The Perfect Weekend

  • 5 of 5
I has the absolute best time staying at this house. I had a whole special proposal weekend planned out and the owners were so accomodating and helpful! I proposed to my then girlfriend at the beach in OB, my buddy hid and caught the moment with some awesome pictures. After that I took my now fiance back to the Avocado house and surprised her with our family and closest freinds to help us celebrate our engagement, that is when she really lost it and was completely shocked. After the surprise it was just be and my someday wife to take in the beautiful house and area and celebrate our engagemnet. She fell in love with house, it could not have been more perfect! It looks like The Avocado House came straight from her Pinterest. There are just so many small details that go into the house that make it the perfect getaway spot. I loved the outdoor space and I could have spent all day in the sunroom. Thank you to the owners for being so accomodating and helping us make this such a memorable moment in our lives. We will definetely be returning to The Avocado House to celebrate future anniversaries!

Great beach community

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time at this little place. It had a wonderful outdoor space that really extended the living space overall. Short walk to restaurants, markets, and the beach. Location made it easy to access down town, point loma, beaches, and area attractions.

Things to avoid:
OB Noodle house: not worth the hype or waiting in line for.
The pier at sunset: Lots of pan handlers

Things to do:
USS Midway Museum
Point Loma
Zoo
Seaworld
Beach!

Place was so relaxing and if you like to get up early, don't worry San Diego airport has the flights leaving at 6:31 every morning - however, that didn't bother us or the kids at all.

We'll be back for sure.

Adorable House

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time staying at this property. The house was clean, decorated beautifully and stocked with everything we needed. We enjoyed eating the avocados from the tree in the back yard and it was an easy walk to the beach. The owners were great to work with, very organized and helpful. We'll be back.

Great vacation home! We found this home extremely well equipped, from linens and beach toys, to a beautifully appointed kitchen. The quaintness of the sunroom, keyhole doorway, and front patio are awesome. The owners left no need unattended to. The location is so convenient to all the incredible sights of San Diego, including the nearby beaches, Sea World, the San Diego Zoo and Balboa Park. We loved the Wednesday night Farmer's Market on Newport too. We definitely plan on returning!

Beautiful, bombastico, relaxing to the maximo!

  • 5 of 5
I can't say enough great things about this little Ocean Beach gem. Cozy, creative use of space, awesome kitchen, sunroom, and picnicking areas -- complete with a giant, fruit-laden avocado tree! The cool stucco hues and front patio garden add to overall atmosphere of warmth and welcomeness. Not to mention that the owners were super easy to coordinate with, so friendly and attentive to detail. The location was incredible -- I found myself running to the beach or sunset cliffs every day, stretching and doing yoga, breathing in the cool OB breeze and soaking up the warm ocean sun. Even the morning rain showers (very rare, apparently!) were amazing, and even more amazing how quickly the day shifted back to blue skies and sunshine. It was so easy to get to the bars and restaurants without needing to drive. I recommend Bo Beaus, if you have time, just a few minutes walk down the street. Another great aspect was the location -- I was in San Diego for a training 25 miles north of the city. I couldn't believe how easy it was to make the morning/afternoon commute and get back to the beach to relax. Such an easy trip to and from the airport, too -- only about 10 minutes. If I'm back in San Diego for business or pleasure, alone or with family and friends, I will definitely stay here again! Thanks yall!
