BEACH FRONT!... DOG BEACH!... FREE DOG-SITTING!

Ocean Beach Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1 Bath (Sleeps 6)

This comfortable beach condo has been completely renovated (and dog proofed) with stainless steel kitchen, Italian-tile floors, marbleized bathroom, and patio. Go out the back gate onto dog beach for an off-leash stroll with your pooch (all breeds) 24/7.

Enjoy the Snowy Egrets, pelicans, ducks, and sandpipers in the estuary; meander along the bike path for other birdwatching or use the one bike; a two-minute walk West along the bike path to the public (no-dog) beach and surfing, boogie boarding (four on site), or just watch the surf crash on the rocks. Walk two minutes East to the skate-board park and wild-life viewing.

The main shopping area of 'OB' (Ocean Beach) is within walking distance, including antique row. So is fishing off the OB pier or surfing alongside it. Restaurants range from the quick-and-cheap to on-the-waterfront-moderately-pricey. There are many nightspots. You will not want to miss this last-of-the-original beach town atmosphere complete with street fair every Wednesday.

Ocean Beach is centrally located. It is a ten-minute drive to Mission Valley shopping malls, Sea World, Balboa Park, Old Town, Downtown San Diego, Petco Park, Qualcomm Stadium, and the main airport. It is 20 minutes to the Tiajuana border, Wild Animal Park, and LegoLand.

About Sharron

Hi. I'm a retired lawyer. My hobbies are playing duplicate bridge and watching football...not at the same time! I completely renovated this unit, inside and out, a few years ago. It was a true labor of love so it is near to my heart. I try to maintain it in top condition. It's near to most places you'd want to visit in San Diego and borders the beach. The Wild Animal Park and the Tiajuana border are about 20-30 minutes away. Naval bases are 10-12 minutes. It's about a mile off Interstate 8 that connects with the other freeways. I love Ocean Beach. It's one of the original So. California beach towns.

Sharron purchased this condo in 1997

Why Sharron chose Ocean Beach

There's just no place like Ocean Beach in my eyes. I love it here. It's a very relaxed natural atmosphere; no 'artificial environment' like you find in some other communities. I walked my dogs on Dog Beach every Friday afternoon for 25 years. Finally, I knew I had to make it permanent. Ocean Beach as a community is very dog-friendly. There are even some outdoor dining establishments that allow your dog to lie at your feet while you dine. And there are some dog-centric events such as the annual 'weiner-dog' races on Dog Beach. There's a Farmer's Market every Wednesday afternoon and lots of community events such as kite-flying in March, christmas parade, beach-blanket bingo,and sand castles after Thanksgiving, etc..

GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We've enjoyed everyone of our "get aways" at Sharron's property. The condo is clean and comfortable. We love the location and the walks on the beach. The yard is great and everything we need is available in the condo. We will keep coming back.
Our dogs get excited when we tell them we're going on vacation to the beach. We love Ocean Beach. Check this place out, you won't have any regrets!

If you love your four legged friends stay at Sharron's. Step out the back gate and over the berm and you are at Ocean Beach's gigantic dog beach. No parking lots or streets to cross.

The accommodations are the entire first floor of the property. Clean, spacious, nicely decorated. Many of the other listings here look to be cracker boxes at best. Not here, I'd guess about 800 sq ft. Sharron is a gracious host. When we arrived she showed us around including the backyard oasis that is your backdrop from the wall of French doors in the living area. Complete privacy from the beach walk beyond. I thought she'd show concern about the dogs tearing up the garden which was very tidy. She didn't and they didn't. She made here self available to us but we had no need to see her and she dropped by quickly on the last evening to say goodbye.

We will be returning.

The unit was very comfortable and felt like home.

  • 4 of 5
Enjoyed our visit very much. Have stayed in other rentals in the area but this one was perfect. The dog beach was literally the back yard. Our 2 Labs and Yorkie had enough room. The unit is very dog friendly. We did not worry that our dogs were going to damaged anything. The tile floor in the unit is sand and dog hair friendly. Sharron was available and very pleasant. Will return.

Owner's Response: Thanks Jim & Louise for your very nice comment on Home Away. Hope all is going well for you. I just adopted (from the pound) a 2d dog so Billi could have a playmate. She is a Manchester Terrier just 2 lbs. bigger than Billi. they are the same age (a month apart) and they are having a wonderful time playing, and playing, and playing. It was the right thing to do!

Dog Heaven!

  • 5 of 5
We rented this property for three days on a last-minute basis and it was perfect for our needs. It's marketed as a dog-friendly property and boy is it! Sharron is a dog lover and is absolutely tolerant of normal dog behavior. The decor is necessarily sparse as part of its dog-proof nature (no carpets or rugs, fake plants, non-breakable or very heavy lamps, a selection of plastic cups) and the furniture is necessarily rugged leather. We didn't really use the kitchen other than the coffee table, but it looks adequate for the preparation of simple meals. There is a fantastic back yard with passionfruit growing in it.

The location could hardly be better. Right outside the back gate, through the marvelous and dog-resistant back yard, is the Ocean Beach Dog Beach. Once on the beach, dogs may be off-leash. There is a canal for calmer water for dog swimming and waves with surfers for romping in surf.

Sharron lives upstairs but I only saw her twice, although I knew how to reach her. She was friendly and professional and unobtrusive. The kind of landlord you like to have. Property was cleaned, photos were representative of the unit, and her directions were good, although the address correlates well with GPS programs.

One bit of important information about this neighborhood: it is right under the departure path from the airport (SAN) and some of the heavier takeoffs can be a bit noisy. It was never a problem at night.

Also, while not an issue for us, the entire unit is on one level with no stairs, although the carport is cramped. The unit is pretty disabled accessible, although the beach would not be accessible to a wheelchair guest through the back yard.

Owner's Response: Yes, we love dogs and dog-lovers. Anybody who loves their dogs enough to take them on vacation deserves a break! I'll do free dog-sitting for friendly dogs (and cats) so owners can take a longer day at Sea World, Tiajuana, or whatever. Just let me know in advance. I'm usually available. Ocean Beach is also a dog-friendly community. Come see us.
