We had such a great vacation at Blue Heron Cottages. Sarah and AJ were so helpful and friendly during our stay. You really don't need to bring anything with you! The kitchen is well equipped and there are great beach towels, boogie boards, beach umbrella, etc for a perfect day at the beach. We loved having the backyard to relax in and our daughter loved being able to run around with the dogs and other kids staying there. Would definitely return! Thanks so much for a lovely trip!
Great place to stay in OB, especially if you have a dog. This was my second stay at Blue Heron. There were more kids this time around, but when they got too noisy, the care takers asked them to be quiet.
Kitchen had all needed amenties.
BR--4 sets of towels
Easy walk to Newport street where the "Action" is!
We had an amazing time! We have vacationed many times at the beach however we agreed as a family that this is our favorite place! We were able to walk or ride bikes to anywhere we wanted to go, we enjoyed being able to fix our own dinners and just relax on vacation. The courtyard is perfect for your family pet as well as relaxing as a family. And having the property managers there is a total bonus, they are just great people! Thank you for a perfect vacation!
My family and I rented the cottage for 4 days for spring break 2013. The booking process was super easy. I received great directions on what to do when we arrived and everything that was expected to be done for when we left. The bed was super comfortable, the kitchen is awesome (we cooked a lot there). It's close to all the places we love in SD. We mainly hung out in Ocean Beach but Blue Heron Cottages has bikes available for their guests. We rode them everyday and everywhere. Very cool courtyard, very pet friendly and always very clean. The on-site property manager used her own supplies to make crafts with our daughters and was super friendly. We absolutely loved the place.
It was super easy to get to Pacific Beach, Cabrillo National Monument and super fast to get to the freeways to visit other places.
Last thing: I saw other reviews complaining about parking. I have a 4runner and was able to park in the garage with no problems. If you have a larger vehicle then you will have to park on the street. If you have a large truck or SUV the best advice I can give you is park the car and ride the bikes :). OB has everything you need (shops, restaurants, pier, sunset cliffs, Santa Cruz cove). It's also an easy walk to the beach from the cottages.
The cottage was in a great location, easy walking to the beach and shops. The pictures are accurate. Everything was clean and comfortable like a home away from home. I would definitely recommend this property to seniors wanting a nice winter get away to enjoy a warm winter climate, pleasant surroundings and in easy walking distance to everything..
There are many things to love about Blue Heron Cottages. First, the courtyard is fenced in and is basically your backyard. There are several sitting areas and I would relax with a cool drink while the dogs wandered around the property. The cottages are well stocked, have good cooking equipment and are thoughtfully furnished. What a concept! Furniture that fits the space! The property manager was beyond helpful and had plenty of suggestions for things to do and places to eat. Definitely go to OB Noodle House. I loved the beach cruiser bikes and took several rides. Even if you haven't ridden in awhile, once you see how easy it is to get around, you'll be out there cruising. It's a short walk to the farmer's market Wednesday evenings. The cove at the end of the street is a short stroll and we'd often walk down to see the sunset. Balboa Park and Cabrillo National Monument are a short drive and shouldn't be missed. Also, go to OB dog beach. I was hesitant as several people said it was crowded and not worth it. NOT THE CASE, it was worth it. Saturdays and Sundays are more crowded but that just means more dogs. It's a massive dog park on the beach! Loved it. Can't wait to go back!
My stay at the Blue Heron Cottages was perfect! The cottage was beautiful and had everything I needed to cook and completely relax. The courtyard was clean and inviting, I sat out there everynight. The items available for use (bikes, coolers, chairs, etc) was perfect; everything anyone could need or want has been thought of and provided. Steve, the manager, was very personable and I really enjoyed visiting with him in the evenings. Everytime I saw Steve, he had a restaurant recommendation. The cottage was in very close proximity to the beach and the main drag of OB which made for nice walks. Having a designated place to park was really nice, especially in the evenings.
I would highly recommend the cottages to anyone looking to have a classic San Diego vacation. There is nothing I would change or add to the Blue Heron Cottages.
My girlfriend and I stayed here for our one year anniversary and it was the best experience we have ever had vacationing! Denise was more than accommodating and so dog friendly. I have a pit bull and a small dog, and we never had any issues with them while staying here. Steve, the propertie's manager is so friendly and is always more than happy to answer any questions and makes some great recommendations for places to try around the area! We made great use of the beach cruisers that were provided and the beach is walking distance. If you want to go to Sea World, it's less than a 10 minutes drive from the cottage. The San Diego Zoo is not much farther. Also, there are great restaurants and bars all walking distance from the rental. It's fully stocked, there wasn't anything we were missing. The utilities are all updated, and the bed is so comfortable! We will recommend staying here to all our friends and will be back soon!
This was our 3rd stay at the Blue Heron Cottages, but our first since the recent renos. New furnishings and exterior improvements made a great vacation home even better. Kitchen is very well equipped. Bedroom is much more spacious with the addition of clever shelving in the large closet to replace a dresser. Bed and bed linens are comfy and luxurious. Attention to detail is everywhere, both inside and out. Owner/manager was accessible and helpful during our 16-day stay. We will definitely be calling one of these four cottages 'home' on every future trip to Ocean Beach, and since our daughter and her family live in OB, we'll have the pleasure of staying there often!
We both agree that our stay at Blue Heron Cottages was by far one of our most rewarding and relaxing vacation and we have stayed in alot of upscale hotels and also cottage/cabin rentals as well all over the country! The cottage itself was immaculate and so well equiped! We have two sons in San Diego and another visited with us, along with their girlfriends/partner this wonderful place afforded us with a chance to have enough space to really experience family time together! The Gazebo and BBQ gril were perfect for our Sunday afternoon get together! We did not bring our dogs and missed them terribly however we bonded with the owners dog and the managers dog as well. Speaking of the owners, we had the pleasure of them being on site for most of our visit and they could not be more accomodating! The greatest couple and such gracious hosts! The manager on site also was a wonderful host and a great source of what San Diego is all about!! We learned so much about the area we never would have known as just tourists! Their hospitality and warm welcome was second to none!! We will always stay at Blue Heron on our visits to San Diego in the future and because of the ease of our stay and all the amenities available to us there, we will visit more often as well!! Thank you Denise, Chris and Steve!! We have found our perfect vacation spot and we made some great friends in California!! Be back real soon!! Denise, the cottage was decorated beautifully!! You have fabulous taste!!! Geri, Dave, Aubrie and the CREW!!! one more thing I might add, The bikes are wonderful!! Thank you for making those available to your guests!!!!
This was awesome for our family of 2 adults and a child .parking is hard on the weekends but there is a garage for a small car ..This home is equipped with everything you could need . The bed was very comfortable and Very clean the price was very similar to a hotel just bring extra toilet paper that is all we needed to get and our food.
Thank~you so much had a great time looking forward to coming back
