Overview

Ocean Beach House Rental Photos and Description

San Diego, luxury home, 65 feet of ocean front property, 5 bedroom, 6 Bath

A private oasis overlooking the ocean, outstanding views from every room.

This unique home is three levels sitting on the edge of the ocean. 30 feet above the Pacific on a bluff, this ultimate ocean front vacation rental is located 1 1/2 blocks south of the Ocean Beach Pier. It is fresh, new (4 years old,) modern, contemporary and beautiful. It features slate and bamboo wood floors throughout and boasts one of the largest ocean front back yards in all of San Diego — 65 feet wide and 30 feet to the house. The blues, greens and aquas of the modern decor, enhance the spectacular ocean views. Each bedroom has its own private deck and private bathroom. Other amenities include WiFi internet connection, one central flat screen TV, DVDs, Wii, and a regulation size pool table. Park your 2 vehicles in the attached garage.

The back garden is an oasis of unmatched beauty and functionality. Large enough to seat many people comfortably, it features a blue glass fire pit, large concrete bench, tables, chairs, and a 65 foot glass fence providing you with unobstructed views of the ocean and pier with additional views of the Mission Beach jetty and beaches to the north. Watch locals and tourists on the sandstone below explore the tide pools and gather to watch the setting sun. The foliage has been carefully crafted with native succulents and salt resistant plants. 1/4 of the yard is a grassy area for badminton, games or play.

Level One

The first floor features a kitchenette with sink, ice maker, refrigerator and dishwasher. There are 3 switch/remote controlled fans and gas fireplace along with a pool table, making it the perfect gathering place. This floor has a comfortable, contemporary memory foam sleeper sofa (no bars on the bed, all memory foam) and two elevated, fold out, twin memory foam beds in the family room area. The bedroom on this level has one twin bed and a queen bed. There is a private bathroom attached to the bedroom, with an additional powder room down the hall. The laundry room is on the first level. Level one has direct access to the back yard.

Level Two

This floor has a powder room with large tiled shower. The bedroom “the Piano room” features contemporary decor showcasing a baby grand piano, a queen bed, a private bathroom and private deck for ocean viewing. Next is the spacious kitchen with Dacor oven and all the amenities and accessories you need to cook meals for 14 or more people. There are 5 bar stools and dining to seat 8-10. The dining room is the showpiece of the second level with a Joshua Marshall Drops of Rain pendant chandelier. Sit here and enjoy sunset each day of your stay, as you linger over a home cooked meal. The living room seats 8 with 2 love seats and two swivel chairs, and two ottomans -- HDTV, DVD player, Wii and games. Step off onto the second floor deck with your coffee and watch the pelicans fly by.

Level Three

You won’t even care what the master bedroom looks like. You’ll only have eyes for the view of the ocean. You won’t want to leave — you’ll feel like you are on a ship. It will take your breath away. This room has windows everywhere, a queen bed, a private master bathroom, tub, shower and closet. Yes, it only has one sink but you can make it work for you. As if if that isn’t enough, you have your own private deck waiting for you. Additionally, a kitchenette with sink, refrigerator and dishwasher.

A second smaller bedroom is on the 3rd floor with a queen bed, private bathroom and deck. This bedroom has ocean views and a 180 degree view of the city lights of Point Loma. Perfect for the early riser to enjoy sunrise.

Take a look at our sister property on VRBO #373133. You can see we've been renting out property in Ocean Beach over 3 years, with excellent reviews.

About Karen Wilson-Bonnar

Now our children are living lives of their own, we are downsizing to a smaller home and renting this lovely place as a vacation rental.

Karen Wilson-Bonnar purchased this house in 2010

Why Karen Wilson-Bonnar chose Ocean Beach

The views are unparalleled.

What makes this house unique

The property has a walk score of 65. I think it should be higher. There are so many amenities you can walk to -- Olive Tree Market, restaurants, pubs, the beach, shopping, the post office, salons, spas, tidepools and so much more.

AMAZING... Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
Three couples from all different places and two toddlers and this location is perfect!
Everyone had their own bedroom, bathroom and the entire backyard is enclosed for safety for the toddlers.
The guys all rented fishing poles and went fishing on the pier for bonding time, we even had a family barbeque with our family from Orange County and there was so much room and the view is just spectacular!
We had plans to go to the zoo but loved the property so much we decided to stay at the house and enjoy the amenities and view... it was also wonderful that so many things were within walking distance.
There wasn't one thing that we felt we were missing the entire time we were there... we highly recommend this house for a girls weekend (which we are trying to plan) or even a family getaway again!
It was a fabulous vacation!

Ocean front bliss

  • 5 of 5
I threw a 70th birthday party for my sister, and 40 of her closest friends! What a fabulous venue. The views from all three levels are just amazing. The home is exquisite, very clean, and comfortable, even with 40 people! The owners are wonderful, and we're very helpful. Six of us stayed over night, and enjoyed wine by the fire pit and all the other amenities, including, great cheeseburgers from Hodads, over looking the surf! It doesn't get any better.
We will return again, and again, and highly recommend this property.

Life can be a beach at times

A perfect home in a perfect location with a perfect setting for a perfect vacation. Have I said how perfect this home is for an ideal fun time !! The home is immaculate, spacious, with breathtaking views, and all the amenities one would need for a relaxing vacation. We enjoyed breakfast on the second level deck watching the waves roll in, cocktails on the third level deck for the daily ritual of watching the magnificent sunsets, and capping the evening around the fire pit enjoying s'mores with the grandkids. The home is spacious and ultra clean. With 4 bedrooms, sleeper sofas, and 5 baths, our large family of 13 never felt crowded or intruding. The owners, Karen and Bill, are so very gracious and accommodating and always accessible. It was a most memorable week sharing it with our family as we celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary. No one wanted to leave. We highly recommend it. You will not be disappointed.

Simply Amazing - Exquisite Home, Fantastic Owners and Breathtaking Views

  • 5 of 5
Beyond our wildest dreams, the photos are REAL it's even better in person, super clean well organized easy and FAST communication during all phases of the rental. Once you experienced this property and the owner / managers you'll be spoiled for life. We had 12 adults super comfortable, plenty of room with so many amenities it was hard to leave the home. We wished we had more days in paradise our group enjoyed the fire pit and sunsets every night. We had the quality time together and thanks to House by the Ocean (& Homeowners) our stay was magical! We'd book again and highly recommend this property.

Our family stayed in House by the Ocean 10/3/2014 to 10/11/2014, with 12 adults and 3 small children.

PROS –
• House was gorgeous and exquisite
• Wonderfully clean
• View of Pacific was beautiful
• Excellent value
• Everything was as advertised, even better.
• 5.5 baths were very helpful with our large group.
• We slept 2 couples downstairs on a queen bed and 2 fold-out ottomans, which made for comfortable accommodations.
• The fire pit was a hit.
• The location in San Diego was excellent, with <15 minutes of driving to most of the places of interest for us.
• Owners, Karen and Bill, are honest and thoughtful, going above and beyond for our needs.
• House was stocked well, including shampoo and shower gel (nice touch).
• Beautiful Sunset Cliffs natural park was a few blocks away – why did we wait till the last day to go there?

CONS –
• No A/C. Our first day had perfect low humidity weather, but subsequent days were more humid, and with the warm weather, the house was a little warm on the upper floors for the first few hours after bedtime
• Ocean Beach has a character of its own that was a little foreign to us, and perhaps we experienced a little culture shock, with the old surfer dudes and homeless people. Dog beach and the nearby pier were less than desirable, but these issues in no way diminish the value of the rental.
• The kitchen sink backed up, but Bill was there the next morning and got it fixed. He even washed our dishes from dinner the night before. Over and above the call of duty… Thanks, Bill and Karen!
• Parking, as advertised, was very difficult for our third vehicle on the weekends, sometimes taking up to 30 minutes to find a reasonable parking spot within 4 blocks.

HIGHLIGHTS for us Arkansas folk –
• Sunset Cliffs natural park
• Midway aircraft carrier museum
• Mt. Soledad
• Cabrillo national monument with fabulous view of San Diego bay and Pacific ocean
• La Jolla cove
• Children’s pool beach
• San Diego Zoo
• Surrey ride around Hotel del Coronado
• Gaslamp district of San Diego
• Walking along harbor behind San Diego convention
• Sitting with family around the den and around the fire pit in the evening.
• View of Pacific Ocean, waves crashing into rocks just beyond our back yard – Amazing!

Overall, we were extremely pleased with this house, and the owners were exceptional. I am glad to give this rental my highest recommendation!

Owner's Response: Thank you for being great guests, Jim, and your patience with the plumbing. I am glad you discovered Sunset Cliffs natural park. One of our absolute favorites. San Diego with its incredible weather coupled with being a big city, attracts a contingent of homelessness. Thank you for the feedback on parking. We are working toward making a 3rd space available.

So Peaceful, Had A Hard Time Leaving

  • 5 of 5
This OB getaway is an oasis. Spectacular views, the rooms are spotless, bathrooms are clean, the beds are a comfortable, nice pool table, and a fully stocked kitchen. The house is steps from the beach, great food, and the pier. We had more than ample room to sleep our entire group. Our favorite part was the fireplace on the deck at sunset. Absolutely spectacular! It's a little piece of heaven. Can't wait to go back
