About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4

New Totally Renovated Cliffside Whitewater Views !

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 each door to a panoramic ocean view from the cliff overlooking the water a few yards below! The shared backyard is large and spacious and includes patio furniture, lounge chairs, gas BBQs and hot tub. The perfect place to relax and spend time with family and friends. Beach access is less than a 1/2 a block away.

Also your cottage is just steps away from Sunset Cliffs Park and its many hidden beaches. Named for its exquisite sunset vistas, Sunset Cliffs 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.

Pleasantly surprised at the proximity to the beauty of the ocean at San Diego's Sunset Cliffs. Beautifully renovated cottage with private parking, easy walk to everything and such a great value ... can't wait to come back!!

180-degree ocean view, cozy interior and great location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this fantastic beach cottage during Thanksgiving week and it was perfect. It has everything you need and everything you would want (stunning ocean views of beautiful Sunset Cliffs!!!) in the best beach town (Ocean Beach) in San Diego. We feel confident in stating that last point because we used to live in San Diego for 13 years prior to moving to Denver and Ocean Beach was where we spent the bulk of our time. It offers delicious restaurants (make sure to try South Beach, Raglan, Sundara and Azucar) and a laid-back beach vibe that's exactly what you want while on vacation. And this beach cottage is icing on the cake. The photos online make it look great, but when you walk in, you will be blown away that you are getting to stay in such a gorgeous place and location (180-degree unobstructed ocean views!!) for a fraction of the cost of other beach-front rentals.

Quaint cottage perfect for 2

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed in the Whitewater Cliff 1 cottage for our honeymoon and it was lovely. There was plenty of room for the two of us and the views were unbelievable. There is also a full sized kitchen which was awesome because it didn't force us to eat out all week. It's also in a great location, not in the middle of the city but also not too far away from anything in San Diego. There is a back porch that is shared amongst the cottages, as well as a hot tub (which was perfect for the cool nights in November). We really enjoyed our stay here and would definitely recommend it to anyone for their stay in San Diego.

Best View

  • 5 of 5

This is one of 4 units and is the closest one to the ocean, with amazing views of the famous sunset cliffs from the sliding glass door and from the kitchen table. The unit is extremely spacious for two people and was very clean and well kept. There is a walkway alongside the kitchen so passerbys will have a nice view of everything(one) in the kitchen unless you close the blinds. Same goes if anybody chooses to sit in outdoor seating right outside sliding glass door in living room. Kitchen has all necessary cooking tools and there is a grill outside. There is a pull out couch in the living room which would make it very easy to lodge up to 4 people. The common space along the cliffs is really what makes this place amazing. There is a jacuzzi overlooking the cliffs and ocean with unbelievable sunsets and about 4 sitting areas (1 with a nice table) which are pretty well spaced out. We were very fortunate that the common space was pretty empty during our 4 night stay but could see it being a little awkward if there were a lot of people hanging out there, depending on the people. Lastly, Lorie and Mike are amazing owners and very accommodating!

a little bit of heaven

  • 5 of 5

We simply loved it! Everything about this stay was perfect. The cottage was so very nice and comfortable and all our needs were met. I have been to no other place to stay that was nicer then this. We have stayed at 2 high end hotels in San Diego but this one blew them out of the water. The scenery was spectacular. There were things to do and explore and it ended up being my bucket list beach cottage stay. I only wish I could afford to stay there for a month. Thank you so much for all those special memories.
