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, 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!

Please do not hesitate to contact us for more information about our holiday rates or stay duration's.

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

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.

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!

WONDERFUL BEACH COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
This was a joint vacation/visit with our daughter and her husband, so we wanted the flexibility to relax on the beach and venture out to see the sights of San Diego together, so location was perfect--walk to beach and restaurants and easy access to interstate for trips into city and La Jolla. We arrived at airport late morning, while my daughter and son-in-law arrived late afternoon by car, so at my short-notice request, Rich and Adrienne were very accommodating and shuffled the cleaning time around to allow us to check in a few hours early rather than making us wait at airport. The welcome book was very thorough: WIFI info, restaurant menus, medical info (to include vet care), instructions for AC/heat, etc. The cottage was VERY clean and up-to-date with modern kitchen (upscale appliances) and comfy beds. The kitchen had everything we needed--even fresh creamer in fridge for coffee. We've stayed at beach condo's in FL where we had to supply everything--paper towels, garbage bags, foil, baggies, dishwashing detergent, olive oil, sugar packets, tea, coffee, etc--but not here. Rich and Adrienne have thought of all your needs. They even provided all grilling supplies, bikes, beach towels, chairs, beach umbrella, cooler with ice packs, etc. We're also soccer fans, so we really appreciated the Roku and WIFI which allowed us to watch the U.S. play in the World Cup! Would not hesitate to stay here again!

EXCELLENT RETURN STAY

  • 5 of 5
After a stay in January we were back again for five nights. January was cool. These days in May were very hot in Ocean Beach but the air conditioning and "ocean conditioning" kept us very comfortable. This property continues to be quiet, comfortable and relaxing. The beach is very accessible and we spent several hours there keeping cool as temperatures just inland soared to 100 degrees. We will stay again for sure!

We had a wonderful long weekend here. It's a very comfortable rental property with a safe gated yard which was wonderful for our girls and dog. It was so close to town and the beach that we walked everywhere. Our hosts had a nice bottle of wine waiting for us which was a very special touch. We highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great place in Ocean Beach.

PERFECT SD BEACH VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We rolled into town an hour before check-in, yet Rich and Adrienne went the extra mile to get us in right away. Having a parking space off the street is awesome -- a huge selling point in OB. We very much appreciated the cold beer in the fridge that was left for us as a house-warming gift. The place is immaculate. Super cool decor with comfy beds and sofas, new/high-tech appliances and electronics, and a lovely outdoor patio lit up beautifully with Tiki torches at night. The wi-fi connection worked out well, too, since we had to get some work done while we were there. We loved the 5-min walk to Dog Beach, where we went at least 2, if not 3 times/day with our kids and Chocolate Lab. OB is an awesome little beach town with tons of character and great food and shops. The Farmer's Market is way cool, too. We look forward to many stays with you in the future. We wouldn't change a thing (except a few more days of vacation, of course). Thanks!

GREAT APARTMENT FOR THREE WEEK STAY

  • 5 of 5
We spent three weeks in this wonderful apartment to get away from the cold back home. The owners are very responsive and have really spent some time making this a perfect home away from home. The location is fantastic, one block from the beach and a few blocks to Newport Ave shops, cafes and bars. The street is quiet and the home is very comfortable: nice comfy couches in living room, comfy beds, nice bright modern bathroom, modern kitchen with everything you need to cook up a home meal, great little outdoor area and your own parking spot. Rich and Adrienne are great hosts too. We will be back for sure!

TOP NOTCH IN EVERY WAY

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I are retirees from Tucson, AZ. We booked this property on short notice and are delighted to report we had a wonderful stay. Everything about this apartment is top notch and Richard and Adrienne have spared no expense in furnishings, appliances and amenities. A new heating system works great. The kitchen came well stocked and a nice chilled bottle of wine awaited us when we arrived. The neighborhood is quiet and friendly. The private patio gives additional space if the weather cooperates. The property is at the back end if a duplex which the owners occupy also. They are on hand in the rare event they might be needed. A single parking space is allocated to guests in the alley at the back of the property. As noted by others, this is a tight spot, but certainly "doable". On street parking availability looked very challenging. We would stay with Richard and Adrienne again and recommend this property to other parties from 2 to 4 people.
