The spot is ideal for a single person or a couple... or a super deal for a young family of up to 4 people on a modest vacation budget. Only four blocks to the beach, and even closer to great neighborhood restaurants! A very popular vacation rental!

There's also a front cottage on this property (which has a porch instead of a patio) with the same size and configuration that's also available on AirBnb.

The space

The cottage includes a bedroom with a full-sized bed, a living room with a pull-out sofa and TV (with cable and wifi), and a full kitchen. An individual cot and full-size air mattress are available upon request. There is a private courtyard in front of the cottage's main entrance.

Guest access

Guests have access to everything inside the house -- as well as washer/dryer just outside the front door.

Interaction with guests

I may be at the property. If not, a friend and neighbor -- who helps to oversee the property -- will be around to help out with anything you might need.

Michael was a charming and accessible host. He and his property manager were very helpful and prompt in their responses to any question or concern I had. The cottage and neighborhood were charming! It was close to town and beach. I loved it and had a wonderful month in Ocean Beach!

Michael was great about the rental. He was very responsive to our requests I was there with 2 of my other friends and the cottage was perfect size. The house had a good vibe, it was super close to the beach and the neighborhood was fantastic. We walked to the beach almost every morning and evening. There was no AC but with the windows open it stayed fairly cool for us. Finding the home was a bit challenging because the home was stacked so on the first night we got there the address wasn't clearly marked. Also this was my first time using AirBnB so something that was a bit surprising to me were the amount of fees associated with the rental, I ended up paying nearly $200 more just in fees. This was not something Michael had control over, I just wanted to put it out there for any new people to AirBnB

Response from Michael:
I was happy to have you and your friends as guests, Kendra! I'm also quite happy that your first AirBnb experience was a positive one! As you mentioned, there are fees outside of the control of the host that you experienced. These were a combination of AirBnb fees and local taxes. The local tax fees vary from city to city as AirBnb works out arrangements with each. It's my hope that there's increased transparency to both the host and the guest by AirBnb as they roll out these new city-specific agreements.

We had a great time in Ocean Beach for a week's vacation! This is a perfect base to explore all of San Diego. It was great also to leave the car in our designated parking spot behind the cottage. The cottage is basic with room enough for the three of us. I slept perfectly every night! It was really nice to sit outside in the courtyard after a day at the beach or exploring. Michael was a great host, with great communication all around. We loved the location in a quiet neighborhood within walking distance to the beach (under a mile), restaurants and stores. We also loved exploring the other beaches, just 15 minutes by car. San Diego was a fun family trip. Thanks, Mike!

Michael was easy to communicate with, gave us great recommendations for local spots near by, and his place was close to the beach. As an added bonus, parking was very easy (even on the weekend). Michael was there to check us in and was very flexible with timing. It was a great spot to be close to Ocean Beach without being directly in the mix. It took us about 10 minutes to walk to the beach/restaurants/shops.

Perfect place for a weekend getaway, or longer. The location was superb as it was close to the beach and great restaurants. Everything we were looking for. Very clean and comfortable. I encourage a small family or couple to stay, it worked out great for us.

Michael was a great host. He got back to me in a timely manner, kept me updated and left detailed instructions for checking in and out. The place was small as stated and about a 10 minute walk to the beach and bars. My only complaint is that the patio looks nothing like the pictures. There is no patio furniture at all, no covering as shown and inside there are no chairs for the dining room table so bring your own chairs! Other than that we had a great time! Thanks Michael!

Response from Michael:
Thanks for the feedback, Devin. I'm in the process of updating/replacing the patio furniture, as the old items had pretty much worn out. The replacement items are arriving this week, but there was a small window during which there isn't patio furniture. My apologies that the small window occurred during your stay. :( I'm glad that you had a great time otherwise!

Good location in OB, blocks from beach; clean, equipped place. Dedicated parking place - good to have in OB. Michael was very responsive via email and made arrangements for a local contact since he was out of town.
