“Ocean Beach retreat”
Reviewed June 1, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

We fully enjoyed our stay at the Ocean Beach house. First I will warn you that the house is small and somewhat old. The doors creak and don't close or open easily. That's the worst I can say. Everything else, from the owners to the location to the amenities was fantastic! The house is one block from the beach and easy walking distance to restaurants, bars, breweries, wine tasting, and convenience and grocery stores. The owners put up with me when I had a cell phone issue as I had to swap phones within 24 hours of travel due to a work issue. I had to follow up with a new phone with the owners, who put up with my constant requests until we finally had everything in order. Adrienne was kind enough to leave a welcome bottle of wine, and replied to messages as to restaurants, bars, and local events. Very pleased with this rental and hope to visit again.

“Wonderful beach cottage with private backyard”
Reviewed May 7, 2018 for a stay in April 2018

This is the second year we have rented this beach cottage and we love it! Being close to the beach was a must for us, and having a dog friendly rental with a private backyard makes this place absolutely perfect. The cottage is cozy but not cramped, and has everything you need to relax and get into the beach vibe. The backyard is very relaxing and we found ourselves out there sipping coffee or local smoothies, almost every morning. There are plenty of local food options and Surf Rider Pizza is right around the corner. Try their Philly cheese-steak! If you are looking for the perfect beach getaway, you can't go wrong with this OB rental. We will be booking again next year!

“Perfect little house just moments from the sand!”
Reviewed July 27, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

This house was perfect for our family girls trip! The area is very walkable, nearby parasailing was awesome! We also biked up to Mission Beach for the day. The private courtyard was nice and shady to come back to in the hot afternoons. We all had fun trying out the boogie boards, though I think I could use more practice! The outdoor shower was really helpful to us from tracking as much sand into the house. We had nothing but awesome food experiences in the area, but both Laura and Star the Bartender at BBQ House were our particular favorites!
The owners were very sweet, checking that we made it to the house ok and even brought us some fresh ground coffee!
I hope I have an excuse to come back to San Diego to stay here sometime!

“Great Place!”
Reviewed June 19, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We had a terrific stay here. The location is fantastic!. The house is beautifully furnished and stocked with everything you need. It makes such a difference to find things like coffee and coffee filters, tea, spices, oil, vinegar, condiments, soaps, and detergents all there. We enjoyed the bikes and all the beach equipment . The outdoor area is very pleasant. The owners are friendly and were super responsive when a couple of minor issues came up. Thank you for a lovely stay!

“Great Beach House”
Reviewed May 31, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

I would highly recommend Richard and Adriennes Beach House. It is very well located with easy access to the beach, and walking distance to shopping and restaurants. The property is immaculate with updated appliances and lots of attention to detail. It is a lively neighborhood which we enjoyed, but the immediate neighbors were quiet.

“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

people found this review helpful

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!
