About the Property

2 BR 1 BA upstairs; 1 BR 1 BA downstairs. Separate game room & futon + 2 airbeds

Get ready for pure relaxation, convenience and a vacation to remember. This home is equipped with every amenity to ensure you have a great experience – including owners Carl and Vicki, your accommodating hosts and concierges, just a phone call or email away to assist you before, as well as during, your vacation.

This 3 bedroom, 2 bath cottage comfortably sleeps 8-10 guests and is located up on a hill with views of the ocean, bay and mountains. You’re only a short walk to the beach and business district – a wonderfully eclectic small town offering many “mom and pop” restaurants, shops and entertainment venues.
Sea World is also nearby, close enough to see from the house, with summer fireworks every night. Downtown San Diego is just a short drive, as is the famed San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park and the Old Globe Theater. If fishing interests you, hop over the hill to Pt. Loma and Shelter Island, or if you’re a golfer, River Walk is just 4 miles down the freeway.

The driveway to the house can accommodate three vehicles with a view to the end of the Ocean Beach Pier and beyond. Seagulls, parrots and the sound of ocean waves will greet you as you step into the house to an open and spacious living area filled with overstuffed furniture and a cozy fireplace – perfect for curling up with your favorite book. The dining room has a wall of windows with doors that open up to the wrap-around deck, complete with a large gas grill and chaise lounges where you can soak up the big, beautiful, blue skies and ocean, famous to southern California. The view from this deck is magnificent and words alone cannot describe the majestic scene that is sure to take your breath away.

The master is located on the main level of the house and boasts sliding glass doors to the attached deck with Pacific Ocean white water views to take in as you relax on the king size bed. Keep the doors open in the evening to relish in the ocean breezes and barking seals as they play on the Ocean Beach jetty.

The front bedroom is also located on the main level and is complete with a queen size bed and gorgeous views of the Pacific Ocean.

The third bedroom is privately separate from the rest of the house and is located on the lower level with an attached full bath. There is also a recreation room located here with a TV and XBOX, plus additional sleeping arrangements are available in the form of 2 queen size Aero beds and a futon.

Even with over 60 options of restaurants, all within walking distance, ranging from barefoot off the beach to upscale and elegant, there will still be times where making a wonderful meal at home can add to the relaxing vacation experience. Good thing the kitchen features everything you need. All the appliances; gas stove/oven, dishwasher, microwave, utensils, pots, pans, toaster, blender, dishes, coffee pot, espresso maker, and more, are all here and ready for your convenience. There is also a pack ‘n’ play and high chair for our visitors with small children.

Additionally, this home is complete with a very comprehensive visitor’s guide to give you many ideas and information about what beautiful San Diego has to offer, including menus to the many local eateries and Carl and Vicki’s contact information if you have any other questions during your stay.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2015

About the owner: We are Carl and Vicki, your hosts. We consider you our guests and believe that you will feel that in our home. San Diego has been our home for nearly 50 years. Carl was born in Kansas where he spent is early years; Vicki is a transplant from Los Angeles. We have been married 36 years, have 2 daughters, and 5 g-kids. We love the beach community as well as the local mountains where we have a cabin in the woods of Mt Laguna. Our goal is to spend as much time as possible in Ocean Beach, riding bikes, entertaining friends and family in OB, and generally enjoying the ambiance of the location. So, in order to make all this happen, we make our home available to guests like you and work very hard to make your stay as nice as we make it for ourselves. The expectation should be very high and we will not fail to meet or exceed that expectation. We are Padres season ticket holders as well as the Old Globe, so do not hesitate to take advantage of our connections for tickets as available from the venues. We are very kid friendly as you will see with all the baby furniture included with your stay as well as the family centric movies provided free of charge and the XBOX downstairs in the game room. Your kids will be totally jazzed with their game room. Finally, we are here to support you in the trip of a lifetime and stand ready to make that happen. Give us a call to discuss what we can do to win your trust and become your first choice in your travel plans for years to come.

Why the Owner Chose Point Loma Heights, San Diego, CA, USA:
As a student in the late 60's, Carl lived for a time on Lotus St. in Ocean Beach. Many years have passed since then but the urge to return to the beach community has always been there. He and Vicki moved to a condo last year and spent a full month cycling from property to property in Mission, Pacific, and Ocean Beaches. During this time we noted how the beach cities delt with crime, noise, exhibited pride of ownership, delt with homeless problems, quality of resturants, entertainment, public drunkeness, friendliness of the locals, and ease of parking. OB and this property won hands down overall as the place to be. It provides a sanctity away from the crowds when you need it but is located so close to everything with road outlets to the North and East depending on the time of day for travel by car. This home also has amazing character, warmth, and sight lines that make it difficult to leave. Evenings on the deck are special as are the times lying in bed listening to the birds, seals, and sounds of waves carried by an ocean breeze that prevailes directly in our direction. The neighbors have the same love of this special, unique location. Next door is the owner of a local resturant. The other neighbors can be expected to give you a wave and are always happy to give directions or answer questions that you may have about San Diego in general or Ocean Beach in particular. They know you picked your location after very careful consideration. Vicki and I know that as well and appreciate you and your family for choosing to stay in our home. Let us know what we can do to make your stay the best ever!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This property is cental to many of the most popular sites and entertainment venues in the greater San Diego area. The cover of our guest guide, found on the living room table, has 25 points of interest for you to consider during your stay. Of the 25, 14 are less than 10 miles away. The beach in OB is just a start. You also have Mission and Pacific beaches just a short bike ride away as well as rental facilities for motor boating, paddle boarding, surfing, kayaking, jet skiing, and sailing on Mission Bay. All these venues can be seen from the deck at your house! The beauty of the location, as mentioned above, is the serenity that you will find when it comes time to relax and get away from the hustle and bustle of 'the beach crowd'. Vicki and I love people in general, but after the crowds have been drinking for several hours it is really nice to be above all the noise and commotion that is generated from midnight to 2 am as they make their way home. We have made the walk home late at night and find the area safe, well lit, and if necessary, very easy and inexpensive to hail a cab for the short ride home. Parking is always a very difficult problem in the beach area but not at 4554 Niagara. You will have 1 alley space, 2 tandems spaces in the driveway and always ample parking in front of the home. Do not miss the chance to stay here during the 4th of July holidays when fireworks are displayed all over the beach area and can be viewed from your rear deck. Missed the 4th? No problem, you also have a clear view of fireworks every night during the summer from our close friends at Sea World only 3 miles away or better yet spend an evening or two at the park and see the fireworks from the comfort of your own seat inside the park. This is truly a unique location and we are certain that you will agree. Please contact us with your travel plans and we will do everything in our power to make your trip memorable.
