About Julie Sullivan

Our mission is to provide a clean, safe, comfortable environment for families to have a fun vacation. We provide the place; you provide the memories.

Julie Sullivan purchased this townhome in 1989

Why Julie Sullivan chose Ocean Beach

Ocean Beach is a fun, friendly,relaxing place where people are free to walk around to go shopping, to the beach or dining. People are very friendly here, and there is a laid back atmosphere like no other that we have found.

What makes this townhome unique

This bungalow is close to everything that San Diego has to offer. Lots of things are going on at any time in San Diego, and this place is centrally located. The beach is only steps away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great location - Easy to get to beaches, food and shopping

  • 4 of 5

Great hosts. They made it very easy for us. The unit is stocked with all the things you need to enjoy the area. As with all of San Diego we had to get used to the early morning planes, but with the $1.95 pack of ear plugs, problem solved. For us, because we enjoy being able to explore by foot and enjoy a few beers, this was a great find. The beach is literally a half block away. We would recommend choosing this place.

Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

I loved staying in Ocean Beach. My husband and I brought our 2 year old to come and vacation for a week. It was a short walk to the beach and the room had beach toys and a cooler as well as beach chairs & towels. It was perfect. We rented a car (mostly because we wanted to use our car seat & keep our daughter safe) and went to all the major theme parks including SeaWorld, Legoland, the Zoo & Safari Park. Seaworld seemed right around the corner & the rest were easy drives. Julie even brought us a pack & play & clean sheets for our daughter to sleep. There was also a large fan to drown out any noises to keep her asleep. It was all super nice to have. This would be a perfect place to bring a dog, too, as it was right by dog beach. There were happy dogs everywhere! We were able to cook in to save money, but could walk a short distance to great restaurants, pizza, the pier and ice cream. Would certainly recommend this place. We want to go back!!

This place was amazing. Julie and Jerome thought of everything. Clean and comfortable. I would recommend this place to anyone. Close to the beach but away from the confusion of downtown. Quite complex

literally booked this a few days in advance. Close to the beach and felt safe and secure here. Would definitely recommend and will return. Julie and Jerome have provided the needed necessities such as toiletries and clean towels as well as beach towels, boogie boards beach toys. Parking can be tricky, but they made sure that I had a place prior to my arrival. Thanks again!

Car: not necessary

Only five blocks north of the Ocean Beach Pier and downtown Ocean Beach's main street, (Newport Avenue)

Many people do not even use a vehicle, they find that just walking or using the bicycles is more fun.

Don't miss the farmers market every Wednesday evening, and check out the surfing competitions going on frequently. Also there are many festivals that occur throughout the year.

If you do choose to drive around, downtown Gaslamp is 15 minutes away, and the airport is only 10 minutes away. The embarcadero is fun to walk around and the aircraft carrier stationed there, the USS Midway is now a wonderful museum with self guided tours. Little Italy is another great section of town for dining and walking around. San Diego is so packed with different neighborhoods that are each unique and offer a different type of experience you will want to return again and again to experience it all.

Other Activities: tidepooling, shelling
