“Delightful home walking distance to OB with AC, private patio, parking and lots of extras.”
Reviewed October 5, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Everything was as advertised--even cuter in person and very clean, updated. Since this was a 6-day stay in August, we really appreciated the central air conditioning (not just a window unit in a bedroom). It worked great! We have a smaller car, a Nissan Versa Note, and were able to park ok. It was so nice to be able to drive right up to the gate that opens to the private patio/yard area with grill and table. There's even an outdoor shower to wash off sandy feet from the beach which is a block away. There are wooden steps to go up to the entry door, both from the patio and from the front walkway that goes out onto the street. These were not a problem for us and we are 60/67 years old. It was quiet all around--no problems with partiers.

There were all kinds of condiments in the fridge for our use, which was nice, such as ketchup, mustard, mayo, relish, salsa, salad dressing, etc. The granite counter tops were beautiful and cooking on a gas stove is always a plus.

We enjoyed having Netflix to watch on the large flat screen TVs in the evenings and being able to step outside and see the fireworks nightly at Sea World.

There were many thoughtful little extras such as iron/ironing board, large bottles of shampoo and conditioner, bathroom spray, first aid kit, hair dryer, bath towels, beach towels, beach chairs and umbrella, washer and dryer, clothes detergent and liquid softener, books about the history of Ocean Beach which were fun to read, a basket of brochures about things to do in SD, plus a very helpful binder with all kinds of info and even copies of menus from local restaurants. All of these things plus the cleanliness and decor of the property show just how attentive to detail and thoughtful the owners Rich and Adrienne are. They totally respected our privacy and yet were quick to answer any texts we sent them.

We do not have a dog and appreciated that even though this is a pet-friendly property, there was no evidence of any kind that pets had been in the rental or in the outdoor spaces. As I said it was very clean, with cleaning supplies in the closet if needed.

It has easy freeway access to drive anywhere in San Diego you would want to go, but it is also highly walkable to go to the beach, or downtown OB to restaurants, antique shops, etc.

Ocean Beach does have a Dog Beach, which does smell really bad, but there is the regular beach right next to it which doesn't stink and has plenty of room to sit under your beach umbrella and watch the surfers. There's also a large parking lot and grassy area with picnic tables. The smell from Dog Beach seems to be very localized to that part of the beach.

We feel that the quality of the place we stay has a big effect on how much we enjoy the vacation and we enjoyed our stay very much. Thank you Rich and Adrienne!

“A quiet and well maintained vacation rental close to the beach”
Reviewed August 3, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Richard and Adrienne have a beautiful rental with all the amenities included. They have developed a "private" unit with its own perfectly landscaped yard. We found everything included (BBQ, bicycles, bedding, towels, etc.) to be top quality. The dog beach is close by and our lab/golden retriever had a great time. A massive park and excellent restaurants are a short walk from the rental unit. All in all, this is a superior rental.

“Great Experience”

This was a really good experience. We stayed with our son, daughter in law and 18 month old granddaughter. Everything you could want on a family holiday was provided including beach towels, bikes, boogie boards, games for the kids. It was very clean and the welcome bottle of wine was much appreciated. The information folder very useful. A short walk to the beach and also to the village cafes and restaurants.The enclosed yard was good for us with a child and also for guests with pets. The only problem I have with recommending it, is that more people will stay...and it might not be available the next time we wish to stay!

We chose Ocean Beach as our San Diego destination because we wanted to share the beach with our lab, Chet. Rich and Adrienne's rental cottage is one short block from Ocean Beach Dog Park. It is also only a few blocks from great food and brews, and the OB People's Market where we ended up buying most of our food. And we were glad we did. The cottage had everything we needed. Meals were a breeze to prepare and a delight to eat outside in the private backyard. The cottage was incredibly comfortable and clean, and the AC worked like a charm on a weekend that was balmier than usual (although we didn't mind the warm weather a bit).
Rich and Adrienne are perfect hosts. They were friendly and helpful throughout the rental process. We are so glad we were able to spend time at their place.
