4. The unit will be fully stocked

The space
The perfect combo of waves, breezes, and location built into a charming bungalow as close to the action as you can get. This section of Ocean Beach is close to everything...within steps: the main beach, dog beach, best restaurants, & great bars! Walk out the front door, down the alleyway, and within 25 yards you're on the main beach! If you're in the mood for a social beach day - then walk one step forward and you're in the sand - you made it!
If you're looking something more laid back i.e. picturesque cliffs, restaurants, bars, shops, great people, and everything else Ocean Beach has to offer then just walk around your neighboring streets - congrats, you've arrived!

***UPDATE:
1. This property was upgraded and re-designed as of 02/19
2. We now offer pet-sitting nearby! If you come with your pets but still want to take in some of the local culture where pets may not be allowed, include some details about your furry friends and the dates you may need and we will try to accommodate!***

Guest access
You'll have full run of the studio! If you're going out for dinner or drinks while in the area, we highly recommend walking, renting City Bikes, or using Uber/Lyft - we can set you up with a code to use if you're not familiar with it :)

Other things to note
- Bed setup - 1 full sized bed for two people + 1 twin sized bed for a third person
- There is a Chromecast installed in the 1080p HD TV - download the mobile app or use your laptop to stream Netflix, Hulu, or anything else : )
- Use our boogie board when you go to the beach.
- Referral available for discounted rentals: Standup paddle boards (SUP), surf boards, boogie boards, add'l beach cruisers, and snorkel/scuba gear
- There is a full kitchen with everything you would need to cook a meal - we even provide a pantry of basic cooking essentials (sugar, flour, oil, etc.)
- Outdoor security system sees front door for guest safety.
- This is a close quarters duplex near the beach so noise can travel easily, be courteous and nicely ask for the same from the neighbors if necessary - everyone is pleasant as per the SD attitude : )
- All of Ocean Beach is in the flight path of the airport's take-off routine. It is not terribly loud but it is noticeable. The official curfew is 11:30pm - 6:30am but Jet Blue, United, and Delta regularly break the curfew : / (Fly Southwest next time and keep OB quieter : )
