Overview

Ocean Beach Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom sleeps 5

Your balcony boasts an oceanfront view of crashing waves, the O.B. Pier, and lights of La Jolla at night. Enjoy breathtaking views from the kitchen, dining, living and master bedroom. Surf sounds lull you to sleep & refresh you in the morning. Set 15 paces from a cliff overlooking the pounding surf, few properties can put you this close to the ocean experience.

This mellow beach town is known for its laid back attitude. You're only 3 blocks to the beach, or 4 to OB’s main street for lattes, sensational omelets, or renowned fish tacos. OB offers a wide range of activities: authentic Mexican restaurants; Farmers’ Market; antiquing; and a myriad of beach activities.

Spotless and professionally decorated, this is not the normal rental. Furnished for ourselves, it boasts quality furniture, travertine and granite, gourmet kitchen, espresso machine, R.O. faucet, IPOD speakers, quality linens, and down bedding to enhance your stay.

Rates w/ add-ons:

Early Fall & Winter_Spring $1751.97 E Spring $2304.48 Peak $2635.97 Fall $1530.98

$600 of rental fee at booking........remaining amount at 60 days prior

Perfect Atmosphere for Every Vacationer: This quiet neighborhood is mostly locals, and few people ever walk in front of your view, unlike the party atmosphere prevalent in many other beach towns. It's perfect for a romantic get away for a couple, or a weary family returning from a day of sight-seeing or the beach. We've also hosted numerous 'girls weekends' with rave reviews: it's comfortable enough to lounge around all day, the main street is casual and close, and the Gas Light district is convenient for nightlife, too.

Many Amenities Included: We want you to thoroughly enjoy yourselves while you're our guests. Amenities such as candles, coffee, tea, spices and basic cooking items are included, as well as enough paper products for your entire stay, condiments in the refrigerator, and laundry supplies.

About Sharon Kearns

John & Sharon live in Phoenix. John grew up in Point Loma, just over the hill from Ocean Beach. His family had deep roots here, and he spent his summers and weekends sailing and surfing in and around San Diego. He swears he kissed his first girl on the rocks below the condo!

Sharon Kearns purchased this condo in 2001

Why Sharon Kearns chose Ocean Beach

'It's ON the water!'

We first stumbled onto this property when we were renting nearby one summer. John pushed Sharon to make an offer. Slower to bite, Sharon talked to many friends and relatives about the purchase. Almosts without exception their response was , 'but it's ON the water!' It became a standing joke: why would you not buy a property with this view?

What makes this condo unique

The view and the balcony are priceless. there's enough room to be comfortable, enough privacy to hang out in your pajamas, and 180 degrees of ocean. Whether it's blue skies, turquoise water, and sailboats racing, sunset with red-orange light and a green flash, or an angry ocean with 20' swells and a layer of salt on the railing, we are constantly experiencing the power and majesty of the ocean.

Fabulous and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Sharon & John for sharing your condo. It is just as beautiful and comfortable as your descriptions & pictures show. Everything about the condo is wonderful. My husband & I spent 1 week in Oct. at the condo & loved every minute. We loved it so much we just got home from another week there.

In Oct. we walked everywhere, ate at the Blue Parrot twice, the Puerto Nuevo Shrimp is unbelievable good. We shopped at the Farmers Market and strolled through all the local shops. We used our rental car 3 times in a week. To get to the condo from the airport, to go to the grocery store and then back to the airport. We were always back on the deck for the sunsets and then I would cook dinner in the fully equipped and well laid out kitchen.

In Dec. the storms were awesome. We watched the waves hitting the pier & the rain from inside the condo. We walked alot, when the weather permitted. We ate out only once, at The Blue Parrot and ate the same shrimp again. I love to cook and their kitchen is a pleasure to cook in. My husband and I enjoyed the big TV with the DVR. We could zip through commercials or record shows for later. At bedtime the big down comforters on the beds are so warm and snugly it was hard to get up in the morning.

When we came home in Oct. we got rid of our coffee maker because we liked theirs so much better , we had to get one just like theirs. Today I went and got a new hairdryer because the one they provide for guests is so much nicer than what I own.

There is only one reason I didn't want to write this review... I was afraid the condo would always be rented and we wouldn't be able to stay there again. It's beautiful, we can't wait to go back again.

Thank you, thank you, thank you....

Owner's Response: Kay has been back two more times since she wrote this review! She timed one visit so she could be here for 2 Wednesday nights, the night the Farmers' Market takes over the main street of O.B. Be sure to taste the homemade chocolate: to die for!

Seascaoes and Sunsets

  • 5 of 5

I don't even want to write a review, for fear the secret will be out. We watched the migrating whale tails against the sunset every night. We had coffee at the pier. This property was the perfect "home base" for us to enjoy San Diego. We have been to OB a few times to visit our daughter, but this was our first home vacation rental, and I am afraid the standard is set high now for all future vacation rentals. Has all the amenities of home. Sharon and John thought of everything. It would be exactly as we would set up our own vacation home. Maps, guides, coupons, bikes, blender, even a reverse osmosis drinking tap to treat the (not so lovely) city water. Already booked next year. Thanks so much for opening this gem to others to enjoy.

Great OB location

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay in OB and our first with Sharon. It is a lovely property and better supplied with basics such as paper products, cleaning supplies and kitchen utensils than any other VRBO property we have stayed in. It overlooks the Pacific while being only three blocks from Newport Avenue, the main drag in OB. There are plenty of maps and brochures that are very well marked and organized. It is obvious that Sharon devotes a lot of attention to maintaining the unit. We look forward to returning.

Beautiful condo with an amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

Sharon and John,

We had a fantastic time staying at your beautiful condo! Your condo is equipped with everything you could want or need. We enjoyed sitting on the deck every morning with our coffee and watching the boats and surfers. The location was perfect and we could walk to many places. Your recommendation of the 3rd Corner resturant was terrific. We will be back and thank you again for a lovely time!

Beautiful Condo!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the condo at Sunset Cliffs. The furnishings and location were exactly as described in the listing. The weather was perfect and we enjoyed sitting on the deck looking at the beautiful ocean. The owners were quick to respond and attentive to our needs. We have already recommended this property to our friends and relatives and hope to stay there again the next time we visit San Diego.

Owner's Response: These guests were two retired couples. They discovered a broken toilet seat upon checking in. We had it replaced within a few hours and they were most grateful. Our goal is for your vacation to run as smoothly as possible.
