Come stay in our beautiful, bohemian 1920's beach house bungalow centrally located two blocks from the ocean, and a few blocks from downtown, restaurants, shops, and the famous Ocean Beach Pier. We are a few minutes drive from Sea World and Mission Beach (with the famous Belmont Park roller coaster), 10-15 minutes from the San Diego Airport, and 10-20 minutes from Balboa Park and the zoo, the Padres Stadium, the Gaslamp District, Little Italy and Old Town.
The totally private enclosed wrap-around secret garden is a focal point of the house, and we invite you to enjoy a cup of coffee outside, or lay in the hammock and read a book under the bougainvillea flowers!
The house includes:
2 Bedrooms + queen sized fold-out couch
Two off street parking spaces
Full kitchen - fridge, pots/pans, dishes, stove, microwave
Flat screen TV with laptop hookups with sound and video (please bring your own laptop to take advantage of our DVD collection)
Wireless internet (There is NO Cable TV but Red Box is a block away)
Boogie boards and beach towels
Perhaps the best feature of the house is the huge, private wrap-around tropically landscaped garden with an outdoor dining area and a separate private lounging space with two hammocks. This is a two-bedroom, one bathroom house. It will accommodate up to 6 adults, with one queen bed in the master, a queen futon in the second bedroom and a queen sized pullout sofa in the living room. There is a full bath (tub/shower), as well as a small kitchen (with utensils - dishes, pots/pans, and basic condiments) for those times you want to stay in and cook a meal. Perfect after shopping for fresh food during Wednesday's Farmers' Market.
We're right around the corner from public transit - bus #923 drops you off on on Broadway in the heart of downtown San Diego (~20 min. bus trip) and the Gaslamp District.
Check-in is after 4 p.m. and check-out is no later than 11 A.M. If you would like a later checkout or earlier check in, please check with us in advance and we will let you know if it is possible.
Sorry, no pets. This is a strict policy and any violation will result in additional fines per the rental agreement. This is a private home in the off-season, so please treat it with respect as you would your own home. We have a cat, and so this may not be a suitable place if you or anyone in your party has a cat allergy.
As with the majority of the greater downtown SD area, airplanes can be heard from our home. Although it is convenient to have the airport so close by, the noise affects some people more than others.
House rules and rental terms include:

Downtown Ocean Beach Bungalow, Blocks from Sand! Pacific Beach, California
Additional Location Information
We are located in Ocean Beach, the bohemian beach town lovingly referred to by locals as "OB." Our house is situated two blocks from the sand, and you can actually hear the waves from the house on a quiet night when the ocean is particularly loud! We are within walking distance of all the local shops and restaurants, as well as convenient stores, grocery stores, movie kiosks, and little artist galleries and stores. There is TONS to do in OB, but there is also tons to do all around San Diego - and luckily OB is just a stones throw (a 5-15 minutes car ride) away from nearly all the most popular sites and attractions. We have two off-street parking spaces that make your vacation totally stress free, so you can come and go as you please. There are also hourly car rental places in the area if you choose to go that route. There are plenty of surfboard and other ocean-fun equipment rentals nearby. And if all you desire is a quiet, private getaway, you will love our totally enclosed private garden hideaway - it's one of the only private houses in the area with a private entrance, private yard, and wrap-around fence!
