Oceanfront cottage with unobstructed views & deck - steps to the water!

Welcome to your new favorite getaway on the bluffs at Ocean Beach, where the views of the Pacific extend for as far as the eye can see. This newly remodeled, oceanfront home has one level of living space and a wonderful deck where you can take in the splendor of the Southern California coast. Come home from the beach each day to prepare home-cooked meals in a kitchen with stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and all the comforts of home.

What's nearby:
This oceanfront home sits less than a mile south of Ocean Beach Pier and the many shops and restaurants in the area - all of which are within an easy bike ride, drive, or stroll. After a lunch of fresh fish tacos, you can head down Sunset Cliffs Boulevard with its many overlooks, trails, and tide pools to explore. Seaport Village and the Gaslamp Quarter (seven miles east) offer great shopping experiences and fantastic eateries. You'll also be just three miles south of SeaWorld and six miles west of Balboa Park, which houses museums, playgrounds, natural gardens, and the famous San Diego Zoo.

We truly enjoyed our stay and were pleasantly surprised. The house was clean, well stocked and appeared exactly how the pictures portrayed. Gorgeous views of the ocean and a nice quiet neighborhood. It does lack some privacy on the patio, but we didn’t have any issues with this. My only suggestion would be to add some door mats both outside and inside of the front door and patio as the surface gets a little damp being so close to the ocean, it will help prevent falls. Otherwise, we had a lovely stay and truly enjoyed it. We will definitely book again in the future.

Great location and views. The kitchen was good and the bed was very comfortable. It had plenty of space for the two of us, although the layout of the second bedroom is a little strange (and you need to be very careful not to trip going into it).

The porch badly needs painting. Limited privacy - people from the street look right onto the porch. The table in front of the couch is wobbly. Overall, I expected a little more given the cost, but it was a pleasant stay and my wife did love the views of the ocean and the pelicans.

This property is great clean and very close to the Beach. We loved our stay a lot but one issue we had was the last bedroom had no ventilation and the stairs to the lady bedroom are a hazard because where the stairs are there is a lower ceiling and either your making sure u don’t hit your head or you make sure you don’t fall from the stairs. Overall the money for th property is great but defiantly be carful in the house because of the stairs. We loved the house and the beach view. Spending the birthday there was amazing and cozy.

Beautiful home with an amazing view. House is very clean and well appointed with everything you need. Has a Walk-through bedroom that is great if you have kids. Bathrooms are big and have ample room for everyone.

The location is convenient and the view expansive. Neighborhood is quiet and walkable to food and other ocean views.

2nd time at this spot. It’s all about the wall of windows and deck that is right on a cliff between sunset cliffs and OB. The best view EVER. A comfy couch, great kitchen. The configuration in the back of the house is a little odd- some narrow stairs down to a huge laundry room and then step up to 2nd bedroom. The beds are both smallish and very soft. It was spotless clean and after I made a call to report no towels (a mistake I’m sure) towels showed up with a very nice lady 1/2 hr. later. It’s very expensive, but I’ll stay again.

Arrival instructions were very clear. Parking, door key code, very easy. Ocean view and sounds were perfect. Sitting on deck very relaxing. Unit was clean and comfortable. The only issue was one evening the ocean breezes didn’t kick in and even with all the fans going it was very warm (83 degrees). Overall though, a very enjoyable stay.

We definitely loved the location, big bay windows, kitchen, and view of the ocean.

However, vacasa and the property management should specify that there is no access down to the beach and there is no beach. Also the rental is right off the street so there are a lot of people who come near the property. And right across the street there is a Apt complex that has lights that flicker all night and don’t go off. This really takes away from the home, stars, location. And for this price, those items should be known. With pictures that represent exactly where this place is and what’s around it.

If you want to hear the ocean waves crashing over rocks, then you’ll love this cottage.

Amazing family week
Paul W. Jun 2021
Very beautiful view. Comfortable beds. Great bathrooms. The house needs some maintenance. Air conditioning does not work, which can be ok on the ocean but the back bedroom has no windows to let the breeze in. The door to the outside should have a locking screen door to let the breeze in. The entrance into the back bedroom is a trip hazard and should have a sign and some yellow tape like the stairway. My wife tripped and fell and injured her ankle. Overall nice place but it needs some maintenance.
Cynthia P. May 2021
We loved sitting on the deck and watching the waves. The interior was very nice and well stocked kitchen. The exterior needs some maintenance

Great place to stay

The view is great, but ZERO privacy. The photos are misleading - it's like 50% as nice as the photos. Broken furniture. Dirty beer stinky counter. No AC. The best part is that periodically the kitchen sink gurgeles and produces strong sewage smell. Street parking is nearly impossible which is a problem becuase the provided garage is blocked half the time by the neighbors cars or the molding, stinking, and overflowing trash cans. Naturally, the garbage piled up for the five days we stayed here drew flies. So the kitchen has a few garbage flies kicking it with us at all times. Perhaps a screen door? You'll love this, the house has no AC, so the fan in the bathroom downstairs blows super heated air instead of venting the steam from the shower. The two beds are small - not queen. More like full. Cooking:. The grill is great and had full propane. The kitchen was stoked well enough with pots and pans and dishes. The neighbors are cool. Despite the lack of privacy, the place feels pretty safe. This place is cool for view of the ocean, but for the price, it's not worth it. It's been used hard.
Manager response:

Kinda disappointed in my $1700/2day birthday weekend here! There is access to WATER but no BEACh because of high tide. The main reason I got this place is because I wanted a private beach for me and my friends but we still ended up walking 25min to the beach by the pier. 85 degree house with no ac. The bath fan feels like a blow dryer is hitting you while using the toilet. No screen on back door which lets all the flies in. The back door has the worst instructions, the stickers are all faded so you can’t read how to close it. Pulled out the sleeper couch in the living room from my guest to find a big nasty stain on that mattress. One of the benches on the patio is broken & just sitting on the floor, at least throw it away! the back windows are filthy with old bird droppings and look like the haven’t been cleaned in awhile. Neighbor was very nice but took up the entire driveway the 2nd night so we couldn’t use the garage even after we asked them to move there car. Also Vrbo and Vacasa listings don’t match up. States “Heat and cooling” but I found out that doesn’t mean AC! Amenities actually missing that were listed? No coffee grinder or filters & I couldn’t find the ironing board. Also it s a boogie board here on the property, not a surfboard. This place doesn’t even have a first aid kit? Manager was nice an offered to bring me salt and pepper because I was expecting at least something simple like that to be there but anytime I had a question the excuse was, “we do not advertise that on the listing” and my response was for $1700 for 2 nights I had higher expectations. Place was cool & amazing views but not for that price! Super disappointed this was my first time using Vrbo/vacasa & will probably be my last after this experience.
Manager response:
Hi, Valdez! We appreciate your suggestion for a first aid kit and have added this to the home. A deep cleaning has been done on the home, and we have scheduled a clean for the sleeper sofa. Thank you!

Loved it here!! I will definitely be back
JEFFREY G. Jul 2020
A great view from the patio, lots to explore along the shore and for snorkeling,
Frieda M. Mar 2020
WOW!!!! Incredible views! We were mesmerized by the view of the Pacific Ocean! Floor-to-ceiling view across the west end of the house is hard to beat! Updated kitchen had everything we needed! Garage parking was amazing!
Tyler D. Feb 2020
Couldn’t ask for better views, minutes from everything you could want to do in San Diego
Janis B. Feb 2020
Right on the ocean where we could hear the waves crashing against the rocks.
Janet D. Feb 2020
Beautiful views, comfortable beds, easy booking, the place was clean and organized. Wish I could've stayed longer.
Elizabeth S. Feb 2020
Beautiful ocean views! Home is updated and is true to the pictures posted. Had an amazing time with my husband, brother and his wife at this seaside cottage. Would definitely consider staying here again.
Robert H. Dec 2019
Loved sitting on the patio and watching the amazing sunsets!
Michael T. Dec 2019
This place is conveniently located by restaurants and shops that are only .60 miles away and is an easy walk. You are also just .50 miles away from sunset cliffs! The view is amazing with the addition of the back patio area where most places just have windows and no patio. The inside was clean, cozy, and modern/beach. I would definitely stay here again.
Brandon W. Dec 2019
Everything was great about this place!
william j l. Nov 2019
we loved everything about the rental unit and the view was fantastic. we have recommend it to a couple of our family travelers and friends.
China C. Nov 2019
Loved the location - right on the edge of the cliff, walking distance to the center of OB. Super quiet and well furnished.
Annette S. Oct 2019
Great location and views to die for. Everything was very clean and nicely appointed. While there is a garage, be aware that it is on the small side. Would definitely stay here again if in the area.
James F. Oct 2019
views are awesome. We plan to return
Weston P. Sep 2019
Great View and Clean. Overall process was very easy and no AC was the only hang up.
Willaim S. Jun 2019
The house is updated inside, terrific views and the garage is a life saver. Could use a bit more TLC. Went with another couple and the only real way to get to the back bedroom is through the front bedroom (if you want to stay in the house). Grill is good. privacy. If views are you then this place is the one!
