Great location to experience local culture

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our week at this cottage, having previously visited the highlights of the San Diego area. Great local restaurants and amenities as well as beautiful walks on the pier and scenery. Cabrillo Lighthouse and Point Loma, Ocean, Mission, and Pacific beaches all walkable - all worth more than a one day visit. We even happened upon a surfing competition. Our accommodations were cozy, updated and clean, bed comfortable. Host was great to work with, would stay again!

We had never stayed in Ocean Beach. It is a younger crowd and wasn’t quite our taste. That being said the cottage we stayed in met our needs and was just two blocks from the ocean. We loved riding the bikes that were available to us. We are near the airport so you will hear them take off starting early in the morning and throughout the day. Paula is very attentive to your needs and quick to respond. We would recommend this place to younger friends. We appreciate Paula sharing her home with us this past week. Thank you.

Clean value priced 2 blocks from beach

  • 4 of 5

This is a wonderful place to stay. Everything is as advertised and the cottage deserves all the good reviews it already has. Because of previous reviews there is not much we can add. Except previous reviewers did not say much about the bikes provided. We stayed 9 days without a car and biked everywhere. We biked to Sea World, to Old Town, to the end of point Lona. The bike tires need air weekly and a good air pump is provided. It works by pressing nozzle onto bike valve and at same time turn nozzle lock in the direction of the bike.valve.

I gave 4 stars out of 5 because the Ocean Beach community is under a flight path. The planes are not allowed to fly from 11:30 pm to 6:30 am so you can sleep. But then precisely at 6:30 am the planes come by at the rate on one per minute. Previous reviewers hardly mentioned the planes. Maybe they got used to them.

Paula's cottage by Ocean Beach was so perfect! My daughter and I stayed 8 nights in the cottage while I was visiting her in San Diego. (She is in the Navy) The cottage was very clean and provided towels, wash cloths, extra sheets and blankets. There's a grocery store not too far away and we were able to cook breakfast every morning and we cooked dinner on several occasions. Ocean Beach is in walking distance and when we walked to the beach we took the beach towels, mats and umbrella that Paula provides. The sunset off the pier was stunning! She also has 2 bicycles if you prefer to ride. The parking spot in the alley was a God send! We didnt have to fight for a parking spot every time we came home! The neighbors were quiet and very friendly. Everything we wanted to do was within 15 to 20 minutes away and the highway entrance is 5 minutes or less from the cottage.Of course no one can be anywhere in 20 minutes during San Diego rush hours but even that obstacle will not keep me from staying at Paula's cottage the next time I visit my daughter. I highly recommend this home away from home to anyone looking to stay in the San Diego area, even if it's just for the night.
