About Craig

Ocean Beach is an ideal place to live. It is known for it's charm, beach community feel, great restaurants, shopping, jogging trails, kayaking, surfing, outdoor sports, unique mom and pops shops and antiquing. We love living here. It's been a fantastic city to raise our 2 little girls and enjoy the California sun.

Craig is a Real-Estate Broker and Developer and Tracy is a Live Food Chef, personal life coach and spa owner as well as herbalist.

Craig purchased this cottage in 2000

What makes this cottage unique

I think the most unique thing about our little cottage is it's privacy, charm and quaintness in the middle of a downtown beach community. You can find serenity in one moment and step outside our gates to find many activities, restaurants, and shops just around the corner. Great place for a vacation, children, and lovers.

Quiet Retreat Close to Everything!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in the cottage for 10 days. Although it is virtually around the corner to restaurants, bars and shops on Newport Avenue (check out The Humble Hippie and Vintage Revivals), it is located in a surprisingly peaceful retreat. The cottage is just as pictured. It is very clean, well maintained and equipped, has an excess of bath linens, and the bed is amazingly comfortable! There is a handy little coffee shop around the corner. If you love Ocean Beach as much as I do, this is an ideal spot. The owner was extremely helpful and accommodating. I really didn't want to leave!

This property is quiet and clean and in the heart of it all! My family and I stayed for 6 nights including my infant son. The space is pretty safe for young children and the right size if you plan to stay out and about. It was a 7-10 minute walk to the beach and no more than 20 minutes away from all major attractions(Seaworld, Zoo, Grocery stores, etc.) Everything was as described in the listing if not better. Property manager was friendly and willing to accomidate any needs we had. If we return to San Diego its definately worth staying there again! Only issue is that the unit could use a full length mirror, but all else was excellent!

Secret Gem in Ocean Beach

  • 5 of 5

My husband, my self and our daughters, 7 and 9 stayed at the Ocean Beach cottage for Spring Break. Scott - the property manager was very warm and welcoming.

The cottage is just as described in the ad, very clean and recently updated. The queen bed was extremely comfortable and the futon worked out well for the girls. The girls loved to play in the courtyard and hang out on the deck. Plenty of amenities are included in the property. We took advantage of the boogie boards, beach chairs, sand toys, and on site gas BBQ grill. The cottage was well equipped for our week long stay.

The location is fantastic! The property is on a well traveled street but the cottage is tucked back inside with a gate enclosing the entire property. We walked the few blocks to the beach every day. No problem even with all the beach paraphernalia!

Ocean Beach has several great restaurants in walking distance - The Joint, Pizza Port, Hodad's (ate there 2xs). We had a phenomenal meal at Bo -beau Kitchen for Easter dinner.

We all had a great time playing on the beach and loved exploring the tide pools just south of the pier.

The owner was extremely helpful to notify us we had left our camera behind in the cottage. Craig was kind enough to ship the camera to us along with our daughters coats they left as well. We would certainly recommend this property and hope to visit again!

Charming Ocean Beach retreat

  • 5 of 5

We spent Christmas week visiting family living in Ocean Beach and stayed in this lovely little cottage. It's clean, cozy and private in spite of being only steps away from from all the OB activities. All of the pictures of the property are accurate. The small kitchen is well equipped. We prepared Christmas Eve dinner for everyone, and then had the relatives over for the feast. We ate at several restaurants in OB and recommend Ciao Bella and The Joint in the immediate area, and Bobeau a few blocks north. We would definitely stay here again.

Nice Place

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is nice and clean as described. The location is convenient, closed to beach, supermarket, laundermat, and many good restaurants. The owner and property manager were very accomodating.

Ocean Beach looked a little messy at first, but after getting used to it, we found it a very nice place and people were kind and decent.

One thing that could be improved is the parking spot. It needs some cleanup. Also we had to park next to a row of 6 trash bins. My kid has bad allergy so it was not a good experience for her. You can park on the street but remember to note the street weeping day otherwise you could got a $52 parking ticket ( I did !!)

Overall, it's very good. We'd rent the place again for our next san diego vacation.
