perfect for families!

  • 5 of 5
This condo was absolutely perfect for our family of 5 including 3 little ones! We walked the beaches morning & night & took tons of photos. The location was right in the heart of everything there is to do in San Diego, so it was a short drive back for afternoon naps for the kiddos. We ate breakfast at Shades per Karen's recommendation & it was excellent, we also recommend Roberto's OB for quick, great Mexican food. There was a really good view of the ocean from the balcony & plenty of parking at the end of Del Monte for visitors. The condo was immaculate, family friendly & completely stocked with everything we needed. Karen always answered my emails immediately! We plan to book again soon!

close to everything, beautiful apartment, avoid bringing a huge car/SUV

  • 4 of 5
Karen was wonderful to work with and the apartment is a beautiful as the pictures. It is clean, modern and well stocked. It is close to everything and we were able to leave the car parked for many days. The designated parking spot is very tight and a visitor from another unit kept parking illegally across the spot making it virtually impossible to navigate (we were driving a full size sedan). Luckily the garage didn't need to be accessed during our stay and Karen told us we could use the entire parking area which was great.

Warning to all light sleepers, Ocean beach is in the flight path starting at 5:30 AM. Warm weather required open windows (which wasn't great for the early morning wake up) but the ceiling fans and the ocean breeze kept us comfortable. There is an AC unit in the living room for the really warm days and it helped for the 1st two days that was hitting 90.

The restaurants in OB are AMAZING! Almost all are casual and there were many excellent and fun choices. Daily trips to Azucar the Cuban pastry shop became a necessity for their treats, their great coffee and friendly service. Many great shops to check out and a fair numbers of decent antique shops. Again, all walking distance.

There are no views at all from the unit and while there was a very small balcony with two chairs, there really isn't any outdoor space. The ad did mention use of the main house balcony for 1 night if you book for more than 5, but as Karen no longer lives in the main house but rents it so that option is no longer available. It would be best to remove that from the description. If you lean over the small balcony you can see the ocean which is really close by but you can't sit and gaze. It's so close though that a 90 sec walk in either direction will bring you to a public space where you can watch the waves and the sunsets.

The unit is situated around a mile from the Dog beach and our family loved walking along the surf to watch the waves and the surfers to be rewarded with watching happy pups frolic in the waves.

The unit is more on the cliff side and there were several access points to get you down to the rocks. It was great to sit on the rocks and watch and listen to the waves. We often went down with a book and just relaxed. The unit doesn't have any beach chairs, but most people just sit on the rocks.

Excellent unit, I would rate it 4 1/2 stars because lack of outdoor space and views lost 1/2 star. I would definitely recommend it.

Owner's Response: Thank you for pointing out the use of the patio being in the description. It was my mistake for not catching that at the end of the listing.

We appreciate what great guests you were. Happy you enjoyed our restaurant recommendations.

Parking that close to the ocean is difficult at best. Glad we could find a parking solution for you.

Great Rental Home!

  • 5 of 5
This place was absolutely amazing! Karen was great to work with, she accommodated to us when we had an early flight in and made sure the house was ready for us to check in early! It was steps from the ocean and a small walk to the beach! The place was super clean and so nice! I would defiantly book this place again in the future! Ocean Beach was the perfect location to everywhere, 15 minutes from the airport and a short drive anywhere else! Everything in the house made me feel at home and comfortable.

House by the Sea

  • 5 of 5
Everything was perfect. The location was great. The beds were so comfortable. It was super convenient to have all the kitchen equipment. We made breakfast every morning. The rental was decorated awesome. The rental was clean. It looked just like the pictures. Our family took walk a long the beach every night. We also walked around the neighborhood to ocean beach super atmosphere. The owner was great. She emailed me back right away with any questions I had. We can not wait to stay here again....

A great place to stay!

  • 4 of 5
My husband, two children (ages 4 and 7 months) and I just returned from House by the Sea. We had an incredible time. The house is beautiful and looks exactly like the pictures. It is in close walking proximity to the beach and to the town and centrally located for driving around San Diego (we went to the zoo, to Legoland and to downtown/Coronado on different days). We really enjoyed staying at this property and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. The only reasons I gave "good" instead of "excellent: -- one is that the house (like all of OB) is under the San Diego Airport flight path, and you will hear airplanes taking off from 6:30 a.m.-10:30 p.m. Additionally, the last night we were there we could hear a lot of noise from the main house through the bedroom walls. This hadn't been a problem previous to the last night, but for whatever reason it got very loud. I would definitely stay there again in a second and am hoping to stay again with our extended family in the main house. Karen is incredibly responsive and we appreciated all of her tips about where to shop, where to eat and where to go. You won't regret a stay at this beautiful property.

Amazing oceanfront rental in quiet beach town

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I, along with another couple, visited San Diego to run the 2014 Rock n Roll half marathon. We did not want to stay downtown and so looked for something in the outer areas of SD.

We had such an amazing time staying at this oceanfront condo in Ocean Beach. It was centrally located to all the shopping/activities San Diego has to offer and has all the comforts of home. Karen is wonderful and responded to my questions within moments.

We were sad to leave and are already talking about renting this property next year. Thanks so much, Karen, for making our trip so memorable!
