Quiet Ocean Beach Getaway-1.5 Blocks to the Beach

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


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 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.

Neat, clean property. Great location.

  • 5 of 5

I'm so glad that we chose this rental. On previous visits, we stayed at the Marriott on the marina. We got a Big Bang for buck by staying in this second floor apartment. It is open concept, so there's plenty of room and light. Stocked kitchen, laundry in unit, beach towels, toys, beach chairs and umbrella provided. We had our own dedicated parking spot, on premises. This is a commodity in OB! A quick 5 minute walk to the end of our street to take in the amazing Pacific views. This is where we gathered to watch the 4th of July fireworks. No big crowds. We had our own street party! A short 10-15 minute walk into town. Newport ave is where you will find all the restaurants, shops, beach and "vibe" of OB. Close to highway, as we made to college visits during our stay. Lastly, we were impressed with the prompt and professional communication from the property manager, Aaron.

Great central location

  • 4 of 5

Great central location to highways, shoreline, downtown, airport, Mission Bay, etc. Walking distance to restaurants. Perfect for our family of four, not too big or small. The property was very clean. I was glad I chose this location rather than one closer to downtown or to Balboa Park because it was so easy to get to places. Aaron is great to work with. I would highly recommend. Gave 4 stars only because we had issues with electricity but I know Aaron is working on that.

Perfect spot in a great neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was clean and fully stocked with everything we needed. Aaron was a great host, making himself available for any questions we had. I highly recommend this apartment for extended stays in Ocean Beach. 5 minute walk to everything, beach, restaurants, bars & shops! Thanks Aaron.
