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.

Great experience!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at the bungalow! Linda and her husband were incredibly accommodating and made our first VRBO experience fantastic. We stayed for a week with our one year old. The bungalow was very well stocked with all sorts of extra amenities. The private patio was very nice. The bed was comfortable. The whole place was very clean. Absolutely everything we needed was provided and then some!! The location is great...Ocean Beach is very nice...and everything we wanted to see or do was only a short drive away. Finding parking was fairly easy. I would not hesitate to book this place!!!

Very nice beach getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our 2 little dogs stayed here for 3 nights in April. It was very nice! Everything we needed plus more. We walked to dog beach everyday with our dogs. It is about 5-6 blocks not to bad at all. We really enjoyed our time. Linda was very nice and helpful. I'm sure we will stay here again.

Christmas stay

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay. House had everything we needed. Location was great and quiet. Parking wasn't too bad. Two complaints, the couch wasn't comfortable for tv watching, but we were worn out each nite and wanted to watch tv and unwind. We also hit our shins on the bed all the time. Not sure how to prevent that besides trying to remember we were going to do it. I really recommend the place though.

Very private and nice.

The Beach Blanket Bungalow was perfect for our stay in SD!!!

  • 5 of 5

Myself, my husband, our 11 y.o. daughter and our miniature poodle spent Thanksgiving weekend in Ocean Beach at Linda and Steve's bungalow. We loved the location on a quaint street just off the beaten path, and within walking distance from shops, restaurants and the beach. Street parking was easy no matter what time we parked. The bungalow was a perfect size for our small family. It was fully stocked with food basics, toiletries, bedding and beach essentials. We never had a moment when we had to run out for something we forgot to bring. Linda and Steve have thought of all the details needed to really make their place feel like home.

We had a great time exploring the Ocean Beach neighborhood. We spent an entire afternoon at Dog Beach, and our daughter and dog were in heaven. We also spent a day at the amazing San Diego Zoo, which was just a short drive away. We had a fantastic weekend, but wish we could have stayed longer. Thank you Linda and Steve for sharing your slice of paradise with us. We highly recommend your place, and we can't wait to visit again!

Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Steve and Linda were great hosts. We loved staying at there property. It was clean and super cute. The kitchen was a big plus for us and they had all the pots and pans we needed to cook a healthy breakfast before hitting the beach for some fun! Also, it was nice to have separate rooms for sleeping, cooking and taking a shower. Linda had provided some bathroom supplies which was nice since we ran out of toothpaste and did not have to worry about going to the store to get some late at night!!
