Vacation with Your Dog at Dog Beach...Beach Front! World Class Sea-Bird Watching

Sleeps0
Bedrooms 2
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 3 nights

Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1 Bath (Sleeps 6)

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.

About Sharron

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 San Diego County

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..

Great location for you AND your furry friends!

  • 5 of 5

Sharon's condo is great! It has everything you need to make it feel like home while you stay there (everything from a grill to a hair dryer and all the kitchen appliances you might need, etc). And the location could not be better, especially if you have a dog. It's a short walk to Dog Beach as well as to Newport where you'll find great bars and restaurants. Her little back yard is really nice, if you feel like staying in. We did not drive once while we were there so it was nice to have a covered parking spot where we could ditch the car. Checking in and out was easy, and Sharon was great host! Definitely recommend!

This is a perfect get away for our family

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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!!

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

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 !

Backyard beach oasis!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this sweet little condo for five days with our son, daughter-in-law, our grand baby girl and FIVE doggies!!!!! It was quite comfortable and plenty of room for all of us. It has a very nice outdoor area in the rear that backs up to the pathway to dog beach! We spent a lot of time relaxing and had fun walking into town as well for shopping, dining and exploring! The kitchen and bathroom has everything you need while visiting beautiful San Diego! Sharron is gracious and available; she quickly purchased a new BBQ pit for us when we informed her the old one was broken! If you're looking for clean, simple and on the beach...this is it!!!! Enjoy :)

Very nice place in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there with out 2 dogs. The home was comfortable and cozy. The owner had a large dog bed that our older dog appreciated very much. We planned on spending our 3 days at the beach but 3 days of nearly solid fog meant we spent more time at the house then we planned. We enjoyed watching movies and relaxing in the zen garden listening to the fountain.

The beds were comfortable and clean. The bathroom is small but it was clean and everything worked well. We really enjoyed our trip and would stay again.
