you step foot in our unique beach home! It is clean, comfy and close to everything! The owners stock the house with beach toys, boogie boards, beach chairs, towels, and even a beach cart and wagon to transport your things the short walk to the beach. Combine the San Diego weather with the beach and an eclectic neighborhood for an unforgettable vacation getaway! It's proximity to the airport and all San Diego's greatest attractions make it a very convenient spot to stay.

What makes this house unique

Our sun-filled 'California room' is an amazing spot to lounge and chat, drink wine, read a book, take a NAP, or turn into an enclosed playroom for kids. Open its door to a beautiful back yard dining area under the enormous canopy of a 1938 Reed avocado tree. The home boasts an open circle floor plan with a dining nook, fully-stocked gourmet kitchen, bedrooms with private reading nooks/office space in each, and a Wi-fi/cable package to keep you connected if you so choose. Our inviting, well-kept home makes everything about your visit comfortable and stress-free. You can even custom-order food to be waiting for you when you arrive! These owners go above and beyond to make sure your every need is met!

Great spot

  • 4 of 5

The avocado house is a great little spot. It's a short trip from the airport and the beach. This place was a great home base for us as we explored much of the area during the day. Thanks again for hosting.

Great property

  • 5 of 5

Great location away from beach activity but close enough to walk. Well maintained, well organized and well furnished home, perfect for our family of 5. The private driveway is a must have in the area. The owners provided excellent communication which made for a great stay in Ocean Beach.

Loved our stay at the avocado house!

  • 5 of 5

The avocado house is a quaint place full of character. It is a very efficient use of space. There were four of us and it didn't feel crowded at all. Highlights were the sunroom and the short walk to plenty of restaurants, breweries, and coffee shops, as well as a co-op and the beach.

Ocean Beach Character and Convenience!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five just spent a wonderful week at the Avocado House. It is a perfect retreat close to everything. I'll admit that hearing the airplanes overhead the first day concerned me, but by the next day, we hardly noticed. We had so much fun at this beach and the surrounding area, we didn't go anywhere else. Ocean Beach has perfect waves, wonderful restaurants and a chill atmosphere that grows on you. People are very friendly and the location to the best of San Diego is primo! As for the house, it's adorable and well equipped. We were especially impressed with the kitchen and patio areas. If you want to stay in a beach house and beach town with character, this is the rental for you!

Comfortable and charming

  • 4 of 5

We had a great experience at the avocado house which didn't have avocados this time of year. It's in the best location for the typical San Diego excursions. The kid room has skylights which provided great lighting during the day but also early in the morning. Kids were up before the birds every morning. I loved the sunroom, early mornings meant mama time in the sunroom with coffee and a book. Great trip and looking forward to returning.
