Balboa Park is fifteen minutes away with museums and gardens.Torrey pines golf course is just minutes away, and lots of championship courses are close by.

About The Owner

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.

The Owner purchased this townhome in 1989

Why The Owner chose San Diego County

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

Living here for the past 6 months has been a real dream come true in so many ways. Thanks for making this possible Julie & Jerome-

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.

The perfect spot on Ocean Beach!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about this property or our hosts. The bungalow is perfectly appointed, clean and well as very comfortable. We were there during a relative heat wave, but stayed cool and happy throughout or stay. I would not hesitate to come back, though next time I would love to stay longer!!!! Thank you Julie and Jerome!

In a quiet area yet in the middle of it all

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here- The condo is an extremely short 1 or 2 minute walk from the beach. It's in a quiet area but in the middle of all that Ocean Beach has to offer. My daughter and I felt cozy and safe and they stocked their condo with everything that one would need and more! We made daily use of the boogie boards and I was impressed to see that they even had lawn chairs and an umbrella. I had left some clothing items behind and before I even noticed they were missing Julie had contacted me to let me know she would get them in the mail. I received them in less than a week that we departed from San Diego. Thank you so much Julie! We will definitely be booking again and I hope that there will be availabilities.

Great little apartment by the beach

  • 5 of 5

Julie and Jerome were amazing hosts for our long-term stay in Ocean Beach. Julie met us at the door when we arrived (even though we were late) and was always just a phone call or text away if we needed her. Jerome was handy and helpful with anything we needed fixed during our stay (which wasn't much of anything). Both were welcoming, friendly, and made us feel right at home, even setting up DVR for us before we arrived!

The condo is pretty small, however, the location cannot be beat. Literally half a block from the beach, in the heart of OB, less than half a mile to all the local restaurants and little beach shops you could ask for. (We recommend OB Noodle House, Nico's Mexican Food, Cafe Bella, Surfrider Pizza, and Wonderland for the sunset toasts!) Parking is street parking only, but even with working nights and weekly street sweeping, I never had a problem finding a spot.

We stayed from late September to mid January and the condo only got really warm the first week we were there when it was 100+ degree weather. They do have ceilings fans and a portable fan for when it does get hot. The property was large enough for two people who love each other :) but I wouldn't recommend having a ton of guests over, unless you're going to be roaming around outside.

We loved staying at Julie and Jerome's place! Definitely can't be beat if you're looking to live close to the ocean.

very nice, excellent location, easy to deal with owner

  • 5 of 5

I liked it a lot! they really do have everything there that you'll need to enjoy a week at the beach. We had planned a week of going on day trips across southern CA, but wound up barely leaving Ocean Beach.

I wouldn't worry about the airplane noise, it slows down during the afternoons and stops at night. Plus the local papers said the FAA & the city just had meetings on re-routing some of the flight paths and they were optimistic about some noise reduction happening. Overall the apartment was very quiet. l would suggest as others have that the couch be looked at, it's not the best to sit on much less sleep on.

I'd rent it again if I ever get to that part of the US in the future. ,

Owner's Response: We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay! Many people that live here stay really close and don't leave this town. I will definitely look at the couch, maybe it is time for a change; I like it, but to be fair, I am not very big. We look forward to seeing you again!

The perfect getaway!

Great location in Ocean Beach. Close to restaurants and beach. The property was very clean and well-maintained. The owners are hospitable and have thought of everything. Parking can be a bit of a challenge but not insurmountable. We can't wait to go back!

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
