About Teresa A Sousa
My name is Teresa A. Sousa and I joined VRBO in 2005 to invite vacationers to rent my San Diego summer home. I had a blast doing it! I have since taken the opportunity to join my Lake Havasu City properties to my vacation rental business, and now enjoy travelers year-round. Every traveler brings a new adventure and it has been a unique and rewarding experience meeting the families and friends from around the world who have enjoyed my homes. Whether you are a seasoned vacation renter, or this is your first time testing the waters, I invite you to come to my home and see for yourself what a relaxing and thrilling experience your next trip can be. I look forward to having you! See my other VRBO Listings: Lake Havasu City VRBO #216572, #404361, and #762945
Teresa A Sousa purchased this House in 2004
Why Teresa A Sousa chose Ocean Beach
My father was a commercial fisherman and taxi driver in San Diego in the 1940's, and when the time was right I found the perfect summer home in San Diego.
What makes this House unique
The ocean view from the front porch and upper balcony is breathtaking. Being only two blocks from the coast and the magnificent Sunset Cliffs of Point Loma/Ocean Beach I spend as much time as possible taking walks at the waters edge. The covered hot tub is the best end to a long day. The cliffs offer some of the best surf spots in all of San Diego.
Please consider the following guidelines when booking this property:
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Lovely Ocean Beach home
We brought a group of 7 adults and 3 children (and one senior dog), who all enjoyed the extensive outdoor seating and large kitchen/dining areas. We had firepit smores every night. Convenience to Ocean Beach Park and Sea World/Mission Bay area is great (< 10 min drives). The house is a short walk from pocket beaches and a scenic shoreline trail along the Sunset Cliffs area. Parking was available in front of the house each day. A minor dishwasher problem and DVD player issue were dealt with in an extremely prompt fashion by Teresa and her staff. Response time to email was a few minutes in each case. The dishwashers easily handled the large loads. Note that indoor steps are steep and slippery (travertine) for a senior person, dog, or toddler, but there are wider and shallower (outdoor) steps leading up to the master bedroom balcony. All three bedrooms have access to second floor balconies. While the best sea view is from the master balcony, I could see the water from the living room as well. We will return!
This place is perfect in many ways yet has it's flaws. As for accomadating a large crowd, it is perfect (we were 6 adults, 2 babies and 2 teens) 15 mins to Sunset Cliff walk, 20 min walk to town and all it's amenities. The outdoor spaces are great for gathering. What it needs is a good thourough cleaning and some updating ie: bath linens, sheets, bed coverings, shower curtains. The stove top needs repair, oven was filthy and smoky. Overall it is run down on the inside and out. There are zero cleaning supplies, not even a broom, no plastic wrap, spices and such things. I never met the hostess and I didn't think it was my place to track her down. We had a great time and you will too, just don't expect it to look like the pictures.
Thank you for your stay! I am sorry to hear about your experience. We are normally known for our cleanliness and prompt attention to any questions or concerns. We do wash all linens after every stay and regularly replace linens and shower curtains throughout the year. As for supplies (as is instructed on the check-in guide received on arrival) there is a broom, dustpan, and mop in the utility closet next to the washer and dryer, there are paper towels and different size trash bags in the drawer to the right of the sink, and there is Windex, dish soap, 409, etc under the kitchen sink. As it is written in my check-in guide and as I said when we spoke on the phone I am available 24 hours a day for call, text, or email if you have any questions or concerns so I apologize that we did not have an opportunity to remedy your situation. I would be happy to offer you a discounted stay in the future if you would give us a chance to earn back your business. Sincerely, Teresa
Great OB experience
Ocean Beach is a local area with fewer tourists than other areas of San Diego. This house was a great place to experience life in OB for a week for our family of five. Loved the privacy and the great outdoor space. House was plenty big for what we needed. OB is not a "fancy" area and this house is quintessential OB. House was clean and everything was in working order. Short walk to Sunset Cliffs, which are beautiful. Downtown OB and the actual beach are a longer walk/short drive. Teresa was responsive and helpful the day we arrived with suggestions for groceries and to be sure everything was satisfactory. We didn't need her the rest of our week but I knew how to reach her if we did. We enjoyed staying in this house and would choose it again.
Very convenient location. Teresa is a very attentive owner
House is clean and comfortable. Well located. Owner very responsive. Excellent center of operations for our family vacation.
Perfect! Exactly as we had hoped!
The purpose of our trip to San Diego was a reunion for 7 women that have not seen each other in over 30 years. (Yup a grade school reunion). We were excited to celebrate and we wanted a place with enough space,, walking distance to Ocean Beach Village, and lots of eatery options. This place was perfect!
There were plenty of towels, the linens were of great quality and the kitchen had everything we needed to cook nightly dinners. The Jacuzzi was hot and clean and the back patio table was perfect for evening dinners and morning breakfasts. We had amazing weather during our stay and completely enjoyed the ocean views from the second floor. I would recommend this home to anybody that is traveling to San Diego that is looking for a stress free experience.
Comfy yet funky
