This comfortable beach condo has been completely renovated (and dog proofed) with stainless steel kitchen, Italian-tile floors, marbleized bathroom, and patio. Go out the back gate onto dog beach for an off-leash stroll with your pooch (all breeds) 24/7.
Enjoy the Snowy Egrets, pelicans, ducks, and sandpipers in the estuary; meander along the bike path for other birdwatching or use the one bike; a two-minute walk West along the bike path to the public (no-dog) beach and surfing, boogie boarding (four on site), or just watch the surf crash on the rocks. Walk two minutes East to the skate-board park and wild-life viewing.
The main shopping area of 'OB' (Ocean Beach) is within walking distance, including antique row. So is fishing off the OB pier or surfing alongside it. Restaurants range from the quick-and-cheap to on-the-waterfront-moderately-pricey. There are many nightspots. You will not want to miss this last-of-the-original beach town atmosphere complete with street fair every Wednesday.
Ocean Beach is centrally located. It is a ten-minute drive to Mission Valley shopping malls, Sea World, Balboa Park, Old Town, Downtown San Diego, Petco Park, Qualcomm Stadium, and the main airport. It is 20 minutes to the Tiajuana border, Wild Animal Park, and LegoLand.

Hi. I'm a retired lawyer. My hobbies are playing duplicate bridge and watching football...not at the same time! I completely renovated this unit, inside and out, a few years ago. It was a true labor of love so it is near to my heart. I try to maintain it in top condition. It's near to most places you'd want to visit in San Diego and borders the beach. The Wild Animal Park and the Tiajuana border are about 20-30 minutes away. Naval bases are 10-12 minutes. It's about a mile off Interstate 8 that connects with the other freeways. I love Ocean Beach. It's one of the original So. California beach towns.
Sharron purchased this Condo in 1997
Why Sharron chose Ocean Beach
There's just no place like Ocean Beach in my eyes. I love it here. It's a very relaxed natural atmosphere; no 'artificial environment' like you find in some other communities. I walked my dogs on Dog Beach every Friday afternoon for 25 years. Finally, I knew I had to make it permanent. Ocean Beach as a community is very dog-friendly. There are even some outdoor dining establishments that allow your dog to lie at your feet while you dine. And there are some dog-centric events such as the annual 'wiener-dog' races on Dog Beach. There's a Farmer's Market every Wednesday afternoon and lots of community events such as kite-flying in March, Christmas parade, beach-blanket bingo,and sand castles after Thanksgiving, etc..

Dog Beach Freindly
Very nice, better than expected. Highly recommend due several variables....kitchen was well outfitted, clean and everything worked. Living/sleeping spaces were clean and fresh. Door locks worked as advertised, WI-FI and cable TV were in good condition, worked well. Bathroom was clean and all facilities worked well. Patio and porch area were exceptional!!! Walk to beach was literally out the back door. Parking was very good. Can't say enough good things about the property, host or amenities.
Exactly as described, perfect for the pooch!
Exactly as pictured/described, and perfect for us and our dog -- beautiful enclosed backyard, steps to the beach, large dog bed in the living area... Unit was clean, well equipped, and host Sharron, who met us upon arrival to give us a tour, was friendly and helpful. We found location to be extremely convenient; easy drive to grocery store, downtown, etc., plus loved being able to walk to local shops and restaurants. Highly recommend!
Exactly what we needed!
Sharon is the best! My husband and I, along with our two pups spent 6 fab days being beach bums and hanging out. The backyard is peaceful and cool, there is plenty of space inside, and covered parking! The location is within walking distance (or a quick drive) to lots of yummy places to eat, and dog beach is right out the back gate. It was absolutely perfect for us!
This is a perfect get away for our family
My husband, myself,and our two labs spent a long weekend at dog beach in Sharon's beautiful home! We parked our car in the carport when we got there, and didn't need it again until we drove home. Everything you need or want is walking distance. Dog beach is just outside the back gate. We were able to bathe our girls in the backyard each time we returned from the beach! Sharon even brought down a towel to help dry them. We didn't want to spend too much time away from our little home away from home, because the garden in the backyard is beautiful! We watched the most beautiful hummingbirds flit around, listened to the water fountain and enjoyed the incredible flowers and vines, while we shared a bottle of wine. We are already talking about our next trip!
Great place for your family and pets
We have stayed at a lot of places in OB and this was by far the best one! The location was perfect for the beach and everything OB has to offer. Sharron was so accommodating and had everything we needed during our stay. I highly recommend staying here, it is perfect for your family and for your pets!!
Love it! Second time staying here with my 2 dogs. I will definitely be booking again. Location is incredible, access to the dog beach is in the back yard, restaurant for breakfast is walking distance and also pet friendly. I take my dogs to the dog beach all the time, but this place is the most cozy and convienant of all !
Other Activities: boating, wildlife viewing, shopping, kayaking, mini golf, racquetball
