COME ENJOY RELAXING FUN IN the neighborhood of OCEAN BEACH in SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA!

Please note that the VRBO calendar DOES NOT show accurate availability. Please visit our website at Blueheroncottages.com for an accurate calendar.

Recently upgraded,  Blue Heron Cottages offers our guests the ultimate in turn key vacationing. Here you will find all you need for your stay of 3 days or 3 weeks. Each of our 4 dog friendly cottages sleeps up to 4 adults comfortable.  You will find a queen sized bed in the separate bedroom, and, in the living room, a sectional sofa that converts to a VERY comfortable full queen bed. The two areas share the jack-and-jill bathroom which can be accessed from either the living room or the bedroom.  Each cottage opens on to a lovely, large and fenced-in courtyard. Amenities include a fully equipped, chef inspiring, kitchen, 2 flat screen TV's,DVD player, cable television and free wireless internet. You will find all linens, beach towels, beach cruisers, boogie and surf boards, and sand toys for your use. 

Enjoy the large shared courtyard under the gazebo listening to the wild local parrots as they go about their day.   Barbecue with friends and family, toss the ball for your pup, or just relax and soak up the sun. The gazebo is the perfect spot to gather and enjoy the evening sea breeze or morning coffee.

     We are located close to all things San Diego in the greatest little neighborhood: Ocean Beach.  This area has a wonderful community feeling, very peaceful and eclectic.  A variety of restaurants, boutiques and antique shops are only 4 blocks away on Newport Ave. 

 Don't miss your opportunity to purchase the freshest, and most delicious locally grown produce, art, flowers, and more every Wednesday at OB's Farmers Market on Newport Avenue. 

There is a beautiful little beach cove perfect for playing and relaxing just a block and a half away. The main beach is just at the end of Newport Ave, an easy bike ride, minutes away. 

     

     If you have a dog, Ocean Beach and Blue Heron Cottages are very dog friendly!  Dog Beach is only about one half mile away, an easy walk or a quick ride.  

   

  Ocean Beach, where we are located, is NOT a vey touristy area, but you are very close to all the main  San Diego tourist attractions. Each cottage comes with a garage suitable for a compact automobile, and most San Diego attractions are within 20-30 minutes by car. We are located across the bay a few minutes away from Sea World, 20 minutes away from the San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park, Petco Park (home of the Padres), the Gas Lamp District as well as the San Deigo Airport. Disneyland is only about 2 hours away, and Legoland is about 1 hour.  A bus stop is right across the street from the cottages, and that should hook you up with transportation around SD if necessary. However, you can easily walk or bike all over Ocean Beach...always safe, and relaxing.   

     

    Please check out our location using the location tab on this site (we are on the corner of Cable Street and Santa Cruz Avenue in San Diego, CA 92107)  You will get a an idea as to how San Deigo is laid out and where we are located in relation to other attractions and beaches. 

          I was born and raised in San Deigo and if you have questions about the area I would be happy to tell you what I can.  Our onsite manager is also a San Deigo local and can be of assistance if you need any support while in SD.  Enjoy all that San Diego has to offer then come back and relax in your home away from home at Blue Heron Cottages.

About Denise Waddell-Conte

I was born and raised in San Diego, and I am an avid dog lover (we have 7!). I love San Diego, know the area well and am happy to share whatever information I can to enhance your stay.

Denise Waddell-Conte purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Denise Waddell-Conte chose Ocean Beach

Blue Heron Cottages are perfectly located in Ocean Beach. I love the eclectic atmosphere of this neighborhood. With San Diego being such a traditionally touristy area, Ocean Beach is a breath of fresh air. Our cottages have an oasis of a courtyard, large, bright and enclosed for privacy...not usually found in the beach areas.

What makes this cottage unique

Our cottages have an oasis of a courtyard, large, bright and enclosed for privacy...not usually found in the beach areas...and great for your pups! We pride ourselves on the cleanliness of our cottages, and with how efficient and well equipped they are. You will receive personal, professional customer service through the booking process and during your stay. We have on site management to insure that all concerns and needs are handled quickly. Additionally, we offer complimentary bikes, boogie boards, surf boards, and beach chairs for your use on a first come, first serve basis, throughout your stay.

Guestbook comments from the manager

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!!!!

From the moment we arrived we knew this was just what the Dr. ordered! The cottage was beautifully appointed. I really loved the kitchen, felt just like home. The other guests were delightful as well as their furry family members. Our Pepper ejoyed meeting new frfiends of all sizes. We were close to evereything. The breezes were delightful. Mark & I hated to leave & we are looking forward to our next trip to Ocean Beach. What else can I say...........BUT, Go & enjoy if for yourselves. Sincerely, Mark, Tony & our Rat Terrier, Pepper. By the way, she loved the nearby Dog Beach & she cavorted like a fish in the water.

PERFECT PLACE

  • 5 of 5
This place was fantastic. Easy to book over the phone with Denise the owner, her and her husband both were helpful & responsive. The cottages are small (5 available to rent, all identical), but just perfect for my husband and I for a week. Newly updated, and was so clean we could eat off the floor. Kitchen had everything you need, very well stocked. Bed & pillows were very comfortable. Just enough furniture, not cluttered with junk you don't need. There is no A/C unit but we didn't need it. We left the doors & windows open most of the time & it stayed pleasant inside with the ceiling & floor fans. The other cottage visitors were also staying the week so we got to know them since we all shared the courtyard (beautifully maintained). There was an onsite manager right next door if needed but nothing went wrong at all on our stay. If I had to complain about something, the only thing would be the parking. There is a VERY small garage included with your cottage, but we could barely fit my 4 door sedan in it. It's made for a Honda Civic size car, nothing more. Parking is a challenge on the street, especially on weekends & in the summer. Just bring a little patience. Newport Avenue was a quick walk where all the restaurants & shopping were. If you plan to stay in Ocean Beach area, no need for a car, everything is within walking distance including beaches & the pier. I have rented other VRBO places before and this one far exceeds them all. We will definately stay here next time we're in the area and I would highly recommend this place. Would be a little tight for a family with kids, but perfect for two adults and a couple dogs. :)

Owner's Response: Yes, unfortunately the garages are one of the only areas that have not been "recently updated." However, that is our very next priority! We are currently in the process of putting together a plan that will mean taking down the small, outdated garages and providing our guests with unimpeded off street parking in their place. We hope to have the new parking area completed by the end of the winter, ready for next spring and summer. Thank you for your patience.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5
This was a very nice relaxing vacation cottage was very clean and the beds were very comfortable. The location was perfect close to beach, shops and food. We loved being able to use the bikes, boogie boards and ice chest for the beach. We got to take our dogs with us on vacation and they loved the dog beach. My family can't wait to go back to visit again soon. Denise was very helpful responding to my questions when needed.

Lovely Little Bungalow

  • 5 of 5
Our little family (couple, chihuahua) stayed here in an impromptu trip to San Diego. We had no idea about the neighborhood or what we would end up doing. We just wanted to be warm! First of all, Denise is AMAZING! I must have called her about 50 times and she was always accommodating and helpful. And we were able to have flexible dates there and added an extra night because Ocean Beach was so fabulous. We parked the car and never moved it because everything we wanted to do was within easy biking distance. The bikes are great and easy to use cruisers. Sea World was a three mile run/bike ride away on a safe bike route. Newport Avenue with all the little shops and antiquing is less than four blocks away. The Dog Beach is so great for your furry family member. The cottage kitchen is modern and the interior decorations are calming and comfortable. Oh, and the very large fenced in back yard was a godsend to our little chihuahua. We could sit outside drinking wine and and I had peace of mind that she could play safely.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5
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!
