2 bedroom, 1 bath, 1 block to beach, short walk to town center, dog friendly!

This modernized, air conditioned, non-smoking, family friendly beach cottage location, which is part of a well maintained duplex, is located in the prime, centrally located town of Ocean Beach, San Diego.

The property is well managed and maintained by the owners who occupy the adjacent duplex unit, so you can rest assured you are the sole guest allowing for rest, relaxation, and fun.


We are close enough to the ocean (1 block) such that you can hear the surf and sea lions at night. Stroll down in the morning with your coffee to check the surf and be in the water shortly thereafter.

This location is ideal for those seeking either a high walk-ability factor or as convenient launch point to day and night adventures allowing for a rich Southern California experience.

Ocean Beach offers a unique blend of energy, diversity, and soul. As the saying goes, 'Ocean Beach: its an attitude not a place'. From hacky sacking, hula hooping, and people watching by the grass flat near the pier, to the weekly Farmers Market with Live Music, Llamas, shopping, and awesome fresh fare, to the vast offering of dining ranging from fish tacos to romantic fine dining there's something for everyone here and you'll be but minutes by foot to take it in at this rental.

Our rental unit is ideal for those vacationers and families seeking a place to retreat for evening and rest and relax. We encourage all potential guests to consider what it is they want out of their precious vacation time and make sure that this quieter, non-partying location is a good fit.

Our unit features 2 comfortable queen sized beds, central AC/heat, plenty of private yard space, a high end kitchen, two flat screen TV's with cable, free NetFlix streaming, Roku3, Bluray/DVD player, and high speed (15Mbps) internet. Tank-less water heaters allow for relaxing post ocean swim showers, followed up with relaxation in a comfortable living room.

You'll have off street alley parking that allows for one full sized car, mid sized SUV, minivan, or mid sized Truck which is very desirable in this area. However if you chose, the property is but a $20 cab ride from the airport, so if you're looking to stay local, a rental car may not be needed. With cabs, bikes, and the trolley, a reasonably energetic person will fare very well! Our beach towns are extremely bike friendly.

We have boogie boards and surf boards, several bicycles, some fishing gear, beach chairs, and an umbrella for your use. There is a shared washer and dryer for your use on the property. You will have a Weber gas grill with plenty of propane for your use.

This is a comfortable rental unit for 4 people. Pictures and description are only so rich. To fully experience Ocean Beach San Diego, come stay at our property!

About Rich & Adrienne

We live on the property in the front unit of the duplex. Ocean Beach is our home and we love it. We have extensive knowledge on what to do, who to talk to, and what to see during the day or night in Ocean Beach as well as the city. On our off days we rarely get in our car to leave these few square miles we call home unless absolutely necessary; it has just about everything we need. One of us is from the North East, one of us grew up in San Diego, and both of us are here to stay.

Rich & Adrienne purchased this House in 2010

Why Rich & Adrienne chose Ocean Beach

We have lived in Ocean Beach since 1998. When this property became available, it fell into our laps and we think it was meant to be as it is a perfect fit for us. We knew there was potential and have been upgrading ever since our move in. We are proud of our little slice of OB and are fortunate to have such a great community close by and friendly, long term neighbors. As such, we've been renovating the property to create a space that we are comfortable in. We're confident you will be comfortable and enjoy your stay as well.

What makes this House unique

We love hearing the waves and even the seals and sea lions on still nights. While we will not advert a view, the sea world fireworks are something we like to view with a peak out from the side yard. The bedroom #1 window of rental allows for viewing the fireworks over the palms. We also enjoy seeing the tops of the 4th of July, PB, and Downtown fireworks when the weather permits. While our property is a typical full lot in beach communities, we are fortunate to have a 'larger' backyard so close to the beach. Being 1 block from the beach allows you to retreat to a calmer, restful space in a matter of minutes. Coming home for lunch or an afternoon drink takes but a few minutes. The beaches here are vast and you can always find a nice plot of sand to call your own for the day. Throw a line in the inlet for a little fishing if you choose or jump in to a volleyball pickup at the sand courts at the end of the block . The West Coast is not particularly known for it's larger sandy beaches which makes us fortunate here in OB. With a little effort there are more secluded beaches very close by that will remove you from the manageable crowds here and make you feel as though you're away from the city , and we can happily provide the tips and tricks to get you there!

                                                      This was exactly what we were looking for and much better than we had hoped.

                                                      ken J.

                                                      Very comfortable and private get away. Everything you could possibly want is provided by management. We literally could have arrived with nothing but our travel bags and dog food. Many things that we did not imagine we would want were thought of and provided.

                                                      ABSOLUTE PERFECTION for our 2 WEEK STAY!

                                                      jamie s.

                                                      We stayed here for our 2 week holiday of rest and relaxation and that's exactly what we got! Rich and Adrienne were the most perfect hosts (as much or as little contact as you like) and thought of absolutely everything in the home for our stay. Right down to a full kitchen complete with everything you would need and shampoos, conditioners and lotions in the bathroom. You really just need to bring yourselves! Great private fenced backyard! And the parking spot was great to have! Close to the beach and walking distance to incredible restaurants. (you'll want to try them all!) Comfortable beds, netflix, wi-fi were all perfect! I don't think we would have found a better place for ourselves and our dog. (Bossco, he loved the beach!!) Nothing will disappoint!

                                                      Great rental close to the beach!

                                                      DarcieChicago, IL

                                                      The rental has everything you need - a parking spot, a fully furnished kitchen, cable tv/internet, washer and dryer, and a responsive owner! Rich and Adrienne were very responsive from the start and continued to be throughout our three week stay. The place is well kept and clean.

                                                      The place is about a block to the beach and a couple of blocks from Newport Avenue. A perfect location and easy to walk to anywhere you need in Ocean Beach.

                                                      Rich and Adrienne had coffee and a six pack of local beer waiting upon our arrival - a great start to our stay!

                                                      I would recommend this place to someone looking to stay in Ocean Beach!

                                                      Amazing little stay, great location, great trip

                                                      Thank you so much to Adrienne & Rich!

                                                      They were helpful every step of the way and have a wonderful place. Just a few walks from the beach/dog beach. Nice little outside patio, super accessible, parking. The house was wonderful, extremely comfortable and our hosts were helpful and available to us the entire time if we needed them. Definitely coming back here next time we're in town and would highly HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend to anyone thinking about booking a stay here. Don't hesitate, just do it...100% worth it.

                                                      Wonderfully appointed, 1 minute from the beach

                                                      This is a wonderful property. It has everything you would need or want. The kitchen is excellently appointed. Even has a few basics like oils and spices. The whole property is beautifully maintained and really well thought out, right down to the ready and waiting outside hose to help keep tracking in sand to a minimum. The beds are super comfortable, water pressure is great, even had food and water bowls for our dog.

                                                      Rich and Adrienne are great hosts. We thoroughly enjoyed our time. here. Would definitely return.

                                                      Awesome....Great place with great owners!

                                                      Benn H.

                                                      Richard and Adrienne were great to deal with from the booking to the end. I would highly recommend these guys when you are looking to stay in OB or in close by neighbourhoods as it is worth the little extra drive to know that you are going to be well looked after.

                                                      Will be back!
