About Patricia Carolan

We have lived in this area since 1969 when we arrived on a sailboat and we decided that Ocean Beach was our spiritual home.

Patricia Carolan purchased this bungalow in 1989

Why Patricia Carolan chose Ocean Beach

We bought this property because we wanted to walk to the beach. Also, Ocean Beach has been home to people who value lifestyle over money and they consistently got the density decreased when most other beach communities were increasing density. I think it's the beachiest town in California.

What makes this bungalow unique

We like this property because it backs up to the park and so it faces a lot of open space

Family Fun in Ocean Beach

  • 5 of 5
Our stay was delightful. Pat's hospitality is wonderful. The bungalow was a perfect place to stay with our three almost adult children and two dogs. Pat went above and beyond with her hospitality, making sure we had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The internet was reliable so the teens were happy. My dog and I enjoyed daily walks along the river to play at the dog beach. There are several great restaurants within walking distance along the beach. We were in San Diego for a family reunion and the quick access to I-8 made it easy to get to all the events. The bungalow was perfect to host lunch and an afternoon at the beach for the family. I recommend this property to friends and family traveling with children and/or pets.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much, Danette. I lived in this property for many years so it has many good memories for me. I am always happy when those good vibes are perceived by a guest.

Great beach stay!

  • 4 of 5
Spent a fun, relaxing week here last week! Everything in the house was clean and just what was needed for a comfortable beach experience. We booked this location because we travel with our dog. Out the back gate is a grassy baseball diamond, fenced so he could run there, or we could throw a ball around. Took the adjacent bike/walking trail to Dog Beach about a block away! So awesome! We could relax on the deck, which has plants for privacy. Hot tub looks new, and is serviced weekly. Dog dishes and shampoo. Really nice linens, towels, fluffy throw rugs. I loved the queen bed. TV had many channels. Kitchen was well-stocked with everything I needed for cooking. Very short walk to beach, pier, restaurants. Comes with an assigned parking space too! Owner and manager were VERY kind. Saw a neighbor only once in a week! Very quiet except for some airplane noise. This is the only reason why I couldn't give this comfortable home a 5 star rating.

Meets Basic Needs

  • 2 of 5
We have spent the past 12 summers in either Mission Beach or Ocean Beach and this was the first time we were a bit disappointed. This house is clean and has the basic needs but if you are renting keep in mind it does not come with bikes, beach chairs, umbrellas or beach toys as almost all the others do. I over looked this and must say it made a difference for our stay. The house also does not have a dishwasher and although it has a washer and dryer they are coin operated which I did not know. The back patio is directly next to a large athletic park which we thought would be great, however it is very loud when you have a 100 kids out there playing soccer.
A huge disappointment for us was the TV, nice large HD TV that only gets 4 stations no cable, we watched a lot of news. For us this house was missing more than it offered.

Owner's Response: I am very sorry that the guests were able to get only four channels. As I discussed with the guest, I pay for basic cable (12 channels) I will check with the cable company to define the problem. I had no idea TV was such an issue. I will upgrade to the 220 channel option, post instructions on how to contact the cable company, and discuss this with my manager.

Other options for entertainment include a large DVD movie library and internet access.

There are chairs available that could be used at the beach. Had the guest made her wishes known, an umbrella could have been made available. I did provide her son with a body board when she asked about this. I'll set up a beach toy area to facilitate the use of beach toys.

However, in comparing average rates for Mission Beach/Ocean Beach over the July 4th, 2014, weekend; there were 4 pet-friendly units with 2 BR/2 Baths, & a hot tub. Their 7/4/2014 range is three to six times more than the rate the guest paid at my place. This might be considered when discussing amenities offered.

We chose Ocean Beach over Mission Beach as a place to live because the zoning density is lower; however, all of the local beach areas experience heavy use in the summer. In fact, Ocean Beach has a reputation for having a great fireworks show. The July 4th holiday may be the one time when there are more people in OB than in MB.

Awesome stay! Everything you need for a great vacation

The house was in perfect condition when we arrived. There were even fresh flowers waiting! Plenty of towels and everything else that we might have forgotten to bring. We used the hot tub every night, great after a long day at the beach. Couldn't have asked for a better place for the weekend!

Ocean Beach has excellent surfing and tide-pooling, there is a long fishing pier with no license required to fish from the pier. I've even seen people catch spiny lobster from the pier. Ocean Beach has beach related shops, boutiques, antique stores, decent restaurants, a great organic grocery, bars with live music and a brew pub. You can see Sea World and Mission Bay from the deck
