About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

San Diego is a world-class vacation destination with endless offerings for entertainment, dining, and adventure. Be transported to a true beach haven where you can hear the waves crashing on the soft white sand and smell the fresh ocean breezes right from your beach home. Located only one block from the beach in San Diego's most original beach town, Ocean Beach is known for its laid-back lifestyle and artistic influence. This isn't just a neighborhood, it's a community and the locals pride themselves on 'no bad days in OB'.

This is the perfect home to enjoy some quality time with your friends and family, including your four-legged family members! Your dog will love being only one block from the leash-free dog-friendly beach and you will love being only a block from the people-only beach. If you're looking for a little action on the water, you can enjoy surfing, boogey boarding, swimming, body surfing, and volleyball. In the evening, roast marshmallows by a beach bonfire as you watch the bright orange sun disappear beyond the horizon with the sound of another beach-goer's guitar hanging in the air.

San Diego is an all seasons destination - there's no bad time to visit this amazing city! In the spring and fall watch whales migrate just beyond the end of the local OB Pier, or perhaps take one of the kayak tours and have a once in a lifetime experience up close with these great creatures. Flip flops and sunglasses are the dress code in this laid-back beach town. You can easily explore the distinct neighborhoods from Ocean Beach to Mission Beach and on to Pacific Beach by jumping on one of the available beach cruisers and hopping from a quaint waterfront café to a beachfront bar offering the best fish tacos in San Diego. You will be surrounded by the sound of friendly sea birds as you dine and stroll along the Ocean Beach Pier, one of the longest piers on the west coast. Do you enjoy feasting on a freshly made Spinach and Feta Crepes and delicious homemade sweets? Don't miss San Diego’s largest Farmers Market once a week right here in Ocean Beach!

This spacious 2 bedroom beach home sleeps 6 people comfortably. It has been completely renovated with a stainless steel kitchen, hardwood flooring, and a travertine tile bathroom. It's fully furnished with everything that has your complete comfort in mind. You bring nothing but your sandals and a good book!

Relax in the large backyard while you sit around the firepit roasting marshmallows and watching the Sea World fireworks that fill the sky with rainbow showers at dusk every evening in the summer. The yard backs up to the bike path which leads right to the beach where you can ride along the beautiful marsh area and cross over to the Mission Beach boardwalk.

To make your four-legged family member feel as welcome as you do, this home also offers dog beds and dog bowls.

It's all here within a stroll of your Beach home. Whether your palate wants fresh shucked oysters and a tall beer at South Beach Bar and Grill or a 3 course elegant meal paired with a great local Californian wine at 3rd Corner Wine Bar. You can then dance the night away or watch a local band at nearby Newport Avenue where something is always happening.

Want to go beyond this happy lazy town of Ocean Beach? OB is centrally located and is about 10 minutes driving distance to all major attractions including Sea World, Balboa Park, the San Diego Zoo, Historic Old Town San Diego, and the downtown Gaslamp District. If skipping over the border to Mexico is your fancy, bring your passport and in 20 minutes you can be enjoying a whole new world.

Whatever you want you will find right here at your beach front home.

Right at the end of I-8 and close to beach, food and entertainment.

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyable property providing backyard escapes from the busy beach community of Ocean Beach San Diego yet perfectly close to the beaches especially the dog beach area; Nicely appointed and comfortable for a family of 4 whether of the human kind or a combination that includes a couple of dogs. A great location to base your San Diego adventures.

Warning: do not book this dive!!

  • 1 of 5

I would give this place zero stars if I could because the owner ripped me off. We booked this place as a spot for us to stay with our dog for a family reunion in San Diego. Our family came all the way from Canada to meet up with other members of our family who were also staying elsewhere in San Diego during our March break. We never got to see the rest of the family because we had to leave... this place was DISGUSTING ! My allergies went wild. There was MOLD on the kitchen windows, and thick grime on the counters. This place is dark too with very few windows. The beds were a joke. The bunk beds wobbled so badly they have holes in them and looked like they had been chewed. The carpets were the worst though. They were filthy and smelled like URINE. I’m serious it was unbelievable. There were DIRTY DISHES in the cupboard, DUST and grime everywhere. Th couch is dark brown and also smelled. Oh, the airport is so close the planes sounded like they were gonna land in the living room. This totally freaked out my dog. I wouldn’t put up my worst enemy here. My daughter was laughing saying this place is so bad it’s funny. But, the saddest thing is that when I called the owner she claimed to have reduced our visit payment to three nights but instead she charged us a two week rate for only two nights of sleepless hell. She said she would refund our cash but she totally lied and ripped us off. Don’t book here if you don’t want to get ripped off! I’ve stayed in VRBO rentals at least 5 other times and never had a bad experience.... this just shows there are con artists out there out to take your money and ruin your vacation. Don’t get sucked in to this hole. Beware

Perfect Peaceful Paradise (Puppy Paradise Also)

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful experience. The home was clean, provided all necessities, and comfortable for our family. I had to go to a training and brought my family for a mini vacation including our service dog in training (my daughter has special needs) and this was the perfect location to do it. By the Beach, DOG beach for that matter. Our pup had a chance to be a dog and play also. The parking and design of the house was conducive to our needs. The shower was amazing. Very nicely remodeled. We Bar-B-Qued, baked, cooked and the kitchen had it all. Tongs, pots, pans, baking dishes, etc. A Great Dishwasher to top it off. The house has it's usual wear and tear I imagine for being a rental. The fridge door missing it's handle, a couple drawers missing theirs as well, towel hooks gone, some damage to baseboards, etc. But in NO way impending on the use and functionality of the house. I just mention it here simply because some people expect complete perfection and need to be realistic as to what they may find. To us , it was Perfection. To wake up to go have a stroll along the beach. To view pretty sunsets over an oceanview just down the street. To have comfortable beds to sleep on. Entertainment and reliable working Wi-Fi. Treats like cookies and coffee were provided. A Full size Refrigerator for ample storage. We enjoyed the Farmer's Market on Wednesday night (Yummy Lobster rolls and Fresh tasty fruits and vegetables). Convenience to drive to Supermarkets or stores nearby. Dog parks galore. They even provided inflatable comfy dog beds, toys, leashes, etc. letting us feel that our important asset to our family (and true member of our family) was welcomed indeed. This is a very important feature as our pup continues her training to allow for my daughter to be as independent as possible. Thank you so much for opening up your home, and sharing this wonderful piece of paradise with us. We would very much like to return.

Great location and super cute place!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Amy for such a wonderful stay.

We loved how spacious the rental was, and it had everything we needed to be comfortable. The heater worked great for the cold nights and we had plenty of pots and pans to make meals.

We really loved the backyard and how there was a walking path to the beach.

Great location - we walked to dinner, coffee in the am, and took great neighborhood walks.

Also nice to enjoy Netflix on the tv! :)

Will definitely return. Thanks again!
