I appreciate and offer good, old fashioned customer service - and aim to delight my guests. Lost your way in unfamiliar surroundings? Call me. Unsure about local romantic or family-friendly restaurants? Text me. Forgot your anniversary and need something special right away? Email me, I’m here to help.

Why Rodney chose San Diego County

Welcome to Ocean Beach (OB), where the sun sets on San Diego!

OB is a low key beach community filled with flair and personality. Said differently, OB offers the pitch perfect throw-back groovy vibe of a vintage Southern California beach town, coupled with friendly locals, great dining, and a vibrant beach and surf scene.

The cottage is conveniently located close to restaurants, shopping, and all the sites and attractions San Diego is known for - a veritable wonderland to spend entire days with family and friends (all within a short walk or drive).

Welcome to San Diego!

What makes this cottage unique

The Sunset Cottage sits in the San Diego residential neighborhood of Ocean Beach (OB) - between Sunset Cliffs and the OB business district. The cottage is close enough to stay connected to the local scene (walk to the public beach, restaurants, dining and shopping) but far enough away to enjoy quite relaxation, sounds of splashing waves, and the ease of on-street parking - often right in front of the cottage.

The Sunset Cottage is two blocks from the coastline and secluded beaches, and is a short 10-15 min stroll to shops, restaurants, entertainment, and the public beach - offering lifeguard-supervised swimming and surfing areas, restrooms, and showers.

The Sunset Cottage is centrally located and a short 5-15 min drive to most area Universities, Sea World, Lego Land, Animal Safari Park, Downtown/Convention Center, and Balboa Park - the nation's largest urban cultural park. Balboa Park is home to 15 major museums, renowned performing arts venues, beautiful gardens and the world famous San Diego Zoo. The Park has an ever-changing calendar of museum exhibitions, plays, musicals, concerts, and classes—all in the beautiful and timeless setting.

Enjoy your visit!

This lovely Ocean Beach cottage allowed us to have a wonderful San Diego vacation!

Rodney was a great host, he was quick to answer any questions, and was very prompt taking care of a glitch with the keyless entry.

Everything in Ocean Beach is an easy walk from the cottage. There is a small market with a deli and great wine section. Plenty of restaurants and shops nearby. Really a cool vibe, old beach town feel.

Very convenient/easy to get to from the airport. Also quick drive to anything-Sea World, Balboa Park and downtown.

If you wanted, you could just stay in OB without having to go anywhere else. Sunsets right from the porch!

I would definitely recommend to friends/family...and would love to return!

This place is awesome! It's very cozy with colorful decor. It's located in a really nice area, where my daughter and I felt so comfortable. We enjoyed cooking together in the kitchen. We also had fun walking around the area. Overall we loved it and would love to come back!

Vintage cottage with modern flair.

  • 5 of 5

Well appointed, well located and well managed. A winning trio!

The slice of ocean view is wonderful, especially at sunset.

Rodney, our host, was responsive and attentive. I would highly recommend the property for anyone looking for a stylish stay in Ocean Beach.

Inspired Beach Living!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our 3-night stay in Rodney's Sunset Cottage! The decor is amazingly inspired with Tommy Bahama bedding, Nicole Miller accent pillows and great artwork everywhere! The Tempur-beds are just like we sleep in a home so very comfortable and relaxing! The well-equipped kitchen helped our family of four stay on budget with some meals in so we could go out and enjoy local favorites like OB Noodle House and Mitch's Seafood at the Loma Point sport fishing docks for dinner. Yum! The beach cottage garden is beautiful and a short distance to downtown OB and Sunset Cliffs. This is our second Christmas in San Diego and we hope to keep coming back year after year! Sure beats our bitter cold winter back home.

The thing is, OB and the OB Cottage offer a cozy, fun, safe, and clean respite for all to enjoy, but there is even more to offer in the surrounding area. If you're not from San Diego or have not visited before, indulge for a moment in things all San Diegans appreciate:

1. Nothing brightens a day more than the sunbathing seals in La Jolla.

2. Except maybe doing some sunbathing yourself.

3. Mexican food isn't a cuisine. It's a lifestyle.

4. To be clear, the grungiest-looking places are always the most delicious.

5. When it comes to enjoying the great outdoors, the best beach hike ever is at Torrey Pines State Park.

6. And sometimes you just need to get naked outdoors. That's where skinny dipping at Black's Beach comes in.

7. San Diego farmers markets are to die for. And they're open year-round. Don't miss OB's market on Newport Ave every Wednesday starting at 4:00 PM.

8. Because, seasons? What are seasons?

9. The Self-Realization Fellowship gardens are free and wonderful.

10. Though Balboa Park is pretty hard to top.

11. San Diego has been deemed America's craft beer capital.

12. If you don't surf, skate or practice yoga, you should or will after your visit.

13. For the record: 'Beach bum' is not a derogatory term.

14. Nothing beats a San Diego sunset on the beach (especially in OB).

15. Except maybe a San Diego sunset seen from a hot air balloon. We have a lot of hot air balloons.

16. And last but not least, San Diegans know how to keep it classy.

Enjoy your visit!
