All the kitchen appliances and utensils you need for a relaxing vacation including: blender, coffeemaker, toaster oven and full-size oven, 5-burner gas stove and a variety of pots and pans.

With views from living room, dining room and kitchen you will never feel far from the beach.

This house is an easy walk (just a few blocks) to the famous OB pier (the longest concrete pier on the west coast) and the main business district of Ocean Beach – Newport Avenue. On Newport you will find restaurants (ask about our favorites), antique stores, coffee houses, bars, bike and surf shops. On Wednesday evenings Newport Avenue features a Farmer’s Market where you can find local fruits, vegetables and flowers, street performances and food vendors.

About The Owner

My wife and I bought this property when we were in our early 30's. We have used it as our primary residence and as a rental for over 40 years. We completed a major remodel in 2007 and since then have continued to make additional improvements each year. We now live here for about 4-5 months in the winter and then in a small town northwest of Tahoe the rest of the year. We love our OB home as do our kids who love spending time with us at the beach. Great California beach community!!!

The Owner purchased this house in 1980

Why The Owner chose Ocean Beach

We have owned many homes in Ocean Beach over the last 35+ years. They have all had their own unique qualities but in the end we chose this unit as our favorite because of a combination of view, closeness to the beach and location.

What makes this house unique

Great beachfront location with great views. 2 off-street parking spots. Private patio and balcony.

Unbeatable Stay

  • 5 of 5
This was our 2nd visit to the house. We love the space, cleanliness and views! The updates to the house from last time were a pleasant surprise and made the stay even more enjoyable. Nothing is ever too much trouble for Jim and our booking/ arrival was made easy by his promt responses / organisation.
The house is practically right on the beach and close to so many things that both Ocean Beach and San Diego has to offer! We'll be back for sure!

Owner's Response: Scott, thank you for your 5 star rating on our house in Ocean Beach. It is especially gratifying to get feedback from guests who have stayed with us before, decided to come back and enjoyed their 2nd time around. I was glad that you notice the upgrades in the house since your last visit. We installed all new solid core wood doors and remodeled the smaller bathroom. My wife spent nearly 2 weeks installing the custom mosaic. We have received many comments on the location which is just steps from the beach as well as the direct view of the ocean and pier.

Since my wife and I live in the house about 5 months out of the year, we have many more plans to continue to make improvements on both the interior and exterior. I hope to see you next year!
During this stay the property was under previous owner or management.

First time in OB, AWESOME time!

  • 5 of 5
I grew up in San Diego, but never made it to Ocean Beach, believe it or not. We stayed in this unit for 8 nights and loved it. OB is a great place. Laid back which we enjoyed much better than the party atmosphere of Mission Beach. This house is amazing. Growing up there I know that some beach houses can be pretty run down, but this place is great. Very updated and very clean. It is also very private which is hard to get on the beach. Pictures do not lie, you are about 30 seconds from sand. Tons of places to eat in walking distance. The beach, pier, and tide pools are all great and right there.

Yes, the airplanes do start around 6:30 in the morning, but after the 2nd day you are very used to it and while they did wake me up with first plane, I was always able to fall right back to sleep. Air traffic stops at around 11pm so no issues sleeping.

We vacation in San Diego about every 2 or 3 years and we have found our place to stay. We will stay here again.

Also, after your stay, whatever food you have left please think about bringing to any of the several churches within walking distance instead of throwing away as they help feed the homeless.

Owner's Response: Dale, thank you for your comments in the review section of VRBO. Like you my wife and I grew up in San Diego and lived in many of the beach communities but settled on Ocean Beach for many reasons. We also like the laid-back feeling of the community. I describe it to friends as a mix of the 60s, the surf scene, a strong local community that organizes and likes to have fun with great restaurants and bars to boot. Ocean Beach has also now added some new cool breweries. The location of our house gives the option of walking to almost everything. The bike paths link Ocean Beach to the other beach communities as well as to downtown gas lamp district. Our kids and now our grandchildren are beginning to love Ocean Beach the way my wife and I do.I have to laugh about your comparison to Mission Beach. My wife and I lived in Mission Beach during our college years but it is now so crowded that I wouldn't want to spend more than a day or two there. We do enjoy bicycling to Mission Beach but it is just too crazy there now to spend more time than that. The traffic and parking is nuts, especially in the summer. Living about half of our time in our house in Ocean Beach and the other half in the Northern California Sierras is as good as it gets.
Since you grew up in San Diego I believe your comments about the location of our house will be helpful for future guests who are trying to make decisions about vacation lodging in San Diego. We love our house and are happy that you do too!
Cheers,
Jim Steinbarth

Gorgeous house in Ocean Beach

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this beautiful house for a week. The living space was far more spacious and comfortable than the pictures show. We spent most of our time in the house at the big dining table watching the incredible view of the ocean. The house itself was spotless with all the amenities any one would need for a comfortable stay. Jim was very nice and helpful in all aspects of the renting process. He stayed in contact every step of the way; even calling after our scheduled arrival time to ensure that we arrived safely. We will definitely look to see if this house is available first whenever we get the chance to spend time in Ocean Beach.

Owner's Response: Kathleen, thank you for your five-star rating of our home in Ocean Beach. I believe that comments such as yours will help other guests who are trying to make decisions about vacation lodging in San Diego.The major remodel that we did several years ago which opened up the floor plan and upgraded the kitchen has been consistently appreciated by our guests. It is a fun house to interact with family or friends which is what we tried to accomplish with the remodel. Because my wife and I live in the house approximately 5 months out of the year, we have many more projects planned which will make the house even more unique. My wife's artistic abilities and the influence on our home are often mentioned by guests. We love the community of Ocean Beach and the character of the people who live there. Ocean Beach is getting to be known as a fun laid back beach community with some of the better restaurants in San Diego. The Wednesday farmers market with its fresh vegetables, fruits, flowers, unique food and entertainment is now considered the best farmers market in San Diego. We hope that you and your family can come back and enjoy our home in Ocean Beach again sometime. Cheers, Jim Steinbarth

Great OB Rental

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful property and fantastic location in Ocean Beach. Remember, OB is in the flight path of Lindberg Field, so you'll wake up early. However, that's true for OB in general, so it's worth it!

Owner's Response: Mike, thank you for your five-star rating. I'm glad that you enjoyed your stay at our vacation rental and hope that you can make it back again some time for a longer stay. Unfortunately there are advantages and disadvantages from having an airport in the middle of the city. The convenience is great but depending upon how they direct the traffic, even though the airport is about 7 miles away, you can sometimes hear the planes taking off. It's interesting that those of us who live in Ocean Beach are hardly aware of it.

I hope Ocean Beach and especially our home provided a nice cool break from your desert environment.

Regards, Jim Steinbarth

Beautiful House, Beautiful View

  • 5 of 5
Just got back from a week at the OB house. It's a great house with lots of unique tile features, an incredible ocean view from the dining room table and REALLY comfortable beds. We had a wonderful time walking on the beach, walking on the pier, sampling beers at Pizza Port and reading on the deck. The kitchen was wonderfully updated and had everything we needed. Hope we get to return soon and enjoy some more great San Diego weather. I do wish there had been patio furniture so we could eat outside but maybe the owners are concerned about theft....

Owner's Response: Ann-
The 2 comments that we most often receive about our vacation rental are the ones that you highlighted, the beautiful view and the unique tile work and mosaics, much of which my wife designed and installed.Each year that we come ( we live at the house from around November 1 to April 15 ) we make more and more improvements. This next year we plan on completely remodeling the smaller bathroom which will include lots of custom mosaic work. If you return, I'm sure you will enjoy seeing what we have done.
I am also glad that you found the beds very comfortable as that is an important part of a great vacation. Thank you very much for the five-star rating. We hope that you come back again sometime to enjoy both Ocean Beach as well is our home.
Regards,
Jim Steinbarth
