Car: Not Necessary

The thing is, OB and the OB Cottage offer a cozy, fun, safe, and clean respite for all to enjoy, but there is even more to offer in the surrounding area. If you're not from San Diego or have not visited before, indulge for a moment in things all San Diegans appreciate:

1. Nothing brightens a day more than the sunbathing seals in La Jolla.

2. Except maybe doing some sunbathing yourself.

3. Mexican food isn't a cuisine. It's a lifestyle.

4. To be clear, the grungiest-looking places are always the most delicious.

5. When it comes to enjoying the great outdoors, the best beach hike ever is at Torrey Pines State Park.

6. And sometimes you just need to get naked outdoors. That's where skinny dipping at Black's Beach comes in.

7. San Diego farmers markets are to die for. And they're open year-round. Don't miss OB's market on Newport Ave every Wednesday starting at 4:00 PM.

8. Because, seasons? What are seasons?

9. The Self-Realization Fellowship gardens are free and wonderful.

10. Though Balboa Park is pretty hard to top.

11. San Diego has been deemed America's craft beer capital.

12. If you don't surf, skate or practice yoga, you should or will after your visit.

13. For the record: 'Beach bum' is not a derogatory term.

14. Nothing beats a San Diego sunset on the beach (especially in OB).

15. Except maybe a San Diego sunset seen from a hot air balloon. We have a lot of hot air balloons.

16. And last but not least, San Diegans know how to keep it classy.

Enjoy your visit!

Why the Owner Chose Ocean Beach, San Diego, CA, USA:
Welcome to Ocean Beach (OB), where the sun sets on San Diego! OB is a low key beach community filled with flair and personality. Said differently, OB offers the pitch perfect throw-back groovy vibe of a vintage Southern California beach town, coupled with friendly locals, great dining, and a vibrant beach and surf scene. The cottage is conveniently located close to restaurants, shopping, and all the sites and attractions San Diego is known for - a veritable wonderland to spend entire days with family and friends (all within a short walk or drive). Welcome to San Diego!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The Sunset Cottage sits in the San Diego residential neighborhood of Ocean Beach (OB) - between Sunset Cliffs and the OB business district. The cottage is close enough to stay connected to the local scene (walk to the public beach, restaurants, dining and shopping) but far enough away to enjoy quite relaxation, sounds of splashing waves, and the ease of on-street parking - often right in front of the cottage. The Sunset Cottage is two blocks from the coastline and secluded beaches, and is a short 10-15 min stroll to shops, restaurants, entertainment, and the public beach - offering lifeguard-supervised swimming and surfing areas, restrooms, and showers. The Sunset Cottage is centrally located and a short 5-15 min drive to most area Universities, Sea World, Lego Land, Animal Safari Park, Downtown/Convention Center, and Balboa Park - the nation's largest urban cultural park. Balboa Park is home to 15 major museums, renowned performing arts venues, beautiful gardens and the world famous San Diego Zoo. The Park has an ever-changing calendar of museum exhibitions, plays, musicals, concerts, and classes—all in the beautiful and timeless setting. Enjoy your visit!
