San Diego County House Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom plus den, 1 bathroom, sleeps 4

The OB Budget Beach House is a great vacation home for families on a budget. The location is excellent, 3.5 blocks to the beach and 2 blocks to 'Main Street.' This beach bungalow is VERY nice and yet cozy. The bedroom has a Queen sized bed with memory foam mattress. The den has two built-in desks and twin Murphy bunk beds. Recent upgrades include new kitchen cabinets, granite counter tops and back splash, new tile flooring, contemporary furnishings, a deck with gas grill and plenty of seating as well as one off-street parking space.

Ocean Beach: Location, location, location! This bungalow is located in an ideal neighborhood which is a nice 5 minute walk to the beach, yet far enough away from the hustle and bustle/congestion of the immediate beach area. Enjoy off-street parking along with ample additional street parking.

The sands of Ocean Beach (OB) are a pleasant 5 minute walk from your front door. At Ocean Beach you can enjoy an eclectic group of people, shops, restaurants, bars, antique stores, or just sit back and watch the surfers catch waves at the OB pier. Stroll down to Sunset Cliffs and enjoy enchanting views where you might even be lucky enough to see passing Whales!

Families can enjoy our close proximity to Sea World, which is only a 5 minute drive. If you want to catch some of the San Diego nightlife, the Gaslamp District in Downtown San Diego features hundreds of dining and entertainment options. The Gaslamp district is a 7-10 minute drive from Ocean Beach.

Activities: If you are looking for activities on your vacation, Ocean Beach is Conveniently located within 15 minutes of major attractions including the World Famous San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park, Museums, Old Town, Sea World, Kayaking, Petco Park, Qualcomm Stadium, La Jolla Cove, hiking, surfing,golfing, boating and miles of sandy beaches.

The Entire property (front and back houses) can accommodate 12people!: Call for information regarding accommodations for large parties (up to 12)

Guestbook comments from the owner

We rented this beach bungalow for a last minute get-away, it was absolutely perfect! The entire place was freshly remodeled and decorated very well, you could tell that everything in the house is high-end. My kids loved the Murphy bunk beds and we appreciated having the desks as my Husband and I both had some work to do while we were down there. I think we found our new favorite get-away spot in San Diego!

Nice, budget-friendly vacation home

  • 4 of 5

The 2 car garage turned vacation house was perfect. My mom, my aunt, and I slept comfortably in separate rooms (one slept on the couch in the living room, although one bedroom had 2 beds). The only warning I have for future renters is that the house is directly in the flight path. Beginning around 6am every day, you will most likely we awaken by airplanes. Other than that, the place was great and budget-friendly. So hlad I didn't pay more for a hotel.

Just As Described

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a reasonably priced modern place close the OB core and and beaches that was pet friendly. This place delivered. It's exactly like the pictures. It is very well equipped. Accessing the property is easy and the off street parking a must have. The only negative is the plane traffic which is true for any place in this area. All in all a great choice.

Great Little House!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed here, and the owners are super helpful and communication was always there. We appreciate the upgrades they have done since our last visit! We love the pantry and that the second room has two beds and not a bunkbed so we were comfortable running the fan at night. The off street parking is great and made it easy to run around during the day since we knew were had parking when we returned. I agree with someone else about the airplanes starting up around 6:30 am. We didn't notice them as much at night since we were so tired from playing all day, but like the other person said...nothing can be done about that! We would definitely stay here again and again :) great place and a great price.

Great spot!!!

  • 5 of 5

As advertised, this was a perfect little "Bungalow", as my kids named it. It was a nice stroll to and from the beach, and even closer to the main strip of shops and restaurants. Very safe and the off street parking was KEY! Would definitely stay here again.

Lovely Home in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

My family was impressed with this house, it is nicely furnished and very comfortable. The back deck made for a nice environment for relaxing after busy days at the zoo, Sea World and the beach. Planes flying overhead are kind of noisy beginning around 6:30 AM, but not much can be done about that!

Great place to stay! Minutes from the ocean!

  • 4 of 5

The little beach condo was actually very well equipped. Great kitchen! Comfortable beds. We were only a couple minutes walk to the beach. Great restaurants close by. I highly recommend visiting the area of Ocean Beach. We had a fabulous time!
