About the property

Charming 2 bedroom 1 bath beach cottage in the heart of OB

Just 6 blocks to the beach! AC units in bedrooms! This 1920s cottage is perfectly located walking distance to: Dog Beach, surfing and swimming beaches, local restaurants and breweries, playgrounds, grocery store, and downtown. Private driveway, beautiful garden beds, and fenced front and back yards. Enjoy a beautiful quiet backyard with an expansive deck, chairs, umbrella, BBQ, and a lawn for kids and dogs. A great vacation home for families, couples and business travelers.

Ocean Beach is a very exciting beach town, with beach crowds, traffic and overhead planes. This vacation rental is just far enough down the street from the beach to avoid the mayhem, but still close enough to walk. The backyard is a quiet escape from the street noise and perfect for grilling and hanging out on the deck. The AC in the bedrooms ensures a quiet cool night any day of the year.

About Mike and Tania Hunter

My family and I have made OB our home for the last 15 years and know what a special community it is. It's the perfect place to visit to experience everything San Diego has to offer in a central beach community. My wife and kids enjoy the local playgrounds, going to the beach, the farmers market every Wednesday evening, along with endless other activities and community events. I am a Firefighter at the local station, 15s, just a couple blocks west of the house. OB is a special and authentic beach community ideal for families, couples, and working professionals looking to enjoy the best of San Diego during their time here.

Mike and Tania Hunter purchased this house in 2012

Why Mike and Tania Hunter chose Point Loma Heights

This property is the perfect place for a family vacation or for the working professional. It is a comfortable house with all the comforts of home. It's very private with a beautiful back yard with a grassy area for the kids, an expansive deck for relaxing, having a barbeque, or a glass of wine. The house is only 7 blocks from the beach, just far enough to stay out of the beach chaos, but close enough to walk to in no time. The walk takes you straight down Voltaire past the fire station, a number of excellent restaurants, breweries, and local businesses and coffee shops. Walk your dog down to dog beach and let them run free on the beach. Take your boards, fins, and family and spend the day at the beach. The south end is home to tide pools to see local sea life. The OB pier is perfect for sightseeing and having breakfast or lunch at the cafe on the pier. Newport Avenue is home to many local businesses, excellent restaurants, breweries, surf shops and night life.

Walking east from the house takes you to coffee shops, "To the Point" eatery perfect for breakfast. A bit further is Stumps, the local supermarket.

Within a very short drive are a number of marinas in Mission Bay where guests can rent boats, go on fishing charters or whale watching excursions. Mission Beach and more activities and night life are in that area. The other direction takes you to Liberty Station where there are more supermarkets, parks, stores, restaurants and an excellent full service theater "The Lot."

The airport is less than 10 minutes away. Downtown San Diego, the gaslamp district, and the Convention Center are also less than 10 minutes driving. The San Diego Zoo is about a 10 minute drive by Balboa Park, home to museums and a great botanical garden. A ferry runs from downtown to Coronado, a great place to spend the day. There is so much to do in San Diego and this home is close to it all.

What makes this house unique

Centrally located to everything in Ocean Beach. Guests could go the whole week here without getting into a car. The backyard is quiet and private. It is large enough for a large deck, a yard for kids and dogs, and plenty of room for entertaining. The house is well maintained and very clean. Shampoo and soap are provided. Owners live very close and any guest needs can be met in no time.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had such a wonderful stay here! The hosts live near by and could not have been nicer or easier to deal with or more ready to jump on over at any need we might have had. This is an excellent place to stay with kid(s) and/or dog(s). Not only is it well equipped for both but the hosts have put in TONS of thoughtful small details for both that made the stay so very easy and comfortable! Even the neighbors were kind. Stay here! I know we will definitely be back!

Fantastic accommodations just a few blocks from the beach! The owners were wonderful to work with!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house and cannot wait to book it again on our next trip! The owners were wonderful to work with; very communicative and helpful! The home was well stocked, very clean, and really comfortable. Our dogs absolutely loved the yards, and of course we spent hours at Dog Beach each day. Thank you Mike and Tania - we can't wait to come back!!

Very responsive and good location.

  • 5 of 5

The owners were rediculously responsive, usually less than 10min any time we had a question and they were totally stocked with beach toys, body boards, and surf boards. It was also very clean and tidy when we arrived. The home was in close proximity to the things we were doing; only about 10min from Mission Beach, and Sea World, and about 15min from San Diego Zoo and Point Loma Light House. We had four young children and they loved the house which also included a pack and play for one of our twin toddlers. The San Diego airport has flight patterns right over the house and they were loud at times, but never bothered our sleep.
