Overview

Ocean Beach Condo Rental Photos and Description

Right on the water!

Eye-popping views from this 2 bedroom/2 bath ocean front condo, about as close to the water as you can get. Feel like you're sitting on top of the ocean, with forever vistas across the sparkling Pacific, and nothing to obstruct your view except the occasional line of pelicans. Sounds of crashing waves reverberate throughout, and quiet mornings with just you, the fog, and the whitewater will bleed away any stress from the outside world. Later, sit on the balcony with a cocktail and watch the surfers ride the glassy afternoon swells, or relax in your king bed and watch for whales and dolphins.

This condo is beautifully furnished, with state of the art kitchen and bathrooms, and very comfortable beds. Enjoy your 55' HDTV and blu-ray player. King sized bed in the oceanfront master bedroom, and queen-sized bed in the second bedroom. Each bedroom has its own bathroom for privacy. The views are to die for--in the evening, watch the orange sun descend over the endless ocean while pelicans fly low over the waves, and the last surfers of the day look for the one perfect ride back to shore. Explore the tidepools below, or if you're feeling brave, head out yourself to the well-known surfing spot immediately below your balcony (note, it's not for beginners).

The best advertisement we can make for this beautiful place is to mention the very large numbers of repeat guests that we have--they know that once you discover a good thing, you don't let it go!

This home is located in Ocean Beach, San Diego's most unique beach town. OB is a small community of fantastic restaurants, antique stores, and artistic residents. It is also the closest beach community to the heart of San Diego, being only 10 minutes from the airport and 15 minutes from downtown. All restaurants, bars, and shopping are within a 10 minute walk, as well as smaller grocery stores. Park in the underground garage, and don't get in your car again until you leave!

We believe in truth in advertising. All pictures in this ad were taken in or from the unit, with the exception of the last two. Second to last picture taken at Bermuda pocket beach 2 blocks from unit. Last picture taken at main OB beach, 10 minute walk from unit.

NOTE: We do not advertise on Craigslist. If you are seeing this ad on Craigslist, it is a scam. Please go to https://www.vrbo.com/427328 to legitimately book.

About Steve Rodgers

We are long time San Diego residents, and intimately familiar with all the beach communities here. While all the San Diego beach neighborhoods have their charms, OB is special to us. The reasons are many--its small-town feel, its eclectic residents, its famously un-snooty yet fantastic restaurants, its weird/cool vibe, and its breathtaking ocean views. So when it came time to purchase, there was only one area we'd consider, and that is Ocean Beach. We love the idea of allowing others to experience the same joy we feel by staying in this magical place.

Why Steve Rodgers chose San Diego County

My wife and I simply love ocean beach, which is so different from any of the other beach communities. OB is weird in a very good way, and any of OB's annual festivals or its weekly farmer's markets are a great way to celebrate the utter coolness of this beach community out of the 60's. On top of great people-watching, OB has fantastic restaurants, yet everything is casual, as you'd expect for a beach town (the most dressing up you'll have to do is to put on some kind of footwear). When we saw this beautiful oceanfront condo for sale in the heart of our favorite community, we just couldn't resist.

What makes this condo unique

We think you'll fall in love with our place as much as we have. Many oceanfront places have a long stretch of grass, pavement, or sand between you and the ocean. In contrast, this place is as close to the water as you can get--you are literally right on top of it. That gives this condo a magical feel of floating on the sea. Sitting on the North-facing couch, it's not hard to imagine you're on a boat, drifting on the ocean. Looking to the south, you see the beautiful bluffs of sunset cliffs, with waves crashing against the shore.

Surfers are a regular sight from the living room and bedroom, as are pelicans. We have seen whales and dolphins (though more rare), as well as harbor seals.

Excellent stay!!

  • 5 of 5

Condo was well stocked with everything you will need for your stay. We enjoyed walking to all the local activities. The area is easy to navigate. The walk down to Sunset Cliffs is amazing. You are better off walking as parking can be difficult to find especially in the summer months. All other local attractions are a short drive away.

The week we were there it was warmer and the condo was warm without air conditioning even with the doors and windows open. By mid week of our stay the temperatures were more comfortable.

The owner and manager were easy to work with. The security deposit was refunded promptly. I would recommend this condo.

Nice views

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Ocean Beach. The views from the condo were wonderful. The owner was easy to work with and everything went very smoothly. All the necessary items (towels, dish washer soap, pots, pans, etc. needed to make the place very workable were provided). The check-in and check-out process were quite easy.

The interior of the condo itself was quite nice (except as noted below). The owner has the condo stocked with a few games and the television was great (although we barely used it). There were even a few movies to watch (we didn't find time). The parts of the condo that had been refurbished were nicely done. But, that refurbishing should have continued with replacement of the carpet in the bedrooms (it is quite old and gave the impression of being dirty).

The apartment complex itself is quite run down. We had not spent time in Ocean Beach before so were not familiar with it but after having now been there, I guess I would say the complex is probably at the lower end of typical for the area. In the end, I guess, you don't spend much time wondering around the complex so it probably does not matter that much. But, wanted others to at least have their expectations set right.

The location was good - we could easily walk to restaurants and could easily drive to other points in San Diego.

I thought I would spend a minute reviewing some of the pictures on the VRBO website - what is accurate, what might be a little misleading, what might be missing:

1) Missing - pictures of the rest of the condo complex (showing its poor condition of repair)

2) Perhaps somewhat misleading -

a) The pictures of the deck perhaps make it look bigger than it is. We had 4 adults staying in the place and, frankly, it would be difficult for all four of us to be out there at once.

b) The picture with the view from the master bedroom - when I had seen it before staying there, I thought it showed a sliding glass door. It isn't. It is a very low window;

c) The picture showing the view south from the balcony - what is shown is the patio of the complex next door. The patio of this complex is not nearly so nice.

3) Accurate - pretty much everything else and in particular the views from the balcony. It was beautiful.

Overall, as long as expectations are set correctly and you are not expecting a beautiful complex

More than we imagined!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had so much fun. The condo is beautiful, watching the surfers/listening to the waves break on the rocks from the balcony was pure bliss. Newport Ave is only a .4 mile walk to outstanding restaurants and bars. We will definitely be back. It was the best time my wife and I have had on vacation.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

I almost don't want to write this because I would like to keep it to myself but I am afraid the secret is out. This place is everything the pictures show and more. We planned a trip with our Grandaughter and my great Grandaughter who is two. It was a wonderful place and we had a great time but I want to go back minus the kids. It had everything we needed, awesome stocked kitchen, all the sundries for baths, towels for the beach, umbrellas and boogie boards. The best thing though is the master bedroom, waves crashing all night and I think the best mattress I have ever slept on.

Will I go back? I can't wait!

Beyond Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My two Sisters, my Niece and I stayed at Steve's Beach Front Condo and it is the definition of Beach Front!! It was perfect for us. The views could not be better. Close to walk to restaurants and shopping and the beach. Loved the fact that we had a parking garage space. We have stayed at several VRBO properties and this one was the most well stocked of any. We had everything we needed. Very nicely updated. We cooked one evening and had everything we needed to do so. The condo is just as it looks in the pictures. We would highly recommend this place. I was also impressed with how quickly Steve responded to my emails. And Greg the manager was great. We would definitely stay here again if we return to San Diego.

Map

Car: not necessary

Ocean beach is a fantastic, eclectic beach town out of the 60's. Filled with funky shops, funky people, and some of the best restaurants in San Diego (all casual), Ocean Beach is about as unique as you can get. There are very few chain stores here, and almost all establishments are locally owned and run. People watching is unparalleled, and a trip to the Wednesday farmer's market is a feast for the eyes--watch families, students, hippies and tourists from every part of the world mix together in a good-natured celebration of food and music. For those into antiques, the main street (Newport) is filled with antique stores. Closer to the water on Newport, eat the best fish tacos in San Diego at South Beach Bar and Grill, or enjoy one of Hodads' famous burgers. All of OB's best attractions are within walking distance from the condo--you won't need your car while you're here. At the same time, the condo is several blocks away from main street so that you can enjoy peace and quiet at night, except for the sound of waves which crash against the rocks below. It really is the best of all worlds--a vibrant town you can walk to during the day, and a residential oceanfront experience at night.

Of course, if you want to drive, you can. Cabrillo monument and the best views in San Diego are 5 minutes drive. The airport is 10 minutes away, downtown, gaslamp, and convention center are about 13-14 minutes away, and Balboa park/zoo is about 15 minutes away.
