Ocean Beach Cottage
This was the second time staying at the cottage. We loved the garden patio and privacy this little cottage. It is a block from the river walk and a short walk into town. The town has many nice restaurants and a nice wine bar. We’ll definitely be back.
Overall, a nice experience. A couple things that prevented a 5 star review- I rented this property due to it seeming to be very dog friendly and safe with an enclosed yard. While the yard is beautiful, be aware that 3 units share the yard and the other units may not be as careful about keeping all the gates/doors shut. So even though there is an enclosed yard, I still didn't feel safe just letting my dogs out to enjoy the yard which was kind of the whole point of me renting this place. Also, the other tenants often left the doors to their units open which my dogs mistook as an open invitation to go in and explore. I was stressed out having to go around chasing my dogs out of their units, but there is no way to separate the units. I don't fault them for leaving their doors open as we all want to enjoy the beautiful San Diego weather, but just know this property isn't *quite* as dog friendly as I would have hoped. An easy solution would be to provide each unit with screen doors or even half doors that open up top only (I noticed the back most unit did actually have a door like this). That way still allowing each tenant to enjoy the weather while providing a barrier for curious pups.
Another issue that I hope gets addressed soon is the plumbing in the unit. I think it's just a result from it being older construction, but the toilet began to leak around the base on our last day there and when we flushed the toilet, sewage water backed up into the shower. Obviously, if it wasn't the day of our check out, we would've had to be moved to another property as this is unacceptable.
If those two issues can be addressed, this would easily be a 5 star property. The best part about it is probably the location- one block off the ocean and easily walkable to restaurants, etc.
Great little place
Great spot a few blocks away from the pier, beach, and dog beach. Check out the farmers market on Wednesday nights. Definitely a relaxing getaway.
Perfect location and more than we needed
This property was perfect for our 5-day trip to San Diego. This precious bungalow was situated in its own garden oasis and was just steps from the most amazing sunset ocean cliff views. Every amenity was met with abundance, and we enjoyed all of it. Relaxing hot tub, cruisers and beach gear, and everything inside that you’d expect at a hotel, and then some. This neighborhood is centrally located and walkable to OB hot spots. We will definitely be back!
The property is clean, comfortable, and very peaceful. The garden around the property is beautiful and well cared for. It is located in a nice neighborhood and is walkable to beaches, restaurants, shops, bars. The property management was amazing. I will be back.
Cute cottage in a nice, secure compound.
Overall it was a great visit. We enjoyed the convenience of the rental as it was close to local restaurants and the ocean. The cottage was very nice and obviously well kept. We had a bit of an issue with the heater in the living room (or maybe I just didn't get how it worked). The heater in the bedroom was nice and with the door opened to the living room, warmed up things nicely. The hot tub was great! A perfect respite after a long day at SeaWorld and then another at the zoo. The only real issue for us was the coffee maker, it had obviously seen better days and though I tried to clean the burner plate, it was not to be and is in need of replacement. All in all, I would stay here again!
Thank you again for staying with us and thank you for the feedback.. we have since switched out the coffee maker per your suggestion...
Minutes away from San Diego Zoo, Seaworld, Downtown San Diego, Balboa Park, The Gaslamp District, Petco Park, Qualcomm Stadium and lots of beaches.
