My wife and I stayed here with our 2 young daughters over the Fourth of July week, and we had a really nice time. The home is in great shape with a cool and comfortable open layout. The house is one of the only 2 story homes on the block, so you get a terrific, unobstructed view of the ocean and of the sunset each night. The block was relatively quiet and a quick walk to Newport Ave and all the shops and restaurants. The property was very easy to gain entry to on a late Saturday night arrival, and it was in pristine condition. I can't say enough about how comfortable and luxurious the house is. Just the right size for a week at the beach and had all the amenities you would want. One of the best features of the house is the off street parking in the driveway. This town is very tough for parking and having a driveway was a huge advantage.
Ocean Beach is a quirky little beach town with a large, clean beach. The population is a funky mix of families, backpackers, young coeds and aging surfers....very different from the typical New Jersey beaches we are used to and a welcome surprise. There are lots of restaurant choices in Ocean Beach, and you are really close to downtown San Diego as well as to Mission Beach, Sea World and points North.
All in all, an excellent vacation in a very warm and comfortable house. Can't wait to rent again for next year.
