About the property

Lovely Beach Side Cottage

New AC/Heating units for 2017

This is a perfect getaway by the sea. Walk to restaurants, shopping or relax. One of four beautiful Ocean Front cottages sharing expansive Pacific Ocean vistas and clean ocean breezes.

Lounge around our cliffside backyard in comfy chairs, snoozing, reading, hot tubbing or just socializing around the gas BBQs. If this particular unit is not available for your personal schedule then please ask about our three others!

This unit and the other cottages have every amenity that you may need including refrigerator, stove, oven, microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker, toaster, blender, dishes, utensils, heating, one parking spot, hair dryer, iron & ironing board, linens, bath towels, beach chairs and beach towels along with cable TV, WiFi internet, BBQ grills, patio and hot tub!

While our neighborhood beach stairs are closed to damage at the moment, there is another set of stairs 1/2 block north of us to a cobblestone beach and a block north of there are stairs to a cement walking path along the water leading to a hidden sandy cove at Santa Cruz ave (with summer lifeguard on weekends) as well as the long expanse of sandy beach starting at the pier in front of the town of Ocean Beach itself.

We are also just steps away from Sunset Cliffs Park with its many hidden beaches and named for its exquisite sunset vistas, this park encompasses 68 acres of bluffs and walking paths high above the wide expanse of the Pacific Ocean. With its rugged coastline and panoramic views, this area is popular with surfers, ocean-gazers, and folks who like to cruise Sunset Cliffs Boulevard, which runs the length of the cliffs. Drive along Sunset Cliffs Boulevard and enjoy breathtaking views and photo opportunities. It also makes a nice bike ride or walk, and it’s a great place to watch birds. You can see migrating California gray whales during the winter months from high on the bluffs.

Ocean beach is a relaxed beach town, encounter a distinctive downtown district just steps from the ocean, enjoy San Diego's finest and largest Farmers Market, experience the original Dog Beach, or stroll on the longest concrete pier on the west coast. We are located across the bay a few minutes by car from the popular Sea World, 5 minutes from the San Diego Airport and 10 minutes from the World Famous San Diego Zoo, Petco Park and the Gas Lamp District.

The property turned out to be just what expected from the advertisement. The pictures show everything just as is is. It is clean, comfortable, quiet, has great oceans views and the owners are very professional and nice to work with. We would highly recommend The Seaview Lookout to anyone!

Lovely comfortable place in a fantastic location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed pretty much everything about this cottage. It's a great area from which to walk. The views from the kitchen window and common area are mesmerizing. The cottage had everything we needed. We got a good cross ventilation going to cool things down in the evening. And it is 450 feet from my newest addition to all-time favorite restaurants, Little Lion.

Our only complaint is that we had to close the windows in the evenings to block the stench from the fire pit that our neighbors "lit up". The place got stuffy pretty quickly, even with the fans blowing away, and we had difficulty sleeping those last two nights.

But overall, we loved staying here!

Owner's Response: We are so happy to hear you've loved our cottage and property at the beach which seems to be quite the common theme with all of our guests :) We apologize if the wind may have carried any smoke your way from the temporary location of our fire pit as we are just in the process of re-designing the whole yard above the crashing waves which will locate any future fires far away from all rentals and ... we have also just installed brand new AC units in all of our cottages for your comfort for when the windows are closed. We are dedicated to constantly improve and upgrade our property for all of our guest's enjoyment and thank you for all the great feedback. -Lorie, Mike & David

Great location with even greater views!

  • 5 of 5

The property manager was great - he allowed for us to drop off our luggage a little early due to arriving earlier than check in. He met us upon arrival and explained how to unlock the key box, etc. He was very friendly and accommodating. The bed was very comfortable and the neighborhood was quiet, with the exception of some construction on the cliffs. This would seem to be an issue but it really only obstructed our view from right outside the back door, although the view wasn't great from that point anyway. Only about 50 feet from our door was the fire pit, hot tub and patio furniture that made for a GREAT Sunset Cliffs viewing area.

I was concerned once we got there about there being no air conditioning, but apparently this is normal in the area. Being from Kentucky, this worried me, but we slept with the window open and had no problem. It kept it relatively cool at night.

The cottage was very clean, the bathroom was very nice and spacious and two robes were provided. The bedroom had a large closet which was also nice.

The TV was nice and had plenty of movie options on demand.

It was only about a 15 minute walk to a bunch of Ocean Beach restaurants and shopping stores and only steps from the Sunset Cliffs.

Overall our stay was great, and if we ever return to OB will we definitely try to stay here again!

Clean and comfortable. A lot of construction going on to shore up the Cliffs, but the view was a-one

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the location and ocean view. The place was neat and clean and David ( the property mgr) was VERY responsive to our needs and questions. We would be happy to return to this property the next time we return to San Diego/Ocean Beach.
