I stayed at Ocean Beach Bed and Breakfast during a three week trip to the Bay Area, Portland, Seattle, Victoria and Vancouver. I went to law school and lived in the Bay Area and worked in San Francisco in the late 1980s (I'm a native of Los Angeles) and wish I had never left. I truly left my heart in... More

My daughter and I visited Ocean Beach Bed and Breakfast in September of 2014. Joanne was an excellent hostess and her cookies are scrumptious. Our room was lovely and the living room and kitchen quite comfy. It was a reasonable walk to the beach which we enjoyed each day of our stay. Joanne was willing to sit and discuss the... More

We had a lovely two room suite with private bath, the bed was super comfortable with quality bedding. There was a bay window sitting area where you could sit and watch the ocean waves and people on the beach. One down side was attempting to find a parking spot, sometimes a block or so away. There was a continual breakfast... More

We had the Ocean View Suite with en-suite bathroom. Our room as well as all shared rooms (kitchen, living room and dining room) were very clean, cosily furnished and did provide all necessary amenities. Upon arrival, Joanne gave us a warm welcome and was always available in case we had any questions or required recommendations e.g. for dinner. The breakfast... More

This was my 1st time on the West Coast... and my 1st stop in SF ! As I travel on my own this time, I looked for a place where I would feel "at home" - Even though the Ocean Beach Bnb was 20-30 minutes from Downtown, I chose it for its unique view on the Pacif ... and ended... More

My wife and I had a marvelous stay at Ocean Beach Bed and Breakfast. Joanne was pleasantly accommodating when we arrived late Tuesday night. It's worth the extra amount for the suite with the private bath. The queen bed was comfortable and quiet, the view perfect and the breakfasts delicious. We had the choice of cooking other items Joanne had... More

The B&B is wonderfully located close to Golden Gate Park, the Ocean, Cliff House, and just blocks from public transportation. We did have a rental car and did not have any issues with parking. We used buses for a few days to get into and around the city - it was pretty easy! Joanne is a gracious host and provides... More

My wife and I stayed in late October our hostess and accommodations were wonderful. We particularly loved our room with the view of the ocean. Public transportation is very accessible, but if you have a car the parking can be a challenge.
