Overview

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

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!

Best Vacation Rental in San Diego. Staying here should be your first option!

  • 5 of 5
The owners are fantastic and have done a wonderful job with this vacation rental. I had a difficult situation that changed some of the specifics of my stay and they were extremely attentive and accommodating. It doesn't hurt that upon arrival I had a growler of Pizza Port Ale waiting in the completely remodeled kitchen!

During the weekend I had a surf party with my Son and his friends and the rental had everything I needed including beach chairs and extra surfboards and boogey boards. The parking space in the back is an absolute must in Ocean Beach as street parking can be very difficult. This rental has it's own space and private entrance to the home!

If you need to conduct business while you are staying, the internet is flawless and fast enough to handle any workload you may have and the entertainment system is second to none.

Highly recommend this home to anyone visiting San Diego. Loved my time

We had an awesome stay here. It was a sanctuary for us away from the busy craziness of helping with last minute details for my son's wedding. Being able to walk to the beach in the morning and have a leisurely coffee before the day really got rolling was what we desperately needed. Coming home at the end of the day to our little sanctuary to unwind and regroup for the next day was a bonus. We had family over for a BBQ and met them for pizza and beer at Pizza Port made it so convenient and easy to have family time. Rich and Adrienne were the perfect landlords: Available but not intrusive! We did not want to leave! We will tell all our friends and family of this wonderful place and plan to go back as often as we can. It was 88 degrees when we left OB and 29 degrees when we got back to Alaska. Boo Hoo!

A PERFECT HOME AWAY FROM HOME!

  • 5 of 5
We are wishing how much we could still be at the Brighton duplex now. It has only been one week since we returned from our annual family reunion and do so much miss OB. The rental was immaculate; Adrienne and Rich have really made their rental, a home away from home. The home is modern, clean and spacious; we did not have any issues. We found all “high end” upgrades throughout the home. Everything we needed was provided, beach towels, hair dryer etc. The beds were wonderful and we had great sleep, not to forget the air-conditioning, what a plus, especially since we had a variety of weather, starting with a heat wave and also a rare thunderstorm, the AC kept us very comfortable. There were many beach toys, which we took to the near-by beach (a two minute walk), bikes, washer/dryer and a wonderful backyard where we had a choice of gas or charcoal bar-b-que’s and the outdoor shower came in very handy. The local grocery stores were wonderful and we only drove when we went site-seeing to new ventures. All the local attractions are very close by and the rental has easy access to freeways, if necessary. We are frequent visitors to OB, and we have found the place we would like to return to again and again. We would like to thank you both Rich and Adrienne for being such gracious rental hosts, and genuinely nice people.

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!
