    1 Block from Beach and Surf, family friendly, 5 minutes walk to town!

    San Diego


    This modernized, family friendly beach cottage location, which is part of a well maintained duplex, is located in the prime, centrally located town of Ocean Beach, San Diego.

      I stayed on this charming cottage this week and am so glad we did. I was attending a work conference that was located on Harbor Island. The host hotel did not have microwaves in rooms and only one restaurant on site, not really walkable to others. That would not work for a four night stay with a toddler. My disabled dad traveled with my youngest, age 1.5 years, and I. We enjoyed two bedrooms, a bright clean renovated bathroom, with amazing water pressure and plenty of heat. I always appreciate that. The kitchen had everything you could need, and the fridge and other equipment were top end. Great technology services with wi if and Internet TV services. Quiet neighborhood other than the jets who leave the nearby airport, but that's San Diego. Only heads up is parking is a premium in this area. One space is provided but its hard for a larger car and street parking is a hunt. Grateful for this accommodation and very gracious hosts.
      This little OB house was perfect for the five of us (4 adults + Anton the Wonder Schnoodle). The place was comfortable and very thoughtfully set up. We had a couple of questions during our stay and Rich and Adrienne were always available to make sure everything was taken care of. The three minute walk to the beach, couldn't be beat. We had our full security deposit returned to us before we had even arrived home!
      this is a great little cottage. It has been recently remodeled, but still has quaint charm. Rich and Adrienne went out of their way to make our short stay extra special.
      This was the perfect location for some well needed R&R. Rich and Adrienne were available as needed and extremely helpful in locating places to hike, eat, shop etc... The location was ideal, within a block walk to the dog beach where I enjoyed gorgeous sunrises and sunsets. Surfers were out everyday at all times of day. The accompanying 'human' beach was also available to my dog as long as she was on a leash. There were many hikes within a short drive or bike ride. I especially enjoyed the Newbreak Coffee and cafe on Abbott street. Like so many restaurants in the area, they have water bowls for dogs and some even have dog menus! A friend joined me for part of my vacation and we had the perfect girl's getaway. I didn't use the yard but everything was there with tiki lanterns and grill which I know families would enjoy. The listing accurately represented the rental and it was extremely clean. I loved the location, within easy access to San Diego and Balboa Park, Coronado Island and Shelter Island. I highly recommend this rental for vacationers who enjoy beach time and occasional visits to the city.
      My wife and two daughters had a wonderful time while staying at this rental. While the amenities were perfect for our families needs, what makes this place is the hospitality offered by the owner. When we arrived we had a 1/2 gallon of some of San Diego's finest beers and the place is stocked with all the toys you need to enjoy a great day on Ocean Beach. Location is perfect where you are close enough to Newport Ave. but far away enough to get a good nights sleep. And most importantly, the owners welcomed us to the community of Ocean Beach and made us feel like they wanted us there. A great time had by all.
      Very nice clean and very stocked with all we needed.
      We stayed at this property for a few nights with our two young boys and had a fantastic time. The apartment is spotlessly clean, extremely well stocked with essential cooking ware and beach stuff, and literally steps from a beautiful broad sandy beach. The owners are very organized and provided lots of information about Ocean beach and surroundings. They live in the connecting unit but we literally never saw them - the rental apartment has total privacy and is incredibly quiet especially considering how densely packed the neighborhood is. We ate dinners outside on the patio (the raised bar in the kitchen was a bit too high for our little guys). The netflix on demand was awesome. Ocean Beach is a great, funky neighborhood to explore and there are tidal pools and spectacular cliffs within walking distance. We highly recommend it!
      The place to begin with is incredibly well maintained with a kitchen that is very well kitted out. R and A were very accommodating and let us stash our stuff there before we officially checked in while they were still prepping it. On top of that, the provided a fire pit and even s'mores ingredients so our kids could experience them! All the beach stuff was ideal for us and our two boys, and OB is ideal for kids with a decent surf that remains shallow, so my son could walk his board all the way out and the jump on and ride it back in. R and A were also super helpful in helping us to plan out the touristy excursions: Zoo, Padres, Sea World, all of which are less than 20 minutes away. OB itself is very chill and relaxed, like a proper beach town/neighborhood. And, if you get the chance, the 3rd St Bistro has an amazing brunch on Saturday and Sundays that is definitely worth a go.
      We stayed at this beach house for a long weekend and were very happy with our choice. Its clean and well equipped to the last detail. It is a 2 minute walk to the beach which was very important to us since we have 2 little girls. The owners really care about they're property and guests and to us that is one of the most important things when renting a vacation home. We had one minor request that was attended to immediately, and made our stay a lot more comfortable. Highly recommended for the full beach experience, for comfort and at a super convenient location. Have fun!
      We found the unit to be everything mentioned in the listing description and the online photographs. My wife and I and our teenage son and his friend stayed at the Ocean Beach property for four nights. The two bedroom layout was very nice and provided privacy. It seemed that the property was recently upgraded as the kitchen and bathroom were very clean and modern. The private backyard was another nice feature which provided a place for me to read. Bikes, beach chairs, beach towels and bogie boards were provided with the property. The owners were very helpful and professional and showed obvious pride in their rental. I would recommend this property to a friend or relative. It was a short 5 min. walk to a very nice beach and around a 10 min. walk to shopping and people watching on the main street, Newport Avenue. Try to be there for the weekly Wednesday evening farmers market. Don't miss the fireworks from the kitchen window every evening at Sea World.
      I stayed here with my nephews. We had a great time. The place is equipped with everything you need. It's better in person than the pictures show. All the appliances and kitchen utensils were high end. The furniture was comfortable and the beds were divine. The towels were thick and smelled nice! It was so nice to have a backyard that was private and large. We used it and the bicycles almost daily. The neighborhood is a very quiet place with no noticeable neighbors. Also great to have a washer/dryer on the property to use. We walked to the pier, the beach, Hodad's restaurant and 7/Eleven, among other places. Rich and Adrienne were very helpful and gave us a guided a tour when we arrived. That was a nice touch. I am looking forward to staying here again.
      My family (including 2 dogs) stayed at the rental for 10 days in July. Rich and Adrienne were so friendly and accommodating and made our stay great. They were quick to respond to any questions and the rental process was seamless. I had my security deposit back within 2 days of returning home. The duplex was extremely clean and had everything we needed, including towels and treats for the dogs. The backyard was a fun place to hang out and and the beach was a very short walk away. There were lots of great restaurants within easy walking distance and the location was central to everything we wanted to do. I would definitely stay here again.
      San Diego is our favorite place on Earth and this is the best VRBO we have stayed in. Adrienne and Rich are wonderful hosts and the house sparkles with a newly renovated kitchen and bathroom. They have tastefully decorated this little gem of a beach house. It's a short walk to Dog Beach and we went there in the mornings to see all the happy dogs. Favorite places to eat are Pomodoro for killer Italian food and Blue Water and Mitch's for seafood.
      We rented Richard/Adrienne's beach cottage with our 4 dogs and had the best time. The cottage was immaculate, Richard was beyond accommodating...even when our dog "redecorated" the cottage. The cottage's proximity to dog friendly restaurants, the dog beach and La Jolla made it a fun weekend. We will definitely be back.
      Rental is AMAZING!!! Planning to return to OB & stay here every year! The rental is beautifully updated, exactly as pictures & description show! Rich & Adrienne have thought of EVERYTHING - we had bikes, boogie boards, a bbq, washer/dryer, coffee maker, linens, beach towels, YOU NAME IT! Having the bikes & boogie boards saved us on purchase/rental fees! Also enjoyed the parking spot which saved us from roaming around OB for hours! We stayed for 9 days & they even emailed to check on us to make sure we were well as emailing us suggestions of the events during the time of our stay - we LOVED the Wednesday street fair! This was the perfect getaway for our familly of 3 & our 2 dogs. Secure, enclosed fence with room for dogs & kid was perfect! Condo was extremely clean! Location was 1 block from beach & a few short blocks from downtown, we walked our dogs everywhere! We only moved the car to drive 10 minutes to Mission Beach. The rental process was easy & stress free! Thank you! We had a wonderful, relaxing trip!
      Rich and Adrienne were very welcoming and helpful. The house was very clean and stocked with everything we needed. Great back yard for cookouts and very quick walk to the beach. We would definitley stay here again!
