Ocean Beach Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 BED, 1 BATH,Sleeps 5, Private yard, Steps to Dog Beach, Bring your dogs!

Lots of summer weeks still available. Each week includes a free night, and each month includes a free week.

Spend your relaxing beach getaway in our recently remodeled and updated 2 bedroom, 1 bath property on the water in San Diego's unique beach community of Ocean Beach. This lovely space includes a private, completely fenced back yard with patio and gas grill, off-street covered parking ,private secure WiFi, and quick Dog Beach access. There is never an extra charge for pets!

For your comfort and protection, ALL linens (sheets, pillowcases, mattress pads, zippered pillow covers, bedspreads, throws and throw rugs) are clean and fresh for each new guest. This is much higher than the industry standard, but do you want your kids and pets on anything less?

This beautiful apartment begins with a cozy living room just off your carport. It features cushy recliners, an electric fireplace/heater, and a 32' flat screen TV with DVD player and ATT Uverse HDTV plus DVR. The credenza contains beach towels and there are beach bags and hats for your use by the back door so you can grab them on your way to the beach!

Down the hall is the larger of the 2 bedrooms with a queen sized bed, 21' flat screen TV with DVR access and a large closet complete with an assortment of fresh robes and slippers. There are extra bed linens in the chest of drawers, extra blankets/pillows in closet.

Further down the hall is the apartment's spa bathroom complete with tub/rain shower, vanity space for 2 and a

fabulous glass pedestal sink. The shower is lined in slate style ceramic tile trimmed in slate and limestone and the vanity area and back splash are glass mosaic tile. There are plenty of fluffy towels to pamper you and a powerful hair dryer.

The metal dining table sits under a casual nickel chandelier and seats 6. The adjacent lounge has a full sized sofa bed hidden in a plush micro suede couch, and another flat screen TV with DVR access. This area can seat 6 comfortably. Also in this open area is a brand new kitchen with glass doored cupboards, a very deep stainless steel sink (for bathing small dogs and children?) and new stainless range and refrigerator. The countertops are Italian porcelain tile. There is also a pull-out pantry, as well as dishes, glasses and crystal stemware for at least 8 people.

The smaller bedroom houses adult extra-long bunk beds along with a built in desk and another closet complete with fresh robes and slippers. Its window looks out onto the patio and back yard.

Walk out the back door and you will find a covered patio and landscaped 'beachy' back yard covered by shade sails and decorated with old surfboards. There is an outdoor lounge area with comfy chairs. The back gate opens onto a paved path, the San Diego River estuary (a wetlands sanctuary for birds such as blue herons, snowy egrets, pelicans and osprey) and then the beaches. The beach on the left is for people and the beach on the right is a unique off-leash area for dogs to run, swim and socialize!

All beds have Select Comfort Sleep Number mattresses (queen with dual controls) so you can adjust the firmness to any degree and as often as you like. These mattresses can also be dry cleaned as necessary. The pillows are encased in hypoallergenic covers that are washed after each use.

The simple, tasteful decor features original works by local painters and sculptors. The dog-proof, kid-proof floors are concrete which has been stained and sealed and are textured to be slip-resistant. The throw rugs are washed after every use. To help circulate the ocean breezes, there are ceiling fans in every area of the apartment.

We are long-time Ocean Beach residents, having raised our children here. We are semi-retired and enjoy an active lifestyle with participation in local events and culture.Ask us about local restaurants!

Brita Ferm purchased this condo in 1995

Staying in our property for a weekend or 6 months, lets you have the bona fide beach lifestyle. It is super clean and comfy, practically kid- and dog-proof, and has the best neighbors in OB...us!

Bird sanctuary just beyond your back gate, steps to Dog Beach and other wide sandy beaches, top notch restaurants, and a small town atmosphere greet you in one of Southern California's few remaining authentic beach communities. This location and the potential to remodel into living quarters both practical and cozy are what sold us on our property. We hope you'll agree!

A Great Spot

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 28, 2014
  • Stayed: Mar 2014
We think everything about this place is as good as other reviews have mentioned. The house space and patio are great, as is the handy location to the dog beach. We enjoyed it much. The dog beach is a really fun place to be with your pooch.
Our stay was unfortunately shortened by a sudden need to return home (and to winter), so we didn't get to sample everything the area had to offer. Our loss, I'm sure.
The home owner is great to deal with, also. We hope to return at some time to enjoy this rental again and continue our exploration of the area.
We want to say that we had a dog emergency, and (VCA) Peninsula Veterinary Hospital on Voltaire St. saw us right away and were both competent and kind. They'd be our vets if we lived in Ocean Beach.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much! I was so disappointed to see you all go, especially under such sad circumstances. I'm sure when you come back, you'll discover even more to love about OB! All my best wishes, Brita

Perfect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Feb 28, 2014
  • Stayed: Feb 2014
House: Will be returning soon! House was completely clean and fresh with no signs that pets stayed in house or backyard. House came with fully stocked kitchen, linen, paper goods, washer/dryer, seating was considerably more comfortable then expected, bathroom and back yard were just as attractive as the pictures showed. Access to dog beach was priceless. Had semi-noisy party one night with no complaints from property owner or neighbors. One provided parking spot was safe. Access to curb parking for second vehicle was no challenge and I felt comfortable leaving my car on curb without threat of break-in or vandalism. Only limitation on curb parking was a 4 hour window on one day for street sweepers, signs posted by city with clear info. I do not have children, but I thought the house seem very safe inside for them.

Property owner: Was very responsive to questions and concerns, both by phone and by email. Her communication was very warm and inviting, yet professional. I really liked and trusted her early-on. Provided information of interest and importance up front and in a 3-ring binder which we referenced often.

Ocean Beach Area: Dog Beach allows supervised, off leash dogs at all times. Dogs are also welcomed in Ocean Beach (OB) neighborhoods, across the street from OB proper, at restaurants (as long as you sit in patio areas), and at all non-food serving shops; but, are not allowed on Ocean Beach proper from 8 am - 4pm. Dogs allowed on-leash after 4pm. Coffee shops, restaurants, liquor store, etc. all very close-by to house. Main streets with lots of restaurants and shops within walking distance. Grocery store about 10 min drive away.

Challenges: Wi-fi was very good for computer gaming in front room, but poor in back room. Wi-fi was very good for internet use in front room, adequate-poor in back room. My roommates loved the bed (master bedroom), I was indifferent (bunk bed and couch bed). OB area was doing some housing construction near beach which was not very attractive, but not a big deal. Construction area was well fenced and secure.
Owner's Response: Hi J and Friends!
Thank you for such a glowing and comprehensive review. I'm sure your comments will help others as they make their vacation plans. I appreciate the feedback on the wifi, and will see what I can do about moving the gateway to get better coverage in the back of the house. I'm so glad you all had a great vacation and look forward to seeing you back here soon!

Still Fabulous

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 9, 2014
  • Stayed: Nov 2013
Our second stay at Brita's wonderful rental was fabulous. While the uncharacteristic rainy weather during our stay meant we coudn't really enjoy the backyard, it also reinforced why I will always choose to stay here when it's available during my OB visits. 3 adults and one dog had plenty of room to spread out (unlike if we'd been in a hotel room). We could cook & eat together, watch TV (separately if we'd wanted), hang out comfortably together or have space to ourselves. The house is very well maintained and clean. It's so nice to be able to bring a dog and yet, you'd never know dogs had been here before. Of course, the location can't be beat if you have a dog. Dog Beach is steps away. As soon as the rain stopped, we could walk right out to the beach or downtown OB. Such a convenience (no loading up in the car, driving & finding parking). So if you're looking for a clean, convenient Ocean Beach rental with off street parking, look no further. You won't be disappointed.

WONDERFUL place, location, and experience!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Dec 3, 2013
  • Stayed: Nov 2013
My husband, 3 large dogs, and I stayed at this wonderful OB property for the Thanksgiving weekend and what a wonderful experience! The property was in an amazing location and is really just steps from the beach (Dog Beach too). The property was very clean and you couldn't tell that a dog had ever stepped foot in the house. The property is just as it appears on the listing and was very comfortable for all of us, and certainly could have accommodated more as well. The kitchen and living spaces were perfect for our Thanksgiving cooking and celebrating. We loved the deck area for hanging out with the dogs after time at the beach, sipping on some wine, and watching the sun set over the water. Being so close to the beach and walking trails was also really nice for times without the dogs.The owners are very nice and provided excellent/superb customer service. They even recommended a dinner spot steps away that was phenomenal. We will definitely stay here again!
Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review! I'm glad our property met your expectations and that you had such a wonderful holiday. It was a real pleasure hosting all of you, and we look forward to seeing you again soon. You're welcome back any time!

Best Doggie Vacation, ever.

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 20, 2013
  • Stayed: Oct 2013
I had a great time with my children and THREE dogs at this vacation home. The house is beautiful, just as pictured. Rooms are a little small but definitely big enough for all of us (3 adults, 1 teen, a Great Dane and 2 lab mixes).

Brita has some things on hand, so you don't have to rush out to the store. This was helpful. Very clean, you'd never know dogs ever stayed here. The backyard was awesome and everything is true to the statement that the dogs can't destroy much. A short walk to the water. I think someone commented it was long. It's not. Leash free walking on the shore was probably the best experience I've had with the dogs. Bring your poop bags! Super easy to clean up on the sand. We also had dinner at Shades just a half mile walk down Abbott WITH the dogs. They are also very dog friendly.

Overall a great place to vacation, with or without dogs.
Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the wonderful review! I'm so pleased you all had a great vacation at our place. I enjoyed all of you, but having a Dane here again was really special, since my own has been gone for several years. Thank you very much for leaving our place in such good shape! We'll be happy to see you again any time!
