Beach House - One Block To The Pacific Ocean

Bedrooms 2
Space 980 sq ft
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 5

If you are visiting SF and like the ocean, you must visit Ocean Beach on your stay. It is a 3.5 mile stretch of white sand beach with few tourists and no high rises. It's just you and the waves, sand, and seabirds at Ocean Beach, on the westernmost border of San Francisco, adjacent to Golden Gate Park. It's a world class surf spot, when it's good. It's a very challenging spot, not typically for beginners but there are other spots nearby that are great for beginners.

Location: We are one block from the beach. Around the corner is a nice cluster of merchants including Noriega Pizza Place (yum), The Devil’s Teeth Bakery, Gus’s Organic Market, and Establish Boutique, Yonkers Café, and Papa Mak’s Burgers. Another couple blocks away you’ll find award winning dining such as Outer Lands, Nah Trang, Trouble Coffee, and Andy Town Coffee Roasters. It’s easy to park and also easy to get downtown via public transport or Uber. There is great biking nearby in Golden Gate Park. We are a 15 min walk to the SF zoo.

Lodging: This is the lower flat of a two unit building. We have two bedrooms. Each has a fluffy comforter, and some closet space. The main area is an open layout consisting of a dining room with a large table (seats 8), living room with large west-facing windows, and a fully equipped kitchen. There is a futon-style bed in the living room and an electric air mattress for two additional guests. The bathroom has a stand-up shower stall and a tub. We can provide linens and towels for six.

Additional Amenities: We have a backyard that is great for outdoor meals or hangouts. There is a Weber gas grill, picnic table, and outdoor dining supplies. We also have an outdoor hot shower to rinse off after the beach and a hot tub.

If you have any questions, let us know - Kathleen & Paul

Close to the beach, quiet neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is nice and close to the beach.

Some things were not available- owners truck was parked blocking the driveway the entire time so there wasn’t a chance to park close to load/unload suitcases. We tried to pull up next door and neighbors came out and told us we couldn’t block to unload our stuff.

No paper towels or kitchen towels. (Or beer in the fridge which was listed in our welcome letter).

The couch’s are both futons and not comfortable to sit on.

The place is clean and beds were comfortable. Location is great! Pizza place was yummy and within walking distance.

Kids liked the books and toys- surprised there were no sand toys though.

Overall it was a nice stay.

Clean, cozy stay near the beach in SF.

  • 4 of 5

The place is the entire second floor of a 3-story building with the host family above. Paul and his family weren't there during my stay, but Paul was helpful and available via phone. Ocean Beach is very close by as is a running trail, which my daughter loved. All-in-all, I really recommend this VRBO if you're looking for a place a bit away from downtown or the GG Park, but closer to the water. The stores and restaurants nearby are neighborhood places, not large franchises, which is nice. It gives Noriego Street a community feel along those blocks.

Loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

The location was awesome. Close to Golden Gate Park and the beach! The home was very spacious and the bathroom is updated. The owners were easily available for any concerns. My only warning is, don’t park even a fraction in front of a neighbors driveway, you will get towed and it’s NOT CHEAP! Overall loved the home and would HIGHLY recommend it!

Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was lovely. We were able to have our adult children over for dinners and games. The walls are pretty paper thin so we had to be quieter with our laughing. Paul was nice enough to call and request we try to be quieter. We are a family that likes to laugh and play games so this is the only issue with the property we encountered. The beds were really comfortable, the views lovely and the kitchen was supplied with all that we needed. Thanks Paul for hosting us. We enjoyed our stay! We had beautiful weather.

Perfect setting!

  • 5 of 5

Great location, comfortable beds, short walk to beach, market, great Chinese food at Hang's Kitchen ( slow service, but worth the wait). Perfect place to launch trips into downtown, Golden Gate Park. Loved Cliff House Restaurant!
