Ocean Beach Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 BED, 1 BATH,Sleeps 4+, Private yard, Steps to Dog Beach, Bring your dogs!

summer dates still available. Each week includes a free night, and each month includes a free week.

Spend your relaxing beach getaway in our recently remodeled and updated 2 bedroom, 1 bath property on the water in San Diego's unique beach community of Ocean Beach. This lovely space includes a private, completely fenced back yard with patio and gas grill, off-street covered parking ,private secure WiFi, and quick Dog Beach access. There is never an extra charge for pets!

For your comfort and protection, ALL linens (sheets, pillowcases, mattress pads, zippered pillow covers, bedspreads, throws and throw rugs) are clean and fresh for each new guest. This is much higher than the industry standard, but do you want your kids and pets on anything less?

This beautiful apartment begins with a cozy living room just off your carport. It features cushy chairs with ottomans, an electric fireplace/heater, and a 32' flat screen TV with DVD player and ATT Uverse HDTV plus DVR. The hope chest contains beach towels and there are beach bags and hats for your use by the back door so you can grab them on your way to the beach!

Down the hall is the larger of the 2 bedrooms with a queen sized bed, 21' flat screen TV with DVR access and a large closet complete with an assortment of fresh robes and slippers. There are extra blankets/pillows in closet.

Further down the hall is the apartment's spa bathroom complete with tub/rain shower, vanity space for 2 and a

fabulous glass pedestal sink. The shower is lined in slate style ceramic tile trimmed in slate and limestone and the vanity area and back splash are glass mosaic tile. There are plenty of fluffy towels to pamper you and a powerful hair dryer.

The metal dining table sits under a casual nickel chandelier and seats 6. The adjacent lounge has a small couch, lounge chair and a wicker rocker, and another flat screen TV with DVR access. This area can seat 6 comfortably. Also in this open area is a brand new kitchen with glass doored cupboards, a very deep stainless steel sink (for bathing small dogs and children?) and new stainless range and refrigerator. The countertops are Italian porcelain tile. There is also a pull-out pantry, as well as dishes, glasses and crystal stemware for at least 8 people.

The smaller bedroom houses adult extra-long bunk beds along with a built in desk and another closet complete with fresh robes and slippers. Its window looks out onto the patio and back yard. There are also 2 twin air beds with linens.

Walk out the back door and you will find a covered patio and landscaped 'beachy' back yard covered by shade sails and decorated with old surfboards. There is an outdoor lounge area with comfy Adirondack chairs. The back gate opens onto a paved path, the San Diego River estuary (a wetlands sanctuary for birds such as blue herons, snowy egrets, pelicans and osprey) and then the beaches. The beach on the left is for people and the beach on the right is a unique off-leash area for dogs to run, swim and socialize!

All beds have Select Comfort Sleep Number mattresses (queen with dual controls) so you can adjust the firmness to any degree and as often as you like. These mattresses can also be dry cleaned as necessary. The pillows are encased in hypoallergenic covers that are washed after each use.

The simple, tasteful decor features original works by local painters and sculptors. The dog-proof, kid-proof floors are concrete which has been stained and sealed and are textured to be slip-resistant. The throw rugs are washed after every use. To help circulate the ocean breezes, there are ceiling fans in every area of the apartment.

About Brita Ferm

We are long-time Ocean Beach residents, having raised our children here. We are semi-retired and enjoy an active lifestyle with participation in local events and culture.Ask us about local restaurants!

Brita Ferm purchased this condo in 1995

Why Brita Ferm chose San Diego County

Staying in our property for a weekend or 6 months, lets you have the bona fide beach lifestyle. It is super clean and comfy, practically kid- and dog-proof, and has the best neighbors in!

What makes this condo unique

Bird sanctuary just beyond your back gate, steps to Dog Beach and other wide sandy beaches, top notch restaurants, and a small town atmosphere greet you in one of Southern California's few remaining authentic beach communities. This location and the potential to remodel into living quarters both practical and cozy are what sold us on our property. We hope you'll agree!

A great vacation spot for an Ocean Beach getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This charming beach cottage has everything you need for your vacation. The owner, who happens to live nearby, met as at the door to give us the key, show us around, point at sites and basic Ocean Beach facts, then quietly left us to enjoy our stay. The cottage was very clean, organized and stocked with everything you need. Restaurants and the farmer's market are within walking distance and the beach is just outside your back door. We had a dog with us and he absolutely loved the dog beach which is about 200 yards away. Be sure to stop at a larger grocery store on your way to Ocean Beach as there is only a CVS nearby (plenty of liquor stores, though). The only downside, which you will get with every OB rental, is the airplane noise. We stayed in OB because of its relatively close proximity to the convention center as we were in town for Comic Con. The ride to the CC from OB in an Uber was less than $20! We would definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the terrific review! You all were perfect guests, and I'm glad you had a good time in OB and at Conic Con. As far as the airplane noise goes :-/ , we know it's the only thing that keeps our little slice of paradise affordable. One guest got so enamoured, he made a recording of the sound on his phone and used it for a ringtone to remind him of his time here! :-D I hope we see you all again soon (including that well-behaved dog of yours.

Quiet and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Taking your pup and kids to the beach? It doesn't get much better than running and playing on the beach with your dog and your kids. This is a great place to stay for that. Out the back gate and up to the dunes! We parked the car and didn't use it again until we went home. Most things are within a 15min walk (people beach, food, market, shops etc).

Great back yard for reading and grilling and hanging out with your family and dog too.

Great location and very cute

  • 5 of 5

Took my daughter and her friends here for a Fourth of July girls beach trip. it is very easy to find and very close to the beach. There is a parking spot to use which is helpful since parking can be a nightmare. I will say the spot is pretty tight if you are in a larger/full size vehicle; I opted for street parking. Other than that, everything was great! Walking distance to beach, restaurants and pier. The house was clean, decorated really nice and had all the amenities with a super cute back patio area. We were able to sleep 5 people comfortably. The owner is very nice and helpful and lives close by which is nice. We loved it and will put this on our list of places to return to!

Perfect Beach Rental to bring the family and dogs!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and 2 golden retrievers totally enjoyed our stay at the beach rental. Brita was very nice and accommodating to us. The place was very clean and well stocked and perfect for all of us to stay and be comfortable for 3 nights. The location is perfect, very close to Dog Beach, which was ideal for us and the dogs. We very much enjoyed the backyard/patio which had plenty of room to have a few quest over and BBQ. Parking was right in front of the rental, which made it very easy to come and go. We will certainly stay here again, (hopefully soon)! Thank you Brita for making our stay so nice and looking forward to seeing you again! :)

Warm Regards,

Cindy and Ron Nichols (and Durango and Nugget!)

Great place to stay close to dog beach!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at this location. The backyard gives you access to the path leading to dog beach. The house is stocked with everything you need. The owner even bought new pans while we where there. The place is very well kept and clean. Location is close to many restaurants. Would definitely recommend this place to others.
