Quiet Ocean Beach Getaway-1.5 Blocks to the Beach

Sleeps6
Bedrooms 2
Bathrooms1
Space 800 sq. ft.
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 3 - 4 nights

Overview

About the property

Light and bright 2 bedroom/1 bath that is ideally located for trips to the beach

This nicely furnished condo is the upstairs unit of a duplex that has 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom in the peace and quiet of southern Ocean Beach, walking distance to the hustle and bustle (and bars and restaurants) of Newport Avenue, but far enough away that your evenings will be spent in solitude.

The bedrooms feature hardwood and several windows each to allow the ocean breezes to flow. One bedroom has a queen bed, the second bedroom has two twins. The sofa in the living room folds out to accomodate an additional 2 visitors.

The kitchen is completely equipped with all appliances, pots, pans, utensils and plateware that you will need to take full advantage of cooking for yourself when you choose to stay in.

Just 1.5 blocks from the unit is Sunset Cliffs, one of the most beautiful locations to explore in San Diego. Whether taking in gorgeous sunsets or exploring spectacular sandstone cliffs and tide pools, you will not have to travel far from your home base to have amazing experiences. However, should you choose to venture to those places that make San Diego a destination, you are a mere 10 minutes to Sea World, 15 minutes to the Zoo, 20 minutes to La Jolla, 30 minutes to Legoland and 35 minutes to the Safari Park.

The unit also has wonderful amenities such as a parking space for one car (a premium at the beach), washer and dryer, cable, and high-speed internet access. The unit even has air conditioning, for those days when the ocean breeze stops blowing. Everything else you need is included from linens to beach towels to beach toys.

It's a short stroll to grocery stores, shopping, many restaurants and nightlife.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We stayed for 5 days and we were quite pleased. Located on a quiet block very close to the beach. The apartment was spacious with a nice open layout, comfortable, well stocked and very clean. Aaron was a pleasure to deal with, helpful, accommodating, informative. All in all a very nice stay. We would stay again and recommend to friends.,

Great location and Aaron is attentive

  • 4 of 5

Aaron is a great guy. Wonderful location. Light bulb pooped and he brought new ones same day. Guy who lives in bottom floor has smelly dogs but you only smell them walking up the stairs. AC unit is weak/ unusable, but you don't really need it. I'd stay there again!

Owner's Response: Thanks Phil! We're buying a new AC unit immediately, so next time you come back it will be even cooler than the ocean breeze!

Dream

  • 5 of 5

Aaron is and will always be the best host you could ever ask for. His dwellings are always 5*, greatest locations and priced accordingly. You could not ask for. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking a place. Very quick response and more than accommodating. I will be back next year so thanks again. WARRIORS

Enjoyed a wonderful weeklong stay in Ocean Beach

  • 4 of 5

Property was in a great location just a couple blocks from the downtown Ocean Beach area with restaurants, bars, and a great farmers market on Wednesday evenings! Property was clean and with lots of windows to keep a nice cross breeze going. Neighbors are really close though and I'm sure we all got tired of hearing each other's conversations. 1 Queen bed and 2 twins - soft mattresses. Washer and dryer was a nice amenity - went home with clean clothes!

No need for an alarm clock when staying in Ocean Beach, as the local family of beautiful Parrots that escaped years ago do a better job than roosters at letting you know the sun is up! The location was great as it only took us 20-30 minutes to get to many other great locations in the San Diego area, from Pacific Beach and La Jolla to the north to see the seals, to Old Town, Point Loma and Liberty Station to the east, and Coronado and Downtown Area including the Gaslamp District, Southport Village, and the USS Midway to the southeast. Thanks for the hospitality!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review Michelle! Glad you had a comfortable stay and walked to all OB has to offer. Great to hear how easy it was to hit all the spots in SD! It is unfortunate that the parrots spend part of the year in the area. We hope to have you back!

Great place to base from

  • 5 of 5

This is a great little place to base all your adventures from. Everything is walking distance from here. Great places to eat, surf, hike, club, watch sunsets, explore tide pools and enjoy the community. There is plenty of room for storing you adventure gear and for cooking if eating out is not your thing. There are a few not so great points you should know about. 1. its an upstairs unit and doesn't have a place to sit outside and enjoy the day. That said, the cliffs are two blocks away and there are incredible microbars and coffee houses that all have curb side seating. 2. All of the OB is under the air traffic strip and you can hear the planes most of the day . Also the occupant downstairs has a yappy little dog, cute but yappy. Not all day long and if you love being out then only at night when you enter and exit. On the plus side the place is great to hang out in if there is a rainy day. Great WIFI, TV, games and space.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the 5 stars Jacqueline! Happy to hear you enjoyed the area and were able to walk to all that OB has to offer. One downside of several of our beautiful beach communities is that the airport is also located on the coast. But they do have restricted hours for the planes. We hope to see you again in the future!

Absolutely fantastic property close to the ocean!

  • 5 of 5

Aaron was top notch in the whole process from reservation to final refund of the deposit. The property was certainly well maintained except for a couple very minor items. All the necessary items to make ourselves at home were on site. Small item was that you are only a few miles from the airport and first flight out in the morning was about 6:30AM. That along with the local parrot population meeting for their morning coffee ensured one that you did not oversleep on your vacation! We would certainly recommend this property and would go back again if we came back to San Diego.

Owner's Response: Lyle Thank you for the kind words. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay. Thanks also for the feedback for the little stuff so I could take care of it. Unfortunately the planes are the planes and the downside to an urban airport is just about every neighborhood in San Diego has to deal with plane noise. Luckily the parrots come and go throughout the year! Aaron

Close-to-everything beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

Wow! This cute little beach stay had everything we needed and more! First, the location! Just a block away from the most beautiful ocean view situated on a cliff. The natural ocean breeze even swept right through our windows. Second, the location is just a walking distance from all the main activity OB has to offer. Two blocks down we dined at the OB noodle house (plenty of pho and beer) and across the street from that another cute gastropub. Maybe another block down is the main stretch of OB. Once we arrived, we never drive anywhere because of the proximity and ease our little stay had. Also, my mom is a complete germaphobe, and this place was spotless, down to the floorboards. There was plenty of clean towels, beach toys, umbrella, just about everything you need for a beach stay! We truly enjoyed ourselves and can't wait to stay at the quaint, quiet ocean beach getaway again.
