Whitewater Cliff - On The Water Ocean Front Cottage

Delightful beach cottage with a spa tub
*** Covid-19 Update*** Come on in, the water's fine - surfing is back, restaurants are opening and more regulations lifting everyday as San Diego nears getting back to normal. Best and closest ocean view on the coast from our patio shared by our four private cottages. This common lounging area has plenty of room to spread out and contains our BBQs & hot tub. Sanitation protocol has been stepped up but we are discouraging bringing your pet dog at this time (write us first before bringing a pet for add'l info). Also no smoking now on the property - please take a walk when you do. We also have a much more friendly cancellation policy than HomeAway/VRBO allows here. Amazingly Renovated Cliffside Whitewater Views with new AC/Heating unit recently installed Enjoy the panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean from the shared yard and we have free private off street parking. 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. This one bedroom cottage comfortably sleeps a couple, a couple with children on the pullout or even two couples in a pinch though we recommend renting two units in that case. 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 BBQ(s) and hot tub. The perfect place to relax and spend time with family and friends. We are also 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. While our neighborhood beach stairs are closed to damage at the moment, there is another set of stairs 1/2 block north of us to a cobblestone beach and a block north of there are stairs to a cement walking path along the water leading to a hidden sandy cove at Santa Cruz Ave (with summer lifeguard on weekends) as well as the long expanse of sandy beach starting at the pier in front of the town of Ocean Beach itself. 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, 10 minutes from the San Diego Airport and less than 20 minutes from the World Famous San Diego Zoo, Petco Park and the Gas Lamp District. *Ask about our other vacation rentals next door

5/5 Excellent

These quaint lil cottages are in the perfect location, walking distance to sunset cliffs park... we had so much fun sitting in the hot tub, watching the surfers and the most amazing sunsets. Close to restaurants and Ocean Beach.

5/5 Excellent

Ocean Beach is amazing
We were pleased with this rental property. Everything stated was just like it was in person. The ocean view is simply breathtaking! Would definitely recommend this property!!

5/5 Excellent

Great place!
Adorable unit right on the water with amazing ocean views! Sunset cliffs and Newport Ave super close. Very quiet. Plenty of seating on the shared space- but we hardly saw other guests. Bed was comfortable and unit clean. Special thanks to the property manager and owners for letting me reschedule my stay from when I had to cancel last minute earlier this year We will be back!

5/5 Excellent

Top Notch Stay
Once again, Mike & Lorie helped make a special weekend Great! David responded quickly to a trouble call and the problem was resolved satisfactorily right away, (turned out to be a battery issue) My wife and I stayed here about 4 years ago and had a fantastic time and we have stayed in the area at other places but nothing tops this!! Great Location! Great Views! Great assortment of restaurants nearby, many walking distance away! We just needed to relax for our 38th Wedding Anniversary and found this to be the perfect spot! Hot tub was great and we spent more time outside than inside because of the large patio and beautiful sounds and sights from there. We will be back sooner rather than later! Like another post, I hate to say such positive things but I can't keep this place to myself. You won't be disappointed! Thanks again! Cheers! Just a friendly tip, when you come, and you should, bring a small to midsize car or truck as this community is small and parking is best suited for them.

5/5 Excellent

A little piece of Heaven
I absolutely loved my stay here and will probably be booking again in the next few months. What a beautiful place this is!!
