My husband and I used to travel to San Diego a couple times a year, but had not been back for a decade or so. We couldn't have asked for a better reintroduction to San Diego or the beach. Since it was just the two of us we stayed in the downstairs of the vacation condo. The space was immaculate,... More

This was a great find in Ocean Beach. We rented the vacation condo for a week and it was amazing. The back deck was awesome! It was a nice shaded area perfect for the adults, as the kids played games on the kid sized table. This was the perfect getaway for us and we hope to be back very soon!... More

This place is perfect for a relaxing and a surf beach vacation in OB very close the the beach you can be at the beach front within a minute from the B&B and and can walk to all the restaurants and shops. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The people and the atmosphere is great! I highly recommend it!

Stayed for three nights in August, 2014. I would highly recommend this BandB as an alternative to the pricey Downtown SD Bay and Mission Bay hotels. Location: the house is located on a quiet street within walking distance of the beach, sunset cliffs, OB shopping and restaurants, and the fishing pier. This is not in central San Diego, so if...

I really enjoyed this stay. As a single woman traveler, I felt right at home, safe and comfortable. I was among friends when dining with the other guests for breakfast and there was always a friendly atmosphere to greet me.

Very nice. It was nice and clean; the bed was quite comfortable. Hostess helpful & very nice. Only criticism is that the "breakfast" was all carbohydrates. We opted to have breakfast in the many cafes in Ocean Beach.

I just stayed here with my mom and sister. Sherri was absolutely amazing and very personable. Breakfast was fantastic and the room.., well, it doesn't get much better than this! Comfy bed, all the amenities you need as well. Special little touches that make the stay worth the lack of parking!
