Ocean Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-7)

** NO cleaning fees! **

Come stay at the beach in luxury. Large two bedroom, two bath home. We have gone over the top to make sure that our home is vacation heaven.

The beach is wide and clean. Tidepools are one block away. Swimming and surfing are two blocks away. Main lifeguard station and bathroom facilities are nearby. Great family beach. Epic surfing. Fishing pier for romantic sunset walks. Restaurants, shopping, antique shops, and souvenir shops are two blocks away.

The neighborhood is authentic, California beach town. Lots of restaurants, antique shops, and live entertainment. Sunset Cliffs has excellent trails for hiking, biking or exercise. We are also home to some deliciously yummy vegetarian and vegan restaurants (we are meat-eaters but we eat at the vegan restaurant often!)

In each bathroom there is a whirlpool bathtub. Each bedroom has a 32' flat screen TV with cable TV. The living room has a 40' flat screen TV and a well-stocked DVD library. Wireless internet is included.

This house is a duplex, one wall is shared.

About Tobi

Hi! I'm Tobi (from Los Angeles) and my husband is Andy (from Oklahoma). We met once we were both living in San Diego and love it here! The cottages are our family's investment for our 2-year old son Micah and our 1-year old son Jake. We have made many upgrades since we bought them. We love to see our guests return again and again, and have had the pleasure of accommodating our guests for everything from family vacations to special occasions like graduations, weddings, and births.

Tobi purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Tobi chose San Diego County

Ocean Beach has a special significance for us because our first date was at the famous 'Hodad's' in Ocean Beach. We now live nearby and our kids love going to OB to play in the sand, come for the 'OB Street Fair' each Wednesday, or take a walk in the stroller down Newport Ave. to window shop. We find it to be one of the quieter beach areas (less traffic and fewer tourists than Mission Beach) and we love that 'small-beach-feel'.

What makes this cottage unique

We love the location. With two small children, having to drive someplace or walk far would be tough. But when we stay at our cottage, we can walk to the beach, to shopping, to dinner, or even the grocery store. We also love the beds -- they are so comfortable that we bought the same ones for our home that we live in!

Centralized Location, All the Amenities

  • 5 of 5

Two parents, three kids, and a baby: everyone agrees it was the perfect match for our needs. A short walk to the beach, a short drive to the zoo. The house is very comfortable, feels like a home away from home. The ONLY thing I would recommend to visitors is to bring your own gallon of water. Rite-Aid up the street has a $0.35/gallon fill station. Other than the tap water, we had no complaints. Would highly recommend this place for rental!!

Modern and clean Beach house

  • 5 of 5

Great location, very clean and modern house with all the amenities needed. It was especially nice having a modern kitchen; laundry and two full bathrooms. We had visitors from Australia and they very much enjoyed their stay here.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We have travelled from the United Kingdom but the booking and engagement with Tobi was straight forward and professional. The house was so convenient for visiting all the spots of San Diego and beyond. The neighbourhood was close to Ocean Beach facilities and amenities but there was no noise late at night. The restaurants and bars were very good and a good range of tastes.

The beach and pier were lovely for a walk and just siting watching the world go by.

We came for a sunny, peaceful break and got just that.

Thanks Tobi and team.

Quiet neighborhood, close to beach, everything inside that we needed.

  • 5 of 5

The rental was clean and well-maintained, and the minor things we found were fixed surprisingly fast. Any problems were small and apparently not reported by previous guests. The host was very responsive to contacts, before, during and after the rental. We were two couples spending a week at OB (the best beach community in SD. Real folks live and play here.) and we had a great time. Plenty of good food and drink within walking distance; beaches, hiking, and biking in all directions; and a quiet place to chill. The cottage is plenty big for four adults, the kitchen has all the amenities we needed, and the bedrooms are large enough to live in without being fussy about neatness (we're on vacation!) The bathrooms are roomy with jetted tubs, but lack fans. Frequent breezes outside helped with ventilation. We were all very happy with our accommodations.

There is a small grocery, Olive Tree, two blocks up the street. Two blocks north is Newport Ave with all the food, drink, gifts, yoga, and other attractions you need. (Skip the Hodad burger. It's good, not great, and not worth the wait and cost, unless you want to impress your envious friends with a FB pic.) Azucar has very good coffee, tea, and morning sweets. The desserts look good, but we didn't make it back for that. South Beach Bar & Grill has a killer bar for having dinner and drinks as the sun sets over the ocean. For our travels away from OB we used Uber and Lyft. No parking hassles and cost, no car to fuel and return, and cheaper at the end of the week than renting a car. We also rode the light rail from downtown up to SDSU and back. Very convenient, frequent trains, cheap, and a good way to get to the malls if that is on your list.

Awesome vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival everything was perfect. The house was beautiful and the furnishings perfect. Everything was supplied that might be needed. The location is awesome as well. Quaint tiny town a few blocks away with everything from Starbucks to RiteAid. Beach was very close and far less crowded than more popular beaches further North. Took us minutes to drive to SeaWorld. Hope to stay here again another time!

Month in OB

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this vacation rental for the entire month of May - wish it could have been longer! The location cannot be beat! Three great restaurants within a block that are very busy all the time, but we never heard any noise from them. The unit was clean and equipped with everything one could need to settle in. Any concerns we had were taken care of in a very timely fashion. Also very important was that we had a dedicated parking spot as parking is a premium near the beach. The best part was that we were less than 1 mile from our daughter, son in law and their new baby girl! We will be back!
