We stayed at Ocean B&B Sept 2011. I would describe Ocean Beach B&B as traditional Bed and Breakfast accommodation and there are two rooms available. During our visit we stayed in both rooms, the first room has a bed, TV and wardrobe and a bathroom across the hall, the other more expensive room has a larger living space with an... More

I stayed here for a week in June, and it was such a lovely experience. Joanne is fantastic, and it felt like home. We're vegetarian, so she always had a different special breakfast from a local natural bakery for us (my waist would have preferred to just have the cereal, but the choice was mine lol). I'm not sure what... More

This is a great location, a ten-minute walk down a steep hill to a gorgeous beach, with bus service to downtown SF. The rooms are beautifully and simply decorated and very clean. The hostess was accommodating and understanding of the challenging personal circumstances under which I was visiting the city. This was the perfect place to stay.

There are only two rooms in this beautiful home and Joanne the hostess, who lives in the house, does a great job managing this property. My wife and I lived in SFO for five years but we now live in New York. Our son currently lives in the Sunset District of the SFO, so when we visit him we were... More

I enjoyed the great hospitality together with this cosy quiet bed & breakfast. I would reccomend to everyone looking for a small place quite near the famous Cliff House restaurant. Its a private 2 room establishment but just what we needed after a long trip. will hope to go back oneday.

We spent two nights in this very nice house with a lovely hostess. We booked the family room with ocean views which would be considered a suite in any hotel. The room has a private living area and lots of personal touches. The breakfast was fantastic and the home-made cookies from Joanne a not to be missed experience. It´s not... More

We are frequent visitors to San Francisco and have stayed at many fine B&Bs. The Ocean Beach Bed and Breakfast didn't disappoint. We can highly recommend it to visitors who want a quiet, peaceful place to return to after a full day in San Francisco. It felt more like a home than a regular B&B. If you have a car... More

I grew up in the Richmond district, so coming back for a stay with friends was a chance to show them how the "real" San Franciscan's live. This house is exactly what I wish my childhood house had been. All the authentic feel I remembered, but everything (kitchen, bathrooms, windows, beds, etc.) was updated and much better than "in the... More
