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.

Little slice of paradise

  • 5 of 5

The star of this show is the generous-sized community patio with attractive tables and seating perched on a cliff overlooking the ocean. Because of that, my only complaint is that I was very reluctant to ever leave "my" cliffside perch and enjoy all that San Diego has to offer! Sometimes a great vacation is more about relaxing in place and "Seaview Lookout" is just the place to do that. My hubby and I greatly enjoyed our stay and the location was great -- just a short walk to all of the funky shops and restaurants on Newport Avenue for those times he was able to coax me away from the patio. (Also note that's where you can find a nice new supermarket, "The Apple Tree"). The exterior of the four-plex is very modest and the units face an uninspired street that is more of an alley than a street. Fortunately during our visit the other guests staying there were very friendly, quiet and courteous. Inside the cottage is completely charming and squeaky clean with comfortable furniture and everything necessary for an enjoyable stay. The cleaning crew members were also very friendly and happy to exchange soggy towels for clean ones during the course of our one-week stay. Overall this was a wonderful find and a decent value for those million dollar views! We will be back!

ocean view

  • 5 of 5

The unit was clean and comfortable. The views from the common area are great and we enjoyed dining outside with the gas tabletop firepit. Easy accessible and located well for Sea World or San Diego Zoo. Recommend for a couple and four does well also.

Loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned home after a 10 day vacation in San Diego and stay at our Ocean Beach Seaview Lookout rental. Loved San Diego and our little beach cottage which was perfect for what we needed, comfortable, cozy and spotless. We were able to walk to the the organic grocery stores, cool antique/vintage shops on Newton Street, the beach, the Sunset Cliffs, great restaurants and brew pubs and the Ocean Beach farmers market. It was also easy access to all the fun and exciting things to do in San Diego and surrounding area. But our favorite was sitting on the patio and taking in all the glorious views that this rental offers. We honestly could have spent the entire 10 days gazing at the view. We were so sad to leave and can't wait to come back. We would highly recommend this rental and would definitely stay here again.
