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.

Great Beach House

  • 5 of 5
We loved this little house on the beach. My kids would walk outside of the backyard gate to the beach in the morning to see all the cool dogs. The house had plenty of space. The only issue was the airplane noise can get loud with the windows opened. I wake up early so it did not affect my sleep and my kids slept through the noise just fine.

We had an excellent stay. The house is ideally located on the beach. It's clean, updated, and well stocked. No complaints whatsoever!

Repeat renter

  • 5 of 5
I have rented this house with the previous owner (Kelly). I was curious as to what changes the new owner had made. There were little touches here and there, but overall we were pleased. The house was cleaner than previous rentals. The front yard was redone and is much cleaner and open. Torn up patio seats were replaced and was very happy to see a new clean bbq grill (although we didn't use it)! I found Mary to be pleasant and helpful. She returned my calls immediately and answered all questions.

The house itself is perfectly located to reach all major attractions in SD. I love this area for the abundance of small restaurants (walking distance) and access to the dog beach. If you're a people watcher, there is always a parade in the back yard. Upstairs balcony is a gem.

The house is minimally furnished and uncluttered. Plenty of towels, linens, kitchen supplies, entertainment items. Appliances are new and modern. I am picky about bathrooms, and both were very clean. The fresh sunflowers that greeted us were a nice touch!

The front street can be a little noisy at night (depends on what you're used to), and driveway only fits one car (you will have difficulty trying to park on the street). The outside lights are on a timer, which is a good idea and makes the place feel safer.

Overall, we enjoyed the stay and will definitely return (work permitting).

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.
