Oceat Front Paradise! Beach Bikes,Chairs,Umbrellas put you there in a heartbeat!

Ocean Beach, San Diego, CA, USA
  • Condo1100 sqft
  • Bedrooms2
  • Sleeps5
  • Bathrooms2
  • Half Baths0
  • Minimum Stay3 - 7 nights

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom sleeps 5

Your balcony boasts an oceanfront view of crashing waves, the O.B. Pier, and lights of La Jolla at night. Enjoy breathtaking views from the kitchen, dining, living and master bedroom. Surf sounds lull you to sleep & refresh you in the morning. Set 15 paces from a cliff overlooking the pounding surf, few properties can put you this close to the ocean experience.

This mellow beach town is known for its laid back attitude. You're only 3 blocks to the beach, or 4 to OB’s main street for lattes, sensational omelets, or renowned fish tacos. OB offers a wide range of activities: authentic Mexican restaurants; Farmers’ Market; antiquing; and a myriad of beach activities.

Spotless and professionally decorated, this is not the normal rental. Furnished for ourselves, it boasts quality furniture, travertine and granite, gourmet kitchen, espresso machine, R.O. faucet, IPOD speakers, quality linens, and down bedding to enhance your stay.

Foot traffic is mostly locals, and few people ever walk in front of your view, unlike the party atmosphere prevalent in many other beach towns. It's perfect for a romantic get away for a couple, or a weary family returning from a day of sight-seeing or the beach. We've also hosted numerous 'girls weekends' with rave reviews: it's comfortable enough to lounge around all day, the main street is casual and close, and the Gas Light district is convenient for nightlife, too.

Many Amenities Included: We want you to thoroughly enjoy yourselves while you're our guests. Amenities such as candles, coffee, tea, spices and basic cooking items are included, as well as enough paper products for your entire stay, condiments in the refrigerator, and laundry supplies.

About Sharon Kearns

John & Sharon live in Phoenix. John grew up in Point Loma, just over the hill from Ocean Beach. His family had deep roots here, and he spent his summers and weekends sailing and surfing in and around San Diego. He swears he kissed his first girl on the rocks below the condo!

Sharon Kearns purchased this Condo in 2001

Why Sharon Kearns chose Ocean Beach

'It's ON the water!' We first stumbled onto this property when we were renting nearby one summer. John pushed Sharon to make an offer. Slower to bite, Sharon talked to many friends and relatives about the purchase. Almost without exception their response was , 'but it's ON the water!' It became a standing joke: why would you not buy a property with this view?

What makes this Condo unique

The view and the balcony are priceless. there's enough room to be comfortable, enough privacy to hang out in your pajamas, and 180 degrees of ocean. Whether it's blue skies, turquoise water, and sailboats racing, sunset with red-orange light and a green flash, or an angry ocean with 20' swells and a layer of salt on the railing, we are constantly experiencing the power and majesty of the ocean.

                                                              Our stay was incredible! The weather and the views were amazing. It's within walking distance to Newport St./Ave./Blvd. in OB (where all the shops/grub is located). The condo had everything anyone could ever need-- truly thought about everything! Be sure to hit Jake and Eggs for breakfast-- WOW! We will definitely be staying here again-- hopefully in the VERY near future!

                                                              Of course, I love to read guests rave about their experiences. Toward that end I work to provide good info on local restaurants they’ll enjoy. This is a first time a guest has filled me in: I’ve never been to Jake & Eggs and must check it out!

                                                              The pictures on line do not do justice to this wonderful condo. The views are simply breath-taking.

                                                              mary M.

                                                              We had a wonderful time relaxing and enjoying the view of the ocean. We had visitors every weekend getting away from the frozen mid west and they were so impressed. The condo is cozy, the layout perfect, and the beds comfy. The waves would lull us to sleep nightly.

                                                              We did not have a car for our month stay but Uber was available with a 5 minute wait time.

                                                              The condo is close to attractions and great restaurants as well.

                                                              The neighborhood is very quiet and its just a short walk to the Ocean Beach Pier and it's cute Cafe.

                                                              We loved our stay.

                                                              Rang in the New Year of 2018 at one of the most gorgeous condos we've been to yet! We arrived and everything (and I do mean everything) was in order. The condo smelled fresh (like an ocean breeze) and the windows presented the open sea to our liking! We hiked, walked around the town, visited the tide pools, ate, drank, ate some more and opened some very special vino we had been saving for the New Year. The kitchen had all the amenities of home, the beds were extremely comfortable and the condo was very quiet (we never heard our neighbors). We rang in the New Year in style with our friends (and then promptly went to bed)! If you're looking for a nice, relaxing place to be...this is IT!

                                                              This guest was filled with energy and enthusiasm! I’m pleased her group took advantage of so much of what Ocean Beach has to offer. The ocean is a perfect place to recharge and relax.

                                                              Exactly as it looks!

                                                              This place is amazing, with postcard picture ocean views, quiet, and all the comforts of home!

                                                              Our faves in OB are the food coop, fish + chips on the pier + aah the ocean....Sharon couldn't have been nicer!

                                                              We particularly enjoy sharing the beach with guests from back east. They're often leaving nasty weather, and the contrast of our Pacific environs is so favorable. Many of our guests offer food critiques that "steer" us and others to new favorites.

                                                              Another great year

                                                              Once again, the condo was great. Clean, well stocked, and every thing was as promised. The only downside this year was not the condo, but the environment. The place next door is no longer under construction, and the current occupants have some very noisy dogs that barked at us any/every time we went outside. Fortunately, the dogs were usually inside during the early day, but it did make evenings less pleasant. Also, due to the increased public use of marajuana (sp?) we were always treated to the odor when people were under the bank edge on the rocks below the balcony. They would start as early as 5 a.m. and go well into the night. This was a general trend in OB we noted this year. It did detract from our enjoyment of our trip. We really liked this place, but not enjoying OB as much as we have in prior years.

                                                              I’m pleased this renter enjoyed the condo again and titled their review, “Another Great Year. “

                                                              I’m concerned about the barking dogs and only wish we’d been contacted to intercede with these really nice neighbors.

                                                              Marijuana odors do drift throughout the beach communities on and off: it’s Southern California and it’s legal. We can’t change it, so we chose to tune it out. Honestly, it’s rarely even noteworthy to us.

                                                              We’ll be certain to contact these guests personally.

                                                              Right on the water as advertised. Most fully stocked kitchen I have encountered on vrbo - spices and staples in the pantry. Beds are comfortable and baths are updated nicely. Kitchen and living room furniture have been updated since photos. VERY quality furnishings. Only downside - brought our smallest car and it was so tight in the garage, we just used the place in the lot across the street. That was more convenient anyway. Loved this rental!
