About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4

New to Market - Ocean Front Stunner !

Enjoy the panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean from the shared yard.

This one bedroom, one bath house is fully furnished with all the amenities including a fully equipped kitchen that allows you to prepare meals at home. The house comfortably sleeps 4 people. The master bedroom has a queen size bed and a sofa sleeper in the living room. Step out the back door to a panoramic ocean view and walk 6 steps to the cliff overlooking the water below! The shared backyard is large and spacious and includes patio furniture, lounge chairs, hot tub and gas BBQs. The perfect place to relax and spend time with family and friends. Beach access is less than a 1/2 a block away.

Just steps away from Sunset Cliffs Park with its many hidden beaches and named for its exquisite sunset vistas, this park encompasses 68 acres of bluffs and walking paths high above the wide expanse of the Pacific Ocean. With its rugged coastline and panoramic views, this area is popular with surfers, ocean-gazers, and folks who like to cruise Sunset Cliffs Boulevard, which runs the length of the cliffs. Drive along Sunset Cliffs Boulevard and enjoy breathtaking views and photo opportunities. It also makes a nice bike ride or walk, and it’s a great place to watch birds. You can see migrating California gray whales during the winter months from high on the bluffs.

Ocean beach is a relaxed beach town, encounter a distinctive downtown district just steps from the ocean, enjoy San Diego's finest and largest Farmers Market, experience the original Dog Beach, or stroll on the longest concrete pier on the west coast. We are located across the bay a few minutes by car from the popular Sea World, 5 minutes from the San Diego Airport and 10 minutes from the World Famous San Diego Zoo, Petco Park and the Gas Lamp District.

Best ever

  • 5 of 5

Unbeatable value! Once you look at the price of a hotel room, and add in the cost of meals out, how can you compare? This place is quaint, romantic; has a GREAT view. What else could you want? Beautifully decorated and walking distance to everything!

Very cool area

  • 5 of 5

We were in San Diego for 5 nights. Absolutely loved the area. Ocean Beach is a very laid back and quiet area with lots of shops, pubs and restaurants just about a 10-15 minute walk away from these cottages on Newport. The cottage we were in is very nice. With a great view right out the kitchen window. We kept the window in the bathroom open all the time so we coud here the waves. The yard is great and did get the chance to use the hot tub one night too. We would definitely look at renting these cottages next time we are down in the area

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was nicely equipped and right on the water! It really helps to have designated parking when you're so close to the beach. The outdoor area is spectacular and loved sitting in the hot tub watching the waves crash. All in all, a great place to stay and I would definitely come back.

Wonderful hiddden gem!

  • 5 of 5

I could barely write this, just so this gem would remain hidden. But this place was amazing, it had spectacular views of the ocean. The property is very well kept and welcoming. It has all the features of home. Can't wait to return.

Sleep to the Sound of Surf

  • 5 of 5

Wasn't sure what to expect but was more than pleasantly surprised upon arrival as the ocean is even closer than we thought and it was amazing drifting to sleep with the sound of the waves. Communication from David and the owners was impeccable with the whole process very smooth and our expectations managed perfectly with a few emails.

Access to keys was from a lock box on the door which was wonderful as we flew in a bit later and found the beautiful cottage clean and well appointed. The views were amazing and the town of OB fun and the Pho at the OB Noodle House was top notch. Hoodads in town was also voted best national burger from Drive-ins, Diners & Dives but we didn't get a chance this time to sample so we have to come back - can't wait!!!

Definitely romantic

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific time at the romantic mermaid. When we arrived, we were pleased to find that the cottage looked even better in person than it did in the photographs on the website. David was in constant communication with us, and gave us all the details, so there were no questions unanswered. We haven't ever rented a place like this before – always used hotels, And weren't really sure what to expect. It was really nice to have a property manager that was so readily available and willing to help. Everything you need was at the cottage. They have boogie boards, beach chairs, Three barbecues and all the kitchen items that you would need. They even have stocked it with ketchup, mustard, tinfoil and baggies to make your stay more like a home away from home. You can't beat the view either, nor can you get any closer to Sunset Cliffs because the property is on it! The back patio has unbelieveable views and has two hot tubs overlooking the surf. We were very happy that we chose this property for our vacation and would highly recommend traveling this way instead of using a hotel for a beach getaway.
