1 BLOCK FROM BEACH, FAMILY FRIENDLY, 5 MINUTES WALK TO TOWN, CENTRAL AC!

Ocean Beach House Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom, 1 bath, 1 block to beach, short walk to town center, private yard

This modernized, air conditioned, non-smoking, family friendly beach cottage location, which is part of a well maintained duplex, is located in the prime, centrally located town of Ocean Beach, San Diego.

The property is well managed and maintained by the owners who occupy the adjacent duplex unit, so you can rest assured you are the sole guest allowing for rest, relaxation, and fun.

CORPORATE STAYS, PLEASE INQUIRE FOR LONGTERM RATES.

We are close enough to the ocean (1 block) such that you can hear the surf and sea lions at night. Stroll down in the morning with your coffee to check the surf and be in the water shortly thereafter.

This location is ideal for those seeking either a high walk-ability factor or as convenient launch point to day and night adventures allowing for a rich Southern California experience. You can see and hear the Sea World fireworks from outside the door!

Ocean Beach offers a unique blend of energy, diversity, and soul. As the saying goes, 'Ocean Beach: its an attitude not a place'. From hacky sacking, hula hooping, and people watching by the grass flat near the pier, to the weekly Farmers Market with Live Music, Llamas, shopping, and awesome fresh fare, to the vast offering of dining ranging from fish tacos to romantic fine dining there's something for everyone here and you'll be but minutes by foot to take it in at this rental.

We are fortunate that within this lively town we have respectful long term neighbors that are quiet, making our rental unit ideal for those vacationers and families seeking a place to retreat for evening rest and relaxation. We encourage all potential guests to consider what it is they want out of their precious vacation time and make sure that this quieter, non-partying location is a good fit.

Our unit features 2 comfortable queen sized beds, central AC/heat, plenty of private yard space, a high end kitchen, two flat screen TV's with cable, free NetFlix streaming, Roku3, Bluray/DVD player, and high speed (15Mbps) internet. Tank-less water heaters allow for relaxing post ocean swim showers, followed up with relaxation in a comfortable living room.

You'll have off street alley parking that allows for one full sized car, mid sized SUV, minivan, or mid sized Truck which is very desirable in this area. However if you chose, the property is but a $20 cab ride from the airport, so if you're looking to stay local, a rental car may not be needed. With cabs, bikes, and the trolley, a reasonably energetic person will fare very well! Our beach towns are extremely bike friendly.

We have boogie boards and surf boards, several bicycles, some fishing and snorkeling gear, beach chairs, and an umbrella for your use. There is a shared washer and dryer for your use on the property. You will have a Weber gas grill as well as a Weber charcoal with a coal starter, charcoal, lighter, and flavor chips provided. Fire it up and and you're good to go.

This is a comfortable rental unit for 4 people. Pictures and description are only so rich. To fully experience Ocean Beach San Diego, come stay at our property!

CHECK IN TIME: 3:00 pm Pacific Time, Day of Arrival

CHECK OUT TIME: 10:00 am Pacific Time, Day of Departure

About Richard Dodd

We live on the property in the front unit of the duplex. Ocean Beach is our home and we love it. We have extensive knowledge on what to do, who to talk to, and what to see during the day or night in Ocean Beach as well as the city.

On our off days we rarely get in our car to leave these few square miles we call home unless absolutely necessary; it has just about everything we need.

One of us is from the North East, one of us grew up in San Diego, and both of us are here to stay.

Richard Dodd purchased this house in 2010

Why Richard Dodd chose Ocean Beach

We have lived in Ocean Beach since 1998.

When this property became available, it fell into our laps and we think it was meant to be as it is a perfect fit for us.

We knew there was potential and have been upgrading ever since our move in. We are proud of our little slice of OB and are fortunate to have such a great community close by and friendly, long term neighbors.

As such, we've been renovating the property to create a space that we are comfortable in.

We're confident you will be comfortable and enjoy your stay as well.

What makes this house unique

We love hearing the waves and even the seals and sea lions on still nights.

While we will not advert a view, the sea world fireworks are something we like to view with a peak out from the side yard. The bedroom #1 window of rental allows for viewing the fireworks over the palms. We also enjoy seeing the tops of the 4th of July, PB, and Downtown fireworks when the weather permits.

While our property is a typical full lot in beach communities, we are fortunate to have a 'larger' backyard so close to the beach. Being 1 block from the beach allows you to retreat to a calmer, restful space in a matter of minutes. Coming home for lunch or an afternoon drink takes but a few minutes.

The beaches here are vast and you can always find a nice plot of sand to call your own for the day. Throw a line in the inlet for a little fishing if you choose or jump in to a volleyball pickup at the sand courts at the end of the block .

The West Coast is not particularly known for it's larger sandy beaches which makes us fortunate here in OB. With a little effort there are more secluded beaches very close by that will remove you from the manageable crowds here and make you feel as though you're away from the city , and we can happily provide the tips and tricks to get you there!

Great Clean Private Beach Rental

  • 5 of 5
I really don't think that the pics do justice to the property. I must say, the owners - Rich / Adrienne must put better pictures of their property on VRBO. First of all this place is super organized and extremely clean. Everything is where it should be. Nothing is missing! I mean in the kitchen, living room, bedrooms, basement and backyard. From kitchen utensils to toiletries, towels, pillows/beds, wi-fi, TVs, blue ray / DVD player, bikes, boggy boards, grill(s)...yes one gas and one charcoal.....I can go-on! The rooms, kitchen and living room are much larger than they appear in the pics. The back yard is a haven with the rocking bench, the grills, and the tiki lights! The wood floors, the paint, the new kitchen aid two door refrigerator, two drawer dish washer, and jenn-air gas cook-top / oven were all perfect! Oh and the cold AC was very much needed for the hot summer record temps. Outside, you have your own reserved parking spot. Enter the house either from the alley or from the street. A 3 mins walk and your are on the beach. I mean in the pacific. About 3 blocks from Newport st...the main street in OB. And about 5-6 blocks from the organic grocery store. 10 mins drive and you are in PB. 15 mins from SD, Coronado, LaJolla and other beaches. And last but not the least, the owners are very nice people with remarkable hospitality.

Great beach rental

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for a great place close to the beach, away from the hustle and bustle of Mission or Pacific Beach the this is your place. Great fun at Dog Beach and awesome sunsets at Sunset Cliffs! Rich and Adrienne are the most easy going landlords we have ever met. They have managed to create a very comfortable, clean, relaxing place in what can be a very busy and nerve testing area of San Diego, the beaches. O.B. is much more laid back than most places we have stayed. Where else can you stroll down to get a cup of coffee or grab a bite to eat with your dog(s) in tow? If you would rather buy groceries and cook at home they have made that possible for you as well. Anything and everything is there for you. Appliances, kitchen utensils, etc all first rate quality. Bed was comfortable, towels were high quality and very soft, great t.v. and nice cool a/c when needed.
This was a 20th Anniversary low key trip for us with our dogs and we had a blast! Rich and Adrienne helped make it happen. Our only hope is that if you come to stay here we hope that you enjoy it as much as we did! Thanks again for letting us stay and enjoy your home and community. We hope to return sooner than later.........

Great Vacation Rental

Needed a week away from Phx heat and found a gem. Rich and Adrienne are great hosts. Location is awesome. Neighbors are friendly. AC was cold and quite. Nice kitchen. Plenty of space in the bedrooms. Outside shower was convenient after spending the day at the beach. Gas grill was easy to use. Having your own parking spot is a HUGE plus. Can't say enough nice things abt our stay!

My wife and I and parents just returned from staying at this OB home for a week. If you're looking for a place outside of downtown SD but still close to attractions, this is your place. It doesn't get better than a 2 minute walk to the beach and/or shops and great food! We were also able to enjoy the local farmer's market on Wednesday evening thanks to their suggestion.

This unit has been kept up and maintained immaculately with everything exactly as described. With everything from a washer/dryer, to a full kitchen with supplies, to boogie boards and bikes, we were completely taken care of.

We will definitely be recommending this rental to our friends/family and hopefully enjoying it again someday ourselves!

Perfect location, Perfect rental, Perfect owners!! Very clean and well maintained rental. Everything you need is provided right down to the extra soft towels!! We loved the bike rides along the trail, the short walk to the beach and restaurants, and the relaxing backyard.
We loved it and we will stay there again when in the area!!

Excellent beach rental!

  • 5 of 5
This is my second stay at Rich and Adrienne's beach house. We stayed there last year and couldn't think of a better place to stay this summer.

The update of air conditioning was greatly appreciated. I never knew it was on, it was so quiet. We were very comfortable and cool inside. The neighbors are close but I never heard a peep from them. So relaxing and quiet to sit in the backyard and read with no sound interruptions.

We had some minor issues that were addressed and taken care of immediately. Can't ask for more than that!

The weather was perfect. Spent most days at the beach and it was convenient to have an outside shower to rinse off.

I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again and highly recommend it for anyone else.
