Everything has been remodeled to bring this bungalow style home up to date. Recessed lighting, newly remodeled kitchen and bathroom, new double windows.

The Owner purchased this townhome in 1989
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.
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.
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-
See you again-Tej Kerhonkson, NY
Julie and Jerome were very helpful and wonderful hosts during our stay. The place was super clean, cute and well stocked with everything you would need for a great vacation. The bed was super comfortable and the location was prime for walking to the beach and all around OB. Thank you for sharing your cottage by the sea. We had a super fun and relaxing week long vacation.

This cottage is in a great location; only 1/2 block from the beach. Julie is very accommodating and helpful. The cottage was clean and well equipped, even down to sunscreen and shampoo!. Being able to rent Julie's bikes (for a very small fee) was very convenient and a great way to get around town without using a car. Nice patio in front and a BBQ too. Very quiet area . I would definitely stay there again.
This was a great place to stay for us! Julie and Jerome were very accommodating and helpful. We loved being able to walk to the beach anytime we wanted. The place was very clean, fully equipped and comfortable. I was very nervous about staying here, expecting that if this was even a real place that it may be a terrible experience, but I was very wrong! Everything about it was great! We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others.
This townhome offers tons of convenience - from location (ideally situated between La Jolla and Coronado) to all the thoughtful touches the owners put into it. There were tons of amenities and it is very clean. It's a five minute walk to the beach and is located in probably once of the friendliest neighborhoods in SD. My only concern was the noise from the air traffic. Normally this wouldn't bother me, but I had to be on a few conference calls while there and the air traffic was easily picked up by my microphone. If I didn't have to work while there, it wouldn't have bothered me at all. All around a great place and I would definitely stay again!
Loved the deco and homey feeling ! Thanks for a wonderful stay !
Overall our stay in this cute Ocean Beach duplex was pleasant and relaxing. The drawbacks: dirty carpet, uncomfortable sofa, unusable sofa bed and a lack of privacy. While the owners do a terrific job of providing a clean property overall, the carpet really turned us off. I'd get rid of it and put down hard flooring :) The sofa simply needs to be replaced. About the privacy... to stay cool you need to keep the windows open since there is no A/C or ceiling fan. (The owners provide a portable fan which we moved from room to room). With the other side of the duplex occupied, and other neighbors in close proximity, we felt somewhat exposed. We also worried that we would bother others! A window A/C unit or window fan would solve the problem... just so you don't have to leave the windows open. It's also a little insecure feeling at night, but we did not have any problems.
There are many good things!! Great little kitchen, with a dishwasher, and pretty well-equipped. The skillets were really bad... I'd take my own next time. If you don't intend to cook it's not a problem. I cooked once or twice every single day. The fridge is old and crusty but it works like a charm. So does the cute little gas stove which is an oldie but goodie. Also good... I mean great!... is the bedroom. It's the coolest room and has a very comfortable bed. There is no TV in the bedroom which was no problem for us. I had my laptop and the owners provide WiFi, so on a couple of evenings we watched a Netflix show. The bathroom is very nice, too, and well stocked. I had to wash towels a few times, but the washer and dryer are just outside the unit. (They are pretty crusty, too, but that's what happens outside near the ocean. I was just glad to have them.)
The location of this property is wonderful... so close to the beaches (including the dog beach) and all the shops and restaurants. We walked just about everywhere. It was important to plan the grocery runs so that we did not have to move the car over the weekend. With no dedicated parking you are on your own to find a spot on the street. Mostly it's not a problem, but on the weekends the throngs of people flocking to the area to enjoy the beaches will take all the available parking. Just park and stay put on Saturday and Sunday!
Walk to the TeMana Cafe on Voltaire St. in the morning for breakfast and coffee. Really good food, very friendly people, and they love dogs... my kind of people. Another favorite: the fish tacos at South Beach
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.
