Overview

About the property

2 parking spaces, single family house, 3 Bdrm, 2 Bath, kids welcome

The single family house is 2.5 blocks from the beautiful sandy beach, and is within a few minutes walk to a big grocery shop and several restaurants. Mission Bay park, Seaworld, San Diego Zoo, Old Town, SD downtown and Point Loma, are all relatively near by. There are two off street parking spots, a big backyard and an unfailing internet wifi connection :-)

The house was remodeled in 2015. It's best for 4 adults and two kids as the third bed room has a bunk bed more suitable for kids or young teenagers than adults. There are also two kid high chairs and two playyards for our guests to use as needed.

About Sam Tsang

We are an ex- military professional couple who finished military service in San Diego and since lived in San Diego for more than 15 years. We both have full time day jobs. We purchased this property in summer of 2015 and jokingly named this property "Dream of Freedom". The name represents our hope to be able to achieve financial freedom one day. :-)

Sam Tsang purchased this house in 2015

Why Sam Tsang chose San Diego County

In our view the location of this house is gold: all are within very comfortable walking distance: shops, restaurants, groceries, beach, bus stops. The San Diego public transit can take you very conveniently to Old Town, Downtown, Sea World, Zoo, Balboa park and is also connected to the Amtrak, trolley station. You can have a greener life here, walk a lot for yourself and take the public transit for our climate :-)

Perfect Beach Family Vacation House

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our 3 kids and it was amazing! The location is perfect. We walked to the beach one day and drove to many other San Diego attractions. The house is clean, modern and comfortable with lots of useful amenities (train table, high chairs, plenty of dishes, BBQ, laundry). Communication with the owner was also top notch. He responded quickly to all my questions and was very accommodating. The house also felt very safe. My only recommendation would be darker curtains in the bedrooms (helpful with a baby!). If you've never been to OB, there is a lot of airplane noise so be forewarned! I sincerely hope we can stay in this house again! Our best VRBO experience yet!

This house was perfect for my family and a perfect walking location to the beach and Newport Ave. We plan on staying at this house next year as well.

Great place for family vacation, fenced yard perfect for small children, location of house convient.

  • 5 of 5

Great, happy with house and amenities.

Suggestions: Short on bath towels, 6 of us.

Wish there was a vacum cleaner or functional broom. Small waist high broom with broken dust pan made daily sweeping challenging.

Appreciated a previous tenant comment on fans. We brought 1 box fan and with the 2 stand up fan, each bedroom could get cooled off for the night.

Appreciated the locked gate in back, able to leave bikes in yard and feel comfortable. Another nice feature is alley did not go thru, cut down on foot traffic in alley.

Can walk to everything!

  • 5 of 5

This house is in a great location. Keeping in mind all of Ocean Beach hears the airport nearby it's actually not that bad. Flights seem to stop at night for the most part but OB is an amazing town!

So, with this house you can walk to all the best restaurants and shops very easily. The beach and pier are less than a mile away. The house is easy to spot from the street thanks to the red fence. Nice yard for outside eating and 2 parking spots on site!

Ocean Beach has almost no national chain stores or restaurants. How cool is that?! We had a great time looking up food on Yelp and trying new restaurants. This spot is even close enough to walk to the bay and the trails that go around it. Clean house, nice new fridge and it was plenty big enough for 4 adults and 2 small kids. Owner is fast to respond to any inquiries which made the trip much less stressful. Loved it and would recommend if you need parking for 2 and are looking for a spot that's walking distance to everything!

Clean, comfortable, well-appointed Ocean Beach house

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this clean, recently renovated house. We were able to leave our vehicles parked and walk everyplace we wanted to go in OB. There's plenty of comfortable space for 4 adults and 2 children and we could all eat together both indoors and out. It was well worth what we paid for an enjoyable week in OB in spite of a few days of June Gloom.

ocean beach
Car: not necessary

Ocean Beach (OB) community is about one square mile located right at the beach, with many restaurants, bars, café, shops within walking distance. You do not need a car for daily life in the community. Public transit can take you to all attractions, such as the zoo, downtown, Sea World, Old Town etc. Uber is also readily available to take you to places and much cheaper than taxi. OB residents resisted the encroachment of big franchise stores and maintained many unique small businesses in the community. People are friendly and happy. OB elementary school rating is 9 out of 10 on Zillow which says something about the neighborhood. There is a spirit of freedom and simplicity in OB. When visiting OB, you may feel very in touch with your true self -- do I really need my big house, fancy cars and stressful job? Maybe I could live in a small beach house at OB and retire early ?:-)

Ocean beach is very close to many of the major attractions of San Diego: the SD Zoo, Sea World, Balboa Park, Old Town.
