What Past Guests Are Saying
Instantly at home
We hired the vintage spanish gem cottage & the separate apartment for our stay as we had my parents and a friend travelling with us plus our 2 young children.
Helene was welcoming and generously brought us some extra grocery items upon our arrival.
We adored the colorful touches that have been incorporated into both the cottage and the apartment. They really add to the fun feel of the place and have been done with flair.
The location is wonderful
- few minutes walk to OB pier
- 5-10mins drive to Seaworld
- 10-15mins to the zoo
- 5 min walk to the heart of OB
- A great farmers market type store (people's market)within a 2 min walk where you can get healthy wholesome hot meals upstairs. (shuts at 9pm most nights I think)
There is an extra day-bed and a rollaway bed in a small room off the kitchen in the cottage which was perfect for the kids. This is in addition to the 2 main bedrooms in the cottage.
The shower was great - something we really appreciated after being on the road for a while.
The apartment was very funky and fun and my parents loved being up there.
We had a great stay and would recommend for sure.
An absolute Diamond on The Beach!
This place is super cute, with an un-matched style that perfectly compliments the bohemian beach town of Ocean Beach. After so many generic cookie-cutter hotel stays, it is a relief to stay somewhere with soul. Helene and Preston were a treat to work with, and really went above and beyond in making sure my stay was special. The property is huge, with a big yard area for barbeque parties, and is close to the beach. Everything was super clean and I kept discovering charming new books, artifacts, art, and architecture behind every door and around every corner on the property, even after days of stay.
Beautiful, and unique!
I stayed at Helene and Preston's beach house in august and had an amazing time. Its located in a quintissential California beach town, where you can walk to everything: a gorgeous beach, great restaurants, shops and bars. Helene and Preston have added their touch to every room in the house. The house is super comfortable and really stylish at the same time. Also, they made us feel really at home by leaving a welcome note and lots of information on fun things to do in the area - plus coffee, tea, and all the essentials. Cant wait to go back!
