About the property

Stylish All New 2 bedroom 2 bath 1/2 block to the beach.

Every aspect of this home has been completely rebuilt from the foundation up. In early 2016 we took on the monumental task of taking the existing structure down to the foundation. We meticulously removed everything between the foundation and the roof structure expanding and re-configuring the floor plan. The end result was an efficient 2 bedroom 2 bath beach house with top end finishes that lives sophisticated but comfortable. Walls, windows, kitchen, baths, fireplace, flat screen TV (Premium Channels) Herring bone patterned floors, Mahogany doors, Quartz counters, Stainless steel appliances, French doors open to front patio.

About William Hopkins

We feel blessed to have lived in San Diego for the past 30 years. Our wish is to create unique spaces so that our guests can experience the best that San Diego has to offer.

William Hopkins purchased this bungalow in 2014

Why William Hopkins chose Ocean Beach

This property is unique because it has been completely rebuilt from the ground up and located only 1/2 block from world famous Ocean Beach. Our guest get to enjoy this fantastic location as well as every modern convenience in a stylish beach bungalow. The beach lots are typically tight but this one is large by comparison. This beach house rests at the back of the lot which allows for a generous amount of outdoor space to relax and entertain.

What makes this bungalow unique

The location of the beach house is ideal to take advantage of the beach, nearby restaurants, pubs, antique shops, fishing, biking and other water front attractions.

The place is very nice- the pictures are what is looks like. Very nice and clean- great to have 2 bathrooms and 2 bedrooms with doors that close. The living room area was nice and the patio is a great plus. It is close to the beach and walking distance to town and shopping. Only downside is the airport runway is in a direct path...

What a gem of a place!! Walk to the beach, relax at home...what could be better?

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this beach house! We walked to the beach, easily, with baby and toddler in tow. We also were able to walk to go out to eat at night and for coffee etc in the mornings. The house was well-equipped with everything we needed/wanted. There were sand toys available to us, and a pop up beach tent to use. The flat patio provided a great place to sit and relax over lunch/drinks while watching the kids play. In the evening, the courtyard was well-lit by lights in the tree and also a nice fire pit. The house itself was clean and inviting. I hope we can stay in this home for a visit every year!

Perfect beach house!

  • 5 of 5

This is the cutest little beach house! Impeccably clean, wonderfully appointed, and so close to the beach! We stayed for four nights, and had three adults and one 5 year old. We had plenty of space, especially considering the ample outdoor living area. I think I only sat on the actual couch one time - I usually sat on the patio to enjoy the wonderful weather, and we enjoyed wine by the fire pit in the evenings after the little guy went to bed.

There is no A/C in the house, and the area had an unusual heat wave during our stay, but with the ceiling fans and keeping the windows open we were able to remain comfortable.

This was our first trip to San Diego, and we will undoubtedly return to both Ocean Beach and this fantastic house. Thanks to the owners for their thoughtful and thorough communication. See you next time!!

Part of the community!

  • 4 of 5

Our family loved our stay at the Beach Bungalow in OceanBeach (OB to locals). We were within walking distance to everything - the beach, Newport Avenue restaurants and shops, the historic pier, tide pools, etc. We truly felt like we were part of the community. And what a well done, cute, classy bungalow. We especially enjoyed the outdoor area with grill and fire pit. Spent every evening there. Would rent again!

The Ideal Beachhouse

  • 5 of 5

Our family had an amazing time! The house exceeded expectations! Super close to Ocean Beach and can walk to restaurants or anything else of need. James and Kelly were very responsive and their decor was great. The front patio was a gem. We traveled with 2 young kids and had a blast, would absolutely stay here again.
