We were originally looking at hotels for our trip to San Diego, but I randomly came across this property while checking other options....Our trip was so much better because of it! As soon as we walked in the door, we fell in love with the place. It was very clean and well kept, the kitchen was ready for all of our meal adventures (including some baking). Part of the fun of our trip was being able to make so many meals together...saved us a bunch of money, too. My wife really enjoyed the deck areas, great places to lounge around outside, and the neighborhood is quiet enough (except for the occasional plane overhead) that spending time outside isn't a problem.
The location is amazing! Not only is it close to a beautiful beach, but it's also really easy to get to the interstate. Easy access to everything else in San Diego. But no need to go too far because there's plenty to do just in the neighborhood. Be sure to eat at Hodad's (2 blocks away) during your stay.
The management is great, very easy to get a hold of and ready to answer any questions you might have. We highly recommend this place and hope it's available during our next visit.

We waren hier nu voor de derde keer , en waren weer erg blij met dit comfortabele ,mooie en schoone vakantie huis .
Het is mooi ruim ,we waren er met vier volwassen en twee kleine kinderen .
Alles wat je nodig hebt is in ruime mate aanwezig ,
De eigenaar was erg behulpzaam , ze bracht meteen een tweede kinderstoel ,toen ze hoorde dat we met twee kleine kinderen waren .
We hebben een prachtige week gehad, mooi weer, prachtig stand en en zelfs walvissen gezien vanaf de pier .
We komen zeker terug .
The location is great! You can hear the waves yet you are not too close to the busy water line. The Orca house has everything we needed for 4 adults and 2 kids from beach toys for the kids to great beds to crash for a good night sleep. Originally we thought to do much more in San Diego, but with the proximity to the beach, the great surf and plenty of dining option, why bother?!
We even saw whales from the pier.
Make sure to checkout the great recommendation in the guest book.
If you come back full of sand or need to a quick rinse - you'll appreciate the outdoor shower.
This is already our second time in the Orca Beach House and we can't wait to plan the next vacation. No reason to pay twice for a room in a huge hotel room when you can stay on the beach. If you are down in San Diego for a conference, the property also has parking.
Make sure to try the fish tacos in the South Beach Bar (walking distance - make sure to have an ID).
Life is a BEACH!

Delightful. My family rented the Orca Cottage for eight days over Christmas and we could not have been happier with all aspects of our experience. The two bedroom cottage provided us with a nice home to relax and entertain plus the easy stroll to the beach was a dream for this Midwestern family.
Fantastic vacation home in Ocean Beach with parking! All the amenities of home, great kitchen, open floor plan for easy entertaining and the front deck was a delightful spot for my morning coffee. The location could not be better for a walk to the beach or a stroll to the main shopping, dining area.
Ocean Beach is a small beach town without all of the usual bells and whistles typical of most popular beach towns. It's one of the few places left in San Diego where the shops are locally owned and managed. There is a lot to be said for this funky little beach town, with its collection of antique stores, restaurants, coffee houses, bike & surf shops, musicians, activists, & artists. Located only 7 miles from San Diego Downtown and 2 miles from Sea World it offers easy access to other San Diego attractions.
