Fabulous summer vacation hang-out
A great house in a great location. Palm trees everywhere in front of the house, with very entertaining resident nesting parrots. Stroll 50 yards to the end of the street to find the ocean. Take in a sunset. Walk down the steps and 2 minutes around the path to Ocean Beach. Walk out along the pier to the Café and order huevos rancheros & coffee for breakfast. Come back to the large sandy beach. Surfers, kids, families, super-relaxed atmosphere. A bunch of lively bars, and restaurants & shops in the streets behind the beach. Bikes for hire. An excellent gym at Robb Field at the end of the street. Back to the house. Look at the photos--it's for real. The house has been immaculately renovated, inside & out, in wild colors--blue, green, purple, yellow. The owners are musicians. Classic guitars hang from the walls. Album covers from Hendrix thru Bowie to Jackson. Peace & love everywhere. The wifi works great. The sound system works great thru Bluetooth. There's a huge screen in the living room, perfect for Netflix movies & Amazon Prime. Double doors open out onto the front patio where there's a table & bench for al fresco dining. And the kitchen is brand new, with all the mod-cons. The owners invite you to dip into their collection of herb teas and other goodies. Upstairs, there's a master bedroom & bathroom. Plenty of hanging & storage space. And a double bed with massage and other features. Also a second bedroom with a single bed and more storage. Last but not least, a rooftop deck, with purple lighting, perfect to enjoy the sea breeze as the sun goes down--and to watch the Sea World fireworks around 9pm. And since parking can be a problem at Ocean Beach, there's a dedicated parking spot in the alley behind the house. We stayed for seven weeks in July & August. The owners and their friends were totally accessible by text or email whenever we had any queries (not often). We bought our food & wines from the Olive Tree Market, walking distance two blocks up the street. Truly a fabulous summer vacation hang-out.
Ocean Beach gem! Walk to beach, pier, shopping, restaurants
