Ocean Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This Historic 1924 beach bungalow was the home of Belle Jennings Benchley (August 8, 1882 – December 17, 1972), known as “The Zoo Lady,” and was the director of the San Diego Zoo from 1927 to 1953, guiding its expansion from a small collection of animals to an innovative world-class zoo.

The home has been remodeled with new kitchen and bathrooms, refinished white oak floors and comfortable beds. The house is located on the beachfront known as 'Dog Beach' your pet will be in heaven on this leash-free dog-friendly beach. Just a short walk to the West and you are on the people-only beach with surfing, boogey boarding, swimming, body surfing, and all the usual beach activities.

Walking distance to the famous OB pier (the longest concrete pier on the West Coast) and the main business district of Ocean Beach – Newport Avenue. On Newport you will find restaurants (ask about our favorites), antique stores, coffee houses, bars, bike and surf shops. On Wednesday evenings Newport Avenue features a Farmer’s Market where you can find local fruits, vegetables and flowers, street performances and food vendors.

The bicycle path just in the back of the house takes you up and down the coast - bicycles are located on the property for your use, as are games and beach toys.

BEACH HOUSE - DOG BEACH SAN DIEGO

  • 5 of 5

The house was block from beach, very accessible to local restaurants, shops and dog beach. The view from balcony was very beautiful, watching sunsets and sailboats go by, very peaceful. Rooms were very modern and the appliances were new. The owner was reachable all times, for any questions and super sweet! The price was right, the location was perfect and the vacation was memorable for the whole family. I would highly recommend this house as a vacation rental in San Diego, so close to everything.

Perfect house for a family!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed everything in this house!

The kitchen is fully equipped to cook, the rooms have enough intimacy to fit 2 couples and one kid, the 6 bikes are perfect to enjoy the area and there is plenty of toys for our little boy.

We really recommend this place!

Fabulous accommodations and amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved our stay at this historical beach bungalow. The home is updated and clean with anything and everything you could ever need. Just steps away from the water and dog beach the location couldn't get any better. I would highly recommend this rental. Some of our favorites: watching sunsets and sunrises from the rooftop deck, taking the beach cruisers for a spin, walking the path/beach right from the backyard, people watching from the back deck, walking distance to many coffee shops and restaurants. The only negative comment to make is due to the airplane noise. The house sits in the flight path and at times the noise was a nuisance.

Fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a beautiful vacation in this lovely house. Its situated right near the awesome Ocean Beach and Dogs Beach. Short drive to tons of stuff to do and explore. The house was kitted out with all the stuff that we could need - towels, kitchen goodies, washing machine and dryer, boogie boards! Would love to come and visit again!! :) Thank you for a great experience.
