Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom sleeps 5

Your balcony boasts an oceanfront view of crashing waves, the O.B. Pier, and lights of La Jolla at night. Enjoy breathtaking views from the kitchen, dining, living and master bedroom. Surf sounds lull you to sleep & refresh you in the morning. Set 15 paces from a cliff overlooking the pounding surf, few properties can put you this close to the ocean experience.

This mellow beach town is known for its laid back attitude. You're only 3 blocks to the beach, or 4 to OB’s main street for lattes, sensational omelets, or renowned fish tacos. OB offers a wide range of activities: authentic Mexican restaurants; Farmers’ Market; antiquing; and a myriad of beach activities.

Spotless and professionally decorated, this is not the normal rental. Furnished for ourselves, it boasts quality furniture, travertine and granite, gourmet kitchen, espresso machine, R.O. faucet, IPOD speakers, quality linens, and down bedding to enhance your stay.

Rates w/ add-ons:

Early Fall & Winter_Spring $1751.97 E Spring $2304.48 Peak $2635.97 Fall $1530.98

$600 of rental fee at booking........remaining amount at 60 days prior

Perfect Atmosphere for Every Vacationer: This quiet neighborhood is mostly locals, and few people ever walk in front of your view, unlike the party atmosphere prevalent in many other beach towns. It's perfect for a romantic get away for a couple, or a weary family returning from a day of sight-seeing or the beach. We've also hosted numerous 'girls weekends' with rave reviews: it's comfortable enough to lounge around all day, the main street is casual and close, and the Gas Light district is convenient for nightlife, too.

Many Amenities Included: We want you to thoroughly enjoy yourselves while you're our guests. Amenities such as candles, coffee, tea, spices and basic cooking items are included, as well as enough paper products for your entire stay, condiments in the refrigerator, and laundry supplies.

About Sharon Kearns

John & Sharon live in Phoenix. John grew up in Point Loma, just over the hill from Ocean Beach. His family had deep roots here, and he spent his summers and weekends sailing and surfing in and around San Diego. He swears he kissed his first girl on the rocks below the condo!

Sharon Kearns purchased this condo in 2001

Why Sharon Kearns chose Ocean Beach

'It's ON the water!'

We first stumbled onto this property when we were renting nearby one summer. John pushed Sharon to make an offer. Slower to bite, Sharon talked to many friends and relatives about the purchase. Almost without exception their response was , 'but it's ON the water!' It became a standing joke: why would you not buy a property with this view?

What makes this condo unique

The view and the balcony are priceless. there's enough room to be comfortable, enough privacy to hang out in your pajamas, and 180 degrees of ocean. Whether it's blue skies, turquoise water, and sailboats racing, sunset with red-orange light and a green flash, or an angry ocean with 20' swells and a layer of salt on the railing, we are constantly experiencing the power and majesty of the ocean.

Fabulous and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Sharon & John for sharing your condo. It is just as beautiful and comfortable as your descriptions & pictures show. Everything about the condo is wonderful. My husband & I spent 1 week in Oct. at the condo & loved every minute. We loved it so much we just got home from another week there.

In Oct. we walked everywhere, ate at the Blue Parrot twice, the Puerto Nuevo Shrimp is unbelievable good. We shopped at the Farmers Market and strolled through all the local shops. We used our rental car 3 times in a week. To get to the condo from the airport, to go to the grocery store and then back to the airport. We were always back on the deck for the sunsets and then I would cook dinner in the fully equipped and well laid out kitchen.

In Dec. the storms were awesome. We watched the waves hitting the pier & the rain from inside the condo. We walked alot, when the weather permitted. We ate out only once, at The Blue Parrot and ate the same shrimp again. I love to cook and their kitchen is a pleasure to cook in. My husband and I enjoyed the big TV with the DVR. We could zip through commercials or record shows for later. At bedtime the big down comforters on the beds are so warm and snugly it was hard to get up in the morning.

When we came home in Oct. we got rid of our coffee maker because we liked theirs so much better , we had to get one just like theirs. Today I went and got a new hairdryer because the one they provide for guests is so much nicer than what I own.

There is only one reason I didn't want to write this review... I was afraid the condo would always be rented and we wouldn't be able to stay there again. It's beautiful, we can't wait to go back again.

Thank you, thank you, thank you....

Owner's Response: Kay has been back two more times since she wrote this review! She timed one visit so she could be here for 2 Wednesday nights, the night the Farmers' Market takes over the main street of O.B. Be sure to taste the homemade chocolate: to die for!

The views are amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Right on the water as advertised. Most fully stocked kitchen I have encountered on vrbo - spices and staples in the pantry. Beds are comfortable and baths are updated nicely. Kitchen and living room furniture have been updated since photos. VERY quality furnishings. Only downside - brought our smallest car and it was so tight in the garage, we just used the place in the lot across the street. That was more convenient anyway. Loved this rental!

Owner's Response: We love our return guests! Nice to know our remodel meets with their approval. We pride ourselves in a very well stocked kitchen, and from guests’ comments that must not be a common vacation rental experience.

Will come back every chance I get!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this place for my mothers birthday and we both loved it! I have stayed in several condos from Ocean Beach to Carlesbad and this is by far my favorite! It is clean, comfortable, amazing view, well taken care of and close to everything! I have paid more for far less amenities and space!

Rent this place you will love it!!

Great rental!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! While firmly planted in OB, this property has upscale elements that belie its pocket friendly rate and perfect location. The owner has done a wonderful job in providing first rate amenities such as great cutlery, stocked kitchen, comfy bed and plenty of everything! Great to work with as well....I'll be back...I hope!
