About Lisa

We hope to make this our vacation home once we retire. In the mean time we invite you to use our home away from home!

Lisa purchased this condo in 2006

Why Lisa chose Ocean Beach

The moment we found our home I knew we had to have it.

LOCATION......LOCATION! The pounding surf and views are mesmerizing.

What makes this condo unique

Even though San Diego has so much to offer..... we just park the car and enjoy everything in walking distance.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved your condo. It was everything we expected. We loved your patio and watching the amazing ocean. We barbecued every night and loved watching the sunset. We have four kids and it was such a great experience for all of us. We can't wait to come back every spring break.

Thank you

Great place to visit OB

  • 5 of 5

This place is not only right on the cliffs above the ocean, but very close to the pier and main beach, as well as central Ocean Beach (anything you want or need - groceries, restaurants, bars - even micro breweries are all within easy walking). I'm not a jogger or even big walker, but I did walk the entire Sunset Cliffs everyday from this location. Location wise, you can't get much more in the middle of the dartboard with this one. The dwelling itself was well furnished/equipped and clean (we are a family of four that entertained my extended family members several times during this visit - very nice patio and outdoor furniture for that). Since I'm from OB, I take my wife/kids out to visit my extended family every year, and the family consensus was unanimous that this was the best VRBO yet (I was kind of surprised when the wife told me that she hoped this one would be available next year, with my 14-year-old daughter parroting the same sentiment). Since we've stayed in some pretty nice VRBO places these last few years and this comment was made in the throws of travel hassle preparing to leave, I thought it meaningful enough to leave here as a review. Enjoy.

Relaxing and Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We had a girls' weekend away and had such a lovely stay. The house was charming with every amenity imaginable and the view was amazing. As long as one is aware that it is in the direct flight path from 6:00 am -10:00 pm then it shouldn't be an issue. We would definitely come back here again!

Great spot for relaxing in OB

  • 5 of 5

Excellent spot for casual relaxation in Ocean Beach. We enjoyed some fantastic sunsets, as well as easy walks to the beach, tidepools, and the OB village. Beds were comfy and we appreciated the beach towels, chairs, and umbrella. Loved sitting out on the patio enjoying the weather and waves.

Great home and hospitality, likely would not stay in area again though

  • 5 of 5

We had no complaints about our house, beds were comfortable, patio was fun and breezy (no privacy from condo next door though) the home was a little hot as temperatures reached 100 and there was no air conditioning. Had to call to ask for help as the pilot lights on the heater were adding heat to the already warm house (could have been shut off prior) but Temp is out of their control so did not dock on rating, was able to shut off pilot lights on heaters and it helped immediately. Home was well stocked. Glasses did have lipstick marks from prior guests and were quiet "foggy" from dishwasher but we washed them up and no issue. If I could pick up this cute place and move it I would stay again as the manger was nice to work with and they even let us check in early, however, the ocean beach area seemed very run down, many homeless on the pathways etc. It did not feel very safe compared to the other areas we were in. I would never bring my children to this area and likely will never visit again myself. I would suggest considering paying a little more and staying in mission or pacific beach for peace of mind. Again, I had no real issue with the house and hope they do not take my opinion personal as i'm sure it was a nice area at one time, we did appreciate their hospitality. If you are comfortable with the area then by all means book here, if its a time of year you don't need air conditioning!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I am glad you enjoyed our condo. Sorry that the weather was very warm and humid! All of us were uncomfortable. Usually, air conditioning is not necessary because we have a nice breeze. Not so much during your stay. Also, sorry that the eclectic neighborhood was not comfortable for you. It is a step back into the 60's. Will check on the dishwasher as to why glasses were not cleaner. I appreciate your comments and will try to make adjustments where possible. Maria

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

It was nice to retreat to the beach, yet be so close to many places we wanted to go to. The sound of the waves and ocean were a relaxing tribute within the city.

Great Get Away!

  • 4 of 5

The location is perfect and the condo exceeded our expectations! We had a wonderful time spending evenings on the patio letting the kids run around. The pots and pans are older, well- used, and choices are limited. But we made it work. It was hot and humid the first couple days but the fans helped. We would definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to comment on your stay. Glad you had a good time in San Diego and at Ocean Front Escape. Thanks to your review I took a closer look at our pots and pans and you were so right. We have new cookware plus added a few more choices. I hope you will come back and cook up a storm! Thank you Maria
