About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

Lovely Beach Side Cottage

Enjoy the panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean from the shared yard and we have free private off street parking. Also - 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.

Beautiful sunsets!

Fabulous stay in Ocean Beach. The cottage suited all our needs. Next time though, I think we will relax and enjoy the cottage a little more.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Sunset cliffs is a great location to enjoy the ocean and explore the San Diego area. The villa is nicely remodeled, clean and the perfect size for a couple. The deck overlooking the ocean was our favorite place to sit and watch the crashing waves below, the whales, dolphins, birds and boats in the distance and the beautiful sunsets in the evening. The location was very convenient to various points of interest including Point Loma, the USS Midway, Balboa Park, Coronado Island and many great restaurants. We had a great time and would stay here again.

Great location! Great accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent two weeks at this cottage in wonderful Ocean Beach. We loved the location, only a 10-15 minute stroll to the main retail area where most of the shops and restaurants are located. The ocean views from the common patio area were fantastic. The place was clean and well-maintained. We plan to return to OB next year and will definitely check to see if this cottage is available.

Cottage on Sunset Cliffs

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a wonderful first visit to San Diego. We were so pleased when we arrived at the cottage on Pescadaro Drive. It was very clean, had all amenities we needed, loved the beautiful common area. So convenient for walking and busses! Couldn't ask for a more comfortable, clean home away from home. We will definitely be back next year!!!!
