BEACH HOUSE - DOG BEACH SAN DIEGO

  • 5 of 5
The house was block from beach, very accessible to local restaurants, shops and dog beach. The view from balcony was very beautiful, watching sunsets and sailboats go by, very peaceful. Rooms were very modern and the appliances were new. The owner was reachable all times, for any questions and super sweet! The price was right, the location was perfect and the vacation was memorable for the whole family. I would highly recommend this house as a vacation rental in San Diego, so close to everything.

Intrusive Owner - BEWARE

  • 2 of 5
The two stars are for that this is in fact a 3 bd 2 bath and was recently renovated. Other than that, I am honestly livid with the owner, Mary. Her and her husband own the apt building across the street and she has been up in our business since we got here. I've been here just over 24 hrs and I can't wait to leave. It honestly feels like she's watching you with a telescope. I was awoken by her complaining of my bf's car allegedly taking up 2 spots ON THE STREET. She woke me up to move the car 1.5 feet. Unbelievable! Also, the beds are extremely hard and the furniture is low-end Ikea. Not worth the money to be policed at all hours of the day and night. Avoid this property if you can!

Owner's Response: Jill,
Your review leaves us feeling terrible for having been the cause of any discomfort during your stay. We make every effort to try and forewarn our guests of potential parking issues. We hoped that a text in the early evening, the day before street cleaning would be the least invasive way to contact you and potentially keep you from receiving a hefty parking ticket in the early morning. We apologize for the intrusion. And thank you for choosing our home for your stay.

Dog Beach Vacation Rental

  • 4 of 5
This charming and updated home was the perfect getaway right on the beach for our family vacation. We loved the view and beach access directly from the backyard. The owner was responsive when we could not get the oven to work. She lives across the street, so it's great to have her close by in case she needs to address any issues, but she also seemed to invade on our space at times and we felt like we were being watched. Overall, however, we were satisfied and would consider this place again for future trips to Ocean Beach.

Beautiful, we'll-stocked house. Wonderful, lovely gated yard for our 2 dogs and porch and viewing of fireworks every evening from Seaworld! We loved the dog beach right outside the back gate and the town of ocean beach was very fun and friendly. The owner, Mary, was very helpful and gave great directions and suggestions in town. The only drawback; every few minutes an airplane flys over and it begins by 630am until 11 pm.

Delightful

  • 5 of 5
The house is comfortable, nicely decorated, and clean. We usually dine out on vacations but enjoyed the house so much that we stayed in for dinner one evening and made use of the sparkling clean gas grill on the deck. The owner was very helpful in recommending restaurants (Three Corner, Bo-Beau, and Hodads are all winners) and activities. We saw fireworks from Sea World every night from the roof top deck. We loved using the bikes and visiting dog beach. The location is hard to beat--right on the bike path, walking distance to Ocean Beach, next door to Mission Bay, ocean view from the roof deck. One possible drawback: It is under the flight path, so, we woke to airplanes taking off. Since we usually rise early, this was not a problem for us. The young adults in our party slept through it.

Great Place

Fantastic Place! We spent 5 days with family and enjoyed every minute there. Mary was very helpful and did everything she could to ensure our stay was stress free. Will be using this place on our next family visit to San Diego.
