Recently upgraded,  Blue Heron Cottages offers our guests the ultimate in turn key vacationing. Here you will find all you need for your stay of 3 days or 3 weeks. Each of our 6 dog friendly cottages sleeps up to 4 adults comfortable.  You will find a queen size bed in the separate bedroom, and, in the living room, a sectional sofa that converts to a VERY comfortable full queen bed. The two areas share the jack-and-jill bathroom which can be accessed from either the living room or the bedroom.  Each cottage opens on to a lovely, large and fenced-in courtyard. Amenities include a fully equipped, chef inspiring, kitchen. The bedroom and living each have large flat screen Smart TV's, with entertainment Apps such as Netflix and Amazon Prime, and HD cable. The living room also has a BluRay/DVD player, and free wireless internet. All linens are provided, as well as 4 sets of towels, including beach towels. We offer complimentary beach cruiser bikes, boogie and surf boards, sand toys and small coolers for your use. 

Enjoy the large shared courtyard under the gazebo listening to the wild local parrots as they go about their day.   Barbecue with friends and family, toss the ball for your pup, or just relax and soak up the sun. The gazebo is the perfect spot to gather and enjoy the evening sea breeze or morning coffee. Catch some rays on the lounge chairs, or just hand out in the patio lounge area.

We are located close to all things San Diego in the greatest little neighborhood: Ocean Beach.  This area has a wonderful community feeling, very peaceful and eclectic.  A variety of restaurants, boutiques and antique shops are only 4 blocks away on Newport Ave. Don't miss your opportunity to purchase the freshest, and most delicious locally grown produce, art, flowers, and more every Wednesday at OB's Farmers Market on Newport Avenue. Where we are located in Ocean Beach, , is NOT a vey touristy area, but you are very close to all the main  San Diego tourist attractions. Most San Diego attractions are within 20-30 minutes by car. We are located across the bay a few minutes away from Sea World, 20 minutes away from the San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park, Petco Park (home of the Padres), the Gas Lamp District as well as the San Deigo Airport. Disneyland is only about 2 hours away, and Legoland is about 1 hour. Each cottage comes with an off street parking spot suitable for all autos. There is also a bus stop is right across the street from the cottages, and that should hook you up with transportation around SD if necessary. However, you can easily walk or bike all over Ocean Beach...always safe, and relaxing.   

There is a beautiful little beach cove perfect for playing and relaxing just a block and a half away. The main beach is just at the end of Newport Ave, an easy bike ride, minutes away. 

     If you have a dog, Ocean Beach and Blue Heron Cottages are very dog friendly!  Dog Beach is only about one half mile away, an easy walk or a quick ride.  

  Please check out our location using the location tab on this site (we are on the corner of Cable Street and Santa Cruz Avenue in San Diego, CA 92107)  You will get a an idea as to how San Deigo is laid out and where we are located in relation to other attractions and beaches. 

          I was born and raised in San Deigo and if you have questions about the area I would be happy to tell you what I can.  Our onsite manager is also a San Deigo local and can be of assistance if you need any support while in SD.  Enjoy all that San Diego has to offer then come back and relax in your home away from home at Blue Heron Cottages.

About Denise Waddell-Conte

Denise was born and raised in San Diego, and Christopher and Denise are avid dog lovers (we have 7!). We love San Diego, know the area well and are happy to share whatever information we can to enhance your stay.

Why Denise Waddell-Conte chose San Diego County

Blue Heron Cottages is perfectly located in Ocean Beach. We love the eclectic atmosphere of this neighborhood. With San Diego being such a traditionally touristy area, Ocean Beach is a breath of fresh air. Our cottages have an oasis of a courtyard, large, bright and enclosed for privacy...not usually found in the beach areas.

What makes this cottage unique

Our cottages have an oasis of a courtyard, large, bright and enclosed for privacy...not usually found in the beach areas...and great for your pups! We pride ourselves on the cleanliness of our cottages, and with how efficient and well equipped they are. You will receive personal, professional customer service through the booking process and during your stay. We have on site management to insure that all concerns and needs are handled quickly. Additionally, we offer complimentary bikes, boogie boards, surf boards, and beach chairs for your use on a first come, first serve basis, throughout your stay.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came down for a wedding and had a wonderful stay.

Although we don't have a dog, we love them and got to many very nice dogs.

The place is quiet, comfortable, clean, mondern and close to everything. It was the perfect place to call home while enjoying OB.

Thanks for everything.

These cottages are amazing, especially if you travel with your dog.

  • 5 of 5

The cottages are in a great location, close to dog beach and sunset cliffs. The courtyard is perfect for dogs. The rooms are clean and well-appointed. The on-site manager is friendly and helpful. We will be back with our dog!

Clean, well-equipped property just minutes from fun

  • 5 of 5

The entire property was so well equipped! Our bungalow had everything we needed to cook breakfast at home and plenty of dishware and utensils for when we grilled burgers and hot dogs in the courtyard. The gazebo outdoors was big and there was plenty of space to relax. The home had a smart TV in the bedroom and loads of natural light from all the windows. The blinds were so easy to use! The location is perfect, just a short 5 minute walk to all the fun around Newport Avenue. I would absolutely recommend Blue Heron and look forward to making another visit!

A Nice Pet Friendly Vacation Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This was my second year staying at the Blue Herron Cottage. They are very pet friendly and have very good accommodation for you and your dog. The fenced back yard is shared with five other cottage renters, and provides a good location to exercise your dog. There are two gas barbecue grills for those who desire to grill during their stay. The cottage is a mere 1.5 blocks from the ocean and there is a nice little beach known as "The Cove". The dog beach is about a mile or two away but it is worth the journey. It is a large beach area where your hounds can run off leash. There is another dog beach on Fiesta Island that is about five miles away. This dog beach is even larger than the other dog beach. There are plenty of restaurants and bars about four or five blocks away. The Olive Tree Market Place is a good deli within walking distance and they make a great sandwich.

The cottage was well stocked and had everything one needs for a nice stay. Checkin and check out is a breeze. Hi speed wifi internet is a real nice feature that is included. The TV's are Smart so if you already have an account you can watch Netflix, Amazon Video, etc... If you are a light sleeper this might not be the place for you because it is located underneath the San Diego International Airport departure route. It didn't bother me but if you are a light sleeper you should consider this.
