A Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

The beach cottage was extremely clean with very cool and eclectic decor. The bed was super comfy, kitchen had everything we needed and having the beach towels, chairs, umbrella, boogie boards, etc. was amazing! The location is awesome in laid back OB a block from the beach and a few minutes drive to the zoo, Sea World, downtown and other beaches. The garage is a little tight but so nice to have somewhere guaranteed to park. My kids and I had a fabulous time!

Excellent location but airplane noise was excessive

  • 4 of 5

Great spot, very clean and had all the amenities. Only downside was planes flying over periodically through the night and consistently starting at 6am every morning, so if you can deal with noise it might be ok, not sure I would choose to stay there again.

Cozy, Convenient, and Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The Grant's Getaway vacation rental made our vacation SO enjoyable! The location (two blocks from the beach and within walking distance to restaurants/stores), layout, and amenities (beach wagon, wake boards, beach chairs, beach towels, beach umbrella, washer/dryer, smart tv with access to Direct TV, private patio with grill, private entrance) were just perfect for our family! We already want to go back and would love to book this property for future visits to San Diego!

Grant’s Getaway is perfect for a stay in Ocean Beach. The location is ideal, only a block to the beach and within walking distance to restaurants and shops. The place itself is charming and thoughtfully decorated with a spacious patio.

Ocean Beach


Palm trees line the streets of this historical Southern California community, and at 5080-86 Brighton Ave, you are just one block from the largest beach in Ocean Beach and everything this town has to offer.

If shopping is your way to relax, take a walk down Newport Avenue and browse through one unique shop after another offering jewelry, surfboards, shells, beads, boutiques, unusual resale treasures and antique stores. And the majority of merchants are residents, so expect to receive a friendly smile and good old-fashioned service.

A good reason for living in Ocean Beach is its casual, small-town charm with its diagonally parked cars along the main street of Newport Avenue. This centrally located three-block-long shopping district has much to offer—and has no parking meters!

Hungry for breakfast, lunch, or dinner? Ocean Beach delivers whether it’s a first-class meal with an ocean view or a simple bite to eat including 75 recommended restaurants, wine bars, micro-breweries and brew pubs as well as the longest fishing pier on the West Coast. Most all these restaurants are within a 10 minute walk.

Visit the Ocean Beach Main Street Association online for a list of eateries, shops, attractions and calendar of events.

The streets of Ocean Beach are also dotted with friendly pubs. They are ideal for catching the sunset from a deck, watching your favorite sporting event or celebrating with a friend over a house specialty. You’ll definitely feel like a native at one of these relaxed, friendly establishments. Most of these places are in the third block of downtown Ocean Beach, which is nearest to the ocean.

If it’s action you want, swim or surf in Ocean Beach’s big blue backyard just steps away from your home. Ocean Beach is proud of its beautiful main beach, which is patrolled year-round by San Diego City Lifeguards. Plus, there are designated areas along the beach specifically designated for swimmers, dogs and for surfing.

If you want to buy a surfboard, there are several shops near the beach including South Coast Surf Shop at 5023 Newport Ave. (619-223-7017). You can also find a good selection of Hawaiian shirts and swimsuits here too.

You can also rent a bike or a pair of rollerblades, jog or just enjoy walking on the miles of sandy beaches. End a perfect day by watching the sun melt into the horizon from beautiful Sunset Cliffs near Hill Street.

Tennis, soccer and baseball enthusiasts will be happy to discover Robb Field (619-531-1563), an expansive recreation center. It comes complete with a fee based weight room and fitness center. This all-purpose athletic park also boasts Robb Field Skate Park with 40,000 square feet of curves, bowls, jumps and rails. Admission is free to the park. Robb Field is where I-8 ends and Ocean Beach meet.


You can also stroll the 1,971-foot landmark Ocean Beach Pier which is the longest concrete fishing pier on the West Coast. There is a bait-and-tackle shop here where you can rent a pole, bait & tackle, net and expert advice. Then you can dangle a fishing line and catch some fish while enjoying the ocean air and great coastal views. While on the pier have a bite to eat at the Walking on Water Cafe (4).

Plus, at low tide you can spend literally hours just discovering the many tide pools south of the pier. For low and high tide information, call (619-221-8824). The tide pools are at the foot of the pier.

Or visit for San Diego California Tides


Ocean Beach also has a quarter mile of beach dedicated to your furry four-legged friends. It’s the world famous Dog Beach, located not more than 500 feet from your home on Brighton Ave where you can bring your canine companion for a walk on the beach with or without a leash. The beach scene includes a secluded beach, a surfing-only beach, a swimming-only beach and a dog beach.

In addition to Dog Beach, Ocean Beach abounds with pet-friendly dining establishments, dog washes and a lot of businesses will leave water bowls out for your pooch.

Only a few blocks away you will find Dog Beach Dog wash at 4933 Voltaire Street, San Diego, CA 92107
