This was a great spot for our little family to stay for our visit. The cottage was just as described, everything was clean and well maintained, and nicely stocked for our needs. The outdoor area is great and should be considered another living space of the cottage; we spent a lot of time around the big table and grill. Mark was an excellent host, he communicated well and made every effort to make our stay a pleasant experience. Mark gave us a really helpful list of suggested places to eat, and visit during our stay - his suggestions were great. The location is ideal... very close to the beach and town/shops. There are plenty of restaurants, corner shops, coffee houses, and a small grocery is near too. The neighborhood was generally quiet and definitely laid back. Watching the evening fireworks (from Seaworld I assume) was a nice surprise for my daughter. I would highly recommend this cottage for any small family if they wish to stay in Ocean Beach. We will definitely return... Thanks Mark!
