Ocean Beach Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1 Bath (Sleeps 6)

This comfortable beach condo has been completely renovated (and dog proofed) with stainless steel kitchen, Italian-tile floors, marbleized bathroom, and patio. Go out the back gate onto dog beach for an off-leash stroll with your pooch (all breeds) 24/7.

Enjoy the Snowy Egrets, pelicans, ducks, and sandpipers in the estuary; meander along the bike path for other birdwatching or use the one bike; a two-minute walk West along the bike path to the public (no-dog) beach and surfing, boogie boarding (four on site), or just watch the surf crash on the rocks. Walk two minutes East to the skate-board park and wild-life viewing.

The main shopping area of 'OB' (Ocean Beach) is within walking distance, including antique row. So is fishing off the OB pier or surfing alongside it. Restaurants range from the quick-and-cheap to on-the-waterfront-moderately-pricey. There are many nightspots. You will not want to miss this last-of-the-original beach town atmosphere complete with street fair every Wednesday.

Ocean Beach is centrally located. It is a ten-minute drive to Mission Valley shopping malls, Sea World, Balboa Park, Old Town, Downtown San Diego, Petco Park, Qualcomm Stadium, and the main airport. It is 20 minutes to the Tiajuana border, Wild Animal Park, and LegoLand.

About Sharron

Hi. I'm a retired lawyer. My hobbies are playing duplicate bridge and watching football...not at the same time! I completely renovated this unit, inside and out, a few years ago. It was a true labor of love so it is near to my heart. I try to maintain it in top condition. It's near to most places you'd want to visit in San Diego and borders the beach. The Wild Animal Park and the Tiajuana border are about 20-30 minutes away. Naval bases are 10-12 minutes. It's about a mile off Interstate 8 that connects with the other freeways. I love Ocean Beach. It's one of the original So. California beach towns.

Sharron purchased this condo in 1997

Why Sharron chose San Diego County

There's just no place like Ocean Beach in my eyes. I love it here. It's a very relaxed natural atmosphere; no 'artificial environment' like you find in some other communities. I walked my dogs on Dog Beach every Friday afternoon for 25 years. Finally, I knew I had to make it permanent. Ocean Beach as a community is very dog-friendly. There are even some outdoor dining establishments that allow your dog to lie at your feet while you dine. And there are some dog-centric events such as the annual 'weiner-dog' races on Dog Beach. There's a Farmer's Market every Wednesday afternoon and lots of community events such as kite-flying in March, christmas parade, beach-blanket bingo,and sand castles after Thanksgiving, etc..

Relaxing Holiday Weekend

  • 4 of 5

My wife & I took our 2 dogs to Dog Beach for the Labor Day Weekend. We stayed 4 nights & were joined by 1 other adult with her 2 dogs. We had concerns that the home would be too small, but there is plenty of room inside & also the adjoining rear yard and covered patio area was large enough to accommodate us. The main bedroom is roomy and has small desk, big closet & flatscreen TV. The secondary bedroom has 2 beds & big closet. The kitchen & refrigerator were more than adequate & we cooked most of our meals there. There is also both Keurig & standard coffee maker. The toaster didn't work well & should be replaced. Having only 1 bathroom and 3 adults presented its challenges, but all in all, the property was well maintained & adequate for our stay. As most others have reported, the owner lives onsite in upstairs unit & the rental is downstairs with only a view looking out into the rear yard (not the beach). However, you can see a little bit over the fence of the city lights across the channel & that was nice. As also noted in most reviews, there's a rear gate that leads directly to the surrounding beach and wetland area that provides primo access to anywhere you want to go (Dog Beach, Wetlands trails, etc). From the rear gate, you have a commanding view of the area beaches, wetlands, ocean, and even Sea World, who had nightly fireworks to entertain us. The few downsides to our trip were: When we arrived, temp inside unit was 80 degrees, so we turned on the AC. However, after several minutes we realized it was only blowing hot air (temp actually increased two degrees) and turned it off. We later learned there isn't AC, so we were relegated to using the ceiling fans (dated, but sufficient) & some floor fans that are provided (some worked, some don't). You would think at the beach that the temp inside would be comparable to the outside temp, but this unit is very warm inside. Also, I wasn't thrilled with the parking situation. While there is 1 dedicated parking space for the unit inside the carport, the owner parks in adjoining space so there isn't much room for 2 cars (we could barely open our car doors & packing/unpacking was tricky). As for street parking, forget it. Very hard to get. I noticed the same cars parked in front of unit & across the street for entire stay (never moved), and we had to park our 2nd car several houses away. Lastly, furniture & beds are very uncomfortable, but there are 2 decent recliner chairs in living room.

Owner's Response: This unit is on the beachfront and gets a lovely ocean breeze. I live on the 2d and 3d floors which can get hot because the heat rises. But I open the windows and the breeze flows right through and keeps everything quite cool and pleasant. The rental unit has two French doors that open onto the patio/backyard. Each has two side panels that open to safety screens and allow that beautiful breeze to drift through the unit keeping it quite comfortable. But, for some reason, these folks kept the windows shut or open only a tiny bit...even after I suggested they open them. I'm sorry they were hot but that could have been avoided by simply opening up the unit to the ocean breeze. As for the toaster...I'm guessing they tried to use the toaster/broiler oven. But I don't understand why they didn't use the brand new toaster that is sitting on the counter. The current tenants say it works fine.

Awesome Dog Beach Rental!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, our water obsessed english pointer and I stayed here for a month earlier this year. We both were working from Sharon's condo as well and we had plenty of space to conduct our business. Our dog was obsessed from the moment we got there, the property has a direct path to the dog beach where she wanted to spend all of her time! When we weren't working or at the dog beach, we spent our time visiting the local OB establishments which were very accommodating to dogs. Sharon is a fabulous host and was always available to answer any question we may have. I highly recommend anyone with a water obsessed dog stay at this perfect location.

Perfect Dog Friendly Rental

  • 5 of 5

This property is in a great location. Very convenient short walk to dog beach. Wonderful to have a private backyard to let the dogs retreat to. Plenty of space inside, and ample parking for even a large truck! Owner checked in to make sure everything was satisfactory.

Dog Nirvana

  • 5 of 5

Our trips to OB are all about the Dogs and this property is custom made for that. Access to the beach couldn't be easier. The house is roomy and clean. Way better than the dog hotel a few doors away. Yes all of OB is under the airport flight path. Doesn't bother us at all. Sharron is a terrific hostess.

Fabulous location and accommodations especially for dog lovers

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Ocean Beach. The location is perfect if you have dogs that love the ocean. Sharron was so kind and the facility had everything we needed. It was wonderful to sit outside for our morning coffee. Fireworks are visible nightly from SeaWorld. We definitely will be returning. Thanks Sharron!
