Description of the San Diego vacation cottage rental
Our Ocean Beach Cottage is located one block from the beach and two blocks from the Ocean Beach Pier and the lively main street of Newport Avenue. Sit on the deck and watch the waves - cannot get better than that! Fall asleep to the sound of the waves...

Lovingly restored cute & charming 1930's Beach Cottage was completely renovated in 2008, offer all the comforts of a 'home away from home'. Beautifully designed, true to the beach cottage style, bright & airy, with wood and tile floors, fully equipped kitchens, raised ceilings with fans, front & back private decks, amidst a lush garden. The Orca Cottage charmingly parades original double-hung windows and a gorgeous claw foot tub. An on-site laundry facility and a place to safely store your surfboards are provided.

Off-street reserved parking (a rare commodity in these parts) is provided.

Our minimum required stay is between 3-5 nights, depending on the season.
Area Information
Ocean Beach is a small beach town without all of the usual bells and whistles typical of most popular beach towns. It's one of the few places left in San Diego where the shops are locally owned and managed. There is a lot to be said for this funky little beach town, with its collection of antique stores, restaurants, coffee houses, bike & surf shops, musicians, activists, & artists. Located only 7 miles from San Diego Downtown and 2 miles from Sea World it offers easy access to other San Diego attractions.

Fabulous Cottage

September 10, 2015

We had a wonderful time, the cottage is beautiful and very thought out with everything you could need or want. The decor was very modern, but still felt very be beachy, Great Job! I would recommend bringing your own umbrella, the ones provided were both broke and make sure you bring beach towels.

Yasmin Bar-Maor Davis

Owner's reply:

Thanks for your great feedback and for letting us know about the broken umbrellas so we can get those replaced. We hope to see you the next time your travels bring you back to San Diego.

Great Location!

Had a great time staying at this cute little cottage. Clean and cute but you do hear planes flying overhead all night and the girls staying next door were VERY loud but the cottage itself was very nice! Great location by the beach!!!

When can we go back?

February 27, 2014

We love Ocean Beach. The cottage was located just a block from the surfer beach and close to the pier. There is a relaxed atmosphere to the area we really enjoyed. Plenty of restaurants and bars, if you want, but still quiet. The cottage felt spacious for 2 couples. It had everything we needed in the kitchen to cook meals. Cable TV and WIFI was great to have. The only issue was the washing machine was out of order, but we made due. There is airplane flyover noise, but that didn't really bother us. The wild parrots are loud in the morning, but we actually enjoyed hearing and seeing them. All in all, we loved our time there and have already recommended the place to our friends.

Extremely pleased with this rental

September 15, 2013

The property was bright, clean, and comfortable - just as advertised. The location was wonderful, close enough to the beach that we went everyday (sometimes twice a day) yet far enough away that you didn't feel like you were constantly on display. The rental is well equipped with cooking implements, towels and bedding as well as items to enjoy the out-of-doors with (beach chairs, umbrella, and body boards stored in the outer shed). Do remember to bring beach towels however as they are not provided. The internet was reliable but I cannot comment on the TV/Cable services as we never used them - Ocean Beach and the surrounding area had plenty of things to entertain us we never felt the need (and we were there a whole week). Our recommendations of things to do during your visit - explore the tide pools south of the pier, breakfast at the pier cafe, and dinner at OB Noodles.

relaxation vacation

July 9, 2012

We really enjoyed this cute cottage. My boys loved being steps from the beach and my husband and I enjoyed the fact we could cook or go for a short walk to eat. He and I really enjoyed the quiet relaxation and the boys loved the tide pools. Yasmin made our first rental experience wonderful and we can't wait to rent again.

Wonderful stay!

May 25, 2011

We were so pleased with Orca Cottage. My husband and I were traveling with our daughter & 2-year-old grandson, and the cottage was perfect for us! The beds are so comfortable, and the deck was a wonderful place to enjoy the ocean breeze and a drink. The location of the cottage is perfect, with the beach a block away, and shops & restaurants nearby. The cottage is charming, and when we needed extra sheets for our grandson's bed, they were delivered in a timely fashion. having our own parking space was an added bonus, since the town filled up on the weekend, and parking is scarce.

Wonderful Cozy Cottage

September 15, 2010

I had a very memorable experience at the cottage. We went to the cottage for our wedding weekend and it was perfect. It is a beautiful place not far from the beach. Wonderful owners!!!! I highly reccommend staying at the Orca Cottage.

fabulous cottage!

November 29, 2009

We stayed at the Orca cottage for a week. When we arrived, the grounds were all newly landscaped and beautiful. The inside was inviting and clean with every amenity we needed. Conveniently located and comfortable. Would recommend this to anyone.
