About Melissa Stokes

We are born and raised in San Diego and now we are living our dream owning a piece of heaven in our favorite beach town called Ocean Beach.

Melissa Stokes purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Melissa Stokes chose Ocean Beach

Out of all the beach communities in San Diego, Ocean Beach is our absolute favorite. The restaurants and shops are all so close to the beach and the people in Ocean Beach are just so friendly.

What makes this cottage unique

Ocean Beach offers the only off leash Dog Beach in all of San Diego. Ocean Beach is very unique in itself and has the largest Farmers market weekly right on Newport Avenue.

Lovely beach cottage

  • 4 of 5

Great cottage had everything that's indicated in the description. Lovely place to stay for a couple quiet and private location. Parking space available which was great but the cottage is located just a few blocks from the main streets on Ocean beach where you'll find restaurants and stores that you can easily just walk there. And the cottage is 2 blocks from the beach. Really enjoyed our stay. One thing that would've gave it 5 star is that the TV in the bedroom is not connected to direct tv and if you want to watch it you'll have to bring or rent a DVD. Other than that I highly recommend this lovely, cozy and private cottage. Great romantic getaway.

Location can't be beat!

  • 4 of 5

This home is really in the perfect location to explore ocean beach! Walkable to the beach, shops and restaurants, we didn't need a car the whole time! It is a small place but we spent most of our time outside anyway. Only complaint is that the air conditioning unit works well but every few hours it shuts off because the water is full and needs to be emptied. The owners left helpful instructions on how to do so. Would definitely stay here again!

Great location, close enough to fun, without the noise, had everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

We love Ocean Beach. The cottage was perfect for 2 people. Couldn't believe how quiet it was at night. The planes woke us up lime an alarm clock daily at 6:30, which was fine for us. We loved walking everywhere, sitting at the beach, watching the pelicans and the funny parrots. We rode the bikes to pacific and Mission beach, on the great bike paths. We can't wait to come again!

Good location. Cute and cozy.

  • 4 of 5

The location of the cottage is great! There was a doggie door for our pups which led to a small yard that was very helpful. We traveled with our baby and dogs and Peggy brought us dog towels and blankets, and a pack and play as well. That was a nice touch. The one thing that was disappointing was that all the dishes I grabbed out of the cupboard were dirty. I had to wash everything before it could be used. Overall, it's a nice little cottage. Much better than staying at a hotel!
