Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4

***Rare Cancellation***

Last summer dates Aug 14th - 18th & Aug 29th - Sept 1st

New to Market - Ocean Front Stunner !

Enjoy the panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean from the shared yard.

This one bedroom, one bath house is fully furnished with all the amenities including a fully equipped kitchen that allows you to prepare meals at home. The house comfortably sleeps 4 people. The master bedroom has a queen size bed and a sofa sleeper in the living room. Step out the back door to a panoramic ocean view and walk 6 steps to the cliff overlooking the water below! The shared backyard is large and spacious and includes patio furniture, lounge chairs, hot tub and gas BBQs. The perfect place to relax and spend time with family and friends. Beach access is less than a 1/2 a block away.

Just steps away from Sunset Cliffs Park with its many hidden beaches and named for its exquisite sunset vistas, this park encompasses 68 acres of bluffs and walking paths high above the wide expanse of the Pacific Ocean. With its rugged coastline and panoramic views, this area is popular with surfers, ocean-gazers, and folks who like to cruise Sunset Cliffs Boulevard, which runs the length of the cliffs. Drive along Sunset Cliffs Boulevard and enjoy breathtaking views and photo opportunities. It also makes a nice bike ride or walk, and it’s a great place to watch birds. You can see migrating California gray whales during the winter months from high on the bluffs.

Ocean beach is a relaxed beach town, encounter a distinctive downtown district just steps from the ocean, enjoy San Diego's finest and largest Farmers Market, experience the original Dog Beach, or stroll on the longest concrete pier on the west coast. We are located across the bay a few minutes by car from the popular Sea World, 5 minutes from the San Diego Airport and 10 minutes from the World Famous San Diego Zoo, Petco Park and the Gas Lamp District.

Definitely romantic

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific time at the romantic mermaid. When we arrived, we were pleased to find that the cottage looked even better in person than it did in the photographs on the website. David was in constant communication with us, and gave us all the details, so there were no questions unanswered. We haven't ever rented a place like this before – always used hotels, And weren't really sure what to expect. It was really nice to have a property manager that was so readily available and willing to help. Everything you need was at the cottage. They have boogie boards, beach chairs, Three barbecues and all the kitchen items that you would need. They even have stocked it with ketchup, mustard, tinfoil and baggies to make your stay more like a home away from home. You can't beat the view either, nor can you get any closer to Sunset Cliffs because the property is on it! The back patio has unbelieveable views and has two hot tubs overlooking the surf. We were very happy that we chose this property for our vacation and would highly recommend traveling this way instead of using a hotel for a beach getaway.

Great little getaway in San Diego

  • 5 of 5

This little cottage was a perfect getaway for us. We wanted to spend some quiet time enjoying the ocean while being able to access the city easily. We were so glad we chose the property on Pescadero. It's right smack dab on Sunset Cliffs. You can't get any closer to the ocean and the back patio area was an amazing spot to sunbathe, relax with a bottle of wine and enjoy the sunsets. The cottage is super close to all that San Diego has to offer. We did our share of sightseeing, but really enjoyed staying in our beautiful cottage and enjoying the property. We will definitely go back when we want a special weekend getaway.

Awesome Ocean View

  • 5 of 5

When we originally reserved the unit, we didn't realize that the view of the ocean was from the back patio area that is shared with 3 other units. But that turned out just fine. We pretty much had the patio area to ourselves when we were out there and it was never an issue.

They have the hot tubs, a fire pit and chairs facing the ocean on the private patio which is situated at the ocean front cliff's edge (the property is located way above the water line).

Our stay was great! The owner even had a bottle of champagne awaiting us as we let them know we were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary.

We walked down to the pier and the downtown area of Ocean Beach for restaurants and sight seeing. It was great!

Even better than expected!!!

  • 5 of 5

This place was absolutely amazing!!! The cottage was so comfortable!! Everything from start to finish was so easy. The view from outside was stunning. The bed was unbelievably comfortable. It was pretty hot the weekend we were there but the owners were so accommodating and left us extra fans with a little note on them. I can't say enough great things about this place. We decided it's "our spot" when we visit San Diego!!

Ok place to stay, not very private.

  • 3 of 5

We went to celebrate our anniversary. It was a nice little, and I mean little, cottage. The pictures make it look way bigger than it is. It was very nicely updated with modern designing. You need to know that this is one of 4 cottages right next to each other. There is a common ground with 2 hot tubs, outdoor furniture, etc. However, this area is right out the door of one of the cottages. This leaves almost no privacy for the nicest cottage. Know that only 2 of the cottages have at least a partial view of the ocean.

Overall, this place would be great for a family vacation, but I would not recommend it for couples looking to slip away and relax alone. Hope this helped!

Owner's Response: Considering couples LOVE our little beach getaway we were surprised by Jonathan's response. We have had many, many happy honeymooners and anniversary celebrators here and other women who have fallen in love with the property from a "girl's getaway" weekend have even come back to get married on the property. We do know that Jonathan booked with us asking zero questions, never once responded to any of our emails delivering info and heard nothing but crickets from him when we very nicely asked for add'l clarification of his review. We love to communicate with our guests and make sure every stay and expectation is met. We are waiting to host you, just contact us for a great beach visit :) -Lorie & Mike
