    What guests are saying:

    “I chose this spot for a mini solo retreat that much needed. And I must say this place was the perfect spot for it. I got just relaxing, nature vibes that I wanted and even the privacy I needed as well. Don’t get me wrong, Nicholas and Mara were only a text away and replied to messages very promptly. The views here were amazing and the outdoor shower was my favorite part! Definitely recommend this stay and I hope to come back again.”

  • Amazing Cottage at the Beach!

    Amazing Cottage at the Beach!

    This is truly the most amazing location!! See and hear the sounds of the ocean, which is just 50 steps from the front door! Yet far enough that you will not be overwhelmed with noise. Walk or bicycle 3 blocks to Newport Ave, OB's main street.

    What guests are saying:

    “Cute little beach cottage stole my heart. My family decided to rent the cottage as an anniversary trip during self quarantine. Directions were great. Check-in was a breeze. The description of the cottage was accurate. Joanie left us a cute gift on the table to celebrate our anniversary. There were also snacks, a few drinks in the fridge, coffee and condiments provided for our use. The beach is literally steps away and was so easy to reach. Joanie has beach equipment for use including chairs and beach toys. Beach towels are also provided. If I were to go again I would bring my own beach umbrella though as the one there is a little broken and flops over in the wind. It was a most enjoyable stay ( even during the protests). We plan on booking this comfy little beach house again in the future.”

    What guests are saying:

    “Great place to stay. Studio room was well design and decor and spacious. Alejandros customer service is top class. Whenever I texted him for someone, I had a response within an hour and he proactively makes sure you have everything you need. His place is also right by the highway (easy to get to place to place) and right next to a Starbucks.”
