About the property

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.

Great visit

  • 4 of 5

This is our fifth time and it was awesome again. Things need updating in the bedrooms ie really squeaky bed in master and the upper bunk is in need of a new mattress and the connection could be tightened. Ongoing maintenance but the place is fabulous! And these comments aren't a reflection on its fabulousness!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the feedback Cathy! It's always great to have you and your family!! I had my handyman scheduled to come take care of some things, but was waiting for gap in reservations and he actually came on the 27th, the day after you left, to tighten the beds, put in a new screen door, and some other items. I did not know there was an issue with the upper bunk mattress, so thank you for letting me know, I will get that replaced. We try to do upgrading type activities every year, at the end of last year, we focused on some outdoor projects, repainting the adirondack chairs, the deck/patio, put up a new shed. This October, I have the calendar blocked off to do some indoor upgrades in the bedrooms and kitchen; so you will see some good improvements the next time you stay! Thanks again!

Very relaxed, close to dog beach and very comfortable

  • 4 of 5

We just returned from our 2nd visit. Our son lives in OB, so the location is perfect. Plus, we bring our dogs, and he brings his. The yard is fenced and perfect for pets. The property is right along the river, close to dog beach. Great little community. Everything you need is right there. Only draw back would be the airplanes, starting at about 630 am. you kinda get used to it though. Also, a special thank you to Amy who held my reservation, even though I neglected to make my second payment until the night before our arrival. Thanks Amy!

Best vacation home yet!

My mother and I came up and stayed for several days. The property manager was extremely responsive and sweet with answering every question we had. The house was clean, and beautiful.

Perfect pet vacation

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late on Friday with just enough time to hit dog beach before the sun went down and our dog couldn't have been more happy. If you have a dog and like to vacation with them this is the perfect place to stay. If you do not like dogs then you might want to stay away from Ocean Beach period. Dog Beach is feet away and the whole city seems to be dog friendly and dogs are everywhere which is awesome. The OB Beach home was perfect for a family of 5 and has everything you need to prepare home cooked meals but is close to many restaurants and bars. I will definitely stay here again in the future. Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us.

The Perfect Family & Pup Getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

I loved the beach getaway in Ocean Beach. From the moment we walked in the gate, everything was perfect. The accommodations were bright, modern, clean, comfortable and well stocked for every event. The kitchen and bathroom had everything we needed for a great stay. Plenty of seating for family and friends both inside and out. The bbq was handy, the fire pit worked great for drinks and conversation.

My sons Great Dane came over on and off which is why I booked this unit with the fenced yard and the back gate lead right out to the dog beach. There were dog beds, dog bowls, dog toys and even blankets and towels specifically designated for the pup. The view of the sunset and sunrise out the back gate was beautiful.

The location was perfect for the beach, the main part of town was very close and easy to navigate. The drive into the city was really easy to navigate. I would recommend making it to the OB Farmers Market on Wed. nights.

We plan to stay here again next year.

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.
