Ocean Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 bath, sleeps 4 maximum

Please see our video at the bottom of this page.

Lotus 1, our 1932 Craftsman Cottage, is our flagship beach home.

Lotus 1 is 150 SF larger than Lotus 2, our historic, pine-panelled 1922 Beach Cottage. That's like going from a luxury suite (Lotus 2) to a grand luxury suite (Lotus 1).

The bedroom at Lotus 1 is especially wonderful. There is a private, covered deck just off of the sleeping area. With handsome louvered doors, romantic lighting and details on the bedroom ceiling which are simply wonderful -- you will most definitely enjoy your time in Lotus 1, the Craftsman Cottage.

Many of our guests have said that being at Lotus 1 is like being in a wonderful home, right at the beach.

In Lotus 1, the Craftsman cottage, there are incredible details in every room. Dramatic ceilings with open beams in the living room, a wonderful 'Greene and Greene' detailed ceiling in the bedroom, unbelievable post and beam construction, private yards and decks -- and you're right at the beach!

Our guests love this cottage! : When you enter the cottage, you immediately notice the living room's handsome, exposed beam ceiling. The detail and the color of the wood just 'takes you home.' There is a terrific large flat-panel television, an incredibly comfortable sofa (which converts into a queen-size bed) and a few other comfortable chairs. Bring your favorite DVDs or watch your favorite sports event on the large TV screen.

There is a large, beautiful redwood bar which separates the living room from the food preparation area. A portion of the bar has been configured to provide you the perfect location to plug in and open your laptop and to get a few things done. (Notice that we didn't say 'get some work done while you're on vacation.')

The kitchen is appointed with most everything you'll need to put together a wonderful dinner for yourself, your family and/or your guests. There is a superb Fisher-Paykel convection oven/microwave, a terrific glass-surface cooking range and a wonderful refrigerator.

Architect Designed Master Carpenter Built: This very comfortable, 1932 craftsman cottage was lovingly restored in 2010. The active flow of indoor-outdoor spaces was designed to accommodate San Diego's extraordinary year-round weather.

In the front is a private gated yard elevated above the street and is situated under a wonderful, large pine tree. There is an awesome, large built-in bench, which can comfortably accommodate three people, wine, some magazines and/or some books. You can enjoy morning coffee or an afternoon cocktail or other libation in this wonderful, comfortable, shady spot.

At the center of the cottage is a multi-function room. The furniture includes a drop-leaf table and four comfortable teak chairs. The furniture can be arranged to serve as a more formal, overflow dining area or you could use the room as a study or for playing board games. The layout is perfect for privacy or entertaining.

Special Wonderful Features -- Especially for You: One of the wonderful surprises at the cottage is the french door in the bedroom which leads directly to the redwood deck in the rear courtyard.

This private redwood deck is sheltered with a handsome cantilevered roof. The deck is surrounded by a very nice palm tree and some beautiful nandina -- gorgeous plants which produce some lovely orange berries -- don't eat them -- but they are a very beautiful shae of orange.

This is the perfect place for a small gathering or a quiet afternoon sun bathing!

Just off the redwood deck is a patio area which hosts a handsome gas barbecue and a collection of Adirondack chairs. if you're looking for a nice spot to bask in the sun -- this is it!

The cottage is surrounded by decks on three sides, has a keyless entry system and there’s even a hidden stackable washer and dryer just off the back patio.

If you appreciate true craftsmanship, you will love this cottage. No matter where you are in this cozy abode, you will feel relaxed!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Back for our fourth trip to our "home away from home" OB cottage. Great place for gatherings with our son and his pals. the beach and downtown OB never disappoint. It seems that even the parts have learned of Lotus; they have migrated from Niagara! ;)



Thanks for making us comfortable.

We absolutely loved our the cottage! Perfect

  • 5 of 5
Fantastic cottage. Just right for our little family of 4 (baby & toddler) but could imagine a great place for a couple. We were right next to the beach, had everything we needed. The outdoor space is a lot bigger thank it looks on the pictures, the cottage is lovely. Better than any hotel would have been - we will be back for sure!

Totally Charming Cottage

  • 5 of 5
Very pretty, comfy and an all-around charming cottage – and there’s not place in the world like OB! Thanks for a great place to stay while we were here. Love the deck areas, front and back and the bar. Didn’t sight see or do anything special in San Diego. I’ve already highly recommended Lotus Cottages to friends and will be back!

Charming! Wonderful! Right at the Beach!

  • 5 of 5
Had a wonderful stay! Visiting from Phoenix, where it’s 115 degrees, so we thoroughly enjoyed the cooler weather! 60-67 degrees and overcast in the morning was perfect for us! Loved our walk along the beach in the morning – watching the dogs and the surfers. Very quiet and peaceful during the week. Charming cottage with all the necessities. Thanks!

Enjoyed the Front Lanai

  • 5 of 5
Lotus Cottage was an amazing place to stay. Everything was close by. The parking was just fine and inside the cottage was everything we needed. Our two kids, ages three and six, loved the place and enjoyed the front patio. It’s amazing how easy a child can be entertained. We enjoyed OB, SeaWorld and loved that Coronado Beach was only about twenty minutes away. I can’t wait to come back to the cozy cottage.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your nice review! We're so pleased that you enjoyed the front lanai. It's a really nice place for morning coffee -- you can enjoy the neighborhood -- and if you're lucky, you'll see (and hear) the wild parrots who spend a lot of their time in the palm trees across the street. We're looking forward to your coming back for another visit! See you soon!!

Top Ten for Relaxing Get Away

  • 5 of 5
We travel a lot and try to stay in places that are not the big hotel chains. Lotus Cottage is definitely in the top ten of a relaxing get away places. The amenities and not having to plan our schedule around maid service was a definite plus for us. You can maintain your privacy and still venture out to the many places we found wonderful on this trip. All the shops and restaurant owners were friendly and the food wherever we went was great. All in all a wonderful vacation and a beautiful place to spend it in
