Ocean Beach Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps up to 4

This bungalow is in a quiet residential neighborhood 4 block east of the beach. It is a very private space that is close to the beach but out of the hullabaloo. The kitchen has upscale appliances and countertops and the pantry is stocked with essentials. The LR has a futon that turns into another bed for guests. There is also an ottoman that folds out as a twin bed. It has a flat screen TV that can be seen from the living room, the kitchen, or the outside deck. The BR has a huge closet for clothes and luggage and plenty of storage on either side of the bed for your essentials. It has a large sliding door that opens to your private deck, a flat screen TV and a memory foam bed with fine linens. A washer and dryer with soap and softener are off the bathroom. The bathroom has razors, lotions, toothbrushes, toothpaste, body wash, shampoo as well as a hair dryer, flat iron and curling iron.

The outside patio is completely fenced; a very private retreat, with a barbeque grill, towels, and boogie boards on site. The Bungalow is equipped with air conditioning for your comfort.

About Linda

I grew up in the midwest, Columbus, Ohio, but left when I graduated to live in California. I met my husband in San Jose where we lived until moving to Olympia, Washington to raise our children. After 20 years, we decided we wanted to move back to California close to the beach. When we found Ocean Beach we knew this was the place for us. It took us 2 years to find an available place because houses were being sold as fast as they hit the market. We were lucky to find our place and to discover a sweet Bungalow located on the property. We have done many upgrades over the years but are thrilled to have found our "forever home." We hope you stay with us and discover the beauty and peacefulness of the property as well as the uniqueness of Ocean Beach.

Linda purchased this bungalow in 1998

Guestbook comments from the owner

Weather was really warm except for one day of rain which was ok. Had a really good time. Bungalow is really convenient to beaches, Sea World, Mission Bay, Old Town and freeways. Never had a problem finding parking on the streets even on busy weekend. Really convenient to walk to restaurants and bars in the evening. Did a nite stroll on the beach one evening - really nice. Back patio was nice for morning coffee and evening toddy. Dog loved it.

Everything one would need was supplied in Bungalow. Loved the extra goodies.

Lovely place!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the bungalow and I'm sure we will return. We time our San Diego stay so that we can watch baseball at Petco Park, which is only 15 minutes away. This location is near to many attractions and we love being able to walk to the beach. The bungalow is so well stocked with amenities, it feels almost like home. Such a quiet and cozy spot!

I lived in San Diego for three years and returned there for a wedding with my fiance. Linda was gracious and helpful, and I loved being in the perfect place (walking distance from the Main Street) in OB. We absolutely loved that all amenities were provided, and that they were great brands -- less to pack next time when we stay there with our puppy!

Great OB Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Rose Cottage! It had all the comforts of home and Linda went above and beyond with anything one would need during the stay: filtered water, dog dishes, laundry soap/shampoo, etc. we can't wait to go back!

Comfy and Cute

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect little home in a great location! It makes you feel like part of the neighborhood! I chatted with a neighbor and she also had wonderful things to say! They made us feel at home and the little home was very accommodating for my husband, son, and I, along with our 2 dogs! The location is very close to dog beach as well and had everything, just in case you forgot something! We will be visiting again soon and highly recommend this bungalow!

Wow , this was an amazing holiday home ... We did not want for anything. It's location was great too for evening strolls to the beautiful beach (sunsets are out of this world) . The town was so laid back and friendly, felt we were on holiday right from the start. Thank you for making our first trip to San Diego a memorable one .

Cozy, comfy & relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Linda & Steve have a great place to share with those of us visiting SD. They are gracious hosts and available if/when you need them but also they provide privacy & respect your space. They were on the front porch when we arrived and we settled into the Bungalow for a 3 day weekend. The Bungalow is nicely appointed and comfortable and safe. They have thought of almost every need one could have while traveling and we felt right at home during our stay. We brought our 13 pound rescue Tibetan Spaniel and he felt at home as well. The Bungalow has been updated/is modern and will soon have A/C for those few days that it does get HOT in OB! We love the OB community and enjoyed our walks and bike rides (brought our beach cruisers) down to Newport Ave for some great food (Mike's Taco Club, Hodad's & Bravo's - Nicco's will be on our next visit!) as well as a 10.5 mile ride throught OB, PB, MB up to Palasides Park. We took the pup to Dog Beach and he was on cloud 9 - still learning to socialize with other dogs - taking in all the friendly 4-legged beachgoers. It was most difficult to pack up and leave on Monday morning to head back to the 112+ heat of AZ but we are looking forward to a return stay - soon! Thank you Linda & Steve for a most enjoyable/memorable weekend and for sharing your slice of heaven with us!

Cheers ~ Angela, Tony & Cruz
