We are really enjoying this vacation

Dear Dennis and Julie

My husband & I discovered long ago that we are not travelers – we are dwellers and always seek to find a home away from home wherever we go. We also had a hectic year and craved a laid back vacation. This was perfect! Our 18 month old had a great time. We appreciated how well – equipped the place was – especially. Because our car was pretty full! Loved the fact that the bungalow was well appointed & not filled with cast off furniture and liens.

We hope to come back again soon.

Really enjoyed "Cape-Cod" Bungalow

We really enjoyed our stay at the Cape Cod Bungalow. Everyone that I told about it couldn't believe how much you provide in your rentals. They were very jealous of how close we were to the beach too. I have already referred a couple of them to your website. One lady I work with wishes she knew about your Pacific Beach house. She's headed over there next week and is staying in a "shack" (her words) for much more. She was ready to book a week in the fall! I'm sure she'll think about you next time. We may even book that one next year too.

In case you hadn't had an opportunity to look at the Sea World Website I thought I'd send you a couple of links. The first one is to the Camp website.

This lists the camps that are available. The camp Kristina did was under Resident Camps.
The second link is one that is given to the campers parents. It allows parents to see what is going on at camp or send an email to a camper.

This site also has photos of each camp. This is where you really get to see what the kids do. If you click on Camp Pictures, then a date you get to a screen that lists the different camps. Just pick the one for the appropriate grade to see what the campers are doing. I think your son would really enjoy career camp because they get to work behind the scenes and learn a lot about oceanography and marine life. They also get to enjoy all of the shows and rides at the park every evening for free. Kristina wants to go back again next year for her third year.

If you have any questions about the camp just let me know.

Thanks again for a beautiful stay and the conversations. Bill really enjoyed talking with Dennis while he was alone that week. We will refer everyone we know!

Take care,
Gretchen & Bill

Everything was great!

Thanks again for providing such a nice place to stay. We were all very comfortable and relaxed in your home. It truly was a home away from home. We enjoyed the game room, plasma TV, the wide open space, and the views. The home had everything we needed, and we really appreciate you bringing the wine glasses. The home felt and looked like it was brand new, and I would highly recommend this place to my friends traveling to San Diego.

Everything was great!

Thank you.
Alex, Shane, Suzanne, and Liz.


"Dear Dennis and Julie,

Fresh flowers, red wine and a house full of friendly amenities awaited when we arrived in San Diego at your adorable place. The bungalow was a quick drive to Old Tow and Seaworld and a hop away from the airport. We couldn't think of one thing we didn't have at our immediate disposal in your beach house. Travel guides, maps, menus, beach bikes, a stocked kitchen of utensils and so much more. Your washer and dryer were a lifesaver too. Thank you for making our beach vacation so homey. Cheers!"

Rachel, Hawaii The Smiths, New York

Thanks so much
“Thanks so much for a great place to stay!"

Best equipped

Dear Dennis and Julie,
”As you know we arrived from San Jacinto Mountains and your beautifully designed and appointed cottage was something of a culture shock – a nice shock of course. This was the third such property that we have used in the United States and it is the best equipped.
We loved San Diego but grew found of Voltaire Street too. It’s a great place and having met you last Saturday, I know that you want people to enjoy themselves. That makes deference too.

Best Wishes

We have enjoyed a lovely week at the bungalow. Having never spent much time in Ocean Beach we were wonderfully surprised with everything. Friendly people, great beach, and running trials An absolutely perfect week.
Thank you for everything

Enjoyable family vacation
"Had an enjoyable family vacation The bungalow was very nice and well kept.
Very pleased

"Being originally from San Diego, we knew we wanted a Ocean Beach experience for our vacation. We were very pleased with the bungalow”


Dear Dennis and Julie
Had an absolutely fantastic time at the bungalow. Everything was perfect. The people were so nice and the beach was very fun.
Surf lesions at the OB Surf Shop were so fun. My 3 kids got up first and it was a reasonable price. 
We would love to come back again.
Thanks for everything, had an awesome time.

Thanks for everything!

Dear Dennis and Julie

We had a great time at your bungalow. Thanks for everything! This is one of the best we stayed at so far. The atmosphere is great and we felt a little bit like home in Germany. We will be back soon (perhaps next summer) to stay at your house again.
Thanks for everything
Michaela, Andreas & Zoe

Very comfortable here

Dear Dennis and Julie
Thanks so much for a great stay! Liz and I will always remember our stay. It was a truly a home away from home. We felt very comfortable here. We took your advice and went to Point Loma Light house – Awesome!
Thanks again for everything. Hope to be back one day soon!

A great place to stay

A great place to stay – home a way from home. OB is a unique little community – one we came to appreciate more and more each day we were here. It was so nice to return to the bungalow each afternoon after a day of exploring San Diego and Mexico. We could get back and relax some more. The kids loved the boogie boards and loved watching dad make a fool of him self on the surfboard.

Thanks very much

Absolutely fantastic time in Ocean Beach!

Had an absolutely fantastic time in Ocean Beach! The bungalow is absolutely gorgeous – a perfect place to spend our honeymoon! As someone else has previously written - the extra touches certainly don’t go unnoticed! We managed to pack loads into our 10 day stay. Couldn’t believe how wonderful and varied the county side, flora and fauna is in Southern California. Not looking forward to going home to land locked Stratford – Avon (England)
We going to start saving up to return…..

Happy Honeymoon!

Dear Dennis and Julie
Happy Honeymoon! We could not have picked a better place to spend our first week together as a married couple! We absolutely loved the bungalow – It was everything we could have asked for. You have really gone out of your way to make it feel like home. In fact, it is nicer than home for us – we don’t want to leave! We had beautiful weather – a nice change from the 40* of Minnesota this time of year. Obis a wonderful community with a courageous spirit that we won’t soon forget. Matt and I made it to see the Giant Sequoias, the desert, San Diego Zoo and the Wield Animal Park, but looked forward to coming home to this beautiful bungalow.
Thank You for allowing us to stay in your home. We had the perfect honeymoon!!!!

What a charming place...

We’ve had a wonderful week, celebrating our 7th anniversary. Beautiful weather, in your sea side bungalow. We’ve slept well, eat well, and played hard. Everything we wanted or needed was right here. What a charming place, with your usual warm welcome & hospitably.

Enjoyed my vacation

Dear Dennis and Julie
I enjoyed my vacation and the theme of the house. My bed was so comfortable. I wanted to sleep in it all week long (she slept on the pullout sofa). I loved Dog Beach. The current was so strong; I couldn’t swim, but it was still fun.
Thank you
Emma (7 years old)
We have enjoyed a wonderful week in the Bahamas bungalow, Thank You. You have truly thought of everything! The friendliness of Ocean Beach was truly welcoming! Thank you again for a lovely vacation. We work hard and play hard too.
Thanks for helping to make it possible.

"Hostess with the Mostes"

Dennis and Julie,
”There are no words for your generosity and hospitality. Truly you are the “Hostess with the Mostes” You have the most charming place and the rate were great. Our departure date came and we did not want to leave. We had a fabulous and relaxing time! Thanks for providing us with a home-a-way from home. We’ll recommend this place to everyone we know.
Thanks again
Melissa and Tony

Thank you so much

Dear Dennis and Julie,
Out of the 64 places that I booked marked on the internet, the Bahamas bungalow was the only one I kept coming back to. I fell in love with it online. I booked-marked some ocean-fronts at three times the price – but none had the charm and style of this unit. The new paint is marvelous, So with the Cape Cod everything was immaculate and perfectly appointed. I still can’t get over how lovely everything is. The only thing wrong is that I don’t own the bungalow.

"I am glad that you could stay a full month, Thank you".
Dennis and Julie

What a great place!

What a great place! The house is exceptional. The location is great as well-easy to get to anywhere and the beach is only a few hundred feet away. And when you say that you have provided everything you need. That’s right on….
Thanks for providing a great place to call home in San Diego

Brian and Stephanie,

Great times

We had a great time here in OB and we also had a wonderful time here at your place. We would recommend this place to our friends and family.

Fantastic week

Dear Dennis and Julie
Thank you so much for a fantastic week. The house was so comfortable and decorated beautifully. You thought of everything. Thank you for the bottle of wine, what a special touch. We all had such a wonderful time. We’ll definitely be back. Thanks so much for everything.

Many Thanks
Rachel and Robert

Perfect home away from home for our family

We really enjoyed our week here. The bungalow has been a perfect home away home for our family. I wish I had another week to stay and enjoy the house, neighborhood and wonderful San Diego. Because we have a 2 year old, we spent 3 days at Sea World, 2 days at the Zoo and the other 2 visiting Balboa Park’s Museums. We really enjoyed the convenience of this location and your remodel is out of this world!

Many Thanks
Rachel and Robert

We love the bungalow near beach

We love the bungalow and the location near the beach. OB has a lot of character and Newport Ave is a kick for shopping, dinning and nightlife. We appreciated how “homey the bungalow is – we felt like after this week that we have a 2nd home/town that we fit into. The high-speed internet connection was crucial. Sunset Cliffs was a must for the sunsets!

Thanks! Brad & Katie

We loved our stay in your Cape Cod bungalow!

We loved our stay in your Cape Cod bungalow! The décor and cleanliness was exceptional. We enjoyed the shops, restaurants, beaches and the area in general. Thanks for offering a great place to stay. We hope to visit again soon.

The Moore’s

The cottage is perfect!

Once again (second year) we had a beautiful “oasis” to spend time at while we also worked a conference downtown. We had the good sense to come a day early so we could really roam OB- which is delightful! Great antique shops up Newport Ave, plus the lobster tacos at South Beach Bar are truly wonderful (not to mention the hot waffle ice-cream sandwiches next door!) The cottage is perfect! See you next year….


We love being here

We love being here. A great spot. We will recommend to our families.
Top ten things we loved about this cottage

Love your house

We just loved this little house!! Been to OB a couple of times before, but stayed in hotels. This was far the best!! I love to cook, so it was nice to have a kitchen. You have definitely thought of everything!! I will be back next year again for Spring Break. This is the best location. My daughter loved it.

Thanks Again
Mark, Shana and Trinity

Dennis and Julie
We had a great time here! Thanks for stocking the bungalow with all the necessary wonderful things on my vacation: sunscreen, beach chairs and a washer and dryer. Our honeymoon could not have been more perfect.

Beautiful as last year

This is my 2nd time renting the Cape Cod bungalow, this year for 5 weeks. I was pleased to see that it has held up very well in the intervening year and was as clean, neat and beautiful as last year. I was most impressed with the new addition of the easy to use high-speed internet, which I used daily to keep in touch with my world back home. This year I returned to many of my haunts from last year.( Balboa Park, Cabrillo National Monument (check out the tide pools at low tide, especially if you have kids), Torrey Pines( where I saw migrating Grey Whales, 3 different times),the glider port, the seals in La Jolla, the Zoo and the Wild Animal Park, but also had more time to discover OB on foot and found good restaurants and interesting little shops and the huge antique stores on Newport Ave. Some great stuff there. Enjoyed the sunsets at the beach. Dennis was very helpful with any concerns I had. I will be back next year (if I don’t move to San Diego before. It is a definite possibility.

Cape Cod cottage is Gorgeous!

This was the best vacation!

This was the best vacation! The bungalow was a big- BIG- part of it. If I could, I’d take 3 things- the duvet, the blanket throw and the sectional. So Comfy. We had the best food at Hodads for hamburgers are a must. We laughed so hard trying to eat the double bacon cheeseburger. (My son and I split ½). Had to do laundry when we got home. The beach, La Jolla, Cabrillo were all wonderful. Thanks for having us as your guest. We hate to leave.

Kattie, Deiff and Chris

See you next Year!

Wonderful Bungalow

We have been waiting for our San Diego vacation since April (when we booked the bungalow). And it meets all of our expectations. Once we stepped into the bungalow we were in an instant relaxation mod and maintained that all week. This was all credit to the wonderful bungalow and the wonderful environment that it offered. When we came here we had no plans at all, however Ocean Beach and San Diego kept us occupied. We visited: Sea World, San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park, Coronado, Mission Beach and San Yisdro. Thank you for giving us a home away from home.


The Cottage was such a pleasant surprise

The Cottage was such a pleasant surprise. You see the pictures and you hope it will be as good as it looks. This was better than we ever expected. You really thought of everything that we would need away from home. We would definitely stay here again.

Thanks Dennis and Ann

We found the place!

Dear Dennis and Julie
"We were looking for a nice place to relax and "get away from it all and celebrate 25 years of marriage." And we found the place! Walks on the beach, bike trips to Mission Beach, Glass of wine and chatting on the patio. Even the tourist trips to Sea World made this one of the best vacations ever! Looking for places on the internet can always be a gamble - but this time we took the big prize! The place feels like home and became an oasis from the real world !"
Thank you for your hospitality

What a wonderful way to spend our annual " Conference" time

Dear Julie and Dennis

"What a wonderful way to spend our annual " Conference" time. Up early to walk the beach -- and evenings unwinding after a hard day"s work. We so love the cottage and want to book it for year's conference too.
A clean, well appointed refuge from the hectic conference schedule. Also enjoyed the beach and charm of OB, away from the sterile environment elsewhere. We are ready to rebook this place now. "
