Avoid the massive crowds of Mission or Pacific Beach and relax in one of our charming vacation rentals only a block and a half from one of the most beautiful beaches in Southern California, our beloved Ocean Beach.
Ocean Beach is an authentic, ocean-front community with an eclectic, intimate character that is revered by travelers from around the world. It is a perfect destination for families, couples, singles, surfers, boaters, explorers - people with active lifestyles or people who just want to relax on the beach. Everything San Diego has to offer is virtually at your doorstep. (More, detailed information about the area is below).
NOTE: This is my residence for part of the year but thoroughly set up as a vacation rental . It has tiled and hardwood (simulated) floors throughout, tiled kitchen counter, brand new Samsung 60' Ultra HD 4K Smart TV, high speed/stable WiFi, all the necessary appliances, kitchenware, linens and items that you would normally have at home. There is plenty of dresser and closet space and is professionally cleaned and kept up-to-date. An Air Mattress is available on request. WE HAVE BEACH CRUISERS! There is a front yard and patio with barbecue, fire pit and patio table with umbrella on a small, 4-unit, fenced-in property a free laundry room 2 steps from your back door!
In other words, Mi casa es su casa!
PARKING: We only have two off street parking spaces to share between several units. For this reason, we lowered the general price of the rental but charge $10.60 per day for a dedicated, off street parking space. Must be arranged in advance.
A bonus to renting this unit is that you will not have to purchase any condiments or spices as the pantry is fully packed and yours to use.
Most area attractions are within a 20 minute drive – including Sea World, Old Town, The Gaslamp district, San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park, Cabrillo National Monument, downtown San Diego and Convention Center, PetCo Park (Padres baseball) stadium, Qualcomm Stadium (Chargers football) and Hotel del Coronado on the Coronado Island.

I have recently made this unit available for rentals, so there aren't any reviews yet. HOWEVER, if we do have great reviews, mostly 5 star, saying they love the units, love the location and that we take care of our guests so let me know if you would like to view them and I will send the VRBO property numbers (VRBO doesn't let me post them here).
