About the neighbourhood
The Sunset Cottage sits in the San Diego residential neighborhood of Ocean Beach (OB) - between Sunset Cliffs and the OB business district. The cottage is close enough to stay connected to the local scene (walk to the public beach, restaurants, dining and shopping) but far enough away to enjoy quite relaxation, sounds of splashing waves, and the ease of on-street parking - often right in front of the cottage.

The Sunset Cottage is two blocks from the coastline and secluded beaches, and is a short 10-15 min stroll to shops, restaurants, entertainment, and the public beach - offering lifeguard-supervised swimming and surfing areas, restrooms, and showers.

The Sunset Cottage is centrally located and a short 5-15 min drive to most area Universities, Sea World, Lego Land, Animal Safa...
